Lee leads Texas past Rays into ALCS

Cliff Lee continued his postseason mastery, as the left-hander tossed a complete game to give the Rangers a 5-1 victory over the Rays in the winner-take-all Game 5 of the American League Division Series. The Rangers will advance to the ALCS against the Yankees, while Tampa Bay's season came to a crashing halt.

 

Lee mesmerized the Rays, barely breaking a sweat in tossing 120 pitches while going the distance. The southpaw -- acquired in July from the Mariners -- allowed six hits and struck out 11 while walking none. He set an ALDS record by striking out 20, and amazingly, he did not issue a single free pass in either of his two starts. In his playoff career, Lee improved to 6-0 with a 1.44 ERA and 54 strikeouts against just six free passes in 56 1/3 innings.

 

Lee allowed just one run in the third inning, when the Rays strung together three hits. Otherwise, he employed a precise and diverse arsenal -- fastball, cutter,...

Kraft: I think new CBA could happen soon

Patriots owner Robert Kraft told the Associated Press on Tuesday it's a realistic goal that the owners and players will reach a new collective bargaining agreement before the end of the 2010 season. Speaking at the NFL owners' meetings in Chicago, Kraft sounded an optimistic note about the state of the negotiations, saying "we're moving ahead" and he'd "like to see this get done before the season ends." Asked if that was a realistic objective, he added, "to me it is."

Shaq, Big Three sit out C's exhibition

Doc Rivers said Monday that he would rest Shaquille O'Neal Tuesday night when the Celtics play at Philadelphia in their fourth exhibition game. Rivers didn't stop there, electing to rest Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett as well as Delonte West (back spasms), according to a Tweet from the team's account.

 

O'Neal has also been dealing with a sore hip, but Allen, Pierce and Garnett were simply given the night off. Including Sunday's game with the Raptors, the Celtics are playing five games in seven days. The starting lineup for the Celtics tonight will be: Nate Robinson, Von Wafer, Marquis Daniels, Glen Davis and Jermaine O'Neal.
