HUDSON, WI (MSU) – Minot State sophomore Zach Hendrickson matched his career-best on Tuesday, and with it came within just two strokes of a title. The Our Redeemer’s Christian School product shot an even-par 71 at the Troy Burne Golf Club for Tuesday’s final round of the Concordia, St. Paul-Minnesota State, Mankato Fall Brawl to tie for third individually at 1-over 143 (72-71). He was just two strokes back of tournament champion Tate Carlson of Upper Iowa who finished at 1-under 141 (72-69). Hendrickson’s efforts led the way for the Minot State men who finished seventh at 42-over 610 (301-309) for the tournament. While Hendrickson’s best-ever collegiate finish led the Beavers, he was backed up by teammate Chase Gedak who added a Top 20 finish as he tied for 20th at 9-over 151 (73-78). Joshua Tu was next for the Minot State men, tying for 46th at 15-over 156 (76-80), then Max Karnik, who tied for 55th at 18-over 160 (80-80), and Aimery Barrault, who was 75th at 36-over 178 (94-84). Gage Olson, playing as an individual, finished 74th at 34-over 176 (94-82). Winona State won the men’s team title at 10-over 578 (289-289).
On the women’s side, Minot State finished eighth with a team total of 117-over 685 (340-345) with senior Holly Knudsen leading the way as she finished tied for 23rd at 22-over 164 (77-87). Co-host Minnesota State, Mankato swept the women’s titles as the Mavericks won the team championship with a 43-over 611 (299-312) and were led by individual champion Anna Cihak, who carded a 6-over 148 (69-79).

CINCINNATI (AP) — Willi Castro hit a two-run homer and made two spectacular catches, Kenta Maeda combined on a four-hitter and the Minnesota Twins beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-0 on Tuesday night in another step toward their third AL Central title in five seasons. Ryan Jeffers added a solo homer for Minnesota (80-72), which opened an eight-game lead over second-place Cleveland with 10 games remaining. Cincinnati (79-74), shut out for the 10th time, is one game behind the Chicago Cubs for the NL’s final wild card, also trailing Miami by a half-game. In his first season after Tommy John surgery, Maeda (6-7) won his third straight start after four no-decisions. He allowed one hit in five innings, retiring his first 11 batters before Spencer Steer doubled to left and Jake Fraley. After a double steal, Castro made a diving catch of Tyler Stephenson’s liner to center, which could have tied the game had it dropped. Castro leaped at the wall to rob Stephenson of a home run in the seventh, a day after Michael A. Taylor denied Will Benson on a drive to center. Despite not having his best four-seam fastball, Maeda struck out eight and walked one. Kody Funderburk, Emilio Pagán, Caleb Thielbar and Dylan Floro finished the Twins’ 12th shutout. Royce Lewis appeared to hurt a leg while running out a double-play ball in the sixth. He stayed in the game, then left after fouling off a 2-1 pitch in the eighth. Minnesota said he had left hamstring tightness.
Reds RHP Hunter Greene (4-6, 4.45, 129 strikeouts) is due to face Twins RHP Bailey Ober (7-6, 3.67, 126 strikeouts) in today’s series finale.
EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings signed former Denver guard Dalton Risner on Tuesday to try to shore up what has been a problematic position for several seasons. Risner visited the Vikings for a workout during training camp. Drafted in the second round out of Kansas State in 2019, Risner started 62 games in four years for the Broncos. He became a free agent and had been unsigned. To make room on the active roster, the Vikings placed tackle Oli Udoh on injured reserve with a torn quadriceps tendon he suffered in the team’s most recent game at Philadelphia. The Vikings ( 0-2 ) are last in the NFL in rushing yards and third worst in the league with an average of 2.65 yards per attempt. Center Garrett Bradbury was sidelined by a back injury in the season opener. Right guard Ed Ingram has struggled often since winning the job as a rookie last season. “I do have a lot of confidence in our guys, but clearly we’ve got to do something a little bit differently and really focus on how to run the football better,” coach Kevin O’Connell said after the loss to the Eagles.
