Chris Evert hosts a "who's who" of TV and Tennis

By John Evenson


Delray Beach is known for being a hot spot for tennis, but on Saturday it was a who's who of tennis. Tennis legend Chris Evert invited some of her closest friends, both professional tennis players and television stars, t the Delray Tennis Center for the 24th annual Chris Evert/Raymond James Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic.


"There's so much pressure to play in front of people when you're not a professional athlete," says Elizabeth Shue, star of the CBS show CSI, "so I like trying to see if I can try to overcome that."


The weekend of tennis highlighted by a Charity Gala helps raise money for Evert's charity to help prevent drug abuse and neglect. Since 1989 the event has raised more than $20.6 million.


Other celebrities who took part include comedian Jon Lovitz and Scandal star Scott Foley.

WORLD SERIES

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The Kansas City Royals' bullpen had been brilliant this postseason, recording a 1.66 ERA and a .161 batting average heading into Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday in San Francisco. The Giants teed off on the Royals' relievers and evened the series at two games apiece by scoring nine runs over their last four at-bats to earn an 11-4 victory against Kansas City.

The Giants turned an early 4-1 deficit into a 4-4 tie before Pablo Sandoval singled home a pair to spark a three-run sixth. Joe Panik added a two-run double while the Giants scored four times in the seventh to go ahead 11-4.

Hunter Pence was 3-for-5 with three RBIs and two runs scored. Gregor Blanco was productive from the leadoff slot, collecting two hits and scoring three times.

Neither starting pitcher worked past the fifth inning. Royals hurler Jason Vargas was reached for three runs and six hits in four-plus innings. Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong was lifted in the third, charged with four runs and seven hits in 2 2/3 innings.

Yusmeiro Petit (yoos-MEHR'-oh peh-TEE') tossed three shutout innings to pick up the victory. Petit has allowed no runs and just three hits while striking out 13 over 12 innings in the postseason.

Loser Brandon Finnegan was rocked for five runs and five hits in just one inning of relief.

Omar Infante (ihn-FAHN'-tay) poked a two-run single and Eric Hosmer (HAHZ'-mur) had three hits and an RBI for the Royals.

Game 5 is Sunday in San Francisco, with Scott Shields going against Madison Bumgarner in a rematch of Game 1 starters.

T25-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- And then there were three.

No. 3 Mississippi has fallen from the unbeaten ranks with a 10-7 loss at LSU. Ole Miss was lining up for a potential tying field goal from 42 yards, but was called for delay of game just before Bo Wallace's pass was intercepted by Ronald Martin with two seconds left.

Leonard Fournette ran for 113 yards, and the Tigers finished with 264 yards rushing against defense that came in allowing 97.1 per game. Anthony Jennings' short touchdown pass to tight end Logan Stokes gave LSU the lead late in the fourth quarter.

The outcome leaves Mississippi State, Florida State and Marshall as the only unbeaten teams in the FBS.

Mississippi State was a winner in its first game since climbing to the top of The Associated Press college football poll two weeks ago.

Dak Prescott accounted for three touchdowns and Josh Robinson rushed for two TDs to lead the Bulldogs' offense in a 45-31 win against Kentucky. Prescott ran for TDs of 2 and 11 yards, and hit Brandon Hill for an 8-yard TD.

Robinson's 73-yard touchdown run early in the fourth gave Mississippi State a 38-24 lead.

In other top-25 action:

-- Trevone Boykin threw a school-record seven touchdown passes and 10th-ranked TCU showcased a new fast-paced offense by scoring the most points in its history in an 82-27 rout of Texas Tech.

-- No 11 Kansas State blanked Texas 23-0 as Matthew McCrane kicked three field goals and DeMarcus Robinson and Charles Jones each ran for a touchdown. Jake Waters threw for 224 yards, and Tyler Lockett had eight catches for 103 yards for the 6-1 Wildcats.

-- Devon Johnson rushed for a school-record 272 yards and four touchdowns to lead No. 23 Marshall past Florida Atlantic 35-16. Johnson had touchdown runs of 58, 62, 66 and 7 yards for the Thundering Herd, who overcame their first halftime deficit of the season to remain one of three unbeaten teams remaining in the FBS.

-- UCLA blew a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter before quarterback Brett Hundley scored on an 8-yard touchdown run in double overtime to give the 25th-ranked Bruins a 40-37 victory over Colorado. Hundley rushed for 110 yards and also threw for 200 yards and one TD.
