     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Nelson Cruz homered and drove in five runs to help the Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 11-9 on Friday night. Max Kepler, Jorge Polanco and Eddie Rosario each had two hits for the Twins, who used a five-run seventh inning to maintain a three-game lead over Cleveland in the AL Central.
     Cruz broke a 6-6 tie with a two-run double off the scoreboard in right-center field. The ball hit about 5 feet lower than his RBI double in the fifth, which was a couple feet from clearing the wall. Miguel Sano, Luis Arraez and Jason Castro added RBIs in the inning for an 11-6 lead.
     Trevor May (4-3) needed one pitch to get the final out of the seventh inning before newly acquired Sam Dyson struggled for the second straight game. Dyson allowed three runs in the eighth before Sergio Romo got the final four outs for his first save with Minnesota. Acquired last Saturday, Romo had 17 saves in 18 attempts for the Marlins.
     After four straight outs, Richard Lovelady (0-1) allowed Kepler and Polanco to get on base to open the seventh.
     Cruz, Minnesota's designated hitter who had just two pinch-hit plate appearances in Miami the last three days, crushed a pitch into the second deck in left-field for a 2-1 lead in the first.
     In his last eight starts, Cruz has eight home runs among his 15 hits and 18 RBI.
     Hunter Dozier had his first career multi-homer game and Cam Gallagher hit a solo shot for Kansas City, losers of four straight and seven of eight.
     Down 4-1, Dozier homered leading off a two-run fourth for the Royals. His solo shot in the fifth inning made it 5-4 Royals and came three batters after Gallagher homered to start the frame.
     Minnesota starter Martin Perez allowed seven hits and five earned runs in five innings. A balk also allowed a runner to score.
     Glenn Sparkman allowed six earned runs on six hits in 4 2-3 innings for the Royals. In his last three starts, the right-hander has allowed 18 earned runs in 15 1-3 innings after his first career shutout July 16 against the White Sox. In seven road starts (0-4), Sparkman has a 9.08 ERA. His ERA is 3.00 in six home starts (3-3).
     Twins: CF Byron Buxton was scratched about 90 minutes before the game with left shoulder soreness. Listed as day-to-day, Buxton crashed into the wall in Thursday's loss in Miami. . On the injured list since July 21 with right thumb inflammation, 1B C.J. Cron finished a two-game rehab assignment Friday morning in a Gulf Coast League game. Manager Rocco Baldelli expects him to be playing in a Twins game "pretty soon."
     UP NEXT
     Minnesota RHP Kyle Gibson (10-4, 4.10), who was 2-0 with a 3.77 ERA in six July starts, is scheduled to face Kansas City LHP Danny Duffy (5-5, 4.42) today. Duffy is 2-0 with a 3.50 ERA in his past three starts, going six innings in each turn.


     UNDATED (AP) - The Chicago Cubs have moved a little closer to the NL Central lead by opening their current homestand with a win over Milwaukee. Javier Baez homered and doubled twice while collecting three RBIs and scoring twice as the Cubs dumped the Brewers, 6-2. Jose Quintana helped the Cubs improve to 37-18 at Wrigley Field this season by limiting the Brewers to two runs while scattering seven hits over six-plus innings.

     Jason Heyward also homered for the Cubs, who are within a half-game of the division-leading St. Louis Cardinals after bouncing back from a 3-6 road trip that ended with an 8-0 loss at Busch Stadium.

     The Brewers are 2 1/2 games behind the Cardinals, who were off on Friday.

     Elsewhere on major league diamonds:

     - Joey Votto slammed a two-run homer in the first inning and had three RBIs as the Reds downed the Braves, 5-2. Alex Wood pitched 6 2/3 innings in his second start since returning from a season-long back injury, allowing five baserunners and solo homers by Austin Riley and Ronald Acuna Jr. Atlanta starter Kevin Gausman struggled in his second straight start, giving up five runs and eight hits in 4 2/3 innings.

     - Atlanta's lead in the NL East is down to six games after Joe Ross combined with four relievers on a one-hitter in the Nationals' 3-0 shutout of the Diamondbacks. Ross gave up the hit and had five strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings en route to his first win in two years. Matt Adams broke a scoreless tie with a sixth-inning double, and Juan Soto hit a solo homer in the eighth to extend his career-high RBI streak to seven games.

Trevor Story and Ryan McMahon also homered for Colorado, which dropped San Francisco 3 1/2 games out of the second NL wild card.

     - The Phillies absorbed a 4-3 loss to the White Sox on Jose Abreu's RBI single in the 15th inning. Chicago extended the game when pinch-hitter Matt Skole lined an RBI single in the ninth to tie it at 3-3. Phillies pitcher Vince Velasquez played left field and threw out the potential go-ahead run in the 14th before Philadelphia fell one game behind the Cubs for the second NL wild-card berth.

     - The Padres were 5-2 winners over the Dodgers behind Eric Lauer, who held the NL West leaders to two runs and three hits over six innings. Lauer is 4-0 with a 1.72 ERA in six career starts versus Los Angeles.

     - The Mets' seven-game winning streak is over after Melky Cabrera laced a two-run double while the Pirates scored five in the fourth to beat New York, 8-4.

     - Gleyber Torres belted a first-inning grand slam to account for the Yankees' scoring in a 4-2 win over the Red Sox. James Paxton gave up a two-run homer by J.D.

     - The Twins outscored the Royals, 11-9 as Nelson Cruz homered and drove in five.

     - Lance Lynn shares the major league victory lead after allowing a run and four hits while striking out 10 over seven innings of the Rangers' 5-4 verdict over the Tigers. Lynn allowed just one hit after the first inning and improved to 14-6. Rougned Odor and Hunter Pence homered for Texas.

     - Freddy Galvis was 3-for-4 with a homer and two RBIs in the Blue Jays' 5-2 victory at Baltimore. Brandon Drury connected in the sixth for a 4-0 lead, giving Toronto a major league-leading 81 home runs since June 16. Nick Kingham worked three innings for the win.



     UNDATED (AP) - Indians pitcher Danny Salazar has returned to the injured list with a strained right groin, one day after appearing in his first game in two years. Salazar pitched on a major league mound Thursday for the first time since the 2017 AL Division Series, allowing two runs over four innings against the Astros. The 2016 All-Star has been dealing with right arm and shoulder injuries that have sidetracked a once promising career.

     The Indians also put pitcher Tyler Olson on the 10-day IL with a non-baseball medical condition and recalled Hunter Wood and Phil Maton from Triple-A Columbus.

     Also, Cleveland manager has returned to the team after missing Thursday's game because of surgery for a tear in his retina. Francona said his eye had been bothering him for about a month.

     - Ben Zobrist is starting a minor league assignment three months after leaving the Cubs to deal with a divorce.

Zobrist was the MVP of the 2016 World Series when the Cubs beat Cleveland to end a 108-year championship drought.

     - The Angels have designated catcher Jonathan Lucroy for assignment. Lucroy sustained a concussion and broken nose during a home plate collision with Houston's Jake Marisnick on July 7. He missed 18 games and was activated Wednesday.

     - Jung Ho Kang's time with the Pirates is over after the club designated the struggling South Korean third baseman/shortstop for assignment. Kang hit .169 with 10 home runs and 24 RBIs in 65 games this season. He had a promising rookie season in 2015 and hit 21 homers in 2016 before a drunken-driving arrest in South Korea caused his career to go into a tailspin.
