Minot Minotauros goaltender Samu Lonkila stopped all 30 shots that came his way for his third shutout of the 2018 NAHL Robertson Cup Playoffs.....

    BLAINE, MN - Minot Minotauros goaltender Samu Lonkila stopped all 30 shots that came his way for his third shutout of the 2018 NAHL Robertson Cup Playoffs as he backstopped his club to a 2-0 win in Game 2 of the Robertson Cup Semi-Finals against the Fairbanks Ice Dogs.

    It was a must-win game for Minot and they played like it throughout the contest. Both Lonkila and Fairbanks goalie Josh Benson were solid for their clubs through the opening two periods, which didn't feature any scoring, but had plenty of chances for both teams. Minot thought they had broken through early in the 3rd period, but the officials on the ice ruled that a puck was kicked in. However, just seconds ticked by after the call when Minot forward Miroslav Mucha was able to maneuver with the puck in the Ice Dogs zone and weave around the defense, ultimately putting a backhand laser past Benson for a 1-0 Minotauros lead. Lonkila held the fort the rest of the game for the Minotauros and an unassisted empty-net goal from Alex Adams secured the 2-0 win.

    With the Game 2 win, Minot forced a 3rd and deciding Game 3 of the Semi-Final series, which will take place today at 3:00pm.

    Hunsaker posted the Beavers top finish on the day as she placed seventh overall in the javelin competition with a throw of 113-10.
 
    Led by Huether and Hunsaker, the Beavers finished 15th in the team competition with three points.

     ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Eddie Rosario scored from first on Mitch Garver's double in the 12th inning and the Minnesota Twins beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-3 Saturday night.
 
     After Jefry Marte grounded out on a weak ball back to Trevor Hildenberger (1-0) with the bases loaded to end the 11th, Rosario came all the way around on Garver's ground ball down the third-base line to put the Twins back in front. Rosario, who went 2 for 4, had singled on a ground ball past Noe Ramirez (1-2).
 
     Garver then scored from second on Gregorio Petit's single to center.
 
     Fernando Rodney earned his seventh save, getting Zack Cozart to fly out to left to end the game after walking Rene Rivera with two outs.
 
     The Twins improved to 7-2 on their 10-game road trip, which concludes against the Angels on Sunday.
 
     Minnesota got to starter Nick Tropeano with three runs in the third, as Byron Buxton, Joe Mauer and Brian Dozier each had an RBI.
 
     The Angels got one back in the bottom of the third when Cozart scored on a chopper to third by Justin Upton to make it 3-1.
 
     Andrelton Simmons cut the margin to 3-2 in the sixth, scoring on a sacrifice fly by Luis Valbuena after getting a triple when Max Kepler couldn't make a diving catch.
 
     Upton got his second RBI in the seventh, driving in Calhoun to tie the score at 3. Albert Pujols struck out with runners on second and third to end the inning.

     WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Dustin Byfuglien scored about a minute after the puck dropped and the Winnipeg Jets built a three-goal lead early in the first period and went on to beat the Vegas Golden Knights 4-2 on Saturday night in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.
 
     Patrik Laine and Joel Armia had goals 46 seconds apart to put the Jets up 3-0. Mark Scheifele gave Winnipeg a 4-1 lead midway through the second period with his 12th goal this postseason.
 
     Brayden McNabb scored midway through the first and William Karlsson late in the second period to pull Vegas within two, but the expansion team couldn't get closer.

     UNDATED (AP) - Left fielder Brett Gardner threw out Matt Olson at the plate with the help of a replay reversal to help Aroldis Chapman escape a bases-loaded, no-outs jam in the ninth inning, and the Yankees beat the Oakland Athletics 7-6 Saturday on Neil Walker's run-scoring single on the 11th to avoid New York's first three-game losing streak since last August.
 
     Chapman walked three straight batters around a wild pitch starting the ninth, his velocity down 3-4 mph on the cool afternoon from the 100 mph-plus heat that overpowered Boston on warm spring nights earlier in the week. After visits to the mound by both pitching coach Larry Rothschild and a trainer to check on a cracked fingernail, Chapman struck out Mark Canha, and pinch-hitter Jonathan Lucroy followed with a 297-foot fly to left field.
 
     New York, now 27-12, stopped a two-game losing streak that followed its 17-1 run. The Yankees began that day tied with AL East rival Boston for the best record in the major leagues.
 
     In other MLB games:
 
     - Scott Schebler hit a three-run go-ahead home run to lead the Cincinnati Reds a 5-3 over the Dodgers. The Reds (13-27) have won five consecutive games.
 
     - Freddie Freeman connected twice, Jose Bautista atoned for a costly error with his first homer of the season, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Miami Marlins 10-5. Atlanta broke a 5-all tie in the eighth inning, when Marlins relievers issued three consecutive walks - each on a 3-2 pitch, and the last two with the bases loaded.
 
     - Gregory Polanco and Francisco Cervelli homered and the Pittsburgh Pirates took advantage of a sloppy inning by former closer Tony Watson to slip by the San Francisco Giants 6-5 for their fifth straight victory. Watson loaded the bases in the eighth and brought home the winning run when he plunked Jordy Mercer.
 
     - Kyle Freeland pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Trevor Story homered twice and doubled to drive in Colorado's runs, and the Rockies beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-0. Freeland kept the Brewers in check the night after they had battered Rockies' pitchers in an 11-10 win in 10 innings. Colorado snapped a three-game losing streak.
 
     - Charlie Morton struck out a career-high 14 in seven solid innings and Evan Gattis, Brian McCann and Carlos Correa all homered to back him up and help the Houston Astros to a 6-1 win over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night.
 
     - Stephen Strasburg struck out nine in 6 2/3 innings, and the Washington Nationals beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 for their third straight victory against the NL West leaders. Strasburg allowed one run and five hits in Washington's sixth win in seven games.
 
     - David Price pitched 5 1/3 innings to win his first start since being diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, Hanley Ramirez hit a two-run home run and the Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2.

     - Willson Contreras hit his third homer in two games and drove in three runs, and the Chicago Cubs beat the crosstown White Sox 8-4 at a rainy and cold Wrigley Field. Contreras continued his surge after hitting two home runs and setting a career high with seven RBIs in Friday's romp.
 
     - Matthew Boyd pitched impressively until the seventh inning, and the Detroit Tigers broke through with three runs in the sixth on their way to a 4-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners in the first game of a doubleheader. Jose Iglesias hit a two-run homer for the Tigers, and Grayson Greiner contributed the first two RBIs of his big league career. Robinson Cano hit a three-run homer in the fifth inning, and the Mariners slugged their way to a 9-5 victory over Detroit, salvaging a split.
 
     - Francisco Lindor homered twice and had four extra base hits, and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Kansas City Royals 6-2 on Saturday. Lindor hit solo home runs in the third and seventh, doubled twice and extended his hitting streak to 13 games. The All-Star shortstop also had the third four-hit game of his career.
 
     - David Hess pitched six effective innings in his big league debut, Jonathan Schoop hit two home runs and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-3 in the first game of a doubleheader. Manny Machado also homered for the Orioles, who shook off an early deficit to extend their winning streak to four games - their longest run since last August.  Brad Miller and C.J. Cron homered off former teammate Alex Cobb, and Tampa Bay breezed to a 10-3 win in game two and snap a five-game losing streak.
 
     - Eddie Rosario scored from first on Mitch Garver's double in the 12th inning and the Minnesota Twins beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-3.

     - Eric Hosmer hit an RBI double with no outs in the 13th inning to give the San Diego Padres a 2-1 victory against the St. Louis Cardinals. Hosmer, San Diego's $144 million man, drove the first pitch from Mike Mayers down the right field line and after a few strides, tossed his batting helmet aside in celebration.
 
     - The Mets at Philadelphia was postponed due to inclement weather.

     KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Kevin Harvick passed Martin Truex Jr. with one lap to go to win Saturday night's race at Kansas Speedway, his fifth win in what has turned out to be a dominant start to the season.
 
     Harvick qualified on the pole and ran near the front all night, escaping all the trouble caused by a couple of late-race cautions. He was fifth after a restart with 10 laps to go, but rode four fresh tires to second place, then swung past Truex at the start-finish line to take the lead.
 
     Truex finished second after winning both races at Kansas last year. Joey Logano was third, Kyle Larson rallied from a late crash to finish fourth and Denny Hamlin rounded out the top five.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Will Power's timing was impeccable Saturday. He picked the perfect strategy with his red tires. He pressed the push-to-pass button at precisely the right moment. He gave Roger Penske his 200th series win at Penske's place - Indianapolis.
 
     Power overcame a late caution period that shrunk his lead, barely won the race off pit lane on the final stop and even drove through some light rain to pull away from Scott Dixon by 2.2443 seconds for his second straight IndyCar Grand Prix victory.
