DENVER — People in parts of Colorado and Wyoming pulled puffy jackets, hats and umbrellas out of the closet again Wednesday for another round of wet spring snow. The May Day snow storm was making travel difficult on Interstate 70 in Colorado’s mountains and along Interstate 80 in southeastern Wyoming, but the snow wasn’t having a major impact on Denver’s airport, though there have been de-icing delays. Nearly 3 feet of snow is possible in the foothills and mountains of northern Colorado while around a foot is expected at lower elevations in parts of both states.
EDEN PRAIRIE — The Minnesota Vikings were widely expected to make a middle linebacker one of their high draft picks to address perhaps the largest void on an otherwise-promising roster. Their expected starter at this critical position, though, was on the team all along. Erin Henderson, who played the weak side spot last season, has been given the first opportunity to take over. The 26-year-old said Wednesday he was told by the coaches a few months ago to prepare accordingly.
DETROIT — Aaron Hicks hit a line drive to the right-field corner and immediately took off around the bases, reaching third to lead off the seventh inning. That’s what the Twins were envisioning when they put the rookie in the lineup this year, and after a rough first month in the major leagues, Hicks began May in encouraging fashion. Hicks’ triple started a two-run rally in the seventh, and the Twins went on to beat Detroit 6-2 on Wednesday, snapping the Tigers’ five-game winning streak. Minnesota led 3-2 when Hicks tripled and scored.
