Ryan Braun watched in frustration as Chicago Cubs All-Star Ted Lilly stymied his Milwaukee Brewers, then let his pitchers know how he felt about their recent performance. "Their starting pitching is a lot better than ours," Braun said after the Brewers were beaten, 8-2, Sunday. "They threw the ball a lot better than our starters did. They certainly swung the bats better than we did. Clearly they were the better team.

News of Ryan Braun's suspension from baseball hit at an interesting time for the Angels - the day after they faced Bartolo Colon . Like Braun, Colon tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug last season. Braun successfully appealed his case; Colon served a 50-game suspension, then negotiated a new contract with the Oakland Athletics. Now Colon, 40, reportedly is being investigated by Major League Baseball because he has been linked to the same Biogenesis laboratory in Miami that ultimately sank Braun.

In an attempt to win young fans, the 2014 Sochi Games will feature an expanded schedule, setting an Olympic record for the number of competitions. The event's organizing committee has released a schedule that features seven different sports to be contested over 17 days beginning on Feb. 7. Eighty-five countries are expected to bring 6,000 athletes to the Russian resort city. They will compete in 98 events, about two-thirds of which will be held in the nearby mountains. That makes Sochi significantly more expansive than the 2010 Vancouver Games and previous Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, and Salt Lake City.

Mark Trumbo's workout got cut short Friday morning when the Angels infielder took a bad-hop ground ball to the nose. Though the impact caused quite a bit of bleeding, Trumbo's injury is not believed to be serious. "I was on my 30th repetition, turning double plays; the ball hit the lip [where the grass meets the dirt], shot up and got me in the nose," said Trumbo, a first baseman who is trying to make the transition to third base this season. "But I'm not going for X-rays, and the doctor said it's not broken.

  Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson broke his right ankle Wednesday night when New York's Eric Young Jr. stepped on his ankle while Hudson was covering first base during Atlanta's 8-2 victory. "We won, but it's a tough night," catcher Brian McCann said. Hudson, 38, ran to first after Young hit a grounder to Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman in the eighth inning. Hudson took Freeman's toss at the bag just before Young arrived. Young stepped on the back of Hudson's right ankle, snapping his leg in a scene reminiscent of Joe Thiesmann's infamous "Monday Night Football" injury.

MILWAUKEE -- Ryan Braun is not scoreboard watching -- yet. He does know, however, exactly where the Milwaukee Brewers are in the National League Central standings: tied for first place with the Chicago Cubs. Braun homered and drove in four runs, Bill Hall hit a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning and the Brewers earned a share of the division lead with a 6-4 victory over the Houston Astros on Saturday night. "It really is pretty incredible to make up five games this quickly," Braun said, alluding to the five-game lead the Cubs had over the Brewers at the All-Star break, only nine games ago. Eric Gagne (4-2)

The Texas Rangers acquired pitcher Matt Garza from the Chicago Cubs for rookie right-hander Justin Grimm, top prospect third baseman Mike Olt and Class-A pitcher C.J. Edwards. “He's an extremely talented pitcher that's had success in the toughest of divisions and the biggest of stages, who's throwing the ball as well as anybody right now,” Rangers General Manager Jon Daniels said in a statement released by the team. “It's a power repertoire, a little bit of a different look from what we've got, and he was available.

It appears some Milwaukee Brewers staff are a little sensitive about star outfielder Ryan Braun accepting a 65-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball's drug policy. A Brewers fan says she was asked to leave Miller Park on Wednesday night after she modified the name "Braun" on the back of her Brewers shirt to "Fraud. " Karen Eidem says a security guard told her the modified shirt violated the team's fan code of conduct. She only was allowed to stay after she agreed to wear the shirt inside out. The Brewers later said in statement that security staff should not have asked Eidem to leave the game and offered her a ticket to another game, according to WTMJ-AM in Milwaukee.

All of us who enjoy watching South Carolina super-stud Jadeveon Clowney play (and plow) are relieved to know his season is not going to be derailed for illegal targeting by some rapper. Clowney is, knuckles down, the nation's best defensive player and a key cog in South Carolina's BCS hopes this season. There were concerns the defensive end might have broken NCAA rules by talking to superstar rapper Jay-Z, who now fancies himself a sports agent looking to represent future No. 1 overall choices in the NFL draft.

Boston pitcher Ryan Dempster is nothing if not persistent, taking more than one attempt before giving Red Sox fans what they apparently wanted to see Sunday -- controversial New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez getting nailed by a pitch. Rodriguez, who is allowed to keep playing while appealing a 211-game suspension by Major League Baseball in the Biogenesis drug case, was booed by the crowd at Fenway Park all night, starting with his initial appearance in the on-deck circle during the first inning.
