BUFFALO, N. Adam Thielen Jersey .Y. -- Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula have a strong desire to see the Bills stay in Buffalo, and arent ruling out making a bid to buy the NFL franchise. In saying theyre following the Bills sale process, the Pegulas declined to go into further detail of their intentions, in a prepared statement released by Sabres vice-president Michael Gilbert on Friday. "Like everyone else in this community, they have a strong desire to have the Buffalo Bills remain a centerpiece of this region," Gilbert said. "Accordingly, they have been following the developments involving the sale of the Bills." Out of respect for the sale process, Gilbert said the owners will not be issuing any further comments. The statement was released in response to numerous reports of the Pegulas having serious interest in purchasing the Bills, who are on the market after the teams owner and founder Ralph Wilson died in March. The latest development came on Thursday, when a person familiar with the sale process told The Associated Press the Pegulas were among prospective buyers who received a non-disclosure agreement and background on the Bills from a law firm representing Wilsons estate. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the sale process has not been made public. Filling out the non-disclosure agreement would be the next step in providing interested groups full access to the Bills financial data in order to begin formulating bids. The Bills were last valued by Forbes to be worth $870 million. But their sale price could go much higher because NFL teams rarely go on the market. The Pegulas made their fortune in the natural gas industry, after Terry Pegula sold off many of his companys assets for $4.7 billion to Royal Dutch Shell in 2010. His net worth was last estimated by Forbes to be $3.3 billion, but that figure could rise after his company reached a deal to sell off 75,000 acres of land in Ohio and West Virginia to Oklahoma-based American Energy Partners last week. Pegula has spent the past four years going on a major spending spree focusing on two of his passions: hockey and Penn State, his alma mater. In 2010, he donated more than $100 million to Penn State to build a hockey arena and establish a Division I program. In February 2011, he purchased the Sabres, the team he became a fan of in the 1970s. The Pegulas have since shown a commitment to helping spur Buffalos economy by building a $172 million hockey/entertainment complex called HarborCenter across from the Sabres downtown arena. The Bills long-term future in western New York remains a question mark. Though their lease essentially ties them to playing at their current home through the 2019 season, there are concerns the Bills could eventually relocate under a new owner. Toronto and Los Angeles are considered potential landing spots. People familiar with the sale have previously said an ownership candidate could be identified by the end of July, and the sale approved by NFL owners as early as the leagues meetings in October.

MINNEAPOLIS -- There will be plenty of drama for the Oakland Athletics as they head down the home stretch in the pennant race. Probably not the kind of drama that unfolded Wednesday night against the Minnesota Twins, though. Jed Lowries foul ball that turned into a two-run double after umpires changed the call highlighted a 10-run fourth inning as Oakland pounded Minnesota 18-3. Every Oakland starter had at least one hit, one run and one RBI as the As recorded a season-high 22 hits and extended their lead over Texas in the AL West to three games. Lowrie, Coco Crisp and Stephen Vogt also homered. Yoenis Cespedes had three RBIs to help the As score their most runs in a game since beating Boston 20-2 on Aug. 31, 2012. "Once we got rolling there, we never stopped," Josh Donaldson said. Lowries foul ball turned two-run double helped keep the As rolling in the fourth. With runners on second and third and three runs already in, Lowrie lined a ball down the line that first-base umpire Bill Miller ruled foul as he danced out of the way. Lowrie pointed at the ground inside the white line where he thought the ball hit. Oakland manager Bob Melvin came out to argue, and Lowrie was eventually awarded a two-run double after the entire umpire crew huddled and changed the call. "Bottom line is thats an impossible call for Bill," Lowrie said. "His natural reaction is to get out of the way. They told me they just want to get the calls right, and they did." Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was ejected by Miller after a long argument, the fifth time hes been tossed this season and the 67th ejection of his career. Fans at Target Field sarcastically cheered Miller when he gave the foul signal after Brandon Moss, the next batter, lined a foul ball down the first-base line. Gardenhire didnt want to talk about the call after the game. "Were not going to talk about anything else. Im not going to talk about all that crap," he said. "Cant do anything about it now." Sonny Gray (3-3), who had received fewer than four runs of support over his last six starts, struck out seven in five innings for the win. The right-hander had to sit in the dugout for 35 minutes during the marathon fourth inning, but welcomed the extra run support. "I wish we could score as many runs as possible every day," Gray said. "Its a confidence boostt for our whole team. Paul Krause Jersey. ." Grey almost had a couple more runs. In the fifth, Josh Reddick of the As drove a ball off the top of the wall in the right-field corner that Miller ruled a home run. The call was overturned after a replay review -- the first at Target Field this season -- and Reddick had to trot back out of the dugout to second base. Mike Pelfrey (5-12) was removed with no outs in the fourth, before all the theatrics that followed Lowries hit. He allowed seven runs and eight hits and has won just once since July 11. "This is probably the worst outing Ive had in a long time," Pelfrey said. "I fell behind guys and threw balls over the middle, and thats whats going to happen." Relievers Josh Roenicke and Ryan Pressly combined to allow six runs and six hits before the fourth inning was finally finished. Eric Fryer, called up from Triple-A Rochester on Monday, hit his first career home run in the sixth to give the few fans remaining at Target Field something to cheer about. The Twins allowed season highs in runs and hits. "Ive been a part of some games that have been lopsided," As manager Bob Melvin said. "But never a game where all the starters had one hit, one RBI and one run scored." As it tries to hold off the Rangers down the stretch, Oakland will play the Twins five more times. The As will only see the Rangers for one more three-game series -- this weekend in Texas. NOTES: Twins GM Terry Ryan said C Joe Mauer "didnt have a good day" so the team sent him home early. Mauer, out since Aug. 20, had been making progress in returning from a concussion. ... Reddick was not in the starting lineup for the second straight day after being activated from the 15-day DL with a right wrist injury. He entered the game in the bottom of the fourth. ... Baseball America selected 19-year-old Twins CF Byron Buxton as its minor league player of the year on Wednesday. "Couldnt be more proud of the kid. Heck, thats quite the year hes had," Ryan said. ... Buxton hit .334 with 49 extra base hits and 55 stolen bases during stints at Single-A Fort Myers and Low-A Cedar Rapids this season. ... Scott Diamond (5-10, 5.52 ERA) will make his first start for the Twins since being recalled from Triple-A Rochester in Thursdays series finale. A.J. Griffin (13-9, 3.91) will start for Oakland.
