Cardinals top prospect, Taveras, killed in automobile accident

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras and one of the top prospects of the past several seasons, died Sunday in an auto accident in his native Dominican Republic, Dominican police confirmed to USA TODAY Sports. Taveras' girlfriend also died in the crash, according to police in Puerto Plata. The Dominican newspaper Listin Diario said the name of his girlfriend is Edilia Arvelo. She was 18. Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak expressed his condolences to the family, but said the team was awaiting more details before making a formal announcement. "We are all stunned and deeply saddened by the tragic loss of one of the youngest members of the Cardinals family," Cardinals Chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. said in a statement. "Oscar was an amazing talent with a bright future who was taken from us well before his time. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends tonight." "I simply can't believe it," Mozeliak said. "I first met Oscar when he was sixteen years old and will forever remember him as a wonderful young man who was a gifted athlete with an infectious love for life who lived every day to the fullest." Lieutenant Junior Lopez Reyes of the Puerto Plata police confirmed Taveras and his girlfriend had died. Taveras was heading from Jamao to his hometown of Sosua, near Puerto Plata in the Atlantic Coast of the Dominican Republic. Lopez Reyes did not know yet the details of the accident. "We're still investigating at the scene. We've had some heavy rainfall here lately. It might have contributed to the accident.'' Bryan Mejia, Taveras' agent, told reporters that Taveras and his girlfriend died in the accident. No other details were immediately available. Taveras, 22, debuted with the Cardinals this season and batted .239 in 80 games, finishing the season as a part-time outfielder. The Cardinals were planning for him to compete with Randal Grichuk for the starting right field job but wanted him to focus on improving his conditioning during this offseason. The next-to-last hit of his career was a seventh-inning, pinch-hit game-tying home run off San Francisco's Jean Machi in Game 2 of this year's National League Division Series, a game the Cardinals eventually won on Kolten Wong's walk-off homer in the ninth. "All of us throughout Major League Baseball are in mourning this evening, shocked by the heartbreaking news of the accident involving Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras and his girlfriend in the Dominican Republic," MLB Commissioner Bud Selig said in a statement. "Oscar, a young member of the Baseball family, was full of promise and at the dawn of a wonderful career in our game, evident in his game-tying home run against the Giants exactly two weeks ago." "We are very saddened to learn of the news that a car accident has claimed the life of Oscar Tavares and his girlfriend in the Dominican Republic," MLB Players Association director Tony Clark said in a statement. "Oscar had a very promising future, on and off the field, and this news is heartbreaking on many levels. It's never easy to lose a member of our fraternity, and to lose one so young is devastating news. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of both, as well as to the St. Louis Cardinals organization and Oscar's many fans in the United States and the Dominican Republic." Over the past several years, he had been ranked as the second- and third-best prospect in the minor leagues by Baseball American, MLB.com and Baseball Prospectus. He was a .320 hitter over six minor league seasons, including .386 as a teenager in the Class A Midwest League in 2011.

'Third' time not a charm...Titans rookie QB suffers same fate as Texans blitz Tennessee

The Texans (4-4) snapped a three-game skid and beat the team they replaced in Houston for the fourth time in five games. Arian Foster ran for 151 yards and two touchdowns and also caught a pass for a score, topping 100 yards rushing in his fourth straight game for the first time he's done that in his career. The performance marked Foster's 31st career 100-yard rushing game, tying Priest Holmes for the most in NFL history by an undrafted player. Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney played for the first time since hurting his knee in the season opener. Clowney played mostly in passing situations and finished with one tackle. Rookie Zach Mettenberger turned the ball over twice, finishing with 299 yards passing and two touchdowns in his NFL starting debut after starting the year as Tennessee's third-string QB. The Titans (2-6) go into their bye having lost two straight. The Texans had given up 24 points in a single quarter each of their past two losses. This time, they trailed only 3-0 early before scoring 27 straight points. They had no trouble throttling a Tennessee offense playing three rookies with left tackle Taylor Lewan and running back Bishop Sankey joining Mettenberger. D.J. Swearinger intercepted a Mettenberger pass in the second quarter to end the Titans' first drive into Houston territory, and Tim Jamison recovered the fumble after Watt sacked Mettenberger and popped the ball out to end Tennessee's first drive in the third quarter. Houston led 13-3 at halftime, a lead that should have been much bigger. The Titans forced the Texans to settle for two field goals by Randy Bullock on drives inside the Tennessee 12, and Houston had first-and-goal at the Titans 2 when Fitzpatrick was sacked for the fourth time. Foster broke loose on a 34-yard TD where he cut back to his right and outraced the Titans to the pylon with 6:00 left in the first half to put Houston ahead to stay. He also caught a 5-yard TD pass and scored on a 1-yard run that he set up with a 43-yard run in the third quarter. Bullock finished with three field goals, including a long of 49 yards. Whisenhunt turned his offense over to Mettenberger, the sixth-round draft pick out of LSU, after the Titans had lost five of six with Jake Locker missing three of those with separate injuries. Mettenberger gave glimpses of his strong arm with a 48-yard toss to Kendall Wright and a 43-yarder to Nate Washington. The rookie had his first career TD pass on a 6-yarder to Delanie Walker. The quarterback switch didn't fix Tennessee's other woes. The run game remains nonexistent. Three of the Titans' six penalties were on the offense, and not being flagged once in the second half counted as progress. Hoping a week off will fix some major issues, the Titans will next be in action Sunday, November 9, when they travel North to Baltimore for a match-up with the Ravens (5-3). Pregame at 11:00 am, kickoff at noon on K95.7 WCCK Sports.

Fighting like Cats and Dogs...Big Blue gives MSU big scare as #1 escapes Commonwealth

Mississippi State's recent slugfests with Kentucky have taught the Bulldogs that there's no such thing as a safe lead against the Wildcats. And thanks to timely touchdowns by Dak Prescott, Josh Robinson and Christian Holmes, the nation's top-ranked team built a cushion culminating in another hard-earned victory over the Wildcats. Prescott accounted for three touchdowns, Robinson rushed for two TDs and No. 1 Mississippi State (7-0, 4-0 SEC) held on to beat Kentucky 45-31 on Saturday; a win that wasn't truly decided until Holmes' 61-yard kickoff return for the clinching touchdown with 2:22 remaining. Holmes' score on the short kick was the exclamation point in a wild game that stubborn Kentucky (5-3, 2-3 SEC) tied early and got within a touchdown another four times - the last coming on Patrick Towles' 4-yard TD run nine seconds earlier that made it 38-31. Credit Heisman Trophy hopeful Prescott and Robinson, who answered with TDs on three occasions. Prescott ran for TDs of 2 and 11 yards and hit Brandon Hill for an 8-yard TD. Robinson's 73-yard touchdown run early in the fourth for a 38-24 lead proved critical when Towles scored later in the quarter. His 12-yard TD run capped Mississippi State's 82-yard opening drive and set the stage for him to finish with 198 yards rushing on 23 carries. Prescott chipped in 216 yards passing and 88 yards rushing on 18 carries. But he had to work to complete 18 of 33 passes as Kentucky sacked him three times and intercepted him once. Mississippi State outgained Kentucky 542-504 and needed every yard. Those big contributions helped Bulldogs win their 10th straight game dating back to last season. They also earned their sixth straight win over the Wildcats in tying the series at 21 wins each. But typical of a competitive series where four of the past six games have been decided by a touchdown or less, Mississippi State couldn't exhale until the final gun. That's because Kentucky used big plays to stay close as Towles hit Demarco Robinson for a game-tying 67-yard touchdown in the first quarter and Javess Blue for a 58-yard TD late in the third. Towles' 48-yard run in that quarter set up his 10-yard run that brought the Wildcats within 24-17. Towles finished with 390 yards on 24-of-43 passing and led Kentucky with 76 yards rushing on 23 carries. Taking over after Kentucky punted on the opening drive, Prescott completed his first five passes for 56 yards to lead Mississippi State into Kentucky territory. But Prescott's biggest play was recovering his own fumble at the Wildcats 13 after a 3-yard gain, extending the drive and setting up Josh Robinson's walk-in touchdown on the next play. Kentucky responded quickly with Towles' TD pass to Demarco Robinson that got the homecoming crowd of 64,791 back in the game. If going up to snag the high pass wasn't impressive enough, Robinson managed to keep his feet inbounds as he came down while shaking off the defender. Mississippi State scored 10 straight points, converting Braylon Heard's fumble into Evan Sobiesk's 26-yard field goal and while Prescott added a 2-yard TD run. Prescott capped the Bulldogs' opening drive of the second half with a bullish 11-yard TD run for a 24-10 lead that still wasn't safe. While progress is still being made, the next step for the Cats is to become bowl eligible, which can happen with a conference win at Mizzou (6-2, 3-1 SEC) on Saturday. Pregame at 1:30 pm, kickoff at 3:00 pm on 99.1 FM WCBL Sports.

Racers unleash fury on Panthers as Murray State bounces back in record-setting rout

KD Humphries threw for 293 yards and two touchdowns, and rushed for 55 yards and two more scores, to lead Murray State to an 86-29 win over Division II Kentucky Wesleyan on Saturday. DeQavius Walker returned the opening kickoff 84 yards and Murray State (3-5) built a 27-10 lead after one quarter, 41-29 at halftime and then scored 31 points in the third. Murray State outgained Kentucky Wesleyan 408 to 14 on the ground. Pokey Harris led the way with 10 carries for 176 yards and a score. Nick Taylor and CJ Bennett both had a rushing TD and Marcus Holliday had two scores on four carries. Dalton Oliver completed 29 of 47 passes for Kentucky Wesleyan (4-4) and had two touchdown passes. Xavier Mitchell caught nine balls for 102 yards and a score. Murray State set a school single-game scoring record, eclipsing its 83-point mark in 2013 against Campbellsville. It's back to the OVC for the Blue & Gold on Saturday as they welcome the Skyhawks of UT-Martin (4-5) to Roy Stewart Stadium. Kickoff at 1:00 pm.

Cards hurricane ride through the Atlantic Coast continues with nail-biter against 'Pack

Louisville waited nearly two years to get this kind of performance from running back Michael Dyer, whose breakout game stole some thunder from wide receiver DeVante Parker's thrilling return to action. The seniors' stellar contributions were timely and critical in helping the Cardinals pull away from stubborn North Carolina State. Dyer rushed for Louisville career bests of 173 yards on 24 carries, including a game-sealing 46-yard touchdown run with 44 seconds remaining, as the Cardinals held off the Wolfpack 30-18 on Saturday. Parker returned from a nearly two-month absence because of a broken left toe to catch nine passes for 132 yards, including 111 in the first half. His first reception for 37 yards led to Louisville's opening-drive TD and set the tone for an offense needing a boost. The Wolfpack (4-4, 0-4 ACC) drew within 23-18 on Jacoby Brissett's 21-yard touchdown pass to David J. Grinnage with 2:21 remaining, but the 2-point conversion pass failed as Cardinals safety Terell Floyd knocked the ball from Na'Quan Brown's hands. The play was upheld upon review. Louisville (6-2, 4-2 ACC) recovered the onside kick and Dyer put it away a few plays later. Will Gardner threw two TD passes in his first start since Sept. 20 at Florida International and John Wallace kicked field goals of 40, 38 and 45 yards in a hard-earned victory for Louisville, which outgained N.C. State 369-351. Dyer's 3-yard gain on the first play created an immediate buzz that Parker followed with a 37-yard reception to set up Gardner's 13-yard touchdown pass to Eli Rogers six plays later. Gardner also hit Kai De La Cruz with 3-yard TD pass just before halftime. Putting N.C. State away took work for Louisville and some breaks, the biggest of which was a reversal of Gardner's late third-quarter fumble that N.C. State linebacker Airius Moore returned more than 70 yards for a TD that would have brought the Wolfpack within 17-15 with 1:21 remaining. Replays appeared to show that as Gardner tripped and fell backward, his elbow hit the turf before the ball popped loose. Gardner was ruled down upon review and the call was overturned, a huge momentum swing that Louisville converted into Wallace's second field goal and a 20-9 lead. Hoping to gain some consistency in the win column, the Cards will face their toughest challenge to date in Heisman QB Jameis Winston and defending national champion #2 Florida State (7-0, 5-0 ACC) on Thursday, October 30. Pregame at 5:00 pm, kickoff at 6:30 pm on K95.7 WCCK Sports.
