Ian Desmond has 3-hit night in four at-bats to help lead the Nats to a 4-0 win over the Padres Saturday.
Desmond, who was one of just four infielders last season to hit at least 18 home runs and steal at least 14 bases, has finally begun to heat up as he is 6-for-9 over his last two games with two doubles, three RBI, two run scored, a stolen base, and no strikeouts. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Lions will not use the franchise tag on DT Ndamukong Suh.
There has been a lot of back-and-forth internally as to whether the Lions want to bring Suh back and obviously cost is a major issue as he will command quite the hefty salary on the open market. But they won't use the franchise tag here as they know the bitterness it will cause between player and team. Look for the Lions to make the defensive lineman a competitive offer but they won't break the bank to keep him. Analysis: Howard Bender
