    FARGO, ND (NDSU) - Former North Dakota State men's basketball standout Kory Brown has signed a contract with SSV Lokomotive Bernau in Germany's ProB division - the same team Dexter Werner inked a deal with in July. Brown and Werner arrived on NDSU's campus together in the summer of 2012, and now they will become teammates once again in a suburb of Berlin.

    Brown finished among NDSU's all-time top 20 in career blocks (7th), steals (13th), field goal percentage (15th), rebounds (16th) and assists (17th). He played in 125 games with 123 starts - the third most starts in school history.

    With Brown joining the professional ranks, NDSU has produced five pro players in the last four seasons.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Lorenzo Cain hit a go-ahead, two-run triple in the seventh inning after a checked-swing call went his way on a close two-strike pitch, leading the Kansas City Royals over the Minnesota Twins 5-4 Sunday.
 
     Kansas City trailed 4-3 and had two on with two outs when Cain fouled off his first four pitches from rookie reliever Alan Busenitz (1-1). Cain took a fastball up, then checked his swing on an outside curveball in the dirt.
 
     First base umpire Mike Muchlinski ruled no swing and plate umpire Marty Foster ejected Minnesota manager Paul Molitor, who was still in the dugout. Molitor then came out to argue.
 
     Cain fouled off another pitch, then drove a fastball over Bryan Buxton and off the center-field wall. Cain ran through third base coach Mike Jirschele's hold sign and tried for an inside-the-park home run, but was thrown out at the plate, with right fielder Max Kepler tossing to second baseman Brian Dozier for the relay to catcher Chris Gimenez.

     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Maya Moore scored 26 points and Renee Montgomery added 18 to help the Minnesota Lynx secure the top seed in the playoffs with an 86-72 victory over the Washington Mystics on Sunday.
 
     Minnesota (27-7) finished the season a game ahead of Los Angeles (26-8). Both teams have byes until in the semifinals on Sept. 12.
 
     Washington (18-16) is the sixth seed and plays the Dallas Wings on Wednesday.
 
     Kristi Toliver hit a 3-pointer with 4:28 remaining to pull Washington within 80-71, but Moore answered at the other end and the Mystics didn't score again until the 2:09 mark.
 
     Toliver led Washington with 20 points. Elena Delle Donne added 12 points in just 18 minutes and Krystal Thomas grabbed 14 rebounds.
 
     It was Minnesota's final game at the Xcel Energy Center as the Lynx will play their home playoff games at the University of Minnesota's Williams Arena. The team is moving to accommodate the Minnesota Wild's preseason schedule.

     ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Kyle Sloter, who started just nine games at quarterback in college but became a preseason sensation when he led the NFL with a 125.4 passer rating, said Sunday he's signed with the Minnesota Vikings' practice squad. Sloter tweeted his thanks to Denver Broncos fans who found in him this summer a cult hero on the fringes of the QB competition between Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch.

     GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Green Bay Packers have officially announced the signing of free agent linebacker Ahmad Brooks, while also claiming edge rusher Chris Odom off waivers from the Atlanta Falcons.
 
     Green Bay also traded linebacker and special teams mainstay Jayrone Elliott on Sunday to the Dallas Cowboys for a conditional 2018 draft pick.
 
     The moves signaled a mini-makeover for a pass-rush group that had questionable depth beyond starters Clay Matthews and Nick Perry.
 
     Brooks agreed to a one-year deal last week after being released on Aug. 25 by the San Francisco 49ers. The 33-year-old Brooks had 51 1/2 sacks over eight seasons in San Francisco.
 
     Odom, an undrafted rookie out of Arkansas State, had 17 tackles and two sacks for the Falcons in the preseason.
 
     The Packers also placed offensive lineman Don Barclay on injured reserve. Barclay missed much of camp with an ankle injury.

     DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) - Denny Hamlin overcame a big mistake to overtake Martin Truex Jr. with three laps remaining to win the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.
 
     Hamlin led for 124 laps but fell 20 seconds behind Truex after sliding past the pit road entrance with 54 laps left. He slowly reeled in Truex and passed him when his rival brushed the wall and got a flat tire.
 
     Truex won the first two stages before Hamlin completed a sweep of the weekend races. Hamlin took Saturday's Infinity race.
 
     Truex wrapped up the regular-season championship and gained the No. 1 seed heading into the playoffs in two weeks.
 
     Kyle Busch finished second, followed by Kurt Busch, Austin Dillon and Erik Jones.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks' winning streak has reached double-digits as they gain a firmer grasp on a National League playoff spot.
 
     Ketel Marte and Brandon Drury homered in a three-run sixth that sent the DBacks to their 10th straight win, 5-1 at Colorado. The game was tied 1-1 until Marte smacked his first home run since July 29. Drury later followed with a two-run shot off German Marquez, who allowed four runs over six innings.
 
     Zack Godley allowed three hits, walked six and struck out seven over six innings to help Arizona sweep a three-game series from the Rockies.

Aaron Judge slammed his 38th home run and Starlin Castro had three hits and three RBIs. Chase Headley, Matt Holliday and Todd Frazier went deep against losing pitcher Chris Sale, who was tagged for seven hits over 4 1/3 innings.

     - Domingo Santana homered twice and drove in three runs as the Brewers whipped the Nationals, 7-2. Brent Suter allowed two hits over three shutout innings in his first start since Aug. 12 because of a rotator cuff issue. Milwaukee took three of four from the NL East leaders, whose magic number is 12.
 
     - Harrison Bader belted a tiebreaking solo homer in a three-run sixth that led the Cardinals to a 7-3 victory over Madison Bumgarner and the Giants.

Martinez and Paul DeJong also homered as the Redbirds moved six games behind the NL Central-leading Cubs.
 
     - Jose Ramirez tied a major league record with five extra-base hits, including a pair of home runs in the Indians' 11th consecutive win, an 11-1 pounding of Detroit.

The AL Central leaders tied the longest winning streak in the majors this season and stretched their division lead to nine games over Minnesota.
 
     - Lorenzo Cain delivered a go-ahead, two-run triple in the seventh to push the Royals past the Twins, 5-4. Cain came through after a checked-swing call went his way on a close two-strike pitch.

     - The Orioles earned a four-game split by downing the Blue Jays, 5-4 on Mark Trumbo's RBI single in the bottom of the 12th. Welington Castillo hit two home runs, including a game-tying shot in the ninth. The Orioles' ninth win in 11 games puts them 1 1/2 games behind the Twins for the second AL wild-card berth.
 
     - Like Baltimore, the Angels are 1 1/2 games out of a playoff spot after Elvis Andrus launched two of the Rangers' four home runs in a 7-6 win over Los Angeles. Texas went ahead to stay on back-to-back homers by Robinson Chirinos and Delino DeShields in the fourth inning. Martin Perez won his sixth consecutive start and helped the Rangers get within three games of the Twins.
 
     - Seattle's 10-2 rout of Oakland leaves the Mariners 2 1/2 games out of a playoff spot. Andrew Albers pitched one-hit ball over six innings, allowing only Matt Olson's leadoff homer in the sixth. Robinson Cano was 4-for-5 with a two-run homer and four RBIs in the rout.
 
     - Cameron Maybin launched a three-run shot and the Astros completed a three-game sweep by turning a 4-1 deficit into an 8-6 win against the Mets.

     - Trevor Williams picked up his first win since Aug. 7 by scattering eight hits over seven shutout innings to send the Pirates past the Reds, 3-1. Jordy Mercer and Starling Marte sandwiched solo homers around Jordan Luplow's RBI single to account for Pittsburgh's scoring.

     LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - A fourth-quarter touchdown and a last-second stand allowed Virginia Tech to win a top-25 matchup of a regional rival.
 
     Travon McMillian provided a 3-yard touchdown run with 6:30 left before the 21st-rated Hokies beat No. 20 West Virginia, 31-24. The Mountaineers marched to the Virginia Tech 15 after Joey Slye missed a potential game-clinching field goal with 1:55 remaining.

     Josh Jackson passed for 235 yards, ran for 101 and accounted for two touchdowns in his first start for Virginia Tech.
