 MINNEAPOLIS - Eddie Rosario hit a grand slam in a nine-run first inning and the Minnesota Twins routed the Arizona Diamondbacks 12-5 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep. Bartolo Colon (5-10) allowed four runs over six innings for his third win in five decisions since being signed by the Twins. The 44-year-old righty became the 18th pitcher in major league history to defeat all 30 teams. Arizona lefty T.J. McFarland, making his first start since July 1, 2014, was chased after getting only one out and allowing run-scoring hits to Byron Buxton, Jorge Polanco, Max Kepler and Chris Gimenez. McFarland (4-5) also walked two batters and was charged with seven earned runs, raising his ERA in August to 14.34.


 

 

MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Vikings have signed former Gophers quarterback Mitch Leidner. The Lakeville native was not selected in the 2017 NFL draft. The 6-foot-3, 228-pound Leidner attended the Baltimore Ravens rookie mini-camp but did not sign with the team. The Vikings now have five quarterbacks on their roster. Leidner finished his career with the Gophers ranking second in passing attempts with 1,029 and completions with 580. He ranked third in career passing yards at 7,287 and fifth in passing touchdowns with 36. Other former Gophers on the Vikings roster are Isaac Fruechte and Marcus Sherels. The Vikings also announced that the team has waived linebacker Darnell Sankey.
