EXCELSIOR TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities have released the names of three people who died in a crash involving a northern Michigan high school golf team. They are 18-year-old student Louis Menard, 28-year-old golf coach Jason Potter and 27-year-old Cassandra Stapleton, who was a passenger in another vehicle. Potter was driving six members of the Grayling High School golf team to a tournament Monday when the van collided with another at an intersection in Kalkaska County's Excelsior Township, about 25 miles east of Traverse City. State police say the seven people in both vehicles who survived are at Munson Medical Center, including two students in critical condition.
DETROIT (AP) - Prince Fielder's towering three-run homer in the sixth inning put Detroit ahead, and the Tigers held on Monday night for their fourth straight win, 4-3 over the Minnesota Twins. Detroit trailed 3-1 when Andy Dirks reached on a bunt single and Miguel Cabrera walked. Fielder hit the first pitch over the wall in left-center for an opposite-field homer. That part of the fence is about 405 feet from home plate. Max Scherzer (3-0) allowed three runs and six hits in 7 1-3 innings. He struck out 10 without a walk. Drew Smyly finished the eighth and got the first two outs of the ninth, and Joaquin Benoit finished for his second save. Mike Pelfrey (2-3) allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The Anaheim Ducks are about to find out whether their outstanding regular season means anything in the playoffs. The Ducks realize their impressive record and Pacific Division title won't matter much to the surging Detroit Red Wings. Second-seeded Anaheim drew a tough first-round matchup with postseason-tested Detroit, which has given trouble to Teemu Selanne and his teammates for years. They're meeting in the postseason for the sixth time in 16 years. While the Ducks largely coasted into the playoffs after jumping to a fantastic early-season start, the Red Wings are humming after playing tense games down the stretch just to make it into their 22nd straight postseason. Game 1 is Tuesday night at Honda Center at 10:30 p.m. Game 2 is Thursday, May 2 at 10 p.m. Game 3 will be in Detroit Saturday, May 4 at 7:30 p.m. and Game 4 is in Detroit Monday, May 6 at 8 p.m.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Lions have announced their 2013 Summer Youth Football Camp schedule. It includes 29 camps in 26 cities from June to August. The camps are open to boys and girls ages 4-18, are non-contact and designed to improve beginning, intermediate and advanced skill levels. This year's camps will incorporate the latest health and safety points identified by USA Football. Camp officials will emphasize keeping the head out of the line of contact, concussion awareness and response and proper equipment fitting. Each camp is limited to the first 70 participants to register and is conducted by professional educators from the collegiate and high school ranks. The communities hosting camps include Grand Blanc; Grand Rapids; Midland; Traverse City; and Sylvania, Ohio. Camps also will be held at Ford Field in Detroit.
DETROIT (AP) - Miguel Cabrera's three-run homer in the seventh inning broke the game open, and the Detroit Tigers finished off a three-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves with an 8-3 victory Sunday night. Austin Jackson and Omar Infante (in-fahn-TAY') also homered for the Tigers, and Doug Fister (4-0) struck out eight in seven innings on a rainy night at Comerica Park. Mike Minor (3-2) allowed a three-run homer to Jackson in the third, and although the Braves came back to tie it, Cabrera doubled and scored in the sixth to make it 4-3. Infante hit a solo shot in the seventh, and Cabrera added an opposite-field homer off reliever Cory Gearrin. Atlanta has lost four straight and is 3-8 since a 12-1 start. Cabrera extended his hitting streak to 12 games.
EAST LANSING -- Michigan State's Adreian Payne has decided to stay in school, making the Spartans one of the basketball teams to beat next season. It also might make Payne a top-10 pick next year. The announcement was made Sunday just hours before the deadline for underclassmen to enter the NBA draft. Payne averaged 10.5 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.3 blocks as a junior last season. He produced more in each category in the NCAA tournament. The 6-foot-10, 240-pound forward added a 3-point shot last season. He made 16 of 42 after connecting one of two 3-pointers during his first two years with the Spartans. Big Ten freshman of the year Gary Harris announced last week he was staying at Michigan State for his sophomore season.
DETROIT (AP) - Pavel Datsyuk had a goal and two assists and the Detroit Red Wings moved a step closer to their 22nd straight playoff appearance with a 5-2 win over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night. The Red Wings, who moved into seventh place in the Western Conference, need one more point to secure their spot in the postseason. They own the longest current playoff streak in North American professional sports. Detroit has one regular-season game remaining. Johan Franzen had a goal and an assist, and Valtteri Filppula, Patrick Eaves and Justin Abdelkader also scored for Detroit. Jimmy Howard stopped 20 shots. Mike Fisher and Craig Smith each had a goal and an assist for Nashville, which got 33 saves from Chris Mason. Saturday the Red Wings are in Dallas to play the Stars at 8 p.m.
DETROIT (AP) - Alex Gordon's grand slam highlighted a five-run 10th inning for the Kansas City Royals, who rallied against the Detroit bullpen for an 8-3 win Thursday after Tigers ace Justin Verlander left with a thumb injury. George Kottaras put the Royals ahead 4-3 with a bases-loaded walk off Phil Coke (0-3). Darin Downs came on for Detroit after that, but Gordon broke the game open one out later with his homer over the center-field wall. Verlander is day-to-day with what the team said was cracked skin on his throwing thumb. The right-hander allowed two runs - one earned - in seven innings and left with a 3-2 lead. Bruce Rondon gave up the tying run in the eighth in his major league debut. Tim Collins (1-0) got the win.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Lions have selected BYU's Ziggy Ansah with the No. 5 overall pick in the NFL draft. Detroit drafted Ansah on Thursday night to address a glaring need. Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said the team's first pick would be expected to play a major role right away after drafting players who were reserves as rookies. Ansah grew up in Ghana and tried out for the basketball team at BYU. Three years ago, Ziggy Ansah didn't even know how to put on shoulder pads. Now, he's got a shot to start on an NFL team.
