Roughriders take tight game over B.C. Lions

VANCOUVER—The B.C. Lions know they're facing an uphill slog in the second half of the season after dropping yet another close game.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders (5-4) squeezed out a 24-21 win Saturday night, handing the Leos (3-6) their first home loss of the season.

Riders quarterback Zach Collaros threw for 215 yards, while B.C.'s Travis Lulay put up 231.

Pannone stellar for Jays in first start

TORONTO—Thomas Pannone realized early that he was cruising through innings and keeping Baltimore's hitters off-balance in his first major league start.

But a sixth-inning defensive gem from Randal Grichuk—who dove for an Austin Wynns liner in centre field and kept the ball in his glove while bouncing to the turf—really got the rookie thinking about just how good his outing could be.
