MASON CITY — Newman High School announced two changes to their athletic department on Monday. Randy Fischels stepped down from both the athletic director and head boys basketball coaching positions this summer. Fischels was the athletic director for seven years and coached boys basketball for 16 seasons over two different tenures. Baseball coach Alex Bohl has added the athletic director position to his duties. A former assistant under Fischels, Jerry Gatton, has been named the school’s new boys basketball coach.

 

 

CHICAGO (AP) – Jorge Polanco hit his second three-run homer of the day as the Minnesota Twins scored six times in the second inning and routed the Chicago White Sox 10-2 to split a doubleheader Monday night.

Brian Dozier added a three-run drive off Carson Fulmer during the rally, and Minnesota bounced back from a 7-6 loss in the opener.

Twins starter Dillon Gee (1-0) retired the first 12 Chicago batters before rookie Nicky Delmonico homered leading off the fifth. Gee allowed only two hits and walked none through six innings while striking out four.

Adam Engel hit a solo shot in the ninth off Tyler Duffey, who followed Gee with three innings to earn his first save.

Polanco, who has five homers, hit a three-run homer off Derek Holland in the eighth inning of the opener to cut Minnesota’s deficit to 7-6. In homering for the first time in back-to-back games, Polanco did it in consecutive at-bats.

 

 

CHICAGO (AP) – The Minnesota Twins have placed All-Star third baseman Miguel Sano on the 10-day disabled list with a stress reaction in his left shin bone.

First baseman Kennys Vargas was recalled Monday from Triple-A Rochester for the fifth time this season to fill Sano’s spot. The Twins also designated left-hander Nik Turley as their 26th player for the doubleheader against in Chicago and summoned right-hander Tim Melville from Rochester so he could start the first game against the White Sox.

Sano was pulled from the game Saturday and sat out Sunday. He’s batting .267 with 15 doubles, 28 home runs and 77 RBIs in 111 games this season.

Vargas has hit .243 with nine doubles, eight homers and 30 RBIs in 51 games for the Twins.
