The Expedition League's inaugural All-Star Game and Home Run Derby will be held at beautiful and historic Duncan Field in Hastings, Nebraska tonight...

    MINOT, ND - The Expedition League's inaugural All-Star Game and Home Run Derby will be held at beautiful and historic Duncan Field in Hastings, Nebraska tonight.  The Home Run Derby will start at 6:05 PM followed by the All-Star Game at 7:05 PM.

    Nine players from the league-leading Souris Valley Sabre Dogs have been named All-Star's, with eight taking part in the game. Pitchers who have been selected are Jarret Whorff, Aaron Kern, Zach Lang, and Ryan Miller. Outfielders EJ Ranel and Chauncey Callier, along with infielder Brock Baughcum and catcher Alex Hay, will also be playing for the Lewis Division All-Stars. Due to pitch count limitations, All-Star pitcher Ryan Miller will not be participating in the actual game. Bragg Eastin will represent Souris Valley in the metal-bat homerun derby.

    The Sabre Dogs have the best record in the Expedition League at 24-9 and have won 14 of their last 15 games.

     MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have reinstated shortstop Jorge Polanco, following his 80-game suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug.
 
     The Twins also recalled right-hander Zack Littell from Triple-A Rochester among several moves before their game today at Milwaukee. Left-hander Adalberto Mejia was sent to Rochester after making one start. Utility infielder Ehire Adrianza went to the disabled list with a hamstring injury.
 
     To make room for Polanco on the 40-man roster, outfielder Ryan LaMarre was designated for release or assignment. Polanco had a breakout 2017 season, batting .316 with 10 homers and 42 RBIs over his last 55 games.

     Outfielder Byron Buxton was returned from his rehab assignment and sent to Rochester. Buxton has played in only 28 games for the Twins this season, due to injuries and hitting struggles.

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Veteran forward Anthony Tolliver is joining the Minnesota Timberwolves, returning to one of the nine NBA teams he's played for during his career.  A person with knowledge of the agreement says Tolliver will sign a one-year contract for $5.75 million with the Timberwolves. The person spoke to The Associated Press today on condition of anonymity because the league's free agency moratorium is in place until Friday.
 
     Tolliver will likely replace Nemanja Bjelica off the bench, a sharp shooter who can back up both forward spots. Tolliver, who played for Minnesota in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons, played for Detroit in 2017-18 while averaging 8.9 points and 22.2 minutes per game with a career-best 3-point percentage of 43.6.

     LONDON (AP) - New look, same old dominance for Roger Federer at Wimbledon.  The eight-time champion began his title defense in style at the All England Club, brushing aside Dusan Lajovic 6-1, 6-3, 6-4 in 79 minutes on Centre Court.  Lajovic held serve in the opening game but that was as good as it got for the 58th-ranked Serb. Federer reeled off the next nine games to take charge and was in cruise control after that.  The only things unfamiliar about Federer were his clothes. He wore a Uniqlo outfit for the first time after ending his career-long apparel partnership with Nike.
 
     In other first-round action:
 
     - Serena Williams needed six match points to finish off a 7-5, 6-3 win over Arantxa Rus of the Netherlands and reach the second round. The seven-time champion missed last year's tournament while pregnant.
 
     - Five-time champion Venus Williams advanced to the second round with a victory over Johanna Larsson.
 
     - Last year's semifinalist Magdalena Rybarikova became the first seeded player to exit Wimbledon. The 19th-seeded Slovakian went down 7-5, 6-3 to Sorana Cirstea of Romania.
 
     - Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki cruised into the second round with a 6-0, 6-3 win over American Varvara Lepchenko.
 
     - U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens is out of Wimbledon after a 6-1, 6-3 defeat to Donna Vekic. The fourth-seeded Stephens produced an error-filled display on No. 1 Court as she exited in the opening round for a second consecutive year.
 
     - Sixteenth-seeded American CoCo Vandeweghe took a fall in the opening set of her first-round match at Wimbledon, and soon she was out of the tournament, losing to 42nd-ranked Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic.
 
     - Last year's runner-up Marin Cilic easily advanced to the second round over Japanese player Yoshihito Nishioka.
 
     - Stan Wawrinka defeated sixth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov to claim just his second match at a Grand Slam since last year's Wimbledon.
 
     - Borna Coric became the highest seeded male to exit Wimbledon on Day 1 when he lost to Daniil Medvedev. The exit of the 16th seed has simplified Roger Federer's expected path to the later stages.

     MOSCOW (AP) - Belgium has rallied from 2-0 down to beat Japan 3-2 with a goal in the dying seconds and advance to a World Cup quarterfinal match against Brazil. It's the first time since 1970 that a team has rallied to win a knockout game from 2-0 down at a World Cup. Japan has now lost in the round of 16 three times and has never reached the World Cup quarterfinals.
 
     Brazil advanced with a 2-0 win over Mexico. Neymar opened the scoring in the 51st minute and provided the last pass for Firmino's clincher in the 88th. The goals made Brazil the World Cup all-time scoring leader.
