Today's Thought

Grace is love. But love of a special sort…which is kind to the unkind and generous to the ungrateful and undeserving.

    MINOT, ND - The Sabre Dogs are a step closer to securing a post season birth. Souris Valley picked up a 9-5 win over the Pierre Trappers last night at Corbett Field. Carson Tonini pitched a gem giving up only two hits and two walks, striking out 11 in six innings. The Dogs need only one more win to essentially seal their playoff ticket. They will get that chance tonight in game two of four against the Trappers tonight.



     MIAMI (AP) - Newly acquired Twins reliever Sam Dyson blew a three-run lead in the ninth inning, then Harold Ramirez hit a leadoff homer in the 12th that sent the Miami Marlins over the Twins 5-4 Thursday.
     The AL Central-leading Twins have been revamping their bullpen after watching a whopping lead over Cleveland dwindle in the last month. Minnesota got reliever Sergio Romo in a trade with Miami over the weekend and acquired Dyson from San Francisco in a deadline-beating deal Wednesday.
     Romo pitched a perfect eighth and turned a 4-1 lead over in the ninth to Dyson, who had a 2.47 ERA in 49 games for the Giants this season. Dyson faced four batters and didn't retire any of them, allowing two walks and two hits before being pulled.
     The Marlins tied it with three runs, and Ramirez homered in the 12th, connecting off Cody Stashak (0-1) to avert a three-game sweep. Ramirez also doubled home a run in the second.
     The walk-off win was the Marlins' third this season, and all have come since July 18.
     Max Kepler led off the game with his 30th homer and Byron Buxton drove in two runs with his 30th double for the Twins. But they struck out 15 times, and went hitless in their final 15 at-bats.
     Minnesota's Michael Pineda allowed one run in six innings and departed for a pinch-hitter after throwing 80 pitches.
     Dyson gave up two walks, a single and an RBI double by Jon Berti. Neil Walker tied the game with a two-run single off Taylor Rogers, but the left-hander struck out Jorge Alfaro and Bryan Holaday with the bases loaded to force extra innings.
     Miami won despite stranding 13 and going 2 for 10 with runners in scoring position.
     Marlins starter Jordan Yamamoto allowed four runs in six innings. Jeff Brigham (1-0) earned his first career victory with two perfect innings, including a 14-pitch showdown with Kepler, who flied out.
     UP NEXT
     Twins: LHP Martin Perez (8-4, 4.38) is scheduled to start Friday when the Twins open a 10-game homestand against Kansas City.


     CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Hours after visiting a hospital because of a kidney stone, Vic Fangio won a football game.
     The new coach of the Denver Broncos saw a late interception set up rookie Juwann Winfree's 15-yard touchdown catch Thursday night, and his team edged the Atlanta Falcons 14-10 in the Hall of Fame game to open the NFL's preseason.
     Yes, it was an exhibition game - the real first test comes Sept. 9 at Oakland. Still, Fangio served two decades as an NFL assistant before getting his chance to run a team. So this truly was a debut.
     Trey Johnson's interception of Matt Schaub's pass after the Atlanta backup quarterback was pressured set up Denver at the Falcons 38 with 5:21 remaining. A 14-yard pass interference call on fourth down against Rashard Causey kept Denver in it, but the Broncos were hurt by a holding penalty against rookie Ryan Crozier.
     Unfazed, rookie Brett Rypien hurled a pass into the right corner of the end zone, where it was deflected and Winfree latched onto it with 1:26 remaining.
     Fangio also became the first coach to utilize the new rule allowing challenges of pass interference calls. Late in the second quarter, Linden Stephens was called for a 43-yard defensive penalty. Officials upheld the call.
     Both teams had eight-play first-half drives for touchdowns. Denver's was finished by Khalfani Muhammad's 3-yard run up the middle. Atlanta tied it with a precise two-minute drill guided by first-year quarterback Kurt Benkert, who is seeking a backup job to Matt Ryan. Benkert took the Falcons 61 yards in 1:17, hitting running back Brian Hill with a 3-yard touchdown pass.
     Benkert conducted another impressive series in the third period, going 56 yards in 12 plays to Giorgio Tavecchio's 27-yard field goal for a 10-7 lead.
     Benkert headed to the locker room early in the fourth quarter with a toe injury. He went 19 of 34 for 185 yards.


     UNDATED (AP) - Sam Dyson provided no relief for Minnesota on Thursday, one day after being acquired from San Francisco to fortify the Twins' bullpen.

     Dyson made his Twins debut and promptly blew a 4-1 lead in the ninth before Harold Ramirez launched a walk-off homer in the 12th to complete the Marlins' 5-4 comeback victory. Sergio Romo fared better just a day after coming over from the Giants, working a scoreless eighth to keep the Twins ahead by three.

     Max Kepler led off the game with his 30th homer and Byron Buxton hit a two-run double for the Twins, who continue to lead the AL Central by three games over Cleveland.

     The Indians were 7-1 losers against the Astros as Alex Bregman went 3-for-3 with a solo homer and two RBIs. George Springer led off the game with a blast and scored three times to help Gerrit Cole improve to 13-5. Cole won his ninth straight decision by holding the Indians to a run and four hits over six innings as Houston kept its eight-game lead in the AL West.

     Yasiel Puig and Franmil Reyes each had a hit in their first game since being acquired by Cleveland from Cincinnati. Indians pitcher Danny Salazar made his first start in two years and allowed two runs over four innings before leaving the game with a sore groin.

     Elsewhere on major league diamonds:

     - Mike Zunino and Austin Meadows homered as the Rays thumped the Red Sox, 9-4 to complete a three-game sweep. Rookie Brendan McKay struck out seven while giving up three runs and seven hits over 5 1/3 innings for his second big league win. Xander Bogaerts went 4 for 4 with two homers for the Red Sox, who are 3  1/2 games out of a playoff berth following their fourth consecutive loss.

     - Matt Chapman was mired in a 1-for-31 slump before crushing a go-ahead, two-run homer off Josh Hader in the eighth inning of the Athletics' 5-3 win over the Brewers. Chad Pinder also homered for the A's, who remain a half-game behind Tampa Bay for the second AL wild card. Brewers starter Chase Anderson held Oakland to one run and two hits over six innings before Milwaukee stayed one game off the NL Central lead.

     - The Cardinals rolled to an 8-0 rout of the Cubs to regain a one-game lead over Chicago atop the NL Central. Matt Wieters belted a three-run homer to back Jack Flaherty, who allowed just one hit while striking out nine over seven innings for his first victory since May 14. Kolten Wong had three hits and an RBI as St. Louis took the rubber match of the three-game set.

     - The Braves have a seven-game lead over Washington and Philadelphia in the NL East after Freddie Freeman hit a three-run homer and Adam Duvall went deep again in a 4-1, rain-shortened win against the Reds. Max Fried improved to 12-4 with his third straight win, surrendering just four hits and a run over six-plus innings. The game was stopped by rain with Fried on the mound in the seventh before the game was called following a two-hour wait.

     - J.T. Realmuto belted a three-run homer and fell a triple shy of the cycle while the Phillies were drubbing the Giants, 10-2. Cesar Hernandez and Roman Quinn also went deep as Philadelphia took the rubber match of the three-game set to pull into a tie with Washington for the first NL wild card. Jake Arrieta took a two-hitter into the fifth but left after 71 pitches while the team continues to monitor a bone spur in his pitching elbow.

     - Rookie Will Smith hit his first career grand slam and Cody Bellinger launched his first home run in two weeks before adding a two-run double in the Dodgers' 8-2 romp over the Padres. Clayton Kershaw passed Sandy Koufax on the Dodgers' career strikeouts list among left-handers, fanning five while allowing two runs over six innings. Kershaw improved to 10-2, and Los Angeles stretched its lead in the NL West to a whopping 16 games over the Giants.

     - Rookie Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit two of the Blue Jays' five home runs in an 11-2 dismantling of the Orioles. Randal Grichuk, Danny Jansen and Billy McKinney also had homered in Toronto's fourth straight win. Jays rookie Trent Thornton gave up a run and five hits over six innings after being reinstated from the 10-day injured list.

     - The Mets extended their season-high winning streak to seven games by completing a three-game sweep of the White Sox, 4-0. Zack Wheeler tossed seven innings of four-hit ball in his first outing since New York declined to deal him before Wednesday's trade deadline. Robinson Cano opened the scoring with a solo shot in the second before delivering an RBI double to ignite the Mets' three-run sixth.



     UNDATED (AP) - Major League Baseball has handed down its suspensions stemming from Tuesday's brawl between the Pirates and Reds in Cincinnati.

     Pittsburgh reliever Keone Kela received the biggest punishment, a 10-game ban after admitting he threw at a batter during the game. Cincinnati reliever Amir Garrett earned an eight-game suspension and former Red Yasiel Puig picked up a three-game ban. Puig was traded to the Indians after the game.

     Pirates infielder Jose Osuna was suspended five games, while Pittsburgh pitcher Kyle Crick and Reds pitcher Jared Hughes each got three.

     Reds manager David Bell was ordered to sit out six games, and Pirates skipper Clint Hurdle was penalized two games. Bell already had been ejected when he ran onto the field to get after Hurdle.

     All six players have appealed their suspensions.

     In other baseball news:

     - The White Sox have put third baseman Yoan Moncada on the 10-day injured list with a strained right hamstring. Outfielder Ryan Cordell was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte.

     - Danny Farquhar has rejoined the White Sox as their new minor league pitching instructor after ending his comeback attempt. The 32-year-old former reliever suffered a brain hemorrhage in the Chicago dugout last season.

     - Major league batters are on pace to hit 600 more home runs than in any previous season, nearly 10% above the record set two years ago. There were 1,057 home runs in July, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, breaking the previous July record of 961 in 2004. Batters are on pace to hit 6,712 home runs, well above the record 6,105 set in 2017 and up 20% from 5,585 last year.



     UNDATED (AP) - Five-time Pro Bowl center Ryan Kalil has surprisingly come out of retirement to join the New York Jets. The 34-year-old Kalil and the Jets agreed to terms on a deal Thursday. He'll need to pass a physical before signing his contract. Kalil announced at the end of last season that he was retiring from playing football after 12 a 12-year career spent entirely with the Panthers.

     In other NFL news:

     - Panthers quarterback Cam Newton says he has not fully recovered from offseason shoulder surgery. Newton says uncorking a few 45-yard throws earlier in training camp felt good and provided him with a sigh of relief. But he cautioned Thursday that his rehab remains "a work in progress."

     - Safety Tre Boston is back with the Panthers after a one-year run with the Cardinals. The five-year NFL veteran spent his first three seasons in Carolina before playing for Arizona and the Los Angeles Chargers. He combined for 122 tackles, 17 pass breakups and eight interceptions over his last two years.

     - Jaguars rookie linebacker Quincy Williams will miss 4-to-6 weeks because of a torn meniscus in his right knee. The team says Williams will have arthroscopic surgery in the coming days and has an outside shot at playing in the season opener against Kansas City.

     - Seahawks rookie first-round pick L.J. Collier will be sidelined for weeks after the defensive end suffered a badly sprained ankle in practice earlier this week. Collier went down after getting tangled up during a team drill.



     OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma City Thunder have waived forward Patrick Patterson after two seasons with the team. Patterson appeared in 145 games and averaged 3.8 points and 2.3 rebounds in 14.7 minutes per game. He originally was expected to be Oklahoma City's starting power forward heading into the 2017-18 season, but the Thunder traded for Carmelo Anthony before Jeremi Grant took over the job last season.



     NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Rangers have bought out the final two seasons of defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk's contract. Shattenkirk played only two seasons after signing a $26.6 million, four-year contract with New York, achieving his childhood dream of playing for the Rangers. He had just seven goals and 51 points in 119 games. The team will save more than $5 million against the salary cap this season and over $560,000 next season before taking a $1.43 million hit in 2021-22 and 2022-23.
