TODAY'S THOUGHT

Grace is troublesome for control freaks - sinners curved in on themselves, bent on securing their own existence and status.

    BURNSVILLE, Minn. (MSU) - Junior Devan Shumway became the first Minot State cross country runner to ever be named Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Athlete of the Week when he was honored by the conference on Tuesday.

    Shumway earned the honor after a record-setting day at the Jamestown Jimmie Invitational last Friday. Shumway broke the Minot State DII era school record in the 8k when he completed the race in 25:49.9 to finish second overall. His time bettered the school record of 25:56.11 set by Joel Cartwright in 2016.

    Led by Shumway, the Beavers finished third overall in the team standings with 68 points.

    Shumway, who has been the Beavers top finisher in each of the last two meets, will lead Minot State into competition on Oct. 20 at the NSIC Preview.

     MLB-PLAYOFFS

     NEW YORK (AP) - Baseball's biggest rivalry gets the spotlight to itself as the Red Sox try to eliminate the Yankees in Game 4 of their AL Division Series.
 
     New York will be trying to rebound from the most lopsided postseason loss in the franchise's distinguished history - a 16-1 drumming Monday night capped by Brock Holt completing the first-ever postseason cycle. The blowout was so bad, backup catcher Austin Romine became the second position player ever to appear on the mound in the playoffs. He gave up Holt's ninth-inning homer.
 
     Game 4 may be the final appearance with New York for veteran CC Sabathia, who is expected to make his 23rd career postseason start. He's made 17 of those as a Yankee, going 8-3 with a 3.29 ERA during a span that included a 2009 ALCS MVP. The 38-year-old said Monday he plans to play again next season, though it's uncertain if the upcoming free agent will be back in pinstripes.
 
     Rick Porcello will throw for Boston after getting two outs in relief during a Game 1 victory. Porcello has allowed seven runs over 7 1/3 innings in his past two postseason starts, one each in 2016 and '17.

     MLB-RAYS-CASH
 
     ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Rays, who won more games than any American League team that didn't make the playoffs, have rewarded manager Kevin Cash with a contract extension that runs through 2024, plus a club option for 2025.
 
     The 40-year-old Cash had one year remaining on a five-year, $5 million deal he signed when he replaced Joe Maddon after the 2014 season.
 
     The Rays surprisingly won 90 games this year, finishing third in the AL East behind the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, despite trimming payroll last winter and purging the roster again in July to transform themselves into a young team with a promising future.
 
     Cash has led the Rays to a 318-330 record over four seasons.

     MLB-PADRES-STAIRS
 
     SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Padres have fired hitting coach Matt Stairs after one year on the job as the team continued to rank at the bottom of the majors in key offensive stats.
 
     General manager A.J. Preller confirmed the move Tuesday, saying in a text to The Associated Press: "We made the change."
 
     The rebuilding Padres finished last in the NL West at 66-96, five losses worse than 2017.
 
     Stairs' replacement will be the Padres' 10th hitting coach since Petco Park opened in 2004.
 
     He had replaced Alan Zinter, who was fired on Sept. 1, 2017.

     NFL
 
     UNDATED (AP) - The Buffalo Bills have signed quarterback Derek Anderson to add veteran experience and have him serve as a mentor for rookie starter Josh Allen.
 
     The Bills announced the signing Tuesday, a day after Anderson visited the team's facility. He has a 20-27 record over 12 NFL seasons, and spent the past seven serving as Cam Newton's backup in Carolina.
 
     Buffalo lacks veteran depth at quarterback behind Allen and second-year player Nathan Peterman.
 
     Elsewhere in the NFL:
 
     - The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed former Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles to help during Leonard Fournette's absence. The 31-year-old Charles worked out for the team Tuesday morning and signed a one-year contract in the afternoon. The Jaguars lost third-string running back Corey Grant for the season and don't expect to have Fournette back for several more weeks.
 
     - The New York Giants have waived former first-round draft pick Ereck Flowers and signed tackle Brian Mihalik off their practice squad to replace him. The team announced the moves Tuesday, a day after coach Pat Shurmur said Flowers would either be traded or waived within 24 hours. Flowers was the ninth pick overall in the 2015 draft. He never lived up to expectations.

     NHL-PENGUINS-MURRAY
 
     PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Matt Murray is out indefinitely with a concussion.
 
     Coach Mike Sullivan said Murray suffered the concussion during practice Monday and reported potential symptoms immediately afterward. Sullivan did not offer specifics on the nature of the contact that led to the injury.
 
     This is the third time in his NHL career the 24-year-old Murray has been diagnosed with a concussion.
 
     He struggled during the opening week of the season. He allowed six goals in an overtime victory over Washington and then let in five in a loss to Montreal.
 
     Casey DeSmith will get the first chance at replacing Murray.

     COLLEGE BASKETBALL-UCLA-CAMPBELL
 
     LOS ANGELES (AP) - UCLA freshman guard Tyger Campbell has a torn ACL in his left knee and will miss the upcoming season, making him the third player to be sidelined.
 
     The school said Tuesday that Campbell got hurt in practice Sunday.
 
     Freshman forward Shareef O'Neal, the son of Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal, also will sit out the season because of a heart condition he has described as "risky."
 
     Forward Alex Olesinski has a stress fracture in his right foot that will force him to miss two to three months.

     NFL-OBIT-ALEX SPANOS
 
     STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) - Alex Spanos, who used his fortune from construction and real estate to buy the Chargers in 1984, has died. He was 95.
 
     The team announced in 2008 that Spanos was suffering from dementia. He eventually stopped attending games.
 
     The son of Greek immigrants, Spanos was a self-made millionaire. He bought controlling interest in the team for approximately $50 million from Gene Klein in 1984. He eventually bought all but the 3 percent that was held by George Pernicano.
 
     Although Alex Spanos continued to live in Stockton after purchasing the Chargers, his oldest son, Dean, moved to San Diego to help run the team.
 
     It was Dean Spanos who decided to move the Chargers from San Diego, their home of 56 years, to Los Angeles in 2017.
