''Just lost a little bit of focus,'' Spieth said.

Reliever Carlos Torres led off the 13th with a single to center, went to second on Curtis Granderson's single to left and they both scored on Murphy's opposite-field hit off Hector Neris (2-2).

Yovani Gallardo earned his 100th career victory, Delino DeShields kept running all the way home and the Texas Rangers ended Toronto's five-game winning streak. After losing the first two games of the series, and their hold on the American League's second wild card, the Rangers avoided a sweep with the 4-1 victory Thursday. DeShields had a part in every run even without an RBI, including his single that rolled under the glove of charging right fielder Jose Bautista with two runners on in the seventh.

Robert Griffin III evaded questions Thursday about when - or even if - he sustained a concussion in the Washington Redskins' second preseason game. The Redskins said later Thursday that the quarterback was cleared by an independent neurologist to play Saturday night at the Baltimore Ravens in what could be his last preseason action. Last week against Detroit, Griffin left after four series, going 2 for 5 with two fumbles, three sacks and a few other big hits.


Fire Away: How to Prepare For Hunting Season


Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Although hunting season may still be months away, it's never too early to start checking things off your to-do list. After all, no matter how you slice it, there is a lot of work that goes into getting ready. Fortunately, for today's hunter, things have changed drastically from decades past. It used to be that hunters slept in tents, heated tin cans of beans over an open fire, wore puffy down parkas to keep warm, and stayed near paved roads in case they got stuck. Now, lodges, guid

What Type of Bug Bite Is That?


Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Sunny summer days are meant for outdoor fun, but few things ruin time outside more quickly than bites from pests. Insect bites can result in consequences that range from minor, yet aggravating, irritation to extreme pain and even potentially fatal illnesses. If you are on the receiving end of a bite, it is important to detect which pest inflicted it so you can determine the best course of treatment, as well as investigate whether there is a pest problem on your property that warrants

Spit Happens: Get Active This Summer With New Portable Spittoon


Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Summertime means outdoor barbecues, baseball games and time at the beach or pool. Outdoor activities are plentiful and often, but for the 9 million smokeless tobacco users, they can present a conundrum. One of the problems for smokeless tobacco users is the unsightly, telltale "spit cup." For one, it can make others uneasy seeing a clear bottle sitting in a car, by the beach chair or on the deck in the backyard, never mind prompting uncomfortable conversation. Carrying a large chew-

Light Up Your Landscaping Like a Pro


Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Summer months are quickly approaching, and many homeowners are getting lawns prepared for cookouts, family gatherings and entertaining late-night porch hangouts. According to the American Lighting Association (ALA), proper outdoor lighting is just as essential for a beautiful landscape as are a lush lawn, bright flowerbeds and manicured shrubs.

This Spring, It's all About That Bass Fishing -- and Your Basic Gear


Five words or less(NewsUSA) - The days of using a stick, some string and a worm are as much a part of American culture as apple pie and baseball. Unlike that time, there are now many choices for anglers this spring, depending on where you'll be fishing. In fact, selecting your gear is half the fun. But for starters, set aside the rods, reels, rigs, jigs and tackle, it's also just as important to remember these items that are often overlooked: * Use sunscreen. You only have to suffer from sun poisoning one time t

New Treatment for Undiagnosed Sports Injuries -- From Your Dentist


Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Sports-related injuries are common and, when an athlete is hurt, care follows a proven, long-standing protocol of rehabilitation. But what happens when impact occurs to the head, face or jaw, and -- at the time -- no immediate injury is diagnosed? Weeks, months or even years later, many of these players begin to experience headaches, TMJ/D, migraines, vertigo or tinnitus -- estimated to impact 50 million people in the U.S. to some degree. "Undiagnosed head trauma from sports inj

Taking Care on and off the Sports Field


Five words or less(NewsUSA) - It's one of the unfortunate truths of our obsession with sports: Coaches don't normally get much credit unless they take their teams all the way to a title. And yet, there actually still are some coaches -- let's call them the good guys -- who view at least a part of their jobs as helping to build character in their players while easing the mental and physical irritations that come with competition. "Coaches have the power to teach much more than the physical elements of the game,"

Erase Strokes From Your Golf Game -- No Pencil Required


Five words or less(NewsUSA) - "To shave strokes from your golf game, the only equipment you need is a good eraser." Although this phrase is uttered jokingly by many golfers, recreational golfers who've reached their plateau have had very few other options, until now. "If recreational golfers insist on following the rules used by the PGA Tour, there's little they can do to immediately improve their game," says John Hoeflich, executive director, of the United States Recreational Golf Association (USRGA).
