What Did You Miss Wednesday?

--David Price went six strong innings as the Boston Red Sox took a 2-0 lead in the World Series with a 4-2 lead.  JD Martinez's two run single in the 5th gave Boston a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Game 3 is in Los Angeles Friday. 

--Riders head coach Chris Jones had kind words for Wally Buono as he prepares to make his final regular-season visit to Regina on Saturday. “I work out basically before the game now because I was in Montreal and I saw Wally getting a workout before the game,” said Jones who started his CFL coaching career with the Als in 2002 while Buono was guiding the Stampeders.  “I didn’t ask him why he did it, but I thought, ‘Hell, if he’s doing it, I should do it.’ It’s something that I’ve kind of copied from him. When asked what Buono's legacy is, Jones smirked and responded with "It's pretty clear. You win as many games as he did, it didn't matter what hand he was dealt, he ended up winning games. I think that's the mark of a great coach."

--Rams coach Steve Bryce says Noah Picton may be a spectator in what will be his final game as a Regina Ram on Friday versus the U of S Huskies.  Picton is still being bothered by septic arthritis which can become much more dangerous if not treated properly.  Bryce says Picton has not been given medical clearance yet despite the fact he desperately wants to play in the last game of not only the Rams season but his university career. 

--The Leafs jumped out to a 3-0 lead before holding on to beat Winnipeg 4-2 in NHL play Wednesday.  Nikita Kucherov had the only goal of the game in Denver as the Lightning beat the Avalanche 1-0.

--Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden did his best Wednesday to pour cold water on rampant rumors surrounding further roster dismantling. Gruden said he wouldn't "speculate" on deals being made in advance of next Tuesday's trade deadline, according to Vic Tafur of The Athletic, but added, "I certainly don't see us trading the quarterback (Derek Carr)." Carr, a fifth-year pro and three-time Pro Bowler, has a career-high 71.7 percent completion rate through six games but has thrown eight interceptions with just seven touchdowns.
