     SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley threw for 227 yards, rushed for 70 and accounted for three touchdowns as the Utes overwhelmed FCS North Dakota 37-16 in the season opener for both teams Thursday night.
 
     Utah debuted its new fast-paced, pass-first, spread offense with first-year offensive coordinator Troy Taylor and the difference was apparent from the start.
 
     Huntley had his mistakes with some bad decisions and some errant throws, but he repeatedly made plays with his arms and legs and posted career-highs in passing and rushing yards. Running back Zack Moss finished with a career-high 128 yards rushing and a touchdown on 22 carries. Oregon transfer Darren Carrington had 10 receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown.
 
     The Utes scheme is designed to throw early and often, but Taylor has insisted the run game will be a big component. Utah ran for 272 yards.
 
     North Dakota quarterback Keaton Studsrud threw for 175 yards and a touchdown. The run game was bottled up for 51 yards.
 
     North Dakota returns to FCS action when it hosts Missouri State on Sept. 9.
 
     Utah travels to face rival BYU on Sept. 9. The Utes have won six straight against the Cougars.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Max Kepler was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Minnesota Twins rallied to beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4 this afternoon for their fourth straight win.
 
     Trailing 4-3 entering their final at-bat at Target Field, the Twins came back and held their slim lead for the second AL wild-card spot. The Twins completed a three-game sweep with their first hop-off win since current Minnesota manager Paul Molitor was plunked in the 10th at the Metrodome in 1996 to beat Kansas City.
 
     Pinch-hitter Ehire Adrianza opened the ninth with an infield single off closer Juan Minaya (2-2). After a one-out walk, Eddie Rosario hit a tying single. Joe Mauer then walked to load the bases and Jorge Polanco lined back to Minaya. With the crowd on its feet, Minaya's first pitch hit Kepler in the front foot for the winning run.
 
     Alen Hanson hit a solo home run in the top of the ninth to give the White Sox a 4-3 lead. He connected off Matt Belisle (1-2).
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jakeem Grant caught four passes for 141 yards and a touchdown and the Miami Dolphins wrapped up the preseason with a 30-9 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday night.
 
     David Fales completed 9 of 15 passes for 139 yards and two scores, including a 65-yarder to Grant , a second-year receiver that coach Adam Gase has been trying to get more involved in the Dolphins offense.
 
     Cayleb Jones had nine catches for 127 yards and a touchdown for Minnesota, which finished the preseason 2-2. Taylor Heinicke threw a touchdown, but was underwhelming in his two quarters of play before he was knocked out of the game with a concussion.
 
     Both teams rested almost all of their regular starters with the first game of the regular season just a week away. That included Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler, who came out of retirement earlier this month to replace the injured Ryan Tannehill.
 
     Kenyan Drake ran for a touchdown and Fales also threw a 6-yard TD to former University of Minnesota quarterback MarQueis Gray to help the Dolphins finish 2-2 on the preseason.
 
     Gase moved Grant from slot receiver to outside this summer, hoping it would give the former Texas Tech Red Raider more opportunities. He had plenty of them on Thursday night, catching a 28-yard pass early in the first quarter to get going, drawing a pass interference near the end zone to set up Drake's 1-yard plunge .
 
     In the second quarter, he got behind defensive backs Jayron Kearse and Sam Brown and hauled in a perfectly thrown deep ball from Fales to put Miami up 14-0.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Chicago Cubs have hung onto their 3 1/2-game lead over Milwaukee in the NL Central, while the New York Yankees cut into Boston's lead in the AL East.
 
     Kris Bryant slammed a two-run homer and leadoff hitter Jon Jay was 4-for-5 with two runs scored as the Cubs handled the Braves, 6-2. Bryant doubled and scored in a two-run first inning before blasting his 25th homer of the year, through a stiff wind in the sixth
 
     Kyle Hendricks helped Chicago win its fourth in a row by holding Atlanta to one earned run and five hits over 6 2/3 innings.
 
     The Brewers were 6-3 winners against the Nationals as Zach Davies scattered six hits and lowered his ERA to 1.77 over his last nine starts. Davies improved to 16-6 with help from Jonathan Villar's (vee-AHRZ') two-run homer off Gio Gonzalez.
 
     Juan Aguilar added a two-run single for the Brewers, who also got three hits and an RBI from Stephen Vogt.
 
     Washington still leads the NL East by 15 games over Miami.
 
     Over in the AL East, The Yanks climbed within 4 1/2 games of the division lead by topping the Red Sox, 6-2. Greg Bird launched a two-run homer and had three RBIs in CC Sabathia's fourth win over Boston this season.
 
     Sabathia held the Red Sox to four singles over six innings before David Robertson and Dellin Betances completed the combined four-hitter.
 
     Gary Sanchez slammed his 28th homer for New York.
 
     Elsewhere around the majors:
 
     - The Cardinals' 5-2 win at San Francisco keeps St. Louis six games off the NL Central lead. Randal Grichuk smashed a two-run homer and Tommy Pham went 3-for-4 with two RBIs in the Redbirds' fourth win in 11 games. Michael Wacha was reached for only one run and four hits over six innings for his 10th win.
 
     - A pair of streaks continued in Phoenix after Chris Ianetta and A.J. Pollock belted two-run homers in the Diamondbacks' 8-1 pounding of the Dodgers. Zack Greinke improved to 16-6 and helped Arizona pick up its seventh consecutive win by holding his former team to a run and four hits over six innings. The DBacks extended the Dodgers' season-worst losing streak to five games while moving 3 1/2 games ahead of Colorado for the first NL wild-card berth.
 
     - Jose Altuve hit a solo homer and Josh Reddick provided a tiebreaking, RBI single as the Astros downed the Rangers, 5-1 in St. Petersburg, Florida. The Astros led just 2-1 in the eighth until Alex Bregman lined an RBI single and scored on Derek Fisher's two-run single. Chris Devenski worked 2 1/3 innings of hitless relief to get the win.
 
     - The Orioles' seven-game winning streak is over after Kendrys Morales torched them for three home runs and a career-high seven RBIs in the Blue Jays' 11-8 win at Baltimore. Morales unloaded a three-run blast in the sixth after Toronto put together a five-run fifth to erase a 5-2 deficit. Adam Jones and Chris Davis homered for the Birds, who fell 2 1/2 games behind Minnesota for the second AL wild-card berth.
 
     - The Twins scored twice in the bottom of the ninth to pull out their fourth consecutive win, 5-4 over the White Sox. Alen Hanson's solo shot put Chicago ahead 4-3 in the top of the ninth, but Minnesota tied it on Eddie Rosario's single before Max Kepler was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to end it. Kepler and Jorge Polanco hit RBI doubles for the Twins, who began the day with a one-game lead over the Angels for the second AL wild-card slot.
 
     - Ben Lively laced a two-run single and worked six strong innings as the Phillies got past the Marlins, 3-2. Lively yielded two runs and five hits to help Philadelphia drop Miami under .500. Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton went 0-for-5 to finish with 18 homers for the month, matching the big league record for August.
 
     - Scooter Gennett drove in three runs with a homer and a double off Jacob deGrom as the Reds whipped the Mets, 7-2 in the rubber match of the three-game series. Stuart Turner also hit a two-run homer and Joey Votto smacked a solo shot to help the Reds prevent deGrom from getting his career-high 15th win.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - J.K. Dobbins helped the second-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes shake off a sluggish start in their season opener.
 
     Dobbins set a Buckeyes record by rushing for 181 yards in his college debut to lead a 49-21 downing of Indiana. He became the primary ball-carrier while filling in for Mike Weber, who was out with a hamstring injury.
 
     J.T. Barrett overcame a slow start to finish 20 of 35 for 304 yards and three touchdowns as Ohio State beat the Hoosiers for the 23rd consecutive time. Barrett added 61 yards rushing and another score to move within two touchdowns of matching Drew Brees' Big Ten career record of 106 total TDs.
 
     The game was tied at 21 until the Buckeyes scored the final 28 points.
 
     Indiana controlled most of the first half of Tom Allen's home debut as coach.
 
     The other top-25 game of the night had No. 10 Oklahoma State crushing Tulsa, 59-24. Mason Rudolph was 20 of 24 passing for 303 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. Preseason AP All-American James Washington caught six passes for 145 yards, including touchdown receptions of 77 and 40 yards.

     NEW YORK (AP) - Roger Federer entered Thursday's U.S. Open action 16-0 against Mikhail Youzhny and 16-0 in second-round matches at Flushing Meadows. He needed to rally before extending both streaks.
 
     The third-seeded Federer has moved into the third round with a 6-1, 6-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 triumph over the 101st-ranked Youznhy. It was the second consecutive five-set match for the 19-time Grand Slam champion, who struggled against American Frances Tiafoe in the opening round.
 
     Sixth seed Dominic Thiem also advanced to the third round, as did No. 9 David Goffin and No. 11 Roberto Bautista-Agut.
 
     Seventh seed Grigor Dimitrov wasn't as fortunate, falling to Andrey Rublev in straight sets. The loss further diminishes a field that lost second seed Andy Murray, fourth seed Stan Wawrinka, No. 5 Novak Djokovic and No. 10 Kei Nishikori due to injuries before the tournament began. Sixth seed Alexander Zverev was ousted on Wednesday.
 
     Women's top seed Karolina Pliskova has advanced to the third round by rallying for a 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory over American Nicole Gibbs.
 
     Other second-round winners on the women's side include fourth seed Elina Svitolina, 10th seed Agnieszka Radwanska and 12th seed Jelena Ostapenko. No. 15 Madison Keys also reached Round 3, and American Jennifer Brady knocked out No. 23 Barbora Strycova, 6-1, 6-1.
 
     American Shelby Rogers won the longest women's singles match in U.S. Open history, beating Daria Gavrilova, 7-6, 4-6, 7-6 in three hours and 33 minutes.
 
     Kurumi Nara pulled off the biggest stunner of the women's bracket by eliminating eighth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova in three sets.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - The Angels have picked up a former All-Star second baseman and made a couple of changes to their outfield.
 
     A person with knowledge of the deal says Los Angeles is getting Brandon Phillips from the Braves for minor-league catcher Tony Sanchez. The four-time Gold Glove winner is batting .291 with 11 homers and 52 RBIs.
 
     The Halos also acquired four-time All-Star outfielder Justin Upton from the Tigers for minor-league pitcher Grayson Long and either cash considerations or a player to be named. The 30-year-old Upton is having a strong season for the struggling Tigers, batting .279 with 28 homers and 94 RBIs. The four-time All-Star signed a six-year, $132.75 million deal to join Detroit before last season, but could opt out of it this winter.
 
     With the acquisition of Upton, the Angels allowed Cameron Maybin to be picked up on waivers by the Astros. The 30-year-old Maybin is tied for the American League lead with 29 stolen bases but is batting just .235 with six home runs and 22 RBIs this year.
 
     In other baseball news:

     - Cubs left-hander Jon Lester is scheduled to start Saturday against Atlanta following a successful 50-pitch bullpen session Wednesday. He's recovering from left lat tightness and shoulder fatigue. But shortstop Addison Russell was called back to Chicago to be examined after experiencing a setback in his recovery from a right foot injury.
 
     - The Phillies have claimed reliever Juan Nicasio from the Pirates on waivers. Nicasio is 2-5 with a 2.65 ERA in 65 appearances this season.
 
     - Former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow (TEE'-boh) plans to return to the New York Mets' organization next season. Tebow is hitting .222 in 123 minor league games this year.

     UNDATED (AP) - The NBA has fined the Los Angeles Lakers $500,000 for their handling of talks involving Paul George.
 
     The league said new Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka violated anti-tampering rules by making contact with George's agent while the player was still under contract with the Indiana Pacers.
 
     The NBA said a law firm's independent investigation didn't find evidence of an agreement or an understanding that the Lakers would sign or acquire George. He was eventually traded to Oklahoma City.
 
     The league had warned the Lakers about tampering following comments by president of basketball operations Magic Johnson about George on national TV on April 20.
 
     In other NBA news:
 
     - Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert is promising to "never" move his NBA team from Cleveland. Earlier this week, he scrapped plans for a $140 million renovation of Quicken Loans Arena, prompting speculation he might leave the city when his lease expires in 2027. He says on Twitter he wants to "put any silly rumors to rest.
 
     - The Bulls say guard Cameron Payne will have surgery next week for a broken right foot. Payne fractured the fifth metatarsal during a workout July 18. The team says six weeks of rest in a boot was prescribed, but a subsequent scan and examination this week revealed the foot hasn't healed. Surgery is scheduled for Wednesday.

     UNDATED (AP) - The NFL players' union is suing the league on behalf of Ezekiel Elliott.
 
     The NFLPA is seeking to vacate the upcoming ruling of an arbitrator over the Dallas running back's six-game suspension in a domestic violence case.
 
     The lawsuit accuses the NFL's appeal process of being "fundamentally unfair" by claiming that league executives hid information that favored Elliott and that arbitrator Harold Henderson denied a request to have his ex-girlfriend testify during the appeal.
 
     Also in the NFL:
 
     - The Texans and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins have agreed to a five-year, $81 million contract extension that includes $49 million in guaranteed money, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. Hopkins has piled up 4,487 yards receiving in his first four seasons, including a career-high 1,521 in 2015.
 
     - The 49ers have acquired offensive lineman Laken Tomlinson from the Detroit Lions for an undisclosed draft pick, pending a physical. The Niners need help on the interior line after starting right guard Joshua Garnett injured his knee in training camp and might not be ready for the start of the season.
 
     - The Steelers have signed general manager Kevin Colbert to an extension through the 2020 draft. Colbert began his tenure with the Steelers as director of football operations in 2000 before accepting the title of general manager in 2011. The Steelers have won two Super Bowls and been to another during Colbert's tenure, capturing eight division titles and earning 11 playoff berths.
