PITTSBURGH — The Cincinnati Reds likely envisioned themselves in the thick of a pennant race as the calendar turned to September. Yet, they're five games under .500 after injuries wreaked havoc on one of baseball's more talented rosters.

Even Johnny Cueto, one of the game's best pitchers, hasn't been immune to the tough times endured by the Reds this season.

On Sunday, Cueto overcame an early jolt to earn his 16th win and Chris Heisey hit two home runs, including a tie-breaking shot in the ninth inning, as the Reds beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2.

The series dates to 1887 when Michigan students traveled to South Bend to teach Notre Dame students the game. The game has featured exciting games, standout players and feuding coaches from schools 150 miles apart that are both coming off easy opening victories.

Michigan defensive end Frank Clark doesn't like what's happening.

NEW YORK — Troy Vincent pounds his fists on a conference room table and smiles.

"We are a copycat league, you bet," he says. "If Peyton and Philip and Brees and Brady are doing something that's good, then go out and try to do the same thing."

Easier said than done if you don't have such star quarterbacks but Vincent's point is well taken. The NFL's head of football operations, a star player for 15 pro seasons and former president of the players' union, recognizes that trends always will be a part of the sport.

NORTON, Mass. — Russell Henley doesn't get into contention as much as he'd like, though he is tough to beat when he's anywhere near the lead.

Rory McIlroy seems to be there all the time.
