Bucs Turn TriplePlay, Beat Cubs
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Josh Harrison started Pittsburgh's first triple play at home in 21 years and hit a tying two-run double in a six-run fifth inning Sunday that helped the Pirates rally past the Chicago Cubs 7-3. Edinson Volquez (12-7) improved to 4-0 in his last 10 starts for the Pirates, who began the day with a 1 1/2-game lead over Milwaukee for the NL's second wild card. Pittsburgh improved to 14-5 against Chicago this year, winning all six series, and eliminated the Cubs from playoff contention. Chicago has not won the World Series since 1908 and hasn't even reached the postseason since 2008. Chicago led 3-0 and put runners on first and second in the fourth when Matt Szczur grounded to third. Harrison started an around-the-horn 5-4-3 triple play, throwing to second baseman Neil Walker, who relayed to first baseman Andrew Lambo.

Keselowski takes opening Chase race
JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — Brad Keselowski has won the opening race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, a victory that automatically advances him into the second round. Keselowski used a three-wide pass of Kyle Larson and Kevin Harvick to snatch the lead away with 15 laps remaining at Chicagoland Speedway. As Larson and Harvick raced door-to-door, Keselowski drove through the middle to take the lead. A caution with 10 laps remaining set up one final restart, and Keselowski easily pulled away for the win. The Chase this year will eliminate four drivers after every third race, and a win guarantees a driver an automatic berth into the next round. Keselowski, who won last week at Richmond and has a Sprint Cup-leading five wins this season, was the top seed in the Chase.

Ambrose to leave NASCAR
JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — Marcos Ambrose has informed Richard Petty Motorsports he will leave NASCAR at the end of this season and return to his native Australia. The announcement comes amid mounting speculation that Ambrose will join Roger Penske as the team enters prepares to enter Australia's V8 Supercar Series. Penske acknowledged in July he was "looking at the opportunity" to work with Ambrose in Supercars.

Mayweather Tops Maidana
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Floyd Mayweather Jr. refused to allow Marcos Maidana to turn their rematch into a brawl, boxing masterfully to win a 12-round unanimous decision Saturday night in their welterweight title fight. Mayweather remained unbeaten in 47 pro fights, drawing upon his 18 years of experience and frustrating Maidana the entire night. The fight was a marked contrast to their first bout in May, when Maidana roughed Mayweather up in a close fight. Two ringside judges scored it 116-111 for Mayweather, while the third had it 115-112. The Associated Press had it 117-110. The fight was held up momentarily in the eighth round when Mayweather complained that Maidana bit him on the wrist while the two were tied up. Maidana was penalized for tripping Mayweather in the 10th round.

Presidents, Pitt, Penn State, WVU Win on College Gridiron
NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. -- The Presidents racked up nearly 600 yards of total offense in a 56-21 rout of Westminster in non-conference action at Harold Burry Stadium. Ryan Ruffing carried 36 times for 172 yards. The junior running back scored five times, giving him 10 touchdowns in the season's first two weeks. Quarterback Pete Coughlin completed 24-of-35 passes for 281 yards and one touchdown.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Bill Belton scored on a 5-yard run with 1:13 to play and Penn State rallied from a 10-point deficit to post a 13-10 victory over Rutgers on Saturday night, spoiling the Scarlet Knights' Big Ten Conference debut. Christian Hackenberg orchestrated the game-winning, six-play, 80-yard, drive with passes of 53 and 23 yards to Geno Lewis after the Nittany Lions (3-0, 1-0) took over with 3:02 to play. Sam Ficken had kicked field goals of 32 and 25 yards earlier in the half. The Nittany Lions defense intercepted Rutgers quarterback Gary Nova five times. Nova scrambled 14 yards for a touchdown and Kyle Federico added a 32-yard field goal for Rutgers (2-1, 0-1), whose conference debut brought a record 53,774 fans to High Point Solutions Stadium.

MIAMI (AP) — Pittsburgh survived an early scare from host FIU to remain unbeaten with a 42-25 road victory, improving to 3-0 for the first time since 2009. Sophomore James Conner rolled over a normally stingy FIU run defense for 178 yards and three touchdowns on 31 carries. He now has 545 rushing yards, breaking Tony Dorsett's school record for most rushing yards in the first three games of a season in the process. That was set back in 1973 in Dorsett's freshman year. Quarterback Chad Voytik went over 100 yards on the ground and had a 32-yard touchdown run for the Panthers, who host Iowa next week. FIU (1-2) led 16-0 in the first quarter but gave up two touchdowns in the second, leading by just two points at the break. The Golden Panthers fell behind for good after a 3-yard TD run by Conner with 7:15 left in the third quarter.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Clint Trickett passed for 511 yards and four touchdowns, and West Virginia gave away a 22-point lead before Josh Lambert kicked a 47-yard field goal as time expired to give the Mountaineers a 40-37 victory over Maryland on Saturday. West Virginia (2-1) let a 28-6 lead dwindle to 28-27 in the third quarter, then gave away a 10-point advantage in the fourth quarter before Trickett directed a 65-yard drive to set up Lambert's game-winning kick. Trickett went 37-for-49, and his passing yardage was the second-most in West Virginia history behind a 656-yard performance by Geno Smith in 2012. The Mountaineers finished with a whopping 694 yards in offense compared to 447 for Maryland (2-1). West Virginia's Kevin White had 13 catches for 216 yards and Mario Alford caught 11 passes for 131 yards and two scores. A year ago, Maryland beat West Virginia 37-0 while Trickett watched from the sideline.

McIlroy, Horschel Share Lead
ATLANTA (AP) — Rory McIlroy and Billy Horschel have set up a final-day showdown for the $10 million FedEx Cup bonus by tying for the lead after three rounds of the Tour Championship. The top-ranked McIlroy shot a 3-under 67 while Horschel posted a 69 to deadlock at 9-under heading into the final round of the playoff finale. That puts them two shots up on previous FedEx Cup winner Jim Furyk who matched McIlroy's 67. Justin Rose shot a 66 to tie with Jason Day and Rickie Fowler at minus-6.
