Leading the way for the Minot State men’s team was Duran who won the 400 hurdles in 54.13 seconds on Sunday, while teammates Devontae Daley and Holter Bridwell nearly added a victory each as Daley was 2nd in the men’s 800 meters in 1:55.08 and Bridwell was 2nd in the 5,000 in 17:00.29.

Minot and Austin had two power-play opportunities each, but neither team could convert. The Tauros led in shots 13-11 heading into the first intermission. Into the middle frame, the close-checking contest remained tied 0-0 until Ian Spencer went forehand, backhand, and shelf on the breakaway to beat Bruins’s tender Trent Wiemken with 3:38 left.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Casey Mize pitched six scoreless innings for his major league win since 2021, and Buddy Kennedy homered and drove in three runs as the Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 6-1 on Sunday. Spencer Torkelson had two hits, scored twice and knocked in two runs. Riley Greene scored three times for the Tigers, who improved to 8-3 on the road. Mize (1-0) gave up five hits, walked three and struck out four in his first victory since Aug. 24, 2021, at St. Louis. The top pick in the 2018 amateur draft missed nearly all of the past two seasons because of Tommy John surgery and a back operation. The Twins have lost six of seven and are hitting .195, the second-worst batting average in the big leagues. Minnesota rookie Austin Martin led off the ninth with his first career home run, connecting off Alex Faedo to spoil the shutout. Twins right-hander Louie Varland (0-4) was wild from the start. He walked the first two batters he faced and, after getting a groundout, gave up a single and another walk. Kerry Carpenter’s base hit and Kennedy’s sacrifice fly drove in runs to give the Tigers a 2-0 lead. Twins RHP Chris Paddack (0-1, 8.36) takes the mound as Minnesota opens a four-game series at home against the White Sox tonight.
