Four Phillies Combine for No-Hitter Against Braves


Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(ATLANTA) -- Phillies starter Cole Hamels left after the sixth inning on Labor Day with a no-hitter in place and watched three other teammates complete the no-hit bid in their 7-0 win over the Braves.

Hamels threw 108 pitches and struck out seven with five walks, but was battling the hot Atlanta heat and exited after getting Phil Gosselin to pop out to end the inning.

Jake Diekman came into the game, but did not know about the no-hitter until he looked at the scoreboard and struck out two in the seventh.

Ken Giles was aware of the combined no-hitter and struck out the side in the eighth inning.

Jonathan Papelbon felt the pressure coming in during the bottom of the ninth and retired Gosselin by getting him to line out to first base to complete the 11th combined no-hitter in major league history.

Rob Gronkowski Cleared for Week 1 Against Dolphins


Elsa/Getty Images(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) -- Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski said he's ready to go for their season opener against the Miami Dolphins.

Gronkowski had reconstructive surgery on his left knee during the offseason and doctors gave him the green light on Monday.

"Super excited, super pumped. I feel mentally and physically ready, for sure. No doubt about it," Gronkowski said Monday. "My mentality now is I'm ready to go, I'm ready to be out there, I'm ready to hit, I'm ready to start going."

Gronkowski plans on wearing a knee brace on Sunday, but doesn't see that stopping him from being productive.

"It feels good to be out here now this week, preparing for the Dolphins, knowing that I put myself in the best situation the last few weeks and few months to get back out here," he said. "That was my plan the whole time -- to work as hard as I could so I'd be ready for this week."

Astros Fire Bo Porter


Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(HOUSTON) -- The Houston Astros fired manager Bo Porter on Monday.

Porter was in the midst of his second year. Bench coach Dave Trembley was also let go.

"Bo's passion and energy are unparalleled, and his desire to win unquestioned," General manager Jeff Luhnow said in a statement. "This decision was not made because of our current level of competitiveness in the Major Leagues. I recognize that our win-loss record is largely a product of an organizational strategy for which I am responsible.

"... What we will seek going forward is a consistent and united message throughout the entire organization. It is essential that as an organization we create an atmosphere at the Major League level where our young players can come up and continue to develop and succeed. Ultimately, I am responsible for creating that culture, and I will do everything in my power to do so-even when it means making difficult moves like the one we made today."

The Astros were 59-79 and owned the second worst record in the league.

"This was not an easy decision to make," owner Jim Crane said in a statement. "We wish Bo nothing but the best in the future. Jeff has my full support moving forward. Our goal to bring a championship to Houston remains."

Tom Lawless takes over as interim manager.

Texans Bring Back Safety Danieal Manning


National Football League(NEW YORK) -- Even though he left the team via free agency this offseason, veteran safety Danieal Manning is back with Houston Texans.

The Texans had originally offered Manning a pay cut following last season, but he declined and instead opted for free agency. He signed a contract with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Manning wound up getting cut by the Bengals, and decided to reunite with his old team.

"Health-wise he's perfect," Manning's agent, Russel Hicks said. "He may be in better shape than when he left. His leg was fine. He was cleared to play. He played all four [preseason games]. It just wasn't good fit for him in [Cincinnati]. It was a numbers game. It happens like that. The right fit for you is the right fit for you."

The 32-year-old Manning is an eight-year NFL veteran who can still contribute to an NFL team. He battled injuries last season and appeared in just six games, recording 24 tackles.

Brewers Acquire Reds Reliever Jonathan Broxton from the Reds


Sarah Glenn/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- As Major League Baseball enters the final month of the regular season, the Milwaukee Brewers have helped solidify their bullpen by acquiring reliever Jonathan Broxton from the Cincinnati Reds.

No longer the player he once was during his time with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Broxton has re-emerged has a dominant reliever this season with the Reds.

"Part of the thinking was his contract. We had to recognize we're taking on this contract for next year, too,'' Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said. "You try to get somebody who can help. There's a lot of big money guys today, whether they're relievers or [position] players, whatever. We've done a pretty good job with bullpens without having to spend a lot of money.''

In 51 games this season, the 30-year-old Broxton is 4-2 with a 1.86 ERA and a WHIP of 1.01.

More importantly for the Brewers, Broxton is eligible to pitch for the team during the postseason, as he was acquired prior to the September 1st deadline.

He is expected to serve as the set-up man for closer Francisco Rodriguez.

Phillies Trade Outfielder John Mayberry Jr. to the Blue Jays


Photos.com/Thinkstock(TORONTO) -- Fighting for a playoff spot in the American League, the Toronto Blue Jays have acquired veteran outfielder John Mayberry Jr. from the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for minor leaguer Gustavo Pierre.

If the Blue Jays do indeed make the playoffs, Mayberry just made the cutoff to be postseason eligible.

The 30-year-old Mayberry is a solid player who is also a versatile outfielder who can play all three positions. He has been on the disabled list since July 21 because of inflammation in his left wrist, and is expected to be activated in the near future.

In 63 games this season, Mayberry hit .213 with six home runs and 21 RBIs. In six Major League seasons, all with the Phillies, he hit .242 with 52 home runs and 169 RBIs.

The 22-year-old Pierre batted a combined .260 with eight homers and 43 RBIs at Class A and Double-A.

Heading into Labor Day, the Blue Jays are five games behind the Detroit Tigers for the final Wild Card spot.

49ers Ray McDonald Arrested for Domestic Violence


Scott Boehm/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The San Francisco 49ers find themselves with another player in trouble with the law. Defensive lineman Ray McDonald was arrested early Sunday morning on charges of domestic violence.

San Jose police Sgt. Heather Randol confirmed the arrest occurred following a call at 2:48 a.m. local time. McDonald later posted bail and was released from the Santa Clara Sherrif's Department. San Francisco general manager Trent Baalke said the team takes "such matters seriously" while a league source told ABC News the NFL is aware of the incident.

The 29-year-old defensive lineman reportedly had an altercation with his fianceé at a party celebrating his birthday. The woman showed police bruising on her body which led to McDonald's arrest.

This incident comes in the same week that teammate Aldon Smith was suspended by the NFL nine games for multiple off-field run-ins, including a DUI last September. McDonald was also arrested for DUI in 2010.

On Thursday, the NFL publicized new policies regarding domestic violence. First-time offenders will be suspended six games while a second arrest could mean a lifetime ban.

Ryan Mallett Traded to Texans


Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Houston Texans have acquired quarterback Ryan Mallett from the New England Patriots for a conditional sixth or seventh-round pick in 2016, a source said on Sunday.

Mallett had served as the primary backup for Tom Brady in each of the last two seasons after being drafted in the third round in 2011. A 6'6" quarterback out of Arkansas, Mallett will enter Houston as the backup for veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick. 

The Texans will waive Case Keenum in order to make room for Mallett and still have rookie Tom Savage on the depth chart. It was a rookie in New England that led to the trade as Jimmy Garoppolo completed 46 of 79 passes for 618 yards and five touchdowns in the preseason.

During limited action this year, Mallett was just 14-for-26 passing in three games with one touchdown.

Kahne Wins in Atlanta; Stewart Crashes in Return


Chris Graythen/NASCAR via Getty Images(HAMPTON, Ga.) -- With only two races remaining before the NASCAR "Chase for the Cup," Kasey Kahne cemented his spot in the new postseason format, winning the Oral B USA 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday.

Kahne had to hold off Matt Kenseth on a green-white checkered, but got a good jump on the restart to take the checkered flag. Kenseth did end up qualifying for the Chase on points by finishing second. Denny Hamlin finished third while Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards rounded out the top-5.

The 34-year-old first took the lead off a restart with 23 laps remaining and again surged to the front of the pack on the final restart. Harvick, who won the Nationwide race on Saturday, led 195 laps but made contact with Joey Logano on the final restart, denying him a weekend sweep.

Making his return to NASCAR three weeks after a crash that killed Kevin Ward, Jr. at a dirt track race in upstate New York, Tony Stewart blew out his right front tire on lap 172, ending his night in 41st place.
