The TaxSlayer Center in Moline was busy throughout Thursday morning and afternoon.

\"It's for the Michael Buble concert tonight,\" explained the woman soaking up the sun and directing traffic in and out of the Tax Slayer Center's parking lot. \"The people going have to be vaccinated or be able to show a test. You know, COVID?

\"If you go around the other side, you'll see the signs.\"

Sure enough, red-letter temporary signs explained proof of COVID-19 or a test were required for entry. The safety measure brought people early to avoid lining up just before the concert.

\"They give one of these to get in. The tests have to be from the last 72 hours,\" said a woman who showed off a neon green wrist band as she hustled back to her day job.

Vaccine mandates are growing issue as the COVID-19 Delta virus has increased spread throughout the United States and crowded hospitals. President Joe Biden's directive that all companies with 100 or more employees make vaccinations or testing a requirement grabbed the biggest headlines \u2014 but COVID-19 safety requirements at indoor venues are becoming more common.

A new mandate in Iowa?

Iowa schools were barred from mandating masks by Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds until last week, when a federal judge halted the ban pending a new lawsuit on behalf of parents in several Iowa communities, including Davenport.

It didn't take long for the Davenport School district to put new safety requirements in place.

Face coverings will be mandatory for students, staff and anyone else in a district building. The Davenport School Board's decision was based at least in part on U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines that say all people should wear a mask indoors in areas of high COVID-19 transmission.

The Scott County Health Department meets with school on a weekly basis to help deal with COVID-19 safety concerns.

\"We have been encouraging the school districts to follow the CDC guidance for schools, which includes universal masking,\" Scott County Health Department Director Amy Thoreson said.

Muscatine schools also instituted a mask mandate on Friday for students in pre-kindergarten to sixth grade.

The story is the same on the Illinois side of the Quad-Cities \u2014 where mask mandates have been in place for over month.

\"We talk regularly with school leaders and with the regional office of education. There is a mask mandate in Illinois for any indoor public space, including all public and private schools,\" Rock Island County COO Janet Hill explained. \"The Illinois State Board of Education is cracking down on schools that are not enforcing masking. ISBE's punishment has included revoking a district's recognition status. This means that these districts lose state funding and can't participate in athletic events. To my knowledge, none of those districts are in Rock Island County.\"

COVID hospitalizations remain high in Q-C

Hospital ICUs have been near capacity in the Quad-Cities for weeks, and cases among children are on the rise \u2014 a factor that played a role in Davenport school district's decision to require masks.

As of Monday, the area's two largest health care providers had a combined 85 COVID-19 hospitalized patients \u2014 44 at Trinity and another 41 at Genesis. The health systems also reported 28 of those patients occupied ICU beds \u2014 15 at Trinity and 13 at Genesis.

According to spokesperson Brian Boesen, UnityPoint Health-Trinity is \"operating elective procedures at 75% capacity.\"

Genesis Health System echoed Trinity.

\" ... from time to time, we have had to limit or postpone, as well as cancel, some elective procedures. As we have had to be throughout the pandemic, we are fluid and respond to challenges on a day-by-day basis,\" Genesis Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kurt Andersen said Monday.

Andersen and Boesen said emergency services had not been curtailed because of the increased need for ICU care.

COVID-19 in the Q-C, by the numbers

On Friday, the Rock Island County Health Department reported 124 new cases of COVID-19 since Wednesday. The total number of cases identified since the start of the pandemic is 17,343.

Once again, people under the age of 30 comprise a significant portion of the new infections. Of the 124 new cases reported since Wednesday, 26 were women and girls under the age of 30, and another 24 were men and boys under 30.

The 40 men and women under the age of 30 account for 32.3% of the cases reported since Wednesday. A total of 14 of the 124 new cases were found in boys and girls under the age of 13.

The Rock Island County Health Department reported 219 new infections this week \u2014 and 80 of those infections were persons aged infant to 30. That's 36.5% of the week's new cases.

And of the 80 people under 30, 30 of those cases were found in boys and girls under the age of 13.

No new deaths were reported in Rock Island County, and that metric won't be updated in Scott County until Wednesday, Sept. 22. But there were five deaths in Q-C reported this week \u2014 putting the pandemic-long total for the Q-C at 605.

That total breaks down to 344 in Rock Island County and another 261 in Scott County.

In March and April of 2020, more than 22.3 million jobs were lost as government-mandated business closures and restrictions decimated entire swaths of the U.S. economy. The leisure and hospitality sector alone lost more than 8.2 million jobs \u2014 48% of its pre-pandemic labor force. The national unemployment rate surged from a 50-year low of 3.5% in February 2020 to 14.8%, just two months later.

But over the past 16 months, the labor market has made substantial progress. The economy has since recovered 17 million of those lost jobs and the unemployment rate has declined to 5.2%. However, this still leaves a massive 5.3 million jobs yet to be recovered. Of the 11 sectors of the economy tracked by the U.S. Department of Labor, none has reached its pre-pandemic level of employment.

Despite the steady progress, there\u2019s a growing concern the labor market\u2019s recent gains have vastly underperformed versus Wall Street\u2019s expectations. In August, the Department of Labor\u2019s monthly Employment Report showed that just 235,000 new jobs were added last month, far below Wall Street\u2019s forecast of a 740,000 gain. Over the past five months, the economy has added a combined 850,000 fewer jobs than expected. Moreover, in April and June, the nation\u2019s unemployment rate actually increased.

The recent underperformance is not because of a lack of jobs. According to the Department of Labor\u2019s latest Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, there are currently 10.93 million unfilled job openings across the nation \u2014 a record high. Many experts have pointed to a number of contributing factors. First, there are concerns over COVID-19. Also, because many schools were closed during the pandemic, a parent often had to stay at home to look after a child. Finally, because of very generous pandemic-related government benefits, many people simply chose to stay unemployed rather than return to their prior job.

But these arguments are quickly starting to wear thin. For most of the year, vaccines have been readily available to those who want them. Schools have once again reopened, allowing home-bound parents to return to work. And on Sept. 6, many of the supplemental unemployment benefits formally expired.

To be clear, it\u2019s not that the labor market is in bad shape or suffers from some deep, structural flaw. But the continued underperformance is raising cautionary flags on the perceived strength of the labor market\u2019s recovery. For Wall Street, the goal is not to simply plod along from one month to the next. Instead, it\u2019s to quickly return to a sub-4% unemployment rate.

Wall Street contends that our vaccine-fueled reopening of the American economy should inherently result in large, easy gains in job growth as people return to work. In other words, this should be a \u201cfree ride,\" with little to no effort. But despite these sizable tailwinds, the labor market continues to underperform.

Wall Street knows these large, easy gains need to be maximized while possible. At some point, the current free ride will end. And for the economy, any gains in the labor market will become much tougher to come by.

DES MOINES --- Proposed new political maps in Iowa would dramatically alter the state\u2019s four Congressional districts and 150 statehouse districts for the next 10 years.

The potential political impact can already be measured at the Congressional level, where both Democrats and Republicans stand to benefit.

And the maps provide yet another illustration of Iowa\u2019s declining rural and surging suburban populations.

But are these proposed maps destined to guide Iowa politics for the next decade? Or are they destined for rejection and the allure of something better? Those questions will not be answered until state lawmakers convene for a special session of the Iowa Legislature on October 5 at the Iowa Capitol.

To help analyze the proposed maps\u2019 potential impacts, the bureau conducted email interviews with three Iowa political science professors: Timothy Hagle at the University of Iowa, Dennis Goldford at Drake University, and Christopher Larimer at the University of Northern Iowa.

Regardless of whether these maps are approved, they provide another illustration of how Iowa\u2019s population --- like so many other states\u2019 --- is shifting from rural to urban and suburban areas.

Iowa\u2019s Congressional districts must be as equal as possible in population. In drawing the districts, the state\u2019s nonpartisan Legislative Services Agency needed 44 counties in western Iowa\u2019s 4th District to match the population total of just 12 counties in eastern Iowa\u2019s 1st District.

\u201cThe one thing I can point to, whatever the final Congressional map might be, is the continuing thinning out of rural Iowa,\u201d said Dennis Goldford, a political science professor at Drake University. \u201cApplied to the new state legislative maps, we\u2019re seeing a strong concentration of population in urban areas, exacerbating the rural-urban political and cultural divide: a lot of land area containing few people in the former, and not much land area containing a lot of people in the latter.\u201d

Meantime, a dive into some voting data behind the proposed maps illustrates their potential effects.

At the Congressional level, the biggest changes would come in eastern Iowa. If these proposed maps are approved --- and there is far from any guarantee they will --- the 1st and 2nd Congressional districts will look nothing over the next decade like they did during the previous one.

The new 1st District would retain just two of the same counties it contained from 2012-2021: Linn and Jones. The other 10 counties --- yes, it would also shrink to a mere 12 counties --- would be all new.

And geographically, the 1st and 2nd districts would essentially make north-south swaps. The 1st would become a more compact southeastern Iowa district, and the 2nd a more expansive and more heavily northeastern district, stretching from the northern border with Winneshiek and Allamakee counties to as far south as Wapello and Jefferson counties.

\u201cObviously the flip in (Iowa-1) and (Iowa-2) in terms of geographic location as well as the change in size for both districts (stood out),\u201d Larimer said.

The 1st District\u2019s facelift also would be political, and it would benefit Democrats. Using the state\u2019s most current voter registration numbers, Democrats would go from a voter registration edge of 3 percentage points to an advantage of 10.1 points, or from a total voter registration advantage of 14,244 to one of 46,870.

Presidential voting numbers from the 2020 elections in those counties suggest a similar Democratic boost in the new 1st. An analysis from Dave Wasserman of the national Cook Political Report showed that by using the presidential vote in the counties involved, the current 1st District went for Republican Donald Trump by 3.4 points in 2020, but the proposed counties for a new 1st District would have given the district to Democrat Joe Biden by 8.7 points, a massive 12-point swing to Democrats.

But that comes with a trade-off, as the proposed new 2nd District would build upon momentum that has been building for Republicans in its current version.

Under the proposal, the 2nd District\u2019s political leaning would essentially swap, from a 2.8-point Democratic advantage to a 2.2-point Republican edge. In terms of pure voter registration numbers, the district would go from Democrats having a 12,789-voter advantage to Republicans gaining the upper hand by 9,972 voters.

\u201c(Iowa-1) shrank geographically because it picked up Johnson and Scott Counties while keeping Linn,\u201d Hagle said. \u201cThose more populous counties forced more rural counties to be left to (Iowa-2).\u201d

Central Iowa\u2019s 3rd District would improve slightly for Democrats, moving their voter registration advantage there from just under 1 percentage point to just over 2 points. Perhaps just as important, Polk County would become an even bigger share of the overall district, from 56.1% of its registered voters to 60.3%. This is noteworthy because when Democrats win the district, they typically do so by only winning Polk County and driving up their margins there, while attempting to minimize their deficits in all of the other counties.

Western Iowa\u2019s 4th District, a longtime conservative stronghold (see: King, Steve) would get even more Republican, and it would also get bigger. The proposed new 4th District would be 44 counties, pushing close to half of the state. Geographically, it would span as far northeast as Howard and Chickasaw counties, cut the state diagonally and include Fremont, Mills and Montgomery counties in the southwest corner.

Larimer and Hagle said they believe the proposed maps would create two consistently competitive districts --- the 2nd and 3rd --- while the 4th would remain a Republican lock and the 1st a strong Democratic district.

\u201cIn terms of competitiveness, we are likely to remain a state with three competitive districts and one safe district,\u201d Larimer said. \u201cIf you look across the country, for states with multiple (Congressional districts), Iowa sticks out in this regard in terms of the level of competition. I imagine we will once again be a state with at least two districts ranked among the most competitive in the country.\u201d

Then there is the matter of the 150 statehouse districts: 100 in the Iowa House and 50 in the Iowa Senate. As it regularly does, the redistricting process has tossed many sitting state lawmakers into the same, newly proposed district.

According to Iowa House staff members, in the House there are 11 proposed districts that include two sitting Republican legislators, including one that roped in three and another that includes both House Speaker Pat Grassley and Rep. Shannon Latham. And there are four proposed districts that include two sitting Democratic legislators. All told, that includes 31 legislators.

Senate staff members did not respond to requests for similar information.

\u201cOur redistricting method doesn\u2019t protect incumbents, and \u2026 it often forces change among the legislators (that) can be a good way to shake things up and get new folks in the legislature,\u201d Hagle said. \u201cExperience is good, but you don\u2019t want things to get stale.\u201d

If state lawmakers reject this set of proposed maps during the special session, the Legislative Services Agency would create a second set of proposed maps. Lawmakers would then vote to accept or reject those.

If the second proposal is rejected, lawmakers must approve LSA\u2019s third proposal --- but legislators also would be able to amend those maps.

Want to rent in Bettendorf? It'll cost you.\u00a0

Bettendorf\u2019s median gross rent prices are the highest in the Quad-Cities at $914 per month, according to an ongoing Quad-City Times and Moline Dispatch-Argus analysis of rental markets in the metro. (By comparison, Davenport is second-highest at $771 per month.)

As new construction soars, especially in north Bettendorf, economists and housing experts say the city would be better served if it fostered more residences for people with lower incomes, many of whom work in Bettendorf but can't afford to live there.\u00a0

Bettendorfers need to make $20 an hour to avoid residential cost burdens \u2014 paying more than 30% of monthly income toward rent. Residents earning minimum wage in Iowa would spend 79% of their income on rent in Bettendorf.\u00a0

Nevertheless, the number of low-cost occupied apartments in Bettendorf has decreased in the past decade, while apartments priced over $1,000 increased by 996,\u00a0according to census data.

Apartment complexes like the recently constructed Bridges Lofts, at the end of the new Interstate 74 bridge, reflect increasing rent prices, with the smallest 422-square-foot apartment priced at $800 a month. Jeff Reiter, economic development director of Bettendorf, worked with Frank Levy, president of Newbury Living, to develop the Bridges Lofts in order to attract residents who would \u201cactivate downtown.\u201d

\u201cThat's true for people of all income classes,\u201d Levy said, \u201cbut it's more true for affluent people, for obvious reasons.\u201d

Reiter said like other Bettendorf redevelopment efforts, he had no specific income range in mind while developing the apartments.

But Levy, who has constructed both subsidized affordable housing and market-rate housing in the Quad-Cities, said Bettendorf offered substantial incentives to produce apartments with luxury amenities, like a pool and large balconies, on the lot of the former Twin Bridges Motor Inn, a motel that posed safety concerns.

\u201cThe city was driving the goal,\u201d Levy said. \u201cWe knew that it was a fast-growing, economically vital town with a lot of people who could afford to pay for attractive apartments.\u201d

Workforce Affordable Housing in Bettendorf

Leslie Kilgannon, director of the QC Housing Cluster, said all of the Quad-Cities were experiencing increasing rent prices coupled with an affordable housing crisis.

\u201cMarket rate is a challenge if the wages aren't keeping up,\u201d Kilgannon said. \u201cMarket rate isn't always affordable for what people would think of as middle class.\u201d

Even though Bettendorf's median household income is tops in the Quad-Cities at $82,153, the city needs more housing options \u2014 not just single-family homes or high-end rentals, according to Jane Rongerude, a professor of community planning at Iowa State University.

Diverse housing structures, a range of apartments, multiplexes and single-family homes, with a range of rent prices, increases the likelihood residents will find housing at their price level.\u00a0

\u201cWe need to move away from the exclusionary zoning, where we're only zoning for high-end, single-family homes,\u201d Rongerude said.\u00a0

Bettendorf\u2019s citywide residential land-use goals dedicate 65% of land be used toward single-family homes, according to the city\u2019s zoning ordinance. The remaining land would be developed into townhouses and apartments, which may offer more affordable housing for people with lower salaries.

Although housing in Iowa, and the Quad-Cities, is more affordable than other areas of the country, the wages are also lower, according to Rongerude. Individuals with lower salaries are the ones pushed out by the increasing market-rate prices.

\u201cSo many of the jobs where people are making lower salaries are jobs that we absolutely depend on for our cities to run well,\u201d Rongerude said. \u201cThere's that workforce housing or the workforce population that people talk about.\u201d

No designated low-income subsidized housing for all ages

Unless you\u2019re a senior or a person with a disability, you will not be find subsidized low-income designated housing in Bettendorf.

A review of the listings on Iowa Housing Search \u2014 the website officials recommend when searching for low-income housing in Iowa \u2014 showed six income-restricted complexes. But all developments are restricted to senior citizens or people with disabilities.

Unlike Davenport, Bettendorf does not have designated low-income apartment complexes for all ages. Despite having Section 8 vouchers accepted in the city, not having dedicated complexes makes housing less accessible because voucher recipients are competing with the general population for rentals.

When cities put units and buildings in place for low-income subsidized housing, you are preserving a space for lower-income citizens to join the community and can target specific subsidies, according to Rongerude.

\u201cBut that's also why they're controversial because there's a lot of stereotypes associated with low-income people,\u201d Rongerude said.

The misconception that low-income housing lowers property values is common, Rongerude said, but it is possible to create low-income housing that blends with the community.

Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher

It\u2019s legal for Iowa landlords to reject prospective residents if they are planning to rent with a Section 8 voucher.

Bettendorf has 232 families currently using vouchers toward rental assistance.

Otavio Bartalotti, who studies economic mobility at Iowa State University, said although, in theory, vouchers enable families to move to wealthier areas with increased access to resources, it typically doesn\u2019t work out that way.

\u201cA lot of times those vouchers are not accepted by the landlords and make people jump through too many hoops to be able to use vouchers in higher-rent areas,\u201d Bartalotti said.

Even if residents are able to get off of lengthy waiting lists and receive vouchers, there is a ceiling rent set by the Department of Housing and Urban Development for voucher recipients. If there aren\u2019t enough workforce lower-cost apartments in a city, it prevents them from moving into the community with their voucher.

\u201cYou have to have the units,\u201d Rongerude said. \u201cIf you don't have the units, it doesn't do you any good.\u201d

A lack of available affordable units in wealthier areas is one reason why voucher recipients are forced to stay in areas considered poor already, according to Bartalotti, which negates the impact of the vouchers. If there are affordable units in the area, it is most likely that non-voucher recipients will have access to rent them because of a landlord\u2019s discretion and scarcity of affordable housing.

The use of vouchers is racialized in Iowa, as some majority-white communities do not want people of color from urban communities to come to their cities because of racist stereotypes, according to Rongerude. This limits the options for voucher recipients of color and keeps them in higher poverty areas.

Economic mobility and housing

Residents of lower socioeconomic status moving into wealthier areas with increased access to resources, like Bettendorf, helps break the cycle of poverty, according to Rongerude and Bartalotti.\u00a0

When essential workers, who typically have lower-paying jobs, live closer to where they work, they are more dependable and business services are more reliable to the community, according to Rongerude.

\u201cThe people themselves want to be dependable,\u201d she said.

Areas with higher incomes, like Bettendorf, have better access to resources, like grocery stores. More easily accessible resources can help people with low-incomes raise their socioeconomic status, according to Bartalotti.

With economic diversification comes racial and ethnic diversity, according to the Tri-Cities Housing Assessment that reports the majority of citizens who would qualify for subsidized housing programs in the Quad-Cities are residents of color.

Research shows that there are benefits to diverse communities, especially when it comes to decision and policy making, according to Bartalotti.

\u201cBut in general, it's probably a plus for everybody,\u201d Bartalotti said.

The housing instability seen throughout the pandemic proves the importance of enacting supportive housing policies in the Quad-Cities, according to Kilgannon.

\u201cHomelessness really can impact anyone if given the circumstance,\u201d Kilgannon said. \u201cThere are no borders or boundaries around any city in our community where we will be seeing those kinds of situations.\u201d

CHICAGO \u2014 Justin Fields got his first extended look as a pro. And it might be a long-term arrangement.

Fields played the second half after Andy Dalton exited with a knee injury against his former team, and the rookie quarterback used Chicago's stellar defensive performance to direct the Bears to a 20-17 victory over Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

Roquan Smith returned an interception 53 yards for his first career touchdown, one of three straight picks thrown by Burrow and four consecutive takeaways for the Bears during the decisive stretch in their first win of the season.

Fields took over on Chicago's final drive of the second quarter after getting in on a handful of plays prior to that. But the biggest key for the Bears was the defense bouncing back after it was picked apart by Matthew Stafford in a season-opening loss at the Los Angeles Rams.

\"I don't think I'm pleased with how I played at all,\" Fields said after throwing for 60 yards. \"I think there's a lot more in me that I have to show. I know there's gonna come a time. I know it's not gonna happen overnight, so I'm just gonna keep grinding. No matter what happens, I know I'm meant for this. I'm meant to be here.\"

Dalton was hurt on a 14-yard run early in the second quarter. Fields took the final three snaps of that possession.

Dalton was in for the next drive, before Fields led Chicago's final one of the half. Dalton took some warmup throws at halftime, but did not return to the game.

Coach Matt Nagy said Dalton was available in an emergency. He also said he was \"pretty sure\" Dalton did not have a serious ACL injury, though the quarterback was to be examined more in the next few days.

But would Dalton start if he's able or Fields?

\"I'm not gonna get into any of that,\" Nagy said.

The Bears were up 20-3 before Burrow threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to Ja'Marr Chase. Fields then got intercepted at the Chicago 25 by Logan Wilson, who returned it to the 7. Burrow hit Tee Higgins for a 7-yard TD on the next play, cutting it to 20-17 with 3:39 remaining. But the Bears hung on for their third straight win over Cincinnati (1-1).

Fields, who was in on five plays in the opener, completed just 6 of 13 passes. The No. 11 overall draft pick also ran for 31 yards.

\"I'm just anxious to see what I messed up on and what I have to do better,\" Fields said. \"I didn't play well in my eyes.\"

If he's the starter?

\"I'll be prepared,\" Fields said.

Dalton, facing his former team for the second time in as many seasons, threw a touchdown pass to Allen Robinson. The three-time Pro Bowler, who led Dallas to a victory at Cincinnati last year, completed 9 of 11 passes for 56 yards.

Robinson caught his 40th career TD when he hauled in an 11-yarder on the game's opening possession.

Robert Quinn had two sacks, giving him 2 1/2 this season after he had just two last year.

BURROW STRUGGLES

Burrow never threw more than one interception in his first 11 outings as a pro, and his high in 38 games for Ohio State and LSU was two. He threw three in this one.

The 2019 Heisman Trophy winner was 19 of 30 for 207 yards and two TDs, after setting career highs in passer rating (128.8) and yards per attempt (9.67) in an overtime win over Minnesota.

\"That's just me trying to force the ball trying to get something going,\" he said. \"You learned a lesson today that when your defense is playing as good as they are, you don't have to force those balls. You kind of just let the game come to you.\"

BEARS TAKE CONTROL

The Bears (1-1) led 10-3 after Cairo Santos kicked a 28-yard field goal in the opening seconds of the fourth quarter that was set up by Tashaun Gipson's fumble recovery.

Smith made it a 14-point game when he leaped to haul in a short pass intended for Tyler Boyd at the 47 and returned up the left sideline.

Jaylon Johnson got his first career interception on Cincinnati's next possession. After Chicago punted, Angelo Blackson got his first as a pro deep in Bengals territory on a ball that teammate Alec Ogletree deflected. That led to another field goal for Santos, making it 20-3.

ST. LOUIS \u2014 This weekend of play did a lot to separate contenders from pretenders in the competition for the National League\u2019s second wild-card spot. A late-season winning streak of eight games has a way of doing that.

The Cardinals matched their longest winning streak since Aug. 7-15 of 2018 when then completed a sweep of the San Diego Padres 8-7 at Busch Stadium Sunday before a paid crowd of 35,326. Over their past eight games, the Cardinals have beaten Cincinnati twice, New York three times and San Diego three times. All were second wild-card contenders when those series began.

Now, none of them is a stronger contender, notably the Mets, who are below .500. Both Cincinnati and San Diego found themselves four games out on the loss side after Sunday\u2019s competition with the Philadelphia Phillies three games down on the loss side before their game at New York.

The Atlanta Braves, whose Eastern Division lead over the Phillies has been shrinking, may turn out to be wild-card contenders, too, but the Cardinals are ahead of them on the loss side, also. The Cardinals got to 10 wins over .500 at 79-69 for the first time this season.

The Cardinals scored five in the first off former Chicago Cubs star Jake Arrieta, a former Cy Young Award winner who may have made his final St. Louis appearance. Then they were forced to hang on as their bullpen struggled before Giovanny Gallegos posted his 10th save, striking out two of three hitters he faced in the ninth.

Arrieta, who entered the game with a 7.05 earned run average, left after facing six batters in the inning, due to a right groin strain.

The 35-year-old wasn\u2019t helped by a dropped ball by center fielder Fernando Tatis Jr., on Nolan Arenado\u2019s shallow fly. Ta Tatis, normally a shortstop, scrambled after the ball and fired home well too late to catch Tommy Edman when Tatis had an easy force at second.

Edman had doubled for a league-leading 41st time to lead off the inning and moved to third on Paul Goldschmidt\u2019s single off the glove of diving shortstop Jake Cronenworth. Tyler O\u2019Neill walked before Tatis\u2019 muff.

Afterward, Dylan Carlson, who had banged into the right-field wall to make a remarkable, jumping catch on Tatis Jr., in the top of the first, hit a sacrifice fly to left to score Goldschmidt. Edmundo Sosa doubled off Arrieta for the third run and, after Arrieta departed, Harrison Bader doubled in two more off reliver Craig Stammen.

Happ exited for a pinch hitter after four innings and former closer Alex Reye made an early appearance in the fifth.

Reyes quickly restored order with a 1-2-3 inning and then the Cardinals upped their lead to four runs at 7-3.

Goldschmidt opened with a double to left center, executing a nifty slide to avoid second baseman Frazier\u2019s tag. Tyler O\u2019Neill, who hit key home runs in the previous two games, singled to score Goldschmidt and came home himself on Sosa\u2019s bloop double to right where Wil Myers missed on a diving attempt.

Pham homered off Reyes to cut the Cardinals\u2019 lead to 7-4 in the sixth. Lefthander T.J. McFarland threw his usual double-play ball in the seventh, with second baseman Edman making a slick tag of a runner and throw to first.

The Cardinals resumed their four-run lead in the home seventh when O\u2019Neill was hit by a pitch, stole second and scored on a single by Carlson, who drove in his second run.

But Luis Garcia had his major-league high of 25 1/3 scoreless innings snapped after he allowed one of McFarland's to score as the Padres surged for three in the eighth to slice the Cardinals' edge to one.

Pham knocked in his second and third runs with a two-run double. Advancing to third on shortstop Sosa's throwing error, Pham came home on an Eric Hosmer groundout against Genesis Cabrera.

MILWAUKEE \u2014 Patrick Wisdom set a Chicago Cubs record for homers by a rookie on a day that exemplified his feast-or-famine approach.

Wisdom struck out four times for a second straight day but delivered a towering three-run shot that highlighted the Chicago Cubs\u2019 eighth-inning comeback in a 6-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.

\u201cIt\u2019s tough when you have nights like I did last night, and then you see your name in the lineup again hitting fourth,\u201d Wisdom said. \u201cYou\u2019re like, \u2018Well, they still believe in me. I\u2019ve got to believe in myself.\u2019 It\u2019s kind of like a gut check to say, \u2018Hey, let\u2019s go.\u2019 Keep believing. Keep going.\u201d

The Brewers\u2019 ninth-inning rally fell short and the magic number for wrapping up their first NL Central title since 2018 remained at three. Milwaukee clinched its fourth consecutive playoff berth Saturday.

Wisdom has struck out on over 40% of his plate appearances, but he also has 27 homers. That breaks the franchise rookie record formerly held by Kris Bryant, who homered 26 times in 2015.

\u201cThis game is tough,\u201d Wisdom said. \u201cIt can really punch you in the gut sometimes. But you've got to keep getting back up. That's what it's about - resiliency and the next pitch, focusing on that.\u201d

Milwaukee trailed 6-2 before nearly coming all the way back against Rowan Wick in the bottom of the ninth.

Christian Yelich singled home two runs with a two-out single. Omar Narv\u00e1ez singled and Luis Ur\u00edas walked to load the bases. The Cubs brought in Michael Rucker, who retired Jace Peterson on a fly to center to earn his first career save.

\u201cJace hit a ball pretty good actually, just got under it a little bit,\u201d Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.

The Brewers had beaten the Cubs 11 consecutive times, one off the franchise record for consecutive victories over one opponent. The Brewers won 12 straight from the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2008.

Milwaukee seemed on its way to matching that record until the Cubs rallied from a 2-1 deficit in the eighth.

Pinch-hitter Willson Contreras started the rally with a 14-pitch walk against Brad Boxberger (5-4). Matt Duffy and Frank Schwindel followed that up by hitting consecutive first-pitch RBI doubles.

\u201cIt was a great at bat by Contreras,\u201d Counsell said. \u201cI don't know that it took anything out of (Boxberger), but he made probably two pitches over the middle of the plate after that, and they hit them pretty hard.\"

Jandel Gustave took over for Boxberger and promptly walked David Bote and allowed Wisdom\u2019s 430-foot drive to center.

\u201cThe one thing that I love about Patrick is he just keeps having his at bats,\u201d Cubs manager David Ross said. \u201cIt hasn't been the best series for him offensively, a lot of swing-and-miss there, and he continues to be that threat. That's what he brings. He plays good defense. He's versatile. And he's got real thump in the bat.\u201d

The Cubs delivered their big rally after getting just two hits in the first seven innings.

Brewers starter Eric Lauer struck out six and allowed one run, one hit and three walks in 5 1/3 innings. He owns a 1.83 ERA over his last 13 appearances.

Lauer held the Cubs without a hit until Trayce Thompson sent an 0-2 pitch over the left-field wall with one out in the fifth to break a scoreless tie.

The homer was Thompson\u2019s first hit of any kind in the major leagues since June 14, 2018, when he was playing for the Chicago White Sox. He returned to the majors for the first time in over three years on Tuesday when the Cubs called him up from Triple-A Iowa.

Adam Morgan (1-0) earned the win with one inning of shutout relief.

CUBS DESIGNATE MAPLES

The Cubs have designated RHP Dillon Maples for assignment. Maples, 29, went 1-0 with a 2.59 ERA in 28 relief appearances this season but walked 25 batters in 31 1/3 innings.

TRAINER\u2019S ROOM

Cubs: RHP Keegan Thompson (shoulder inflammation) and IF Nico Hoerner (right oblique strain) started Sunday\u2019s game after getting activated from the injured list. Hoerner batted fifth and started at shortstop. \u2026 OF Nick Martini was optioned to Triple-A Iowa.

Brewers: CF Lorenzo Cain was out of the lineup with what Counsell described as \u201cgeneral body soreness\u201d after diving against the wall to rob Contreras of an extra-base hit Saturday. \u2026 SS Willy Adames, who went on the injured list Sept. 5 with a left quadriceps strain, is likely to return Monday. \u2026 Counsell said LHP Brett Anderson is healthy again. Anderson has been on the injured list since Sept. 2 with a shoulder bruise.

UP NEXT

The Cubs are off Monday before beginning a two-game home series with the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday. Alec Mills (6-6, 4.50 ERA) will start for the Cubs and Griffin Jax (3-4, 6.65) pitches for the Twins on Tuesday.

The Brewers open a four-game home series with the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday. Scheduled starters are RHP Freddy Peralta (9-4, 2.69 ERA) for the Brewers and RHP Jake Woodford (2-3, 4.30) for the Cardinals.

Roquan Smith couldn\u2019t say when his last end zone visit had been. Before Sunday afternoon, Smith never had scored a touchdown for the Chicago Bears. He didn\u2019t have any during a stellar college career at Georgia either.

Tracing backward, he went all the way back to the fall of 2014.

\u201cHigh school,\u201d Smith said with a grin.

Now that drought is over. For the first time since his days as a linebacker, receiver and running back for the Macon County Bulldogs, Smith has a touchdown to recap. It came with 10 minutes, 55 seconds remaining in Sunday\u2019s game at Soldier Field, an interception of Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow followed by a nifty 53-yard return across the north goal line.

For the first time in nearly two years, Soldier Field was shaking \u2014 really shaking \u2014 with more than 60,000 fans celebrating the biggest explosion in the Bears\u2019 20-17 victory.

Smith\u2019s pick-six was fitting, too, arguably the most significant play of an afternoon in which the defense looked like its old self, again concealing the continued struggles of a work-in-progress offense. Nine players either had a sack or played a major role in a takeaway.

The Bears were flying around. Dominating. Having fun.

Smith made his contribution with shrewd anticipation and impressive athleticism. He saw, in his words, \u201cflow\u201d with four potential Bengals pass catchers moving to the right on the play.

\u201cIf anything comes back,\u201d Smith said, \u201cI was going back.\u201d

That\u2019s when he saw Tyler Boyd in his peripheral vision and darted into Burrow\u2019s throwing lane.

\u201cYou can tell he studied that play before,\u201d Burrow said. \u201cHe pushed really, really fast and made a really good play.\u201d

Smith\u2019s hands snatched the football and his legs did the rest. Along the left sideline, he used an escort from teammates Alec Ogletree and Kindle Vildor to cover the final 40 yards.

Upon scoring, Smith forgot how long it had been since he last had such a moment and jubilantly flipped the football to a fan in the front row. There went that memento.

\u201cIn the moment,\u201d Smith said. \u201cI wish I would have kept it. But I\u2019m sure I made his year. \u2026 I\u2019ll just keep the jersey and I\u2019ll keep the memory.\u201d

It\u2019s little wonder Smith\u2019s teammates continue to speak about his emergence with such reverence. In a league in which the best teams rely on their stars to make consistent game-changing contributions, Smith is earning that status.

\u201cBest linebacker in the game,\u201d Bears safety Tashaun Gipson said. \u201cAnd I tell him that. I\u2019ve been saying that since last year. \u2026 He\u2019s just a phenomenal player, man. He can run like a DB and hit like a linebacker.\u201d

Added outside linebacker Robert Quinn: \u201cProbably one of the fastest linebackers I\u2019ve ever seen. And it\u2019s just how much he studies the game. He sees a formation and he kind of already knows what play is coming. Having a guy like that, he can make you right even when we mess up.\u201d

In addition to the interception, Smith absolutely mauled Burrow for an 8-yard sack early in the third quarter, flying off the left edge unaccounted for and making certain to finish the blitz. \u201cPretty much no one stopped me,\u201d he said.

That was the kind of hair-on-fire intensity the Bears defense played with for most of the afternoon. Smith\u2019s pick came during a surge in which the Bears created turnovers on four consecutive possessions.

Safety Eddie Jackson started the binge with a forced fumble on Bengals receiver Tee Higgins. Gipson scooped that loose ball, and the takeaway faucet had been turned on.

After Smith\u2019s interception, cornerback Jaylon Johnson recorded his first career pick on Burrow\u2019s next pass.

On the next series, Ogletree hammered Burrow as he looked to throw, and the fluttering football fell into the arms of defensive lineman Angelo Blackson, who returned it 6 yards inside the Bengals 10.

\u201cI did a reenactment of that in the locker room,\u201d fellow defensive lineman Akiem Hicks said. \u201cYou should have been there for that. Anytime a big guy gets the football, it\u2019s a pleasure to see.\u201d

Man, did this feel familiar to those in attendance at Soldier Field. On an afternoon when starting quarterback Andy Dalton left with a knee injury and rookie Justin Fields struggled in relief, the defense carried the load. During that takeaway surge, the verve was unmistakable.

\u201cTo have all those plays in succession, it was like, \u2018How is this happening?\u2019 \u201d Hick said. \u201cIt\u2019s important not to take that for granted. They don\u2019t all come like that.

\u201cWe\u2019ve had spans here where there weren\u2019t a lot of takeaways, there weren\u2019t a lot of sacks, and you\u2019re just waiting for that to pop. It\u2019s like a bubble \u2014 and we hit one today.\u201d

For a usually reliable Bears defense, Week 1 had been an embarrassment. Thirty-four points allowed. Only one sack. No takeaways. Three 75-yard touchdown drives allowed \u2014 in a row.

\u201cIt looked even worse than we thought,\u201d Gipson said.

Worst of all, Ogletree said in the middle of last week that he was surprised and somewhat bothered by the lack of energy the entire defense seemed to have in that opening loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

The Bears weren\u2019t going to allow that to happen again.

\u201cEverybody had a bad taste in their mouth,\u201d Hicks said. \u201cTaking that long trip (home), getting back at 5 a.m. after getting beat like that, it sits with you differently. Not only are you tired, but you just got done getting whupped. I think that sat with everybody. And everybody wanted to come out and play their best game.\u201d

Coach Matt Nagy challenged the defense to have a swarming mentality in Week 2. New defensive coordinator Sean Desai put together a game plan that confused Burrow with various coverage disguises. Players responded.

With 6 minutes left, the defense had more takeaways than points allowed. The Bears left Soldier Field with their first win and a sense that the defense is in a good place.

\u201cLast week wasn\u2019t our standard,\u201d Smith said. \u201cWe knew we had to get better.\u201d

That mission was accomplished.

\u201cThese types of games don\u2019t come often,\u201d Gipson said. \u201cBut, man, when they do, those are the fun types.\u201d

CHICAGO \u2014 The Justin Fields era for the Chicago Bears arrived earlier than expected Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field.

After starting quarterback Andy Dalton injured his knee while scrambling out of bounds in the second quarter, Fields played the entire second half of a 20-17 Bears victory.

Fields didn\u2019t lead a touchdown drive while completing 6 of 13 passes for 60 yards and throwing a fourth-quarter interception. But the Bears defense helped the rookie complete his first NFL victory.

Watch now: Justin Fields wasn\u2019t pleased with how he played Sunday

The Bears had four takeaways, including Roquan Smith\u2019s 53-yard interception return for a touchdown, to shed the bad taste from the season-opening performance against the Los Angeles Rams.

That was the first of three interceptions on three straight drives against Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow. Cornerback Jaylon Johnson followed with his first career interception, and defensive lineman Angelo Blackson picked off Burrow with help from inside linebacker Alec Ogletree\u2019s pressure.

Earlier in the game, safety Eddie Jackson forced a fumble that safety Tashaun Gipson recovered.

The Bears also sacked Burrow four times.

Dalton, who spent the second half on the sideline, led a scoring drive to open the game, hitting Allen Robinson with an 11-yard touchdown pass.

The Bears offense didn\u2019t find the end zone again, and Fields made a mistake late to make the game closer than the Bears probably wanted.

With 3:50 to play, he threw an interception at the Bears\u2019 25-yard line, and the Bengals capitalized with a touchdown to pull within three points. But the Bears did just enough on their final drive to run out the clock for the victory.

Lucas Giolito was looking to avoid an early deficit.

There was no score in the bottom of the second, but the Texas Rangers were threatening with a runner on third and two outs. Giolito faced Yonny Hernandez, who was determined not to make it easy.

A 12-pitch at-bat followed, which included Hernandez fouling off eight straight.

\u201cI\u2019m throwing pitches up there, I\u2019m trying to stay in the zone,\u201d Giolito said. \u201cIt\u2019s like, \u2018Come on, man, just put it in play. Even if you get a base hit, let\u2019s move on.\u2019 \u201d

Giolito finally got Hernandez to pop out to shortstop Tim Anderson to end the inning.

\u201cThose long ABs can end up being very taxing,\u201d Giolito said. \u201cI\u2019m glad we ended up winning that one. That was a hell of a battle there, for sure.\u201d

Giolito made strides in his second start back from the injured list, pitching into the sixth inning in the Chicago White Sox\u2019s 7-2 victory Sunday in front of 24,918 at Globe Life Field.

He allowed one run on six hits with four strikeouts and one walk in 5\u2153 innings, helping the Sox take two of three in the series.

\u201cI didn\u2019t have as good stuff (Sunday), but I felt like the mix we had going was really solid. I was throwing a lot more strikes,\u201d Giolito said. \u201cIf I can go into the sixth inning \u2014 I didn\u2019t really have a good fastball, and so we\u2019re relying on that off-speed stuff, using the fastball when we needed to.

\u201cIt was a good step forward from the last one. Just continue to get more and more comfortable coming back off the IL.\u201d

The team\u2019s magic number for clinching the American League Central is four.

\u201cI feel like day games for me this year have not been the best, and for our team as a whole sometimes we come out a little bit flat on day games,\u201d Giolito said. \u201cBut today everybody was in it. Every single guy in the dugout was in it. We were chirping, we were completely in the game pitch to pitch.

\u201cI could feel that energy from the first inning. Even though we didn\u2019t score any runs (in the first), I could feel that energy, that rhythm, that tempo. That carries over and keeps momentum on our side. Today was a really good example of everybody being in the game.\u201d

The Sox took control with a five-run fourth. Yasmani Grandal homered and C\u00e9sar Hern\u00e1ndez and Jos\u00e9 Abreu had two-run singles in the inning.

Abreu, Anderson and Leury Garc\u00eda each had two hits and scored once. Garc\u00eda drove in two with a double in the seventh.

\u201cWe wanted to win the series,\u201d Anderson said. \u201cWe went out and we brought it and the bats were working today and we were able to get some runs and we were able to win the game.\u201d

The Sox were limited to three hits Saturday in a 2-1 loss. They rebounded Sunday with 10 hits.

\u201cI always feel like you put it in play and good things are going to happen,\u201d Sox manager Tony La Russa said. \u201cWe have problems when we strike out.\u201d

The Sox saw plenty of good from Giolito, who allowed three runs and struck out eight in four innings in his first start back from the IL on Sept. 14 against the Los Angeles Angels.

He was on the IL from Sept. 1-14 with a strained left hamstring.

Giolito described Sunday\u2019s outing as \u201ckind of a grinder battle.\u201d

\u201cIt felt good to get the pitch count a little bit higher (97),\u201d he said. \u201cLooking to stay in that same area, in the high 90s, low 100s, right up until playoffs.\u201d

As the postseason nears, Giolito said his body \u201cfeels really good.\u201d

\u201cI feel very rested,\u201d he said. \u201cThe IL stint kind of rested me because that injury wasn\u2019t really much of anything to begin with, so I feel like I\u2019m in a really good spot. Just building up the last two (starts) and going to be really strong going into these last couple and playoffs.\u201d

OAK PARK \u2014 Prosecutors on Sunday accused a longtime academic in sports exercise and rehabilitation of hurling racial slurs and spitting at a Black woman parked outside an Oak Park Jewel store in front of the woman\u2019s young child earlier this month.

Authorities also said Alberto Friedmann, 53, allegedly sped past the victim in his Jaguar, narrowly missing her, but intentionally striking her vehicle with his.

Friedmann, of Oak Park, was charged with aggravated assault and hate crime, both felonies, in relation to the Sept. 7 incident that happened in the parking lot at the Jewel at 438 W. Madison St. in the western suburb, according to authorities.

At a hearing broadcast on YouTube, Judge Susana Ortiz ordered Friedmann released on $2,500 bail but barred him from contacting the victim or witnesses. Friedmann\u2019s attorney denied all allegations that his client made racial statements during the incident that occurred just after 4:30 p.m.

\u201cMy client vehemently denies using any racial language. It\u2019s our position that it\u2019s fabricated that he used any such language. He\u2019s a minority himself. He\u2019s a child of immigrants,\u201d Friedmann\u2019s attorney John McNamara told the judge. \u201cThis is completely outside of his nature.\u201d

The woman and her 7-year-old daughter were in a parked car waiting for her mother to finish shopping when she heard honking and yelling behind her, according to Assistant State\u2019s Attorney Lindsay Ruedig.

After exiting his car, Friedmann is accused of yelling slurs at the victim and her daughter, Ruedig told the court. When the victim attempted to open her own door, Friedmann allegedly slammed her door shut and spit in her face, telling her he spit \u201cbecause he does not like Black people,\u201d Ruedig said.

The victim\u2019s mother exited the store in time to hear the slurs and see the offender spit at her daughter, authorities said. The victim exited her vehicle to get his license plate number but didn\u2019t see one and called out for someone to call police.

Friedmann then allegedly accelerated toward the victim, who moved out of the way and wasn\u2019t struck, Ruedig said. Friedmann\u2019s vehicle struck the woman\u2019s car twice. Eyewitnesses intervened when Friedmann exited his car a second time, and he was later arrested.

Prosecutors noted that there was store surveillance video of the incident but didn\u2019t state what could be seen in the footage.

Friedmann holds a Ph.D. in kinesiology and exercise science and neurology from the University of Missouri and a master\u2019s in kinesiology and exercise science from Southern Illinois University, according to his attorney, McNamara.

A lecturer and educator for most of his career, he currently teaches neurokinesiology at the National University of Health Sciences, his attorney said. Officials for the university were unavailable Sunday to confirm Friedmann\u2019s employment.

Two years ago, while working as an assistant professor of exercise science at Indiana State University, Friedmann was named a fellow with the Royal Society of Medicine in London.

Friedmann suffers from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, an inherited condition that causes overly flexible limbs, as well as early onset Parkinson\u2019s disease, McNamara said. His wife also suffers from a debilitating condition that requires 24-hour care. He was also featured on a segment on Discovery Health Channel, discussing the constant threat of his limbs dislocating because of his EDS condition.

The judge ordered bail, saying she \u201ccouldn\u2019t ignore\u201d the circumstances of the incident taking place in front of a child.

\u201cMay I make one statement,\u201d Friedmann asked after the judge made her ruling. \u201cDon\u2019t say anything please,\u201d his attorney answered.

He is scheduled to return to court Wednesday.

EVANSTON \u2014 Emergency crews near Evanston\u2019s Clark Street Beach found the body of a 21-year-old swimmer after a seven-hour search for the man who went missing Saturday in Lake Michigan. His body was found after three other people were saved in an earlier rescue.

While Evanston firefighters remained on the scene of the first emergency, they discovered unclaimed property of another swimmer, including shoes and clothing, and nearly 100 firefighters jumped in the water again, said Patrick Deignan, an Evanston spokesman.

The situation began about 12:55 p.m. when a 911 caller reported three people struggling in the water near Clark Street Beach, Deignan said. They were found clinging to a breakwall.

\u201cFire responded and quickly pulled all three out \u2014 a mother, her minor daughter and a good Samaritan who tried to help them,\u2019\u2019 Deignan said. The good Samaritan is an adult male.

All three were taken to hospitals, including one who was in critical condition. The others were listed in good condition and Deignan said he did not know which of them suffered the most serious injuries.

About 2 p.m., crews who were still on the scene found \u201cunclaimed belongings,\u201d including identification, of another person who was near the beach, Deignan said.

Security camera footage showed that someone entered the lake, went underwater and did not resurface, according to the Evanston Fire Department.

A \u201csecond level MABAS dive box\u201d was activated, bringing in the assistance of many neighboring towns including dozens of firefighters, divers and rescue boats.

About 4:30 p.m., the mission turned into a \u201crecovery,\u2019\u2019 Deignan said.

The man\u2019s body was found about 9 p.m., according to the fire department.

He was identified as Hussin Abdul-Samad, 21, of the 2300 block of West Devon Avenue in Chicago, according to information from the Cook County medical examiner\u2019s office. He was pronounced dead at 9:20 p.m. in the 1700 block of Sheridan Road in Evanston, near Clark Street Beach and the Cornelia Lunt Park.

Evanston officials had previously said the swimmer they located was 20; the medical examiner\u2019s office said he was 21.

\u201cIt\u2019s sad,\u2019\u2019 Deignan said. \u201cThis time of year the water can be really unpredictable, even on a beautiful day.\u201d

Clark Street Beach \u2014 along with most, if not all, Chicago-area beaches \u2014 closed for swimming for the season on Labor Day. Beaches typically reopen to the public and again are staffed with lifeguards each Memorial Day weekend.

Opportunities weren\u2019t an issue Sunday for the Quad Cities River Bandits.

Capitalizing on those chances, however, proved to be somewhat problematic.

Quad Cities stranded 13 runners on base, including nine in scoring positon, as the River Bandits dropped a 5-4, 10-inning game to South Bend at Modern Woodmen Park.

The loss in the High A Central League finale for both teams sends Quad Cities into a league championship series against Cedar Rapids beginning Tuesday with a 77-41 record.

The River Bandits built that record with a resilient approach to the game that included scoring the tying run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday before being denied a third walk-off win in the six-game series against the Cubs.

\u201cI\u2019m always confident in our ability to score runs, get guys on, move them around, but we just didn\u2019t have the big hit we needed today,\u2019\u2019 Quad Cities manager Chris Widger said.

That was especially the case in a 2-2 game in the sixth and seventh innings.

The River Bandits came away empty in both innings after loading the bases with no outs in the sixth and with one out in the seventh.

\u201cWe missed chances in a lot of innings from beginning to end. We just couldn\u2019t get it done,\u2019\u2019 Widger said.

Erasing a 3-2 lead South Bend had taken in the eighth when Edmond Americaan scored on a wild pitch, the River Bandits extended the game in the bottom of the ninth when Rubendy Jaquez scored the tying run on a sacrifice fly by Jake Means.

Jaquez had opened the inning with a single, a slow-rolling dribbler that hugged the fair side of the foul line before stopping just shy of third base. He put himself in a position to score on Means\u2019 fly ball to left by stealing both second and third.

After a walk and an error loaded the bases in the 10th, the Cubs used sacrifice flies by Yonathan Perlaza and Alexander Canario to open a 5-3 lead.

With Eric Cole on second to open the River Bandits\u2019 half of the inning, Gavin Stupienski nearly tied the game with one swing of the bat but a leaping catch at the wall by Canario in right denied him a home run chance.

Cole advanced on the play and then pulled Quad Cities within the final score on a run-scoring single to left by Parker Bates.

\u201cThis team never quits. At the end of the day, all you can ask for is a chance and this team, we\u2019re never out of a game,\u2019\u2019 Bates said. \u201cWe showed that again.\u2019\u2019

Bates stole second before potential winning run Will Hancock reached on a two-out walk, but an inning-ended groundout by Tyler Tolbert end the Bandits\u2019 comeback effort.

\u201cThe effort has never been a question with this group,\u2019\u2019 Widger said. \u201cWe had a lot of good at-bats, put the ball in play, we just didn\u2019t come up that extra run or two along the way.\u2019\u2019

Quad Cities held a 2-0 lead after four innings, with Tolbert singling in the first inning and scoring on a Nathan Eaton double to give the River Bandits an early lead.

A sacrifice fly by Hancock scored Bates in the fourth after he doubled and advanced on a passed ball.

The Cubs used the long ball to even score. Solo home runs by Jake Washer in the fifth and Yohendrick Pinango to open the sixth tied the game at 2-2 two innings before South Bend took its first lead.

CHICAGO \u2014 In the span of less than an hour early Sunday, a tow-truck driver was fatally shot while doing his job on the South Side and five people were seriously wounded in a shooting on the West Side, according to Chicago police.

Authorities first were called to the 900 block of Massasoit Avenue in South Austin around 3:05 a.m. for a report that multiple people had been shot. Five people had been sitting on a porch when a white SUV stopped in front of them and two men stepped out and opened fire at the group, according to a police media notification.

All of those injured were initially taken to hospitals in serious condition. They were:

A 20-year-old man who was shot twice in the leg and once in the arm; he was taken to Loyola University Medical Center.

Chicago police officer fatally shoots 28-year-old man

A woman, 41, who was shot once in the leg and taken to Stroger Hospital.

A man, 18, who was shot once in the back and who was taken to Stroger Hospital.

A woman, 47, who was shot twice in her left thigh and taken to Stroger Hospital.

A 42-year-old man who was shot once in the left thigh and he was taken to Stroger Hospital.

Police said the two gunmen got back into the white SUV and it took off headed west on Augusta Boulevard, and no arrests had been made.

Then, about 45 minutes later, officers were called to the 100 block of West 57th Street in Englewood for a report that a 27-year-old man had been shot.

The man was working as a tow-truck driver when he was shot multiple times, throughout his body, according to police. The man had been \u201cattempting to provide service when he was approached\u201d by someone he didn\u2019t know, who shot at him, police said.

The man was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. His name and time of death were not immediately provided by the Cook County medical examiner\u2019s office.

No arrests had been made in that homicide case and it remained under investigation, police said.

MOOSE, Wyo. (AP) \u2014 Authorities say a body discovered Sunday in Wyoming is believed to be Gabrielle \u201cGabby\u201d Petito, who disappeared while on a cross-country trek with a boyfriend who has been identified by authorities as a person of interest and is now being sought within a Florida nature preserve.

The FBI said the body was found by law enforcement agents who had spent the past two days searching campgrounds.

The cause of death had not yet been determined, said FBI Supervisory Special Agent Charles Jones.

\"Full forensic identification has not been completed to confirm 100% that we found Gabby, but her family has been notified,\" Jones said. \"This is an incredibly difficult time for (Petito's) family and friends.\"

An attorney who has been acting as a spokesman for Petito's family asked in a statement that the family be given room to grieve.

Attorney Richard Benson Stafford indicated that the family would make a public statement at a later date, and he thanked officials with the FBI, Grand Teton Search and Rescue and other agencies that participated in the search for Petito.

\u201cThe family and I will be forever grateful,\u201d Stafford said in a statement.

\"Gabby

This police camera video provided by the Moab, Utah, Police Department shows Gabrielle \u201cGabby\u201d Petito talking to a police officer after police pulled over the van she was traveling in with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, near the entrance to Arches National Park on Aug. 12, 2021. The couple was pulled over while they were having an emotional fight.

An undeveloped camping area on the east side of Grand Teton bordering national forest land will remain closed until further notice while the investigation continues, Jones said.

Jones said investigators are still seeking information from anyone who may have seen Petito or her boyfriend, Brian\u00a0Laundrie, around some camping sites located on Grand Teton National Park's eastern boundary, the same site that was the subject of law enforcement search efforts over the weekend.

Petito and Laundrie left in July on a cross-country trek in a converted van to visit national parks in the U.S. West. Police said Laundrie was alone when he drove the van back to his parents' home in North Port, Florida, on Sept. 1.

Laundrie has been identified as a person of interest in the case. He was last seen Tuesday by family members in Florida.

More than 50 law enforcement officers on Sunday started a second day of searching for Laundrie at the more than 24,000-acre Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County, Florida, a wildlife area with more than 100 miles of trails, as well as campgrounds.

Petito's family filed a missing persons report Sept. 11 with police in Suffolk County, New York.

Petito's family had been pleading for the Laundrie family to tell them where their son last saw her. Petito and Laundrie were childhood sweethearts who met while growing up on Long Island, New York. His parents later moved to North Port, about 35 miles south of Sarasota.

The couple's trek in the Ford Transit van began in July from Long Island. They intended to reach Oregon by the end of October, according to their social media accounts, but Petito vanished after her last known contact with family in late August from Grand Teton National Park, authorities said.

Police video released by the Moab Police Department in Utah showed that an officer pulled the van over on Aug. 12 after it was seen speeding and hitting a curb near the entrance to Arches National Park. The body cam video showed an emotional Petito, who sat inside a police cruiser while officers also questioned Laundrie.

Ultimately Moab police decided not file any charges and instead separated the couple for the night, with Laundrie checking into a motel and Petito remaining with the converted sleeper van.

Today's WB6 meets

Boys: Alleman High School hosts the 2021 Western Big 6 Conference meet at Indian Bluff Golf Course in Milan. Tee times begin at 10 a.m. today.

Girls: Galesburg High School hosts the 2021 Western Big 6 Conference meet at Lake Bracken Country Club in Galesburg. Tee times begin at 10 a.m. today.

Honors: The Top 12 individuals will be recognized as all-conference performers. The top six individuals will be named to the league's first team and the next six will be second team.

Boys outlook: This will be an entertaining battle as Moline, Geneseo, Galesburg and defending champion Quincy all have enough firepower to take the crown. Those four schools have been battling each other all fall with not much separating them.

Galesburg's Jason Runbom is the top returning scorer from last year's Big 6 meet. He finished second overall. Moline has a solid top four in Tommy Potter (10th last year at Big 6), Jack Curnyn, Aaron Rogers (7th last year) and Alleman transfer Andre Marriot (who was fifth last year individually for the team runner-up Pioneers). Senior Mason Steinert (9th last year at Big 6) leads a bunch of young Maple Leafs, including freshman Bryson VanHoutte and sophomore Hayden Moore. Junior Tayt Hager has played better as the season has gone along.

Girls outlook: Defending Big 6 champ Quincy has been the top team in the league all fall and looks to be the odds-on favorite to win its fifth straight league crown. The Blue Devils return the top three finishers from last year's Big 6 gathering\u00a0\u2014 Laci Novosel, Saya Geisendorfer and Paige Cain. That leaves Geneseo, Moline and Galesburg battling for second.

Individually, Novosel, now a senior, is back to defend her 2020 victory. Moline's Kacie Knary is looking to improve on her fifth-place finish as a junior. Geneseo is led by a pair of returning second-team All-Big 6 performers in Keely Nguyen and Addie Mills, who finished seventh and eighth, respectively, last season.

LAS VEGAS \u2014 After two lackluster offensive performances in its first two games, No. 14 Iowa State flew into Las Vegas with a sense of urgency.

The Cyclones flew back to Ames with some pep back in their step.

Brock Purdy completed 21 of 24 pass attempts for 288 yards and three touchdowns to lead No. 14 Iowa State over UNLV 48-3 late Saturday night.

Purdy, who also rushed for 33 yards, finished with a 229.6 quarterback rating, the third-highest of his career.

It was a major turnaround for Purdy from last week when he was benched during a 27-13 loss to in-state rival Iowa after completing 13 of 27 passes, throwing three interceptions and turning in a career-low 68.9 passer rating.

\u201cComing off last week it was rough, just the way we played, our mindset and everything,\u201d Purdy said. \u201cMy mindset, big game last week, it hurt. There was no joy, no excitement, no sense of urgency.

\u201cJust to get on the road, get away, come out here and just play football with the guys was our main mission and goal. Still some stuff we\u2019ve got to clean up, but it was a good confidence booster, for sure.\u201d

Iowa State (2-1) finished with 486 yards of offense and 7.59 yards per play, scoring on eight of its 11 possessions, including six touchdowns.

Breece Hall, who rushed for 69 yards in each of Iowa State\u2019s first two games, rushed for 70 of his 101 yards in the first quarter to lead the Cyclones\u2019 rushing attack. Hall scored two touchdowns.

Wide receiver Xavier Hutchinson, who entered the game with 110 total receiving yards this season, had 10 receptions for 133 yards and two touchdowns.

\u201cI think we played with the intensity and the sense of urgency I expected our football team to have,\u201d Iowa State coach Matt Campbell said. \u201cFor whatever reason I\u2019ve done a poor job prior to early on this week of getting that sense of urgency demanded. I put those things on my shoulders. I was proud of our leadership. I thought they responded.\u201d

As efficient as Iowa State\u2019s offense was while Campbell had his starters in the game, the defense was just as suffocating after entering the game ranked eighth with 224 yards allowed per game.

UNLV (0-3) was held to 23 yards on 18 plays in the first half and finished with 130 yards for the game.

Of UNLV's 15 plays on third and fourth downs, Iowa State allowed only two conversions. Safety Isheem Young also came down with an interception.

\u201cI\u2019ll continue to say our defense is the heart and soul of this team,\u201d Purdy added. \u201cThey got a bunch of stops, they\u2019re awesome, they\u2019re lights out.\u201d

The sense of urgency was there in all facets of the game and it allowed Iowa State\u2019s young players to get an extended run during a game.

Iowa State played its backups on defense for the entire second half and played its offensive backups for part of the third and the whole fourth quarter and some young guys shone.

The biggest breakout was true freshman running back Deon Silas. Last week against Iowa, fellow true freshman running back Eli Sanders got a lot of run, but this week it was Silas\u2019 turn.

Silas rushed five times for 32 yards and a touchdown. The running back listed at 5-foot-9 showed a lot of burst and strength for a running back his size.

\"If you would have come through spring practice and fall camp he's been a guy that's been a huge spark for our team,\u201d Campbell said. \u201cDeon got dinged during our last scrimmage, sprained his ankle. So this is really the first time he's been available to us.

\"I really think Deon's a guy that provides a totally different animal to what we do offensively. So it's great for him to get in the football game. I think he's a guy that can only continue to help our football team and certainly, I saw an offense with a different pace, and certainly a different kind of (running) back than what we have in the backfield right now.\"

Iowa State travels to Baylor for its Big 12 Conference opener Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 2:30 p.m.

SPRINGFIELD \u2014 The Illinois Commerce Commission has reached a settlement with Star Energy Partners LLC over its investigation into the alternative electric retail supplier's practices.

The ICC announced that the settlement includes $300,000 in refunds, including $275,000 to current and former customers who enrolled with Star for service from May 1 to Oct. 25, 2018.

The remaining $25,000 will be deposited into the state's Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program which financially aids low-income residents with energy bills.

The settlement resulted from a 2018 ICC investigation into allegations of misconduct by Star with customer sales, solicitation, marketing and enrollment practices.

Star admits no criminal, civil or other liability as part of the agreement. But the ICC said that the company recognizes and understands the seriousness of the alleged conduct and has agreed to remedial measures.

The Illinois attorney general and the Citizens' Utility Board also signed the agreement. It prohibits Star from conducting sales, marketing and enrollment in Illinois for two years and complying with state restrictions after that.

IOWA CITY\u00a0\u2014 Five things to think about following the fifth-ranked Iowa football team's 30-7 victory over Kent State:

1. The good

Against Indiana, the secondary led by Riley Moss' two pick sixes made the difference.

A week later at Iowa State, it was play of linebackers Jack Campbell and Seth Benson that helped decide things.

Saturday, a young and improving defensive line set a tone as the Hawkeyes sacked Kent State quarterback Dustin Crum seven times including once for a safety that provided Iowa with its first points.

Lukas Van Ness and Joe Evans, both back-ups in the rotation Iowa uses with its front four, led the way with two sacks apiece.

Collaboratively, the Hawkeyes limited Kent State's nation-leading rushing attack to a paltry 1.9 yards per carry and 79 total yards on the ground.

\"They didn't do anything too crazy, just played the way they normally do, but they are one of the best defenses in the country and showed us why,'' Kent State coach Sean Lewis said.

2. The step forward

The Iowa offense showed signs of growth Saturday, nearly doubling its offensive output from the previous week at Iowa State.

The Hawkeyes collected 418 total yards, an effort led by Tyler Goodson's career-high 153-yard effort and improved cohesion from Iowa's front five.

\"Our execution is not where it needs to be yet, and that's going to be a weekly process,'' Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said. \"... There were some good things going on kind of subtly. It was good to get Tyler running the ball a little bit better and hopefully we'll be able to improve on that weekly.''

On 38 running plays, Iowa averaged a season-best 5.4 yards as part of a balanced attack that saw the Hawkeyes 206 rushing yards complemented by 212 passing yards.

Iowa did a decent job of sustaining drives, leading to a 13-minute advantage in possession time. The overall work was far from perfect, but it was a step forward and that met the objective for Saturday.

3. The bad

Iowa's defense has some work to do as well.

The Hawkeyes gave up three pass plays of 20 yards or more, including a pair that went for more than 40 yards, during the first half of the game.

Keshunn Abram was on the receiving end of Crum's long throws, catching the ball in each of the eight times he was targeted and collecting 138 receiving yards on six receptions.

Moss got beat on a couple of those plays and something he tried to move beyond in the second half.

\"You've got to come out in the second half like its 0-0 and forget about that stuff,'' Moss said. \"We'll go over it (Sunday) in film, but in the game you just have to keep playing. You can't let that stuff get you down because it'll end up repeating and repeating.''

4. The ugly

The attention to detail that helped Iowa open the season with victories over rated Indiana and Iowa State teams was lacking at times against State.

The Hawkeyes were flagged for a season-high eight penalties for 72 yards, including a couple of flags that extended Kent State drives in the third quarter.

A roughing the passer call extended the Golden Flashes' opening drive of the quarter and a facemask moved the ball to the Iowa 12-yard line midway through the quarter on a drive that ended with Campbell forcing and Moss recovering a fumble at the goal line.

\"The penalties hurt us,'' Ferentz said. \"There's no great explanation for them other than concentration or just being out of position. Either way, that's something we have to do a better job of. They are always inopportune, but we had a couple that really hurt us.''

5. The future

Productive performances by players coming off of the bench for Iowa illustrate the team's depth and its potential moving forward.

\"We've got a lot of young guys on our football team, but we've liked what we've seen from them,'' Ferentz said. \"I've said that since January. We've really liked how they've work, all the things they do. ... They're trying, and that's one of the reasons I'm optimistic right now.''

Van Ness, a redshirt freshman defensive lineman, finished with seven tackles, two sacks and 2.5 tackles for a loss.

On offense, freshman Arland Bruce recorded the first reception of his career and freshmen running backs Gavin Williams and Leshon Williams each contributed effectively. Each carried four times with Gavin Williams gaining 17 yards and Lehon Williams picking up 13 yards.

CHICAGO \u2014 Recruiting people of color for roles in the corporate world and accountability in hiring will be discussed by chief executives and other business leaders during an event hosted by Chicago-based Diversity MBA.

The 15th Annual National Business Leaders Virtual Conference and Awards Gala will be held Wednesday and Thursday.

Hiring trends, teaching people of color seeking jobs corporate insight on how to land them and successfully climbing the corporate ladder also will be discussed during the conference.

Other topics will include social justice issues and what diversity, inclusion and equity in the workplace really looks like, and changing company culture to ensure accountability, equity and measurable progress is made.

Jobseekers also will be able to connect with representatives from companies considered the best places for women and people of color to work.

\"Our conference offers real engagement between c-suite executives from major corporations who share real-life insights, challenges and trends in diversity practices with job seekers and students to enable them to successfully navigate the career process from landing the interview, getting the job and taking their career to the next level,\" said Pamela A. McElvane, Diversity MBA chief executive.

Registration runs through Tuesday.

CHICAGO \u2014 A kind of bird that not that long ago was so rare in Illinois that people traveled hours just to catch a glimpse of one have lately been winging their way through the Chicago area.

It is a trip that means hundreds of them stop to rest near the Four Rivers Environmental Education Center in Channahon, 50 miles, southwest of Chicago. Thousands more stop for a bit about 150 miles beyond Channahon at the Emiquon National Wildlife Refuge in Lewistown.

Body of man, 20, pulled from Lake Michigan near Chicago

There are a number of reasons this might be happening. For starters, decades of wetland restoration across the country have helped increase the number of birds from about 40,000 in the 1960s to 180,000 today.

As to why Illinois has seen so many more, American Birding Association webmaster Greg Neise tells the Chicago Tribune that perhaps the birds that traditionally breed in Canada and the Great Plains and migrate to the Gulf Coast every winter started breeding in northern Wisconsin.

He said another possibility might be that all those Asian Carp that have invaded Illinois waterways in recent years are, the pelicans have discovered, good eating.

EVANSTON \u2014 The body of a 20-year-old man was pulled Saturday evening from Lake Michigan near Chicago after a seven-hour search for the missing swimmer, officials said.

Three other people were rescued from the water earlier in the day, according to Evanston spokesman Patrick Deignan.

The situation began just before 1 p.m. when a 911 caller reported three people struggling in the water. They were found hanging onto a break wall and pulled out.

Roughly an hour later, crews on the beach found \"unclaimed belongings\" of another person, which sparked the search for the fourth swimmer. Security camera footage showed the man enter the lake and go underwater before the three others went in.

His body was found around 9 p.m.

The three others were hospitalized. One person was listed in critical condition.

Evanston beaches were closed for swimming for the season earlier in the month.

Most of the movement on my ballot for this week's Associated Press is minimal and the majority comes in the middle of the ballot where five teams took losses on Saturday.

In some cases, like in Florida's 31-29 loss to top-ranked Alabama, I dropped the Gators one spot following the setback. In others, like UCLA's loss to once-beaten Fresno State, I sent the Bruins from 14th to 25th.

Alabama and Georgia still sit at 1-2, but I shuffled my top five a bit this week and moved Clemson from sixth to ninth following another pedestrian performance.

I have Oregon, Oklahoma and Texas A&M in the third through fifth spots with Iowa climbing one position to sixth, Penn State moving up from 10th to seventh following its win over Auburn and Cincinnati, Clemson and Notre Dame rounding out the top 10.

Virginia Tech, Arizona State and Miami (Fla.) all exit this week after losses, with Michigan State, Fresno State and Kansas State making debuts on my ballot. The Spartans and Wildcats are 3-0 while the Bulldogs are 3-1 with a 31-24 loss at Oregon the only blemish on the record.

Here is my ballot for this week's AP poll, which is scheduled to be released around 1 p.m. today:

1. Alabama

2. Georgia

3. Oregon

4. Oklahoma

5. Texas A&M

6. Iowa

7. Penn State

8. Cincinnati

9. Clemson

10. Notre Dame

11. Ohio State

12. Iowa State

13. Florida

14. Wisconsin

15. North Carolina

16. Coastal Carolina

17. Mississippi

18. Michigan

19. Arkansas

20. Brigham Young

21. Oklahoma State

22. Michigan State

23. Fresno State

24. Kansas State

25. UCLA

CHARLESTON \u2014 Pha'leak Brown's 3-yard touchdown run with 1:54 remaining lifted the Illinois State football team to a 31-24 nonconference victory over Eastern Illinois on Saturday as ISU coach Brock Spack reached a career milestone in the Mid-America Classic.

The win was No. 87 in 13 seasons as ISU for Spack, who set the school record for coaching victories.

\"It's a great honor to be head football coach here. I love it here and my family has loved it here,\" Spack said. \"You don't do this by yourself. Tip of the cap to the players who have been here, and I've got a great staff.\"

ISU moved to 2-1 and survived two blocked kicks and the first quarter loss of quarterback Bryce Jefferson to a shoulder injury.

The hard-charging running of Cole Mueller set up Brown's touchdown that snapped a 24-24 tie.

After the Redbird defense held, a 32-yard Aidan Bresnahan field goal try was blocked and the Panthers (0-4) had one last chance. But four straight incompletions sewed up the ISU triumph.

ISU assumed a 17-7 advantage early in the second half on a 95-yard Jarrell Jackson interception return.

Eastern clawed back for a tie on a 44-yard Stone Galloway field goal and a 7-yard runback of a blocked punt by DeArious Smith.

Redbird second string quarterback Jackson Waring tightroped the left sideline for an 8-yard touchdown with 5:21 left in the third quarter. But the Panthers struck back with a 2-yard surge from Harrison Bey-Buie after taking a direct snap.

Eastern capitalized on a Waring lost fumble to pull within 10-7 entering halftime.

The Panthers' Jason Johnson fell on Waring's unforced fumble at the ISU 33. Seven plays later, quarterback Otto Kuhns found Robbie Lofton in the back of the end zone for 5-yard touchdown.

The Redbirds seized a 7-0 lead on its opening possession, a 12-play, 75-yard procession. Nigel White covered the final 15 yards with a run to the left.

ISU, however, lost Jefferson during the drive. Jefferson initially took his pads off, has his shoulder wrapped and attempted to throw on the sideline.

Jefferson then removed his pads again in favor of a T-shirt.

The Redbirds led 10-0 when Bresnahan booted a 33-yard field goal at the 13:39 mark of the second quarter.

ISU turned away another Eastern scoring chance when Jackson's crunching hit on fourth-and-2 from the 12 sent the helmet of the Panthers' receiver into the air.

The Redbirds also lost outside linebacker Brandon Simon to a second-quarter injury. Simon was helped off the field, not putting pressure on the ankle.

Yo\u00e1n Moncada nearly had a run-scoring extra-base hit in the top of the seventh inning for the Chicago White Sox.

Right fielder Adolis Garc\u00eda kept the Texas Rangers ahead, making a leaping catch near the wall in right-center for the final out of the inning.

\u201cI thought it was a homer,\u201d Sox acting manager Miguel Cairo said. \u201cI was kind of excited, but ... it goes like that sometimes.\u201d

Hits were hard to come by for the Sox, who lost 2-1 on Saturday in front of 31,121 at Globe Life Field.

Five Rangers pitchers limited the Sox to just three hits \u2014 a Luis Robert single in the first, a Yasmani Grandal home run in the sixth and a Romy Gonz\u00e1lez single in the seventh.

\u201cWe hit the ball a few times hard,\u201d said Cairo, who subbed while Tony La Russa served a one-game suspension tied to Mike Wright Jr. throwing at Los Angeles Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani on Thursday.

\u201cWe didn\u2019t get lucky. We played hard. They just pitched a little better and they got the hit in the right moment, and we didn\u2019t capitalize a few times with men on base.\u201d

The Sox magic number for clinching the American League Central remained at five with the loss and the Cleveland Indians\u2019 11-3 victory against the New York Yankees.

\u201cWe haven\u2019t clinched yet, so everyone knows there\u2019s a lot at stake here,\u201d Sox starter Lance Lynn said. \u201cWe\u2019ve got to play good baseball down the stretch. We\u2019re in a good, comfortable lead (in the division), but it would be nice to clinch here soon so we can line things up the way we need to at the end.

\u201cWe still have some time to be able to do all that, and I like where we\u2019re at.\u201d

Lynn (10-5) was the tough-luck losing pitcher, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits with five strikeouts and two walks in 5\u2153 innings.

\u201cHe\u2019s a horse,\u201d Cairo said. \u201cHe was (at) 70 pitches when he came out for the sixth, and of course I\u2019m going to let him pitch. I\u2019m glad he\u2019s coming back to be full strength (from right knee inflammation). It was nice to see him pitch really good.\u201d

Lynn said he felt \u201cgood\u201d in the 83-pitch outing against his former team. He pitched for the Rangers in 2019 and 2020 before being traded to the Sox during the offseason.

\u201cWhenever you come back to a place you\u2019ve played, its always fun,\u201d Lynn said. .

\u201cI got up to the pitch count mark and then we\u2019re on our way to the next one, so we\u2019re in a good spot heading down the stretch.\u201d

He\u2019ll continue to work on his sinker.

\u201cThe command wasn\u2019t where I wanted it to,\u201d Lynn said. \u201cI gave up some groundball hits that just got through. But we were able to induce some double plays and some groundball outs too. It\u2019s finding that mix, each pitch, each quadrant, what you want to do and being able to physically get them where you need to.

\u201cWe\u2019re in a good spot moving forward, and next time I\u2019ll be able to go more, pitch-count-wise and go from there.\u201d

Lynn almost got a double play to get out of the fourth without allowing a run, but a video review showed that Jonah Heim narrowly beat Leury Garc\u00eda\u2019s throw to first. Andy Ib\u00e1\u00f1ez scored on the play to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead.

After Grandal\u2019s home run in the sixth tied it at 1, the Rangers went ahead in the bottom of the inning with an RBI single from pinch hitter DJ Peters against reliever Garrett Crochet.

Moncada almost provided the big hit with Gonz\u00e1lez on second for the Sox in the seventh, but Adolis Garc\u00eda made the game-saving catch. And Rangers second baseman Nick Solak leaped to snag Leury Garc\u00eda\u2019s hard liner with runners on first and second for the final out in the eighth.

\u201cWe hit balls and they caught it, and tomorrow\u2019s another day,\u201d Cairo said. \u201cI know they are going to come ready to play.\u201d

CHICAGO \u2014 Growing up in Atlanta, Megan Ross spent every spare moment climbing trees, looking under rocks and observing creatures in the pond down the street from her home.

Winter visits to her grandparents\u2019 place in New Hampshire meant hours staring out a window at a busy bird feeder and snowshoeing to a nearby beaver lodge.

The experiences set Ross on a path that reached new heights Sept. 8 when Lincoln Park Zoo announced she will become its next president and chief executive officer.

The appointment marks two firsts in the zoo\u2019s 153-year history: first female to lead the zoo and first scientist in that role.

\u201cWhen I think about being the first woman scientist leader at the zoo, what I think about is perhaps some young kids out there might realize if you love animals there\u2019s lots of different career paths. Not all of them are being a veterinarian. You can do lots of different things such as what I did, which was study animal behavior,\u201d Ross told the Chicago Sun-Times.

But there\u2019s another level of importance, she acknowledged.

\u201cThe zoo field, in general, has a large percentage of women in it,\u201d Ross said. \u201cFor example, at Lincoln Park Zoo, I think we\u2019re 68% female, and so when you\u2019re in an industry or a field where there\u2019s a lot of female representation, I would have expected there would be more female representation in the highest levels of zoos and aquariums. And there are many women who are leaders of zoos and aquariums, but I would say it\u2019s certainly not reflective of how many women are actually in the field. I think we still have a little bit of a ways to go there.\u201d

Ross, who currently runs day-to-day operations at the zoo, officially takes the reins Jan. 1 from her longtime mentor, Kevin Bell, who\u2019s 69 and plans to retire.

Bell\u2019s departure will be a loss. He\u2019s been with Lincoln Park Zoo for 45 years. Having basically grown up on the grounds of the Bronx Zoo, where his father worked, Bell knows the job in a way few others can.

But Bell has no doubt that Ross, right out of the gate, will be better at the job than he was when he took over in 1995.

The Lincoln Park Zoological Society, the nonprofit that runs the free zoo, considered a national search for a new leader but concluded it wasn\u2019t necessary.

\u201cWe knew we couldn\u2019t get anyone better,\u201d Bell said. \u201cShe is a science nerd but has the capability of talking to non-scientists. And the tough thing for any head of a nonprofit is, you have to be able to relate well to donors, and she\u2019s got the personality that will do that very well.\u201d

C. John Mostofi, board chairman of the society, said \u201cWe couldn\u2019t be more proud of the selection.\u201d

Ross received her doctorate from the Georgia Institute of Technology after conducting a study on the effects of ultraviolet light on bird behavior (birds see ultraviolet light as a fourth primary color that humans do not).

She got her \u201cdream job\u201d in 2000 as Lincoln Park Zoo\u2019s curator of birds and soon after had an \u201cAha!\u201d moment while listening to animal keepers argue about penguin aggression and whether extra rocks should be added to the habitat when it was not breeding season.

\u201cYou know, we could study that,\u201d Ross told the keepers. \u201cWe could collect data when they don\u2019t have the rocks and when they do have the rocks and see if there\u2019s more aggression,\u201d she said. \u201cAnd it was that moment that really made me feel like I had a lot to offer Lincoln Park Zoo and the zoo community in how I was approaching how we cared for animals.\u201d

Ross, 47, lives in Evanston with her husband, Steve; their 14-year-old daughter and 17-year-old son; and two dogs.

Steve Ross is a primatologist who oversees Lincoln Park Zoo\u2019s conservation work and research concerning chimpanzees and gorillas.

\u201cHe\u2019s very interested in how animals are similar to humans, and I\u2019m very interested in how animals are so different from us,\u201d Megan Ross said.

Her other interests include reading (currently a murder mystery novel), hiking, lying in a hammock in her yard, needlepoint and watching Marvel superhero shows with her family.

As for Bell, he\u2019s going to take an \u201chonest-to-goodness vacation\u201d after he retires.

Much of his previous travel consisted of going on safari with zoo donors.

\u201cIt\u2019s been a great life,\u201d he said.

Former Bears Super Bowl champion Steve \u2018Mongo\u2019 McMichael was all smiles Saturday morning as he waited to receive the first-ever annual ALS Courage Award at Soldier Field.

On his right, his wife, Misty, was holding back tears as she cradled the glass plaque in her hands. The couple wore matching black shirts with \u201cMe Mongo\u201d and \u201cMrs. Mongo,\u201d respectively.

\u201cI never thought that I could admire the man more than I already did,\u201d McMichael\u2019s former teammate Keith Van Horne said while presenting the honor. \u201cBut watching him, how he carries himself dealing with this toughest opponent that he\u2019s ever had to face, he\u2019s done it with grace and humor.\u201d

McMichael is best known as one of the beloved leaders and most colorful characters of the 1985 Bears, the only team in franchise history to win a Super Bowl. But earlier this year, the ex- defensive tackle revealed to the Tribune his diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often known as Lou Gehrig\u2019s disease, the progressive nervous system disease that is disrupting his brain\u2019s ability to communicate with his muscles.

On Saturday, during the 20th anniversary of the Les Turner ALS Foundation\u2019s Walk for Life, McMichael accepted its inaugural Courage Award before vowing that \u201cone of these days, we\u2019ll cure this.\u201d

And, staying true to his brand as a jokester, he gently poked fun at his old teammates surrounding him below the stage.

\u201cIt was these guys around me up here that taught me courage because going out and partying with them, I knew I was going to have that courage to survive it,\u201d McMichael said. \u201cSo they already taught me how to deal with ALS.\u201d

Among the hundreds in the crowd preparing for the two-mile stroll along Lake Michigan was the family of the late Eric Queyquep, who died of ALS in 2012 at the age of 46. His wife, Ninfa Queyquep, said she has brought her sizable team to the Walk for Life event every year since 2010. When COVID-19 interrupted the annual tradition last year, her family did the walk on their own in their hometown of Bensenville, Illinois.

\u201cIt\u2019s nice to see the whole community this year,\u201d Queyquep, 51, said. \u201cBeing together, seeing others, the other families and others that are battling ALS, it kind of reminds you why you\u2019re here and why you\u2019re walking.\u201d

The goal of the walk is to raise money for the Les Turner ALS Foundation. But ahead of the kickoff Saturday, the nonprofit\u2019s CEO Andrea Pauls Backman said ultimately, organizers like her want to see a day when such an event is no longer needed.

As of Saturday afternoon, the event had raised $435,000 of its $600,000 goal and saw about 3,000 attendees.

\u201cMy mother was diagnosed in 2006,\u201d Pauls Backman said. \u201cThere weren\u2019t a lot of options at that point either, but I made a promise to her that I was going to work in this community and we were going to make a difference in this disease. So thank you for helping fulfill my promise to my mother.\u201d

Another walker, Anne Zager from Lisle, said she felt \u201cmixed emotions\u201d while waiting for the walk to start. She lost her father to ALS this May.

\u201cMy dad ran out of time,\u201d Zager, 36, said. \u201cBut that doesn\u2019t mean that we can\u2019t still raise money and hope.\u201d

CHICAGO \u2014 A toddler who was inside a home in the Calumet Heights neighborhood when he was shot was among several people wounded during Saturday attacks, police said.

About 10:45 a.m. the 3-year-old boy was in residence in the 9300 block of South Escanaba Avenue when he was shot in the back, according to a police media notification.

The boy was taken first to Trinity Hospital and then to Comer Children\u2019s Hospital, where he was listed in good condition.

In separate shootings Saturday, three men were left in critical condition, police said. The latest of those attacks happened shortly before 1 p.m. in the 500 block of North Leamington Avenue in the Austin neighborhood.

Police said a 37-year-old man was standing on the street when someone drove past and fired in his direction, shooting him in his side. He was taken to Stroger Hospital, police said.

Shortly before 11:30 a.m., a 21-year-old man was shot in the Uptown neighborhood.

Police said the he was inside of a vehicle in the 900 block of West Montrose Avenue when someone in an SUV began to fire shots, striking him in the back. The man got himself to Weiss Memorial Hospital where he was listed in critical condition, police said.

Shortly before 10:45 a.m., a 22-year-old man was inside a residence in the 8200 block of South Wentworth Avenue when he heard shots from outside and felt pain. He was struck in the abdomen, and was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Detectives were investigating.

CHICAGO - A DePaul University student was stabbed during a robbery outside a North Side bar early Saturday, according to Chicago police and the university.

Just after 2 a.m., the 19-year-old male student was in a bar in the 900 block of West Webster Avenue in the Sheffield Neighbors neighborhood when he first saw the two people who later robbed him, according to Chicago police. When the student left the bar, the two followed him outside, hit him in the face and demanded that he hand over his belongings.

When the 19-year-old tried to fight back, one of them stabbed him in the left buttock with an \u201cunknown cutting instrument,\u201d police said. The two then took his items and left.

The student was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in good condition, police said.

No arrests have been made, and the attack is under investigation, police said.

In a statement from DePaul\u2019s vice president of student affairs, Eugene Zdziarski, II, and director of public safety, Bob Wachowski, the university confirmed the 19-year-old attended the university and said its student affairs staff is \u201cproviding all possible support to the student and their family.\u201d

The attack did not occur on the university\u2019s campus, but there have been incidents \u201cthat have occurred recently\u201d on and around its Loop and Lincoln Park campuses that \u201craise important concerns\u201d for the university, the statement said.

\u201cIn light of the recent criminal activity on and around our campuses, DePaul Public Safety officers will be on heightened alert during their campus patrols,\u201d the statement said.

The statement said that students can use its \u201cSafety Escort Service,\u201d which is a free service that is available daily from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. within the boundaries of the Lincoln Park Campus. An escort may be obtained by calling (773) 325-7233 or ext. 5-7233 from a university house telephone.

Emergency crews near Clark Street Beach in Evanston found the body of a 20-year-old male swimmer who went missing Saturday evening in Lake Michigan after a seven-hour search. His body was found after three other people were saved in an earlier rescue.

While Evanston firefighters remained on the scene of the first emergency, they discovered unclaimed property of another swimmer, including shoes and clothing, and nearly 100 firefighters jumped in the water again, said Patrick Deignan, an Evanston spokesman.

The situation began about 12:55 p.m. when a 911 caller reported three people struggling in the water near Clark Street beach, Deignan said. They were found clinging to a breakwall.

\u201cFire responded and quickly pulled all three out \u2014 a mother, her minor daughter and a good Samaritan who tried to help them,\u2019\u2019 Deignan said. The good Samaritan is an adult male.

All three were taken to hospitals, including one who was in critical condition. The others were listed in good condition and Deignan said he did not know which one was badly injured.

About 2 p.m., crews who were still on the scene found \u201cunclaimed belongings,\u201d including identification, of another person who was near the beach, Deignan said.

Security camera footage showed that someone entered the lake, went underwater and did not resurface, according to the Evanston Fire Department.

A \u201csecond level MABAS dive box\u201d was activated bringing in the assistance of many neighboring towns including dozens of firefighters, divers and rescue boats.

About 4:30 p.m., the mission turned into a \u201crecovery,\u2019\u2019 Deignan said.

The man\u2019s body was found about 9 p.m., according to the fire department.

\u201cIt\u2019s sad,\u2019\u2019 Deignan said. \u201cThis time of year the water can be really unpredictable, even on a beautiful day.\u201d

Clark Street Beach was closed on Labor Day.

URBANA \u2014 Fall armyworm caterpillars are enjoying a bountiful meal at the expense of farmers and homeowners. Prevalent in the southern states, the adult moths move north to Illinois to mate and lay eggs.

This year\u2019s appearance is earlier and in higher numbers, says Nick Seiter, University of Illinois Extension field crops entomologist. In addition to costly attack on alfalfa, pastures, soybeans, corn, and small grains, the larvae of the moth are infesting lawns and gardens.

Fall armyworms (Spodoptera frugiperda) can be found in the Midwest nearly every year, but this year, multiple generations of fall armyworms in southern Florida, southern Texas, and Central and South America created a larger than normal population of moths that moved to Midwestern states in late summer, says Katie Parker, Illinois Extension local foods small farms educator. The moths lay eggs which then develop into the caterpillar larva that feed on crops, gardens, and lawns.

The caterpillars may appear green, brown, or black in color, with white to yellow lines running along its back from head to tail and an inverted \u201cY\u201d between the eyes. Four black spots form a square near the top back of the caterpillar. Caterpillars begin at less than 1/8 inch and can quickly grow to 1.5 inches after two weeks of feeding.

\u201cWith a large appetite and their habit of \u2018marching\u2019 in large numbers, fall armyworms can do some damage in just a few days,\u201d Parker says.

After feeding, caterpillars tunnel about one inch into the soil and enter the pupal stage from which a moth emerges after about 10 days, and the cycle repeats.

Moths are grey with a pattern of light and dark areas and a wingspan of about 1.5 inches. Moths are more active at night, feeding on nectar and depositing eggs.

A female moth can deposit up to 2,000 eggs with four to five generations per year. Armyworms overwinter in the south. Southern populations increase in early spring with future generations moving north as the season progresses.

Illinois Extension horticulture educator Kelly Allsup recommends homeowners soak dead lawn spots with soap and water.

\u201cAdd one tablespoon of liquid dish soap to one gallon of water and pour over one square foot of grass,\u201d Allsup instructs. \u201cArmyworms crawl to the surface within seconds. Even two or three caterpillars can do substantial damage.\u201d

This year\u2019s damage is likely due to our wet and cool growing conditions, Allsup says. Severe cases may need to be treated with insecticides to control the caterpillars. One should also apply additional water to lawns to force the regrowth. Fall armyworm larvae are controlled by the same insecticides used to control sod webworms.

Damage to corn can occur as ragged-edged holes on leaves, tassels, or ears. Caterpillars will also feed on the kernels of the ear.

\u201cIn turf, hayfields, or pasture, the damage often appears as brown or burned out patches and can often be confused with drought damage,\u201d says Parker. \u201cScouting in the cool part of the day when the caterpillars are actively feeding will allow you to determine the size and number of fall armyworms to help decide control strategies.\u201d

Fall armyworm infestation is best controlled when caterpillars are \u00bd inch or smaller. If pyrethroid insecticides are used, make applications early in the morning or later in the evening when larvae are most active.

\u201cControl failure with the use of pyrethroids has been reported in the southern U.S. this year, and a few similar reports have come in from Illinois,\u201d Seiter says. \u201cIndividuals should consider alternatives to pyrethroids if an application is warranted, though these alternatives often come with an increased control cost.\u201d

Illinois Extension leads public outreach for University of Illinois by translating research into action plans that allow Illinois families, businesses, and community leaders to solve problems, make informed decisions, and adapt to changes and opportunities.

Consumers are expected to be in the mood to spend this holiday season, but this isn\u2019t the year to procrastinate.

With the COVID-19 pandemic snarling supply chains and threatening to leave stores and distribution centers short-staffed, consumers may need to shop early to avoid missing must-have items. Big discounts, too, could be tougher to come by, thanks to higher transportation and labor costs.

\u201cCOVID-19 is going to be the Grinch that stole Christmas yet again this year,\u201d said Per Hong, senior partner in the consulting firm Kearney\u2019s strategic operations practice.

Holiday retail sales are projected to rise between 7% and 9% this year, hitting $1.3 trillion, according to a forecast from Deloitte. The delta variant hasn\u2019t slowed spending, and there\u2019s \u201chuge pent-up demand,\u201d said Curt Bimschleger, managing director at Deloitte.

The challenge for retailers will be meeting that demand in a year when disruptions are hitting every step of the supply chain, from recent factory shutdowns in Asia to control the spread of COVID-19 to logjams at ports that lengthen shipping times to shortages of warehouse workers and truck drivers.

Retailers have been working to get ahead of the disruptions but \u201cprobably not as successfully as they\u2019d want to be,\u201d said Rick Maicki, managing director at Berkeley Research Group Corporate Finance.

Companies like Walmart and Target say they have at least 20% more inventory than last year. Still, the disruptions could make it tougher for retailers to restock items once they run out.

\u201cIf you see something you want \u2026 you\u2019ll want to pull the trigger earlier, because you don\u2019t know if it\u2019s going to be there later,\u201d Maicki said. \u201cThe flow of product is uncertain.\u201d

Supply chain issues have hit everything from toilet paper to chicken wings to semiconductors since the start of the pandemic and are still affecting a wide variety of products across industries. But retailers and manufacturers are also starting to face challenges with popular gift items like toys, books and apparel.

German games, toys and puzzles maker Ravensburger warned retailers in North America it would stop taking new orders Friday as it contends with record-high demand and delays transporting goods to and within the U.S.

\u201cAt this point we feel optimistic that we will deliver on all existing commercial commitments that we have made this year, but we did not want to put our retailers\u2019 holiday business in jeopardy by continuing to accept new orders that we do not feel confident about delivering in time,\u201d said Filip Francke, CEO of Ravensburger North America and global head of games.

Ravensburger hopes to resume taking orders in the fourth quarter, Francke said. In the meantime, the company is paying for premium shipping services and expanding its production in Europe, where supply chains are experiencing fewer delays than those between the U.S. and Asia, Franke said. Ravensburger is also working with U.S. warehouse partners to offer more incentives and training to help attract employees.

Rick Derr, owner of Learning Express Toys in Lake Zurich, said he appreciated the notice Ravensburger gave so he could get orders in early.

Even with the supply chain disruptions, Derr said he isn\u2019t worried about having empty shelves this holiday season. While about half the toy manufacturers he placed preorders with are delivering products four to six weeks late, he still expects they will arrive in plenty of time for the holidays.

Still, he encouraged parents to shop early.

\u201cThis isn\u2019t crying wolf this year,\u201d he said. \u201cThis is my 26th Christmas and nothing has been so built up as this, but this time it\u2019s real.\u201d

Books are seeing disruptions too, particularly when it comes to illustrated books that are typically printed overseas.

Representatives selling those titles told Mary Mollman, owner of Near West Side bookstore Madison Street Books, to order everything she thought she needed upfront, because they weren\u2019t sure they\u2019d be able to deliver more copies, Mollman said.

The bookstore, which held its grand opening days before the first pandemic shutdown in spring 2020, has had some \u201ctouch and go moments\u201d trying to stay afloat and typically tries to order conservatively, Mollman said. This year she\u2019s placed some bigger orders for highly anticipated titles to avoid being caught short-handed over the holidays and encourages customers to shop early or preorder.

Other large companies cited concerns about apparel and footwear.

Both Lululemon and Dick\u2019s Sporting Goods cited challenges with factories in Vietnam facing COVID-19-related closures on top of the longer shipping times, according to recent earnings calls and investor conferences.

Both retailers said they are shipping some products by air to avoid delays, and Lululemon is shifting some production out of Vietnam.

Walmart and Target chartered ships just for their goods in hopes of trimming transit times. Both are placing larger orders earlier in the season, though Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said at an investor conference earlier this month that the company \u201cwould take even more inventory if we could get it, especially in some categories.\u201d

McMillon said the supply chain disruption is \u201cmore dramatic\u201d than he can remember. \u201cThere have been various challenges, but not anything like this.\u201d

The supply chain issues could make big holiday discounts more scarce.

Transportation costs have \u201cexploded,\u201d said Douglas Kent, executive vice president of the Chicago-based Association for Supply Chain Management. Companies are paying as much as 10 times more to transport a shipping container\u2019s worth of goods than they did two years ago, and shortages of workers are pushing wages up, he said.

\u201cSomebody has to pay for that,\u201d he said.

While supply chain companies are trying to recruit more truck drivers and port and warehouse workers, retailers are scrambling to staff up ahead of the holiday rush. Amazon, Kohl\u2019s, Dick\u2019s Sporting Goods and Gurnee Mills mall all held hiring events in recent days.

Retailers have made fewer big seasonal hiring announcements than usual, but that\u2019s likely because many have been in hiring mode for months, said Andy Challenger, vice president at Chicago-based outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

The firm expects retailers to add about 700,000 workers this holiday season.

In addition to the usual push to hire for the holiday rush, retailers are still catching up to pre-pandemic employment levels, Challenger said. There were 278,100 fewer people working in the sector in August compared with the same month two years ago.

\u201cWith a labor market with thousands of open jobs apart from holiday demand, that creates a real threat to the health of the business,\u201d said Shannon Warner, a partner in consulting firm Kearney\u2019s consumer practice.

Many retailers have been boosting pay to attract employees. Lululemon, which announced plans to hire 8,000 people in North America last month, including more than 100 in Chicago, said it will raise minimum wages to $15 or $17, depending on the employee\u2019s role and location.

Dick\u2019s Sporting Goods, which recently said it plans to hire 480 seasonal employees in the Chicago area and 10,000 nationwide, had two wage increases over the past year that collectively made for \u201cupper single digits to low double digit kind of wage increases,\u201d Chief Financial Officer Lee Belitsky said during an earnings call last month.

Others are offering bigger-than-usual signing bonuses, like Amazon, which is looking to hire 7,700 employees in Illinois as part of 125,000 new transportation and fulfillment jobs nationwide, on top of 75,000 new jobs the company announced in May. The Illinois jobs have an average starting wage of $16 per hour and can come with bonuses of up to $3,000 in certain locations, including the company\u2019s warehouse in Monee.

Kohl\u2019s, which is looking to fill nearly 1,800 open jobs in the Chicago area, is also dangling bonuses of $100 to $400 for employees who work through the holiday season.

An end to federal unemployment benefits earlier this month could push some people into the workforce, but it likely won\u2019t prompt an \u201cimmediate bounce back,\u201d Warner said.

People are still concerned about the delta variant and navigating child care issues, and workers have more options than they used to because so many industries have openings. That could be a hurdle for retailers, whose jobs may be more difficult than usual because of increased conflict with customers, particularly around mask policies, or a shift to online shopping that has store employees rushing to fill orders, Warner said.

Still, Amazon said Friday it received more than 500,000 applications for U.S. corporate, technology and hourly jobs since Sept. 1.

Hiring needs aren\u2019t limited to retailer\u2019s stores and warehouses. Package carriers UPS, FedEx and the U.S. Postal Service plan to hire 100,000, 90,000 and 40,000 seasonal employees, respectively, after a 2020 holiday season marked by shipping delays as consumers did even more of their holiday shopping than usual online.

UPS is offering weekly retention bonuses in certain areas including Chicago, where it aims to hire 5,000 people ahead of the holidays. It\u2019s also emphasizing the potential to turn a seasonal job into a permanent role and streamlined the application process to make conditional job offers in as little as 30 minutes, said spokesman Dan McMackin.

This year\u2019s job market is the tightest the company has seen, and unusually unpredictable, McMackin said.

\u201cIt\u2019s going to be a challenge, but I think our experience \u2026 will carry the day,\u201d he said.

ST. LOUIS \u2014 With the San Diego Padres squabbling amongst themselves, the St. Louis Cardinals rallied to solidify their postseason position.

Tyler O'Neill hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning and the Cardinals came back to beat the Padres 3-2 Saturday night after San Diego stars Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr. had a dugout dustup.

The Cardinals pulled two games ahead of Cincinnati for the second and final NL wild card, with San Diego and Philadelphia 2 1/2 games behind.

Padres starter Yu Darvish dominated the Cardinals over seven innings, allowing three hits and striking out nine. He handed a 2-0 lead over to the bullpen, but reliever Emilio Pag\u00e1n (4-2) couldn't get through the eighth.

Tommy Edman scored Harrison Bader on a sacrifice fly to make it 2-1 before O'Neill drove his 28th homer of the season for a one-run lead. Giovanny Gallegos worked a perfect ninth inning for his ninth save.

\u201cHe\u2019s had several moments like that where he\u2019s hit a dramatic home run for us to go up late in a game,\u201d Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright said about O'Neill. \u201cHe's got a good approach. He knows his strengths. That's what's called growing up in the clubhouse right there.\u201d

Machado shouted and cursed at Tatis during a dugout tirade in the fifth, telling the young star \u201cit's not about you\u201d and \u201cyou go play baseball\u201d after Tatis struck out looking in the inning. Tatis reacted angrily to the call by plate umpire Phil Cuzzi, and manager Jayce Tingler was ejected when he came out of the dugout to argue.

The 29-year-old Machado and 22-year-old Tatis were separated by teammates during the incident, which came at the end of the top of the fifth. They eventually made their way to their positions \u2014 Machado at third, Tatis at short.

\u201cIt\u2019s not viewed negatively,\u201d Tingler said. \u201cWe\u2019re a family. We\u2019re not going to discuss the details, but we care. There\u2019s passion. There\u2019s frustration. Those are all emotions that are natural, and those things happen.\u201d

O'Neill also had some words for Cuzzi after striking out looking in the fourth and sixth innings.

\u201cSome pitches were off the plate,\u201d O'Neill said. \u201cI think the biggest thing for me was staying locked in and not giving it away. It was the biggest at bat of the night there in the eighth inning so I had to hunker down and stay locked in.\u201d

San Diego scored both of its runs on four singles off Wainwright in the fourth inning. Wainwright allowed two runs on seven hits in six innings in his 303rd career start with Yadier Molina behind the plate.

\u201cWe\u2019re frustrated, upset, and laying it all out there,\" Tingler said. \u201cTo come up a run short, we\u2019re all playing for the same thing. It\u2019s baseball. These things happen, and it can quickly turn. We need it to turn quick.\u201d

Kodi Whitley and Justin Miller (1-0) each pitched a scoreless inning before Gallegos closed out.

REUNION TIME

The Cardinals hosted members of the 2011 World Series championship team for a 10th reunion celebration. Game 7 starting pitcher Chris Carpenter and World Series MVP David Freese were among the attendees.

TRAINER\u2019S ROOM:

Padres: INF Jake Cronenworth (fractured finger) returned to the starting lineup after appearing as a defensive replacement Friday night.

Cardinals: RHP Jack Flaherty (right shoulder strain) threw a pregame bullpen session. ... RHP Dakota Hudson (torn right UCL) could be activated from the injured list in the upcoming week after throwing a bullpen session Sunday or Monday.

UP NEXT

San Diego will start RHP Jake Arrieta (5-13, 7.05 ERA), who is 0-3 with an 8.25 ERA since signing with the Padres on Aug. 16. Cardinals LHP J.A. Happ (9-8, 6.00 ERA) will face San Diego for the first time since July 16, 2012 with Houston when he tossed 6 1/3 scoreless innings.

MILWAUKEE \u2014 Manny Pi\u00f1a homered twice, Eduardo Escobar and Jace Peterson also connected, and the Milwaukee Brewers clinched their fourth straight postseason berth with a 6-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night.

The Brewers won for the seventh time in nine games to ensure themselves at least a wild card after San Diego and Cincinnati lost earlier in the day. Milwaukee's magic number to lock up the NL Central title is three over St. Louis.

\u201cThere will be a little bit of celebrating tonight,\u201d said Brewers starter and NL Cy Young Award contender Corbin Burnes. \u201cBut the main celebration is going to be when we clinch the division.\u201d

Burnes was shaky by his standards in his first start since throwing eight innings in a combined no-hitter a week ago. He allowed three runs and six hits over six innings, striking out 11.

The right-hander gave up Ian Happ's 23rd homer with a man on in the fifth. It was the first homer allowed by Burnes since Aug. 6, when San Francisco's Brandon Belt took him deep.

\u201cYou\u2019re not going to be perfect every night, so sometimes that zero in the sixth is still a huge part of a game that helps you win a ball game,\u201d Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. \u201cThat\u2019s what he did tonight.\u201d

Pi\u00f1a, Milwaukee\u2019s backup catcher, scored the first run of the night when he sent Justin Steele\u2019s first pitch of the second inning to center. Escobar followed with a solo shot to lead off the third, snapping a 1-1 tie.

Burnes left the game with a 3-2 lead thanks to a solo home run by Peterson to lead off the sixth, but the Cubs tied it an inning later when Willson Contreras, who was robbed of a home run by Lorenzo Cain in the second, tagged Brad Boxberger for a two-out solo shot that made it a 4-4 game.

Pi\u00f1a struck again from the leadoff spot in the eighth, sending an 0-2 slider from Scott Effross (2-1) down the left field line. Kolten Wong added an insurance run later in the inning, driving in Pablo Reyes on an infield single.

\u201cI wasn\u2019t sure if it was fair or foul,\" Pi\u00f1a said. \u201cSo I was using my body to say, \u2018Stay in! Stay in!\u2019 That was a good swing, good contact.\u201d

Devin Williams (8-2) pitched a scoreless eighth and Josh Hader stranded a pair of runners in the ninth for his 33rd save.

UNFRIENDLY CONFINES

Saturday marked the second straight night the Cubs' bullpen allowed an eighth-inning rally, but Cubs manager David Ross was impressed with the way his team kept pressure on Hader in the ninth, putting the go-ahead run in scoring position.

\u201cWe\u2019ve given ourselves a chance to win both these nights,\u201d Ross said. \u201cIt hasn\u2019t turned out and it (stinks) for sure but for us to have (runners on) second and third with a chance to tie this thing up in the ninth, I was proud.\u201d

The loss was the Cubs\u2019 11th in a row to the Brewers, who have won 15 of the first 18 meetings between the teams this season and sixth in a row at American Family Field where they are 1-6 in 2021.

PINEAPPLE POWER

Pi\u00f1a\u2019s multi-homer game continued an impressive run for the Brewers\u2019 backup catcher who took the took the field Saturday batting .310 (18 for 58) with five home runs and 22 RBIs over his last 22 games.

\u201cHe\u2019s turning in his best offensive season,\u201d Counsell said. \u201cIt\u2019s not been done with batting average but with power and home runs and driving in runs. He\u2019s having a tremendous season and tonight capped it off.\u201d

JUST ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE

Were it not for the display on the video board, the 33,625 fans on hand Saturday night might not have even realized Milwaukee clinched a playoff berth.

There was hardly any celebration after Hader struck out Patrick Wisdom to end the game other than the usual post-game handshakes heading back to the dugout, but the muted response was by design as the Brewers opted to hold off until they\u2019ve locked up the NL Central title, which they could do as early as Monday when the Cardinals come to Milwaukee for a four-game series.

\u201cWe\u2019ve put the ability to win the division in our control,\u201d Counsell said. \u201cThat\u2019s our goal and we\u2019re sticking to that goal. We know that we\u2019re in the playoffs and everybody is thrilled with that, but we feel like we\u2019ve earned the right to wait until we win this division.\u201d

TRAINER\u2019S ROOM

Cubs: INF Nico Horner arrived in Milwaukee on Saturday and took part in batting practice but won\u2019t be activated until Sunday, ahead of Chicago\u2019s series finale against the Brewers. Horner has been out since late July with an oblique strain. Ross plans to make Hoerner the everyday starter at shortstop in an effort to evaluate the progress of the 2018 first-round pick who was limited to just 39 games due to injuries this season.

Brewers: OF Avisail Garcia (back spasms) was held out of the lineup for a third straight game. Counsell had hoped to have Garcia back Saturday, but after an evaluation, the medical staff decided Garcia wasn\u2019t at the point they\u2019d hoped.

UP NEXT

The rivals wrap up their 2021 season series Sunday when Cubs RHP Adrian Sampson (1-2, 2.53 ERA) faces off against Milwaukee left-hander Eric Lauer (6-5, 3.10).

ANAMOSA, Iowa \u2014\u00a0A man serving a life sentence for a Scott County crime died Saturday at the Anamosa State Penitentiary.

According to a release from the prison, 69-year-old Robert David Wilcoxen was pronounced dead at 7:15 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2021, at the Anamosa State Penitentiary.\u00a0

Wilcoxen was serving a life sentence since April 7, 1995, following a conviction for kidnapping 1st degree in Scott County.

According to JUSTIA.com, Wilcoxen originally was charged with two counts of second-degree sexual abuse and first-degree kidnapping. He allegedly lured a 6-year-old to a secluded location in Davenport and forced the girl to perform multiple sex acts. He pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree sexual abuse, and was found guilty on the remaining charges during a jury trial.

\"Wilcoxen's jury trial conviction of second-degree sexual abuse merged with his first-degree kidnapping conviction as provided by Iowa Code section 701.9 (conviction of lesser-included offense merges with conviction of greater offense),\" according to the website. \"Wilcoxen was sentenced to a life term on the kidnapping conviction and an indefinite 25-year term on his guilty plea sexual abuse conviction.\"

Wilcoxen appealed the conviction of the first-degree kidnapping charge but not the sexual-abuse convictions. His appeal was denied on March 27, 1996, by the Court of Appeals of Iowa.

If those in the Augustana College football program had a sleepless night on Saturday it was probably because of one phrase repeatedly going through their heads.

\u201cMissed opportunities.\u201d

Those were the first words out of coach Steve Bell's mouth after his club dropped a heartbreaking 27-21 overtime decision to Millikin in Saturday's CCIW opener at Lindberg Stadium.

The Vikings missed three field goals\u00a0\u2014 a 25-yarder in the third quarter, a 22-yarder on the final play of regulation that could have won the game and finally a 43-yarder to end the first possession of overtime.

Two of Sidney Maroon's kicks had plenty of leg but missed wide right, with the other being blocked.

The toughest one of those to take was Maroon's first attempt on the final play of regulation. A good snap and hold allowed Maroon to make the 22-yarder from the left hash that would have won the game, but officials blew the play dead.

There was no signal for a Millikin timeout and teams never left their spots as they would for a timeout. Bell said he was never informed of a timeout being called.

Maroon's second attempt was blocked by Millikin standout receiver Colton Lockwood, who then became a big factor in the overtime session as well.

After Augie's first attempt in OT came up empty on the missed field goal attempt, the Big Blue faced a third-down after two running plays were sniffed out and netted just a yard.

Following a Millikin timeout, Lockwood became the target of what turned out to be the game-winning pass.

The Vikings had done a decent job containing the 6-foot-3, 220-pound senior, who finished with six catches for 133 yards and two scores but was targeted 14 times by senior QB Cal Pohrte, who threw for 202 yards as part of MU's 395 yards offense.

\u201cThat's a big dude,\u201d said Bell of Lockwood. \u201cYou knew they were going to look for him and our guy wasn't in bad position.\u201d

Locked in single coverage, the Vikings even had a safety flying to the ball to make a play on the pass headed toward back left corner of the end zone.

It wasn't enough.

\u201cWe had a couple of different options on that play and if we got the 1 on 1, just throw it up,\u201d said Lockwood. \u201cCal threw a beautiful ball and the rest was the game.\u201d

And it was another one of \u201cthose games\u201d between these two. It seems as if something unusual always happen\u00a0\u2014 weather, four-overtime contests, etc. \u2014 when they meet and that was, indeed, the case again Saturday before a huge Family Weekend crowd.

Tyson Roedl (33 carries, 133 yards) gave the Big Blue a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, but the Vikings bounced back in the second quarter to take a 14-7 lead.

First, Ty Rivelli's 4-yard burst capped a 10-play, 70-yard march orchestrated by first-year QB Thomas Hall with Maroon's PAT kick tying things at the 13:32 mark.

Then Craig Shelton, a play after being called out of bounds on what was a good TD catch, grabbed Hall's next pass for a score with 4:02 left to give Augie its first lead of the game.

With Augie's defense containing the MU passing game, the Big Blue turned to the ground game out of the locker room and relied on the diminutive Roedl to move the ball 75 yards in nine plays with Lockwood catching his first TD of the night, a 12-yard strike that was followed by a botched PAT kick.

But the Vikings again answered after the TD with a six-play, 57-yard drive that culminated with Hall's 17-yard pass to Bobby Inserra that gave Augie a 21-13 lead after Maroon's PAT kick with 6:49 left in the third.

Two Nick Harper interceptions ended MU's next drives around the missed 25-yard Augie field goal.

On the next-to-last possession of regulation, Millikin drove 70 yards in 17 plays, aided by a pass interference call on Augie in the end zone on a fourth-down pass intended for Lockwood. Three plays later, Lontas McClinton scored from a yard out to make it 21-19 with 1:21 left on the clock.

On the two-point conversion, Pohrte hit a wide open Jahlil Lipkin on a crossing route at the line of scrimmage to tie the game ahead of Augie's final drive, which included a 49-yard completion from Hall to Casey Erickson that moved the ball to the MU 5.

Then, a final oddity struck the Vikings and the decisive OT ensued.
