Logan Morrison's RBI double in the 11th inning broke the tie and Austin Jackson added a two-run double as the Seattle Mariners outlasted the Minnesota Twins 4-1 on Sunday. Reliever Kevin Jepsen (2-6) lost his Minnesota debut after being picked up before Friday's trading deadline. Jepsen walked two batters and struck out Nelson Cruz with two runners on. Minnesota begins an important four-game series at Toronto with RHP Ervin Santana (2-1, 3.78) facing new Blue Jays LHP David Price (9-4, 2.53). Santana allowed eight runs - six earned - in a loss to Pittsburgh. Price will be making his Toronto debut.
Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will likely continue his recent tradition of sitting out of the preseason. Peterson hasn't played in the last three preseasons, and coach Mike Zimmer says he isn't inclined to give AP carries unless he wants them. Peterson himself said he'll wait until Week One against the 49ers to see the field.
Sylvia Fowles dropped 19 points in her second game with Minnesota as the Lynx rolled the Shock, 86-80 at the B-O-K Center in Tulsa Saturday. Maya Moore paced the Lynx with 20 points. Tricia Liston added 13 in 15 minutes off the bench. The Lynx have won seven of their past eight games, and lead the Western Conference with a 15-and-4 record. They return to action Tuesday against the Sparks.
