Word of the Day: Ombudsman— An official appointed to investigate individuals’ complaints against administration, especially that of public authorities.

Ohio State 49, Rutgers 10— Buckeyes faked a punt when they led 49-10 in 4th quarter; this annoyed the visitors from New Jersey, and the two coaches exchanged words.

Jim Mora Jr gets his first big moment with the Huskies.

Braves 4, Mets 2— Atlanta leads NL East by a game, with four games left to play; if teams end up tied, Mets win the division. Kyle Wright won his 21st game for the Braves.

Marlins 4, Brewers 3— Miami scored twice in 9th inning to put Milwaukee a game behind the Phillies, who also own the tiebreaker. Maybe the Brewers shouldn’t have traded Josh Hader.

I've been involved in sports my whole life, now just write about them. I like to travel, mostly to Las Vegas- they have gambling there.
