Cobb, Rays roll 4-0 over Indians in AL wild card

Wednesday, 02 October 2013 22:50 Published in Sports

 

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Alex Cobb dodged trouble for nearly seven innings and the Tampa Bay Rays pitched their way to another must-have win on the road, beating the Cleveland Indians 4-0 on Wednesday night in the AL wild-card game.

Cobb, who missed a chunk of the regular season after he was hit in the head by a line drive, quieted a thundering Cleveland crowd and ended the Indians' unexpected season.

Delmon Young homered in the third inning off rookie Danny Salazar as the Rays, playing in their third city over four days, advanced to face the AL East champion Boston Red Sox in the division series starting Friday.

 

Cobb's comeback in August from his frightening injury helped stabilize the Rays, who have spent the past two weeks winning crucial games to make the postseason for the fourth time in six years.

In response to several postings on social media, St. Louis city police sent more than 20 officers to Roosevelt High School Tuesday to protect fans and players at a high school football game.  Fox2 News reports that the game between the Vashon and College Preparatory junior varsity teams was played at Roosevelt. The move comes after a 16-year-old was shot and killed after leaving a party attended by teens from Vashon and College Prep.  Another 16-year-old was taken into custody after the shooting.  Police were alerted to the possibility of violence after noticing several alarming posts on social media.  There were no incidents at the game, but police say they will continue to monitor the situation.

 

 

Rams re-sign LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar

Tuesday, 01 October 2013 23:17 Published in Sports

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Rams re-signed outside linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar, who was waived at the beginning of a four-game suspension to start the season.

Dunbar was the team's second-leading tackler last year and coach Jeff Fisher had said there might be a chance of re-signing him.

The Rams (1-3) began preparations Tuesday for Sunday's home game against the Jaguars after players had four days off following a loss to the 49ers.

Offensive tackle Max Starks was released to make room for Dunbar. The Rams also signed cornerback Darren Woodard to the practice squad and released fullback Eric Stevens.
