    MINOT, ND (MSU) - The Minot State Football team begins the 2017 campaign tonight on the road at Concordia-St Paul. The Beavers posted a 3-8 overall record last season and feature a new coach this year in Mike Aldrich.

    Sixth-year senior Zac Cunha will be starting quarterback for the Beavers. Cunha, who has missed the majority of the last two seasons due to injury, has played in 35 games in his career and is 544-1026 for 6,557 yards and has thrown 43 touchdowns.

     Trailing 4-3 entering their final at-bat at Target Field, the Twins came back and held their slim lead for the second AL wild-card spot. The Twins completed a three-game sweep with their first hop-off win since current Minnesota manager Paul Molitor was plunked in the 10th at the Metrodome in 1996 to beat Kansas City.
 
     Pinch-hitter Ehire Adrianza opened the ninth with an infield single off closer Juan Minaya (2-2). After a one-out walk, Eddie Rosario hit a tying single. Joe Mauer then walked to load the bases and Jorge Polanco lined back to Minaya. With the crowd on its feet, Minaya's first pitch hit Kepler in the front foot for the winning run.
 
     Alen Hanson hit a solo home run in the top of the ninth to give the White Sox a 4-3 lead. He connected off Matt Belisle (1-2).
