KC Cougars

Sports Shorts: Cougars blow late lead

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – With a 5-1 lead in hand entering the bottom of the ninth inning, things seemed in line for the Kane County Cougars to pull off a victory, but a feverish comeback from the Fort Wayne TinCaps pushed the Cougars into a 6-5, 10-inning loss on Friday night at Parkview Field. 

Nathan Dorris took the ball for the Cougars (7-11) in the bottom of the ninth as he allowed a single and a walk to start the frame before an error by Dan Vogelbach loaded the bases. Diego Goris drew Fort Wayne (12-8) within three as he poked an RBI single while Gabriel Quintana's two-run double made it a one-run contest. 

Bears select Bostic in Round 2

The Bears selected a middle linebacker in the second round Friday – and no, it was not Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o.

Instead, the Bears selected Jonathan Bostic from the Florida Gators with the No. 50 overall pick of the second round. Bostic might not be as much of a household name as Te’o, but he was a productive four-year player for one of the top teams in the SEC.
