     ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Shohei Ohtani struck out 11 while pitching three-hit ball into the seventh inning, and Zack Cozart got a walk-off RBI single in the Los Angeles Angels' 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.
 
     Chris Young was hit by a pitch from Zach Duke (2-2) leading off the ninth. After Martin Maldonado bunted Young to second, Cozart cracked his second game-ending hit of the season into left field, where Eddie Rosario couldn't field it cleanly for a throw to the plate.
 
     Although neither got a decision, two promising rookie pitchers put on a tantalizing duel at the Big A.
 
     Ohtani was dominant again in his sixth big-league start, but the Angels' two-way sensation was denied his fourth win when he left after walking Logan Morrison on nine pitches in the seventh. Reliever Cam Bedrosian promptly allowed two hits, including pinch-hitter Joe Mauer's tying RBI single.
 
     Fernando Romero pitched five innings of four-hit ball in his third big-league start for the Twins. The Dominican right-hander allowed his first career run in the fifth inning, but otherwise excelled against the Angels' veteran lineup.
 
     Minnesota then put four straight batters on base in the ninth inning, yet the Angels kept it tied.
 
     After Ehire Adrianza was thrown out at the plate by Ian Kinsler while attempting to score from first on Robbie Grossman's double, Blake Parker (1-1) got Brian Dozier to pop out with the bases loaded.
 
     When Young and Cozart swiftly ended it, Parker got the win for throwing just one pitch.
 
     Maldonado had two hits and a walk for the Angels, scoring the game's first run on Justin Upton's groundout in the fifth inning.
 
     Romero's career-opening scoreless streak ended at 15 2/3 innings when Upton beat out a potential double-play grounder in the fifth, but he struck out six while walking three.
 
     Ohtani was making his first daytime home start since he took a perfect game into the seventh inning of a brilliant one-hit, 12-strikeout performance against Oakland on April 8. He was in top form on the mound yet again while throwing a career-high 103 pitches.
 
     The Twins managed two short singles early on, but Ohtani also struck out five straight and nine of 12 batters during the first four innings, with his 99-mph fastball alternating with vicious breaking pitches.
 
     Morrison got two hits and that key walk against Ohtani while the rest of Minnesota's lineup struggled mightily against the Japanese star.
 
     After Ohtani left to a standing ovation, Bedrosian blew the lead in two batters.

     BOSTON (AP) - Jaylen Brown had 23 points and eight rebounds, Marcus Morris added 21 points and 10 boards, and the Boston Celtics opened a 21-point, first-quarter lead and beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-83 on Sunday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.
 
     Al Horford scored 20 points for the Celtics, who ran off 17 consecutive points in the first quarter to pull away.
 
     Game 2 is Tuesday night.
 
     Kevin Love had 17 points and eight rebounds, and LeBron James finished with 15 points, nine assists and seven boards. The Cavaliers missed their first 14 3-point attempts of the game and shot just 32 percent in the first half.
 
     By that time, Boston led 61-35 - the biggest halftime playoff deficit in James' career.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The Washington Capitals scored in the opening minute of the game and twice in the last 1:02 of the second period to pull away to a 6-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday night and a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference final.
 
     Evgeny Kuznetsov and Lars Eller each had a goal and two assists. Alex Ovechkin and Tom Wilson had a goal and an assist apiece.
 
     Devante Smith-Pelly and Brett Connolly also scored for the Caps, who took the first two games of the best-of-seven matchup on the road. Since 1974-75, teams that take a 2-0 lead in the conference final or semifinal have a series record of 39-2 (95.1 percent).
 
     Game 3 is Tuesday night in Washington.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Sean Newcomb allowed no runs for the third start in a row and gave up only one hit in six innings to help the Atlanta Braves beat the Miami Marlins 4-3 Sunday. Newcomb, who is 4-1, has pitched 20 consecutive scoreless innings and last allowed a run on April 26.
 
     Brian Anderson's double in the second inning was the lone hit off the left-hander, who has given up five hits total in his past three starts. Newcomb walked four, struck out six and lowered his ERA to 2.51. Atlanta closer Arodys Vizcaino came on after the first two batters singled in the ninth. He gave up a three-run pinch-hit homer to Justin Bour with one out, then retired the next two batters for his seventh save in eight chances, completing a four-hitter.
 
     Jose Urena allowed three runs in six innings. The Marlins' opening day starter remained winless in nine outings after going 14-7 last year.
 
     Elsewhere in the majors:
 
     - Mark Reynolds homered twice in his first game with Washington, lifting the Nationals over the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-4 to complete a four-game sweep. Reynolds had his contract selected from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday. He homered off Zack Godley in the sixth inning, then broke a 4-4 tie with a two-run shot off Archie Bradley in the eighth after the Diamondbacks rallied with a three-run seventh.
 
     - Shohei Ohtani struck out 11 while pitching three-hit ball into the seventh inning, and Zack Cozart got a walk-off RBI single in the Los Angeles Angels' 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins. Ohtani had another impressive outing in his sixth big-league start, but the Angels' two-way sensation was denied his fourth victory when he left after walking Logan Morrison on nine pitches in the seventh.
 
     - Eugenio Suarez and Joey Votto homered, and the last-place Cincinnati Reds beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 for their first four-game sweep of the Dodgers since the Big Red Machine accomplished the feat in August 1976. The defending NL champion Dodgers finished a 1-5 homestand and have lost seven of eight.
 
     - Giancarlo Stanton went 4 for 4 with a home run and three RBIs, sending Luis Severino and the New York Yankees to a 6-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics after a long rain delay. Severino struck out seven in six innings as New York won for the 19th time in 22 games to remain tied with rival Boston for the best record in the majors at 28-12.
 
     - J.D. Martinez homered and had three RBIs, Mookie Betts had two hits and made a sensational diving catch, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3. Martinez's 10th homer this season was a two-run shot in the first inning off right-hander Joe Biagini.
 
     - Corey Kluber became the American League's first six-game winner as the Cleveland Indians beat the Kansas City Royals 11-2. The reigning Cy Young Award winner gave up two unearned runs in seven innings, scattering eight hits. Kluber (6-2) was backed by four hits from Yan Gomes, including a three-run homer.
 
     - Jose Iglesias hit an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Detroit Tigers a 5-4 victory over Seattle. Niko Goodrum homered and had three hits for the Tigers. His single in the ninth allowed JaCoby Jones to advance to third with nobody out, and Iglesias followed with a single up the middle off Juan Nicasio.
 
     - Matt Davidson hit a solo homer and a tiebreaking sacrifice fly, helping the Chicago White Sox salvage the finale of their weekend series against the crosstown Cubs with a 5-3 win. The White Sox stopped a seven-game slide and became the last major league team to reach 10 wins.
 
     - Joey Rickard had his first big league multihomer game and drove in four runs following his recall from the minor leagues, and the Baltimore Orioles scored their most runs in three years in a 17-1 rout over the Tampa Bay Rays. Baltimore won consecutive series for the first time this season..
 
     - Dallas Keuchel allowed three hits in seven shutout innings, Evan Gattis and Carlos Correa homered for the second straight game and the Houston Astros defeated the Texas Rangers 6-1. Keuchel struck out eight and walked one, lowering his ERA from 3.53 to 3.10. Houston's starters have the top three ERAs in the American League led by Justin Verlander at a major league-best 1.21.
 
     - Gorkys Hernandez homered off Ivan Nova to spark a five-run sixth inning, Nick Hundley added a three-run drive and the San Francisco Giants beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-0 to stop a season-high six game-losing streak.
 
     - New York's Jacob deGrom lasted just one inning in his return from the disabled list, and pinch-hitter Nick Williams had a go-ahead, three-run homer off Paul Seward in the sixth inning that carried the Philadelphia Phillies over the Mets 4-2. DeGrom needed 45 pitches to get through a scoreless and hitless first, which included 20 foul balls. New York said he was removed as a precaution.
 
     - Clayton Richard matched his career high with 10 strikeouts in eight strong innings for his first win in more than a month, and the San Diego Padres beat struggling Adam Wainwright and the St. Louis Cardinals 5-3 to salvage a split of their four-game series.
 
     - Freddy Peralta took a no-hit bid into the sixth inning of his major league debut and set a Milwaukee rookie record with 13 strikeouts, leading the Brewers over the Colorado Rockies 7-3. A 21-year-old right-hander who was 5-1 this season at Triple-A Colorado Springs, Peralta didn't allow a hit until David Dahl hit a sharp single to center with one out in the sixth. Winner Jon Gray gave up six runs and 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings. Travis Shaw and Jesus Aguilar homered for the Brewers.
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

     PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Webb Simpson navigated his way through a few mistakes but not too much stress to win The Players Championship on Sunday.
 
     Staked to a seven-shot lead, no one got closer than four shots of Simpson, even after a double bogey on the 18th hole when his only concern was finishing the hole. He closed with a 1-over 73 for a four-shot victory and his biggest win since the 2012 U.S. Open at Olympic Club.
 
     Tiger Woods made another big run. So did Jason Dufner, Jimmy Walker and Danny Lee. None could do enough to catch Simpson during record scoring in the final Players Championship in May.
 
     Justin Thomas shot a 66 and tied for 11th, which was more than enough to move to No. 1 in the world.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Robinson Cano left Seattle's game at Detroit in the third inning Sunday with a broken right hand after being hit by a pitch.
 
     Cano was struck by a pitch from left-hander Blaine Hardy, then went to the dugout while being replaced by a pinch runner. The 35-year-old Cano is hitting .287 with four home runs and 23 RBIs this season. He hit a three-run homer in Seattle's win Saturday night.
 
     In other MLB news:
 
     - Right-hander Chase Anderson was put on the 10-day disabled list because of illness by the Milwaukee Brewers, who recalled right-hander Freddy Peralta from Triple-A Colorado Springs and slated him to make his big league debut against Colorado. Anderson was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday due to a stomach illness..

    SEATTLE (AP) - Chuck Knox, the veteran NFL coach who led the Seattle Seahawks for nine years and took the Los Angeles Rams to three straight NFC championship games, has died. He was 86. Knox died Saturday evening, the Seahawks confirmed Sunday.
 
     Knox went 186-147-1 during 22 seasons as an NFL head coach, including two stints with the Rams. He won five straight NFC West titles from 1973-77, and he returned in 1992 for the franchise's final three seasons in Los Angeles before its move to St. Louis.
 
     The Pennsylvania native left the Rams in 1978 for the Buffalo Bills. After five seasons, he took over the Seahawks in 1983 and immediately led the franchise to its first playoff berth and the AFC title game.
