LOS ANGELES (AP) – The Los Angeles Dodgers have a 2-0 lead in the NL Championship Series after Justin Turner’s three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth gave them a 4-1 win over the Chicago Cubs.

Russell’s home run was one of just three hits by Chicago, which hosts Game 3 on Tuesday.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Green Bay Packers say they could spend the rest of the season without quarterback Aaron Rodgers because of a broken collarbone suffered in yesterday’s 23-10 loss at Minnesota. Rodgers was carted off the field after taking a hit from Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr following a roll-out pass in the first quarter. Backup Brett Hundley threw his first NFL touchdown pass, but he was just 18 of 33 for 157 yards, three interceptions and four sacks.

NEW YORK (AP) – Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance against the NFL. The former San Francisco 49s quarterback alleges that he remains unsigned as a result of collusion by owners following his protests during the national anthem. Kaepernick started a national conversation about political activism by athletes last season when he decided to sit, and then kneel, during the anthem to bring attention to mistreatment of African-Americans by police.

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) – Brad Keselowski  gave his NASCAR championship hopes a big boost by winning Sunday at Talladega. Keselowski earned an automatic berth into the third round of the playoffs after entering the race ranked 10th among the 12 contenders. There were only 14 cars running at the conclusion, and only four were playoff drivers.

UNDATED (AP) – Alabama is the unanimous No. 1 team in the latest Associated Press college football poll, with Penn State climbing to second following Clemson’s loss to Syracuse.

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. Neither manager elected to change starting pitchers for the game, which means Jake Arrieta will throw for the Cubs against Tanner Roark . 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. The Cardinals are sending a conditional 2018 draft pick for Peterson, who has rushed for 11,828 yards and 97 touchdowns in his 10-plus pro seasons. Peterson has played sparingly with little success for the Saints this season, gaining just 81 yards on 27 carries.

UNDATED (AP) – NFL owners will meet next week to consider changes to a game manual that says players “should” stand during the national anthem. The league had left the guideline to the discretion of players who kneeled in larger numbers after criticism from President Donald Trump. Commissioner Roger Goodell told club executives Tuesday in a memo obtained by The Associated Press that the anthem issue is dividing the league from its fans.

CHICAGO (AP) – The Chicago Cubs are a victory away from a return to the NLCS after a 2-1 win over Washington yesterday.

NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Yankees have roared back from a 2-0 deficit to tie their divisional series with Cleveland at two games apiece. Slumping rookie Aaron Judge came up with a key hit to score two runs for New York in its 7-3 victory over the visiting Indians at Yankee Stadium.

BOSTON (AP) – The Houston Astros advanced to an American League championship series for the first time, edging the Boston Red Sox 5-4 at Fenway Park.

USA Team Advances to Gold Medal Game

TAIPEI, Taiwan — USA Team, represented by the Iowa baseball team, erupted for five runs in the seventh inning to rally for an 8-4 victory over the Czech Republic in the super round semifinals to advance to Tuesday’s gold medal game of the World University Games.

USA will play the winner of Japan and Korea for a gold medal Tuesday at 5:30 a.m. (CT).  The game will be available online at https://livestream.com/fisu.

Trailing 4-3 through 6 1/2 innings, USA put together a one-out rally to take control. Base hits from sophomores Grant Judkins and Kyle Crowl and a hit by pitch by pinch-hitter Tanner Wetrich loaded the bases.

Junior Chris Whelan gave USA a 5-4 lead with a two-run single to left field before pinch-hitter Justin Jenkins drew a walk to load the bases a second time. Junior Robert Neustrom provided the knockout blow with a bases-clearing double into the right center field gap to extend the USA lead to 8-4. It was Neustrom’s fourth hit of the game.

Junior Zach Daniels earned his second victory of the Games in relief, tossing three shutout innings. He scattered three hits and fanned one.
