    Oakland Raiders cornerback Sean Smith faces assault charge

    Los Angeles prosecutors say Oakland Raiders cornerback Sean Smith has been charged with beating his sister's boyfriend last month. The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said Thursday that Smith faces assault and battery charges. They say the 30-year-old Smith beat the victim and then stomped on the man's head in Pasadena on July 4. Smith previously played for the Miami Dolphins and the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Stanton’s home run streak halted, but says goal is to surpass 61

    Giancarlo Stanton didn’t homer in eight consecutive games like his manager Don Mattingly did 30 years ago. Stanton’s streak ended a couple of games short of the major-league record Wednesday afternoon in an 8-1 Marlins win over the Giants. Stanton is still on pace to challenge some of baseball’s most prestigious home run marks - including a number he feels to be the most meaningful home run record. “When you grow up watching all the old films of Babe Ruth and [Mickey] Mantle and those guys, 61 has always been that printed number as a kid,” Stanton said. Stanton, who has a career-best 44 home runs this season, is on pace to hit 60 this season, which would match the total Babe Ruth hit in 1927
