PITTSBURGH — Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price figures it is pointless to break down his club's performance this late in the season.

"Everyone knows our strengths and weaknesses by now," he said. "We don't score runs consistently enough and it's hurt us in close games all season."

That was a problem again Saturday as Neil Walker hit a 3-run homer in the first inning and the Pittsburgh Pirates made it hold up behind starter Vance Worley, beating the Reds 3-2 for their fourth straight victory.

NORTON, Mass. — With an orange ribbon on his hat and nine birdies on his card, Matt Kuchar pulled within a shot of the lead Saturday in the Deutsche Bank Championship. Not that he needed a reminder but a message posted on the scoring table spoke to the emotions involved in this tournament.

Players were offered a chance to donate to a trust fund for the 4-year-old daughter of Lance Bennett, his caddie. Bennett's wife, Angela, died of a seizure Wednesday. Kuchar decided to play to raise awareness and get the tour involved in helping the family.

HAMPTON, Ga. — Jeff Gordon is expecting Tony Stewart to be a contender in his return to the track.

Kevin Harvick will be on the pole but Stewart, who will start 12th, will be in the spotlight in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race tonight at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Stewart is competing for the first time since the sprint car he was driving struck and killed 20-year-old Kevin Ward Jr. in an Aug. 9 race at a dirt track in upstate New York.

BALTIMORE — There might come a time when Ohio State coach Urban Meyer expands his offensive playbook to include various long passes, reverses and bootlegs.

Until his young quarterback gains confidence and his line grows up, the No. 5 Buckeyes will likely count on the kind of conservative game plan that proved good enough to beat Navy 34-17 Saturday.

Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett threw for 226 yards and two touchdowns in his college debut as Ohio State earned its 25th consecutive regular-season victory.
