The Twins took three of four from the White Sox following a 4-0 win in the series finale in Chicago. Sonny Gray earned his eighth win of the season after striking out six and giving up just five hits in seven scoreless frames. Edouard Julien hit a three-run home run to break a scoreless tie in the fifth, and Jorge Polanco added a solo shot in the eighth. The Twins have a seven game lead in the AL Central at 79-and-71, and their magic number is six. Joe Ryan starts for Minnesota against Cincinnati tonight. Hear the game on KWNG & WBHA at 5 pm with 1st pitch at 5:40 pm!


The Vikings will spend the week getting ready for a home game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Minnesota will have extra rest after playing their most recent game last Thursday. The Vikings spent their off-day yesterday watching all three of their divisional foes lose, meaning the Purple are just a game out of first place in the NFC North at 0-and-2. Sunday's game will kick off at noon.


The Minnesota Gophers suffered just their second non-conference loss under PJ Fleck on Saturday. Minnesota was defeated by number-17 North Carolina 31-13 at Kenan Stadium. The Gophers trailed 21-10 at the half, but they kicked a field goal early in the third to get within one possession. However, UNC ended the game with a 10-0 run. Darius Taylor ran for 138 yards and a touchdown, but Athan Kaliakmanis completed just 11 of his 29 passes for 133 yards and an interception. Minnesota fell to 2-and-1 overall. The Gophers visit Northwestern on Saturday. In other college football action over the weekend, St. Thomas lost to Harvard 45-13.


The Minnesota Lynx are still alive in the WNBA playoffs. The Lynx beat Connecticut 82-75 in Game Two of the First Round at Mohegan Sun Arena yesterday. Kayla McBride poured in 28 points, while Napheesa Collier scored 26 with 13 boards. The Lynx are tied with the Sun in the best-of-three series at a game apiece. The decisive Game Three tips off on Wednesday.


The Falcons piled on 13 points in the fourth quarter to secure a 25-24, comeback win over the Packers in Atlanta. Desmond Ridder scampered for a six-yard rushing score early in the fourth while Younghoe Koo nailed a pair of field goals including the 25-yard game winner with just 57 seconds left. Jordan Love completed 14-of-25 passes for three touchdowns and no picks for Green Bay while Jayden Reed hauled-in a pair of TD's. The Pack slipped to 1-and-1 on the season and will host the Saints next Sunday.


Wisconsin bounced back from a disappointing Week Two loss and crushed Georgia Southern 35-14 over the college football weekend. Tanner Mordecai completed 19-of-30 passes for 236 yards while Braelon Allen carried the ball 12 times for 94 yards and two touchdowns. The Badgers exploded for 21 points in the third quarter to seal the victory. Wisconsin is now 2-and-1 on the season heading into a Week Four showdown against Purdue in West Lafayette this Friday.


The Nationals salvaged their series with the Brewers following a 2-1, extra innings victory from Milwaukee. The game was tied at one run apiece in the top of the 11th until Joey Meneses powered a sacrifice fly which scored CJ Abrams. Robert Garcia shut down the Brew Crew in the bottom half of the frame to secure the victory. Carlos Santana drove in the lone run for Milwaukee, which slipped to 84-and-65. The Brewers are still first in the NL Central and will play the Cardinals in St. Louis tonight.
