San Diego State thinks it has Heisman contender on campus – USA Today
If the Aztecs flourish this fall — and as owners of an active 10-game winning streak, there’s ample cause for optimism — it will be in large part as a result of one player in particular: senior running back Donnel Pumphrey, a preseason Heisman Trophy candidate and the heir to Marshall Faulk’s legacy at the position.

Cashner’s grit paves way for Padres’ comeback –
Cashner put forth one of the grittiest efforts by a Padres pitcher this season. He needed 57 pitches to get through the first two innings, but faced the minimum after a leadoff single in the third as he finished an impressive six innings. The gutty effort allowed the Padres to rally and get him a much-deserved victory.

The win gave the Padres their second consecutive series victory. They have won 4 out of their last 5 games and are now just 3.5 games out of first place in the NL West. They’ll go for the sweep against the Colorado Rockies today, with first pitch at 12:30pm PT, and you can catch all of the action on 1090AM.

Even if Erlin and opening-day starter Tyson Ross weren’t on the disabled list, San Diego would be scouting Lincecum, a two-time Cy Young winner attempting to come back from September hip surgery.
