TAMPA, FL (AP) - Cam Newton threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score Thursday night to lead the surging Carolina Panthers to a 31-13 victory over the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Panthers (4-3) won for the fourth time in five games following an 0-2 start. They've won three straight, with Newton throwing for 667 yards, six TDs and no interceptions.

The Bucs (0-7), one of two NFL teams yet to win, have dropped the first seven games in a season for the seventh time in franchise history. They've lost 12 of 13 dating to last year, and some fans showed up at Raymond James Stadium carrying signs and wearing paper bags over their heads urging that second-year coach Greg Schiano be fired.

ST. PAUL, MN (AP) - Nino Niederreiter and Zach Parise scored for Minnesota with the first two shots of the season against Carolina fill-in goalie Justin Peters, and the Wild beat the Hurricanes 3-1 on Thursday night despite losing their own starting goalie to injury.

Cam Ward was hurt just 4:07 into the game, an unspecified lower-body injury that forced the Hurricanes to send Peters in cold. He stopped 19 shots after settling in, but his rough start was costly.

Alexander Semin's power-play goal in the second period pulled the Hurricanes within one, but they couldn't muster any more in the final frame against Niklas Backstrom, who relieved starter Josh Harding in net.

Dany Heatley got his first goal of the season in the closing seconds, an empty-netter on a power play, to clinch the Wild's second straight win. They are 4-0-2 at home.

BOSTON (AP) - Michael Wacha won again in October and the St. Louis Cardinals got just enough help from Boston, beating the Red Sox 4-2 Thursday night to tie the World Series at 1-all.

Down 2-1 after David Ortiz hit a two-run homer in the sixth, the Cardinals rallied for three runs in the seventh to end Boston's nine-game winning streak in the World Series that started with a sweep of St. Louis in 2004.

Matt Carpenter's tying sacrifice fly set off a chain of Red Sox misplays. Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia let the wide throw home skip off his glove, then pitcher Craig Breslow made a wild toss that wound up in the Fenway Park seats.

Trevor Rosenthal struck out the side in the ninth for a save. John Lackey took the loss.

Game 3 is Saturday night at Busch Stadium. Jake Peavy is set to start for Boston against Joe Kelly.
