AM-1300 KGLO — Minnesota Twins at Cleveland — pre-game 11:30, first pitch 12:10


CLEVELAND (AP) — Joe Ryan pitched shutout ball for the second straight start and became only the second Minnesota starter to reach the eighth inning this season to lead the Twins over the AL-Central leading Cleveland Guardians 3-0. Jake Cave hit a solo homer in the second off Cody Morris and AL batting leader Luis Arraez added a two-run single in the ninth against Enyel De Los Santos as third-place Minnesota stopped an eight-game losing streak against Cleveland. The second-place Chicago White Sox moved within 3½ games of the Guardians. Cleveland had won the first three games of the five-game series.


IOWA CITY — A strange start to the season took a bizarre turn for Iowa as the Hawkeyes beat Nevada 27-0, a game that was halted three times due to lightning and did not end until after 1:30 Sunday morning. Hawkeye coach Kirk Ferentz says the locker room looked like a baseball clubhouse during the more than four hours of delays.

The offense made progress, in part because receivers Nico Ragaini and Keegan Johnson returned from injury.

The Hawkeyes open Big Ten play Saturday night at Rutgers.

Kickoff on Saturday is scheduled for 6 o’clock, with the pre-game at 4 o’clock on AM-1300 KGLO
