Casey Kelly's Arizona season ends

With five innings in which he allowed four runs (three earned) for the Peoria Javelinas on Saturday, Red Sox top prospect Casey Kelly reached 16 innings in his Arizona Fall League season, reaching the targeted 15-20 innings that the Sox wanted him to throw in the AFL. And so, after four starts, Kelly's time with Peoria is now done.

 

The right-hander, who turned 21 on Oct. 4, had a 6.75 ERA while striking out 11 and walking four in the AFL. His final ERA was inflated by one terrible start, in which he permitted eight runs in two innings. Otherwise, he pitched well in three of his four starts. On Saturday, he topped out at 94 mph while showing a swing-and-miss curveball and changeup.

Thomas shuts out Sens, improves to 6-0
By: DJ Bean

Tim Thomas made 29 saves and picked up his second straight shutout (third of the season) as the Bruins blanked the Senators, 4-0, in Ottawa. He is now off to the best start by a Bruins goalie since Tiny Thompson 73 years ago.

 

David Krejci, Tyler Seguin, Jordan Caron, and Milan Lucic scored for the Bruin, who improved to 6-2-0 on the young season. The second and third lines saw shuffling during the first period, with Blake Wheeler and Michael Ryder swapping spots in the second and third lines, but the offense did not suffer as a result on a night in which the Senators were particularly sloppy.

 

The team remains undefeated on the road (4-0) and in games started by Thomas (6-0). In starting 6-0, Thomas became the first Bruins goalie since Tiny Thompson 73 years ago to do so. With the shutout on Saturday, Tim Thomas is already approaching his career-high for a season. The veteran...

Report: Favre expected to start vs. Patriots

ESPN is reporting that Vikings quarterback Brett Favre feels that his injuries have "healed significantly," and that he expects to start on Sunday against the Patriots. Favre suffered two ankle fractures last Sunday night against the Packers, and his NFL record of 291 consecutive starts appeared to be in jeopardy. But, the ESPN report suggests, Favre now expects to continue his ironman streak.

 

The Patriots, according to head coach Bill Belichick on Friday, were planning as if that would be the case.

 

"We’ll prepare for all the players. The ones that play, we’ll try to defend. The ones that don’t, we won’t. It’s fairly straight forward, really," Belichick said of reports that Favre's ability to play could be in jeopardy. "It’s...

Breakthru game: Harris, BC beat Clemson

CHESTNUT HILL -- Chase Rettig earned his first win as the starting quarterback and tailback Montel Harris had 178 yards of total offense, as Boston College snapped a five-game losing streak with a 16-10 victory over Clemson Saturday at Alumni Stadium. 

 

With Harris rushing 36 times for 142 yards on the day, Rettig passed only 16 times, completing nine. One of those completions was 36 yards to a wide-open Harris for second-quarter touchdown, giving BC its first lead at home since Kent State on Sept. 11. Rettig overcame another struggling effort early, throwing an interception to Rashard Hall, returned 52 yards for Clemson's only touchdown of the day.

 

Nate Freese hit all three of his field goal attempts - twice from 36 yards and once from 21 - in support of a staunch defensive effort. All-American candidate Luke Kuechly picked off a pass near midfield with 1:42 left in the fourth and then knocked down a "Hail Mary...
