College Hockey

The Finlandia University women’s hockey team has a new coach. Michael Kuruc was the assistant coach and Recruiting Coordinator at SUNY-Potsdam last season, and gained earlier experience at Syracuse University.

He takes over for Lindsay Macy, who became head coach at the College of Saint Benedict in St. Joseph, Minnesota, in May.

The Lions won three games last season, after having gone winless the previous two seasons.


The Tigers collected just three hits in a 2-0 loss to the White Sox last night. Chicago starter Michael Kopech tossed six no-hit innings. He struck out 11 before he was pulled because of a rising pitch count. Detroit starter Daniel Norris turned in a good effort, allowing four hits and no runs before leaving in the fifth. Alex Lange gave up both Chisox runs in the seventh, and took the loss.

The Tigers visit the White Sox again tonight. Matt Manning will start against Lucas Giolito. Coverage begins at 6:50 on 99.3 The Lift.

Tarik Skubal’s season is over. The Tigers transferred him to the 60-day injured list yesterday, opening up the spot needed on the 40-man roster for Norris. Skubal was originally sidelined by arm fatigue, but felt pain in his elbow when he began to throw again. Doctors are evaluating.

The Brewers fell to the Cardinals 3-1 last evening. Eric Lauer gave up three runs over six innings. Victor Caratini had three hits, and drove in Milwaukee’s only run.

The Brewers visit the Cardinals again this evening. Corbin Burnes will pitch against Adam Wainwright.


The Lions opened their exhibition season with a 27-23 loss to the Falcons last night. Jared Goff led the team to a touchdown on the opening possession, then gave way to backups David Blough and Tim Boyle.

The Packers fell to the 49ers 28-21. Aaron Rodgers and many of the Green Bay regulars did not play at all. Jordan Love completed 13 of 24 passes for 176 yards, with two touchdowns, and three interceptions.
