    MINOT, ND - The Souris Valley Sabre Dogs winning streak came to an end at 13 last night in Aberdeen with a 7-6 loss to the Hub City Hot Shots.

The teams finish the series in Aberdeen tonight before heading into the All-Star break.

      CHICAGO (AP) - Addison Russell hit his second career grand slam, Jason Heyward and Ben Zobrist each had two-run homers and the Chicago Cubs rallied to beat the Minnesota Twins 10-6 on Friday.
 
     Kyle Schwarber added his 16th home run, a solo shot in seventh, and Anthony Rizzo completed Chicago's scoring with an RBI single in the eighth as the Cubs pulled away to win their third game in four following a five-game losing streak.
 
     Russell's second homer in two days chased Twins starter Jose Berrios (8-6) with one out the fifth and put Chicago ahead for the first time, 6-5. The shortstop's deep fly to left was pushed by a steady southwest wind as it narrowly reached the Wrigley Field bleachers.
 
     Joe Mauer homered among three hits and finished with a season-high five RBIs. Coming through twice with two outs, Mauer hit a three-run shot in the second and lined a two-run double off Cubs starter Mike Montgomery in the fourth.
 
     Montgomery (3-2) lasted five innings and earned the win despite giving up five runs (three earned) and seven hits with three walks. Three Cubs relievers followed with a scoreless inning each before Justin Wilson allowed the Twins' final run in the ninth.
 
     Brandon Morrow came in to get the final out for his 17th save.
 
     Berrios lacked his usual velocity as he yielded a season-high six runs and four walks. The right-hander was 3-0 with a 2.10 ERA over his previlous five starts.
 
     Mauer's homer was just his second this season, following a solo shot on May 1. The 35-year-old first baseman last drove in five runs in a game last Sept. 17 against Toronto.
 
     After Max Kepler and Mitch Garver led off the second with singles, Mauer's drive with two outs made it 3-0. His fly carried into the left-field basket with help from the wind.
 
     With Albert Almora, Jr. on first, Heyward lined Berrios' first pitch to him in the third into the right-center bleachers to cut it to 3-2.
 
     Mauer's double to center field got past Almora in the fourth and plated two runs to extend the Twins' lead to 5-2.
 
     After the Cubs loaded the bases in the fifth, Russell's fifth homer put them ahead.  Zobrist added his two-run shot to right in the sixth off Matt Magill to make it 8-5.
 
     UP NEXT
 
     Twins LHP Adalberto Mejia makes his first major league appearance of the season and faces Cubs RHP Tyler Chatwood (3-5, 3.95), who comes off the paternity list. Mejia is 4-2 with 2.74 ERA in 11 games (nine starts) for Triple-A Rochester, and was 4-7 with 4.50 ERA in 21 starts for the Twins in 2017. Chatwood leads the majors with 63 walks.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Maya Moore scored 24 points and the Minnesota Lynx won their sixth straight, 85-74 over the Atlanta Dream on Friday night. Sylvia Fowles added 13 points and 15 rebounds for her league-leading 12th double-double of the season, and Seimone Augustus scored 10 points.
 
     Moore has reached at least 20 points in every game during the Lynx's winning streak. She capped a 10-2 run with back-to-back 3-pointers that gave Minnesota a 74-53 lead to start the fourth quarter. The Dream got the deficit no closer than the final score.
 
     The Lynx (9-6) led 39-36 at the half and pulled away in the beginning of the third quarter with an 11-0 run sparked by 3-pointers from Lindsay Whalen and Moore.
 
     Neither team led by more than four points in the first half.
 
     Imani McGee-Stafford had 15 points for the Dream (7-8). Damiris Dantas and Brittney Sykes added 14 apiece.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - The New York Yankees are back in a virtual first-place tie in the American League East, eight percentage points ahead of the Boston Red Sox.
 
     CC Sabathia outpitched Eduardo Rodriguez and Greg Bird hit two of the Yankees' four home runs in an 8-1 rout of the Red Sox. Miguel Andujar and Aaron Judge belted two-run shots and Andujar went 3-for-4 with three RBIs.
 
     Sabathia was reached for just one run and six hits over seven innings, blanking Boston until Andrew Benintendi's RBI double in the fifth.
 
     Rodriguez surrendered five runs over six innings as the Bosox ended a four-game winning streak.
 
     Checking out Friday's other major league action:
 
     - The Rays touched Gerrit Cole for three runs on two big errors in the fourth inning of a 3-2 victory over the Astros. Shortstop Marwin Gonzalez committed a throwing error that allowed two runs to score. Alex Bregman smacked a two-run homer in the sixth for Houston, which lost for only the fourth time in 22 games.
 
     - The Mariners' fifth straight win moves them 2 1/2 games behind the AL West-leading Astros. Marco Gonzales fired a six-hitter and Seattle homered twice in a 4-1 win over the Royals. Mitch Haniger slammed a two-run homer and Mike Zunino added a solo blast before Gonzales put the wraps on his first career complete game.
 
     - Paul Blackburn pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning of the Athletics' fifth straight win, 3-1 over the Indians. Marcus Semien and Khris Davis drove in runs against Trevor Bauer as the A's followed up a four-game sweep at Detroit with a win in the opener of a five-game homestand. Oakland is a seven-high seven games over .500 after preventing Cleveland from adding to its eight-game lead in the AL Central.
 
     - The Cubs trailed 5-2 until Addison Russell launched a grand slam in the fifth inning of a 10-6 win against Minnesota. Jason Heyward and Ben Zobrist belted two-run shots before Kyle Schwarber provided a solo blast in Chicago's third win in four games since a five-game losing streak. The Twins wasted Joe Mauer's three-run homer and five RBIs.
 
     - The Brewers still lead the NL Central by 2 1/2 games over the Cubs after Keon Broxton went 3-for-4 with a pair of homers and four RBIs in Milwaukee's seventh straight win, an 8-2 thumping of the Reds. Chase Anderson allowed just two hits over six innings and blanked Cincinnati until Michael Lorenzen homered in the sixth. The Reds have dropped two straight since a 9-1 run.
 
     - Julio Teheran worked six scoreless innings and Johan Camargo doubled home a pair in the Braves' 5-1 win at St. Louis. Neither team scored until Austin Gomber hit Ender Inciarte with the bases loaded in the seventh.  Atlanta's lead in the NL East is three games over the Phillies and four games over Washington.
 
     - The Nationals pounded out seven home runs in a 17-7 dismantling of the Phillies. Juan Soto homered twice, Bryce Harper smacked a three-run shot and Erick Fedde picked up his first big league win despite yielding five runs over five innings. Trea Turner, Anthony Rendon, Brian Goodwin and Mark Reynolds went deep as the Nats won for just the fourth time in 14 games.
 
     - Austin Slater's second RBI double of the night broke a 1-1 tie in the seventh and sent San Francisco past the Diamondbacks, 2-1. Slater's hitting made a winner out of Andrew Suarez, who gave up seven hits but only one run over six innings. The Giants rallied after Patrick Corbin held them to a run and four hits over six frames.
 
     - Tyler Anderson tossed eight shutout innings and the Rockies smacked three solo homers in a 3-1 win at Los Angeles. Anderson scattered four hits and struck out eight to help Colorado keep the Dodgers 3 1/2 games behind the NL West-leading Diamondbacks. Pat Valaika, Nolan Arenado and Chris Iannetta furnished the longballs for the Rockies.
 
     - Justin Smoak belted a two-run homer and Randal Grichuk added an RBI single while the Blue Jays scored three times in the fourth inning to beat the Tigers, 3-2. Marcus Stroman picked up his first win of the year by holding Detroit to two runs and five hits over seven innings. Jeimer Canderlario hit a solo shot in the Tigers' 10th consecutive loss.
 
     - The Pirates were 6-3 winners at San Diego behind Joe Musgrave, who managed to pitch seven scoreless innings despite allowing seven hits and a pair of walks. Gregory Polanco's two-run double capped a four-run third that sent Pittsburgh to its third win in four games. Jordy Mercer's solo shot put the Bucs ahead 6-0 in the fourth.
 
     - The Angels rolled to a 7-1 win at Baltimore as Felix Pena scattered five hits over 5 1/3 innings. Mike Trout banged out his 24th home run, Martin Madonado added a solo shot and Andrelton Simons was 4-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored. The Orioles were blanked until Adam Jones singled home a run in the ninth.
 
     - The Rangers built a quick 10-0 by slamming five home runs over the first three innings of an 11-3 laugher over the White Sox. Rougned Odor, Robinson Chirinos and Nomar Mazara went deep in the Rangers' seven-run second before Joey Gallo and Shin-Soo Choo provided third-inning blasts. Winning pitcher Yovani Gallardo allowed three runs over 7 1/3 innings.
 
     - J.T. Riddle's three-run blast capped a six-run third as the Marlins crushed the Mets, 8-2. Lewis Brinson was 3-for-4 with a solo shot to help Miami end a three-game skid. The Mets have dropped nine of their last 10 and are a major league-worst 21-46 since an 11-1 start.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka has thrown 48 pitches over three innings in his first simulated game since being sidelined three weeks by a strained right and left hamstring. Tanaka faced minor leaguers today at the Yankees' spring training complex in Tampa, Florida. Tanaka was 7-2 with a 4.58 ERA in 13 starts before getting hurt June 8 while running the bases in a game against the New York Mets. His next step may be a minor league rehab game next week.
 
     Meanwhile, Cubs pitcher Yu Darvish has gone to Texas to get another opinion on the sore triceps muscle that flared up again in a bullpen session yesterday. The setback ended plans for the right-hander's return to the Cubs' rotation this weekend. Cubs manager Joe Maddon said today that there's no timetable for Darvish's return.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - LeBron James is going to test the free-agent market, which could mean a possible second departure from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
 
     Two people familiar with the decision say James has told the Cavs that he is not exercising his $35.6 million contract option for next season. The decision was expected by James because it gives him more options, which includes him re-signing with the Cavaliers. They can offer him a five-year, $209 million contract. James can also sign a short-term deal with Cleveland, something he has done each year since returning in 2014.
 
     The three-time champion is now the most coveted prize in an NBA free-agent class that includes All-Stars Paul George and Chris Paul. Teams can begin negotiations with free agents at 12:01 a.m. Sunday.
 
     In other NBA news:
 
     - Enes Kanter is sticking with the Knicks, telling the team he is opting into his contract for next season, rather than becoming a free agent. The center from Turkey will make $18.6 million in 2018-19. Kanter averaged 14.1 points and 11 rebounds in 71 games, all starts, and shot a career-best 59 percent from the field.
 
     - The Pistons have added assistant coaches Sidney Lowe and Sean Sweeney to Dwane Casey's staff. Detroit also hired Malik Rose as an assistant general manager and player development coach DJ Bakker.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - The Washington Capitals named a new head coach and kept one of their defensemen in the fold on Friday.
 
     The Capitals have promoted assistant Todd Reirden to head coach, replacing Barry Trotz. Reirden had been Trotz's top assistant and played a substantial role in the first championship in franchise history this month. Reirden coached the defensemen the past four seasons and was a finalist for another NHL head job two years ago before being elevated to associate coach.
 
     The Caps also re-signed blueliner Michal Kempny to a four-year, $10 million deal. He was helpful during the Capitals' postseason run to their first title, getting two goals and three assists while averaging more than 17 1/2 minutes per game as a top-four defenseman.
 
     Kempny could have become a free agent on Sunday.
 
     In other NHL news:
 
     - Defenseman Drew Doughty has agreed to an eight-year, $88 contract that keeps him with the Kings. Doughty won the Norris Trophy two years ago and has been among the NHL's top defensemen throughout a 10-year career spent entirely with the Kings. He played a major role in the Kings' Stanley Cup triumphs in 2012 and 2014.
 
     - The Devils have hired former Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher as a senior adviser for management and hockey operations. Devils executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero says Fletcher will help him and assist in hockey operations, including scouting. Fletcher previously worked under Shero for three years as assistant general manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins from 2006-2009.

     INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indianapolis Colts running back Robert Turbin has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancers. Turbin tweeted that a urine sample he provided to the league resulted in a positive test. The 28-year-old Turbin played six games and ran for 53 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries last season before getting placed on injured reserve.

     MOSCOW (AP) - International soccer officials plan to review a rule that resulted in Senegal being eliminated from the World Cup because it had more yellow cards than Japan, but they are unlikely to remove the measure.
 
     The rule is in use for the first time at the World Cup. It caused a stir when the last games in Group H were being played simultaneously and it became obvious it would be needed as a tiebreaker between two teams finishing equal in every other way.
