MLB
Nicholas Castellanos’ two-run triple in the third inning brought the Detroit Tigers from behind, and they held on to edge the Colorado Rockies 4-3 last night. Detroit opened the scoring with two runs in the first inning. Colorado took the lead in the second, with three runs off Jordan Zimmermann. Zimmermann completed five innings, and earned the win.

The Tigers continue that interleague series in Denver tonight. Michael Fulmer will start against German Márquez. Pregame coverage will start at 8:15 on 99.3 The Lift.

The Milwaukee Brewers had yesterday off, and host the Saint Louis Cardinals tonight. Matt Garza will pitch against Luke Weaver.

The Cubs won yesterday, so Milwaukee now trails Chicago by two-and-a-half games in the National League Central Division.

NFL
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is now the highest-paid player in the history of professional football. Stafford and the team have agreed to a five-year contract extension worth 27-million dollars per season. That’s two-million per season more than the previous record holder, Derek Carr, makes with the Oakland Raiders.

MSU
Former Michigan State University basketball coach Jud Heathcote has died. Heathcote guided the Spartans for 19 seasons, and led them to the 1978-79 NCAA title. He was 90 years old.

Calumet Wolverines
There are just a few spots left in Saturday’s Calumet Wolverines golf outing. The four-person scramble will begin with a shotgun start at 10:00 at the Calumet Golf Club. The cost is $140.00 per team, which includes lunch. To sign up, call the Calumet Golf Club at 337-3913. Proceeds will support the Wolverines hockey team.

Sisu Challenge
The Sisu Challenge will be held Saturday at Ray Kestner Waterfront Park. The Challenge consists of races in which small teams of competitors fight their way through courses past creative obstacles. Teams may consist of three-to-five members. The cost is $45.00 per participant. Proceeds will help support the Ben Hall Memorial Scholarship Fund.
