The Vikings are extending the contract of head coach Mike Zimmer. The Vikings announced the extension as they opened training camp at Minnesota State University, but did not disclose the length of the deal.

Brian Dozier drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning as the Twins went on to beat the Orioles 6-2 at Target Field. The teams were making up a May 9th rainout. Max Kepler homered in the sixth to tie the game and added some insurance with an RBI-single in the seventh for the Twins, who snapped a three-game skid.
The Twins open up a three-game series with the Chicago White Sox tonight at Target Field. Ricky Nolasco will take the mound for Minnesota. He is 4-and-8 with a 5.40 ERA. The Sox will counter with left-hander Jose Quintana, who is 8-and-8 with a 2.97 ERA.
The Wild are brining back restricted free agent defenseman Matt Dumba. The team signed Dumba to a two-year, 5.1-million-dollar contract yesterday.
