NFL ROUNDUP: CHIEFS GET BACK ON WINNING TRACK AGAINST JAGUARS
Patrick Mahomes passed for 305 yards and two touchdowns to help the Kansas City Chiefs notch a 17-9 victory over the host Jacksonville Jaguars.
Mahomes threw touchdown passes to Skyy Moore and Travis Kelce as the Chiefs (1-1) rebounded from a season-opening 21-20 loss to the Detroit Lions.
Mahomes completed 29 of 41 passes with one interception and Kelce caught four passes for 26 yards after missing the opener due to a hyperextended knee. Kansas City’s Chris Jones and George Karlaftis each recorded 1.5 sacks. It was Jones’ first game since ending his holdout.
Trevor Lawrence completed 22 of 41 passes for 216 yards for the Jaguars (1-1). Christian Kirk grabbed 11 passes for 110 yards, but fellow wideouts Zay Jones and Calvin Ridley each failed to get both feet down on end-zone throws on two occasions apiece.
Giants 31, Cardinals 28
Daniel Jones passed for two touchdowns and ran for one and visiting New York rallied from a 20-0 halftime deficit to defeat Arizona.
Jones completed 26 of 37 passes for 321 yards as the Giants (1-1) bounced back from six scoreless quarters to start the season and outscored the Cardinals (0-2) 17-0 in the fourth quarter. Jones threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Saquon Barkley and an 11-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Hodgins, then drove New York 56 yards to Graham Gano’s winning 34-yard field goal with 19 seconds remaining.
Joshua Dobbs, filling in for the injured Kyler Murray, passed for 228 yards and one touchdown and James Conner rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown for Arizona.
Commanders 35, Broncos 33
Sam Howell threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns and Brian Robinson added two touchdown runs in the fourth quarter as visiting Washington rallied past Denver. In his third NFL start — all Washington wins — Howell completed 27 of 39 passes to fuel the Commanders’ rally. Robinson added 87 yards on 18 carries.
Russell Wilson gave Denver a chance when he completed a 50-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass to Brandon Johnson, who came down with the tipped ball in the end zone with no time left. But on the 2-point conversion try, Benjamin St-Juste broke up Wilson’s pass intended for Courtland Sutton to preserve the wild win for Washington (2-0). Wilson completed 18 of 32 passes for 308 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.
The Commanders surrendered touchdowns on the Broncos’ first three possessions and fell behind 21-3 before staging their comeback and denying Sean Payton his first win as coach of the Broncos (0-2).
Seahawks 37, Lions 31 (OT)
Geno Smith connected with Tyler Lockett on a 6-yard touchdown pass in overtime to give visiting Seattle a victory over Detroit.
Smith passed for 69 yards on the overtime drive after the Seahawks won the coin toss. Smith threw for 328 yards and two scores, both to Lockett, who caught eight passes for 59 yards. Kenneth Walker rushed for 43 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries for Seattle (1-1).
Lions kicker Riley Patterson made a 38-yard field goal as the clock hit zeroes to force overtime. Jared Goff passed for 323 yards and three touchdowns for Detroit (1-1). Goff was picked off for the first time in 384 attempts by Tre Brown, who returned the interception 40 yards for a score.
Colts 31, Texans 20
Gardner Minshew passed for 171 yards and a touchdown in relief of injured rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson as Indianapolis claimed a victory over host Houston.
Richardson was 6-of-10 passing for 56 yards and rushed three times for 35 yards and two touchdowns before his second-quarter exit. He slammed the back of his helmet on the turf on his second touchdown run. Minshew led scoring drives of 76 and 75 yards to help the Colts (1-1) secure a 28-10 lead by halftime.
Rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud completed 30 of 47 passes for 384 yards for the Texans (0-2), including scoring passes to Nico Collins and Tank Dell, but he was sacked six times.
Bills 38, Raiders 10
Josh Allen bounced back from a rough Week 1 performance to throw for three touchdowns as Buffalo cruised past Las Vegas in Orchard Park, N.Y.
Allen completed 31 of 37 passes for 274 yards and James Cook paced the rushing attack with 123 yards on 17 carries for the Bills (1-1). Gabe Davis scored on a 2-yard touchdown reception early in the third quarter to make it 28-10. He finished with six catches for 92 yards.
Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 185 yards with a TD and two interceptions on 16-of-24 passing for the Raiders (1-1), who saw reigning NFL rushing leader Josh Jacobs held to minus-2 yards rushing on nine carries. Davante Adams hauled in six receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown but left the game late in the fourth quarter after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit.
Falcons 25, Packers 24
A gutsy fourth-down call by head coach Arthur Smith led to a 25-yard game-winning field goal by Younghoe Koo as Atlanta rallied to beat visiting Green Bay.
Facing a fourth-and-inches on its final drive at Green Bay’s 23-yard line, Smith gambled and went for it and Bijan Robinson rushed for seven yards, which set up Koo for the game-winner. Robinson led the Falcons (2-0) with 124 rushing yards on 19 carries.
Desmond Ridder completed 19 of 32 passes for 237 yards and a touchdown. He also added 39 yards and a score on the ground. Drake London led the Falcons in receptions (six) and yards (67) and had a 3-yard touchdown reception. For Green Bay, Jordan Love completed 14 of 25 passes for 151 yards and three touchdowns. Jayden Reed hauled in four receptions for 37 yards and two touchdowns for the Packers (1-1).
Titans 27, Chargers 24 (OT)
Ryan Tannehill passed for 246 yards and a touchdown, Nick Folk made a 41-yard field goal in overtime and Tennessee defeated Los Angeles in Nashville, Tenn., to end an eight-game losing streak going back to last season.
Derrick Henry gained 79 yards of the team’s 141 rushing yards for Tennessee (1-1), which led 24-21 with 2:22 remaining in regulation after a 4-yard touchdown pass from Tannehill to Nick Westbrook-Ikhine. The Chargers (0-2) sent the game into overtime on Cameron Dicker’s 33-yard field goal as the clock expired.
Justin Herbert was 27-of-41 passing and 305 yards for the Chargers and connected on two touchdown passes to Keenan Allen, who had eight receptions for 111 yards. Playing without Austin Ekeler (ankle), the Chargers had just 61 yards rushing on 21 carries.
Ravens 27, Bengals 24
Lamar Jackson finished 24-of-33 passing for 237 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 54 yards to lead visiting Baltimore past Cincinnati.
Joe Burrow completed 27 of 41 passes for 222 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Burrow aggravated his right calf injury on his second touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter.
Jackson threw a 17-yard TD pass to Nelson Agholor before Burrow found Tee Higgins for a 4-yard scoring strike to pull Cincinnati (0-2) within three with 3:28 left in the game. But Baltimore ran out the clock from there.
Buccaneers 27, Bears 17
Baker Mayfield was 26-of-34 passing for 317 yards and a touchdown and Mike Evans had six receptions for 171 yards and a score to lift host Tampa Bay over Chicago.
The Bucs (2-0) sacked Bears quarterback Justin Fields six times while limiting him to 211 yards on 16-of-29 passing. Fields had one touchdown and two interceptions while fumbling twice. He also ran for a score, but the Bears (0-2) lost their 12th consecutive game dating to last season.

Cowboys 30, Jets 10
Dak Prescott threw two touchdown passes and Brandon Aubrey kicked five field goals as Dallas blew out a New York team for the second straight week with a thrashing in Arlington, Texas.
Prescott completed 31 of 38 passes for 255 yards in an efficient effort for the Cowboys (2-0). After a 40-0 blowout of the Giants in Week 1, the Cowboys were more workmanlike but just as good against a Jets team playing without quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles).
Zach Wilson hit on 12 of 27 passes for 170 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions for New York (1-1). His highlight was a 68-yard pass-and-run connection with Garrett Wilson at the 7:12 mark of the second quarter, the first touchdown scored against Dallas in six quarters.
49ers 30, Rams 23
Christian McCaffrey rushed for 116 yards on 20 carries and scored a touchdown to lead San Francisco to a win against Los Angeles in Inglewood, Calif.
Quarterback Brock Purdy completed 17 of 25 passes for 206 yards for the 49ers (2-0). He had no interceptions for the second consecutive game. In the second half, the San Francisco defense kept the Rams (1-1) out of the end zone and forced two turnovers.
Rams wide receiver Puka Nacua had 147 yards on 15 catches, the most by a rookie in a single game in NFL history. He also set an NFL record with 25 receptions through his first two games. Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford completed 34 of 55 passes for 307 yards with a touchdown and two second-half interceptions.

Adley Rutschman scored on Cedric Mullins’ sacrifice fly in the 11th inning as the Baltimore Orioles clinched their first playoff appearance since 2016 with a 5-4 win over the visiting Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday.
The Orioles earned a split of the four-game series and increased their lead over the Rays to two games in the American League East. With the Texas Rangers losing to the Cleveland Guardians, the Rays locked up their fifth consecutive playoff berth.
Ryan O’Hearn’s sacrifice bunt moved Rutschman to third leading off the 11th against Jake Diekman (0-2). Mullins then followed with a deep fly to center. DL Hall (2-0) pitched a scoreless 11th inning for the Orioles.
With Baltimore trailing 3-2 in the ninth, Austin Hays singled with two outs against Pete Fairbanks. With pinch runner Jorge Mateo moving on the pitch, Adam Frazier doubled down the left field line and Mateo came around with the tying run.
The Rays took a 4-3 lead in the 10th when Manuel Margot scored on a groundout, but the Orioles tied it on Rutschman’s two-out single in the bottom half of the frame.
Marlins 16, Braves 2
Jazz Chisholm Jr. became the first player in franchise history to slug grand slams in consecutive games as host Miami swept Atlanta.

Jose Ramirez homered and drove in two runs for Cleveland, which completed a three-game sweep. Andres Gimenez finished 2-for-4 with a double and three RBIs.
Josh H. Smith and Ezequiel Duran drove in one run apiece for Texas. The Rangers fell 1 1/2 games behind the Astros in the AL West. Texas currently holds the league’s third wild-card spot by one game.
Mets 8, Reds 4
Jose Quintana pitched 6 2/3 effective innings, Francisco Alvarez hit a two-run double and Daniel Vogelbach added a late bases-clearing double as host New York beat Cincinnati.
Mark Vientos had three hits and an RBI for New York, which salvaged the finale of the three-game series. The Mets are all but mathematically eliminated from the NL wild-card chase, but they played spoiler. Cincinnati began the day tied for the NL’s third wild-card spot with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Nationals 2, Brewers 1 (11 innings)
Joey Meneses hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the top of the 11th inning to lift Washington to victory over host Milwaukee.

Brandon Crawford homered, J.D. Davis had two hits and three runs and San Francisco held off Colorado in Denver.
The Giants put up an eight-run sixth inning to take a 9-0 lead, and the Rockies’ comeback effort fell short despite four runs in the ninth. Mitch Haniger, Thairo Estrada and Joc Pederson each had two hits for San Francisco, which avoided a four-game sweep.
Hunter Goodman and Brenton Doyle homered for the Rockies. Elias Diaz’s two-run single in the ninth pulled Colorado within 11-10, but Taylor Rogers replaced Camilo Doval and got Charlie Blackmon to line out to end it, picking up his second save of the season.
Padres 10, Athletics 1
Juan Soto blew out the candles on Bob Melvin’s three-day homecoming party with an eighth-inning grand slam, propelling visiting San Diego to a victory over Oakland and a three-game sweep of an interleague series.
Soto also belted a two-run homer an inning earlier to finish 3-for-5 with six RBIs in the Padres’ season-best fourth straight win. The grand slam was the first of his career and the two homers gave him 32 for the season.
The A’s avoided a shutout in the last of the eighth when Brent Rooker bombed his 26th home run of the season off the Padres’ fourth pitcher, Ray Kerr. Rooker finished with two of Oakland’s six hits.
Tigers 5, Angels 3
Jake Rogers hit a pair of home runs and drove in four runs as Detroit completed a three-game series sweep with a victory over Los Angeles in Anaheim, Calif.
Miguel Diaz pitched one scoreless inning to start the game. Winning pitcher Joey Wentz (3-11) tossed 4 1/3 innings, giving up three runs and five hits. Alex Lange got the last three outs for his 24th save of the season as the Tigers won their fourth straight game.
Randal Grichuk hit a two-run homer for the Angles. Losing pitcher Kenny Rosenberg (1-2) allowed all five runs on seven hits in five innings.
Dodgers 6, Mariners 1
Jason Heyward went 3-for-5 with a home run and a double as Los Angeles shook off any after-effects of clinching the NL West title by defeating host Seattle.
Austin Barnes and James Outman also homered for the Dodgers, whose 6-2 victory in 11 innings Saturday night clinched their 10th division title in 11 seasons.
The Mariners went 2-4 on their homestand against the two Los Angeles teams. Right-hander Logan Gilbert (13-6) took his first loss since June 28, ending a streak of eight consecutive victories.
Diamondbacks 6, Cubs 2
Ketel Marte blasted a two-run homer and Arizona helped its playoff chances with a win against Chicago to complete a three-game sweep in Phoenix.
Marte had two hits and two runs for the Diamondbacks, who took sole possession of the NL’s second wild card, one half-game ahead of the Cubs and Miami Marlins, who are each 78-72. Arizona starter Ryne Nelson allowed two runs and four hits in 3 1/3 innings.
Chicago starter Jordan Wicks (3-1) was tagged for three runs and four hits in 4 1/3 innings. Ian Happ had three hits and a run for the Cubs, who have lost five games in a row.

AP TOP 25: NO. 13 ALABAMA IS OUT OF THE TOP 10 FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 2015. GEORGIA REMAINS NO. 1
(AP) — No. 13 Alabama is out of the top 10 of The Associated Press college football poll for the first time in eight years, and Georgia remained No. 1 on Sunday.
Georgia received 57 first-place votes in the AP Top 25. Michigan held at No. 2 with two first-place votes. No. 3 Texas flipped spots with No. 4 Florida State. The Longhorns received three first-place votes and the Seminoles got one.
After scraping by South Florida on Saturday, Alabama (2-1) saw its streak of consecutive AP poll appearances ranked in the top 10 snapped at 128. That was the second-longest such streak in the history of the poll behind Miami’s 137 from 1985-93.
The Crimson Tide are out of the top 10 for the first time since Sept. 27, 2015. The Tide dropped out of the top 10 that September after losing at Mississippi but moved back in on Oct. 3 and went on to win a national championship.
Georgia now has the longest active run of top-10 rankings with 37.
The ugly 17-3 win against USF marked Alabama’s first game against a non-Power Five conference opponent since 2007 in which the Tide failed to score at least 20 points. In its previous 42 games against non-Power Five opponents, Alabama was unbeaten, with an average margin of victory of 40 points.
The rest of the top 10 included No. 6 Ohio State, No. 7 Penn State, No. 8 Washington, No. 9 Notre Dame and No. 10 Oregon.
The Buckeyes will visit the Fighting Irish next Saturday as the centerpiece of a huge schedule of ranked vs. ranked games.
Alabama still has the longest streak in the country of consecutive weeks being ranked at 249.
That’s the second best of all time but still a long way behind the record. Nebraska, under Tom Osborne, was ranked for 348 straight weeks from 1981-2002.
The next-best active streak behind Alabama belongs to Ohio State at 182, though the Buckeyes were not eligible for the first few regular-season polls of the 2020 season.
Georgia’s streak is at 102. Michigan is fourth best at 34 and Utah has the fifth-longest active Top 25 streak at 25.
IN AND OUT
Kansas State was the only team to fall out of the ranking this week after losing at Missouri on a 61-yard field goal as time expired.
No. 25 Florida moved back in for the first time since Sept. 24 of last season after upsetting Tennessee.
“It validates your plan, what you’re selling to a degree,” Florida coach Billy Napier said after the game. “That’s what you want as a leader. … That’s a lot more fun.”
The Vols dropped 12 spots to No. 23.
With the Gators back in the AP Top 25, Florida State, Miami and Florida are all ranked for the first time since Sept. 17, 2017.
The only two ranked teams in the Big 12 this week are the ones leaving after this season, Texas and Oklahoma.
Though, to be fair, Colorado and Utah will be joining from the Pac-12 and the Utes are No. 11 and Buffaloes No. 19, after winning a double-overtime thriller against Colorado State.
Pac-12 – 8 (Nos. 5, 8, 10, 11, 14, 19, 21, 22).
SEC – 6 (Nos. 1, 12, 13, 15, 23, 25).
ACC – 4 (Nos. 4, 17, 18, 20).
Big Ten – 4 (Nos. 2, 6, 7, 24).
Big 12 – 2 (Nos. 3, 16).
Independent – 1 (No. 9).
RANKED vs. RANKED
Doesn’t get much better than this slate of games.
No. 6 Ohio State at No. 9 Notre Dame. For the second straight year, it’s a top-10 matchup.
No. 15 Ole Miss at No. 13 Alabama. Tide leads series 9-3 when both are ranked.
No. 22 UCLA at No. 11 Utah. The second meeting with both teams ranked. The first was last year.
No. 19 Colorado at No. 10 Oregon. First regular-season meeting with both teams ranked.
No. 14 Oregon State at No. 21 Washington State. The Beavers and Cougars, the Pac-12’s left-behinds, have played 98 times but never before when both teams were ranked.
No. 24 Iowa at No. 7 Penn State. Three of the last four meetings came when both were ranked.
MIKE BABCOCK RESIGNS AS BLUE JACKETS COACH AMID INVESTIGATION INVOLVING PLAYERS’ PHOTOS
(AP) — Mike Babcock, the coach with a Stanley Cup championship and two Olympic gold medals on his resume, has lost his last two jobs in the NHL.
Last time, it was for losing too many games. This time, it was for his interactions with players that followed a disturbing pattern of past behavior.
Babcock resigned as coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday after just two months on the job, less than a week after his requests for personal photos from players in a bonding effort drew criticism as too invasive.
The team announced Babcock’s abrupt departure in the aftermath of an investigation by the NHL Players’ Association into his conduct. Pascal Vincent was named Babcock’s replacement and signed a two-year contract through the 2024-25 season.
“Our players deserve to be treated with respect in the workplace,” NHLPA executive director Marty Walsh said. “Unfortunately, that was not the case in Columbus. The club’s decision to move forward with a new head coach is the appropriate course of action.”
Former NHL player Paul Bissonnette reported on his podcast Tuesday that Babcock was asking players to show him photos and projecting them for others to see in an invasion of privacy. Babcock and captain Boone Jenner denied the report, saying it was just a way of the new coach getting to know players.
Still, the players union launched a review and updated the league Friday on its findings.
“This was a difficult decision on everyone’s part, but one we felt necessary to ensure our focus remains on the players and the team’s upcoming season,” general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said in a statement. “On behalf of the entire Blue Jackets organization, we want to thank Mike for his hard work and the professionalism he has shown in working together on a plan to step down.”
Babcock’s conduct was under the microscope given his history of polarizing, old-school coaching techniques, many of which came to light after he was fired by Toronto in 2019. This was his first NHL job since.
“Upon reflection, it has become clear that continuing as head coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets was going to be too much of a distraction,” Babcock said. “While I’m disappointed to not have had the opportunity to continue the work we’ve begun, I know it’s in the best interest of the organization for me to step away at this time. I wish everyone in the organization well in the upcoming season.”
Babcock, the 2008 Stanley Cup-winning coach with Detroit, said upon taking the Columbus job in July that he evolved as a coach and learned how better to deal with players following his firing by Toronto.
A report surfaced after the Maple Leafs fired Babcock that he had asked a player to share his ranking of teammates from hardest- to least-hardest working and then shared that with the rest of the group. Other former players expressed their dissatisfaction with Babcock, who at one point was considered the best coach in hockey.
Instead, Babcock’s time in the NHL might be over, and with it comes questions about Kekalainen’s future in Columbus.
Babcock was the third coach Kekalainen has hired since taking over in February 2013. The Blue Jackets have missed the playoffs each of the past three seasons.
Vincent, who turns 52 later this month, was one of the candidates for the job when Babcock got it. He was an assistant on former coach Brad Larsen’s staff the previous two seasons after four years as coach of the American Hockey League’s Manitoba Moose.
Kekalainen called Vincent an outstanding coach who “knows our players and organization and is respected by everyone here.”
“He was a strong candidate for our head coaching position several months ago and is in the best position to help us navigate this change as we begin camp and lead our team moving forward,” Kekalainen said.
Vincent said it was a difficult day but that he was looking forward to the opportunity.
“We have a great group of guys that have been working very hard to prepare for the season,” he said. “My focus will be to work with our staff to help them get better every day and be ready for what we believe will be an exciting season.”

SAHITH THEEGALA WINS THE FORTINET CHAMPIONSHIP IN NAPA FOR HIS FIRST PGA TOUR VICTORY
NAPA, Calif. (AP) Sahith Theegala talked all week about the importance of having nearly three dozen family members and friends following him at the Fortinet Championship. Playing with the lead on Sunday, the 25-year-old from California did everything he could to keep his supporters in high spirits.
Theegala made more than enough birdies to cover for his mistakes, shooting a 4-under 68 for a two-shot victory at Silverado, his first win in 74 starts on the PGA Tour.
Theegala started with a two-shot lead and birdied three of the opening five holes. No one got close to him the rest of the way.
“No matter the good golf or the bad golf, they just have my back. It’s a team win,” Theegala said, his mom and dad by his side on the 18th green. “It’s not just a win for me, it’s a win for the whole family.”
Theegala finished with seven birdies and three bogeys, including one after he hit a tee shot that landed in a fairway bunker on a different hole. With a three-shot lead, he hit his drive and his layup into the rough on the par-5 18th hole and tapped in for a 6. He finished at 21-under 267.
S.H. Kim (68) finished second, and Cam Davis (70) was another shot behind.
Justin Thomas had his worst round of the week in his final tuneup for the Ryder Cup in Rome, closing with an even-par 72 to finish six shots back. Max Homa, the two-time defending champion and Thomas’ U.S. teammate, closed with a 69 to tie for seventh.
Theegala, a son of Indian immigrants who played in college at Pepperdine, made the Tour Championship as a rookie last year. Last month, he made a bogey on the final hole of the BMW Championship that prevented a return to East Lake, ending his season on a sour note.
Even though he already is set for all the $20 million signature events next year, he wanted to play at Silverado because he loves the tournament and competition.
It paid off in a big way. The victory gets him into the Sentry Tournament of Champions and assures his spot in the Masters.
Before his breakthrough in Napa, Theegala had close calls at Phoenix, Hartford and Sea Island, endearing himself to fans.
His family’s support was unwavering. The afternoon ended with an emotional Theegala wiping his eyes and hugging and shaking hands with just about everyone in sight.
“To be able to share this moment with all of them is really special and something I’ll never forget,” Theegala said. “Through the highs and lows this week they’re cheering me on and supporting me. They’ve been that way since I’ve started my pro career. It’s awesome just hearing the chants every single hole and it definitely gave me a lot of energy.”
Theegala overcame his mistakes with steady iron play and superb putting. His three bogeys were one more than he had in the first three rounds combined. Each time, he steadied himself.
Theegala dropped a shot on the par-4 sixth hole after hitting his tee shot way right into a fairway bunker on No. 9. He responded by hitting a wedge 13 inches from the hole for birdie on the par-4 eighth, then made another bogey on No. 10.
Theegala birdied three of the next six holes, and after a par on the 17th, he was able to soak in the cheers from the gallery as he walked toward the 18th green.
Following bogeys with bold shotmaking is nothing new for Theegala. This time, he did it often enough to earn a trophy.
“That’s been the strength of my game for so long,” he said. “I have a pretty short memory on and off the golf course. It works out well in golf. This week I just felt so relaxed and felt like my game was in a really good place.”
Kim, one of the best putters on tour, played bogey-free and had four birdies on the back nine.
Thomas began the day with a chance for a win that would erase any doubt about U.S. captain Zach Johnson’s decision to pick him for the Ryder Cup team after a down year. But he bogeyed Nos. 2 and 5 and turned in 3 over before salvaging his round with a bogey-free back nine.

RICHARDSON SCORES TWICE BEFORE LEAVING WITH CONCUSSION AS COLTS BEAT TEXANS 31-20
HOUSTON (AP) Anthony Richardson rushed for two touchdowns before leaving with a concussion and Gardner Minshew threw for 171 yards and a TD as the Indianapolis Colts held off the Houston Texans for a 31-20 win on Sunday.
It was the first win for coach Shane Steichen, who was hired in February after spending the last two seasons as Philadelphia’s offensive coordinator.
The Colts led by 18 at halftime and managed only a field goal in the second half. But their dominant start was enough to snap an eight-game skid dating to last season. It was their first win since Nov. 13 at Las Vegas.
Richardson gave the Colts (1-1) an early lead when he dashed 18 yards untouched on their first drive.
C.J. Stroud fumbled when he was sacked by Samson Ebukam, and it was recovered by Indianapolis at the 15. Richardson made it 14-0 when he ran 15 yards for the score on the next play.
The rookie quarterback, who was selected by Indy with the No. 4 pick in the NFL draft, hit the back of his head when he was pushed down at the end of the score, but he popped right up to celebrate. He remained in the game for two more possessions before going to the medical tent and then to the locker room.
Stroud, the second overall pick in the draft, threw for 384 yards and two touchdowns . But he was sacked six times and hit nine other times playing behind a line filled with backups. The Texans (0-2) lost four starters on the line during camp and were also without star left tackle Laremy Tunsil on Sunday because of a knee injury.
The Texans closed to 31-20 on a 23-yard touchdown reception by rookie Tank Dell with about 10 minutes to go. It was the first career touchdown for the third-round pick from the University of Houston.
Houston got a stop after that but wouldn’t get any closer after missing a long field goal on the next possession.
Stroud threw his first career touchdown pass when he connected with Nico Collins for a 12-yard score that cut the lead to 14-7 with about three minutes left in the first quarter. Collins finished with seven receptions for a career-high 146 yards.
Minshew took over for Richardson in the second quarter and orchestrated a 76-yard drive capped by an 11-yard scoring run by Zack Moss that made it 21-7.
The Colts pushed it to 28-10 when Kylen Granson scored on a 4-yard pass just before halftime.
Richardson is the third QB in NFL history with three rushing touchdowns in his first two games, joining Daunte Culpepper and Jack Thompson. Richardson, who is 21 years and 118 days old, is also the youngest quarterback with two rushing touchdowns in a game.
Josh Jones filled in for Tunsil and had a holding penalty in the fourth quarter that negated a touchdown by Dell. The Texans settled for a field goal on that drive to cut the lead to 31-13.
Houston S Eric Murray left in the first quarter with a concussion. … Indianapolis C Ryan Kelly left in the third quarter with a concussion.
Houston wide receiver John Metchie III made his NFL debut after missing all last season undergoing treatment for leukemia. Metchie, who sat out last week with a hamstring injury, had one reception for 17 yards.
Colts: Visit Baltimore next Sunday.
Texans: Visit the Jaguars next Sunday.

STORM CHASERS BEST INDIANS IN SERIES FINALE, 11-5
PAPILLION, Neb. –The Indianapolis Indians could not overcome a trio of three-run innings by the Omaha Storm Chasers on Sunday afternoon at Werner Park, 11-5.
After their lead was cut to one by an RBI single from Vinny Capra in the top of the third inning, the Storm Chasers (65-74, 27-40) scored three runs in the bottom of the frame courtesy of an RBI double off the bat of John Rave, a single from Morgan McCullough and a Jose Briceno home run to left. Omaha followed with back-to-back three-run innings in the sixth and seventh to put the game out of reach for Indianapolis (66-76. 33-35).
Matt Gorski launched a home run in the fourth to make it 5-2, and the Indians batters notched their only multi-run inning in the seventh to put the game within three before Omaha responded with their third three-run inning. A lead-off single from Mason Martin and a walk issued to Dom Nunez set up a Nick Gonzales RBI double, and RBI singles from Capra and Ryan Vilade tallied Indianapolis’ final runs.
Indians starter Dauri Moreta (L, 0-1) worked 2.0 innings on the mound, giving up two runs on two hits while striking out a pair of batters. Drew Parrish (W, 5-6) pitched 5.0 innings, yielding two runs on three hits and two punchouts.
The Indians will return to Victory Field for their final homestand of 2023, a six-game tilt with the Rochester Red Wings on Tuesday at 6:35 PM ET. Neither team has named a starter.

“This was a big win for us after the conference season we had last year, to score three goals against Rutgers. We went up two-nil and they came back, but we had the right mentality to fight to get the win at the end. When they scored the second goal, I thought they had all the momentum, and they were probably the better team. But we found a way to change the narrative of the game. And obviously, what a great goal at the end from Paige so. I am so proud of this team. I think we needed a game like this where we were maybe behind or tied up where we find a way to win. Overall, a really good performance and a great three points. Now, onto the next one.”

PURDUE SITS IN SECOND AFTER 36 HOLES
EAST LANSING, Mich. – Just like she did in the season-opening Boilermaker Classic, Kan Bunnabodee continued to lead Purdue Women’s Golf by pacing the Boilermakers on the first day of the Mary Fossum Invitational. The fifth-year senior fired rounds of 72 (E) and 71 (-1), and the Boilermakers found themselves in second place (-2) after 36 holes at Forest Akers Golf Course.
Purdue opened with a 2-over 290 in the morning before shaving off six strokes during the afternoon round, carding a 284 (-6) as a team thanks to four rounds of par-or-better. With 18 holes remaining, the Boilermakers sit just eight shots back of host Michigan State (-10).
The Boilermakers made more birdies than any other team on the first day of the tournament, making 29 of them. Purdue also paced the field in par-3 scoring (-1) and par-4 scoring (+2).
On the individual leaderboard, three Boilermakers cracked the Top 10. Bunnabodee is tied for fourth at 1-under, making nine birdies throughout the day, more than any other golfer in the field. She found success on the par 3s, playing the short holes 3-under. Ashley Kozlowski is tied for sixth after playing the par 72 course even par through two rounds. Natasha Kiel opened with a round of 73 (+1) before countering a pair of bogeys with two birdies in the afternoon for a 72 (E). The newest Boilermaker is in ninth place heading into the final round.
Jocelyn Bruch shot the round of the day for Purdue, firing a 2-under 70 in the second round. She started the afternoon round with a birdie at the par-4 fourth. After seven straight pars, she birdied the par-3 12th but gave it right back on No. 13. A birdie at the par-4 15th got her back to 2-under before she concluded her day with six pars. Bruch was 3-under on the par 4s to top the 84-player field in par-4 scoring on Sunday.
The final round begins Monday morning (Sept. 18) with an 8:30 a.m. ET shotgun start. The Boilermakers will be paired with Michigan State (-10) and Ohio State (+5), as the three Big Ten teams sit atop the leaderboard.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – In a tightly-contested battle to open Big Ten Conference play, the Purdue soccer team was edged by No. 18 Northwestern 1-0 on Sunday afternoon at Folk Field.
The Boilermakers played right with the 18th-ranked and unbeaten Wildcats for the duration of the 90-minute contest, but a goal in the 57th minute proved to be the difference. NU’s score came after a red card was shown to Purdue to set up the goal-scoring free kick.
The Boilermakers (3-6-0, 0-1-0 Big Ten) played the final 34 minutes down a player but continued to fight for chances and earn opportunities up until the final whistle. However, the Wildcats (7-0-2, 1-0-0 Big Ten) prevented the home side from getting the equalizer.
Purdue out-shot Northwestern 10-9, and both teams had three shots on goal. The Boilermakers held a 5-1 advantage in corner kicks while NU had 11 fouls called against them to the home side’s 10. Two yellow cards also were issued to the Wildcats.
Freshman forward Lauren Omholt had a game-high-tying three shots, with a game-best two shots on target. Senior midfielder Emily Mathews and junior forward Gracie Dunaway each recorded two shots, with one of Mathews’ going on goal. Senior goalkeeper Charlotte Cyr and sophomore goalkeeper Kailey Kimball each made one save, and NU’s keeper stopped all three shots she faced.
Sunday’s conference-opener came after both Northwestern and Purdue had a week off from competition. Of the Wildcats’ seven wins, today was just their second with a one-goal margin of victory. No. 18 NU is the Boilermakers’ fourth top-25 opponent through their opening nine games of the 2023 campaign.
Prior to the game, Purdue recognized its senior class of Cyr, Mathews, Zoie Allen, Kelsi Carrico, Lauren Holleran, Callie Ingram, Nicole Kevdzija and Victoria Kevdzija. At halftime, Boilermaker soccer alumnae were honored on the field to cap the Alumnae Reunion Weekend.
The home side had several good chances in the opening 15-plus minutes, as Dunaway sent a shot wide in the fifth. Ten minutes later, Omholt received a great ball on the right side, but the defense prevented an open attacker on her centering pass. The next minute, Dunaway beat a defender to send a cross in from near the end line on the right side, but the ball was corralled by the Wildcat keeper.
Northwestern’s first shot came in the 28th minute, which was wide on a chance from inside the six.
Dunaway quickly answered with a shot blocked from point-blank range in the 29th minute. A great save by NU followed in the 31st minute, as Omholt, from junior forward Megan Hutchinson, sent a shot in that just barely was stopped before it trickled through the goalkeeper’s legs.
Freshman defender Zoe Cuneio and the Boilermaker defense had several key blocks in the 35th and 36th minutes to prevent the first Northwestern shot on goal. Purdue had another great opportunity two minutes later off a Mathews corner kick to the far post, but a pair of shots were blocked in the congested six-yard box.
Cyr’s one save of the game came in the 43rd minute, on a shot off a free kick into the penalty area.
Purdue out-shot Northwestern 5-4 in the opening 45 minutes, and both teams put one shot on target. The Old Gold and Black registered the only two corner kicks of the period.
Minutes into the second half, midfielder Nicole Kevdzija had a header off a corner kick that was just high to nearly give Purdue the lead.
Northwestern took a 1-0 advantage at 56:21 as Caterina Regazzoni scored on a free kick from just outside the 18. The set-piece goal came after Cyr was shown a red card when she came out to play the ball outside of the penalty area and it deflected off her hands.
The Boilermakers looked to respond quickly, as Omholt had a one-on-one opportunity at the top of the box saved in the 60th minute on another nice play by NU’s goalkeeper.
Several more chances followed, including one off a free kick by Mathews in the 68th minute that followed a yellow card, before Omholt had another one-on-one chance. This time her shot, in the 83rd minute, was wide after a great pass on the run from Nicole Kevdzija.
The Boilermakers continued to fight for chances until time expired. That included a shot by Mathews in the 86th minute that was saved.
Up next, Purdue is on the road for a pair of Big Ten contests. The east coast swing begins at Maryland on Thursday, September 21, at 7 p.m. ET, and concludes at Rutgers on September 24.
NICK BAFIA NAMED PFL DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
INDIANAPOLIS – Butler defensive back Nick Bafia was recognized as the Pioneer Football League’s Defensive Player of the Week after his outstanding performance against the Little Giants on Saturday night. The junior from Naperville capped off the Wabash game with a 66-yard interception return for a touchdown.
The Bulldog DB had a busy day, finishing with a team-leading 11 tackles (eight solo), 1.5 tackles for loss, and forced a fumble on Wabash’s first play from scrimmage. He now has 103 career tackles at BU to go along with his first collegiate interception.
Bafia and the Bulldogs will take their 2-1 overall record in to DeLand, Fla. on Saturday to face the Stetson Hatters at 12 PM.
****************IUPUI WOMEN’S SOCCER********************
JAGUARS PLAY CLEVELAND STATE TO 2-2 DRAW
INDIANAPOLIS – The IUPUI women’s soccer team got first half goals from
Caroline Kelley and Cassie Rodriguez and ultimately played Cleveland State to a 2-2 draw at Michael A. Carroll Stadium on Sunday (Sept. 17). The Jaguars conceded a pair of second half goals in the draw, but extended their unbeaten streak to five straight, going 3-0-2 in their past five outings.
It marked IUPUI’s second straight draw to open the Horizon League season.
“I just don’t think we brought the energy we needed to be successful in our conference,” head coach Chris Johnson said. “The goal is to finish in the top three or four in our conference this year and we are not putting forth the effort level it takes to be successful out here.
“I think they thought that Cleveland State was going to fold up shop and go home and credit to them, they came out in the second half and wanted it more than we did.”
IUPUI (6-2-2, 0-0-2 HL) drew first blood and built a 2-0 halftime lead, albeit on just five shot attempts. Kelley scored in the 19th minute off a brilliant combination from Emily Tobin and Emma Antoine setting up the score. Tobin took possession near midfield and played Antoine out wide, who centered to Kelley for her fourth score of the year.
In the 36th minute, Rodriguez tallied her first score of the year off an assist from Cassie Renner. Renner recycled Jessica Jacobs corner kick from the back post, centering a pass to Rodriguez who scored from in close.
The Jaguars just missed building on the lead early in the second half when Shannon Ott had a pair of golden chances in the 52nd minute. She had an initial header ping off the crossbar and then a rebound attempt fly wide of target.
Cleveland State (3-5-1, 0-1-1 HL) cut the lead in half in the 53rd minute when Erica Leinweber’s volley snuck past Ashton Kudlo, who had stumbled in retreating to her back line. The Vikings then tied the score in the 63rd minute on Rylee Bussen’s header of Kathryn Ramicone’s restart after a foul deep in IUPUI territory.
CSU had the better run of play down the stretch, but couldn’t get anything else past Kudlo, who finished with a season-high seven saves. CSU finished with a 19-12 shot advantage and 9-4 margin in shots on goal.
Ott led IUPUI with three shot attempts and Sam Slimak had two from her midfield spot.
“If we want to be successful, we’ve got to own our home field and that means three points every time we step on the field here at home,” Johnson said. “We did not show that here today.”
IUPUI will remain home to host Detroit Mercy on Thursday night (Sept. 21) at 6:00 p.m. at Michael A. Carroll Stadium. That match will be broadcast on ESPN+ as Jonathan Matthes (pxp) will be on the call.
***************BALL STATE FIELD HOCKEY*********************
FIELD HOCKEY EXTENDS WIN STREAK TO THREE; DEFEATS SLU 2-1 IN HOME OPENER
MUNCIE, Ind. – The Ball State field hockey team (3-4) extended its win streak to three for the first time in four years after posting a 2-1 victory over Saint Louis (1-6) Sunday afternoon in the Cardinals home opener on their new turf at the Briner Sports Complex.
After a scoreless first quarter, the Cardinals got on the board first at the 18:02 mark in the second frame of action after
Michaela Graney took advantage of a penalty corner.
Staunch defense held the Billikens scoreless for the entire first half of play. However, Saint Louis was able to find an equalizer at the start of the fourth quarter.
Ball State turned its competitive nature up a notch and would begin controlling the tempo of the ball game.
Finally, the Cardinals aggressiveness in the scoring circle paid off allowing Fleur Knopert to find the back of the cage with just under nine minutes remaining to give Ball State back the 2-1 advantage over Saint Louis.
As time was winding down, the Billikens pulled their goalie to allow more players on the field, but their tactics didn’t work as Ball State was able to hold off Saint Louis from scoring despite their last-minute efforts.
For the game, Knopert led Ball State offensively with four shots on goal while defensively, Hannah Johnston finished the day with three saves.
The Ball State field hockey team remains home when it returns to Mid-American Conference action Friday against Central Michigan. The game is slated to begin at 2 pm ET at the Briner Sports Complex.
*******************NOTRE DAME VOLLEYBALL**********************
TOLEDO, Ohio – The Notre Dame Fighting Irish picked up their fourth consecutive win as they downed the Toledo Rockets for the second time this season on Sunday, September 17 at Savage Arena. The Irish won in straight sets on the road as they head into conference play on Friday with a record of 6-2.
The Irish were led by Sydney Palazzolo with 16 kills, followed by Ava Lange who recorded 10 kills. Charity McDowell finished with seven kills, an impressive .875 hitting percentage, and led Notre Dame with five blocks. Phyona Schrader tallied seven kills and a .417 hitting percentage as well for the Irish. Nicole Drewnick dished out 36 assists for Notre Dame, averaging 12 assists per set.
Notre Dame came out strong in set one as they claimed an early 12-4 advantage over the Rockets. A block assist from Charity McDowell and Nicole Drewnick gave the Irish their largest lead of the game as they led by 10 at 18-8. The Rockets closed the gap to eight at 22-14, but the Irish and Rockets went point for point until a final kill from Lange gave the Irish the set one win at 25-16.
The Rockets weren’t going anywhere. While the Irish were able to take the lead at 6-5, the Toledo offense took off as they outscored the Irish 11-2 to claim the lead 16-8. The Irish battled back to tie it up at 19-19 after a kill from Lange and regained the lead at 20-19 on an ace from Palazzolo.
A Palazzolo kill tied it up at 23-23, while a Lange kill tied it up at 24-24 and a McDowell kill made it set point at 25-24. The Rockets would come back to take the lead 28-27, but the Irish would close out the set with three straight points. A kill from Palazzolo, a block assist from Drewnick and Schrader, and a Toledo attacking error allowed the Irish to clinch the set two win at 30-28.
The Irish carried their momentum into set three as they led 12-7 to start. While the Rockets cut the gap to three at 18-15, the Irish would pull away yet again to make it a six point advantage at 23-17. A kill from Trump and an attacking error would give Notre Dame the third set at 25-19 to complete the road sweep. Notre Dame recorded an impressive 20 kills in the final set.
The Irish are back at Purcell Pavilion on Friday, Sept. 22 to open up ACC play against Boston College and on Sunday, Sept 24, the Irish will host Syracuse.

******************VALPO WOMEN’S TENNIS*********************
CZERWONKA, SILVA WIN IN SEMIFINALS, FINISH AS RUNNERS-UP AT BGSU
Fifth-year senior Olivia Czerwonka (Kenosha, Wis. / Saint Joseph Catholic Academy) and sophomore Moira Silva (Houston, Texas / Houston Tennis Academy) were victorious in their morning matches against a Toledo tandem on Sunday to earn a place in the championship round of the BGSU Invite, hosted by Bowling Green this weekend in Bowling Green, Ohio. The Beacon pair dropped their championship showdown to a different Rocket combination later in the day to finish as the runners-up in the tournament.
How It Happened
This tournament utilized a unique format where a Valpo duo was matched up with a duo from another school for one doubles match and two singles matches and whichever pair won two of three moved on to the next round.
Czerwonka and Silva knocked off the second-seeded Toledo tandem of Tallamraju/Opaciuch. The victory started with a convincing 8-2 doubles triumph before both players won their singles matches in straight sets. Silva outdid Tallamraju 6-3, 6-3, while Czerwonka cruised to a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Opaciuch.
The win on Sunday morning allowed Silva and Czerwonka to advance to the championship match, where they fell to the top-seeded Toledo pair of Alcala/Rondon 5-8 in doubles and in straight sets in both singles matches.
Inside the Match
The semifinal and final matches for Czerwonka and Silva came against Toledo players who are part of a Rockets program that went 20-4 overall and 10-0 in the Mid-American Conference last season.
Silva’s Sunday singles success came over Shalini Tallamraju, who was a Second Team All-MAC performer last season. She earned MAC All-Tournament team honors each of the last two years and posted a glowing 29-3 overall record and 10-0 MAC mark in singles play last season.
Czerwonka dropped just two total games in her dominant victory over Natasha Opaciuch, who played at Cincinnati last season before joining Toledo this year.
Czerwonka and Silva ran into a buzz saw in the championship match as their extremely successful weekend came to an end. Silva fell to Toledo’s Cassie Alcala, who has twice been named MAC Player of the Year (outright once, co-player of the year once), burst onto the scene as MAC Freshman of the Year in 2020-21 and has earned first team all-conference honors in each of her first three seasons.
Czerwonka’s semifinal victory in singles was the 67th of her collegiate career. After shattering the program record on Saturday, she will establish a new Valpo standard with each win for the remainder of the season.
Czerwonka’s doubles win in the semifinal round was the 65th of her collegiate career, second in program history behind her sister Claire (72).
Silva is up to 20 career doubles wins as only a sophomore, while her singles win accumulation has reached 23.
The Beacons will
The Beacons will play a pair of home dual matches as part of a busy homecoming Saturday on Valpo’s campus. The squad starts the day with a 9 a.m. first serve against Purdue Northwest at the Valpo Tennis Complex before hosting Indiana Wesleyan in a match that gets going at 3 p.m.
HICKEY, JANUSKI EARN ALL-TOURNAMENT ACCOLADES
The Valpo volleyball team was represented by a pair of players on the Purdue Fort Wayne Invitational All-Tournament Team, as sophomore libero Emma Hickey (Granger, Ind./Penn) and senior middle Mallory Januski (Bourbonnais, Ill./Bradley-Bourbonnais) earned the honors for their performances over the course of the weekend.
Hickey averaged a team-best 5.50 digs/set over the three tournament matches, leading all players in all three contests. She picked up 19 digs in the Friday contest against SIUE before posting 18 digs in both of Valpo’s three-set wins on Saturday over Miami (Ohio) and Purdue Fort Wayne. She enters MVC play with 937 career digs, closing in on becoming the 24th player in program history to reach the 1,000-dig milestone.
Januski stood out on both sides of the net for the Beacons throughout the weekend. She opened with 10 kills on .474 hitting versus SIUE, tallied 10 kills on just 14 swings as she hit .643 and led all players with four blocks against Miami and closed the tournament with seven kills on .353 hitting and a match-best five blocks in the sweep of the host Mastodons. For the weekend, Januski led the team in both kills (2.70/set) and blocks (1.10/set) while hitting at a .480 clip.
For Hickey, it is her first All-Tournament honor of the season and the second of her career. Januski picks up her third All-Tournament accolade of the season and fourth of her career, becoming the first Valpo player since Allison Ketcham in 2018 to be named to three All-Tournament Teams in a single season.
**************U OF INDY WOMEN’S TENNIS*******************
PAIS, HOLLWEG, SENSI ADVANCE TO SINGLES SEMIFINALS ON DAY TWO OF ITAS
GREENWOOD, Ind. – The new kids on the block continue to impress for University of Indianapolis tennis as the Hounds are in dominant position after day two of the ITA DII Midwest Regional, hosted across three sites in Greenwood, Ind. and Whiteland, Ind.
The trio of Tyffaine Pais, Ana Hollweg and Benedetta Sensi all have fought past the round of 64, 32 and 16 to make it to the quarterfinals, with only Malak Arafat of Wayne State standing in the Greyhounds way of a Midwest Champion and a trip to Rome, GA for the ITA Cup.
But singles aren’t the only place where the Hounds are thriving, as the new pairing of Diane Flament and Sensi have advanced to the semis of the doubles bracket. However, due an injury of Flament in singles, they will not have the chance to continue.
HOW IT HAPPENED
Picking right back up from yesterday, Pais grabbed an efficient 6-3, 6-1 victory in her R16 match to etch her spot in the quarters, a performance she replicated, dominating her quarterfinal foe 6-2, 6-3 with little strain.
Hollweg faced a bit of adversity from her first match, taking the first 6-3 but dropping set two 6-4. It didn’t faze the freshman as she rattled off a 10-7 third set. Wanting to wrap up her day quick, she dropped Ewa Samberger of Drury in straight sets, 6-1, 6-1.
For Flament and Sensi, it has been smooth sailing to this point, the pair picking up a 6-2 dub in the R16 and then a 6-3 victory in the quarterfinals.
Flament kept her pace from yesterday in singles, going 6-0, 6-3 in her first match, but suffering an injury in match two, ending her tournament run. Valentine Colin, another one of the newcomers to the Hounds, saw her first match of the day be her last, losing in an absolute thriller of a three-set match, with the final set going to an 18-16 decision.
Maissane Aik, after battling through a tough foe in her first match of the day, fell to the No. 2-seeded Paula Ballesteros of Southwest Baptist in two close sets on her sweet-16 match.
It is win or go home tomorrow for the Hounds as they face off in the final day of the ITA DII Midwest Regional. Action is set to kick off at 8 a.m.
Of the newcomers, Tyffaine Pais, Ana Hollweg, Valentine Colin, and Benedetta Sensi all had quality starts to their Greyhound career. Pais captured a straight-sets victory against an opponent from Davenport, while Hollweg also ended it in two, winning 6-2, 6-3 over Carolina Velazquez of Maryville. Victory was not as smooth for Colin and Sensi, each being forced into a third set to find the win.
Returners Diane Flament and Maissane Aik drew into their experience well, making quick work of their opponents to grab straight-set dubs. Maria Fiacan suffered a first round loss on day one.
Doubles saw Diane Flament and Benedetta win 6-3 over a familiar pair of GLVC-foes in Ghada Dirninger and Elsa Pascual of Southwest Baptist. The other two pairs of Greyhound doubles pairing were handed losses on their first day of the tournament.

***********TODAY IN BASEBALL HISTORY************
1866 Andrew Johnson becomes the first sitting president to witness a baseball game when he briefly attends an amateur contest on the White Lot, a field directly opposite the White House. The hometown Washington Nationals lose, 33-28, to the visiting Brooklyn Excelsiors but compile a 10-5 record this season.
1900 At Brooklyn’s Washington Park, Deputy Sheriff O’Donnell seizes the St. Louis share of gate receipts to reimburse right-hander Gus Weyhing, recently released by the Cardinals after posting a 3-4 record in eight starts with the team. Cannonball, who will sign with the Superbas next week as a free agent, claimed he didn’t receive ten days of pay.
1903 The Pirates, with their doubleheader sweep from the Beaneaters at Exposition Park, go nine games ahead of New York with eight games to play to clinch the National League pennant. In a decision made today, Pittsburgh will represent the National League in the first World Series against the upstart American League, playing Boston, who captured their circuit’s flag yesterday.
1908 🇲🇽 Bob Rhoads, outdueling Frank Arellanes, the only Mexican-American playing in the majors, tosses a no-hitter, beating the Red Sox at Cleveland’s League Park, 2-1. Four years ago, the Indians right-hander held Boston hitless until Chick Stahl singled with two outs in the ninth inning.
1930 The Yankees edge the Browns at Sportsman’s Park in ten innings, 7-6, with New York starter Red Ruffing helping his own cause by hitting two home runs during his seven innings of work. The future Hall of Fame right-hander, who will hit .258 in 257 pinch-hitting appearances, collects 36 career home runs, 34 of them as a pitcher, finishing second to Wes Ferrell’s total of 37 when he completes his 22-year tenure in the major leagues.
1931 A’s southpaw Lefty Grove becomes the first pitcher since 1920 to win 30 games when he beats the White Sox, 2-1. Only two more pitchers will win as many games this century, with Dizzy Dean winning 30 for the Cardinals in 1934 and Denny McLain earning 31 victories thirty-four years later for the Tigers.
1932 In their last home games of the season, three thousand fans see their hometown Browns split a twin bill with Yankees, dropping a 7-2 decision in the opener before winning the nightcap in ten innings, 2-1. The sixth-place American League club establishes the record for lowest yearly attendance, attracting 112,558 patrons, averaging about 1,500 fans a game at Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis.
1954 In front of only 6,913 fans at Detroit’s Brigg Stadium, the Indians, with a 3-2 win over Detroit, clinch the American League pennant and finish eight games ahead of the Yankees, who won the AL flag the previous five seasons. The Tribe, who will set an American League record with 111 victories, will be swept in the Giants’ World Series.
Amazon .721: A History of the 1954 Cleveland Indians
1959 After Tiger manager Joe Gordon says he plans to leave the team at the end of the season, general manager Frank Lane fires him four days later. After reported negotiations with Leo Durocher to take over the helm do not pan out, the Detroit GM changes his mind and apologizes to his skipper, who decides to continue in his position.
1963 In the Polo Grounds’ final game, played in front of a paltry 1,752 patrons, Jim Hickman of the Mets hits the last home run in the 52-year history of the Coogan’s Bluff ballpark. The iconic stadium, which served as the home of the Giants (1911-1957), Yankees (1913-1922), and Mets (1962-63), first opened its doors on June 28, 1911.
1967 At Tiger Stadium, the Red Sox rally to move into a first-place tie with Detroit (85-66). The late-inning heroics begin with Carl Yastrzemski’s home run in the ninth frame, which ties the game at 5-to-5, and will be decided with a solo homer in the tenth hit by third baseman Dalton Jones, leading to an eventual 6-5 Boston victory.
1968 After being no-hit yesterday by Giants right-hander Gaylord Perry, the Cardinal hurler Ray Washburn returns the favor by no-hitting San Francisco, 2-0, making the hitless contests on successive days a first in major league history. The 30-year-old right-hander is the fourth Redbird pitcher to throw a no-no in franchise history and the first since Lon Warneke’s gem in 1941
1970 The Mets purchase Dean Chance from the Indians, but the 1964 Cy Young award winner will only compile a 0-1 record along with an ERA of 13.50 in his three games, all in relief, before being sent to Detroit, along with Bill Denehy, in an off-season trade with the Tigers. In exchange, New York obtains right-hander Jerry Robertson, who will never pitch again in a major league game.
1971 Clay Kirby goes the distance, limiting the Giants to one hit in the Padres’ 2-1 victory at Candlestick Park. Willie McCovey spoils the right-hander’s bid for a no-hitter when he leads off the bottom of the eighth inning with a wind-blown home run.
1975 In a 7-5 victory over Chicago at Shea Stadium, Mets slugger Dave Kingman hits his 35th homer to set a new franchise record for round-trippers in a season. Frank Thomas set the previous mark in 1962, the team’s first year.
1975 Rusty Staub becomes the first Mets player in the franchise’s 14-year history to drive in one hundred runs in a season. A fifth-inning two-run blast off Donnie Moore accounts for Le Grand Orange’s 100th RBI, contributing to the team’s 7-5 comeback victory over the Cubs at Shea Stadium.
1976 Indians player-manager Frank Robinson, in his final major league at-bat, strokes a pinch-hit single in a 4-3 loss to Baltimore at Cleveland Stadium. The 41-year-old future Hall of Famer ends his 21-year playing career with a batting average of .294 and 586 home runs, the fourth-best in baseball history at the time of his retirement.
1977 In front of a sellout crowd of 51,798 at Memorial Stadium on ‘Thanks Brooks Day,’ Red Sox rookie Ted Cox goes 4-for-4, tying the big league mark shared by Casey Stengel, Willie McCovey, Mack Jones, and Forest Jacobs for the most hits in a major league debut. The performance is also the start of a historic two-game hitting streak by the rookie DH, who will collect two hits in his first two at-bats in tomorrow’s contest to become the only big-leaguer to begin a career with six consecutive hits.
1980 In his 14th major league game, Gary Ward becomes the sixth Twins player to hit for the cycle in the team’s 9-8 loss against the Brewers at County Stadium. In 2004, the left fielder’s son Daryle will also collect a single, double, triple, and a home run in the same game, making the pair the first father-son combination to accomplish the rare feat.
1984 The Tigers, with a 3-0 victory over Milwaukee, clinch the American League East title to become only the fourth team in major league history to lead from start to finish of a season. The 1923 Giants, 1927 Yankees, and the 1955 Dodgers also led their circuits from wire to wire.
1987 In a slugfest in which the Mets will lose 10-9 to Pittsburgh, Darryl Strawberry gets the team off to a good start when he slams a three-run home run off Brian Fischer in the top of the first inning at Three Rivers Stadium. The New York right fielder’s 37th round-tripper establishes a new franchise record for homers, previously set by Dave Kingman on this date in 1975.
1992 At Three River Stadium, Barry Bonds connects his 30th home run of the season off Phillies’ right-hander Terry Mulholland in the Pirates’ 5-2 victory. The home run gives the Pirates outfielder his second 30/30 season, equaling a feat accomplished only by Bobby Bonds (his father), Willie Mays (his godfather), Howard Johnson, and Ron Gant.
1993 Mike Stanley, with the Yankees trailing by two runs with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, hits a pop fly to left field for the apparent third out to end the game; however, third-base umpire Tim Welke called time before the pitch when a fan jumped onto the Yankee Stadium field. Given a second chance, the Bronx Bomber catcher singles, followed by a Wade Boggs hit, a walk to Dion James, and a Don Mattingly single that drives in two runs to beat the Red Sox, 4-3.
1994 PBS airs Ken Burns Baseball, a nine-part documentary that explores the relationship between the sport and society by using archived pictures, film footage, and a soundtrack of interviews and the music of the times. The 1995 Primetime Emmy Awards winner for the Outstanding Informational Series enjoys an audience of 45 million viewers, making the 18.5-hour miniseries the most-watched program in Public Television history.
1996 In his final victory wearing a Red Sox uniform, Roger Clemens ties his record for punchouts in a game when he strikes out 20 batters in a nine-inning game, going the distance in the team’s 4-0 victory in Detroit. The ‘Rocket’ first achieved the feat a decade earlier against the Mariners.
1997 In a game in which the Braves become the first franchise to clinch six consecutive postseason berths, the team establishes a new major league record for grand slams. In the first inning of a 10-2 rout over New York, Ryan Klesko blasts the club’s twelfth four-run homer of the season, surpassing the mark set last year by both the Orioles and Mariners.
1999 Slammin’ Sammy Sosa becomes the first player in major league history to hit 60 homers in a season twice when he hits a sixth-inning solo shot off right-hander Jason Bere in the Cubs’ 7-4 loss to the Brewers at Wrigley Field. The 30-year-old Dominican outfielder hit 66 home runs in last season’s historic home run race with Mark McGwire.
2000 In between his first and sixth-inning home runs, Vladimir Guerrero’s older brother Wilton goes deep in the fourth frame of the Expos’ 11-4 rout of the Marlins at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium. The three home runs stroked by the siblings, who have now gone deep in the same game a record-setting four times, are all hit off Florida starter Jesus Sanchez.
2000 Indian hurler Bartolo Colon, pitching a one-hitter against the Yankees, nearly ends the longest streak in major league history of a team being held hitless by its opponents. The Bronx Bombers have not been denied a hit in a game since Hoyt Wilhelm accomplished the feat on September 9, 1958, a span of 6,637 contests.
2002 Not too fleet-of-foot, Greg Colbrunn hits an improbable triple in his last turn at-bat to complete the cycle. The Diamondbacks’ first baseman has five hits, including a pair of two-run homers, in the team’s 10-3 victory over the Padres at Qualcomm Stadium.
2002 Major League Baseball teams celebrate the first annual “Roberto Clemente Day.” Each home team’s recipient of the John Hancock’s Roberto Clemente Award will be recognized (with the balance given when the road team arrives home) with the award’s national recipient, chosen from among the 30 club honorees, will be announced during the World Series.
2004 For the first time in seventy years, Japanese professional baseball players go on strike, protesting the Nippon League’s threat to merge two teams. The work action, which will last for only two days, appears to work when team owners withdraw the merger proposal.
2005 The Rangers establish a new major league record for home runs hit at home when David Dellucci, Alfonso Soriano, and Rod Barajas all go yard as Texas beats the Mariners, 8-6. The power surge gives the team 150 homers at Ameriquest Field, one more than the Rockies’ output at Coors Field in 1996.
2006 Having accomplished the feat with the Indians and Phillies, White Sox DH Jim Thome becomes only the second big leaguer to hit 40 home runs with three different teams when he goes deep in an 8-2 loss to Detroit at U.S. Cellular Field. Alex Rodriguez also reached the milestone with the Mariners, Rangers, and Yankees
2006 In front of an enthusiastic Shea Stadium crowd of 46,729, the Mets capture the NL East title for the first time since 1988 by beating the Marlins, 4-0. The contest marks the team’s fifth attempt to clinch the division, but a road loss in Florida and being swept in Pittsburgh brought the champagne celebration home to the Big Apple.
2006 The Dodgers, who are last in the National League in homers, hit four consecutive home runs in an inning when Jeff Kent, J.D. Drew, Russell Martin, and Marlon Anderson all go deep in the bottom of the ninth to tie the Padres, 9-9. The improbable feat, accomplished only by the 1964 Twins, 1963 Indians, and the 1961 Braves, leads to Nomar Garciaparra’s walk-off two-run homer in the tenth and sole possession of first place when Los Angeles beat the Friars, 11-10.
2007 In the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs, Todd Helton homers on a two-strike pitch thrown by Takashi Saito, giving the Diamondbacks a 9-8 walk-off victory and a three-game sweep of the Dodgers at Coors Field. The unlikely outcome marks the third of 11 consecutive wins for the eventual National League champs.
2007 Greg Maddux breaks Cy Young’s major league record by getting his 13th win for the 20th consecutive season. The Padres veteran right-hander’s streak of not issuing a base on balls in 59.2 innings ends when Jason Bay walks on a full count in the third inning of a 5-3 victory over the Pirates at Petco Park.
2007 Mike Mussina becomes the first American League hurler to win 10+ games in 16 consecutive seasons when New York defeats the Orioles at the Yankee Stadium, 12-0. ‘Moose’ joins Hall of Famers Steve Carlton (18), Warren Spahn (17), Nolan Ryan (16), Don Sutton (17), Cy Young (19), and future inductee Greg Maddux (20) as one of only seven players in baseball history to have victories in the double-digits over a similar period of time
2010 At Citi Field, Luis Hernandez falls to the ground in obvious pain when he fouls a ball off his right foot, and after a lengthy discussion, dismisses the team trainer to resume his turn at-bat. The Mets’ second baseman hits a home run on the next pitch he sees but severely limps rounding the bases, reminiscent of Kirk Gibson, barely making it home due to the broken foot that will end his season.
2010 Troy Tulowitzki, with two round-trippers in the Rockies’ 12-2 rout of LA, ties a major-league record with 14 homers in a 15-game span. The Colorado slugging shortstop, who has four multi-homer games in the previous ten contests, joins Albert Belle (1995) and Barry Bonds (2001) as the third player to accomplish the feat.
2010 After finishing a victory short of the milestone twice during his distinguished career, CC Sabathia becomes a 20-game winner for the first time when the Yankees beat the Orioles 11-3. The left-hander, who leads both leagues in victories, is the fourth Bronx Bomber since 2000 to reach the plateau, adding his name to a list that includes Roger Clemens (2001), Andy Pettitte (2003), and Mike Mussina (2008).
2013 Reds’ rookie Billy Hamilton gets on base five times, going 3-for-4 with two walks, two runs scored, and an RBI. The Cincinnati speedy center fielder, who stole 155 bases in the minors last season, becomes the first major leaguer since 1920 to steal four bases in his first major league start.
2013 Yadier Molina strokes his 41st double of the season in the Cardinals’ 4-3 victory over Colorado, breaking the mark for two-baggers by a catcher. The St. Louis backstop, who will finish the year with 44 doubles, surpasses the record established in 1978 by Ted Simmons, who also played for the Redbirds.
2019 Bruce Bochy, finishing his 25th and final season at the helm, becomes the 11th big league manager to reach the 2,000-win plateau when the Giants rout the Red Sox, 11-3, at Fenway Park. The San Francisco skipper, joins Hall of Famers Connie Mack (3,731), John McGraw (2,763), Tony La Russa (2,728), Bobby Cox (2,504), Joe Torre (2,326), Sparky Anderson (2,194), Bucky Harris (2,158), Joe McCarthy (2,125), Walter Alston (2,040) and Leo Durocher (2,008) to reach the milestone.
September 18, 1938 – In maybe one of the most defensively dominated games in history, the Chicago Bears defeated the Green Bay Packers by a mere safety being the only scoring in the entire contest! Bears 2, Packers 0. According to reports the Green Bay squad seemed to outplay the Bears most of the game in a torrential downpour. Green Bay moved the ball decently but missed three field goals due in part to the sloppy conditions. The score happened on the second play of the fourth stanza when Bears guard Tom Jones jumped on an errant backwards pass by the Packer’s Arnie Herber for the 2 pointer. Green Bay had their chance with just a few ticks remaining on the clock but a 37 yard field goal attempt by Green Bay kicker Clarke Hinkle went left of the posts and the Bears ran out the remaining time for the “W”.
September 18, 1966 – Johnny Unitas surpasses Y.A. Tittle as the NFL’s career passing touchdown leader as Johnny U. tosses 4 scoring strikes in a Baltimore Colts win over the Minnesota Vikings by the score of 38-23. Tittle’s record was 212 touchdown passes. Unitas went on to throw a bunch more as he finished his great career with a total of 290 scoring throws! No wonder he was called the man with the golden arm!
September 18, 1983 – The New Orleans Saints post the franchise’s very first Overtime win in history as they overcome the Chicago Bears by a field goal in the extra stanza by the score of 34-31.
September 18, 1991 – The NCAA penalizes the University of Tennessee with two years of probation due to confirmed football recruiting violations.
HALL OF FAME BIRTHDAY FOR SEPTEMBER 18
September 18, 1910 – Ernie “Pug” Rentner was a former halfback and quarterback from Northwestern University. Pug Rentner was a dual threat. His powerful lower body and graceful control allowed him to slash through would-be tacklers. Pug’s strong arm and large hands allowed him to rifle passes of 60 yards or more through the air with uncanny accuracy. Offensive play was not his only talent though, as he was known to reel off long return yards on punts, kicks and interceptions. The 1931 Wildcat’s football team was special as they defeated every opponent they played. It looked like they might go undefeated, and had one game remaining, a charity contest with Purdue University. The Wildcats were heavily favored in the game, but the night prior to the contest several members of the Northwestern team were involved in an elevator accident. Though no one was injured, the team was shook, and Purdue capitalized on the less than stellar play by the Cats and gave Northwestern its only loss of the season. After the 1931 season Ernie was selected to the College Football All-American team. After college, Rentner played professional football for both the Boston Redskins and the Chicago Bears. The National Football Foundation selected him to enter the corridors of the College Football Hall of Fame in 1979.
September 18, 1926 – Skip Minisi was a former halfback that played for the University of Pennsylvania and for the Navy Midshipmen football programs in the mid 1940’s. Skip played for the Penn Quakers in 1944, and then while serving his country in World War II played the 1945 as a member of the Naval Academy football team. Minisi after his service returned to his studies at the University of Pennsylvania and competed for the Quakers once again in 1946 and 1947. Minisi’s impact was almost immediate in ’44 as he aided the Quakers in an improbable victory over the strong Duke Blue Devils by his fine play. That same season the underclassmen completed a 69 yard pick-six against Dartmouth College, and in the Michigan game tore off a 67 yard touchdown run. In 1945 as a Midshipmen player he helped derail his beloved Penn team by catching a last minute pass from Navy QB Tom Hamilton to give the Middies a 14-7 victory over the Quakers. That had to be bitter sweet for many in the stadium that day! But the very next season, in 1946, Minisi back in a Quaker uniform was instrumental in a victory over his former Navy teammates. Wow what a rollercoaster of events! After college Skip went into the practice of law in the Philadelphia area and in his spare time headed up the Eastern Association of Intercollegiate Football Officials.

September 18, 1955 – Billy Sims was a former running back from the University of Oklahoma. As a freshman reserve, Billy was a part of Oklahoma’s National Championship team of 1975. An early season injury derailed his participation in the 1976 season but because of so few minutes logged that year, the NCAA granted Sims an extra year of eligibility. Did Billy Simms ever make that extra time count. With hard work in rehab and recuperation Sims turned into a superstar college football running back. In 1978 he banged out 1762 yards on the ground and came back in 1979 with over 1500 yards rushed. He combined to find the endzone 42 times in his junior and senior seasons and earned the Associated Press and United Press International’s Player of the Year honors in 1978 and was awarded the Heisman Trophy. After the 1979 season he took second in Heisman voting to USC’s standout rusher Charles White. The Detroit Lions drafted Billy in 1979’s NFL Draft and he played in the Motor City for four seasons until he suffered a career ending knee injury. Billy Sims was invited into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1995.
