The Twins gave up five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning during a 7-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at American Family Field. The Twins led by one entering the frame, but they pulled starting pitcher Bailey Ober after throwing just 78 pitches, and Dylan Floro allowed five runs to get tagged with his sixth loss in relief. Christian Vazquez homered in the losing effort. The Twins have a five-game lead in the AL Central at 65-and-61. Kenta Maeda starts for Minnesota against Milwaukee today. Hear the broadcast on KWNG & WBHA at 12:30 pm, 1st pitch at 1:10 pm.
The Vikings welcome the Arizona Cardinals to TCO Performance Center. The two teams have the first of two joint practices with each other today. The Vikings also hosted two joint practices with the Tennessee Titans last week. Minnesota and Arizona will also practice against one another tomorrow, and they face off to finish off preseason on Saturday.
The Minnesota Lynx survived a late Dallas Wings rally to earn a 91-86 win at the Target Center. Minnesota led by 12 with under two-and-a-half minutes left in regulation, but Dallas got within one in the final 20 seconds. However, the Lynx went four-for-four from the free throw line to ice the game from there. Napheesa Collier poured in 29 points in the victory, while Kayla McBride added 21. Minnesota is tied four sixth-place in the WNBA at 16-and-17. The Lynx visit Dallas tomorrow night.
The Packers are back on the practice field. Bill Huber with SI.com shared his observations from yesterday's open training camp session and said Rashan Gary was terrific. The pass rusher took part in his first live action since suffering an ACL tear last November. He beat starting right tackle Zach Tom during one-on-one drills and got the better of him again during team drills. The Packers wrap up the preseason against the Seahawks at Lambeau Saturday afternoon.
