 starter Jason Vargas got knocked out early and Jason Frasor, Danny Duffy and Brandon Finnegan failed to provide the bridge to the back end of the bullpen in an 11-4 loss to the San Francisco Giants in Game 4 of the World Series.
 instead of being in control, the Royals are tied two games apiece with the Giants and will send struggling starter James Shields to the mound against San Francisco ace Madison Bumgarner in Game 5 on Sunday.
The Royals laughed in the dugout about Vargas' brain freeze and he took strike three on the next pitch to end the inning.
The Giants tied the game on a sacrifice fly by Juan Perez, but Duffy was lucky only one run scored on the play as center fielder Jarrod Dyson made a diving catch to rob the Giants of a hit.
The Mustangs got a 5-yard run from Brandon Howe with :48 left in the first half to make it 14-14 and Chris Brown engineered three straight touchdowns in the second half to take control.
Brown tossed 5 yards to Kori Garcia to give Cal Poly the lead, then ran 17 yards for a score in the final minute of the third quarter and ran 15 yards for another early in the fourth.
Alabama's Amari Cooper caught nine passes, scored two touchdowns and set an Alabama school game record with 224 yards receiving to help the No. 4 Crimson Tide beat Tennessee 34-20 on Saturday for its eighth consecutive victory in the series.
Cooper's big performance provided a triumphant return for Kiffin, the Alabama offensive coordinator who coached Tennessee in 2009 and angered Volunteers fans by leaving for Southern California after only one season.
Dobbs helped the Vols cut the lead to 27-17 in the third quarter before Alabama's Derrick Henry stopped Tennessee's momentum with a 28-yard touchdown run.
Alabama (7-1, 4-1) arrived at Neyland Stadium amid heavy security, but about 80 percent of the 1,000 or so fans who gathered to watch Alabama's players and coaches step off the team bus were Tide supporters.
On Alabama's first play from scrimmage, Cooper caught a short pass from Blake Sims, ran to his right and raced 80 yards down the Tide sideline.
The Vols entered the night having failed to score a touchdown in their last two SEC games, and they had to face Alabama without three injured starters:
Dobbs threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Josh Malone and got the Vols into range for Aaron Medley's 27-yard field goal on the final play of the half.
Orange County Sheriff's Lt. Jeff Hallock says investigators believe the shooting inside the Bliss Boutique in downtown San Clemente Saturday afternoon was a murder-suicide.
The Orange County Register reports (http://bit.ly/1FNGGuI) that after shots rang out, police swarmed the area and deployed a SWAT team because they initially thought someone might have been held captive.
The nurse who was quarantined at a New Jersey hospital because she had contact with Ebola patients in West Africa criticized the way her case has been handled, raising concerns from humanitarian and human rights groups over unclear policies for the newly launched quarantine program.
