BALTIMORE (AP) Buck Showalter did a masterful job of guiding the Baltimore Orioles to the AL East crown, and now he's resting his players in the days leading up to the postseason.

With the idea of an NBA team in Louisville being floated around in the last couple of years, it’s important that we remember where the history of professional basketball in Kentucky was originated.

As I stated earlier, bye week is usually a boring, disappointing time for fans. Watching a college football Saturday isn’t the same knowing that the ‘Cats haven’t played or will later in the day.
Both the Diamondbacks and Rockies have already been eliminated from postseason contention, so Saturday afternoon's game (COL 5, ARI 1) didn't have a whole lot of meaning. That doesn't mean nothing cool happened.
Minor, 26, missed spring training and the first few weeks of the season with shoulder inflammation. It's worth noting his fastball averaged 90.7 mph on Saturday, right in line with his 90.5 mph season average.
In 24 starts and 144 1/3 innings coming into Saturday, Minor went 6-11 with a 4.74 ERA (76 ERA+). He went 13-9 with a 3.21 ERA (117 ERA+) in 32 starts and 204 2/3 innings last year.
PITTSBURGH (AP) Matt Garza provided the edge, even if it ended his night early.
ST. LOUIS (AP) It didn't take Tony Cruz long to consider all of his home runs and rank his latest.
He's only had three in his 100-game career and the first two came on the road.
The team issued a release Saturday saying Schaub won't play but it's not injury related.
Rookie Derek Carr won the starting job for the Raiders (0-2) out of training camp after Schaub struggled in his first preseason since being traded to the Raiders from Houston in March.
Also Saturday, Oakland signed linebacker Bojay Filimoeatu to their active roster from the practice squad.
