Yankees power past Rangers, force Game 6

Faced with the specter of elimination, the Yankees managed to take advantage of their opportunities, while the Rangers failed to capitalize on theirs. Though the Rangers out-hit the Yankees, 13-9, New York ended up winning the more important battle of the scoreboard, claiming a 7-2 victory to send the series back to Texas for Game 6, with the Rangers leading the best-of-seven ALCS, 3-to-2.

 

Though Yankees ace CC Sabathia allowed 11 hits -- and at least one in each of his six innings against the Rangers -- and labored over 112 pitches in his six frames, he managed to limit the damage. He allowed just two runs, walking none and striking out seven. The Rangers were 1-for-9 with men in scoring position, and grounded into a pair of double plays.

 

Meanwhile, the Yankees managed to take advantage of most of the chances afforded them by starter C.J. Wilson and the Texas pitching staff. Three of the four batters walked by Wilson...

Rivers won't coach against Nets

Celtics coach Doc Rivers will not be on the bench when the Celtics play New Jersey Wednesday night in their preseason finale. Lawrence Frank will run the team in Rivers' absence. Rivers said that he will likely return Friday, although he did run a shootaround earlier Wednesday. "I can talk now, obviously," Rivers said. "They didn’t want me to scream or anything until Friday." 

 

Rivers decided to stay in the locker room because he didn't want to be a distraction. "If I’m not going to coach, I don’t want to be out there," Rivers said. "I’d rather for Lawrence for to do it."

 

Rivers underwent a biopsy Sunday morning to check on a cancerous lesion. He received a clean bill of health and was only away from the team for one day.

BC hoops 10th in ACC preseason poll

The Boston College men's basketball team was ranked 10th of 12 teams in the ACC preseason poll. That would represent another year of decline for BC, which finished eighth in 2009-10 with a 6-10 conference record (15-16 overall).

 

The results of the poll were announced at the ACC preseason media day, where first-year BC coach Steve Donahue jokingly asked for mercy from his colleagues.

 

"Be nice, right?" Donahue told reporters. "There's no hazing in this league for first-year guys. Let me get my feet under me."

 

Duke was picked first on 61 of 62 ballots, with Virginia Tech, North Carolina and NC State rounding out the top four finishers. For more, click here.

Goodell issues memo on illegal hits

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday notified all 32 teams that increased discipline -- including possible first-offense suspension-- will be imposed on players that author illegal hits to the head or neck of an opposing player.

 

Goodell sent a memo to each team, which was accompanied by a message and video to players and coaches. The head coach has been instructed to show the video and read the message to his team as quickly as possible. The video includes examples of both legal and illegal hits under current NFL rules.

 

"One of our most important priorities is protecting our players from needless injury," Goodell said. "In recent years, we have emphasized minimizing contact to the head and neck, especially where a defenseless player is involved. It is clear to me that further action is required to emphasize the importance of teaching safe and controlled techniques, and of playing within the rules....
