NEW YORK — Short on glam, slim on glitter and no sign of Manti Te’o, the NFL draft was still a solid B-plus. As in Big, as in Brawn, as in Bulk, as in Beefy. We’re talking a scale-busting 600 pounds at the outset Thursday night with offensive tackles Eric Fisher of Central Michigan and Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — It took awhile for the Minnesota Twins’ offense to get going on Thursday night. Once it did, it didn’t take long for it to sputter and stop again. Nick Tepesch pitched six strong innings for his second win, and Elvis Andrus and Nelson Cruz each drove in runs to lead the Texas Rangers to a 2-1 win over the Twins. It was the Twins’ first one-run loss of the season and their fourth straight loss to Texas at Target Field.
