Dolphins Knowshon Moreno working his way back to full strength

By John Evenson

Dolphins free agent signing Knowshon Moreno is finally back taking part in full contact football this week at practice, the Dolphins hoping he can improve their 26th ranked running game from last season. One thing he's already done is improve fellow running back Lamar Miller's performances.

Miller has outperformed Moreno in most of the offseason workouts so far, looking much more motivated than he did last season. Of course, part of Moreno's slow start was because of his nagging knee injury and the fact he came into camp a little heavy, but with knee surgery now behind him, he's ready to be the Knowshon Moreno Dolphins fans were hoping he's be.

PITTBURGH (AP) -- Fans of great pitching should enjoy tonight's National League wild card game in Pittsburgh. The contest between the Pirates and Cubs features Chicago's 22-game winner Jake Arrieta (ehr-ee-ET'-uh), who had a 0.75 earned run average after the All-Star break, against 19-game winner Gerrit Cole. He finished the year with a 2.77 ERA while Arrieta's ERA for the season was just 1.77.

These clubs finished the regular season with the second and third best records in baseball. Only St. Louis, which resides in the same division as the Cubs and Pirates, the NL Central, had more wins. The Cardinals wrapped up the regular season with a mark of 100-62 while the Pirates were 98-64 and the Cubs 97-65.

For what it's worth, the Cubs won the season series 11-8.

The game marks the first time the Cubs have been in the post season since 2008.

Coming up Thursday, the American League Division playoffs begin with games in Kansas City and Toronto.

The Blue Jays will play host to the Rangers in the afternoon with 18-game winner David Price going for the home team against Yovani Gallardo (gy-YAR'-doh). The Jays won the American League East title while the Rangers finished first in the AL West.

The night game has the Royals entertaining the Astros. Houston advanced to the ALDS with a 3-0 win over the Yankees Tuesday night in the American League wild card game. The Royals have announced they'll start Yordano Ventura in the game against Houston's 19-game winner Collin McHugh.


UNDATED (AP) -- It may be hard to believe, but the National Hockey League starts a new season tonight with four games. In Chicago, the Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks open defense of their title by playing host to the New York Rangers, who open a season on the road for the eighth straight season.

Before the game, the Blackhawks will raise the Stanley Cup championship banner, their third in six seasons.

In Toronto, the Maple Leafs and Canadiens get the new season going. A year ago, the Habs swept all for games from the Leafs.

Calgary's Flames are hosting Vancouver in a rematch of their Western Conference First Round series last spring. The Flames won that series in six games.

And in Los Angeles, the Kings are hosting the Sharks after taking three of the five games they played last season.


NEW YORK (AP) -- NFL owners are meeting in New York today. Among other things, they will discuss the prospect of expansion. They are looking at three markets: Los Angeles, Europe and Mexico. The state of L.A. affects three other markets, St. Louis, San Diego and Oakland, as the owners of those teams are looking to move their teams to Los Angeles.

Nothing will be decided at these meetings as no decisions on an actual move to Los Angeles can come before early 2016.

The NFL has not had teams in Los Angeles since the Rams and Raiders both moved in 1995.
