     MINOT, ND - Despite a spectacular kick return for a touchdown the Minot State football team began the season with a 52-7 loss at Minnesota-Duluth. The Beavers only score came at the end of the first quarter when Cory Carignan muffed the kick return only to run back into the end zone and grab it, narrowly avoiding a safety by breaking two tackles, then pushing it outside and getting a monster block from Ali Mohamed on the way to a 104-yard kick return for the ages. Minot State will play their home-opener on Saturday, September 14th against Northern State.

    MINNESOTA TWINS

     BOSTON (AP) - Left fielder Eddie Rosario threw out Rafael Devers at home plate for the final out, preserving the Minnesota Twins' 2-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night. Rosario delivered a strike to catcher Jason Castro as Devers attempted to score from first base on a double off the Green Monster by J.D. Martinez.
 
     Pinch-hitter Willians Astudillo drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning with just the second hit of the night for the Twins, who compensated by capitalizing on nine walks.
 
     Boston pitchers loaded the bases on walks twice and Astudillo made them pay the second time with a single that scored Miguel Sano.
 
     Minnesota took two of three in Boston and wrapped up an 8-2 road trip. The Twins extended their AL Central lead to 6 1/2 games over Cleveland and will be back home this weekend hosting the Indians for three games.
 
     The Red Sox lost for the third time in five games, further diminishing their chances of making the postseason after winning the World Series last year.
 
     Mookie Betts homered for the third time in two nights and added a double. He had Boston's only two hits until Xander Bogaerts singled with one out in the ninth.
 
     Minnesota starter Martin Perez (10-6) allowed one run and two hits in six innings. Taylor Rogers got his 24th save, thanks to Rosario's throw that was in plenty of time to get Devers.
 
     Andrew Cashner (11-8) got two outs in the seventh but loaded the bases on three walks. Astudillo batted for Jonathan Schoop and singled to right off Matt Barnes, the only Boston pitcher not to walk a batter.
 
     The Red Sox didn't have a hit until Betts lined a homer off the Pesky Pole in right in the fourth to put Boston up 1-0.
 
     Minnesota tied it in the fifth when C.J. Cron grounded into a double play with the bases loaded.
 
     Nathan Eovaldi pitched five innings for Boston, allowing one run on one hit and four walks. He struck out three. Marcus Walden worked a scoreless sixth before Cashner took over in the seventh.
 
     Twins center fielder Jake Cave robbed Christian Vazquez of extra bases with a diving catch on a sinking drive to right-center in the seventh.
 
     TRAINER'S ROOM
 
     Twins: SS Jorge Polanco was out of the lineup after leaving Wednesday's game in the eighth inning with a sore knuckle on his right hand.
 
     UP NEXT
 
     Twins: RHP Michael Pineda (11-5, 4.11 ERA) starts today against Cleveland RHP Adam Plutko (6-4, 4.53).

     NFL-SCHEDULE-PACKERS/BEARS

     CHICAGO (AP) - The 100th NFL season has opened with a victory for the Green Bay Packers. Aaron Rodgers hit Jimmy Graham in the second quarter for the game's only touchdown as the Packers tripped the Bears, 10-3 in Chicago. Rodgers at times looked uncomfortable in the attack designed by new coach Matt LaFleur. The two-time MVP was 18 of 30 for just 203 yards, including his eight-yard scoring strike to Graham.

     Both Rodgers and Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky were sacked five times as defense ruled the evening at Soldier Field. The Packers logged just 213 total net yards, while Chicago had 254. The Bears failed to score after Eddy Pineiro drilled a 38-yard field goal late in the first quarter.

     Former Bears safety Adrian Amos sealed the outcome by picking off an end-zone pass into double coverage with 1:58 remaining, the only turnover of the night.

     MLB-SCHEDULE

     UNDATED (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals have protected their 2 1/2-game lead over the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central by finishing 6-2 on their homestand.

     Paul DeJong hit an early two-run homer, and Paul Goldschmidt singled and scored twice in the Cards' sixth win in seven games.

     The Cubs kept pace as Kyle Schwarber's grand slam highlighted a five-run sixth that led them to a 10-5 win at Milwaukee. Anthony Rizzo had three RBIs, including a sacrifice fly that broke a 4-4 tie in the sixth. Willson Contreras was 4-for-5 with two RBIs and two runs scored in Chicago's third straight victory.

     Elsewhere on major league diamonds:

     - Atlanta leads the NL East by eight games over Washington after Max Fried outpitched Stephen Strasburg in the Braves' 4-2 victory over the Nationals. Fried pitched one-hit ball over seven innings, yielding only a first-inning single to NL batting leader Anthony Rendon. Ronald Acuna Jr. homered in the Braves' seventh consecutive win.

     - Phillip Ervin belted a walk-off homer leading off the 11th inning to give the Reds a 4-3 victory against the Phillies. Jose Iglesias hit a two-run homer in the sixth and Eugenio Suarez greeted former teammate Jared Hughes with his 41st home run. J.T. Realmuto smacked a tying home run in the eighth for the Phils, who find themselves four games behind the Cubs for the second NL wild card.

     - Neil Walker was 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBIs against his original team as the Marlins spotted the Pirates a 5-1, first-inning lead before earning a 10-7 victory at Pittsburgh. Marlins hurler Brian Moran became the first player in major league history to make his debut while facing his brother on the mound, striking out younger sibling Colin. Brian Moran worked a scoreless inning to get the victory.

     - The Astros erased a huge deficit and a small one in extra innings before Michael Brantley unloaded a two-run homer in the 13th to give Houston an 11-9 triumph over the Mariners. Houston rookie Kyle Tucker hit his first major league homer in the sixth and tied the score 9-all in the 12th with an RBI single. Josh Reddick also went deep for the AL West leaders, who were down 7-0 in the second.

     - Austin Meadows' 27th home run of the season gave the Rays a 5-4 lead in a 6-4 victory over the Blue Jays. Meadows also hit an RBI double in the eighth to help Tampa Bay stay a half-game ahead of Oakland for the first AL wild card. Toronto rookie Bo Bichette had his second multi-homer game since his recall this summer.

     - The Athletics trailed 6-1 before erupting for seven runs in the seventh inning of a 10-6 comeback over the Angels. Josh Phegley started the comeback with a two-run home run and Robbie Grossman slapped a two-run triple over the head of outfielder Mike Trout later in the seventh. Jurickson Profar (JUR-ihk-suhn PROH'-fahr) drove in three runs and Marcus Semien had four hits as Oakland moved one game ahead of Cleveland for the second AL wild card.

     - The Indians lost for the fifth time in seven games as Reynaldo Lopez fired a one-hitter in the Chicago White Sox's 7-1 win at Cleveland. Lopez struck out 11, retired his final 16 batters and threw 109 pitches in his first career complete game in 75 starts. Welington Castillo hit a two-run homer in the second off Zach Plesac, who was tagged for six runs over five-plus innings.

     - The Twins were able to celebrate a 2-1 win over the Red Sox after left fielder Eddie Rosario threw out Rafael Devers at home plate for the final out. Pinch-hitter Willians Astudillo drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning with just the second hit of the night for Minnesota. The Twins took two of three in Boston and wrapped up an 8-2 road trip that puts them atop the AL Central by 6 1/2 games over Cleveland.

     - Brandon Dixon, Dawel Lugo and Jordy Mercer smacked fourth-inning homers while the Tigers were erasing a 3-0 deficit in a 6-4 win at Kansas City. Harold Castro started the comeback with an RBI single in the third before Dixon and Lugo went deep on consecutive pitches the following inning. Detroit stopped a four-game losing streak and improved to 41-97, still the worst record in the majors.

     - Rookie Kolby Allard won his third straight start by limiting the Orioles to one run on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings of the Rangers' 3-1 verdict at Baltimore. Nick Solak slammed a go-ahead, two-run homer off John Means in the seventh to help Allard improve to 4-0 since being acquired from Atlanta. Means retired 10 in a row until Elvis Andrus led off the seventh with a single and scored on Solak's second big league homer.

     MLB-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - Astros right-hander Aaron Sanchez will have season-ending surgery on his throwing shoulder. Sanchez hasn't pitched since August 20th because of what the team said was a sore right pectoral muscle. The team had expected him to return this season, but general manager Jeff Luhnow said Thursday morning that he would have the unspecified procedure on his right shoulder next week and wouldn't return this year.

     Meanwhile, outfielder George Springer has been diagnosed with a mild concussion and will miss a few games. Springer was carted off the field on Tuesday after his head hit the wall after he made a catch against the Brewers.

     In other MLB news:

     - Bench coach Joe McEwing will manage the White Sox against the Angels this weekend. Skipper is slated for right rotator cuff surgery on Friday and plans to return to the dugout early next week.

     - Rays left-hander Blake Snell is scheduled to make his first rehab start Saturday in a playoff game with Triple-A Durham. Last year's AL Cy Young Award winner has been out since July 22 because of bone chips in his throwing elbow that required surgery.

     - Cubs closer Craig Kimbrel was put on the injured list with elbow inflammation ahead of a big series against the Brewers. Kimbrel hasn't pitched since allowing a three-run home run to Milwaukee's Christian Yelich in a 4-0 loss Sunday.

     TENNIS-US OPEN

     NEW YORK (AP) - Serena Williams is once again on the verge of her record-tying 24th Grand Slam title. The eighth-seeded Williams rolled to a 6-3, 6-1 win over fifth seed Elina Svitolina to advance to the U.S. Open final.

     Williams pulled out a 12-point game while serving to start the match and then broke on the 18th point of the second game en route to a 3-0 lead. The second set got away from Svitolina when Williams broke in the second game.
     The 37-year-old Williams is seeking her seventh U.S. Open crown, but she has dropped her last three Grand Slam finals.

     No. 15 Bianca Andreescu is Williams' next opponent after reaching her first major title match in only her fourth appearance at a Slam. The Canadian ousted No. 13 Belinda Bencic of Switzerland, 7-6, 7-5 to become the first player to get this far in her debut in New York since Venus Williams was the runner-up in 1997.
