"Everybody knows that I"m a better back than he is ... he knows that I"m a better running back than he is." Thats what Saskatchewan Roughriders running back Kory Sheets said about Jon Cornish, according to Riders radio voice Rod Petersen of 620 CKRM. But a look at the numbers tells a different story. In 13 games this season, Sheets has run for 1,408 yards and 11 touchdowns an average of 5.6 yards per carry while adding 33 catches for 259 yards through the air. Cornish on the other hand, leads the league in rushing 1,545 yards and 11 scores in 14 games with the Calgary Stampeders this season. Hes already broken his own single-season rushing record for a non-import and has an additional 320 yards and two touchdowns through the air this year. While its true Sheets would almost certainly have more rushing yards than Cornish had injury not robbed him of nearly three games this year, he still has more rushing attempts 251 compared to 215 than the New Westminster, BC native. The stat that really sticks out is Cornishs yards per carry average, 1.6 yards more than Sheets at 7.2 Sheets is the more used back perhaps, but the better back? With three games left on the schedule, Cornish appears a lock as the leagues Most Outstanding Player. But if we remember back to the first half of the season - when the Riders were still undefeated - all the talk was about Sheets for the award. Had he not been injured would the conversation be changed? The CFL loves record-breakers and Cornish is just that for the second year in a row. But Sheets too was on pace to break a record, the all-time single season rushing title, before injury struck. The Rouge asks: Who is the better running back, Kory Sheets or Jon Cornish?

Holaday drove in Austin Jackson with a two-out bunt single in the ninth, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 4-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night. Holaday said he focused on White Sox third baseman Marcus Semien before going for the bunt hit against Ronald Belisario. "I noticed he was staring in and then he backed up and I thought I had a good chance to lay it down," the catcher said. Jackson bolted for home while Holaday beat the throw to first. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said he was calling for the bunt, but he wasnt sure if the message ever got to Holaday. "I dont know if he heard us or saw it on his own and took advantage," Ausmus said. "(Holaday) is not a speed merchant but hes not slow. . Hes got the ability to beat it out." Jackson started the winning rally when he reached third on a one-out error by right fielder Dayan Viciedo. Belisario (1-3) pitched two innings, allowing one hit and striking out three. Holaday, a late lineup addition, went 2 for 4. White Sox starter Jose Quintana struck out a season-high 10 in six innings, but received a no-decision for the third time this season. The left-hander allowed three runs and eight hits. Justin Verlander allowed three runs and six hits in seven innings for Detroit. It was the right-handers 176th quality start since 2006. The White Sox jumped ahead with three runs in the third. Adam Eaton doubled home Semien and then scored on Gordon Beckhams base hit. Adam Dunn drove in Beckham with a two-out double to right. Detroit got one back on Victor Martinezs RBI single in the fourth, and then tied with two runs in Quintanas laast inning.dddddddddddd The Tigers collected four straight two-out hits. Torii Hunters RBI single scored Miguel Cabrera and Jacksons base hit drove in Martinez. "He was doing pretty good, but you run into that part of the lineup, if youre not perfect, that can happen," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said of Quintana. "With Cabrera, then you go to Victor, so unless youre on it and youre throwing it right where you want, that can happen, it can sneak up on you." Quintana struck out Nick Castellanos to close his final inning. Alejandro De Aza tripled with one out in the seventh but was stranded when Verlander struck out Semien and Eaton. Verlander walked three and struck out four. "I was a little out of rhythm after six days off," he said. "After the third inning I kind of established a rhythm and got back to the way I should and have some quick innings." Tigers catcher Nick Avila was a late scratch with lower back spasms. He was replaced about 2 1/2 hours prior to the game by Holaday. NOTES: Ausmus said RHP Anibal Sanchezs finger "looked good" and he is scheduled to do informal throwing Wednesday. Sanchez was placed on the disabled list April 27 with a laceration on his right middle finger, and that "rawness kind of seems to have gone away," Ausmus said. "Its just a matter now of building up the skin on the end of that finger where it can take the friction of a baseball coming off of it again." ... The Tigers entered Tuesday after two days off having played just 21 games - the fewest in baseball. ... White Sox left-hander Chris Sale, sidelined with a left flexor strain, remains unlikely to pitch into this weekend.
