    MINOT, ND - With only a couple weeks left in the Legion baseball regular season each game has added importance.

    Mandan Chiefs 8, Jamestown 4

    FARGO, ND (Bismarck Tribune) - The Fargodome has seen plenty of good defensive performances.  The turf saw another Sunday in the 11-man game of the 42nd Annual Shrine Bowl.  The West dominated the East, scoring a decisive 21-2 victory.

    "Our defense was outstanding all game," West coach Mark Gibson, who also coaches Bismarck High School, said. "It was an impressive performance."
    The first half was a defensive battle, which led to the first score of the game.  The West stood up the East at its own goal line. But when the West took over at its own 1-yard line, the East opened the scoring with 3:08 left in the first quarter.  Fargo South's Tyler Trefethren and Grand Forks Red River's Jake Robson combined to tackle Detroit Lake's (Minn.) Casey Paskey in the end zone for a safety.

    Defense led to the second score of the game when the West's Tucker Wojahn of Velva recovered a fumble on a bad snap at the East 37-yard line. Wojahn also had two sacks.

    The West took the lead when Lake Park-Audubon (Minn.) Mason Swegarden threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Rugby's Chris Hamilton with 8:40 to go in the second quarter. Minot's Ben Love kicked the extra point and the West led 7-2.

    The West was not done in the first half when it got its ball back at its own 40-yard line late in the first 24 minutes.  Swegarden threw another touchdown pass, this one to Minot's Josh Pizzo, with only 34 seconds left in the first half to make it 14-2 West.

    The West defense came up with another takeaway, which turned into another West touchdown.  Minot's Jordan Seiderman picked off a pass and returned it to the East 2-yard line.  Swegarden found the end zone himself this time, covering the two yards and making it 21-2 West with 8:27 left in the third quarter.

    The East's offense was on the field for most of the second half, but the West's defense continued to stand strong. The East turned the ball over on downs twice in the second 24 minutes.

    The East rushed for only one yard in the first half and had only 27 total yards in the first two quarters.


    FARGO, ND  (Bismarck Tribune) - It was just like old times for Grant County-Flasher's Taylor Krenz.  Krenz and former Storm teammate Zackary Schmidt played pitch and catch in the Fargodome on Sunday night, sparking a fast start that led to a West win in the Shrine Bowl 9-man football game.

    Krenz, a University of Jamestown recruit, threw for 307 yards and five touchdowns as the West rolled to a 48-14 victory over the East.  Schmidt, a future North Star Athletic Association rival of Krenz's when as he heads to Valley City State in the fall, was again one of his favorite targets. Schmidt caught eight passes for 216 yards and four touchdowns.

    J.W. Froelich, another of Krenz's Grant County-Flasher targets, caught two passes for 52 yards, one of them going for a 27-yard score.

    Krenz and company jumped all over the East defense early on, scoring 20 points in the first quarter and opening up a 34-0 halftime lead.  Keifer Langan of St. John scored the West's first touchdown, on a 1-yard run set up by a big pass play.

    Krenz completed his first 15 passes of the game, and the West scored on its first four possessions.

    Fernando Blanco of Kittson County Central, Minn., was the West's leading rusher with 38 yards.

    Jared Olsgaard of Park Christian, Minn., got the East on the scoreboard on a 8-yard fourth quarter TD run.

    Kayne Griffith of Richland added a 12-yard scoring run for the East. It was his first TD after missing most of his senior season after suffering a season-ending injury in the Colts' opener following an outstanding junior season.

    With the win, the West lent some credibility to the 9-man rivalry. The East had won four of the five previous games to run its advantage in the series to 12-4.  The West's last previous Shrine 9-man victory was a 14-7 triumph in 2011.


     DENVER (AP) - Brian Dozier cranked up for the Home Run Derby at the All-Star game with two homers and the Minnesota Twins beat the Colorado Rockies 13-5 on Sunday.  Dozier hit a solo homer in the eighth and added a three-run shot an inning later for his first career multihomer game. The second baseman will be one of the participants for Monday's Home Run Derby at his home ballpark, Target Field.
     Late fill-in Chris Parmelee ignited a five-run first inning for the Twins with a two-run single. He replaced outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, who was scratched with the flu.
     Phil Hughes picked up his 10th win despite allowing five runs and 10 hits in five innings. It was his first appearance at Coors Field.
     Brett Anderson was rusty in his first outing since April as he allowed six runs - five earned - in five innings.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Home Run Derby kicks off tonight's All-Star festivities with the midsummer classic Tuesday night at Target Field in Minneapolis.  Oakland's Yoenis Cespedes is back trying to defend his title in the Home Run Derby.


     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Texas Rangers prospect Joey Gallo showed off his power with a soaring two-run homer in the sixth inning to give the U.S. team the lead for good in a 3-2 victory over the World squad Sunday at the All-Star Futures Game for baseball's best minor leaguers.
     Gallo's one-out drive to right field off Houston Astros right-hander Michael Feliz was estimated at 419 feet. The 20-year-old third baseman for Double-A Frisco hit several other balls farther than that during a head-turning batting practice display at Target Field.
     The assumed successor for four-time All-Star Adrian Beltre with the Rangers, Gallo has 31 homers and 73 RBIs this season in 85 games. He followed a two-run homer in the top of the sixth by Javier Baez against Washington Nationals right-hander Lucas Giolito.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - San Francisco's Tim Hudson, Cincinnati's Alfredo Simon, San Diego's Huston Street and Washington's Tyler Clippard have been added to the roster for Tuesday's All-Star game at Target Field as the National League changed about one-third of its pitching staff.
     They replace a quartet of pitchers who started Sunday: the Giants' Madison Bumgarner, the Reds' Johnny Cueto, the Padres' Tyson Ross and the Atlanta Braves' Julio Teheran.
     Hudson, a four-time All-Star, is 7-6 with a 2.87 ERA, and Simon is 12-3 with a 2.70 ERA. Street has 24 saves and a 1.09 ERA, and Clippard is 6-2 with a 2.03 ERA in 43 relief appearances.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Maya Moore scored 16 of her game-high 26 points in the third quarter Sunday to lead the Minnesota Lynx to a 77-60 victory over the Seattle Storm.  Janel McCarville scored 13 points while Devereaux Peters added 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Lynx, who won their third straight and have the best home record in the league at 9-1.
     Camille Little led Seattle with 17 points, while Temeka Johnson added 12 for the Storm, who have lost four of six.
     Moore, who leads the WNBA in scoring at 23.7 points per game, opened the third quarter with a nine-point spurt in the first 2 minutes to push the Lynx to a 41-28 lead.  She hit a 3-pointer off the second-half tip, stole a pass and drove the length of the court for a layup, then hit a pair of jumpers.

     UNDATED (AP) - On the final day of action before the four-day All-Star break, the San Francisco Giants made some baseball history.  Madison Bumgarner became the first pitcher in 48 years to hit two grand slams in a season, and Buster Posey also hit a slam in the Giants' 8-4 win over Arizona. Posey and Bumgarner are the first batterymates in major league history to hit grand slams in the same game.
     Posey connected in the fifth and Bumgarner homered the next inning. Bumgarner also hit a slam on April 11 against Colorado.  The last pitcher to launch two slams in a season was Tony Cloninger, for Atlanta in 1966
     In other baseball:
     - Jayson Werth tormented his former team with home run and four runs batted in as the Nationals beat the Phillies 10-3. Ryan Zimmerman and Ian Desmond also drove in two runs apiece. Werth also homered and drove in three runs in Washington's victory over the Phils Saturday night.
     - Chris Johnson had three hits, including his third homer in two days, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Chicago Cubs 10-7. The Braves enter the All-Star break a percentage point back of Washington in the National League East.
     - Kris Negron hit his first career home run, a three-run shot, and All-Star Todd Frazier added a two-run homer as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Pirates 6-3. The Reds went 8-3 on their 11-game home stand against Central Division opponents Milwaukee, the Cubs and Pittsburgh. The Pirates completed a seven game road trip 2-5.
     - Elian Herrera got five hits while filling in for mourning shortstop Jean Segura and the Milwaukee Brewers ended a seven-game losing streak by routing the St. Louis Cardinals 11-2. The Brewers tied a season high with 19 hits and took a one-game lead over St. Louis in the NL Central at the All-Star break. Segura is away from the team after the death of his infant child.
     - For the second straight day the L.A. Dodgers blanked San Diego 1-0. Hyun-Jin Ryu struck out 10 and outpitched first-time All-Star Tyson Ross. Yasiel Puig singled home the only run in the sixth.
     - Eric Hosmer's RBI double capped a five-run seventh inning and Kansas City avoided a four-game sweep with a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers. Four of the runs were charged to Justin Verlander, who fell to 8-8. The come-from-behind win leaves the second-place Royals 6 1/2 games behind the Tigers in the AL Central. Since June 18 when K.C. beat the Tigers for their 10th straight win and went a season-best seven games over .500, the Royals have gone 9-14 while the Tigers went 17-6.
     - Clay Buchholz allowed three hits and struck out a career-high 12 in his fifth career shutout as the Red Sox blanked the Astros 11-0. Brock Holt had a career-best five hits, including a leadoff homer, to help the Red Sox to their fourth victory in five games heading into the All-Star break.
     - No question the team that goes into the All-Star break needing a rest is the Texas Rangers, who have the worst record in the majors at 38-57 after their eighth straight defeat, 10-7 to the L.A. Angels. The Angels, a major league-best 26-9 since June 6, swept a four-game series against Texas for the first time in their history.
     - Sonny Gray limited the Seattle Mariners to just six hits and one unearned run and the Oakland Athletics earned a 4-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners. Gray earned his 10th victory and Sean Doolittle recorded the final four outs for his 14th save.
     - The Indians beat the White Sox 3-2 as Yan Gomes hit a two-run home run in the home-half of the eighth inning. Gomes drove in all three Cleveland runs. The Indians enter the break with a .500 record while the Sox are six games under the .500 mark.
     - The Mets wrapped up the first half on a run with three wins in a row. They stopped the Marlins 9-1 to reach the All-Star break with a record of 45-50. The Marlins have lost four straight and are 44-50. David Wright drove in two runs for the victorious Mets.
     - Tampa Bay got a win in its last game before the break, beating the Blue Jays 3-0. All-Star David Price scattered five hits in eight-plus innings to win his fourth consecutive start. Because Price pitched on Sunday, he is ineligible to play in the All-Star game Tuesday night in Minnesota. His roster spot was taken by his former teammate, Seattle closer Fernando Rodney. The Jays are 49-46 while the Rays are 44-53.
     - Chris Davis hit a two-run homer to back a strong pitching effort by Kevin Gausman, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the New York Yankees 3-1 Sunday night in a game called by rain after 4 1/2 innings following after a delay of 2 hours, 22 minutes. The Orioles scored all their runs in the fourth inning and Gausman (4-2) got three straight outs in the fifth. After Steve Pearce drew a walk in the bottom half, the rain came.

     LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - Brad Keselowski took the checkered flag in the Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He finished in front of pole sitter Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson under a green-white checkered finish. This is Keselowski's third win of the season, tying him with Jimmie Johnson.  The past 13 races at New Hampshire have produced a different champion every time.

     UNDATED (AP) - Carmelo Anthony is remaining with the Knicks. He posted the news on his website by saying, "in the end, I am a New York Knick at heart." It's believed the Knicks can pay the All-Star forward they acquired in February 2011 nearly $130 million over five years.  Anthony met with Chicago, Houston, Dallas and the Lakers after terminating the final year of his contract and becoming a free agent July 1.
     In other NBA moves:
     - One of the agents for free agent forward Luol Deng says his client has agreed to a $20 million, two-year deal with the Miami Heat. Deng has averaged 16.0 points per game in his career, almost entirely with the Chicago Bulls.
     - Jeremy Lin has joined the Lakers in a trade with the Houston Rockets, who also gave up first- and second-round draft picks in 2015 for the rights to European center Sergei Lishchuk. Lin will make about $15 million this season in the last year of a deal that counts only $8 million against the salary cap. The Lakers have the cap room to absorb Lin's contract.
     - Chandler Parsons is going to the Dallas Mavericks after the Houston Rockets decided not to match the restricted free agent's three-year offer sheet worth more than $45 million.

     RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) - Mario Goetze produced the piece of individual skill that Lionel Messi couldn't muster.  With two quick, deft touches, Goetze ended Germany's 24-year wait for another World Cup title - and denied Messi the one title he needs to forever take his place among soccer's all-time greats.
     Goetze scored the winning goal in extra time to give Germany a 1-0 victory over Argentina in a tight and tense World Cup final. Goetz beat Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero in the 113th minute.  The win is Germany's first as a united country. West Germany won the World Cup in 1954, 1974 and 1990.
