    UND DONATION

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A major donor to the University of North Dakota who had threatened to withhold donations over a dispute with the former president has agreed to a 10-year contract extension with the school to operate the team's hockey arena. School and Ralph Engelstad Arena officials announced today that the deal will run through September of 2030. Terms were not announced.
 
     Engelstad Foundation trustee Kris McGarry, whose late father donated money for the $110 million arena, was at odds with previous president Mark Kennedy over the arena usage agreement, among others things. Kennedy was named president at the University of Colorado in May. McGarry said in a release that she appreciated interim President Joshua Wynne's "leadership on this issue."
 
     The foundation recently donated $4 million for a $6 million hockey scoreboard.

    MINNESOTA TWINS

    MINNEAPOLIS - The Minesota Twins look to bounce back from a tough loss as they host the Chicago White Sox in game two of a three game series at Target Field tonight. Jose Abreu hit a towering three-run homer in Chicago's four-run second inning to propel the White Sox to a 6-4 win last night. Minnesota had won 11 of the previous 14 meetings with Chicago.

    Michael Pineda (8-5, 4.20 ERA) will make his second start for the Twins since coming off the injured list after being sidelined by a right triceps strain. Pineda gave up three runs in five innings last week against Texas.

    Reynaldo Lopez (7-10, 5.29 ERA) will start for the White Sox, looking to keep his strong run intact. Lopez owns a 2.91 ERA (14 earned runs in 43 1/3 innings) in seven starts since the All-Star break.

    Minnesota hold a two game lead over Cleveland in the American League Central entering play tonight. The Indians were off yesterday and begin a three game series against the Mets in New York tonight.

     MLB-INDIANS-KLUBER

     CLEVELAND (AP) - Indians ace Corey Kluber has been shut down for two weeks with an abdominal strain, an injury he sustained during his comeback from a broken arm. Kluber was pulled from a minor league start for Triple-A Columbus at Charlotte on Sunday after one inning because of abdominal tightness. He returned to Cleveland and the team said imaging tests confirmed the strain.
 
     The Indians said today the two-time Cy Young winner will not throw for two weeks before he's re-examined and a plan is formulated. The right-hander hopes to make an impact in Cleveland's playoff push.
 
     Kluber hasn't pitched for the three-time defending AL Central champions since May 1. He was struck by a line drive at Miami and fractured his ulna. Kluber went 20-7 during the regular season in 2018, but he struggled in the playoffs for the second straight year.

     MLB-BRAVES-WEBB

     ATLANTA (AP) - Braves reliever Jacob Webb is likely done for the season after being placed on the 60-day injured list with an ailing right elbow.

     The 26-year-old Webb had been one of the most effective pitchers in Atlanta's shaky bullpen, with a 4-0 record, two saves and a 1.39 ERA in 36 appearances. But he had not pitched in the big leagues since going on the 10-day IL with an elbow impingement July 13.

     Webb began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Gwinnett on July 31 but struggled in 10 appearances, posting a 6.97 ERA.

     He was recalled from Gwinnett and shifted to the 60-day IL to make room on the 40-man roster for outfielder Billy Hamilton, who was claimed off waivers Monday from Kansas City.

     NFL-RAIDERS-BROWN

     ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - Star receiver Antonio Brown was back on the field for the Oakland Raiders today after missing the previous practice as part of his dispute with the league and union over his helmet.

     Brown took part in a walkthrough without wearing a helmet and then went into the weight room as the rest of his teammates stretched. Brown came back out toward the end of the stretch but wasn't wearing a helmet like all of his teammates who were practicing. The Raiders then held a brief practice out of view of the media.

     Brown didn't attend practice Sunday as he works to find a helmet that he's comfortable using and that meets safety standards set by the NFL and NFLPA.
