Eric Coughlin The Detroit News Published 11:12 PM EDT Aug 30, 2019 Detroit — Warren De La Salle football may be back-to-back Division 2 champions, but Muskegon has its number. For the second straight season, De La Salle lost to Muskegon in the Xenith Prep Kickoff Classic at Wayne State to open the season, this time a 41-7 drubbing. “I know we’re really good,” Muskegon coach Shane Fairfield said. “We showed it tonight against a great program. We’re really excited that the team (Muskegon) played so well on defense. On offense, I didn’t know that we were going to put 41 (points) on the board, but I knew we had the ability to.” Ohio State-commit Cameron Martinez was too much for De La Salle to handle on Friday night. The senior quarterback gashed the De La Salle defense to the tune of 182 yards on 21 carries with three touchdowns. Martinez struggled throwing but did chip in on the receiving end of things with a 12-yard catch. … [Read more...] about Cameron Martinez, Muskegon mash Warren De La Salle

BALTIMORE (AP) — Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a pair of three-run homers, Mookie Betts homered and had three RBIs, and the Boston Red Sox used their most prolific offensive performance of the year to blow out the Baltimore Orioles 17-6 Saturday night. Rafael Devers and Sandy Leon also went deep for the Red Sox, who have gone 10-5 in July to get into the AL playoff picture. Bradley’s second home run of the game highlighted an eight-run fourth inning that turned a tie into a 13-5 runaway. All eight runs were unearned, courtesy of a throwing error by shortstop Richie Martin. Boston really didn’t need the help. Betts and J.D. Martinez had three hits apiece, every starter scored at least once and the Red Sox amassed nine extra-base hits. It was Boston’s highest-scoring outburst since a 19-3 rout of Baltimore last Sept. 26. Rick Porcello (8-7) was the beneficiary of the robust support. The right-hander won his third straight start despite giving up six runs and 11 hits in … [Read more...] about Red Sox go on offensive, hit 3 HRs in 17-6 rout of Orioles

David Goricki The Detroit News Published 12:04 PM EST Feb 15, 2019 Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and new Wolverines offensive coordinator Josh Gattis traveled to the west side of the state a few weeks ago to take in a Muskegon basketball game. Harbaugh made sure Muskegon junior Cameron Martinez – a quarterback in football and a guard in basketball – knew he was there to continue to show interest and support in him. Martinez, who earned a spot on The Detroit News Dream Team, was offered by Michigan in November after having a strong season as Muskegon’s quarterback, helping his team reach the Division 3 state championship game at Ford Field. He is being recruited as an athlete. “Coach Harbaugh and Coach Gattis watched a game when we played Mona Shores here, watched Cameron and they like Billie Roberts, as well – our 6-5, 260-pound kid who played tight end and we’re moving him to tackle,” said Muskegon football coach Shane Fairfield. … [Read more...] about Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh, Josh Gattis get close look at Muskegon’s Cameron Martinez
