Dodgers in, Shildt out...Bucs beat Eagles

October 15, 2021

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — It will be the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Atlanta Braves competing for the National League pennant. Cody Bellinger’s RBI single in the ninth inning sent the Dodgers to a 2-1 win over the Giants in Game 5 of the Division series last night. Mookie Betts had four of the Dodgers’ eight hits and Julio Urias  worked four innings of one-run relief after being passed over for the starting nod.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have fired manager Mike Shildt over philosophical differences within the organization. The move Thursday came a week after St. Louis lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League wild-card game. Shildt was heading into the final year of his contract.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Leonard Fournette’s second rushing touchdown of the game gave the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a 28-7 lead in a 28-22 downing of the Philadelphia Eagles. Tom Brady was 34 of 42 for 297 yards, two touchdowns and one interception as the Buccaneers improved to 5-1 heading into the bye week. Fournette finished with 81 yards rushing and Antonio Brown had nine catches for 93 yards and a TD.

CHARLOTE, N.C. (AP) — Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey did not practice yesterday, a sign that he could miss his third straight game while trying to rehab from a hamstring injury. The 2019 All-Pro running back had participated in four straight practices on a limited basis. Coach Matt Rhule  told reporters on Wednesday that McCaffrey was “50-50” for the game and that his playing status would likely come down to a game-time decision.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson is expected to miss at least the first week of the regular season. Williamson’s recovery from surgery to repair a right foot fracture is taking longer than anticipated, although Pelicans basketball operations chief David Griffin says nothing “has gone wrong.” He says it’s just taking longer for Williamson’s bones to heal than the team had hoped when they initially forecast his return for the regular season opener.
