The World Series was slipping away from the San Francisco Giants. A botched grounder led to a three-run deficit, and they were in danger of falling behind the Kansas City Royals three games to one. Pablo Sandoval’s single set up Hunter Pence to score the tying run in the fifth inning and the 2012 Series MVP followed with a go-ahead, two-run single in the sixth that sent the Giants surging past the Kansas City Royals 11-4 Saturday night at pulsating AT&T Park. The Series is tied at two games apiece, ensuring the title will be decided at Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium next week.

North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams said Friday night it’s a ”very sad time” at the school after an investigation found widespread academic fraud and adds that his program ”thought we were doing the right thing.” After his team’s exhibition victory, Williams spoke for the first time in response to a report released Wednesday that outlined how fraud ran unchecked in the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies (AFAM) department for nearly two decades. Williams said he was ”dumbfounded” by the details in the report and said UNC ”made some mistakes for a long time” that damaged the school’s reputation and led the NCAA to reopen its probe into academic misconduct here. Justice Department official Kenneth Wainstein called the system a ”shadow curriculum” running from 1993 to 2011 within the department. The report stated Williams and other coaches said they were aware there were independent study courses offering easy grades, but they didn’t know the classes were bogus.
