TODAY'S THOUGHT

God wants to see prayers that are filled with genuine praise and thanksgiving for what He has done in the past. He wants our hearts to be filled with awe and gratitude for His blessings. He wants us to set up memorials in our hearts testifying to the provisions He has given us.

     KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Twins' Jorge Polanco drove in the go-ahead runs off ailing Kansas City closer Kelvin Herrera with two outs in the ninth inning, and Minnesota rallied to beat the Royals 4-2 on Thursday night.
 
     Herrera, who has been dealing with a mild forearm strain, inherited a 2-1 lead before giving up a pair of singles and a walk. Brian Dozier hit a tying sacrifice fly, and after Joe Mauer was walked intentionally, Polanco lined a single up the middle for the lead.
 
     Trevor Hildenberger (3-2) earned the win with a scoreless eighth in relief of Twins starter Kyle Gibson, while Matt Belisle handled a perfect ninth to pick up his sixth save.

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

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - When Adrian Peterson wore purple, the revered running back was predictably off limits for Minnesota's defense during practice. Now his old friends on the Vikings defense will be eyeing him up from the other side, eager to tackle him for the first time. Peterson spent 10 seasons with Minnesota, until he became a free agent and signed with New Orleans this spring. The Vikings host Peterson and the Saints Monday night.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The University of Minnesota has secured another $8 million toward its athletics facilities project thanks to a new sponsorship agreement with TCF Bank. The bank secured naming rights for the Golden Gophers football stadium in 2005, a 26-year deal worth $35 million for the university. New athletic director Mark Coyle helped spearhead an amendment to that agreement to allow TCF to contribute new money to the Athlete's Village, a sprawling practice and workout facility currently under construction. In return for the new money donated, TCF receives the option to extend its naming rights deal with the football stadium for another 10 years through the 2040 season.

     FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs have opened their season by knocking off the defending Super Bowl champs. Alex Smith and rookie Kareem Hunt led an offense that shredded the Patriots in a 42-27 win at New England.
 
     Smith threw a pair of long touchdown passes and Hunt scored three times after fumbling on his first NFL carry. Smith was 28 of 35 passing for 368 yards and four TDs.
 
     Hunt put the Chiefs in front with a 78-yarder to punctuate Kansas City's charge after trailing 17-14 at halftime. Hunt also had a 58-yard scamper and finished with 141 yards rushing and 98 receiving.
 
     Tyreke Hill scored on a 75-yard grab and had 133 receiving yards. Hunt triggered the Chiefs' 21-point fourth quarter with a 78-yard scoring reception. The extra point put Kansas City ahead 28-27 following the extra point with 14:07 remaining.
 
     Tom Brady struggled mightily in the second half and didn't throw for a touchdown, finishing 16 for 36 for 267 yards. He became the 13th quarterback to start an NFL game at age 40.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Before last night, the last major league team to win at least 15 straight games had a movie made about the season. The Cleveland Indians are hoping their current run leads to their first championship in 63 years.
 
     The Indians set a team record with their 15th consecutive victory by belting five home runs and getting another strong performance from Corey Kluber in an 11-2 pounding of the White Sox in Chicago. It's the longest winning streak since the 2002 Oakland Athletics won 20 in a row on their way to the AL West title.
 
     Kluber was outstanding in holding the White Sox to a pair of runs and three hits while striking out 13. He improved to 15-4 with a 2.56 ERA despite allowing solo homers by Yolmer Sanchez and Jose Abreu in the first inning.
 
     Edwin Encarnacion's three run blast put the Tribe ahead 4-0 in the first inning. Erik Gonzalez added a pair of homers for the Indians, who also got round-trippers from Francisco Lindor and Greg Allen.
 
     Cleveland's magic number to win the AL Central is down to 12.
 
     Going in the opposite direction are the Los Angeles Dodgers, who have dropped seven straight and 12 of 13 with last night's 9-1 loss to the Rockies.
 
     Nolan Arenado put Colorado in front with a three-run blast off Clayton Kershaw three batters into the game. Arenado finished with four RBIs and Carlos Gonzalez added a solo shot as the Rockies moved three games ahead of St. Louis and Milwaukee for the second NL wild-card berth.
 
     Kershaw gave up four runs and lasted just 3 2/3 innings in his second start since returning from a back injury.
 
     The Dodgers' lead in the NL West is a healthy 10 games over Arizona, but it was 21 games on Aug. 25.
 
     Checking out the rest of the major league finals:
 
     - Sonny Gray pitched into the sixth inning and the Yankees belted four home runs in a 9-1 pounding of the Orioles. Aaron Judge and Chase Headley hit two-run shots to back Gray, who allowed an unearned run and six hits over 5 2/3 innings. Starlin Castro and Todd Frazier also went deep the Yanks climbed within 3 1/2 games of the AL East-leading Red Sox.
 
     - The Twins have a one-game lead over the Angels for the second AL wild-card berth after Minnesota put together a three-run ninth to beat the Royals, 4-2. Kelvin Herrera came in to preserve a 2-1 win before allowing a sacrifice fly and Jorge Polanco's go-ahead, two-run single. Robbie Grossman homered for the Twins.
 
     - Jon Lester worked six innings and the Cubs collected eight extra-base hits in an 8-2 win over the Pirates. Albert Almora Jr. smacked a two-run homer and Anthony Rizzo drove in a pair as Chicago moved five games ahead of the second-place Cardinals and Brewers in the NL Central. Ian Happ was 3-for-5 with two runs scored for the Cubs, who scored in each of the first five innings to chase Jameson Taillon.
 
     - St. Louis was a 3-0 loser at San Diego as Clayton Richard pitched five-hit ball over six innings. Wil Myers clubbed his 25th homer of the season, a two-run shot in the seventh to cap the scoring. Closer Brad Hand struck out Dexter Fowler with the bases loaded to end the game as the Redbirds' four-game winning streak.
 
     - The Nationals' magic number to clinch the NL East is down to four after Washington scored three times in the sixth inning to beat the Phillies, 4-3. The Nats trailed 3-1 until Matt Wieters hit an RBI double and scored on Trea (tray) Turner's two-run single. Tanner Roark worked sixth innings of the Nationals' fourth straight win.
 
     - Washington also got some help from the Braves, who scored twice in the bottom of the ninth to beat the second-place Marlins, 6-5. Ozzie Albies tied it with an RBI double before Kurt Suzuki's walk-off single sent Miami to its fifth straight loss. Albies and Jace Peterson drove in two runs apiece for the Braves.
 
     - Matt Harvey earned his first win since May 28 by spotting the Reds an early 2-0 lead before lasting five innings in the Mets' 7-2 victory. Brandon Nimmo homered twice and had three RBIs to back Harvey, who was making his second start since suffering a shoulder injury.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     NEW YORK (AP) - It will be Sloane Stephens versus Madison Keys in Saturday's U.S. Open women's final.
 
     The unseeded Stephens earned a spot in her first Grand Slam final by outlasting No. 9 Venus Williams, 1-6, 6-0, 7-5. Stephens quickly went up a service break in the third set, but she eventually trailed 5-4 and was two points from defeat before taking the last three games. The rally ended Williams' quest to reach the final for the first time in 15 years.
 
     Stephens is just the fourth unseeded player to reach the U.S. Open women's final in the 49 years of the Open era, and the first since Roberta Vinci in 2015.
 
     The 15th-seeded Keys rolled to a 6-1, 6-2 win over No. 20 Coco Vandeweghe to reach her first Grand Slam final.
 
     Keys won 19 of the first 22 points and raced to a 5-0 lead in an opening set that lasted just 23 minutes. She continued to dominate despite an upper right leg injury that caused her to call the trainer to be taped midway through the second set.
 
     The men's semifinals are today.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Browns rookie defensive end and NFL first-overall pick Myles Garrett will miss Sunday's opener against Pittsburgh and possibly a few more games after severely spraining his right ankle during Wednesday's practice. This is the second time Garrett already has been hurt as a pro after he was limited during his junior year at Texas A&M by a badly sprained left ankle.
 
     - The Bengals have signed linebacker Vontaze Burfict to a three-year contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2020 season. The move comes despite Burfict being suspended for the first three games this season following his egregious hit on Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman in a preseason game.
 
     - Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. missed a third straight practice this week because of a sprained left ankle, leaving his status in doubt for Sunday's game at Dallas. Beckham has not practiced since being hurt in a preseason game against Cleveland on Aug. 21.
 
     - Falcons All-Pro receiver Julio Jones says he's 100 percent healthy for Sunday's season opener at Chicago. Jones had right foot surgery in March and took just eight snaps in one preseason game, but he's been practicing with no restraints for the last three weeks.
 
     - The Chiefs have released running back C.J. Spiller and offensive lineman Jordan Devey in a move that allows the team to sign them following their season opener without guaranteeing their contracts. Spiller and Devey are both veterans whose contracts would have become guaranteed for the entire season had they been on the 53-man roster for the Chiefs' first game.
 
     - The Browns have released safety Calvin Pryor after he was involved in a fight with wide receiver Ricardo Louis. Coach Hue Jackson did not provide any details of the skirmish, which took place before practice.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - The Cleveland Indians were without slugger Thursday Jose Ramirez as they set a team record with their 15th consecutive victory. Ramirez is sidelined after aggravating a wrist injury on a check swing earlier in the series. Manager Terry Francona says he doesn't expect Ramirez to miss an extended period.
 
     Ramirez has been one of the Tribe's top hitters lately, batting .400 with seven homers and 10 RBIs in his last 13 games. He has a .305 batting average, 25 homers and 69 RBIs on the season.
 
     In other major league news:
 
     - The Nationals have promoted top prospect Victor Robles from Double-A Harrisburg. The 20-year-old outfielder hit .300 with 10 homers, 47 RBIs and 27 steals in 114 games over two minor league stops this season.
 
     - The Braves are offering free tickets to fans from Florida, Georgia and South Carolina displaced by Hurricane Irma. The offer is good for anyone showing a valid Florida ID and is open to residents of Georgia and South Carolina counties under mandatory evacuation orders. The gesture is good for the team's four-game series with the Marlins, which began Thursday.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Nashville Predators general manager David Poile says the team doesn't expect defenseman Ryan Ellis to play for them until possibly 2018. Ellis suffered a major knee injury during the Stanley Cup final and needs a full six months to recover from surgery. He scored 38 points during the regular season and was a major spark in the Predators' charge to their first finals appearance.
 
     In other NHL news:
 
     - Former enforcer George Parros has been hired to run the league's department of player safety. Parros had 159 NHL fights and logged over 1,100 penalty minutes without ever being fined or suspended. He replaces Stephane Quintal, who is stepping down to pursue other opportunities within hockey but is staying on this season to help with the transition.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Former Cuban featherweight champion Sugar Ramos has died in Mexico City at 75. Ramos was best known for his 1963 fight at Dodger Stadium with Davey Moore, who lost consciousness after the bout and went into a coma before dying two days later. Five years earlier in Cuba, Ramos stopped a fighter named Jose Blanco, who also died. The World Boxing Council said he died Sunday of cancer.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     NEW YORK (AP) - Former Yankees shortstop, manager and executive Gene Michael has died at 79. The team says he had a heart attack and died Thursday.
 
     Michael was a slick-fielding infielder who went on to manage the Yankees. Later, as a front-office executive under George Steinbrenner, he built a team that won four World Series titles in five years.
 
     At 6-foot-2 and about 180 pounds in his playing days, Michael was nicknamed Stick. He hit just .229 with 15 home runs in 10 seasons. Seven were with the Yankees from 1968-74, one of the worst eras in team history.
 
     He made a far bigger impact during two terms as manager and two as general manager. He helped assemble the Derek Jeter-led clubs that won World Series titles in 1996 and from 1998 to 2000. He remained a key adviser to current general manager Brian Cashman.
