Mashup: Trio of Bengals arrested in week

The NFL appears ready to end its work stoppage, and the Bengals apparently are getting back into off-field form by running into trouble with the law. On Thursday, Bengals free agent safety Marvin White was arrested after arguing with management at his son's child-care facility in Louisiana. On Sunday, running back Cedric Benson was jailed in Texas and charged with repeatedly punching a man who had been living in his house.

The arrests come days after cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was jailed for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after an incident at a nightclub in Cincinnati. Jones was scheduled to return to court Monday.

Pedroia leads Sox past Rays in classic

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Dustin Pedroia lined an opposite-field single to right field with two outs in the 16th inning, scoring Josh Reddick and giving the Red Sox a 1-0 win over the Rays early Monday morning at Tropicana Field. The hit, which came off Rays reliever Adam Russell (the hosts' ninth pitcher of the contest) ended a game that set the record for longest by time (5 hours, 44 minutes) and innings in Tampa Bay history.

Six Red Sox pitchers combined for the shutout, with Alfredo Aceves (3 scoreless innings) and Jonathan Papelbon (21st save) finishing it off for the Sox. Pedroia went 3-for-7 while the entire Tampa Bay team ended up with three hits in 50 at-bats.

Earlier, Josh Beckett turned in another dominant performance against the Rays at Tropicana Field, throwing his second straight one-hit outing against Tampa Bay in its home park. This time Beckett needed 106 pitches (71 strikes) to complete eight innings, striking out six, not walking a...

Meyer: Cunningham key to Pats' pass rush

For all the concern about the Patriots not landing a pass rusher in the 2011 draft, former University of Florida coach Urban Meyer says that hope could arrive this season in the form of second-year linebacker Jermaine Cunningham.

Cunningham, who was taken by New England in the second round of the 2010 draft out of Florida, just finished his rookie year with the Patriots when he played in 15 games, starting 11. The 6-foot-3, 266-pounder finished the season with 34 tackles, one sack and two forced fumbles. (According to the analytical web site Pro Football Focus, Cunningham was on the field for 577 of New England’s 1,108 defensive plays in 2010.)

Meyer always believed Cunningham was the type of player who could develop into a legitimate pass rusher.

“Obviously, I did,” Meyer said, “but Bill Belichick really did.”

According to Meyer,...

Lester slated to start week from Tuesday

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Red Sox manager Terry Francona said before his team's game with the Rays Sunday night that Jon Lester, who is rehabbing from an injured left lat muscle, is slated to return to the starting rotation July 26 when the Sox play the Royals at Fenway Park.

"He'll throw a side tomorrow. He'll come back Wednesday and throw a pretty significant side, and then Friday or Saturday he'll throw a smaller side. Then he'll pitch [a week from Tuesday]," Francona said.

"He wanted to pitch Friday, so I think that's good news for us that he must feel good. But weaned to give him a chance where he can go out and not be stuck on 60 pitches in his first comeback."

Francona noted that the Red Sox were most likely fortunate that they caught the injury when the did -- taking Lester out of his July 5 start after four innings despite the lefty not having given up a hit.

"I think we caught it quick enough where he...

Japan bests USA in penalty kicks
By: DJ Bean

The United States blew two leads, the second of which was in extra time Sunday, as Japan won the World Cup on penalty kicks. The score was 2-2 at the end of extra time.

Abby Wambach scored the only goal on penalty kicks for the Americans, as they failed to score on their first three kicks. Japan had three goals on penalty kicks, with the game-winner coming from Saki Kumagai in the fourth round.

Wambach's goal, which came on a header in extra time off a pass from 22-year-old Alex Morgan, was her 13th career World Cup goal, making her the all-time leader among Americans. Homare Sawa evened the score in the 117th minute by redirecting a corner kick.

Morgan became just the second substitute in World Cup history to score in a final game, as she gave the USA its first lead with a second-half goal. Japan tied it at a goal apiece when Aya Miyama capitalized on a USA turnover and beat goalie Hope Solo.
