Tyreek Hill's three scores lead Chiefs to 38-28 week one win
Posted on 9 September 2018 at 10:59pm
CARSON, Calif - After an offseason of wondering if new quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the real deal, Mahomes proved to be that and more in his first outing. He tossed four touchdown passes to power the Chiefs to a 38-28 week one win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
When Tyreek Hill is on your football team, it makes playing quarterback a lot easier. With Mahomes all lined up for his first offensive possession after the defense forced a three and out, one of the fastest men in football, Hill, displayed his speed with a 91 yard punt return touchdown that put the Chiefs up 7-0 just two minutes into the game. It was Hill’s fourth punt return touchdown in 32 games. Hill was far from finished though, as he took a slant pattern from Mahomes 58 yards for a touchdown on the Chiefs first real drive. Hill caught a one yard shovel pass touchdown for his third touchdown of the game in the fourth and finished the contest with seven grabs and 169 yards receiving, along with 268 all-purpose yards.
Tigers take two of three from Cardinals behind pair of walk-off wins
Posted on 9 September 2018 at 10:33pm
Detroit - The St. Louis Cardinals entered the weekend with an opportunity to put real distance between themselves and the competition in the National League Wild Card race. The Cardinals traveled to Detroit to take on a rebuilding Tigers club that has been one of the worst in baseball this season. Two walk off wins by the Tigers in the first two games of the series destroyed any designs the Cards had on distancing themselves from the field in the National League.
Jeimer Candelario blasted a two run walk off home run to boost the Tigers to a 5-3 win on Friday night. Candelario’s homer overshadowed Marcell Ozuna’s second multi home run game of the week for St. Louis.

Minneapolis - The Kansas City Royals are continuing to develop their young players as the regular season winds down. As with any rebuild, there will inevitably be many bumps in the road. A three game September road set in Minnesota represents the type of series the Royals hope will be a crucial one in future AL Central division title races. This season though, the series is merely a chance for both clubs to get valuable experience for their up and coming young players with the Cleveland Indians running away with the Central.
Rookie starter Heath Fillmyer has shown great progress in his last two outings, but Friday was much different as the Twins rocked him for six runs in just 2.1 innings on their way to a 10-6 victory. Second year outfielder Jorge Bonifacio had three hits for Kansas City.

The senior quarterback is known for his gaudy passing numbers, and he added to them against the Cowboys, completing 33 of 45 passes for 398 yards. He added a career-high 51 rushing yards, which was almost half of his total for all of last season.
