Peters Township won to stay within a game of the 6A Southeastern Conference leaders. Canon-McMIllan's loss drops the Big Macs a game out of the playoff race halfway through the season.

Ringgold's win pulls the Rams into a three-way tie for third. Elizabeth-Forward stands alone atop the 3A Interstate Conference3, dropping McGuffey into a four-way tie for second. Waynesburg's loss is the Raiders 17th in a row. Burgettstown, Beth-Center and Wash High all won, staying tied atop the 2A Century Conference. California and Carmichaels both won, staying one game up on West Greene and Ft. Cherry in the 1A Tri-County South.

Cards Rally in Ninth to Beat Pirates
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Randal Grichuk scored after an error by Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer, capping a frantic ninth-rally that lifted the surging St. Louis Cardinals over Pittsburgh 4-3 on Friday night. The playoff-chasing Cardinals won their fourth straight, despite trailing by a run entering the ninth. Stephen Piscotty led off with a double to right against closer Felipe Rivero (5-3), and Jedd Gyorko followed with a pinch-hit RBI single. After Tommy Pham's single, Grichuk pinch-ran for Gyorko at third. He scored when Mercer misplayed Dexter Fowler's sharp groundball. Former Pirates reliever Juan Nicasio (4-5) got the win after working the eighth and ninth. Fowler and Piscotty had two hits each. David Freese had an RBI double for the Pirates, who have dropped eight of nine. Rivero blew a save for only the second time in 20 chances this season.

Court Set Hearing Over NFL's Blocked Suspension of Elliott
UNDATED (AP) - The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans will hear oral arguments on Oct. 2 in the NFL's bid to reinstate Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension over a domestic abuse case in Ohio. The date clears the way for last year's NFL rushing leader to play Monday night at Arizona and Oct. 1 against the visiting Los Angeles Rams. A Texas judge last week granted Elliott's request for an injunction that blocked the NFL's suspension.

Tigers Moving On From Ausmus
UNDATED (AP) - The Detroit Tigers will have a new manager in place next year. General manager Al Avila has announced that Brad Ausmus won't return to the club. Ausmus was 312-325 over nearly four full seasons, including a Central Division title in his first year. The Tigers have struggled the last two seasons and currently own the American League's second-worst record at 62-91, just a half-game ahead of the Chicago White Sox.
