Pompey excited to make WBC debut

DUNEDIN, Fla.—Dalton Pompey remembers watching the 2009 World Baseball Classic in Toronto as a teenager and wondering if he'd ever get a chance to play in the tournament.

Fast forward eight years and he finally has his answer.

The 24-year-old outfielder from Mississauga, Ont. will be in Miami next week when Canada opens WBC play against the Dominican Republic on Thursday.

Habs rally for OT win over Devils

NEWARK, N.J.—The Montreal Canadiens found a way to win last night despite basically showing up for only the third period and overtime against the New Jersey Devils.

Alex Galchenyuk scored on a power play at 2:54 of overtime as the Canadiens rallied from a two-goal, third-period deficit for a 4-3 victory to win consecutive games for the first time since early January.

Last-second win for Raptors

NEW YORK—DeMar DeRozan made a turnaround jumper with 1.9 seconds to go to lead the Toronto Raptors to a 92-91 victory over the New York Knicks last night.

The Raptors won their fourth in a row—doing it with DeRozan and defence after learning earlier in the day that all-star Kyle Lowry will have right wrist surgery that could sideline him for the rest of the regular season.

Fowler snaps drought

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.—Rickie Fowler didn't care about pretty. He cared about winning.

Staked to a four-shot lead, Fowler hit one putt into a sprinkler hole and a tee shot into the water.

But when his lead was cut to one shot, Fowler answered with two big birdie putts to regain control and finished off a four-shot victory in the Honda Classic.
