Leary Wants Trade From Cowboys PDF Print E-mail

DFW_5523-1FRISCO, Texas -- Guard Ronald Leary remains hopeful that he will traded before the start of the season.

As of now, he is still the odd man out of the Dallas Cowboys' offensive line unit after being supplanted by La'el Collins last year.

Leary started 31 of 32 games at left guard in 2013-2014 and believes he is a legit NFL starter. He will miss Thursday's preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks (10 p.m. ET). But he says that shouldn't affect his trade value.

"I think every team knows what I can do by now," Leary said. "I've been playing for a while now, so not playing in a preseason game isn't going to have teams wondering what I can do."

Leary, who sat out voluntary team activities in the off-season after demanding a trade, has kept a positive attitude for the most part in training camp and the preseason. He is under contract for $2.553 million after signing his restricted free agent tender before the draft.

"I've been cool. I just focus on me," Leary said. "It's only so much you can control and I just control what I can control and that's playing football. All the trade talks that have been going on for a while now. We'll see if something happens. But I'm always going to stay positive. I'm not going to get down because I'm a real confident guy in my game and everything. I want to start. I know I'm a starter in the league, I've said it plenty of times and other people have said it, so it's true. It's not just me talking.

"I hope so. I just pray about it and let it go. I can't sit there and wrack my mind about it every day, it'll drive you crazy. You end up being miserable, and I'm not going to let that happen."

DFW_6344-1CINCINNATI -- A handful of Billy Hamilton's finest defensive plays have been to the benefit of right-hander Dan Straily. Following his latest gem on Straily's behalf, Hamilton said he is expecting, at minimum, a restaurant gift card.

But, Straily believes Hamilton's just reward is coming. "He'll get a Gold Glove out of it," he said.

Hamilton's sensational diving catch to begin the sixth inning helped Straily complete six shutout frames, and Joey Votto continued his torrid pace at the plate, going 2-for-3 with two RBIs, lifting the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-0 victory over the first-place Texas Rangers on Tuesday to open a two-game interleague series at Great American Ball Park.

Texas, which managed only five hits, now leads the surging Seattle Mariners by five games in the American League West.

Tuesday's game was scoreless when Carlos Beltran led off the sixth with a deep drive to left-center. With left fielder Adam Duvall playing Beltran to pull, Hamilton was the only outfielder with a chance. Reaching peak speed at approximately 22 mph, Hamilton dove and made the catch before landing chest first on the warning track.

"I feel that was one of the best ones (I've made)," Hamilton said. "In the position I was playing in ... I had to go a long way. It was a day-saver."

Straily has seen the spectacular from Hamilton before. But even he was

Bryant Out With Concussion PDF Print E-mail

DFW_5629-1Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant will not play against the Seattle Seahawks this week due to a concussion.

Bryant a concussion in Monday's practice and will not play Thursday. He's unlikely to play in the preseason finale next week, as per team custom, meaning he would not suit up until Sept. 11 against the New York Giants.

Bryant has four catches for 74 yards and two touchdowns in the first two preseason games in his comeback from offseason foot surgery. Bryant played only nine games last season after signing a five-year, $70 million deal on July 15.

His poor production was in part a byproduct of a revolving door at quarterback. Bryant recorded a career-low 31 receptions for 401 yards and three touchdowns in 2015.

While Bryant won't be on the field, the Cowboys do expect rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott to make his preseason debut. He's been out with a hamstring injury and Darren McFadden, the veteran many expected to share the load with Elliott, has missed 10 weeks with a broken elbow.

rangers logoST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Logan Forsythe was happy to get back in the starting lineup after missing the past four games, and the Tampa Bay Rays were happy to get his bat back.

Forsythe hit a three-run homer to cap a five-run fourth inning for the Rays in their 8-4 win against the Texas Rangers at Tropicana Field on Sunday.

Tampa Bay (52-70) took two of three games from the AL West leaders.

"Great series, from the way it started to the way it finished, that was an outstanding effort by our guys," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "We pitched well, made some big pitches. Really liked some of the little things we did."

The Rays trailed 2-1 going into the bottom of the fourth when second baseman Tim Beckham hit a double down the right-field line. Right fielder Steven Souza Jr. and left fielder Corey Dickerson followed with singles and Beckham scored to tie the game. Catcher Bobby Wilson executed a perfect bunt on a squeeze play that scored Souza Jr. to give the Rays a 3-2 lead.

Forsythe, who was dealing with back spasms last week, came up with two runners on and sent a 2-1 offering from Rangers starter Martin Perez over the wall in left-center.

"I was a little tight in that first at-bat but after that I felt like I let some swings go a little bit," Forsythe said. "After that it felt good. I was happy to help the team out and hopefully I'm in there and ready to go every day from here on out."

The Rangers (73-52) cut the lead in half with a solo home run from

rangers logoST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Jake Odorizzi continues to be one of the best pitchers in the majors since the All-Star break and he got a big boost from the Tampa Bay Rays' offense.

Odorizzi (8-5) won his fifth consecutive decision since the break while Evan Longoria went 2-for-3 with a home run and Brad Miller had a three-run double to lift the Rays to an 8-2 win over the Texas Rangers at Tropicana Field on Saturday.

Texas (73-51) had a four-game win streak snapped. Tampa Bay improved to 51-70.

"Great comeback win," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "(Odorizzi) pitched well while the game was close and our offense was able to open things up in the later innings. Guys played with a lot of energy, we ran the bases better today."

Miller's double in the bottom of the seventh inning off Rangers reliever Keone Kela gave the Rays a 7-1 lead. The big inning started with a triple from second baseman Tim Beckham, who scored on a single by right fielder Steven Souza Jr.

After catcher Luke Maile reached base on a bunt single and

FC Dallas Lose At Real Salt Lake PDF Print E-mail

DGD08131635_SportingKC_at_FCDallasDefender Jamison Olave scored late in the second half to break a scoreless deadlock and Real Salt Lake made the goal hold up in a 1-0 victory over FC Dallas on Saturday night.

It was just the second win in six home matches for Real Salt Lake (11-8-7) over FC Dallas since 2012. The win moved Real into third place in the Western Conference behind Dallas and Colorado.

FC Dallas (13-7-6) had a tough time getting anything going offensively against Real's defense, which held the Western Conference leaders without a shot on goal before halftime.

Real Salt Lake had an equally tough time generating offense until Olave provided unlikely heroics, scoring just his second goal of the season in the 78th minute.

After Dallas goalkeeper Chris Seitz saved a shot by forward Joao Plata to set up a corner kick, midfielder Javier Morales took the ball and served it into the 6-yard box. The ball deflected up top to Olave and, after settling it, blasted the ball down the middle and threaded it under the bar.

Maxi Urruti created Dallas' best scoring chance earlier in the 54th minute. He dribbled into the top of the box and threaded the ball between two Real Salt Lake defenders. Urruti's shot headed for the right post where goalkeeper Nick Rimando parried it away to keep Dallas off the board.

dak by shaneDallas rookie quarterback Dak Prescott accounted for four touchdowns, continuing his impressive preseason and leading the Cowboys to a 41-14 victory over the visiting Miami Dolphins on Friday.

Prescott threw touchdown passes to Dez Bryant and Brice Butler and scored on runs of 20 and 1-yard. He finished 12 of 15 for 199 yards with the two touchdowns and no interceptions.

Tony Romo started and led a six-play, 72-yard scoring drive, capped by Alfred Morris' 15-yard cut-back touchdown run that gave Dallas an early 7-0 lead. Romo completed 4 of 5 passes for 49 yards, before giving way to Prescott late in the first quarter.

In his first two preseason games, Prescott has gone 22 of 27 for 338 yards and four touchdowns for the Cowboys (1-1).

Dallas' dominant offensive line paved the way for a 170-yard ground attack and did not allow a sack. Morris finished with 85 yards rushing on 13 carries.

Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw a pair of touchdowns to Kenny Stills and completed 12 of 20 passes for 162 yards. But the Dolphins' backups couldn't put any points on the board. Twice, Miami (1-1) failed to convert on fourth-down tries inside the Dallas 10-yard line.

Running back Arian Foster made his debut with the Dolphins. The veteran, who is trying to come back from injury, had two carries for minus-5 yards.

Stills had 71 yards receiving, including touchdown catches of 13 and 3 yards.
