LOS ANGELES — Clayton Kershaw put his previous flop behind him and pushed the Los Angeles Dodgers forward — one victory from a return trip to the World Series. With so much at stake, the three-time Cy Young Award winner bounced back from one of his worst postseason starts with one of his best, pitching the Dodgers past the Milwaukee Brewers 5-2 Wednesday for a 3-2 lead in the NL Championship Series. “I don’t really think about the one before. And after this one I’m not going to think about this one, either,” Kershaw said. Max Muncy hit a go-ahead single in the sixth inning for the defending NL champs. Kershaw held the lead, scoring an insurance run in the seventh and then exiting. Roughed up in the NLCS opener, Kershaw mixed his fastball and slider on a hot day to shut down the Brewers. The Dodgers ace didn’t allow a baserunner past the third inning. “He just has a knack,” Brewers star Christian Yelich said. “He has the … [Read more...] about Kershaw dominant, Dodgers beat Brewers 5-2, lead NLCS 3-2

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — This might be the end of that Captain America business. If it wasn’t his finger-pointing interview after the Ryder Cup in France, a few swipes of sand in the Bahamas should make it a little more clear.

Reed is the kind of player who wants the ball for the final shot. The other Americans on this Presidents Cup team like that about him.His post-match rant at the Ryder Cup was troublesome because he was quick to assign fault with the U.S. captain Jim Furyk for sitting him and Jordan Spieth for breaking up their partnership, without recognizing he couldn’t find the fairway at Le Golf National during a fourballs match with Tiger Woods. More difficult … [Read more...] about Ferguson: Patrick Reed becoming known for more than “Captain America”
This story was originally published in the December 12 edition of CNN's Meanwhile in America, the daily email about US politics for global readers. Sign up here to receive it every weekday morning. (CNN)If today were Election Day in the US, rival candidates would be blasting out hours-long TV and radio blitzes to drive every last vote to the polls in key battlegrounds. But this Thursday, after the most bitter election campaign in decades, a spectral silence will cloak the British isles -- at least until 10 p.m., when voting ends. Britain imposes an election day broadcasting blackout on political coverage that might influence voters. Such regulations seem archaic in a social media age, but the UK is not alone: In Australia, political advertising is banned for several days before the polls open. There's no campaigning once voting starts in the Philippines. And in Canada, journalists must not broadcast or print details about opinion polls on election day. As if to compensate, … [Read more...] about Speech or silence: Which serves democracy best on Election Day?
