After a non-conference season filled with injuries — the Cyclones lost four starting-caliber players for various portions of time — Iowa State came together like, well, a Cyclone in early league play.

Astros' Gurriel may face MLB discipline over racist gesture toward Dodgers' Darvish -
Houston first baseman Yuli Gurriel contributed to the win with a home run early on. Yet the homer is not the act most people will remember from him -- rather, that would be what he did in the dugout afterward.
