  • Report: SP Garrett Richards Agrees to One-Year Contract with Angels

    Sunday, 4:02 AM

    Rob Carr/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  The Los Angeles Angels agreed to a one-year, $3.2 million deal with starting pitcher Garrett Richards on Saturday, according to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register.

    The Angels avoid salary arbitration with the 26-year-old Richards by coming to a compromise. Richards asked for $3.8 million while the Angels offered $2.4 million before settling on a deal.

    Richards was having a career season last year before tearing his patellar tendon in his left knee, ending his season at the end of August. Richards had surgery on the knee and is expected to be ready for opening day.

    Richards was in the race for the American League Cy Young award last season, before the injury. He pitched 168 2/3 innings, compiling a 13-4 record, 2.61 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 164 strikeouts.

  • Seau, Bettis Two of Eight Elected to Hall-of-Fame

    Sunday, 2:12 AM

    Scott Boehm/Getty Images(PHOENIX) -- Former San Diego Chargers linebacker Junior Seau and Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jerome Bettis headlined a class of eight people that were elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday.

    Former Oakland Raiders reciever Tim Brown, San Francisco 49ers defensive end Charles Haley, Kansas City Chiefs guard Will Shields, Minnesota Vikings center Mick Tingelhoff, Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts general manager Bill Polian and longtime NFL executive Ron Wolf round out the 2015 enshrinees that were selected by the Hall's board of selectors.

    To be elected into the Hall of Fame you must receive 80% of the vote from the 46 selectors.

    Seau, who tragically committed suicide in 2012, played 13 NFL seasons with the Chargers, three with the Miami Dolphins, and four with the New England Patriots. He won the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year in 1992 and was an eight-time first-team All-Pro.

    Bettis finished his career with 13,662 rushing yards, which is the fifth most in NFL history.

    Brown is fifth all-time in catches (1,094) and sixth all-time in receiving yards (14,934).

    Haley won five Super Bowl rings as a member of the 49ers and Dallas Cowboys.

    Shields never missed a game during his 14 seasons with the Chiefs.

    Everyone elected will be formally enshrined into the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, in August.

  • (10) Louisville Rallies to Drop (13) UNC in OT

    Saturday, 9:11 PM

    Christian Petersen/Getty Images(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) -- Montrezl Harrell scored 14 of his 22 points in the second half to help No. 10 Louisville erase an 18-point deficit and top No. 13 North Carolina 78-68 in overtime Saturday.

    North Carolina had a 43-25 lead with 17:51 left to play, but within less than 10 minutes, Louisville had the game tied at 53.

    Regulation ended with the game tied at 60 when Harrell's 3-point attempt clanked off the back of the rim at the buzzer.

    Terry Rozier proceeded to score the first six points in overtime, and the Cardinals never looked back as they snapped North Carolina's six-game winning streak.

    Despite the loss, North Carolina (17-5, 7-2 ACC) shot 43% from the field and outrebounded Louisville 27-16.

    Rozier had 22 points and Chris Jones added 17 for Louisville (18-3, 6-2 ACC) in the win.
