Grider shines in Norris Insurance 5K run

(Continued)

The overtures were made Saturday, two days before MLB was poised to hand Rodriguez a lengthy suspension for his part in the Biogenesis case.

The people, who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because no public statements were authorized, say Rodriguez’s side reached out to the Yankees and that union head Michael Weiner contacted MLB Executive Vice President Rob Manfred.

The Yankees and MLB said they had no interest in such talks. There was always the chance, however, that further negotiations could take place at the last minute.

There hasn’t been any definite word on the severity of Rodriguez’s looming penalty. Possible, according to those familiar with the talks, was a suspension lasting until Aug. 31, 2014, the day before all teams are permitted to expand their rosters from 25 players to 40.

The 38-year-old, three-time MVP Rodriguez is yet to play in the majors this year.

Catchings helps Feverbeat short-handed Sky

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Tamika Catchings had 17 points and 10 rebounds to lead to lead the defending-champion Fever to a 79-58 win over the short-handed Chicago Sky on Saturday night.

Karima Christmas scored 12 points, including two timely 3-pointers in the third quarter for the Fever (9-10). Catchings also had five steals and four blocked shots.

Courtney Vandersloot had 11 points to lead the Sky (13-6), who were without leading-scorer Elena Delle Donne due to a concussion for the second straight game.

The Sky shot just 33 percent from the field and turned the ball over 14 times. When Indiana opened the second half on a 7-0 run to build a 15-point lead, the Sky couldn’t recover.
