  • Julio Urias pitched with a heavy heart in Game 7 of the NL Championship Series, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers advance to the World Series a night after his grandmother died. Enrique Hernandez shared the news with teammates and asked the Dodgers to toast Urias before popping champagne following a 5-1 win against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night. The left-handed Urias got one of the biggest outs of the game in the fifth inning after relieving starter Walker Buehler. Urias allowed a line drive to Christian Yelich that left fielder Chris Taylor caught on the warning track with a sliding effort. Urias also pitched in Game 6, and this was the first time in his career he pitched on consecutive days. Urias debuted as a teenager in 2016 but missed most of the next two seasons due to shoulder issues. The 22-year-old returned this September and has been pitching out of the bullpen. He's allowed a run in 3 1/3 innings this postseason. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
  • Parliamentary elections in Afghanistan have entered into a second day following violence and chaos that caused delays and interruptions on the first day of polling. Independent Elections Commission Chairman Abdul Badi Sayat says over 3 million people out of 8.8 registered voters cast their ballots on Saturday. The biggest turnout was in Kabul and the lowest in southern Uruzgan province. Polling on Sunday continues in 401 voting centers, including 45 in Kabul. Twenty-seven civilians and 11 Afghan security forces were killed and more than 100 others wounded in nearly 200 attacks on election day across the country.
  • President Donald Trump says he will exit a landmark arms control agreement the United States signed with the former Soviet Union. He says Russia is violating the pact and it's preventing the U.S. from developing new weapons. The 1987 pact, which helps protect the security of the U.S. and its allies in Europe and the Far East, prohibits the United States and Russia from possessing, producing or test-flying a ground-launched cruise missile with a range of 300 to 3,400 miles. Trump said Saturday that 'Russia has violated the agreement. They have been violating it for many years.' The agreement has constrained the U.S. from developing new weapons, but Trump said America will begin developing them unless Russia and China agree not to possess or develop the weapons.
  • Cody Bellinger is the MVP of the NL Championship Series. All it took was a couple of big swings. Bellinger hit a two-run homer to help the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 in Game 7 on Saturday night. Last season's NL Rookie of the Year also singled home the winning run in the 13th inning of a 2-1 victory in Game 4. The 23-year-old Bellinger opened the playoffs with an 0-for-15 slide and finished with just five hits in the series against Milwaukee. But he certainly made the most of them. 'All postseason I felt fairly good. I wasn't seeing any results,' he said. 'And luckily for me I've got a lot of veterans on this team. They said stick with the process and the results will come. And that's exactly what I did and it showed.' Bellinger's .200 batting average matched Boston Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. for the lowest by a position player selected MVP of a league championship series — with each coming this postseason in the year of the strikeout. Bellinger and Bradley face off in the World Series beginning Tuesday night at Fenway Park. Bellinger and the Dodgers also played in the World Series last year, losing to the Houston Astros in seven games. 'We know how hard it is to make the World Series. To do it two years in a row is really special,' he said. 'I know how lucky I am to be a part of it two years in a row. 'We've got a tough series against the Red Sox that's coming up. But we're going to enjoy this right now and get our mind turned around tomorrow.' ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
  • A Pittsburgh hospital worker is in the Allegheny County Jail, charged with rape and sexual assault. >> Read more trending news According to police, the alleged victim was a patient. The details in the criminal complaint are disturbing. An employee of LifeCare Hospital, a mental health facility in Wilkinsburg, contacted WPXI about the arrest of a fellow worker. She agreed to talk to us on the condition she remain anonymous. According to the criminal complaint, a former female patient of the hospital accused Adesile Solawon, 56, of repeatedly forcing her to have sex with him. The victim alleges the abuse happened when Solawon would 'sneak into her designated room' after a nurse gave her a sleep aid. She told police that Solawon told her 'to keep what was happening a secret.' Solawon was arrested this week for rape and sexual assault, among other charges. Back in August, he was suspended for inappropriately touching another patient, according to the criminal complaint. The employee said Solawon's return to work made her and others uncomfortable. WPXI contacted LifeCare Health Partners, the Texas-based company that operates the hospital, and were told there was no one locally that could respond to our inquiries tonight.
  • Craig Counsell and the Milwaukee Brewers relied on their bullpen all season long. Those hard-throwing relievers finally ran out of gas in the NL Championship Series. Josh Hader was brilliant as usual, but Jeremy Jeffress was tagged for a crucial three-run homer by Yasiel Puig and the Brewers never recovered, losing 5-1 to the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 7 on Saturday night. 'Devastated. We were right there,' Jeffress said. Milwaukee's deep bullpen played a key role in its closing push to a surprising NL Central title. Led by Hader, Jeffress and Corey Knebel, the Brewers led the National League with 42 wins by their relievers and finished second in the league with a 3.47 bullpen ERA. Counsell continued to lean on Hader and Co. in the playoffs, with the Milwaukee manager putting his own spin on the 'opener' strategy most notably employed by Tampa Bay this season. Brandon Woodruff replaced Gio Gonzalez after two innings in Game 1 against Los Angeles. Counsell had Wade Miley pitch to just one batter in Game 5 before pulling him, then started him again in Milwaukee's 7-2 victory Friday night in Game 6. But all those innings, getting up and down and warming up repeatedly, finally got to Milwaukee's bullpen in the NLCS — especially Jeffress. The Dodgers got a good, long look at the Brewers' best relievers in the first two games, and it helped them close out the series in Game 7. Milwaukee's starters had a 2.66 ERA in the NLCS, but they accounted for only 20 1/3 innings. The Brewers' bullpen allowed 17 of the Dodgers' 23 runs, finishing with a 3.38 ERA. Throw out Hader's 7 2/3 scoreless innings, and the bullpen ERA balloons to 4.06. Counsell brought in Hader after starter Jhoulys Chacin allowed two runs over two innings in Game 7. A rested Hader then tossed three innings of one-hit ball in his first appearance since Tuesday. Once the nasty left-hander departed, everything fell apart for Milwaukee. Xavier Cedeno allowed Max Muncy's leadoff single in the sixth before Jeffress came in. Justin Turner singled before Jeffress retired Manny Machado and Cody Bellinger. Just when it looked as if Jeffress might escape the jam, Puig drove a 1-1 pitch over the wall in left-center for his first homer of the series. 'This guy got outs better than anybody in the National League out of the bullpen this year,' Counsell said. 'He was wonderful. And the playoffs did not go well for him.' Puig was 0 for 5 with five strikeouts against Jeffress before he went deep. 'Yeah, it's baseball, man. I mean, it was a good pitch for me,' Jeffress said. 'That at-bat, the whole series, I've been throwing good pitches. They've just been getting hit.' Jeffress finished the inning, but the damage was done. The right-hander had a 7.71 ERA in the NLCS, allowing four runs and 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings. ___ Jay Cohen can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jcohenap ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
  • Despite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border, about 2,000 Central American migrants swam or rafted across a river separating that country from Guatemala, re-formed their mass caravan in Mexico and vowed to resume their journey toward the United States. The migrants, who said they gave up trying to enter Mexico legally because the asylum application process was too slow, gathered on Saturday at a park in the border city of Ciudad Hidalgo. They voted by a show of hands to continue north en masse, then marched to the bridge crossing the Suchiate River and urged those still on it to come join them. 'We are going to reach the United States,' said Erasmo Duarte, a migrant from Danli, Honduras, despite warnings to turn back this week from U.S. President Donald Trump, who has sought to make the caravan and border security in general into a campaign issue a little over two weeks before midterm elections. The decision to re-form the migrant caravan capped a day in which Mexican authorities again refused mass entry to migrants on the bridge, instead accepting small groups for asylum processing and giving out 45-day visitor permits to some of them. Authorities handed out numbers for people to be processed in a strategy seen before at U.S. border posts when dealing with large numbers of migrants. But many became impatient, and circumventing the border gate, swarmed across the river on rafts, swimming or wading in full view of the hundreds of Mexican police manning the blockade on the bridge. Some paid locals the equivalent of $1.25 to ferry them across the muddy waters. They were not detained on reaching the Mexican bank. 'We couldn't wait because we had already waited too long and they only told us lies,' said Duarte, who joined the caravan with his wife and children six days ago. Sairy Bueso, a 24-year old Honduran mother of two, was another migrant who abandoned the bridge and crossed into Mexico via the river. She clutched her 2-year-old daughter Dayani, who had recently had a heart operation, as she got off a raft. 'The girl suffered greatly because of all the people crowded' on the bridge, Bueso said. 'There are risks that we must take for the good of our children.' Group leaders said the caravan, which will be smaller than the original one, would strike out Sunday morning for the city of Tapachula. Where easily 3,000 people were on the bridge the previous day, the crowd had thinned out considerably by Saturday. In addition to those who crossed the river, immigration agents processed migrants in small groups and then bused them to an open-air, metal-roof fairground in Tapachula, where the Red Cross set up small blue tents on the concrete floor. Each time a small side gate opened to allow people to pass for processing, there was a crush of bodies as migrants desperately pushed forward. Scarleth Cruz hoisted a crying, sweat-soaked baby girl above the crowd, crying out: 'This girl is suffocating.' Cruz, 20, said she was going to ask for political asylum because of threats and repression she faced back in Honduras from President Juan Orlando Hernandez's governing party. 'Why would I want to go to the United States if I'm going to be persecuted' there as well, she said. Mexico's Interior Department said in a statement that it had received 640 refugee requests by Hondurans at the border crossing. It released photos of migrants getting off buses at a shelter and receiving food and medical attention. At least half a dozen migrants fainted. Some tore open a fence on the Guatemala side of the bridge and threw two young children, perhaps age 6 or 7, and their mother into the muddy waters about 40 feet below. They were rafted to safety in on the Mexican bank. Mexican workers handed food bottled water to the migrants on the bridge. Through the bars, a doctor gave medical attention to a woman who feared her young son was running a fever. Sustenance also came from Guatemalan locals — for Carlos Martinez, a 24-year-old from Santa Barbara, Honduras, the plate of chicken with rice was the first bite to eat he'd had all day. 'It is a blessing that they have given us food,' Martinez said. 'It gives me courage to keep waiting, as long as I can.' Migrants cited widespread poverty and gang violence in Honduras, one of the world's deadliest nations by homicide rate, as their reasons for joining the caravan. 'One cannot live back there,' said Fidelina Vasquez, a grandmother traveling with her daughter and 2-year-old grandson, standing next to the main border gate. The caravan elicited a series of angry tweets and warnings from Trump early in the week, but Mexico's no-nonsense handling of the migrants at it southern border seems to have satisfied him more recently. 'So as of this moment, I thank Mexico,' Trump said Friday at an event in Scottsdale, Arizona. 'I hope they continue. But as of this moment, I thank Mexico. If that doesn't work out, we're calling up the military — not the Guard.' 'They're not coming into this country,' Trump added. 'The Mexican Government is fully engaged in finding a solution that encourages safe, secure, and orderly migration,' State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Saturday, 'and both the United States and Mexico continue to work with Central American governments to address the economic, security, and governance drivers of illegal immigration.' After an emergency meeting in Guatemala, presidents Hernandez of Honduras and Jimmy Morales of Guatemala said an estimated 5,400 migrants had entered Guatemala since the caravan was announced a week ago, and about 2,000 Hondurans have returned voluntarily. Morales said a Honduran migrant died in the town of Villa Nueva, about 20 miles (30 kilometers) from Guatemala City, when he fell from a truck. Some Hondurans were weary of the journey and disappointed by the violence at the crossing, and just wanted to head home. 'We thought the caravan was passive but there were unruly people, I was disappointed,' said Gonzalo Martinez, a 37-year-old farmer, as he boarded a bus in Tecun Uman, Guatemala to take him back to Honduras. ___ Mark Stevenson reported from Ciudad Hidalgo, and Sonia Perez D. reported from Tecun Uman, Guatemala.

  • Nikola Jokic scored 35 points, posted a triple-double and didn't miss a field goal in leading the Denver Nuggets past the Phoenix Suns 119-91 Saturday night. Jokic, who had 10 assists and 10 rebounds, joined Wilt Chamberlain as the only players in NBA history to post a triple-double with 30 or more points without missing a field goal. Chamberlain did it twice, in 1966 and '67. Jokic made all 11 of his shots from the floor and missed just one of 11 free throws on a night the crowd serenaded him with chants of 'MVP! MVP!' Jamal Murray added 26 points for the Nuggets, who are off to their first 2-0 start since 2011-12 and will go for their first 3-0 start since 2009-10 when they host the two-time defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors on Sunday night. They'll be without starting forward Will Barton, who injured his right hip on a reverse layup in the third quarter and was wheeled off the court in obvious distress. Devin Booker's 25 points led the Suns. Barton's injury took some air out of the Pepsi Center, where Jokic stretched Denver's 65-49 halftime lead to 81-59 on a dunk, which was followed by a 3-pointer from Murray for a 25-point lead midway through the third quarter. The intriguing matchup between Jokic and top overall draft pick Deandre Ayton down low never really materialized. Ayton, who had 18 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in his debut against Dallas, scored 5 points on 2-of-7 shooting. Phoenix coach Igor Kokoskov knew it was going to be a learning experience as his prized rookie worked against Jokic. 'He makes everybody else better. He's a tricky player. He's going to try to sell a lot of tricks to Deandre,' Kokoskov said before tipoff. 'Deandre has to play smart. He has to play to his strengths, his energy and high motor. He also has to match all of his tricks.' He didn't come close, and neither did the Suns. TIP-INS: Suns: Phoenix was without G Troy Daniels, who sustained a concussion at practice. 'It was a contact practice, guys were scrimmaging and it happened right in front of me,' Kokoskov said. 'It didn't look that hard but he didn't pass the test. He's in concussion protocol and he's expected to come back in a few days.' Nuggets: Denver was 31-10 at home last season, fourth-best in the NBA. ... Murray tried to get too fancy on a steal and layup and was stripped when he tried to go behind his back before scoring. ... The Nuggets' second string kept letting the Suns back in the game as Phoenix's big runs came when Denver's starters were getting breathers on the bench. The Nuggets were outscored 13-2 at the end of the third quarter and saw their lead go from 25 to 13. UP NEXT Suns: visit Golden State Warriors on Monday night. Nuggets: host Golden State Warriors on Sunday night. ___ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/tag/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports ___ Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton

  • KRMG has previously told you about the Gathering Place banning firearms. Gerry Bender, Tulsa’s Litigation Division manager, recently told the Tulsa World police won't arrest people who violate the park's gun policy. This is reportedly because of concerns such an action would be legally challenged. Under state law, firearms are allowed to be carried on property designated by a governmental authority as a park, recreational area or fairgrounds. “TPD has had a presence at the Gathering Place since its opening and will continue to do so in order for the citizens of Tulsa to enjoy the park in a safe environment,” a Tulsa police statement reads.  “We maintain the legal authority to enforce all ordinances and State laws applicable to private spaces open to the public.” Do you believe people should be allowed to have firearms at the Gathering Place?  Let us know in the comments.  
  • You can put away your umbrella in the Tulsa area today. National Weather Service Meteorologist Chuck Hodges says we have a beautiful fall day ahead of us. “Fog should be clearing out,” Hodges said.  “We should have plenty of sun.  We are looking at highs probably in the lower 70’s.” The normal high for Tulsa this time of year is in the mid-70’s.   If you have outdoor plans Saturday night, bring a heavy coat.  The low will be close to 37 degrees.
  • This Saturday marks the 45th anniversary of the infamous ‘Saturday Night Massacre,’ when an embattled President Richard Nixon fired the special Watergate prosecutor, but only after both the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General refused to carry out the President’s orders, and resigned from their positions. The move by President Nixon came during an ongoing legal dispute over the release of the Watergate tapes – recordings made in the Oval Office by a secret taping system that the President had installed – which ultimately contained evidence that forced Nixon from office. Special Watergate Prosecutor Archibald Cox wanted all the tapes for his investigation, but even with the backing of a federal court order, President Nixon refused to turn them over, instead offering summaries, an offer that Cox refused to accept. “I’m not looking for a confrontation,” Cox told an October 20, 1973 news conference at the National Press. “I’m certainly not out to get the President of the United States.” Several hours later, Nixon ordered that Cox be fired. The President first asked Attorney General Elliot Richardson to fire Cox. Richardson refused and quickly resigned. The same request the went to Deputy Attorney General Williams Ruckleshaus. Like Richardson, Ruckleshaus also refused and quit. Finally, the firing of Cox was carried out by Solicitor General Robert Bork. It’s a scenario that some have focused on, wondering if President Donald Trump might try to end the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 elections. In an op-ed in August of 2018, Ruckleshaus drew parallels between Watergate and the current battle over the Russia investigation. “President Trump is acting with a desperation I’ve seen only once before in Washington,” Ruckleshaus wrote. “45 years ago when President Richard M. Nixon ordered the firing of special Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox.” “Nixon was fixated on ending the Watergate investigation, just as Trump wants to shut down the Mueller investigation,” Ruckleshaus added. It took until late July of 1974 for the U.S. Supreme Court to finally order Nixon to turn over the tapes – in a unanimous 8-0 ruling. Nixon resigned soon after, on August 8, 1974.
  • Federal prosecutors in New York announced the arrest on Friday of a man who allegedly threatened to murder and assault a pair of U.S. Senators for their support of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, as police say the suspect placed a series of threatening telephone calls in which the man threatened to shoot the Senators if they supported the Kavanaugh nomination. In court documents unsealed on Friday, a special agent with the U.S. Capitol Police detailed a number of voice mails left by the suspect, identified as Ronald DeRisi of Smithtown, on Long Island in New York. The expletive-filled messages came during the final stages of debate on the Kavanaugh nomination, some as Kavanaugh testified for a second time before the Senate Judiciary Committee, on the same day as a woman who accused him of sexual misconduct back when they were in high school. “The male caller, who did not identify himself on the recording, stated in relevant part, that he had a “present” for Senator-1, specifically: “It’s a nine millimeter,” court documents stated. “He’s a dead man! Nine millimeter, side of the f—ing head!” police quoted the phone threats. More voice mails were allegedly left by DeRisi after Kavanaugh had been confirmed by the Senate, as he called a second Senator’s office and left threatening messages. “I’m gonna get you,” police quoted the message. “Don’t you know that guy’s a sex offender?” At one point, the suspect allegedly read off the home address of the second Senator; it was not immediately clear from the court documents what two Senators had been targeted by the phone calls. Court documents show that DeRisi pled guilty in 2015 to making threatening phone calls, and that police compared the telphone evidence from the two cases.
