Gonzalez, Rockies power past fading Giants
News Image(The Sports Xchange) - Carlos Gonzalez continued his home run barrage and Chris Rusin threw a complete game Thursday night as the Colorado Rockies pounded the fading San Francisco Giants 11-3. Gonzalez, who hit two homers and had seven RBIs on Wednesday, hit a two-run homer in the Rockies' four-run first and belted another two-run shot in the four-run third as the Rockies strafed starter Ryan Vogelsong. "I just stunk," said Vogelsong (9-11) who left after the first three batters reached base in the fourth and allowed a career-high tying 11 hits and eight runs.

Brewers again sweep Pirates
News Image(The Sports Xchange) - The Milwaukee Brewers finished off a three-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates - their second of the season - with a 5-3 victory Thursday night at Miller Park, which has been nothing short of a house of horrors for the Pirates since it opened in 2001. Pittsburgh is 84-41 at the stadium but, after Thursday, is just 17-61 since the 2007 season. This year alone, the Pirates dropped seven of nine meetings there, exactly the same number that separates them from the Cardinals in the standings.

NFL quarterback Brady's four-game ban quashed, Goodell to appeal
News ImageA US judge's decision to strike down New England Patriots Tom Brady's four-game "Deflate-gate" suspension means the superstar quarterback can play in the National Football League's season opener next Thursday. The ruling by US District Judge Richard Berman not only paves the way for Brady to take the field against the Pittsburgh Steelers but it is also a public relations embarrassment for commissioner Roger Goodell and calls into question his role as the league's ultimate authority. "Brady's four-game suspension is vacated, effective immediately," Berman ruled after failing in his effort to induce the warring sides to reach a settlement.

Marlins retain Jennings as manager, future uncertain
News Image(Reuters) - The Miami Marlins decided to retain Dan Jennings as manager on Thursday, though his long-term future with the team remains uncertain. The Marlins met with Jennings early in the day to discuss his role, as reported by Major League Baseball, amid reports that he would be fired. The 54-year-old rookie manager represents an experiment for Major League baseball as he moved from the general manager's office to the dugout in May, replacing the fired Mike Redmond despite lacking professional coaching experience.

'Deflategate' unlikely to harm NFL brand, experts say
The National Football League has managed to flourish through a number of highly-publicized fiascoes in recent years and sports experts expect more of the same despite a months-long battle with its most popular player. Quarterback Tom Brady had his four-game suspension tossed out by a judge on Thursday and the ordeal may prove to be a boon for the NFL when his New England Patriots open the 2015 regular season next week. "Typically, when you look at almost every bad thing or everything that would be negative or is to be avoided in sports they almost never affect the bottom line," Robert Boland, professor of sports law at Ohio University, told Reuters.

Top trio of McIlroy, Spieth, Day battling for No. 1
News ImageRory McIlroy is confident he can hold on to his world number one ranking at the Deutsche Bank Championship that tees off Friday, even with Jordan Spieth and Jason Day breathing down his neck. "I'm sort of holding this ranking, I feel, based on how I played last year," admitted McIlroy, whose 2015 campaign was disrupted by a left ankle injury that forced him out of the British Open. McIlroy regained the world number one ranking last week without lifting a club when Spieth missed the cut at the Barclays to bring his two-week reign at the top to an end.

How green should a course be in times of drought?
News ImageBy Mark Lamport-Stokes LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - For the non-golfer, the image is an unsettling one -- lush golf courses sprawling across the desert areas around Palm Springs in arid California while the state is suffering a drought for a fourth consecutive year. Similar scenes can be found in states such as Nevada, Texas and Arizona where golf courses appear to be getting more than their fair share of water in an era of climate change when usage is increasingly restricted in the private and public sectors. For the United States Golf Association (USGA), however, a much bigger picture must be viewed when it comes to assessing the management of resources on golf courses, which can play a significant environmental role in urban areas.

Brady to suit up after 'Deflategate' win; NFL appeals
News ImageStar quarterback Tom Brady will play in the New England Patriots' season opener next week after a federal judge threw out his "Deflategate" suspension on Thursday - but the National Football League has not conceded defeat just yet. Within hours of the ruling, the NFL appealed the order vacating Brady's four-game suspension.
