LOS ANGELES (AP) — San Francisco lefty Matt Moore lost his no-hit bid with two outs in the ninth inning on a soft, clean single by Corey Seager, and the Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0 Thursday night.

Giants center fielder Denard Span...

SEATTLE (AP) — Three plays were all it took for Dallas to get yet another injury scare surrounding Tony Romo.

The quarterback lasted just 90 seconds into the Cowboys' 27-17 preseason loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night before leaving with what appeared at first to be a potentially significant injury, but ended up being minor.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A quadriplegic man who admitted to trying to extort money from former Ohio State star and NFL player Christopher "Beanie" Wells has been sentenced to a year of house arrest after a judge concluded that imprisoning the defendant would be too costly for taxpayers.

Cleveland.com (http://bit.ly/2bDnIwH ) reports the judge on Wednesday told 29-year-old Patrick Griffin, of Akron, that he could still be sent to prison if he violates her terms. Griffin also...
