MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Pinch-hitter Ryan Jeffers broke a tie with a two-run, two-out homer in a three-run eighth inning, and the Minnesota Twins beat Texas 7-5 and sent the Rangers to a season-high seventh straight loss. In a matchup of division leaders. Minnesota tied a season high with five homers and overcame a 5-2, fifth-inning deficit. Michael A. Taylor homered twice for Minnesota, and Royce Lewis and Kyle Farmer also went deep. Texas, which has led the AL West since April 9, is just one game ahead of Houston and Seattle. AL Central-leading Minnesota opened a six-game lead over second-place Cleveland.




IOWA CITY — Iowa defensive coordinator Phil Parker credits consistency with the Hawkeyes continued success on defense. Parker is entering his 25th season on the Iowa staff and his 13th as defensive coordinator.

Iowa gave up only a little more than 13 points per game last season and that unit looks strong once again. Parker says it is based on sound fundamentals and limiting mistakes.

Parker says the Hawkeyes have played a similar style of defense for several years.

With a season under his belt Xavier Nwankpa could have a breakout season at safety. Nwankpa stepped into the lineup in a Music City Bowl victory over Kentucky after Kaevon Merriweather opted out and returned an interception for a touchdown.

Nwankpa says as a sophomore he is a much better player.

The Hawkeyes open at home on September 2nd against Utah State.
