AMES, Iowa -- Establishing the run has been something Iowa State has wanted to accomplish all season. Carolina Hurricanes T-shirts .The Cyclones finally found their ground game in last weeks win at Kansas and theyre hoping that blueprint can help them finish yet another lost season on a high note.Iowa State (2-8, 1-6 Big 12) rushed for 238 yards on 46 carries in a 31-24 victory over the Jayhawks that snapped a five-game losing skid. True freshman David Montgomery led the way with a career-high, 169-yard effort that earned him Big 12 newcomer of the week honors.Montgomery and the Cyclones host Texas Tech (4-6, 2-5) Saturday as part of a two-game home stand to close out 2016.A lot of what David has done is a credit to his process and his work ethic. I really appreciate his detail and maturity, Iowa State coach Matt Campbell said. Hes really worked hard at studying the game on film and being locked in.Despite a makeshift offensive line, Iowa State thought it had a chance to be a decent running team because it had Mike Warren, the nations leading freshman running back in 2015.But with Warren struggling with an ankle injury, Montgomery stepped in and gave the Cyclones a welcome boost.Montgomery, a Cincinnati native who rushed for 41 touchdowns on 10.1 yards per carry as a high school senior a year ago, was one of the most promising players in Campbells first recruiting class. Campbell immediately saw Montgomerys speed as an asset for a program with needs across the board.Montgomery averaged at least four yards per carry in each of his first seven Big 12 games. He is at 5.1 yards per carry overall, despite not getting much of a chance to develop the rhythm that comes with extended playing time.The promise Montgomery showed in a 34-24 loss to No. 8 Oklahoma two weeks ago came to fruition against the Jayhawks. He averaged seven yards a carry as Iowa State scored 28 of the games final 38 points.At some point you go with the hot hand too. And he had the hot hand, Campbell said. The tenacity that he was running with on Saturday led us to say that we really (keep) giving the ball to the guy whos really running well.But the most surprising development in Iowa States rushing attack has been the rise of walk-on Mitchell Harger.Harger, a redshirt senior from Alburnett, Iowa, a town of less than 1,000 people, spent his first three years with the Cyclones as a special teams player. His only notable moment came last year at West Virginia, when he converted a fake punt.But with Iowa State trailing Kansas 24-16, Campbell gave Harger a chance as a lead back for one series.Harger ran the ball eight times out of nine plays, driving Iowa State down the field before scoring from six yards out on third-and-goal.Harger might not play much more this season as Warren gets healthier and Montgomery continues to improve. But Hargers work ethic and attitude have rubbed off on a team still learning what it takes to win consistently.He comes in here every single day and he hasnt complained once, wide receiver Allen Lazard said. Hes always worked extremely hard. Hes just happy to be here. It just makes me appreciate my life because I am a scholarship guy.---More college football at Teuvo Teravainen Hurricanes Jersey Authentic . -- Adam Snyder returned to the San Francisco 49ers this season because the offensive lineman thought it was his best opportunity to win a championship. Justin Faulk Hurricanes Jersey Authentic . The Canadian squad, skipped by Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg, got on the board first with two in the second end, and followed that with two more apiece in the fourth and sixth ends. http:///...ricanes-jersey-c-17/ . Denis Coderre, the former federal MP who was elected mayor on Nov. 3, has drawn the ire of some Montreal Canadiens. During last nights game he tweeted: "Hello? Can we get a one-way ticket to (minor-league) Hamilton for David Desharnais please. TORONTO -- The New York Yankees offense has disappeared, and their playoffs chances have pretty much vanished, too.Jose Bautista hit a three-run homer off Tyler Clippard in the eighth inning, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Yankees 3-0 Saturday.New York has been shut out in three straight games for the first time July 27-28, 1975.Whatever were doing right now, its not working, first baseman Mark Teixeira said. We just seem to have lost it the last few days.The Yankees have lost 10 of 13 following a seven-game winning streak and dropped 4 1/2 games back for the ALs second wild card with eight games left. They likely will miss the playoffs for the third time in four years.You keep fighting. Thats all you can do, manager Joe Girardi said.New York has been held scoreless an AL-high 13 times this season, including six times in September. The Yankees have not scored since Donovan Solanos two-run homer in the ninth inning of Wednesdays win at Tampa Bay and have gone 0 for 16 with runners in scoring position in their last three games, stranding 20 runners.You become disappointed when theres a lack of effort, Girardi said. Theres no lack of effort. We had optional BP today and everybody hit, so theres no lack of effort.The major league record for consecutive shutout losses is four. The last to do it was the Chicago Cubs from April 27 to May 1, 1992.Toronto leads Baltimore by 1 1/2 games for the ALs top wild card, with Detroit another half-game back.Josh Donaldson singled with two outs in the eighth off Clippard (3-5), advanced on a wild pitch, and Edwin Encarnacion walked. Clippard fell behind 2-0 in the count and Bautista sent a fastball over the left-field wall, delighting the crowd of 47,828. Bautista reached 20 homers for the seventh straight season.I was definitely looking for a heater in that situation and I was lucky to make good contact, Bautista said.Jason Grilli (7-5) allowed a two-out triple to Ronald Torreyes in the eighth. Pinchh-hitter Billy Butler fouled off three straight pitches, then swung past a 94 mph fastball. Bryan Bickell Hurricanes Jersey Authentic. . Grilli pumped his hands twice, pounded his glove and pumped his hands again.I got a pitch I should have hit and fouled it off, Butler said.Roberto Osuna pitched a one-hit ninth for his 35th save in 38 chances, completing Torontos second straight three-hitter.Yankees starter CC Sabathia, 0-2 in his last six starts, allowed four hits and three walks in seven innings. Torontos Marcus Stroman gave up one hit in seven innings -- Aaron Hicks single in the second.We didnt have too many opportunities today, Girardi said. Stroman kept us in check. We just werent able to get anything going off him.BORDER BLUESNew York has lost seven straight games at Rogers Centre, matching a franchise-worst streak. The Yankees also lost seven straight in Toronto in 1992 and 1993.POWER PACKBautista is the sixth Blue Jays player to reach the 20-homer plateau, the most since 2010. He joins Encarnacion (42), Donaldson (36), Michael Saunders (24), Troy Tulowitzki (24) and Russell Martin (20).MAKING THEM MATTERBautista has 16 career home runs that have given his team a lead in the eighth inning or later, including 14 with Toronto.TRAINERS ROOMYankees: 3B Chase Headley (back) and Teixeira (neck) were held out of the starting lineup. Headley went 0 for 7 Thursday and Friday after sitting out the previous three games. Teixeira entered as a defensive replacement in the eighth.UP NEXTRHP Michael Pineda (6-11, 4.89) starts for New York in Sundays series finale and RHP Marco Estrada (9-9, 3.62) for Toronto.
