Sports Minute: Here is the latest Illinois sports news from The Associated Press

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Mitchell Trubisky started fast, slowed down and picked it up down the stretch. Despite another inconsistent performance by their prized quarterback, the Bears pulled out their first win. Khalil Mack had one of six sacks against Russell Wilson, Prince Amukamara returned an interception 49 yards for a touchdown and Chicago beat the Seattle Seahawks 24-17 Monday night to give coach Matt Nagy his first career victory.

PHOENIX (AP) - Kyle Hendricks took a one-hit shutout into the ninth inning and the Chicago Cubs held the Arizona Diamondbacks to three hits in a 5-1 win to open their important three-game series. Hendricks struck out eight and walked one. A.J. Pollock hit a leadoff homer against Hendricks in the ninth and Paul Goldschmidt added a two-out single before Justin Wilson relieved and closed things out. Javier Baez homered in Chicago's three-run sixth.

CHICAGO (AP) - Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson was surrounded for most of the Seahawks' 24-17 loss to the Chicago Bears, and he got very little help from his teammates until the fourth quarter. He was sacked six times for the second straight week, including five in the first half, and made a game-sealing mistake in the final period.

CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Bears have presented longtime linebacker Brian Urlacher with his Ring of Excellence for being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Urlacher was recognized at halftime of the Bears' 24-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Lance Briggs and Matt Forte were among a group of Urlacher's former teammates on hand for the ceremony.

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Cardinals have been outscored 58-6 in Steve Wilks' first two games as their head coach. Wilks says he will be scaling back and simplifying the offense going forward, as well as figuring out ways to get running back David Johnson in open space. Arizona is home against Chicago on Sunday.

CHICAGO (AP) - The Cubs' NL Central lead remained at 2½ games over second-place Milwaukee when Scott Schebler homered on Jose Quintana's first pitch of the game, Phillip Ervin also went deep and the Cincinnati Reds beat Chicago 2-1. Joey Votto had three hits for last-place Cincinnati, which stopped its three-game losing streak and Chicago's three-game winning streak. Luis Castillo and the Brewers' bullpen combined on a five-hitter. Chicago has totaled 15 runs in its last seven games.
