Bombers tie again

WINNIPEG—A tie usually is nothing to cheer about, but the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Edmonton Eskimos saw the positives after they played to a 38-38 finish in their final pre-season game last night.

In Winnipeg's first pre-season game against the Saskatchewan Roughriders back on June 10, the game ended in a 25-25 tie.

No overtime is played in the CFL pre-season.

Braves dump Nats

WASHINGTON—The Atlanta Braves had dropped three-straight games before this week's series against the Washington Nationals.

That only makes their rare series victory against the defending NL East champs even sweeter.

Julio Teheran earned his third-consecutive victory, and Kurt Suzuki homered, as Atlanta dumped Washington 13-2 yesterday to take two of three from the Nationals.
