>>Brewers’ Rally Falls Short in Series Finale Loss to Pirates

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Jesus Aguilar and Domingo Santana hit back-to-back homers in the ninth inning but the Brewers rally fell short in a 3-2 loss to the Pirates Sunday at Miller Park.  Kevin Newman singled in the go-ahead run for Pittsburgh in the top of the ninth.  Milwaukee starter Jhoulys Chacin (JOH’-lees shuh-SEEN’) allowed just two runs on three hits over five innings to take the loss.  Pittsburgh right-hander Trevor Williams held the Crew to a pair of hits in six scoreless innings.  The Brewers are two-and-a-half games behind first-place Chicago in the National League Central, and hold a three-game lead in the N-L Wild Card standings.  The Cubs lost to the Reds Sunday.  Milwaukee opens a three-game set with Cincinnati tonight at home (Monday 7:10 P-M).  Southpaw Wade Miley gets the start against Reds left-hander Anthony DeSclafini.


>>Vikings Score 22 Fourth-Quarter Points to Force Overtime and Tie Packers

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Missed field goals are a large reason the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings settled for a 29-29 tie Sunday at Lambeau Field.  Vikings rookie kicker Daniel Carlson missed a game-winning, 35-yard attempt at the end of overtime, and a 49-yarder on Minnesota’s first possession of O-T.  Packers kicker Mason Crosby pushed a 52-yard attempt left of the upright at the end of regulation.  Minnesota rallied for 22 points in fourth quarter to force overtime.  The Vikings final drive was kept alive by a questionable roughing the passer call on Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews.  Minnesota’s Eric Kendricks was flagged for a similar hit on Aaron Rodgers in the first half.  Rodgers played in a knee brace and completed 30 of 42 passes for 285 yards and a touchdown to Davante Adams.  Vikings QB Kirk Cousins racked up 425 yards passing with four T-D’s, including three in the fourth quarter.  The Pack scored their first touchdown on a Geronimo Allison blocked punt that was recovered in the end zone by rookie defensive back Josh Jackson.  Green Bay travels to the Washington Redskins next Sunday.


>>Badgers fall From #6 to #16 & #18 Following B-Y-U Upset

(Madison, WI)  —  The University of Wisconsin football team is taking a tumble in the college football rankings after Saturday’s 24-21 home loss to B-Y-U.  The Badgers dropped from number six to 18 in the A-P Top 25 poll and sixth to 16th in the Coaches poll.  Wisconsin was the first top-ten team to be upset by an unranked team this season.  The Badgers were 21 point favorites over the Cougars but missed a game-tying field goal attempt with 36 seconds remaining in regulation.  It was Wisconsin’s first non-conference loss at Camp Randall since 2003.  The Badgers look to rebound when they open Big Ten play at the Iowa Hawkeyes Saturday night on Fox national television.


>>Ex-Badger Gordon Shines for Chargers in Win at Bills

(Orchard Park, NY)  —  Former Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon fueled the Los Angeles Chargers’ 31-20 win Sunday at the Buffalo Bills.  Gordon matched a career-high with three touchdowns, scoring on three straight drives as L-A built a 28-3 lead in the first half.  The ex-Badger had 28 yards on the ground for one T-D and caught six passes for 38 yards and two scores.

The strategic stature of starting pitchers has slowly diminished, with relievers assuming the responsibility left behind, and the bullpen guys are more readily making the Hall of […]
