Senators fall in SO

OTTAWA—Chris Neil is used to delivering a knockout punch but last night, the New Jersey Devils proved to be the heavyweights.

The Devils topped the Senators 5-4 in a shootout—ruining what otherwise was a perfect night for Neil, who was playing his 900th career game with Ottawa.

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—No turkey necessary this time; just some high-flying defence and more power running by Marshawn Lynch.

On another Thursday night—and on San Francisco’s home field again.

Jays stave off elimination

TORONTO—Marco Estrada can count on striking it rich as a free agent in the off-season.

Wherever he ends up, the Blue Jays still will owe him big-time.

For the second time in the post-season, the 32-year-old right-hander kept Toronto alive—this time with a gem of a pitching performance in a 7-1 win over Kansas City that forced a sixth game in their AL Championship Series.

Mets sweep Cubs

CHICAGO—One final, charmed swing by Daniel Murphy and the N.Y. Mets finished a playoff sweep of the Chicago Cubs.

Murphy homered for a record sixth-consecutive post-season game as the Mets brushed aside the Cubs 8-3 last night—capping a National League Championship Series in which New York never trailed.

Jays’ bats finally roar to life

TORONTO—Toronto’s power outage ended last night, allowing the Blue Jays to get one foot out of the hole they had dug for themselves in Kansas City.

Troy Tulowitzki, Josh Donaldson, and Ryan Goins each homered as the Jays battered Royals’ ace Johnny Cueto en route to an 11-8 win that cut Kansas City’s lead to 2-1 in the American League Championship Series.
