We're in the heart of college recruiting season as commits keep rolling in for North Dakota State and the University of North Dakota.

As you see the list of offers coming in for these newly minted college players, there was one player hanging out there until about 4 o'clock Wednesday afternoon that could have put NDSU at another level.

Pierre, South Dakota native Lincoln Kienholz is a three-star ranked quarterback who has blown up the recruiting world over the last two months. Kienholz has offers from over 20 schools, NDSU being one of them. >>> Full column here.

Josh Naylor belted a two-run homer with two outs in the 10th inning, capping a four-run rally that powered the Cleveland Guardians to a stunning 7-6 victory over the visiting Minnesota Twins on Wednesday.

The Twins scored three in the top of the 10th, then got the first out in the bottom of the 10th with the automatic runner at second base. A walk to Steven Kwan (3-for-4) and a wild pitch put runners at the corners for Amed Rosario, who hit an RBI double to cap a 4-for-4 night.

Jharel Cotton (2-2) replaced Emilio Pagan on the mound, and he retired Jose Ramirez on a lineout. Kwan then scored on a passed ball to bring the Guardians within one run. >>> Full story here.

On Sunday, that meant scoreless performances from Cody Stashak, who followed Paddack and threw 2⅔ innings, Caleb Thielbar, who struck out all three batters he faced, Joe Smith, Tyler Duffey and Emilio Pagán, who locked down the save after allowing a pair of baserunners in the ninth.
