Rowdies tie Indy Eleven

INDIANAPOLIS — The Rowdies earned a road point with a 1-1 draw against the NASL spring-season champion Indy Eleven on Saturday night.

Tampa Bay (7-8-7) scored first, with Justin Chavez putting in his first Rowdies goal in the 28th minute. Joe Cole sent in a lofted free kick from about 35 yards out that Chavez tapped between the legs of Indy goalkeeper Jon Busch at the back post.

Indy equalized six minutes later on a goal by Omar Gordon. A passing sequence was nearly broken up by Rowdies captain Tamika Mkandawire, but his touch wasn't enough to steer the ball clear of Gordon, who finished it cleanly past Matt Pickens.

"It was a good away performance," coach Stuart Campbell said. "We spoke before the match about the importance of getting a result tonight. We would've loved to have won, but that was a well-earned point."

    The Heater

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.
