Pirates Stay Hot in 4-3 Win Over Rockies
PITTSBURGH (AP) - A resurgent J.A. Happ worked into the sixth inning, Aramis Ramirez hit a three-run homer and the Pittsburgh Pirates held off the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Saturday night. Happ and Ramirez, both acquired near the trade deadline to give the Pirates needed depth, helped Pittsburgh improve to 14-3 in their last 17 games. Mark Melancon gave up a two-run homer to Nick Hundley in the ninth but hung on for his 43rd save. Happ (7-7) won his third straight decision after giving up one run and five hits in 5 2-3 innings. Ramirez sent a breaking ball from Chris Rusin (4-7) into the seats in left field in the first inning for his 13th home run of the season and second since rejoining the Pirates on July 25. Rusin lasted six innings but fell to 1-5 since June 21. Hundley and Ben Paulsen had two hits each for Colorado.

Manuel Excels in Bills' 43-19 Preseason Win Over Steelers
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Bills quarterback EJ Manuel made his case to reclaim the starting job by going 7 of 8 for 170 yards and two touchdowns in a 43-19 preseason win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday. Getting his turn to start in Buffalo's offseason-long three-way quarterback competition, Manuel hit Charles Clay for a 67-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He re-entered the game for two-plus series in the third quarter, and hit Tobias Palmer for a 37-yard touchdown as Buffalo improved to 2-1. For Pittsburgh (1-3), Michael Vick hit Martavis Bryant for a 63-yard completion on his first snap from scrimmage after taking over for starter Ben Roethlisberger in the first quarter. It was Vick's debut with the Steelers, who signed the 35-year-old after backup Bruce Gradkowski sustained a season-ending left hand injury last week. Vick finished 4 of 5 for 116 yards and was sacked once in two series.

Wild Things Win 700th Game
The Washington Wild Things won their 700th regular season game in franchise history with a 7-2 victory over the Evansville Otters on Saturday night. It was the rookies who shined on this night as Matt Fraudin limited Evansville to two runs in 8.1 innings on the mound. Fellow rookie Cody Herald was the offensive catalyst for the team, producing four RBI’s and scoring two more runs in the victory. Evansville starter Trevor Walch was hit around in his second consecutive start, permitting seven runs (six earned) in six innings. The win snaps a six-game losing streak for Washington and a six-game winning streak for Evansville.
