KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Alex Smith has earned plenty of detractors over the course of his career, getting labeled as a “game manager” and a quarterback who is unable to lead his team when the pressure is on. He quieted all those doubters once again Monday night. Smith threw for 293 yards with...
CARCAS, Venezuela (AP) — Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera has long been an idol to baseball-playing youths in his native Venezuela, and now the 11-time All Star is a hero off the field as well after bailing out a team of young players who had been kept from going to a regional...
NEW YORK (AP) — Twins star Joe Mauer remembers well all those October losses to the Yankees. So too, surely, do Minnesota’s fans. Around the rest of the Twins clubhouse, though, it may as well be ancient history. Back in the playoffs for the first time in seven years, Mauer and upstart...

(AP) — The top-ranked Crimson Tide and No. 2 Tigers asserted themselves again on Saturday, though in different ways. The Tide looked ferocious in crushing Mississippi 66-3, showing that 59-0 against Vanderbilt the week before was no fluke. National champion Clemson, meanwhile, convincingly beat...
