The Minnesota Twins blew a 3-0 lead against the San Francisco Giants during a 4-3 loss at Target Field. Byron Buxton and Michael A. Taylor both homered to put Minnesota up by three entering the sixth inning, but the Twins issued a pair of bases loaded walks to make it a one-run game. In the seventh, Michael Conforto hit a two-run home run to put San Francisco up for good. Jorge Lopez was charged with the loss in relief. The Twins remain in first place in the AL Central at 25-and-24. They send Joe Ryan to the mound against San Francisco this afternoon. In other club news, Minnesota placed Trevor Larnach on the ten-day injured list yesterday. Listen to the game on KWNG & WBHA pregame at 11:30 am, 1st pitch at 12:10 pm.


The Minnesota Vikings continued their optional team activities in Eagan yesterday. It was Minnesota's second voluntary practice session of the offseason. Wide receiver Justin Jefferson, running back Dalvin Cook, and edge rusher Danielle Hunter were among those absent from the workout. The Vikings have their next OTA session tomorrow. In other team news, Minnesota signed XFL star wide receiver Lucky Jackson and waived linebacker Kenny Willekes yesterday.


One of the leading rushers in NFL history claims that he still isn't retired. Adrian Peterson said that "mentally", he hasn't "officially hung it up." The 38-year-old running back has not played in the league since 2021, when he played a combined four games split between the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks. The four-time All-Pro that also spent time with the Vikings, Cardinals, Lions, Saints, and Washington and currently ranks fifth on the all-time rushing list with 14,918 yards. Peterson said that if no team signs him this season, he will be "hanging it up."


The Minnesota Lynx remain winless after an 83-77 loss to the Atlanta Dream at the Target Center. The Lynx blew a 19-point second-half lead and were outscored 24-10 in the fourth quarter. Napheesa Collier led Minnesota with 20 points in the losing effort. The Lynx fell to 0-and-2, and they visit Phoenix tomorrow night.


The Packers are continuing OTA workouts. Bill Huber with SI.com says day two was a "hot and cold" day for Jordan Love. The quarterback went one-for-four on his first series of plays, then two-of-five in a third-down drill in the red zone. He says Love improved later in practice, but ended 6-of-16 against a defense that lined up without starting cornerbacks Jaire Alexander and Rasul Douglas. Green Bay continues the voluntary workouts tomorrow.


Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers is dealing with a calf strain after suiting up for practice with the Jets. Rodgers was dragging a weighted sled and pulled up from a drill before he appeared to limp and stretch his leg. The future Hall of Famer didn't leave the field once he strained his calf muscle, and instead stayed to work with his teammates. He didn't throw a pass during practice, but says he's not too concerned about the strain.


The Brewers bounced back from a big game one loss and snapped the Astros eight-game win streak after a 6-0 victory in Milwaukee. Colin Rea got the win after surrendering just four hits over five-plus innings. Owen Miller crushed a two-run homer while Joey Wiemer also went yard. Brian Anderson went two-for-four with two RBI as Milwaukee improved to 26-and-22. The Brew Crew are first in the NL Central. The Brewers will try to win the series this afternoon. Adrian Houser gets the start opposite Brandon Bielak.
