Boston, St. Louis archbishops bet
BOSTON (AP) — At least one cardinal is rooting for the Red Sox in the World Series.
The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Boston, Cardinal Sean O’Malley, is wagering that the Boston Red Sox will beat the St. Louis Cardinals in the series that begins Wednesday at Fenway Park.
If the Red Sox win, St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson will donate $100 to Boston Catholic Charities.
Should the Cardinals win, O’Malley will donate $100 to the St. Louis archdiocese’s charity fund.
Catholic Charities in Boston and St. Louis provide a spectrum of social service care to thousands of people.

Rams bring in QBs Quinn, Davis for depth
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Rams have signed Brady Quinn and Austin Davis, quickly adding quarterbacks after losing Sam Bradford to a season-ending left knee injury.
Kellen Clemens, the backup the past two years, will make his first start since 2011 on Monday night against the Seahawks.
Quinn was a first-round pick by the Browns in 2007. He has bounced around and cut by the Jets on Monday.
Davis was among the Rams’ final cuts before the opener. He was the third-stringer for St. Louis last year and did not play.
Bradford, who had started every game since the start of the 2012 season, was placed on injured reserve. He injured his knee in the fourth quarter Sunday in a loss at Carolina and is expected to undergo surgery in a few weeks when swelling subsides.
