Madison Bumgarner pitched five innings of near-perfect relief and the San Francisco Giants held off the Kansas City Royals 3-2 Wednesday night in Game 7 of the World Series for their third championship in five seasons. With both starters chased early, it became a matchup of bullpens. And no one stood taller than the 6-foot-5 Bumgarner, who added to his postseason legacy with a third victory this Series. The Giants ended a Series streak that had seen home teams win the last nine Game 7s. San Francisco also earned titles in 2012 and 2010. [more...]

Andy Dalton made up for his two second-half turnovers by scoring on a 1-yard sneak with 57 seconds left on Sunday, rallying the Cincinnati Bengals to a 27-24 victory over the Baltimore Ravens that tightened the AFC North race. The Bengals (4-2-1) wasted an 11-point lead as Dalton’s fumble and interception helped the Ravens pull ahead 24-20 with 3:59 left. That’s when Dalton pulled it out against the NFL’s stingiest defense. He threw a 53-yard pass to Mohamed Sanu on third-and-10 and took it the final yard on fourth down, completing a 10-play, 80-yard drive. With the victory the Bengals took over first place in the AFC North division with a 4-2-1 record. [more...]
