Pirates Keep Losing
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Chris Coghlan hit a three-run triple and John Lackey worked in and out of trouble over five innings, helping the Chicago Cubs beat the reeling Pittsburgh Pirates 6-4 on Tuesday night. Coghlan's second-inning drive off the wall in right-center against Ryan Vogelsong (3-7) gave the NL Central champions all the offense they would need to win for the seventh time in their last eight games. Chicago improved to 101-56, the club's highest victory total since it won 104 games in 1910. Dexter Fowler added an RBI double for Chicago. Lackey (11-8) worked around five hits and three walks to win his last regular season start. Felix Pena recorded the final two outs for his first career save after Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run single off Justin Grimm to get the Pirates within two. Pena struck out Sean Rodriguez with the bases loaded to end it. Vogelsong allowed four runs in five innings and fell to 0-3 with a 9.55 ERA in September.

Cole Suspended For Throwing At Kang's Head
WASHINGTON (AP) - Washington Nationals pitcher A.J. Cole has been suspended for five games and fined for throwing a pitch near the head of Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Jung Ho Kang on Saturday. Cole appealed the punishment announced by Major League Baseball yesterday.

Wild Card Battle Continues
UNDATED (AP) - The New York Mets continue to lead the two National League wild-card races, a half-game ahead of San Francisco and 1 1/2 games in front of St. Louis. Yoenis Cespedes and Jay Bruce homered and Curtis Granderson and Lucas Duda drove in two runs apiece as the Mets ripped the Marlins, 12-1 at Miami. The Giants pounded Colorado 12-3 to stay one game ahead of the Cardinals for the second NL wild-card berth.

Nationals Lose Ramos
WASHINGTON (AP) - Nationals All-Star catcher Wilson Ramos will miss the upcoming postseason after being diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee. Ramos was injured as he landed awkwardly after making a leaping grab of an errant throw to the plate during Monday's loss to Arizona. Ramos was hitting .307 with 22 home runs and 80 RBIs.

Watt Out For Several Months
HOUSTON (AP) - A person familiar with J.J. Watt's condition tells The Associated Press that the Texans' defensive end has re-injured his back, and the team expects him to be out until at least December, and possibly the entire season. The three-time Defensive Player of the year missed training camp and Houston's four preseason games after surgery in July to repair a herniated disk in his back. He started each of the Texans' three regular-season games and got hurt again last Thursday against the Patriots.

Canada Tops Team Europe
TORONTO (AP) - Canada has opened the best-of-3 World Cup of Hockey finals with a victory. Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron assisted on each other's goals as Canada downed Team Europe, 3-1. Steven Stamkos also scored and Carey Price turned back 32 shots to help the Canadians improve to 5-0 in the tournament.
Jaroslav Halak stopped 35 shots and Tomas Tatar had the lone goal for Europe. Canada can wrap up the tournament Thursday. Game 3 would be Saturday should the Europeans extend the finals.
