Dodgers 9, Cardinals 6, Final. Jansen with the save. Dodgers go 5-4 on their road trip to open the second half.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The Yankees are 36-3 when leading after six innings this year. They were 66-3 last year, according to ESPN's Stats and Info's Megan O'Donnell. In other words, Aroldis Chapman has put on a show in the 9th, but he hasn't really made the Yankees better.

These were the heartfelt opening comments of Nebraska coach Mike Riley to the media here in Lincoln tonight as he mourned Sam Foltz with the Nebraska football team: ""We are in one of those moments that you never, ever just want to think about having to go through.

You talk about broken-hearted, it's all there, all the parts, and this day will be stuck in time forever -- the news that you just can't connect or comprehend or understand."
