TOP NATIONAL HEADLINES

Hoskins, Phillies post 10,000th franchise win, top Reds

CINCINNATI (AP) Rhys Hoskins homered twice and drove in five runs as the Philadelphia Phillies posted the 10,000th win in franchise history, beating the Cincinnati Reds 11-4 Tuesday night.

Philadelphia became the last of the original eight National League franchises to reach the mark. At 10,000-11,163, the Phillies are the only team among them with a losing record.

The New York Yankees are the lone American League team to top the five-figure win total.

“It was a great offfensive night. Home runs come in bunches. It has been too long for me,” Hoskins said.

“Ten-thousandth win for the Phils. I’ll take a part of history. That’s a lot of wins. I know we have a lot of losses, too. I think I was a freshman in high school in 2007 when the Phils lost their 10,000th.”

Nick Castellanos homered and doubled twice and scored three times. He has homered five times in his last six games.

Darick Hall and Garrett Stubbs also homered for the Phillies, who hold the second spot in the wild-card race. Kyle Gibson (8-5) struck out 11 in six innings in his third straight solid outing.

Hoskins three-run shot drive in the fourth put the Phillies ahead 5-3. He added his 26th home run with a runner on in the eighth.

TJ Zeuch (0-2), born and raised in nearby Mason, Ohio, allowed 11 hits, three of them homers, and six runs in four-plus innings. Cincinnati has lost six of seven.

“The home runs got him,” manager David Bell said. “Other than that, on a positive side, he got a lot of groundballs. When he’s good and when he’s going to be good and keep getting better, he’s going to get a lot of groundballs.”

“All the guys we have here are here for a reason. They earned the opportunity,” he said. “We’re with them all the way. We’ll keep finding ways to get better.”

Gibson faced the Reds for the first time in his 10-year career. He gave up three runs on six hits with no walks.

“I feel pretty good. I had a couple of rough starts in the middle of the season,” said Gibson, who is from Greenfield, Indiana, less than a two-hour drive from Cincinnati.

“When the team puts up two runs you want to put up a zero. I’m my own worst critic. Everybody knows about Great American Ball Park. A lot have guys have benefitted from it. That’s what makes baseball great. Not every field plays the same. Every now and then you have to make better pitches. It was fun playing in front of familty and friends,” he said.

Hall and Castllanos hit back-to-back home runs in the third. It was the ninth for Hall and the 11th for Castellanos.

Jake Fraley and Jonathan India homered for the Reds.

Center fielder Brandon Marsh was injured trying to catch India’s homer and limped off the field. Nick Maton, listed as an infielder, replaced Marsh with the only other outfielder on the roster, Kyle Schwarber out with a strained right calf. He is expected to return on Friday.

“It was one of those things where you’re going for the ball. You just have to sacrifice the body a little bit,” Marsh said. “I came down a little weird. I was pretty scared at first but I’m feeling better. We’re going to let the team docs get a look and re-evaluate tomorrow. It was in the second row. I had a couple more feet to go.”

The Phillies sent Marsh for an MRI.

“The doctor here thought it was a bone bruise. We’re not bringing in another player. We’re going to be status quo. It doesn’t change anything for Schwarber unless he comes in tomorrow and tells me he’s not feeling anything.”

Maton could get time in the outfield.

Stubbs hit a three-run homer off Reds reliever Reiver Sanmartin in the ninth. It was challenged for fan interference but the call was confirmed.

Sanmartin could not finish the ninth. Infielder Alejo Lopez made his first career mound appearance and got the final two outs, getting Hoskins to hit into a force play. Lopez pitched one inning at Single-A Dayton.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Phillies manager Rob Thompson celebrated his 59th birthday, which matches his uniform number.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Phillies: OF Bryce Harper (broken thumb) will resume batting practice before a rehab assignment around Aug. 24. … RHP Corey Knebel’s MRI revealed a lat strain. The team is following up with more testing to make sure there is no other damage.

Reds: INF Donovan Solano was placed on the paternity list. … OF TJ Friedl was recalled from Triple-A Louisville. … OF Nick Senzel ran the bases before the game and is expected to be in the lineup on Thursday, if all goes well. … RHP Hunter Greene is on track to throw a bullpen on Sunday. Bell expects him to make a rehab start.

UP NEXT

Phillies LHP Ranger Suarez (8-5, 3.52) is scheduled to start on Wednesday against LHP Nick Lodolo (3-4, 4.72). It is Lodolo’s first start since the Field of Dreams Game.

Morton, Olson lead Braves to another easy win over Mets, 5-0

ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Braves never seem to get flustered.

Less than two weeks ago, the World Series champions endured a miserable series against the team they’ve been chasing in the NL East pretty much all summer.

They haven’t lost since.

Charlie Morton was dominant on the mound, Matt Olson and Robbie Grossman went deep, and the Braves made it eight in a row with a 5-0 blanking of the division-leading New York Mets on Tuesday night.

The last time these teams met in Queens, it was the Mets winning four of five. In Atlanta, the Braves have won the first two games of a four-game set by a combined margin of 18-1, closing the gap on New York to 3 1/2 games.

“You’re going to have series that don’t go your way,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “There’s nothing you can do about it. Just fight through it.”

Morton (6-5) surrendered three hits and a walk in 6 2/3 innings, posting his fourth double-figure strikeout game of the season with 12 Ks. His curveball was especially effective, which is why he threw it on nearly half of his 97 pitches.

“Holy cow, that was vintage Charlie right there,” Snitker said. “His breaking ball was something else.”

It was quite a contrast to the Mets’ starting situation.

For the second night in a row, their pitcher was lifted after two innings because of an injury. This time, it was 10-game winner Taijuan Walker making the early exit because of back spasms.

Walker said his back tightened up after he covered first to get the final out of the second. He’s not sure if he’ll be able to make his next start.

“I tried to bend over. When I tried to come back up, it just locked up on me,” Walker said. “I’ve never had anything like this before. The training staff is not too concerned about it. So I’ll get an MRI tomorrow and kind of see how I feel.”

The previous night, Carlos Carrasco went out with a strained left oblique. A 13-game winner, he was placed on the injured list before the game and is expected to miss up to a month.

R.J. Alvarez (0-1), who was called up from Triple-A Syracuse before the game, took over for Walker and surrendered a 413-foot homer to Grossman, the second batter he faced. The blast into the right-field seats was Grossman’s first homer for the Braves since being acquired from Detroit ahead of the trade deadline.

Alvarez served up an even deeper homer to Olson in the fourth, a two-run shot for his 25th of the season.

Right fielder Starling Marte didn’t even budge as the 443-foot drive sailed far over his head – a no-doubter as soon as it left the bat.

Olson added a run-scoring single in the seventh to finish with three RBIs on the night.

Alvarez worked 2 1/3 innings, giving up four hits, three runs and three walks. At least he managed to stay on the mound longer than either of New York’s last two starting pitchers.

Dylan Lee took over for Morton in the seventh and struck out Jeff McNeil with two runners aboard to end New York’s biggest threat.

LONG WAIT

Alvarez marked a couple of firsts.

The 31-year-old right-hander pitched in the majors for the first time since Sept. 29, 2015, when he worked two scoreless innings for Oakland against the Los Angeles Angels.

This was the first decision of Alvarez’s big league career. In 31 previous appearances, he posted a 7.39 ERA without earning a win or loss.

Since his stint with the A’s, Alvarez has pitched for seven minor league teams, mostly in Triple-A.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Mets: The injuries to Walker and Carrasco could be a huge blow to the New York rotation. The 35-year-old Carrasco is 13-5 with a 3.92 ERA, while Walker is 10-3 with a 3.36 ERA. … 3B Eduardo Escobar (left oblique) was scratched from the lineup before the game and appears headed for the injured list. The Mets are expected to call up one of their top prospects, Brett Baty, to fill in at third while Escobar is out.

Braves: RHP Mike Soroka, who has twice torn his right Achilles tendon, took a huge step in his two-year recovery. He pitched four scoreless innings for High-A Rome in his first official rehab appearance, surrendering only one hit with eight strikeouts and no walks. … C Chadwick Tromp went on the 10-day IL with a strained left quadriceps sustained last weekend in his Atlanta debut. With Travis d’Arnaud recovered from a lower leg injury, Tromp is likely headed back to Triple-A when he’s healthy.

UP NEXT

New York RHP Max Scherzer (8-2, 1.93 ERA) looks to beat the Braves for the third time this season. He has allowed one run on seven hits over 14 innings in his two previous starts against Atlanta, with 20 strikeouts and no walks. The Braves counter with RHP Jake Odorizzi (4-4, 3.80), who will be making his third start since coming over from Houston at the trade deadline. He is is 0-1 with a 4.15 ERA for the Braves, having surrendered 14 hits and four walks in 8 2/3 innings.

Arozarena’s early homer sends Rays past skidding Yankees 3-1

NEW YORK (AP) Randy Arozarena hit a three-run homer off Nestor Cortes in the first inning and the Tampa Bay staff made it stand up, leading the Rays over the skidding New York Yankees 3-1 Tuesday night.

Starter Jeffrey Springs (5-3) and four relievers combined on a four-hitter, and the crowd of 41,083 at Yankee Stadium booed their AL East leaders at times.

The Yankees have lost 11 of 13 and are 8-17 since reaching the All-Star break at 64-28.

“Yeah, we’re all frustrated but you can’t let the frustration get in your way of preparing and go every night,” New York manager Aaron Boone said. “We got a few guys that are in a rut. We got to prepare and get ready and fight our way of it. It’s part of it and it’s no fun when you’re going through it, but that’s where we are right now.”

Tampa Bay got only four hits while winning its fourth straight and closing within nine games of the Yankees – New York’s smallest margin since also being nine ahead on June 15. The Rays trailed by 15 1/2 games after getting swept at Cincinnati July 8-10.

“Wins in this ballpark against this team, that can elevate you a little bit and make you feel that much better,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said.

New York lost its fifth straight series and was held to three runs or less for the seventh straight game.

“It’s better to have this happen now in August than the first week of playoffs or near the end of the year when you’re getting into the playoffs,” New York slugger Aaron Judge said.

New York avoided being blanked in three straight games for the first time since 2016 when Andrew Benintendi tripled in the fifth and scored on a fielding error by third baseman Yandy Diaz on a grounder by Miguel Andujar.

Some fans booed when Andujar struck out to end the seventh with Josh Donaldson on third, and there were more when Jose Trevino struck out to end the game.

Diaz and Issac Paredes started the game with singles. One out later, Arozarena gave the Rays a 3-0 lead by lifting a 1-1 fastball into the left field seats for his 16th homer. It was Arozarena’s fourth homer in six games after the right fielder went homerless in 16 straight games.

“I was looking for a pitch to connect on,” Arozarena said through a translator. “I was hoping to hit a home run, that’s kind of what I was looking for but I’m mostly just happy we got the victory.”

Cortes (9-4) allowed three runs and four hits in seven innings. He struck out three, walked none and retired 19 of his final 21 hitters.

“I think we’re going to turn it around soon,” Cortes said. “I don’t know when, but this team is capable of doing big things and obviously we showed it the first half.”

Springs got 10 outs on the ground and held New York to one run and two hits in five innings.

“It’s good to see,” Cash said. “Our pitching has been outstanding the last two games here.”

Pete Fairbanks pitched a perfect sixth, Brooks Raley got the first two outs of the seventh after Donaldson singled and Shawn Armstrong got the next three outs.

Jason Adam needed four pitches to retire Judge with a runner on to end the eighth.

Adam also fanned two in a perfect ninth for his seventh save.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Moncada hits winning single in 8th again, ChiSox beat Astros

CHICAGO (AP) Yoan Moncada came through with the go-ahead single in the eighth inning for the second straight game, and the Chicago White Sox rallied to beat the Houston Astros 4-3 on Tuesday night.

While the showdown between AL Cy Young Award contenders Dylan Cease and Justin Verlander didn’t live up to its billing, the White Sox came away with their fifth straight win. They moved within a game of AL Central leader Cleveland.

Moncada hit a tiebreaking two-run single in Monday’s 4-2 win. This time, Chicago had a runner on third when he singled to center against Hector Neris (4-4) to make it 4-3.

Cease lasted five innings, allowing three runs and six hits. The 26-year-old right-hander had gone a major league-record 14 consecutive starts without allowing more than one earned run.

Verlander, tops in the majors in wins and ERA coming in, went seven innings. The two-time Cy Young Award winner gave up three runs and eight hits.

Pinch-hitter Gavin Sheets smacked a two-run double off Verlander with one out in the seventh that made it 3-3.

Jose Abreu had three hits for Chicago. Jimmy Lambert (1-2) worked around a single in the eighth by Mauricio Dubon, and Liam Hendriks secured his 27th save in 30 chances with a seven-pitch ninth.

Houston’s Alex Bregman and Kyle Tucker hit back-to-back doubles in the third to give Houston a 2-1 lead after Jose Altuve got picked off second.

Altuve led off the fifth with a drive to left against Cease to make it 3-1.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Astros: LF Aledmys Diaz exited the game because of discomfort in his left groin. Diaz caught Yasmani Grandal’s line drive to end the third inning. He was replaced by Chas McCormick in the bottom of the fourth. … SS Jeremy Pena was back in the lineup after being scratched from Monday’s game because of neck tightness.

White Sox: OF Luis Robert (sprained left wrist) won’t need to go on the injured list and could return as soon as Wednesday, manager Tony La Russa said. Robert was out of the lineup for the fourth consecutive game.

UP NEXT

The four-game series continues with Astros LHP Framber Valdez (11-4, 2.73 ERA) opposing White Sox RHP Michael Kopech (4-8, 3.18). Valdez tossed seven scoreless innings as Houston beat Texas 7-3 on Thursday. Kopech threw six no-hit innings and struck out a career-high 11 in Chicago’s 2-0 win over Detroit on Friday.

Caratini’s 2-run single in 11th rallies Brewers over Dodgers

MILWAUKEE (AP) Victor Caratini hit a two-run single off Dodgers closer Craig Kimbrel in the 11th inning, rallying the Milwaukee Brewers over Los Angeles 5-4 on Tuesday night.

“I just tried to make contact,” said Caratini, who was mobbed by his teammates after the hit. “Whether it’s a flyball or putting the ball in play, try to get at least one run in and thankfully it worked.”

A sensational catch by Dodgers center fielder Chris Taylor in the 10th kept the game tied. Taylor homered in the seventh to make it 3-all.

Batting with the bases loaded and one out against Kimbrel (3-5), Caratini blooped a hit to right field that scored automatic runner Andrew McCutchen and Hunter Renfroe, who had reached on a bunt single.

Renfroe crossed the plate just a few steps behind McCutchen, who had held up to see if the ball would be caught by right fielder Mookie Betts.

“Probably gambling a little bit,” Renfroe said. “I got a good read on it. I knew he wasn’t playing back so he wasn’t going to catch it.”

The Brewers won despite getting just five hits off seven pitchers. The teams have split the first two games of a four-game set.

The Dodgers have lost two of three since a 12-game winning streak.

“When I go out there on the mound, I feel like I’m going to my job every time,” said Kimbrel, who blew his fourth save. “I have the confidence. I’m throwing my pitches but it’s just not working out. It’s going to change. It has to.”

Justin Turner’s run-scoring single off Milwaukee reliever Brent Suter (4-4) gave the Dodgers a 4-3 lead in the top of the 11th.

In a back-and-forth matchup, the Brewers nearly won in the 10th. With two outs and two on, McCutchen hit a liner deep into the left-center field gap that Taylor caught with a flying, backhanded grab. Reliever Alex Vesia stood behind the mound and yelled.

“It’s just one of those situations where you know that if you don’t catch it the game’s over,” Taylor said. “I barely caught it. I didn’t even know I caught it until I looked in my glove.”

The Brewers jumped on Dodgers rookie starter Ryan Pepiot in the first. Christian Yelich drew a leadoff walk and Willy Adames followed with his 23rd homer.

Milwaukee starter Brandon Woodruff pitched four shutout innings before Joey Gallo tagged him for a leadoff homer in the fifth. It was the third homer for Gallo, who was inserted in the lineup in place of struggling Cody Bellinger, since coming to the Dodgers earlier this month in a trade deadline deal with the New York Yankees.

Betts followed two batters later with another solo homer to make it 2-all.

Yelich hit a solo homer in the fifth, ending his 0-for-26 slump. It was his first home run since July 2 at Pittsburgh and first at home since May 5.

“It felt good to have something positive for once,” Yelich said. “It’s been awhile since I’ve done that.”

Taylor’s solo home run in the seventh off Matt Bush pulled the Dodgers even again.

Woodruff gave up five hits and two runs in five innings. He walked two and struck out eight.

“They’re a really, really good baseball team,” Woodruff said. “That was a heck of a win. We needed that. Hopefully we can carry that momentum into tomorrow and the rest of this series.”

Pepiot, making his sixth start of the season, surrendered three hits and three runs in 4 2/3 innings. He walked five and had six strikeouts.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Dodgers: LHP Clayton Kershaw didn’t make the trip to Milwaukee but has been throwing at his home in Texas, manager Dave Roberts said. Kershaw has been out since earlier this month with back soreness. . LHP Andrew Heaney, who sustained a left arm contusion after being struck by a comebacker that forced him to leave his last start in Kansas City on Saturday, threw a bullpen session on Tuesday and will make his next scheduled start on Thursday in the series finale, Roberts said.

Brewers: RHP Adrian Houser (right elbow) gave up five hits and three earned runs in a 28-pitch rehab outing with Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday. . C Omar Narvaez (left quadriceps), who began a rehab assignment with Nashville, went 2-for-4 as the DH. He is expected to be behind the plate for Nashville on Wednesday.

CLOSE CALLS

The Brewers recorded their seventh walk-off victory of the season and improved to 7-5 in extra innings. Milwaukee moved to 23-15 in one-run games.

CENTRAL DOMINANCE

Despite the loss, the Dodgers have been dominant against the NL Central, going 7-0 vs. Chicago, 7-0 vs. Cincinnati, 2-1 vs. St. Louis, 1-1 against Milwaukee and 1-5 vs. last-place Pittsburgh.

Mullins, Rutschman power surging Orioles past Blue Jays 4-2

TORONTO (AP) Cedric Mullins and Adley Rutschman hit back-to-back home runs, Ramon Urias drove in the tiebreaking run in the sixth inning and the Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2 Tuesday night, giving surging Baltimore its 10th win in 14 August games.

Dean Kremer (5-4) matched his career high by pitching seven innings, winning for the second time in three starts.

“That was the best pitching performance for him by far,” Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said. “That’s huge for us and huge for him. That shows you the kind of pitcher he can be.”

Kremer allowed two runs and seven hits. He walked one and struck out six.

Ryan McKenna had an RBI hit as the Orioles (61-55) closed to within one-half game of Toronto (61-54). The Blue Jays hold the third and final spot in the AL wild-card standings, trailing Tampa Bay and Seattle.

“We’re having fun right now,” Kremer said. “Standings or not, we’re having a blast. Every win is another win.”

Dillon Tate worked the eighth and Felix Bautista struck out a pair in the ninth for his seventh save in eight chances.

The slumping Blue Jays lost for the ninth time in 12 games. Toronto is 4-9 in August.

“The key is we are not getting it done with runners in scoring position,” Blue Jays slugger Vladimir Guerrero Jr. said through a translator.

Toronto went 0 for 2 with runners in scoring position Tuesday and left four runners stranded.

Baltimore is 6-2 against the Blue Jays this season. The Orioles lost 14 of 19 meetings with Toronto in 2021.

Blue Jays right-hander Alek Manoah (12-6) came in unbeaten in five career starts against the Orioles but couldn’t extend that streak, allowing four runs and four hits in 5 2/3 innings. Manoah struck out seven and walked four, matching a season-worst for the fourth time.

“We’re still in a playoff spot and we know we’re a playoff team,” Manoah said. “We’re struggling a bit right now but we’ll get it rolling again.”

Toronto’s only runs off Kremer came in the first when George Springer led off with a single and Guerrero homered, his 25th and second in two games.

Guerrero’s homer came off his bat at 111.3 miles per hour.

Toronto loaded the bases with one out in the third but Kremer got Matt Chapman to ground into a double play.

“One of the biggest plays in the game,” Hyde said.

Mullins and Rutschman tied it with back-to-back home runs in the fifth, going deep three pitches apart. Mullins homered for the 11th time, while Rutschman’s was his seventh.

“That was a huge lift for our team,” Hyde said.

It was the 10th time this season the Orioles hit consecutive home runs.

The Orioles took the lead and chased Manoah with a two-run sixth. Terrin Vavra walked, advanced on Rougned Odor’s groundout and scored on a two-out single by Urias.

“Today we were able to basically shrink the zone a little bit and capitalize on mistakes,” Mullins said of Baltimore’s approach against Manoah.

Manoah left after walking Jorge Mateo, who was nearly picked off first by reliever Anthony Bass, with the call standing after video review. McKenna made the most of the extra opportunity with an RBI single.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Blue Jays: RHP Julian Merryweather (strained right abdominal) struck out a pair in two scoreless innings in a rehab outing for Triple-A Buffalo Tuesday. Merryweather has not allowed a hit in five innings over four rehab appearances at three minor league levels.

GO LOW

Guerrero’s homer had a launch angle of 15 degrees, matching New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton for the lowest launch angle on a fence-clearing home run this season. Stanton did it against Boston on April 8.

WHO’S ON FIRST?

Rutschman took grounders at first base before the game. Hyde said he’d consider using Rutschman at first base in an emergency but would prefer not to have to.

UP NEXT

RHP Austin Voth (3-1, 5.34) starts for Baltimore in Wednesday afternoon’s series finale. Toronto will activate RHP Ross Stripling (5.3, 3.16) off the injured list to face the Orioles. Stripling hasn’t pitched since July 30 because of a sore right hip.

Crawford’s HR with 2 outs in 9th lifts Giants past D-backs

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) In a three-day span, Thairo Estrada hit a game-ending two-run homer against the Pirates and a triple that sparked another ninth-inning rally.

Brandon Crawford connected for a two-run walkoff homer against Ian Kennedy moments after Estrada’s two-out triple, and the San Francisco Giants came back to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 on Tuesday night for their fifth straight win and eighth in 10 games.

“Of course there was an opportunity. Until the last out, there’s always a chance,” Estrada said. “… The last two times up I’ve been able to deliver.”

The Giants came back against Arizona’s bullpen after D-backs ace Merrill Kelly outdueled Jakob Junis.

Christian Walker homered leading off the fourth inning for the game’s lone run until the final swing by Crawford for his sixth homer.

“With how the season’s gone, with the ups and downs, it’s nice to have some fun, exciting wins,” said Crawford, whose kids were jumping up and down in their pajamas at home in a video shared by his wife, Jalynne.

Kelly struck out seven with two walks and four hits over seven innings to improve to 6-3 over 14 career starts against the Giants, going 3-0 over his last four outings in the rivalry. The Arizona ace also improved to 8-1 on the road – he’s 5-0 over his last six outings away from Chase Field – and 9-4 in 16 appearances after a D-backs defeat.

Before the last-inning drama, the Giants had their best chance in the seventh when Evan Longoria led off with a double and advanced on Estrada’s sacrifice bunt. Crawford walked, then Joey Bart flied out.

Joe Mantiply pitched the eighth for Arizona, which is now 2-19 in San Francisco’s waterfront ballpark since Giants manager Gabe Kapler took over ahead of the virus-shortened 2020 season. Wilmer Flores hit a two-out double, but the Giants again couldn’t convert.

Kennedy (4-6) bent over in frustration as Crawford’s ball sailed out. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo argued that Estrada had taken strike three because plate umpire Cory Blaser moved backward.

“It’s not over until it’s over. Everybody knows what happened. It’s frustrating,” Lovullo said. “We’re still working through it right now to be honest with you. But we’ll figure out what happened, digest it and move on.”

Junis struck out seven – one off his season high – and Walker’s homer was his only run surrendered and one of four hits he allowed over seven impressive innings. The right-hander was coming off his shortest start of the year last Wednesday at San Diego in a 13-7 loss. He still hasn’t won in five starts since beating the Dodgers on June 10.

Alex Young relieved and pitched a 1-2-3 eighth then John Brebbia (6-1) struck out two in the ninth for the win.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Diamondbacks: 2B Ketel Marte was held out of the starting lineup for a second straight game with tightness in his left hamstring. “He’s still day to day, and when he’s not day to day he’s probably going to be our designated hitter,” Lovullo said. … SS Nick Ahmed, on the 60-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation, continues to rehab the injury and will be in the treatment phase until he’s no longer experiencing symptoms, Lovullo said. “He’s not even close to baseball activities,” Lovullo said.

Giants: Bart, who had a career-best three hits Monday after dealing with a sprained right ankle, extended his hitting streak to eight games and has been finding a groove since recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on July 6. “Probably more important than anything else, he looked refreshed, like there had been sort of a weight lifted,” Kapler said, “like he got some rest.”

UP NEXT

RHP Zach Davies (2-4, 4.11 ERA) pitches the third game of the four-game set Wednesday night seeking his first win since May 13 against the Cubs. The Giants counter with LHP Carlos Rodon, who tries to win his fourth straight start.

Mariners break up perfect game bid in 6th, beat Angels 8-2

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Adam Frazier broke up Jose Suarez’s bid for a perfect game in the sixth and added a two-run triple in the ninth, leading the Seattle Mariners to an 8-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night.

Ty France had a tying two-run single in a three-run sixth for the Mariners, who have won five of seven after a pair of eventful victories at the Big A.

Suarez (4-5), the Angels’ 24-year-old Venezuelan left-hander, retired Seattle’s first 16 batters and led 2-0 before Frazier’s one-out infield single in the sixth. The next three Mariners also singled, abruptly ending Suarez’s night.

“He’s been pitching really well, but we were able to get a couple of good swings and then get some momentum,” France said.

France, who grew up in the Los Angeles suburbs north of Angel Stadium, chased Suarez before Jesse Winker added a tiebreaking sacrifice fly off Jimmy Herget.

Frazier tripled into the right field corner and then scored on Sam Haggerty’s infield hit in the ninth off Jesse Chavez. Rookie Julio Rodriguez added a two-run homer, his 19th of the season, in the Angels’ second straight catastrophic ninth inning against the M’s.

“At some point, our offense had to break through,” said Robbie Ray, who pitched six innings of six-hit ball for Seattle. “Lately, it’s been later in the game. … We’re not really looking at the standings, not looking forward to playoffs or whatever. Our focus needs to be on winning the next game.”

Seattle scored four runs in the ninth Monday night to win 6-2.

Luis Rengifo homered and drove in two runs for the Angels, who have lost two straight after winning five of their previous six. Shohei Ohtani had a triple and two singles in his 28th multi-hit game of the season.

Suarez also lost his three-start winning streak and his streak of 23 consecutive innings over four starts without allowing an earned run. He began the season in the Angels’ rotation after pitching superbly down the stretch in 2021, but he was demoted to the minors this spring before returning with a new changeup and a serious upgrade in performance.

“Our at-bats once we got past the fifth inning, I thought, were much better,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said. “Credit to Suarez. We have not done much against him.”

Ray (9-8) struck out 10, and his teammates’ late rally put him in position for his first win since July 15 and his third victory over Los Angeles this season.

Ray dominated in his first two starts against the Angels this season with just two earned runs allowed in 14 innings. He wasn’t quite as sharp early in Anaheim, but settled in to retire 10 of his final 12 batters.

Rengifo extended his impressive August with a solo homer in the first and an RBI single in the third.

Suarez struck out five in his first five innings and didn’t even need an exceptional defensive play to stay perfect. Frazier broke through with a grounder into the hole at shortstop, where David Fletcher fielded it on the run with no chance to make the throw.

Wisdom’s double in 11th propels Cubs to 7-5 win over Nats

WASHINGTON (AP) Patrick Wisdom drove in the go-ahead run in the 11th inning, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Washington Nationals 7-5 on Tuesday night after losing a 4-0 lead.

Wisdom led off the inning with a double down the left-field line against Victor Arano (1-1), scoring automatic runner Willson Contreras. Wisdom then went to third on a wild pitch and scored on Seiya Suzuki’s single.

“Sometimes you can get deflated on the back end of having a four-run lead and the team clawing back, and the guys just kept having good at-bats and putting pressure on the defense,” Cubs manager David Ross said. “We made some mistakes in there and still ended up coming out with a win.”

Brandon Hughes (2-1) pitched the 10th for Chicago and Mark Leiter Jr. worked the 11th for his first save.

Contreras gave the Cubs a 5-4 lead with a sacrifice fly in the 10th, but Nationals prospect CJ Abrams, called up Monday from Triple-A Rochester, singled home Alex Call in the bottom half for his first hit with Washington. Abrams was acquired in the trade that sent Juan Soto and Josh Bell to San Diego.

Contreras got into an argument with a fan as he returned to the bench after his sacrifice fly. The fan was escorted out by Nationals Park security.

“What he said, he got under my skin even though he was a Latino guy. We’re speaking the same language so I know what he means,” said Contreras, who declined to reveal what was said. “Somebody try to mess up my family they’re gonna (have to go) over me first. But whatever he said, it wasn’t healthy. It wasn’t right.”

Luke Voit and Lane Thomas clubbed solo homers off Chicago’s Rowan Wick in the eighth inning to tie it at 4.

Franmil Reyes homered and singled for the Cubs.

Cubs starter Justin Steele allowed one unearned run on five hits in six innings. He walked two and struck out five.

Patrick Corbin allowed four runs on six hits over six innings for Washington. He had been skipped the last time through the rotation after pitching to a 25.41 ERA over three starts, two of which saw him chased in the first inning.

“Pretty good,” Corbin said of his outing. “I felt good out there. If anything I think just getting a little time away from it. I got to throw a couple of bullpens. Maybe just a couple of mistakes but overall I made some quality pitches.”

Cesar Hernandez had two doubles and a single, and rookie outfielder Joey Meneses extended his hitting streak to 10 games for the Nationals.

Ildemaro Vargas’s RBI single in the seventh pulled Washington within 4-2.

The Cubs got two in the fourth on RBI hits by Nico Hoerner and P.J. Higgins to make it 3-0. Reyes’ homer made it 4-0 in the sixth.

REYES RIGHT AT HOME

Reyes has hit safely in each of his six games since being claimed off waivers. Over that span he’s hitting .346 (9 for 26) with two homers, five RBIs, three runs scored and a 1.080 OPS.

O’Neill’s game-ending HBP lifts Cards over Rockies 5-4

ST. LOUIS (AP) Paul Goldschmidt and Tommy Edman homered, and St. Louis scored the winning run when Tyler O’Neill was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning, leading the Cardinals to a 5-4 win over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.

Andrew Knizner and Lars Nootbaar drew walks off Dinelson Lamet (1-2) in the ninth, and Dylan Carlson reached on a bunt single to load the bases before O’Neill was plunked.

“They took good at-bats, worked full counts, and were able to get on there,” O’Neill said. “You could tell he was a little wild out there, so I just wanted to be a little selective, see a good pitch to hit, and ended up getting hit.”

Rockies manager Bud Black said Lamet couldn’t seem to find his release point.

“Usually when a pitcher isn’t able to find the strike zone, it’s usually release point and a little something in his delivery,” Black said.

Jose Quintana pitched no-hit ball with two walks for five innings before allowing two runs on four consecutive hits to lead off the sixth, ending his night.

“It’s a little tough when you get five straight innings quickly, and you face four hitters and now can’t get outs,” Quintana said. “The game was there, so I’m happy with how I threw the ball.”

Ryan Helsley (7-1) pitched a scoreless top of the ninth to lower his ERA to 0.91 in 49 2/3 innings this season.

Kyle Freeland allowed three runs on seven hits and struck out four batters in six innings to drop the Rockies to 13-42 since Busch Stadium III opened in 2006.

“I went back and looked at video of my start at home at Coors Field against them, and I was at the top of the zone with a lot of my arsenal,” Freeland said. “The key for me today was to get back to the bottom of the zone, execute in the bottom of the zone, and it paid off somewhat.”

Goldschmidt hit a sacrifice fly to left field off Lucas Gilbreath in the seventh inning to the the game at 4.

Charlie Blackmon hit a two-run double to right-center field off Packy Naughton in the seventh inning, driving in Wynton Bernard and Connor Joe to put Colorado up 4-3.

Bernard, a 31-year-old rookie, singled up the middle to break up Quintana’s no-hit bid and scored two batters later on a Blackmon single.

Goldschmidt’s two-run home run to left field off Freeland in the fifth inning was the 29th of the season and 100th as a member of the Cardinals.

“I had no idea how many homers I had,” Goldschmidt said. “It’s kind of crazy so I hadn’t thought about it at all, but it seems fast. It wasn’t like a goal or anything like that. I was just trying to do my job.”

Edman hit his eighth home run of the season off Freeland in the fourth inning to give St. Louis a 1-0 lead. It was his first home run since going deep on June 14 in the second game of a doubleheader against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

DOUBLE THE FUN

Blackmon’s seventh inning double gave Colorado at least one double in 36 straight games. It is the longest streak in the majors this season and the longest since the Oakland Athletics doubled in 36 straight games in 2019.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Cardinals: 1B/OF Juan Yepez (right forearm strain) was held out of the lineup for Triple-A Memphis on Sunday due to illness. Yepez worked out pregame and will work with the club Wednesday before the team makes a decision on activating him or having him continue his rehab assignment.

UP NEXT:

Cardinals LHP Jordan Montgomery (5-3, 3.37 ERA) will make his first career appearance against Colorado on Wednesday night and is 2-0, having tossed 11 scoreless innings in two starts since being acquired from the New York Yankees on Aug. 2. The Rockies counter with RHP German Marquez (6-9, 5.08 ERA), who is 2-1 with a 2.58 ERA in seven career starts against St. Louis.

Braves sign rookie OF Harris to $72 million, 8-year contract

ATLANTA (AP) Rookie outfielder Michael Harris II, whose early-season promotion has bolstered the Atlanta Braves’ hopes for another championship run, has signed a $72 million, eight-year contract to remain with his hometown team.

The Braves announced the deal on Tuesday night.

The deal runs through the 2030 season and includes a $15 million team option for 2031 and a $20 million team option for 2032. Each option year is accompanied by a $5 million buyout. If both option years are activated, the total value of the contract would be $102 million over 10 years.

Harris, 21, has emerged as one of the National League’s top rookies as an offensive and defensive standout for the defending World Series champion Braves.

Harris is hitting .287 with 12 home runs, 13 stolen bases and 39 RBIs in 71 games after making his major league debut on May 28. He also has provided strong defense in center field.

Harris is the youngest player in the majors and leads all qualified rookies with an .825 OPS.

Harris joins third baseman Austin Riley, outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr., first baseman Matt Olson and second baseman Ozzie Albies as Atlanta players whose long-term contracts include team options that carry through the 2027 season or longer.

Harris will earn $5 million in 2023 and 2024, $8 million in 2025 and 2026, $9 million in 2027, $10 million in 2028 and 2029 and $12 million in 2030.

Harris was born in DeKalb County, Georgia, and was drafted by the Braves out of Stockbridge High School, south of Atlanta.

He was named National League Rookie of the Month for June.

AP source: Jets’ Wilson has no additional damage to knee

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Zach Wilson and the New York Jets received some good news after a few days of worrying about the quarterback’s right knee.

Wilson had arthroscopic surgery Tuesday to repair a torn meniscus and remains on track to return in a few weeks, a person with knowledge told The Associated Press.

Wilson, who also has a bone bruise in the knee, flew to Los Angeles to have the procedure performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Wilson’s meniscus was trimmed and ElAttrache found no additional damage than initially believed, said the person who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team didn’t announce results of the surgery.

That timeline means the Jets could still potentially have their starting quarterback for Week 1. However, the team will likely be cautious with Wilson before getting him back on the field.

ESPN first reported that no additional damage was found during Wilson’s surgery.

Wilson was initially expected to miss two to four weeks with a bone bruise and meniscus tear in his right knee, and the team was optimistic that would remain the case.

But the timeline for how long the second-year quarterback could be sidelined would be determined by the surgery on the meniscus and whether it needed to be trimmed or fully repaired.

It was initially feared that Wilson suffered a serious – and potentially season-ending – knee injury during the second offensive series of New York’s 24-21 preseason-opening win at Philadelphia last Friday night. Tests after the game indicated the ACL in the knee was intact, and an MRI on Saturday morning revealed the bone bruise and torn meniscus.

Joe Flacco could still start the regular-season opener against Baltimore – his former team – on Sept. 11 if Wilson isn’t ready.

Coach Robert Saleh acknowledged Sunday that Wilson being sidelined a few weeks is a setback in his development, particularly since the Jets have joint practices coming up with the Falcons and Giants.

“It’s a setback in that he’s missing an unbelievable opportunity to get these reps in and to play other defenses, especially the Giants who have such an elaborate pressure package system, a pressure system,” Saleh said. “But he’s got to stay dialed in just like he was last year when he was hurt, learn from his teammates and try to be involved as much mentally as he can possibly be.

“The timing of it all is terrible and it sucks, but I think Zach can still have an opportunity to grow from it if he attacks it mentally.”

QB Stafford shows no throwing limitations in Rams scrimmage

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) Matthew Stafford showed no throwing limitations while fully participating in a scrimmage with the Los Angeles Rams on Tuesday, further underlining the Super Bowl-winning quarterback’s declaration that his injured elbow will be fine.

Stafford made all sorts of throws during the lengthy scrimmage at the Rams’ training complex, and coach Sean McVay was pleased by the latest step in the veteran quarterback’s increased workload.

“I thought he had great energy, great command all day,” McVay said. “I thought he threw the ball incredibly accurately in all parts of the field, really activated all parts of our pass game.”

The 34-year-old Stafford played through elbow pain last season while leading the Rams to the title in his first season with the team. He had an unspecified injection in his elbow during an offseason in which he didn’t throw at all in team workouts.

Stafford began throwing to receivers in drills early in training camp, and he has steadily ramped up his workload with a particular focus on building chemistry with new receiver Allen Robinson. Tuesday’s practice was the second straight at full participation for Stafford, who says his elbow is more of an irritation than an impediment.

McVay doesn’t play his most important players in the preseason, so Stafford won’t show off his arm in competition until the Rams’ opener Sept. 8 against Buffalo. The Rams’ preseason continues Friday night against Houston at SoFi Stadium.

The Rams are thin in the backfield with their top two running backs – Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson – missing this week’s practices with what McVay called “soft-tissue injuries.” Youngsters Jake Funk and Kyren Williams got ample first-team snaps in the Rams’ scrimmage.

Los Angeles released five players to get under the 85-man roster limit, dropping punter Cameron Dicker, offensive tackle Adrian Ealy, quarterback Luis Perez, tight end Jamal Pettigrew and defensive back Caesar Dancy-Williams.

The cuts mean former New York Giants punter Riley Dixon has won the competition to replace Johnny Hekker, the Rams’ four-time All-Pro. Hekker, the Rams’ punter since 2012, signed with Carolina last March after being released by the Rams.

Los Angeles also claimed defensive end T.J. Carter off waivers from New Orleans, waiving receiver Warren Jackson with an injury designation to make room.

AP sources: Tiger meets with top players against LIV Golf

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) The PGA Tour is in Delaware for the first time and the buzz still surrounded Tiger Woods, even if he didn’t have clubs and wasn’t even at the golf course.

Woods flew to Wilmington on Tuesday for a private meeting of top players to discuss the threat of Saudi-funded LIV Golf, according to two people aware of the plans at the BMW Championship.

They spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the privacy of the meeting. One person invited to the meeting said it was to get on the same page against LIV Golf, along with taking more ownership in the direction of the PGA Tour.

That meeting led to a previously scheduled Player Advisory Council meeting being moved back an hour or so to later Tuesday afternoon. Woods flew up from his home in Florida with Rickie Fowler, who didn’t qualify for the second FedEx Cup playoff event.

The meeting was held away from Wilmington Country Club at a hotel, according to another person aware of the details. PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan was not invited.

“There is a player meeting, but that’s all I can tell you about that,” Jon Rahm said.

Monahan met with the players informally last week following a hearing in which a federal judge denied a request by three LIV Golf players seeking to play in the PGA Tour postseason.

He also met with the players a week after the U.S. Open to detail plans for big increases in prize money on the PGA Tour, qualifying changes and a new schedule that will return to a January start to the season in 2024.

“I’m not sure what, if anything, will change, what will be the result of it,” Patrick Cantlay said. “I think it’s good that a lot of the players are getting together to discuss the situation out here, especially given the current circumstances.”

Woods has been a strong opponent of LIV Golf. The rival league’s leader, Greg Norman, confirmed in an interview with Fox News last month that Woods was offered in the range of $700 to $800 million to take part. Norman said that was before he was hired to run LIV Golf.

Norman and Woods have never been close, going back to when Woods arrived on the PGA Tour and instantly became the biggest star golf had seen in generations.

Woods was particularly forceful at the British Open last month when he said of Norman not being invited to festivities around the 150th Open, “Greg has done some things that I don’t think is in the best interest of our game.”

He said he disagreed with players getting enormous signing bonuses to defect to LIV Golf, saying they have turned their backs on the tour that made them famous.

The PGA Tour has reacted to the depth of Saudi funding with a $50 million bonus pool called the Player Impact Program that pays 10 leading players based on how much attention they get. Some players, such as Cantlay, the defending FedEx Cup champion, don’t like the program.

Also in the works is a series of overseas tournaments at the end of the year that will reward the top performers. The tour hasn’t announced set details or a sponsor.

LIV Golf has played three events offering $25 million apiece in prize money to a group of players that includes Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau. It resumes its eight-tournament schedule after the FedEx Cup ends next week.

Serena Williams loses to Raducanu; US Open next

MASON, Ohio (AP) The second stop on Serena Williams’ farewell tour was a short one.

The 40-year-old Williams fell to 0-2 in matches since announcing “the countdown has begun” on her career, losing 6-4, 6-0 to U.S. Open champion Emma Raducanu in the Western & Southern Open on Tuesday night.

Williams said last week in a Vogue magazine essay and an Instagram post that her career was winding down, although she did not explicitly say the U.S. Open, which begins Aug. 29 in New York, would be her last tournament.

The Cincinnati event was the second U.S. Open tuneup for Williams, and the next time she takes the court will be at Flushing Meadows. She lost to Belinda Bencic in straight sets last week in Toronto. A day before the announcement, Williams beat Nuria Parrizas-Diaz for her first match win since the 2021 French Open.

Williams is a 23-time Grand Slam champion, most recently in 2017 at the Australian Open, when she was pregnant with daughter Olympia. She said wanting to expand her family was a big reason she plans to step away.

Raducanu, ranked No. 19 in the world, was sharp as she dispatched Williams – and quieted the vocally pro-Williams crowd – in 1 hour, 5 minutes.

“I can’t believe I just played Serena Williams,” the 19-year-old Raducanu said. “It’s something that I think I’m really fortunate to have been able to do, and for our careers to have crossed when there’s such a big (age) gap and watching her growing up, it was an amazing experience to just play her.”

Williams did not speak to reporters after the match.

Fans cheered heartily when Williams was introduced, and again when she won her first point on a Raducanu error in the second game. Williams yelled in frustration when she double-faulted and screamed even louder and pumped her fist when she won the third game of the first set.

“I just knew how important every single point was because you let up a little bit, yeah, she’s going to be all over you,” Raducanu said. “She’s just such a legend.”

Down 2-0 in the first set, she fought back within 4-3 and then 5-4, but Raducanu closed out the set at love. Raducanu rolled from there, with Williams looking frustrated and even resigned near the end.

Williams was sidelined for a year by a torn hamstring suffered last year at Wimbledon, and her late-career injuries have contributed to inconsistency on the court.

The players thrilled the crowd with an exciting rally in the fifth game of the second set, won by Williams with a forehand volley. But she double-faulted on the next point on the way to being broken.

She briskly left the court after the match, waving to the crowd as she exited.

“I think that the crowd was pretty electric,” Raducanu said. “The stadium was really packed, and even if they were cheering for Serena … I was prepared for that.”

Raducanu, who faces veteran Victoria Azarenka in Wednesday’s second round, has not won a title since her out-of-nowhere triumph at the U.S. Open last year.

In the men’s draw, top-ranked Daniil Medvedev of Russia advanced to the third round, beating 24th-ranked Botic van de Zandschlup 6-4, 7-5.

Medvedev, banned by Wimbledon for his country’s invasion of Ukraine, was coming off a second-round loss to Wimbledon finalist Nick Kyrgios last week in Canada.

Kyrgios beat Alejandro Davidovich Fokina 7-5, 6-4 on Tuesday.

Also Tuesday, four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka was eliminated by Shuai Zhang, 6-4, 7-5.

The tournament lost another big name, Coco Gauff, when she retired from her match against qualifier Marie Bouzkova with a left ankle injury. Gauff had her ankle taped after the first set and dropped out after the first game of the second set.

Karolina Pliskova advanced with a 7-5, 6-1 win over Williams’ older sister, Venus. Bencic fell to Sorana Cirstea, 6-2, 6-7 (3), 6-4.

Rafael Nadal, sidelined since withdrawing from Wimbledon with an abdominal tear, practiced before a large crowd. The 22-time Grand Slam champion is scheduled to play Borna Corcic on Wednesday.

TOP INDIANA SPORTS HEADLINES/RELEASES

Indians Fall to Iowa in Low-Scoring Affair, 2-1

INDIANAPOLIS – Cal Mitchell extended his hitting streak to an International League-leading 12 games, but the Indianapolis Indians dropped the opener of a six-game series against the Iowa Cubs on Tuesday night at Victory Field, 2-1.

Down 1-0 following an RBI single by Frank Schwindel in the top of the first inning, the Indians (54-56) knotted the low-scoring game in the bottom of the third. Carter Bins led off the frame with a single and, following an error by third baseman David Bote to put the game-tying run into scoring position, Diego Castillo lined a run-scoring single into center field.

The I-Cubs (51-61) were held to just two hits following the first inning before they took a lead in the top of the eighth. Esteban Quiroz led off the inning with a single, and two batters later Greg Deichmann drove him in on a ground ball to left field off Cam Vieaux (L, 5-1).

Indianapolis threatened in the bottom of the eighth with two walks to sandwich Mitchell’s single, which extended his hitting streak to the longest active streak in the league. After an error by pitcher Brendon Little – Iowa’s fourth of the game – put the game-tying runner in scoring position again in the ninth, Nicholas Padilla (S, 1) slammed the door with two strikeouts.

After Indians starter Johan Oviedo left the game following the second inning, Cody Bolton fanned five over 3.0 one-hit innings and Noe Toribio followed with 2.0 scoreless frames. Eric Hanhold, who has not surrendered a run in his last six appearances (6.1 innings), kept Indy within one thanks to a scoreless ninth inning.

For Iowa, major league rehabber Wade Miley tossed 5.0 two-hit innings and exited the game with the score tied 1-1. Luke Farrell (W, 3-4) entered for him in relief and earned the win with 2.2 innings pitched.

The Indians and I-Cubs continue their six-game series tomorrow afternoon at 1:35 PM ET, as Indianapolis looks for its 1,000th win at Victory Field. Scheduled to take the bump is RHP Osvaldo Bido (1-7, 5.52) for Indy against RHP Caleb Killian (4-1, 3.49)

Shade leaves Noblesville for prep school

Noblesville senior guard Ashlynn Shade is transferring to La Lumiere, a prep school in La Porte. Shade is the odds-on favorite to win Indiana Miss Basketball this coming season and averaged 21 points, nine rebounds, four assists and four steals the Millers last season.

Shade is ranked sixth in her class by ESPN. After receiving offers from just about every major school in the country including IU, Louisville, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Stanford, Tennessee and Vanderbilt, Shade chose UConn.

Colts Release WR Isaiah Ford, Waive T Brandon Kemp, CB Alexander Myres, WR Michael Young Jr. In First Roster Cuts Of Training Camp

WESTFIELD, Ind. – The Colts released wide receiver Isaiah Ford and waived tackle Brandon Kemp, cornerback Alexander Myers and wide receiver Michael Young Jr. ahead of the NFL’s first mandated roster cut-down deadline of training camp on Tuesday.

The Colts’ active roster is now at 86 players; the team has an exemption to carry safety Marcel Dabo as an extra player on the active roster, as he signed with the team through the NFL’s International Pathway Program. Dabo will not count toward the active roster or practice squad limit for the next two years.

The Colts released offensive lineman Jason Spriggs last week.

The Colts will cut five more players from their active roster by next Tuesday’s deadline; final roster cuts are due by 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Aug. 30.

Hoosier Great D.J. White Announces Retirement After 14-Year Professional Career

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Former Indiana All-American D.J. White announced his retirement on Instagram after playing professionally for 14 seasons. He was a first-round pick in the 2008 NBA Draft by the Detroit Pistons who then traded him to the Seattle Supersonics.

White was a unanimous selection as the Big Ten MVP in 2007-08, marking the 16th time that a Hoosier has been named MVP of the Big Ten. White was the 14th Indiana player to earn the honor (Don Schlundt and Scott May won the award twice). He is the last Hoosier to earn that accolade.

White, a native of Tuscaloosa, Ala., was a McDonald’s All-American in 2004. He averaged 17.4 points and 10.3 rebounds as a senior and was named a second team All-American by the Associated Press, Sports Illustrated, CBSSports.com, The Sporting News and by the National Association of Basketball Coaches. He is ranked 18th in IU scoring with 1,447 points.

He started 97-of-99 games for the Hoosiers and averaged 14.6 points and 7.6 rebounds in three full seasons (he was injured and limited to five games in 2005-06).  He hit just one three-pointer in his career, which occurred on his Senior Night against Minnesota just before the halftime buzzer.

He also tied for 12th in career rebounding with 748 caroms. He is tied for fourth all-time at IU in career field goal percentage (56.2%) and single season field goal percentage (60.5%). He was the first IU player to average a double-double (17.4 points and 10.3 rebounds) in a season since Alan Henderson in 1994. They are the only players to do so in the last 45 years.

He played 138 games in the NBA from 2008-14 for Oklahoma City, Charlotte and Boston. His best season came during his rookie campaign when he averaged 8.9 points and 4.6 rebounds. For his career, he averaged 5.9 points and 3.2 rebounds.

He also played in China, Spain, Italy, Turkey and Korea.

Indiana Men’s Track and Field Announces 2022-2023 Recruiting Class

BLOOMINGTON, Ind.  – Indiana Cross Country and Track and Field Head Coach Ron Helmer announced the addition of 15 athletes to the 2022-2023 men’s track and field roster on Tuesday afternoon.

This group of athletes covers multiple event groups with a mix of high school competitors and collegiate transfers joining the Hoosiers for next season.

“This group of men comprising our 2022-2023 recruiting class brings with it an extreme level of optimism,” Helmer said. “The group includes NCAA competitive transfers, several freshmen who will quickly join this group and a very impressive group of enthusiastic walk-on athletes ready to do their part.”

The Sprints and Hurdles group will be bolstered by the addition of IHSAA State Champions Ray Brodie (100m) of Evansville Reitz and John Colquitt (110mH) of Brownsburg.

Christopher Grant will also join the sprints team with the Hoosiers. A native of Kingston, Jamaica, Grant was the 2021 SEC Indoor Runner-up across 60 meters for Auburn. He owns personal bests of 6.64 (60m) and 10.32 (100m) during his collegiate career.

David Olowookere (Drake) provides a boost in the 400-meter hurdles. The 2021 MVC Outdoor Champion in the 400-meter hurdles, he owns a personal best of 50.81 in the event. He has also provided legs in the 4×400 relay during his previous stops. Aiden Hamilton (Evansville, Ind.) and Reece Carroll (Owensboro, Ky.) make up the rest of the additions to the sprints.

The jumps squad is bolstered by the addition of three athletes across three events. Robert Blue, a transfer from Albany, competes in both the Long Jump and Triple Jump with personal bests of 7.57m/24-10 and 16.00m/52-6 respectively.

Eli Crouch, an incoming freshman, joins the Hoosiers as a high jumper, having cleared a personal best of 6’9″. Alex Smith joins as a jumper and sprinter where he’s run 10.63 (100m) and jumped 25’3″ in the Long Jump.

Noah Koch is a welcomed addition to the throws squad where he provides an element of versatility to the strong Indiana team. He owns personal bests from his time at Ashland of 17.97m/58-11 (Shot Put), 58.03m/190-5 (Discus) and 20.45/67-1 (Weight Throw). Koch was 8th in the Discus Throw at the Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships back in May.

Six athletes join to run in the middle and long-distance events. Abe Eckman (Jasper, Ind.), Andrew Mangum (Newburgh, Ind.), Cole Raymond (LaPorte, Ind.) and Keefer Soehngen (Fishers, Ind.) all placed in their respective events at the 2022 IHSAA Track and Field State Championships.

Jaymeson Kinley Named to Preseason All-Big East Team

Coming off a record-breaking season that culminated in a Big East Libero of the Year honor, Jaymeson Kinley was named to the Preseason All-Big East Team, the conference office announced Tuesday.

The libero from Lexington, Ky., set Butler season records in both total digs (610) and digs/set (5.40) in 2021 to earn a unanimous selection to the All-Conference Team and the Libero of the Year recognition. She enters 2022 ranking first in program history in career digs/set at 5.19.

The 12-member team was selected by the conference’s head coaches in the Big East Volleyball Preseason Coaches’ Poll. They were not permitted to vote for their own players or teams.

Butler placed seventh in the team poll, earning 47 points to finish ahead of Xavier, Providence, Georgetown and Seton Hall. Creighton was yet again picked to repeat as conference champions with nine first-place votes and 99 points. The Bluejay’s Norah Sis earned the Big East Preseason Player of the Year honor.

The Bulldogs outperformed expectations a season ago, finishing in fifth place in the Big East with a 10-8 league record after being picked to finish ninth in the preseason. This is the highest the Bulldogs have been projected to finish in the conference since being picked fifth in the 2019 preseason poll.

Kinley is the first Bulldog libero to be named to the Preseason All-Big East Team since Butler joined the conference in 2013. Most recently, middle blocker Melody Davidson was named to the 2021 preseason team.

Soderstrom on United Soccer Coaches Players to Watch List

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – United Soccer Coaches has announced the forwards on its NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Players to Watch lists for the 2022 intercollegiate season. Butler fifth-year student-athlete Katie Soderstrom is one of 41 forwards to make the list which includes United Soccer Coaches All-Americans and first or second team All-Region players from 2021 who are scheduled to return for the 2022 season.

The lists are being released for the first time this season by the Division I All-America Committees to promote college soccer leading up to the official start date for the regular season later this month.

Soderstrom, from Carmel, Ind., is a three-time All-Region honoree who started all 21 matches for Butler in 2021, leading the team with 32 offensive points. She scored 12 goals and was credited with eight assists in a 15-win season that concluded with a trip to the NCAA Tournament. She was second in the BIG EAST in goals, points, and shots per game and, additionally, earned All-BIG EAST First Team honors for the third consecutive season.

“United Soccer Coaches is pleased to be able to bring some additional focus to these outstanding student-athletes from our member schools as pre-season training gets underway,” said Ralph Polson, the Senior College All-America Administrator. “While other players will most certainly emerge, these previous honorees represent some of the best at their positions entering this season.”

Cabrera Jr. on United Soccer Coaches Players to Watch List

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – United Soccer Coaches has announced the forwards on its NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Players to Watch lists for the 2022 intercollegiate season. Butler senior Wilmer Cabrera, Jr. is one of 30 forwards to make the list which includes United Soccer Coaches All-Americans and first or second team All-Region players from 2021 who are scheduled to return for the 2022 season.

The lists are being released for the first time this season by the Division I All-America Committees to promote college soccer leading up to the official start date for the regular season later this month.

Cabrera, Jr., from Bogota, Colombia, is a two-time All-Region honoree who started all 19 matches for Butler in 2021, leading the team in goals (5) and overall points (12). Two of his goals were game-winners, and he was also credited with two assists on the season. He finished the BIG EAST portion of the season fourth in shots (27) and shots per game (2.70), tied for fifth in goals (3), and eighth in points (8), earning a nod to the 2021 All-BIG EAST First Team, his second such honor.

“United Soccer Coaches is pleased to be able to bring some additional focus to these outstanding student-athletes from our member schools as pre-season training gets underway,” said Ralph Polson, the Senior College All-America Administrator. “While other players will most certainly emerge, these previous honorees represent some of the best at their positions entering this season.”

CHINA DOW JOINS IUPUI WOMEN’S BASKETBALL STAFF

INDIANAPOLIS – The IUPUI women’s basketball program is one step closer to the 2022-23 season with the addition of assistant coach China Dow. Dow joins the IUPUI staff after previously serving as a high school head coach.

“I’m so thrilled China has joined our staff,” said head coach Kate Bruce. “She was a phenomenal player at Florida Gulf Coast University and has a great understanding of the game of basketball. China will make an immediate impact on the court as she helps implement our offensive and defensive schemes.”

The Louisville, Ky. native previously spent a year as a high school head coach and two years as an assistant coach at Martha Layne Collins High School in Shelbyville, Ky.

Before coaching Dow played at Middle Tennessee State University for two years before transferring to Florida Gulf Coast University where she finished out her college career.

While at FGCU, Dow was a two-time ASUN champion and was named ASUN tournament MVP twice. She finished her Division I career with 1,093 points, including 749 in her last two seasons. She was named to the ASUN’s All-Decade team a few years after graduating.

Before college, Dow finished her high school career at the Christian Academy of Louisville as the school’s all-time leading scorer with 2,403 points. She was ranked as a four-star recruit and the No. 90 recruit in the nation by ESPN HoopGurlz.

Now with a full staff, the Jaguars are one step closer to tipping off the 2022-23 season.

Cardinals Open 2022 Campaign on the Road

MUNCIE, Ind. – The Ball State soccer team begins the 2022 season on the road with a tough test against Kentucky on Thursday, Aug. 18, followed by a match at Queens on Sunday, Aug. 21. The Cardinals look to improve on a 6-9-2 overall mark from last season.

Head Coach Josh Rife enters his fourth season at the helm of the BSU soccer program. In three seasons in Muncie, the Cardinals have a 27-17-3 recorded under Rife’s tutelage.

Ball State lost its leading scorer in Chelcy Ralph, who tallied nine points on four goals and an assist. The Cardinals graduated Tatiana Mason and Nicky Potts, who rank sixth and ninth, respectively, in Ball State history in points scored. Mason is also tied for sixth in BSU history with 14 career goals, while Potts is tied for 11th with 12 goals.

The Cardinals will have some big shoes to fill, but a talented group looks to step-up with the open opportunity. Ball State returns four fifth-year players in Grace Alsop, Sammi Corcoran, Jenna Dombrowski, and Lexy Smith, all of which compiled over 1,230 minutes of action each. All four were vital cogs in the BSU defense last season, as well as combining for a total of 12 points between them. Sophomore Lexi Fraley leads all returners with eight points, with four goals.

The Cardinals brought in eight freshman and one graduate transfer to help provide depth at needed positions.

Ball State and Kentucky will meet for the first time in program history on Thursday night. The Wildcats are led by Jordyn Rhodes, who finished second in the SEC with 11 of the team’s 16 goals. She earned All-SEC Second Team and United Soccer Coaches All-Southeast Region Second Team accolades for her efforts during the 2021 campaign. Kentucky also returns Hannah Richardson who was the second on the team in points with five, two goals and an assist. Troy Fabiano is in his first season as the head coach for the Wildcats.

Ball State and Kentucky are scheduled for a 7 p.m. start time on Thursday. The match can be seen on the SEC Network+.

The Cardinals and the Royals of Queens will also meet for the first time in program history. The Royals will be competing in their first season at the NCAA DI level. Queens returns two of their top three points scorers from last season. Mia Manuel led the squad with 12 points, on six goals, while Nia Gaither was tied for second on the team with 11 points, five goals and one assist.

The Cardinals and Royals are slated for a 10 a.m. kick on Sunday, Aug. 21.

From the Coach – Head Coach Josh Rife

“We’re excited for the opening weekend. This will be a great test for us. Going on the road is always difficult, but we feel it will help prepare us for the season ahead. The group has been working hard, the returning players continue to push the standard and the new players have adjusted quickly. We will definitely learn a lot about ourselves coming out of this weekend.”

Sycamores announce 2022 team captains

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – Indiana State head football coach Curt Mallory announced the 2022 team captains on Monday night in the Sycamores’ final team meeting of fall preseason camp. The four captains for the upcoming campaign will be: wide receiver Dante Hendrix, defensive lineman Kris Reid Jr., offensive lineman Jose Vazquez IV, and linebacker Geoffrey Brown.

Hendrix serves as a team captain for the second consecutive season, while Reid, Vazquez, and Brown all picked up their first captain nods as voted on by the team.

“This is the ultimate honor to be named a team captain for the season,” Mallory said. “These four guys have meant a lot to the program, and all are very deserving. Each of them has consistently exceeded the standards that we as a coaching staff have placed upon them. Now, the expectation is that they will lead, encourage, and push their teammates to succeed in every facet and we will be all the better for it.”

Hendrix was recognized on the MVFC Preseason All-Conference team and the Phil Steele MVFC Preseason All-Conference team after a standout 2021 campaign. The Florence, Ky. native bounced back from an early season injury in 2021 that saw the wideout miss five games in the regular season, but he returned to post 37 catches for 395 yards and three touchdowns over the final five games of the season with a pair of 10-catch contests coming against Missouri State and Southern Illinois. Hendrix added his first 100-yard game of the season in the contest against the Bears with 10 catches for 121 yards and a score.

Brown, also a Preseason Phil Steele MVFC honoree, led the Sycamores with 61 total tackles and finished second on the team with 8.5 tackles for loss on his way to garnering Freshman All-American honors. The Fishers, Ind. native posted four games with at least seven tackles in 2021 with a career-best 12 tackles coming in the season finale at Illinois State.

Vazquez started all 11 games at right guard for the Sycamores in the 2021 season on his way to earning Phil Steele MVFC preseason honors. The Carol Stream, Ill. native helped pave the way for Indiana State to average 111.6 rushing yards and 291.2 yards of total offense per game in his redshirt sophomore campaign and added Phil Steele All-MVFC Third Team postseason recognition.

Reid Jr. posted 5.0 tackles for loss and 4.0 sacks in the 2021 season to finish among the Sycamores’ team leaders in both categories. The Chicago, Ill. native made his mark in MVFC play last year with a season-high six tackle game coming on the road against South Dakota, while he added sacks against USD, Illinois State, and Western Illinois.

Sycamores announce 2022-23 non-conference schedule

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – Indiana State head women’s basketball coach Chad Killinger unveiled the Sycamores’ 2022-23 non-conference schedule Tuesday afternoon. The nine-game slate features seven home contests at the Hulman Center and a pair games against teams that reached the postseason last year.

“After a very productive summer, we are excited to get back to work to continue preparing for a non-conference schedule that we believe will have us ready to compete at a high level once Missouri Valley Conference play begins,” Killinger said. “We’ve added an exhibition game to the mix this year and with seven of our nine non-conference games at home, there will be plenty of opportunities for our fans to come out to the Hulman Center and see us in person. Scheduling two less non-conference games over the same time period as last year proved to be a bit difficult, but we did our best to put ourselves in a position to be able to use those breaks in the most productive manner possible.”

Fans will have a chance to catch the Sycamores in action before the regular season starts, as Indiana State will host Lincoln University (Mo.) in an exhibition November 3. The Sycamores last hosted an exhibition prior to the 2017-18 season.

Indiana State’s season opener is set for November 7, as the Sycamores will welcome Saint Louis to the Hulman Center to kick off the 2022-23 campaign. The contest with the Billikens will be the first of back-to-back home games to begin the season, as Indiana State will remain at home for a November 16 clash with Central Michigan.

The Sycamores’ first road game of the season sees the Sycamores head to West Lafayette November 20 for a clash with Purdue. The Boilermakers reached the second round of the WNIT last season. Indiana State will also make a trip to Western Michigan December 10, with home games against Ohio (November 26) and Chicago State (November 29) sandwiched between the two away contests. Ohio also made an appearance in the WNIT, falling in the first round.

Indiana State closes its non-conference slate with three straight home games, beginning with a December 14 contest against Western Kentucky. The Sycamores will also play Purdue Fort Wayne (December 18) and Detroit Mercy (December 21) at the Hulman Center before turning their attention to Missouri Valley Conference play.

The remainder of Indiana State’s schedule will be released at a later date once the Missouri Valley Conference finalizes the 20-game conference schedules for each member institution.

Season tickets for the 2022-23 home slate are on sale.

Maddie Alexander, Kloe Pettigrew and CeCe Wahlberg were named to the All-MVC Preseason Team.

Alexander returns for her third season in the net for the Sycamores. She finished 2021 tied for first in MVC play with 56 saves which gave her 132 for her career to move her into sixth all-time at ISU. Alexander was named an All-MVC Second Team selection.

A native of Newton, Iowa, Pettigrew established herself as one of the anchors of the Sycamore defense, playing and starting in all 17 matches while leading the team with 1618 minutes on the field. She was named to the MVC All-Tournament Team.

She scored a career-high six goals which was fifth in the MVC and tied for the team lead with three assists.

U.S. Lawns Football Camp Preseason Preview: Defensive Line

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – The U.S. Lawns Fall Football Preseason continues as Indiana State football prepares for the upcoming September 1 kickoff against North Alabama.
 
The Sycamores will be breaking down the team throughout the fall camp toward the opener in Terre Haute with position-by-position group previews, as well as opponent previews. In today’s edition, we take a look at the defensive line.
 
From the Coordinator
“I think the number one thing that we look at from a defensive lineman is do they consistently play with relentless effort. I think that’s the biggest thing you like to see from those guys up front. We tell them all the time that effort erases mistakes. You see a lot of guys up front that wreak havoc because they are willing to play with more effort than the guy lining up across from them.” – Defensive Coordinator Brad Wilson on the defensive line.
 
Positional Breakdown
Returners: Kris Reid, Jr., Joey ShewIke BransonKenny Butler IIILucas HunterCasey MillerJack Sherman
 
Additions/Newcomers: Gianini Belizaire, Antoineo Harris, Jr., Juju WilliamsJohn PrinceKolten GajewskiTrejuan PurtyMiller BlackwellKris ButlerAntonio BurseShane BennettMatthew BrownBryan Henderson IIJake HoperRyan Whelan
 
Things to Watch
Get That QB (Returning Leaders)
Gone are three of the Sycamores’ top-five tackle for loss leaders from the 2021 season as Inoke MoalaHenrik Barndt, and Kaleb Brewer all moved on. The trio combined for 22.0 tackles for loss and 12.0 sacks last season with Moala (13.0 TFL, 8.0 sacks) finishing among the MVFC leaders in both statistical categories. The trio helped the Sycamores finish 33rd in the FCS in team sacks last season.
 
The Sycamore will be looking first to the veteran duo of Kris Reid, Jr. and Lucas Hunter to keep making plays in the backfield this fall. Reid is the team’s returning sack leader on the year after a redshirt junior campaign where he picked up 4.0 sacks and 5.0 tackles for loss. Reid highlighted last season with a six-tackle game against South Dakota, while picking up a trio of sacks in MVFC play against USD, Illinois State, and Western Illinois. Hunter added 23 total tackles on the year with a season-high six coming against Southern Illinois. He highlighted his season with a 2.0 TFL game and a sack against Missouri State.
 
Transfer Experience
Two of the biggest gains in the Indiana State defensive line room were sophomore Gianini Belizaire and redshirt senior Trejuan Purty. The duo have already helped provide leadership and stabilized a mostly new defensive line room that features 14 new faces, while both have gained valuable experience both in the Valley (Belizaire, Southern Illinois) and Pioneer (Purty, Valparaiso) leagues.
 
Belizaire lined up in all 12 games for the Salukis in the 2021 season and finished among the team leaders with 3.0 tackles for loss and added three fumble recoveries in the team’s playoff run. He picked up at least three tackles in four different games along the SIU defensive line. Purty is a two-time All-PFL selection with the Beacons and picked up 6.5 sacks and 15.0 tackles for loss in 2021. He posted 5.0 tackles for loss in two separate games last year and added a 4.0 sack contest against Presybterian.
 
New Room
The Indiana State defensive line room has seen the most changeover in the last year with 14 new faces expected to battle for playing time this season. Seven transfers and seven true freshmen will battle for playing time in the upcoming season in a room that defensive line coach Mark Smith has called, “one of the best rooms I’ve ever had chemistry-wise.”
 
The Sycamores room features 18 underclassmen as Indiana State continues a trend with youth across multiple position groups in the upcoming year. The group is arguably the deepest it has been in a while with a number of players expected to see consistent playing time in the 2022 season. The battle on the depth chart will likely continue throughout the remainder of fall camp and will likely not be settled until the start of MVFC play.
 
Numbers Watch

  • 5.5 – Indiana State’s defensive line returns 5.5 out of 21.0 sacks recorded by the position group from the 2021 season with Kris Reid, Jr. (4.0) and Lucas Hunter (1.5) the returning leaders on the year.
  • 33 – Indiana State’s defense finished 33rd overall in the FCS in sacks per game (2.45) on the year with ISU recording at least 4.0 sacks in four separate games on the year.
  • 177.3 – Indiana State’s defense allowed just 177.5 rushing yards per game in the 2021 season and finished among the conference leaders on the year in the category.

Regular-Season Kicks Off Thursday Against Vanderbilt For UE Women

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The University of Evansville women’s soccer team will open the 2022 regular-season at Arad McCutchan Stadium on Thursday night, as the Purple Aces will host traditional Southeastern Conference power Vanderbilt.  Kick-off is set for 7:05 p.m. and Thursday’s match can be seen live on ESPN+.

Evansville is coming off of a 7-5-7 regular-season in 2021 which saw the Purple Aces advance to the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament final.  UE returns 21 players from a year ago, led by Preseason All-MVC fifth-year senior forward Emily Ormson (Folsom, Calif./Vista Del Lago HS).  Ormson earned first-team all-Valley honors in 2021 after leading UE with seven goals and 16 total points.

UE’s defense will be anchored by 2021 honorable mention all-MVC defenders Emilie Hill (Franklin, Ind./Franklin Community) and Rachel Rosborough (Mt. Brydges, Ontario, Canada).  Joining the mix for UE is a group of ten talented newcomers highlighted by Evansville natives Ryleigh Anslinger (Memorial HS) and Kaylee Woosley (North HS).

Vanderbilt, meanwhile, is coming of an 8-8-3 season a year ago in which the Commodores finished second in the SEC East with a 5-4-1 conference mark.  Vanderbilt returns two-thirds of its 2021 team this year, led by first-team All-SEC and All-Southeast Region forward Raegan Kelley, who paced the Commodores in both goals (eight) and points (19).  Fellow All-Southeast Region defender Maya Antoine helps key a stout Commodore defense which allowed the fewest goals in SEC play a year ago.

“Vanderbilt will obviously test us,” said UE head coach Chris Pfau.  “They are a very well-coached team and will challenge us in a lot of areas.  I like playing teams like this though because it will only make you better in the long run.  I want our program to be able to compete against the very best, and to do that, you have to test yourself.

“I think that we learned a lot in our exhibition against Saint Louis, and I have really liked the effort in training this week.  We just need to keep working hard and keep improving.  This team has a lot of potential, but it is a process, and we just need to keep focusing on getting better each and every time that we step onto the field.”

Overall, Evansville will play nine regular-season matches at home this year, and season tickets are currently available for just $45.  A combined UE women’s and men’s soccer season pass is also available for $70, which includes access to 18 regular-season home matches.

UE’s Ormson Named To MVC’s Preseason Team

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – University of Evansville senior forward Emily Ormson (Folsom, Calif./Vista Del Lago HS) has been named to the Missouri Valley Conference’s Preseason Team in a vote of the league’s coaches.

Ormson, who earned first team All-MVC honors in 2021 after leading UE in scoring with seven goals and 16 points, was one of 17 players selection to the Preseason Team.  She was the lone UE representative on the Valley’s Preseason Team.

Valparaiso earned the top spot in the league’s preseason poll with eight first-place votes.  Evansville, meanwhile, was voted fifth in the 11-team MVC, just one point shy of fourth place and five points shy of third.

UE will open the regular-season at home on Thursday, August 18 against Southeastern Conference power Vanderbilt.  Overall, Evansville will play nine regular-season matches at home this year, and season tickets are currently available for just $45.  A combined UE women’s and men’s soccer season pass is also available for $70, which includes access to 18 regular-season home matches.

Soccer Picked to Win MVC; Four Beacons Preseason All-Conference

For the first time since joining the Missouri Valley Conference, a Valpo team will be the hunted rather than the hunter.

The conference released its preseason women’s soccer poll Tuesday morning, and by a wide margin, Valpo is picked to finish atop the MVC standings. The Beacons gathered eight out of 11 possible first-place votes and were 22 points clear of second-placed Indiana State as they became the first Valpo program to top an MVC preseason poll.

Plenty of individual accolades were awarded as well, as Valpo topped all conference schools with four players earning preseason All-MVC honors. Seniors Nicole Norfolk (Menomonee Falls, Wis./Divine Savior Holy Angels) and Kiley Dugan (Irwin, Pa./Penn-Trafford) were joined by juniors Nikki Coryell (Aurora, Ill./Metea Valley) and Kelsie James (Carmel, Ind./Carmel) in receiving preseason recognition.

The Beacons earned the spot atop the preseason poll with their performance in the Valley over the last two seasons. The spring 2021 campaign saw Valpo go 3-2-3 in MVC play to finish in a tie for third place in the regular season standings — at that point the program’s best finish in the Valley — and advance to the championship match of the MVC Tournament for the first time. Last fall, the Beacons put together a 10-win campaign and reeled off a nine-match unbeaten streak. Valpo entered the final matchday of the conference slate with a shot at the regular season title and ended the regular season with a 6-1-1 record in MVC play, good for second place in the standings.

The performances of Valpo’s quartet of preseason All-MVC honorees have been vital to the success of the Beacons over the couple seasons. Coryell is the two-time reigning MVC Goalkeeper of the Year and posted five clean sheets in Valley play last season. Dugan, a two-time All-MVC selection, was recently recognized as a national Player to Watch entering the 2022 season by United Soccer Coaches and earned a spot on the organization’s All-Region Second Team last year.

A First Team All-MVC and Second Team All-Region choice last season, James has led the Beacon attack since stepping on campus and led the Valley last season with nine goals, becoming the first Valpo player in program history to pace the conference in goals in a season. Norfolk has anchored the Valpo back line with her play at center back over the last three years, earning Second Team All-MVC accolades in 2021 as she surpassed the program record for consecutive minutes played by a field player.

Valpo opens the 2022 campaign on Thursday afternoon at Eastern Illinois, with the home opener ensuing at Brown Field on Sunday versus Youngstown State at 1 p.m.

Kelsie James Highlighted as Player to Watch by United Soccer Coaches

Valpo junior Kelsie James (Carmel, Ind./Carmel) has been recognized as a Player to Watch entering the 2022 soccer campaign by United Soccer Coaches, as the organization released its list of forwards on Tuesday.

The Beacons’ most prolific attacker and one of the best in the Midwest, James led the Missouri Valley Conference last year with nine goals — becoming the first player in Valpo history to pace their conference in goals in a season. She also tied for the MVC best with 22 points, ranking sixth in a single season in program history in points and seventh in goals. A First Team All-MVC and Second Team All-Region selection, James stepped up her game in conference-only action, pacing all MVC players in both goals (5) and match-winning goals (3).

James is the second Valpo player to earn notice as a Player to Watch entering the season, as senior Kiley Dugan previously earned recognition. The preseason Players to Watch lists are being released for the first time this season by the Division I All-America Committees to promote college soccer leading up to the official start date for the regular season later this month. The lists include United Soccer Coaches All-Americans and first or second team All-Region players from 2021 who are scheduled to return for the 2022 season.

James, Dugan and the rest of the Beacons kick off the regular season Thursday afternoon at Eastern Illinois.

TODAY IN BASEBALL HISTORY

1894       The Phillies rout the Colonels at the Philadelphia Baseball Grounds, 29-4. Louisville right-hander John Wadsworth sets a National League record by giving up 28 singles in one game.

1904       Boston American hurler Jesse Tannehill no-hits the White Sox at Chicago’s South Side Park, 6-0. The Americans will change their name to the Red Sox for the 1907 season. The 30-year-old southpaw issues one walk, hits a batter, and strikes out three en route tossing the third no-hitter in the American League’s brief history.

1909       Nap Lajoie resigns as the manager of the faltering Cleveland club. The fans still support the popular skipper when a response to a newspaper poll indicates the overwhelming choice is to keep the team name as the Naps instead of choosing a new one, which will not happen until they become the Indians following the 1914 season.

1920       Indians’ shortstop Ray Chapman dies as a result of being hit by a pitch thrown by Yankee submariner Carl Mays in yesterday’s contest at the Polo Grounds. The death of the 29-year-old expectant father remains the only on-field fatality of a player in major league history.

1933       On his way to establishing the mark of playing in 2,130 consecutive games, Yankees’ first baseman Lou Gehrig quietly surpasses Everett Scott’s previous record of 1,308 games, appearing in every inning of all but 42 contests. The first baseman’s single and triple don’t prevent the last-place Browns from beating the Bronx Bombers in ten innings at Sportsman’s Park, 7-6.

1937       In Cincinnati, the Cardinals beat the Reds, 8-6, in nine innings at Crosley Field. The final out of the two-and-a-half-hour contest is recorded at 12:02 a.m., marking the first time a major league game ends after midnight.

1944       Johnny Lindell, who enjoys a five-for-five day at the plate, hits four consecutive doubles at Yankee Stadium. The New York center fielder scores twice and drives in two runs in the team’s 10-3 victory over Cleveland at the Bronx ballpark.

1947       The Lowell Orphans, a bankrupt minor league team that moved from Lawrence, MA last month, draws only 85 paying customers to a doubleheader. The team’s poor performance, which includes a twenty-game losing streak, causes the city to evict the New England League franchise from Alumni Field, making it necessary for the club to finish the season on the road.

1948       An estimated crowd of 100,000 fans passes by the body of Babe Ruth, which is on display at Yankee Stadium. After the funeral in two days at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the ‘Bambino’ with the burial at the Cemetery of the Gate of Heaven in Hawthorne, New York.

1948       Yankee first baseman Tommy Henrich hits his fourth grand slam of the season, tying one of the major league records established by Babe Ruth, who died yesterday. The Bambino set the record playing for the Red Sox in 1919, when he hit 29 round-trippers in his final season in Boston.

1957       In a game against New York at Connie Mack Stadium, a foul ball off the bat of Richie Ashburn breaks the nose of spectator Alice Roth, the wife of an editor for Philadelphia’s Bulletin. As she carried off on a stretcher, the Phillies leadoff hitter nails her again during the same at-bat.

1966       After tying Jimmie Foxx yesterday for most career home runs hit by a right-handed batter, Giants slugger Willie Mays passes ‘Double X’ with his 535th homer. The San Francisco center fielder now takes second place on the all-time list, trailing only Babe Ruth’s 714.

1967       The Tigers obtain Eddie Mathews from the Astros to replace a slumping Norm Cash, who skipper Mayo Smith had benched. Detroit’s new first baseman will hit .231 in 36 games for pennant contenders.

1968       After four tries, the Mets still haven’t scored a run when Jim McAndrew starts a game with their 1-0 loss to Houston at Shea Stadium. In his first four major league appearances, the 24-year-old rookie right-hander has a puny 1.82 ERA but is 0-4 due to the team dropping two 2-0 and two 1-0 decisions.

1969       The Mets sweep a doubleheader from the Padres for the second consecutive day, beating San Diego 3–2 in both ends of the Shea Stadium twin bill. Yesterday, behind solid starts by Tom Seaver and Jim McAndrews, the Amazins’ beat the Friars, respectively, 2-0 and 2-1.

1971       After getting hit by a pitch in the third inning by a Steve Arlin fastball, Ron Hunt takes exception of getting plunked again two frames later by the Padres pitcher. The combative Expo second baseman, who will be the only player ejected from the San Diego Stadium contest, shows his displeasure by ripping off backstop Bob Barton’s mask and punching the catcher squarely in the face, igniting a bench-clearing brawl.

1971       During a visit to the White House, 21-year-old Vida Blue, who is presently 22-4, is told by President Nixon that he is the most underpaid player in the game. The Commander-in-Chief shares with the eventual Cy Young Award winner and AL MVP he would like to negotiate the A’s southpaw’s next contract, much to the chagrin of Oakland owner Charlie Finley.

1972       On his wife’s birthday, Steve Carlton extends his streak to 15 consecutive victories when he beats Cincinnati 9-4 to win his 20th game of the season. After the contest, ‘Lefty’ returns from the clubhouse and stands near home plate to acknowledge the deafening cheers from the sold-out crowd at Veterans Stadium.

1973       At Shea Stadium, 42-year-old Willie Mays hits the 660th and final home run of his career off Cincinnati southpaw Don Gullett. The Mets first baseman, who played 21 seasons roaming the outfield for the Giants before coming home to New York last season, is third on the all-time home run career list behind Babe Ruth (714) and Hank Aaron (703).

1976       After stroking a one-out single in the tenth inning, George Brett steals second base and advances to third base on a throwing error by Cleveland catcher Rick Cerone. With Dave Nelson at-bat, the Kansas City third baseman steals home, giving the team a 4-3 walk-off victory over the Tribe at Royals Stadium.

1980       George Brett reaches the .400 mark when he goes 4-for-4 in the Royals’ 8-3 victory over Toronto. The Kansas City third baseman receives a standing ovation from the Royals Stadium crowd of 30,693 fans after blasting a bases-clearing double in the eighth inning.

1980       Al Oliver compiles 21 total bases in a twin bill, tying the American League record when the Rangers sweep a doubleheader from the Tigers, 9-3 and 12-6. The Texas left fielder homered, doubled, and tripled in the opener before going deep three times in the nightcap.

1980       The Tigers retire Al Kaline’s uniform #6 making ‘Mr. Tiger’ the first player in franchise history to receive the honor. The Hall of Famer, who joined the team as an 18-year-old, roamed the outfield for Detroit from 1953 to 1974, becoming the team’s leader in home runs (399) and games played (2,834) during his 22-year playing career in the Motor City.

1984       Pete Rose returns to the Cincinnati lineup for the first time in six years, going 2-for-4, including a single in his first at-bat, in the team’s 6-4 victory over Chicago at Riverfront Stadium. ‘Charlie Hustle’, traded by the Expos yesterday in exchange for infielder Tom Lawless, also replaces Vern Rapp in the dugout in his new role as the club’s player-manager.

1984       A stamp featuring Roberto Clemente, the fourth in a series honoring American sports heroes, is unveiled in Carolina, Puerto Rico, the late Pirates outfielder’s home. The twenty-cent six-color commemorative, designed by Juan Lopez-Bonilla, shows the pensive Hall of Famer wearing his Pittsburgh cap with the Puerto Rican flag in the background.

1986       The Reds player-manager Pete Rose makes his final major league plate appearance, pinch-hitting in the eighth inning of a 9-5 loss to the Padres at Riverfront Stadium. The all-time hit leader, who will end his 24-year career with a .303 batting average, is struck out by future Hall of Famer Goose Gossage.

1990       In the team’s 4-2 victory over Texas at Arlington Stadium, Carlton Fisk breaks Johnny Bench’s record for home runs by a catcher when he hits his 328th, a deep shot to left field off Charlie Hough in the top of the second inning. The White Sox backstop, who hit 162 round-trippers while playing for the Red Sox, will end his 24-year Hall of Fame career with 376 homers, 351 as a catcher.

1992       Kevin Gross, retiring 22 of the final 23 batters he faces on his wife’s birthday, no-hits the Giants at Dodger Stadium, 2-0. The LA right-hander’s no-no averts the team from being swept in a four-game series at home against the Giants for the first time in 69 years.

1999       Jesse Orosco sets a major league mark pitching in his 1,072nd game, passing Dennis Eckersley on the all-time career appearance list. The 43-year-old Baltimore reliever, who will finish his 24-year career appearing in 1252 big-league contests, retires the only batter he faces on a fly ball to center field in the Orioles’ 8-3 victory over Minnesota at Camden Yards.

2001       After hitting a double, triple, and homer, Blue Jay Jeff Frye elects to turn an apparent additional double in the seventh inning into a single, making the infielder only the second player in Blue Jay history to hit for the cycle. Kelly Gruber, the other player to accomplish the feat for the franchise, makes it to the SkyDome in time to give an on-field hug after Frye’s fourth at-bat.

2002       Homering in the seventh inning off Mariner starter James Baldwin, Yankee All-Star Alfonso Soriano becomes the first second baseman to hit 30 home runs and steal 30 bases in the same season. Bobby Bonds is the only other Yankee to post a 30/30 season, accomplishing the feat in 1975.

2002       Alex Rodriguez becomes the sixth player and the first infielder to compile five consecutive 40-home run seasons. The Rangers’ shortstop joins Ralph Kiner (1947-51), Duke Snider (1953-57), Ken Griffey Jr. (1996-2000), Sammy Sosa (1998-2002), and Babe Ruth (1926-32), who established the record with seven straight 40-homer seasons.

2003       Good grief, Peanuts character Charlie Brown joins the late broadcaster Bob Prince, Negro League star Josh Gibson, former catcher Manny Sanguillen, and current shortstop Jack Wilson honored by the Pirates with a bobblehead doll giveaway day. Almost ten percent of the nearly 18,000 Peanuts strips created by Charles Schulz focused on baseball.

2003       The Rally Monkey, the Angels’ unofficial mascot, is honored for its contribution to last season’s world championship with a promotion, featuring a bobblehead doll wearing an Anaheim jersey with the primate’s name on the back. The Rally Monkey Bobble Belly joins other giveaways paying tribute to Angel legends, including Troy Glaus (2002 World Series MVP), Adam Kennedy (ALCS MVP), and Mike Scioscia (AL Manager of the Year).

2004       Mark Teixeira becomes the second player in franchise history to complete the cycle, stroking a seventh-inning single off Cliff Bartosh in the team’s 16-4 rout of the Indians at Arlington’s Ameriquest Field. The 24-year-old switch-hitting first baseman finishes the day, going 4-for-5 and driving in a career-high seven runs.

2004       At the age of 19, B.J. Upton becomes the first teenager in more than six years to homer in a major league game when he goes deep at Tropicana Field in the Rays’ 8-3 victory over Anaheim. Aramis Ramirez was the last major leaguer to hit a round-tripper before his 20th birthday when he connected in 1998 off Philadelphia’s Tyler Green, playing for the Pirates.

2004       As she enters Sacramento’s Raley Field at 6:27 p.m., five-year-old Olivia Perez is honored by the River Cats as she becomes the four millionth fan in franchise history. The Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland A’s reaches the milestone faster than any club in minor league baseball history.

2005       St. Louis announces the franchise has broken its single-season attendance record of 3.43 million set in 1989. The first-place Cardinals have sold 3.45 million tickets for the team’s farewell season at 40-year-old Busch Stadium.

2006       For the first time in big-league history, both teams hit leadoff home runs in the first two innings of a game. In a 5-4 White Sox victory over Kansas City at U.S. Cellular Field, Royals batters David DeJesus and Emil Brown homer leading off in the first and second inning, respectively, as do Pablo Ozuna and Jermaine Dye for Chicago.

2008       Melvin Mora collects five hits, including two homers and a pair of doubles, in the Orioles’ 16-8 rout over Detroit. The Birds’ third baseman, who drives in a career-high six runs with 12 total bases, leads Baltimore’s 22-hit attack at Comerica Park.

2008       The Nationals play their longest game in team history in terms of time when it takes the team five hours and 29 minutes to beat Atlanta at Turner Field, 8-7. Adam LaRoche breaks the 7-7 tie when he leads off the top of the 15th inning with a home run over the right-field wall off right-hander Kris Medlen.

2008       During the fifth inning of an 11-8 loss to the Twins at the Metrodome, Mariners’ right-hander R. A. Dickey throws four wild pitches, tying a major league record for WPs in one frame. The infamous inning also includes a passed ball charged to Seattle’s backstop Kenji Johjima.

2008       The Blue Jays set a team record for two-baggers, slugging ten doubles in a 15-4 victory over the Red Sox at Fenway Park. With his 5-for-6 performance, Alex Rios ties a club mark, becoming the third player in franchise history to hit four doubles in one game.

2008       In a pregame 55-minute ceremony at Minute Maid Park, Craig Biggio becomes the ninth Astro to have his jersey number retired. The Smithtown, N.Y. native, who wore number 7, is the team’s all-time leader in games (2,850) and seasons (20).

2008       Josh Hamilton becomes only the sixth major leaguer to be intentionally walked with the bases loaded. Rays’ manager Joe Maddon’s decision to give the Rangers’ slugger a run-producing free pass in the ninth inning is successful when Tampa Bay goes on to win the game in Arlington, 7-4.

2012       Lugazi, Uganda, becomes the first team from Africa to appear in the 66-year history of the Little League World Series when Aguadulce, Panama, defeat them, 9-3. None of the African youths, who have become the darlings of the tournament, have been playing baseball for more than two years.

2013       Baseball suspends Miguel Tejada for 105 games, one of the longest in baseball history after he reportedly tested positive on multiple occasions this season for Adderall, an amphetamine used to treat attention-deficit disorder. The 39-year-old Royals infielder, a six-time All-Star, apologizes to the organization, his teammates, and the Kansas City fans, explaining his medical condition requires medication but that he was wrong to take it while re-applying for a Therapeutic Use Exemption.

2013       Clayton Kershaw blanks the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, 5-0, giving the Dodgers their first double-digit winning streak since 2006. In their last fifty games, the team’s 42 victories, including a 25-3 mark since the All-Star break, equals the 1941 Yankees and 1942 Cardinals for the best record for that span of games since 1900.

2014       Michael Cuddyer is the 30th player to hit for multiple cycles but becomes only the third player to accomplish the feat in both the American and National League, joining Bob Watson (Astros, 1977, and Red Sox, 1979) and John Olerud (Mets, 1997, and Mariners, 2001). An eighth-inning double off Reds reliever Manny Parra, who yielded three hits in the outfielder’s first cycle in 2009 while pitching for the Brewers, completes the rare baseball occurrence.

WORLD SERIES HISTORY-1958

Almost a year to the day, the defending champion Milwaukee Braves and perennial champion New York Yankees met again for the second time in as many years. The National League champions had surprised everyone the previous year after overcoming an early deficit to dominate their American League rivals for the remainder of the Series. For the first time, (in a long time) the Bronx Bombers were not the heavy favorites after losing two of the last three Fall Classics. It was new territory for Casey Stengel’s Yankees and they were determined to even it up. Many New York sports writers had already turned on their home team and several quoted predictions of the end of baseball’s greatest dynasty.

Game 1 featured Warren Spahn going against Whitey Ford for a quick 4-3 opening victory. Things were not as close in Game 2 as the Braves’ Lew Burdette (a three complete-game winner in ’57) showed his talents on the other side of the plate with a three-run blast that capped off a seven-run rally in the first. He continued his balanced attack by holding the Yankees to just two runs and three hits going into the ninth. Things changed quickly however, as he was shelled for four hits resulting in three runs. The Yankees Hank Bauer had a late-inning homer and Mickey Mantle added his second of the day. Over the course of his career “The Mick” would go on to set the all-time World Series home run record that still stands to this day. Both efforts went in vain though as Milwaukee went on to a crushing, 13-5 triumph. The third outing took the Series in a completely different direction as Don Larsen and Ryne Duren both combined for a 4-0 shutout that left the hitters on both benches high and dry. Bauer in fact, was the only slugger to generate any offense with a bases-loaded single and a two-run homer that extended his Series hitting streak to seventeen games. The record wouldn’t last long though as Warren Spahn would outdo the Yankees outfielder the very next day.

Down three games to one, New York was nearing the end of an era and the Braves were on the verge of clinching their second consecutive title. Burdette returned to face Bob Turley (a twenty-one game winner) in a final showdown. Backed by Gil McDougald’s bases-empty homer in the third, Elston Howard’s spectacular snatch (and double play) off Red Schoendienst’s sixth-inning liner and a six-run rally against Burdette and reliever Juan Pizarro in the bottom of the sixth, Turley emerged a 7-0 winner by giving up only five-hits and chalking up ten strikeouts. Things remained in their favor the following day as the Yanks squared the Series with a 4-3, ten-inning victory in Game 6.

For the second straight year, Larsen would be chosen as the Yankees’ starting pitcher in Game 7. And for the second straight year, he lasted exactly three innings before hitting the showers. A short-rested Turley returned in relief and after escaping a bases-loaded situation in the third, held a 2-1 lead over Burdette and the Braves entering the Milwaukee sixth. With two out, though, Del Crandall belted a game-tying home run. After both clubs were held scoreless in the seventh, Burdette retired the first two Yankees in the eighth. Fortunately for New York, the Braves luck was about to run out. First, Yogi Berra tagged the Milwaukee ace for a double. Then, Elston Howard followed suite with a go-ahead single. Andy Carey singled off of third baseman Eddie Mathews’ glove and finally Skowron crashed a devastating home run to left-center, The Yankees were ahead, 6-2, and the score did not change. With Turley yielding only a single run and two-hits in 6 2/3 innings of relief, the Yankees managed to beat the odds for their eighteenth World Series title.

The surprise comeback had not only restored the Yankees to their previous stature, it had also tied a record as they became only the second team (1925 Pittsburgh Pirates) to rally back from a 3-1 deficit to win baseball’s most prestigious crown. Hank Bauer (who was a nine-Series veteran) led with most runs scored (six), most hits (ten), most home runs (four) and most runs batted in (eight). He also topped the Yankees sluggers with a .323 average. Despite less-than-stellar stats in his first four Classics (seven for fifty-seven with a .123 avg.), he combined for eighteen hits, six home runs, fourteen RBIs and a .290 average against the Braves in ’57 and ’58.

ALL-STAR GAME HISTORY-1967

Although many All-Star Games had featured great pitching duels and stand-out performances on the mound, no other game to date had been as one sided as this one. “Strikeout classic” would have been a more appropriate title for this Midsummer Classic, which featured twelve pitchers – all of which had at least one strikeout for an All-Star record thirty strikeouts.

Once again, the game went into extra innings that resulted in a National League win. The senior circuit was shut out twelve straight innings — the third through the fourteenth. The Americans were shut out the last nine. Richie Allen had homered against Dean Chance in the second; in the sixth, Brooks Robinson tied it with a home run against Fergie Jenkins. There it remained until the fifteenth, when Tony Perez, the game’s Most Valuable Player, sent Catfish Hunter’s pitch over the left-field fence.

This game went into the record books for both the longest All-Star Game as well as the first game in which home runs accounted for all of the scoring.

TODAY IN FOOTBALL HISTORY

August 17, 1928 – The Detroit Wolverines franchise is launched on this date. The Wolverines were a continuation of the 1926 Cleveland Bulldogs team that had fallen on hard times, but they had the NFL’s second biggest star in Benny Friedman. Mr. Friedman was Cleveland native who played college ball at Michigan. Back in that era of the pigskin, college football was king and both of these mentioned pro teams attempted to cash in on the college popularity. The team only played one season as the Detroit Wolverines, as in 1929 they were absorbed into the New York Football Giants. In an interesting spin, the Giants had never beaten Benny Friedman. They were 0-2-2 against him lifetime 0-1-1 against both the Cleveland Bulldogs and the Detroit Wolverines. The 1927 World Champion Giants swept the entire league except for one team, the Friedman lead Bulldogs. Apparently, Giants owner, Tim Mara, had seen enough and figured if he couldn’t beat Friedman he bought him and the rest of the Wolverines team.

August 17, 1951 – At Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois the 18th edition of the Chicago College All-Star Game is played and it is the Cleveland Browns who take apart the college stars 33-0. The game’s MVP, always the top College All-Star performing player was Lewis McFadin from Texas.

August 17, 1969 – Yale Bowl, New Haven, Connecticut – The New York Jets get their first ever game with their cross town rival New York Giants in a preseason game. The defending Super Bowl champion New York Jets defeated the New York Giants 37-14 in an exhibition game, resulting in the firing of Giants head coach Allie Sherman according to Yahoo.com. It was the first game between the Jets and Giants, who have played annually in the preseason every year since.

August 17, 1991 – Arena Bowl V is played at Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena and it is the visiting Tampa Bay Storm that wins the title over the Detroit Drive in an exciting 48-42 final score. Stevie Thomas, the wide receiver/linebacker is named the games’ MVP.
