MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Carlos Correa’s solo home run in the first inning and Nick Gordon’s two-run shot in the second gave the Minnesota Twins enough to hang on for a 3-2 victory to finish a three-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals. The Twins pulled within four games of first-place Cleveland in the AL Central race after allowing only 13 hits in the series. They had five relievers throw scoreless innings. Minnesota is 12-4 against Kansas City this season. The Twins hit the road for five games in Cleveland this weekend.
IOWA CITY — The Iowa offense is searching for answers heading into Saturday night’s game against Nevada. The Hawkeyes are last in the country in total offense by averaging only 158 yards per game and they are the only team in the country with just one offensive touchdown. Sophomore running back Gavin Williams says they are trying to move on after a 10-7 loss against Iowa State.
Williams believes the offense will make strides.
Despite being next to last in the country in quarterback rating Spencer Petras will again be the starter on Saturday.
Kickoff from Kinnick Stadium is scheduled for 6:30 on Saturday night, with the pre-game at 4:30 on AM-1300 KGLO
