FARIBAULT, Minn. (MSU) – Turning in the third-best round of the day on Tuesday, Minot State’s Holly Knudsen charged up the leaderboard for a Top 5 finish at the season-opening Maverick Invitational hosted by Minnesota State, Mankato. Knudsen fired a 7-over 79, one of just four rounds in the 70s for the ladies in the final round Tuesday at the Faribault Golf and Country Club, finishing tied for fifth at 19-over 163 (84-79) to lead the way for the Beaver women’s golf team, which finished sixth in the first event of the fall.
On the men’s side, Colton Horn and Aaron Grandy each shot 4-over 76s on the second day, improving over their first-round effort on Monday to finish 20th and tied for 22nd, respectively, as Minot State cut seven shots from its team score on the second the day to finish fifth. Andrew Makarchuk had the top finish for the Beavers as he tied for 13th overall with two consistent rounds of 76 and 77 for a 9-over 153, while Horn shot rounds of 81 and 76 for a 13-over 157, and Grandy carded an 83 and 76 to finish at 15-over 159.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Nick Gordon hit his first career grand slam and drove in a career-high six runs, Jake Cave and Gary Sánchez also homered, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Boston Red Sox 10-5 on Tuesday night. Gordon lined a two-run double in the first inning and followed with a drive to the upper deck in right field in the fifth to lead Minnesota to its fifth straight win. The Twins trail AL Central-leading Cleveland by 1 1/2 games. “His nickname’s ‘Flash’ and he was definitely that spark for us tonight,” said Chris Archer, who started for Minnesota and allowed four runs in 4 1/3 innings. Michael Fulmer (5-5) worked 1 1/3 innings of relief with two strikeouts. Kutter Crawford (3-6) surrendered five runs — four earned — on four hits and four walks in 4 1/3 innings for Boston, which has lost seven of nine, Boston will have RHP Michael Wacha (9-1, 2.53 ERA) on the mound for the series finale tonight. Minnesota counters with RHP Joe Ryan (10-6, 3.65).
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings waived quarterbacks Sean Mannion and Kellen Mond at the NFL’s roster cutdown deadline Tuesday, keeping only one backup for Kirk Cousins. Mannion and Mond became expendable last week when the Vikings acquired Nick Mullens in a trade with Las Vegas for a conditional 2024 seventh-round draft choice. Cousins has never missed a game to injury in his NFL career.
Mond was the first of four picks the Vikings made in the third round in 2021, the 66th overall selection out of Texas A&M. Ryan Tannehill (No. 8 in 2012) and Johnny Manziel (No. 22 in 2014) were the only other Texas A&M quarterbacks in history to be drafted higher. The 6-foot-3, 212-pound native of San Antonio was deemed too raw as a rookie for any role beside the No. 3 job. He was only active for one game, when Cousins was out with COVID-19 and Mannion started at Green Bay in Week 16, but he attempted only three passes in relief in that game. Over three preseason games this month, Mond went 29 for 51 for 303 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions while taking five sacks.
Mannion has drawn rave reviews from Cousins and the coaching staff for his character and intelligence, but since being drafted in the third round in 2015 by the Rams he has only three career starts. Filling in for Cousins against the Packers last year, Mannion went 22 for 36 for 189 yards, one touchdown and two sacks with no turnovers. Both Mannion and Mond are candidates for the practice squad.
Of the 11 players the Vikings drafted in 2021, only five remained on the active roster after the latest cuts: starting left tackle Christian Darrisaw (first round), backup outside linebacker Patrick Jones II (third), backup running back and kickoff returner Kene Nwangwu (fourth), starting safety Camryn Bynum (fourth) and backup wide receiver and punt returner Ihmir Smith-Marsette (fifth). Linebacker Chazz Surratt and guard Wyatt Davis, both third-rounders last year, were also among the players waived.
The Vikings made two trades, sending guard Jesse Davis to Pittsburgh for a conditional 2025 seventh-round draft pick and acquiring Houston defensive lineman Ross Blacklock and a seventh-round 2023 draft pick for a 2023 sixth-rounder. The departure of Davis all but secured a starting spot at right guard for rookie Ed Ingram Jr. Blacklock was a second-round pick in 2020. He’ll essentially replace defensive lineman Armon Watts, the most accomplished of the 23 players let go by the Vikings. Watts was the only player listed on the first team on the depth chart who participated in the second preseason game on Aug. 20, so the coaching staff was clearly not yet sold on his status in the lineup next to Harrison Phillips and Dalvin Tomlinson on the interior of the 3-4 base defense.
Luiji Vilain, an outside linebacker from Wake Forest, and Ryan Wright, the punter from Tulane, were the only undrafted rookies to make the initial 53-man roster.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Wild signed former Anaheim Ducks center Sam Steel to a one-year, $825,000 contract on Tuesday, adding depth at a vital position. The 24-year-old Steel played in a career-most 68 games for the Ducks last season, collecting six goals, 14 assists and a career-high 27 blocked shots. The 2016 first-round draft pick has 24 goals and 41 assists in 197 career NHL games over parts of four seasons, all with Anaheim. The native of Alberta became the youngest Ducks player to record a hat trick when he scored three goals on March 26, 2019, as a 21-year-old.
