SPORTS BRIEFING

Three aces in one day

BOARDMAN — There were three holes-in-one at the Dave Ditzler Golf Outing at the Mill Creek North Course on Sunday.

Victor Considine aced the 133-yard eighth hole, while Judge R. Scott Krichbaum and Chris D’Apolito got their holes-in-one on the 167-yard 16th hole.

Verlander done until ’22

HOUSTON (AP) — Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander will undergo Tommy John surgery and is expected to be out through the 2021 season, ending his bid to make a late return for a playoff push.

The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner announced the news Saturday on his Instagram account in a 1 1/2-minute video.

“In my simulated game a couple days ago, I felt something in my elbow, and after looking at my MRI and conversing with some of the best doctors in the world, we’ve determined that Tommy John surgery is my best option,” Verlander said.

Seahawks stuff Newton

SEATTLE (AP) — Cam Newton was stopped at the 1-yard line on the final play and the Seattle Seahawks held off the New England Patriots 35-30 on Sunday night.

Newton led New England 80 yards in the closing moments, trying to spoil the performance of Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, who matched his career high with five touchdown passes.

Newton and the Patriots reached the 1 on a pass to N’Keal Harry with 3 seconds left. On the final play, Newton tried to run power to the left.
