Penguins falter late, Jackets capitalize

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- It was all but over. Game Four. Pretty much the series, too. The Pittsburgh Penguins had dominated early and then gotten pushed around from there, but they'd pushed back hard enough and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury had stopped enough shots that they were all set to escape. The Penguins equipment truck was fired up and heading back east, anyway; the Penguins...

Royals' strengths are weaknesses in disheartening 5-3 loss to Tribe

Well, this is the type of game the Royals are supposed to win. They got a quality start from Jason Vargas (six innings, two earned runs), they got long balls from Sal Perez and Mike Moustakas, and they even got a clutch, two-out RBI hit from Moustakas again in the sixth inning. But generally what the Royals excel at -- defense and a strong bullpen -- betrayed them in a disheartening...

McNeal: Don't blame Oquendo for Cards' 3-2 loss to the Mets

Don't blame third-base coach Jose Oquendo for the Cardinals' 3-2 loss to the Mets Wednesday night. Yes, his decision to send home Matt Carpenter backfired on the Cardinals. If Carpenter had stayed at third instead of being thrown out at home, there would have been only one out when Matt Holliday lofted a long fly to right.
