VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) - Chris Streveler threw for 290 yards, including a touchdown, and ran in two more scores Saturday to lead South Dakota past North Dakota for a 45-7 win.
Kai Henry also ran in two touchdowns, including a 34-yard run up the middle, and Ben Klett had a 7-yard TD run late in the game as South Dakota notched its first 3-0 season start since 2006.
Streveler was 23-for-30 passing and piled up another 62 yards on the ground. His first touchdown came late in the first quarter as he scrambled around the left end for 7-yard score. He later connected with Shamar Jackson with 10 seconds left in the opening half on a 13-yard touchdown pass and then got his third TD on a 14-yard quarterback draw.
The Coyotes also got a 21-yard field goal from Ryan Weese.
North Dakota (1-2) was held scoreless until the fourth quarter when Travis Toivonen hauled in a 10-yard touchdown throw from Keaton Studsrud.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Marco Estrada pitched eight efficient innings, Josh Donaldson homered twice among his four hits and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Minnesota Twins 7-2 on Saturday night.
Minnesota's loss clinched the AL Central for the Cleveland Indians and gave teams a chance to gain on the Twins for the final AL wild card. Minnesota entered the day two games ahead of the Angels.
Estrada (9-8) allowed two solo homers and extended his string of allowing three earned runs or fewer to nine of his last 11 outings.
Jose Bautista ended his 0-for-17 skid with three hits and an RBI for Toronto.
Donaldson gave the Blue Jays an early lead in the first by sending a first-pitch shot off Adalberto Mejia (4-6) into the second deck in left-center.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - With starting quarterback Sam Bradford listed as questionable for Sunday's game with a knee injury, the Minnesota Vikings have signed quarterback Kyle Sloter from their practice squad.
Backup quarterback Case Keenum would start in Pittsburgh if Bradford cannot play.
Bradford played one of the best games of his career in a season-opening victory over New Orleans on Monday night. But he was limited in practice this week after coming out of the game with an injured left knee.
The Vikings opened the season with only two quarterbacks on the active roster and Teddy Bridgewater on the physically unable to perform list.
Sloter was cut by the Denver Broncos in the preseason before signing with Minnesota's practice squad. He would give the Vikings some insurance behind Keenum should Bradford be deactivated for the game.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Marco Estrada pitched eight efficient innings, Josh Donaldson homered twice among his four hits and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Minnesota Twins 7-2. Minnesota's loss clinched the AL Central for the Cleveland Indians and gave teams a chance to gain on the Twins for the final AL wild card. Minnesota entered the day two games ahead of the Angels.

- Jorge Alfaro homered and Philadelphia's relievers pitched six strong innings after a rain delay to lead the Phillies over the Oakland Athletics 5-2. J.P.

Romano allowed five hits, struck out six and walked none while improving to 3-1 over his last six starts. Elias Diaz's one-out double in the fifth was the only runner to get past first base against the rookie right-hander.
- Francisco Lindor hit a two-run double as the Cleveland Indians snapped back into the win column by beating the Kansas City Royals 8-4. The Indians had their AL record stopped at 22 straight by the Royals on Friday. Lindor has an extra-base hit in a club record 10 straight games. The Indians clinched at least a tie for the AL Central title, and can win it outright if Minnesota loses.
- Didi Gregorius and Greg Bird both homered for the second straight game, rookie Jordan Montgomery pitched six shutout innings and the New York Yankees downed the Baltimore Orioles 9-3 for their fourth win in a row.

- Cody Bellinger hit his 38th homer to match the National League single-season record for rookies, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Washington Nationals 3-2 Saturday to inch closer to the NL West title. Los Angeles has won four straight since dropping 11 in a row. The winning streak includes the first two games of this series, which concludes Sunday.
- Dallas Keuchel threw six solid innings, Carlos Beltran had three hits and two RBIs and the Houston Astros beat the Seattle Mariners 8-6 on Saturday to drop their magic number to one for clinching the AL West title.
