The Brewers won the slug fest 13 to 10 to give the brew crew the victory last night against the Rockies.  Jean Segura homered twice in his first multi-homerun game.  Kris Davis also added a home run.  Ryan Braun had three hits and this was also his 1000 career game.   Carlos Gomez also extended his hitting streak to 16 games.  The Brewers ended the night with 19 hits.  Francisco Rodriguez also earned his 24th save in 26 opportunities. The Brewers improved there record to 45-30 on the season.

Tiger Woods will return next week at the PGA Tour event near Washington, D.C., 12 weeks after having surgery on his back. Woods announced the decision Friday afternoon via his Facebook account, acknowledging that he will be a bit rusty for the Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club. The tournament, in its eighth year, benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation. That likely has something to do with Woods decision to try and play, though his agent said in an interview Friday night that the golfer would not risk his health for the event.

In world cup scores, Costa Rica beat Italy 1 to 0.  France beat Switzerland 5 to 2, and Ecuador beat Honduras 2 to 1.

The idea of college players being paid has been tossed around a lot lately between commissioners of the conferences.  The head of the Big Ten painted a grim picture Friday of what college sports would look like if players were paid. He said his conference likely would cease to exist and the Rose Bowl probably would not be played.

Jim Delany said the idea of paying players goes against the entire college experience and he couldn’t see league members agreeing to it. He said, if some did, they likely would be kicked out of the conference because the move would create an imbalance among schools.

The longtime commissioner said it also would bring about the end of the Rose Bowl as a traditional New Year’s Day game between Big Ten and Pac-12 teams.
