The University of Mary in Bismarck says it is pursuing a men's hockey program...

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The University of Mary in Bismarck says it is pursuing a men's hockey program, with the goal of starting competition next fall. The university has applied for Division 1 status and must now wait for approval from the American Collegiate Hockey Association.

    Athletic director Dale Lennon announced the program during a booster luncheon Friday. He says hockey will fit in perfectly with the campus and give student-athletes more opportunities to continue to play a sport they love and attend University of Mary.

    If all goes as planned, the university plans to get a team of 25 up and running next fall. Dan Huntley has been chosen to head the program. Huntley is a three-time National Junior College Athletic Association Coach of the Year and current Marauders associate athletic director.

    MINNEAPOLIS - Minnesota had their chances last night in New York, including bases loaded in the eight inning, but couldn't rally for a win against the Yankees.

    New York has built a five-game cushion for the league's top wild card with 12 to play. Minnesota is in the second spot, 1 1/2 games ahead of the Los Angeles Angels. So if the standings hold, New York will host the Twins in the one-game playoff on October 3rd.  

    It will be 37-year-old CC Sabathia on the mound for New York against 23-year-old Jose Berrios. Sabathia (11-5, 3.85 ERA) needs one strikeout to match Mickey Lolich (2,832) for third place all-time among left-handers. Sabathia, who will pitch on seven days' rest, is 2-0 with a 3.14 ERA in five starts since returning last month from a brief stint on the DL due to right knee inflammation. Berrios (12-7, 3.84) beat New York 6-1 back home on July 19.

       MIAMI (AP) - With 55 homers, Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton needs six in the final 12 games to match Roger Maris' hallowed 1961 total of 61. That means Stanton needs one more power surge.
 
     The most prodigious, prolific home run hitter in the major leagues might also be the streakiest. His latest homer, on Monday night, snapped a 9-for-62 slump. Before that, he hit 18 homers in a 25-game span.
 
     Stanton acknowledged last month that 61 homers is a goal because Maris' record stood for 37 years before Mark McGwire broke it during the era tainted by steroids.
 
     There's time for Stanton to reach 61. He homered six games in a row in August. But in a sport with no clock, he's racing one.
 
    Major League Baseball is on track to break its season record for home runs with nearly two weeks left in the season.
 
     There were 5,677 home runs hit through Monday, 16 shy of the record set in 2000 at the height of the Steroids Era.

     UNDATED (AP) - Michael Phelps says he has "no desire" to return to competitive swimming, but he's eager to stay involved with the sport and cheer on those who follow in his enormous wake.
 
     In an interview Tuesday with The Associated Press while promoting a healthy pet food campaign, Phelps said he's excited about the birth of his second child and numerous opportunities away from the pool. It was about this time four years ago when he got serious about ending his first retirement, but he now seems very content with his post-swimming life.
 
     His wife, Nicole, is about four months pregnant. The couple already has a 16-month-old son, Boomer.
 
     Phelps says flatly, "I've got no desire, no desire to come back." He's attended a couple of swim meets since winning five golds and a silver at the 2016 Rio Olympics, but says "they truly didn't kick anything off or spike any more interest in coming out of retirement again."
