Tigers 4, Yankees 3 – F/10 – Volpe becomes 20-20 player as Yankees lose to Tigers 4-3 in 10-inning series finale
Gleyber Torres’ throwing error in the 10th inning gave Detroit a 4-3 win against the New York Yankees, allowing the Tigers to salvage the series finale. The Yankees were trying for their first four-game winning streak of the season since May 27-30. Instead the Yankees suffered their ninth walk-off loss of the season. Down 3-0 in the ninth, Anthony Volpe tied the game with a three-run homer to right off Tigers closer Alex Lange to become the first Yankees rookie to reach 20 homers and 20 stolen bases in a season. He is the 15th rookie with a 20-homer, 20-stolen base season, and the second this year with Arizona’s Corbin Carroll.

MLB –Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf says he doesn’t see how shooting happened in ballpark
White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf is pushing back on the possibility that a shooting at Guaranteed Rate Field came from a gun inside the ballpark. Two women were injured in a shooting during the team’s 12-4 loss to Oakland last week. Chicago police are investigating what happened, including whether the gun was fired inside or outside of the facility. Fred Waller, interim superintendent of Chicago Police Department, said Monday that investigators have nearly ruled out the possibility that the shots came from outside the ballpark. But Reinsdorf says he doesn’t “see any way in the world that the shots could have come from inside the ballpark.”

MLB – White Sox promote former player Chris Getz to general manager
The Chicago White Sox promoted Chris Getz to general manager, staying inside the organization for the position almost two decades after the franchise last won a playoff series. Getz is replacing Rick Hahn, who was fired by owner Jerry Reinsdorf along with president of baseball operations Ken Williams on Aug. 22. Williams was in his 11th season as executive vice president after serving as the club’s general manager for 12 years. Hahn had been with Chicago since 2002. The White Sox have a total of three victories in three playoff appearances since winning the 2005 World Series.

Tennis – John Isner heads to retirement after US Open last-set tiebreaker losses in
John Isner has headed off into retirement after losing in singles and doubles at the U.S. Open. The 38-year-old American was beaten in final-set tiebreakers in both matches. That included a five-set exit against Michael Mmoh in singles before a packed house at the Grandstand at Flushing Meadows. Isner leaves with the record for career aces and finished with 48 against Mmoh. Isner and Jack Sock then lost in doubles. Isner is best known for winning the longest match in tennis history — one that lasted 11 hours, 5 minutes and ended 70-68 in the fifth set against Nicolas Mahut at Wimbledon in 2010.

NCAA – ACC leaders set to take up Stanford, Cal, SMU expansion, 2 UNC trustees oppose
With Atlantic Coast Conference university leaders seemingly on the verge of deciding whether to expand with Stanford, California and SMU, two members of North Carolina’s board of trustees announced their opposition to the move. ACC presidents and chancellors are scheduled to meet Friday morning to again consider a Western expansion, a person with direct knowledge of the meeting told The Associated Press. It was unclear if the presidents will take a decisive vote on adding new members, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the conference and schools were not making internal discussions public.

NCAAFB – MSU hosts CMU, aiming to bounce back from bad season under Mel Tucker
Michigan State and Central Michigan are looking to bounce back from bad seasons, which followed successful years. The Chippewas were 4-8 overall and 3-5 in the Mid-American Conference last year after a nine-win season. The Spartans were 5-7 overall and 3-6 in the Big Ten last year, following an 11-win season. Michigan State will host Central Michigan on Friday night in a season-opening game for each team. The Chippewas beat the Spartans in consecutive years three decades ago and for a third time in 2009.

NCAAFB – Jim Harbaugh laments suspension, keeping him from No. 2 Michigan opener
Jim Harbaugh is used to being busy on Saturdays in the fall. When No. 2 Michigan hosts East Carolina on Saturday, Harbaugh will be serving the first game of a three-game suspension imposed by the school stemming from an NCAA investigation. Harbaugh says he didn’t know if he would watch his team play on TV or not. The Wolverines are favored to win by five-plus touchdowns even without their coach.

NCAAFB – Tennessee State will become the first HBCU and FCS foe to play Notre Dame
No. 13 Notre Dame is embarking on another milestone moment Saturday. One of college football’s most storied programs will host Tennessee State — marking the first time the Fighting Irish have faced a Historically Black College or University or an FCS school. Coach Eddie George’s program has one win over an FBS foe — beating Georgia State in the 2017 season opener. And Notre Dame coach Marcus Freeman, one of 14 Black coaches in the FBS, is embracing the opportunity to give the Tigers program a moment in the spotlight.

Last Night

Lakeshore 15, Niles 14

  • Matt Vaughn’s 14 yard touchdown pass to Zack Ort with :27 seconds left and the ensuing 2 point conversion pass again to Ort gave Lakeshore a 15-14 comeback win over Niles.  Niles took a 14-7 lead with 2:28 to go in the game, on a four yard touchdown run by Kaden Garrod capping a 92 yard drive.  But Lakeshore responded just over 2:00 later, with Vaughn completing a 48 yard pass to Kaden Griffiths to set up Lakeshore for the go-ahead score.  Both teams are now 1-1 on the season, and it keeps Niles winless in their history at Al Stockman Stadium.
