The Baltimore Orioles say third baseman Manny Machado could be running again in six to eight weeks after tearing a left knee ligament in Monday's 5-4 loss to Tampa Bay.  The Orioles initially feared Machado had torn his ACL, which would have caused him to miss the start of next season.  But an MRI showed his ACL and MCL are fine.

The St. Louis Cardinals still hold a two-game lead over Pittsburgh in the National League Central, with the Cincinnati Reds three games back following a 4-2 loss to the New York Mets.  Michael Wacha came within one out of a no-hitter as the Cardinals blanked Washington 2-0.  The Pirates hammered the Chicago Cubs 8-2 as Pedro Alvarez doubled twice and had three RBIs.

Authorities say Detroit Lions receiver Nate Burleson broke his arm in a single-car accident early yesterday after he reached over to keep two pizza boxes from falling off the front passenger seat.  Burleson's car hit a center median wall on a highway in suburban Detroit and he was taken to a hospital.  Coach Jim Schwartz stopped short of writing off the rest of Burleson's season, but surgery is scheduled for today.

The Creighton men's soccer team moved up two spots from fifth to third in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll released yesterday, following the Bluejays' 1-0 double-overtime victory over St. John's last weekend.  The victory over the Red Storm marked Creighton's first victory as a member of the BIG EAST as part of the Jays' conference debut.  North Carolina edged out California for the top ranking this week.

Nebraska senior defender Ari Romero was named to CollegeSoccer360.com's Primetime Performers Weekly Honor Roll yesterday, while Jaycie Johnson earned yet another award being named Big Ten Player of the Week by College Sports Madness.

The Wayne State volleyball team suffered their second straight loss last night as Augustana College defeated the eighth ranked Wildcats 3-0 with scores of the match going 25-21, 25-10 and 25-21.  WSC is falls to 9-2 overall and 1-2 in league play while the Vikings improve to 9-2 and 1-2 in the NSIC.
