     MINOT, ND - The Souris Valley Sabre Dogs began the second half of the season the way they ended the first, winning. The Sabre Dogs used 12 innings to defeat the Badlands Big Sticks 12-11 last night in Dickinson. Alex Hay led off the 12th inning with a home run that would prove to be the difference. Souris Valley has won 15 of their last 16 games. They'll return home for a game against the Pierre Trappers tonight at Corbett Field.

     MILWAUKEE (AP) - Nate Orf hit a solo homer in Milwaukee's two-run seventh after going hitless in his first seven major league at-bats, helping the Brewers beat the sliding Minnesota Twins 3-2 on Wednesday.
 
     Brad Miller homered to right-center off Jose Berrios (8-7) to lead off the bottom of the seventh for the Brewers. Two batters later, Orf sent a 2-2 curveball down the left-field line for a two-run lead.
 
     Jesus Aguilar and Manny Pina lifted Orf up by his legs at the dugout steps to help the rookie answer a plea for a curtain call from a vocal crowd.
 
     Jeremy Jeffress (6-1) picked up the win despite allowing inherited runner Brian Dozier to score from third on Jorge Polanco's bloop single to left for a 1-all tie in the top of the seventh. The hit snapped a stretch of 20 1/3 scoreless innings for Minnesota against the Brewers.
 
     Corey Knebel worked a rocky ninth for his 10th save. Eduardo Escobar hit his 13th homer and Jorge Polanco singled with two out, but Max Kepler flied to left to end the game.
 
     Knebel was helped by a sparkling defensive play from Keon Broxton. The center fielder ran full speed back to the wall and jumped with an outstretched glove to rob Dozier of a homer for the second out.
 
     Berrios allowed five hits, struck out three and walked two in seven innings. He got little support from Minnesota's punchless offense, which managed just three hits in the first 6 1/3 innings against Chase Anderson.
 
     The NL Central-leading Brewers picked up their seventh sweep of the season. Minnesota dropped to 1-8 on its nine-game road trip.

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Natalie Achonwa had 17 points and nine rebounds to help the Indiana Fever beat the Minnesota Lynx 71-59 on Tuesday night. The Fever (2-16) won their first regular-season game at the Target Center since 2011.

    Achonwa shot 7 of 10 from the field and tied her career-high with three blocks. Rookie Victoria Vivians had 13 points - her fifth consecutive game scoring in double figures - and Cappie Pondexter added a season-high 12 points for Indiana.

    Pondexter, who was signed by Indiana on Sunday, converted a 3-point play to spark an 8-0 run that gave the Fever a 59-51 lead when Achonwa hit a jumper with 5:53 to play. Maya Moore hit a 3-pointer about a minute later to pull the Lynx within four but Vivians answered with a deep 3 as the shot clock expired as Indiana scored 10 of the final 12 points.

    Rebekkah Brunson, the only Minnesota player to score in double figures, had 13 points. The Lynx (10-7), who shot just 32.8 percent from the field, had their seven-game win streak snapped.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Boston Red Sox and Washington Nationals were studies in contrast during their three-game series in the Nation's Capital. The Bosox's sweep puts them a season-high 30 games over .500 and drops the fading Nats one game under .500.
 
     Eduardo Rodriguez and Jackie Bradley Jr. led the Red Sox past the Nationals, 3-0. Rodriguez struck out six over six innings before three relievers finished up a combined six-hitter. Bradley delivered two RBIs with a sacrifice fly and a double to help Boston keep its one-game lead over the Yankees in the AL East.
 
     The Nationals kept the Red Sox scoreless before losing their fifth in a row. Washington has dropped 17 of its last 22 to fall under .500 this late in a season for the first time since 2015.
 
     The Yankees kept pace with the Red Sox as Giancarlo Stanton crushed a three-run homer and CC Sabathia tossed five-hit ball over six innings of a 6-2 win against the Braves. Aaron Judge homered for the third time in four games, giving him 24 for the season. And Yankees catcher Kyle Higashioka became the ninth player since 1920 whose first three hits were home runs.
 
     Elsewhere around the majors:
 
     - The Phillies are within 1 1/2 games of the NL East-leading Braves after Aaron Nola and Nick Williams led Philadelphia to its fourth consecutive victory, 4-1 over the Orioles. Nola is 11-2 after holding Baltimore to a run and seven hits while striking out nine over seven innings. Williams launched a two-run homer to help Nola win his fifth straight decision.
 
     - Seventh-inning homers by Brad Miller and Nate Orf gave the Brewers a 3-1 lead in a 3-2 victory against the Twins. Orf was 0-for-7 in the majors before going deep off Minnesota starter and loser Juan Berrios, who carried a three-hitter into the inning. Chase Anderson allowed a run and three hits over 6 1/3 innings to help Milwaukee stay one game ahead of Chicago in the NL Central.
 
     - Willson Contreras hit a tiebreaking homer in the sixth inning and later added a two-run double to complete the scoring in the Cubs' sixth straight win, 5-2 over the Tigers. Contreras was also at the plate when Javier Baez stole home for the tying run in the fourth. David Bote smacked a solo homer and winning pitcher Jose Quintana gave up two runs over six innings.
 
     - Yasmani Grandal and Chris Taylor drove in three runs apiece and the Dodgers won their fourth in a row by topping the Pirates, 6-4. Winning pitcher Rich Hill gave up two runs and four hits over five innings for Los Angeles. The Dodgers failed to homer after going deep 18 times during a seven-game home run streak.
 
     - Los Angeles is within a half-game of the NL West lead after the first-place Diamondbacks absorbed an 8-4 loss to the Cardinals. Yadier Molina capped the Redbirds' five-run seventh with a three-run homer that put St. Louis ahead 6-2. Yairo Munoz also homered and Tommy Pham had three RBIs, including the tiebreaking single in the seventh.
 
     - The Mariners' eight-game winning streak is over after Kole Calhoun belted a two-run homer and Luis Valbuena collected two RBIs in the Angels' 7-4 win at Seattle. Calhoun had three hits and three RBIs in helping Garrett Richards get the victory in his return from the disabled list. Calhoun is batting .306 with four homers and eight RBIs since returning from the DL on June 18.
 
     - The Astros lead the AL West by 1 1/2 games over the Mariners after beating the Rangers, 5-4 on a sacrifice fly by Evan Gattis in the 10th inning. Yuli Gurriel homered, doubled and scored twice as Houston overcame an early four-run deficit. Jose Altuve delivered a one-out single in the 10th for his major league-leading 115th hit before scoring the winning run.
 
     - Cleveland's 3-2 win at Kansas City gives the Indians an 11 1/2-game lead in the AL Central. Trevor Bauer helped the Indians complete a three-game sweep by holding the Royals to a pair of runs and seven hits over 7 2/3. Michael Brantley hit an RBI double in the first and scored on Edwin Encarnacion's sac-fly later in the inning.
 
     - The A's earned a 4-2 win over the Padres as Stephen Piscotty doubled three times and had three RBIs. Khris Davis singled home the other run and Lou Trivino retired two batters to improve to 7-1. Oakland has won 14 of 17 to move a season-high nine games over .500.
 
     - The Rockies completed a three-game sweep as Chris Iannetta (eye-ah-NEH'-tuh) homered in the seventh and Tyler Anderson pitched eight innings of a 1-0 shutout of the Giants. Anderson (6-3) scattered two hits and tied a season high with nine strikeouts in Colorado's sixth victory in seven games. It was the first 1-0 game at Coors Field in eight years.
 
     - Jose Urena and three relievers combined on a four-hitter and the Marlins shook off the hangover from a 16-inning loss to beat the Rays, 3-0. J.T. Riddle singled, tripled and homered to support Urena, who scattered three this and struck out five over six innings. Riddle broke a scoreless tie with an RBI triple in the sixth before scoring on JB Shuck's fielder's choice later in the inning.
 
     - Starting pitcher Sal Romano dropped down a suicide squeeze during a six-run fourth inning that propelled the Reds to a 7-4 win against the White Sox. Jesse Winker and Jose Peraza each had a two-run single during the big inning to help Cincinnati withstand homers by Daniel Palka and Yoan Moncada. The Reds have come from behind in eight of their last 11 wins and are 13-4 in their last 17 games.
 
     - Todd Frazier banged out a two-run homer to ignite the Mets' five-run fifth in a 6-3 victory at Toronto. Seth Lugo worked three innings of one-run relief to get the victory in New York's third win in 14 games. The Mets' bullpen came through with five strong innings after being torched for six runs over 1 2/3 innings of Tuesday's 8-6 loss to the Blue Jays.
