The Minnesota Twins were in no position to disagree.

Minnesota’s Eddie Rosario, Bobby Wilson and Max Kepler all left early because of heat illness on a scorching afternoon, and the Cubs beat the Twins 14-9.

Jason Heyward had four of the Cubs’ 20 hits, Ben Zobrist had three RBI and Chicago had a pair of five-run innings. The Cubs rallied from 3-0 and 7-4 deficits and have scored at least 10 runs in three straight games for the first time since April 2003.

Albert Almora Jr. had three hits and drove in two runs as the Cubs won their third in a row. He exited in the fifth after experiencing leg cramps related to dehydration.

Choo matched the streak that the Philadelphia Phillies’ Odubel Herrera put together March 30-May 19.

Honestly, I don’t feel anything special, Choo said afterward. I’m just happy for winning the first game of a three-game series.

Yovani Gallardo (2-0), making his third start since joining Texas on June 17, retired his first 10 batters and allowed all three runs on four hits and one walk in 7 1/3 seven innings. Gallardo struck out seven.

The 32-year-old who grew up in nearby Fort Worth is in his second stint with the Rangers after being released by Milwaukee in March and designated for assignment by Cincinnati in April.

Quietly, Kornet played reasonably well for the Knicks over the past two months of the season. His 39.2 percent shooting is misleading because Kornet took nearly two-thirds of his shots from beyond the arc. His .516 true shooting percentage was much more solid, and Kornet was an above-average shot blocker, as well. So bringing Kornet back on a full NBA contract after he was on a two-way deal last season makes sense.

Signing Kornet to a one-year deal using his non-Bird rights protects New York’s cap space for the summer of 2019, when the Knicks hope to be in the bidding for Kyrie Irving. However, the money is small enough that a multiyear deal might have offered more upside without much additional risk for New York.

A two-year deal for Hezonja, by contrast, would have carried some risk given his higher salary. Nonetheless, signing the former No. 5 overall pick by the Orlando Magic to a one-year deal severely limits the upside for the Knicks if he develops as they hope. New York would then have to re-sign Hezonja using either cap space, the midlevel exception or non-Bird rights that would pay him a maximum of $7.8 million.

Marc Gasol had 14 points and 11 rebounds.

It was really fun, Brooks said. Especially with these guys. They made it feel like home, and they never got at me for a shot I took.

Memphis won its opener for the second straight year, a first in franchise history.

We were not perfect by any means, Gasol said. But we were consistent with our effort and very unselfish. That to me is the most important thing.

To keep it honest, he was calling a lot of us, and I feel that he was calling myself, an S.O.B., and that’s not OK and very disrespectful. So I plan to kneel until the president apologizes.

Allen, the 17th pick in the 2017 draft, had been a key part of Washington’s defensive line. He’ll be replaced by second-year lineman Anthony Lanier, who earned a roster spot last season as an undrafted free agent. He’s been inactive for the first five games this season. Lanier played in four games last season. Gruden said Lanier continues to improve his strength and has good length; he is 6-foot-6 with long arms.

But Allen played with a savviness the coaches liked. He has started in the nickel package and has averaged 30 snaps per game. Allen has only one sack, but he has consistently applied pressure and has helped collapse the pocket, enabling the edge rushers to record sacks.

Just playing the position like a veteran, Gruden said of Allen. He’s a young player, but he plays it like a veteran. He has great fundamentals, great idea of run-pass and how to get off blocks. He has strong hands and he was getting a consistent pass-rush push. Just all-around, he’s played well.

Cowboys players mum after meeting with Jerry Jones over his national anthem comments

One quick reminder: We allow our panel to change up to two picks before Friday to account for late-breaking news and injuries. So be sure to check back then. Remember, these are straight up picks too, not against the spread. We’ll have something for you big-time bettors out there on Saturday.

I think it’s always going to be a part of you, Ryan acknowledged, grimacing a little.. There are things throughout your life that motivate you to be the best player that you can be, that get you out of bed in the morning. For sure, from a big-picture standpoint, you use all those things as motivation. But honestly, it’s about this 2017 team. Seeing how good we can be. Seeing how good we can be offensively. Seeing how we can be better from last week to this week. That’s the mindset you have to have during the regular season, during the postseason. You have to be locked in week to week.

Quinn struck down any suggestion that Sarkisian and Ryan are struggling to mesh.

I love the connection that they have, the head coach said. We hit a couple of ice spots and didn’t nail it like we need to. But as far as our team, I love where we’re headed. We’ve got good guys. We know how to feature them and know how to use them.

Tennessee kicker Ryan Succop went 5 for 5 to break the NFL record for most consecutive successful field goals inside of 50 yards. He connected from 48, 32 and 40 yards in the first half and then hit from 23 and 48 yards in the third.

Jones said on Sunday that players who disrespect the flag by taking a knee during the anthem would not play.

He cited a conversation he had with President Donald Trump on the matter, who he says reminded him of the NFL’s game ops policy. On Wednesday, those players were questioned about his comments.

Most players declined to comment. However, some information could be gathered on how the players feel by what little was said, mostly by David Irving, Damontre Moore, and Orlando Scandrick.

Irving and Moore are the only two players on the Cowboys who have carried out any type of demonstration during the national anthem. Most recently, they both raised fists at the end of the anthem this past Sunday.

Jones and the Cowboys took a knee before the national anthem prior to their Monday Night Football game against the Cardinals in Week 3 before ultimately standing up with linked arms.

I can’t say enough about the understanding and the awareness of our team, and these young men that basically said, ‘you know, that makes sense.’ There’s no need for us to talk about unity and equality and have 60 percent of this country mad at you because you’re not perceived to be honoring the flag, Jones said afterward. And this was a way to do both.

It’s conceivable that many matchups this week were decided by D/STs, as three from the 1 p.m. ET block scored at least 20 fantasy points, marking the first week that at least that many D/STs scored at least that well since Week 3 in 2016. In addition, there were 10 touchdowns scored by D/STs combined during the 1 p.m. ET game block, one shy of the record (since at least 1940) during that specific weekly time block set in 2002 Week 14 (11).

This week EJ Manuel was taking over at quarterback for the injured Derek Carr.

Manuel said coming in that he was looking to Get [Cooper’s] confidence rolling and everything like that and get him some touches early so we can make some plays.

That didn’t really happen. Cooper saw his first pass ten minutes into the first quarter on third and 12 and it was high Coop couldn’t haul it in. Coop didn’t see another pass until the fourth quarter which he caught for 8 yards.

In the meantime there were plays such as this one, which Del Rio was talking about in which Coop got past his man, but Manuel didn’t even look that way, opting to throw short to a well covered Seth Roberts.

Thompson would then either look to trade Hundley or keep him around while waiting to rack up a compensatory pick in the future. The Packers reportedly took calls on Hundley during Day 2 of this year’s draft, and Thompson is a product of the Ron Wolf tree, which saw the Packers develop and trade away backups Matt Hasselbeck and Mark Brunell behind Favre.

Last year in an article for the Players’ Tribune, Watt rattled off all injuries he’s endured since 2015. The list reads like a busy night for an ER staff: one broken hand, staph infection, two torn abs, three torn adductor muscles, one herniated disc (twice). Even though at the time Watt promised that he was just getting started, it’s fair to wonder if the 28-year-old will ever reach his three-time Defensive Player of the Year heights again.

Watt hasn’t just been a once in a generation player in his career, either. He has made a huge difference off the field, too. It can be easy to make fun of someone who so sincerely lives and breathes football, but Watt even earned his haters’ respect when he raised more than $37 million for Hurricane Harvey relief.
