The Minot State baseball team was eliminated last night from 2018 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Tournament in Sioux Falls, SD.....

    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (MSU) - The Minot State baseball team was eliminated last night from 2018 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Tournament in Sioux Falls, SD.

    In the Beavers first game of the day, Minot State rode the pitching of Reilly O'Rourke and a three-run seventh inning to eliminate the Northern State Wolves 4-1. The Wolves had defeated the Beavers in the opening round. O'Rourke worked 5.0 scoreless innings before turning the game over to the bullpen. O'Rourke allowed five hits and struck out four batters in keeping Northern State off the scoreboard.

    In the second game of the day, Concordia-St. Paul used a four-run fifth inning to eliminate the Beavers 4-2.
 
    Minot State improves to 34-16 overall. The Beavers will await word of a possible NCAA Tournament bid on Sunday night when the field is announced beginning at 9 p.m.

    BLAINE, MN (NAHL) - Minnesota native Jax Murray scored two goals and added an assist as the Fairbanks Ice Dogs jumped out to an early lead and withstood a comeback from the Minot Minotauros to capture Game 1 of their Robertson Cup Semi-Final 5-2.

    It did not take the Ice Dogs long to get on the scoreboard as Murray parked himself in front of the net and caught a pass and slipped a backhander past Minot goalie Samu Lonkila for a 1-0 lead. Just :36 seconds later, it was Fairbanks forward Caleb Hite who found himself streaking down the left wing and he fired a snap shot over the glove of Lonkila for a 2-0 lead. Before the period was out, Sam Ruffin converted on a 2 on 1 to make it 3-0 in a dominant 1st period for the Ice Dogs.

    The Minotauros got the only goal of the 2nd period as Colby Enns was the recipient of a nice back door pass to beat Fairbanks goalie Josh Benson to make it a 3-1 contest.

    The Minotauros closed the gap even further early in the 3rd period as a nice individual effort by Grant Loven cut the Ice Dogs lead to 3-2. However, Murray stepped up less than a minute later as he streaked down the right wing and beat Lonkila with a pin point shot to make it 4-2. Nolan Schaeffer added an empty-net goal to make the final, 5-2.

    Benson had to make 21 saves in the win, while Lonkila made 17 saves in the loss. Game 2 in the best of three series is today at 4:30 pm.

     ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Eddie Rosario homered twice, Bobby Wilson hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, and the Minnesota Twins rallied for a 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night.
 
     Rosario's solo shot to right pulled Minnesota to 4-2 in the sixth and his drive in the ninth cut the deficit to 4-3. Logan Morrison then doubled to left, and pinch-hitter Mitch Garver drove him in on a single down the first base line to tie it at 4. Wilson's sac fly scored pinch-runner Max Kepler to cap the three-run ninth.
 
     Fernando Rodney got Mike Trout to ground out to short with a runner on first for his sixth save.
 
     Matt Magill (1-0) picked up the win for his scoreless eighth inning in relief. Justin Anderson (0-1) gave up three runs in 1 1/3 innings.
 
     Brian Dozier homered for the second consecutive game to give the Twins a 1-0 lead in the first. It was his seventh home run of the season.
 
     The Angels capitalized on a second chance in the third inning to take the lead. Justin Upton hit a two-run homer to left and put the Angels ahead 3-1 two pitches after Joe Mauer misplayed a pop-up in foul territory down the first base line that would have been the third out. The ball landed past the outstretched arms of a diving Mauer, allowing Upton to hit his fifth home run in six games.
 
     But the Angels only got one run across with the bases loaded in the fifth, with Andrelton Simmons drawing a full-count walk to make it 4-1, and the Twins punished the home team for their wastefulness.

     TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Alex Ovechkin had a power-play goal and an assist in his Eastern Conference finals debut, leading the Washington Capitals to a 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday night.

     Steven Stamkos and Ondrej Palat scored for Tampa Bay, which trailed 4-0 heading into the third period.
 
     Game 2 is Sunday night at Amalie Arena, where Tampa Bay also lost Game 1 in the second round against Boston.

     Marcus Semien drove in four runs for the A's, three on a double in the ninth inning.
 
     Davis led off the second inning with his 10th home run, driving a fastball into the right-field bleachers. After Matt Olson singled, Chapman hit an 0-2 pitch 429 feet into the loading dock in center for a 3-0 lead.
 
     Gray (2-3) was acquired from Oakland just before last year's trade deadline for outfielder Dustin Fowler and two minor leaguers. Drafted 18th overall in 2011, Gray was 44-36 with a 3.42 ERA over parts of five seasons with the A's.

     UNDATED (AP)- Rookie quarterback Josh Allen says the only time he became rattled during his first Buffalo Bills practice was when he was introduced to Hall of Famer Jim Kelly. The first-round draft pick says Friday he was "shaking" while standing beside Kelly in a meeting of Bills quarterbacks past and present.
 
     Allen says he hopes to one day have his name included in the same sentence with Kelly, who guided the Bills to four consecutive AFC championships in the early 1990s. The Bills traded up five spots to select the Wyoming quarterback with the No. 7 pick two weeks ago. Kelly made a surprise visit for the start of two-day rookie minicamp some six weeks after his latest operation to have cancer removed from his jaw.
