•Rich Harden and three Rangers relievers combined to come within two outs of a no-hitter, before Joe Mauer broke it up. It was the fifth no-hitter lost in the ninth this season. I guess those pitchers were just saving it for the Rays.
•Of the 120 FBS schools, more than half turned a profit on football and basketball, though only 14 schools' athletic departments are profitable overall. Still want to talk about paying student athletes? Most businesses won't pay big salaries while they lose money, except for on Wall Street.

•Albert Pujols hit his 399th career home run, which just happened to give him 24 homers and a .385 average at PNC Park, leading pundits to speculate why he does so well in that ballpark. Hint: it's the Pirates, not the stadium.
