TODAY'S THOUGHT

God wants to see prayers that are filled with genuine praise and thanksgiving for what He has done in the past. He wants our hearts to be filled with awe and gratitude for His blessings. He wants us to set up memorials in our hearts testifying to the provisions He has given us.

      MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Lynx has signed forward Cecilia Zandalasini for the remainder of the season. The 6-foot-1 forward from Broni, Italy, recently represented her country at FIBA EuroBasket 2017 in the Czech Republic. She ranked second in scoring at 19 points per game, second in 3-point accuracy and free throw percentage, and third in field goal shooting.
 
     In 36 Italian league games this past season, Zandalasini averaged 9.3 points and 4.3 rebounds while helping her club team, Famila Schio, reach the LegA finals in May. Terms of Zandalasini's contract were not disclosed.

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

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - After losing 103 games in 2016, the Minnesota Twins have reached the final five-week stretch of the season with a spot in the playoffs in plain sight. That's almost as remarkable as a 44-year-old pitcher helping lead the push. Bartolo Colon has done just that in eight starts since being picked up by the Twins.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Brett Goode has won the long snapper job again for the Green Bay Packers following the release of undrafted rookie Derek Hart. Goode was re-signed on Aug. 12 after normally reliable kicker Mason Crosby had problems early in camp while Hart was the lone long snapper. Coaches said there were problems with the field goal operation. Goode played the previous nine seasons in Green Bay, though the Packers initially decided to go with Hart in the offseason.
 
     The team on Monday also released two other undrafted rookies, receiver Colby Pearson and running back William Stanback.
 
     Green Bay wraps up the preseason on Thursday when the Los Angeles Rams visit Lambeau Field. Teams must cut rosters down to the 53-man limit on Saturday.
 
     Coach Mike McCarthy is hopeful that linebacker Nick Perry, right tackle Bryan Bulaga and backup offensive lineman Don Barclay are available for the season opener on Sept. 10 against Seattle. All three have ankle injuries.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     DETROIT (AP) - A person familiar with the deal says Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions have agreed to a $135 million, five-year extension that makes him the highest-paid player in the NFL.
 
     The person spoke Monday night to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because terms were not disclosed. The team announced the deal keeps the quarterback under contract through the 2022 season.
 
     Stafford was entering the last season of his $53 million, three-year contract. He stood to get quite a raise and did, getting more than the $125 million, five-year contract the Oakland Raiders gave Derek Carr this summer.
 
     Detroit drafted Stafford No. 1 overall in 2009. He helped the Lions reach the playoffs last season for the third time in six seasons.

     NEW YORK (AP) - Corey Kluber outpitched Luis Severino in a marquee matchup of All-Stars, and slumping Jose Ramirez homered twice to power the Cleveland Indians past the New York Yankees 6-2 on Monday night for their fifth straight victory.
 
     Carlos Santana hit a tiebreaking homer off Severino in the seventh inning and Austin Jackson also went deep for the AL Central leaders, who increased their cushion to seven games over idle Minnesota.
 
     Coming off three consecutive shutouts in a sweep of Kansas City, the defending AL champions ran their scoreless streak to 30 innings before Chase Headley homered against Kluber (13-4) leading off the third. The 2014 AL Cy Young Award winner went eight innings and allowed only three hits, rebounding from a loss to Boston last week that ended a five-game winning streak and marked his first defeat since July 4.
 
     Kluber struck out seven and walked one as the Indians (74-56) won for the 14th time in 18 games.
 
     In other games:
 
     - Toronto relievers surrendered four earned runs on five hits, including a two-run homer to Christian Vazquez, as the Boston Red Sox edged the Blue Jays 6-5. Vazquez hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning as the Red Sox snapped a four-game losing streak. Boston's AL East lead goes back to 3 1/2  games over the New York Yankees.
 
     - Rhys Hoskins ended his homer streak but did drive in the go-ahead run with a sixth-inning double, Aaron Nola pitched seven strong innings and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Atlanta Braves 6-1. Cameron Rupp homered for the Phillies, who have connected in 10 straight games and totaled 21 homers over that stretch.
 
     - Jayson Werth returned from a long injury layoff to hit a 2-run home run to lead the Washington Nationals to an 11-2 victory over the visiting Miami Marlins. Miami trailed the Nationals by 12 games coming into Monday night's game, and lost a chance to close the margin in the NL East Division. Righthander Max Scherzer, a two-time Cy Young Award winner, got his 13th win of the season, also returning from an injury.
 
     - Adam Jones hit a milestone home run, Wellington Castillo had three hits and two RBIs and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Seattle Mariners 7-6 for their fifth straight victory. Baltimore jumped past Seattle (66-66) to within 1  1/2 games of idle Minnesota for the final AL wild-card spot. Jones' solo home run in the fifth inning gave him 25 for an Orioles-record seventh consecutive season.
 
     - The Kansas City Royals extended their scoreless streak to an AL record-tying 43 innings, getting shut out for a fourth straight game in a 12-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. The Royals haven't scored since the second inning of a 3-2 loss to Colorado last Thursday. Austin Pruitt (7-4) pitched six one-run innings for Tampa Bay, and Matt Andriese allowed one more hit while getting a three-inning save, his first this season.
 
     - Mike Montgomery pitched six-hit ball into the eighth inning and helped himself at the plate, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 6-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Montgomery (5-6) struck out four and walked none in his second start since he was inserted into the rotation after Jon Lester was placed on the 10-day disabled list. The left-hander was pulled after Jordy Mercer snapped his 17 1/3-inning scoreless streak with a leadoff homer in the eighth.
 
     - Nicholas Castellanos had three hits, including a two-run triple, and Jordan Zimmermann rebounded from early trouble to help the Detroit Tigers beat the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Monday night. The Rockies stranded 11 baserunners as they began a nine-game homestand. Their lead for the second NL wild-card spot dwindled to three games over idle Milwaukee.
 
     - Andrew Heaney struck out a career-high 10, Martin Maldonado had three hits and scored twice and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Oakland Athletics 3-1. Heaney (1-0), making his third start since Tommy John surgery, struck out the side in the first and the sixth innings. He had his best outing since the surgery.
 
     - Jeff Samardzija allowed just three singles in pitching his first shutout since 2015, and Brandon Crawford and Joe Panik homered to lead the San Francisco Giants to a 3-0 victory over the San Diego Padres. The former Notre Dame wide receiver struck out five and walked none.

     HOUSTON (AP) - Hurricane Harvey has forced both the Houston Astros and Houston Texans to play home games miles away from the flood-stricken city with players wondering when they will be able to come back.
 
     The Astros will play a three-game series against the Texas Rangers at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, this week, starting today, and the Texans will wrap up their preseason schedule against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium in Arlington instead of NRG Stadium.
 
     Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph said it's difficult to concentrate on his game "and then think about your family that's back home when there's constantly updates going on around the clock about things that are going on back in your hometown."
 
     Both the Astros and Rangers flew to Dallas after games in California on Sunday to await news of where the series would be held.

     ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - A person with direct knowledge of the move tells The Associated Press that the Buffalo Bills have agreed to sign Keith Wenning to address their injury-depleted quarterback position entering their final preseason game.
 
     The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Monday because the Bills have not yet announced the deal first reported by ESPN.com.
 
     Buffalo turned to Wenning because starter Tyrod Taylor and third-stringer T.J. Yates are both being evaluated for concussions suffered Saturday in a 13-9 preseason loss at Baltimore. The injuries left the Bills with fifth-round pick Nathan Peterman as the only quarterback available for their preseason finale against Detroit on Thursday.
 
     The 26-year-old Wenning has yet to play in an NFL game since being selected by Baltimore in the sixth round of the 2014 draft. He was signed by the New York Giants late last season before being cut in May.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Linebacker Reggie Ragland will get a fresh start in Kansas City after the Chiefs acquired the second-year player in a trade with the Buffalo Bills. In exchange, the Bills acquired a fourth-round pick in the 2019 draft.
 
     The Chiefs land a player with the potential of being an upgrade for Josh Mauga, who was released earlier in the day. Ragland also gets a chance to play in a three-lineman, four-linebacker-styled defense, which he was accustomed to at Alabama.
 
     For the Bills, they cut ties with a 2016 second-round draft pick who was in jeopardy of being cut this weekend when teams establish their 53-player roster.  The Bills drafted Ragland because he was considered an ideal fit in former coach Rex Ryan's defense. That changed when Ryan was fired and replaced by Sean McDermott, who prefers a 4-3 system.
 
     Ragland missed all of last season after tearing a ligament in his left knee during training camp.

     UNDATED (AP) - New York Rangers Hall of Famer Jean Ratelle will finally get his No. 19 raised to the rafters at Madison Square Garden, the same season Eric Lindros will have his No. 88 retired by the Philadelphia Flyers.
 
     Lindros will be honored by the Flyers before their Jan. 18 game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Ratelle will have his night Feb. 25 before the Rangers face the Detroit Red Wings.
 
     Ratelle, who played parts of 16 of his 21 NHL seasons with the Rangers, entered the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1985 and is second on their franchise goals list with 336 and third in assists with 481 and points with 817. Lindros is the sixth Flyers player to have his number retired after Bernie Parent, Mark Howe, Barry Ashbee, Bill Barber and Bobby Clarke.

     UNDATED (AP) - Jud Heathcote, who led Michigan State and Magic Johnson to the 1979 NCAA championship, has died. He was 90. The school says Heathcote died Monday in Spokane, Washington.
 
     Spartans coach Tom Izzo was hired by Heathcote and was promoted to replace him when he retired in 1995. Heathcote won three Big Ten titles and appeared in nine NCAA tournaments during his 19-year career at Michigan State. He got his start as a head coach in college at Montana in 1971.
 
     Izzo says the basketball world is a sadder place because of his mentor's death, adding no one cared more about the welfare of the game than Heathcote. Izzo helped the Spartans win their second NCAA basketball title in 2000 and often leaned on Heathcote for advice, counsel and humor.
