    MINNEAPOLIS - For the second day in a row the Cleveland Indians tallied a walkoff win over the Minnesota Twins. Today it was Michael Brantley that delivered an RBI single that barely squeezed under the glove of Twins first baseman Miguel Sano for a 5-4 win. Last night it was Francisco Lindor who connected for a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning as the Indians won 5-2. Cleveland takes three of four games in the series and moves 11 over the Twins in the American League Central.

     EAGAN, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings say left guard Nick Easton's neck injury has landed him on the injured reserve list, likely ending his season. Coach Mike Zimmer says Easton has a bulging disc in his neck. He hasn't practiced since Aug. 3. Easton started 12 games in 2017 and five games the year before, playing both center and guard.
 
     The Vikings may turn to veteran Tom Compton at left guard in Easton's absence. Compton is entering his seventh year in the league, having played for Washington, Atlanta and Chicago.
 
     Easton was acquired by the Vikings in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers before the 2015 regular season. He will be a free agent next March.

     ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - There will be more than the usual share of intrigue when the Minnesota Vikings and Denver Broncos face each other in a preseason opener on Saturday. Broncos quarterback Case Keenum led the Vikings to the NFC title game before being passed over for Kirk Cousins. Trevor Siemian is in Minnesota after winning the Broncos' quarterback job in 2016 and '17. Gametime is 8 pm Saturday in Denver.

     UNDATED (AP) - The NFL preseason kicks off tonight for many teams.
 
     Top overall draft pick Baker Mayfield will see some action when the Cleveland Browns visit the New York Giants, who have their own prized rookie in second overall selection Saquon Barkley. Cleveland isn't expecting too much from Mayfield early on with veteran Tyrod Taylor as the starter, but New York expects a huge boost for its offense from the Penn State running back.
 
     Andrew Luck is expected to take some snaps for the Indianapolis Colts when they face the Seahawks in Seattle. It's been roughly 600 days between starts for the Colts quarterback, who's been sidelined with a series of injuries.
 
     Elsewhere on the first full night of preseason games, it's Carolina at Buffalo, Chicago at Cincinnati, New Orleans at Jacksonville, Tampa Bay at Miami, Pittsburgh at Philadelphia, the Los Angeles Rams at Baltimore, Washington at New England, Tennessee at Green Bay, Houston at Kansas City, and Dallas at San Francisco.

     CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland Indians outfielder Leonys Martin has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a non-baseball condition. Martin became sick Tuesday night and didn't play Wednesday night against the Minnesota Twins. He was put on the DL before today's game.
 
     Martin is batting .333 with two home runs and four RBIs in six games since being acquired from Detroit at the trade deadline. He's hitting .255 with 11 homers and 33 RBIs overall in 84 games.
 
     Outfielder Greg Allen was recalled from Triple-A Columbus.

     UNDATED (AP) - LSU has suspended sophomore linebacker Tylor Taylor, apparently after learning he'd been arrested about two months ago in connection with a firearms theft from a pawn shop in Georgia.
 
     An official university statement says only that the suspension stems from a violation of team rules. However, police records in Cumming, Georgia, show that authorities suspect Taylor drove four suspected burglars to and from the pawn shop where the theft occurred on Jan. 8.
 
     A police report provided to The Associated Press shows stolen firearms were recovered and a suspect told police that Taylor was the getaway driver. The report states that Taylor declined to speak with police and requested an attorney.
 
     The 6-foot-2, 242-pound Taylor played in all 13 LSU games last season, starting five. He was in on 32 tackles and one-and-a-half sacks.

The College Football Playoff also announced the committee's recusals for this season. The five athletic directors on the committee must recuse from discussions about their school.

     ST. LOUIS (AP) - Golfweek is reporting the PGA of America is trying to regain control of computer servers that have kept officials from accessing files for the PGA Championship.
 
     The magazine says on its website that PGA staff members discovered their systems had been compromised when attempts to access files generated a message that the network had been penetrated and that any attempt to break the encryption could cause files to be lost.
 
     The PGA of America declined comment, saying it was an ongoing investigation.
 
     Golfweek reports the files included promotional banners and logos that are used in digital and print communications, and on digital signage around Bellerive Country Club. The magazine says the message included a Bitcoin wallet number, without stating what was required to regain control of the files.

     UNDATED (AP) - Nashville Predators general manager David Poile headlines the class of the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame.
 
     Former University of Michigan coach Red Berenson, star forward Natalie Darwitz, retired NHL referee Paul Stewart, and the late Leland "Hago" Harrington will be inducted on Dec. 12 at a ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee.
 
     Poile has run an NHL team the past 36 seasons, including 15 with the Washington Capitals and 21 with the Predators. He has the most victories of any GM in league history. The U.S. won a silver medal at the 2010 Olympics with Poile as assistant GM, and he was GM of the 2014 Olympic team.
 
     Poile and Berenson were each born in Canada and went on to make significant impacts on hockey in the United States.
