The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed Andrew Wiggins to a new contract extension....

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed Andrew Wiggins to a new contract extension. The Timberwolves announced today that the two sides had reached agreement on a multiyear contract. Terms were not disclosed, but owner Glen Taylor said in August that he had offered Wiggins a five-year max contract worth $148 million. It put a big piece of business to rest after the situation dragged out for most of the summer while Wiggins moved from one agency to another.
 
     Wiggins averaged 23.6 points per game in his third season in the league. The former No. 1 overall pick has cemented himself as one of the building blocks of an up-and-coming franchise. Along with Karl-Anthony Towns and Jimmy Butler, Wiggins is expected to help the Timberwolves end a 13-season playoff drought this year.

     CHICAGO (AP) - Washington Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg has started Game 4 of the NL Division Series against the Chicago Cubs. The Nationals announced several hours before this afternoon's scheduled first pitch that they were going with Strasburg, hoping he can send the series back to Washington for a Game 5 on Thursday.
 
     Manager Dusty Baker made a surprising announcement after Tuesday's rain postponement that he was sticking with Tanner Roark rather than going with Strasburg on regular rest. He mentioned an illness going around his team, which he attributed to the weather, air conditioning at their hotel and Wrigley Field, and the "time of the year for mold around Chicago."
 
     Strasburg took a no-hitter into the sixth in Game 1 but got outdueled by Kyle Hendricks in a Cubs' win.

     CLEVELAND (AP) - It's all or nothing when the Cleveland Indians host the New York Yankees in the decisive Game 5 of the AL Division Series tonight. Corey Kluber, considered the favorite for the AL Cy Young Award, starts for Cleveland and tries to atone for getting hit hard in Game 2. CC Sabathia pitches for the wild-card Yankees.
 
     Indians cleanup hitter Edwin Encarnacion is back in Cleveland's lineup for Game 5 after sitting out two games with a sprained ankle. Encarnacion, who hit 38 homers and drove in 107 runs during his first regular season with Cleveland, injured his ankle in the first inning of Game 2 and couldn't play in New York, where the Indians lost twice.

     BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Red Sox have fired manager John Farrell after the team's second straight loss in the AL Division Series. The Red Sox announced the move today less than 48 hours after they eliminated from the playoffs with a 5-4 loss to the Houston Astros. Farrell's contract had been scheduled to run through the 2018 season.
 
     Farrell managed the team to its eighth World Series title in 2013, his first season. But he found himself under a harsh spotlight each of the last two seasons after exits in the division series of the postseason.

     UNDATED (AP) - Rookie DeShone Kizer has been replaced as Cleveland's quarterback by backup Kevin Hogan, who will be the 28th different starter for the Browns since 1999. Hogan will start this week at Houston.
 
     Coach Hue Jackson benched Kizer at halftime of Sunday's loss to the New York Jets for Hogan, who threw a pair of touchdown passes and moved the offense. Kizer, a second-round pick from Notre Dame, leads the league with nine interceptions, four inside the red zone.
 
     In other NFL news:
 
     - The Detroit Lions have put defensive tackle Haloti Ngata on injured reserve. Ngata left Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers with an elbow injury. He had two sacks in five starts this year. The Lions signed defensive tackle Caraun Reid and defensive end Datone Jones. They also cut linebacker Thurston Armbrister on Wednesday.
 
     - The New York Giants have suspended cornerback Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie. Coach McAdoo announced the suspension after practice today without giving a reason.
 
     - The Dallas Cowboys have released cornerback Nolan Carroll, the second significant free agent let go this season. Carroll left a loss at Denver in Week 2 with a concussion and didn't play again before Wednesday's move. The eighth-year player practiced last week but was inactive in a loss to Green Bay.
 
     - Former Eagles wide receiver Ben Hawkins died on Monday. He was 73. A third-round pick of the Eagles in 1966, Hawkins spent eight of his nine NFL seasons in Philadelphia, where he played 102 games from 1966-73. He is tied for ninth in team history in receiving TDs, 10th in receiving yards and 19th in receptions.
