MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Ryan Jeffers and Miguel Sanó homered, leading J.A. Happ and the Minnesota Twins over the Detroit Tigers 5-3. Jeffers’ homer with one out in the fifth inning marked Minnesota’s first runner against Tigers starter Tarik Skubal. Sanó started the seventh with his 15th homer of the season, tying it at 3. Max Kepler beat out an infield single and Gilberto Celestino followed with another grounder. Detroit tried to turn a double play, but Kepler was called safe at second and Celestino beat the relay throw to first. The Tigers requested a replay review, and it showed second baseman Willi Castro pulled his foot off the bag too quickly, keeping Kepler safe. After a sacrifice bunt, reliever José Cisnero unleashed a wild pitch that scored the go-ahead run.


SILVIS, Ill. (AP) — Sebastian Munoz had a solid start and a spectacular finish at the John Deere Classic in the Quad Cities. The Colombian finished with five straight birdies and shot a 63. That gave him a share of the lead at the TPC Deere Run with Chesson Hadley. They were one shot ahead of a trio of players. That includes Hank Lebioda, who was poised to join them. Lebioda was 7 under through 12 holes and tied for the lead until making bogey on his last hole. Ryder Cup captain Steve Stricker got off to a slow start and rallied for a 70.
