MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Eduardo Escobar got a career-high five hits, including a homer and a triple, and the Minnesota Twins batted around twice in a 20-6 rout of the Detroit Tigers on Friday night. The 20 runs are the most in a major league game this season. Danny Santana had a homer and four RBIs and Oswaldo Arcia and Trevor Plouffe also homered for the Twins.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves, Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers can finally complete the long-discussed blockbuster trade that will send Kevin Love to Cleveland on Saturday. The Cavaliers are sending Wiggins and Anthony Bennett to Minnesota for Love. They will also send Miami's 2015 first-round draft pick to the 76ers in the three-team deal.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Chiefs offensive tackle Donald Stephenson has been suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Stephenson was a fill-in starter last season but was expected to anchor the right side of the line this year. He remains eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games, including Saturday night's game against Minnesota.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings are spending another $19.7 million for their new stadium to make sure it has the features they want. The Vikings say their contribution now stands at $525.6 million, a little more than half of the roughly billion-dollar project. Taxpayers are paying the rest. Rising steel costs have pushed the overall price tag to $1.023 billion.
