Angels rally in 10th for 4-3 win over Oakland (Yahoo Sports) - The Angels and Athletics realize their paths to the World Series are likely to cross repeatedly this fall. Both AL West powers are prepared to grind out wins similar to the one Howie Kendrick delivered in their series opener. Kendrick drove in Albert Pujols with a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning, and Los Angeles opened a two-game lead atop the major league standings with a 4-3 victory Thursday night over Oakland, which finished the game under protest over a ninth-inning obstruction call. Josh Hamilton had a 10th-inning single as the Angels (80-53) edged Oakland (78-55) to begin a four-game series between the California clubs with the majors' two best records.

No. 18 Ole Miss pulls away from Boise State 35-13 (Yahoo Sports) - Bo Wallace threw four touchdowns passes in a sloppy season opener, and No. 18 Mississippi pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat Boise State 35-13 on Thursday night. Shaking off Wallace's three first-half interceptions, the Rebels (1-0) got the victory before a sparse crowd in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game. Ole Miss led only 7-6 entering the fourth quarter before finishing off Boise State (0-1) when Wallace threw for TDs on three consecutive throws, ruining the debut of new Broncos coach Bryan Harsin. Also in the final period, Wallace went to Laquon Treadwell for a 14-yard TD and hooked up with Quincy Adeboyejo on a 31-yard scoring play. Bills WR Watkins hurt in 23-0 loss to Lions (Yahoo Sports) - The Buffalo Bills lost more than their preseason finale Thursday night, when rookie receiver Sammy Watkins did not return after aggravating a rib injury. The Detroit Lions, on the other hand, have several big decisions to make before establishing their 53-player regular-season roster following a 23-0 win over the Bills. With time running out in the first half and perhaps their tenure in Detroit, third-string quarterback Kellen Moore and backup receiver Corey Fuller made one last case to show they deserve to make the final cut before Saturday. Moore found time in the pocket to hit Fuller on a perfectly placed 25-yard touchdown pass over the middle with 9 seconds left in the second quarter to put the Lions ahead 17-0.

Hill's performance in his first career start proved there is plenty of life in the Aggies' offense without Manziel, a Heisman Trophy winner and first-round selection in the NFL draft. Hill was steady and confident in the pocket, leading Texas A&M (1-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) to a 31-14 halftime lead and finishing up with the most passing yards allowed in Steve Spurrier's 10 seasons with the Gamecocks (0-1, 0-1).

Stewart returning to competition after fatal crash (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: August 28, 2014, 8:58 pm]
Tony Stewart will return to Sprint Cup competition Sunday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway, ending a three-race hiatus taken after he struck and killed a fellow driver during a dirt-track race. The three-time NASCAR champion has not raced since his car hit Kevin Ward Jr. at an Aug. 9 sprint car event in upstate New York. Stewart pulled out of the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen the next morning, then skipped the races at Michigan and Bristol Motor Speedway. Stewart-Haas Racing executive vice president Brett Frood had said the team was putting no timetable on his return to the No. 14 Chevrolet and the emphasis was on giving Stewart time needed to get him ''in a better place than he is.'' Stewart's only comment since Ward's death was a statement the day after the crash in which he said ''there aren't words to describe the sadness I feel about the accident that took the life of Kevin Ward Jr.'' Ward had climbed from his car after it had spun while racing for position with Stewart.

Georgia native Chase Elliott eyes Atlanta win (NASCAR.com) [Yahoo! Sports: August 28, 2014, 8:29 pm]
Chase Elliott's young racing career has taken him across the country from the beaches of Daytona to the deserts of Phoenix and even over the border to Canada where he announced his presence to the NASCAR world as the then youngest victor of a national series event. Ironically, the 18-year-old wunderkind has never competed at Atlanta Motor Speedway, a track located 80 miles south of his hometown of Dawsonville, Georgia. "It's always exciting to race around home, and anytime you can do that it's definitely one of the places you want to shine," Elliott said.

Radio spat, slump come at bad time for Kyle Busch (NASCAR.com) [Yahoo! Sports: August 28, 2014, 5:36 pm]
Crew chief Dave Rogers said all the right things in the aftermath of Saturday night's spat with driver Kyle Busch, brushing off the incident at Bristol Motor Speedway as a result of a miscommunication between driver and crew chief. Rogers, for the record, is still listed as Busch's crew chief as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series prepares to head to Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend, so it would seem safe to assume that no major personnel changes have taken place. With only two races remaining before the start of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, a strained relationship between crew chief and driver doesn't make for a winning combination.

Yet Patrick remains enthusiastic and optimistic -- partly because her Stewart-Haas Racing team has proven to be among the best in the garage and partly because she is absolutely certain her stock car education has greatly advanced.

NASCAR balances old, new in 2015 schedules (NASCAR.com) [Yahoo! Sports: August 27, 2014, 5:15 pm]
Long before "Save the Dates" were vogue and news came via Twitter "scoops," the release of NASCAR's three national schedules got less TV time than today's Air Titan track dryers get during a rain delay. With NASCAR's explosive venue expansion that began in the mid-to-late 1990s, the schedule grew and diversified. So it is a bit ironic that Tuesday's much-anticipated nationally televised announcement of all three NASCAR national series 2015 schedules was highlighted by a well-received shift back to that tradition -- the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series' Southern 500 returning to Labor Day weekend at historic Darlington Raceway. Bits and pieces of the schedule leaked out and tantalized in the past few weeks, but it was still a massive undertaking to be able to reveal all three national slates at once.

Lewandowski Breaks Drought, Wins Atlanta (NASCAR.com) [Yahoo! Sports: August 27, 2014, 2:30 pm]
Tom Lewandowski played the fuel mileage game perfectly at Atlanta Motor Speedway and held-off a charging Michael Conti, finally breaking a three-year winless drought in the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series Powered by iRacing. Lewandowski did not have the fastest car, but the caution-free race let him play the strategy game while Conti, Ray Alfalla and other contenders ran dry and needed an extra pit stop to go the distance. Upon exiting Conti found himself just over 16 seconds back of Lewandowski’s Ford Fusion, but immediately got up on the wheel and started closing the gap, taking advantage of the leader being held-up by lapped traffic. As the laps ticked down it became apparent that Conti was going to have a shot at the win regardless if Lewandowski had enough fuel.

Gordon comments on 2015 schedule changes (NASCAR.com) [Yahoo! Sports: August 26, 2014, 9:42 pm]
NASCAR unveiled next year's Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series schedules Tuesday at 5 p.m. Gordon and teammates Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kasey Kahne were wrapping up the first day of a two-day test at Martinsville when the announcement was made. Headlining the moves for the Sprint Cup Series are changes for events at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway and Darlington Raceway. Atlanta's Sprint Cup race had been held on the Labor Day weekend since 2010. Bristol's spring race will be run in April instead of March while Darlington, which hosted the annual Southern 500 on Labor Day weekend from 1950 through 2003 before moving to a May date, moves back to the first weekend in September.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Darlington Raceway will return to its traditional Labor Day weekend date next season in one of the few significant changes to NASCAR's 2015 Sprint Cup Series schedule.
