UNDATED (AP) -- The Blue Jays walked all over the Red Sox, winning at home 8-0. Juan Francisco had the big day at the plate with four runs batted in. Marcus Stroman toyed with a no hitter for six plus innings and struck out seven in seven innings of work. He and two relievers combined for a one-hitter.

The loser was Red Sox starter Rubby (ROO `-bee) De La Rosa. Boston DH David Ortiz left the game in the ninth after injuring his lower back on a swing.

Boston's long-time rival, New York, got a good pitching performance from Brandon McCarthy in a 4-2 win over the Rangers. He threw six solid innings and fellow newcomer Chase Headley delivered another timely hit in the win. New York's sixth in seven games. Texas fell to 3-17 in July and dropped 22 games under .500 for the first time since the final week of the 1988 season.


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Seattle Mariners have reacquired first baseman Kendrys Morales in a trade with the Minnesota Twins for minor-league pitcher Stephen Pryor. Morales spent under seven weeks with the Twins, who signed him to boost their lineup as a designated hitter but used him often at first base with Joe Mauer (MAW'-ur) injured. Morales hit .234 in 39 games with 11 doubles, one home run and 18 RBIs.

Morales had 23 home runs and 80 RBIs last year for the Mariners, both the second-highest season totals of his career.


FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -- The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms on a new contract with receiver Roddy White. White, who holds the team records for career receptions and yards receiving, agreed to a four-year deal.


ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) -- Colts fullback Stanley Havili will open training camp on the physically unable to perform list. Havili was Indy's primary fullback last season after being acquired from Philadelphia in an offseason trade. He has played in 28 games, starting 10, and has rushed 13 times for 29 yards and one TD. He also has 25 catches for 171 yards.


OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- Running back Ray Rice of the Ravens has received a two-game suspension from the NFL following his offseason arrest for domestic violence. Rice will miss the season opener against AFC North champion Cincinnati on Sept. 7 and the Sept. 11 game on Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Rice was arrested following an altercation in which he allegedly struck then-fiancee Janay Palmer.


EDMOND, Okla. (AP) -- The threat of being cut hasn't served as a deterrent for suspended Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon. He was arrested in the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond on a complaint of marijuana possession.

Police spokeswoman Jenny Monroe says an officer detected a "heavy smell of marijuana" coming from the car, and that Blackmon admitted he had smoked "a blunt" while driving and had another in his vehicle.

Blackmon is suspended without pay indefinitely for repeated violations of the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Owner Shad Khan says Blackmon will remain on the roster despite his latest arrest.


CANTON, Ohio (AP) -- Former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, who is recovering from cancer treatments, will participate in the coin toss at the Hall of Fame game on Aug. 3. The Hall of Famer will represent Buffalo as an honorary captain, while former linebacker Harry Carson will be the New York Giants' honorary captain when the teams face off in the first NFL preseason game.

Kelly, inducted into the hall in 2002, completed radiation and chemotherapy sessions in May to treat sinus cancer, which spread from his jaw.


UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -- The New York Islanders have agreed to a one-year contract with goalie Kevin Poulin. He appeared in 28 games last season with the Islanders and posted an 11-16-1 record, with a .891 save percentage and a 3.29 goals-against-average. In 49 career games with the Islanders, Poulin has an 18-25-2 record with a 3.08 GAA and .900 save percentage. He was selected by the Islanders in the fifth round of the 2008 draft.


MONTREAL (AP) -- The Montreal Canadiens avoided arbitration with center Lars Eller, agreeing to a four-year contract. Eller was scheduled to have an arbitration hearing on Friday.

Eller wrote on Twitter that he's pleased to be a part of the Canadiens for four more years.


AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Two University of Texas football players have been arrested and charged with felony sexual assault after a female student said she was raped in a campus dorm room last month. Wide receivers Kendall Sanders and Montrel Meander were in custody at the university police station. According to an arrest affidavit, Sanders and Meander texted each other during earlier interviews with police to "get their story straight." Sanders also faces a charge of improper photography tied to the alleged assault on June 21.

First-year Longhorns coach Charlie Strong, who will welcome his team to preseason training camp in two weeks, said he had suspended both players.


ARGELES-GAZOST, France (AP) -- Italy's Vincenzo Nibali has seemingly all but wrapped up the Tour de France with his win in the 90-mile 18th stage. Barring a disastrous finish, Nibali will probably be wearing the yellow jersey, symbolic of being the overall race leader, on Sunday in Paris when the three-week competition comes to an end.

His victory essentially turned the race into a competition for second as he has a lead of more than seven minutes.


MONTREAL (AP) -- Newly crowned British Open winner Rory McIlroy is skipping this week's Canadian Open in Montreal. The defending champion, Brandt Snedeker, is on hand for the event along with two-time winner Jim Furyk (FYOOR'-ihk), Dustin Johnson and Matt Kuchar (KOO'-chur).

The clubhouse leader during the first round is Kyle Stanley who shot an opening round 5-under-65. Six players are in the clubhouse at 4-under.

On tap next week is the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio.
