UNDATED (AP) -- The American League Divisional playoff series begin today with a day game in Toronto and night game in Kansas City. In the opener, the Jays are sending 18-game winner David Price to the mound against Yovani Gallardo (gy-YAR'-doh) of the Rangers. This is the first post-season game in Toronto since Game 7 of the World Series the year when Joe Carter won the game and the series with a walk-off home run. The Jays won the AL East title this year while the Rangers clinched the West.

In Kansas City, the Central Division champion Royals are entertaining the wild card-winning Astros. Houston advanced with that 3-0 wild card game win Tuesday night over the Yankees in New York. The pitching matchup for the opening game of the best-of-five series has 19-game winner Collin McHugh toeing the rubber for the Astros against Yordano Ventura, who was 13-8.

Play in the National League Divisional series playoffs begins tomorrow with the Cardinals entertaining the Cubs, and the Dodgers, the Mets.


HOUSTON (AP) -- The big pre-game question surrounding tonight's NFL game between the Colts and Texans is will Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck be able to play. He missed his first start as a pro last week with an injured right shoulder and wasn't able to do much earlier in the week as the team got ready for the trip to Houston. Luck said on Tuesday that he expected to be able to play tonight. If he can't go, 40-year-old Matt Hasselbeck probably would, but he's been sick this week.

The Colts have dominated the AFC South with nine division titles since 2002 and a 15-game winning streak against division foes. The streak actually began with a Colts victory over Houston in the 2012 season finale

The Texans benched quarterback Brian Hoyer in favor of Ryan Mallett after Week 1, but Mallett was back on the bench late in Houston's blowout loss to Atlanta on Sunday. Despite his struggles, Mallett will start this evening's game.


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- In college football this evening, 17th-ranked Southern Cal is home to Washington. The Trojans are 3-1 on the season while the visiting Huskies are 2-2. USC has dominated the series winning 51 games against 28 defeats and four ties.

The key matchup in the game features Washington cornerback Kevin King against USC quarterback Cody Kessler. King has three interceptions as a key contributor to the Huskies' solid defense, which is giving up only 321 yards per game. Kessler is in the midst of his second straight outstanding season with 15 TD passes and one interception.


UNDATED (AP) -- Connor McDavid was the first pick in the 2015 NHL draft by the Edmonton Oilers. The 18-year old makes his professional debut this evening as the Oilers face off with the Blues in St. Louis. McDavid is a 6'1" center who led the Ontario Hockey League in playoff scoring last season. He was named the Most Valuable Player in the OHL playoffs and set a franchise record for most points in a single playoff series.

The rest of tonight's card has Winnipeg playing the Bruins in Boston, Buffalo home to the Senators, the Flyers at Tampa Bay, Nashville home to the Hurricanes, Pittsburgh at Dallas and the Avalanche home to the Wild.


INCHEON, South Korea (AP) -- The first day of the Presidents Cup, being contested in South Korea, has been completed and the U.S. leads the International team 4-1 after foursomes.

The International team was adamant that the number of matches be reduced, and it was from 34 to 30, to keep it a close contest. After one day, maybe having one less match on Thursday helped.

The Americans, who have lost the Presidents Cup only one time since it began in 1994 and are going for their sixth straight victory, had a lead after the opening session for the fifth straight time. The margin was their largest since a four-point lead in 2007 at Royal Montreal.
