MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Ronald Torreyes was hit by a bases-loaded pitch in a three-run 12th inning to give the Minnesota Twins a 9-8 victory over the Chicago White Sox that kept their lead in the American League Central at five games. Marwin Gonzalez hit the tying two-run single off José Ruiz. Then Torreyes, a September roster addition who has only six plate appearances for the Twins this season, crouched in front of a 2-1 fastball that grazed his right forearm as he lowered it over the plate.

 

 

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have set another major league home run record, becoming the first team in history to have five players go deep 30 or more times in one season. Miguel Sanó gave the Twins the all-time mark with his 30th homer, a three-run shot to the third deck in left field off Chicago White Sox left-hander Ross Detwiler. Nelson Cruz (37), Max Kepler (36), Eddie Rosario (31) and Mitch Garver (30) all made it before Sanó.

 

 

AMES — Iowa State coach Matt Campbell says even without starting center Colin Newell the offense line made major progress in a loss to Iowa. Campbell says Newell is questionable for Saturday’s game against Louisiana-Monroe.

Campbell says it was the best game the offensive line has played against the Hawkeyes.

Campbell likes the balance on offense through two games. Ten different receivers have caught a pass and five running backs have at least 10 carries.

Campbell says the next step for the offense is to do a better job finishing drives.

ISU hit Iowa with a couple of big plays and Louisiana-Monroe’s attacking defense the Cyclones may get more opportunities on Saturday.

Kickoff on Saturday at Jack Trice Stadium is scheduled for 11 o’clock

 

 

AMES — Iowa State Athletic Director Jamie Pollard says he has no idea what happened to University of Iowa band members during Saturday’s football game in Ames. Iowa Athletic Director Gary Barta released a statement on Monday saying the University had been made aware of inappropriate actions toward members of the band and staff.

Pollard says they are waiting to find out what happened.

Hawkeye Marching Band director Eric Bush told ESPN that the athletic department is taking the lead in the investigation, and that he doesn’t want to give out any details yet because they’re still trying to collect information from the students and trying to figure out what events took place.

 

 

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State is exploring construction of a multi-use “arts, culture and community district’ between Hilton Coliseum and Jack Trice Stadium.

The school announced the plan Tuesday, saying athletic director Jamie Pollard and Iowa State Research Park President Rick Sanders will lead a feasibility study on the area, which is mostly a series of parking lots.

Iowa State President Wendy Wintersteen transferred oversight of the Iowa State Center, a series of buildings near the basketball coliseum and the football stadium, to the athletic department. The proposed plan would also look into relocating commuter and football game day parking to a new parking area east of the stadium.
