    MINNESOTA TWINS

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota reliever Mike Morin hit former teammate Mike Trout with a bases-loaded pitch that forced in a run in the ninth inning before retiring Shohei Ohtani to end the game on a groundout and preserve an 8-7 victory by the Twins over the Los Angeles Angels Wednesday.
 
     Jonathan Lucroy had an RBI double and David Fletcher drove in a run with a single against Trevor Hildenberger in the three-run ninth, before the Twins turned to Morin for the final two outs and his first save this season. Morin gave up two of the season-high 18 hits by the Angels and plunked Trout on the shoulder.
 
     Byron Buxton and Jason Castro each hit two-run homers and Ehire Adrianza added a two-run double for the Twins, who took the three-game set from the Angels and improved their series record this season to 8-4-2. They've won 10 of their last 15 games, and they're 24-6 when scoring four or more runs. The Twins have 76 home runs in 42 games, the third-most in the major leagues.
 
     Twins starter Jake Odorizzi (6-2) had his scoreless streak stopped at 22 innings when Tommy La Stella took him deep in the third for his team-leading 11th homer. Lucroy tacked on a two-run shot in the sixth, which Odorizzi did not finish for the first time in four starts. He gave up nine hits and three runs in 5 1/3 innings, but this Twins lineup that's suddenly stacked with sluggers produced more than enough support.
 
     Angels starter Trevor Cahill (2-4) bore the brunt of that, allowing six hits and six runs in 4 1/3 innings. He failed to finish the fifth for the fifth time in his last six turns, and the major league leader in home runs allowed has now been taken deep 14 times after the drive to left-center by Buxton in the fifth.
 
     Castro homered off Luke Bard, his sixth of the season and the most uplifting hit of the afternoon for the Twins given the injury to fellow catcher Mitch Garver . The Twins lead the major leagues with 17 home runs and 40 RBIs from the catching position.
 
     The Angels went 3 for 17 with runners in scoring position, leaving 14 men on base. Blake Parker, their closer last season, struck out Ohtani with two runners on to finish the eighth. Trevor May, who has stranded all 10 runners he's inherited this season, relieved Odorizzi and ended the sixth with a fly out by La Stella to leave two on.
 
     TRAINER'S ROOM
 
     Twins: DH Nelson Cruz was held out for the third straight game because of a sore left wrist, but manager Rocco Baldelli said he was available to play if needed. "He's feeling a lot better," Baldelli said.
 
     UP NEXT
 
     Twins: RHP Michael Pineda (2-3, 5.85 ERA) takes his turn tonight in Seattle when the Twins start a four-game series against his original team the Mariners, who send RHP Erik Swanson (1-4, 6.35 ERA) to the mound.

     NBA PLAYOFFS-BUCKS/RAPTORS

     MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee Bucks are a step closer to their first trip to the NBA Finals since their memorable seven-game series with the Boston Celtics in 1974.

     Brook Lopez scored 13 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter and the Bucks rallied in the final minutes to beat the Toronto Raptors, 108-100 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. Lopez had a dunk with 2:20 left to put the Bucks ahead for good. He added a 3-pointer on the next Milwaukee possession to make it a four-point edge.

     Giannis Antetokounmpo added 24 points for the Bucks, who are trying to reach the Finals for the third time in team history, and the first without Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

     Malcolm Brogdon scored 15 and Nikola Mirotic had 13 for Milwaukee, which closed the game on a 10-0 run.

     The Raptors led by as many as 13 early and took an 83-76 lead into the final quarter. Kawhi Leonard scored 31 points and Kyle Lowry added 30 for Toronto.

     Game 2 is Friday in Milwaukee.

     NHL PLAYOFFS-SHARKS/BLUES

     ST. LOUIS (AP) - The San Jose Sharks have a two-games-to-one lead in the NHL's Western Conference final, thanks to a little help from the officials.

     Erik Karlsson scored 5:23 into overtime to complete the Sharks' 5-4 victory over the Blues in St. Louis. The goal occurred after officials missed a hand pass by Timo Meier moments earlier. Meier knocked a loose puck toward the net, and Gustav Nyquist retrieved it before sending it over to Karlsson for his second goal of the night.

     The officials huddled following complaints by the Blues, but the play wasn't reviewable and the goal stood.

     The Blues trailed 2-0 and 3-1, but they owned a 4-3 lead until Logan Couture tied it with 61 seconds left in regulation.

     Joe Thornton scored twice and Martin Jones made 28 saves for San Jose.

     David Perron had two goals for the Blues, who will host Game 4 on Friday.

     MLB SCHEDULE

     UNDATED (AP) - The New York Yankees' patchwork lineup came through again in a doubleheader sweep of the Baltimore Orioles. Gleyber Torres led the way with three home runs and Domingo German became the majors' first eight-game winner.

     Torres belted two of the Yankees' four homers in their Game 1 victory over the Birds, 5-3. Six of his eight home runs have come against Baltimore.

     Gary Sanchez and Cameron Maybin also went deep for the Yankees, who entered the twinbill with 57 homers in 40 games after belting a record 266 last year.

     Winning pitcher J.A. Happ gave up three runs over 5 1/3 innings, including home runs by Trey Mancini and Renato Nunez.

     In the nightcap, German struck out eight over seven innings of one-run ball as the Bombers earned a 3-1 victory. Luke Voit had three hits and two RBIs to support German.

     Aroldis Chapman picked up saves in each game, giving him 11 on the season.

     New York has won 20 of 27 its last games despite currently having 13 players on the injured list.

     Elsewhere around the majors:

     - Seven pitchers combined on a seven-hitter in the Rays' 1-0 shutout of the Marlins. Anthony Bemboom produced his first major league hit and RBI with a second-inning double. The Marlins lost their seventh consecutive game and are on pace for 122 losses.

     - The Red Sox blew a 5-0 lead before rookie Michael Chavis laced an RBI single in the bottom of the 10th to give Boston a 6-5 win over the Rockies. J.D. Martinez homered for the third straight game, a two-run shot off German Marquez while the Bosox were building a 5-0 lead by the third inning. Eduardo Rodriguez struck out 10 over six innings, but Trevor Story poked a two-run single while Colorado scored three in the seventh to tie it.

     - The Astros made it eight straight wins as Justin Verlander tossed two-hit ball over seven innings of a 5-1 verdict over the Tigers. Verlander struck out nine in his second start at Comerica Park since his 2017 trade from Detroit to Houston. Alex Bregman hit his 14th homer and Jake Marisnick added an RBI triple to help Verlander improve to 7-1.

     - Byron Buxton and Jason Castro each hit two-run homers and Ehire Adrianza added a two-run double while the Twins were building an 8-3 lead in an 8-7 victory over the Angels. Winning pitcher Jake Odorizzi had his scoreless streak stopped at 22 innings when Tommy La Stella homered in the third, and he allowed a two-run blast to Jonathan Lucroy in the sixth before improving to 6-2. Mike Morin retired Shohei Ohtani to end the game after the Angels scored three times in the ninth.

     - Ronald Guzman and Willie Calhoun each hit a two-run homer as the Rangers dumped the Royals, 6-1 to end a five-game skid. Shin-Soo Choo added a solo shot and Nomar Mazara matched a career high with four hits as texas beat Kansas City for the sixth time in their last eight meetings. Mike Minor was reached for just one run despite surrendering eight hits and two walks over five innings.

     - Edwin Jackson became the first player in major league history to play for 14 teams when he made his Blue Jays debut in a 4-3 loss at San Francisco, four days after being acquired from Oakland. Jackson allowed two earned runs and six hits in five innings, including a two-run homer by Aramis (ah-RAH'-mihs) Garcia. Brandon Crawford snapped a 3-3 deadlock with a solo blast in the sixth.

     - The Reds completed a 6-5 comeback win over the Cubs when Yasiel Puig hit a walk-off single in the 10th inning. The Cubs led 5-3 until Eugenio Suarez launched a two-run homer off Carl Edwards in the eighth inning. Chicago wasted a strong performance by Yu Davrish, who struck out 11 and allowed only two runs and five hits over 5 1/3 innings.

     - Gio Gonzalez was reached for just one run while pitching into the sixth inning of the Brewers' 5-2 victory at Philadelphia. Gonzalez is 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA in four starts since signing with Milwaukee following his requested release from the Yankees in April. Jesus Aguilar ripped a two-run single off Jake Arrieta in the third to give the Brewers a 4-1 lead.

     - Kenta Maeda struck out 12 batters and drove in both runs as the Dodgers downed the Padres, 2-0. Maeda gave up three hits in 6 2/3 innings and came within one of his career high for strikeouts. He also helped his own cause at the plate with two hits, including a two-out, two-run bloop single to right field in the second.

     - The Diamondbacks rolled over the Pirates, 11-1 as Zack Greinke pitched shutout ball into the eighth inning before exiting with a trainer. There was no immediate word on Greinke, who allowed four hits in 7 2-3 innings before walking off the mound with a 2-2 count on the Pirates' Cole Tucker. Blake Swihart hit a two-run, inside-the-park home run in the eighth, and Eduardo Escobar and Adam Jones also homered for the Diamondbacks.

     - Austin Riley homered in his major league debut and Mike Soroka scattered three this over seven innings as the Braves blanked the Cardinals, 4-0. Riley was called up from Triple-A Gwinnett before the game after Ender Inciarte went on the 10-day injured list with a sore back. Soroka lowered his ERA to 0.98 in six starts this season.

     - Patrick Corbin struck out 11 while limiting the Mets to a run and four hits over eight innings of the Nationals' 5-1 victory. Anthony Rendon was 3-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI in Washington's fourth win in 11 games. Victor Robles homered off starter Wilmer Font, who was tagged for five runs in just 2 1/3 innings.
