MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Lance Lynn gave up five hits over 6 2/3 innings in his most efficient outing of the season, and Brian Dozier drove in three runs with a pair of doubles to help the Minnesota Twins beat the Detroit Tigers 6-0. Lynn lowered his ERA from 7.47 to 6.34 in his ninth start, striking out four and walking one. Dozier's two-run liner capped a three-run fifth for Minnesota, which won its third straight game. Ehire Adrianza added a pair of RBI doubles.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Dylan Donahue feels fortunate to have a second chance. At football. And, most of all, at life. The New York Jets linebacker knew he needed to make some major changes this offseason after making a decision that nearly cost him everything. Donahue calls a 30-day stay in a substance-abuse treatment facility in Florida was "life-changing."
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - After 20 years in NHL management, Paul Fenton has his first opportunity to run a team as the new general manager of the Minnesota Wild. They're counting on him to lead them to that elusive Stanley Cup. Wild owner Craig Leipold hired Fenton for a fresh perspective on a team that has made the playoff six straight times but won only two series during the streak. Fenton thinks the team needs some tweaks but not a significant rebuild.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was back on the field throwing passes less than six months after knee surgery ended his season. Wentz wore a brace on his surgically repaired left knee and tossed passes to assistant coaches and ballboys as the Super Bowl champion Eagles kicked off organized team activities. Wentz isn't medically cleared to participate with the rest of the team. Nick Foles would be the starter if Wentz isn't ready for the season opener on Sept. 6 against the Falcons.
