All season long and deep into October, the Kansas City Royals have relied on their winning formula of fundamental baseball: sparkling defense, a dominant bullpen and just enough timely hitting. Jeremy Guthrie outpitched fellow Series newcomer Tim Hudson, four Royals relievers combined on four hitless innings and Kansas City beat the San Francisco Giants 3-2 Friday night for a 2-1 lead in the Fall Classic.

Joe Maddon's highly successful run as manager of the Tampa Bay Rays is over. After discussions on a new deal bogged down with the Rays, Maddon is now free to listen to offers from any club - a prospect the manager apparently found too difficult to resist. Tampa Bay announced Friday that Maddon had exercised an opt-out clause in his contract. The Rays had expected to have him in their dugout at least through 2015, when his contract was due expire.

The attorney leading the NFL players' union investigation into the Ray Rice domestic violence case told The Associated Press the league and the Baltimore Ravens have not been cooperating. Richard Craig Smith told the AP on Friday night that the NFL has not provided documents and witnesses requested by the NFLPA's investigators, while the Ravens have refused any cooperation with similar requests. ''We cannot accept public statements that call for transparency, candor and openness and then not allow the investigators to do their jobs.'' The union's investigation, like a similar probe organized by the NFL, isn't a law enforcement inquiry and the parties involved aren't under any legal obligation to comply with requests.

Marcus Mariota matched his season high with five touchdown passes and broke the Oregon record for career passing yards in the No. 6 Ducks' 59-41 victory over California on Friday night in the first college game at Levi's Stadium. He also threw his first interception since the Oregon State game last season, ending his streak of passes without an interception at 253. Mariota pushed his career total to 8,625 yards, breaking Bill Musgrave's record of 8,343 on the Ducks' opening possession with the first of two touchdown throws to Dwayne Stanford. Royce Freeman ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns to overcome a critical early turnover, and Charles Nelson scored on a 58-yard punt return to help Oregon (7-1, 4-1 Pac-12) win its sixth straight against Cal. Jared Goff passed for 360 yards and two touchdowns for Cal (4-4, 2-4), but the Bears couldn't overcome multiple breakdowns and lost their third straight.

Ted Bishop was ousted Friday as president of the PGA of America over a sexist tweet and Facebook post directed at Ian Poulter. Bishop was irritated by remarks Poulter made in his book on the Ryder Cup captaincy of Nick Faldo in 2008 and Tom Watson this year. He referred to Poulter as ''Lil Girl'' on Twitter when stacking up Poulter's feats next to Faldo. In a Facebook post, he noted that Watson (with eight majors) and Faldo (with six majors and the Ryder Cup record for most points) were getting ''bashed'' by Poulter.

After the United States' path to the World Cup hit a snag four years ago, Carli Lloyd was happy to help send the team through smoothly this time. Lloyd scored a pair of goals in a 3-0 semifinal victory over Mexico on Friday night, securing the United States a trip to next year's World Cup and a spot in the CONCACAF Women's Championship title match Sunday. In 2010, Mexico surprised the United States in CONCACAF qualifying, forcing the team to wait to earn its ticket to Germany.


Redskins' RG3 speaks, says he won't rush return (Yahoo Sports)

The Washington Redskins finally allowed Robert Griffin III to speak. So he referenced Winston Churchill and played along with the uncertainty whether he might make his return Monday night. His appearance was scheduled by the team after reporters suggested that Griffin's unavailability to the media was a possible violation of NFL access rules. Coach Jay Gruden hasn't ruled out Griffin for Monday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys, but the coach said the plan remains for Colt McCoy to start.


UNC's Williams: 'Very sad time' after fraud report (Yahoo Sports)

(AP Photo/The News & Observer, Robert Willett)

North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams said Friday night it's a ''very sad time'' at the school after an investigation found widespread academic fraud and adds that his program ''thought we were doing the right thing.'' After his team's exhibition victory, Williams spoke for the first time in response to a report released Wednesday that outlined how fraud ran unchecked in the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies (AFAM) department for nearly two decades. Williams said he was ''dumbfounded'' by the details in the report and said UNC ''made some mistakes for a long time'' that damaged the school's reputation and led the NCAA to reopen its probe into academic misconduct here. Justice Department official Kenneth Wainstein called the system a ''shadow curriculum'' running from 1993 to 2011 within the department. The report stated Williams and other coaches said they were aware there were independent study courses offering easy grades, but they didn't know the classes were bogus.

It's all fun and games until Peyton Manning gets mad. Twice in a span of five days, Manning's attention to detail was on full display, from scripting his own celebration of his record-breaking touchdown throw against San Francisco last weekend to calling out an overly exuberant scoreboard operator during Denver's 35-21 win over San Diego on Thursday night. He also didn't appreciate the way Philip Rivers was shown on the jumbo screen to draw jeers. On Friday, coach John Fox said the scoreboard operator made an honest mistake in trying to fire up the fans during the fourth quarter.
