NEW YORK (AP) - The hobbling Chicago Bulls are on a stretch of four games in five nights. They're on the road Wednesday night to face the New York Knicks. The Bulls were missing four starters in Tuesday night's home loss to Milwaukee. New York has lost two straight games and eleven of its last 13.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Chicago White Sox broadcaster Ken Harrelson and St. Louis Cardinals announcer Mike Shannon will have to wait at least another year for their call from baseball's Hall of Fame. They were finalists for the Ford C. Frick Award for excellence in broadcasting. The award is going to longtime Texas Rangers play-by-play man Eric Nadel (NAY'-del).
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Make it 10 straight seasons without a winning record for the St. Louis Rams. Sunday's loss at Arizona leaves the Rams with a 5-8 record and out of playoff contention. They'll need to win their last three games just to make it to .500 and will be underdogs this week against New Orleans and in the season finale at Seattle.
