     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Bismarck Marathon has announced a new course for this year's race.  The course will return to the Missouri River area, with runners crossing both the Expressway and Memorial bridges and passing through Sertoma Park.
 
     Officials moved the course in 2011 due to Missouri River flooding. The past three years, the course has included a large hill on the south edge of Bismarck.  Planning committee member Dave Nash tells KXMB-TV that more than 1,000 runners have already registered for the September 20th marathon.

He also walked and was hit by a pitch.
 
     Paul Konerko and Alexei Ramirez delivered consecutive RBI singles in the eighth to give Chicago an 8-7 lead.

     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Wild have signed defenseman Justin Falk to a one-year, two-way contract.  Under the deal announced Friday, Falk will be paid his NHL salary only if he is on the NHL roster. If he is sent to the AHL, he will get a minor-league salary.

     UNDATED (AP)- A couple of weeks ago, the Milwaukee Brewers were hobbling into the All-Star break, watching a six-game lead disappear as the St. Louis Cardinals closed the gap. Now, the Brewers appear headed in the right direction.
 
     Wily Peralta won his 13th game to tie for the National League lead and Aramis Ramirez hit his 13th homer as the Brewers beat 13-game winner Adam Wainwright and the Cardinals, 7-4. The victory gives the Brewers a three-games ahead of the Cards in the NL Central.
 
     Jonathan Lucroy's bases-clearing double chased Wainwright in a four-run sixth inning that put Milwaukee up by six.  Matt Carpenter had two hits and three RBIs and Matt Holliday homered for St. Louis, which has lost three of four.
 
     Peralta, Wainwright and the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw all have 13 victories. Last year, the 25-year-old Peralta was 11-15 with a 4.37 ERA in his first full season in the majors.
 
     In other baseball:
 
     - Ryan Vogelsong hurled a two-hitter for his second career complete game, Hunter Pence drove in three runs and the San Francisco Giants beat the New York Mets 5-1 for their second straight win after a six-game skid. Vogelsong faced 28 batters, one over the limit, and improved to 6-8. Vogelsong allowed Juan Lagares' soft single leading off the sixth and Lucas' Duda's 20th homer to start the eighth.
 
     - The Kansas City Royals blanked AL West leader Oakland 1-0. The 42-year-old Raul Ibanez connected in the fifth inning for his fifth homer for all the scoring. Jeremy Guthrie and three relievers combined on a five-hitter.
 
     - Pittsburgh scored three in the eighth and five more in the ninth to beat Arizona 9-4.  Josh Harrison tripled, doubled and scored twice.
 
     - The Chicago Cubs routed Los Angeles starter Dan Haren for seven runs in four and a-third innings en route to routing the Dodgers 8-2. Luis Valbuena homered and drove in two.
 
     - Philadelphia has won the first two games of its set in Washington, beating the Nationals 2-1. Marlon Byrd's 21st home run broke a sixth-inning tie. The Nats have lost four of five but still lead the NL East.
 
     - Washington maintained its game and a-half lead because San Diego was routing Atlanta 10-1. The light-hitting Padres rapped out a season-high 20 hits. Padres first baseman Tommy Medica had a huge night by going 5-for-5 with two home runs and four RBIs.
 
     - Wei-Yin Chen won his fifth straight start and had a season-high eight strikeouts to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 2-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners.  Baltimore has won nine of its past 11 games and remained atop the AL League East.
 
     - Mike Trout and Josh Hamilton homered to help the Los Angeles Angels beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3. It was Trout's 26th homer, a two-run shot.
 
     - Gregorio Petit's first career home run put Houston on top in the eighth inning and the Astros held on for a 3-1 win over the Blue Jays. That ends Toronto's six-game winning streak.
 
     -  Anthony Ranaudo pitched six solid innings in his major league debut and Dustin Pedroia drove in two runs as the Boston Red Sox snapped a three-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory over the New York Yankees.  Ranaudo allowed two runs and four hits, including a Carlos Beltran solo home run.
 
     - Mat Latos pitched seven strong innings, Ryan Ludwick drove in two runs, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Miami Marlins 5-2.
 
     -  Justin Verlander equaled his longest outing of the season, pitching eight solid innings to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 4-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies. Verlander improved to 10-9.
 
     - Cleveland rapped out 16 hits in a 12-2 laugher over the last-place Texas Rangers. Danny Chisenhall cracked his 10th home run and scored a pair of runs. David Murphy was 4 for 4 with two RBIs against his former team.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Phillies have placed pitcher Cliff Lee on the 15-day disabled list with an elbow strain. The left-hander left in the third inning of Thursday night's win over Washington after suffering the injury. It's an apparent recurrence of the injury that put him on the disabled list in May. He's scheduled for an MRI and additional tests when the team returns to Philadelphia early next week.
 
     The 35-year-old Lee missed two months because of a strained left elbow, and was making his third start since coming off the disabled list. He's 4-5 with a 3.65 ERA.
 
     In other baseball DL moves:
 
     - San Francisco Giants right-hander Matt Cain needs surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow, an operation that likely will end his season. Cain has not pitched since July 9 and is 2-7 with a 4.18 ERA.
 
     - Miami All-Star pitcher Henderson Alvarez has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of inflammation in his right shoulder. The move was retroactive to Wednesday. Alvarez is 8-5 with three shutouts and a 2.48 ERA.
 
     - Tyler Skaggs is now on the Angels 15-day disabled list with a strained forearm. The left-hander was injured in Thursday's extra innings win over Baltimore. Skaggs had not allowed a hit when he left with two outs in the fifth inning.
