ARLINGTON, Texas — Robinson Chirinos hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth inning, sending the Texas Rangers to a 2-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night.

The Chattanooga Lookouts' strong run to a spot in the Southern League championship series is a case of a baseball team peaking at the right time. Title opponent Jacksonville, however, has reached a different peak.

BALTIMORE — A short and tumultuous work week for the Baltimore Ravens ended with a surprisingly lopsided victory.

The Jacksonville Suns got all the runs they needed in the first two innings Wednesday night at AT&T Field and defeated the Chattanooga Lookouts 5-3 in the opening game of the best-of-five Southern League baseball championship series.

WASHINGTON — Fredi Gonzalez cannot explain why the Braves have done so well against Stephen Strasburg. The Atlanta manager is just glad his team beat the Washington ace once again.

There was a time when getting to the Southern League championship series was all Chattanooga Lookouts owner Frank Burke knew.

WASHINGTON — Adam LaRoche kept up his torrid stretch with two hits and two RBIs, and the Washington Nationals essentially put to rest any thought that there is still a serious race for the NL East title with a 6-4 win over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The small, speedy rookie from little Pittsburg State made his first NFL touchdown a big one.

At the beginning of August, the Chattanooga Lookouts were in the midst of a disappointing season and seven and a half games out of first place in their division. Now, one month later, they will play for a Southern League title.

WASHINGTON — Doug Fister pitched seven shutout innings, leading the Washington Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday night in the opener of a three-game series between the top teams in the NL East.

DETROIT — Matthew Stafford's first game under Jim Caldwell was a success.

So it all comes down to this.

ATLANTA — Matt Ryan has turned in plenty of impressive performances for the Atlanta Falcons.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Titans were implementing a new offensive system under Ken Whisenhunt, a new defensive system under coordinator Ray Horton, and trying to make a whole bunch of new pieces fit.
