SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Former Olympic sprint stars and civil activists Tommie Smith and John Carlos earned fame and scorn when they raised their gloved fists on the medal podium at the 1968 Mexico City Games and bowed their heads through the national anthem in protest during the heart of racial tension in the U.S.They were booted out of the Olympic village, condemned and sent home, then eventually celebrated back in the Bay Area years later.As the Rio de Janeiro Olympics prepare to kick off this week, these two men returned to where they shined on campus at San Jose State and now have a 23-foot statue of that history-making moment, helping the university with the announcement Monday that it is reinstating the storied mens track and field program in 2018 after nearly three decades without one.The Olympic project for human rights was started, and it was completed, Smith said Monday. Well stand behind ideas like that `til the day we die. This statue on my right represents you all. John Carlos and Tommie Smith might be the ones who put a foot on those steps, who were standing, but let me tell you, when we walked off, we carried you with us. I humbly thank all of you for the support back then. ... One great man said, `There is redemptive actions in proactive sacrifices, and I thank God that he made it possible and we took those steps to bring it forward.The renowned and respected Speed City track team Smith and Carlos carried to success and Olympic glory is back at last -- with the two sprinters now in their 70s.Smith won a gold medal and Carlos the bronze in the 200 meters in Mexico, committed to their Olympic Project for Human Rights. They wore black socks and no shoes to represent black poverty, raising their fists to symbolize black power.Carlos said he is appreciative of getting another opportunity to come back to San Jose State and see so many people that remember and welcome us back with love, because thats what we exuded all the time we were here, was love for you guys as well.The city of San Jose is embracing the universitys decision, also remembering what Smith and Carlos stood for during their memorable Olympics in Mexico City.That race was at the forefront of national consciousness, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo said. It raised our national struggle for racial justice to global consciousness. And of course today, again, race has surged in a national discussion.With many of their former teammates on hand, Smith and Carlos cherished the idea that their legacy would carry on through new young men in track and field in a place that meant so much to their athletic careers. Mens track and field was dropped in 1988.Were also bringing back track and field to honor their courageous stand for human rights, athletic director Gene Bleymaier said. For several years now weve had a dream, a dream that turned into a golden opportunity.The mens program will be reinstated on Oct. 16, 2018, 50 years to the day after Smith and Carlos made their silent protest. The university has a womens program but the team practices 12 miles away at a junior college, so part of Mondays announcement was about the start of a $5 million fundraising campaign to build a new track and field facility on campus.The mens team will begin competition in the spring of 2019, marking the 50th anniversary of the schools outdoor track NCAA championship in 1969.

WASHINGTON -- Max Scherzer can live with giving up home runs as long as runners arent on base. Against a dominant Junior Guerra, even one solo blast was too many.Guerra outdueled Scherzer, Martin Maldonado homered, and the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Washington Nationals 1-0 on Monday.Guerra (6-1) allowed two hits in 7 1/3 innings, striking out seven and walking two. The 31-year-old rookie threw eight scoreless innings of two-hit ball in his previous start and has won three straight.Maldonado gave the Brewers the lead in the fifth when he sent a 2-1 pitch from Scherzer (9-6) over the visitors bullpen for his third homer of the season.Most of the times solo bombs, they dont beat you, said Scherzer, who has allowed an NL-high 21 homers. It happened today.One day after hitting six homers in a 12-1 win against the Reds, Washington batters were stifled by Guerra. In one stretch, he retired 12 straight before Jayson Werth singled with two outs in the sixth. Then, with runners on second and third after a walk and a wild pitch, Guerra struck out Wilson Ramos.We only had a couple of opportunities to score, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said. Ive always said the advantage goes to the pitcher when you havent seen him before. ...

He gave up a run and four hits, while striking out seven and walking three. The right-hander hasnt pitched more than siix innings in three of his last four starts.ddddddddddddI just havent been quite as efficient over the past couple of outings, Scherzer said. Im kind of scratching my head over that.Fans were still settling in for the traditional 11:05 a.m. July 4 game when the Brewers lost a hit for batting out of order in the first. After No. 3 hitter Ryan Brauns two-out single, Baker visited home plate umpire Cory Blaser.Ultimately, Jonathan Lucroy, who was listed third on the lineup card given to the umpires before the game, was charged with an at-bat and an out. Braun, who does usually bat third, hit fourth and led off the second inning.I screwed up, Brewers manager Craig Counsell admitted. I was going with some different lineups yesterday with Ryan in and out of the lineup. And it was just my mistake. ... The guys certainly picked me up.NSYNCRHP Jonathan Papelbon (right rib muscle strain) returned from the 15-day DL and pitched a scoreless ninth. (Papelbon) gets our bullpen back in sync, Baker said.TRAINERS ROOMBaker kept a `banged-up 2B Daniel Murphy out of the lineup, but Murphy flied out as pinch hitter in the eighth ...
