DETROIT (AP) - Rick Porcello struck out 10 in six impressive innings, and the Detroit Tigers beat the Seattle Mariners 4-2 on Monday night to move a step closer to their third straight AL Central title. Victor Martinez broke a 1-all tie in the sixth with a run-scoring single, and Omar Infante followed with his own RBI single. Porcello (13-8) allowed a run and five hits with two walks, falling one strikeout short of his career high. Drew Smyly got five outs in relief and Jose Veras finished the eighth. Joaquin Benoit pitched a hitless ninth for his 21st save in 21 chances.
JOLIET, Ill. (AP) - It was a great night for Joe Gibbs Racing at rain-soaked Chicagoland Speedway. Matt Kenseth won the Geico 400, finishing just ahead of Gibbs teammate Kyle Busch. Kenseth entered as the top seed in the Chase for the championship and showed why after two rain delays that totaled 6 1/2 hours. He passed Busch on a restart with 27 laps remaining and padded his lead in the Sprint Cup points race. Kevin Harvick finished third, followed by Kurt Busch, Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz says tests on Reggie Bush's left knee were "encouraging," and his ailment isn't a long-term injury. Bush took a helmet to his left knee in the first half Sunday at Arizona and played only briefly in the third quarter, leading to the Lions losing 25-21. Schwartz says Bush was on his way to contributing a lot. He accounted for 69 yards of offense in two-plus quarters against the Cardinals after having 191 yards from scrimmage in an opening-week win over Minnesota in his Detroit debut. The Lions definitely missed Bush against Arizona, where they were held scoreless on offense in the second half. Bush told reporters after the game he didn't think the injury was serious.
DETROIT (AP) - Jhonny Peralta is expected to leave for the instructional league this week so he can keep working toward rejoining the Detroit Tigers after completing his 50-game suspension. Manager Jim Leyland says Peralta will leave Wednesday for the instructional league in Florida, where he'll play in the outfield. Peralta was Detroit's starting shortstop, but the Tigers acquired Jose Iglesias from Boston just before Peralta was suspended following baseball's investigation into Biogenesis of America, a Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. General manager Dave Dombrowski already has said if Peralta returns, it won't be as the team's starting shortstop. Leyland didn't want to speculate on whether Peralta would be part of the roster if the Tigers reach the postseason.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - After one of its worst performances in the Big House, No. 15 Michigan is about to take its show on the road. And Wolverines coach Brady Hoke is going to be staying up nights thinking about it. Connecticut isn't exactly a marquee opponent, but Hoke isn't worried about overconfidence after Saturday's debacle against Akron. Facing a team coming off three straight 1-11 seasons, Michigan (3-0) had to make two defensive stops inside the 5-yard line to hang on for a 28-24 victory. By the time Hoke got to the podium for his postgame press conference, he knew exactly how he has going to reward his team for the performance. "We went out and practiced with helmets and shoulder pads, the whole thing," he said. "I wouldn't say the kids were excited about it, but they accepted it. I was excited, though."
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Adam Almquist scored two power-play goals in the second period and Tomas Tatar had a goal and assist to lead the Detroit Red Wings past the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 on Monday night in a preseason game. Paval Datsyuk also scored for Detroit, netting a second-period, unassisted goal. Almquist scored at 6:10 and 11:50 with shots from the point to put the Red Wings ahead 3-1. Brandon Sutter netted the lone Pittsburgh goal at 1:05 of the second, to get the Penguins even at 1. Tatar opened the scoring when he took a failed wraparound attempt and tucked the puck under the crossbar at 12:56 of the first. Both starting goalies worked two periods. Tomas Vokoun allowed four goals on 15 shots for the Penguins. Detroit's Jimmy Howard made 13 saves.
(SANDUSKY) -- The Sandusky boy's and girl's cross country teams competed at the Holly invitational on Saturday. The girl's team placed first after defeating the defending Division Four state champs by one point. Medal winners for the Redskins' girl's team were Crystal Tovas in 5th place, Morgan Redman in 7th place, Sami Orchard in 8th place, Emily Cowley in 9th, Kaley Haupt in 11th place, Madison Polewach in 22nd, and Gabby Martino in 27th place. The Sandusky boy's cross country team won the third place trophy led Kaden Thompson's 6th place victory, Justin Campbell coming in at 12th place, Ethan Tubbs in 18th place, Elijah Bittner in 31st, Justin Miller in 39th place, Tate Larson in 47th, and Nick Kohn in 69th place.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Michigan coach Brady Hoke says it'll be a "glazed-doughnut game" when the 11th-ranked Wolverines play Akron. Say what? Hoke explains that when he was growing up and playing football, eating a glazed doughnut the morning before games was part of his routine. He is now trying to bring his childhood ritual to Ann Arbor, promising early-arriving students they will get a doughnut before noon kickoffs. The school plans to pass out the sweet treat to the first 5,000 students who pass through the gates Saturday at Michigan stadium. Hoke's players can also have a doughnut, or more, when they have their pregame meal in the morning. A cupcake might be more fitting with the Zips coming to town.
