Los Angeles Angels' Gary Matthews Jr. celebrates after scoring on a single by Casey Kotchman as Minnesota Twins pitcher Pat Neshek looks away during the eighth inning of a baseball game in Anaheim, Calif., Saturday, Aug. 11, 2007.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia wasn’t too comfortable with the way the Minnesota Twins’ infield was guarding against a bunt by Maicer Izturis, so he called him over and told him to swing away. Izturis did just that, hitting his third home run in 11 at-bats to drive in the tying and go-ahead runs for Los Angeles in the eighth inning of a 4-3 victory Saturday night.

  • Carroll’s pinch-hit slam powers Rockies

    Jamey Carroll has struggled this year to find the groove he had in 2006. At least for one swing, he captured it again Saturday night. Carroll hit a pinch-hit grand slam to break open a tie game in the sixth and Brad Hawpe and Troy Tulowitzki each drove in three runs to lead the Colorado […]

  • Raiders top Cardinals in Kiffin’s debut

    The way last season went for the Oakland Raiders, they’ll take any sort of a win — even an exhibition one over the Arizona Cardinals. Andrew Walter threw a touchdown pass to Mike Williams and Hiram Eugene scored on a 36-yard interception return to lead Oakland to a 27-23 victory Saturday night in coach Lane […]

  • Schaub, Green have poor Texans debuts

    Matt Schaub’s first pass for the Houston Texans was for 2 yards. His second one was dropped. This revamped Texans offense sure looks a lot like the old one. Schaub, who replaced David Carr after backing up Michael Vick for three years in Atlanta, had an inauspicious debut going 3-for-5 for 25 yards. But the […]

  • Titans QB Young out, Redskins win 14-6

    Anyone curious to see how Vince Young has improved since he was last seen in the Pro Bowl must wait a week. While the Washington Redskins sure didn’t miss him, the Titans obviously did. Young sat on the sidelines, benched for violating a team rule. Without him, the Tennessee Titans lost their preseason opener on […]

  • Cabrera, Willingham lift Marlins by Mets

    Miguel Cabrera and Josh Willingham were two of the last Florida Marlins to leave the field Saturday night. They might have been looking for more Mets relievers to feast on. Cabrera hit a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning, Willingham had his first career grand slam and the Florida Marlins rallied for a 7-5 victory […]

  • Braun, Fielder HRs in 9th lift Brewers

    A second consecutive late-inning rally might be just what the Milwaukee Brewers need to shake their recent slump. Ryan Braun hit a three-run homer and Prince Fielder followed with a solo shot, both off Astros closer Brad Lidge, as the Brewers rallied in the ninth to defeat Houston 7-4 Saturday night.

  • Webb runs scoreless streak to 33 innings

    When Brandon Webb takes the mound for Arizona lately, one run for the Diamondbacks is plenty. The reigning NL Cy Young award winner pitched his second shutout in a row to extend his scoreless inning streak to a club-record 33 Saturday night and lead the Diamondbacks to their 17th victory in 20 games, 1-0 over […]

  • Backup QB Rodgers shines, Packers win

    Mike Tomlin won’t have much to remember from this one, and he could only give thanks it didn’t count. Brett Favre and Ben Roethlisberger also had forgettable showings on a scoreless night for the Green Bay and Pittsburgh starting offenses. Neither Roethlisberger nor Favre did much as the Packers’ and Steelers’ regulars were shut out […]

  • Panthers top Strahan-less Giants 24-21

    With or without Michael Strahan, the New York Giants defense has a lot of work to do after being exposed by the Carolina Panthers. Jake Delhomme and Steve Smith combined for an opening-drive touchdown pass and receiver Taye Biddle caught touchdown passes of 23 and 85 yards to lead the Panthers to a 24-21 victory […]

  • Donny Schatz repeats as Knoxville Nationals champion

    Donny Schatz promised the crowd at the Knoxville Raceway that he was more ready for Saturday night’s championship than anything else in his life. Then he went out and proved it. Schatz broke from the pack following a caution flag after the second lap and went on to repeat as champion of the world’s most […]
