The Columbus Blue Jackets are off to just their second 2-0 start in franchise history after a 5-2 victory over the New York Rangers Saturday night. It was an electric home opener in front of 18,922 at Nationwide Arena as the newly formed Johansen line, with Nick Foligno on his left and Cam Atkinson on his right, combined for three goals and three assists. Artem Anisimov and rookie Marko Dano also scored for the Blue Jackets, and goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky had 24 saves. The Jackets play host to the Dallas Stars tonight and have never started a season 3-0. The game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame scheduled for 6:45 and the drop of the puck at 7:00. [more...]

Mike Nugent missed a 36-yard field goal attempt on the final play of overtime Sunday, leaving the Cincinnati Bengals and Carolina Panthers in a 37-37 tie — the NFL’s first this season. Nugent made a 42-yard field goal that put Cincinnati up after the opening drive of overtime. Carolina tied it on Graham Gano’s 36-yarder with 2:19 left. Andy Dalton was nearly perfect in overtime, going 8 for 9 for 87 yards with one throwaway. He led the Bengals into range to win it, but Nugent sliced his kick wide right. Brian Hoyer passed for 217 yards, leading the Browns to a 31-10 rout over Ben Roethlisberger and the rival Pittsburgh Steelers. Hoyer threw a 51-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Cameron and improved to 6-2 as Cleveland’s starter as the surprising Browns beat the Steelers for just the third time in 23 games. [more...]

Cam Atkinson’s third-period power-play goal broke a late tie and sparked the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 3-1, season-opening win over the Buffalo Sabres last night. Artem Anisimov and Jack Skille also scored for the Blue Jackets. Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky had 21 saves. Atkinson skated the puck out of the corner and into an opening in the slot, then fired a wrister that ticked off the glove of Sabres goaltender Jhonas Enroth and into the net for a 2-1 Jackets lead. Anisimov then scored with 2:26 remaining. The Blue Jackets improved to 5-6-2 all-time in season openers. They will host the New York Rangers on Saturday in the home opener in Nationwide Arena.

The latest associated press Ohio high school football poll was released on Tuesday. After arguably its biggest regular season win in program history, Athens moved up to No. 2 in the state in division III. The Bulldogs 59-42 victory over then 9th ranked Steubenville earned them four first place votes and moved Athens up one spot behind top ranked Hubbard. The Trimble Tomcats remained 2nd in the state in DVII after their impressive 42-0 shutout victory over Wahama. Other teams of interest from around the area: Tri-Valley was 6th and Jackson moved up to 10th, both in DIII. Lucasville Valley was 9th in DVI and Caldwell was 4th in DVII. [more...]

Tom Brady rebounded from the second worst loss of his career by throwing for two touchdowns and becoming the sixth quarterback to pass for 50,000 yards as the New England Patriots routed the NFL’s last unbeaten team with a 43-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday night. [more...]

The Ohio State Buckeyes moved up a few spots in the Coaches Poll after their impressive win over in-state foe Cincinnati. Ohio State found themselves rising in the ranks of the college football world on Sunday morning, as the Buckeyes rose to No. 18 in the Amway Coaches Poll Top 25. The Buckeyes were ranked 20th last week, but clearly impressed voters enough to move up slightly in the rankings after a record setting Saturday. With J.T. Barrett and the offensive line looking much improved, and Ezekiel Elliott playing the best game of his young career up to this point, voters have to be liking what the Buckeyes have produced in the past three weeks. With the Big Ten slate coming up this week against Maryland, Ohio State will have plenty on the line as they try and get back into the hunt for the College Football Playoff. [more...]

The Pirates couldn’t stop Cincinnati’s Johnny Cueto, who drove in the go-ahead run and got his 20th victory yesterday, during a 4-1 win that gave the NL Central title to the St. Louis Cardinals and forced Pittsburgh to settle for a wild card. Pittsburgh needed to beat the Reds and have the Cardinals lose later in the day at Arizona to pull even for first place and set up a one-game tiebreaker Monday. Instead, Cueto settled the division race with eight impressive innings. Cincinnati ends its season 10 games under .500 with a (76-86) record. [more...]

Kyle Lohse made the most of another wasteful day for Milwaukee’s offense, throwing a two-hitter and driving in a run on Wednesday night for a 5-0 victory that forestalled elimination from the playoffs a bit longer.The Brewers led the NL Central for 150 days, but fell apart at the end. Since June 28th, they’ve gone 30-45. The offense has unraveled, scoring two or fewer runs in each of the previous six games. Lohse gave up a pair of singles by Jack Hannahan in his second shutout of the season. Lohse was 2-1 in five starts against the Reds this season with a 2.13 ERA. Cincinnati and Milwaukee will conclude their 3-game series this afternoon inside Great American Ballpark. Today’s game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame at 12:05 and the first pitch at 12:35. [more...]

Johnny Cueto kept his hopes of a 20-win season alive, and Todd Frazier and Devin Mesoraco hit back-to-back homers last night, sending the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. Cueto gave up a Carlos Gomez homer over eight innings. He’ll pitch Cincinnati’s final game on Sunday against Pittsburgh at Great American Ball Park. The Reds haven’t had a 20-game winner since left-hander Danny Jackson in 1988. The last Reds right-hander to win 20 games was Sammy Ellis in 1965. Milwaukee led the NL Central for 150 days, but fell apart at the end. Up by 6 ½ games on June 28, the Brewers have gone 29-45 and fallen far behind Pittsburgh and San Francisco in the wild card race. The Reds will look to make it three-in-row tonight when they send Daniel Corcino to the mound. Tonight’s game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame at 6:40 and the first pitch at 7:10.

Andy Dalton caught a touchdown pass — the first Bengals quarterback to pull off that feat — as Cincinnati stayed undefeated on Sunday, beating Tennessee 33-7. The Bengals head into their bye week with their best start in eight years. A few hours before kickoff, the Titans learned that kicker Rob Bironas had died overnight in a one-car crash in Nashville. He’d been released in March after his ninth season with Tennessee. The Titans committed a safety for holding in the end zone on a punt, missed two field goal attempts, snapped the ball before Jake Locker was ready in shotgun formation, and whiffed on the game’s defining play. Cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson let Dalton catch Mohamed Sanu’s pass and go 18 yards for the score. [more...]
