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.

    ST. LOUIS (NDSU) - North Dakota State center Tanner Volson was named Missouri Valley Football Conference Offensive Lineman of the Week by the league office for his performance in the season-opener.

    Volson, a 6-foot-4, 301-pound junior from Balfour, N.D., made his third career start in North Dakota State's 72-7 win over Mississippi Valley State.  He graded out at 100 percent assignment and 87 percent technique with zero sacks allowed.  It is his first player of the week award.

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

     ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Jake Odorizzi took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in front of a tiny home crowd, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Minnesota Twins 2-1 on Tuesday night.
 
     Lucas Duda homered and drove in both runs for the Rays, who improved to .500 on the season and got within two games of Minnesota for the second AL wild card. The Twins have now lost four of five in September.
 
     Joe Mauer got the Twins' first hit - and extended his hitting streak to 14 games - with a grounder that caromed off second base with one out in the seventh. Odorizzi (8-7) was lifted for reliever Dan Jennings after striking out the next batter, Jorge Polanco.
 
     The only other batter to reach base against Odorizzi was Eddie Rosario, who walked leading off the fifth.
 
     The game was played before a crowd of 6,509, the smallest-ever announced attendance for a Rays home game. Nearly 400 fewer fans attended last Wednesday's relocated game between the Astros and Rangers at Tropicana Field.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings are entering this season with a completely new look on the offensive line. After last season's struggles, that may not be a bad thing.
 
     The decision to cut veteran left guard Alex Boone last weekend ensured that the Vikings go into the Week 1 opener against New Orleans with five different players in the five starting positions. Joe Berger is the only holdover from a year ago, and he has moved from center to right guard.
 
     And the starting five that will take the field on Monday night - left tackle Riley Reiff, left guard Nick Easton, center Pat Elflein, Berger and right tackle Mike Remmers - saw no action together in the preseason. So the group will have to build chemistry on the fly.
 
     Coach Mike Zimmer says he believes the group will respond to the challenge and give the Vikings the upgrade they need up front.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - It took 19 innings and 12 pitchers, but the Boston Red Sox managed to stretch their lead in the American League East this morning.
 
     Hanley Ramirez singled home Mookie Betts in the bottom of the 19th to complete the Bosox's 3-2 marathon victory over the Blue Jays. Betts led off the inning with a double before scoring the first run since Boston tallied twice in the ninth to extend the game.
 
     Betts also doubled in the ninth and scored the tying run on Mitch Moreland's grounder.
 
     The win gives the Red Sox a 3 1/2-game lead over the Yankees.
 
     In Baltimore, the Yankees squandered a 6-1 lead and absorbed a 7-6 loss to the Orioles on Manny Machado's two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth. Machado also sparked the Birds' rally with a homer before Jonathan Schoop and Mark Trumbo went deep.
 
     Did Gregorius and Jacoby Ellsbury provided two-run singles while the Yanks put together a six-run third.
 
     Checking out the rest of the major league finals:
 
     - Jose Ramirez homered twice and the Indians stretched the longest winning streak in the majors this season to 13 games by trouncing the White Sox, 9-4. Seven relievers combined for 8 1/3 scoreless innings after Danny Salazar got just two outs in his return from right elbow inflammation. Austin Jackson and Yan Gomes also homered for the Indians, who lead the AL Central by 11 games and are one victory away from tying the longest winning streak in team history.
 
     - The Diamondbacks tied a team-record with their 12th straight win, scoring twice on a grounder in the 10th inning of a 3-1 decision over the slumping Dodgers. The DBacks had runners on second and third when third baseman Justin Turner fielded a grounder and threw home before the ball got past catcher Yasmani Grandal for an error. Arizona dealt the Dodgers their 10th loss in 11 games and maintained its 6 1/2-game lead over Colorado for the first NL wild-card berth.
 
     - The Pirates scored twice off Carl Edwards Jr. in the bottom of the eighth to pull out a 4-3 win over the NL Central-leading Cubs. Max Moroff tied the game with an RBI single and scored the go-ahead run on a single by David Freese. Jordan Luplow smacked a two-run homer in the Bucs' fourth straight win.
 
     - Chicago's division lead remains 3 1/2 games after Robert Stephenson handled the second-place Brewers to lead the Reds to a 9-3 win over Milwaukee. Stephenson was reached for just one run over six-plus innings and worked out of a no-out, bases-loaded jam in the fourth by striking out three straight hitters. Scooter Gennett hit a three-run homer while Cincinnati scored five times in the seventh to take a 7-1 lead.
 
     - Trevor Story homered and the Rockies moved 2 1/2 games ahead of Milwaukee for the second NL wild-card berth by outscoring the Giants, 9-6. Nolan Arenado picked up his major league lead-tying 112th RBI with a double as part of a four-run sixth. Greg Holland pitched a perfect ninth for his 37th save.
 
     - Jose Martinez homered twice and drove in three as the Cardinals doubled up the Padres, 8-4 to get within four games of the NL Central lead. Harrison Bader put St. Louis ahead for good with a three-run blast in the second inning. Michael Wacha allowed three earned runs over six innings of the Redbirds' third consecutive victory.
 
     - The Nationals were 2-1 winners at Miami behind Stephen Strasburg's six scoreless innings. Strasburg struck out eight and allowed no walks and six hits to move to 12-4. Daniel Murphy hit a solo shot for the Nats, who lead the NL East by a major league-high 17 games.
 
     - Cameron Maybin's tiebreaking, two-run homer also broke up a no-hit bid in the seventh inning as Justin Verlander and the Astros knocked off the Mariners, 3-1. Maybin went deep off Emilio Pagan after starter Ariel Miranda needed 112 pitches to complete six no-hit innings. Verlander was sharp in his first start for the AL West leaders, scattering six hits and allowing just one run while fanning seven over six innings.
 
     - The Angels pulled out an 8-7 win over the Athletics on Ben Revere's RBI single in the 10th inning. C.J. Cron went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and three ribbies to help Los Angeles take over the second AL wild-card berth by a half-game over Minnesota.
 
     - Jake Odorizzi tossed one-hit ball over 6 2/3 shutout innings to lead the Rays past the Twins, 2-1. Odorizzi had a no-hitter until Joe Mauer singled with one out in the seventh. Lucas Duda hit a solo homer and an RBI double off former teammate Bartolo Colon, who took the loss despite allowing only five hits over 6 2/3s.
 
     - John Hicks and JaCoby Jones each homered twice and combined for seven RBIs as the Tigers slammed the Royals, 13-2. Mikie Mahtook and Jose Iglesias also went deep to help Detroit end a five-game skid and drop Kansas City under .500.
 
     - The Phillies crushed the Mets, 9-1 as pitcher Ben Lively delivered a two-run homer and a two-run single while limiting New York to a run and four hits over seven innings. Nick Williams drove in three runs for the Phillies, who tagged Mets ace Jacob deGrom for nine runs - six earned - over 3 2/3 innings.
 
     - The Braves and Rangers were postponed by rain in Atlanta, leading to a day-night doubleheader on Wednesday.

     NEW YORK (AP) - Venus Williams has moved into the U.S. Open semifinals for the first time in seven years. The ninth-seeded Williams rallied in the third set to beat No. 13 Petra Kvitova, 6-3, 6-3, 7-6. The outcome makes the 37-year-old Williams the oldest women's semifinalist at any Grand Slam tournament since Martina Navratilova at Wimbledon in 1994.
 
     Next up for Williams is fellow Sloane Stephens, which guarantees at least one American will compete for the women's title. Stephens is still alive in the draw following a 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 win over No. 16 Anastasija Sevastova.
 
     The unseeded Stephens trailed 3-1 in the third set before reaching the Final Four of a Grand Slam event for the first time in four years.
 
     In the men's bracket, 12th seed Pablo Carreno Busta beat No. 29 Diego Schwartzman 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 to advance to a Grand Slam semifinal for the first time. Carreno Busta still hasn't dropped a set in the tournament, having beaten four straight qualifiers before taking on Schwartzman.
 
     Carreno Busta will face South Africa's Kevin Anderson, who fired 22 aces in a 7-6, 6-7, 6-3, 7-6 win over American Sam Querrey. Anderson's match ended shortly before 2 a.m.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     SAN PEDRO SULA, HONDURAS (AP) - The United States men's soccer team did little to improve its shot at a World Cup berth. The Americans could only play to a 1-1 tie at Honduras and needed Bobby Wood's goal in the 85th minute to avoid a second straight loss. The U.S. trailed for 58 minutes before Wood scored off a scramble.
 
     The U.S. dropped to fourth in the North and Central American and Caribbean region with nine points, ahead of Honduras on goal difference and one point behind Panama with two qualifiers remaining. The top three nations in the six-team group qualify for next year's tournament in Russia.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     NEW YORK (AP) - The Boston Red Sox may have received a little help when they won a series with the New York Yankees at Fenway Park last month.
 
     The New York Times has reported that the Red Sox used a high-tech watch to relay signs by the Yankees catchers during the series. The Times said Major League Baseball began a probe after Yankees general manager Brian Cashman filed a complaint with the commissioner's office that included video. The newspaper said the video showed a member of Boston's training staff looking at his Apple Watch in the dugout and relaying a message to players.
 
     The Red Sox have reportedly admitted to MLB that they improperly used electronic devices to steal signs from their longtime rivals. The Times said the Red Sox told MLB investigators that Boston manager John Farrell, general Dave Dombrowski and other team executives were not aware of the scheme.
 
     Commissioner Rob Manfred said he wanted to get the matter resolved quickly and declined to comment about possible penalties.
 
     The Red Sox took two of three during the series.

     UNDATED (AP) - With Hurricane Irma bearing down on South Florida, the Miami Marlins are allowing families of players and staff to travel with the team on their upcoming road trip. The Marlins host the Nationals today before embarking on a seven-game road trip to Atlanta and Philadelphia. The National Hurricane Center says Irma has been upgraded to a Category 5 storm, the strongest hurricane in the Atlantic basin on record.
 
     In other major league news:
 
     - Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta has undergone an MRI on his sore right hamstring, one day after taking himself out during the third inning of a start in Pittsburgh. Arrieta had been 6-1 with a 1.59 ERA since the All-Star break before Monday's shortened outing. He is slated to pitch Saturday against Milwaukee at Wrigley Field, but manager Joe Maddon says he might rest Arrieta regardless of the MRI results.
 
     - The Pirates have signed manager Clint Hurdle and GM Neal Huntington to four-year contract extensions that will keep them in Pittsburgh through 2021. Huntington took over 10 years ago and hired Hurdle three years later. They oversaw three straight playoff teams from 2013-15, but the club has struggled to stay above .500 this season and current sits at 66-72.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has lost the appeal of his six-game suspension. Arbitrator Harold Henderson made the decision on Tuesday following a 2 1/2-day hearing last week. The punishment stems from a domestic violence case. However, Elliott will be allowed to play in the Cowboys' season opener Sunday against the Giants due to the timing of Henderson's decision.
 
     Meanwhile, U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant said he would rule on Elliott's request for a temporary restraining order by Friday. If the request is denied and no further legal action taken, Elliott's suspension would start in Week 2 at Denver.
 
     Elliott was suspended by Commissioner Roger Goodell after the league concluded he had several physical confrontations last summer with a former girlfriend.
 
     Elsewhere in the NFL:
 
     - The NFL says Sunday's game between the Dolphins and Buccaneers will not be played in Miami this week. If the game is not relocated, it will be postponed until November, when the teams share the same bye week. A decision on when and where to play is expected by Wednesday.
 
     - The Cardinals have signed guard Alex Boone to a one-year contract, days after he was released by Minnesota. Boone started 14 games for the Vikings last year.
 
     - Wide receiver Jeremy Kerley is back with the Jets after accepting a one-year package. The former Jets draft pick had a career-high 64 receptions last season for the 49ers, who released him over the weekend.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     ROME (AP) - Fabio Fognini has apologized for insulting a chair umpire at the U.S. Open and says he is prepared to discuss his mistake with schoolchildren as a lesson. Fognini was kicked out of the New York tournament on Saturday and could be banned from all Grand Slam events.
 
     Fognini tells Italy's Sky TV "I apologize to everyone, not only the chair umpire, to whom I already apologized in New York, but to everyone who felt offended - women above all."
 
     Fognini was fined $24,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct during his singles loss to Stefano Travaglia. Fognini says he had been working on calming his nerves with a mental coach, adding "I understand the gravity of my gesture and I know I did something seriously wrong. It won't happen again."
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     LONDON (AP) - Andy Murray says he is unlikely to play again this season because of his hip injury. The second-ranked Murray says he will miss the upcoming events in Beijing and Shanghai, and most likely the tournaments in Vienna and Paris after that.
 
     In a statement released Wednesday on his Facebook page , Murray said he has consulted with leading hip specialists and said this is the "best decision for my long-term future." Murray said he would still be playing in an exhibition match against Roger Federer in Glasgow on Nov. 7.
 
     Murray pulled out of the U.S. Open with the hip injury, which first flared in the French Open semifinals and affected him at Wimbledon.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - No. 16 Miami's game at Arkansas State on Saturday has been canceled over concerns about Hurricane Irma, a powerful Category 5 storm that forecasters believe will affect Florida this weekend.
 
     Getting to Arkansas for the game would not be the problem for Miami. Getting back to Miami would be the potential issue, and the uncertainty over what will happen with the storm led to the decision to err on the side of caution. The game will not be made up in 2017.
 
     Some members of the Hurricanes' women's basketball team were evacuating on Wednesday to Georgia, to get out of Irma's expected path. Miami has canceled classes until at least Monday.
