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 TWINS

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Miguel Sano's three-run homer capped a five-run rally in the fifth inning, Jake Cave and Max Kepler also connected and the AL Central-leading Minnesota Twins beat the Detroit Tigers 8-5 Saturday night.
 
     Sano and Cave both homered twice Friday night in a 9-6 loss to the Tigers, who have the worst record in the league. The Twins trailed 4-1 in this game before their comeback.
 
     Cave led off the fifth with a double, Kepler doubled home a run and Nelson Cruz hit an RBI single. Sano pulled his 26th homer into the second deck in left off Edwin Jackson (3-7).
 
     Cave hit a two-run homer in the sixth off Matt Hall. Kepler had three hits, including his 35th home run and sixth leadoff shot of the season.
 
     Kyle Gibson (12-6) allowed the leadoff batter to reach in all six innings he pitched, and received limited help from his defense.  A fielding error by second baseman Luis Arraez led to the second of two Tigers runs in the second, and Dawel Lugo slid headfirst to score on a botched rundown in the two-run third.
 
     Gibson struck out eight in 5 1/3 innings while charged with five runs, four earned. He won for the first time since Aug. 3.
 
     Taylor Rogers, in his first appearance since Aug. 18, secured the final five outs for his 20th save. He escaped a two-on, one-out jam in the eighth before striking out the side in the ninth.
 
     Tigers rookie shortstop and top prospect Willi Castro, called up from Triple-A Toledo earlier in the day, went 2 for 4 with a double in his major league debut.
 
     UP NEXT

     Tigers LHP Matthew Boyd (6-9, 4.24 ERA) comes back from the paternity list. He is 0-3 in his last eight starts. LHP Martin Perez (8-5, 4.60) starts for the Twins.

    MINNESOTA VIKINGS

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Dalvin Cook had an 85-yard touchdown run for Minnesota, the highlight of an otherwise rough first half by the first-team offense during a 20-9 victory by the Vikings over the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday.
 
     Cook scored early and Mike Boone crossed the goal line late, as the Vikings totaled 190 yards on 29 carries. The ground game was by far the best development of an afternoon when Kirk Cousins went just 3 for 13 for 35 yards while taking two sacks and Kaare Vedvik missed field goals from 43 and 54 yards.
 
     Rookie Kyler Murray, the first overall pick in the draft to whom new coach Kliff Kingsbury and the Cardinals have turned to lead the reconstruction project, was relatively sharp while going 14 for 21 for 137 yards over the five possessions against a Vikings defense that was almost at full strength. Three of the drives ended with a successful field goal by Zane Gonzalez, a result that surely made the Vikings envious.
 
     Vedvik, who has been given an extended evaluation as both a kicker and a punter, made both of his extra point attempts, at least, while incumbent Dan Bailey took the afternoon off. Matt Wile punted six times for an average of 47.3 yards, leaving no more clarity about the specialists than when the month began.
 
     Cousins was under frequent pressure and had multiple passes knocked down at the line, including one deflection by rookie Zach Allen, who had a half-sack. Another Cardinals draft pick, KeeSean Johnson, stood out on the other side of the ball with seven receptions for 85 yards on seven targets.
 
     One of the most discouraging aspects of the performance for Kingsbury and his staff were the 14 penalties for 111 yards, including two false starts called on backup quarterback Brett Hundley in a three-snap stretch late in the second quarter for apparently lifting his leg to signal a receiver to start his motion.
 
     THE LONG RUN
 
     The Cardinals were last in the league last season in rushing defense, allowing an average of nearly 155 yards per game that was bumped up by the Vikings here last Oct. 14 in a 27-17 victory fueled by a career-high 155 rushing yards from Latavius Murray.
 
     Cook made the Cardinals look bad again, when he took a handoff to the left and veered right behind a key seal block by new right guard Josh Kline. The new zone blocking scheme directed by offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski, senior offensive adviser Gary Kubiak and offensive line coach Rick Dennison ought to be a good fit for Cook with his keen cutback ability. The touchdown run was the longest in a preseason game in Vikings history, topping a 76-yarder by Jordan Todman in 2012.
 
     SITTING OUT
 
     Vikings: DT Linval Joseph, who joined the team for practice this week for the first time since offseason shoulder surgery, was held out of the starting lineup, as was SS Harrison Smith. On offense, WR Adam Thielen rested, and RT Brian O'Neill stayed on the sideline again, after returning to the field this week following a three-week absence because of a right arm injury.
 
     UP NEXT
 
     Vikings: Play at Tennessee on Thursday night in their final exhibition game. The regular-season opener is Sept. 8 against Atlanta.

     MLB-SCHEDULE

     UNDATED (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals have increased their lead in the NL Central by winning for the 12th time in their last 15 games.

     The Cardinals are a season-high 12 games over .500 after Dakota Hudson combined with three relievers on a four-hitter in a 6-0 shutout of the Rockies. Hudson gave up two hits over six frames and extended his consecutive scoreless innings streak to a career-high 18 2/3.

     Harrison Bader and Paul Goldschmidt homered after Marcell Ozuna poked a two-run single in the first inning to put the Cards ahead.

     The win puts the Redbirds 1 1/2 games ahead of the second-place Cubs.

     The Cubs were thumped by the Nationals for the second straight day as Howie Kendrick and Yan Gomes (GOHMZ') each had two hits and two RBIs in Washington's 14th victory in 18 games, 7-2 at Wrigley Field. Gomes delivered a two-run single to cap a four-run third that gave the Nationals a 5-0 lead against Jose Quintana. Washington's much-maligned bullpen provided 4 2/3 innings of one-hit ball after Joe Ross was reached for two runs on six hits and four walks over 4 1/3.

     The Nats have won the first two games of the series by a combined 16-5 margin.

     Washington remains six games off the NL East lead following the Braves' 9-5 triumph over the Mets. Ronald Acuna (ah-KOON'-yah) Jr. broke a 5-5 tie with a two-run single in the eighth inning. Freddie Freeman, Ozzie Albies and Josh Donaldson homered in Atlanta's seventh consecutive win.

     Catcher Francisco Cervelli was 3-for-5 with three RBIs just hours after signing with the Braves.

     Elsewhere on major league diamonds:

     - Kenley Jansen struck out Mike Tauchman (TAHK'-man) and pinch-hitter Gary Sanchez with the bases loaded to complete the Dodgers' 2-1 victory against the Yankees. Gleyber (GLAY'-bur) Torres tried to score from second once second baseman Max Muncy was wiped out by a baserunner while trying to complete a force play, but the umpires sent Torres back to third because time had been called following the collision. Justin Turner belted a two-run homer and rookie Tony Gonsolin (GAHN'-soh-lihn) held the Yanks to a run and two hits over five innings.

     - Chase Anderson combined with four relievers on a four-hitter as the Brewers blanked the Diamondbacks, 4-0. Anderson struck out five and limited Arizona to three hits over five innings to help Milwaukee stay 3 1/2 games off the NL Central lead. Eric Thames (thaymz) and Trent Grisham hit solo homers before Keston Kiura's two-run single capped the scoring in the Brewers' third straight win.

     - The Phillies rolled to a 9-3 rout over the Marlins behind Josh Dickerson's four hits and five RBIs. Scott Kingery's three-run homer highlighted a six-run fourth and erased Philadelphia's 1-0 deficit. Zach Eflin pitched six solid innings for his first win since June 24, allowing two runs and six hits.

     - The Pirates posted a 14-0 laugher against the Reds as Josh Bell crushed a three-run homer and Colin Moran furnished a pinch-hit grand slam. Bell topped 100 RBIs for the first time and tied a team record for switch-hitters with his 32nd home run of the season, matching the mark set by Bobby Bonilla. Trevor Williams allowed three hits over six innings after yielding six runs over two frames in his last start against the Nationals.

     - Miguel Sano banged out a three-run homer while the Twins scored five times in the fifth inning of an 8-5 comeback win over the Tigers. Jake Cave and Max Kepler also went deep for Minnesota, which trailed 4-1 in the fifth before keeping their 2  1/2-game lead over Cleveland atop the AL Central. Kyle Gibson moved to 12-6 despite yielding four earned runs and 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings.

     - Franmil Reyes smacked a three-run homer to help the Indians double up the Royals, 4-2. Reyes' 30th homer of the season highlighted a four-run third inning against the Royals' Glenn Sparkman. Mike Clevinger struck out eight and allowed one run over 5 2/3 innings to improve to 9-2 for Cleveland, which finished the game without third baseman Jose Ramirez because of a wrist injury.

     - Alex Bregman slammed his career-high 32nd homer and Wade Miley earned his seventh straight victory in the Astros' 5-2 decision over the Angels. Michael Brantley extended his hitting streak to 17 games with a two-run homer in the bottom of the first, one inning before Bregman hit a three-run shot. Miley yielded one run on five hits with four strikeouts over five innings to improve to 13-4 and help Houston tie the Yankees for the AL's top record.

     - The Giants cooled off the Athletics by erupting for eight runs in the eighth inning of a 10-5 comeback at Oakland. Kevin Pillar hit a tiebreaking, two-run double and Stephen Vogt (voht) followed with a three-run blast in San Francisco's biggest inning of the year. The A's lost for just the second time in nine games and stayed a half-game behind Tampa Bay for the second AL wild card.

     - Pedro Severino launched his first career grand slam to support John
Means as the Orioles dumped the Rays, 7-1. Means allowed one run and five hits over seven innings to end a four-starting losing streak. Hanser Alberto and Jonathan Villar homered on successive pitches to help Baltimore hand Tampa Bay just the second loss in its last 13 road games.

     - The Red Sox coughed up a 4-0 lead before Brock Holt's solo homer in the ninth gave them a 5-4 victory at San Diego. Christian Vazquez lined a two-run double and Mookie Betts and Mitch Moreland each had two hits and an RBI in Boston's seventh win in nine games. Eric Hosmer hit a two-run homer for the Padres, but he also struck out with the potential winning run on first base to end the game.

     - Toronto's six-game skid has ended after the Blue Jays rallied for four runs in the seventh to beat the Mariners, 7-5. Billy McKinney, Bo Bichette, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Rowdy Tellez drove in runs during the comeback. Bichette and Teoscar Hernandez hit solo homers for Toronto.

     - Kolby Allard scattered six hits over 6 1/3 innings of the Rangers' 4-0 shutout of the White Sox. Allard struck out eight and walked none in his fourth start since being acquired from Atlanta last month. Willie Calhoun and Danny Santana homered for Texas.

Feleipe Franks offset three inexcusable turnovers by accounting for three touchdowns as the Gators rallied to beat Miami, 24-20 at Orlando.
