AMERICAN LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES (best-of-seven)
Cleveland 4, Toronto 2  (Cleveland leads series 3-0)

TORONTO – The Cleveland Indians have a three-games-to-none lead in the AL Championship Series after their bullpen tossed 8 1/3 innings to lead a 4-2 victory at Toronto. The Indians went through six relievers once starter Trevor Bauer had to leave the game due to a cut on the pinkie finger of his pitching hand. Jason Kipnis broke a 2-2 tie with a solo homer in the sixth after Mike Napoli supplied a solo shot and an RBI double in his first two at-bats.

GLENDALE, Ariz. – David Johnson rushed for 111 yards and three touchdowns as the Arizona Cardinals silenced the visiting New York Jets, 28-3. Carson Palmer returned after missing one game with a concussion, but he left with a strained hamstring in the fourth quarter after throwing for 213 yards and a TD. The 1-5 Jets gained just 230 total yards and finished without quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was benched in favor of Geno Smith after throwing an interception late in the third quarter.

L.A. Dodgers 6, Chicago Cubs 0  (L.A. Dodgers lead series, 2-1)

TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays have avoided a four-game sweep in the A-L Championship Series by beating the Cleveland Indians, 5-1. Third baseman Josh Donaldson opened the scoring with a third-inning, solo homer and made a diving stop that likely saved a run in the fifth. Edwin Encarnacion added a two-run single to back Aaron Sanchez, who limited the Indians to a run and two hits over six innings.

LOS ANGELES – Rich Hill worked six innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers homered twice in a 6-0 rout of the Chicago Cubs in Game 3 of the NL Championship Series. Hill gave up just two hits as the Dodgers took a two-games-to-one lead in the series. Yasmani Grandal and Justin Turner homered off Jake Arrieta, who surrendered four runs over five-plus innings.

TORONTO — The Cleveland Indians are American League champions for the first time since 1997 following a 3-0 shutout of Toronto in Game 5 of the A-L-C-S. Rookie Ryan Merritt allowed just two hits and no walks over 4 1/3 innings before the Cleveland bullpen completed the team’s second shutout of the series. Coco Crisp and Carlos Santana hit solo homers, and Francisco Lindor was 3-for-4 with a run scored.

LOS ANGELES – Addison Russell slammed a two-run homer and Anthony Rizzo added a solo shot and three RBIs as the Chicago Cubs hammered the Dodgers 10-2 in Los Angeles to tie the NL Championship Series at two games apiece. The Cubs put together a four-run fourth and a five-run sixth after failing to score in the previous two games. Russell and Rizzo each delivered three of Chicago’s 13 hits.

LOS ANGELES – The Chicago Cubs hammered the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-4 last night to take a three-games-to-two lead in the NL Championship Series. Addison Russell snapped a 1-1 tie with a two-run homer in the sixth, two innings before Javier Baez delivered a three-run double.

FRIDAY RESULTS – October 21

(high school football)

LE MARS — Gabe Toki ran for 175 yards and three touchdowns and Gabe Eckstaine added 280 yards passing and threw for three touchdowns to lead Le Mars to a 46-23 Class 3A District 1 victory over Humboldt Friday night at Jim Lorenzen Field to close out the 2016 season for both schools.  Toki scored on runs of 2, 1 and 60 yards while Eckstaine connected on a pair of scoring strikes to Tyson Weiler from 1 and 15 yards away and then hit Collin Nemmers with a 22-yard scoring strike late in the third quarter.  Tron Hamilton completed the Le Mars scoring with an 11-yard TD-run with 3:43 to play in the game.  District passing leader Drew Thomas threw a pair of TD-passes for Humboldt and finished 18-for-37 for 275 yards and two interceptions.  Eckstaine was 15-of-28 passing and threw one interception.  Collin Nemmers was Eckstaine’s favorite target, catching seven passes for 109 yards.  The two teams combined for 909 yards of offense with Le Mars finishing with a season best 228 yards rushing and 280 yards through the air for 508 yards of total offense.  The Bulldogs close the 2016 season on a three-game winning streak and finished at 6-and-3 with a 4-and-3 district record.  17 seniors closed out their careers for Le Mars Friday night.

SLOAN — Cole Wiltgen drilled a six-yard TD-pass to Elijah Freking with 6:22 to play and Bryan Nohava’s third extra point kick of the night allowed Gehlen Catholic to rally past Westwood 21-20 Friday night in Sloan in a Class A District 1 regular season finale’ for both schools.  The upset loss ended the Rebels playoff hopes for 2016.  Westwood scored on two of their first three possessions of the night on a 36-yard run by Braden Dean and a 17-yard gallop by Drew Anderson for a 12-0 lead in the first quarter.  Gehlen scored with 30 seconds to play in the first half on a three-yard run by Eli Ellensohn to trim the Rebel’s lead to 12-7.  The Jays went ahead 14-12 in the third quarter on Eli Ellensohn’s 39 yard run.  Westwood stopped a Gehlen scoring threat on a Sean Westergaard interception at the one yard line early in the fourth quarter and the Rebels drove 99 yards for the go-ahead touchdown on Kody Berg’s one-yard quarterback sneak and two-point conversion run with 8:23 to play in the game for a 20-14 advantage.  The Jays needed just four plays after the kick-off to answer, using a hook-and-ladder play to pick of 51 of the 74 yards on the drive.  Cole Wiltgen passed to Eric Langel who then pitched the ball to Eli Ellensohn who raced down the Gehlen sideline to the six yard line.  Wiltgen threw the game-winning score to Freking on the next play.  The last Rebel hope was dashed when defensive end Caden Kneip knocked down a lateral attempt and fell on the loose ball for a fumble recovery.  Gehlen was able to run out the rest of the clock after that.  Eli Ellensohn finished with 80 yards on 14 carries to lead Gehlen’s rushing attack while Cole Wiltgen was 10-of-17 passing for 184 yards with two interceptions.  Alec Langel and Elijah Freking each had four pass catches.  District rushing leader Drew Anderson ran for 167 yards for Westwood on 22 carries and scored his 18th touchdown of the season.  The victory ends Gehlen’s season at 5-and-4 and 4-and-3 in the district.  It’s the first winning season for the Jays since 2011.  Cooper Davis is the lone senior on the Jays roster this season.  Eleven juniors return next year as seniors.

SATURDAY RESULTS – October 22

(college football)

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Corey Clement ran for 134 yards and a touchdown and 10th-ranked Wisconsin used a stout defense to beat Iowa 17-9 on Saturday to snap a two-game skid.  Backup Bart Houston threw a touchdown pass for Wisconsin, and Clement’s 1-yard TD run put the Badgers ahead 14-6 midway through the third quarter.  But Wisconsin was carried by its defense. The Badgers allowed just 236 yards on 60 plays and held the Hawkeyes (5-3, 3-2) without a touchdown for the first time all season — just a week after Iowa scored 49 points against Purdue.  C.J. Beathard had 153 yards passing for Iowa, which lost its third straight at home.

LINCOLN, Neb. — Tommy Armstrong Jr. accounted for 303 yards of total offense and two touchdowns, and No. 8 Nebraska came back from a four-point halftime deficit to defeat Purdue 27-14 on Saturday.  The Cornhuskers (7-0, 4-0 Big Ten) probably didn’t convince the skeptics who say they aren’t worthy of a top-10 ranking, but they’ll head to No. 10 Wisconsin next week with their best record since 2001.  Armstrong was 17 for 31 for 252 yards and ran 10 times for 51. Terrell Newby had 82 yards on 22 carries.

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — Eli Dunne threw for 418 yards and two touchdowns in his debut as a starter as Northern Iowa dominated Missouri State 61-7 on Saturday.  Dunne, a sophomore, completed 25 of 33 attempts with no interceptions. Northern Iowa has not had anyone throw for 400-plus yards since Pat Grace threw for 445 against South Dakota in 2009. Dunne threw for 308 yards and one score in the first half.  U-N-I (3-4, 2-2 Missouri Valley Conference), which had lost its last two games by a total of seven points, took control early.  UNI had 556 total yards while limiting Missouri State to 189.

VERMILLION, S.D. — Backup quarterback Austin Simmons threw for two touchdowns as South Dakota edged Illinois State 27-24 on Saturday.  Simmons, a redshirt freshman filling in for injured starter Chris Streveler, had 205 yards on 13-of-30 passing for the Coyotes (4-3, 3-1 Missouri Valley). Michael Frederick ran for a score and Miles Bergner kicked a pair of field goals.  Trevor Bouma led the Coyotes in rushing with 16 carries for 55 yards and the former Gehlen Jay caught one pass for eight yards.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Jonathan Allen returned a Keith Ford fumble 29 yards in the third quarter of top-ranked Alabama’s 33-14 win over the Aggies. It was 20-14 when Allen extended Alabama’s streak to 10 games with a score on defense or special teams. Jalen Hurts passed for 166 yards and rushed for 93 more, throwing for a pair of touchdowns while getting intercepted twice.

UNDATED — Penn State pulled off the biggest upset from Saturday’s college football schedule by scoring 17 straight points in the fourth quarter of a 24-21 triumph over second-ranked Ohio State. Grant Haley returned a blocked field goal 60 yards for a touchdown with 4:27 remaining to put the Nittany Lions ahead. The Buckeyes carried a 21-7 lead into the final period and had won 20 straight road games before falling to 5-1 this season.

DALLAS — SMU has beaten a ranked team for the first time in five years by dealing Houston its second straight loss since a 5-0 start. Ben Hicks threw for three touchdowns and ran for another score as the Mustangs stunned the 11th-ranked Cougars, 38-16. Hicks was 16 of 31 for 228 yards, including a 28-yard touchdown to a wide-open James Proche for a 28-7 lead in the final seconds of the first half.

Chicago Cubs 5, L.A. Dodgers 0  (Chicago Cubs win series, 4-2)

CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs have won their first National League pennant since 1945 by blanking the Dodgers, 5-0 at Wrigley Field. Kyle Kendrick and Aroldis Chapman combined to face the minimum 27 batters in a two-hit shutout that helped the Cubs get within four victories of their first championship since 1908. Dexter Fowler scored a run and singled home another before Willson Contreras and Anthony Rizzo hit solo homers.  The World Series opens Tuesday in Cleveland.
