     ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Eduardo Escobar had three hits and three RBIs, Brian Dozier and Ehire Adrianza both homered, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Tampa Bay Rays 10-6 today. Minnesota ended a three-game losing streak and moved into a tie with the Los Angeles Angels for the second AL wild-card spot.
     The Twins scored three runs in the seventh to take the lead for good. Dozier, who hit his 29th homer leading off the game, was walked by reliever Steve Cishek (2-1) to open the inning. Jorge Polanco then bunted and Cishek threw wildly past first base, allowing Dozier to come all the way around to score for a 7-6 lead with Polanco advancing to third. One out later, Escobar singled to right-center to drive in Polanco. Robbie Grossman doubled off Austin Pruitt and pinch-hitter Joe Mauer was intentionally walked to load the bases, and Max Kepler followed with a run-scoring grounder.
     Taylor Rogers (6-3) pitched 1 1/3 innings for the win.
     Evan Longoria, Lucas Duda and Kevin Kiermaier homered for the Rays.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Lynx star Lindsay Whalen has returned to practice after missing the final 12 games of the regular season with a broken left hand. Whalen practiced today and plans to be ready when the Lynx play in the second round next week. The top-seeded Lynx have a bye in the first round, so Whalen has a week to practice and get back into the flow.
     The Lynx went 7-5 without Whalen as Renee Montgomery filled in as the starting point guard. They were 4-5 in the first nine games without her before winning the final three. Whalen will be back in time for the Lynx to play in Williams Arena, the place she called home in college at the University of Minnesota. The Lynx will play there while Target Center renovations are finished.

     MIAMI (AP) - The NFL says the Miami Dolphins' season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be postponed until Nov. 19 because of Hurricane Irma. The game can be moved to Week 11 because that had been a bye week for both teams. NFL officials earlier announced the game would not be played in Miami this week, and then decided against moving it to a neutral site.
     Both teams had said switching the game to Nov. 19 was less than ideal because it means playing the entire season without a break. The Dolphins will now open Sept. 17 at the Los Angeles Chargers, and their first home game won't be until Oct. 8 against the Tennessee Titans.
     In other moves related to Irma:
     - No. 16 Miami's game at Arkansas State on Saturday has been canceled over concerns about Hurricane Irma. Getting to Arkansas for the game wouldn't 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 won't be made up in 2017.
     - No. 10 Florida State has moved its game against Louisiana-Monroe up to a noon kickoff on Saturday out of concern for Hurricane Irma's expected wrath. The Seminoles were originally set to play a night game Saturday.
     - No. 22 Florida is moving its game against Northern Colorado on Saturday up to a noon kickoff from 7:30 p.m.
     - FIU's home opener will get played, a long way from home. The Panthers will meet Alcorn State on Friday night in Birmingham, Alabama. The game was scheduled to be played Saturday night in Miami.
     - The Florida Panthers are about to take their first road trip of the season, before the NHL season even starts. They're taking some players, staff and other team employees to Boston on Friday, long before Irma is expected to hit. Panthers CEO Matthew Caldwell told The Miami Herald that the team is even prepared to open training camp in Massachusetts if necessary. The team earlier canceled plans to play in a prospect tournament this weekend in Estero, Florida. The Panthers' home arena, the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida, will be a tactical operation site for Florida Power and Light during the storm.
     - Gulfstream Park has canceled racing from Thursday through at least Sunday because of Hurricane Irma's expected arrival in Florida. The track in Hallandale Beach, about 20 miles north of downtown Miami, says it plans to resume racing on Wednesday, Sept. 13 - and even that date is tentative for now.

     ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals have acquired right-handed reliever Juan Nicasio from Philadelphia in exchange for minor league infielder Eliezer Alvarez.
     The 31-year-old Nicasio had joined the Phillies last week on a waiver claim from the Pittsburgh Pirates. He is 3-5 with a 2.79 ERA in a National League-leading 67 games this season. Nicasio has struck out 61 batters in 61.1 innings of work this season, walked 18 and held opponents to a .218 average.
     The Cardinals entered Wednesday just three games out of the NL wild-card lead and four games back in the NL Central.
     Nicasio is a free agent at the end of the season and would not be eligible for postseason play. In 260 career games (82 starts), the Dominican is 35-37 with a 4.60 ERA in 618.2 innings pitched.

     UNDATED (AP) - The NFL and the players' union have found no evidence of deviation by New England's medical staff from the league's concussion protocol regarding Tom Brady last season.
     League spokesman Brian McCarthy said in a statement Wednesday that Brady released his medical records for review as part of the process. McCarthy said the review also identified no evidence that Brady sustained a concussion or reported signs or symptoms consistent with one in 2016.
     The NFL and the NFL Players' Association completed an evaluation of film of every Patriots game last season, as well as reports from independent neurotrauma consultants and spotters assigned to those games.
     Brady's wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, told "CBS This Morning" in May that Brady played through a concussion on his way to a fifth Super Bowl title. Brady said in August he preferred to keep his medical history private, adding that he wasn't blind to issues such as CTE.
     In other NFL news:
     - Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor has been cleared from concussion protocol and coach Sean McDermott says he will start in the season opener against the New York Jets on Sunday. Taylor has been out since being hurt during the second series of Buffalo's 13-9 preseason loss at Baltimore on Aug. 26. With Taylor's status previously uncertain, the Bills faced the possibility of starting rookie Nathan Peterman. Buffalo also shuffled its quarterbacks this week by signing free agent Joe Webb and placing T.J. Yates on injured reserve. Yates also sustained a concussion against Baltimore.
     - Browns rookie defensive end Myles Garrett sustained an ankle injury in practice, leaving his status for the season opener in doubt. Garrett, the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, did not make it through the complete practice on Wednesday.
     - No. 2 overall draft pick Mitchell Trubisky will open the season as the Chicago Bears' No. 2 quarterback. Coach John Fox says Trubisky will back up Mike Glennon when the Bears host the defending NFC champion Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. The Bears had said they would treat this as sort of a redshirt season with Trubisky behind Glennon and veteran Mark Sanchez. But after starting 13 games at North Carolina and working primarily out of the shotgun, the rookie has come along quicker than anticipated.
     - New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was back on the field and stretching with his teammates for the first time since injuring an ankle more than two weeks ago. Beckham's status for the game has been in doubt since the injury. He rode a stationary bike Monday while the team stretched.
     - The New York Jets have signed former Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Neal Sterling and waived wide receiver Damore'ea Stringfellow. Sterling has 12 career catches for 110 yards in 19 games. The converted wide receiver was waived by the Jaguars on Sunday.
     - Cam Newton is the latest NFL player to voice his support of free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, saying it's "unfair" that he's not on a roster. The Carolina Panthers quarterback says Kaepernick is "absolutely" good enough to be a starting quarterback. Some players believe Kaepernick has been blackballed by teams for choosing to kneel during the national anthem.
     - Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett is accusing Las Vegas police of racially motivated excessive force after he says he was threatened at gunpoint following a report that shots were heard at a casino hotel. Police later attributed the report of gunfire to the sound of velvet rope stands falling over. Bennett was released without charges.
     - The NFL has hired 21 officials to work on a full-time basis, including four referees. Overall, there are representatives of all seven on-field officiating positions. Both the league and the officials' union agreed to experiment with full-time officials as part of the current collective bargaining agreement.
