Lawyer ordered to retrieve all copies of e-mails

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A Fort Smith lawyer who sent reporters copies of e-mails he had been ordered not to obtain in a 2007 suit over an e-mail sent to Arkansas backup quarterback Mitch Mustain has now been ordered to retrieve all those copies.

Eddie Christian Jr. was ordered by Washington County Circuit Judge Mark Lindsay in 2007 to cease discovery - efforts to obtain evidence and testimony in a lawsuit - but nonetheless issued a subpoena to the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration for e-mails sent by Sherri Darby. Darby was the housemate of a woman who had criticized Mustain in a profanity-laced e-mail she sent to him.

When Christian obtained Darby's e-mails, he immediately sent many of them to members of the media and others.

Earlier this year, Christian was cited for contempt of court and fined $21,000 for defying Lindsay's end-discovery order.

Feldman wins 5th road start in row, tops Rays 4-0

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Scott Feldman won his fifth consecutive road start, Michael Young and Ivan Rodriguez each drove in two runs and the Texas Rangers avoided a 3-game sweep by beating the Tampa Bay Rays 4-0 on Sunday.

Feldman (13-4) is the first Texas pitcher with victories in five straight starts away from home since Rick Helling accomplished the feat in 1998. The right-hander, 9-1 this season on the road, allowed four hits in seven scoreless innings.

Young extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a two-run single in the third that put Texas ahead 2-0.

Red Bulls beat FC Dallas to snap skid

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Juan Pablo Angel scored his second goal with two minutes left in regulation, helping the New York Red Bulls beat FC Dallas 3-2 on Sunday and snap a 13-match winless streak.

It was the Red Bulls' first victory since May 8 against San Jose, and gave interim coach Richie Williams a winning debut. Williams took over after Juan Carlos Osorio resigned Friday.

Angel missed the previous two matches due to a concussion sustained in CONCACAF Champions League play. Angel scored the go-ahead goal when he knocked in the rebound of Macoumba Kandji's shot in the 88th minute.

Cowboys RB Jones again showing big-play potential

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Cowboys are excited about what Felix Jones did with a simple play that sent Dallas on its way to a 30-10 victory over the Tennessee Titans.

It was a check-down pass Friday night to a running back during a 2-minute drill.

Jones ran straight ahead, saw two defenders closing in, then slowed and cut left.

As those guys were sprawled out, wondering how they missed him, Jones sped up. He turned this short toss into a 42-yard gain and drew a roar from the home crowd.

Then, with one second left in the half, Jones took a handoff and walked into the end zone with the go-ahead touchdown.

In the post-game locker room, everyone was still buzzing about Jones' video-game-like moves on his big play.

It was a reminder of how much the Cowboys missed Jones when he was hurt last season -- and of how he could be the big-play threat to help everyone forget wide receiver Terrell (TER'-ehl) Owens.
