Bumgarner puts Giants one win from title

San Francisco starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner held the Rangers to just three hits over eight innings in leading his Giants to a 4-0, Game 4 win over Texas Sunday night in Arlington, Texas. The win gave the Giants a 3-1 advantage in the best-of-seven World Series, moving San Francisco just one win away from their first world championship since moving to the city in 1958. 

 

Bumgarner, at 21 years, 92 days, became the fourth youngest pitcher ever to start and win a World Series game. Three 20-year-olds have won in the Fall Classic: Bullet Joe Bush claimed a victory for the Philadelphia A's in 1913, Jim Palmer won for the Orioles in 1966 and Fernando Valenzuela notched a win in 1981. The Rangers never advanced a runner as far as second base.

 

The Giants received all the offense they needed when Aubrey Huff slammed a two-run homer off a mislocated cutter from Rangers starter Tommy Hunter. San Francisco later added...

Arrington on Moss: 'It was put up or shut up'

FOXBORO -- Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington played the game of his career on Sunday as he drew Randy Moss in coverage and played physical with the star receiver's return to Foxboro in a 28-18 Patriots win at Gillette Stadium.

 

"It was Randy Moss. It was either put up or shut up so I think I did a decent enough job today with him so hopefully I can continue to build," said Arrington, who added the plan was to be very physical with Moss right off the line of scrimmage. "As much as I could, every time the ball was snapped, I tried to be the aggressor. He will lull you to sleep. That was the biggest thing I didn't want to happen and end up on SportsCenter for the wrong reason."

 

Arrington, a second-year corner, was so good in coverage that the Vikings and Brett Favre were only able to target Moss twice. Moss finished with one catch for eight yards.

Favre: 'What in the world am I doing?'

FOXBORO -- A reflective Brett Favre spoke for nearly 10 minutes following Sunday's 28-18 loss to the Patriots at Gillette Stadium. He suffered eight stitches under his chin after taking a hit from Myron Pryor midway through the fourth quarter. He was knocked out of the game, carted off the field and did not return. He said following the game he has no regrets playing with a broken bone in his left foot, elbow tendinitis and now a bruised jaw. 

 

"Talk to me in 10 years, we may think differently, but then again, we may not," said Favre, who finished 22-of-32 for 259 yards and an interception. "Weighing that, from the physical side of it, I really can't complain. I probably should. I played with a broken foot and got eight stitches in my chin and you all know I've been battling[elbow] tendinitis. I thought I threw the ball as well as I have thrown it in quite a while. We ran a couple of bootlegs.

Jackson thought he was going to start

FOXBORO -- Speaking after the Patriots' 28-18 win over the Vikings Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium, Minnesota backup quarterback Tavaris Jackson admitted that he had the feeling he was going to get the start with Brett Favre still nursing a left ankle injury.

 

"I had my feeling, but I'm not always right. I think I am," said Jackson, who later confirmed his "feeling" was that he would be starting. "It was a situation where it could go either way and the guy that he is, there aren't too many guys coming out of  that boot and playing on Sunday with the same injury that Brett has."

 

Jackson -- who did get a chance to play when Favre was driven from the game with a 10-stitch laceration on his chin in the fourth quarter -- said he didn't find out Favre was going to start until Sunday. Favre finished his outing going 22-of-32 for 259 yards, throwing one interception. Jackson came on to...

Moss: 'I miss the hell out of them'

FOXBORO - Vikings wide receiver Randy Moss spoke to the media following the 28-18 Patriots win at Gillette Stadium on Sunday. Moss, who refused to answer any questions from reporters, talked about his feelings for his former organization.

 

"It was hard for me to come here and play," said Moss, who finished with just one catch for eight yards. "It was an up-and-down roller coaster for me all week. Then to be able to come and see these guys, running plays, I know what they're doing, success they had on the field with the running game. I kind of know what type of feeling is in their locker room and I want to be able to tell those guys that I miss the hell out of them, every last helmet in that locker room ... Coach Belichick gave me an opportunity to part of something special and I really take that to heart and I salute Coach Belichick and the Patriots for the success they had before me, during me and after me. I'm actually...
