#1 start for the Cubs.Facing Hendricks will presen von mary123 14.11.2019 09:03

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Purdue interim coach Gerad Parker pretty much knew his fate long before Saturdays season finale.He and the other Boilermakers coaches didnt expect to return to West Lafayette in 2017.That didnt make this Old Oaken Bucket game any less important or the latest loss, 26-24 to Indiana, any easier to accept.We aimed big, we moved fast and we got better, the emotional Parker said after losing for the sixth straight week since replacing the fired Darrell Hazell. The ultimate stat of getting better is winning and I know that. Nobody knows that more than me. But Ill tell you this, this football team got better in the last six weeks. I believe that with every fiber of my body.Purdue (3-9, 1-8 Big Ten) certainly played better against its biggest rival than it did the previous six weeks -- all losses, all by at least 13 points.In the previous five games, the Boilermakers had been outscored 128-27 in the second half.This time, they erased a 17-16 deficit with a 31-yard TD pass from David Blough to DeAngelo Yancey early in the third quarter. The 2-point conversion attempt failed, but the Boilermakers kept the lead until Indianas Devine Redding powered in from 1 yard out with 4:59 left to make it 26-22.Purdues last real chance fizzled when Blough was picked off in the end zone on fourth-and-14 from the Hoosiers 27-yard line with 1:06 to go.We didnt get the wins that we wanted, but its like Coach Parker said, we gritted our teeth, we came in ready to work, we didnt make any excuses, senior defensive lineman Jake Replogle said. I cant say enough for what Coach Parkers done. The motivation that hes brought day in and day out. Im proud of what weve done in the past six weeks.It may not look good on paper.Purdue finished the season with a seven-game losing streak and could not thwart the Hoosiers from hoisting the prized trophy for a fourth consecutive year. The only other time Indiana won four straight in the series came from 1944-47.Inside the locker room and across the field, though, there were noticeable changes.I was very impressed with his leadership skills, Indiana coach Kevin Wilson said. I had a lot of respect for him before they arrived. Hes done a great job and were very, very fortunate and very, very happy to win that game.While the future of the Boilermakers program remains uncertain, there has been plenty of speculation about the next coach, much of it focusing on Western Michigan coach P.J. Fleck.But Purdues players, coaches and even Parker believed they proved something in these last six weeks.I said were going to have fun, were going to run around, were going to make it about the players, Parker said. When I lay my head down tonight and we walk off and get a chance to reflect, I would hope those guys say thats what we did.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 .

Cheap Vapormax 95 . -- There were a lot of firsts for the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. ST. LOUIS -- For the first time since 2008, the Cubs can clinch the NL Central division title this week.The Cardinals know it is going to happen -- they just dont want them to do it during the series in St. Louis.To prevent that from happening, all the Cardinals have to do is win one of three games in the series that begins Monday night. A sweep by the Cubs would have them spraying champagne at Busch Stadium on Wednesday.The Cubs arrive in town with a magic number of five after the Cardinals 2-1 loss to the Brewers on Sunday and their 9-5 win Sunday night in Houston.You never want anyone celebrating on your home field, even if they are not division rivals or anything, said Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn, who has not pitched this year after undergoing Tommy John surgery. You dont want anybody to clinch here. Thats definitely something you dont want to see.In recent years, the Cardinals have been the ones doing the celebrating. They have been to the postseason five consecutive years, and as the season winds down, know they will have to qualify as a wild-card team if they are going to extend that streak to six years.The loss to the Brewers, which came on a ninth-inning home run by Ryan Braun off Kevin Siegrist, dropped the Cardinals a half game out of the second wild-card spot because of the Mets 10-3 win over the Braves.Mike Leake will get the starting assignment for Monday nights game, which begins a stretch that will see the CCardinals play the Cubs and the Giants, who currently are in the first wild-card spot, in 10 of their next 13 games.ddddddddddddKyle Hendricks, who leads the NL with a 2.07 ERA, will start for the Cubs.Facing Hendricks will present the newest challenge for the Cardinals, who did not hit a home run on Saturday or Sunday, the first time they have gone two consecutive games without hitting a homer since Aug. 7-8. They lead the NL with 204 homers.Weve got to figure out how to score more runs, said manager Mike Matheny. We squared up two balls that almost all year have been gone. The ball wasnt jumping.Playing, and winning, at home has been a problem for the Cardinals this season. Their loss Sunday was the 39th at home, the most since they moved into the current Busch Stadium in 2006. They have 10 games left at home in the regular season.Last year, it was the Cardinals who won the division title, then saw their season end when they lost to the wild-card Cubs in the Division Series. The Cubs just want to win the division, then worry about the playoffs later.Were probably anxious to clinch as soon as possible, catcher Miguel Montero told the Chicago Sun-Times. That gives you the extra excitement to just try to do too much, to try to win games and get the lead even bigger, and clinch, on this road trip. ' ' '
