    MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins begin a six game homestand tonight with the first of two against the San Diego Padres. The Twins hold the second American League wildcard spot.  The Los Angeles Angels trail Minnestoa by one game, Kansas City and Texas by 2 1/2, Baltimore and Seattle by 3 1/2 and Tampa Bay by four.

    Kyle Gibson (9-10, 5.19 ERA) starts for the Twins tonight, while the Padres go with Travis Wood (3-5, 6.00 ERA).

     CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland goes for its 20th consecutive victory in a game against Detroit, a mark that would match the 2002 "Moneyball" Athletics for the best streak this century. Corey Kluber (15-4, 2.56 ERA) is 3-0 during the run, including a 13-strikeout effort against the White Sox last Thursday.
 
     The Indians are approaching the record 26-game mark set by the 1916 New York Giants. That team also had one tie during its run, but those don't count as completed games in baseball, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Lynx were uprooted from their home arena this season while it undergoes some much-needed renovations.
 
     While the Lynx played in unfamiliar territory during the regular season, Lindsay Whalen will feel right at home in the playoffs. With Xcel Energy Center in St Paul occupied this month, the Lynx are moving again to Williams Arena, where the University of Minnesota plays.
 
     Whalen is a former Golden Gopher and says she can't wait to return to the building she starred in during college.
 
     The top-seeded Lynx play Washington in the semifinals. The Mystics beat New York on Sunday thanks to nine 3-pointers from Kristi Toliver, who was a member of the Los Angeles Sparks team that beat Minnesota in the WNBA Finals last season. Game 1 is tonight.

     UNDATED (AP) - There will be football in Tampa this weekend, and the Buccaneers will finally get to start a season delayed by Hurricane Irma's wrath. The Bucs say they will be able to host the Chicago Bears on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium. Tampa Bay couldn't play at Miami as scheduled in Week 1 because of the storm. Buccaneers CEO Brian Ford says "hosting the game is important to us, as Tampa Bay has been through a lot over the past few days."
 
     Also, No. 22 South Florida is resuming practice today and will play host to Illinois on Friday, also at Raymond James. USF athletic director Mark Harlan says "we are confident that Friday's game can proceed safely as scheduled without impacting the recovery efforts."

     PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin says the news surrounding defensive end Stephon Tuitt's injured left biceps is encouraging. Tomlin says there's even a chance that Tuitt could play this weekend when the Steelers host the Minnesota Vikings in their home opener.
 
     Tuitt injured his arm on the second play from scrimmage in Pittsburgh's 21-18 season-opening win over Cleveland. Team officials initially feared Tuitt would be out long term. Tomlin said today that the news is "very positive" compared with what it could have been. The team will monitor Tuitt's progress throughout the week.
 
     If Tuitt does not practice at least once, it is unlikely he will play Sunday. Tyson Alualu and L.T. Walton will fill in for Tuitt if he can't go.
 
     - The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed receiver Allen Robinson on injured reserve and signed receiver Max McCaffrey off New Orleans' practice squad. Robinson tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee Sunday at Houston and will have season-ending surgery. McCaffrey is the son of retired NFL receiver Ed McCaffrey and the brother of Carolina Panthers rookie running back Christian McCaffrey.
 
     - A person with knowledge of the situation says the Arizona Cardinals are re-signing veteran running back Chris Johnson in the wake of the serious injury to star David Johnson. The Cardinals released Chris Johnson in their final roster cuts this year. David Johnson was injured late in the third quarter of the Cardinals' season-opening loss at Detroit, when Johnson was hit hard after a catch at the Lions' 3-yard line.
