MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Nelson Cruz homered and had three RBIs and utility infielder Ehire Adrianza’s hustle keyed a six-run sixth as the Minnesota Twins topped the Seattle Mariners 10-5. The struggling Mariners lost for the 24th time in 33 games and are 16-41 after a 13-2 start.

 

MASON CITY — Newman jumped out to a 3-0 lead after the first inning and never looked back in a 10-0, five-inning win over Garner-Hayfield-Ventura last night. Kyle Armour picked up the win, striking out seven and allowing only two hits and a walk, and also helped out his cause with three runs batted in. Newman is now 13-2 on the season and will host West Hancock tonight.
