TERRE HAUTE, INDIANA — Iowa ran out of pitching and chances at an NCAA Regional in Terre Haute. Iowa pitchers hit 10 Indiana State batters and walked six as the Sycamores beat the Hawkeyes 11-8 in the championship round of the regional.

That’s Iowa coach Rick Heller. The Hawkeyes stayed alive earlier Sunday by edging North Carolina 6-5 in a 13-inning game.

The Hawkeyes finish the season with a record of 44-15.

The 44 wins ties a school record for wins in a season.




MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Triston McKenzie tossed five scoreless innings in his injury-delayed season debut, and the Cleveland Guardians beat the Minnesota Twins 2-1 on Sunday for a split of the four-game series. McKenzie had 10 strikeouts and only one baserunner, a two-out single by Michael Taylor in the third. Cleveland scored two runs in the seventh. Josh Naylor hit an RBI double and scored on Andrés Giménez’s triple. Twins starter Joe Ryan pitched 6 2/3 innings of two-hit ball. The Twins matched their season high with 16 strikeouts. Willi Castro homered in the eighth to cut the lead to 2-1.



MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Royce Lewis gave the Minnesota Twins a scare with an inadvertent somersault and a face-first landing. He said afterward he felt like he “ran into a car backward.” But he had no concussion symptoms or significant injury, just a sore shoulder and a scrape on his forehead. The play happened in the eighth inning of Minnesota’s loss to Cleveland on Sunday. Lewis tried to beat out a grounder and found first baseman Gabriel Arias in his way. He pulled up in an attempt to avoid a collision at the base and went sailing over Arias instead.



MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Twins slugger Joey Gallo was placed on the 10-day injured list on Saturday with a left hamstring strain. Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said Friday that Gallo has been dealing with the injury for “a little while now.” The team recalled outfielder Kyle Garlick from Triple-A St. Paul. Gallo is batting .188 with 11 homers and 23 RBIs in 46 games this season. It’s the second time on the injured list for Gallo this season after he missed 10 games in April with an intercostal strain.




DES MOINES — Stephen Ames sank an eight foot birdie putt on the 17th hole to take the lead as he won the Principal Charity Classic at the Wakonda Club in Des Moines. Ames finished at 17-under-par as he edged second place finisher Steve Stricker by a stroke to post his third win of the season on the PGA Tour Champions.

That was Ames on the Golf Channel after his win. He also won the event in 2021.

He pockets $300,000 with the win.




WASHINGTON (AP) — Kayla McBride scored a season-high 24 points and Tiffany Mitchell put back her own miss with 3.0 seconds left to help the Minnesota Lynx beat the Washington Mystics 80-78 on Saturday and avoided tying the franchise record for consecutive losses to open a season. Minnesota (1-6) lost seven straight to open the 2007 season. Mitchell took an inbounds pass on the right side and had a driving layup attempt blocked by Brittney Sykes but grabbed the offensive rebound and made the go-ahead layup. Ariel Atkins finished with 18 points, including four 3-pointers, and Shakira Austin had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Washington (3-3).




DES MOINES — Today is the latest registration deadline for most of the more than 40 sports offered at next month’s Summer Iowa Games. Spokesman Cory Kennedy says it is part of a new three-tiered registration system they are offering.

If you miss today’s deadline there is still time to register but Kennedy says the price will go up. Also, coaches registering a team do not need to include a roster at this time.

The summer games are July 7th through the 16th in Ames and the surrounding areas.
