MADISON, Wis. – Silver linings were all Oregon State could cling to after its 35-0 beatdown by eighth-ranked Wisconsin on Saturday.

Sean Mannion had a nice day passing and OSU’s defense was sound and game against a Wisconsin team that came in ranked second nationally in total offense.

If not for some brain farts by the special-teams unit, in fact, the Beavers (0-2), who entered the game as three-touchdown underdogs, might have made it interesting.

Instead, the Badgers (2-0) marched to a rather perfunctory win, their 11th straight at Camp Randall Stadium while improving their home record to 43-4 since 2004.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fl. -- Inch by inch, little by little, the Rays are proving they still have a legitimate chance at making the playoffs.

After closer Kyle Farnsworth suffered his second straight blown save when Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Jacoby Ellsbury hit back-to-back home runs in the ninth inning to force extras, the Rays got a walk-off single in the 11th inning from Evan Longoria to post a 6-5 victory over the Red Sox on Saturday night.

SAN FRANCISCO, Ca. -- Ryan Vogelsong received the prestigious Willie Mac Award on Friday night, earning recognition for his remarkable comeback that has inspired people on and off the field. But nothing has been able to inspire the Giants to score any runs for Vogelsong lately, and that remained true Saturday.

San Francisco couldn't get anything going against Dodgers lefty Dana Eveland as Vogelsong suffered his fifth straight loss, a 3-0 defeat at AT&T Park. During his five-game losing streak, Vogelsong has received a total of three runs of support while tossing four quality starts.

RICHMOND, Va. -- As far as the Chase was concerned, nothing changed during Kevin Harvick's victory in Saturday night's Wonderful Pistachios 400 at Richmond International Raceway -- but what happened between the green flag and the checkered flag was astounding.

For the record, Harvick won his fourth race of the season and the 18th of his career as Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tony Stewart and Denny Hamlin secured the final Chase spots they held provisionally entering the race -- but not without considerable angst in the process.

Harvick beat Jeff Gordon out of the pits after a stop under caution on Lap 385 of 400 and drove away from the four-time champion. Carl Edwards passed Gordon for the second spot and challenged Harvick for the win, but Edwards ran out of time, finishing .139 seconds back.

With four victories each, Harvick and Kyle Busch are the top seeds for this year's Chase.
