Clayton Kershaw looks sharp as Dodgers hold off Reds

CINCINNATI — The No. 22 on his back, the reach-for-the-sky windup and long stride toward home were all familiar when Clayton Kershaw returned to the mound last week at Dodger Stadium. But he looked even more like himself Sunday. Kershaw struck out eight in five innings against the Cincinnati Reds in his second start since returning from an elbow injury and the Dodgers hit three home runs in the first three innings, holding on for an 8-5 victory over the Reds. After losing on Friday, the Dodgers took two out of three in the series against a possible wild-card game opponent. Kershaw went slightly deeper into the game than he had in his return against the Diamondbacks last Monday (4 1/3 innings). He threw 74 pitches, up from 50 in his first start back. But it was the quality of those pitches

Vigil: How many episodes are left and will there be a series 2?

The Suranne Jones drama is hurtling towards its climax (Picture: BBC)Vigil has kept fans gripped on Sunday nights for four episodes, and the end is fast approaching. The hit series, created by Tom Edge, is still throwing up more twists and turns as the race to find out who killed HMS Vigil crewman Craig Burke (Martin Compston) continues. At the centre of the drama is DCI Amy Silva (Suranne Jones) and her colleague and lover DS Kirsten Longacre (Rose Leslie) who are trying to hunt down a killer, Amy while stuck onboard the claustrophobic titular submarine with no idea who she can trust. Last week’s instalment knocked everyone for six with that cliff hanger (which we won’t spoil for you here). Surely things can’t get any more explosive? We’re going to go with yes. With Vigil fe...

49ers 17, Eagles 11: Top takeaways as defense, Jimmy Garoppolo produce 2-0 road trip

PHILADELPHIA — A goal-line stand, a couple of Nick Bosa sacks, and a lot of action by safety Jimmie Ward highlighted the 49ers’ defensive efforts to spoil the Philadelphia Eagles’ home opener 17-11 Sunday. And what about the 49ers’ offense? Jimmy Garoppolo, in baseball parlance, produced a complete-game victory in the comeback, and he didn’t cede any snaps to rookie Trey Lance, even after a very sluggish start. But tor the second straight game, things got tense in the fourth quarter, and a penalty by Ward helped trigger an Eagles’ touchdown drive with 4:20 remaining. Even so, the 49ers (2-0) are undefeated heading into their home opener next Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers, completing a 10-day road trip that began in Detroit and included a layover this past week in West Virginia

Rams overcome mistakes, get late field goal to beat Colts 27-24

INDIANAPOLIS — Matthew Stafford had the Indianapolis Colts right where he wanted them, in a tie game with the Rams in need of the quarterback’s cool-headed leadership. The game-winning drives that Stafford became famous for with the Detroit Lions shouldn’t come as often with the Rams, who aren’t trailing or tied in the fourth as often. But when the Rams needed his poise Sunday, Stafford guided the Rams 55 yards to set up a 38-yard field goal by Matt Gay that gave them a 27-24 victory over the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. An interception by Jalen Ramsey clinched the win after the Colts sent in Jacob Eason to replace injured quarterback Carson Wentz. The Rams are 2-0 going into next Sunday’s home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Colts are 0-2. The Rams had gone up 17-6 after taking

SF Giants surprises: Kris Bryant at second base, Johnny Cueto’s return among considerations

SAN FRANCISCO — After left-hander Alex Wood made a successful return from the injured list on Saturday against the Atlanta Braves, the Giants are hopeful Johnny Cueto could soon join him in the team’s starting rotation.

Giants manager Gabe Kapler said the club was initially hopeful Cueto would be healthy enough to throw his first bullpen next week, but his elbow has responded well to playing catch and the team now has optimism he could be activated prior t
