MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Texas Rangers were going to count on their bullpen Sunday after deciding to give All-Star pitcher Mike Minor extra rest heading into the break.

The relievers handled the job, even with added duty tacked on in the form of extra innings.

Rougned Odor’s three-run homer in the 11th inning gave Texas a 4-1 win against the Minnesota Twins on Sunday and four relievers combined for 9 1/3 scoreless innings against the majors’ top offense.

Shawn Kelley (4-2) pitched two innings for Texas, which had lost six of its previous seven games and three straight series. The Rangers decided to skip Minor’s turn on Sunday and the left-hander won’t pitch in the All-Star Game.

Odor’s 13th homer of the season, into the bullpens in left-center field, came off Minnesota left-hander Adalberto Mejía (0-2). Mejía walked Joey Gallo and Asdrúbal Cabrera ahead of Odor’s one-out home run.

The Twins enter the All-Star break with a 56-33 record, one win behind both the New York Yankees and Houston for the best win mark in the American League. Minnesota is five-and-a-half games ahead of Cleveland in the AL Central, with the two teams facing off against each other in a three-game series that starts Friday night in Cleveland.

BLAINE, Minn. (AP) — Matthew Wolff made a 26-foot putt from the fringe for an eagle on the final hole to win the 3M Open at 21 under par, beating fellow rookie Collin Morikawa and Bryson DeChambeau by one stroke in a tense finish to the first-time PGA Tour event. The 20-year-old Wolff sank the dramatic putt in front of a packed 18th gallery at the TPC Twin Cities, before watching Morikawa just miss his eagle try from 22 feet. Both Wolff and Morikawa were in the inaugural field on sponsor exemptions.

 

 

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — Odyssey Sims scored 21 points, Sylvia Fowles had a double-double and the Minnesota Lynx handed the Connecticut Sun their fourth-straight loss 74-71. Fowles had 18 points and 11 rebounds for Minnesota.
