A’s still trying to find a playoff spot.  The ability of Liam Hendriks to bring stability to the ninth inning has been a major reason the A’s find themselves in control of a playoff spot this late in the year. But Monday night saw a rare Hendriks hiccup.

After Khris Davis’ RBI single broke an eighth-inning tie, Hendriks was unable to make a one-run lead hold up as he surrendered a pair of runs in a 6-5 loss to the Royals at the Coliseum. It was just his second blown save when entering a game in the ninth this season.

On a night when the Rays and Indians — the two clubs hot on the A’s trail for the top American League Wild Card spot — were idle, the loss shrunk Oakland’s lead for the top spot over Tampa Bay to just one game with 11 to go in the regular season. The loss also snapped a six-game winning streak for the A’s.

Oregon Tech’s Payton Canon has been named Cascade Conference Red Lion Women’s Golfer of the Week as announced by the conference office today.

Canon, a sophomore from Greenwood Village, Colorado, was outstanding for the Lady Owls at the Multnomah Invite, leading the field after her 72 performance in round two. The sophomore would go on to win the tournament by three strokes, finishing with a two-day total of 147 leading the Owls to a second place finish.

The Owls will return to action this week September 23 and 24 at the University of British Columbia Invite at Sudden Valley GC in Bellingham, Washington.

The New York Jets came into “Monday Night Football” without their starting quarterback, but after a 23-3 drubbing at the hands of the Cleveland Browns, they’re even in worse shape, having lost backup Trevor Siemian to an ankle injury and sputtering throughout the entirety of their prime-time appearance at home.

The Browns weren’t exactly on their best game, either, but that hardly mattered on a night when Adam Gase’s offense could do little more than feed the rock to Le’Veon Bell and hope the former Pittsburgh Steelers star magically fixed the rest of their team

Odell Beckham Jr. rubbed his talent right in Gregg Williams’ face.

The outspoken wideout was far from the only reason Cleveland won, but he was probably the biggest reason with 161 receiving yards, an 89-yard score and a one-handed grab that gave the Browns momentum right out of the gate. 

Oregon Tech overcame a slow start Saturday to overpower Multnomah University and pick up a 25-20, 25-12, 25-10 Cascade Collegiate Conference volleyball victory at Danny Miles Court. The win pushes Tech to 3-1 in league play, with all three wins coming at home.

 Justin Herbert threw five touchdown passes and Oregon’s defense held its opponent without a touchdown, each for the second week in a row, as the 15th-ranked Ducks wrapped up their nonconference slate with a 35-3 win Saturday over Montana in Autzen Stadium.

Herbert threw two touchdown passes to Jacob Breeland in the first quarter and two more to Johnny Johnson III before the Grizzlies got on the scoreboard with a field goal late in the third quarter. Herbert added another touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to Jaylon Redd.

 A career day for redshirt senior quarterback Jake Luton propelled the Beavers to a commanding victory over Cal Poly, 45-7, Saturday afternoon inside Reser Stadium. Luton threw four touchdown passes on the day and racked up a 255-yard performance on 17-of-22 passing. Oregon State totaled 549 yards of offense and saw four different Beavers reach the end zone to earn the dominating victory. 

Klamath Falls native Seth Brown had a 2 for 4 day to keep his batting average at .385 since being called up to the major leagues in a 6-1 victory by Oakland in Texas yesterday.

 There’ll be hits and misses for young Mariners prospects as they play out the final weeks of the season, but Kyle Lewis seems intent on making the most of his hits.

The 24-year-old rookie right fielder launched his fourth homer in his first six Major League games in Sunday’s 11-10 walk-off win over the White Sox, unloading a three-run blast to dead center in the eighth inning off reliever Kelvin Herrera.

In the NFL, San Francisco  defeated Cincinnati to go to 2-0, 41-17, Oakland lost to Kansas City 28-10, and the Seattle Seahawks edged Pittsburgh, 28-26.
