     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A race through the streets of Fargo that kicked off its inaugural event a decade ago with more than 2,300 runners will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year with more than 23,000 participants.
 
     The Fargo Marathon is scheduled to start Saturday morning on the Veterans Memorial Bridge that connects Fargo to Moorhead, Minn., and end in front of the historic Fargo Theater. The event includes a half-marathon, 10K, 5K and relays.  It also will include live music with more than 50 bands and disc jockeys spaced out along the 26.2-mile route.
 
     Chris Erichsen of Minneapolis won the men's marathon a year ago in a time of 2 hours, 20 minutes, 42 seconds. Nichole Porath of Northfield, Minn., took the women's crown in 2:50:49.

     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Wild have returned defenseman Keith Ballard to the lineup for Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal against Chicago.  Coach Mike Yeo confirmed the change after the pre-game skate today. Ballard replaced Nate Prosser on the third blue line pair. The veteran is in his first season with the Wild. He has been out with a lower-body injury and last played March 17.  The Wild also shuffled forwards, moving Nino Niederreiter to the first line with Mikko Koivu and Charlie Coyle for more size.
 
     Goalie Darcy Kuemper skated with the team today after leaving Game 7 of the last round against Colorado with an upper-body injury, but Yeo said Kuemper was no closer to returning. Ilya Bryzgalov has been playing in his place.

     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Trailing by two games in this Western Conference semifinal against the Chicago Blackhawks, the Minnesota Wild were in same position just two weeks ago.  They lost the first two games at Colorado before rebounding at home to tie that series against the Avalanche and eventually win that round in seven games.
 
     Over that two-week span, though, the Blackhawks are unbeaten. The Wild have not controlled the pace or generated chances to score like they did in those first two games at Colorado. They were outscored 9-3 by Chicago.
 
     This is a stronger Wild team than the one that lost in the first round to the Blackhawks last year in five games. But they've yet to prove they can compete with the defending Stanley Cup champions in the postseason.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Lynx say forward Devereaux Peters will undergo surgery on her left knee and will be sidelined indefinitely.  The team said Monday that Peters will have arthroscopy on her knee this week at TRIA Orthopedics in Bloomington.  The 6-foot-2 forward finished her second season with the Lynx last season. She played in 34 games, averaging 4.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.0 block per game.
