CHICAGO (AP) — Jeremy Guthrie pitched seven strong innings to lead the Kansas City Royals to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox last night. The Royals earned their 84th win one day after being eliminated from the playoffs. That’s the most wins they’ve had since 1993. Paul Konerko and Adam Dunn hit solo homers for the White Sox.

(AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays and Cleveland Indians each picked up their seventh straight wins last night, keeping the Rays one game ahead of the Tribe in the battle for the first AL wild-card berth. Alex Cobb tossed three-hit ball over seven innings and Evan Longoria drove in three runs to lead the Rays to a 4-0 shutout and their first three-game sweep of the Yankees in New York. Yan Gomes hit a two-run homer and Michael Brantley had two RBIs as the Indians beat Minnesota 6-5 to stay one game ahead of Texas for the final wild-card berth.

NEW YORK (AP) — Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez and Atlanta Braves utility man Reed Johnson have each received one-game suspensions from Major League Baseball for their roles in a bench-clearing incident last night. Gomez touched off the incident by admiring his first-inning homer from home plate and got into shouting matches with several Braves before he was met by Atlanta catcher Brian McCann about 20 feet from home plate. Johnson was punished for charging out of the Braves’ dugout and shoving Gomez.

NFL

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Frank Gore led the San Francisco 49ers’ potent ground attack in a 35-11 win over the Rams in St. Louis last night. Gore provided 153 of the Niners’ 219 rushing yards, including a 34-yard touchdown that put San Francisco ahead 14-3 just before halftime. Colin Kaepernick had a pair of touchdown passes for the 49ers, who totaled just 10 points in losing their previous two games.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs’ backup tight end has few rivals when it comes to facial hair. He’s not doing too bad at catching the football, either.

Sean McGrath is quickly becoming known for his gnarly whiskers, and a hero to Chiefs fans for the way he’s filled in for banged-up starters Anthony Fasano and Travis Kelce.

A product of Division II Henderson State, McGrath was claimed just before the season and has filled in admirably. He had the first two catches of his NFL career two weeks ago against Dallas, and last week had four catches for 31 yards in a win over Philadelphia.

Then there’s the facial hair, which sprouts out of his chinstrap at all sorts of crazy angles. McGrath has been growing it since St. Patrick’s Day and has no plans to trim it soon.
