TODAY'S THOUGHT

We can always find something to be thankful for, and there may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations which appear dark and frowning.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jason Castro homered twice, Brian Dozier was a double from the cycle and the Minnesota Twins pounded the San Diego Padres 16-0 on Tuesday night.
 
     Minnesota hit a season-high seven home runs, setting a Target Field record for most homers in a game, to back another strong start from Kyle Gibson. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Twins set a major league record by homering in each of the first seven innings with Jorge Polanco, Eddie Rosario, Eduardo Escobar and Kennys Vargas adding to the total.
 
     Gibson (10-10) pitched six innings with four hits and six strikeouts. He has allowed two runs or fewer in five straight starts for Minnesota, which maintained its hold on the second wild card spot in the American League.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Seimone Augustus scored 24 points and Sylvia Fowles added 18 to help the Minnesota Lynx roll to a 101-81 victory over the Washington Mystics in Game 1 of the WNBA semifinals on Tuesday night.
 
     Augustus made 11 of 17 shots and the Lynx looked plenty sharp after a week off and playing in an unfamiliar arena. The Lynx will play all of their playoff games at the University of Minnesota's Williams Arena after playing the regular season at Xcel Energy Center, home of the Minnesota Wild.
 
     Elena Delle Donne had 17 points for the Mystics, who had a quick turnaround after beating the Liberty in New York on Sunday. After setting a playoff record with nine 3-pointers in the victory over New York on Sunday, Mystics guard Kristi Toliver scored just three points on 1-for-7 shooting.

     Elsewhere in the WNBA:
 
     - Nneka Ogwumike scored 19 points to lead five starters in double figures, and the Los Angeles Sparks opened defense of their WNBA championship with a 79-66 victory over the Phoenix Mercury in Game 1 of the semifinals. Candace Parker added 15 points while playing with five fouls. Ogwumike overcame four fouls. Chelsea Gray had 13 points, Odyssey Sims 12 and Alana Beard 11.
 
     Leilani Mitchell led the Mercury with 19 points and made five 3-pointers, both career playoff highs. Brittney Griner added 18 points before fouling out with 4:44 left in the game. Diana Taurasi went 2 of 10 from the floor for a career playoff low six points.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Shabazz Muhammad has agreed to return to the Minnesota Timberwolves on a one-year deal. The Wolves and Muhammad agreed to terms on the veteran minimum deal on Tuesday.  
 
     Muhammad has spent all four of his NBA seasons with the Timberwolves. He averaged 9.9 points last season and was a restricted free agent when the summer began. The Wolves eventually rescinded their rights to him to make him an unrestricted free agent. He never got the long-term offer for which he was hoping.
 
     It was an important move the Wolves, who were thin on the wing behind starters Andrew Wiggins and Jimmy Butler. ESPN first reported the agreement.

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

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins will start the 2018 season in Baltimore to begin a five-game road trip, before their home opener April 5 against Seattle. The schedule announced Tuesday has the Twins playing 10 straight games at Target Field April 5-15 with one off day built in. Then they'll take two home games to Puerto Rico to play Cleveland April 17-18.
 
     The Twins have home and away two-game sets against Pittsburgh and St. Louis. They also have a pair of three-game series against Milwaukee, home May 18-20 and away July 2-4. The holiday-week set against the Brewers concludes a nine-game Lake Michigan trip starting in Chicago with three games each against the White Sox and Cubs from June 26-July 1.
 
     Cincinnati visits April 27-29, its first trip to Minnesota since 2001.

     CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland Indians share a record with a team celebrated by Hollywood. "Moneyball" has its sequel.
 
     Following a familiar script of scoring first, playing strong defense and riding dominant pitching, the Indians extended their winning streak to 20 games and matched the AL mark held by the 2002 Oakland Athletics, beating the Detroit Tigers 2-0 on Tuesday night.
 
     Cleveland's streak, which began on Aug. 24 in Boston, is tied for the majors' second-longest in 82 years - and the Indians show no signs of stopping.
 
     Corey Kluber (16-4) strengthened his Cy Young Award case with a four-hitter as Cleveland joined the 2002 A's, 1935 Chicago Cubs (21) and 1916 New York Giants (26) as the only teams to win at least 20 in a row.
 
     In other games:
 
     - Adeiny Hechavarria hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning off Sonny Gray and the Tampa Bay Rays, playing as the home team in a series relocated to Citi Field because of Hurricane Irma, beat the New York Yankees 2-1. Tampa Bay has split the first two games of the set held at the home of the New York Mets.
 
     - Richard Urena singled home the winning run in the ninth inning and the Toronto Blue Jays rallied to beat Baltimore 3-2, handing the slumping Orioles their sixth straight loss. Facing Orioles closer Zach Britton (2-1), who had recorded the final out of the eighth Kevin Pillar drew a leadoff walk in the ninth and went to third on Teoscar Hernandez's single. One out later, Pillar scored when Luke Maile singled off the glove of third baseman Manny Machado.
 
     - Freddie Freeman hit a three-run home run off Gio Gonzalez and Julio Teheran threw seven shutout innings as the Atlanta Braves cruised to an 8-0 victory over the Washington Nationals, who were fresh off clinching the NL East.  Gonzalez (14-7) allowed five earned runs on seven hits in five innings and struck out eight. The left-hander did guarantee his $12 million option for next season with his first out of the game as he reached 180 innings this season.
 
     - Kris Bryant hit a three-run homer, Jose Quintana pitched seven effective innings and the Chicago Cubs beat the New York Mets 8-3 for a sorely needed victory. Quintana (10-11) also helped himself at the plate with a pair of sacrifices, including a perfectly placed safety squeeze that drove in Kyle Schwarber in the fourth. Quintana got another bunt down in the sixth, sending Javier Baez to third ahead of Ben Zobrist's RBI single.
 
     - Nick Williams hit a walk-off, two-out double in the bottom of the 15th inning, scoring Aaron Altherr as Philadelphia came from behind to defeat the Miami Marlins 9-8. Innings-wise, it was the longest game of the season for the Phillies and second-longest for the Marlins. Williams had three hits and reached base five times in the marathon game. He has 47 RBIs since being called up the week before the All-Star break.
 
     - Mookie Betts hit two home runs and a two-run triple, and the Boston Red Sox rolled past the Oakland Athletics 11-1. The Red Sox, winners of five of their last six, pushed their American League East lead back to four games over the Yankees following New York's loss to 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay. Betts went 3 for 5 with six RBIs. He's driven in three runs or more in a team-high 11 games.
 
     - Ben Gamel and Kyle Seager both hit three-run homers and the Seattle Mariners beat the Texas Rangers 10-3 in a matchup of wild card hopefuls. Texas (72-72) and Seattle (72-73) have split the first two games of their four-game series. The Rangers dropped three games behind Minnesota for the American League's second wild card, while the Mariners remained 3 1/2 back after the Twins also won.
 
     - Paul DeJong homered, Yadier Molina drove in three runs and the streaking St. Louis Cardinals outslugged the Cincinnati Reds 13-4 The Cardinals have won four straight and six of their last seven to stay two games behind the first-place Chicago Cubs in the NL Central.
 
     - Eric Thames hit his 29th home run, Domingo Santana went 3 for 4 with two RBIs and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2. The Brewers kept pace with the NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs who defeated the New York Mets.
 
     - Brandon Moss hit a grand slam in the first inning for his third consecutive game with a homer, powering the Kansas City Royals to a 4-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox.
 
     - Justin Verlander pitched eight innings of one-hit ball in a stellar second start for Houston, and the Astros snapped their four-game skid with a 1-0 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.
 
     - Carlos Gonzalez, heating up for the stretch run after a subpar season at the plate, homered twice and the Colorado Rockies won their sixth game in a row, beating the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-2 to tighten the race for the National League's top wild card. The Rockies, who won their eighth straight road game, pull within three games of Arizona for the first NL wild card.
 
    - Clayton Kershaw pitched NL-leading Los Angeles to its first win in nearly two weeks, helping the Dodgers snap the club's worst skid since moving West at 11 games by beating the San Francisco Giants 5-3 on Tuesday night. The Dodgers' losing streak was their worst in 25 years, topping a pair of 10-gamers in L.A. from 1961 and '92. The 1944 Brooklyn team lost 16 straight games.

     CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Star linebackers Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher and game-breaking wide receiver Randy Moss are among 11 first-year eligible players for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
 
     Also part of the 108 early nominees who are eligible for the first time, having been retired for five years when the class is chosen next February, are cornerback Ronde Barber, wideouts Donald Driver and Steve Smith (former Giant, Eagle and Ram), offensive linemen Steve Hutchinson, Matt Birk, and Jeff Saturday, and defensive linemen Richard Seymour and Kyle Vanden Bosch.
 
     The roster of nominees consists of 53 offensive players, 38 defensive players, five special teams players and 12 coaches. Modern era nominees will be reduced to 25 semifinalists in November and, from there, to 15 finalists in January.
 
     During Super Bowl week, 48 voters will discuss the finalists, plus senior nominees Robert Brazile and Jerry Kramer and contributors nominee Bobby Beathard. There is no set number for any class of enshrinees, though between four and eight new members will be selected.
 
     Returning finalists from 2017 are receivers Isaac Bruce and Terrell Owens; center Kevin Mawae; tackles Tony Boselli and Joe Jacoby; guard Alan Faneca; safeties John Lynch and Brian Dawkins; cornerback Ty Law; and coach Don Coryell.
 
     Enshrinement will be next August in Canton.

     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 Tuesday 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.
 
     In other NFL developments:
 
     - The Eagles have signed kicker Jake Elliott off Cincinnati's practice squad and placed Caleb Sturgis on injured reserve. Elliott was a fifth-round pick in April after graduating from Memphis as the school's all-time leading scorer with 445 points. He made 81 of 104 field goals. His 77.9 percent success rate is a school record. Longtime Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski also went to Memphis. Sturgis injured his left hip on the opening kickoff in a 30-17 win at Washington on Sunday
 
     - 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.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - About a dozen Michigan State players are expected to travel to Texas later this week to help relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
 
     Offensive lineman Tyler Higby, who is from Houston, says the players will all be staying at his house and spending a couple days helping the community. The Spartans have an open date on their schedule this weekend. Higby says the support from his teammates means a lot, since players don't get much time off during the season. He expects to head down Friday and return Sunday. Coach Mark Dantonio says his players are making the trip for the right reasons.
