    MINNESOTA TWINS

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Nelson Cruz homered and drove in three runs on four hits for Minnesota in his second game back from a wrist injury, yet another powerful performance at the plate by the 39-year-old designated hitter for the Twins in a 14-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday.
 
     Max Kepler hit a two-run homer to stay one ahead of Cruz for the team lead, starting pitcher Michael Pineda (9-5) stayed strong for seven innings, and the Twins raised their lead on Cleveland in the AL Central race to three games. That's the biggest it's been in two weeks.
 
     Cruz, who gave the Twins a scare by rupturing a tendon in his left wrist during a swing in a game against the Indians on Aug. 8, returned from the minimum stay on the injured list on Monday. He's 6 for 11 with four RBIs after his reinstatement, pushing his age-defiant season totals to 33 home runs and 80 RBIs in just 89 games.
 
     Cruz, who signed with the Twins for $14 million this year with a club option for 2020 at a market-bargain $12 million, has 15 homers in his last 20 games. He hit a career-high three doubles in this one and became the first Twins player since Michael Cuddyer in 2005 with four extra-base hits in a game.
 
     Jose Abreu, whose three-run home run the game before lifted the White Sox to a 6-4 win, took Pineda deep for a two-run shot after Tim Anderson's RBI double for a 3-0 lead in the third. Anderson homered in the sixth inning, too, but the damage against Reynaldo Lopez (7-11) was already done by then.
 
     Cruz tied the game with his home run in the fourth. Then he drilled a two-run double off the wall in right field with the bases loaded in the fifth, and Eddie Rosario followed with a two-run single for a 7-3 lead. Lopez got the first two outs of that inning on groundballs, too, but Kepler reached on an error when Lopez fielded his comebacker and watched Abreu drop his toss to first base. Then he hit Jorge Polanco with a pitch, a drawn-out at-bat extended by a loose squirrel on the field.
 
     Polanco hit a two-run homer in a seven-run eighth, one of six extra-base hits in the inning alone and 10 in the game for the Twins, who lead the major leagues in home runs and are third in doubles. The Twins have at least one extra-base hit in 80 straight games, their fourth-longest streak in team history.
 
     PINEDA'S PITCHING
 
     Twins starters have put them in early holes far too frequently since the All-Star break, but Pineda deftly recovered from his deficit. He threw 70 of 88 pitches for strikes, a season-best percentage (79.5).
 
     FURRY FURY
 
     For the second consecutive night, play was halted for a moment by a squirrel that scampered onto the field. This time, the squirrel ran from right field straight through Kepler's legs while he took a lead at first base and into Chicago's dugout during the fifth inning. The escape route wound through foul territory along the third-base line and eventually through a tiny opening at the base of the wall in left-center. Cruz was at bat on Monday when a squirrel scurried into Minnesota's dugout.
 
     TRAINER'S ROOM
 
     Twins CF Byron Buxton, who missed his 18th straight game because of a separated left shoulder, went through workouts on the field again in the afternoon. He's not expected back for at least another week.
 
     UP NEXT
 
     White Sox RHP Lucas Giolito (13-6, 3.41 ERA) and Twins RHP Jake Odorizzi (13-5, 3.50 ERA) each take the mound on Wednesday afternoon for the series finale in a matchup of All-Stars.

    MINNESOTA LYNX

     LOS ANGELES (AP) - Candace Parker had 20 points and 10 rebounds for her third double-double, Chelsea Gray added 17 points, and the Los Angeles Sparks beat the Minnesota Lynx 81-71 on Tuesday night.
 
     Los Angeles used a 23-4 second-quarter spurt to take a 49-32 lead at the break and opened the second half on a 17-4 run for a 30-point advantage.
 
     The Sparks scored just six points through the first 8 minutes of the fourth quarter as Minnesota pulled to 74-67 on Lexie Brown's fourth 3-pointer of the game. But Parker answered with a 3 and the Lynx did not get closer than eight points from there.
 
     Alexis Jones scored a career-high 15 points - all in the first half - for Los Angeles (16-10). Nneka Ogwumike added eight points and eight rebounds for the Sparks, who have won nine straight at home.
 
     Brown led Minnesota (13-15) with 20 points, and Napheesa Collier added 14. The Lynx have lost three straight.

     MLB-SCHEDULE

     UNDATED (AP) - The Minnesota Twins clobbered the White Sox on Tuesday to increase their lead in the AL Central to three games over Cleveland.

     Nelson Cruz was 4-for-5 with a solo homer, three RBIs and three runs scored as the Twins stormed past Chicago, 14-4. Max Kepler added his team-leading 34th home run of the season to stay one ahead of the 39-year-old Cruz in the power department.

     Kepler drove in three runs and scored three times to back Michael Pineda (pih-NAY'-dah), who lasted seven innings after spotting the White Sox a 3-0 lead in the top of the third.

     The Indians were knocked off in New York as Michael Conforto belted a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the sixth before the Mets broke open an eventual 9-2 rout of Cleveland. Pete Alonso hit a two-run double to cap a four-run seventh in New York's third straight win. J.D. Davis also went deep and Steven Matz permitted only one earned run over 6 1/3 innings to help the Mets improve to 25-10 since the All-Star break.

     Elsewhere on major league diamonds:

     - George Springer, Jose Altuve and Martin Maldonado homered to lead the Astros past the Tigers, 6-3. Houston starter Aaron Sanchez gave up four hits and three runs with two walks in a season-low 2 1/3 innings before landing on the injured list with a sore pectoral muscle. Brad Peacock took over for Sanchez and struck out three in 1 2/3 scoreless innings, helping Houston retain its eight-game lead over Oakland atop the AL West.

     - Matt Olson and Mark Canha hit back-to-back homers in the first inning to jumpstart the Oakland Athletics' fifth victory in six games, 6-2 over the New York Yankees. Homer Bailey worked around seven hits over 5 2/3 innings, blanking the Yanks following a solo homer by Gary Sanchez in the first inning. Domingo German fell to 16-3 and had his career-best seven-game winning streak snapped by yielding five earned runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings.

     - Tom Murphy ran his home run streak to four games by slamming a tiebreaking, two-run shot in the sixth inning of the Mariners' 7-4 victory over the Rays. Kyle Seager went deep for the M's, giving him eight home runs during his 14-game hitting streak. Tommy Milone got the win after giving up four runs in five innings of Seattle's sixth victory in eight games.

     - Andrew Heaney had a career-high 14 strikeouts without a walk over eight innings of the Angels' 5-1 victory against the Rangers in Game 1 of a doubleheader. Luis Rengifo also hit a two-run shot to support Heaney, who allowed just four hits and blanked the Rangers until Willie Calhoun's two-out homer in the sixth. Mike Trout belted his 42nd home run to tie Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger for the major league lead.

     - The Rangers gained a split of the twinbill as Delino DeShields raced home from second on an error by first baseman Albert Pujols to complete a 3-2 win over Los Angeles. Nick Solak blasted his first career homer and hit a hard two-out shot that got past Pujols. Emmanuel Clase worked two perfect innings for his first major league victory.

     - The Orioles ended an eight-game skid by downing the Royals, 4-1 on Hanser Alberto's tiebreaking, three-run homer in the eighth inning. Dylan Bundy struck out seven and allowed one run and five hits over seven innings. Brad Keller's bid for his first win since July 24 ended when reliever Richard Lovelady allowed a game-tying single to Rio Ruiz in the seventh.

     - Dexter Fowler supplied a tiebreaking, bases-loaded double and drove in four runs as the Cardinals beat the Brewers, 9-4 to keep their half-game lead over Chicago in the NL Central. The Cardinals added two more runs when Fowler and Tommy Edman drew bases-loaded walks. Kolten Wong hit a two-run single to help St. Louis win for the ninth time in 11 games.

     - Anthony Rizzo homered twice and the Cubs stayed a half-game behind the
NL Central-leading Cardinals by topping the Giants, 5-3. Cole Hamels permitted three runs and five hits over six innings en route to his first win since June 12 at Colorado. Nicholas Castellanos also went deep and Jonathan Lucroy snapped a 3-3 deadlock with an RBI single in the fifth.

     - The Braves' 5-1 win over the Marlins gives Atlanta a six-game lead over Washington atop the NL East. Freddie Freeman was 3-for-4 with a pair of homers, four RBIs and three runs scored. Dallas Keuchel fanned seven and allowed six hits over six frames, including Jon Berti's third-inning homer.

     - The Nationals' bullpen wasted a strong outing from Stephen Strasburg by surrendering four runs in the eighth inning of a 4-1 loss to the Pirates. Starling Marte belted a three-run homer off Daniel Hudson to cap the winning rally. Strasburg limited Pittsburgh to four hits and a walk over seven shutout innings, leaving with a 1-0 lead.

     - Clayton Kershaw became the Dodgers' all-time winningest left-hander by allowing three runs over six innings of a 16-3 blowout over the Blue Jays. Kershaw moved one ahead of Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax with his 167th victory. Will Smith hit a go-ahead, two-run homer and Cody Bellinger notched his 100th RBI of the season with a three-run double that put Los Angeles ahead, 8-2 in the fourth inning.

     - Aaron Nola is 12-3 after giving up two runs on four hits with seven strikeouts over seven innings of the Phillies' 3-2 triumph over the Red Sox. Nola and the Philadelphia bullpen blanked Boston following Jackie Bradley Jr.'s two-run homer in the third. Jean Segura doubled home a pair in a three-run first for the Phils.

     - Pinch-hitter Jake Lamb furnished a tiebreaking, two-run single in the sixth inning and Eduardo Escobar followed with a two-run triple before the Diamondbacks held on to beat the Rockies, 8-7. Arizona scored five runs in the sixth off Colorado starter Kyle Freeland and reliever Bryan Shaw.

     - Freddy Galvis launched a tiebreaking, two-run blast in the sixth inning to push the Reds past the Padres, 3-2. Sonny Gray improved to 9-6 by limiting San Diego to a run and four this while striking out 10 over six innings. Cal Quantrill struck out nine over six innings for the Padres.

     MLB-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - Indians ace Corey Kluber has been shut down for two weeks with an abdominal strain suffered while continuing his rehab from a broken arm. Kluber was pulled from a minor league start for Triple-A Columbus at Charlotte on Sunday after one inning because of abdominal tightness. He hasn't pitched for the Indians since May 1, when he was struck by a line drive at Miami.

     In other MLB news:

     - Cubs reliever Steve Cishek has been activated after spending time on the injured list due to left hip inflammation. Infielder David Bote was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Monday to make room for Cishek, who is 3-5 with seven saves and a 3.58 ERA in 54 games this year.

     - Mets reliever Robert Gsellman has a partially torn lat muscle that puts the rest of his season in jeopardy. The injury was confirmed in an MRI, a blow to the Mets' bullpen as the team tries to earn a playoff berth. Gsellman is 2-3 with a 4.66 ERA and one save in 52 appearances covering 63 2/3 innings.

     - Braves reliever Jacob Webb is likely done for the season after being placed on the 60-day injured list with an ailing right elbow. The 26-year-old Webb had been one of the most effective pitchers in Atlanta's shaky bullpen, with a 4-0 record, two saves and a 1.39 ERA in 36 appearances.

     - Pitcher Felix Hernandez will rejoin the Mariners' starting rotation this weekend, according to manager Scott Servais. The 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner has missed three months with right shoulder stiffness. He pitched 3-plus innings Monday night for Triple-A Tacoma in his fourth rehab appearance, giving up one run on four hits and three walks while striking out five.

     - Authorities in the Dominican Republic have arrested former MLB pitcher Octavio Dotel and cited ex-infielder Luis Castillo for their alleged links to a drug-trafficking and money-laundering ring. The country's attorney general says police are also actively pursuing the suspected leader of the ring, Cesar Emilio Peralta, also known as "Cesar the Abuser."

     NFL-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - Star receiver Antonio Brown was back on the field for the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday after missing the previous practice as part of his dispute with the league and union over his helmet.

     Brown took part in a walkthrough without wearing a helmet and then went into the weight room as the rest of his teammates stretched. Brown came back out toward the end of the stretch but wasn't wearing a helmet like all of his teammates who were practicing.

     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.

     In other NFL news:

     - The Patriots have cut punter Ryan Allen, who booted them to three Super Bowl victories in six seasons. First signed as an undrafted free agent in 2013, he put three of his five punts inside the 20-yard line during February's Super Bowl victory over the Rams. The move likely means fifth-round draft choice Jake Bailey will make the team.

     - The Cowboys have agreed on a contract extension with young linebacker Jaylon Smith while the holdout by Pro Bowl running back Ezekiel Elliott nears a month since the team reported to training camp. Smith was a second-round draft pick by the Cowboys in 2016 but didn't make his NFL debut until a year later. He started all 16 games last season.

     - Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will miss another week of practice as he continues recovering from a lower left leg injury. He last practiced July 28. The Colts already had said the injury probably would keep Luck out of the entire preseason.

     - A person familiar with the situation says Broncos rookie quarterback Drew Lock will miss the rest of the preseason with a sprained right thumb. Lock is competing with Kevin Hogan to be Joe Flacco's backup.
