Wings clipped: Northwestern nips BC

CHESTNUT HILL -- Northwestern scored 21 straight points to erase a 10-3 deficit and rally past Boston College, 24-17, Saturday afternoon at Alumni Stadium. Sophomore running back Andre Williams had a pair of touchdown runs filling in for star tailback Montel Harris, who injured his knee in the team's summer scrimmage. 

Eagles All-American linebacker Luke Kuechly made a couple of big plays in the first half to help the Eagles get off to a good start. He made a big stop on a 4th-and-1 attempt by the Wildcats in Eagles territory and moments later intercepted a Kain Colter pass and returned it to the Wildcats 1-yard line. Following a false start penalty, Williams ran it in around the left side, putting BC aehad, 10-3.

But Northwestern responded with a 3-yard TD run by Colter with 38 seconds left in the second quarter to force a 10-10 tie at the half. Northwestern captialized on a pair of missed field goals by Nate Freese and a Chase Rettig...

Ortiz on 2011 season: 'I'm a beast'

Red Sox slugger David Ortiz is amidst one of the best seasons of his career. His .311 average is the second best of his career, and his .985 OPS also ranks alongside the marks he posted between 2003-07, when he finished in the top five in MVP voting every year.

The slugger suggests that his huge year at age 35 is a dramatic rebuttal to those who thought that his peak years had passed.

“I’m not going to stay 20 my whole life. If you’re good at what you do, it doesn’t matter how old you get. You’re good,” said Ortiz. “Most of the people who say that, if they played baseball, their career was average, so they struggled.

“Dude, I’m a strong human being. I’m a beast. I’m strong as hell. I know how to stay strong. That’s why, at my age, you see me doing what I’m still doing. Somebody told me, ‘Guys, when they get to your age, there’s no way they can hit 30...

Report: Pats to visit with center Gurode

According to the Boston Herald, the Patriots will visit with former Pro Bowl center Andre Gurode. The 32-year-old was released by the Cowboys on Aug. 29, presumably due to the fact he was slated to make $5.5 million in 2011, and was coming off an offseason in which he underwent knee surgery. It has also been reported that Gurode worked out for the Lions.

The Patriots' offensive line is though to be a bit thin, with right guard Dan Connolly recovering from a right leg injury, and reserve Ryan Wendell missing most of training camp.

Gurode is also known for being the player current Patriots defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth stomped on in 2006. (See video below.)

Hangover III: Rangers shell tired Sox

Red Sox starter Andrew Miller was shelled for six runs and five hits in just 1 1/3 innings while opposing lefty Derek Holland held the Red Sox at bay with seven shutout innings as the Rangers cruised to a 10-0 win Friday night at Fenway. The loss, combined with a 3-2 Yankees win over Toronto, drops the Red Sox into second in the AL East, a half-game behind New York.

One day after losing a four-hour, 21-minute marathon to the Yankees, the Red Sox looked like a team with little energy. The Rangers, however, showed the power that has propeled them to the top of the AL West. Ian Kinsler, David Murphy and Elvis Andrus all homered for Texas, which has won five-of-eight between the two teams that led their respective divisions entering the game. 

Miller gave up a three-run homer to Kinsler in a four-run Texas second inning as the Rangers jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first two innings. Relievers Michael Bowden and Matt Albers didn't fare much...
