MASON CITY — After two years, Mason City High School is once again looking for a new athletic director. KGLO Sports has obtained an email that Tracy Johnson sent to staff this past Thursday, announcing that he had interviewed and was offered the position of athletic director at City High in Iowa City. Johnson said he appreciated all the work the staff does for students and athletes, and says the school has an incredible opportunity moving forward with the facility upgrades.

CHICAGO (AP) — Luis Arraez had three hits, including a tiebreaking RBI single in Minnesota’s four-run 10th inning, and the Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 6-3. Arraez’s leadoff grounder against Joe Kelly drove in pinch-runner Gilberto Celestino. Jorge Polanco added a sacrifice fly, and Alex Kirilloff made it 6-2 with a two-run single. The AL Central contenders faced off hours after a gunman opened fire on an Independence Day parade in suburban Chicago, killing at least six people. The White Sox talked to Major League Baseball about postponing the game, but it went on as scheduled.

CHICAGO — The Twins turned Major League Baseball’s first-ever centerfielder-to-third baseman triple play during Monday night’s game. During the seventh inning of the Twins’ win over the White Sox, Byron Buxton tracked down a deep fly ball at the right-center field wall on the run and threw into the infield, where third baseman Gio Urshela put out a pair of unaware Chicago baserunners to complete the first 8-5 triple play on record. The feat also marked the 16th triple play in Twins history, and the second involving only two players, joining a catcher-shortstop triple play that occurred back on July 25, 1976 — also against the White Sox.
