TODAY'S THOUGHT

If we who follow Jesus are anything at all, we are people of good news. What spectacular irony and victory for the prince of darkness if he could get us in droves to believe there only ever be bad news this side of heaven. Let not our hearts grow numb. Jesus is alive and rules!

    MINOT, ND - Pierre was ahead 6-0 after one inning, but the Souris Valley Sabre Dogs came back to earn a 7-6 walk-off win over the Trappers last night at Corbett Field. Chauncey Callier singled in the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. The Sabre Dogs have won 16 of their last 17.

    Souris Valley will continue the home-and-home series with Pierre as the Trappers host game two tonight and game three tomorrow. It's the beginning of the five game roadtrip for the Sabre Dogs.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Aaron Slegers got his first major league win by finished six smooth innings in his first start of the season for Minnesota, and the Twins stopped their six-game losing streak by hanging on to beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 on Thursday night.
 
     Logan Morrison homered and Jake Cave reached base all four times he batted for the Twins, who turned to Fernando Rodney for the ninth for his 18th save following two consecutive blown chances.
 
     Jonathan Schoop hit two home runs, but the Orioles squandered another quality start by Andrew Cashner and lost for the 10th time in 11 games. They have the worst record in the major leagues at 24-62, just the team the Twins needed to face to start a season-long 11-game homestand after a pivotal 1-8 road trip.
 
     Trailing AL Central-leading Cleveland by 11 1/2 games, Minnesota has become a probable seller before the non-waiver trade deadline on July 31 with several accomplished players on expiring contracts.
 
     Baltimore has essentially been in that boat since April, with slugging shortstop Manny Machado widely considered the best asset on the market this summer. The second-lowest scoring team in MLB managed just three hits against Slegers (1-0), who was recalled from Triple-A Rochester to fill the recently revolving fifth spot in the rotation.
 
     The 6-foot-10 right-hander gave up only one run, the first long ball by Schoop.
 
     Cashner (2-9), one of the offseason acquisitions by the Orioles that suggested their commitment to contending in the daunting AL East, has had more than three runs scored for him in only one of his 17 starts this year. He gave up three runs, two earned, and six hits. Orioles starters have received the least amount of run support in the major leagues this season.
 
     Cashner was charged with an error in the third, when he was covering first base on a chopper hit by Bobby Wilson to Chris Davis and fumbled the relay toss to let Cave score from second. Wilson eventually scored on a single by Eddie Rosario.
 
      UP NEXT
 
     Orioles: RHP Dylan Bundy (6-7, 3.75 ERA) will come off the DL to start tonight. Bundy has been sidelined by a sprained left ankle.
 
     Twins: RHP Lance Lynn (5-7, 5.49 ERA) will take the mound in the second game of the series, coming off his worst turn of the season (seven runs, 1 2/3 innings).

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Rebekkah Brunson grabbed 12 boards while becoming the leading rebounder in WNBA history, helping the Minnesota Lynx beat the Los Angeles Sparks 83-72 on Thursday.
 
     Brunson began the night in third place with 3,306 rebounds. She passed Lisa Leslie (3,307) early on and overtook Tamika Catchings (3,316) when she grabbed Candace Parker's missed 3-pointer with 7:17 left in the fourth quarter.
 
     Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve was ejected on the following play for arguing a call, but Brunson was later recognized with a standing ovation from the crowd and a hug from Lynx owner Glen Taylor when the achievement was announced during the ensuing media timeout.
 
     Brunson also had 15 points in her 82nd career double-double, putting her ahead of Yolanda Griffith for sixth on the WNBA career list.
 
     Sylvia Fowles added 27 points, nine rebounds and a career-high seven assists for the Lynx (11-7), who bounced back from their first loss in eight games.
 
     Candace Parker led the Sparks (12-7) with 22 points.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Milwaukee Brewers won a matchup of division leaders on Thursday to move 1 1/2 games ahead of the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central.
 
     Hernan Perez was 3-for-4 with a two-run homer as the Brewers whipped the Braves, 7-2. Jhoulys Chacin and Dan Jennings combined for a three-hitter and blanked Atlanta after the first inning. Chacin gave up the three hits over seven frames and improved to 7-3.
 
     Braves starter and loser Max Fried lasted just three innings, yielding four runs on four hits and three walks.
 
     Ozzie Albies hit an RBI triple for the Braves, whose third straight loss cuts their lead in the NL East to one game over the Phillies.

     - The Astros blew a 2-0 lead before George Springer and Yuli Gurriel provided RBI singles in the bottom of the ninth to give Houston a 4-3 win over the White Sox.

Justin Verlander struck out 10 over seven innings of the Astros' third straight win.
 
     - Marco Gonzales picked up his ninth win and the Mariners stayed 1 1/2 games behind the AL West-leading Astros by downing the Angels, 4-1. Gonzales struck out seven over six innings before three relievers completed a six-hitter. Chris Hermann's solo shot in the seventh gave Seattle breathing room before Jean Segura added an RBI single later in the inning.
 
     - The Diamondbacks' 6-3 loss to San Diego leaves Arizona in a virtual first-place tie with the Dodgers in the NL West. Austin Hedges homered for the first time since April 10, Wil Myers drove in a pair and Carlos Asuaje reached base four times in the Padres' fourth win in 17 games. Eric Lauer limited the DBacks to one run over five innings.
 
     - Mired in a five-game skid and losers in 17 of their last 22, the Nationals stormed back from a 9-0 deficit to beat the Marlins, 14-12 in Washington. Trea Turner went 3-for-5 with a go-ahead grand slam, a solo homer and a career-high eight RBIs in the biggest comeback in Nationals history. Matt Adams was 4-for-5 with three runs scored, and Juan Soto had three RBIs for the Nats.
 
     - The Cardinals hammered the Giants 11-2 as Jedd Gyorko had three hits, including a home run and five RBIs. Matt Carpenter and Harrison Bader also went deep while Yadier Molina singled three times as part of the Redbirds' season-high, 18-hit attack. Luke Weaver retired his first 16 hitters and left the game after allowing two hits over eight innings.
 
     - Joey Gallo and Ronald Guzman hit two-run homers while the Rangers built a 7-0 lead before holding off the Tigers, 7-5. Yovani Gallardo picked up the win despite allowing four runs and eight hits over 5 1/3 innings. Keone Kela gave up a ninth-inning run and had two on with nobody out before notching his 21st save.
 
     - Aaron Slegers picked up his first big league win by allowing a run and three this over six innings of the Twins' 5-2 decision over the Orioles. Slegers took a shutout into the fifth before Jonathan Schoop hit the first of his two home runs. Logan Morrison belted a solo shot and Jake Cave was 3-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored as Minnesota ended a six-game losing streak.

     LONDON (AP) - Day 4 at Wimbledon was a disaster for the No. 3 singles seeds. Defending women's champion Garbine Muguruza and 2017 men's finalist Marin Cilic were ousted in the second round, further reducing the number of top-10 seeds still alive in either bracket.
 
     Muguruza was stunned 5-7, 6-2, 6-1 by 47th-ranked Alison Van Uytvanck of Belgium. Van Uytvanck had been just 1-4 in the grasscourt tournament before dominating the last two sets.
 
     The surprise means only two of the top eight seeded women are still in the field after only four days of action at the All England Club.
 
     Cilic blew a two-sets-to-none lead in a 3-6, 1-6, 6-4, 7-6 (3), 7-5 loss to Argentina's Guido Pella. Cilic was cruising when the match was suspended by rain in the third set on Wednesday. His departure leaves No. 8 Kevin Anderson as the highest-seeded player left in Roger Federer's side of the draw,
 
     Women's top seed Simona Halep advanced to the third round with a 7-5, 6-0 rout of Saisai Zheng.
 
     Top-ranked Rafael Nadal advanced with a 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 win over Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan.
 
     No. 12 Novak Djokovic overcame an apparent thigh problem to beat Horacio Zeballos 6-1, 6-2, 6-3 and reach the third round.
 
     Other winners on the men's side were fifth seed Juan Martin del Potro, eighth seed Kevin Anderson, No. 9 John Isner and No. 15 Nick Kyrgios. Women's No. 11 Angelique Kerber and No. 12 Jelena Ostapenko also reached Round 3.

     - The Twins have signed first-round draft pick Trevor Larnach to a minor league contract that includes a $2.55 million signing bonus.

     UNDATED (AP) - Nemanja Bjelica is moving from Minnesota to Philadelphia. A person familiar with the negotiations says Bjelica has agreed to a one-year contract with the 76ers worth nearly $4.5 million. Bjelica gives Philadelphia more shooting depth, needed in an offseason where the 76ers lost Ersan Ilyasova and Marco Belinelli. Bjelica shot 42 percent from 3-point range last season, his best clip in his three NBA years.
 
     In other NBA news:
