     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - University of North Dakota football coach Bubba Schweigert has named sophomore Joe Mollberg starting quarterback to begin the season.  Mollberg will be behind center when UND takes on San Jose State in its season opener on Aug. 28.
 
     Schweigert cited Mollberg's knowledge of the offense and his performance in fall camp.  Mollberg started seven games as a redshirt freshman in 2013 and battled for the starting position with classmate Ryan Bartels.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Hours after being named the WNBA's most valuable player, Maya Moore scored 24 points to help the defending champion Minnesota Lynx beat the San Antonio Stars 88-84 Thursday night in the opener of the Western Conference semifinals.
 
     Down by 15 points with 9 minutes remaining, the Stars went on an 18-2 run to take a 73-73 lead with 4:12 to play. However, Seimone Augustus scored six of her 16 points in the final 2:11 as Minnesota pulled out the win.  
 
     Kayla McBride scored 21 points to lead the Stars. Becky Hammon scored 14 of her 17 in the second half, including a spinning shot with 1.9 seconds left that pulled the Stars within two.  However, Moore made two free throws with 1.3 seconds left and the Lynx beat the Stars for the 18th time in 21 meetings.
 
    Game 2 of the best-of-3 series is at San Antonio on Saturday night.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have secured the final piece they were looking for in a blockbuster Kevin Love trade.  A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that the Timberwolves will receive Philadelphia 76ers power forward Thaddeus Young as part of the deal that will send Love to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The person requested anonymity because an official announcement has not been made.
 
     The Wolves agreed weeks ago to send Love to team up with LeBron James in Cleveland. The Wolves will also get Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett in the deal, which cannot be completed until Saturday, 30 days after Wiggins signed his rookie contract.
 
     The Sixers will get Alexey Shved and Luc Mbah a Moute from Minnesota and a 2015 first-round draft choice from Cleveland.

     KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that Chiefs linebacker, and former NDSU standout, Joe Mays will have surgery on his wrist after hurting it in a preseason game against Carolina and could miss the start of the season.
 
     The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because the team had not disclosed the surgery, which is expected to take place later this week.  The Chiefs play the Vikings in their third preseason game Saturday night.
 
     Mays signed a $6 million, two-year contract with the Chiefs in the offseason, and he was expected to start alongside Derrick Johnson at inside linebacker. Known for his ability to stuff the run, Mays had been having a productive training camp with the Chiefs.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Kennys Vargas homered and sparked rallies with two other hits, leading the Minnesota Twins past Corey Kluber and the Cleveland Indians 4-1 Thursday.  Kluber had his winning streak stopped at six, despite eight strikeouts over seven innings.
 
     Phil Hughes struck out eight over seven innings to forge a four-way tie for the American League lead in victories, with Rick Porcello, Max Scherzer and Scott Kazmir.
 
     Trevor Plouffe put the Twins back in front with a two-run double in the sixth.
 
     Rookie Zach Walters homered for the third straight game for the Indians, who missed out on their first sweep of a road series this season and fell six games behind Kansas City in the AL Central.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - The Washington Nationals matched their longest winning streak since they moved from Montreal in 2005 by winning their 10th straight, 1-0 over Arizona. Denard Span scored on a throwing error in the bottom of the ninth for the lone run. That's the Nationals' fifth walkoff victory in their last six games.
 
     Closer Rafael Soriano pitched a scoreless ninth for the win -- he's 4-1. The Nats swept a three-game series against the New York Mets and Pittsburgh Pirates before winning all four games against the D-Backs.
 
     Kansas City is the only other team to win 10 in a row this year.
 
     In other baseball:
 
     - After two days, the first upheld protest in nearly 30 years and another rain storm in Chicago, the Cubs finally completed a 2-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants in a suspended game. Anthony Rizzo's two-run homer Tuesday held up as the team's played the final 4 1/2 innings of a game the Cubs thought they had won 2-0 two nights ago when a short rainstorm caused a delay of more than 4 1/2 hours after the grounds crew struggled with the tarp. The umpires said the field was unplayable and called it at 1:16 a.m. But the Giants protested, and Major League Baseball ruled that the tarp had not been properly put away after its previous use. The game was suspended. The Giants won the nightcap, 5-3. Buster Posey went 4-for-4 with a home run.
 
     - The L.A. Dodgers nipped San Diego 2-1. Clayton Kershaw improved to 15-3 by outpitching Tyson Ross. Justin Turner's two-run home run in the eighth was all the offense that Kershaw needed. Kershaw struck out 10 in allowing three hits in eight innings.
 
     - The L.A. Angels blanked Boston 2-0 behind a superb pitching effort from Matt Shoemaker, who combined with two relievers on a one-hitter. He lost his bid for a no-hitter with two outs in the seventh inning on a double by Will Middlebrooks of the Boston Red Sox. Shoemaker is 12-4, striking out nine in his seven and two-thirds innings. The Angels increased their lead in the AL West to two games over idle Oakland.
 
     - There was a real pitcher's duel in St. Petersburg, Florida, where the Rays beat the Tigers 1-0. Alex Cobb of the Rays went seven innings, allowing two hits while striking out six. Loser David Price, who was traded by the Rays to the Tigers last month, went the distance giving up just one hit, a run scoring triple by Brandon Guyer. Price had nine strikeouts. The Tigers had won the first two games of the three-game series.
 
     - The Yankees avoided a three-game sweep at the hands of the Houston Astros with a 3-0 win. Brandon McCarthy pitched a four-hitter for the Yankees, who have won just three of their last 10 games. The Yankees had been shut out in McCarthy's previous two starts.
 
     - Atlanta blanked Cincinnati 8-0, handing the Reds their sixth straight loss. Julio Teheran went six innings and combined with two relievers on a five-hitter. Justin Upton extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a bases-loaded single in a five-run third inning.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - The Los Angeles Angels are going to be without Garrett Richards for their playoff run.  One of the AL West leader's top starters sustained a serious knee injury, tearing his left patellar tendon Wednesday against the Boston Red Sox. He's scheduled for surgery next week.
 
     Richards was 13-4 with a 2.61 ERA this year. It's a serious blow to the Angels, who also lost starter Tyler Skaggs to Tommy John surgery earlier this season.  Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto says "we'll be open" about finding a deal to replace Richards in the rotation.
 
     In other baseball news:
 
     - The Los Angeles Angels have acquired second baseman Gordon Beckham in a trade with the Chicago White Sox. Beckham has struggled offensively hitting just .221 this year, but he gives the AL West-leading Angels another sure-handed infielder with six seasons of major league experience. He turns 28 on Sept. 16.
