The San Francisco Giants on Wednesday became the first team since 1986 to win a protest filed with Major League Baseball, and will now get to resume a rain-shortened game the Chicago Cubs thought they had won. MLB executive Joe Torre ruled on Tuesday night's game at Wrigley Field that was called after 4 1-2 innings. The Cubs were declared the winners by a 2-0 score. The playoff-contending Giants and Chicago have a regularly scheduled game set to begin three hours later.

Brian Hoyer defied long odds - and stiff-armed Johnny Football - to keep his dream job. Through sweat and tears, he fought his way back from a serious knee injury only to be faced with the Browns drafting Johnny Manziel, college football's dynamic quarterback with the cult-like following. He endured grueling rehab to get back on the field sooner than expected, stayed focused as Manzielmania consumed the Browns, and ignored trade rumors. It will be Hoyer who will lead the Browns, his hometown team, onto the field for the Sept. 7 opener against the archrival Pittsburgh Steelers.

Garrett Richards lay on the ground for several minutes, his left knee damaged and his season seemingly over. The right-hander's injury while running to cover first base is a big loss that overshadowed the Los Angeles Angels' seventh win in eight games. ''Winning the game, obviously, it's always important, but it's secondary to what happened,'' Angels manager Mike Scioscia said after an 8-3 win over the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night. He will be re-evaluated in Los Angeles on Thursday.


Jim Kelly's follow-up exam shows no sign of cancer (Yahoo Sports)

Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly received encouraging news in his battle with cancer. An initial physical exam showed no evidence of sinus cancer three months after the former Buffalo Bills quarterback completed radiation and chemotherapy treatments, Dr. Peter Costantino said in a release issued by New York City's Lenox Hill Hospital on Wednesday. ''The treatments have so far completely eliminated Mr. Kelly's pain, and his level of function has essentially returned to normal,'' said Costantino, who heads the hospital's head and neck institute. The cancer then spread to his sinus in March.

Pittsburgh Steelers running backs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount will be charged with marijuana possession following a traffic stop Wednesday afternoon. Ross Township detective Brian Kohlhepp said traffic officer Sean Stafiej pulled over a Camaro operated by Bell around 1:30 p.m. after Stafiej, who was on a motorcycle, noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. Bell, Blount and a female passenger all claimed ownership of the marijuana according to police. Bell, 22, was taken to a hospital to have blood drawn and is expected to be charged with driving under the influence of marijuana.
