    CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) – The Panthers have finally given up on Armanti Edwards, waiving the fourth-year wide receiver.

    The team announced the move Tuesday.

    Former Panthers general manager Marty Hurney drafted the Appalachian State quarterback in the third round in 2010, giving up a second-round pick in 2011 to New England to get him.

    The move has proven to be one of the most costly in franchise history.

    Although Edwards was a favorite among local Mountaineer alum, he never made the transition to wide receiver at the NFL level. Edwards had five career receptions for 121 yards and averaged 7 yards per punt return.

    The Panthers haven’t filled his roster spot.

    Carolina signed wide receiver Toney Clemons to the practice squad and terminated wide receiver Cordell Roberson from the practice squad.

    WILMINGTON, NC(RELEASE) -– The Wilmington Athletic Club (WAC) will host it’s third squash tournament on October 12, 2013 not only in support of the sport’s growth in and around Wilmington NC but, also to support the inclusion of squash in the 2024 Olympic games. The date falls in the same month as World Squash Day, October 5th, 2013 which will have over 500 squash events around the world. The WAC Fall squash tournament will begin at 8:00 a.m. and conclude at 6:00 p.m.

    Players will be divided into groups of six according to their skill level and play a round-robin format with other members in the group. This is a handicap style tournament.

    About Squash In America and Around the Globe Squash is played mainly in big cities in America with a strong concentration of players in the New England States. America boasts a squash population short of a million people. Globally there are about 13 million players. US has about 1,000 squash court locations (plus ~2700 individual courts spread across the country.) There are more than 50,000 courts globally. Although there are several variations in size of a squash court depending on the form of the game being played, the most popular size of a court is 32 feet long by 21 feet wide. Once hit with a racquet, the ball can travel over 150 miles per hour. This combined with the foot speed required to get to the ball makes squash one of the fastest games in the world. In 2003 Fortune Magazine named squash as the healthiest sport to play. Squash is not an Olympic sport. It was the top sport in consideration for being added on in 2016.

    GREENVILLE, NC (AP) – East Carolina has suspended two receivers indefinitely for violating undisclosed team policies.

    Coach Ruffin McNeill announced the suspensions of junior Danny Webster and redshirt freshman Quataye Smyre on Tuesday.

    Webster has started four games and ranks third on the team with 18 catches for 144 yards, and also has seen action on the punt-return and kickoff-return teams.

    Smyre has played in two of the Pirates’ last three games and has three receptions for 19 yards.

    McNeill says he and his coaches “talk about being accountable as a program and any behavior that contradicts that is unacceptable.”

    DETROIT (AP) – Max Scherzer escaped a major jam in relief and the Detroit Tigers – helped by two fans who reached out to reel in Victor Martinez’s disputed home run – rallied past the Oakland Athletics 8-6 on Tuesday to force a decisive fifth game in their AL division series.

    Playing catch-up most of the way, the Tigers tied it first with Jhonny Peralta’s three-run homer in the fifth inning and then on Martinez’s solo shot in the seventh. A couple of fans tried to catch Martinez’s drive, and at least one of them bobbled the ball as he reached over the railing above the wall – preventing right fielder Josh Reddick from having any chance at a leaping grab.

    Reddick and center fielder Coco Crisp immediately protested, pointing up at the stands in the hope of a fan-interference call. But umpires upheld the home run after a replay review.

    ST. PETERSBURG, FL (AP) – Shane Victorino’s infield single snapped a seventh-inning tie and journeyman Craig Breslow gave Boston a huge boost out of the bullpen, sending the Red Sox into the AL championship series with a 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.

    Koji Uehara got the final four outs – one night after giving up a game-winning homer – and the Red Sox rebounded to win the best-of-five playoff 3-1.

    Back in the ALCS for the first time in five years, they’ll open at home Saturday against the Athletics or Tigers. Oakland hosts Detroit in a decisive Game 5 on Thursday.

    Both managers mixed and matched all night in a tense game that felt more like a chess match. Desperately trying to avoid elimination, Rays skipper Joe Maddon used nine pitchers.

    PITTSBURGH (AP) – Jussi Jokinen scored his first career hat trick and the Pittsburgh Penguins pulled away from the Carolina Hurricanes for a 5-2 win Tuesday night.

    Jokinen helped the Penguins improve to 3-0, opening the scoring in the first period and adding two goals the third after Carolina drew even at 2-2.

    Paul Martin and Tanner Glass also scored for Pittsburgh, while Sidney Crosby picked up his first two assists of the season. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 32 shots for the Penguins, who have not trailed through three games. Pittsburgh has outscored opponents 12-3 while getting off to the franchise’s best start since 1994-95.

    Eric Staal and Nathan Gerbe scored for the Hurricanes and Cam Ward made 32 saves.
