Holingsworth granted a defense attorney's motion to consider Martin's theft conviction as his second, not third, strike.

The sport's winningest duo played together for more than a decade and 184 opens before Stoklos initiated the breakup earlier this season.

Bruce Keidan of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette would like to get rid of all team nicknames and start over: "When is the last time you saw a panther, except in a zoo? What is a Buckeye? A Hawkeye?
