Cleveland Indians blank Chicago Cubs, ruin Game 3 Wrigley homecoming - SweetSpot- ESPN

CHICAGO -- Not even the wind can defeat great pitching, not even at Wrigley Field. Starter Josh Tomlin and three relievers combined to shut out the Chicago Cubs 1-0 as the Cleveland Indians grabbed a 2-1 lead in the World Series with their fifth shutout in 11 postseason games and their second in the World Series.

Pinch hitter Coco Crisp broke up a scoreless tie with an RBI single in the seventh. Despite a stiff wind blowing out to left-center, the pitchers for both sides controlled the game from start to finish on an unusually warm late October evening in Chicago.

Trump reinvigorated by FBI Clinton probe -

Cedar Rapids, Iowa (CNN) The FBI's decision to review new emails related to Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server is reinvigorating Donald Trump's faith in the US government and political system -- and in his own campaign.

"What happened today, starting with the FBI, maybe the system will become a little less rigged. Beautiful," the Republican nominee, who has repeatedly questioned what he deems a "rigged system" against him, said Friday night. It was the third and final rally of a day he argued has breathed new life into his struggling campaign.
He argued his campaign is "really moving" in light of what he termed a "disaster" for Clinton's campaign and then the billionaire showman even capped off the outdoors rally on a riverbank here with a flashy fireworks display.

Chicago Cubs' Kyle Schwarber will not be in lineup for Game 3 -

World Series hero Kyle Schwarber won't be in Chicago's starting lineup when the Cubs host the Cleveland Indians in Game 3 on Friday.

Doctors determined that Schwarber's surgically repaired left knee isn't yet ready for outfield duty, so the slugger, who is 3-for-7 with two walks, will be limited to pinch-hitting duty in the three games slated for Chicago's Wrigley Field.

The series is tied at one game apiece.

Schwarber was surprisingly cleared to play in the World Series six-plus months after major knee injury. He served as the designated hitter in the two games in Cleveland and lobbied to play in the field in Chicago.

Cubs president Theo Epstein said the team denied Schwarber's request because it wasn't in his best long-term interests.

Schwarber said he was disappointed but understands the decision.


Old vs. New: Bill Snyder, K-State visit Iowa State

AMES, Iowa (AP) -- The Big 12's oldest coach is about to meet the youngest.

Kansas State's Bill Snyder, 78, became just the seventh coach in FBS history to coach at least 300 games at one school earlier this season - and a win Saturday at Iowa State (1-6, 0-4) would give him 198 career victories, good for 25th all time.

Iowa State's Matt Campbell, at 36 the youngest Power Five coach in the country, just finished his seventh game with the Cyclones.

Campbell has only come out on top once, and the matchup against the Wildcats (4-3, 2-2) is one of the few games left that Iowa State has a reasonable chance of winning.

''I don't care what profession you're in, especially in the world of college football. It's hard to sustain success, and he's had this unique ability to do it,'' Campbell said of Snyder. ''It's a great matchup for our team (in terms of), where are we in our own culture? Because, to me, it says a lot each other's culture right now.''

Despite its dismal record, Iowa State has led at halftime in three of its four Big 12 games and is coming off a bye.


John Fox denies report that he's done with Jay Cutler after the season -

Good news: Jay Cutler will be under center for the Bears on Monday night against the Vikings after missing the previous six weeks with a thumb injury.

Bad news: Cutler's days in Chicago once again appear numbered.

Coming off one of the best seasons of his career -- thanks in large part to offensive coordinator Adam Gase, who is now the Dolphins coach -- Cutler completed just 61 percent of his passes with a touchdown and two interceptions in the first two games of 2016. Exacerbating matters: Journeyman quarterback Brian Hoyer's stat-stuffing performance in Cutler's absence.

Mercifully, we've been spared the Cutler-Hoyer quarterback controversy -- Hoyer suffered a broken arm and is expected to be sidelined 6-8 weeks -- but it doesn't sound like coach John Fox has much confidence in Cutler now that he's healthy.


Tennessee Titans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars: RECAP, score, stats (10/27/16), NFL Week 8 |

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — There's nothing like a visit from the Jacksonville Jaguars to make the Tennessee Titans remember how to protect their home field.

Marcus Mariota threw for 270 yards and two touchdowns to end his home struggles and the Titans had their highest point total of the season in a 36-22 victory over the Jaguars on Thursday night.

Since the start of the 2014 season, the Titans are 3-0 at home against the Jaguars and 1-17 against everybody else. The Titans are 3-8 in home games started by Mariota, a second-year pro out of Oregon.
