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,

Yankees pile up runs to guarantee another losing year for Jays

Aaron Judge’s wrist got a big hand.

The reigning AL Rookie of the Year returned to right field for the first time since his right wrist was broken seven weeks ago, and the crowd of 40,138 at Yankee Stadium greeted him with a pair of standing ovations before the eighth inning of New York’s 11-0 romp over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night.

“Pretty crazy,” Judge said.

Masahiro Tanaka (12-5), bidding to start a likely wild-card game against Oakland, extended his scoreless streak to 20 innings and won his third straight start.

Toronto lost its fourth straight game and at 65-82 ensured consecutive losing seasons for first time since 2012-13.

“We’re in a rebuild mode now, so you’re going to take your lumps,” manager John Gibbons said.

Watch as the Yankees blank Toronto:

Estrada lasted just 2 2/3rd innings, giving up 8 earned runs as the New York Yankees hammered the Toronto Blue Jays 11-0. 1:37

Judge, who did not have a chance in his two innings, is limited to defence and baserunning for now. Manager Aaron Boone said Judge could return as a fulltime player during this final homestand, which ends Sept. 23.

‘I was nervous out there’

“I was nervous out there just standing in the outfield,” Judge said. “Just getting those jitters out of the way now, it’s good. So when I get that first at-bat, it’ll be like I never left.”

Judge had not played since July 26, when he was hit by a pitch from Kansas City’s Jakob Junis. Judge said the wrist still has pain and won’t heal fully until the off-season.

Judge high-fived a member of the grounds crew as fans applauded when he ran onto the field and another a minute later when he was introduced by public address announcer Paul Olden. Judge ran to the base of the right-field wall after his warmup tosses — just in front of the Judge’s Chambers. He handed the ball to a woman in the first row who passed it to a widely smiling girl next to her.

“You could feel the buzz there,” Boone said.

Before the ninth, Judge tossed his warmup ball into the upper deck. New York originally projected he would sidelined by the injury for three weeks, but pain lingered and he missed 45 games.

Simulated game 

The tall, gregarious sophomore likely will have a simulated game next week before he bats in a real one.

“In the dugout, just having him there and his presence being there, is felt throughout the whole team,” Andrew McCutchen said,

McCutchen hit his third home run since the Yankees acquired him from San Francisco on Aug. 31 for outfield depth, a move that allowed Giancarlo Stanton to be mostly a designated hitter. McCutchen doubled leading off the first and scored New York’s first run and also singled and walked twice. To make room for Judge, McCutchen shifted to left for the first time since 2009 at Triple-A.

“I finally got to watch him and Stanton take batting practice, and I saw some pretty impressive stuff,” McCutchen said. “I know the people who have been here all year, to them it’s probably normal. It’s not normal.”

New York improved to 13-4 against Toronto this season and remained 1 1/2 games ahead of the Athletics for home field in the wild-card game on Oct. 3. Dominating with a sharp splitter, Tanaka struck out eight in six innings and allowed four hits. Luis Severino and J.A. Happ also are possible starters against the A’a.

“How they’re pitching in the final two weeks certainly matters,” Boone said. “We also take into account who we’re playing, where we’re playing.”

Luke Voit hit a two-run double that capped a five-run first inning against Marco Estrada (7-12), who tied a career worst by allowing eight runs and lasted just 2 2/3 innings. Didi Gregorius added his 24th homer, one shy of his career high.
