John Tavares scores twice as Leafs down Senators in pre-season action

LUCAN, Ont. — John Tavares talked after Tuesday’s morning skate about how he always gets butterflies before a game, no matter the time of year or the venue. Those jitters were probably gone fairly early into the star centre’s pre-season debut with his new team. Tavares buried his first two goals with the Maple Leafs and added an assist as Toronto defeated the Ottawa Senators 4-1 in the opener of the NHL exhibition schedule for both clubs. Mitch Marner chipped in with a goal and two assists for the Leafs, while Andreas Borgman also scored. Ryan Dzingel replied for the Senators, who held a 35-30 edge in shots. The game… Read More

Blue Jays send Orioles to team-record 108th loss

The 1988 Orioles, who opened the season 0-21, held the previous team record for losses with a 54-107 finish.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. followed with a two-RBI single off reliever Paul… Read More

Neil Walker’s three-run shot in the seventh inning pushed the Yankees, 3-2, over the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night. NEW YORK — The visiting clubhouse won’t smell like a Bleecker Street dive bar. For one more day, anyway. The Yankees kept the American League East title from the Red Sox with a 3-2 win at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday. Neil Walker’s three-run shot in the seventh inning turned a 1-0 deficit into a cushion for the Yankees’ bullpen. They didn’t get any help from star Aaron Judge, who started in right field for the first time since fracturing his right wrist in late July. He went hitless… Read More
