Rangers beat Flyers 4-1 in Game 3, take 2-1 lead
By Dan Gelston/AP

Derek Stepan, Martin St. Louis, Dan Girardi and Dan Carcillo scored goals, leading the New York Rangers to a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 3 on Tuesday night.

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 31 shots to give the Rangers a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. Game 4 is Friday in Philadelphia.

Lundqvist was backed by a defense that delivered with a flurry of blocked shots to stymie the Flyers. The Rangers took an early 2-0 lead and that was enough of a cushion for a team that led the Eastern Conference with 25 road victories.

Mark Streit scored for the Flyers.

Ray Emery struggled in net in his third straight start of the postseason for Steve Mason, and was lifted late in the third period.

By Associated Press

Domonic Brown doubled home the go-ahead run in the 10th inning after a costly error by left fielder Carl Crawford, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Carlos Ruiz reached second base when his flyball to short left field glanced off Crawford's glove as shortstop Hanley Ramirez nearly collided with the left fielder. Brown followed with a drive to the fence in left-center on a 1-1 pitch from J.P. Howell (1-2).

Antonio Bastardo (3-1) pitched a scoreless inning for the victory and Jonathan Papelbon got three outs for his sixth save, putting him within eight of 300.

St. Mark's baseball edges Salesianum
By Sean Greene

VIDEO: Highlights and reaction to St. Mark's victory
St. Mark's Tom Spagnolo allowed one run in 5 innings of work as the Spartans held on for a 3-2 victory over rival Salesianum at Frawley Stadium Tuesday night.

The first of two meetings at the home of the Blue Rocks this season was tight throughout, as Spagnolo dueled Joe Coyle on the mound.

Spagnolo struck out 5 of the first 7 batters he faced, including all three in the second inning.

St. Mark's offense rewarded him with a pair of runs in the bottom of the frame on Calvin Scott's bases-loaded single to left field which brought in Ethan Brancato and David Gibb with the game's first runs.

Salesianum picked up a run in the 3rd when Matt Taylor scored on a passed ball after he singled earlier in the inning.

The game remained 2-1 into the bottom of the 5th when the teams traded runs in their consecutive at-bats.

St. Mark's jumped ahead 3-1 after a Salesianum throwing error allowed Dominic Sabatino to score with two outs in the inning. Salesianum's Kyle Hinton cut the deficit back in half with a 2-out double in the 6th off of reliever Billy Phillips.

Phillips stuck out 2 Sals in a perfect 7th to wrap up the save for St. Mark's.

Spagnolo ended up allowing one run on two hits with 9 strikeouts in his 5 innings of work.

Joe Coyle picked up the loss, despite battling through 5 innings of 3-run baseball (2 earned), he forced 3 strikeouts on the evening.

The teams are scheduled to play again at Frawley Stadium on May 7.

DeLeon helps Sussex Tech pitch past Newark
By Sean Greene

VIDEO: Highlights and reaction to Sussex Tech's victory
Sussex Tech's Lane DeLeon tossed three perfect innings while the Ravens scored four runs in the 3rd inning on their way to a 6-2 baseball victory at Newark Tuesday afternoon.

DeLeon struck out two Yellowjackets in each of his three innings of work before being lifted going into the 4th inning.

That decision became easier as the Ravens offense came alive in the 3rd. Already up 1-0 the Ravens strung together four straight singles to lead off the frame, with Colin Bergh and Derek Magee each driving in single runs. Both then scored on Wyatt Richardson's 2-run single to cap off the big inning.

Anthony Guinta added one last insurance run with an RBI double in the 6th. He reached base all 4 times while driving in two runs.

Sussex Tech's offense had 15 hits, 13 singles, on their way to their 7th victory of the season.

Kole Hearn followed DeLeon onto the mound, and he allowed two hits in three shutout innings of relief for the Ravens.

Newark's (5-4) Chase Houck broke up the shutout with 2 outs in the 7th with a double down the left field line, but Noah Jones then forced an out at second to end the game.

Ravens again put LB McClain on retired list
By Associated Press

The Baltimore Ravens have put middle linebacker Rolando McClain on the reserve-retired list for a second time.

McClain retired last year, but recently announced his intent to return to the NFL. After being reinstated by the Ravens last week, McClain abruptly said he was retiring for good.

The 6-foot-4, 250-pound McClain signed a one-year contract with Baltimore last year but never played a down with the Ravens, retiring after his arrest for disorderly conduct in Alabama.

By putting McClain on the reserve-retired list, the Ravens retain his rights if he should again change his mind.

McClain was the Oakland Raiders' first-round pick in 2010 after starring at Alabama. In three seasons with Oakland, McClain had 246 tackles and 61/2 sacks.
