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

     CHICAGO (AP) - Marwin Gonzalez and Jonathan Schoop hit solo homers in the second inning, Michael Pineda pitched five sharp innings and the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 3-1 on Tuesday night.
 
     Eddie Rosario knocked in an insurance run in the eighth as the AL Central-leading Twins won their third straight to remain 3 1/2 games ahead of Cleveland. Minnesota (80-51) moved to 29 games above .500 for the first time since Sept. 26, 2010.
 
     Tim Anderson's 14th homer accounted for the only run off Pineda (10-5), who won his third straight start and fourth straight decision. The right-hander allowed four hits and walked one while striking out eight, but was replaced by Sam Dyson to start the sixth after 89 pitches.
 
     Tyler Duffey, Sergio Romo and Taylor Rogers followed as Minnesota's bullpen came through with four scoreless innings. Rogers pitched a perfect ninth for his 21st save.
 
     Lucas Giolito (14-7), who shut out the Twins in a three-hitter while striking out 12 and walking none in Minneapolis last week, wasn't as crisp this time. The White Sox ace gave up two runs and four hits with three walks in six innings, while striking out nine to reach 203 for the season.
 
     Giolito threw 106 pitches, topping 100 for the fifth straight outing.
 
     Max Kepler, who leads the Twins with 35 home runs, didn't start, but pinch-hit in the eighth and then played center in an outfield shift after Gonzalez left with an abdominal issue. Minnesota still increased its major league-leading homer total to 255.
 
     The Twins took a 2-0 lead in the second on solo shots by Gonzalez and Schoop, although Giolito fanned the three other Minnesota batters in the inning.
 
     Gonzalez led off by lofting a 1-2 pitch into the right-field stands for his 15th homer.  With two outs, Schoop hit an 0-1 pitch deep to left for his 19th.
 
     Anderson's homer to right-center leading off the fourth was Chicago's first hit and cut it to 2-1.
 
     Jorge Polanco, Nelson Cruz and Rosario line three straight singles in the eighth to make it 3-1
 
     KEPLER RESTS
 
     Kepler pinch hit in the eighth and flew out, but got nearly two days of rest. "(Kepler) has been playing center field pretty much every day for us, DHed I believe one day" manager Rocco Baldelli said. "We decided to give him back-to-back with the day off yesterday and today."
 
     BULLPEN TWEAK
 
     Minnesota recalled RHP Randy Dobnak from Triple-A Rochester and optioned LHP Lewis Thorpe to the farm club before the game.
 
     TRAINER'S ROOM
 
     Twins: Rosario started in left field after missing three games with right hamstring tightness. .. Baldelli said OF Byron Buxton's Class A rehab assignment at Class A Cedar Rapids was suspended after he felt pain in his injured left shoulder during batting practice. Buxton, who has been out since Aug. 1, will be re-evaluated.
 
     UP NEXT:
 
     Twins RHP Jake Odorizzi (13-6, 3.57) faces White Sox LHP Ross Detwiler (2-3, 5.51) tonight.

    VIKINGS-KICKERS

     EAGAN, Minn. (AP) - The Vikings thought they had a reliable option in Kaare Vedvik. He is a newcomer acquired from Baltimore this month for a fifth-round draft pick. But his rocky performance in the third preseason game has done little to reassure coach Mike Zimmer. Vedvik missed both his field-goal attempts in a 20-9 win against Arizona. Afterward, Zimmer would only say his concern is "high" regarding Vedvik. Special teams coordinator Marwan Maalouf was more direct. He called it "unacceptable."

     MLB-SCHEDULE

     UNDATED (AP) - The Atlanta Braves have suffered their second straight loss since reeling off eight consecutive victories. Justin Smoak belted his 20th home run and had an RBI single as the Blue Jays downed the Braves, 3-1 in Toronto.

     The outcome keeps the NL East-leading Braves 5 1/2 games ahead of Washington.

     The Nationals failed to gain ground as Aaron Brooks combined with four relievers on a four-hitter in Baltimore's 2-0 shutout of the Nats.

     Elsewhere on major league diamonds:

     - The Cubs bounced back from their three-game sweep by Washington to take the opener of their series with the Mets, 5-2.

Javier Baez and Addison Russell each had three hits, including a two-run homer.

     - The Dodgers blew out the Padres, 9-0 as Walker Buehler fanned 11 and allowed only four hits in six innings to improve to 11-3. Buehler improved to 4-0 with a 0.64 ERA in four career appearances against San Diego in two seasons, including a combined no-hitter in Mexico. Joe Pederson homered for the NL West leaders, who also got two RBIs apiece from Corey Seager, Kike Hernandez and Will Smith.

     - Mike Leake picked up his first win since joining the Diamondbacks and Adam Jones supplied a tiebreaking single in the sixth inning of a 3-2 victory against the Giants. Leake gave up two runs and four hits over 7 1/3 innings as Arizona moved within four games of a wild-card slot. Ketel Marte homered in the fifth for the DBacks but came up limping as he ran the bases and left because of a cramp in his right hamstring.

     - Curt Casali belted a solo homer and broke a 3-3 tie with a two-run single before the Reds completed an 8-5 victory against the Marlins.

Adam Plutko is 6-3 after striking out a season-high nine while yielding one run on three hits in 5 1/3 innings.

     - Marcus Semien sparked the Athletics' offense in a 2-1 win over the Royals, going 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored.

     - The Rays absorbed a 15-1 loss to the Astros as Houston tagged former teammate Charlie Morton for six runs over four innings. Rookie Yordan Alvarez homered twice with four RBIs to help the Astros win their fifth in a row and maintain their nine-game lead over Oakland atop the AL West. Justin Verlander allowed four hits and struck out four in 5 1/3 scoreless innings to improve to 16-5, although he was ejected for screaming at plate umpire Pat Hoberg over a perceived missed strike call.

     - Masahiro Tanaka threw seven sharp innings and outpitched Yusei Kikuchi in a showdown of Japanese starters as the Yankees blanked the Mariners, 7-0 in Seattle.

Rick Porcello gave up two runs over five innings for Boston, which survived two-run homers by Sam Hilliard and Nolan Arenado.

     TENNIS-US OPEN

     NEW YORK (AP) - There were moments on Tuesday when Naomi Osaka looked nothing like a No. 1 seed or a defending U.S. Open women's singles champion. She fell behind 3-0 and wasted a match point in the second set while displaying questionable body language. But Osaka eventually found her rhythm and completed a 6-4, 6-7, 6-2 victory over Anna Blinkova despite finishing with 50 unforced errors, more than double Blinkova's total of 22 in the opening-round match.

     American Sloane Stephens is out of the U.S. Open in the first round, just two years after winning the title. The No. 11 seed was stunned, 6-3, 6-4 by the 127th-ranked Anna Kalinskaya.

     Coco Gauff has won her U.S. Open debut with a comeback effort against Anastasia Potopova. The 15-year-old Gauff lost the first set and was down a break before posting a 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 victory. Gauff got a wild-card entry from the U.S. Tennis Association after making a surprising run to the fourth round at Wimbledon last month, her first Grand Slam event.

     Gauff and Osaka are joined in the second round by fourth seed Simona Halep, who also needed three sets before posting a 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 victory over American Nicole Gibbs. Halep had dropped her previous U.S. Open matches, falling to Maria Sharapova and Kaia Kanepi.

     Sixth seed Petra Kvitova and No. 7 Kiki Bertens dropped just six games apiece in breezing into the second round.

     Men's second seed Rafael Nadal remains unbeaten in opening-round matches at Flushing Meadows following a 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 win against Australian John Millman. Nadal had little trouble against the player who knocked out Roger Federer in the fourth round last year.

     There were a trio of top-10 upsets on the men's side as fourth seed Dominic Thiem was dispatched by Thomas Fabbiano in four sets. Eighth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas was beaten in five sets by Andrey Rublev and No. 10 Roberto Bautista-Agut dropped a five-setter to Mikhail Kukushkin.

     MLB-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - The Cleveland Indians have hope that third baseman Jose Ramirez can return to the team for the playoffs if they get that far.

     Ramirez had surgery Monday in New York on the broken hamate bone in his right hand, an injury suffered during a hard swing during a weekend game. The team said the two-time All-Star could return in five to seven weeks, which would be the beginning of October.

     Ramirez is batting .254 with 20 home runs and 75 RBIs this season.

     The Indians begin play with a half-game lead for the top AL wild-card berth, and 3 1/2 games behind the AL Central-leading Twins.

     In other MLB news:

     - Keon Broxton has received a two-game suspension from Major League Baseball for throwing equipment that hit an umpire after the Mariners outfielder struck out looking. MLB says Broxton is appealing the discipline, meaning he is allowed to play until the process is complete.

     - MLB also says Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner is appealing his one-game ban for making contact with an umpire at the end of Monday's loss at San Diego. Turner argued with plate umpire Rob Drake over a called third strike that ended the game.

     - Diamondbacks left fielder David Peralta has decided to undergo season-ending right shoulder surgery on Friday following his third stint on the injured list. Peralta was batting .275 with 12 homers and 57 RBIs in 99 games this season before leaving the lineup last week.

     - Yankees right-hander Luis Severino feels ready to start a minor league rehab assignment following his second simulated game. Severino is coming back from a lat muscle injury suffered during spring training and said he felt good after throwing 35 pitches over two innings against minor leaguers on Tuesday. Severino was 19-8 with a 3.39 ERA in 32 starts last season.

     - Two people familiar with the situation tell The Associated Press that the ownership of the Kansas City Royals is open to the possibility of selling the franchise if the right buyer is found. The Athletic reported Tuesday that team owner David Glass was in discussions with a group led by Kansas City native and Cleveland Indians vice chairman John Sherman. But the depth of those discussions is unclear, and one person told the AP that the club has been open to offers for some time.

     NFL-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - Panthers coach Ron Rivera says "there's no doubt in my mind" that Cam Newton will play in the team's regular season opener against the Rams. Rivera says the 30-year-old quarterback has made "good strides" after suffering a mid-foot sprain in last Thursday night's preseason game against at New England. Rivera expects Newton will return to practice when the Panthers begin preparations for the opener against the Rams on Sept. 8.

     In other NFL news:

     - Denver tight end Jake Butt has had another setback in his return from a third ACL injury and might be headed back to injured reserve. Butt hasn't practiced since playing 11 snaps in Denver's preseason loss to the Los Angeles Rams last weekend, his first game action since last September.

     - The Lions have signed quarterback Luis Perez and cut quarterback David Fales as they seek depth behind Matthew Stafford. Detroit signed Tom Savage to likely be its No. 2 quarterback, but his preseason was impacted by a concussion.

    WOODS-KNEE

    UNDATED (AP) - Tiger Woods says he has had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to repair what he describes as minor cartilage damage. The surgery was not believed to be serious, and Woods says on Twitter he expects to return to practice. Woods had the surgery last week during the Tour Championship. He won the Masters in April for his 15th major but did not finish among the top 30 in the FedEx Cup who qualified for the final event at East Lake.
