Cubs Thrash Dodgers to Even N.L.C.S. at Two Games Each - The New York Times

LOS ANGELES — Faced with a moment of truth after being shut out in back-to-back games by the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Chicago Cubs had all eyes upon them, studying how they would react.

Manager Joe Maddon professed faith in his players, promising that he would not be visiting Negative Town anytime soon.

Instead, he wanted the Cubs to forget their circumstance and stop looking for panaceas. Maddon wanted his players to think small.

And so Ben Zobrist did when he came to the plate after the Cubs had added three more hitless innings to their growing frustration. On the first pitch he saw to begin the fourth, Zobrist dropped a bunt down the third-base line and raced to first without a throw.

Badgers gird for Iowa's ground game

Madison — Iowa’s most consistent offensive threats reside in the backfield — tailbacks LeShun Daniels and Akrum Wadley.

Yet as the Hawkeyes (5-2, 3-1 Big Ten) prepare to host No. 10 Wisconsin (4-2, 1-2) this week, it remains uncertain who will be trying to clear a path for the backs.

Tackles Cole Croston and Boone Myers and tight end George Kittle could be out, or at best limited, because of injuries.

“We came out of the game with some guys injured and a lot of it is going to be day-by-day,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said this week, referring to the Hawkeyes’ 49-35 victory over Purdue. “We’ll see how it goes during the course of the week."

Meanwhile, UW’s front seven likely won’t be at full-strength for the key West Division game.


2-Minute Drill: Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Wisconsin Badgers | The Gazette

The Hawkeyes are 5-2 (3-1 Big Ten). No one can say exactly what they are or where they’re headed, even after seven games of evidence. Sometimes, this works and that doesn’t. How did this team get schemed and powered against North Dakota State? Iowa’s best win is at Minnesota and who knows what that means exactly.

And yet, Iowa will play No. 10 Wisconsin (4-2, 1-2) in what amounts to a Big Ten West Division tournament game. Yes, tournament game. B1G divisional play has made for a pseudo round robin in October/November. This season, Iowa, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Northwestern will play with divisional stakes.


Verizon Earnings: Revenue Slides Along With Subscriber Numbers

Verizon Communications, the No. 1 U.S. wireless carrier that has agreed to buy Yahoo’s core business, reported a 6.7% drop in quarterly revenue as it added far fewer subscribers than expected.

Verizon said on Thursday it added a net 442,000 retail postpaid subscribers, or those who pay their bills on a monthly basis, in the third-quarter ended Sept. 30.

Analysts were expecting 766,300, according to market research firm FactSet StreetAccount.

Verizon VZ -2.39% , whose $4.83 billion deal to buy Yahoo’s core business has been shaken by a massive data breach at the Internet company, said its total operating revenue fell to $30.94 billion from $33.16 billion.
