TODAY'S THOUGHT

That little voice in your head telling you the situation is hopeless or that you're worthless is a fear-mongering liar. Listen to the voice of your Good Shepherd. He speaks grace and truth!

    TWINS-GARVER-DL

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have placed catcher Mitch Garver on the 10-day injured list with a sprained left ankle and returned third baseman Miguel Sano from his rehabilitation assignment.
 
     The Twins made the moves today before their game against the Los Angeles Angels, following Garver's injury the night before. He was diagnosed with a high sprain, which can take longer to heal than other varieties. Garver has had a breakout season, batting .329 with four doubles, nine home runs and 19 RBIs in 25 games. His OPS is 1.164.
 
     After suffering a severe cut on his right heel in January, Sano has finally been cleared for action. He played in 10 games on his rehab in the minors.

    MINNESOTA TWINS

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota reliever Mike Morin hit former teammate Mike Trout with a bases-loaded pitch that forced in a run in the ninth inning before retiring Shohei Ohtani to end the game on a groundout and preserve an 8-7 victory by the Twins over the Los Angeles Angels this afternoon.
 
     Jonathan Lucroy had an RBI double and David Fletcher drove in a run with a single against Trevor Hildenberger in the three-run ninth, before the Twins turned to Morin for the final two outs and his first save this season. Morin gave up two of the season-high 18 hits by the Angels and plunked Trout on the shoulder.
 
     Byron Buxton and Jason Castro each hit two-run homers and Ehire Adrianza added a two-run double for the Twins, who took the three-game set from the Angels and improved their series record this season to 8-4-2. They've won 10 of their last 15 games, and they're 24-6 when scoring four or more runs. The Twins have 76 home runs in 42 games, the third-most in the major leagues.
 
     Twins starter Jake Odorizzi (6-2) had his scoreless streak stopped at 22 innings when Tommy La Stella took him deep in the third for his team-leading 11th homer. Lucroy tacked on a two-run shot in the sixth, which Odorizzi did not finish for the first time in four starts. He gave up nine hits and three runs in 5 1/3 innings, but this Twins lineup that's suddenly stacked with sluggers produced more than enough support.
 
     Angels starter Trevor Cahill (2-4) bore the brunt of that, allowing six hits and six runs in 4 1/3 innings. He failed to finish the fifth for the fifth time in his last six turns, and the major league leader in home runs allowed has now been taken deep 14 times after the drive to left-center by Buxton in the fifth.
 
     Castro homered off Luke Bard, his sixth of the season and the most uplifting hit of the afternoon for the Twins given the injury to fellow catcher Mitch Garver . The Twins lead the major leagues with 17 home runs and 40 RBIs from the catching position.
 
     The Angels went 3 for 17 with runners in scoring position, leaving 14 men on base. Blake Parker, their closer last season, struck out Ohtani with two runners on to finish the eighth. Trevor May, who has stranded all 10 runners he's inherited this season, relieved Odorizzi and ended the sixth with a fly out by La Stella to leave two on.
 
     TRAINER'S ROOM
 
     Twins: DH Nelson Cruz was held out for the third straight game because of a sore left wrist, but manager Rocco Baldelli said he was available to play if needed. "He's feeling a lot better," Baldelli said.
 
     UP NEXT
 
     Twins: RHP Michael Pineda (2-3, 5.85 ERA) takes his turn on Thursday night in Seattle when the Twins start a four-game series against his original team the Mariners, who send RHP Erik Swanson (1-4, 6.35 ERA) to the mound.

     NBA PLAYOFFS-RAPTORS/BUCKS

     MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) - The top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks play host to the second-seeded Raptors in Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference finals. The two teams had the best records in the NBA this season - Milwaukee went 60-22, Toronto went 58-24 - and one of them will have home-court advantage for the NBA Finals starting May 30. Milwaukee hasn't been to the NBA Finals in 45 years, while Toronto has never been to the title round.

     There's a big-name superstar on either side: Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo and Toronto's Kawhi Leonard. The Bucks have a coach who wasn't there last year; the Raptors have a coach who wasn't in charge last year. Similarities abound between Milwaukee and Toronto. Over the next couple of weeks, one team will separate itself and reach the NBA Finals.

     NHL PLAYOFFS-SHARKS/BLUES

     ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Blues carry some momentum into Game 3 of their NHL Western Conference finals against the San Jose Sharks. The Blues evened the series at 1-1 with a 4-2 victory. The Blues got better play from their defense, including two goals and five points overall. After giving up numerous odd-man rushes in the opening loss to the Sharks, the Blues defense seems to have found its game, especially after the pairing switch midway through the second period in Game 2 on Monday night.

     The Blues are tied with San Jose with 38 points from defensemen in the playoffs, the most in the NHL. But, they'll need to improve a tepid power play if they want to reach their first Stanley Cup Final since 1970. The Blues have scored just once on a power play in their last 26 attempts and haven't found the back of the net with the man advantage in five games.

     NFL-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - The New York Jets have fired general manager Mike Maccagnan. Coach Adam Gase will serve as the acting GM in his place.

     The stunning decision by team chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson was announced in a statement posted Wednesday on the team's Twitter account. Johnson says he made the move after assessing what would be in the Jets' best interests.

     The timing is strange considering Maccagnan oversaw the Jets' draft less than three weeks ago, although there were rumors that he and Gase had some tension - which both denied. Maccagnan was hired as GM in 2015.

     In other NFL news:

     - The San Francisco 49ers have signed tight end Levine Toilolo to a one-year deal. The team waived safety Cameron Glenn to make room on the roster. Toilolo has ties to 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan. He was drafted by Atlanta in 2013 and spent five years with the Falcons. Shanahan was offensive coordinator there for two of those seasons. Toilolo played last season in Detroit, where he had 21 catches for 263 yards and one TD in 10 games.

     - One practice appears to be enough for Odell Beckham Jr. The star wide receiver was not at Cleveland's voluntary workout today after showing up Tuesday following a monthlong absence. Beckham, who was acquired by the Browns in a March trade from the New York Giants, had been in contact with the club while he was away and the team is comfortable with him leaving again.

     - Browns running back Kareem Hunt knows only his actions will help him outrun a violent past. Hunt spoke today for the first time since Cleveland signed him in February after he was released by the Kansas City Chiefs late last season when video surfaced of him shoving and kicking a woman during an argument. Hunt says he's changed and vowed to be "a better person."

     NHL-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - Ralph Krueger has officially been named the new coach of the Buffalo Sabres as the franchise seeks to return to the playoffs after an eight-year absence. The 59-year-old Krueger previously coached the Edmonton Oilers during the NHL's lockout-shortened season in 2012-13. Krueger also coached Switzerland's national team to Olympic appearances in 2002, 2006 and 2010. He's spent the past five years as chairman of soccer's Southampton FC of the English Premier League.

     In other hockey news:

     - With free agent Sergei Bobrovsky expected to depart, the Columbus Blue Jackets have locked in goaltender Elvis Merzlikins for next season. Columbus signed the 25-year-old Latvian to a one-year contract for 2019-20 Merzlikins is currently playing for Latvia at the world championships. He has been playing in the Swiss National League.

     - The home of the St. Louis Blues could receive $70 million in state subsidies over two decades to help pay for renovations. Legislation that received final approval today in the Missouri House authorizes funding for the Enterprise Center starting in the 2022 fiscal year. The legislation now goes to Gov. Mike Parson.

     NBA-MAGIC-BIRD AWARD

     NEW YORK (AP) - Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, whose coast-to-coast rivalry in the 1980s propelled the NBA to a new level of popularity, will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award. The league and Turner Sports announced today that the Hall of Famers and 1992 U.S. Olympic teammates will receive the award on June 24 at the NBA Awards.

     The honor comes on the 40th anniversary of their meeting in the 1979 NCAA
championship game, when Johnson's Michigan State team beat Bird's Indiana State squad. That is still the highest-rated game on television in college basketball history.

     ITALIAN OPEN

     ROME (AP) - Play at the Italian Open has been wiped out by rain, meaning Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will have to wait until Thursday to play their opening matches at the clay-court tournament. Federer was slated to meet Joao Sousa today, eight-time Rome champion Nadal was scheduled to play Jeremy Chardy and Djokovic was up against Denis Shapovalov. Also, top-ranked Naomi Osaka was to play Dominika Cibulkova.
