CHICAGO (AP) — Miguel Montero snapped an eighth-inning tie with the third pinch-hit grand slam in postseason history, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-4 in their NL Championship Series opener Saturday night. The Cubs rebounded quickly from a shaky performance by their bullpen at Wrigley Field.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — There remain enough doubters about the Cowboys that this is another prove-it game. The way Wisconsin native Tony Romo's backup Dak Prescott is throwing it and Ezekiel Elliott is running it, Dallas is proving you can win behind rookies. Still, the Packers hold opponents to 42.8 yards rushing per game. If the Cowboys, 4-11 at the Packers, come close to their 155.2 yards per game on the ground, it will be impressive.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — J.T. Barrett threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to leaping receiver Noah Brown in overtime, and number 2 Ohio State finished off 8th ranked Wisconsin with a sack on fourth-and-goal from the 4 for a 30-23 win Saturday night. Corey Clement ran for 164 yards on 25 carries for Wisconsin.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Heather Bergsma turned in the fastest times in the women's 500 meters and 1,500 meters at the U.S. speedskating team's long track World Cup qualifier. Bergsma had the best 500 time for the second straight day Saturday, at 39.17 seconds. She was followed by Kelly Gunther, Jerica Tandiman and Sugar Todd in Milwaukee.
