Grace is troublesome for control freaks - sinners curved in on themselves, bent on securing their own existence and status.

The playoffs have arrived for the Expedition League and the Souris Valley Sabre Dogs are one for four teams looking to win a championship....

    MINOT, ND - The playoffs have arrived for the Expedition League and the Souris Valley Sabre Dogs are one for four teams looking to win a championship. The two divisions hold what is essentially a play-in game to the league championship series tonight.

    Souris Valley, as the Lewis Division regular season champ, will host the Badlands Big Sticks tonight at 7:05 pm at Corbett Field. Western Nebraska, as the Clark Division regular season champ, will host the Hastings Sodbusters. Winners of tonight's games meet in a best-of-three championship series Friday through Sunday.

    MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins continue a four game series in Cleveland tonight. In the series opener last night, the Indians pounded the Twins 10-0. Adalberto Mejia (1-0, 2.60 ERA) will get the start for Minnesota. Carlos Carrasco (13-5, 3.66 ERA) goes for Cleveland. Carrasco overpowered the Twins last Wednesday in Minneapolis striking out 10 and walking none.

     CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland Indians went the rock 'n' roll route with a logo for the 2019 All-Star Game that won't offend. Inspired by the city's deep musical roots, the team today unveiled its logo for next year's game - a guitar outlined with red baseball stitches - and no Chief Wahoo.
 
     The Indians are hosting the Midsummer Classic for the sixth time, and next year's game coincides with the 25th anniversary of Progressive Field. Cleveland hosted the 1997 game at its downtown ballpark, just a short drive from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
 
     Next season marks the first time the Indians won't wear the divisive Wahoo logo on their uniforms. The club will continue to sell merchandise featuring the logo.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Washington Nationals have signed the free agent reliever Greg Holland, who they hope can regain his effectiveness and provide leadership in the clubhouse. Holland was 0-2 with a 7.92 ERA in 32 games with St. Louis before being designated for assignment on July 27.
 
     After the right-hander worked out with Washington on Monday, the Nationals announced his signing on Tuesday before facing the Atlanta Braves in a split doubleheader. Holland pitched a scoreless seventh inning in the first game, with a walk and three strikeouts.
 
     In other news from the majors:
 
     - Robinson Cano has begun his minor league rehab assignment ahead of his return from an 80-game suspension for violating baseball's joint drug agreement. Cano played Monday for Triple-A Tacoma and is scheduled to play there again Tuesday. After that, he may play some games for Class A Everett later in the week. Cano is eligible to rejoin Seattle on Aug. 14. When he does, he's expected to play first, second and third base.
 
     - New York Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury is officially out for the season after surgery on his left hip. The Yankees say Ellsbury had arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn labrum. The expected recovery time is about six months. The 34-year-old Ellsbury has been out all season with a number of injuries including an oblique strain and sore back. The Yankees placed him on the 60-day disabled list in May.

     ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The Orlando Magic will play a pair of regular-season games in Mexico City in December. The Magic will host the Chicago Bulls on Dec. 13 then play the Utah Jazz on Dec. 15. It is the third straight year that the Arena Ciudad de Mexico has hosted the NBA. Both games are designated as home games for the Magic.
 
     This is Orlando's second visit to Mexico City. The last was in 2012 for a preseason game against the New Orleans Pelicans. Center Nikola Vucevic is the only current player who was on the roster for that game.
 
     The Bulls are playing their first-ever regular-season game outside of the United States and Canada.
 
     The Jazz have played four times in Mexico, but the last visit was in 2003 when Utah beat the Dallas Mavericks 90-85.

     WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - NBA All-Star and former Wake Forest guard Chris Paul is donating $2.5 million in support of the basketball team. The donation announced today is the school's largest by a former Wake Forest basketball player. School officials say it will assist a project to expand and enhance the men's and women's locker rooms, and the men's locker room will be named for him.
 
     The Houston Rockets guard and Winston-Salem native led Wake Forest to its first No. 1 ranking in 2004-05 before becoming a nine-time All-Star and two-time Olympic gold medal winner with the U.S. national team.

     UNDATED (AP) - Serena Williams says she's been struggling with postpartum emotions and wants other new moms to know they are "totally normal."
 
     The 23-time Grand Slam champion suffered the most lopsided defeat of her career, a 6-1, 6-0 loss to Johanna Konta in San Jose, California, last Tuesday. She then withdrew from this week's Rogers Cup in Montreal, citing personal reasons.
 
     In an Instagram post, she write: "Last week was not easy for me. Not only was I accepting some tough personal stuff, but I just was in a funk. Mostly, I felt like I was not a good mom."
 
     The 36-year-old Williams was the runner-up at Wimbledon last month. That was just her fourth tournament since returning to the tour after having a baby in September and dealing with a health scare related to blood clots.
