The phone starts ringing in the home of 37-year-old Ashlee Brnjas as early at 4:30 a.m. when the racehorses she trains for her father John are being prepared for exercise.

October 10, 2018 10:03 PM Auston Matthews has forced himself into the greatest-player-in-the-world conversation

Auston Matthews is on pace for 143.5 goals this season, but if anybody offers a wager, take the under. John Tavares is on pace for 123, but the same rule applies. The last time two teammates scored at least six goals in their first four games one of them was named Wayne Gretzky, and the other merely reached the Hall of Fame. It’s a good start. Look, the Toronto 12

October 8, 2018 12:57 AM Baker Mayfield leads Browns to OT win over Ravens

And after so many mistakes by its special teams, Cleveland finally got a decisive play to win.

MILAN—Cristiano Ronaldo is available to play for his Italian soccer team on Saturday.

October 1, 2018 12:01 AM The kids will have to be all right on Jays’ mound next year

ST. PETERSBURG, FLA.—The visitor’s clubhouse cubicle, with “Marcus Stroman” slotted into the name bracket, is pretty much empty, just a couple of tees hangin’. Eventually, presumably, the pitcher, on the disabled list with a blister problem, will saunter into the premises. He lives hereabouts and has more or less checked out of team dynamics, not checking 8

Besides exercising their offensive muscle, there were other subplots with positive outcomes for the Leafs. Kasperi Kapanen looked right at home on the left wing with Tavares and Marner. Kapanen was getting a shot there because Zach Hyman was out with a hip pointer. Frederik Gauthier, hurt most of training camp, got a look-see on the fourth line, though 15

September 27, 2018 9:49 PM Curtis McElhinney defending his backup role with the Leafs

The veteran goalie and solid-as-a-rock backup for the Leafs is all but confirmed to reprise his role for the upcoming season.

It was only natural when Garret Sparks made an early bid for the job that there 8
