Morning Sports Report – 3/4/14

The Columbus Blue Jackets edged the Toronto Maple Leafs last night, 2-1. The Jackets jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second behind a pair of goals from Dalton Prout and Artem Anisimov. Toronto cut the lead to one with four minutes left, but Sergei Bobrovsky was stellar and held off a late comeback. Columbus will now host Dallas tonight at 7.

Elsewhere in the NHL, the LA Kings bested Montreal, 2-1. Minnesota edged Calgary, 3-2 and Dallas topped Buffalo, 3-2.

The Trimble Tomcats hit the hardwood tonight as they battle top-seeded Peebles in a district semifinal at the Convo. The Tomcats are coming off of an impressive win over Waterford and Micah Couch as well as Jacob Koons want to shock the Indians. The Tomcats and Peebles do battle tonight in the tournament on 970 WATH with pre game at 6 and the tip at 6:15.

The Athens Lady Bulldogs road to the state final four begins tonight as they battle the top-ranked team in the state, Millersburg West Holmes at Zanesville High School. The Lady Dogs won their second straight district title recently, but the Knights of West Holmes are a perennial state power and now stand in the way. Athens and West Holmes in the regional semifinals can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 7:45 and the tip at 8.

In NBA action last night, Sacramento bested New Orleans, 96-89. The LA Lakers clipped Portland, 107-106. Minnesota outlasted Denver, 132-128. Milwaukee dominated Utah, 114-88. Miami handled Charlotte, 124-107 behind LeBron James’ 61 points. Detroit toppled New York, 96-85. Brooklyn blew past Chicago, 96-80 and Memphis defeated Washington, 110-104.

The Cincinnati Reds fell to the Seattle Mariners yesterday in spring training action, 6-5. Billy Hamilton went 1-for-2 with two runs scored for the Reds who blew a 5-1 lead. Cincinnati takes on the Kansas City Royals today at 3.

The Cleveland Indians edged the Texas Rangers, 6-5 in spring training play yesterday. Jeff Francouer went 2-for-3 with two RBIs in the game. The Indians will battle the Chicago White Sox today at 3.

The Cleveland Browns placed a transitional tag on pro bowl center Alex Mack yesterday. This means that they can match any offer that any other team makes. Mack would now make $10 million in 2014. By using this tag, Cleveland would not receive any draft pick compensation if he decides to sign elsewhere. The move also means that pro bowl safety TJ Ward has become a free agent.
