Champions League: Messi scores hat trick as Barcelona blanks PSV Eindhoven

If the World Cup had given the impression that Lionel Messi was slipping down soccer’s pecking order, the Argentine star made it clear he remains at the top of his game. Messi scored a record eighth Champions League hat trick on Tuesday in Barcelona’s 4-0 win over PSV Eindhoven as Europe’s top club competition got underway. Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe, the teenage star widely viewed as the man capable of dethroning Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in a near future as the best player in the world, endured a frustrating night in a 3-2 loss with Paris Saint-Germain at Liverpool. The World

Tango in Paris

From my parents’ old house, high above the White Cliffs of Dover, you could look out across the English Channel on sunny days and see the outline of the French coast. I used to imagine that somewhere beyond the horizon there was a French version of me, a bon viveur enjoying better weather, better clothes, better friends: chic, debonair, nonchalant, hanging out in cafés and brasseries, quaffing aperitifs, maybe Champagne, living with elan and panache; living une vie en rose. This alternate life could be glimpsed on family motoring holidays in the Loire Valley or the Dordogne, or cycling through

Alouettes QB Johnny Manziel to replace struggling starter Pipkin

The quarterback carousel in Montreal has spun again, and Johnny Manziel is once again the next man up. The former Cleveland Brown took the majority of Montreal’s first-team snaps at practice on Monday and will take over from quarterback Antonio Pipkin when the Alouettes (3-9-0) visit the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday. Pipkin, 23, started the last four games for Montreal but threw four interceptions in a 32-14 loss to the visiting B.C. Lions last Friday. “I think Johnny deserves the opportunity to play this week based on last week,” Alouettes head coach Mike Sherman said after practice. Sherman also

POV podcast: Stephanie Labbe plays the long game

Stephanie Labbe approaches soccer like Bobby Fischer approached  chess. She’s thinking many, many moves ahead. So — when the  goal is unprecedented, like getting Canada atop the World Cup podium, Labbe takes an unprecedented approach. She joined a men’s team in the Premiere Development league so she could face an exceptional proving ground between the pipes. No one questioned her skill: she stoned the best they could throw at her. But the league played the gender card: men only. Labbe was ready for that. Plan B? Learn. Adjust. Move on. In the latest podcast, Steph and her old bud Anastasia Bucsis talk about Labbe’s next step,

Rays set Stroman ablaze to beat down Jays

Toronto Blue Jays starter Marcus Stroman and his ailing finger pointed the blame at himself for his most recent outing.

“I just had no feel today,” he said. “I didn’t make the pitches I needed to and I kind of paid the price. I didn’t execute.”

Stroman was pulled in the second inning after allowing four runs and six hits as the Tampa Bay Rays defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 7-1 on Monday.

The 27-year-old was making his first start since Aug. 17. Stroman (4-9) was activated from the disabled list after a struggling with recurring finger blister that refused to fully heal between scheduled starts.

Despite over two weeks off before coming back against the Rays (74-63), Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Stroman is still dealing with the injury.

“There’s no doubt it’s still bothering him,” he said. “More than anything, it’s the grip and feel.”

The Blue Jays (62-75) have little to compete for in the standings down the stretch. The club’s top players have been traded to contenders and playoff aspirations are non-existent.

Priding himself a fighter, Stroman shot down the suggestion of shutting down for the remainder of the season.

“I like to compete. I don’t like sitting. I only get to go out there one every five days to begin with,” he said. “Being out there every fifth day is a priority. I hate being on the DL. I hate watching. I hate not being out there. It frustrates me. It kills me inside, honestly. I’m going to do everything in my power to be out there.”

Stroman said his finger looked like it had a hole in it ten days ago and credited the training staff for preparing him to make his return Monday.

However, the trainers will likely err on the side of caution regarding Stroman’s immediate future.

“That’s probably what’s going to happen,” Gibbons said at the suggestion of shutting Stroman down. “We’ll have to see, I don’t know yet. In all fairness to him. It’s clearly affecting him, there’s no doubt.”

Yonny Chirinos (3-5) was solid in relief for Tampa Bay. Pitching after starter Ryne Stanek was pulled following one inning, Chirinos allowed just one run, four hits and three walks over seven innings of work. He also struck out five batters.

The Rays opened the scoring in the first inning. Tommy Pham hit an RBI single to give Tampa Bay a 1-0 lead.

Tampa Bay would pad their lead in the second inning. Mallex Smith hit an RBI single. Matt Duffy would follow with a two-run double to give Tampa Bay a 4-0 lead.

Later in the inning, the Blue Jays got on the scoreboard. Teoscar Hernandez hit an RBI single to cut the Rays lead to 4-1.

The Rays restored their four-run lead in the third. Kevin Kiermaier hit an RBI single that gave Tampa Bay a 5-1 advantage.

The Rays made it 6-1 in the fifth inning when Blue Jays reliever Tim Mayza threw a wild pitch that allowed Pham to score from third base.

In the seventh, Ji-Man Choi hit a solo homer to give Tampa Bay a 7-1 lead.
