Dodgers head to Series…Wild NFL finish…Westbrook shines in new Thunder lineup

CHICAGO (AP) – The L.A. Dodgers are in the World Series. Kike Hernandez homered three times and drove in seven runs, and the Dodgers clobbered the Chicago Cubs 11-1. It will be the L.A.’s first trip to the Series in almost three decades. It’s the first pennant for one of baseball’s most storied franchises since Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda managed Los Angeles to its last championship in 1988. The Dodgers will host the Yankees or Astros in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night.

HOUSTON (AP) – Joe Girardi says the New York Yankees would have preferred not having a day off Thursday after winning three straight home games to take a 3-2 lead in the AL Championship Series. Houston manager A.J. Hinch certainly has no sympathy because his team knows that feeling. The Astros won the first two ALCS games at home last week before an off day stopped their momentum. Game 6 is Friday night in Houston.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – The Oakland Raiders have snapped a four-game losing streak in a 31-30 squeaker over the Kansas City Chiefs. Derek Carr threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree on the final play after the game was extended by two straight defensive holding calls. Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch was ejected after shoving an official when he ran onto the field during a scuffle against the Kansas City Chiefs. It all started when Carr was hit late on a run.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Much has changed about the Thunder. One thing hasn’t – Russell Westbrook still gets triple-doubles. The reigning MVP had 21 points, 16 assists and 10 rebounds, and Oklahoma City beat the New York Knicks 105-84. Thursday night’s game was the Thunder’s first regular-season game with All-Star additions Paul George and Carmelo Anthony.

DETROIT (AP) – The Detroit Tigers were in talks Thursday to hire Ron Gardenhire as manager, according to a person with knowledge of the discussions. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made. Gardenhire was the bench coach this season for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He managed the Minnesota Twins from 2002-14.

Cubs still kicking…Yanks in control…Setback for Luck…NFL leaves anthem decision to players

CHICAGO (AP) – The Chicago Cubs have forced a fifth game in the National League Championship Series by hitting three solo homers in a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Javier Baez homered twice and Willson Contreras hit a solo shot to back Jake Arrieta , who gave up a run and three hits over 6 2/3 innings. Cody Bellinger and Justin Turner homered for the Dodgers, who ended their team-record, six-game postseason winning streak.

NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Yankees have a three-games-to-two lead in the American League Championship Series following their third straight win over the Astros, 5-0. Masahiro Tanaka  struck out eight while holding the Astros to three hits over seven innings. Gary Sanchez hit a solo homer and an RBI double for the Yankees, who can close out the series Friday in Houston.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Andrew Luck’s return has taken a step back after the Colts told the quarterback not to practice this week due to soreness in his surgically-repaired shoulder. He had been throwing every other day the past two weeks, but general manager Chris Ballard told reporters that trainers and doctors shut down Luck after he received a cortisone shot. Luck had surgery in January for a partially torn labrum in his throwing shoulder and didn’t return to the practice field until two weeks ago.

NEW YORK (AP) – NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league is not changing its national anthem policy to require players to stand during the national anthem. Goodell and several owners said at the league’s fall meetings that altering the language from “should stand” to “must stand” was not discussed. New York Giants owner John Mara noted that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones “spoke at length” to the other owners about the anthem issue.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Louisville trustees have fired athletic director Tom Jurich two days after the school’s athletic association dismissed head basketball coach Rick Pitino. The Board of Trustees voted 10-3 on Wednesday to fire Jurich after 20 years in the way of the school’s implication in a national federal investigation of college basketball. Jurich shepherded Louisville’s 2014 entry into the Atlantic Coast Conference and had been on paid administrative leave since Sept. 27.

Yanks get even…Dodgers go 3-up in NLCS…Cavs top Celts…Rockets rally to beat Warriors

NEW YORK (AP) – The American League Championship Series continues tonight after the Yankees tied it at two games apiece with a 6-4 comeback win over Houston. The Astros led 4-0 in the seventh until Aaron Judge belted a solo homer. Judge also tied it with an RBI double before Gary Sanchez doubled home a pair in the Yankees’ four-run eighth.

CHICAGO (AP) – The Los Angeles Dodgers remain unbeaten in the postseason after Chris Taylor’s solo homer and RBI triple led a 6-1 win over the Chicago Cubs in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series.

Andre Ethier also homered for the Dodgers, who can close out a four-game sweep tonight at Wrigley Field.

Kevin Durant appeared to hit a game-winning jumper for the Warriors, but the officials checked the replay and ruled that the shot came after the buzzer sounded.

NEW YORK (AP) – A group of 11 NFL owners and more than a dozen players met at the league’s headquarters yesterday to discuss social issues, a discussion that Indianapolis Colts defensive back Darius Butler termed “positive.” Among the topics discussed was enhancing the players’ platforms for speaking out on social issues. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross characterized the meeting as “constructive” but added that the NFL’s policy on the national anthem “did not come up.”

Cubs, Nats to try again…No Cup bid for US…Bradford MRI encouraging…Cards get Peterson

CHICAGO (AP) – The Cubs and Washington Nationals remain in Chicago after Game 4 of the NL Division Series was rained out.

The Cubs lead the series two games to one as they try to advance to the NL Championship series for the third consecutive year.

COUVA, Trinidad (AP) – Trinidad has stopped the United States from qualifying for next year’s World Cup, posting a 2-1 victory that keeps the Americans out of soccer’s showcase for the first time in 28 years. Needing nothing more than a tie to advance, the U.S. fell behind 2-0 in the 37th minute and couldn’t get the equalizer after Christian Pulisic scored two minutes into the second half. Defender Omar Gonzalez was credited with an own goal in the 17th minute after attempting to clear a cross.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) – Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford has received some good news concerning his ailing left knee after he was pulled from Monday’s 20-17 win over the Bears due to continued discomfort. Bradford has undergone another MRI that revealed no additional ligament damage or bone bruising. Vikings trainer Eric Sugarman says Bradford was just bothered by aggravation of the wear and tear in the joint that has hampered him for the past four weeks.

PHOENIX (AP) – The Arizona Cardinals hope they have bolstered their running back depth by acquiring four-time All-Pro Adrian Peterson and releasing veteran Chris Johnson.

Peterson has played sparingly with little success for the Saints this season, gaining just 81 yards on 27 carries.
