NFL-DEFLATEGATE

NEW YORK (AP) -- A ruling from U.S. District Judge Richard Berman could come today in the Tom Brady versus Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') Deflategate case. Berman said yesterday after meeting with Brady and Goodell that no settlement had been reached and that he might offer his judicial decision today or tomorrow or sometime this week.

Berman will have to either affirm or throw out Goodell's decision in July to uphold Brady's four-game suspension. The NFL concluded the quarterback colluded with two Patriots ball handlers to deflate footballs to gain an edge in a 45-7 victory over the Colts. The NFL Players Association has accused the league of handling the discipline unfairly for Brady, who has denied any role in the scandal nicknamed "Deflategate."

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- It's one of the great sports rivalries. The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants. It all began back in New York City before the clubs moved west in the 1950's and continues today. Last night they opened a three-game series in L.A. with the Dodgers winning 5-4 in 14 innings. The win put the Dodgers 4 1/2 games in front of the second-place Giants in the National League West.

This evening the star of the World Series last fall, Madison Bumgarner, gets the ball for the Giants against former Cy Young Award winner Zack Greinke (GREHN'-kee). Bumgarner starts the day with a record of 16-6 with 192 strikeouts, while Greinke has the lowest earned run average in baseball at 1.61.

With an eye on the playoffs, the Giants are also 5 1/2 games back of the Cubs for the final wild card berth. This evening Chicago is home to the Reds.

Pittsburgh ace Gerrit Cole is looking for his 16th win of the season tonight. Cole, who is 15-7 with a 2.44 ERA, was originally set to pitch Wednesday but was moved up a day so he can start Sunday night against NL Central-lead St. Louis. The Pirates start the day five games back of the Cards in the NL Central. Tonight Cole and the Bucs are in Milwaukee against the Brewers, while St. Louis is hosting a desperate Washington team.

The Nationals currently find themselves out of playoff contention as they trail the Mets in the NL East by 6 1/2 games. New York is home to the Phillies tonight.

The tightest race in baseball continues to be the American League East. Both of the top two teams, the first-place Jays and the Yankees, lost last night. The Blue Jays are once again home to Cleveland this evening while the Yankees are in Boston. The Indians, by the way, have won their last six games to put themselves back in the AL wild card hunt as they trail the Rangers by four games now.

The rest of the day's card has the Diamondbacks in Denver facing the Rockies in an afternoon game, followed by a night contest, Baltimore home to Tampa Bay, Miami at Atlanta, the Twins hosting the White Sox, Seattle at Houston, the A's at home to the Angels and Texas at San Diego.
