LOS ANGELES (AP) - The San Jose Sharks are one win away from kicking off their latest postseason run with a first-round sweep. A win by the Sharks in Game 4 on Thursday night would finish off the reeling Los Angeles Kings, the 2012 champs and their biggest rivals.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland A's have rejected a deal to play at its ballpark for the foreseeable future, saying the 10-year lease extension offer doesn't meet all their requirements.
