Today's Thought

The reason I am alive today in NOT because in my darkest days I held on to God. It's because in my darkest days God held on to me. It is HIS faithfulness that is great, not ours.

    MINNESOTA TWINS

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Nelson Cruz homered and had three RBIs and utility infielder Ehire Adrianza's hustle keyed a six-run sixth and the Minnesota Twins topped the Seattle Mariners 10-5 Thursday.
 
     Cruz, who played for the Mariners from 2015-18 before joining Minnesota as a free agent, homered in the third and added a two-run single in the sixth when Adrianza helped key the rally.
 
     Max Kepler led off with a walk. Adrianza then singled Kepler to third. Mariners right-hander Brandon Brennan, on in relief, threw wildly past first trying to pick off Adrianza.
 
     Kepler scored and Adrianza took second on the throwing error. Adrianza advanced on Brennan's wild pitch and scored on a ground ball by Jason Castro with the infield in, sliding headfirst to beat second baseman Dee Gordon's throw. Cruz and Kepler each drove in two runs with singles later in the inning.
 
     Four of the six runs in the inning were charged to Brennan (2-6), who faced seven batters in the three-game series without retiring any of them. Seattle lost for the 24th time in 33 games and is 16-41 since its 13-2 start.
 
     Cruz gave the Twins a 1-0 lead with his fifth home run in seven games, a line drive into the lower seats in left. That was the only run allowed in five innings by Mariners starter Yusei Kikuchi, a Japanese left-hander who lost his previous three starts.
 
     Twins starter Michael Pineda, facing the team that signed him out of the Dominican Republic in 2005, limited Seattle to two hits in 5 2/3 innings and left the game with two on and a 1-0 lead.
 
     Seattle's Daniel Vogelbach, coming off a career-high four-hit game on Wednesday, singled against Twins reliever Ryan Harper to tie it, the run charged to Pineda.
 
     Harper (2-0), a 30-year-old rookie who pitched into the seventh, was the beneficiary of the Twins' rally.
 
     C.J. Cron hit his 15th homer for the Twins, who lead the majors with 132. Jorge Polanco's single in the sixth-inning rally gave him a career-high 14-game hitting streak, the longest active streak in the majors.
 
     Seattle's Mallex Smith extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a single in the eighth, when the Mariners scored twice. The Mariners added two more runs in the ninth.
 
     ROSTER MOVE
 
     Before the game, the Twins recalled right-handed reliever Francisco Romero from Triple-A Rochester and optioned Ryan Eades to the same club. Eades threw 35 pitches over 1 2/3 innings in Wednesday night's 10-inning loss.
 
     TRAINER'S ROOM
 
     Twins: Reliever Taylor Rogers (stiff back) did not pitch for the third consecutive game but warmed up in the ninth.
 
     UP NEXT
 
     Twins: Kyle Gibson (6-3, 4.14 ERA) starts the opener of a three-game series with Kansas City. In his previous start, he gave up five runs in a loss at Detroit.

     NBA FINALS

     OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - This is turning out to be quite a year for first-time champions.

     The Toronto Raptors are celebrating the first NBA championship in their 24-season history after taking Game 6 of the finals, 114-110. It comes one day after the St. Louis Blues captured their first Stanley Cup and two months after Virginia claimed its first NCAA men's basketball title.

     But Golden State didn't go down without a fight. The Raptors led 108-102 with just over two minutes remaining and were ahead just 111-110 when Danny Green threw the ball away with 9.6 seconds left. But Stephen Curry missed a 3-point attempt before the Warriors received a technical for taking an excessive timeout. Series MVP Kawhi Leonard nailed the technical with 0.9 seconds to play and added two free throws to ice the victory.

     Pascal Siakam and Kyle Lowry scored 26 points apiece to lead Toronto. Fred VanVleet was 5 of 11 from 3-point range to finish with 22 points. Leonard's late free throws also gave him 22 points.

     Klay Thompson was high man for Golden State with 30 points before leaving the game for good in the third quarter with a knee injury. Andre Iguodala scored 22 points and Stephen Curry had 21 for the Warriors, who were trying to become the first team since the 2002 Lakers to win a third straight NBA title.

     PGA-US OPEN

     PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) - The winds were low and the scorers were lower during the first round of the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

     Justin Rose closed with three straight birdies to take the lead at 6 under in the third major of the year. Rose was two off the pace until his birdie run moved him one shot ahead of Rickie Fowler, Xander Schauffele, Aaron Wise and Louis Oosthuizen. Rose also eagled the par-5 sixth hole to make up for his lone bogey.

     For a course notorious for its strong winds, Pebble Beach was as gentle as could be on Thursday. Fowler carded six birdies and Schauffele made a 12-foot putt for eagle on the 18th hole to catch Fowler. Oosthuizen dropped one in from the bunker on his final hole a few minutes later to join them at 5-under 66 before Rose surged in front.

     Two-time defending champion Brooks Koepka is tied for 16th following a 2-under 69. Tiger Woods is at minus-1, Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson opened with 72s and Rory McIlroy is tied for eighth at 3 under after winning the Canadian Open last weekend.

    NFL-BOWLEN OBIT

     ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Pat Bowlen, the Denver Broncos owner who transformed the team from also-rans into NFL champions and helped the league usher in billion-dollar TV deals, has died. He was 75.
 
     In a statement on the team's website, Bowlen's family says he died late Thursday night at home surrounded by loved ones. The statement did not specify a cause of death. Bowlen had battled Alzheimer's for several years.

He had as many Super Bowl appearances (seven) as losing seasons, and the Broncos had a 354-240-1 record since he bought the team in 1984.
 
     Under his stewardship, the Broncos won Super Bowls in 1998, '99 and 2016.
