Anthony Swarzak pitched five sharp innings in a fill-in start, Oswaldo Arcia homered and the Minnesota Twins beat the Cleveland Indians 3-1 this afternoon.....

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Anthony Swarzak pitched five sharp innings in a fill-in start, Oswaldo Arcia homered and the Minnesota Twins beat the Cleveland Indians 3-1 this afternoon.   Danny Santana scored after two of his three hits for the Twins, and five relievers totaled six strikeouts over four scoreless innings. Glen Perkins finished up in the ninth for his 24th save in 27 tries.
 
     When Kyle Gibson developed a sore back the day before, Swarzak (2-0) was summoned from the bullpen to replace him in the rotation. He threw 75 pitches, well over the limit the Twins had in mind, but the right-hander allowed just two hits and one walk while striking out three. He was only in trouble once.
 
     Trevor Bauer (4-5) finished six innings for the 11th time in 14 starts this season for the Indians, but he lost for the first time in five July starts.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Audubon Society of Minnesota is asking the Minnesota Vikings to do more to protect birds from fatal collisions with the massive glass walls of its new stadium.   The team recently told the society they wouldn't use glazing techniques and lighting that could warn birds away from the building.
 
     The Vikings and the authority overseeing the stadium told Audubon last year they would turn off stadium lights at night to lower risk to birds. But Audubon says that's only a partial solution. They say using a safer glass would amount to a tiny fraction of a billion-dollar stadium that's getting hundreds of millions of public dollars.
 
     An MSFA spokeswoman said the agency had no immediate comment.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe is backing away from his threat to sue the team over alleged discrimination - for now.   Kluwe vowed last week to sue because he was unhappy with the team's resolution of his complaint against special teams coordinator Mike Priefer for alleged anti-gay slurs.
 
     The Vikings suspended Priefer for three games and made a donation to gay advocacy groups that was less than Kluwe wanted. He also accused the team of cutting him over his activism in favor of gay marriage in Minnesota, a claim the team denied.
 
     Kluwe attorney Clayton Halunen said he and the Vikings had agreed to continue settlement discussions.   Vikings spokesman Jeff Anderson said Halunen had contacted the team to request the talks. He declined further comment.

     DENVER (AP) - Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen is giving up control of the team to deal with Alzheimer's disease. The team has announced that the 70-year-old will no longer be a part of the team's daily operations. Team president Joe Ellis will take over after being named the Broncos' chief executive officer.  The Broncos say the ownership of the team is held in a trust and the hope is that one of Bowlen's children will run the team one day.  Under Bowlen's guidance, the Broncos made six Super Bowl appearances.
