The right-hander struck out five in his fourth start of the season, six days after his 8-6 victory over the Diamondbacks at Phoenix.

It's not every day - or every year - an NFL franchise goes on the market as the Bills are, following owner Ralph Wilson's death last month. Toronto and Los Angeles are potential landing spots because owners would have an opportunity to make more money than in Buffalo, the NFL's second-smallest market.

Colts' Wayne focused on proving doubters wrong (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: April 18, 2014, 7:40 pm]
Reggie Wayne spent the offseason working out. The perennial Pro Bowler rehabbed his injured right knee two or three times a day and made semi-regular calls to check in on teammates all for one singular goal: To prove wrong anyone who doubts he can return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament at his age, be the same player and lead the Colts to a Super Bowl. ''You guys say I can't do it,'' Wayne said Friday night at a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society in Indianapolis. And he almost single-handedly willed the Colts to victory when coach Chuck Pagano missed his first game after being diagnosed with leukemia.

It also might have violated NFL rules because, according to Saban, Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase also was in attendance. The league doesn't allow players and their coaches to meet before the start of offseason workouts, which for the Broncos begin Monday. On-field instruction won't start until mid-May. The Associated Press left messages with the team and the NFL on Friday seeking comment.

Teenager Nathan MacKinnon is growing up fast. The speedy 18-year-old delivered another stellar performance for the Colorado Avalanche, scoring his first NHL postseason goal and dishing out three assists in a 4-2 win over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night.

MacKinnon, Gabe Landeskog and Paul Stastny combined for all four goals and six assists Saturday.

Craig Kimbrel hardly ever needs help with the ninth inning. Jordan Walden nailed down the final out with the bases loaded after Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez pulled his star closer following a shaky performance in a 7-5 win over the New York Mets. Sidelined recently by shoulder discomfort, Kimbrel threw 24 pitches during his first outing in a week. The Braves didn't want him to go any longer, and Gonzalez thought the reliever was rusty.

The right-hander struck out five in his fourth start of the season, six days after his 8-6 victory over the Diamondbacks at Phoenix. Haren departed with an 8-4 lead and was replaced by Brian Wilson, who gave up a two-run double by Martin Prado before retiring Chris Owings on a grounder with runners at the corners to end the eighth.

Jimmy Walker gets gag gift from his friends back home (PGA) [Yahoo! Sports: April 19, 2014, 8:54 pm]
If you worry that winning three PGA Tour events this season, dominating the FedExCup points list and rising into the top 20 in the world ranking might have given Jimmy Walker the big head, then fret no more. Walker, who plays out of the Cordillera Golf Club near San Antonio, has a group of friends there who definitely aren't shy pointing out his on-course failings, rare though they have been this season. Walker was one of the favorites at his hometown Valero Texas Open a few weeks ago, but made a double bogey on the first hole of his second round thanks to a few too many shots on the green.
