NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Saints on Tuesday confirmed a multi-year contract with Jimmy Graham, ending a protracted holdout for the star tight end.

Graham skipped all of the Saints' voluntary and mandatory practices and workouts — and challenged the NFL's franchise tag process through arbitration.

The odds of Graham leaving the Saints were slim since the club in late February placed its franchise tag on the player.

FORT JENNINGS — Both games needed an extra inning.

On a cool and breezy Tuesday afternoon/evening at the Little League diamond behind Fort Jennings High School, the Delphos Pirates and the Delphos Braves earned trips to tonight’s Tri-County Little League title game at the Delphos Stadium Park LL Diamond.

In the nightcap, the Pirates scored with two outs in the bottom of the seventh to sneak past the Delphos Reds 8-7.

In the opener, the Braves scored twice in the top of the seventh to evict the Van Wert Treece Landscaping Rockhounds 4-2.

In the nightcap, tied at 7-7 entering the bottom half of the seventh, Jaylen Jefferson was plunked in the chest (attempting a bunt) by third Reds hurler Brady Grothouse (2 2/3 innings pitched, 3 hits, 1 unearned run, 1 base-on-balls, 2 strikeouts). He advanced on a passed ball and reached third on an error on Hunter Haehn’s pop-up. After Haehn stole second, an out later, Logan Hubert bounced to third baseman Ashton Moore, who threw home and Jefferson was called out on the tag. Haehn stood on third afterward and scored as Cole Binkley (4-for-4, 3 runs batted in, 2 runs scored) grounded a single up the gut to end the game.

The Reds drew first blood in the top of the first against Pirates starter Haehn (2 1/3 IPs, 5 hits, 4 earned runs, 3 BBs, 4 Ks) on a leadoff swat to center by Jacon Wrasman (3-for-4, 3 runs), a wild pitch and 1-out back-to-back knocks by Grothouse (4-for-4) and Logan Gallmeier. However, they were stranded, becoming two of the 12 they left on base.

The Pirates batted around (10 men) in the home second, going up 6-1. Brady Parrish and Logan Hubert walked and Binkley doubled to right center to score both. Blake Fischbach (2-for-3) ripped a hit up the middle to finish Moore and bring Logan Gallmeier (3 IPs, 4 hits 2 unearned runs, 2 Ks) to toe the rubber. Brady Zalar singled to left to get Binkley home for a 3-1 lead. Zalar beat the throw to second on Derek Haggard’s bouncer to second sacker Devin Lindeman, scoring Fischbach; an error on the play allowed runners to move up a base. Trent Lindeman’s bounceout to third plated Zalar and an error on Scalf’s bouncer got Haggard in for the sixth run.

MINNEAPOLIS — Derek Jeter soaked in the adulation from fans and players during one more night on baseball's national stage, set the tone for the American League with a pregame speech and then delivered two final All-Star hits.

Mike Trout, perhaps the top candidate to succeed the 40-year-old Yankees captain as the face of the game, seemed ready to assume the role with a tie-breaking triple and later a go-ahead double that earned him MVP honors.

On a summer evening filled with reminders of generational change, the AL kept up nearly two decades of dominance by beating the National League 5-3 Tuesday for its 13th win in 17 years.
