MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins beat Toronto 7-2 to bump the Blue Jays back in the AL wild-card race. Nick Gordon drove in four runs and Michael Pineda won his third straight start for the Twins. The loss was especially costly for Toronto. The Blue Jays fell a full game behind New York for the second spot and three games behind wild-card leader Boston. Left fielder Lourdes Gurriel Jr. exited in the fifth inning after teammate Randal Grichuk accidentally stepped on his right hand in the outfield. X-rays were negative.
IOWA CITY — The University of Iowa is adding the sport of women’s wrestling and will begin competing during the 2023-24 season. Iowa athletic director Gary Barta says women’s wrestling has been designated as an emerging sport by the NCAA.
Barta says a search for a coach begins this fall.
Barta says men’s coach Tom Brands will be heavily involved in starting the program.
The addition of women’s wrestling comes a little more than a year after three men’s sports were dropped in the middle of the pandemic and is part of a settlement of a title nine lawsuit against the school.
