     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Max Kepler hit his second home run of the game, connecting for a solo drive with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Minnesota Twins bounced back from a late collapse to beat the Houston Astros 9-8 this afternoon.
 
     After the Twins blew an 8-1 lead, Kepler homered with two strikes off Brad Peacock (1-1). Kepler hit a two-run homer to cap an eight-run fourth, an inning that included Eddie Rosario's bases-loaded triple.
 
     A throwing error by second baseman Brian Dozier helped Houston tie it in the ninth. Down 8-6, the Astros loaded the bases with one out against Fernando Rodney. George Springer grounded into an RBI forceout, and the tying run scored when Dozier threw wide to first trying for a double play.
 
     A series that had been marked by cold weather, walks and strikeouts finally saw a bit of offense after both starters faltered in the middle innings.
 
     The first-pitch temperature was 44 degrees after starting in the 30s at night the previous two days. The teams combined for 32 walks and 60 strikeouts in the three-game series.
 
     Lance McCullers Jr. (1-2) allowed a career-high eight runs in 3 2/3 innings for the Astros. He gave up seven hits, tied a career high with six walks and struck out six.
 
     Minnesota starter Kyle Gibson couldn't take advantage of the big inning by the Twins' offense. The following half inning, the Astros scored four times and chased him.
 
     After giving up one earned run in his first 10 1/3 innings this season, Gibson surrendered five runs as he walked four batters and gave up seven hits.
 
     Houston's Alex Bregman had a career-high four hits, including his first homer of the season.

     UNDATED (AP) - It's the last day of the NBA season, with just one spot in the playoffs still up for grabs.
 
     That will be decided when the Minnesota Timberwolves host the Denver Nuggets. The winner heads to the playoffs and the loser to the offseason. It's the first time since 1997 - and only the third time since the NBA went to this postseason format in 1983 - that two teams will play on the season's final day in such a situation.
 
     Minnesota is trying to get into the playoffs for the first time since 2004 - the longest current drought in the NBA. Denver - winner of six straight to give itself this chance - is trying to get to the postseason for the first time since 2013.
 
     There are nine teams that know today is the last day of their season. And 15 teams already have clinched playoff berths.
 
     The eight first-round matchups remain to be set. The only order of business that was cleared up Tuesday was the No. 2 overall seed, with Toronto now assured of finishing with the NBA's second-best record.

     UNDATED (AP) - The first round of the Stanley Cup playoff begins today. In the Eastern conference, the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins host Philadelphia. In the West, Minnesota visits Winnipeg and Las Vegas hosts Los Angeles.

     DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - NASCAR has suspended Hendrick Motorsports crew chief Alan Gustafson for two races after Chase Elliott's car was found to have an illegal rear window during the Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway last weekend. Elliott was docked 20 points, and Gustafson was fined $50,000. The 20-point penalty drops Elliott from 15th to 18th in the Cup standings.
 
     Hendrick Motorsports says in a statement it won't appeal the penalty. Kenny Francis, a former crew chief for Kasey Kahne, will serve as Elliott's crew chief for the next two races, in Bristol and Richmond.
 
     Hendrick Motorsports attributed the violation to an "unintentional support bracket failure" on the No. 9 Chevrolet. Elliott finished 11th  on Sunday.
 
     It's the second penalty for Elliott's team this year. He was docked 25 points and saw his car chief suspended for two races following a suspension violation last month.

     LOS ANGELES (AP) - The wait is over. Baseball's All-Star Game is returning to Dodger Stadium in 2020 for the first time since 1980, thanks in large part to the upgrades made by the team's ownership in recent years.
 
     Commissioner Rob Manfred made the announcement from a platform in center field today with Dodgers alumni Don Newcombe, Tom Lasorda, Manny Mota, Ron Cey, Bill Russell and Reggie Smith looking on. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, injured third baseman Justin Turner and closer Kenley Jansen joined them under a hot sun.
 
     Manfred cited three factors in awarding the 2020 edition to Los Angeles: the city offers a "great place" to showcase the game's younger talent, Dodger Stadium is iconic as baseball's third-oldest park, and "it's time for us to be back here."

     CLEVELAND (AP) - Veteran forward Kendrick Perkins is back with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Cleveland signed Perkins today, the final day of the regular season, and will have him on its playoff roster as it tries to make the NBA Finals for the fourth straight year. The 33-year-old Perkins was with the Cavs during their 2015 run to the Finals.
 
     The 6-foot-10 Perkins also was with Cleveland during training camp this season, and spent time with its Canton G-League affiliate. Perkins hasn't played in the NBA since 2016 with New Orleans.
 
     Perkins gives Cleveland some frontcourt depth in case of an injury and another player with postseason experience who can provide leadership.
 
     A 13-year veteran, Perkins has also played for Boston and Oklahoma City. He won a title with the Celtics in 2008.
 
     The late-season roster addition is not new for the Cavs, who signed guard Dahntay Jones the past two years and center Edy Tavares in 2017.
 
     In other NBA news:
 
     - The Milwaukee Bucks are getting All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and guard Matthew Dellavedova back from right ankle injuries for the regular-season finale at Philadelphia on Wednesday night. Antetokounmpo has missed the last two games. Dellavedova's injury was more serious, sidelining him since Feb. 4. Malcolm Brogdon returned on Monday from a 30-game absence for a quad injury, meaning that the Bucks are back at full strength with the postseason beginning this weekend.
 
     - The G League MVP is now eligible for the NBA playoffs. The Toronto Raptors converted guard Lorenzo Brown's contract to a standard NBA deal on Wednesday, meaning he'll be available to them in the postseason that starts this weekend. Brown had been on a two-way deal, and he is with the Raptors for their regular-season finale at Miami. He averaged 18.8 points and 8.9 assists for Raptors 905 this season on his way to winning the G League MVP. Brown had a season-high 11 points against Detroit on Monday.

     VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) - Jalen Brunson, The Associated Press men's college basketball player of the year, has declared for the NBA draft after winning two national titles at Villanova. The star guard will forego his final season after helping lead the Wildcats to their second national championship in three years. Brunson averaged 18.9 points and 4.6 assists per game in 40 games for the Wildcats this season.

    Mikal Bridges, who averaged 17.7 points and 5.3 rebounds for the Wildcats, made the same decision on Monday.
