The home finale for the Minot State baseball team against University of Minnesota Crookston will be played today....

    MINOT, N.D. (MSU) - The home finale for the Minot State baseball team against University of Minnesota Crookston will be played today.  The Beavers (15-21 Overall, 9-13 NSIC) and Golden Eagles (1-41 Overall, 0-30 NSIC), who were originally scheduled to play yesterday, will play today at 12/2 p.m.

    The games are crucial for Minot State, as they can come one step closer to making their first ever NSIC Tournament with two wins against UMC. The doubleheader will also be special in that it will be the last home game for seven Minot State seniors who will be honored prior to first pitch in a brief ceremony.

    BURNSVILLE, Minn. (MSU) - Minot State University softball's Jen Dixon (Sr., OF/P, Brandon, Manitoba) and Melissa Bell (Jr., C, Belgrade, Mont.) were named to the 2014 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference All-Conference team, the league announced Wednesday.

    For Dixon, who was named to the All-NSIC First Team, it was her second straight all-conference selection, while Bell, who was named to All-NSIC Second Team, earned her first all-conference honor. Dixon was also named to her second-straight NSIC Gold Glove team in left field.

    Dixon was honored as a left fielder and is batting .379 on the season entering the tournament. She leads the Beavers in nearly every offensive category, including home runs (12), doubles (11), runs batted in (42) and slugging percentage (.714). Dixon finished the regular season with a .978 fielding percentage with just one error on the season to earn her second Gold Glove award.

    Bell made the team as a first baseman. She comes into the NSIC tournament sporting a .338 batting average, second to Dixon, and is second to the senior in multiple categories, including home runs (10), doubles (10), RBIs (33) and slugging percentage (.634). She is also a perfect 9-for-9 in stolen base attempts.

    The Beavers (28-18 overall) begins the NSIC Postseason Tournament today in Sioux Falls, S.D., with a first round matchup with Upper Iowa at 10 a.m.

     DENVER (AP) - Nino Niederreiter scored his second goal of the game 5:02 into overtime and Ilya Bryzgalov made a big save filling in for an injured Darcy Kuemper, leading the Minnesota Wild to a 5-4 win over the Colorado Avalanche in Game 7 on Wednesday night.  It's the first playoff series win for the Wild since 2003.
 
     Mikko Koivu, Dany Heatley and Jared Spurgeon also scored for the Wild, who will face the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks in the second round.
 
     Nick Holden, Jamie McGinn, Paul Stastny and Erik Johnson scored for the Avalanche.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     DENVER (AP) - Minnesota goalie Darcy Kuemper has left Game 7 of the Wild's playoff series against Colorado with an apparent injury.  Kuemper was replaced by Ilya Bryzgalov in the third period Wednesday night. The nature of the injury wasn't clear and there was no immediate announcement by the Wild.  Bryzgalov had not played since Game 2 of the series.   

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

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Zack Greinke pitched six strong innings, Juan Uribe had two RBIs and the Los Angeles Dodgers earned their 10,000th win in franchise history, 6-4 over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday night.  Greinke struck out six and didn't allow an earned run through drizzling rain and temperatures that dipped into the 30s by the end of the game.
 
     With the bases loaded and the Twins trailing 5-1 in the seventh, reliever Chris Withrow got Trevor Plouffe to pop out to shortstop on a 3-0 pitch to end the threat.  Plouffe's two-run double in the ninth made it 6-4, but Kenley Jansen retired Chris Colabello to earn his 10th save in 12 chances.
 
     The Dodgers join the Giants, Cubs and Braves as the only franchises to win 10,000 games.

     UNDATED (AP) - The New York Rangers have earned the right to take on the Pittsburgh Penguins in the NHL's Eastern Conference semifinals.
 
     The Rangers are 6-0 in Game 7s at Madison Square Garden after Daniel Carcillo and Benoit Pouliot scored in the second period of a 2-1 victory over Philadelphia. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 26 shots and blanked the Flyers until Jason Akeson scored with 15 1/2 minutes left.
 
     In last night's other Game 7:
 
     - The L.A. Kings outscored San Jose 5-1 to advance to an all-Southern California second round. The Kings are the fourth team to come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a seven-game series. The Kings move on to play the Anaheim Ducks next.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Houston Rockets are still alive in the NBA playoffs.  Dwight Howard had 22 points and 14 rebounds as the Rockets beat Portland 108-98 to pull within three games to two in the series. Jeremy Lin provided a big spark off the bench with 21 points, four assists and three rebounds.
 
     Chandler Parsons finished with 20 points and Omer Asik had 15 rebounds while they helped the Rockets hold the Trail Blazers to 43 percent shooting.  Wesley Matthews hit five 3-pointers in scoring a team-high 27 points for the Blazers.  Game 6 is Friday in Portland.

     Toronto coughed up a 26-point lead before downing Brooklyn 115-113. Kyle Lowry scored a career playoff-high 36 points on 6 of 9 from 3-point range, including a trey that put the Raptors ahead to stay.  DeMar DeRozan had 23 points for the Raptors, who would advance to face Miami in the second round with a victory in Game 6 on Friday in Brooklyn.  Joe Johnson scored 30 points for the Nets who outscored Toronto 44-24 in the fourth quarter and twice tied the score late in the game.

     LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Lakers are the latest team in need of a head coach.  Mike D'Antoni has resigned after less than two seasons at the post. He went 67-87 with the Lakers, including a 27-55 mark this season.  D'Antoni took over for Mike Brown, who lasted just 71 games after replacing 11-time NBA champion-coach Phil Jackson.
 
     The 62-year-old D'Antoni had one year left on his contract but wanted the Lakers to pick up his option year for 2015-16 to have any chance of success. The Lakers apparently refused, leading to D'Antoni's resignation.

     NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA owners' advisory and finance committee will hold a meeting today to discuss the next steps in the removal of Donald Sterling as owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.
 
     The 10-member committee will have a conference call two days after Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life from the league and fined him $2.5 million for making racist comments. Silver also said he would urge owners to use their power to force Sterling to sell the team.  That would require the support of three-fourths of the league's owners in a vote.  Minnesota owner Glen Taylor chairs the committee.

     UNDATED (AP) - Atlanta Braves pitcher Aaron Harang entered Wednesday's major league action with the National League's best ERA. That distinction is gone after he was rocked for nine runs and 10 hits over 4 2/3 innings of the Braves' 9-3 loss in Miami.
 
     Harang's ERA rose from 0.85 to 2.97 after allowing a three-run blast by Marcell Ozuna and a two-run shot by Christian Yelich. They were the first home runs allowed by Harang this season.  Winning pitcher Nathan Eovaldi allowed one run and three hits in seven innings to lower his ERA to 2.58.

     - Oakland completed a three-game sweep by ripping Texas 12-1 as Eric Sogard matched his season total with three RBIs. Yoenis Cespedes had two doubles, drove in two runs and scored twice to support Jesse Chavez, who one-hit the Rangers over seven shutout innings.
 
     - C.J. Wilson pitched two-hit ball over eight innings of the Los Angeles Angels' 7-1 pounding of Cleveland, the Indians' sixth straight loss. Hank Conger hit a go-ahead, two-run homer, Mike Trout laced a two-run double and David Freese poked a two-run single to help Wilson improve to 4-2.
