Bucs Take Series Opener
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pinch-hitter Josh Harrison singled home Francisco Cervelli with the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and the Pittsburgh bullpen continued its hot streak in the Pirates' 5-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Friday night. Gregory Polanco had three hits, drove in an insurance run and preserved a tie by throwing out Jose Reyes of the Rockies at the plate from right field to end the top of the eighth. Tony Watson (3-1) earned the win with a scoreless inning of relief. Mark Melancon worked a perfect ninth for his major league-leading 42nd save. Pittsburgh relievers have won 18 straight decisions since last taking a loss on June 25. The Pirates improved to 13-3 over their last 16 games to strengthen their grip on the top wild card spot in the National League.

Otters Rally Early; Crush Wild Things
The Evansville Otters scored seven runs in the first inning and cruised to an 11-2 victory over the Washington Wild Things on Friday night. Josh Allen belted a three-run homer for the Otters in the big inning and Nik Balog finished the night with two hits, including a solo homer and two-run single. Starter Blaine Howell (1-1) was the winning pitcher with six effective innings and reliever Brodie Liebrandt earned his first pro save with three scoreless innings of relief. Washington starter Ernie Zaragoza (6-7) lasted just two innings and suffered the loss. The win was Evansville’s sixth in a row and Washington’s sixth consecutive defeat.

Illinois Fires Beckman
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - Illinois has fired football coach Tim Beckman one week before the start of the season, citing preliminary results of an investigation into allegations of player mistreatment and inappropriate behavior. Athletic director Mike Thomas said Friday that the timing is unfortunate, but "it was in the best interests of student-athletes to act now rather than when a final report is issued and publicly released." He says that would likely could during the season. Former starting lineman Simon Cvijanovic complained first on Twitter on May 9 and in numerous interviews that Beckman and his staff had tried to shame him into playing hurt misled him about medical procedures following a knee injury. Beckman was 12-25 at Illinois, improving the team's record each season. The Illini went 6-7 last year.

Al Arbour Dies
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Al Arbour, who coached the New York Islanders to four consecutive Stanley Cup championships and ranks as the NHL's second-most winningest coach, has died, team officials announced Friday. He was 82. The cause of death is unclear, though Arbor was battling a lengthy illness and had been living in Florida. Arbour transitioned from a successful 14-season NHL playing career as a defenseman to become one of the league's all-time best coaches. Beginning in 1973-74, Arbour led the Isles to 15 playoff appearances and won an NHL record 119 playoff games over 19 seasons. His 740 career regular-season wins are the most with one NHL team. He retired after the 1993-94 season, before returning to coach his 1,500th game on Nov. 3, 2007. Arbour was elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1996.
