The University of Minnesota Gophers topped La Tech 5-2 in extra innings SUnday afternoon before losing 1-0 to Alabama to end their historic season.

The Gophers finished 56-5 overall. The 56 wins is seven more than their previous record high for wins in a season and their five losses is six less than the previous program record.

Robbie Grossman and Max Kepler belted two-run homers to help power the Twins to an 8-4 win over the Royals on Sunday in the nightcap of a doubleheader at Target Field. With the split, Minnesota improved to 7-1 against Kansas City and has won all three series this season between the American League Central rivals.

Salvador Perez clubbed two homers for Kansas City, including a two-run blast that opened the scoring in the first, after hitting a two-run shot in the Royals' 6-4 victory in Game 1. However, Grossman and Kepler answered in the bottom of the first. Both home runs came off Royals starter Ian Kennedy, who lasted just two innings and allowed five runs on three hits in his return from the disabled list.

On a cool mid-May evening, Minnesota United squared off against the visiting LA Galaxy at TCF Bank Stadium yesterday. Despite winning the possession battle 65.5% to 34.5% MNUFC was ultimately undone by a late own goal, giving LA a 2-1 victory.

MNUFC established an advantage in possession early on that would persist throughout the game. They would probe LA’s defense, pull back, rotate the ball through the defenders and deeper midfield, then try again. In the 16th minute, it produced a terrific opportunity as a long outlet from Ibson found Jerome Thiesson down the right. Thiesson volleyed a cross in, but Christian Ramirez was a step slow and couldn’t push his way through the defense to get close to the ball.
