     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Three-time defending national champion North Dakota State is the No. 2 team in the Sports Network preseason Football Championship Subdivision poll.  Eastern Washington edged out the Bison to take the top spot.
 
     NDSU earlier took the top spot in the FCS preseason coaches' poll, with Eastern Washington second.  The rest of the Sports Network poll's top five is Southeast Louisiana, New Hampshire and Montana - the same three-through-five teams in the coaches' poll.
 
     NDSU and Eastern Washington will play in 2016 in Fargo and in 2017 in Cheney, Washington. Eastern Washington won the national title the year before NDSU started its three-year run.
 
     NDSU opens the season Aug. 30 at Iowa State, which plays in the upper Football Bowl Subdivision.  KHRT-AM 1320 will be the Minot area radio home for NDSU Bison football.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Matt Cassel led a crisp touchdown drive with Minnesota's first team offense, and the Vikings broke in their temporary new home stadium by beating the Oakland Raiders 10-6 in the exhibition opener on Friday night.
 
     Teddy Bridgewater relieved Cassel at quarterback after one series, and the rookie's first name was rhythmically chanted during his first two snaps by a crowd eager to see the first-round draft pick in action. Playing into the third quarter, Bridgewater's debut was mixed at best: 6 for 13 for 49 yards, two sacks and one fumble the Vikings recovered.
 
     Matt Schaub's first time in silver and black wasn't exactly smooth, either. The latest attempt by the Raiders to stop the quarterback carousel from spinning, Schaub finished 3 for 7 for 21 yards.

     OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Scott Kazmir faced the minimum through six innings before running into trouble, Coco Crisp hit a bases-loaded triple, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Minnesota Twins 6-5 on Friday night for their 11th straight win in the series.
 
     Oakland owns its longest unbeaten run against the Twins, whose last victory came at Target Field on Sept. 10, 2013. The A's are 5-0 this year.
 
     Kazmir (13-4) tossed just eight balls among his first 42 pitches through four perfect innings before Kennys Vargas broke up the bid with a single off shortstop Jed Lowrie's glove. Yet the A's turned a spectacular double play on a grounder by Kurt Suzuki to third two batters later.
 
     Kazmir was dominant deep into the game five days after being handed his first loss in six starts and allowing a season-high 10 hits in a Sunday loss to Kansas City.

     UNDATED (AP) - On a night in which the Orioles wore 1954 throwback uniforms to mark the 60th anniversary of their arrival in Baltimore, the team administered an old-fashioned whipping on the St. Louis Cardinals.  The Orioles swatted six home runs in their 12-2 laugher. The Orioles moved 17 games over .500 and maintained their five-game lead atop the AL East.
 
     J.J. Hardy hit two of the six. Hardy hit a solo shot and a three-run drive for his 11th multihomer game. Manny Machado, Adam Jones, Chris Davis and Ryan Flaherty also connected as Baltimore, which reached double figures in runs for the first time since April 24.
 
     The six homers came on a night when the Orioles were celebrating their 60th year in Baltimore with past sluggers Frank Robinson, Brooks Robinson, Eddie Murray, Boog Powell, Ken Singleton, Cal Ripken and Brady Anderson among those in attendance. By comparison, the Orioles' leading home run hitter during their inaugural 1954 season in Baltimore was Vern Stephens with eight.
 
     In other MLB action:
 
     - The New York Yankees scored five in the first and five more in the sixth and held off Cleveland 10-6. Carlos Beltran hit a grand slam and drove in five runs. Derek Jeter tied Honus Wagner with his 3,430th hit in a five-run first. The Yanks are five back of the Orioles.
 
     - The Athletics now own a four-game lead in the AL West. That's because the L.A. Angels lost 4-2 to Boston. Mike Napoli hit his 14th homer for the Red Sox.
 
     - Mike Zunino hit a three-run homer, Hisashi Iwakuma pitched seven innings and the Seattle Mariners beat the Chicago White Sox 4-1 for their fourth straight victory. Zunino moved into a tie for the major league lead in home runs by a catcher with his 18th of the season.
 
     - Freddie Freeman and brothers B.J. and Justin Upton, all touched Stephen Strasburg with early home runs and Tommy LaStella added a solo shot as the Atlanta Braves snapped their eight-game losing streak by holding off Washington 7-6. The Braves led 7-0 after five innings. The victory cuts the Nationals lead to three and a-half games over the Braves. Strasburg fell to 8-10.
 
     - The Milwaukee Brewers routed the L.A. Dodgers 9-3 in a matchup of division leaders. Rickie Weeks hit a three-run homer and Gerardo Parra had two hits and two RBIs.
 
     - Kansas City doubled up San Francisco 4-2 in interleague play. Billy Butler homered and drove in three runs. The Royals have won five straight.
 
     - Miami nipped Cincinnati 2-1. Nathan Eovaldi held Cincinnati to five hits over eight shutout innings. Giancarlo Stanton hit his NL-leading 28th homer.
 
     - Pittsburgh's Gregory Polanco and Josh Harrison had three hits each and Vance Worley outdueled Ian Kennedy as the Pirates beat the San Diego Padres 2-1.
 
     - Bartolo Colon pitched eight innings for his 200th career victory, Travis d'Arnaud homered and the New York Mets held on for a 5-4 victory over Philadelphia.
 
     - Nick Castellanos tied the game with a two-run homer in the ninth inning and Eugenio Suarez followed with a go-ahead shot as the Detroit Tigers rallied to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-4.
 
     - Houston won the battle of Texas by beating the Rangers 4-3. Robbie Grossman's two-run homer gave the Astros the victory. Chris Carter hit his 25th homer for the Astros.
 
     - Arizona jumped on Colorado for three runs in the first inning and coasted past the Rockies 5-3. Miguel Montero hit his 12th homer for the D-Backs.
 
     - Kevin Kiermaier, who entered the game in the eighth inning, drove in the game-winning run with a single in the 10th to give the Tampa Bay Rays a 4-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.

     LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Rory McIlroy is living up to pre-tournament expectations.  The heavy favorite is the 36-hole leader at the 96th PGA Championship after a 4-under 67 left him 9 under for his two days. McIlroy seemed unfazed by the 50-minute rain delay and soggy conditions at Valhalla as he shoots for his third straight win and second straight in a major.  The world's No. 1 ranked player is now 9-under par. That's one shot better than Jim Furyk and Australian Jason Day.
 
     First round co-leader Ryan Palmer shot a 70 and is two shots off the lead along with Rickie Fowler and Mikko Iloen.
 
     Phil Mickelson is heading into the weekend with some momentum. He eagled the 18th to finish a round of 67 and is just three shots off the lead.
 
     Tiger Woods will be heading home for the weekend. The four-time champ shot a 3-over 74 and finished six over par for his two rounds. It's the fourth time that Woods has missed the cut at a major in his pro career. He has not won a major since 2008.

     LOS ANGELES (AP) - The legal drama over the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers will extend into next week.  An appellate court refused to consider Donald Sterling's request to block the $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer Friday, but has given him until next Wednesday to file objections. It's the result of a series of miscommunications between the judge and Sterling's lawyers.
 
     Sterling's estranged wife, Shelly Sterling, negotiated the record sale after the NBA banned the 80-year-old billionaire for making offensive remarks about blacks.
 
     In other basketball news:
 
     - The U.S. national basketball team has added Sacramento's Rudy Gay to its roster, a day after Kevin Durant's withdrawal from the team. Gay averaged 20 points last season for Toronto and Sacramento.
 
     - The Phoenix Suns have signed first-round draft picks T.J. Warren and Tyler Ennis.  Warren was the 14th overall pick out of North Carolina State. The forward averaged 24.9 points and 7.1 rebounds last season and was named the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year. Ennis was taken 18th overall. The guard averaged 12.9 points and 5.5 assists in his lone season at Syracuse.
 
     - NBA superstar LeBron James says he intends to play the rest of his career with Cleveland. When re-signed with the Cavaliers last month to a two-year, $41 million contract that included an option after one year, there was speculation he would one day test free agency again. But James said last night, "I don't plan to go anywhere" before an event Friday night celebrating his homecoming to Northeast Ohio.
