Jays unable to complete sweep of Twins

MINNEAPOLIS—Fernando Romero's major-league debut for Minnesota carried the extra weight of a Twins' team that won only once in its previous 12 games.

No pressure, kid.

Well, he sure didn't appear to feel any.

Romero kept Toronto scoreless while pitching into the sixth inning, giving the Twins a badly-needed boost in a 4-0 victory over the Blue Jays yesterday afternoon.

Vikings deep into playoff run thanks, in part, to diligent Diggs

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.—The path for Stefon Diggs to last-play touchdown fame and sudden Minnesota saviour didn't start with such brilliance.

Diggs only has arrived at this stage of his life and his career, a Vikings' standout on the verge of a Super Bowl, with an unrelenting diligence and a dose of humility.

Vikings' fans hope to settle score

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.—For fans of the Minnesota Vikings, at least the ones old enough to drive, there's a score to be settled with the New Orleans Saints.

Eight years ago, the last Minnesota team considered a strong Super Bowl contender was on the verge of victory in New Orleans in the NFC championship game despite four earlier turnovers inside the raucous Superdome.

Vikings chasing first-round bye

MINNEAPOLIS—The Minnesota Vikings have won a whole bunch of games since their previous matchup with Chicago—a steady march to become NFC North champions that has put plenty of distance between the playoffs they're about to enter and that ugly first half they played against the Bears.

That's precisely where their path to the post-season began to straighten out.
