Giants win protest, rain-shortened game to resume (Yahoo Sports)

The San Francisco Giants have won their protest filed with Major League Baseball, and will now get to resume a rain-shortened game the Chicago Cubs thought they had won. MLB says this is the first successful protest since 1986. MLB executive Joe Torre ruled Wednesday on a game at Wrigley Field played the previous night. MLB ruled that tarp had not been properly put away after its previous use and therefore there was a ''malfunction of a mechanical field device under control of the home club.'' Because of that, it is now a suspended game that will resume at 4:05 p.m. CDT Thursday.


Hoyer beats injury, Manziel to win starting job (Yahoo Sports)

Brian Hoyer defied long odds - and stiff-armed Johnny Football - to keep his dream job. Through sweat and tears, he fought his way back from a serious knee injury only to be faced with the Browns drafting Johnny Manziel, college football's dynamic quarterback with the cult-like following. He endured grueling rehab to get back on the field sooner than expected, stayed focused as Manzielmania consumed the Browns, and ignored trade rumors. It will be Hoyer who will lead the Browns, his hometown team, onto the field for the Sept. 7 opener against the archrival Pittsburgh Steelers.

Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly received encouraging news in his battle with cancer. An initial physical exam showed no evidence of sinus cancer three months after the former Buffalo Bills quarterback completed radiation and chemotherapy treatments, Dr. Peter Costantino said in a release issued by New York City's Lenox Hill Hospital on Wednesday. ''The treatments have so far completely eliminated Mr. Kelly's pain, and his level of function has essentially returned to normal,'' said Costantino, who heads the hospital's head and neck institute. The cancer then spread to his sinus in March.
