Three Homers Give Pirates Sweep In Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Ivan Nova threw six sharp innings before leaving early because of a hurting left hamstring and the Pittsburgh Pirates hit three solo homers to rally past the Milwaukee Brewers 3-1 on Sunday for their eighth straight road victory. John Jaso and Gregory Polanco each homered in the sixth off Brewers starter Chase Anderson (7-11) to complete Pittsburgh's first sweep at Miller Park since 2004. Starling Marte added a solo shot in the eighth. Nova (4-0) retired 10 of his final 11 batters after allowing Jonathan Villar's solo homer in the third. He scattered three hits and struck out four before being pinch hit for in the seventh. Tony Watson pitched a clean ninth for his 10th save in 13 opportunities.

Pirates visit Wrigley Field for three against the Cubs starting tonight. Air time 7:40 on WJPA 1450-AM.

Heyward, Gilbert Hoping To Play Season Opener
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Steelers right tackle Marcus Gilbert is dealing with an elbow injury he deemed as significant, while defensive end Cam Heyward has a high right ankle sprain. Both starters vowed Sunday to be ready for the team's regular-season opener in two weeks at Washington. Heyward and Gilbert left Friday's preseason game against New Orleans in the second quarter. Two days later, Gilbert wore a sleeve on his left elbow in the locker room and Heyward had a protective boot on his right foot. Gilbert, who hyperextended his left elbow against the Saints, was also dealing with a shoulder injury to the same arm that forced him to miss time during the preseason. Gilbert said the elbow is something he can play through. Gilbert, the Steelers' second-round pick in 2011, missed four games the previous three seasons. He allowed just one sack last season while shutting down several of the top pass rushers in the league, including Super Bowl MVP Von Miller in the regular season and playoffs. Gilbert said he doesn't have to undergo surgery now, but may need it in the future. He is being evaluated by renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews.

Kaepernick Sits During National Anthem
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Colin Kaepernick says he plans to sit through the national anthem for as long as he feels is appropriate and until he sees significant progress in race relations in America. The 49ers quarterback says he knows he could be cut for this stand, criticized and ostracized but he'll go it all alone if need be. He refused to stand for the "The Star Spangled Banner" before the 49ers' preseason loss to the Packers Thursday. Kaepernick is critical of what he sees as unpunished police brutality and called on accountability from public officials. The biracial Kaepernick says when he was in college at Nevada, police were called one day "because we were the only black people in that neighborhood." Officers entered without knocking and drew guns on him and his teammates and roommates as they were moving their belongings.

Larson Takes Flag In Michigan
BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) - Kyle Larson took the lead on a restart with nine laps to go and went on to win at Michigan for his first Sprint Cup victory. The 24-year old held off Chase Elliott to win by 1.48 seconds. Brad Keselowski was third. Larson's victory snapped a 99-race losing streak for Chip Ganassi Racing. It also secured a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup with two races left in the regular season.

Big Day For Reed
FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Patrick Reed has picked up a double victory. His win in The Barclays was not only his first of the season, but secured a spot for him on the US Ryder Cup team. Reed shot a 1-under 70 to finish 9-under par in the first of the four FedEx Cup playoff tournaments. That was good for a one shot win over Sean O'Hare and Emiliano Grillo. Brandt Snedecker and Zach Johnson also earned Ryder Cup berths with their finishes.

Langer Needs Playoff To Gain Victory
SNOQUALMIE, Wash. (AP) - Bernhard Langer made a three-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to defeat Woody Austin and Kevin Sutherland for the title at the Champions Tour Boeing Classic. Langer was five shots back at the turn, before shooting a 6-under 30 on the back nine to join the playoff at 13-under par. The trio all birdied the par-5 18th hole to end regulation. But only Langer did it again in the playoff to win the tournament for the second time, a day after his 59th birthday.

New York Captures Little League World Series
SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - Ryan Harlost struck out eight to lead Endwell, N.Y. to a 2-1 win over South Korea in the Little League World Series title game. Endwell snapped a five-year championship drought for U.S. teams on Little League's biggest stage and gave New York its first title since 1964.
