AM-1300 KGLO — Minnesota Twins at Milwaukee — pre-game 12:30, first pitch 1:10

 

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Luis Urías delivered a game-ending sacrifice fly in the ninth inning to bring home Andrew McCutchen as the Milwaukee Brewers edged the Minnesota Twins 7-6. McCutchen started the winning rally with a one-out single off Tyler Duffey, who then walked Kolten Wong and Hunter Renfroe to load the bases. Urías followed with a fly ball, and McCutchen slid home head first well ahead of right fielder Alex Kiriloff’s throw. Urías homered earlier in the game and Renfroe and Wong also went deep. Renfroe has homered in four of the Brewers’ five games since the All-Star break.

 

 

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Minnesota Twins slugger Miguel Sanó has been activated from the 60-day injured list after missing nearly three months with torn meniscus in his left knee. Sanó hurt his knee April 26 while celebrating the Twins’ 5-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers in a game that was decided on the final play. He played four days later but left the game early with knee pain and later underwent surgery. Sano was batting just .093 with one homer and three RBI in 17 games at the time he went on the injured list. But he’s provided plenty of punch in the past. The Twins announced the move before starting a two-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday. Sano batted ninth in the lineup on Tuesday night, going 0-for-2 with a strikeout before being lifted midway through the game for All-Star Luis Arraez.

 

 

INDIANAPOLIS — The nation’s longest-tenured FBS head football coach, Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz, told reporters at the Big Ten Media Days in Indianapolis on Tuesday that he’s ready for the 2022 season to begin.

Ferentz says he’s as concerned as he’s ever been about the path college football is on right now.

Ferentz says his message for this year’s team is the same as it’s been in previous years.

Ferentz feels confident about this year’s teams with a number of veterans returning.

Iowa opens the season September 3rd hosting South Dakota State.

 

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Former Wisconsin football coach Barry Alvarez says the Rose Bowl will always be important to the Big Ten, but making the College Football Playoff is the priority for today’s players. The future of the Rose Bowl as a showcase game, mostly featuring teams from Big Ten and Pac-12 on New Year’s Day, was already murky as the College Football Playoff creeps toward expansion. Now that the Big Ten has poached Southern California and UCLA from the Pac-12, it remains to be seen if the West Coast’s Power Five conference will still be an important part of the Rose Bowl. Alvarez was a former coach at Mason City High School and assistant at the University of Iowa.

 

 

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren says the conference will be bold and aggressive as college sports goes through a period of sweeping change. He left the door open for more expansion after the league added Southern California and UCLA for the 2024 season. Warren says the future could involve more expansion. He says the Big Ten will be strategic and look for schools that add value to the conference. The Big Ten’s big moves came less than a year after Texas and Oklahoma announced plans to leave the Big 12 for the SEC.
