Hobart and William Smith Colleges

Four different Statesmen scored as the Hobart College soccer team downed Utica 4-0 in a non-conference game played this afternoon on Cozzens Field. First-year Zach Poretz and junior Marco Ronning led the Statesmen each earning a goal and an assist in the victory.

Creating a more efficient way to give and receive help. That was the goal of Hobart College junior Tyler Terens when he began working with his friend, former Lehigh University baseball player, Zach Gray, to launch  STRIVR, an online community that makes it easy to give and receive help. 

The 15th ranked William Smith College field hockey team used four second half goals to cruise past Nazareth 5-0. First-Year Hannah Wood led the way for the Herons notching her first career hat trick in the process.

Auburn Doubledays

Dale Carey went 2-for-4 and made a game-saving diving catch in centerfield, and relievers Connor Bach and Tyler Mapes picked up starter James Bourque as the Doubledays topped the Batavia Muckdogs 4-3 in the season finale at Falcon Park.
Chase McDowell (1-3) and the Doubledays defense combined to allow six runs in the penultimate inning of their penultimate game, and Auburn dropped a heartbreaker 7-6 to Batavia at Dwyer Stadium.
Diomedes Eusebio rocketed two home runs and finished with 6 RBI, Jeff Gardner and Bryan Mejia added bombs of their own, and the Doubledays outslugged the Mahoning Valley Scrappers 12-7 in Eastwood Field's final game of the 2014 season.
The Washington Nationals today announced the signing of a two-year Player Development Contract extension (which begins in 2015) with the Auburn Doubledays of the short-season Class A New York-Penn League through the 2016 season.
The Jammers cranked out two runs in a key seventh inning, and the Doubledays fell 4-1 to snap a three-game winning streak in front of 2,251 fans at Falcon Park.
The Auburn Doubledays stormed to walk-off wins in both ends of a doubleheader, taking the first 5-4 in nine innings, while concluding the night by winning the second 2-1 in a regulation seven frames over Jamestown.

NY Yankees

Neither team has been mathematically eliminated, but the playoff chances of the Yankees and the Blue Jays are dwindling by the day. After a win over Toronto on Thursday, the Yankees pulled within five games of the A's for the second American League Wild Card spot, while the Blue Jays remained six games back. Toronto's Mark Buehrle faces New York's Hiroki Kuroda in the second game of the four-game series Friday night.
Chase Headley hit a grounder that rolled under first baseman Adam Lind's glove in the bottom of the ninth inning, scoring Antoan Richardson from third base to give the Yankees a 3-2 walk-off victory over the Blue Jays on Thursday night at Yankee Stadium.
Derek Jeter's final homestand will be met with many emotional goodbyes from fans over the next week. But before he even made it to the ballpark Thursday, a Gatorade commercial anticipating and celebrating the Yankees captain's farewell already had made its way onto the Internet. Jeter then thanked the fans with his bat in a way he hadn't the entire season, belting his first homer at Yankee Stadium in the sixth inning.
Carlos Beltran wasn't in the Yankees' clubhouse and didn't take batting practice with the team before Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, but manager Joe Girardi said he was available to play off the bench.
It had been a good seventh inning, Brandon McCarthy thought as he returned to the visiting dugout on Wednesday. It wasn't until later that he learned it had actually been an immaculate one.
After recording two strikeouts in his scoreless eighth inning of Wednesday's 3-2 victory over the Rays at Tropicana Field, Dellin Betances owns the Yankees' single-season strikeout mark for relievers, breaking Mariano Rivera's 1996 record of 130.
The Yankees have offered their condolences to Carlos Beltran and his wife, Jessica, who announced on Wednesday evening that a miscarriage has resulted in the loss of their first son.
The Rays challenged a call in the eighth inning Wednesday night and won before falling to the Yankees, 3-2, in the series finale at Tropicana Field.
There was no spillover from the previous evening's incidents, just clean ball, and Brandon McCarthy wrapped up seven strong frames with an immaculate inning as the Yankees defeated Tampa Bay, 3-2, snapping a three-game losing streak. They remained six games back in the American League Wild Card race.
The Rays have been there for Derek Jeter's moments, of course. There've been plenty over his 20-year MLB career -- like when he hammered a home run off Tampa Bay ace David Price for his 3,000th hit. But Jeter's been there for the Rays' moments, too.
Rays manager Joe Maddon loves to go into the dictionary to talk about baseball, but Wednesday afternoon at Tropicana Field, Yankees third baseman Chase Headley wasn't happy about the words Maddon came up with.
One day after telling Mark Teixeira to "come see me when you're ready to return," Joe Girardi heard a knock on the visiting manager's door at Tropicana Field. The response was quicker than initial impressions might have suggested.
Things escalated quickly at Tropicana Field on Tuesday, as the benches cleared and three Yankees were ejected in the late innings of the Rays' 6-1 win. Yankees manager Joe Girardi was tossed in the top of the eighth, and his replacement -- bench coach Tony Pena -- as well as right-handed reliever David Phelps were ejected a half-inning later, after Phelps sent a fastball under Kevin Kiermaier's chin and to the backstop -- a play that emptied both dugouts.
Making his Rays debut against the Yankees at Tropicana Field in Tuesday night's 6-1 Tampa Bay win, Nick Franklin took third base on a wild pitch from Michael Pineda with one out in the sixth inning, and his baserunning play ended up turning into a run -- but only after a replay review. Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon successfully challenged what was originally ruled an out, setting up Franklin's dash home on the next play.
Manager Joe Girardi, pitcher David Phelps and bench coach Tony Pena were all ejected as the Yankees reached their boiling point on the way to a fifth loss in six games, dropping a 6-1 decision to the Rays at Tropicana Field on Tuesday night.
CC Sabathia has been announced as the Yankees' nominee for this year's Roberto Clemente Award, presented by Chevrolet. The award recognizes a Major League player who best represents the game of baseball through positive contributions on and off the field, including sportsmanship and community involvement.
Derek Jeter has been a formidable rival for many teams around the league over the years, but there is a different sense of the retiring Yankees captain around these parts. To the Rays, he is also a neighbor.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi says right-hander Masahiro Tanaka is tentatively scheduled to start on Sunday against the Blue Jays.
About three hours before the scheduled first pitch, Derek Jeter walks into the clubhouse, a coffee cup nestled in his right hand. The Yankees captain approaches the laptop computer set up for ticket requests, punches in a few names, slings a pair of white sanitary socks over his shoulder and begins to prepare for the nine innings ahead. While he does, Jeter's java is a constant companion.
Martin Prado, a multi-skilled veteran infielder and outfielder, underwent an emergency appendectomy on Tuesday and likely won't have enough time to recover and return to the field for the Yankees.
Yankees third baseman Chase Headley made a healthy return to the lineup Monday, but his evening was abbreviated by a verbal spat with home-plate umpire Marty Foster, who ejected him for arguing balls and strikes in the seventh inning of New York's 1-0 loss to the Rays at Tropicana Field.
Yankees reliever Dellin Betances recorded two strikeouts in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Orioles, giving him 130 in 86 2/3 innings. That ties Rivera's franchise record for a reliever, though Rivera -- then the setup man for closer John Wetteland -- needed 107 2/3 innings to reach that total. "For me, to just be mentioned in any sentence, any breath with Mariano Rivera -- I'm just honored," Betances said.
When the season ends, Derek Jeter will hang up his pinstripes and begin life as a retired baseball player in Tampa, Fla., He's already got a cozy little place set up over on Davis Islands -- that 30,875-square-foot mansion on Hillsborough Bay a few minutes south of downtown, the one often referred to around these parts as "St. Jetersburg."
The Rays' Ben Zobrist connected for a game-winning single off Yankees reliever Shawn Kelley in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the Rays to a 1-0 victory Monday night at Tropicana Field. New York absorbed its fourth loss in five games, dropping six games back in the race for the second American League Wild Card.
Carlos Beltran returned to the Yankees' lineup Monday night, and though it has been a difficult first season with the club, the veteran slugger is trying to finish strong before having surgery on his ailing right elbow.
The Orioles paid tribute to Derek Jeter's career in a pregame ceremony on Sunday evening at Camden Yards, and Jeter reflected on competing against the O's and his time playing for Buck Showalter in New York.
The cluster migraines that have kept Francisco Cervelli out of action for nearly two weeks have subsided, but the Yankees' catcher is not certain when he will be permitted to return to the lineup.
Facing the likelihood of their second dark October in as many years, these are desperate times for the Yankees, and so the bullpen phone rang demanding the services of David Robertson. The gamble -- having Robertson on the mound for a third straight game -- did not pay off, resulting in a blown save and a 3-2 Orioles victory on Sunday at Camden Yards.

NY Mets

Dillon Gee went into his start Wednesday night, ultimately a 4-3 Mets loss to the Marlins, with high hopes. He entered trending upward after a mostly poor second half, and another step in the right direction could prove significant as Gee prepares to settle in for the winter. Like his 2014 season, though, Gee's outing seemed two-sided. The right-hander limited early trouble before working quickly in the later innings, ultimately yielding four runs in 6 2/3 innings.
The iON videos gives fans a glimpse into the action from a point of view not typically available on regular broadcasts -- like playing catch in the outfield grass, catching a home run or throwing batting practice. The Mets installment of the series depicts a game at Citi Field.
Tests taken Wednesday on Juan Lagares' right arm revealed a sprained elbow, which could end his season. The Mets plan to reevaluate Lagares this weekend, at which point they will determine his status for the final week of the season. With just nine games remaining after Thursday's contest against the Marlins, time is running out for Lagares to make an impact, though the Mets are still very much leaving the door open for him to return.
Despite a come-from-behind victory against the Nationals on Wednesday night, the possibility of postseason play has faded steadily for the Braves in recent days, as they are only 4-11 in September. Atlanta watched Washington clinch the National League East at Turner Field on Tuesday night, and the club entered Thursday sitting 5 1/2 games out of the NL's second Wild Card spot, with only 10 games left to play.
David Wright is once again the Mets' nominee for the annual Roberto Clemente Award, Major League Baseball's highest off-the-field honor. MLB and Chevrolet jointly announced all 30 nominees on Tuesday, one for each team.
Wilmer Flores' two-homer, six-RBI performance on Tuesday lifted the Mets to a 9-1 win over the Marlins at Citi Field, moving him that much closer to the Mets' everyday shortstop job in 2015.
Juan Lagares exited the Mets' 9-1 win over the Marlins on Tuesday in the top of the fifth inning with what the team announced as a hyperextended right elbow. Kirk Nieuwenhuis entered the game, playing center and batting leadoff.
Despite an altered logo appearing on the Mets' official Twitter and Facebook pages earlier this week, the team has not changed -- and has no plans to change -- a logo that has gone largely unaltered over the past 52 years.
Commissioner Bud Selig expressed support for Mets chairman Fred Wilpon and COO Jeff Wilpon on multiple matters Tuesday, including the team's payroll.
The Mets are reportedly considering moving in their outfield fences for next season. But that move would have consequences both offensively and defensively.
