    MINNESOTA TWINS

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jose Abreu hit a towering three-run homer in Chicago's four-run second inning, helping Ivan Nova and the White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 6-4 on Monday night.
 
     Nova (9-9) allowed 10 hits and two runs in 5 1/3 innings, with both runs scoring among Minnesota's first three batters of the game. Abreu connected for his 27th homer, driving a Kyle Gibson offering deep to the second deck above the bullpens in left-center field.
 
     Nova improved to 5-0 with a 0.85 ERA in his last six starts. Alex Colome worked a rocky ninth for his 24th save in 25 chances.
 
     Gibson (11-6) surrendered five runs in 6 2/3 innings as the Twins missed a chance to increase their 2 1/2-game lead in the American League Central over idle Cleveland. Minnesota returned home for the start of the three-game series after a 5-1 road trip.
 
     Jorge Polanco hit his 18th homer for the Twins, who lead the league with 241 homers and have an extra-base hit in 79 straight games, the fourth-longest streak in team history.
 
     Eddie Rosario hit an RBI single in the ninth, but Colome struck out Miguel Sano with two runners on to end the game.
 
     Minnesota also got off to a fast start against Nova, but missed out on a chance for more.
 
     Hitting in the leadoff spot for the first time, rookie Luis Arraez doubled over the head of center fielder Leury Garcia after a 10-pitch at-bat. Polanco followed with a double to right field and Nelson Cruz singled home Polanco.
 
     Nova continually escaped trouble from there, stranding five baserunners over the first four innings.
 
     Gibson got into trouble in the third. Ryan Goins singled in a run before Abreu went deep. Goins had three hits and scored twice.
 
     Gibson retired 10 straight batters at one point, but Tim Anderson doubled to start the seventh and later scored on a suicide squeeze by Yolmer Sanchez.
 
     MISSED OPPORTUNITY
 
     The Twins regained and built their advantage over the Indians since Cleveland left Minnesota on August 11th after taking three games in a four-game set. But the Twins couldn't continue their momentum against distant third-place Chicago, which Minnesota had beaten 11 of the previous 14 meetings.
 
     Starting Monday, the Twins' next 13 games are against the White Sox and Detroit Tigers.
 
     TRAINER'S ROOM
 
     Twins: Cruz was reinstated from the injured list after the minimum 10-day absence and he will play through the ruptured tendon in his wrist. Cruz has reported being pain-free. ... OF Max Kepler was out of the starting lineup after leaving Sunday's game due to heat exhaustion. Manager Rocco Baldelli said Kepler was available. ... OF Byron Buxton (left shoulder subluxation) has taken light swings and reported no issues. Buxton played catch on the field before Monday's game and has hit off a tee and soft toss.
 
     UP NEXT
 
     White Sox: RHP Reynaldo Lopez (7-10, 5.29 ERA) will start tonight, looking to keep his strong run intact. Lopez owns a 2.91 ERA (14 earned runs in 43 1/3 innings) in seven starts since the All-Star break.
 
     Twins: RHP Michael Pineda (8-5, 4.20 ERA) will make his second start since coming off the injured list after being sidelined by a right triceps strain. Pineda gave up three runs in five innings last week against Texas.

     MLB-SCHEDULE-BREWERS-CARDINALS

     ST. LOUIS (AP) - Pitcher Dakota Hudson carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning and Paul DeJong homered, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 3-0 win Monday over the Milwaukee Brewers. Hudson, who is 12 and 6 on the year, pitched 6 2/3 innings, striking out seven and walking four. He threw 111 pitches, 64 for strikes, before being lifted after walking Eric Thames with two outs in the seventh. His seven strikeouts tied a career high.

     The victory moved the Cardinals into sole possession of first place in the NL Central over the idle Chicago Cubs. The Brewers fell to three games behind St. Louis.

     In other Monday MLB action:

     - Yuli Gurriel had two hits and drove in two runs as the Houston Astros built a lead with a big first inning and held on for a 5-4 win over the Detroit Tigers. The Astros jumped on Detroit starter Edwin Jackson for four runs in the first inning to go ahead 4-1.

     - Jose Abreu hit a towering three-run homer to cap a four-run second inning, and Ivan Nova survived early trouble to win his fifth straight decision as the Chicago White Sox beat the division-leading Minnesota Twins 6-4 Monday night.

     - Asdrubal Cabrera hit the last of Washington's four home runs and drove in five runs, and three relievers combined for 6 2/3 innings of one-hit ball as the Nationals thumped the Pittsburgh Pirates 13-0. The Nationals have scored 79 runs in their last eight games while going 7-1. They've scored 43 times in their past three, including a 15-14 loss.

     - Tom Murphy homered twice and drove in four runs, Austin Nola also went deep and had three RBIs, and the Seattle Mariners beat the playoff-contending Tampa Bay Rays 9-3. Murphy, who had three hits and a walk, hit a three-run drive in the first inning and added a solo shot in the fifth. Nola had a two-run homer during a four-run second off Rays two-way player Brendan McKay and had an RBI single in the fourth.

     - Kirby Yates came close to giving it up, but found the pitch he needed to finish it off. Yates fanned Eugenio Suarez with the bases loaded, preserving a 3-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds that reminded the Padres of the importance of having a dependable closer, even when he's not having his best day.

     - Nicky Lopez and Nick Dini homered on successive pitches in the seventh inning and the Kansas City Royals stretched Baltimore's latest losing streak to eight games, defeating the Orioles 5-4. Kansas City won for only the sixth time in its last 22 games and Baltimore absorbed its 13th loss in 14 games.

     - Francisco Mejia moved San Diego closer to the club record for homers with his solo shot off the foul pole, Manny Machado had another big hit off Trevor Bauer, and the Padres held on for a 3-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

     - The Los Angeles Angels returned to Texas for the first time since pitcher Tyler Skaggs was found dead in his hotel room before the start of a series at the Rangers last month, losing 8-7 in 11 innings after letting a six-run lead get away. Isiah Kiner-Falefa brought home the winning run with a high-chop infield single that scored Jose Trevino and ended the Rangers' four-game losing streak. Shohei Ohtani extended the longest hitting streak of his career
to 10 games with an RBI triple.

     - Carson Kelly hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the eighth inning, part of a three-run rally that sent the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 5-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies. David Peralta added a two-run triple in the eighth, making a winner of reliever Yoan Lopez after he got two outs in the top of the inning. Wade Davis took the loss after giving up Kelly's home run.

     NFL-49ERS-BRONCOS

     DENVER (AP) - Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders had a better return to action than 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in San Francisco's 24-15 preseason win at Denver on Monday night.

     Broncos rookie QB Drew Lock injured his right thumb when he was sacked on the first series of the second half, cutting short his most significant action of the preseason in his quest to win the backup job behind starter Joe Flacco.

     Sanders caught a 5-yard pass from Flacco on the Broncos' first offensive play and added a 19-yard run on a reverse in his first game since tearing his left Achilles tendon in practice last December. (He also hauled in a 45-yard reception that was erased by left tackle Garett Bolles' holding penalty.)

     Garoppolo went just 1 for 6 for zero yards and an interception in his first game since suffering a season-ending knee injury last September.

     MLB-RED SOX SALE

     BOSTON (AP) - Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale is receiving treatment for inflammation in his elbow that will shut him down for the rest of the regular season, another blow to the defending World Series champions whose postseason hopes appear all but dashed.

     Orthopedist Dr. James Andrews gave Sale an injection of platelet-rich plasma on Monday and said he will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

     Looking beyond this frustrating season, the treatment could be good news for the club, which feared Sale might need Tommy John surgery. That would likely have cost him the 2020 season.

     Boston was off Monday and was 6 1/2 games out of a wild card spot.

     Sale signed a six-year, $160 million contract in March that includes $50 million in deferred money.

     In other MLB news:

     - Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer is expected to come off the injured list to start Thursday against Pittsburgh. The three-time Cy Young Award winner had a bullpen session Monday. Scherzer has been on the injured list for most of the past six weeks because of a strained muscle in his back. Scherzer is 9-5 with a 2.41 ERA in 20 starts. His 12.7 strikeouts per nine innings leads the NL.

     - The Braves have claimed outfielder Billy Hamilton off waivers from the Kansas City Royals to bolster their injury-plagued roster. The 28-year-old Hamilton is a five-time Gold Glove finalist and switch-hitter who gives Atlanta some defensive options and speed off the bench. He played in 93 games for the Royals, hitting .211 with 18 stolen bases.

     NFL-PACKERS-RODGERS

     GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Aaron Rodgers is participating in practice and is expected to play in the Packers' third preseason game against the Oakland Raiders in Canada.

     Green Bay general manager Brian Gutekunst said Monday the plan is for the two-time MVP to make his preseason debut Thursday night in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

     Rodgers sat out the Packers' second preseason game in Baltimore and was sidelined during practice Sunday with back tightness.

     Rodgers, along with 25 other teammates, did not dress for the first preseason game against Houston.

     Thursday will mark the third time the Packers have played a preseason game outside the United States.

     In other NFL news:

     - Star receiver Antonio Brown has returned to training camp with the Oakland Raiders a day after being given an ultimatum by general manager Mike Mayock to be "all in or all out." Brown didn't attend practice Sunday as he works to find a helmet that he's comfortable using and that meets safety standards set by the NFL and NFLPA.

     - The New England Patriots have placed receiver Josh Gordon on the non-football injury list while he gets back into shape following his suspension. The move comes after the NFL conditionally lifted the suspension. Gordon was suspended indefinitely in December for violations of the league's substance abuse policy.

     - Jim Hardy, the oldest living University of Southern California and Los Angeles Rams football player who was the MVP of the 1945 Rose Bowl, has died. He was 96. The university said he died Aug. 16 of natural causes at his home in the desert city of La Quinta. Hardy played seven seasons in the NFL.

     NBA-HAWKS-SCHLENK

     ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Hawks have given general manager Travis Schlenk an extra title: president of basketball operations.

     Owner Tony Ressler announced the promotion on Monday, saying he is "extremely pleased with the direction that Travis and our entire basketball operations team has us heading as a franchise."

     As he goes into his third year with the Hawks, Schlenk has totally overhauled the roster and assembled an impressive core of young players through the draft, including Trae Young, John Collins and incoming first-round picks De'Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish.

     The Hawks have endured two straight losing seasons but Ressler says the massive rebuilding job has provided "the cap space, draft picks and financial flexibility needed to have long-term success in the NBA."

     TENNIS-MATCH-FIXING

     LONDON (AP) - Chilean tennis player Juan Carlos Saez has been banned for eight years for match-fixing.

     The Tennis Integrity Unit says Saez refused to cooperate with its investigation and also failed to report "a corrupt approach" at a tournament.

     Saez originally attracted the TIU's attention because of evidence of
unusual patterns on betting markets around his matches.

     Saez's career high ranking is 230. He is currently 1,082nd after his ranking dropped during the investigation. He hasn't played a tournament since November.

     According to the TIU, 12 mostly low-ranked players have been sanctioned so far in 2019 for various charges related to match-fixing and betting, along with one coach and one umpire. Others are suspended while under investigation.
