In baseball, the Giants clinched the National League West on Saturday. On Sunday they gave many of the starters a rest, and lost to the San Diego Padres, 6-4. The Giants are off Monday and host the Arizona Diamondbacks starting Tuesday.
The A's beat the Yankees in New York, 5-4 with lots of drama, says sports journalist Rick Tittle: “The Oakland A's finally won a game at Yankee Stadium after 33 innings, dropping a 10 inning affair on Friday night and then a nearly six hour, fourteen inning heartbreaker which they led by four runs in the 13th on Saturday. But with the victory, the A's are still the second of the two wild cards in the American League.
The A’s begin a four-game series against Texas Monday night.
In football, the Raiders came from behind to beat the Steelers, 34-31 after a dramatic tackle that sent one of Oakland's players to the hospital.
“Darrius Heyward-Bey, the Raiders wide receiver, was knocked out cold in the end zone and is being treated for a concussion. The NFL is been very aware of concussions and they now have league-mandated doctors that do have to clear players before they get back on the field,” says Rick Tittle. Heyward-Bey's condition is said to be stable at Eden Medical Center.
Also, the 49ers lost to the Vikings in Minneapolis, 24-13.
