Stanton on display…Clash of conference leaders…76ers eye first win…Rangers host Flyers

MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Marlins will formally announce today the signing of outfielder Giancarlo Stanton to a 13-year, $325 million contract, the largest package for a U.S. athlete. The two sides finalized the deal on Monday, keeping the 25-year-old Stanton in Miami through at least the end of the decade. The All-Star outfielder led the National League last season with 37 homers, 299 total bases and a .555 slugging average while batting .288 with 105 RBIs.

TORONTO (AP) — The NBA’s two conference leaders square off tonight in Toronto as the Raptors host the Memphis Grizzlies. The 8-2 Raptors have gone 4-1 in the first five games of a seven-game homestand, including a 111-93 rout of Utah in Toronto’s last contest on Saturday. The Grizzlies are the best in the West at 10-1 and come off Monday’s convincing 119-93 rout of the 9-2 Houston Rockets.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia 76ers take another crack at earning their first win of the season when they take on the visiting Boston Celtics. The Sixers are the NBA’s only winless team at 0-10 and come off Monday’s 100-75 loss to San Antonio. That game was a nail-biter compared to their 53-point loss in Dallas last Thursday.

UNDATED (AP) — The nation’s second- and third-ranked men’s basketball teams are in action tonight. No. 2 Arizona hosts UC Irvine as the Wildcats look to improve to 3-0. Third-ranked Wisconsin takes on Green Bay for state bragging rights after the Badgers won their first two games by a combined 75 points.

NEW YORK (AP) — Today’s two-game NHL schedule begins with the Philadelphia Flyers visiting the New York Rangers in a rematch of last year’s Eastern Conference quarterfinal series. Flyers right wing Jakub Voracek (YAH’-kuhb VOHR’-ah-chehk) is among the league leaders with 19 assists and 26 points, while teammate Claude Giroux (juh-ROO’) has 21 points. Rick Nash tops the Rangers with 12 goals and 19 points, but he was a minus-3 while going scoreless in Monday’s 5-1 loss to Tampa Bay.
