SEATTLE — Three months into his major league career, Rougned Odor became the youngest player to hit a big league grand slam since Jose Reyes in 2003.

Odor homered off Erasmo Ramirez in the third inning to back Colby Lewis, and the last-place Texas Rangers beat Seattle 12-4 Wednesday to take two of three from the Mariners.

“I feel really good right now,” Odor said. “I don’t look for my number. I just play the game day to day.”

College football begins with low-key opening game
lubbockonline.com / Thu, 28 Aug 2014 03:35:45 +0000

ATLANTA — Welcome back, college football!

The major-college season began Wednesday night with a game that won’t have any impact on the national championship race: Georgia State, starting its first year as a full-fledged FBS member, takes on Division I newcomer Abilene Christian at the Georgia Dome.

It will be the first of three games in four days at the stadium in downtown Atlanta, the others having a bit more curb appeal. No. 18 Mississippi faces Boise State on Thursday night, then No. 2 Alabama meets West Virginia on Saturday.

Healthy Romo key with Dallas defense in disarray
lubbockonline.com / Thu, 28 Aug 2014 03:45:52 +0000

ARLINGTON — Even if Tony Romo’s surgically repaired back holds up, the Dallas Cowboys could have a difficult time matching the 8-8 finish they’ve had for three years running.

A beleaguered defense that gave up the third-most yards in NFL history last year is in disarray, and it won’t be long before the season opens against San Francisco.

More than likely, the Cowboys will simply have to outscore opponents to avoid matching the franchise record of five straight years without a trip to the playoffs.
