     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Lance Lynn bounced back from two poor starts, Max Kepler homered and the Minnesota Twins beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-2 Friday night.
 
     Joe Mauer, Eddie Rosario, Jorge Polanco and Mitch Garver each had two hits for the Twins, who have won two straight after a six-game skid.
 
     Caleb Joseph had a season-high three hits for the Orioles, losers of four straight and 11 of 12.
 
     Lynn (6-7) allowed six hits and one earned run in six innings as he continued his up-and-down season. He allowed 11 earned runs in 6 2/3 innings over his previous two starts, including seven in 1 2/3 innings last Sunday at Wrigley Field. His ERA was 1.74 ERA in six starts from May 22 to June 20, but 7.47 in his first eight starts of the season.
 
     Up 6-0, Lynn needed 27 pitches to get through the sixth when Baltimore scored its first run, but a double play and ground out ended the threat.
 
     In his first start since going on the disabled list June 23 with a left ankle sprain, Baltimore's Dylan Bundy (6-8) allowed nine hits and five earned runs in 3 1/3 innings. It is his second-shortest start of the season. The right-hander allowed seven runs without recording an out May 8 vs. Kansas City.
 
     Brian Dozier and Polanco had RBI singles in the first inning as Minnesota jumped out to a 3-0 lead, increasing Bundy's opening frame ERA to 9.00. It is 3.13 in innings two through nine.
 
     Kepler made it 5-0 in the fourth with a two-run homer to right field and Mauer singled in a run three batters later to end Bundy's night.
 
     For the second straight game, Jake Cave robbed an Orioles player of an extra-base hit. Tim Beckham hit the first pitch of the game to the deepest part of Target Field, but Cave, in center field, raced to the wall, leapt, reached back and caught the ball while fully extended to deny a home run.
 
     Cave made a fully extended catch at the wall in right-center Thursday to take a hit from Chris Davis.
 
      UP NEXT
 
     A pair of right-handers are scheduled to start today with Baltimore's Kevin Gausman (4-6, 4.05) facing Minnesota's Kyle Gibson (2-6, 3.58). Gausman has allowed two or fewer runs in four straight starts. Gibson has allowed more than three earned runs just once in his last nine turns.

     UNDATED (AP) - Free-agent forward Tyler Ennis has signed a one-year, $650,000 deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs a week after having the final year of his contract bought out by the Minnesota Wild. Ennis signed on Friday and returns to the Atlantic Division, where he spent his first eight seasons playing for Buffalo.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - The Boston Red Sox have widened their lead in the AL East by blasting the Royals in Kansas City.
 
     Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez and Xander Bogaerts homered while the Red Sox were building an 8-0 lead by the second inning of a 10-5 trouncing of the Royals. Steve Pearce had three hits and an RBI for the Bosox, who are a major league-leading 31 games over .500.
 
     Chris Sale was superb over six innings, striking out 12 and holding Kansas City to a run and five hits.
 
     The rout puts the Red Sox two games ahead of the Yankees.
 
     The Yanks dropped the opener of their three-game set in Toronto as Justin Smoak launched a three-run homer off Sonny Gray while the Blue Jays scored five times in the second inning of a 6-2 win over New York. Former Yankee Yangervis Solarte went 3-for-4 with a walk and a run scored to help the Jays beat the Yankees for the first time in their last five meetings.
 
     Aaron Hicks homered for the Yankees, who will drop another game in the standings if the Red Sox beat the Royals in Kansas City.
 
     Checking out Friday's other major league action:
 
     - Lance McCullers carried a no-hitter into the sixth and struck out a career-high 12 over seven innings of the Astros' 11-4 romp over the White Sox. Evan Gattis had three hits and four RBIs, including a three-run blast in Houston's seven-run eighth. Tim Federowicz hit a two-run double and Jose Altuve was 3-for-4 with two runs scored as the AL West leaders moved 2 1/2 games ahead of the Mariners.
 
     - Seattle was saddled with a 7-1 loss to the Rockies as Tony Wolters drove in three runs with a pair of triples. Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-5 with a solo shot and two runs scored in support of German Marquez, who was reached for just one run over six innings. Denard Spans' sixth-inning blast ended Marquez's shutout bid.
 
     - Jose Ramirez and Edwin Encarnacion drove in three runs apiece and scored twice as the Indians ripped the Athletics, 10-4. Carlos Carrasco worked 5 1/3 innings and withstood homers by Dustin Fowler and Matt Olson to improve to 9-5. The Indians have won five in a row and continue to lead the AL Central by 12 games over Detroit.
 
     - Jesus Aguilar smacked his 20th home run and the Brewers earned their fifth straight win by holding off the Braves, 5-4. Tyler Saladino slammed a two-run shot while Milwaukee was taking a 5-1 lead. Rookie Freddy Peralta allowed just one run over six innings to help the Brewers forge a 2 1/2-game lead over the second-place Cubs in the NL Central.
 
     - The Braves fell into a first-place tie with Philadelphia in the NL East after Odubel Herrera and Andrew Knapp crushed three-run homers in the Phillies' 17-6 assault on the Pirates. Herrera drove in four runs and Carlos Santana had three RBIs in the Phils' fifth straight win. The Phillies are 11 games over .500 for the first time since the end of 2011.
 
     - The Reds beat the Cubs for the fifth straight time as Tyler Mahle (MAH'-lee) held Chicago to one run and five hits over seven innings of a 3-2 victory at Wrigley Field. Adam Duvall and Scooter Gennett drove in runs while the Reds were building a 3-0 lead by the fifth inning. Cincinnati ended Chicago's six-game winning streak and won for the 14th time in 18 games.
 
     - The Diamondbacks knocked off the Padres, 3-1 as Zack Godley yielded one run and four hits over six innings for his 10th win. Steven Souza Jr. drove in two runs with a single and fielder's choice in his second game back from the disabled list. The outcome allowed Arizona to move one game ahead of the second-place Dodgers in the NL West.
 
     - Los Angeles blew a 2-1 lead in the ninth as Yasiel Puig's (YAH'-see-ul pweez) throwing error in right allowed David Fletcher to score the winning run in the bottom of the ninth, sending the Angels past the Dodgers, 3-2. Fletcher also provided the tiebreaking single that scored Shohei Ohtani before Ian Kinsler hit a single that was thrown away by Puig. Matt Kemp hit a pair of RBI singles to highlight the Dodgers' four-hit attack.
 
     - Pablo Sandoval homered and Andrew McCutchen delivered the tiebreaking RBI single in the seventh inning as the Giants beat the Cardinals, 3-2 to end a four-game skid. Kolton Wong had two hits and two RBIs for St. Louis, including a run-scoring triple that tied it 2-2 in the seventh. The Cardinals' sixth loss in nine games puts them 7 1/2 games off the NL Central lead.
 
     - Mark Reynolds belted a walk-off solo homer in the ninth inning to send the Nationals to their 13th consecutive win over the Marlins, 3-2. Adam Eaton and Wilmer Difo hit RBI singles and each provided two of Washington's eight hits. The Nats' streak against Miami is their longest against any club since the team moved from Montreal.
 
     - Jordan Zimmermann struck out 11 batters over eight innings as the Tigers beat the Rangers, 3-1. Zimmermann outdueled Bartolo Colon, who was trying to become the winningest Latin-American pitcher in major league history. Colon went the distance on a five-hitter but surrendered James McCann's two-run homer and JaCoby Jones' solo blast.
 
     - Lance Lynn gave up six hits and one earned run over six innings of the Twins' 6-2 downing of the Orioles. Max Kepler's two-run shot gave Minnesota a 5-0 lead in the fourth. Baltimore has dropped four straight and 11 of 12.
 
     - The Mets pulled out a 5-1 win over the Rays on Jose Bautista's walk-off grand slam in the ninth inning. The blast came too late to help major league ERA leader Jacob deGrom, who received another no-decision after allowing one run and four hits over eight innings. The Mets have won two straight since dropping 10 of 12, and Tampa Bay has dropped two in a row since a 9-2 stretch moved them over .500.

     UNDATED (AP) - Brazil is the latest soccer powerhouse to fail in its bid to reach the World Cup semifinals.
 
     The five-time champions absorbed a 2-1 loss to Belgium in the quarterfinals. A Fernandinho own goal and a perfectly executed finish from Kevin De Bruyne gave the Belgians a 2-0 lead by halftime. Belgium blanked the Brazilians until substitute Renato Augusto tallied in the 76th minute.
 
     Belgium will make its first semifinal appearance in 32 years when it faces France in St. Petersburg on Tuesday.
 
     The French earned a 2-0 win over Uruguay to reach the semis for the third time since winning the Cup in 1998. Raphael Varane gave France the lead with a header in the 40th minute. Antoine Griezmann capped the scoring when his shot bounced off the hands of the goalkeeper in the 61st.
 
     Saturday's quarterfinal matches will have Sweden taking on England and Croatia against Russia, the host country.

     LONDON (AP) - Play is under way on Day 6 at Wimbledon.
 
     No. 5 Juan Martin del Potro was the highest-seeded player in early action, playing Benoit Paire of France on No. 2 Court. The former U.S. Open champion is trying to make the fourth round for the fourth time at the All England Club, having reached the semifinals as his best result in 2013.
 
     Also, Gilles Simon of France was playing Matthew Ebden of Australia.
 
     Top-ranked duo Rafael Nadal and Simona Halep are back on court at Wimbledon today as they try to reach the fourth round of the grass-court Grand Slam.
 
     Nadal is playing Australian teenager Alex de Minaur on Centre Court, with Halep facing Hsieh Su-Wei of Taiwan on No. 1 Court.
 
     Nadal is looking to win Wimbledon for the third time while Halep is trying to follow up her maiden Grand Slam triumph at the French Open with a first title at the All England Club. She is one of only two top-10 seeds remaining in the women's draw.

     DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Chase Elliott turned a lap of 194.045 mph to win the pole at Daytona International Speedway. Hendrick teammate Alex Bowman joins Elliott on the front row. Bowman won the pole for this year's Daytona 500 in the debut race for the Chevy Camaro.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - The Indians say they plan to keep reliever Andrew Miller sidelined until after the All-Star break as he recovers from a right knee injury. Miller has been sidelined with inflammation since May 26, and his comeback recently stalled. However, the Indians were excited and encouraged by his progress after he threw 31 pitches off a mound on Thursday.
 
     Elsewhere in the majors:
 
     - Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein says Yu Darvish is feeling better and he is optimistic the Japanese right-hander will make a "solid contribution" this season. But Epstein stopped short of providing a schedule for the injured starter's return. Darvish went on the disabled list on May 26 with tendinitis in his right triceps.
 
     - The Braves, Diamondbacks and Dodgers have failed to sign their first-round draft picks before Friday's deadline. Each of those teams will be given an extra selection in the first round of next June's amateur draft.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Tony Parker has become a latest member of the San Antonio Spurs' championship run to leave the team. Parker has agreed to a two-year, $10 million contract with the Charlotte Hornets, ending a 17-year run with the Spurs. He averaged career-lows of 7.7 points and 19.5 minutes last season, when he lost his starting job. Parker was part of the Spurs' Big Three with Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili.
 
     Elsewhere in the NBA:
 
     - The Thunder and forward Carmelo Anthony have mutually decided to part ways after just one season. Anthony is due to make $28 million next season after averaging 16.2 points on 40 percent shooting for the Thunder, both career lows. It is unclear whether the Thunder will buy out his contract, waive him or trade the 15-year veteran.
 
     - DeAndre Jordan has signed a one-year package with the Mavericks. The deal is expected to be worth around the $24.1 million Jordan was set to get before opting out of his contract with the Clippers.
 
     - A person with direct knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press that Zach LaVine has signed a four-year, $80 million offer sheet with the Kings. The Bulls have 48 hours to decide whether to match the offer on the restricted free agent.
 
     - The Nets will buy out Dwight Howard's contract, allowing the center to sign with the Wizards. ESPN reported that Howard will actually be signing a two-year deal in Washington, with the second year at his option.
 
     - A person familiar with the terms tells The Associated Press that Kyle O'Quinn has agreed to a one-year, $4.5 million contract with the Pacers. O'Quinn was with the Knicks last season.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      UNDATED (AP) - The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed forward Anthony Duclair to a one-year, $650,000 contract. The 22-year-old Duclair has been a hockey enigma thus far, traded twice and becoming an unrestricted free agent last week when the Blackhawks declined to make him a qualifying offer. He scored 20 goals and 44 points for the Coyotes in 2015-16, but he has delivered just 38 points in 114 games over the last two seasons.
 
     Also in the NHL:
 
     - Free-agent forward Tyler Ennis has signed a one-year, $650,000 deal with the Maple Leafs a week after having the final year of his contract bought out by the Wild. He had eight goals and 22 points in 73 games last season.
 
     - The Avalanche have agreed on a two-year deal with forward Matt Nieto, who scored a career-high 15 goals for Colorado last season. Nieto contributed three assists during the Avs' first-round loss to Nashville in April.
 
     - The Panthers have worked out a one-year deal with defenseman Alexander Petrovic. The 26-year-old played a career-high 67 games last season for Florida, averaging about 15 minutes a night and putting up 13 points.
