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

Due to rain on Sunday the remainder of the College World Series Tournament in Omaha, Nebraska was cancelled....

    MINOT, ND - Due to rain on Sunday the remainder of the College World Series Tournament in Omaha, Nebraska was cancelled. Fargo Post 2 finshed with a 5-0 record at the tournament.  They had been scheduled to play Millard North of Nebraska in a semifinal game yesterday morning. Fargo Post 2 has won the North Dakota Class AA Legion Baseball title three of the last four years.



    CASPER, WY - The Souris Valley Sabre Dogs were swept by the Casper Horseheads yesterday in Caspter, Wyoming. The Horseheads won 7-5 on Sunday to take all three games in the series. The Sabre Dogs have the day off before beginning a three-game set against Wheat City on Tuesday at Corbett Field.



     KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Hunter Dozier hit a three-run shot during a five-run third inning, Homer Bailey was stingy again pitching into the sixth and the Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 6-1 on Sunday.
     Alex Gordon had two RBIs and Nicky Lopez also drove in a run, helping the Royals forge a split of the four-game series on a soggy, overcast afternoon at Kauffman Stadium.
     Bailey (7-6) only made one significant mistake, leaving a pitch over the plate that Eddie Rosario steered inside the right-field foul pole. Otherwise, the revitalized right-hander followed back-to-back scoreless starts against Detroit and Seattle by giving up five hits and a walk against the Twins.
     The Royals' bullpen went the rest of the way, leaving the bases loaded in the seventh. Kevin McCarthy got seven outs to record his first career save.
     Michael Pineda (4-4) allowed eight hits in five innings for the Twins. He didn't get much support, watching helplessly as his offense stranded 11 runners on base.
     With rain in the forecast, Bailey and Pineda engaged in a tidy pitchers' duel through the first couple innings. But that ended abruptly when Pineda took the mound in the third.
     After retiring Martin Maldonado, the big right-hander gave up a base hit to Billy Hamilton - the first of what would become five straight. And they came in quite the variety: Whit Merrifield delivered on a hit-and-run, Lopez had a bunt single and Gordon doubled down the right-field line.
     The big blow came from Dozier, though. His three-run shot soared over the visiting bullpen in left field, giving Kansas City a 5-0 lead and the youngster another boost in his All-Star bid.
     Dozier is among the three AL finalists at third base in voting that begins Wednesday.
     Bailey's streak of 16 2/3 scoreless innings finally ended when Rosario cracked his 20th homer of the year leading off the fourth inning. But Bailey got a modicum of revenge in the sixth, when he struck out Rosario after a 14-pitch at-bat to conclude his afternoon.
     The Twins' Jorge Polanco extended his 36-game on-base streak with a single in the seventh. That is tied for fifth-longest in club history. ... Luis Arraez had his first four-hit game for Minnesota.
     The Royals wore uniforms of the 1942 Kansas City Monarchs and the Twins dressed as the St. Paul Gophers from 1908 for their throwback day at the K. It was also "Dressed to the Nines" day at the park, and many fans came dressed in suits, dresses and vintage clothing.
     Twins OF Byron Buxton hit before the game to test his right wrist, and manager Rocco Baldelli said it's possible he could play Tuesday. "We have to make sure he's 100 percent before we activate him for a game," Baldelli said. "We're very close to making a decision." ... RHP Jose Berrios should make his next start despite leaving Saturday's game with a blister, Baldelli said.
     UP NEXT
     The Twins are off Monday before starting a three-game set against Tampa Bay.

     VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and union chief Don Fehr are in favor of rebooting the World Cup of Hockey tournament and holding it every four years.

Fehr prefers to have both the World Cup and Olympics on the calendar. Bettman is on board when it comes to the World Cup but he's not committing to the NHL returning to the Winter Games.
