MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Miguel Sano hit a three-run home run, Jose Berrios went strong into the seventh inning and the Minnesota Twins beat New York 6-1. It was the Twins' first home series against the Yankees in nine years. Berrios allowed only one run, his fewest in 11 starts. Sano hit his 23rd home run.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Buster Posey pinch hit a two-out, two-run double in the bottom of the eighth inning as the San Francisco Giants defeated the Cleveland Indians 5-4. Posey, on a scheduled rest day, doubled off the wall on a 3-2 slider on the seventh offering from Indians reliever Bryan Shaw.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Sonny Gray struck out six pitching into the seventh inning in what might have been his final home start in Oakland if the club tries to deal him before the trade deadline. The Athletics rallied in the fifth to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-2. Matt Joyce hit a towering homer to the right-field seats in the eighth for Oakland.

LOVELOCK, Nev. (AP) — Instead of a blurry No. 32, 70-year-old O.J. Simpson will be wearing an inmate uniform with No. 1027820 when he appears before a Nevada parole board tomorrow. He's spent more than eight years behind bars for armed robbery and assault with a weapon after trying to take back sports memorabilia in a budget hotel room in Las Vegas. Parole is a likely possibility with his clean prison record. Simpson was acquitted of murder in the 1995 "trial of the century" in Los Angeles.

WOODBURY, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut officials say the wife of longtime ESPN broadcaster Chris Berman died from blunt trauma and drowning after her car hit another vehicle in May. The Hartford Courant reports the death of 67-year-old Katherine Ann Berman was an accident. Toxicology results were not released. Her vehicle rear-ended a SUV, went down an embankment and into water. The other driver, who was 87 and not wearing a seatbelt, was also killed.
