Banta-Cain likely to rejoin Pats

The Patriots released outside linebacker Tully Banta-Cain Monday, who confirmed the move in an appearance with Sirius Satellite Radio’s “Movin’ The Chains” show. However, don’t expect Banta-Cain to be shopping around for a new job — he said the move was made with the understanding that he’d be brought back.

Angels rally, sneak past Yankees in 11

Angels catcher Jeff Mathis, often considered a defensive specialist, delivered a game-winning double in the bottom of the 11th inning to send his club past the Yankees in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series. The Halos now trail the Yankees, 2-1, in the best-of-seven ALCS.
 
The Yankees claimed a 3-0 on the strength of solo homers by Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez and Johnny Damon. But the Angels rallied with a pair of longballs, a solo shot by Torii Hunter in the bottom of the fifth and a two-run homer from Vlad Guerrero that tied the game in the sixth. The two teams traded runs, maintaining a 4-4 tie until the bottom of the 11th, when Howie Kendrick singled with two outs and then raced home when Mathis delivered his game-winning double to left-center.
