BOSTON (AP) - The Dodgers and Red Sox are meeting in the World Series for the first time in more than a century. But they came close in 1946, so close that official programs were printed up for the possible games at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn. But they weren't needed when Dodgers were swept by the St. Louis Cardinals in a best-of-three playoff for the National League pennant.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jimmy Butler returned to Minnesota's lineup and scored 20 points to lead the Timberwolves to a 101-91 win over the Indiana Pacers. Butler, who received a mix of boos and cheers during player introductions, sat out Saturday due to precautionary rest.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Adam Vinatieri's quest to become the NFL's career scoring leader could be put on hold because of a groin injury. He reinjured his kicking leg Sunday when he two missed extra points. Coach Frank Reich acknowledges that Vinatieri had an MRI on his right leg and was uncertain if Vinatieri would play next weekend in Oakland. He also said the Colts will try out kickers this week before making a decision on Vinatieri.
