Ian Kinsler lines a home run to left field in the top of the 3rd inning.


MINNEAPOLIS Albert Pujols hit his 623rd career homer and passed Stan Musial to move into sixth on the career RBI list with 1,951 (per Elias), helping the Los Angeles Angels beat the Minnesota Twins 2-1 after a four-hour rain delay Saturday.

Pujols had three RBI to pass Stan Musial for sixth-most in baseball history with 1,954. Ian Kinsler had three hits for Los Angeles, which lost for the first time in seven games.

Minnesota’s Fernando Romero (3-2) had control issues from the outset, but managed to complete five innings to win for the first time in six starts. He allowed five hits and struck out five while throwing 94 pitches. Romero also hit two batters and threw two wild pitches.

Los Angeles starter Nick Tropeano (3-4) struggled for the second consecutive outing, allowing five earned runs in 4 1/3 innings. Tropeano allowed five earned runs in 4 2/3 innings last Monday against Kansas City.

Trailing 3-2 in the fifth, Mitch Garver doubled, Cave had an RBI single and Ehire Adrianza an RBI triple off Tropeano for a 4-3 Twins lead. Escobar had an RBI double two batters later against Cam Bedrosian.

Angels: C Martin Maldonado, who fouled a ball off his foot Friday, was back behind the plate. He was hit by a pitch in the second inning.

Twins: Brian Dozier got a day off with Escobar starting at 2B. … CF Byron Buxton (broken left big toe) and 1B Joe Mauer (neck/concussion) did some pregame base-running Sunday. Mauer also took batting practice and did some fielding. After the game, the team announced Mauer will begin a rehab assignment Tuesday at Triple-A Rochester.

Angels: Open a three-game series Monday in Seattle with LHP Andrew Heaney (3-4, 3.12) scheduled to start against Mariners LHP Wade LeBlanc (1-0, 2.94).

Twins: RHP Jake Odorizzi (3-3, 4.24) is scheduled to get the ball Tuesday in Detroit to begin a six-game road trip. LHP Blaine Hardy (2-1, 3.66) is the scheduled Tigers starter.Albert Pujols passes Stan Musial on RBI list with 623rd career homer

NBA coach Steve Kerr blasts idiotic NFL anthem policy


The NFL isn’t merely being criticized by pandering politicians or labor unions who weren’t consulted on their anthem policy compromise, they’re catching it from other sports as well.

Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr blasted the NFL for its decision to mandate that players stand for the anthem or stay in the locker room, calling it typical of the way football does business.

The NBA also requires players to stand for the anthem, but professional basketball has also operated from a position of trust with its labor force, and a track record of social involvement and willingness to take stands. The NBA also consulted with players when formulating their anthem policy, which seemed to go a long way with labor.

Kerr and the Warriors are also used to sticking it to the man, as their invitation to the White House for winning last year’s NBA title was rescinded by Donald Trump after a number of players said they wouldn’t go. Kerr also referred to Trump as a blowhard, which gives him something in common with at least one NFL owner.

The response is what most would expect from players with pride in their games and we’ll likely hear similar musings in the months leading up to the start of the regular season. That’s when there will be an actual determination about how Dallas’ plan at receiver has worked out.

Ryan Tannehill will wear a brace to protect his twice-injured left knee

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill missed the end of the 2016 season when he injured his left knee in December. He then missed the entire 2017 season when he injured the same knee in training camp. Now he thinks it’s time to protect that knee more carefully.

I’ll wear a brace, Tannehill said, via the Sun-Sentinel. It does nothing structurally. It’s purely to prevent what started that whole train wreck with my injury.

But that’s just for the season, when he’s at risk of getting hit. In the non-contact Organized Team Activities going on now, Tannehill is without a brace and says he can do everything he needs to do on the field.

Packers sign Marcedes Lewis


Marcedes Lewis posted a photo on social media of him signing a contract with the Packers. The former Jaguars tight end will complement Jimmy Graham with his blocking, giving Green Bay a formidable 1-2 punch at the position.

The Jaguars released Lewis in March after they added free agent tight ends Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Niles Paul. It ended a 12-year run in Jacksonville for Lewis, a first-round pick in 2006.

I didn’t want to downplay anything, Colton says of his dating history. I want to reassure you that the reason I’m here is I want to get to know you. Relationships are built on honesty and trust, and you will never have that doubt with me.

The team announced the addition of a new player to the group on Thursday. Kyle Wilson has been signed to the team after trying out during their recent rookie minicamp.

Wilson went undrafted in April after wrapping up his time at Arkansas State. He had 173 tackles, 26.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks and an interception over the last two seasons.

The move leaves the Eagles with 11 linebackers on the 90-man roster, although that number includes Worrilow so there are 10 competing for roles on the team this year.

Though Becca sees Colton as a catch, she can’t seem to shake the unnerving feeling.

I didn’t think it would be this hard early on, Becca says. It’s difficult knowing I have to break some hearts.

As Becca hands out the roses, Colton worries his time in the mansion is up.

I’m just hoping she can look past my past, he says.

As one of the new pieces inserted into the offensive-line puzzle, Omameh was not given a crash course documenting just how badly the line regressed last season. There are many, many reasons the Giants plummeted to 3-13, but a case can be made — and had been made — that the complete disintegration of the offensive line was the main culprit. As a result, there will be three new starters on the line and a fourth player, Ereck Flowers, is moving from left to right tackle in what is a near-complete overhaul.

To a man, everybody who is in that O-line room and everybody that’s going to be on that field playing offensive line, we understand what the job is and we feel that we’ll be fully capable of getting that job done, Omameh said.

Joe Thomas backs Cavs with his own jersey bet


The MLB draft will be held Monday to Wednesday, and what will follow both the first round and the whole process is the assigning of grades.

The picture became a hit on social media, and Jones and his twin brother, Ravens linebacker Alvin Jones, both tweeted that the instinct to help someone in need comes from the way they were raised. Aaron and Alvin were raised by Alvin Jones Sr. and Vurgess Jones, both of whom are retired after long careers in the Army. Alvin Jones Sr. told the Packers’ website last year that he prided himself on raising sons with the right values.

What I’ve told Aaron and Alvin, this is a reward for all the hard work that you guys have put in, Alvin Sr. said. What mom and I always try to do with them, even now, is make sure they understand why they’re successful. That, first and foremost, is the blessing from the man upstairs. Secondly, we try to keep them humble and working hard. No matter how much success you have, there’s always something you can improve so continue to work hard, stay humble and good things will always happen for you.

Mount was a sixth-round pick of the Titans in 2015 and had an interception in four games as a rookie. He played one game for the Colts in 2016 and spent the 2017 offseason with them until being waived in August.

Then there is Chris Webber, whose terrific NBA career helped him overcome calling the timeout he didn’t have at the end of the 1993 NCAA finals. Of course, since his Michigan team and its banners were all vaporized by the NCAA enforcement committee a few years later, did that ever really happen at all? Smith should only be that lucky.

The only surprise with the news that my amazing teammate Larry Brooks, will become a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame is that he hasn’t already been in there for 10 or 15 years. I’m sure the news has Dan Boyle in a good mood, wherever he is.

On Saturday morning, four teams of girls from the sixth through the eighth grades played the first doubleheader at Shannon Forde Field in Little Falls, N.J.

MLB raised $250,000 in a nationwide auction to help finance the creation of this park to honor the Mets’ late media-relations executive.

Nice work there by everyone.

Pat Bowlen’s daughter is disappointed by inaccurate comments


Thursday saw dueling statements released by Beth Bowlen-Wallace, the daughter of longtime Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, and the trustees appointed by her father to oversee the future of the team.

However it plays out, everyone will know more about whether Beckham is willing to take a stand once he gets clearance to practice. And that’s apparently coming very soon.

James once had more than 25,000 fans show up just to watch him give a speech. In August 2014, the city of Akron wanted to welcome James back home so it essentially threw a giant rally at the University of Akron’s football stadium, which was nearly at capacity, including thousands of seats on the field.

Judge probably doesn’t even let sentences run on him.

Get your popcorn ready for the newest edition of Madden, which will feature Terrell Owens on the cover. This is the Hall of Fame version of the popular EA Sports football video game  (a regular cover player will be announced in June) and it will have Owens, who was inducted into the most recent class of Canton, dressed up as a Cowboys receiver. That has plenty of people questioning it, even if he’s best remembered as a member of Dallas. He was drafted by the 49ers and spent the majority of his career with San Francisco from a most years on one team perspective.

Bird was slated to hit sixth and play first base.

The 25-year-old had missed all season following surgery to remove a bone spur from his right ankle.

Regardless, there was no unanimity. There was no vote. And this becomes further proof that, in its quest to make things better when it comes to the national anthem, the NFL actually made things worse.

You can see the signs even in May. Adams, the first-round draft pick from 2017, raised the competitive energy at practice, telling the defensive backs to be a soldier out there and acted like a completion in seven-on-seven was third-and-5 in the Super Bowl.

Monty Grow gets nearly 22-year prison sentence


Former NFL player Monty Grow was sentenced to nearly 22 years in prison and ordered to pay about $18 million in restitution for a health care fraud scheme, the Associated Press reports.

Defensive end J.J. Watt, who wasn’t with the team when the inmates hit the fan last year, admitted that conversations have since occurred among the players. We’ve talked about it in the locker room amongst some of the guys, Watt told reporters. That’s the most important thing, is we’re handling it amongst each other. We speak openly and freely in the locker room. What I said a while back still stands today, is that there have been a lot of conversations and dialogues that have been opened up in the locker room that haven’t been there before. I’ve learned a lot of things and I’ve definitely had conversations that we’ve never had before.

Lastly, I asked Borland how much football he now watches.

I don’t watch football at all, he said. Not out of protest or anger. Just hard-earned apathy.

Mike White could fit with the Patriots as well, and he might be available later in the draft than Lauletta or Falk.

Similar to Falk, he has the size (6’4 and 225 pounds) and arm strength to power the ball downfield. And similar to Lauletta, he’s accurate, as he completed 67.3 percent of his pass attempts for Western Kentucky in 2016 and 65.7 in 2017. In both of those seasons, White finished with 4,100-plus passing yards, and he shined in 2016 while averaging 10.5 yards per throw.

Given his glacial 40-yard dash time of 5.09 seconds at the scouting combine, White will never be mistaken for a track star. But after nearly three full seasons of starting experience, he has a refined pocket presence and knows how to avoid pressure.

Jacksonville Jaguars unveil new old-school look


The Jacksonville Jaguars led the Nike uniform revolution five years ago with a unique, somewhat controversial look, capped by a two-toned helmet.

Say goodbye to excess, Jacksonville.

What began as a hashtag is becoming just that: a movement. And that’s the phrasing Griffin prefers. A movement implies he’s far from finished. He knows he’s inspiring every kid with any type of birth defect. (I’ll set the path for them, and they’ll just walk it.) He knows he can change the world. (When people see me on the field, they’ll think, Wow, he’s really doing this.) Whereas a feel-good story is flowery and abstract, a movement never sleeps.

But a movement could also die off if Griffin doesn’t play on Sundays.

In an epic 10th frame, Golden strings together three straight strikes and yells, That’s how you end it! to hand Griffin the L, 152 to 138. Not that Griffin caught the heroics. He was sprawled on top of that circular cushion with his brother, tapping through Instagram, in a state of relaxation. Sad case, he says, smiling, before walking off and perching a leg atop the back of another couch to relax.

Maybe the Giants like what they have in 2017 third-round pick Davis Webb, but they’re not sold he’s the guy of the future, it’d make sense for the team to search for that guy [checks watch] right about now.

Of course, it’s possible Gettleman is saying all this with the knowledge he isn’t interested in taking Saquon Barkley at No. 2 and that he’s in the market for a quarterback. It’s lying season, after all.

But if it’s an act, Gettleman played the role of Football Guy Who Wants To Win Super Bowl 23 Instead Of Super Bowl 53 convincingly.

Over his mild hip injury, left-hander CC Sabathia came off the 10-day to start and allowed two unearned runs in 4 1/3 innings. Pitching for the first time since April 6, Sabathia was pulled from a 2-2 game with a runner on first and one out in the Blue Jays due to his pitch count being at 71.

After batting third in the Yankees’ first 16 games, Giancarlo Stanton dropped to cleanup and was 1-for-3 with an infield single and walk.

2018 NFL Schedule: Here are the 10 best games, including the NFC Championship Game rematch


2018 NFL Schedule: Here are the 10 best games, including the NFC Championship Game rematch More Do you wonder what Tom Brady will be doing when the NFL season opens and his New England Patriots are playing host to the Houston Texans? You know, the Brady who supposedly hasn’t committed to playing in 2018? Yeah, OK. We know exactly what he’ll be doing that first NFL Sunday.

A piece of my heart will always be in football, but my mind ended it. Borland, who started playing tackle football in ninth grade, finds it preposterous that children are still playing the sport with fewer rules protecting them than the adults in the pros. Even the rules in the NFL like limits on contact in practice and a recent rule change to outlaw leading with the helmet are only small steps.Those are all incremental improvements, Borland said.A lot of it is PR. When they do those things, they’re able to say the game is safer than ever. Safer than ever is a euphemism for dangerous and football is inherently dangerous.

In his third year at Central Florida, 2015, O’Leary told Griffin to stay home in St. Pete for the summer while Shaquill trained in Orlando. He says O’Leary even considered banishing him to a junior college.

I wasn’t playing because I had one hand; I wasn’t going to be naive anymore, Griffin says. That’s when I really felt that I was here for the wrong reasons.

Griffin spent the summer towing trucks for his father 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., working out and then cleaning offices 8 p.m. to midnight.

O’Leary wouldn’t be around for long, though. After starting the 2015 season 0-8, he retired. That offseason, Scott Frost was hired. And Griffin felt released into the wild, like that four-year-old kid again.

Working twice as hard as everyone else could now reap real rewards. He remembers hearing Frost’s voice in the weight room. Feeling his presence. When they spoke, there was sincere eye contact. So Griffin kept running and running and chasing ball-carriers 60, 70, 80 yards every snap in practice to the point of literally throwing up. He’d vomit, wipe his mouth clean and run some more.

Despite interest in rookie quarterbacks, Gase says he’s committed to Tannehill


Ryan Tannehill remains Miami’s quarterback. And yet the Dolphins continue to show interest in members of the incoming rookie class.

During a recent visit to PFT Live, coach Adam Gase addressed the persistent belief that he’s not committed to Tannehill.

We’ll see what he does with that in 2018. If Tannehill doesn’t thrive, Gase may need to get a new quarterback, or fans may start clamoring for a new coach.

Last year, Quinn leaned on free agency to continue the remodeling. The Lions opened up the checkbook to acquire right tackle Rick Wagner and guard T.J. Lang, replacing former Martin Mayhew draft picks Riley Reiff and Larry Warford.

Now Quinn must find center Travis Swanson’s replacement. After two injury-plagued seasons, the Lions allowed the former third-round pick to walk in free agency, leaving an opening in the starting lineup.

Glasgow is projected to slide to center, but with two years of starting experience at guard, the team has some flexibility coming into the draft.

Among the players currently on the roster who could contend for the starting job are Dahl, Corey Robinson and free-agent additions Kenny Wiggins and Wesley Johnson.

Dahl started three games at left guard for the Lions late last season. Wiggins started 16 games for the Chargers at right guard and has previous experience with new offensive line coach Jeff Davidson. Johnson was the Jets starting center in 2017. And Robinson, the Lions swing tackle, got a surprising start at guard last season.

Derrick can get it downhill, press the hole, hit the hole, and really turn it over and outrun people, general manager Jon Robinson said, per Jim Wyatt of the team’s official website. He can stick it up there and run over people. Dion can make people miss. He can kind of get lost in the wash up in there and squirt out, and be good out of the backfield.

The Titans also shored up their secondary by signing Malcolm Butler to a whopping five-year, $61 million deal that includes $30 million guaranteed. 

Considering last year’s Titans logged nine wins despite lacking flash, the retooled version has a real chance to propel the franchise back to double-digit wins for the first time since 2008. 

Finally, there are the Indianapolis Colts.

Lions’ T.J. Lang ready to leave last season’s injuries behind


Allen Park — Detroit Lions guard T.J. Lang spent half of last season on the injury report, but unlike the previous two years, none of those issues lingered into the offseason or required surgery.

I can’t make any predictions here, but this is the first time I’ve done an offseason workout in three years, so I’m definitely excited about that, Lang said during a Thursday press conference.

As Lang noted, the Lions’ line struggled with durability and production. Because of injuries, the team started 10 different combinations last year. And while not entirely the fault of the blocking, the ground game and pass protection both struggled. The Lions finished last in the NFL in rushing and quarterback Matthew Stafford was sacked 47 times, a career-high.

That faith proved misplaced as the team finished last in the league in rushing, both yards per game and yards per carry. Ameer Abdullah struggled in his first full season as the lead back, averaging a career-low 3.3 yards, ultimately leading to a decreased role down the stretch.

Shortly after the conclusion of the season, Quinn vowed to add competition at the position. He did so in free agency, picking up 250-pound LeGarrette Blount. The accomplished veteran brings a short-yardage element the Lions have lacked in recent years, but at 31 years old, probably isn’t going to be a guy taking 20 handoffs per week.

Given some of the other issues in the ground game, namely the blocking, and upcoming adjustments to the scheme, it’s not inconceivable the Lions attempt to make it work with the tailback collective they currently have under contract. But with such a deep, talented prospect pool, and little long-term security at the position beyond this season (Abdullah and Blount’s contracts expire at the end of this upcoming season), it wouldn’t be the best approach.
