THE HEADLINES:

-- Kamloops Blazers have sent all but one of their 15 year old prospects home, as they got down to 32 players from  42 after last night's Blue-White game. Signed defenceman Nolan Kneen was the only one of 7 under-age players to stay and, will likely suit up in Friday's first pre-season game against Vancouver, at the I-S-C.  Four 16 year olds heading home to play midget hockey were Phillip Knies to Colorado by way of Phoenix, Garrett Pilon to Saskatoon, Adam Tisdale to Cochrane, Alta, and, Jordan Deyrmenjian to Vancouver.   The Whites beat the Blues 1-0 in overtime last night as Matt Revel found Cole Ully going to the net with 25 seconds left in overtime.  Goaltending of Bolton Pouliot and, Dylan Ferguson was sensational at times, as the Whites held a  49-38 edge in shots.  Cole Kehler and, Connor Ingram shared the shutout. And all four goalies are with the club for the time being.

-- The WHL exhibition season got underway  with Tyler Steenbergen scoring the winner in overtime as Swift Current beat Moose Jaw 4-3.

-- Portland Winterhawks have signed their first round pick from the WHL bantam draft, 15 year old Cody Glass of Winnipeg. They acquired the pick from Calgary as the Hitmen gave it up to acquire the rights to Adam Tambellini who left U.S. College Hockey to come to the league.

--  Jose Bautista's 25th home run of the season sent the Blue Jays into extra innings for the fourth straight game, but Boston used a seven-run 11th inning to beat Toronto 11-7. Mike Napoli belted a three-run homer and Allen Craig added a two-run shot for the Red Sox.   The Blue Jays fell 10 games behind Baltimore in the division, and, 6 1/2 behind Seattle for a wild card playoff spot.  The Mariners shutout Texas 5--0  while, the Orioles doubled Tampa Bay 4-2. Seattle rewarded GM Jack Zduriencik with a multi-year contract extension with the M's challenging for their first playoff spot in 13 years.

-- Detroit stayed a half game behind the M's in the wild card race by beating the Yankees 5-2 as Rick Porcello became the majors 6th 15 game winner.  KC stayed a half game ahead of the Tigers in the A-L Central by beating Minnesota 2-1.  Johnny Cueto failed in his bid  to become the majors' first 16-game winner in Cincinatti's 3-0 loss to the Cubs.

-- Five-time champion  Roger Federer and, two-time defending women's champ Serena Williams won their first-round matches at the U.S. Open.  The story of the second day was 15 year old American C.C. Bellis upsetting #12 seed  Dominika Cibulkova in becoming the youngest player to win a U.S. Open match since 1996.  7th seed Eugenie Bouchard won her first round match as well.

-- Anthony Davis scored 18 points  leading the U.S. to a 101-71 victory over Slovenia in its final exhibition game before the FIBA World Cup of Basketball. The Americans now head to Spain for their tournament opener Saturday against Finland.

-- Kevin Love says Cleveland fans shouldn't worry about the opt-out clause in his contract. The impact forward can become a free agent next summer but says he intends to stay with LeBron James and the team.  Love never made the playoffs in six seasons with Minnesota

--  Olympic gold medallist Donovan Bailey has lost his driving privileges for a year and fined $15-hundred dollars after pleading guilty to drunk driving.  Bailey failed a breathalyzer in the incident in March of 2012.

-- Philippine boxing icon Manny Pacquiao has partnered with a Chinese company and the Chinese government to set up a boxing institute in his name to share his knowledge about the sport. The 35-year-old has won eight world titles
