Tuesday's Results

Major League Baseball

American League

Yu  Darvish  was perfect through 8  2/3 innings and the Texas Rangers defeated
the  Houston Astros,  7-0,  in an  American League  West  matchup on  Tuesday.
Darvish  (1-0)  seemed unstoppable and  was one  out away from perfection when
Marwin Gonzalez hit a ground ball between his legs and into center field for a
single.  Darvish was then replaced by Michael Kirkman, and despite not getting
to finish out the game, recorded an impressive 14 strikeouts.

Elsewhere in the AL:

Baltimore Orioles 7, Tampa Bay Rays 4
Cleveland Indians 4, Toronto Blue Jays 1
Seattle Mariners 7, Oakland Athletics 1

National League

Clayton  Kershaw  tossed a masterpiece  on Opening  Day, but the San Francisco
Giants  have a fine young southpaw of their own. Madison Bumgarner surrendered
just  two hits over eight dominant shutout innings in the Giants' 3-0 win over
the  Los  Angeles Dodgers  in the  middle test of  a three-game set. Bumgarner
(1-0),  who retired  18 Dodgers in a row  at one point, struck out six for San
Francisco,  which tallied 10 hits but grounded into four double plays. Kershaw
fanned  seven  in his  four-hit shutout  on Monday.  Joaquin Arias tallied two
hits,  an RBI and  a run scored, while Sergio Romo picked up his first save of
the season with a 1-2-3 ninth.

Elsewhere in the NL:

Colorado Rockies 8, Milwaukee Brewers 4

National Basketball Association

Carmelo  Anthony and the New York Knicks ended the Heat's 17-game home winning
streak,  though  the win came  with an asterisk  as Miami rested LeBron James,
Dwyane  Wade  and Mario Chalmers for  the second straight game. Anthony tied a
career  high with 50 points on an efficient 18-of-26 shooting night, including
7-of-10 from behind the arc, and the Knicks pulled away down the stretch for a
102-90 victory at American Airlines Arena. New York, winners of nine in a row,
got  14  points from  J.R. Smith and  10 points and  nine assists from Raymond
Felton while also welcoming back All-Star center Tyson Chandler, who missed 10
games due to a bulging disc in his neck.

Elsewhere in the NBA:

Washington Wizards 90, Chicago Bulls 86
Los Angeles Lakers 101, Orlando Magic 81

The  Pittsburgh  Penguins finally  had an injury  they couldn't overcome. With
Sidney  Crosby out thanks  to a fractured jaw, the Penguins had their 15- game
win  streak broken  with a startling 4-1  loss to the Buffalo Sabres at CONSOL
Energy  Center. Kevin Porter notched his first two goals of the season to help
back  a 19-save  effort from Ryan Miller that helped deal Pittsburgh its first
setback since a 4-1 ousting by Carolina on Feb. 28.

Darvish  (1-0)  seemed unstoppable and  was one  out away from perfection when

Cincinnati  Reds outfielder  Ryan Ludwick  will undergo  surgery Wednesday  to
repair  a dislocated  right shoulder  the  veteran sustained  on Opening  Day.
An  MRI taken Tuesday revealed torn cartilage in Ludwick's right shoulder, the
Reds announced. The team has not provided a timetable on how long the 34-year-
old, who served as Cincinnati's cleanup hitter during Monday's 3-1 loss to the
Los  Angeles  Angels of Anaheim,  will be out  of action. Ludwick suffered the
injury  while  diving head-first  into third  base during  the third inning of
Monday's  opener.  He was immediately  removed from the  contest in favor of a
pinch  runner. An  integral part of Cincinnati's run to last season's National
League Central title, Ludwick was re-signed to a two-year contract by the Reds
over the winter and batted .275 with 26 home runs and 80 RBI over 125 games in
2012.

NHL

The  Pittsburgh  Penguins finally  had an injury  they couldn't overcome. With
Sidney  Crosby out thanks  to a fractured jaw, the Penguins had their 15- game
win  streak broken  with a startling 4-1  loss to the Buffalo Sabres at CONSOL
Energy  Center. Kevin Porter notched his first two goals of the season to help
back  a 19-save  effort from Ryan Miller that helped deal Pittsburgh its first
setback since a 4-1 ousting by Carolina on Feb. 28.

The  NHL  trade  deadline  is  set for  Wednesday  afternoon  and  the  Boston
Bruins  have beaten  the clock  by adding  a veteran  presence by  trading for
Dallas   Stars  forward   Jaromir  Jagr.  The  Stars  acquired  forwards  Lane
MacDermid  and Cody  Payne,  as well  as a  conditional  second-round pick  in
the  2013 NHL  Entry Draft,  in exchange  for the  future Hall  of Famer.  The
draft  choice becomes  a  first-round  selection if  Boston  advances to  this
year's  Eastern Conference  finals. Jagr,  41, was  in his  first season  with
Dallas  and  has 14 goals with  12 assists in  34 games this season. He signed
with  the Stars as a free agent last July and has recorded 679 goals and 1,000
assists over the course of his NHL career.

The  Sharks and  Rangers have pulled off another deal, with the former sending
forward  Ryane  Clowe to  Manhattan for  two 2013  draft choices, the Rangers'
second-  round  pick and  a third-round  selection from  Florida that had been
previously  acquired by  the Rangers,  along with  a conditional  second-round
choice in 2014. That conditional pick remains as is if Clowe re-signs with New
York or the Rangers win two playoff series. If neither condition is satisfied,
the  pick becomes  a fifth-rounder. Clowe -- who waived his no-trade clause to
facilitate  the  deal -- has  been snakebitten this  year, failing to record a
single  goal  in 28  games but picking  up 11 assists  and 79 penalty minutes.
In  423 NHL  appearances since 2005, all  with San Jose, Clowe has totaled 101
goals  and 271  points with 567 PIM. The 30-year-old native of Newfoundland is
two years removed from setting career highs in goals (24) and points (62).

NFL

Carson  Palmer  is going  from  the  Black Hole  to  the  Arizona desert.  The
Cardinals  swung  a deal  for the  veteran quarterback,  sending the second of
their  two  sixth-round picks in  this year's draft  and a conditional pick in
2014  to  the Oakland Raiders, who  will also send their seventh-round pick in
this  year's draft  to Arizona as part of the transaction. In addition, Palmer
has  agreed  to a  new contract  with the  Cardinals, terms  of which were not
disclosed. The Arizona Republic reported the new two-year deal to be worth $16
million with $10 million guaranteed. The 33-year-old Palmer spent the past two
seasons  in Oakland and in 24 starts, threw for 6,771 yards with 35 touchdowns
and 30 picks, posting an 8-16 mark as the club's starter.

The  San  Francisco  49ers  have  acquired quarterback  Colt  McCoy  from  the
Cleveland  Browns in  exchange for  a pair  of undisclosed  picks in  the 2013
draft.  The 49ers will also receive an undisclosed pick in the upcoming draft.
McCoy  will compete  for  the  backup position  to  starter Colin  Kaepernick.
The 25-year-old, who was originally selected in the third round (85th overall)
of the 2010 NFL Draft by Cleveland, appeared in eight games his rookie season,
throwing   for   1,576  yards,   six   touchdowns   and  nine   interceptions.
The  former Texas  standout started 13 games  for the Browns in 2011 before he
was replaced by rookie Brandon Weeden in 2012. Over 24 career games, McCoy has
thrown for 4,388 yards, 21 touchdowns and 20 interceptions.

COLLEGE SPORTS

It  didn't take  long for  Andy Enfield  to cash  in on  Florida Gulf  Coast's
Sweet  16 run,  as he was named the  new head men's basketball coach at USC on
Monday.  Florida  Gulf Coast became  the first No. 15  seed to reach the Sweet
16 of the NCAA Tournament this season -- Enfield's second at the school. After
winning   the   Atlantic  Sun   Tournament,  the  Eagles  upset  second-seeded
Georgetown  and  seventh-seed San Diego  State to set  a school record with 26
wins.  The  Cinderella run ended  against Florida  in the round-of-16, but not
before the program captured the nation's attention with their style of play.

Tulsa has become the latest school to find a new home, as the Golden Hurricane
will  leave  Conference USA  to join  the re-branded  Big East, effective July
1, 2014. Tulsa will join the members of the Big East left over after the split
of  the so-called  Catholic 7, as well as incoming members from other leagues.
The   soon-to-be  renamed   league  will  consist  of  Tulsa,  East  Carolina,
Houston,  Memphis,  SMU, Tulane  and UCF,  who are  joining Big East holdovers
Connecticut,  Cincinnati,  South Florida  and  Temple.  Navy  will join  as  a
football-only  member in  2015, giving  the  league the  necessary 12  members
to hold  a conference championship game.
