WASHINGTON (AP) — A personal familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that second baseman Daniel Murphy and the Nationals have agreed to a three-year, $37.5 million contract, pending a physical.

He also homered in the Mets' last six NL playoff games, but he hit just .150 in the World Series and made a pair of critical errors
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Sebastian Janikowski hit a 31-yard field goal with 8:05 left in overtime before the Oakland Raiders stopped the Chargers on downs to complete a 23-20 triumph against San Diego. Derek Carr's 3-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree and two-yard toss to Seth Roberts on the two-point conversion put the Raiders ahead 20-17 with 4:42 to play in regulation. That was enough time for Philip Rivers to march the Chargers down field and set up Josh Lambo's 45-yard field goal with 55 seconds left.

HONOLULU (AP) — San Diego dominated the Hawaii Bowl as the Aztecs scored TDs on a kickoff, an interception and a halfback option en route to a 42-7 rout of Cincinnati. The 11-3 Aztecs went ahead to stay when Rashaad Penny returned the opening kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown.
