    CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs will experience the thrill of winning the National League Central title in unusual fashion after they host the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday afternoon.Milwaukee won the series opener 5-4 on Thursday night, preventing the Cubs from clinching before a sellout crowd at Wrigley Field.Chicago, though, wrapped up its first division title since 2008 when the St. Louis Cardinals lost to the San Francisco Giants 6-2 about 1 1/2 hours later. The Cubs decided not to hang around the clubhouse to await the Cardinals outcome, instead choosing to wait another day to celebrate.The Cubs boast three starting pitchers with legitimate cases for NL Cy Young Award attention, but the Brewers came to town this week with some pitching that has even surpassed Chicagos of late.Brewers right-hander Chase Anderson (8-11, 4.53 ERA) may be emblematic of the improvement as he brings a 4-1 record and 2.30 ERA over his last nine starts into the Friday game.Since Aug. 22, Milwaukee pitchers have posted a big league-leading 2.73 ERA over the past 23 games, allowing 40 runs in 131 2/3 innings.That narrowly tops second-place Chicago, which has a 2.90 ERA in the same span followed by the Los Angeles Dodgers (3.05).Its certainly a positive side. I think it tells you that its in there and that we can have above average pitching here, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. The 25 games is not 162 games and thats what this team over here (the Cubs) have done. ... (But) knowing that weve got it and weve got six guys doing it is a good thing for us.Anderson is 8-11 with a 4.53 ERA as he makes his 29th appearance and 28th start of the season.He started Saturday in St. Louis and earned a no-decision in a loss, allowing three hits in 5 2/3 shutout innings. Anderson is 1-0 with a 1.93 ERA in two starts against Chicago -- both this season.The Cubs counter with right-hander John Lackey, who makes his third start since an August stay on the disabled list with a right shoulder strain. He missed 19 games after being sidelined on Aug. 19 (retroactive to Aug. 14).Lackey is 0-1 since coming back. He didnt get the decision in a five-inning start Sept. 4 in the Cubs 3-2 victory over the Giants and allowed two runs over six innings in a 2-1 Chicago loss in Houston on Sunday.Lackey is 9-8 with a 3.35 ERA as he makes his 27th start of the season and 15th at home. He is 5-2 with a 3.09 ERA in 10 career starts against Milwaukee, including 0-1 with a 3.00 ERA in two starts this season.Cubs manager Joe Maddon said he has no concerns whether Lackey is fully recovered from his shoulder issues.No, hes been good, Maddon said. Ive not noticed anything. Hes been fine.Chicago brings two of its aces back around to conclude the series.Right-hander Jake Arrieta (17-6, 2.91 ERA) goes against Brewers rookie Zach Davies (10-7, 3.87) on Saturday. Davies and fellow rookie Junior Guerra have combined for 19 wins this season, the third most combined by two rookies in franchise history.Right-hander Kyle Hendricks (15-7, 2.03) who pitched eight no-hit innings in his last outing, pitches Sunday against righty Wily Peralta (6-10, 5.42). Steve Largent NHL Power Rankings for the second straight week, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche. Chris Carson Jersey. -- Five former Kansas City Chiefs players who were on the team between 1987 and 1993 filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming the team hid and even lied about the risks of head injuries during that time period when there was no collective bargaining agreement in place in the NFL. - General manager Billy King says the Brooklyn Nets are looking to add a big man and confirmed the team worked out centre Jason Collins, who would become the first openly gay active NBA player if signed. Michael Bennett Jersey. -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No. Thomas Rawls Jersey. -- If this was Aaron Gordons final home game at Arizona, and it almost certainly was, then he went out in style. SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak understands why there isnt much buzz surrounding his program, and doesnt feel slighted. He knows the roster is nearly unrecognizable.The Utes were picked to finish eighth in the Pac-12 this season despite going to back-to-back NCAA Tournaments and having a player selected in the first round of the last two NBA drafts. That success, however, was driven by upper classmen, including draft picks Jakob Poeltl and Delon Wright. Poeltl left after his sophomore campaign.That leaves forward Kyle Kuzma (10.8 points per game) and guard Lorenzo Bonam (10.2 points) as the only two players on the roster who logged significant minutes last year.One of the major reasons I thought we got picked eighth in the Pac-12 is because nobody knows who we have, Kuzma said. We have freshmen. We have junior college transfers. We have walk-ons. If you ask the public, the only ones people know are me and Zo. Come February, people are going to know everybody.From a glass-half-full perspective, the Utes may benefit for a while as teams try to develop scouting reports on the new group and how they like to play. Krystkowiak and the coaching staff continue to do that themselves as players develop roles and a rotation emerges. At the same time, well-known players are well-known for a reason -- theyve had a certain amount of success.Its the old saying, the same thing that will make you laugh will make you cry, Krystkowiak said. That sounds really good, but if they dont know us, maybe thats not a good thing. You can paint it any way you want.To be honest with you, Id much rather have five starters back than not and be able to say, `Geez, at least they dont know what it is were doing. Its an early stage of this program. Weve got some young players ready to go. Hopefully, they can be productive and we can be competitive here this season. And then some of those guuys, as they start building the program, theyve been here awhile and then they become a little more savvy.ddddddddddddThings to watch from Utah in 2016-17:PRACTICE PATIENCE: Newcomers David Collette and Sedrick Barefield are both likely starters once they are eligible to play. Both will miss the first eight games due to transfer rules before becoming eligible to face Prairie View A&M on Dec. 17. Collette is a 6-foot-8, 220-pounder who averaged 12.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and shot 59.1 percent at Utah State in 2014-15. The 6-2, 190-pound Barefield is a sophomore who played six games for SMU last season.SCHEDULE HELP: The Utes will ease into the season with a pre-conference schedule filled with teams from outside Power Five conferences. Utah starts the season with Northwest Nazarene, Concordia, Coppin State, UC Riverside, Butler, Montana State, Utah Valley, Xavier and Prairie View A&M. That gives the new roster some time to grow.THE LEAP: Kuzma and Bonam are expected to lead vocally and production-wise. The versatile 6-9 Kuzma will need to be more aggressive on both ends of the floor while also getting teammates involved on offense. Bonam, 6-4, will likely start the season as the primary ball-handler until Barefield arrives and he slides back to shooting guard. Krystkowiak said Bonam needs to show more focus and energy if he wants to be a leader.THE OTHERS: Wing Gabe Bealer and guard Jake Connor are the only other two players on the roster who played a single game for the Utes last year. JoJo Zamora, Parker Van Dyke and Devon Daniels are in the mix for guard minutes. Seven-footer Jayce Johnson should see significant minutes in the post. Freshman forward Chris Seeley and junior college transfer Tim Coleman are both dealing with shoulder injuries. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
