Seattle Defender Torres Out For Season With Knee Injury

SEATTLE (AP) - Sounders central defender Roman Torres will miss the rest of the MLS season after suffering a knee injury last weekend against San Jose.

Seattle confirmed Torres is out for the year on Monday after the captain of the Panama national team underwent an MRI. The team said it would have no other comment until Tuesday.

Torres signed with Seattle in mid-August after helping Panama reach the Gold Cup semifinals. Torres previously played for Millonarios in Colombia and is regarded as the top defender on Panama's national team. Torres has six international goals since 2013 and scored in Panama's loss to Mexico in the Gold Cup semifinals in July.

Torres was injured just before halftime of Seattle's 1-1 draw with San Jose. He appeared in four matches for Seattle.

Rockies Take Advantage Of Error, Beat Seattle 3-2

SEATTLE (AP) - Nolan Arenado hit a sacrifice fly for his 110th RBI of the season, Colorado scored a pair of runs on Kyle Seager's throwing error and the Rockies beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Sunday.

Arenado, the National League leader in RBIs, capped a third inning when the Rockies scored without a base hit. Charlie Blackmon walked, advanced to second on a groundout, stole third and scored on Arenado's fly ball to deep right field. The Rockies added two more an inning later when Willin Rosario doubled leading off, Justin Morneau walked. Both scored when Seager overthrew catcher Steven Baron trying to cut down Rosario at the plate after Dustin Garneau hit a weak groundball to third. It was the 16th error of the season for Seager.

Kyle Kendrick (6-12) allowed two runs over five innings to pick up his second straight victory.

Rams Answer Late, Shock Seahawks 34-31

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Greg Zuerlein kicked a 37-yard field goal in overtime and the St. Louis Rams survived an 18-point fourth quarter rally by the Seattle Seahawks, beating the two-time defending NFC champions 34-31 on Sunday.

Down 31-24 with 53 seconds left, the Rams tied the game after Seahawks defensive back Dion Bailey stumbled on Lance Kendricks' 37-yard touchdown catch. Cary Williams' strip of Nick Foles and 8-yard return had put Seattle up by a touchdown.

The Seahawks opened overtime with an onside kick, as Bradley Marquez caught Steven Hauschka's popped-up attempt. Officials ruled the ball was kicked directly in the air, so Marquez was OK to signal for a fair catch.

After Zuerlein gave the Rams the lead, the defense stopped Marshawn Lynch on 4th-and-1 from the St. Louis 42 to end the game.

The Rams sacked Russell Wilson six times.

High School Football

Shelton hung with Sumner for the first 35 minutes and found themselves down by just 11 points at the half and well into the third quarter. But Connor Wedington and Josh Riley proved to be too much for the Highclimbers and the Spartans pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 34-3 win at Highclimbers Stadium.

Wedington tallied 157 yards on the ground including rushing touchdowns of nine, 61 and eight yards and added an interception of Shelton quarterback Tyler Giraldes. Josh Riley broke the game open at the end of the third quarter with a 50 yard touchdown run that put the Spartans up 21-3. Kolby Nikolaisen finished off the game by ripping the ball out of the hands of a Highclimbers running back and waltzing into the end zone to put Sumner up 34-3.

Both Wedington and Nikolaisen had long touchdowns called back on penalties. Wedington went for a 53 yard scamper that didn’t count and Nikolaisen intercepted a pass and took it to the house minutes before getting the fumble recovery that did make it into the score book.

Willy Ruiz rushed for 141 yards for the Highclimbers while Tyler Giraldes threw for 82 yards. Cody Bragg’s 25 yard field goal in the first quarter were the only points that Shelton could muster. Kyle Kimball intercepted a pass from Sumner QB Luke Ross and Giraldes hit Skylar Ross for 30 yards on the next play. But penalties derailed the drive near the goal line before Bragg’s field goal cut the Sumner lead to four points at 7-3.

Shelton fell to 1-1 in their two non-conference games and will open 3A Narrows League play against Foss at Mount Tahoma Stadium next week. Sumner moved to 2-0 and will face Enumclaw at home on Friday night.
