Today's Thought

The best we can hope for in this life is a knothole peek at the shining realities ahead. Yet a glimpse is enough. It's enough to convince our hearts that whatever sufferings and sorrows currently assail us aren't worthy of comparison to that which waits over the horizon.

- Joni Eareckson Tada

    NDSU-UND FOOTBALL

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Trey Lance passed for two touchdowns and rushed for two more and North Dakota State defeated North Dakota 38-7 on Saturday for the Bison's 23rd consecutive victory, the longest current streak in Division I.
 
     Lance, who accounted for six touchdowns in the freshman's starting debut against Butler last week, was 11-of-15 passing for 162 yards and rushed for a game-high 95 yards on 16 carries against the Fighting Hawks (1-1).
 
     Lance's 2-yard toss to Ben Ellefson gave the FCS top-ranked Bison (2-0) a 21-7 halftime lead. Lance's 14-yard run made it 38-7 with under 10 minutes to play.
 
     NDSU outgained North Dakota 428-216.
 
     This was the 112th meeting between the instate rivals but the first since Sept. 19, 2015, when NDSU won in the first Division I matchup between the programs.
 
     North Dakota is playing as an FCS independent and will join NDSU and rest of the Missouri Valley Football Conference in 2020.

    MINNESOTA TWINS

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Mitch Garver hit his second homer of the game, a three-run shot, in the seventh inning, helping Minnesota rally past the Cleveland Indians 5-3 on Saturday night hours after the Twins learned pitcher Michael Pineda had been suspended for violating MLB's drug policy.
 
     Garver set a Twins single-season record for home runs by a catcher with a solo shot that opened the scoring in the first inning. He capped the Twins' comeback with his 28th of the season, sending the pitch from Nick Goody into the first row of flowers in the right field overhang.
 
     Minnesota has a 5 1/2-game lead over Cleveland in the AL Central after the teams split the first two games of the series. The Twins' magic number is 14; they've won 11 of 14.
 
     Pineda was suspended for 60 games on Saturday after testing positive for a banned diuretic. He won't be allowed to pitch for the Twins if they reach the playoffs.
 
     Zack Littell (4-0) pitched a scoreless inning in relief of Jake Odorizzi, who struck out 10 in 5 1/3 innings for the Twins. Taylor Rogers earned his 25th save.
 
     Indians reliever Adam Cimber (5-3) gave up hits to Willians Astudillo and Jonathan Schoop to open the seventh. Schoop tied the game with an RBI triple high off the right-center field wall. Oliver Perez walked Max Kepler ahead of Garver's homer.
 
     Earl Battey previously held the Twins single-season record for home runs by a catcher with 26, set in 1963.
 
     Yasiel Puig doubled twice for Cleveland after he failed to run out a ground ball in the fourth inning. The Indians have lost six of eight and had been 31-2 when leading after six innings, entering the day with the best bullpen ERA in the majors.
 
     Cleveland entered the pivotal three-game series with hopes of winning a division title being boosted by a strong weekend. The Indians had won five of the previous six games against Minnesota and eight of the 15 games this season.
 
     They started the day a half-game behind Oakland for the second wild-card spot.
 
     TRAINER'S ROOM
 
     Twins: DH Nelson Cruz said he had no pain in his left wrist after leaving Friday's game early. It's the same wrist that has a ruptured tendon he is playing with. Manager Rocco Baldelli said Cruz was an option to play Saturday, but held him out of the starting lineup as a "coach's decision." Cruz was later ejected after yelling at home plate umpire Laz Diaz from the dugout following a called third strike on C.J. Cron. ... An MRI showed OF Jake Cave has a mild groin strain and wasn't available Saturday. ... Baldelli said RHP Kyle Gibson (10-day injured list) is doing well as he deals with ulcerative colitis and Gibson is expected to return to the rotation during the upcoming home series against Washington.
 
     UP NEXT
 
     Indians: Mike Clevinger (10-2, 2.71 ERA) starts the finale of the three-game series this afternoon. Clevinger is 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA in two starts against Minnesota this season.
 
     Twins: Randy Dobnak will be the opener for the Twins.

    TWINS-PINEDA SUSPENSION

     NEW YORK (AP) - Minnesota Twins pitcher Michael Pineda has been suspended 60 games after testing positive for a banned diuretic. Major League Baseball announced Saturday that Pineda was suspended immediately for violating its drug policy.
 
     The 6-foot-7, 280-pound Pineda says in a statement he took an over-the-counter medication given to him by an acquaintance to help him manage his weight. The pills contained hydrochlorothiazide, a diuretic that can mask other substances.
 
     Pineda apologized to the Twins, his teammates, his family and fans for his "error in judgment" and said he "never intended to cheat the system, other players or opposing teams."
 
     Pineda, who went 11-5 with a 4.01 ERA, will miss the first-place Twins' final 21 games plus any postseason games. He will forfeit $989,247 of his $8 million salary. He is eligible for free agency after the season and would serve the remainder of the suspension next year.

     T25 FOOTBALL-SCHEDULE

     MLB-SCHEDULE

     UNDATED (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals have added another full game to their lead in the NL Central, thanks to a little help from the league's reigning MVP.

     Christian Yelich delivered an RBI double with two out in the bottom of the ninth to complete the Brewers' comeback in a 3-2 win over the Chicago Cubs. Anthony Rizzo worked out a bases-loaded walk in the eighth to give Chicago a 2-1 lead, but Milwaukee quickly knotted the score on Yasmani Grandal's solo homer.

     Gio Gonzalez gave up a run and two hits over five innings before Milwaukee pulled within three games of the Cubs for the second NL wild card. Chicago also saw its wild-card lead shrink to 1 1/2 games over Arizona.

     Meanwhile, the division-leading Cardinals are 3 1/2 ahead of Cubs after slumping slugger Marcell Ozuna crushed a three-run homer in a 10-1 romp over the Pirates. The cleanup hitter also walked twice after entering the game in a 2-for-35 skid.

     Adam Wainwright went 2-for-4 and limited Pittsburgh to a run and six hits over seven innings as the Redbirds won for the seventh time in 10 games.

     Elsewhere on major league diamonds:

     - Rookie Alex Young scattered two hits while striking out 12 over eight innings of the Diamondbacks' 11th win in 12 games, a 2-0 shutout of the Reds.

Ketel Marte ut Arizona ahead with an RBI single in the fourth before scoring on Christian Walker's grounder later in the inning.

     - Josh Donaldson and Ozzie Albies each homered for the second straight day as the Braves picked up their ninth straight win, 5-4 over Washington.

     - The Phillies earned a 5-0 win over the Mets behind Drew Smyly, who struck out six and scattered four hits over seven innings. Cesar Hernadez led off the game with a homer and added an RBI single that sparked Philadelphia's four-run fourth off losing pitcher Marcus Stroman. Corey Dickerson added a two-run double for the Phils, who are three games behind the Cubs for the second NL wild card.

     - Tyler Beede scattered four hits over five frames before six relievers combined to throw four innings of hitless ball in the Giants' 1-0 shutout of the NL West-leading Dodgers. San Francisco's pitching protected the lead after Mike Yastrzemski scored on a Kevin Pillar grounder in the top of the first. Los Angeles will try to avoid a three-game sweep on Sunday.

     - Mitch Garver's second homer of the day was a go-ahead three-run shot in the seventh inning of the Twins' 5-3 comeback win over the Indians.

The Twins bounced back from Friday's loss to Cleveland and regained a 6  1/2-game lead over the Indians atop the AL Central.

     - Josh Reddick's sacrifice fly broke a 1-1 tie in the seventh inning and sent the Astros past the Mariners, 2-1. Alex Bregman tied the game in the sixth with his 34th home run before Reddick allowed Justin Verlander to improve to 18-5. Verlander allowed one run and four hits with seven strikeouts over seven innings of his first start since no-hitting the Blue Jays last Sunday.

     - J.A. Happ struck out seven and allowed two hits over 6 1/3 shutout innings of the Yankees' 5-1 victory over the Red Sox.

     - Daniel Robertson drove in two runs and Travis d'Arnaud provided a tiebreaking, sacrifice fly in the eighth inning of the Rays' 5-3 victory against Toronto.

The Rays won for the ninth time in 10 games and sent the Blue Jays to their sixth consecutive loss.

     - The Athletics ripped the Tigers, 10-2 behind Chris Bassitt, who struck out a career-high 11 for six innings. Matt Chapman smacked his 32nd home run, Matt Olson went 4-for-4 with his 29th homer and Jurickson Profar hit his 20th round-tripper. Oakland is 1  1/2 games ahead of Cleveland for the second AL wild card, and one game behind Tampa Bay for the top wild-card position.

     - Shohei Ohtani belted a three-run home run and collected a career-high five RBIs in the Angels' 8-7 decision over the White Sox. Chicago lost for the 10th time in 12 games despite Jose Abreu's three-run blast and four ribbies.

     TENNIS-US OPEN

     NEW YORK (AP) - Serena Williams' bid for a record-tying 24th Grand Slam singles title will continue for at least four more months.

     Bianca Andreescu became the first Canadian to win a major championship by downing Williams, 6-3, 7-5 at the U.S. Open. The 19-year-old Andreescu took charge early in the U.S. Open final, going up by a set and two breaks before holding off a late charge by Williams.

     Andreescu went up 5-1 in the second set and served for the victory, but Williams fought back by winning the next four games. The Canadian regained the lead and closed out the match by breaking Williams.

     The 37-year-old Williams has lost her last four Grand Slam final appearances, including the 2018 U.S. Open. She was trying to tie Margaret Court's record for major titles.

     NFL-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - The Oakland Raiders have had enough of Antonio Brown, but the New England Patriots are willing to take a chance.

     The wide receiver was cut by the Raiders after requesting his release in the latest turn of a dramatic first and only summer with the team. It didn't take long for Brown to find another team as the Patriots gave him a one-year deal worth up to $15 million, with $9 million guaranteed.

     Brown had been upset about his latest team fine from Oakland over an outburst at practice at general manager Mike Mayock. That fine allowed the Raiders to void more than $29 million in guarantees over the next two years of Brown's contract.

     Oakland instead decided to cut ties entirely without Brown ever playing for the team. The Raiders had been counting heavily Brown after trading a third and fifth-round pick to Pittsburgh for the game's most prolific receiver in March. They also gave him a new three-year contract worth $50.1 million that now is void following the release.

     In other NFL news:

     - Falcons receiver Julio Jones finally got his long-awaited contract extension, agreeing to a three-year, $66 million deal. The extension locks in Jones through the 2023 season.

     - The Cowboys have released running back Alfred Morris to make room on the roster for Ezekiel Elliott for Sunday's season opener against the Giants. The move Saturday came three days after Elliott signed a $90 million, six-year extension to end the two-time rushing champion's holdout, which lasted the entire preseason.

     - Dolphins offensive lineman Jesse Davis has signed a contract extension through the 2022 season. Davis played every one of Miami's 920 offensive snaps in 2018.

     DUKE-WILLIAMSON-AVENATTI

     DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Duke says an investigation has found no evidence that former basketball star Zion Williamson received improper benefits. School spokesman Michael Schoenfeld said in a statement Saturday that a "thorough and objective" probe led by investigators outside the athletic department found "no evidence to support any allegation" that would have jeopardized Williamson's eligibility.

     Duke athletic director Kevin White said in April that the school would investigate after lawyer Michael Avenatti accused Nike of paying Williamson's mother to convince him to attend a college affiliated with the shoe company.
