TONIGHT:
AM-1300 KGLO — Minnesota Twins at Boston — pre-game 5:30, first pitch 6:10

 

BOSTON (AP) — Josh Donaldson hit a two-run homer leading off the 10th inning and Jake Cave added a three-run shot to help the Minnesota Twins beat the Red Sox 9-6. Boston rallied from a four-run deficit and sent the game into extra innings on Kyle Schwarber’s two-run homer in the ninth. Donaldson and Jorge Polanco homered for the second straight game. Miguel Sanó hit a 495-foot homer that is the longest in the majors this year and one of the longest in the history of Fenway Park. It was just 7 feet shorter than Ted Williams’ 502-foot shot in 1946 that’s commemorated by a red seat in the Fenway bleachers.

 

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — Irv Smith Jr. has become the top tight end for the Minnesota Vikings. He brings his enviable blend of speed and strength to what promises to be a more prominent role in his third season. Smith has bigger goals for his burgeoning career, too, to be among the game’s best players at his position. That’s precisely where he was over three days this summer in Nashville, Tennessee. The informal, grassroots event was dubbed “Tight End University” by organizers Travis Kelce, George Kittle and Greg Olsen. Smith was invited to the group of more than 40 players, for tight ends only.

 

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves have finalized their acquisition of ace defender Patrick Beverley. They’re sending 2019 first-round draft pick Jarrett Culver and backup forward Juancho Hernangómez to the Memphis Grizzlies. The trade was agreed to in principle last week after the Grizzlies got the 33-year-old Beverley from the Los Angeles Clippers. Beverley came with veteran guard Rajon Rondo and young center Daniel Oturu in a swap for versatile guard Eric Bledsoe. The 6-foot-1 Beverley will bring feistiness and experience to a Timberwolves team short on both attributes. He has three NBA All-Defensive team selections on his resume.
