SIOUX FALLS, SD (MSU) – Minot State senior Drew Behling hit his 13th home run of the season, a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth inning to break a 1-1 tie, a game-winning hit that helped power the Minot State Beavers over the Mary Marauders 6-3 on Thursday in an elimination game on day two of the NSIC Baseball Tournament. With the win, the Beavers advance to another elimination game against the loser of the Minnesota State, Mankato versus St. Cloud State game which was suspended in the sixth inning Thursday night. Minot State’s next game will be some time after conclusion of the Mankato/St. Cloud State game today.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — It was a Jordan Binnington type of game. The St. Louis Blues goalie has earned a reputation as a clutch performer when the team has a chance to close out a playoff series. And he proved it again Thursday night. Binnington made 25 saves and the Blues beat the Minnesota Wild 5-1 in Game 6 to advance to the second round of the Western Conference playoffs. The St. Louis goalie improved to 5-1 in potential series-clinching games.



MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Luis Garcia and three relievers combined on a seven-hitter, Yordan Álvarez homered twice and Jeremy Peña capped a big day with three hits as the Houston Astros extended their winning streak to 10 games with a 5-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday. Houston completed a three-game sweep. Before the regularly scheduled game, the teams completed a game suspended after three innings on Wednesday night due to severe weather. Jose Altuve homered, doubled and drove in three runs in an 11-3 victory. The Astros have given up just 11 runs during the streak with five shutouts and a 0.90 ERA over that stretch.


DALLAS (AP) — Luka Doncic has his first victory in an elimination game. Now the young Dallas superstar gets another one — and another Game 7 to boot. Doncic scored 33 points and the Mavericks beat the Phoenix Suns 113-86 on Thursday night to force a deciding game in the Western Conference semifinals. The home team has won all six games, none with a margin closer than seven points. A trip to the West finals will be at stake Sunday in Phoenix.


PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jimmy Butler knocked Joel Embiid out of the playoffs, then walked over to his former 76ers teammate and hugged him, told him he loved him and was proud of him. Butler then headed out of a familiar court a winner — and straight into another conference finals with Miami. Butler scored 32 points and waved “bye bye” to the Philly crowd as he sent Miami into the Eastern Conference finals with a 99-90 victory over Philadelphia on Thursday night in Game 6. The Heat will play the winner of the Milwaukee-Boston series. The defending champion Bucks lead that series 3-2, with Game 6 on Friday night in Milwaukee.


TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Lightning saved their season, keeping their bid for a three-peat alive. The two-time defending Stanley Cup champions rallied to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 in overtime on Thursday night, staving off elimination and forcing a winner-take-all Game 7 in the first round playoff series between the Atlantic Division rivals. Game 7 is Saturday in Toronto.


BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Bruins earned themselves a seventh game with another dominating performance at home. The problem: The clincher will be at Carolina, where the Hurricanes have been just as unbeatable. Jeremy Swayman stopped 23 shots, and Brad Marchand had a goal and an assist for Boston in the sixth straight blowout for the home team. Charlie Coyle also had a goal and an assist for Boston, and Erik Haula and Derek Forbort added third-period goals before Curtis Lazar backhanded the puck into the empty net with 4:17 to play to make it 5-1. The Hurricanes will host Game 7 on Saturday in Raleigh, where they have gone 3-0 by a combined score of 15-4.


LOS ANGELES (AP) — If a picture indeed tells a thousand words, Evander Kane holding seven fingers in the air after scoring an empty-net goal told plenty about the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night. The Oilers fought off elimination and forced a deciding game. Kane’s second goal late in the third period put an exclamation point on the Oilers’ 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 6 of their Western Conference first-round series. Edmonton will host the winner-take-all game Saturday night
