NFL ROUNDUP: DOLPHINS PREVAIL IN SHOOTOUT WITH CHARGERS
Tyreek Hill’s 4-yard touchdown catch from Tua Tagovailoa with 1:45 to play served as the game-winner as the Miami Dolphins survived a back-and-forth fourth quarter and prevailed 36-34 over the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday in Inglewood, Calif.
Tagovailoa racked up 466 passing yards, three touchdowns and one interception on 28-of-45 passing, and Hill finished with 11 catches for 215 yards and two scores for Miami (1-0) in the thrilling season-opening victory.
The game saw seven lead changes and two ties, but the Chargers (0-1) had control early in the fourth quarter when Joshua Kelley punched it in from 2 yards out for a 31-27 lead with 14 minutes to go.
The Dolphins answered with Jason Sanders’ 45-yard field goal, and Justin Herbert led the Chargers on a 13-play, 68-yard drive that ate up 6:10 of game clock but only resulted in Cameron Dicker’s 25-yard field goal to make it 34-30.
Herbert went 23-for-33 passing for 228 yards and one touchdown. Los Angeles thrived in the run game, though, as Austin Ekeler took 16 carries for 117 yards and one touchdown, and Kelley added 16 for 91 yards and his score.
Eagles 25, Patriots 20
Jake Elliott made good on three second-half field goals to help Philadelphia ward off a comeback attempt by New England in Foxborough, Mass.
Elliott’s final kick came from 51 yards out with 5:33 left in the game. It proved to be critical when Mac Jones found Kendrick Bourne for an 11-yard touchdown just under two minutes later to pull New England within five. The Patriots couldn’t convert the two-point conversion, but they ended up getting the ball back twice. Both times, however, New England turned the ball over on downs.
Jalen Hurts completed 22 of 33 passes for 170 yards and a touchdown for Philadelphia. Jones threw for 316 yards, three touchdowns and one interception on 35-for-54 passing. The one interception was returned 70 yards for a score by Darius Slay for a 10-0 lead in the first quarter.
Packers 38, Bears 20
Jordan Love passed for 245 yards and three touchdowns, Aaron Jones tallied 127 total yards and two touchdowns and Green Bay rolled past host Chicago.
Romeo Doubs had two touchdown receptions for the Packers (1-0), who won decisively in their first game since parting ways with franchise icon Aaron Rodgers. Love looked comfortable in his second NFL start as he posted a 123.2 passer rating.
Justin Fields completed 24 of 37 passes for 216 yards, one touchdown and one interception for Chicago (0-1) — though the interception was returned 37 yards for a score by Packers linebacker Quay Walker.
Falcons 24, Panthers 10
Behind the rushing duo of Tyler Allgeier and Bijan Robinson and three forced turnovers by safety Jessie Bates III, Atlanta downed visiting Carolina.
Allgeier had 15 carries for a team-high 75 yards and two scores. Robinson, in his NFL debut, had 56 yards on 10 carries. He also recorded six receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown. Bates had 10 tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble in his Atlanta (1-0) debut after coming over from Cincinnati in the offseason.
Bryce Young, making his first NFL start, completed 20 of 38 passes for 146 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions for the Panthers (0-1).
Ravens 25, Texans 9
Lamar Jackson passed for 169 yards in his first game with a new five-year contract, Justice Hill ran for two touchdowns and Baltimore opened the season with a victory over visiting Houston.
Jackson completed 17 of 22 passes with one interception and a lost fumble. J.K. Dobbins had 22 yards and a touchdown on eight carries before departing early in the second half with a season-ending Achilles injury.
In his first NFL game, Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud passed for 242 yards and was sacked five times. The No. 2 overall draft pick out of Ohio State this past April was 28-of-44 passing and lost a fumble. Houston (0-1) outgained the Ravens (1-0) 268-265.
Browns 24, Bengals 3
Deshaun Watson ran for a score and threw for another as Cleveland beat visiting Cincinnati in a steady rain in both teams’ season opener.
Browns star running back Nick Chubb finished with 106 yards on 18 carries. Watson completed 16 of 29 passes for 154 yards, including a 3-yard TD pass to Harrison Bryant, followed by Watson’s two-point conversion run, for a 24-3 lead with 9:11 left in the fourth.
It was the sixth straight win for the Browns over the Bengals in Cleveland. Cincinnati quarterback Joe Burrow, fresh from signing his league-record five-year, $275 million extension on Saturday, finished just 14-of-31 passing for 82 yards.
Jaguars 31, Colts 21
A 14-point fourth quarter flurry helped Jacksonville spoil the debut of rookie Anthony Richardson and escape Indianapolis with a victory.
Jacksonville (1-0) owned the fourth quarter, flipping momentum for good with Tyson Campbell’s interception of Richardson to set up Travis Etienne’s 26-yard touchdown run. That completed a swing from a 21-17 deficit to a 31-21 lead thanks to 14 points in a span of 66 seconds.
Trevor Lawrence passed for 241 yards and two touchdowns and Etienne had 77 rushing yards. Jaguars defensive end Josh Allen had a career-best three sacks. Richardson, who was sacked four times, had 40 rushing yards and a touchdown along with a TD pass. He completed 24 of 37 passes for 223 yards for the Colts (0-1).
Buccaneers 20, Vikings 17
Chase McLaughlin made a 57-yard field goal to break a tie with 5:10 remaining in the fourth quarter, and Tampa Bay held on to defeat Minnesota in Minneapolis.
Baker Mayfield completed 21 of 34 passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns in his debut for Tampa Bay (1-0), which played its first game since Tom Brady’s retirement. Mike Evans and Trey Palmer had one touchdown catch apiece.
Kirk Cousins completed 33 of 44 passes for 344 yards, two touchdowns and one interception for Minnesota (0-1). Justin Jefferson had nine catches for a game-high 150 yards, and Jordan Addison had a touchdown catch in his NFL debut.
Saints 16, Titans 15
Derek Carr passed to Rashid Shaheed for the game’s only touchdown and New Orleans intercepted Ryan Tannehill three times in a victory over visiting Tennessee in the season opener for both teams.
Carr, who signed with New Orleans as a free agent in the offseason after nine seasons with the Raiders, completed 23 of 33 passes for 305 yards with one interception and teamed with Shaheed for a 19-yard tiebreaking score in the third quarter. Tannehill completed 16 of 34 passes for 198 yards.
The Saints drove 60 yards on their first possession of the third quarter, and rookie Blake Grupe kicked a 52-yard field goal to tie the score at 9. Carr threw the scoring pass to Shaheed for the Saints’ first lead, 16-9, with 1:23 left in the third. Nick Folk kicked two field goals to bring the Titans within one, but New Orleans closed it out.
49ers 30, Steelers 7
Brock Purdy threw two touchdown passes to Brandon Aiyuk, Christian McCaffrey scored on a long run and San Francisco rolled to a 30-7 victory over host Pittsburgh.
Purdy completed 19 of 29 passes for 220 yards and McCaffrey rushed for 152 yards on 22 carries as the 49ers (1-0) controlled the contest. Aiyuk caught eight passes for 129 yards.
Kenny Pickett was 31-of-46 passing for 232 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions for the Steelers (0-1), who were outgained 391-239. The 49ers sacked Pickett five times. T.J. Watt responded by recording three sacks and forcing two fumbles (recovering one) during a standout performance for Pittsburgh.
Commanders 20, Cardinals 16
In its first game with new owner Josh Harris, Washington held off Arizona before a sold-out crowd in Landover, Md., in the season opener for both teams.
Sam Howell, making the second start of his career, completed 19 of 31 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown, giving the Commanders a 17-16 lead on a 6-yard run with 11:48 remaining in regulation.
Cardinals quarterback Joshua Dobbs was starting his third career game after being acquired in a trade from the Browns on Aug. 24. Along with a strip sack that led to the go-ahead touchdown, he fumbled a snap on first-and-15 that was recovered by defensive lineman Abdullah Anderson and resulted in a 33-yard field goal by Joey Slye for the final points of the game.
Raiders 17, Broncos 16
Jimmy Garoppolo passed for two touchdowns in his Las Vegas debut, and the Raiders spoiled Sean Payton’s first game as Denver’s coach with a one-point win over the host Broncos.
Jakobi Meyers had nine catches for 81 yards and two scores in his first game with the Raiders (1-0), who beat the Broncos for the seventh straight time. Meyers left late in the contest to be examined for a possible concussion.
Payton’s squad fell just short, partially due to Will Lutz’s missed extra point after the team’s first touchdown. Russell Wilson completed 27 of 34 passes for 177 yards and two touchdowns for Denver (0-1).
Rams 30, Seahawks 13
Kyren Williams rushed for the first two touchdowns of his career as visiting Los Angeles scored 23 unanswered points in the second half to defeat injury-riddled Seattle in the opening week of the NFL season.
Cam Akers also rushed for a score and Matthew Stafford completed 24 of 38 passes for 334 yards for the Rams, who went 5-12 last season as the defending Super Bowl champions. Rookie Puka Nacua, a fifth-round pick, made 10 catches for 119 yards.
Kenneth Walker III rushed for a game-high 64 yards and Geno Smith was 16-of-26 passing for 112 yards and a touchdown for the Seahawks, who ran 14 plays from scrimmage for just 12 yards in the second half. That was due in large part to losing both of their starting offensive tackles to injuries.

MICHIGAN STATE SUSPENDS COACH MEL TUCKER AFTER ALLEGATIONS HE SEXUALLY HARASSED A RAPE SURVIVOR
(AP) — Michigan State suspended football coach Mel Tucker without pay on Sunday, less than 24 hours after allegations became public in a USA Today report that he sexually harassed activist and rape survivor Brenda Tracy during a phone call last year.
University President Teresa K. Woodruff and athletic director Alan Haller announced the suspension pending the results of an outside investigation into the allegations.
The university hired a Title IX attorney to investigate Tracy’s complaint and the investigation concluded on July 25. A hearing is scheduled for the week of Oct. 5 determine if Tucker violated the school’s sexual harassment and exploitation policy.
When the investigative report was finished, Tucker was told not to have contact with Tracy and that Haller would increase his oversight of him and the program, Haller said at a news conference Sunday evening.
Haller said he didn’t immediately suspend Tucker in July because the entire process of the investigation was not completed.
Secondary coach Harlon Barnett will serve as the team’s interim coach and former coach Mark Dantonio was named associate head coach while Tucker awaits his fate with the program.
“I called coach Dantonio this morning and his response was, ‘Alan, whatever you need,’” Haller recalled.
Tucker is in the third year of a $95 million, 10-year contract and if he is fired for cause, the school would not have to pay him what’s remaining on his deal.
Michigan State may fire Tucker for cause if he “engages in any conduct which constitutes moral turpitude or which, in the University’s sole judgement, would tend to bring public disrespect, contempt or ridicule upon the university,” according to his contract. The school also was able to suspend Tucker, without pay, if he “materially breaches” his contract.
Messages seeking comment were left Sunday by The Associated Press with Tucker, Tracy and Tucker’s attorney, Jennifer Belveal.
Tucker is the second Big Ten football coach to find himself at the center of a scandal in three months.
Northwestern fired longtime coach Pat Fitzgerald in July after an investigation by the school revealed hazing in the football program. Fitzgerald initially was suspended for two weeks during the preseason, but Northwestern’s president decided later to dismiss him with cause after details of the hazing allegations became public through media reports.
Michigan State is not far removed from another sexual misconduct scandal, one involving former sports doctor Larry Nassar. He was sentenced in 2018 to 40 to 175 years in prison after he admitted to molesting some of the nation’s top gymnasts for years under the guise of medical treatment. He was accused of sexually assaulting hundreds of women and girls.
“This morning’s news may sound like the MSU of old,” Woodruff said. “It is not.”
Woodruff said today’s version of the school takes accusations seriously and investigates them rigorously while providing resources it did not in the past.
Tracy became friends with Tucker over her advocacy work, but that relationship took a turn in April 2022 when Tucker masturbated during a phone call with her, according to USA Today.
“The idea that someone could know me and say they understand my trauma but then re-inflict that trauma on me is so disgusting to me, it’s hard for me to even wrap my mind around it,” Tracy told the newspaper. “It’s like he sought me out just to betray me.”
Tucker acknowledged to investigators last spring that he masturbated during the phone call with Tracy, but he said they had consensual “phone sex.”
The 51-year-old Tucker is married and has two children.
“Ms. Tracy’s distortion of our mutually consensual and intimate relationship into allegations of sexual exploitation has really affected me,” Tucker wrote in a March 22 letter to the Title IX investigator. “I am not proud of my judgment and I am having difficulty forgiving myself for getting into this situation, but I did not engage in misconduct by any definition.”
The Spartans beat Richmond on Saturday to improve to 2-0 in Tucker’s fourth season with the school. Tucker is one of college football’s highest paid coaches. He is 20-14 in three-plus seasons at Michigan State, which hired him after he went 5-7 in one year at Colorado.
Shortly after Dantonio retired in February 2020, then-athletic director Bill Beekman hired Tucker, who was a graduate assistant at Michigan State for Nick Saban.
The Spartans were 2-5 in Tucker’s first season, which was shortened by the COVID-19 pandemic, and won 11 games in 2021, with Wake Forest transfer Kenneth Walker becoming a breakout star during a surprising season in which Tucker was given a raise.
Michigan State was 5-7 in 2022, a season marred by charges and suspensions for several players for their roles in a postgame fracas in the Michigan Stadium tunnel.
Tracy is known for her work with college teams, educating athletes about sexual violence. She has spoken to Michigan State’s football team multiple times.
AP TOP 25: TEXAS JUMPS TO NO. 4 AFTER BEATING ‘BAMA; PAC-12 SETS CONFERENCE HIGH WITH 8 RANKED TEAMS
(AP) — Texas jumped seven spots to No. 4 in The Associated Press college football poll on Sunday after beating Alabama, and the Pac-12 became just the second conference to place as many as eight teams in an AP Top 25.
Georgia received 55 first-place votes to remain the clear No. 1. Michigan was No. 2, with two-first place votes. No. 3 Florida State received three first-place votes and moved up a spot.
Texas received two-first place votes after its biggest regular-season victory in years. The Longhorns are in the top five for the first time since starting the 2010 season at No. 5 and have their highest ranking since finishing No. 2 after losing the BCS championship game to Alabama in 2009.
Behind quarterback Quinn Ewers, Texas became the first team to beat Alabama by double-digits on its home field under coach Nick Saban.
The loss dropped Alabama seven spots to No. 10, its lowest ranking since early last November, when the Crimson Tide also were 10th.
Southern California moved up a spot to No. 5, giving the top five representation from each Power Five conference for the first time since Sept. 24, 2017. That top five was Alabama (SEC), Clemson (Atlantic Coast Conference), Oklahoma (Big 12), Penn State (Big Ten) and USC.
No conference has more teams than the Pac-12, which is in its last season with its current membership before 10 of its schools depart for other leagues in 2024.
Only the Southeastern Conference ever had placed as many eight teams in single AP Top 25, doing it 21 times with a record 10 in September 2015.
In this week’s AP Top 25, Washington is No. 8, Utah is 12th, Oregon is 13th and Oregon State is No. 16. Moving into the rankings are Washington State at No. 23 and UCLA at No. 24.
The Pac-12’s previous high was six ranked teams, achieved multiple times including last week.
Oregon State and Washington State are the only members of the conference committed to it beyond this school year and would like to preserve the Pac-12, but whether its Power Five status can preserved remains to be seen.
After Washington State beat Wisconsin on Saturday night, Cougars coach Jake Dickert noted his school’s unfortunate position.
“We belong in the Power Five,” Dickert told ESPN among a swarm of Cougars, who rushed the field in Pullman.
No. 6 Ohio State, No. 7 Penn State and No. 9 Notre Dame rounded out the top 10.
Alabama’s streak of top-10 rankings is now at 128, which dates to the 2015 season.
The Crimson Tide’s streak is the second-longest in AP poll history behind Miami’s 137 from 1985-93.
The next five longest streaks of appearing in the top five:
– Clemson, 97 from 2015-21.
– Nebraska, 96 from 1993-98.
– Florida, 81 from 1992-97.
UCLA and Washington State were two of four teams to move into the rankings this week.
– No. 22 Miami is ranked for the first time since last September, when it fell out of the AP Top 25 after losing at Texas A&M. The Hurricanes beat the Aggies on Saturday to move back in and knock out A&M.
Miami and Florida State are both ranked in the regular season for the first time since Sept. 18, 2017.
– No. 25 Iowa slipped back in after falling out last week. The Hawkeyes beat Iowa State on Saturday.
Falling out along with Texas A&M were Wisconsin, which lost at Washington State, and Tulane, which lost at home to Mississippi.
Clemson also slipped out of the rankings, ending a streak of 21 straight appearances. The Tigers barely held on to a spot in the poll at No. 25 last week following an opening loss to Duke. Their rout of Charleston Southern on Saturday wasn’t enough to keep them ranked.
With Tulane dropping out, there are no ranked teams from conferences outside the Power Five. The last time that happened was a little less than a year ago, though three Group of Five conference teams ended up finishing the season ranked.
Pac-12 – 8 (Nos. 5, 8, 12, 13, 16, 18, 23, 24).
SEC – 5 (Nos. 1, 10, 11, 14, 17).
ACC – 4 (Nos. 3, 20, 21, 22).
Big Ten – 4 (Nos. 2, 6, 7, 25).
Big 12 – 3 (Nos. 4, 15, 19).
Independent – 1 (No. 9).
No games match ranked teams this week.

SCOTT DIXON RALLIES TO WIN INDYCAR SEASON FINALE AND GIVE GANASSI 1-2 FINISH IN FINAL STANDINGS
MONTEREY, Calif. (AP) By the time Scott Dixon turned his season around, it was too late to beat teammate Alex Palou for the IndyCar championship.
But it was good enough to affirm Dixon’s legacy as the greatest driver of his generation.
The six-time IndyCar champion won the season finale Sunday at Laguna Seca – his first win at the permanent California road course, 56th of his career and third in the final four races of the season. His turnaround last month ensured that Dixon’s streak of 19 consecutive seasons with at least one win remaining intact.
“It’s always nice to finish the year like that,” said Dixon.
Palou became the first driver in nearly 20 years to clinch the IndyCar title before the season finale with his victory last weekend in Portland. Palou won his second title in three years with last week’s win, his fifth of the season. Palou’s title is the 15th in IndyCar for Chip Ganassi Racing.
Dixon had been mathematically eligible to challenge Palou for the title until the Portland victory. He was still guaranteed to finish second in the standings no matter what happened in Sunday’s finale.
“It’s just a shame that Palou decided to lead the championship by too many points, and it became a bit boring on the championship side,” Dixon said. “I don’t think I’ve ever been part of a situation where you come into the last race and you can’t fight really much for anything in the championship. We were locked into second. Alex was locked obviously for the championship, which was quite bizarre.
“Everybody’s stress level was a lot lower. You could all just kind of fight for the win. … Everybody was just going for a win because everybody was trying a bit of everything throughout the day.”
Dixon’s win moved him within 11 of AJ Foyt’s all-time record.
Scott McLaughlin, like Dixon from New Zealand, finished second for Team Penske and was followed by Palou, who scored 10 podiums in 17 races this season.
Will Power of Team Penske finished fourth and ended his run as IndyCar champion by snapping a 16-year streak of winning at least one race. Callum Ilott of Juncos Hollinger Racing tied his career-best finish of fifth and was followed by Christian Lundgaard of Rahal Letterman Lanigan.
Alexander Rossi of Arrow McLaren was seventh and followed by Marcus Armstrong, who won rookie of the year honors for Ganassi. Pato O’Ward of McLaren was ninth and Ryan Hunter-Reay of Ed Carpenter Racing finished 10th.
The win for Dixon was the first of his career at Laguna Seca and he overcame an early-race penalty for avoidable contact to cycle into the win in a sloppy race slowed by eight cautions for 35 laps. The lengthy yellows took such a toll on the race that the pace car ran out of gas and needed to be refueled with more than 30 laps remaining.
“It’s a credit to the team, they’ve been executing like that all season,” Dixon said. “But we won. That’s all that matters. We won.”
Ganassi became the first team owner to win the championship and top rookie honors in the same season. Armstrong won the rookie title despite skipping the five oval races on the schedule. He signed an extension to return to the team next year and will run the full schedule, including ovals.
“To be first and second in the points, and then rookie of the year for Marcus Armstrong, I mean, Alex, Dixon, what a season for the whole team,” Ganassi said.
Colton Herta finished 23rd and was spun off course by Helio Castroneves in a car custom painted to resemble the one Herta’s father, Bryan, drove to the 1998 win at Laguna Seca. The spin cemented a winless season for the younger Herta, who started the year with a contract extension from Andretti Global that many believe made the 23-year-old the highest-paid driver in IndyCar.
Herta said he’d give himself a “D-minus” grade on his season and said even if he’d won Sunday’s finale it wouldn’t be enough to salvage a disastrous year.
Chevrolet, which won the Indianapolis 500 with Josef Newgarden, clinched the manufacturer championship. Honda won the driver championship with Palou and Ganassi.
NOVAK DJOKOVIC WINS THE US OPEN FOR HIS 24TH GRAND SLAM TITLE BY BEATING DANIIL MEDVEDEV
NEW YORK (AP) Novak Djokovic emerged from an exhilarating and exhausting U.S. Open final with a 24th Grand Slam title on Sunday night, using every ounce of his energy and some serve-and-volley guile to get past Daniil Medvedev 6-3, 7-6 (5), 6-3 in a match that was more closely contested than the straight-set score indicated.
Djokovic, a 36-year-old from Serbia, moved one major singles title in front of Serena Williams to become the first player to win 24 in the Open era, which began in 1968. Margaret Court also collected a total of 24, but 13 of those came before professionals were admitted to the Slam events.
“It obviously means the world to me,” said Djokovic, who will return to No. 1 in the rankings on Monday.
There were moments, particularly in the 1-hour, 44-minute second set that was as much about tenacity as talent, when Djokovic appeared to be faltering. After some of the most grueling points – and there were many – he would lean over with hands on knees or use his racket for support or pause to stretch his legs. After one, he dropped to his back on the court and stayed down for a bit as the crowd roared.
He allowed Medvedev to come within a single point of taking that set while returning at 6-5. Djokovic rushed the net behind his serve, and while Medvedev had an opening for a backhand passing shot he did not come through.
That was a key adjustment: When Djokovic was looking more bedraggled, he turned to serve-and-volleying, not his usual sort of tactic, to great success. He won 20 of 22 points he played that way, and 37 of 44 overall on the points when he went to the net.
This triumph against Medvedev, the opponent who beat him in the 2021 final at Flushing Meadows to stop a bid for the first men’s calendar-year Grand Slam in more than a half-century, made Djokovic the oldest male champion at the U.S. Open in the Open era.
“First of all, Novak, I want to ask: What are you still doing here? Come on,” Medvedev joked during the trophy presentation.
Djokovic’s fourth championship in New York, where he was unable to compete a year ago because he isn’t vaccinated against COVID-19, goes alongside his 10 trophies from the Australian Open, seven from Wimbledon and three from the French Open, extending his lead on the men’s Slam list. Rafael Nadal, who has been sidelined since January with a hip problem that required surgery, is next with 22; Roger Federer, who announced his retirement a year ago, finished with 20.
When it was over, Medvedev tapped Djokovic on the chest as they chatted at the net. Djokovic flung his racket away, put his arms up and then knelt on the court, with his head bowed. And then the celebration was on. First he found his daughter for a hug. His son and wife came next, along with his team.
Soon, Djokovic was donning a shirt with “24” and “Mamba Forever” written on it as a tribute to the late NBA star Kobe Bryant, who wore that jersey number. And on top of that went a white jacket with the same significant number stamped on the chest.
As good as ever, Djokovic went 27-1 in the sport’s most prestigious events this season: The lone blemish was a loss to Carlos Alcaraz in the final at Wimbledon in July. Djokovic will rise to No. 1 in the rankings on Monday, overtaking Alcaraz, who was the defending champion at Flushing Meadows but was eliminated by No. 3 Medvedev.
At the start Sunday, with the Arthur Ashe Stadium retractable roof shut because of rain in the forecast, Djokovic was comfortable as can be. No sign of the occasion weighing on him, no trace of the tension he acknowledged briefly arose late in his semifinal against unseeded American Ben Shelton.
His exemplary movement good as ever, every stroke just so, Djokovic came out as his best self. He grabbed 12 of the first 16 points – three via aces perfectly placed, and with pace, and four via exchanges that lasted 10 strokes or more – along the way to leads of 3-0 and 4-1.
Medvedev, in contrast, seemed tight, jittery, the looping swings of his white racket breaking down repeatedly, whether on a trio of double-faults in the opening set or during the lengthier points, other than on one 37-shot back-and-forth that ended when Djokovic blinked, stumbling as he flubbed a backhand.
Beyond that, though, Djokovic was as reliable as a metronome, anticipating nearly everything headed his way and scurrying this way and that to retrieve and respond, as is his wont.
And the fans sure were appropriately appreciative, which has not always been the case over Djokovic’s career. On this afternoon-into-evening, support came from thousands, not only the folks invoking his two-syllable nickname while chanting, “Let’s go, No-le, let’s go!” or those in his guest box, including Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey, one of many A-listers on hand.
When he got to set point in the first on a miscue by Medvedev, Djokovic showed his first real bit of emotion, raising a fist and turning to the corner where his entourage had jumped to their feet. When another Medvedev miss ended the set, Djokovic simply exhaled and strode to the sideline.
He relies on analytics and what a foe’s tendencies are. He leans on instinct and a masterful ability to read opposing serves and groundstrokes. On Sunday, his blue shoes carried him right where he needed to be, more often than not, and his flexibility – turning, bending, contorting, stretching, sliding, defending with his back to the net, even – allowed him to keep the ball in play, when required, and create flip-the-switch offense, too, if desired.
Medvedev plays a similar type of tennis, and their mirror images would elongate points for 25 shots, 35 shots, more.
Was Djokovic perfect? No. But, wow, he came close in sections, and he was absolutely good enough throughout to win, as he so often is.
******TOP INDIANA RELEASES/NEWS*******
COLTS EXIT WEEK 1 DISAPPOINTED IN LOSS TO JAGUARS, BUT ENCOURAGED BY ANTHONY RICHARDSON’S PROGRESS
First things first: Anthony Richardson said he’s okay.
Richardson exited the Colts’ 31-21 Week 1 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars late in the fourth quarter with an apparent injury, but after the game quickly dispelled any concern about his status.
“I’m all right,” Richardson said. “More so hurt that we lost than my knee, but other than that, I’m good. I’ve just got to get to the drawing board and focus on next week.”
Richardson, in his NFL regular season debut, completed 24 of 37 passes (65 percent) for 223 yards with a touchdown, an interception and 10 rushing attempts for 40 yards with a score. At 21 years old, he became the youngest quarterback in Colts history to start a game – but, as he has ever since landing in Indianapolis this spring, displayed a wise-beyond-his-years level of poise throughout Sunday’s game at Lucas Oil Stadium.
“He played very well and everything that he did, we all knew he was going to do that,” wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr., who caught Richardson’s first career touchdown pass, said. “He’s been solid from Day 1 and he’s not rattled. The thing about this whole season is we got 16 more (games). It’s good that he’s not rattled and we’re going to go back and watch the film and look at it and see what we need to do to get better and change the way that game ended.”
The Colts held a 21-17 lead into the fourth quarter with Richardson playing largely mistake-averse football. But facing a three-point deficit with about five minutes to go, Richardson was intercepted by cornerback Tyson Campbell on second and 10 – and the Jaguars struck for what was an effectively game-sealing touchdown a few plays later when running back Travis Etienne Jr. darted 26 yards into the end zone.
Both head coach Shane Steichen and Richardson took responsibility for the interception after the game.
“I’ll take fault for that interception right there,” Steichen said. “… It was a Cover 2 deal and we didn’t have a great route called there and got to be better there.”
Richardson said he thought he could get his throw over the head of Campbell and to tight end Mo Alie-Cox, but he didn’t put enough arc on it, allowing the Jaguars’ cornerback to snag it.
“That’s one of our good plays,” Richardson said. “We trust that play a lot, so we called it. I saw the corner, but I just threw it a little too flat, and we weren’t trying to attack him the whole game, but I saw that matchup and I thought I could get it over his head, but I threw it a little too flat. But he made a good play. Hopefully it doesn’t happen again. We just grow from it.”
Steichen was pleased with Richardson’s response to that interception, though. He drove the Colts down to the Jaguars’ one-yard line before being forced out of the game; while that possession didn’t end with points, it still was illustrative of Richardson’s poise and even-keel nature.
“You wouldn’t have even known he threw an interception,” wide receiver Alec Pierce said. “I think he did a good job, even with other people who might have missed a play, he did a good job of just being positive on the sideline and bringing people up. He did kind of mention something to me and was just like next play, let’s go. Like, play one play as it goes.”
Among the things the Colts and Richardson can build off: The Colts had four completions of 15 or more yards despite the Jaguars frequently showing two-high safety looks to take away deep shots. And Richardson consistently took what was there instead of forcing something down the field, keeping the ball out of harm’s way outside of the interception to Campbell.
“I thought overall his performance was good,” Steichen said. “There’s probably some things we’ve got to clean up, but I thought he did a nice job.”
Where the Colts know they need to improve, then, is in key situations – third down, fourth down and red zone. The Colts converted two of 12 third downs and one of five fourth downs, and turned only one of their three red zone possessions into points (a Richardson touchdown rush).
While the Colts’ defense shut Jacksonville down on third down (3/12) and fourth down (1/3), the Jaguars scored touchdowns on all three of their possessions inside the 20. In a 10-point game, those were a major deciding factor.
And those plays were why, ultimately, Richardson was more focused on the sting of losing than any encouragement from his first regular season game.
“We didn’t win, so I didn’t do good enough,” Richardson said. “But first game, first experience, felt good just being out there with my teammates. The energy was good. We’ve just got to clean some things up, including myself, but it was fun out there just being back out there playing football.”
OWINGS HOMERS IN SERIES-CLINCHING VICTORY
INDIANAPOLIS – Extra-base hits off the bat of Chris Owings and Ryan Vilade led the Indianapolis Indians in a 5-2 series-clinching victory over the Toledo Mud Hens on Sunday afternoon at Victory Field.
Trailing by one in the fifth inning, the Indians (63-73, 30-32) took the lead against Brenan Hanifee (L, 2-8) with a pair of doubles. With one out, Owings doubled and later scored on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Canaan Smith-Njigba. One batter later, Vilade drove in Smith-Njigba with a long double into the right-field corner.
Indianapolis continued to pile on, scoring on RBI singles by Grant Koch and major league rehabber Henry Davis in the sixth and eighth innings, respectively. Davis, playing in the second game of his rehab assignment, reached base safely in all five of his plate appearances with three singles and two walks.
Owings began the scoring with his second leadoff home run and Indianapolis’ fourth this season. The Mud Hens (65-72, 32-31) then tied the game on three consecutive singles in the top of the third before taking the lead on a fourth-inning RBI single by Nick Maton.
After Wil Crowe took the bump for Indy to start, Beau Sulser (W, 3-1) entered in the fifth inning and began a stretch of four scoreless innings for the bullpen. He surrendered one hit, Kyle Nicolas struck out four of five total batters faced and Osvaldo Bido (S, 2) earned his second career save this week.
Owings went 3-for-5 to join Davis in leading the Indianapolis offense.
The Indians begin a six-game road trip at Omaha on Tuesday afternoon at 1:05 PM ET. Neither team has named a starter for the series opener.
GAME RECAP: FEVER CLOSE OUT 2023 WITH HOME WIN AGAINST LYNX
INDIANAPOLIS – Kelsey Mitchell’s 24 points along with double-doubles from Aliyah Boston and NaLyssa Smith led the Indiana Fever (13-27) to an 87-72 victory against the Minnesota Lynx on Sunday afternoon at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in the final game of the regular season. With Sunday’s win, Indiana reached 13 regular season wins for the second time since 2016. Indiana also won three games against Minnesota in a regular season for the first time in franchise history.
Mitchell’s 24 points on 8-of-18 shooting from the floor and 3-of-7 shooting from beyond the arc guided Indiana to the victory. Mitchell recorded her 28th game scoring at least 15 points this season, which allowed her to surpass Tamika Catchings in 2003 to set a franchise record for most 15+ point games in a season. Boston added 19 points on 9-of-13 shooting from the court for her 11th double-double of the season as she also pulled down 12 rebounds.
With her 13th double-double of the season of 16 points and 11 rebounds, Smith set a franchise record for most double-doubles in a season after being tied with Catchings in 2002 and Teaira McCowan in 2021 with 12.
Erica Wheeler contributed 10 points, five rebounds, three assists and three steals, while rookie guard Grace Berger pitched in nine points, two assists and two steals.
Highlighted by Mitchell’s career-high five steals, Indiana recorded a season-high 13 steals. In addition, Indiana outscored Minnesota, 48-28, in the paint.
Indiana was guided to its highest scoring first quarter of the season by Mitchell’s 11 points and Smith’s nine points, both on 4-of-5 shooting from the court. In addition, Grace Berger added five points on a perfect 2-of-2 shooting clip, while Boston also contributed five points. After the first five minutes of play that featured four lead changes, the Fever took possession of the lead and held it through the remainder of the quarter after going on a 23-9 scoring run. The Fever ended the first frame leading 32-22 after shooting 72.2 percent (13-of-18) from the floor.
Indiana shot 2-of-7 from the floor to begin the second quarter, allowing the Lynx to reduce the deficit to five points on one occasion. Indiana responded by making five consecutive shots to move back in front. Mitchell’s eight points combined with Smith and Wheeler’s five points each helped Indiana record its highest scoring half of the season leading 56-44.
After being outscored, 19-7, in the third quarter and entering the final frame tied with the Lynx, 63-63, Boston led Indiana to the win as she notched 12 points in the fourth quarter on a 6-of-8 shooting clip. Indiana held Minnesota to only two field goals on 13 attempts in the remaining 10 minutes of play, the Fever outscored the Lynx, 24-9, to close out their final regular season matchup with a victory.
The Lynx were led by Kayla McBride’s 24 points and Napheesa Collier’s 23 points. In addition, Collier rounded out her double-double with 10 rebounds. Diamond Miller followed behind with 11 points, and Dorka Juhász pulled down 10 rebounds.

SECOND-HALF RALLY POWERS BOILERMAKERS
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – A two-goal second half propelled the Purdue soccer team to a 2-1 comeback victory over Western Kentucky on Sunday afternoon at Folk Field.
In the final non-conference game of the regular season, junior forward Megan Hutchinson scored the game-winning goal in the 69th minute, after sophomore forward Kayla Budish started the rally with the tying goal in the 58th. The visitors took an early lead in the 10th minute but were held goalless for the final 80 minutes.
The Boilermakers (3-5-0) had 14 shots, six on target, and the Hilltoppers (1-2-5) had eight shots, five on goal. Both teams had a pair of corner kicks, one in each half, and Purdue had nine fouls to WKU’s five.
The two goals allowed by Western Kentucky are tied for its second-most in a game this season. Purdue’s second-half goals were the first against WKU in more than three matches, after the Hilltoppers’ last three games were 0-0 draws.
The Boilermakers improve to 2-0-0 in the all-time series with Sunday’s win.
Budish netted her team-high-tying third goal in 2023 and seventh of her career, as she is one goal shy of matching her total of four from her freshman campaign a year ago. Hutchinson came off the bench to score her second career goal, both coming this season, and she notched her first career game-winner. Budish now leads the team with eight points on the year and Hutchinson is tied for second, with six.
Junior midfielder Abigail Roy assisted on both goals for her second and third assists in 2023. She now has five in her career, and the three assists this year is second-most on the team.
Senior midfielder Emily Mathews led the Boilermakers with three shots, while she and Budish each had two shots on goal. Senior goalkeeper Charlotte Cyr made four saves, as did her WKU counterpart.
Mathews opened the game with a shot in the third minute before the Hilltoppers took a 1-0 lead in the 10th minute. Kayla Meyer scored unassisted on the visitors’ first shot of the contest.
Purdue had the next five chances in the following 15-plus minutes, but could not get the quick-response goal. Mathews and Budish each had opportunities that were saved, along with junior midfielder Victoria Kevdzija, whose shot in the 26th minute came less than three minutes after she entered the game.
Two saves by Cyr followed before senior forward Zoie Alen had a chance from 25 yards away. However, after a long run on the left side, her shot just missed the top-left corner of the goal.
As Purdue continued to look for the equalizer, Hutchinson had a shot blocked and Kevdzija sent a shot wide. That chance in the 40th minute was the last for either team in the half.
The home side held a 9-3 advantage in shots and a 4-3 edge in shots on goal in the opening 45 minutes.
Western Kentucky had two of the first three shots in the second half. The first nearly extended the lead, but it ricocheted off the right post in the 51st minute. The second WKU chance was blocked, after Mathews had a shot of her own blocked from inside the 18.
Budish then got the equalizer at 57:10 to make it a 1-1 game. A cross into the box was punched out by WKU’s keeper, but the ball bounced to Roy 30 yards out. She then found Budish to her left at the top of the penalty box. Wide open with plenty of space, Budish fired a shot into the top-right corner of the net. The right-footed strike was perfectly placed beyond the hands of the diving goalkeeper.
Cyr made her third save of the game in the 61st minute before Hutchinson scored the game-winner at 68:01 to give the Boilermakers their first lead at 2-1.
The play began with a clearance from inside the penalty area by Western Kentucky, which went to senior midfielder Nicole Kevdzija. She then passed the ball up to Roy, who quickly sent it up into the 18 to Hutchinson. On the right side, Hutchinson got the ball, quickly turned to her left and arced a shot over the Hilltopper keeper and into the back of the net.
Along with Roy’s second assist of the day, Nicole Kevdzija picked up her first of the year and fourth career assist.
Western Kentucky had a chance to equal the score in the final minutes, but Cyr made a save in the 87th after a corner kick, and the Boilermaker defense forced a shot wide in the 89th.
Both teams had five shots in the second half, with four shots on target for Purdue and none on goal for the Hilltoppers.
Up next, Big Ten play begins in one week when Purdue welcomes No. 20 Northwestern to Folk Field on Sunday, September 17. The top-25 opponent will be the Boilermakers’ fourth ranked foe in their first nine games of the season. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. ET, and admission is free for all fans.

*******IUPUI WOMEN’S SOCCER*******
WOMEN’S SOCCER RALLIES FOR 3-1 HOME WIN OVER LINDENWOOD
INDIANAPOLIS – The IUPUI women’s soccer team scored three times in just more than three minutes late in its 3-1 win over Lindenwood on Sunday (Sept. 10), extending its current winning streak to three-in-a-row. Sam Slimak, Emma Antoine and Avery Bangert scored in succession, beginning with Slimak’s penalty kick in the 79th minute.
Antoine netted the go-ahead goal in the 81st minute off an assist from Bangert and Bangert sealed the scoring in the 82nd minute. Lindenwood came in having not allowed more than two goals in any game this season.
IUPUI (6-2) finished with a 29-14 shot advantage and 14-4 margin in shots on goal against the Lions. However, Lindenwood (2-4-1) held a 1-0 lead late in the contest after Georgia Pardalos tallied the game’s first goal in the 37th minute.
As frustration of missed chances was mounting down the stretch, IUPUI finally broke through in the 79th minute when freshman Caroline Kelley drew a foul well inside the Lindenwood 18-yard box. Slimak jumped at the opportunity to take the penalty and buried the attempt for her second score of the year. Moments later, Kelley sprung Bangert forward in between a pair of Lindenwood defenders. Her initial attempt was stopped by a kick save, but Antoine redirected the rebound inside the far post for her first tally of the season. The offense continued firing in the 82nd minute as Kelley once again played Bangert in behind the Lindenwood defense, setting up the freshman’s left-footed score, just inside the post.
“I think finding the balls in behind is what really helped us and then we were able to get the ones in the back of the net,” Bangert said of her teaming up with Kelley and Antoine late in the contest. “I think we did a good job of executing that in the last minutes (of the game).”
Sophomore goalkeeper Cailynn Junk earned the win in relief of Ashton Kudlo, making a pair of second half saves in 45 shutout minutes.
“It felt awesome, especially in coming back. Coach (Johnson) always says to always work hard, even in whatever chance you get,” Junk said. “So coming in, and helping get a win and helping the team out was awesome.”
Slimak fired a game-high five shot attempts while Emily Tobin and Bangert had four apiece. Sarah Henson and Kailyn Smith worked all 90 minutes on the back line as the Jaguars were relegated to just five reserve field players. Kudlo made one stop in the opening half before yielding to Junk at halftime.
With the win, IUPUI closed out its non-conference schedule at 6-2 and 4-1 at Carroll Stadium. The Jaguars will open Horizon League play on Thursday, Sept. 14 at 7:00 p.m. at Northern Kentucky on ESPN+.

Senior Taylor Gardner paced the team with a final round, even par 70 on the tournament’s final day.
“The golf course was extremely firm, so it was all about angles,” Gardner said. “It’s also a test of patience because the pins were in super weird spots. I think our team learned a lot this week on how sometimes bogeys aren’t that bad.
“I don’t think anyone is satisfied about how they played this week, so hopefully we can use this week as motivation going into Drake’s event.”
*******BALL STATE MEN’S GOLF******
SMITH AND BELLAR PACE CARDINALS TO CHAMPIONSHIP AT EARL YESTINGSMEIER INVITATIONAL
MUNCIE, Ind. – Ball State overcame second-round leader Butler to claim the team championship at the Earl Yestingsmeier Invitational, riding the final round success of their first- and second-place individual finishers Carter Smith and Kash Bellar.
The Cardinals, hosting their annual event at Delaware Country Club, trailed the Bulldogs by six strokes through Saturday’s second round. But Bellar’s three-under-par final round of 67 paced the field and Smith, the leader after two rounds, shot a two-under 68 to retain his lead and capture the individual title ahead of his teammate.
Smith, the reigning Mid-American Conference Golfer of the Week following last week’s third-place finish at the Golfweek Collegiate Invitational in Missouri, shot 71-69-68–208 to fire the tournament’s only sub-par (-2) scorecard. Bellar raced back from a three-over par 73 in the opening round and a one-over 71 in round two to ascend the leaderboard. Tied in seventh place after two rounds, Bellar birdied six holes Sunday and would have challenged Smith for the title, but for a double-bogey on the 16th hole (73-71-67–211).
Butler played to a second place behind the efforts of Will Horne who finished third out of the event’s 75 golfers. Horne was tied for second through Saturday’s play and shot 70-72-71–213 overall. His par-70 on Sunday trailed only Smith and Bellar. The Bulldogs’ Leo Zurovac finished among a host of players in 18th place overall, slumping on Sunday from a par-70 in the second round that had him tied for fourth place, just behind Horne. Zurovac carded a 222 overall (73-70-79).
Bowling Green finished third in team standings behind the fourth-place finish of Darin Hudak. Following a bogey on the opening hole of the event, Hudak rallied with five birdies to lead the field with a first-round 68. He finished 68-74-72–214, ahead of teammate Tom Bell in seventh place (71-72-74–217).
The champion Cardinals had three players – Griffin Hare (76-73-73), Ali Khan (77-74-71) and Alec Cesare (75-76-71) – all finish among nine players tied in 18th at 222. Playing on his home track with the rest of the Cardinals, Ball State’s Braxton Kuntz finished 11th (69-75-75—219) overall while playing individually.
The Cardinals continue their fall schedule Oct. 1-3 at the Badger Invitational, hosted by the University of Wisconsin.
*******BALL STATE WOMEN’S SOCCER*******
SOCCER CELEBRATES SENIOR DAY WITH SHUTOUT OF AUSTIN PEAY
MUNCIE, Ind. – – Sophomore forward Emily Roper set the tone early, scoring the first goal of her first career brace in the second minute, to help the Ball State soccer team celebrate senior day with a 3-0 victory over Austin Peay Sunday afternoon at the Briner Sports Complex.
“We’ve been struggling to build on some performances so it’s nice to get a game together here and get a result,” head coach Josh Rife said. “It’s always great to play with the lead, which is a credit to the group. I think we can be dangerous on set pieces and to capitalize on a moment like that early in the match was great.”
After celebrating its seven-member senior class prior to kickoff, the Cardinals (2-4-0) were determined not to disappoint, turning in a dominating overall performance with a season-high 25 total shots, compared to just seven for the Governors (2-5-1).
Roper added her second goal early in the second half, blasting a header off a pass from junior defender Maya Millis past the Govs’ keeper and into the back of the net in the 57th minute.
The Cardinals final goal came off the leg of senior forward Avery Fenchel, raising her season total to four and her career total to 17. One of the seven seniors celebrated on the day, Fenchel currently ranks sixth in program history with her 17 career goals.
“Today was a confidence booster for us,” Fenchel said. “Obviously, the beginning of our schedule was tough, and we knew that going in, but we played to the best of our ability. I think today we were able to put it all together and come out strong. This is just confidence for us moving forward, knowing that if we play well every game, we’re going to win.”
Speaking of solid senior performances, Bethany Moser who celebrated the day with her incoming class, picked up her second win of the season by shutting down the Governors over her 71 minutes of play. She made all three saves for the Cardinals in picking up her third career combined shutout.
“It’s really awesome defensively to get a shutout,” Moser said. “I’m proud our defense finally got something. I think we deserved it maybe in past games; we just haven’t been able to get the full 90. But I think today we gave a full 90 minutes of defensive effort and it really showed. I think it will keep us going in future games.”
Grace Konopatzki was in net over the final 19:11, helping lock down BSU’s first shutout of the year.
In her first career start, senior Paige Munar had somewhat of a helping hand in the opening goal, taking her first career shot of the original corner, which was saved by the goal and deflected right to Roper.
Also helping guide the Cardinals to victory on their senior day were Maria Broering, Abby Elgert, Jordyn Jeffers and Ryann Locante.
The Ball State soccer team closes the non-conference portion of the regular season Thursday with a 7 p.m. kickoff at Butler.
*******BALL STATE FIELD HOCKEY******
FIELD HOCKEY WINS SUDDEN DEATH SHOOTOUT AT LOCK HAVEN
LOCK HAVEN, Pa. – Rachel Bohn scored two goals including the game-winner in the sudden death shootout against Lock Haven Sunday morning at the Charlotte E. Smith Field.
The Cardinals (1-4) went toe-to-toe with the Eagles (2-3) from start to finish today as Ball State had its first sudden death contest since the 2019 season.
Lock Haven got on board first with just 36 seconds shaved off the clock after scoring off a penalty stroke to take the early 1-0 lead over Ball State. After that, the Cardinals were able to regroup and play some stellar defense, holding Lock Haven scoreless the remainder of regulation.
At the 8:55 mark of the second period, Bohn found the back of the cage off the assist from Kerrianne McClay, knotting the ball game 1-1 right before intermission.
Both teams remained competitive throughout the 60-minute duration of today’s game. Ball State had nine penalty corner attempts while Lock Haven had four. Neither team would end up scoring thus sending the contest into overtime.
After two OT’s both squads were held scoreless sending the game into a sudden death shootout. Bohn’s stroke off Lock Haven goalie Kelsey Felix would propel the Cardinals to victory.
Offensively, Ball State had a season best 18 shots along with 10 shots on goal. McClay led the Cardinals with nine shots and six shots on goal while defensively goalie Hannah Johnston had three saves.
The Ball State field hockey team will open Mid-American Conference action Friday at Ohio which will begin at 3 p.m. ET in Athens. After that, the Cardinals return to the Briner Sports Complex for their home opener against Saint Louis Sunday at 1 pm ET.
*******NOTRE DAME WOMEN’S SOCCER******
#11 IRISH FINISH NON-CONFERENCE SLATE WITH 3-0 WIN AT BOWLING GREEN
BOWLING GREEN, Ohio – The No. 11 Notre Dame women’s soccer team (4-1-2) decisively wrapped up its non-conference portion of the schedule on Sunday with a 3-0 road victory at Bowling Green (2-4-0). It marked their second shutout victory of the year.
Maddie Mercado picked up her second game-winner of the season and third goal overall. Meanwhile, Eva Gaetino earned her first assist of the year.
Freshman Meg Mrowicki started in the second half and rewarded Coach Norman with a goal in the 54th minute. Leah Klenke registered her third assist on the season, which now leads all Irish players.
The third and final goal of the match came from graduate Kristina Lynch, her second of the season.
Mercado, Gaetino and Mrowicki now all lead the team with seven points apiece.
Speaking of freshmen getting plenty of experience in this non-conference slate, Atlee Olofson made her first collegiate start. She earned her first shutout as well, tallying two saves along the way.
HOW IT HAPPENED
The Irish dictated most of the first-half play, recording 14 shots to the Falcons’ six. Shots on goal were 4-1 in Notre Dame’s favor as well. The one SOG in which Bowling Green had, took a tremendous save from Atlee Olofson. The freshman, who made her first collegiate start, came up big off of a Notre Dame turnover in their defensive third.
Morgan Roy pushed the tempo and led in shot attempts with five in the half. The freshman had one that just soared over the crossbar. Kiki Van Zanten almost registered her first non-PK goal of the season early in the first half off of a header from a cross from the left side. Furthermore, Leah Klenke had a point-blank shot on the left-hand side of the six-yard box, but Bowling Green’s keeper made a tremendous kick save to keep the Irish off the board.
However, Mercado finally pushed the Irish through in the 35th minute and did so from distance. Gathering the ball from Gaetino in the middle of the field, Mercado dribbled into the offensive third and struck a missile. The ball soared over the keeper and was tucked perfectly underneath the crossbar.
Mercado also kickstarted the second goal that arrived in the 54th minute. Gathering the loose ball in the offensive third, Mercado dished to the left side. Klenke then did what she does best and delivered a perfect cross which found Mrowick’s head and then the corner of the net.
Mercado almost had herself a brace in the 77th minute. Kristina Lynch hit a lob cross to Mercado in the middle of the box but her volley just soared over the crossbar. Moments later, Van Zanten distributed to a sprinting Lynch down the left side who passed back to Van Zanten – she then hit a shot with her left foot which was saved by the keeper.
The Irish got one more in the 83rd minute. Lynch was rewarded with her stellar second-half play with her second goal of the season. Lynch fired a shot right at the keeper which knocked her off her feet. Lynch then followed her shot and put the ball away, wrapping the Irish 3-0 victory.
The Irish open up ACC play in a special Friday night Alumni Weekend game. Notre Dame will host Wake Forest at 7 p.m. ET inside Alumni Stadium, while also welcoming back ‘98 alum Kate Markgraf.

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – Mackenzie Kent connected on the go-ahead goal in the 75th minute and Lina Fasquelle added her first goal with the Sycamores as Indiana State topped visiting SIU Edwardsville on Sunday afternoon at Memorial Stadium, 2-1.
The Sycamores (1-2-5) picked up their first win in the Paul Lawrence coaching era on Sunday afternoon in front of the home crowd as the ISU battled against a tested opponent in SIUE (2-4-1). SIUE held the 12-9 edge in shots and the 7-0 advantage in corner kicks on the contest, but the Sycamores took advantage of their opportunities in recording the victory.
Fasquelle broke open a scoreless tie late in the first half as the junior midfielder collected a ricochet off a free kick near the 30-yard line at Memorial Stadium. The Lille, France native took two touches before launching a shot from 25 yards out past a leaping Taylor Spiller and into the upper left corner of the net in the 42nd minute to give Indiana State the 1-0 lead.
SIUE battled back in the second half with several opportunities before Mackenzie Hayes provided the equalizer in the 64th minute of the contest. Hayes took the ball from Kelsey Kehoe and fired her first goal of the 2023 season into the upper left on target to tie the match back up at 1-1.
The Sycamores continued to press in the second half as Brooklyn Woods collected a SIUE clearance attempt near midfield. The sophomore defender spotted Kent open in the upper right portion of the goal box and crossed the ball on target. Kent took a touch before uncorking a shot over Spiller and under the crossbar for her first goal of the season in the 75th minute to give the Sycamores the 2-1 lead.
SIUE had a late attempt to tie the match up again in the 89th minute, but Sidney Christopher’s shot attempt was turned away by Maddie Alexander to secure the Indiana State win.
Alexander posted three saves in her first win of the season in the net. Spiller had four saves for SIUE in the loss.
News & Notes
Lina Fasquelle became the third Sycamore on the 2023 roster to record her first collegiate goal in the Sycamore Blue & White this season joining Adelaide Wolfe (UT Martin) and Maddie Helling (Eastern Illinois, Robert Morris).
Mackenzie Kent became the fifth different Sycamore to score a goal in the 2023 season with her game-winner in the 75th minute. It marked the seventh of her collegiate career and first game-winner since October 3, 2021, against Evansville.
ISU’s win on Sunday afternoon marked the Sycamores’ first win in the Paul Lawrence coaching era.
The win also marked ISU’s first victory since September 25, 2022, at Illinois State.
Mackenzie Kent continues to lead the Sycamores in both shots (17) and shots on goal (8) on the year.
Brooklyn Woods recorded her first assist as a Sycamore in the contest, becoming the fourth ISU athlete to record an assist in the 2023 season.

USI PICKS UP SECOND CONSECUTIVE RESULT WITH TIE AGAINST NIU
EVANSVILLE, Ind. – University of Southern Indiana Women’s Soccer closed a season-long homestand at Strassweg Field on Sunday afternoon with a 1-1 tie against Northern Illinois University.
Replicating the final score from last year’s meeting between the two schools, Sunday’s draw moved USI to 1-5-2 on the season and Northern Illinois to 2-2-2. The 1-1 tie was USI’s second consecutive result after Thursday’s win against Austin Peay State University. The Screaming Eagles went 1-1-1 during the three-match home set.
Sunday’s first stanza was highlighted by strong defensive play from both teams. Even though USI and NIU each had good build-up play into the attacking third, neither side could find a breakthrough. In the middle of the first half, Northern Illinois ran into Southern Indiana’s defensive box, but USI sophomore keeper Anna Markland (Hoover, Alabama) charged off her goal line and blocked a shot away from the goal.
The Screaming Eagles had two shots off free kicks in the opening 45 minutes and a third attempt by senior defender Alexis Schone (Galena, Ohio) that threatened the goal but was punched away by NIU’s goalkeeper. The match was scoreless at halftime with each team recording three shots in the first half.
The second half began with the same back-and-forth stalemate. Then in the 62nd minute, USI went on the attack. Freshman midfielder Lydia Bordfeld (Evansville, Indiana) found a ball at her feet that she blasted into the crossbar, but the ricochet went right to senior midfielder Avery Schone (Galena, Ohio). Schone buried the putback into the net for her first goal of the season off the assist from Bordfeld, giving USI a 1-0 advantage. Northern Illinois tied the match in the 86th minute on a successful penalty kick by graduate forward Sahara Zingano. Then in the final seconds of the match, the Huskies made one last effort to score the go-ahead goal, but Markland made a big, diving save to her near post to block a shot away and keep the 1-1 draw intact.
Statistically, the Screaming Eagles tallied seven shots with four on goal, while the Huskies totaled six shots with five on target. A physical, defensive contest led to 27 combined fouls. Avery Schone paced USI with three shots, placing two on frame including her 62nd-minute goal. Markland finished with four key saves for Southern Indiana.
Southern Indiana heads back on the road Thursday for a 7 p.m. kickoff against the University of Kansas City. Thursday’s match can be seen on the Summit League Network.

*******VALPO WOMEN’S SOCCER*******
SOCCER CLOSES NONCONFERENCE PLAY WITH DRAW AT EMU
Fifth-year midfielder Allie Anderson (Wheaton, Ill./Wheaton Warrenville South [Xavier]) made sure that the Valpo soccer team would not end nonconference play on a losing note Sunday afternoon, finding the back of the net in the 86th minute to give the Beacons a 1-1 draw at Eastern Michigan.
How It Happened
Valpo was able to hold off early pressure from the host Eagles, as EMU had eight shots and three corner kicks inside the first 17 minutes of the match. Senior goalkeeper Nikki Coryell (Aurora, Ill./Metea Valley) made four saves during that stretch to keep EMU off the board.
The Beacons had a couple stints of strong pressure in the early going as well, but were unable to get on the board.
The Eagles found their goal in the 28th minute, as Meagan Lukowski tallied the match’s opener. The match went into halftime with EMU leading 1-0.
Both sides forced the opposing goalkeepers to make multiple saves during the second half, with Coryell making a pair of stops to keep it a one-goal game, while EMU goalkeeper Rebecca Przybylo stopped three shots to keep Valpo off the board.
Finally, with the clock ticking under five minutes to play, the Beacons found the goal they needed to level the score, taking advantage of a free kick in the attacking third. Played into the box, a couple 50-50 headers resulted in the ball finding senior Lindsey DuSatko (Plainfield, Ill./North), who sent a ball across goal toward the far post, where Anderson was waiting to volley it into the upper 90.
Inside the Match
Valpo closed the nonconference slate with a 4-2-2 record, the program’s first winning record in nonconference action since the 2017 side went 6-5-0.
The 4-2-2 mark is Valpo’s best nonconference record since going 4-1-4 outside conference play in 2014.
Anderson’s goal was her second of the season, making her the fourth Beacon to net multiple goals this year.
The goal, which came at the 85:22 mark, was the latest regulation equalizer for Valpo since Tahelah Noel netted a goal 75 seconds from the end of regulation to force extra time in an eventual win over Eastern Illinois on Sept. 1, 2017.
It was the latest equalizer in a draw for Valpo since Sept. 10, 2004 at Toledo, when Kelly Faulkner scored at the 87:06 mark in a 1-1 tie with the Rockets.
Coryell made six saves in goal to preserve the draw, matching a season high. She is now alone in fifth place in program history with 239 career saves.
Dating back to last year, Valpo has surrendered one goal or fewer in 18 of its last 19 matches.
EMU finished with a 16-11 advantage in the shots department and put seven on goal to Valpo’s five.
Fifth-year center back Nicole Norfolk (Menomonee Falls, Wis./Divine Savior Holy Angels) was one of four Valpo field players to play the full 90 on Sunday and played all 720 minutes of the nonconference slate.
Thoughts From Head Coach John Marovich
“Playing on Friday, we knew we were going to come into today with a bit of fatigue, and I thought our players responded really well.”
“We created some really good scoring chances in the first half that we didn’t put away. We had many good attacking ideas, but had to be more clinical in front of goal.”
“We gave away a goal late in the first half, but I’m proud of the resilience of this group. We kept fighting back, switched our formation, found a way to get a bit more of the run of play. We created several great chances and ultimately got rewarded for the consistency of the push — it’s easy to get more frantic the later it gets when you’re chasing a goal, but our players really kept their heads, stayed true and got rewarded for their effort.”
“This group just keeps asking questions of themselves, how can we get better, and they keep learning and growing each and every match. Applying those things today is why we got rewarded for our resiliency and our perseverance.”
Valpo (4-2-2) will have an unusual stretch of 11 days off mid-season, as with the MVC slate kicking off next weekend, the Beacons have their bye in the first match day of the conference schedule. Valpo returns to the field on Thursday, Sept. 21 to kick off Valley play at Evansville.
JANUSKI, STRONGMAN PICK UP ALL-TOURNAMENT ACCOLADES
Valpo placed two players on the All-Tournament Team following the conclusion of this weekend’s Stacheville Challenge, as Mallory Januski (Bourbonnais, Ill./Bradley-Bourbonnais) and Miranda Strongman (Wolverine Lake, Mich./Walled Lake Central [LIU]) picked up the honors.
Januski averaged a team-best 2.30 kills/set for the weekend, including a pair of double-figure performances: 10 kills on .350 hitting Friday night against host Austin Peay, and 12 kills — tying for match-high honors — on .458 hitting Saturday in Valpo’s win over Lindenwood. She also posted four blocks apiece in those two matches, pacing the Beacons against APSU.
Strongman had a stellar attack line versus the hosts, putting down seven kills on just 11 swings with no errors against the Governors. She closed the weekend with six kills and four blocks to help the Beacons close the weekend with their win over Lindenwood.
Both Januski and Strongman have earned All-Tournament Team accolades twice this season and the pair have three apiece for their careers.

LATE THANHOFER GOAL HELPS TIE BUCCANEERS
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The University of Indianapolis men’s soccer team (2-0-1) tied Christian Brothers (2-0-2) 1-1 on Sunday afternoon.
HOW IT HAPPENED
An early goal by Christian Brothers in the first half helped propel the team into the second half. Niklas Thanhofer scored the only UIndy goal in the middle of the second half, his first of the season. Bobby Turner assisted Thanhofer with the goal.
A group of yellow cards prevented the Hounds from securing shots near the Buccaneers’ goal. Although the lack of frequency near the goal did not stop UIndy in taken shots.
Saves from Kieran Brown stopped Christian Brothers chance of securing the win.

GREYHOUNDS DROP ROAD TILT TO NORTHWOOD
MIDLAND, Mich. – The University of Indianapolis women’s soccer team fell to the Northwood Timberwolves by a score of 4-1 on Sunday afternoon. Sarah Wegener was the lone goal scorer for the Hounds in the loss, grabbing her first of the young season.
INS AND OUTS
The Hounds got going early in the contest, seeing Uma Yadav Massó grab a shot at the five-minute mark with just four minutes later Wegener finding the back of the net. Maddy Theis was credited with the assist on the score.
The score stood at 1-0 in favor of UIndy for nearly 20 minutes before the Timberwolves evened it up. Fouls by the Hounds later set up a penalty for Northwood, an opportunity they capitalized on, taking the lead into the break.
Three UIndy yellow cards within a 10-minute span sandwiched yet another Northwood goal to make it 3-1. The Hounds attempted to bring it within one, unleashing a barrage of shots, but to no avail with the home team etching their fourth goal of the contest and the final score change of the contest at the 69th minute.
The Hounds will attempt to bounce back into the win column as they once again make a road trip, this time to Bolivar, Mo. to face the Bearcats of Southwest Baptist in their GLVC-conference opener. The match is set for Friday, with opening kick etched for 5 p.m.

*******TODAY IN BASEBALL HISTORY*******
1886 At Washington’s Swampoodle Grounds, backstop Connie Mack makes his major league debut when the Nationals, in a rare victory, edge the Philadelphia Quakers, 4-3. As a manager, the journeyman catcher posts the most big-league wins and losses, compiling a 3731-3948 (.486) record with the Pirates and A’s during his 53-year managerial career.
1886 Roger Connor becomes the first and only player to hit a ball out of the original Polo Grounds (110th Street and Fifth Avenue). The Giants’ first baseman receives a $500 gold watch from stockbrokers and others to honor his accomplishment.
1902 In the bottom of the 11th inning, John Malarkey hits a game-ending homer off St. Louis right-hander Mike O’Neill to give the Beaneaters a 4-3 win in the first game of a twin bill at Boston’s South End Grounds. Malarkey becomes the first pitcher in baseball history to earn a victory by hitting a walk-off home run.
1912 Eddie Collins steals six bases when Philadelphia beats the Tigers at Detroit’s Navin Field. 9-7. The A’s second baseman swipes six bags again in September, ending the season with 66 stolen bases, second behind Clyde Milan’s league-leading 88.
1915 Eddie Plank of the Federal League’s St. Louis Terriers records his 300th victory when he defeats the Newark Peppers 12-5. The future Hall of Famer (1946) is the ninth player and first southpaw to reach this milestone.
1918 In the earliest conclusion of the Fall Classic, Boston’s Carl Mays three-hits the Cubs 2-1, with the Red Sox winning the World Series in six games. Baseball shortened the regular season by a month to meet many major leaguers’ obligation to leave their team after being drafted into the military to serve in World War I.
1923 At Yankee Stadium, Red Sox hurler Howard Ehmke misses being the first pitcher to throw consecutive no-hitters, tossing a one-hitter in the team’s 3-0 victory against New York. The only safety given up by the 29-year-old right-hander is a first-inning infield hit to lead-off batter Whitey Witt, a grounder misplayed by Boston’s third baseman Howard Shanks that is ruled a single by the official scorer.
1928 Yankee shortstop Mark Koenig’s routine catch of A’s pinch-hitter Ty Cobb’s pop fly behind third base will mark the last time the ‘Georgia Peach’ swings a bat in the big leagues. The aging 41-year-old, the all-time hits leader, will announce his retirement six days later, ending a 24-year Hall of Fame career.
1938 Free admission and giveaways of small bats and bags of peanuts highlight Lefty O’Doul Day at Seals Stadium for youngsters under 14. Between games of the PCL doubleheader against the Oakland Oaks, the kids have a chance to scramble for autographed balls thrown by the San Francisco Seals players.
1942 Paul Gillespie homers in his first major league at-bat, hitting a solo shot off Harry Feldman in the second inning of the Cubs’ 4-3 loss to New York at the Polo Grounds. The Chicago reserve catcher will become the first of only two players in baseball history, along with John Miller (1966-1969), to a hit home run in their first and last big-league at-bats when he blasts a round-tripper in his final plate appearance in 1945.
1947 Ralph Branca becomes the youngest pitcher to win twenty games in the National League. The 21-year-old Dodger right-hander, who finishes the season with 21 victories, reaches the plateau in his third attempt when Brooklyn beats the Cardinals at Sportsman’s Park, 4-3.
1948 For the 16th consecutive season, the Phillies will have a losing season when the team loses its 78th game of the year, dropping a 13-2 decision to the Braves at Shibe Park. The drought began in 1933 and will be the longest in big-league history until the Pirates suffer through twenty downtrodden years from 1993 to 2012.
1954 New York first baseman Whitey Lockman pinch-hits a grand slam off Cincinnati right-hander Howie Judson. The seventh-inning four-run round-tripper propels the first-place Giants to an eventual 7-5 victory over the Reds at the Polo Grounds.
1955 After working the count full with two outs in the ninth, Del Crandall hits a grand slam, giving the Braves a dramatic 5-4 walk-off victory over Philadelphia. Milwaukee had entered the final frame at County Stadium behind 4-0 before the backstop abruptly ended the game with his ‘ultimate grand slam.’
1955 In his first and only major league appearance, Fred Van Dusen, entering the game as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning for the Phillies, is hit by a pitch thrown by Humberto Robinson of the Braves. The 18-year-old bonus baby’s career ends with an on-base percentage of 1.000 but without a batting average.
1956 Frank Robinson ties Wally Berger’s 1930 National League rookie record for home runs with his 38th in the Reds’ 11-5 victory over the Giants at the Polo Grounds. Mark McGwire (1989 Cardinals, 49), Aaron Judge (2017 Yankees, 52), and Pete Alonso (2019 Mets, 53) will extend the major league mark for freshman homers.
1959 At Memorial Stadium, two twenty-year-old Oriole hurlers throw complete-game shutouts in a twin bill sweep against the White Sox. Jack Fischer wins the opener 3-0, and Jerry Walker pitches 16 innings, beating the Pale Hose in the nightcap, 1-0.
1959 Dodger Chuck Churn, the winner of only three major league career games, ends Elroy Face’s consecutive-victory streak at 22 with a 5-4 decision over the Pirates. The 31-year-old All-Star reliever finishes the season with an 18-1 (.947) record for the fourth-place Bucs.
1964 At Milwaukee’s County Stadium, Braves’ southpaw Denny Lemaster throws a one-hitter, beating the Reds and Jim Maloney, who gives up only two hits, 1-0. The only run of the two-hour and six-minute contest scores on a sac fly by Felipe Alou, plating Gene Oliver in the bottom of the eighth inning.
1966 In his debut, Nolan Ryan whiffs the first batter he faces, making Braves pitcher Pat Jarvis the first strikeout victim the right-hander will claim during a 27-year Hall of Fame career. The 19-year-old Mets right-hander fans three batters during his two-inning Shea Stadium relief stint en route to a major league mark of 5,714 career strikeouts.
1966 In his first major league at-bat, John Miller hits a round-tripper off Lee Stange in the second inning of the Yankees’ 4-2 victory over Boston at Fenway Park. The 22-year-old outfielder, whose total of 10 hits in his 32 big-league games includes two home runs, becomes the second player, joining Paul Gillespie, to hit a homer in his first and last plate appearance, going deep as a pinch-hitter for the Dodgers in his final turn at-bat in 1969.
1968 Tying a dubious major league record, Cubs right-hander Ferguson Jenkins loses his fifth 1-0 decision of the season when the Mets and Jim McAndrew beat Chicago with a lone run at Wrigley Field. The Canadian-born hurler will finish the season with a 20-15 record but is 20-6 in games where his team scores a run.
1969 Implementing an innovation he conceived, team owner Ewing Kauffman announces plans to start the Kansas City Royals Baseball Academy. Presently a scout, Syd Thrift, will be named the program’s director, designed to develop gifted athletes into major-league-ready ballplayers for the organization.
1974 In a game that will feature a record 202 batters, the Cardinals defeat the Mets in the seven-hour and four-minute Shea Stadium contest, 4-3, with Hank Webb taking the loss after making an errant pickoff throw in the top of the 25th inning that leads to the eventual winning run. Redbird Ken Reitz’s two-strike, two-out home run tied the game in the top of the ninth, making the extra innings necessary.
1975 Not satisfied with the Yankees’ offer, the White Sox withdraw their waivers on Tom Seaver, blocking New York’s attempt to obtain the future Hall of Fame right-hander. The Bronx Bombers, 1½ games behind the Blue Jays and in need of pitching, also showed interest in the 13-10 hurler because the acquisition would help win the daily battle for media coverage in the Big Apple with the crosstown Mets, the team that considers the 40-year-old right-hander the ‘Franchise.’
1979 The Expos beat the Cubs at Olympic Stadium, 8-6, for their 82nd win of the campaign. The victory ensures Montreal a winning season for the first in the 11-year history of the franchise.
1985 At Riverfront Stadium in front of 47,237 hometown fans, Reds’ player-manager Pete Rose collects his 4,192nd career hit to pass Ty Cobb, who had his last at-bat 57 years ago on this date, to become the all-time major league hit leader. Padres right-hander Eric Show gives up the historic hit, a first-inning single to left field, in Cincinnati’s eventual 2-0 victory over San Diego.
1987 With his 30th stolen base, Mets third baseman Howard Johnson becomes the first National League infielder to become a 30-30 club member. The other players in the Senior Circuit to have 30 home runs and 30 stolen bases in the same season are outfielders Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Bobby Bonds, Dale Murphy, and Eric Davis.
1987 In the opening game of a critical series against the Mets at Shea Stadium, Terry Pendleton hits a ninth-inning game-tying home run in the Cardinals’ eventual 6-4 overtime victory with two outs and two strikes. The Redbird’s third basemen’s dramatic long ball smashes the car windshield of New York starter Ron Darling, who pitched one-hit ball before leaving in the top of the seventh due to spraining his thumb fielding Vince Coleman’s bunt in the last inning.
1991 Three Atlanta hurlers pitch the first combined no-hitter in National League history. Kent Mercker, Mark Wohlers, and Alejandro Pena join forces to hold the opposing batters hitless in the Braves’ 1-0 victory over the Padres at Jack Murphy Stadium.
1995 Yankees starter Jack McDowell throws exactly three pitches in the ninth inning, recording the final three outs of his 4-0 shutout of the Tribe at Jacobs Field. ‘Black Jack’ retires Jim Thome, Manny Ramirez, and Paul Sorrento on line drives to the outfield on the first pitch thrown to each batter.
1996 Having hit a home run off right-hander Francisco Cordova earlier in the game, Ken Caminiti goes deep in the bottom of the seventh inning off southpaw Matt Ruebel, making it the fourth time this season he has homered from both sides of the plate in a game. The Padres’ third baseman breaks his own major league record, which he established last year when he accomplished the feat three times.
1997 In a 9-5 Mets victory over the Expos at Shea Stadium, slow-footed John Olerud legs out an eighth-inning three-run triple to center field off Steve Kline, completing the first of two career cycles. The 29-year-old New York first baseman becomes the seventh player in the franchise’s 33-year history to accomplish the feat.
1998 Dropping an 8-2 decision against division-leading Atlanta, the Marlins lose their 100th game of the season, becoming the first team from being World Series champions to having triple digits defeats the next season. Florida, which has never had 100 defeats during its six-year existence, will compile a 54-108 (.333) record to finish last in the five-team National League East.
1998 Kevin Malone is named the Dodgers’ general manager, replacing Tommy Lasorda, who becomes the team’s senior vice president. The “new sheriff in town” tenure in Los Angeles features high-profile players signing huge contracts, including Kevin Brown’s seven-year deal making the right-hander the first $100 million man in baseball.
1999 Facing just one batter, Doug Jones records his 300th career save when he gets the final out in the A’s 5-4 win over Tampa Bay at Tropicana Field. The 42-year-old right-handed reliever, the 11th closer to reach the milestone, will retire at the end of next season with 303 saves.
1999 At the Metrodome, Twins’ southpaw Eric Milton throws a no-hitter against the visiting Angels, 7-0, the fourth since the team moved to Minnesota from Washington, D.C., in 1961. The 24-year-old retires the side in order in seven of the nine innings en route to his 13-strikeout gem.
2001 In the wake of terrorist attacks on New York City’s World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Major League Baseball cancels all games for security reasons and the deep mourning of the senseless loss of lives. The evacuation of Yankee Stadium also takes place as a precautionary measure.
2002 Yankee legends Whitey Ford and Phil Rizzuto unveil a monument dedicated to the September 11th terrorist attacks victims. The team also has a ceremonial tree planting in Monument Park in honor of the heroes and victims of last year’s horrific events.
2004 The 36,887 Bank One Ballpark fans, hoping to see Barry Bonds hit his 699th and perhaps 700th career homer, watch the Giant left fielder reach a different milestone. The San Francisco slugger receives three bases-on-balls from Diamondback pitchers to break his own record and become the first major leaguer to walk over 200 times in a single season.
2006 Cody Ross ties two team records with three home runs and seven RBIs in the Marlins’ 16-5 rout of the Mets. The Florida right fielder drives in all his runs in the Dolphin Stadium contest with a pair of two-run homers and a three-run round-tripper.
2006 Frank Thomas goes yard in his sixth straight game, setting an A’s franchise record. The Big Hurt’s 36th home run, which comes off Twins’ starter Carlos Silva, is nearly caught by center fielder Torii Hunter.
2008 Jack Cust whiffs in his first two plate appearances and K’s again in the eighth inning to bring his strikeout total this season to 176. The A’s outfielder/DH breaks the franchise record previously held by Jose Canseco, who fanned 175 times in 1986.
2008 With his sixth-inning double in the 3-2 loss to the Cubs, Cardinals’ first baseman Albert Pujols becomes only the third player in history to drive in 100 runs during his first eight major league seasons. The two other big leaguers to reach the plateau are Red sox outfielder Ted Williams, who also accomplished the feat for eight seasons from 1939-42, 46-49, and starting in 1924, fly-chaser Al Simmons did it for 11 years playing for the A’s (9) and the White Sox (2).
2009 A small boy races to the pitcher’s mound and grabs a baseball intended for Tigers reliever Brandon Lyon Before starting the eighth inning at Comerica Park. The youngster is helped back into the stands and can keep the ball after a discussion between the boy’s uncle and the stadium security guards reveals that the six-year-old had misunderstood a suggestion to go to the railing and get a ball from one of the Blue Jays players.
2009 With an opposite-field single in the third inning of a 10-4 loss to Baltimore on a rainy New York night, Derek Jeter becomes the all-time team leader in hits for the historic franchise. The safety gives the Yankees captain 2,722 hits, one more than legendary Lou Gehrig, another 35-year-old team captain, who had held the record for over 70 years.
2010 With MLB’s permission, Pete Rose goes on the Great American Ball Park field to celebrate his record-breaking hit that passed Ty Cobb, making him the all-time leader. Joined by former teammates Tony Perez and Cesar Geronimo, the banished player receives a trophy from Reds’ owner Bob Castellini, commemorating the 25th anniversary of the historic 4,192nd hit.
2010 Jim Thome connects for career homer No. 587 to pass Hall of Famer Frank Robinson for eighth place on the all-time career list. The Twins DH’s historic round-tripper, which he blasts in the top of the twelfth inning at Progressive Field, is the lone run in Minnesota’s 1-0 victory over Cleveland.
2010 For the 10th consecutive campaign, starting with his rookie year, Albert Pujols drives in 100 or more runs. Only Al Simmons, with 11, has more seasons with 100 RBIs to start a career than the Cardinals’ first baseman.
2011 Major League Baseball denies the Mets’ request to wear caps honoring police, firefighters, and other first responders for their September 11th game against Chicago. The hats donned during the pregame ceremony in remembrance of the tragic event will be autographed and sold on Mets.com, with the proceeds given to charities by the team’s foundation.
2013 At Marlins Park, benches clear when Brian McCann confronts Jose Fernandez as the Miami starting pitcher crosses home plate after hitting his first career home run. The Braves’ backstop and third baseman Chris Johnson take exception to the 21-year-old rookie right-hander admiring the home run from the batter’s box, then glaring into the Atlanta dugout rounding the bases.
2015 When Mariners reliever Tony Zych makes his major league debut in an 11-8 victory over the A’s, he displaces outfielder Dutch Zwilling, who held the distinction for more than a century of being listed last in baseball’s all-time alphabetical roll call. Another Seattle reliever, David Aardsma, ranks first in the ABCs of baseball, replacing Hank Aaron at the top of the list in his 2004 major league debut with the Giants.
2020 At Tropicana Field, the Rays use a lineup that features nine true left-handers, marking the first time a batting order of all southpaw swingers start a major league game in the modern era, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. Although a few teams had played games when all nine hitters batted from the left-hand side of the plate, none of the players in Tampa Bay’s 11-1 victory were switch-hitters.
September 11, 1983 – Franco Harris becomes the 3rd player in NFL history to rush for 11,000 career yards or more. Harris’s 118 yards in the Pittsburgh Steelers 25-21 victory at Green Bay Packers put him over the distinctive yardage mark.
HALL OF FAME BIRTHDAYS FOR SEPTEMBER 11
September 11, 1897 – Stan Keck was a former guard and tackle for Princeton University. Stan was selected as an All-American in 1920 and 1921 for his great line play. The College Football Hall of Fame enshrined him in 1959 after a National Football Foundation vote. After his playing days Keck ended up getting into coaching and he served as the head coach at Waynesburg University from 1947 through the 1950 season.
September 11, 1924 – Tom Landry the former Head Coach of the Dallas Cowboys for 29 seasons. When one thinks of Coach Landry the image of a well dressed, poised man in a fedora pacing the sidelines comes to mind. He had a demeanor unlike most coaches, he rarely showed emotion from the sideline, neither in anger or in exhuberation. Landry was from Mission, Texas and he attended the University of Texas where he played football for the Longhorns. Landry was a pretty talented player at that and well rounded as he played, cornerback, punter, quarterback and halfback. Most people don’t realize that he played professionally as well, being drafted 128th over all in the All-American Football Conference’s 1948 Draft by the New York Yankees. Tom played with the Yanks and then after the AAFC folded in 1949 he switched to the NFL to play with the New York Giants who had drafted him in the 1947 NFL Draft and held his league rights. Landry received his first glimpse of coaching as a Giant when Head Coach Steve Owen asked the young Landry to explain the 6-1-4 defense to his teammates. He stayed with the Giants for multiple seasons and was voted in as an All-Pro in 1954. In 1954 and 1955 with Steve Owen out as coach Landry served as a player/assistant coach under new head man Jim Lee Howell. Landry was the defensive coordinator while a man named Vince Lombardi was in charge of the Giants offense. Coach Landry ended his career after the 1955 season with 32 interceptions in a mere 80 games played. Early in 1960 before they even officially existed, Tom Landry was hired as the Head Coach of the Dallas Cowboys. The first year coach had some tough sledding as his team went 0-11-1. The Cowboys owner, Clint Murchison Jr., had faith in Landry though as he promptly signed him to a 10 year extension. The patience paid off as the team improved and in 1966 the team won 10 games and earned the right to play Lombardi’s Packers in the NFL Championship game. His tenure as the Dallas head man lasted an amazing record of 29 years. He developed the 4-3 defense while in New York creating the position of middle linebacker, brought the use of the shot gun offense out of mothballs, innovated the flex defense and trained his running backs to run through any open space, not to a specific hole opened up by design. He taught his players to fully concentrate on their tasks and so as not to lose focus he trained them in almost mechanical shifts and player sets during the offensive cadence. He was to have said that since he and his players were so busy concentrating on doing their jobs that they had no time to be emotional. Landry coached teams in Dallas made the Super Bowl 5 times, winning two of them and he was a Bart Starr QB sneak in the Ice Bowl away from a sixth. 1990 Coach Landry was selected to enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
September 11, 1978 – Ed Reed was a former Safety for the University of Miami Hurricanes. The prolific safety was drafted as the 24th overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens, and Reed played his entire 12 year career there. Reed started all 16 games as a rookie, ended up being the 2004 Defensive Player of the Year and played in 6 Pro Bowls. Ed was a ball hawk as he had 64 interceptions in 167 games played scoring 7 touchdowns. Ed Reed was selected to enter both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame.
