MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – After opening the season with four straight wins over nationally-ranked foes, the Minot State men’s hockey team finds itself the No. 2 pick in the nation. The Beavers (4-0-0 overall) are ranked No. 2 in the initial ACHA Division I men’s hockey poll released today, just a handful of points behind top-ranked UNLV. Minot State earned 728 points and 12 first-place votes in the first poll of the year, while UNLV (3-0-0) earned 743 points and 11 first-place votes. Adrian (Mich.) was picked third, Central Oklahoma was fourth, and Liberty (Va.) was fifth. Minot State swept Liberty over the weekend. The Beavers also won a pair of games against Jamestown, which was ranked No. 11 in the first poll. The No. 2-ranked Minot State hockey team is back in action at home this weekend, hosting Midland (Neb.) on Friday and Saturday at the Maysa Arena at 7:30 p.m. each night.
MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – The Minot State Beavers women’s soccer team (7-2-4, 7-1-2 NSIC) will look to ride their five-game winning streak and most recent #8-ranking in the Central Region in the most recent United Soccer Coaches Poll on the road this week in what will be arguably their most difficult weekend. The Beavers first tackle the #14-ranked Minnesota State-Mankato Mavericks (9-1-3, 7-0-3 NSIC) Friday afternoon with kickoff set for 3 p.m. at The Pitch in Mankato, Minn. Following the nationally recognized Mavs will come the always tough Concordia-St. Paul Golden Bears (6-4-3, 6-2-2 NSIC) on Sunday afternoon at Sea Foam Stadium with kickoff set for 1 p.m.
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles claimed outfielder Jake Cave off waivers from the Minnesota Twins and designated right-hander Jake Reed for assignment. The Orioles announced the moves Wednesday. The 29-year-old Cave spent his first five major league seasons with the Twins. He played in 54 games last season, hitting .213 with five home runs and 20 RBIs. Baltimore claimed Reed off waivers from the Los Angeles Dodgers in September, and he went 1-0 with a 6.35 ERA in eight relief appearances for the Orioles down the stretch.
ATLANTA (AP) — Kyle Wright threw six brilliant innings to outduel Zack Wheeler, and the Atlanta Braves evened their NL Division Series at one game apiece with a 3-0 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. After rain delayed the first pitch by nearly three hours, Wright surrendered just two hits. He claimed the win when the Braves got to Wheeler for three runs in their half of the sixth. This was a game the reigning World Series champions had to have after losing the best-of-five series opener, 7-6. They had the right guy on the mound. Wright led the majors with 21 wins during the regular season.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Manny Machado homered early and added an RBI double off Clayton Kershaw, and Jurickson Profar singled home the go-ahead run in the sixth inning as the San Diego Padres beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 to even their NL Division Series at a game apiece. Freddie Freeman, Max Muncy and Trea Turner went deep for the Dodgers, but LA couldn’t come up with its usual clutch hitting despite numerous chances. The best-of-five series shifts to San Diego for Game 3 on Friday. A goose landed in shallow right field in the eighth inning, causing a brief delay while the grounds crew chased it down.
