RIO DE JANEIRO -- After making his Olympics debut by running in the mens 400-meter prelims one week ago, LSU senior Fitzroy Dunkley added the title of Olympic Silver Medalist to his name when he ran third leg on Jamaicas 4x400-meter relay team that finished runner-up to the United States in Saturdays final at the Olympic Stadium. Kolten Wong .Dunkley split 44.82 seconds on the third leg as he teamed with Peter Matthews (45.5), Nathon Allen (44.0) and Javon Francis (43.78) to become LSU Track & Fields 13th Olympic medalist in history.Jamaica was running third behind the United States and Botswana when Dunkley took the baton from Allen at the second exchange, and he handed off to Francis firmly in medal contention in third position at the final exchange. Francis surged passed Botswanas Gaone Leaname Maotoanong on the homestretch and crossed the finish line in second place for the silver medal behind Team USAs winning 2:57.30 for gold.Bahamas, the reigning Olympic Gold Medalists from London four years ago, returned to the medal podium with a run of 2:58.49 to edge Belgiums 2:58.52 for the bronze, while Botswana slipped to fifth place in 2:59.06. Cuba trailed in sixth place with a time of 2:59.53, followed by Poland in seventh place at 3:00.50 and Brazil in eighth place at 3:03.28.Dunkleys silver-medal-winning performance in his first Olympic Games caps an outstanding senior season on the track as he also ran on LSUs 4x400-meter relay team that swept NCAA Indoor and NCAA Outdoor titles during the 2016 season. He was also the NCAA Outdoor Silver Medalist in the 400-meter dash as one of the nations elite quartermilers throughout the campaign.LSUs athletes have now won 17 medals all-time at the Olympic Games as Dunkley is the 13th different athlete to ascend the medal podium at the modern Olympics dating back to Glenn Slats Hardin in 1932.Hardin was a two-time Olympic medalist as the worlds leading 400-meter hurdler in the early 20th century as he secured a silver medal in Los Angeles in 1932 and gold medal in Berlin in 1936.

LSU also featured Olympic Gold Medalists in Barcelona in 1992 and Atlanta in 1996 as American Esther Jones and Canadian Glenroy Gilbert, respectively, both won 4x100-meter relay titles.The Athens Olympics in 2004 proved to be the programs most successful with five athletes winning six total medals. Derrick Brew and Kelly Willie both won gold medals as members of Team USAs winning 4x400 relay, while Brew also won bronze in the mens 400 meters. John Moffitt struck silver for the United States in the long jump, while Nadia Davy and Ronetta Smith won bronze for Jamaica in the womens 4x400 relay.Richard Thompson of Trinidad & Tobago has won more Olympic medals than any LSU Track & Field athlete in history as a three-time silver medalist, including runner-up finishes for the 100-meter dash and 4x100-meter relay in his debut in Beijing in 2008 followed by a defense of his countrys silver medal in the sprint relay in London in 2012.Samantha Henry-Robinson also won a silver medal for Jamaica in the womens 4x100-meter relay and Ade Alleyne-Forte won a bronze medal for Trinidad & Tobago in the mens 4x400-meter relay in London four years ago.

BALTIMORE -- It didnt matter to the Colorado Rockies that Chris Tillman was unbeatable at Camden Yards, where the Baltimore Orioles rarely lose regardless of whos on the mound.On Tuesday night, the Rockies emphatically spoiled Tillmans bid to become the first 15-game winner in the majors.Carlos Gonzalez and Trevor Story had two RBIs apiece in a four-run third inning, and the Rockies ended Baltimores five-game winning streak with a 6-3 victory Tuesday night.Tillman (14-3) gave up six runs and nine hits in five innings. The right-hander retired six of the first seven batters but needed 89 pitches to get 15 outs.We were patient, Gonzalez said. We had some really good at-bats against him. We know what kind of pitcher he is. He is having a tremendous year, especially here at his park.Tillman was 8-0 at home this season, and Baltimore was unbeaten in his 12 starts at Camden Yards. He permitted a combined four runs over 28 innings in his previous four starts, but in this outing Tillman tied a season high for runs allowed.So what made this start so much different?I think the ball just fell where we werent, he said.After Colorado loaded the bases with one out in the third, Tillman retired Nolan Arenado on a foul popup and was within a strike of getting out of the jam when Gonzalez lined a double into the left-field corner. Story followed with a two-run single for a 4-0 lead.We had the two big at-bats with Cargo and Story. Both with two outs and two strikes, manager Walt Weiss said. Those two at-bats were crucial in the game.Arenado picked up his 78th RBI with a double in the fifth and came home on a wild pitch.Adam Jones hit his 18th homer for Baltimore in the bottom half.The Orioles still own baseballs best home record at 37-15, including 21-4 since the beginning of June.Chad Bettis (9-6) won his third straight start, allowing two runs, four hits and three walks in six innings. Colorado is 8-1 in his last nine outings.They have a lot of guys who can slug it, the right-hander said. You just have to try to work in and out effectively. If you leave tthe ball up, stuff like the Jones home run happens. Bob Gibson. Rookie Carlos Estevez got three outs for his ninth save.The surging Rockies have won five of six and are 8-4 since the All-Star break.Ive been telling the club all year I felt we were going to get better and better as the year goes on, Weiss said.
