As it was, Maddon had to have Chapman start the ninth because Pedro Strop didn't have time to get fully warmed up after Rizzo's home run. In Game 2, he kept the Indians hitless into the sixth to send the Cubs back to Chicago with things all tied up.
He slipped in Raheem Sterling, who had the vision to slide a cross over to Gundogan to tap in left-footed at the far post. That goal turned the game on its head, with the home crowd driving Pep Guardiola's men forward in the second period.
Canaan, picked by Houston in the second round of the 2013 draft in which Carter-Williams went No. 11, had 11 points in 14 minutes against Indiana Saturday and 15 points with six assists in 22 minutes against the Nets Monday.

"He's 22 years old, Gold Glove, hitting homers in the World Series". Francona said, "Lonnie went hard after it, as he should, but that's Naquin's ball".
They were willing to take on extra responsibilities, with Green Bay's offense having a productive night in its first game without injured running back Eddie Lacy. The rookie returned from a calf injury that kept him out of the last two games. They started LaDarius Gunter at one cornerback spot and had him shadow Alshon Jeffery for much of the game; Demetri Goodson started at the other cornerback spot.
You wanted him to take the chance earlier. With Group A rivals Paris St Germain beating Basle in Switzerland , a win for the Gunners was enough to see them through with two games to spare.

Something just felt amusing when I got up. Obviously I'm sure he'll bounce back from it, but it's a tough part of the business. "The fact we have a bye week this week, hopefully I can get over it", Flacco said . Ever since then the Jets have been playing a game called, "I told you so", which went in their favor since Fitzpatrick can't seem to able to give the ball to the right team.
Big picture: Ohio State improved to 7-1 and 4-1 in the Big Ten. Surrendering a double-figures lead two weeks in a row might have left the Buckeyes doubting themselves.

The Steelers haven't commented on the reports they've filed an official report with the National Football League and neither have the Dolphins.
