Joe Mauer is heading to Cooperstown. The former Twins catcher was voted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame yesterday. Mauer bypassed the 75-percent threshold by receiving just over 76-percent of votes in his first year on the ballot. The St. Paul native was selected by the Twins with the first overall pick in the 2001 MLB Draft. He spent his entire career with his home-town team. Mauer became the only American League catcher to win a batting title in 2006, and was the only catcher in MLB history to win three. He was a six-time All-Star, three-time Gold Glover, five-time Silver Slugger, and he won the American League MVP award in 2009. Mauer will be inducted into the Hall of Fame alongside Adrian Beltre, Todd Helton, and Jim Leyland in Cooperstown on July 21st.


The Wild are on a three-game winning streak following a 5-3 win over the Washington Capitals at the Xcel Energy Center. Brock Faber and Marcus Foligno both scored in the first period, and Marcus Johansson gave the Wild a 3-0 lead with a goal early in the second period. Washington added a goal before the third, but Johansson and Joel Eriksson Ek put the game away with goals in the final frame. The Wild have 47 points and a 21-21-and-5 record. Minnesota hosts Nashville tomorrow night.


The Timberwolves will try to get back in the win column when they visit the Washington Wizards at Capital One Arena tonight. The Wolves are coming off a disastrous 128-125 loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Monday. Minnesota is tied for first place in the Western Conference at 30-and-13. Tonight's game tips off at 6:00PM.


The Bucks are reportedly looking for a new coach. Multiple reports say the team is firing first year coach Adrian Griffin. He was hired this past offseason after the team let go of Mike Budenholzer. The Bucks are currently tied for the second-best record in the NBA at 30-and-13. Before the season, the team added superstar Damian Lillard to pair with two-time NBA Most Valuable Player Giannis Antetokounmpo.


Meanwhile, the Bucks return to the hardwood tonight. The team tips off against the Cavaliers at Fiserv Forum. Milwaukee is coming off a convincing win over the lowly Pistons where Giannis Antetokounmpo led all scorers with 31 points and had 17 rebounds and 10 assists for a triple-double. Assistant coach Joe Prunty is expected to take over head coaching duties on an interim-basis.
