Twins' Rosario one HR away from joining elite company

Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano might be the players Minnesota Twins fans were buzzing about before the season (and, again, now), but it is another rookie -- Eddie Rosario -- who could be joining some elite company. Rosario made history, of sorts, earlier this year when he homered on the first pitch he saw in the majors. But he hasn't stopped there. One more home run this year will...

Mauer continuing career trend of heating up in July

Is it the official start of summer? An appreciation of fireworks? Smelling hot dogs, hamburgers and brats on the grill? Whatever it is, Joe Mauer certainly has liked the month of July over his career and that trend has continued in 2015. With two days left in the month, Mauer is batting .314. This should really come as no surprise as Mauer has hit over .300 in July since 2007. In...

Preview: Lynx vs. Sun

Maya Moore has made it resoundingly clear with her recent play that she doesn't need a whole lot of help, particularly since she's become even harder to guard from long range. Regardless, the Minnesota Lynx have elected to provide a bit more assistance in their hobbled backcourt. The top team in the WNBA brought Renee Montgomery back to her original club earlier this week, and the...

Spurred by Kuemper's 34 saves, Wild post much-needed win

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Head coach Mike Yeo implored Darcy Kuemper to clear his mind during the NHL's holiday break last week, acknowledging the reality that Kuemper was a goaltender with his confidence shaken.

Notebook: Boddy-Calhoun has big game on big stage

MINNEAPOLIS -- Saturday should have been Gophers cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun's senior day. If not for a knee injury that cut his 2013 season short just two games in, Boddy-Calhoun entered 2014 as a redshirt junior. Given how well he played in the loss to Ohio State, Minnesota is sure glad Boddy-Calhoun will be back for one more year. After the Gophers fell behind 14-0 to the...
