CHICAGO -- With the Chicago Cubs in desperate need of a win, manager Joe Maddon put Jason Heyward in right field for Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday night.Its the first start for the slumping Heyward since he went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts in Game 5 of the NL Championship Series at Los Angeles. The 27-year-old Heyward, who signed a $184 million, eight-year contract with Chicago last winter, did not play in the World Series opener at Cleveland and entered each of the last two games as a pinch runner before staying in to play right.The Cubs trailed 2-1 in the best-of-seven series heading into Saturday nights game at Wrigley Field.The Indians also made a couple of intriguing changes with ace Corey Kluber on the mound, putting Rajai Davis in left and moving Carlos Santana to first base. That meant Mike Napoli was out of the starting lineup for the first time in the postseason after playing a key role in Clevelands run to the AL pennant.With Kluber pitching, Id like us to have a good defense out there, manager Terry Francona said. I labored back and forth on our first baseman. I hated like crazy not playing Napoli. I physically hate it. But Naps going to play tomorrow against the lefty, and we may put Santana back in the outfield tomorrow again. Well see. I just thought tonight it would serve us better, even having Nap out of the lineup, to have a defense in there and with Rajai playing.Heyward is 2 for 31 with nine strikeouts in 12 playoff games this year, continuing his struggles from the regular season. He hit .230 with a career-low seven homers in 142 games.For right now pretty much just go play without overthinking it right now, Maddon said. Just go play and just contribute to us winning somehow. But absolutely its something that needs to be addressed and he will address it in the offseason. I have a lot of faith in him going into next year.Maddon also moved second baseman Javier Baez down one spot in the order to eighth. The 23-year-old Baez, the co-MVP of the NLCS with pitcher Jon Lester, went 0 for 4 in Chicagos 1-0 loss on Friday night, striking out with runners on second and third to end the game.The last couple nights maybe shows that he is 22 or 23 years of age, Maddon said. Maybe finally he demonstrates that. Again, what that requires more than anything is just talking to him. Having him getting back to the approach that made him so successful for the last two series in the latter part of the season.

Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race.

The scientists believe the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was likely greater than Lynchs famous "beast quake" touchdown run three years ago, which also came against New Orleans during a playoff game. J.T. Barrett was big-time in prime time last week and has two more showcase games in the next three weeks to boost his Heisman Trophy hopes.The Ohio State quarterback still has a long way to go to be a threat to Louisvilles Heisman front-runner Lamar Jackson, but if he is going to make a move now is the time. Barrett and the No. 2 Buckeyes are in the Saturday night slot on ABC again this week when they visit Penn State.Ohio State moves off the main stage the next week when it plays Northwestern at home before another prime-time game against No. 8 Nebraska, which could be a matchup of unbeaten teams.Against Wisconsin last week, Barrett ran for two touchdowns and threw what turned out to be the game-winner in overtime. Heisman voters like clutch and Barrett was at his best leading the Buckeyes from behind in the second half and to the win in OT.At a time when fans can watch a football game on their phones while pretending to pay attention to a kids soccer match, you might think playing nationally televised night games is not so important for a Heisman Trophy contender. But performing well in the spotlight still helps a lot.1. Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville (21 points)Last week: Jackson had an off night passing against Duke (13 for 26 for 181 yards) but his 144 yards and a touchdown on the ground made up for it. Even in a spotty performance Jackson has spectacular moments.This week: North Carolina State. The Wolfpack just lost to Clemson in overtime last week so Jackson can make a counter-point to Deshaun Watsons performance.2 (tie). Jake Browning, QB, Washington (8 points)Last week: Off.This week: Oregon State, which has the fifth-best defense in the Pac-12 at 5.27 yards allowed per play.2 (tie). Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson (8 points)Last week: Watson threw for a season-high 378 yards and the winning touchdown in overtime against North Carolina State. If not for a missed chip-shot field goal by the Wolfpack, the lasting memory of this game for Watson probably would have been the first pick-six of his career.TThis week: Off.dddddddddddd3. J.T. Barrett, QB, Ohio State (4 points)Last week: Barrett passed for 226 yards and ran for 92 and two touchdowns against Wisconsin. He was 4 for 4 for 40 yards in overtime.This week: at Penn State, which has the eighth-best defense in the Big Ten at 5.34 yards allowed per play.4. Greg Ward Jr., QB, Houston (1 point)Last week: Ward had his best rushing game of the season in a wild win against Tulsa with 147 yards.This week: at SMU, which has the ninth-best defense in the American Athletic Conference at 5.48 yards allowed per play.FIVE MORE TO WATCH- Jabil Peppers, LB/QB/PR, Michigan. Peppers needs to follow up that eye-catching performance against Rutgers two weeks ago to keep momentum going. Good time to play Illinois.- Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State. Of all those high-profile running backs that were getting Heisman hype in the preseason (Christian McCaffrey, Leonard Fournette, Nick Chubb), only Cook is still in the race.- Donnel Pumphrey, RB, San Diego State. The senior has 1,111 yards rushing in six games and needs 1,014 more to break Wisconsin Heisman winner Ron Daynes NCAA career record of 6,397 yards.- Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma. Two early losses bumped Mayfield to the back of the Heisman line, but he is the third-highest rated passer in the nation (180.36).- Jalen Hurts, QB, Alabama. The freshmans numbers arent gaudy, but he has accounted for 17 touchdowns (nine passing, eight rushing) and being the quarterback of the best team in the country is worth something.---Poll panel: AP Heisman watch panel: National Writer Paul Newberry, Georgia; Sports Writer Stephen Hawkins, Texas; Sports Writer John Marshall, Arizona; Sports Writer Joedy McCreary, North Carolina; Sports Writer Eric Olson, Nebraska; Sports Writer Steve Megargee, Tennessee; College Football Writer Ralph D.
