Conrad's crime: Errors cost Braves vs. Giants

Atlanta second baseman Brooks Conrad committed three errors that led to two Giants runs, including the go-ahead score with two outs in the top of the ninth, to hand San Francisco a 3-2 victory in Game 3 of the NL Division Series. The come-from-behind victory gave the Giants a 2-to-1 lead in the best-of-five series. 

 

The Braves were one out away from victory before the Giants rallied for two two-out runs. With Atlanta closer Billy Wagner sidelined for the rest of the postseason by an oblique injury he suffered in Game 2, San Francisco rallied against a trio of Braves relievers in the ninth. With Atlanta holding a 2-1 lead, rookie Craig Kimbrel allowed a walk and a two-out hit to Freddy Sanchez, leading Braves manager Bobby Cox to summon left-hander Mike Dunn to face Giants left-handed slugger Aubrey Huff.

 

Huff lined a hanging slider to right to tie the game. Then, reliever Pete Moylan came in to face Buster Posey....

Rays tame Texas to force Game 5

The Tampa Bay Rays rode a strong performance by rookie starter Wade Davis to shut down the Rangers, 5-2, and force a winner-take-all Game 5 on Tuesday back at the Tropicana Dome. The Rays had been down 2-0 in the best-of-five Division Series, losing both games in Tampa Bay, but they came storming back with consecutive road wins.

 

Haverhill native Carlos Pena, who did not hit a triple during the regular season, got the Rays on the board by scoring after hitting a three-bagger in the second inning. He later hit an RBI double and scored on B.J. Upton's double in the fourth. Evan Longoria later added a pair of insurance runs by blasting a two-run homer to left.

 

That proved more than enough for Davis and the Rays bullpen. Davis struck out seven and held the Rangers scoreless through the first five innings. Most significantly, he punched out Texas DH Vladimir Guerrero with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the...

Report: Brady, Moss were in altercation

Former NFL GM and current CBS pregame analyst Charley Casserly reported Sunday that Tom Brady and Randy Moss "had to be separated" in the locker room following an altercation a week before the wideout was dealt to the Minnesota Vikings.

 

"The week before Moss was traded, Tom Brady and Randy Moss went toe-to-toe and had to be separated," Casserly told Greg Gumbel. "One of Brady's problems with Moss was his behavior as a Patriot. One of the things overheard was Brady telling Moss, 'You've got to cut your beard.' And Moss counters, 'You've got to get your hair cut. You look like a girl.'"

 

Brady commented on Moss and the trade in an interview on "Patriots All Access" last week.

 

"Randy really knows how I feel about him,” Brady said. "I love him as a guy, as a person, as a player. He did a lot of great things for this team. At the same time, I think...

Thomas, Horton lead B's in shutout win
By: DJ Bean

PRAGUE -- The newcomers made most of the offensive noise, but it was an old face in Tim Thomas who was the story as the Bruins picked up their first win of the season, a 3-0 shutout over the Coyotes at the O2 Arena in Prague.

 

Thomas made 20 saves on the night and recorded both his first win of the season and his 18th career shutout. The Bruins defense appeared to take its 2010-11 form after a sloppy showing on Saturday. The team heads back to Boston with two points through two games and will have five days of rest before returning to the ice against the Devils on Saturday. 

 

Former third overall pick Nathan Horton picked up two more points in the game, including his third goal of the season. Rookie Tyler Seguin took a pass from Michael Ryder in the third period and converted it into a breakaway goal, the first of his NHL career.

Report: Sox owners may not land Liverpool

An Associated Press report suggests that the takeover of Liverpool by the ownership of the Boston Red Sox will not happen if the Premier League club is forced into bankruptcy protection. 

 

Should insolvency occur before a deal is struck with New England Sports Ventures, Liverpool would be hit with a nine-point penalty by the Premier League. That would drop Liverpool -- already off to its worst start in more than half a century -- down to English soccer's second tier and the NESV group would remove itself from any deal.

 

Liverpool could avoid bankruptcy if three of the club's board members are able next week to persuade a London court to force current owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett to sign off on the $476 million sale to NESV.

 

According to the AP report, Hicks and Gillett will claim in...
