Thursday Sports in Brief

Friday, August 30th, 2019

Travis Etienne ran for a career-high 205 yards and three touchdowns, including one from 90 yards out, and No. 1 Clemson overpowered Georgia Tech 52-14 Thursday night for its 16th straight victory. On an offense filled with stars, it was Etienne who shone brightest for the defending national champions. Etienne added scoring runs of 14 yards and 48 yards as Clemson opened a 35-0 lead and was never pressed by the Yellow Jackets in the season opener for both Atlantic Coast Conference teams.

Friday, August 16th, 2019

Jonathan Schoop hit a two-run, go-ahead home run in the seventh inning, and Max Kepler also homered to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 4-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night in Arlington, Texas. Marwin Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with a run, and Ehire Adrianza had a single and a double for Minnesota, which increased its lead in the American League Central to 1 1/2 games over Cleveland. The Indians lost 3-2 to the New York Yankees earlier Friday night.

Fortunately for their collective self-esteem, the A's are used to being visible only under ultraviolet light, so losing 5-1 to Kyle Gibson and the Minnesota Twins on Fan Appreciation Day was only disappointing to them.
