    MINNEAPOLIS - After an awesome August, the Minnesota Twins have fallen into a bit of a September slump. The Twins recorded a 20-10 record last month, but have lost three out of four in September including last night's 11-4 pounding in Tampa Bay. Despite the losses, Minnesota still clings to a 1/2 game lead over the LA Angels for the second wildcard spot in the American League.  

    44-year old Bartolo Colon will try to get the Twins back to their winning ways as he starts game two of three against the Rays.  Colon had a good August posting a 3.40 ERA in six starts. Tampa Bay will go with Jake Odorizzi, who has struggled to go deep in outings lately.

    Minnesota also made a bunch of moves today. They reinstated outfielder Robbie Grossman and from the 10-day disabled list. Grossman missed the past 18 games with a fractured thumb.

    The Twins also selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Michael Tonkin and recalled right-hander J.T. Chargois from Triple-A Rochester and place him on the 60-day disabled list. The club also announced it reinstated left-handed pitcher Dietrich Enns from the 10-day disabled list and optioned him to Double-A Chattanooga. Additionally, left-handed pitcher Adalberto Mejia will have his rehab assignment transferred from Rochester to Chattanooga.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have named Joe Mauer as the team's nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award. The Clemente award is given for community involvement and philanthropy.
 
     The Twins cited charitable work by Mauer that includes fundraising and personal donations for Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare. They also noted his work to support Friends of St. Paul Baseball, which has raised more than $30,000 for St. Paul youth ballparks, and to get Twins game tickets into the hands of children and families who might not otherwise be able to afford them.
 
     A panel that includes Commissioner Rob Manfred will choose the Clemente winner after the season ends. Fans will also get a chance to vote online in early October.
 
     Clemente died in a plane crash in 1972 while working to deliver supplies to earthquake victims in Nicaragua.

     UNDATED (AP) - Florida State slipped all the way to the No. 10 in The Associated Press college football poll after losing to Alabama and losing quarterback Deondre Francois to a season-ending injury.
 
     The Crimson Tide is No. 1 again, securing 60 of 61 first-place votes in the first Top 25 of the regular season. Ohio State remained No. 2 in the media poll and received the other first-place vote. Defending champion Clemson moved up to No. 3 on Tuesday. Penn State is No. 4 and Oklahoma moved up No. 5, meaning for the second straight week there will be a top-five matchup. The Sooners play at Ohio State on Saturday.
 
     Florida State was No. 3 in the preseason poll and lost an opening-week showdown with Alabama, 24-7. Late in the game Francois went down with a knee injury.

     DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - The NFL says the Miami Dolphins' season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will not be played in Miami this week, but may be moved to a neutral site because of Hurricane Irma. If the game is not relocated, it will be postponed until November, when the teams share the same bye week.
 
     Kickoff had been scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. EDT, but Irma is forecast to threaten South Florida this weekend. A decision on when and where to play is expected by Wednesday.

     CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Hendrick Motorsports' four drivers have committed $200,000 to benefit Hurricane Harvey victims, and the drivers hope to raise a total of $500,000.
 
     Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne and Chase Elliott launched a disaster relief fund Monday that is accepting tax-deductible donations until Sept. 20. The fund can be found at HendrickRelief.org , and donations will go to Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, which is housed at the Greater Houston Community Foundation, and other qualified charities.
 
     Seven-time NASCAR champion Johnson is hosting the disaster relief fund at the Jimmie Johnson Foundation. He called the devastation done by Harvey "incomprehensible" and called on NASCAR fans to help with the recovery.
