    FARGO, ND - Bismarck High's Ryan Blees is now a two-time USA Wrestling Junior Nationals freestyle champion.  Last summer he had to dig out of a huge hole in the championship match to win at 152. On Saturday, he captured the 160-pound title in a match with Michigan wrestler Logan Massa that went down to the final seconds.

    Massa and Blees were tied 2-2 in the closing seconds with Blees holding the tiebreaker advantage. Blees was credited with a takedown with three seconds remaining and Massa's corner exercised its right to review the call. The takedown was upheld and Massa lost a point for a failed review. That made Blees a 5-2 winner.

    Blees becames the first Bismarck wrestler to win back-to-back Junior National championships.

    MIAMI, FL - The Miami Dolphins have cut former North Dakota State quarterback Brock Jensen.  Jensen, who led the Bison to three straight Football Championship Subdivision titles, was released on Monday.  Miami filled Jensen's spot on the roster by unsigning undrafted rookie quarterback Seth Lobaro from Northern Colorado.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The University of North Dakota has a full-time national anthem singer for its men's hockey games at the Ralph Engelstad Arena.  The school says entertainer and motivational speaker Mark J. Lindquist will perform at all UND home games.
 
     The Ortonville, Minnesota, native travels the country performing the anthem for collegiate and professional sports teams. He sang at the College World Series earlier this summer and will be performing for the Los Angeles Dodgers in August.
 
     Lindquist is an actor who has appeared in ABC's "Lost," CBS' "Hawaii Five-O" and the Universal Studios movie "Battleship." He currently lives in Fargo, where he co-founded the company Breath Is Limited Motivational Speaking.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves and free-agent guard Mo Williams have agreed to a one-year deal worth $3.75 million.  Williams' agency, Priority Sports, announced the agreement on Monday. Williams is coming off an up-and-down season with the Portland Trail Blazers, but the Timberwolves see the veteran combo guard as an ideal pairing with rookie Zach LaVine on the team's second unit.
 
     Williams averaged 9.7 points last season for his lowest total since his rookie year in 2003-04. He turns 32 in December and gives the Wolves some much-needed experience behind starting guards Ricky Rubio and Kevin Martin.
 
     The agreement also could mean veteran J.J. Barea is on his way out. Barea is entering the final year of his contract.

     UNDATED (AP) - A six-run cushion wasn't enough for the Washington Nationals on Monday as they watched their lead in the NL East shrivel to a half-game over Atlanta.  

    Miami completed its comeback by scoring four times in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Nats 7-6. Adeiny Hechavarria tripled home the tying run and scored on Jeff Baker's two-out, walkoff single to push the Marlins to their fifth straight win.  The Marlins picked up their fifth straight win by scoring seven times over the last three innings after the Nationals built a 6-0 lead. Washington had been 30-1 when scoring at least six runs this season.
 
     The Braves cut their deficit with a 2-0 shutout of San Diego. Ervin Santana tied a career high with 11 strikeouts while scattering five hits in eight innings. Evan Gattis snapped a scoreless tie in the seventh with his first homer in more than a month before adding an RBI single in Atlanta's third straight win.
 
     Elsewhere in the majors:
 
     - Milwaukee's lead in the NL Central is down to 1  1/2 games over St. Louis after Jake Odorizzi allowed three hits in seven innings of Tampa Bay's 2-1 win over the Brewers. Troy Loney hit a two-run single in the sixth to send the Rays to their 10th victory in 11 games.
 
     - Pittsburgh is within two games of Milwaukee after Vance Worley fired his first career shutout in the Pirates' 5-0 shutout of San Francisco. Worley gave up just four hits and helped the Bucs drop the Giants two games behind the NL West-leading Dodgers.
 
     - Jason Castro, Marc Krauss and Matt Dominguez all homered in the sixth inning of Houston's 7-3 triumph against Oakland, which cuts the Athletics' lead in the AL West to 1  1/2 games over the Angels. Chris Carter opened the Astros' power assault with a three-run blast in the third and scored on Castro's tiebreaking, two-run shot.
 
     - Melky Cabrera homered from both sides of the plate and had five RBIs, while Ryan Goins went 4-for-5 with four ribbies in Toronto's 14-1 laugher at Boston. R.A. Dickey pitched the Blue Jays to their third straight win, yielding just a run and three hits while striking out 10 in seven innings.
 
     - J.P. Arencibia hit a tiebreaking, two-run single while Texas scored four times in the fifth inning of a 4-2 comeback win over the New York Yankees. Yu Darvish worked seven innings and improved to 10-6 despite giving up a pair of solo homers by Brett Gardner.
 
     - Arizona outlasted Cincinnati 2-1 on Nick Ahmed's RBI single in the 15th inning. The Reds are a game under .500 at 52-53 following their ninth loss in 10 games.
 
     - Travis d'Arnaud was 3-for-4 with a three-run homer and two runs scored as the New York Mets thumped Philadelphia 7-1. Juan Lagares added two hits and two RBIs to back Bartolo Colon, who surrendered 10 hits but just one run over 7 2/3 innings.
 
     - The Cubs were 4-1 winners against Colorado as Tsuyoshi Wada allowed five hits in seven innings for his first major league victory. Anthony Rizzo drove in two runs and Emilio Bonifacio scored twice for Chicago.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers have a little more infield depth following their deal with the Chicago Cubs.  The Cubs have shipped second baseman Darwin Barney and cash to the Dodgers for a player to be named. The move comes six days after he was designated for assignment by the Cubbies.
 
     Barney won a Gold Glove in 2012 after tying the major league single-season record with 141 consecutive errorless games. But he hit just .230 with 16 RBIs in 72 games this year.
 
     Also in the majors on Monday:
 
     - The Toronto Blue Jays have traded right-hander Liam Hendriks and catcher Erik Kratz to Kansas City for infielder Danny Valencia. The 29-year-old Valencia hit .282 with two home runs and 11 RBIs in 36 games for the Royals.
 
     - Tampa Bay has reinstated reliever Joel Peralta from the 15-day disabled list and designated left-hander Erik Bedard for assignment. Peralta went 2-3 with a 4.15 ERA before missing nine games with an illness. Bedard was 4-6 with a 4.76 ERA in 17 games, including 15 starts.
 
     - The Oakland Athletics have put outfielder Craig Gentry on the 15-day disabled list because of a broken right hand suffered when he was hit by a pitch Sunday in Texas. The A's filled the roster spot by promoting outfielder Billy Burns from Double-A Midland.

     SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - An MRI shows that Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin has a bruise on his left knee.  The first-round draft pick will miss a few days of camp.  Benjamin bumped knees with another player during practice Sunday.  Benjamin has been working with the starters and is having an outstanding camp. The Former Florida State standout was the 28th player taken in the draft.
 
     In other NFL training camp news:
 
     - The Detroit Lions are postponing contract talks with All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh until after the season. Suh becomes a free agent after the season, and the Lions could still keep him by using their franchise tag on him. Suh has 27 1/2 sacks since being taken by the Lions with the second overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft.
 
     - Kyle Rudolph signed a new five-year contract extension to match the significant value the Minnesota Vikings tight end has provided their offense. Rudolph has 1,055 yards and 15 touchdowns over his three-year NFL career.
 
     - Broncos top receiver Demaryius Thomas has returned from bereavement leave but missed practice Monday morning because his flight from Georgia didn't get back in time for him to participate in the workout.  Thomas missed the first five days of training camp for the AFC champs following the death last week of his grandmother in Georgia. He was back in time for the evening walk-through.
 
     - Jacksonville Jaguars guard Zane Beadles has pledged $750,000 to Utah's football program, the largest gift given to the school by a former player. Beadles signed a five-year, $30 million free-agent contract in March.
