Warnock had Palace talks last year - 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. Bellis is the buzz of the Big Apple - How has 15-year-old CiCi Bellis captured American hearts and minds with her run at the US Open? 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. Kenny Football: Hill surpasses Manziel's mark (Yahoo Sports) - Kenny Hill broke Johnny Manziel's single-game passing record with 511 yards and No. 21 Texas A&M beat No. 9 South Carolina 52-28 on Thursday night, ending the Gamecocks' 18-game home win streak. 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). Murray breezes into US Open last 32 - Andy Murray makes short work of German qualifier Matthias Bachinger as the Briton advances to the US Open third round. Williams overcomes 3 early double-faults to win (Yahoo Sports) - Good as she is, even Serena Williams can find it tough to deal with swirling wind, so much so that she double-faulted three times in her first service game Thursday at the U.S. Quickly putting behind a poor-serving start, and showing absolutely no other signs of the type of up-and-down play that has plagued her at Grand Slams this season, Williams dismissed 81st-ranked American Vania King 6-1, 6-0 in 56 minutes to reach the third round. For the moment, the 32-year-old Williams wants to stay focused on avoiding the sort of problems she had at the Australian Open (where she lost in the fourth round), French Open (second round) and Wimbledon (third round). So far this week, she's left the trouble to others, and Williams could wind up being the beneficiary. Record-setting Petit leads Giants past Rockies 4-1 (Yahoo Sports) - Yusmeiro Petit set a major league record when he retired his 46th batter in a row, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 4-1 on Thursday for their third straight win. Petit (4-3) got the first eight Colorado hitters, establishing the mark by striking out Charlie Culberson. He also surpassed Jim Barr's NL record of 41 in a row with the Giants in 1972. Charlie Blackmon followed with a single to drive in Colorado's only run. USC coach accepts some blame in Shaw situation (Yahoo Sports) - Southern California coach Steve Sarkisian believes he shares blame with the athletic department for publicizing cornerback Josh Shaw's fictitious story about injuring his ankles while saving his nephew from drowning. Sarkisian also said Thursday that the suspended Shaw could ''potentially'' return to the Trojans at some point this season, news that was welcomed by Shaw's attorney. ''Obviously there's some other things that need to take place,'' Sarkisian said Thursday after USC's practice. ''But in the meantime, he's got to take care of his health and take care of himself, and when the time is right to bring him back, we will.'' The first-year coach said Shaw still hasn't told the Trojans exactly how he sprained both of his ankles last weekend, extending this curious distraction into the weekend of Sarkisian's debut game.

Dominican, 34, beats kid half his age at US Open (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: August 29, 2014, 4:27 am]
Victor Estrella Burgos is 34, and Borna Coric is 17, making for the largest gap between male opponents in U.S. ''Age is just a number,'' said the 80th-ranked Estrella Burgos, the first player from the Dominican Republic to reach the ATP's top 100. I knew about his age, and that I was playing someone who has a bright future ahead of him, but I never thought that I have to beat him because he was younger than me or that he will just fail by just being younger.'' Two days after playing on Court 6 and earning his first victory in a Grand Slam match by defeating Igor Sisling of the Netherlands, Estrella Burgos returned to the same spot and heard the same sort of overwhelming support from the capacity crowd of 1,148. Joking about his euphoric countrymen, Estrella Burgos said: ''There were 1,000 Dominicans - and also 1,000 coaches.'' ''They were yelling me all the time, 'Just serve to the T' and 'Keep slicing,''' Estrella Burgos said.

Opens, it may have been the kind of stuff that was swept up and thrown away: Placards that identified players at news conferences. Now, all of it - the obscure and the obvious - is collected as bits of sports memorabilia and sold in a kiosk under the stands of Court 11 at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
