MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Michael Brantley had his second four-hit game of the series and drove in four runs, and the Houston Astros had a season-high 20 hits and routed Minnesota 14-3 to take two of three from the Twins. Minnesota’s Michael Pineda left after four innings due to a reoccurrence of right forearm soreness that first bothered him June 1. In his second start since returning, he allowed three runs and six hits — raising his totals to 10 runs over 11 1/3 innings in his last three starts.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Former major league pitcher Jim “Mudcat” Grant has died at age 85. He was the first Black 20-game winner in the American League. He was also a key part of Minnesota’s first World Series team in 1965. The Twins announced Grant’s death. No cause was given. The right-hander spent less than four full seasons of his 14-year major league career with the Twins, but they were his best. He led the AL with 21 wins in 1965, while helping the Twins post a 102-60 record. He won two of three starts in the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

AMES — As Iowa State gets ready for its most anticipated football season. a more explosive passing game may help the offense take the next step. It is not a glaring weakness, especially for an offense that averaged 33 points and 195 yards of rushing in a season that concluded with a Fiesta Bowl win. However, ISU did average only a little over seven and-a-half yards per pass attempt.
That’s Cyclone coach Matt Campbell who says the ultimate goal is to win.
Offensive coordinator Tom Manning says it is about creating the right opportunities to take shots down the field.
Manning says it is also about taking what the defense gives you.
Iowa State opens the season September 4th at home against UNI.
