Martin back at Brier as Alberta coach

ST. JOHN'S, N.L.—You can excuse curling fans for doing a double-take at the Tim Hortons Brier.

Legendary skip Kevin Martin is sporting familiar Alberta colours at the national men's curling championship this week at Mile One Centre.

The 2010 Olympic champion is back at the Brier to coach his son, Karrick, and the provincial team skipped by Brendan Bottcher.

Jays head on road after getting swept

TORONTO—Two blowout losses, a series sweep, and a losing streak that’s showing no signs of ending.

The Blue Jays left Toronto after another loss to Tampa Bay last night searching for answers and hoping a return to the road will help them end a nasty funk.

R.A. Dickey gave up three home runs as the Rays doubled the Jays 6-3, handing them their fifth-straight loss.

Gushue chasing elusive title

OTTAWA—Newfoundland and Labrador’s Brad Gushue appears to have everything in place to make a run at capturing that elusive Tim Hortons Brier title.

He has picked up some big wins this season and is skipping the top-ranked team in the country.

Gushue also is off to a great start at the national men’s curling championship and looks primed to be in the mix come playoff time.
