CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs are hosting the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 4 of the NL division series. Anthony Rizzo's solo blast in the bottom of the sixth gave the Cubs a 5-4 lead. The Cards are batting in the top of the seventh.

Stephen Piscotty put the Cards ahead with a two-run homer in the top of the first before the Cubs rallied. Pitcher Jason Hammel poked an RBI single in the second and came around to score on a three-run homer by Javier Baez. It remained 4-2 until the sixth, when Tony Cruz hit an RBI double and Brandon Moss singled home the tying run. The rally ended when Cruz was thrown out at the plate on Moss' hit.

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Dodgers will go with Clayton Kershaw against Mets rookie Steven Matz as New York tries to close out the series in four games. Los Angeles needs a huge performance from Kershaw after Brett Anderson and Alex Wood combined to surrender 10 runs over the first five innings of last night's 13-7 loss to the Mets.

New York's bats appear to have awakened after they managed just five runs and 10 hits in the first two games of the series. Yoenis Cespedes (SEHS'-peh-dehs) ripped a three-run homer and Curtis Granderson collected five RBIs with a pair of doubles. Travis d'Arnaud (dahr-NOH') delivered a solo homer and three RBIs after going hitless in Los Angeles.

The two American League Division Series are on hold until tomorrow. The Toronto Blue Jays will host the Texas Rangers in a winner-take-all fifth game, and the Kansas City Royals will entertain the Houston Astros in Game 5 of that series.


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Los Angeles police say a fan was critically injured in a fight outside Dodger Stadium following Friday night's NL division series game between Los Angeles and the New York Mets.

An officer said the victim remained hospitalized today, but few other details were available, including the person's age and gender. Officer Ricardo Hernandez said an argument between fans in the parking lot quickly escalated into violence. It wasn't clear whether those involved were fans of rival teams.

Detectives with the robbery-homicide division were interviewing witnesses and reviewing stadium surveillance footage, according to Hernandez.


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Steve Spurrier is now a former football coach.

The 70-year-old Spurrier officially announced his resignation as head coach at South Carolina, saying it was time to leave. The decision comes after the Gamecocks got off to a 2-4 start that includes an 0-4 mark in the SEC.

It caps a half-century in which he won the 1966 Heisman Trophy with Florida, quarterbacked the first 0-14 team in NFL history, revived a moribund Duke program as a first-time head coach, won a national championship with his alma mater and led the Gamecocks to their greatest successes.

South Carolina posted three straight 11-win seasons under Spurrier after never winning more than 10 before his arrival. He went 11-2 as late as 2013, but the Gamecocks followed that with a 6-6 season that caused Spurrier to ponder retirement last winter.

Spurrier was 86-49 with the Gamecocks. He had his greatest success at his alma mater, going 122-27-1 with a national championship at Florida. Spurrier was 228-89-2 in 319 games as a college head coach.

Spurrier has been replaced on an interim basis by co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Shawn Elliott.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz has confirmed that star defensive end Drew Ott will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his right knee.

Ott is the Hawkeyes' best pass rusher and arguably its best player. He is sixth in the Big Ten with 7.5 tackles for loss and five sacks despite being slowed by an elbow injury earlier this season.
