Anquan Boldin Foundation Gives Back

WEST PALM BEACH (WPEC) -  Today we had another great example of our local professional athletes continuing to give back to the community.

75 kids from Butler family large day care in Pahokee were invited to Wal-Mart in West Palm Beach for the Anquan Boldin Foundation's holiday shopping event.

The kids, aged 3-12 were given a 100 dollar gift card from Boldin, the former Pahokee star wide receiver who now plays for the Baltimore Ravens. Anquan's mother says her son just loves giving back.Anquan Boldin Foundation Gives Back

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Albert Pujols (POO'-hohlz) hit a two-run drive to make him one of four players with 10 career 35-homer seasons, and the Los Angeles Angels jumped on AL ERA leader Sonny Gray from the start to beat the Oakland Athletics 9-4. Pujols hit his 555th career and joined Hall of Famers Willie Mays and Mike Schmidt and Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez to have reached 35 home runs in 10 or more years.

In other major league action:

-- The New York Yankees erupted with eight runs in the second inning to clobber Boston 13-8 to take two of three from the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Carlos Beltran swatted a two-run homer, his 14th of the year. That was one of three homers the Yankees hit in the second inning. All in all, the Yanks hit five homers.

-- Joey Votto (VAH'-tohz)'s two-out, three-run homer in the top of the ninth inning gave Cincinnati a 7-4 win over the Cubs. Votto came through right after Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant let a grounder get through his legs for an error. Bryant had tied the game in the bottom of the eighth inning with a two-run homer.

-- Marcell Ozuna hit a two-run homer to help Miami beat the reeling Braves 7-3. Martin (mar-TEEN') Prado and Jeff Mathis added two RBIs each to help send Atlanta to its eighth straight home loss. That hasn't happened since 1988.

San Francisco and Los Angeles wrap up their three-game series in LA tonight. The home team won the first two games of the series to take a 5 1/2-game lead over the Giants in the National League West. Tonight's pitching matchup has Clayton Kershaw going for the Dodgers against Mike Leake.

The Giants and Dodgers meet one more time this year, in the last week of the regular season Sept. 28-30 in San Francisco.

MLB-NEWS

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Stephen Strasburg won't make his next scheduled start for the Washington Nationals on Friday. Strasburg was limited to four innings by upper back tightness his last outing.

In other baseball news:

---- The NL East-leading New York Mets confirmed that starter Noah Syndergaard will be skipped this weekend in Miami when fellow rookie Steven Matz returns from injury. Mets manager Terry Collins also acknowledged ace Matt Harvey will likely be passed over once more in his first season back from Tommy John surgery.

----The Pittsburgh Pirates have selected the contract Pedro Florimon from the minors, bringing the infielder back for another tour in the big leagues this season. Florimon hit .105 with no homers and an RBI in 15 games in Pittsburgh. He was outrighted Aug. 25 to Triple-A Indianapolis, playing three games.

US OPEN

NEW YORK (AP) -- Top seed Serena Williams is into the third round of the U.S. Open but it was hardly a masterpiece.

The defending champ bested Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 7-6, 6-3, overcoming 10 double faults and two dozen other unforced errors.

Williams is looking to become the first player since Steffi Graf (grahf) in 1988 to win all four majors in one year.

Defending men's champ Marin Cilic (CHIHL'-ihch) is through to the third round. The ninth-seed advanced with 6-2, 6-4, 7-5 win over Russia's Evgeny Donskoy.

The career of Mardy Fish is over. The 33-year old American, who was once at top-10 player, was ousted in the second round in a five-set, 3 hour and 11 minute match against Feliciano Lopez.

American Madison Keys has reached the third round at the U.S. Open for the first time, beating Tereza Smitkova 6-1, 6-2. The 19th seed has now advanced to at least the third round at every major this year.

Top men's seed Novak Djokovic (NOH'-vak JOH'-kuh-vich) is playing his second round match as part of the night session.

NFL-TRANSACTIONS

UNDATED (AP) -- The Carolina Panthers have signed backup quarterback Derek Anderson to a two-year contract extension. The move keeps him with the team through the 2017 season and provides depth and experience behind Cam Newton. Anderson joined Carolina as a free agent in 2011 but didn't see much action his first three seasons. He started two games last season against Tampa Bay and won both, helping the Panthers win their second straight NFC South title.

-- The New York Giants have re-signed place-kicker Chris Boswell. New York made the move because veteran Josh Brown bruised his leg two weeks ago when he made a tackle against Jacksonville. Boswell was in the Giants' training camp until being waived on Aug. 16.

--Former San Francisco 49ers owner Edward DeBartolo (deh-BART'-loh) Jr. is a finalist for the 2016 class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a contributor. DeBartolo was nominated by the nine-member contributors committee. Elections will be held on Feb. 6, the night before the Super Bowl. DeBartolo, 68, must receive 80 percent of the ballots to be elected to the Hall of Fame.

-- Lance Briggs, a seven-time Pro Bowl linebacker who helped the Chicago Bears reach the Super Bowl, plans to retire. Briggs had 16 interceptions, 15 sacks and five touchdowns in his career. But after missing just four games from 2003 to 2012, Briggs struggled to stay healthy the past two seasons.
