Not that there was any real reason to think Marshawn Lynch would be going anywhere prior to Tuesday's 1 p.m. NFL trade deadline. But just in case, Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Monday that's one idea that can be erased.
The Kansas City Royals will turn to 23-year-old rookie Yordano Ventura to save their season in Game 6 of the World Series. He happens to be the hardest-throwing starting pitcher in the major leagues.
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras, 22, died in a car accident in the Dominican Republic.
With every pitch, Madison Bumgarner etched his place among the World Series greats. The 6-foot-5 lefty kept slinging away and put the San Francisco Giants one victory from yet another championship, throwing a four-hitter to beat the Kansas City Royals 5-0 for a 3-2 advantage in the Series.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll had a lot to say Monday following the team's 13-9 win at Carolina that improved the Seahawks' record to 4-3 and snapped a two-game losing streak. Here's the official transcript:

Sophomore quarterback Cyler Miles took first-team snaps with the Huskies' No. 1 offense on Monday morning and UW coach Chris Petersen reiterated that Miles will start against Colorado on Saturday (10 a.m. PT, Pac-12 Networks).
The recruiting news has been positive for Washington lately, however, the Huskies received their first setback in awhile when Canadian standout Jermaine Haley announced he's re-opening his recruitment after committing to Washington in July.
