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.

    MINNESOTA LYNX

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Napheesa Collier scored 19 points, Damiris Dantas had 17 points and a career-high eight assists, and the Minnesota Lynx beat the Dallas Wings 86-70 on Thursday night.
 
     Minnesota scored the first five points of the game, never trailed and led by as many as 23 points to end a three-game losing streak. The Wings trailed by at least 15 points the entire second half.
 
     Danielle Robinson added 14 points and Sylvia Fowles scored 12 for Minnesota (14-15). Fowles and Collier combined for 24 first-half points as Minnesota led 47-32.
 
     Minnesota, trying for its ninth straight trip to the playoffs, is tied with Phoenix for seventh in the WNBA standings, four games ahead of Indiana for the final two spots.

    GREEN BAY-PRESEASON

     WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Daniel Carson kicked a 33-yard field goal with 8 seconds remaining, and the Oakland Raiders earned a bizarre 22-21 preseason victory over the Green Bay Packers Thursday night on a field that was shortened to 80 yards over concerns about player safety.
 
     End zones were marked by bright orange pylons at the 10-yard lines and there were no kickoffs. The field was reconfigured because of concerns about the areas where the goal posts for the CFL's Winnipeg franchise are usually located.
 
     Before warmups, game officials and staff from both clubs were on the field examining the patches of turf that covered the spots where the goal posts for 110-yard CFL games were removed. The goal posts were moved from spots that would have been inside the NFL end zones.
 
     Packers coach Matt LaFleur decided to sit 33 players, including star quarterback Aaron Rodgers and running back Aaron Jones. Rodgers hasn't played in the preseason.
 
     Oakland didn't play starters including quarterback Derek Carr or receiver Antonio Brown.
 
     The Raiders decided to move one of their two home exhibition games to Winnipeg in a move that saved them $500,000 in rent at the Oakland Coliseum. The team is planning to move to Las Vegas in 2020.
 
     It was the first NFL game in Canada since the Buffalo Bills faced the Atlanta Falcons in December 2013 to finish a run of eight games in Toronto.
 
     Tim Boyle, Rodgers' backup, threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Trevor Davis and a 26-yarder to Jake Kumerow. Tra Carson ran for a touchdown for the Packers, and Green Bay led 21-10 at halftime.
 
     The Raiders' Nathan Peterman threw two touchdown passes, including a 17-yarder to De'Mornay Pierson-El in the fourth quarter that cut Green Bay's lead to 21-19. His 2-point conversion attempt was intercepted. Peterman finished 23 of 37 for 210 yards.
 
     UP NEXT
 
     Packers: Conclude their preseason schedule by hosting the Kansas City Chiefs next Thursday night.
 
     Raiders: At Seattle next Thursday night.

     MLB-SCHEDULE

     UNDATED (AP) - The Atlanta Braves will carry a six-game division lead into their weekend series against the New York Mets. The NL East leaders picked up their fifth straight win by rallying for a 3-2 decision over the Marlins. Ronald Acuna Jr. won it with a walk-off, RBI single in the bottom of the ninth, one inning after Freddie Freeman tied it with a solo blast.

     Braves starter Mike Soroka allowed two runs over seven innings to put his ERA at 2.41, but he's winless in his last seven starts. Mark Melancon worked a scoreless ninth to get the victory.

     The Nationals stayed six games behind Atlanta by whipping the Pirates for the third time in four days, 7-1. Max Scherzer gave up a run and four hits over four innings in his first start since landing on the injured list with a back issue four weeks ago.

     Howie Kendrick was 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and three RBIs. Anthony Rendon added a solo shot in the Nats' ninth win in 11 games.

     Elsewhere on major league diamonds:

     - Kyle Hendricks worked seven strong innings and the Cubs made the most out of two hits in their fifth consecutive win, 1-0 over the Giants. Hendricks struck out seven and gave up only three hits to help the Cubs keep their half-game lead over St. Louis atop the NL Central. Chicago's hits came in the fourth inning as Jason Heyward delivered a leadoff single and scored on Anthony Rizzo's single.

     - The Cardinals kept pace with the Cubs by erasing deficits of 2-0 and 5-2 in a 6-5 victory against the Rockies. Dexter Fowler supplied the go-ahead, two-run homer in the seventh after Marcell Ozuna Paul DeJong hit two-run shots. The Redbirds stormed back following Nolan Arenado's tiebreaking, three-run blast in the fifth.

     - The Mets completed a three-game sweep as Noah Syndergaard fired two-hit ball over six innings of a 2-0 shutout of the Indians, a game that was called because of rain in the bottom of the eighth. Syndergaard struck out five and retired his first 16 hitters before Tyler Naquin blooped a single to center. Wilson Ramos extended his hitting streak to 16 games with a two-run double in the fourth to help the Mets stay within 1 1/2 games of the second NL wild card. The Indians are 3 1/2 games behind the AL Central-leading Twins.

     - The Dodgers have a magic number of 14 for winning the NL West after they scored three times in the bottom of the ninth to come away with a 3-2 triumph over the Blue Jays. Cory Seager tied it with a two-run double and scored the walk-off run on a single by Kike Hernandez. The Dodgers have a five-game home winning streak and a whopping 20 1/2-game division lead going into this weekend's big series against the Yankees.

     - Gerrit Cole tossed two-hit ball while striking out 12 over seven shutout innings to lead the Astros' 6-3 win against the Tigers. Cole is 11-0 with a 1.84 ERA in his past 15 starts and has 238 strikeouts this season, one shy of teammate and league leader Justin Verlander. Alex Bregman belted a two-run homer and Michael Brantley went 3-for-4 with a two-run single to stretch his hitting streak to 15 games.

     - Tanner Roark pitched into the seventh and the Athletics reached Masahira Tanaka for five runs over six innings of a 5-3 victory over the Yankees. Roark struck out seven and allowed two runs over 6 1/3 frames to help Oakland complete a three-game sweep. Gleyber Torres homered twice for the Yanks, who have dropped four in a row.

     - The Yankees' lead in the AL East is down to eight games after Willy Adames went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBIs to help the Rays top the Orioles, 5-2. Baltimore set a single-season major league record for home runs allowed when Austin Meadows went deep for the 259th surrendered by the Birds. The game was knotted at 2 until Adames delivered a two-run single in the sixth following a 2-hour, 16-minute rain delay.

     - Yoan Moncada lined a two-run homer his return from the injured list to help the White Sox down the Rangers, 6-1. Moncada batted cleanup in his first game since straining a hamstring on July 31. James McCann hit a solo shot and Ross Detwiler struck out eight while yielding an Elvis Andrus homer and two other hits over six innings.

     - The Red Sox completed a 5-4 win over the Royals on Brock Holt's RBI single in the bottom of the 10th. The original contest was halted after a rain delay early on Aug. 8 with the score tied 4-4 and nobody out in the top of the 10th inning. J.D. Martinez slammed a two-run homer and Xander Bogaerts (BOH'-gahrts) had two RBIs before the game was suspended.

     MLB-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - The Tampa Bay Rays have received a jolt as they try to nail down an American League wild-card berth. Rays second baseman Brandon Lowe has suffered a quadriceps injury that will likely sideline him the rest of the season. Manager Kevin Cash said Lowe got hurt on Wednesday while playing on a rehab assignment for Triple-A Durham. The All-Star selection is batting .276 with 16 homers and 49 RBIs. The second-year Ray hasn't played since suffering a shin injury on July 2.

     Elsewhere in MLB news:

     - The Pirates are requesting unconditional release waivers on 33-year-old catcher Francisco Cervelli. He's played 34 games this season, hitting .193 with one home run and five RBIs. Cervelli has suffered several concussions in his career and hasn't played in the majors since his most recent one on May 25.

     - Angels rookie right-hander Griffin Canning will miss the rest of the season with mild elbow inflammation. Canning has emerged as the Angels' most promising pitching prospect in several years following his recall in April, going 5-6 with a 4.58 ERA in 18 appearances. He pitched seven innings of one-run ball in a victory over the White Sox last Sunday but emerged with elbow discomfort.

     - MLB says the Astros violated media guidelines by initially barring Detroit Free Press reporter Anthony Fenech from the Houston clubhouse immediately after Wednesday's game. Losing pitcher Justin Verlander has a poor relationship with Fenech and accused him on Twitter Thursday of unspecified "unethical behavior in the past." Fenech eventually was allowed into the clubhouse following a nine-minute delay, but Verlander had already concluded his media scrum and refused to speak with the Detroit scribe.

     - A judge has confirmed an arbitration decision from baseball executives ordering the Nationals to be paid $296.8 million by the cable network they jointly own with the Orioles for their television rights from 2012-16. The Orioles and Nationals jointly own the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network and have been fighting in court for years about how much money Washington is owed under their unusual TV rights arrangement.

     NBA-COUSY-MEDAL OF FREEDOM

     WASHINGTON (AP) - Bob Cousy has been presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The medal celebrates individuals with a wide range of achievements and is the nation's highest civilian honor.

     NFL-LIONS-HARRISON

     UNDATED (AP) - Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio won't rule out placing rookie quarterback Drew Lock on injured reserve to start the season. Lock sprained his right thumb against the 49ers and won't venture a guess as to how long he'll be sidelined. The Broncos say a timetable for his return remains up in the air. Joe Flacco is Denver's starting quarterback. The Broncos will start quarterback Kevin Hogan against the Rams this weekend and use undrafted rookie Brett Rypien as the backup.

     Elsewhere in the NFL:

     - Panthers quarterback Cam Newton left Thursday night's exhibition game against New England in the first quarter with a foot injury. Newton was wearing a boot as he headed toward the team bus after the game.

     - The Cardinals have acquired defensive lineman Bruce Hector in a trade that sent safety Rudy Ford to the Eagles. The move is pending physicals for both players. Hector played in eight games for the Eagles last season. Ford has played the past two seasons for the Cardinals, mostly on special teams.

     - Patriots safety Patrick Chung has been indicted in New Hampshire on a charge of cocaine possession. A Belknap County grand jury indicted the 32-year-old Chung on Aug. 8. Authorities say Chung knowingly possessed cocaine on June 25 while in Meredith. Chung's arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday.
