KHRT Sports – 05/13/24


TORONTO (AP) — Carlos Santana hit a three-run home run, Bailey Ober matched his career high by striking out 10 over 6 1/3 shutout innings and the Minnesota Twins won for the 17th time in 20 games by beating the Toronto Blue Jays 5-1 on Sunday. The Twins have won six consecutive series for the first time since September 2010. Santana homered for the third straight game north of the U.S. border, extending Minnesota’s streak of games in Toronto with at least one home run to 20. The Twins homered in 21 straight games at Kansas City between July 30, 1998, and Aug. 25, 2001. Max Kepler added a two-run double for the Twins, extending his career-best hitting streak to 14 games. The game was scoreless until Kepler reached on a one-out fielding error by Blue Jays third baseman Ernie Clement in the seventh inning. Willi Castro followed with a single and Alex Kirilloff grounded into a fielder’s choice before Santana drilled his seventh home run on a 2-0 pitch from Blue Jays right-hander Alek Manoah. The Twins are off today.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Denver Nuggets were far from done after dropping the first two games of the Western Conference semifinals at home in humbling fashion. Nikola Jokic scored 16 of his 35 points in the fourth quarter, and Aaron Gordon had 27 points on 11-for-12 shooting to propel the Nuggets to a series-tying 115-107 victory over the Timberwolves on Sunday night in Game 4 . Jamal Murray had 12 of his 19 points in the third quarter for the derfending champion Nuggets in a momentum carryover from his buzzer-beating swish from behind half court, and the Wolves only had the deficit below double digits in the second half for a total of 3:19. Anthony Edwards scored 44 points in another spectacular performance for Minnesota that set the franchise postseason record, shooting 16 for 25. But despite a 42-31 rebounding edge, the Wolves were beaten at their own game for the second straight time at home. The series goes back to Denver for Game 5 on Tuesday night.

MINOT, ND – The Minot Minotauros are NAHL’s Central Division champion after beating the Bobcats 3-1 in Game 4 of the division finals in Bismarck on Saturday. Nicholas Sewecke gave the Tauros a 1-0 lead after the first period. Trevor Stachowiak made it 2-1 through two periods. John Small added a third goal in the third period. Lukas Swedin stopped 27 of 28 Bobcat shots. Minot hoists their second Central Cup in franchise history and secured their spot in the Robertson Cup Semi-Finals, which will start next weekend in Blaine, Minnesota. Minot will be the #2-seed and take on #3-seed Maryland in a best-of-three series. Game one is Friday at 7:30 PM at Fogerty Arena in Blaine.
MANKATO, Minn. (MSU) – One day after teammate Jasiah Hambira stole the show for Minot State at the NSIC Outdoor Track & Field Championships, it was Ramon Duran’s turn on Saturday. While Duran missed out on the triple-feat accomplished by Hambira of a title, a record, and an NCAA mark, he came within one place of that accomplishment as he doubled up with an NCAA qualifying mark and an all-time Minot State record as runner-up in the men’s 400-meter hurdles at the Championships hosted by Minnesota State, Mankato that concluded Saturday. Duran finished second only to Anthony Collins of MSU, Mankato as the Beaver junior clocked a time of 52.53 seconds in Saturday’s event finals, a career best that also is an NCAA qualifying time that currently ranks him No. 30 in the nation.
Also an All-NSIC performance, as the top 3 finishers in an individual event earn All-NSIC honors, Duran’s race also broke the all-time Minot State record in the event of 52.68 seconds run in 2015 by Tyler Flatland. The Mavericks’ Collins won the event on Saturday in 50.75. Duran’s hurdles effort was one of two records and All-NSIC honors he brought home as he also was part of the Beavers’ 4×400-meter relay quartet that finished second on Saturday to earn All-NSIC honors for Duran, Devontae Daley, Zaccharius Brown, and Hambira. The Beavers finished second in 3:14.78. MSU, Mankato won the relay in 3:12.05.
Minot State’s quartet broke the all-time school record of 3:15.44 run in 1998 by Gabe Iverson, Mike Lunn, Keith Jorgenson, and Trevor Sinclair. The pair of runner-up finishes helped rack up the team points for the Minot State men who finished 10th with 31 points. The Beaver women also added points to their team total on Saturday and finished 12th with 10 points. Host Minnesota State, Mankato won both team titles.
Adding to those awesome performances were middle-distance runners Sidra Sadowsky in the women’s 800 meters, and Peyton Tuhy and Daley in the men’s 800 as all three turned in top-8 finishes and scored for the Beavers. Sadowsky finished 8th in the women’s 800 in a career-best and NCAA Division II school-record time of 2:13.64. She broke her own previous D-II record of 2:16.57 run last season. Tuhy finished 7th in a career-best 1:55.14 in the men’s 800 and Daley was 8th in 1:55.64. Adding another stellar performance on the day was the women’s 4×100 relay team of Summer Krebsbach, De’Andre Cornwall, Tandy Plainichek, and Autumn Wright who broke the all-time school record with a 6th-place finish in 47.76 seconds. The Beaver quartet broke the record of 48.41 run by Sienna Dailey, Allie Helterbran, Dijah Nash, and Mary Roy in 2014.
