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 Souris Valley Sabre Dogs tallied their second consecutive win, sweeping their two-game series with the Hub City Hotshots at Corbett Field. The Dogs scored a 6-0 win in a game that was called after seven innings due to weather. Jace Mapston pitched a complete game shutout giving up four hits, no walks and striking out six. The Sabre Dogs begin their last series of the regular season with the first of four against Pierre tonight at Corbett Field.



     MIAMI (AP) - Jose Berrios struck out a season-high 11 in seven innings and the Minnesota Twins hit three homers in a 7-4 win over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday night.
     Max Kepler hit his 29th homer of the season, Mitch Garver added a three-run shot and Eddie Rosario had a two-run home run as the Twins won for the fifth time in six games. Minnesota leads the majors with 209 home runs, 16 shy of the club record set in 1963. It was the 32nd time this season the Twins hit at least three homers in a game.
     Berrios (10-5) retired the first 12 batters he faced, including six on strikeouts, before Neil Walker led off the fifth inning with a dribbler down the third-base line. Starlin Castro followed with a base hit to center. The 25-year-old right-hander settled in and retired the next nine batters before being lifted with a big lead. He allowed just two hits and didn't walk a batter while lowering his ERA to 2.80.
     Miami's Brian Anderson hit a grand slam in the ninth inning to cut the Marlins' deficit to 7-4.
     Taylor Rogers came on to strike out the final two batters, earning his 17th save in 22 chances.
     Garver's three-run homer, his 20th, gave the Twins a 3-0 lead in the third.
     The Twins added four runs on five hits in the fifth inning. Kepler led off with a homer. After Garver singled, Rosario connected for a two-run homer to right field. Marwin Gonzalez doubled to give Minnesota a 7-0 lead.
     Anderson's slam, his second of the season, came off Sean Poppen after the Marlins opened the inning with three straight singles.
     Marlins starter Sandy Alcantara (4-10) allowed seven runs in 4 2/3 innings.
     UP NEXT
     Twins: RHP Michael Pineda (7-5, 4.30 ERA) will pitch today's series finale, looking to stay hot with a 3-2 record and 2.87 ERA over his last eight starts.
     Marlins: RHP Jordan Yamamoto (4-2, 3.64) allowed a career-high six runs on two hits over four innings in a loss against Arizona.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins will rely on a largely familiar roster for the stretch run with the exception of a couple of potentially valuable additions to the bullpen. Four days after acquiring Sergio Romo, the Twins got another veteran right-handed reliever in Sam Dyson with a deadline-beating deal with San Francisco. The Twins sent three minor leaguers to the Giants.



     UNDATED (AP) - The Chicago Cubs have regained a share of first place in the National League Central by blanking the co-leaders. Kyle Hendricks worked seven innings and Ian Happ singled home the tiebreaking run in the sixth as the Cubs downed the Cardinals, 2-0 in St. Louis. Hendricks scattered seven hits and had seven strikeouts while improving to 8-0 in his last 11 starts against the Cardinals. Chicago has won all 11 of those games.

     Both runs were aided by errors. Kris Bryant reached on an error by third baseman Tommy Edman before scoring the lead run. Javier Baez scored from second on a miscue by catcher Matt Wieters on a pickoff attempt two innings later.

     St. Louis failed to score despite leadoff doubles in the second, third and fourth innings. Paul Goldschmidt doubled twice for the Redbirds after homering in seven of their previous eight games.

     The Brewers remain one game off the NL Central lead after Jordan Lyles allowed one run and three hits over five innings of a 4-2 win at Oakland. Lyles picked up his first victory in more than two months, doing it in his Milwaukee debut following his trade from Pittsburgh earlier this week. Lorenzo Cain hit a leadoff homer and Christian Yelich added an RBI double to extend his hitting streak to 18 games, matching a career high.

     Elsewhere on major league diamonds:

     - The Braves squandered a 4-2 lead in the ninth before Josh Donaldson's 25th home run of the season gave them a 5-4, 10-inning win over the Nats. Adam Duvall homered for the fourth time in five games for Atlanta, which moved 6 1/2 games ahead of the second-place Nationals in the NL East. Mike Soroka limited Washington to three hits over seven innings, including Juan Soto's round-tripper.

     - Will Smith and Kristopher Negron homered while the Dodgers were scoring five runs in the ninth to beat the Rockies, 5-1 in Colorado. The game was scoreless until Smith unloaded a three-run blast, two batters before Negron delivered a two-run shot in the Dodgers' major league-leading 71st victory. Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu lowered his ERA to 1.66 by holding the Rockies to three hits over six shutout innings.

     - Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval and Kevin Pillar homered in a five-run fifth that carried the Giants past the Phillies, 5-1. Jeff Samardzija tossed three-hit ball over six innings, saving a bullpen that was missing three relievers following a string of deadline trades. San Francisco finished a major league-best 19-6 in July to move back into wild-card contention.

     - The Mets extended their season-high winning streak to six games by scoring three runs in the ninth following an error by shortstop Tim Anderson to beat the White Sox, 4-2. Todd Frazier singled home the tiebreaking run and scored on Michael Conforto's two-run single. Jacob de Grom's shutout streak ended at 19 innings, but he also struck out 10 over seven frames as New York won for the 12th time in its last 16 games.

     - Luis Castillo is 10-4 after yielding a run and six hits while working into the seventh inning of the Reds' 4-1 verdict over the Pirates. Jesse Winker and Eugenio Suarez homered off rookie Dario Agrazal, who lasted only 3 2/3 innings. The Pirates have gone 3-16 since the All-Star break.

     - Jose Berrios struck out a season-high 11 while allowing only two hits over seven shutout innings of the Twins' 7-4 win at Miami. Max Kepler hit his 29th homer of the season, Mitch Garver added a three-run shot and Eddie Rosario had a two-run home run as the Twins won for the fifth time in six games. Minnesota leads the majors with 209 home runs, 16 shy of the club record set in 1963.

     - The Indians stayed within three games of the AL Central-leading Twins as Roberto Perez belted a three-run homer and a solo shot in Cleveland's 10-4 drubbing of the Astros. Carlos Santana and Jason Kipnis both hit three-run shots as the Indians improved to 34-14 since June 4, when they trailed Minnesota by 10 1/2 games. Zach Plesac won his third straight start despite yielding four runs and six hits over five innings.

     - Austin Romine belted a go-ahead, two-run homer in the seventh inning to give the Yankees a 7-5 win over the Diamondbacks. Mike Tauchman smacked a two-run blast in the second off Zack Greinke, who worked the first five innings before being traded to the Astros. Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka was charged with three runs over four-plus innings, one start after surrendering 12 runs over 3 1/3 innings against Boston.

     - Kevin Kiermaier, Austin Meadows and Willy Adames homered for the Rays in an 8-5 victory over the Red Sox. Kiermaier homered on the first pitch he saw after coming off the injured list. Meadows added a three-run shot in Tampa Bay's fifth win in six games since a 1-7 skid dropped them behind Boston for second place in the AL East.

     - All-Star lefty Mike Minor won for the first time in more than a month, helping the Rangers get a 9-7 decision over the Mariners. Minor trailed 5-3 when he left the mound after the top of the fifth, but Willie Calhoun's three-run homer in the bottom half put the Rangers in front. Austin Nola and Keon Broxton homered for the Mariners, whose six-game winning streak came to an end.

     - The Blue Jays completed a three-game sweep of the Royals as Freddy Galvis (GAL'-vees) and rookie Bo Bichette hit solo home runs in Toronto's 4-1 victory. Bichette hit his first career homer to open the eighth inning against Royals starter Jakob Junis. Rookie Jacob Waguespack earned his second victory in his fourth big league start, limiting the Royals to a run and three hits over six frames.

     - Homers by Jake Rogers, Brandon Dixon and Gordon Beckham powered the Tigers past the Angels, 9-1. Rogers banged out his first big league round-tripper, and Dixon and Beckham homered during a five-run eighth off Luis Garcia. Daniel Norris had gone 14 starts without a win before holding Los Angeles to three hits over five innings.



     UNDATED (AP) - The Astros have added a six-time All-Star to their already-solid starting rotation. Houston has picked up Zack Greinke for a starting five that includes 14-game winner Justin Verlander and major league strikeout leader Gerrit Cole. The Diamondbacks have received four minor leaguers for Greinke, who took the mound for Wednesday's game against the Yankees. Greinke is 10-4 with a 2.90 ERA this season.

     Also at the major league trade deadline:

     - The Indians have confirmed their three-team swap that sends pitcher Trevor Bauer to Cincinnati and brings Yasiel Puig to Cleveland. The Indians also got lefty Scott Moss from the Reds and outfielder Franmil Reyes, lefty Logan Allen and infield prospect Victor Nova from San Diego. The Padres acquired outfielder Taylor Trammel from the Reds.

     - Atlanta picked up relievers Shane Greene and Mark Melancon in separate deals, along with backup catcher John Ryan Murphy. The Giants got right-handed reliever Daniel Winkler and a minor league pitcher for Melancon, and the Tigers received two minor leaguers in the Greene swap.

     - The Diamondbacks have acquired right-hander Mike Leake from the Mariners for a minor leaguer. Arizona also picked up rookie right-hander Zac Gallen from the Marlins for minor league shortstop Jazz Chisholm.

     - The Athletics have acquired starter Tanner Roark from the Reds for outfield prospect Jameson Hannah.

     - Milwaukee has acquired left-hander Drew Pomeranz and righty Ray Black from the Giants for infield prospect Mauricio Dubon. San Francisco also obtained second baseman Scooter Gennett from the Reds for a player to be named.

     - The Cubs have obtained outfielder Nicholas Castellanos from the Tigers for two minor league pitchers.

     - The Phillies have grabbed outfielder Corey Dickerson from the Pirates for a player to be named later and $250,000 in international signing money.

     - The Nationals came away with relievers Roenis Elias and Hunter Strickland from Seattle and Daniel Hudson in a trade with Toronto. The Mariners received a trio of minor league pitchers from the Nationals, who jettisoned right-hander Kyle Johnston to Toronto for Hudson.

     - The Dodgers added infielder Jedd Gyorko, acquiring him from the Cardinals for left-hander Tony Cingrani and minor league righty Jeffry Abreu (ah-BRAY'-oo). Los Angeles also picked up reliever Adam Kolarek from Tampa Bay

     - Martin Maldonado is on the move for the second time this month, going from the Cubs to the Astros for Tony Kemp. Houston also moved catcher Max Stassi to the Angels for a pair of minor league outfielders.

     - The Rangers have landed injured right-hander Nate Jones from the White Sox for minor league pitchers Joe Jarneski and Ray Castro.



     UNDATED (AP) - The New Orleans Saints have their top receiver back in the fold. The Saints and Michael Thomas have agreed to a five-year, $100 million contract, according to his agent. Thomas had missed five practices while holding out of training camp as his agent sought a long-term deal. Thomas has grabbed 321 passes for 3,787 yards and 23 touchdowns in his first three NFL seasons. He paced the NFL with 125 receptions in 2018.

     Also in the NFL

     - Bills starting center Mitch Morse is out indefinitely after being placed in the NFL's concussion protocol. Morse was Buffalo's key offseason free-agent addition in the team's bid to overhaul what had been a patchwork line. He signed a four-year, $44.5 million contract after spending his first four seasons in Kansas City.

     - The Minnesota Supreme Court has dismissed former Vikings defensive lineman Al Noga's claim that his dementia is related to concussions he suffered during his NFL career. In a unanimous decision, the high court threw out Noga's workers' compensation award. The court says the Vikings' treatment of Noga's headaches with over-the-counter medicines was sufficient and that his 2015 claim came too late. Noga played for the Vikings from 1988-1992.

     - Pro Football Hall of Fame middle linebacker Nick Buoniconti has died at age 78. Buoniconti was an undersized overachiever who helped lead the Miami Dolphins to the NFL's only perfect season. He later became a leader in the effort to cure paralysis following a spinal injury to his son, Marc. In recent years, Buoniconti struggled with symptoms of CTE, a degenerative brain disease associated with repeated blows to the head.



     MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The Memphis Grizzlies have signed guard Marko Guduric to a multi-year contract. The 24-year-old Guduric has played for Fenerbahce in Turkey the last two seasons. He averaged 9.4 points and shot 47.7 percent from 3-point range while leading Fenerbahce to the 2019 Euroleague Final Four.



     UNDATED (AP) - A couple of NHL teams are locking up their young defensemen for the next few years. The Colorado Avalanche have signed Samuel Girard to a seven-year extension. The 21-year-old Girard just completed his second season with the Avs, finishing with four goals and 27 points while playing in all 82 games. The New Jersey Devils have re-signed defenseman Will Butcher to a three-year, $11.2 million contract. Butcher had four goals and 30 points in 78 games last season.
