Bo Ryan-Small College Hall of Fame

Former Wisconsin Platteville men’s basketball coach Bo Ryan will be inducted into another hall of fame later this month.

Ryan will be one of 12 former players and coaches enshrined into the 2019 class of the Small College Basketball Hall of Fame during ceremonies on October 31st in St. Joseph, Missouri.

Ryan guided the Pioneers to four NCAA Division III National Championships in 1991, 1995, 1998 and 1999. The ’95 and ’98 titlists posted 31-0 and 30-0 records, respectively, only the second and third time that feat has been accomplished in DIII history.

Ryan was named DIII National Coach of the Year four times and also earned WSUC/WIAC Coach of the Year honors six times. He is a member of the UW-Platteville Athletic Hall of Fame, the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame and the Hall of Fame at Wilkes University (his alma mater).

Game 4 pushed to tonight…McDavid and Draisaitl lead Oilers over Flyers 6-3…Tanev lifts Penguins over Avalanche 3-2

NEW YORK (AP) – Rain has pushed Game 4 of the AL Championship Series to tonight. And the Houston Astros and New York Yankees will play Game 5 on Friday at Yankee Stadium and Game 6 in Houston on Saturday if necessary. Houston leads the series 2-1. It’s expected that Houston will start Zack Greinke  against the Yankees’ Masahiro Tanaka in a rematch of      Game 1. Tanaka pitched six sterling innings as New York won the opener 7-0.

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) – Connor McDavid had a goal and four assists, Leon Draisaitl added two goals and one assist, and the Edmonton Oilers’ dynamic duo continued their sizzling start to the season in a 6-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers. It was McDavid’s third career five-point game.

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Brandon Tanev scored a short-handed goal in overtime, and the Pittsburgh Penguins handed the Colorado Avalanche their first loss of the season with a 3-2 victory Wednesday night. Tanev, Pittsburgh’s biggest free-agent pickup in the offseason, scored his first goal with his new team 3:57 into the extra session. He became the second player in franchise history with a short-handed overtime goal, joining Mario Lemieux on Jan. 22, 1996.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Joe Maddon has agreed to become the Los Angeles Angels’ manager. Maddon and the Angels agreed to terms on a deal to reunite the veteran manager with the organization where he spent the first three decades of his baseball career. Maddon left the Chicago Cubs by mutual consent last month after they missed the playoffs for the first time in his five-year tenure. In 2016, he led the Cubs to their first World Series title in 108 years.

CLEVELAND (AP) – Cleveland Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett says he was punched in the face by a “fan” who wanted to take a picture with him. Garrett posted on his Twitter account that the man delivered a blow that had little effect. The muscular 6-foot-4, 270-pounder joked that his attacker should have “put your legs into it.” A Browns spokesman said the team is aware of the incident “and appropriate law enforcement authorities have been notified.”

Cuba City to Approve Brad Lutes New Girls Basketball Coach

The Cuba City School Board will meet tonight to put their official stamp of approval on naming Brad Lutes as the new head varsity girls basketball coach of the Cuban program.

In May, Lutes was hired as the new Cuba City elementary principal and will take over for Hall of fame coach Jeff Pustina. Most recently, Lutes was the junior varsity boys coach at Sun Prairie High School.

Pustina currently ranks third in Wisconsin girls basketball state history for wins with 662 and finished with a stunning win percentage of .826 (662-139) which included nine state championships . In August, he was named an assistant women’s coach at University of Wisconsin Platteville.

Nats take NL pennant…Astros go up 2-1 on Yankees…Rams get Ramsey from Jaguars…Bears lose Hicks

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Washington Nationals have their first National League pennant after erupting for seven runs in the first inning to complete a four-game sweep of St. Louis, 7-4. Trea Turner led off the game with a hit, scored the first run and capped the Nats’ outburst with a two-run single. The Cardinals managed just six runs and 16 hits the entire series, allowing a Washington team advance to a World Series for the first time since the 1933 Senators.

NEW YORK (AP) – Gerrit Cole worked seven shutout innings and the Houston Astros took a two-games-to-one lead in the American League Championship Series with a 4-1 victory over the New York Yankees. Cole struck out seven and allowed four hits while improving to 3-0 with a 0.40 ERA in three starts this postseason. Jose Altuve and Josh Reddick belted solo homers to back Cole, who is 19-0 in 25 starts since a May 22 loss to the Chicago White Sox.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – The Jacksonville Jaguars have finally parted with Jalen Ramsey by sending the disgruntled cornerback to the Los Angeles Rams for first-round picks in 2020 and 2021, along with a fourth-round pick in 2021. Ramsey is one of the NFL’s elite defensive backs, earning two Pro Bowl selections and one first-team All-Pro nod in three seasons with Jaguars. The fifth overall pick in the 2016 draft has nine career interceptions along with innumerable conflicts with his coaches, the front office and the Jags’ opponents.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) – The Chicago Bears have put Pro Bowl defensive tackle Akiem Hicks on injured reserve, the latest blow on the injury front for a team trying to keep up in the NFC North. Hicks suffered an elbow injury Oct. 6 against the Oakland Raiders. Coach Matt Nagy had suggested Hicks might return this season, and putting him on IR allows the Bears to bring him back in eight weeks.

TORONTO (AP) – Canada has beaten the United States men’s soccer team for the first time in 34 years, getting second-half goals from Alphonso Davies and Lucas Cavallini for a 2-0 victory in the CONCACAF Nations League. The Americans hadn’t lost to Canada in 17 games and didn’t allow a goal in their previous four meetings. The 21st-ranked U.S. was coming off last week’s opening 7-0 home rout of Cuba.

Nats up 3-0 after blasting Cards…Stanton hopes to play today…Packers rally past Lions

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Washington Nationals can close out the first National League pennant in franchise history by beating the St. Louis Cardinals this evening. Stephen Strasburg struck out 12 while allowing an unearned run and seven hits over seven innings of the Nationals’ 8-1 rout of the Redbirds. Howie Kendrick doubled three times and drove in three runs for the Nats, who have outscored the Cards 13-2 in the series.

NEW YORK (AP) – New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton is trying to heal up a strained right quad that kept him out of the starting lineup for Game 2 of the AL Championship Series in Houston. The teams are tied 1-all, and manager Aaron Boone is hopeful Stanton can recover in time to start Game 3 this afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Stanton was injured running out an infield single in the second inning of Game 1 but remained in the game and homered off Zack Greinke in a 7-0 victory.

NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Yankees and Houston Astros plan all-bullpen games from the start in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series in the Bronx. Houston manager AJ Hinch anticipates rookie right-hander Jose Urquidy will pitch at some point in Game 4 but preferred to call it “a bullpen day.” Yanks skipper Aaron Boone says he can see regular-season starter J.A. Happ in his mix of Wednesday hurlers.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) – The Green Bay Packers still lead the NFC North after Aaron Rodgers engineered a pair of late scoring drives in a 23-22 comeback win over the Detroit Lions. Mason Crosby’s 23-yard field goal as time expired gives the Packers a 5-1 record and drops the Lions to 2-2-1. Detroit led 22-13 until Rodgers hit Allen Lazard for a 35-yard touchdown with 9:01 to play.

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) – Ryan Blaney outdueled Ryan Newman over the final two laps to win NASCAR’s Cup race at Talladega Superspeedway and earn a berth in the third round of the playoffs. Blaney lost the lead to Newman before getting a push from fellow Ford driver Aric Almirola to earn his first win of the year and join Kyle Larson in the round of eight. Denny Hamlin was third, followed by Almirola and Michael McDowell as Ford took four of the top five spots.

Correa lets Astros tie series…Tigers climb to No. 2 in AP football poll…NASCAR tries again

HOUSTON (AP) – The American League Championship Series is tied at a game apiece after Carlos Correa belted a walk-off, solo homer off J.A. Happ in the 11th inning to give the Houston Astros a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees.

HUMBLE, Texas (AP) – Lanto Griffin has qualified for the Masters by capturing the Houston Open.

None of the three had won on the PGA Tour. Harrington missed a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th and shot 67.

STUTTGART, Germany (AP) – Simone Biles has broken the all-time record for most medals by any gymnast at the world championships by winning the balance beam competition yesterday in Stuttgart.

ST.

The no-hit bid ended when pinch-hitter Jose Martinez singled with two-out in the eighth before Sean Doolittle got the last four outs to finish the combined one-hitter. Yan Gomes hit an RBI double in the second inning and Howie Kendrick singled home the insurance run in the eighth.

HOUSTON (AP) – The starting pitchers are set for the first three games of the AL Championship Series between the Houston Astros and New York Yankees.

Other Sports Updates

UNDATED (AP) – Olympic gold medalist Conor Dwyer has announced his retirement shortly after receiving a 20-month doping ban for having testosterone pellets inserted into his hip.

Astros oust Rays…Phils drop Kapler…Pats stay unbeaten…Jags owner expects Ramsey to play Sunday

HOUSTON (AP) – Gerrit Cole worked eight strong innings and the Houston Astros reached the American League Championship Series by whipping the Tampa Bay Rays, 6-1 in Game 5 of the ALDS. Cole followed his 15-strikeout performance in Game 1 of the ALDS by fanning 10 while limiting the wild-card champs to one run and two hits. Jose Altuve  poked an RBI single to spark the Astros’ four-run first inning before he and Michael Brantley hit back-to-back homers in the eighth to cap the scoring.

NEW YORK (AP) – New York Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks could make a surprise return from elbow injury to start in AL Championship Series against Houston. The switch-hitter has not played since Aug. 3. CC Sabathia also could be back on the roster after missing the Division Series sweep of Minnesota because of a sore pitching shoulder. The 39-year-old left-hander is retiring after the postseason.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – The Philadelphia Phillies are the eighth major league team currently without a manager after Gabe Kapler was let go today. Kapler went 161-163 in two years at the helm, including an 81-81 mark this season following the acquisitions of All-Stars Bryce Harper and J.T. Realmuto . The Phils have missed the postseason the last eight years since a string of five straight NL East titles.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – Tom Brady is No. 2 on the NFL’s career list for passing yards and the New England Patriots are 6-0 for the first time since 2015 after thumping the New York Giants, 35-14. Brady ran for two touchdowns and threw for 334 yards to pass Peyton Manning on the all-time list. New York QB Daniel Jones had his worst game since taking over for Eli Manning in Week 3, completing just 15 of 31 passes for 161 yards and three interceptions while the Giants played without four of their top offensive weapons.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan expects cornerback Jalen Ramsey to play this Sunday. Khan told a financial news site, The Street, he had a “heart to heart” with the disgruntled defensive back earlier this week and said Ramsey is scheduled to play against New Orleans. Ramsey has practiced on a limited basis the last two days after missing seven straight because of illness, back tightness and the birth of his second daughter.

Cardinals, Nationals reach NLCS…Dolphins sticking with Rosen…Burfict loses appeal

ATLANTA (AP) – The St. Louis Cardinals have advanced to the National League Championship Series following the biggest first inning in major league postseason history. The Redbirds erupted for 10 runs against Mike Foltynewicz  and Max Fried  in the opening frame and clobbered the Atlanta Braves, 13-1 in Game 5 of the NL Division series. Tommy Edman, Dexter Fowler and Kolten Wong each delivered two-run doubles after an error by first baseman Freddie Freeman prevented the Braves from possibly getting out of the inning trailing just 1-0.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Howie Kendrick has put the Washington Nationals in the NL Championship Series for the first time by belting a grand slam in the 10th inning of a 7-3 comeback win over the Dodgers in Los Angeles. Homers by Max Muncy  and Kike  Hernandez gave the Dodgers and early 3-0, but the Nats forced extra innings when Anthony Rendon and Juan Soto belted consecutive solo shots in the eighth.

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) – Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores says Josh Rosen will be his starting quarterback the remainder of the season. Rosen supplanted veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick in Week 3 and will start for the third game in a row Sunday against the Washington Redskins. Flores says Rosen has improved on a week-to-week basis, adding that he thinks Rosen “needs to get in there and develop and get reps and just improve.”

UNDATED (AP) – Vontaze Burfict’s appeal to overturn his suspension for a helmet-to-helmet hit has been denied, keeping the Oakland Raiders linebacker off the field the rest of the season. Appeals officer Derrick Brooks has ruled that he would not reduce the longest suspension ever handed down for an on-field infraction. Brooks is appointed jointly by the NFL and the NFLPA and heard Burfict’s appeal of the ban for the final 12 games of the regular season and the playoffs.

UNDATED (AP) – NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has told the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers that the league is still expecting them to play in China as scheduled this week. Silver made the announcement while the rift between the league and Chinese officials continued in ways that clearly suggested the two planned games in Shanghai and Shenzhen were anything but guaranteed. NBA activity in the country is in jeopardy after Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey posted a since-deleted tweet last week that showed support for anti-government protesters in Hong Kong.

Rays and Astros knotted…NHL’s Hurricanes undefeated…Temporarily paralyzed

TAMPA BAY, Fla. (AP) – The AL Division Series between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Houston Astros is all square. The Rays beat the Astros 4-1 Tuesday night to even the series at two games apiece. Ryan Yarbrough and five other pitchers combined on a six-hitter to beat Houston playoff veteran Justin Verlander, who was chased early. The best of five series shifts back to Houston for the decisive fifth game on Thursday.

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) – The Carolina Hurricanes are on a roll. They won their fourth straight Tuesday night in a 6-3 victory of the Florida Panthers. The start equals the best in franchise history.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) – Broncos cornerback De’Vante Bausby says he was temporarily paralyzed during Denver’s 20-13 win over the Chargers in Los Angeles. Bausby collided with teammate Alexander Johnson while making a tackle and was strapped to a backboard and taken to a trauma center. Bausby says he could wiggle his toes 30 minutes later and regained full mobility after two hours. He walked out of the hospital and flew home with his teammates.

MIAMI (AP) – Gregg Popovich, the NBA’s longest-tenured coach, is praising NBA Commissioner Adam Silver for his stance supporting freedom of speech amid the ongoing rift with China. Popovich says he recognized that Silver is in a difficult situation following the Chinese dismay over a tweet posted last week by Houston general manager Daryl Morey that showed support for anti-government protesters in Hong Kong.

DALLAS (AP) – An interscholastic rules organization in Texas has decided that two players on an East Texas high school football team coached by former Baylor coach Art Briles are ineligible. The Dallas Morning News reports a district committee voted 6-0 three weeks ago that Brock and Cameron Nellor moved to the Mount Vernon Independent School District for athletic purposes.

Rays advance to face Astros…Pats shelve struggling Gostkowski…Three Chiefs return

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – The Tampa Bay Rays have won the AL wild-card game by homering four times in the first three innings of a 5-1 win over the Athletics in Oakland. Yandy Diaz became the third player to homer twice in a wild-card game, leading off the game with a blast and going deep in the third inning.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Defensive back Morris Claiborne has returned to the practice field with the Chiefs after serving his four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. The 4-0 Chiefs also welcomed back wide receiver Tyreek Hill and running back Damien Williams from injuries yesterday, although it’s uncertain how much the three will play Sunday against the Cubs. Hill has been sidelined since Week 1 with a collarbone injury, and Williams has been nursing an ankle issue.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Jacksonville Jaguars disgruntled cornerback Jalen Ramsey missed his fifth consecutive practice and was listed on the injury report yesterday with a back injury.

FLORHAM PARK, N.Y. (AP) – New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold practiced yesterday for the first time since being diagnosed with mononucleosis three weeks ago.

After Hader loaded the bases by hitting one batter, walking another and allowing a bloop single, Soto took a 96 mph fastball to right, and the ball skipped under outfielder Trent Grisham’s glove.

OAKLAND (AP) – Sean Manaea will start Wednesday’s AL wild-card game for the Oakland Athletics against the Tampa Bay Rays just more than a year removed from shoulder surgery.

Steelers whip Bengals…A Burfict punishment…Angels axe Ausmus…Cal. Gov. defies NCAA threat

PITTSBURGH (AP) – The Pittsburgh Steelers earned their first win of the season as Mason Rudolph passed for 229 yards and a pair of scores in a 27-3 rout of Cincinnati. Rudolph completed 26 of his 30 passes, including a 21-yard screen pass to James Connor for the go-ahead TD in the second quarter. The Steelers sacked Andy Dalton eight times, picked him off once and forced a second-quarter fumble of the Cincinnati quarterback.

NEW YORK (AP) – Oakland Raiders linebacker Vontaze Burfict will sit out the remainder of the NFL season and the playoffs for his hit on Indianapolis tight end Jack Doyle during Sunday’s win over the Colts. The league said the 12-game ban and postseason punishment is for repeated violations of unnecessary roughness rules. Burfict had served two three-game suspensions already while with the Cincinnati Bengals and had been warned about severe punishment for future infractions.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Six major league teams are in the market for new managers after the Los Angeles Angels dismissed Brad Ausmus. The Angels went just 72-90 in their lone season under Ausmus, who took over for longtime skipper Mike Scioscia . The other managerial vacancies are with the Chicago Cubs, Pittsburgh Pirates, San Diego Padres, Kansas City Royals and San Francisco Giants.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Defying the NCAA, California has opened the way for college athletes to hire agents and make money from endorsement deals, just like the pros. Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom says he’s signed the law that is set to take effect in 2023 and could upend amateur sports in the U.S. The NCAA implored Newsom to veto the bill and has threatened to bar California schools from competition.

UNDATED (AP) – A group of former Louisville men’s basketball players has reached a confidential settlement of a lawsuit with the NCAA. The settlement did not restore the Cardinals’ vacated 2013 national championship and 2012 Final Four, but it retains the players’ statistics and honors “without an asterisk.” The five players sued the governing body in July 2018 seeking restoration of the school’s NCAA title, wins, honors and awards vacated among sanctions for violations discovered during an escort scandal investigation.

Cards take NL Central…Maddon, Hurdle leaving dugouts…Elliott wins at Charlotte

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Jack Flaherty fired two-hit ball over seven innings and the St. Louis Cardinals clinched their first NL Central title in five years by ripping the Chicago Cubs, 9-0. Matt Carpenter’s three-run blast gave the Cards an eight-run cushion. Dexter Fowler belted a two-run homer in the second and Paul Goldschmidt added a solo blast after his RBI single put the Cardinals ahead in the first inning.

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Manager Joe Maddon will not be back with the Cubs next season after they failed to make the playoffs for the first time in five years. Maddon led Chicago to the postseason the previous four years and was on the bench when the 2016 Cubs won the World Series to end a 108-year championship drought. Chicago was poised to reach the postseason this month until a nine-game losing streak led to the Cubs’ elimination.

PITTSBURGH (AP) – The Pirates have fired manager Clint Hurdle following a stunning second-half collapse that dropped Pittsburgh to the bottom of the NL Central and included a series of off-the-field issues. Pittsburgh went 69-93 overall and 25-48 after the All-Star break. Hurdle went 735-720 in nine seasons with Pittsburgh, helping the franchise emerge from 20 years of losing to reach the playoffs three straight years from 2013-15.

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) – Chase Elliott overcame a major mistake to win NASCAR’s Cup playoff race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Elliott recovered from an earlier gaffe when he was leading on a restart, locked his wheels headed into the first turn and drove directly into a tire barrier. Alex Bowman finished second in the race and managed to advance to the second round when Ryan Newman missed a chicane, an error that cost him his shot at joining the final 12.

UNDATED (AP) – Alabama is No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll for the first time this season, replacing preseason No. 1 Clemson following the Tigers’ 21-20 win at North Carolina. Alabama received 29 of 61 first-place votes from the media panel, while second-ranked Clemson claimed 18. Third-ranked Georgia picked up four first-place votes and No. 4 Ohio claimed seven. LSU is ranked 5th. Wisconsin stayed put at 8th and Iowa is still ranked 14th this week.

Sports Updates from the AP

UNDATED (AP) – The Oakland Athletics and Tampa Bay Rays wrapped up the two AL wild-card berths with help from the Cleveland Indians’ 8-2 loss at Washington. The A’s lead the Rays by one game after J.P. Crawford delivered a walk-off double in the bottom of the ninth to give Seattle a 4-3 win against Oakland. Tommy Pham hit a two-run blast and Austin Meadows added his 33nd home run of the season to power the Rays past Toronto, 6-2.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) – No. 12 Penn State is 40-2-1 all-time against Maryland after Sean Clifford threw for 398 yards and three touchdowns in the Nittany Lions’ 59-0 laugher at College Park. Clifford also had a TD run for the Nittany Lions, who led 38-0 at halftime and finished with 619 yards in their Big Ten opener. Penn State improved to 4-0 this season and has outscored the Terrapins 201-20 over their last four meetings.

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) – Eno Benjamin scored his third touchdown of the game on a 3-yard run with 4:41 remaining to lead Arizona State to a 24-17 victory over No. 15 California. Jayden Daniels added 174 yards passing and 84 more on the ground as the Sun Devils earned their second road win this season against a ranked team. The Golden Bears lost quarterback Chase Garbers to a right shoulder injury, spoiling their highest ranking in a decade.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) – Patrik Laine’s contract impasse is over after the Winnipeg Jets re-signed the restricted free agent to a two-year, $13.5 million package. The 21-year-old forward has 110 goals and 184 points in 237 regular-season games with the Jets, including 30 goals last season. Laine has been practicing with SC Bern in Switzerland while his agent and the Jets hammered out his contract.

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) – William Byron and Alex Bowman led Hendrick Motorsports to a sweep of the front row in qualifying for the first elimination race in NASCAR’s playoffs. Byron went 103.198 mph around the hybrid road course/oval track at Charlotte Motor Speedway that was reconfigured last season to spice up the playoff stop. The bottom four in the playoff standings are Bowman, Clint Bowyer, Kurt Busch and Erik Jones, who dropped to last in the 16-driver field when his car failed post-race inspection last weekend at Richmond.

Fighting Saints Season Opens Today

The Dubuque Fighting Saints begin their 10th anniversary season this morning at the USHL Fall Classic in Pittsburgh. Dubuque faces off against the Muskegon Lumberjacks.  Last season, the Lumberjacks and Fighting Saints tied 2-2 in the regular season series. All four regular season games were decided by one goal with each team taking one at home and one on the road. The puck will drop this morning at 9 o’clock

Tomorrow morning Dubuque will play the Madison Capitols. The Saints are coming off an impressive preseason in which they averaged five goals a game, leading them to an unblemished 4-0 record.

Twins take division… Brewers get playoff berth…Cards stumble…No German for postseason

DETROIT (AP) – The Minnesota Twins are AL Central champions for the first time since 2010 following a 5-1 win at Detroit. Randy Dobnak allowed one hit in six sparkling innings, but Minnesota trailed until Luis Arraez smacked a two-run homer in the seventh. Eddie Rosario also hit a two-run blast for the Twins, who were able to celebrate when Cleveland lost 8-3 to the Chicago White Sox.

CINCINNATI (AP) – The Milwaukee Brewers wrapped up an NL playoff berth by winning for the 17th time in 19 games, a 9-2 rout of the Reds in Cincinnati. Ryan Braun belted a grand slam and Eric Thames immediately followed with a solo shot while the Brewers put together a six-run first inning. Jordan Lyles allowed two runs and three hits over five innings to help the Brew Crew pull within 1 1/2 games of the NL Central-leading St. Louis Cardinals.

PHOENIX (AP) – The Cardinals blew a 5-2 lead by surrendering seven runs in the sixth inning of a 9-7 loss to Arizona. Wilmer Flores had four RBIs for the DBacks, including a two-run homer that capped the sixth-inning fireworks. St. Louis scored twice in the ninth and had the potential go-ahead run at the plate until pinch-hitter Paul Goldschmidt grounded into a game-ending double play.

NEW YORK (AP) – Domingo German’s administrative leave under Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy has been extended through the World Series, leaving the New York Yankees without their winningest pitcher for the postseason. German was placed on leave for seven days last Thursday for an alleged domestic violence incident involving his girlfriend last week. MLB and the players’ association agreed to the extension on today, ending his season. German was 18-4 with a 4.03 ERA in 24 starts and three relief appearances over 143 innings this year.

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh Pirates closer Felipe Vazquez has been ordered held without bond following his arrest on multiple felony charges, including sexual assault of a minor. Vazquez was taken into custody last week by Pennsylvania State Police on an arrest warrant from Florida stemming from illicit electronic communication with an underage girl. A judge denied bond for the 28-year-old Vazquez during a brief hearing on Wednesday.

Nets expect to spend season without KD…NBA fines Bucks…Bolton gets green light

NEW YORK (AP) – Brooklyn Nets general manager Sean Marks says the expectation is Kevin Durant won’t play this season, although the All-Star forward will have a say in determining when he’s ready. Durant is recovering from surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon suffered while playing for the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. He left the Warriors to sign with the Nets in July. Marks says Durant’s recovery is going well and believes he wants to play this season.

NEW YORK (AP) – The NBA has fined the Bucks $50,000 over a comment general manager Jon Horst made about the team’s plans to offer league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo  a “supermax” extension. The league says Horst violated league rules about the “timing of discussions regarding future player contracts and permissible commitments to players.” Antetokounmpo will be eligible next July to sign a record five-year extension worth nearly $250 million.

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State transfer guard Rasir Bolton will be eligible for the upcoming season after getting an NCAA waiver. Iowa State says Bolton received the immediate eligibility waiver after the NCAA considered the circumstances surrounding his transfer from Penn State. He averaged 11.6 points a game as a freshman for the Nittany Lions last season, shooting 36.1% on 3s and 87.6% from the line.

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The St. Louis Blues have bolstered their blueline by getting All-Star Justin Faulk from the Carolina Hurricanes for fellow defenseman Joel Edmundson and a prospect. The defending Stanley Cup champs immediately signed Faulk to a seven-year, $45.5 million extension that begins next year. The 27-year-old Faulk set team records for defensemen with 85 goals and 258 points during his eight seasons with the Hurricanes, who selected him in the first round of the 2010 NHL draft.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Christopher Bell has been promoted to NASCAR’s top series and will drive for Leavine Family Racing in 2020. Leavine is an affiliate of Joe Gibbs Racing, which along with Toyota has Bell under contract. Bell has won seven times this season and leads the Xfinity standings after last week’s playoffs opener.

ISU’s Purdy Big 12 POW 

Iowa State sophomore QB Brock Purdy was named the Big 12’s Offensive Player of the Week.

Purdy broke the school record for total offense in a game (510), throwing for 435 yards and rushing for 75 in the lopsided 72-20 win over Louisana-Monroe.

Nationals eye wild card…Mets lose ground…NCAA probes Kansas

WASHINGTON (AP) – Patrick Corbin pitched six effective innings, and the Washington Nationals beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-2 to strengthen their playoff positioning. Adam Eaton, Yan Gomes and Trea Turner homered for Washington, which moved a half-game ahead of idle Milwaukee for the top spot in the wild-card standings. The Nationals reduced their magic number to clinch a playoff berth to three.

NEW YORK (AP) – Steven Matz allowed two homers to Jorge Alfaro, including a grand slam, and the New York Mets lost to the Miami Marlins 8-4 to dim their fading postseason hopes. The Mets dropped five games behind idle Milwaukee for the final NL playoff spot with six games remaining. They also trail Washington by 5 1/2 games for the top wild card.

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) – Mitchell Trubisky threw his first three touchdown passes of the season, all to Taylor Gabriel in the second quarter, to finally get the Chicago Bears offense going and build a big lead that held up to beat the Washington Redskins 31-15. Chicago had just a 1-yard touchdown run to show for its first two games. Washington has lost all three games this season.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Kansas has received a notice from the NCAA that alleges significant violations within its storied men’s basketball program, including a responsibility charge leveled against Hall of Fame coach Bill Self. The notice includes three Level 1 violations tied primarily to recruiting and cites a lack of institutional control. It also includes notice of a secondary violation in football tied to then-coach David Beaty that involved the use of an extra coach during practice.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Philadelphia Eagles receiver Nelson Agholor has invited a man who rescued children from a burning house to be his guest at a game. The former firefighter criticized Agholor’s catching skills during a TV interview. Hakim Laws said another man was “throwing babies” from a burning house and he was catching them, “unlike Agholor.” The Eagles receiver has had a few key drops this season. Agholor thanked Laws for being a hero and invited him on Twitter to the Eagles’ next home game.

Chiefs outscore Ravens…..Pack still perfect…Cards Sweep Cubs….Brewers Stay Hot

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Patrick Mahomes  made up for the personnel losses by throwing for 374 yards and three touchdowns in the Kansas City Chiefs’ 33-28 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams combined for 116 yards rushing and a TD in place of the injured Damien Williams. Kansas City scored four times in the second quarter for the second consecutive week, this time getting three touchdowns and Harrison Butker’s 42-yard field goal to take a 23-6 lead.

 

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) – Aaron Rodgers was 17 of 29 for 235 yards and a touchdown as the 3-0 Green Bay Packers earned a 27-16 win over the 0-3 Denver Broncos.

– NFL rushing leader Dalvin Cook cruised past the 100-yard mark for the third straight game, gaining 110 on 16 carries and scoring a touchdown as the Vikings thumped the Raiders, 34-14.

CHICAGO (AP) – Paul Goldschmidt hit a tiebreaking double in the ninth inning and the St. Louis Cardinals clinched a playoff spot by beating the Chicago Cubs 3-2 for their first four-game sweep at Wrigley Field in almost a century. NL Central-leading St. Louis qualified for the postseason for the first time since 2015 and stayed three games ahead of Milwaukee.

MILWAUKEE (AP) – Eric Thames hit two home runs, the Brewers took a combined perfect game into the seventh inning and Milwaukee beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 to match Washington atop the NL wild-card standings.

Yanks wrap up AL East…Twins stay 4 up on Indians…Cards trip Cubs…Brewers beat Padres…Jags Win First

NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Yankees are AL East champions for the first time in seven years following a 9-1 pounding of the Angels. DJ LeMahieu  belted a three-run homer and Brett Gardner provided a solo shot and a two-run double in New York’s 100th win. Cameron Maybin and Clint Frazier added eighth-inning homers after Masahiro Tanaka  limited Los Angeles to a Kole Calhoun home run and just three other hits over seven frames.

UNDATED (AP) – Minnesota’s 8-5 win over the Royals allowed the Twins to maintain their four-game lead over Cleveland in the AL Central. Nelson Cruz hit two of Minnesota’s four home runs and matched his season high with five RBIs. The Indians were 7-0 winners over the Tigers behind Mike Clevinger, who blanked Detroit despite allowing seven hits over six innings.

CHICAGO (AP) – The St. Louis Cardinals have kept their three-game lead over Milwaukee in the NL Central by downing the Cubs, 5-4 in 10 innings at Wrigley Field. The Redbirds blew a 4-1 lead in the ninth before Matt Carpenter drilled a one-out homer in the tenth to drop the Cubs four games off the division lead. Cards starter Jack Flaherty struck out eight over eight innings and limited Chicago to three hits, including Anthony Rizzo’s third-inning homer.

MILWAUKEE (AP) – Milwaukee leads the Cubs by one game for the second NL wild card after five Brewers pitchers combined for 16 strikeouts in a 5-1 win over San Diego. Lorenzo Cain belted a solo homer in the fourth inning before immediately leaving the game with ankle soreness. Trent Grisham replaced Cain and hit a “Little League” home run, lining a double and moving to third on the throw before scoring on an errant toss to the plate.

ATLANTA (AP) – Ronald Acuna Jr. belted his 40th home run and the Atlanta Braves clinched at least a tie for the NL East title by downing the Philadelphia Phillies, 5-4. Mel Ott is the only player younger than the 21-year-old Acuna to hit 40 home runs in a season, doing it at age 20 for the 1940 Giants. Freddie Freeman had two RBIs and Mike Soroka  allowed two runs over five innings to move to 13-4.

 

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Gardner Minshew completed 20 of 30 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns in the Jacksonville Jaguars’ 20-7 victory against the Tennessee Titans.

Payton says no IR for Brees…Mahomes loses protection…NFL queries Brown accuser

SEATTLE (AP) – New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees will miss several weeks while recovering from surgery to repair a ligament near his right thumb. Coach Sean Payton wouldn’t discuss a timetable for Brees’ return, but said it’s unlikely he will be placed on injured reserve. That means doctors think Brees will be able to return this season. Payton declined to name a starter for the Sunday’s game at Seattle.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Pro Bowl left tackle Eric Fisher will undergo surgery on his injured groin, leaving the Chiefs without their blindside protector for Patrick Mahomes for the foreseeable future. Fisher hurt his groin in practice Friday but tried to play Sunday in Oakland. He only lasted a few plays before Cam Erving replaced him.

UNDATED (AP) – Two people with knowledge of the investigation into Antonio Brown being accused of sexual assault tell The Associated Press that one of the accusers has met with NFL investigators and that there is no timetable for concluding the probe. One of the people also confirmed that the district attorney’s office and police in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, have reached out to Brown’s lawyer about the allegations Britney Taylor made against the Patriots wide receiver in a civil lawsuit.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – The University of Louisville Athletic Association and former men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino have settled lawsuits stemming from his departure from the school. Pitino’s personnel file has been changed to note he resigned and wasn’t terminated. He received no money in the settlement. Pitino sued the ULAA for more than $38.7 million in November 2017. He accused the association of breaching its contract by firing him for cause the previous month in the wake of a federal bribery investigation of college basketball.

NEW YORK (AP) – Alibaba co-founder Joe Tsai (tsy) completed his purchase of the Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center, and then announced that he had hired former Turner Sports President David Levy as CEO.

Manning out, Jones in…Brees slated for surgery today…Newton ailing…Stanton returning

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur is making a quarterback change following the team’s 0-2 start, announcing that Daniel Jones is replacing veteran Eli Manning under center. Jones was taken by the Giants with the sixth overall pick in this year’s NFL draft and looked impressive during preseason. Manning owns every major team record for quarterbacks and led the Giants to Super Bowl titles following the 2007 and ’11 seasons, beating Tom Brady and the Patriots both times.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) – New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees  says he is scheduled to undergo surgery on his throwing thumb today, adding that he’ll dedicate himself to a rehabilitation process to get back to playing as quickly as he can. Brees tore a ligament in the right thumb when he made contact with Los Angeles defensive tackle Aaron Donald during the follow-through of a throw in Sunday’s loss to the Rams. Rehabilitation is estimated to take about six weeks, but that timeline could change after surgery.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton sat out yesterday’s practice and could miss Sunday’s game at Arizona after the 2015 league MVP re-aggravated a mid-foot sprain. Head coach Ron Rivera gave no timetable yesterday for Newton’s potential return. Rivera said backup Kyle Allen would make his second career NFL start Sunday if Newton isn’t able to play.

NEW YORK (AP) – New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton will be back today or tomorrow after rehabbing his latest injury. Stanton suffered a left biceps injury three games into the season and missed time with shoulder and calf issues before straining a knee ligament on June 25. He’s played in just nine games this year, hitting .290 with one home run and seven RBIs.

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh Pirates All-Star closer Felipe Vazquez has been arrested on charges of pornography and soliciting a child. Vazquez was taken into custody by State Police on one count of computer pornography/solicitation of a child and one count of providing obscene material to minors.

2 Hawkeyes Recognized by Big 10

University of Iowa kicker Keith Duncan and defensive back D.J. Johnson have been recognized as Big Ten Conference Players of the Week following Iowa’s 18-17 win at Iowa State.

Duncan was selected as Special Teams Player of the Week for connecting on a career-best four field goals. His final kick from 39 yards provided the margin of victory with 4:51 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Johnson was recognized as the co-freshman of the week after recording eight tackles, six solo and two assists, along with two pass break-ups in his first career start.

Beckham leads Browns…Big Ben out for season…Source says Brees to have thumb surgery

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – Odell Beckham Jr. caught six passes for 161 yards and a long touchdown as the Cleveland Browns whipped the New York Jets, 23-3. Beckham took a slant pass and outran the Jets’ defenders all the way to the end zone for an 89-yard TD that put Cleveland up 23-3 with 3 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter. His spectacular 33-yard, one-handed grab got Cleveland down to the Jets 4 and set up a field goal for the game’s first points.

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger  is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery on his aching right elbow, putting the offense in the hands of Mason Rudolph. Roethlisberger shook his arm after a pair of passes with the Steelers driving late in the first half of yesterday’s loss to Seattle and watched the second half from the sideline. Roethlisberger has been Pittsburgh’s starter since taking over for Tommy Maddox in Week 2 of the 2004 season as a rookie.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) – A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees  is expected to be out six weeks after tearing a ligament in his right thumb during yesterday’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Saints coach Sean Payton declined today to go into detail about Brees’ condition or even rule him out for this Sunday’s game in Seattle. The injury occurred when the thumb hit the hand of on-rushing defensive lineman Aaron Donald on the follow-through of a throw in the first quarter.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – New England Patriots receiver Antonio Brown’s availability is again in limbo this week with the NFL preparing to meet with the former trainer that has filed a civil lawsuit accusing the star receiver of rape and sexual assault. The NFL declined today to comment on the allegations against Brown or when it would speak with his accuser. But the league told the Patriots last week that it was opening an investigation into the matter.

UNDATED (AP) – Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo will wear a walking boot for the next five to seven days after an MRI showed he had a moderate lateral right ankle sprain. Rizzo had to be helped off the field after sustaining the injury while fielding a bunt in the third inning of Sunday’s 16-6 rout of the Pirates. The Cubs can ill afford an extended loss of Rizzo as they continue to play without shortstop Javier Baez, who is out for the rest of the regular season with a hairline fracture of his left thumb.

Truex wins NASCAR’s opening playoff race
LAS VEGAS (AP) – Martin Truex Jr. has won the opening race of NASCAR’s playoffs to earn an automatic berth into the second round.
Truex’s victory Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway was his series-best fifth of the season and again cemented Joe Gibbs Racing as the team to beat in this 10-race playoff series. JGR has 14 wins this season.
Truex chased down Kevin Harvick, who was slowed by traffic, to cut into Harvick’s lead and eventually make the pass for the win on the outside with 20 laps remaining.
The top nine finishers were all playoff contenders as Truex was followed by Harvick, Brad Keselowski, Chase Elliott, Ryan Blaney, Alex Bowman, William Byron, Kyle Larson and reigning series champion Joey Logano.

NFL Week 2 Recaps

UNDATED (AP) – Julio Jones hauled in a short pass on fourth down and took it 54 yards to the end zone with 2:10 remaining, giving the Atlanta Falcons a wild 24-20 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night.
The Falcons squandered a 17-6 lead against an injury plagued team that lost two of its top receivers, falling behind for the first time when Carson Wentz dove over from the 1 with 3:13 left to give the Eagles a 20-17 edge.
Philadelphia had a chance at the end when Wentz converted on fourth-and-14, somehow getting off a pass with a rusher in his chest that Nelson Agholor hauled in between two defenders for a 43-yard completion to the 18. But Atlanta held on, stopping Zach Ertz about a yard short of the marker on another fourth-down play inside the 10 to preserve a much-needed victory.
Jones bailed out Atlanta – and became Atlanta’s career leader in receiving yards with his winning score.

Elsewhere in the NFL:
– Dak Prescott carved up the Washington Redskins’ defense with his arm and his legs, completing 26 of 30 passes for 269 yards and three touchdowns and rushing for 69 yards in a 31-21 Dallas Cowboys victory Sunday to improve to 2-0. He’s the first Cowboys quarterback to compile seven touchdown passes in the first two games of the season since Don Meredith in 1966.
– Drew Brees injured his hand in the first quarter of the Los Angeles Rams’ 27-9 win over the New Orleans Saints. Jared Goff passed for 283 yards and a touchdown and rushed for another score for the unbeaten Rams. The much-anticipated rematch of last season’s NFC championship game changed dramatically when Brees was injured late in the first quarter.
– Patrick Mahomes bounced back from the first scoreless opening quarter of his career in the regular season by throwing four touchdown passes in a near-perfect second period that led the Kansas City Chiefs to a 28-10 victory over the Oakland Raiders.
– Eddy Pineiro’s 53-yard field goal with no time left lifted the Chicago Bears to a stunning 16-14 win over the Denver Broncos, who had taken the lead on a 2-point conversion with 31 seconds to go. The Bears benefited from a debatable flag and a 25-yard completion on fourth-and-15 to get into field-goal range.
– Antonio Brown caught a 20-yard touchdown pass in his debut for the New England Patriots, and they scored twice on interception returns in a two-minute fourth quarter span to beat the Miami Dolphins, 43-0. Brown finished with 56 yards on four receptions, all in the first half.
– Matthew Stafford threw a go-ahead, 31-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Golladay midway through the fourth quarter and Darius Slay made an interception in the end zone with 1:03 left to allow the Detroit Lions to beat the Los Angeles Chargers 13-10 despite a slew of mistakes.
– Jacoby Brissett  became the latest Indianapolis quarterback to top Tennessee, throwing a 4-yard touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton with 4:38 left to lead the Colts to a 19-17 victory in the Titans’ home opener.
– Russell Wilson threw for three touchdowns, including a 28-yard rainbow to DK Metcalf midway through the fourth quarter, and the Seattle Seahawks held off the Pittsburgh Steelers 28-26. The Steelers lost starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to a right elbow injury.
– Lamar Jackson threw for 272 yards and two touchdowns, ran for 120 yards and helped the Ravens beat the Cardinals 23-17 in a showdown between two of the league’s most exciting young quarterbacks.
– Justin Reid stopped Leonard Fournette on a 2-point conversion attempt with 36 seconds left and the Houston Texans held on to edge the Jacksonville Jaguars 13-12.
– Somewhat maligned Josh Allen ran for a touchdown, threw for another, and the Bills claimed the bragging rights of New York with a 28-14 victory over the Giants. Buffalo has its first 2-0 start since 2014.
– Aaron Rodgers threw two early touchdowns and the Green Bay Packers held on for a 21-16 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Rodgers completed nine of his first 10 passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns.
– Jimmy Garoppolo tied his career high with three touchdown passes and the San Francisco 49ers completed a sweet and satisfying week in the Buckeye State with a 41-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

National News Updates

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Atlanta Braves reinstated outfielder Nick Markakis from the 10-day injured list. Markakis, 35, missed 43 games with a fractured left wrist. He was listed in the starting lineup as the Braves opened a three-game series against the Nationals, playing his first game of the season in left field with Matt Joyce playing in right.

TORONTO (AP) – Yankees manager Aaron Boone says he’s “optimistic” both Edwin Encarnacion and Gary Sanchez will be able to return before the end of the season. Both sluggers were injured in separate games of a doubleheader victory over Detroit. The news was clearer for New York’s pitching staff. Right-hander Luis Severino is expected to make his season debut Tuesday against the Los Angeles Angels, and left-hander Jordan Montgomery will return from elbow surgery to face Toronto on Sunday.

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) – Kevin Chappell shot an 11-under 59 in the second round of A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier for the 11th sub-round 60 round in PGA Tour history. It was the first sub-60 round on the PGA Tour since Brandt Snedeker’s 59 at the 2018 Wyndham Championship. Chappell missed a 10-foot birdie putt on the par-4 ninth to fall a stroke short of Jim Furyk’s tour record. Furyk set the record in 2016 with a 58 in the final round of the Travelers Championship.

GRAND BLANC, Mich. (AP) – Scott McCarron, Retief Goosen and Tom Gillis shot 6-under 66 on Friday to share the first-round lead in the PGA Tour Champions’ Ally Challenge. McCarron, the Charles Schwab Cup points leader and a three-time winner this year, birdied the par-5 16th and par-3 17th in a bogey-free round at Warwick Hills, the longtime home of the PGA Tour’s defunct Buick Open.
