Leaner Lowry leads Raptors

VANCOUVER—Kyle Lowry slashed through defenders with ease—moving with a fluidity earned over a summer of hard work.

The Raptors’ point guard netted 26 points in 21 minutes to lift Toronto to a 93-73 victory over the L.A. Clippers in the team’s NBA pre-season debut, showing off what a summer of slimming down can do.

“I thought Kyle moved well,” said Raptors’ coach Dwane Casey.

Burris sets record

OTTAWA—It’s not like Henry Burris needed any more accolades.

Burris ran for two touchdowns, threw for another two, and completed a record-setting night with 45 completions as the Ottawa Redblacks dumped the Montreal Alouettes 39-17 last night.

In the most lopsided win in the Redblacks’ two-year history.

A day after being passed in the race for the second AL wild-card spot, the Astros retook control last night with a 7-6 win over the Seattle Mariners.
