ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Washington Nationals' six-game winning streak has been snapped in a 7-0 loss to the Los Angeles Angels. Right-hander Alex Meyer allowed only one hit in seven innings, and Mike Trout and C.J. Cron hit two-run homers to lead the Los Angeles Angels to the shutout victory. The 6-foot-9 Meyer had a perfect game until he walked Anthony Rendon with two outs in the fifth. He lost his no-hitter in the sixth. Gio Gonzalez was charged with four runs, five hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Coming off his worst start of the season, the Minnesota Twins' Jose Berrios allowed just one run to lead the Twins to a 6-1 win over the New York Yankees. That gave Minnesota their first home series win against the Yankees in nine years. Despite a 10-22 record in the past 32 games, Yankees manager Joe Girardi is expressing optimism.

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have a slugfest going against the Texas Rangers. The Orioles beat the faltering Rangers 10-2 at home on Wednesday and will attempt to complete a four-game sweep on Thursday. Baltimore has outscored Texas 25-4 in the series. Kevin Gausman pitched six innings of four-hit ball. The Rangers have dropped four straight and scored only eight runs in their last five games.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Omar Gonzalez and Eric Lichaj (lih-KY') scored late in the first half and the United States soccer squad beat El Salvador 2-0 Wednesday night in an ugly Gold Cup quarterfinal. Defender Henry Romero appeared to first bite Jozy Altidore on the back of a shoulder and then twisted the American forward's nipple. The incident didn't draw a penalty but Romero could still face discipline. The U.S. advances to a semifinal against Costa Rica on Saturday in Arlington, Texas.

LOVELOCK, Nev. (AP) — O.J. Simpson may find out Thursday if he will move on to the next phase of his life: parole from prison. The 70-year-old Pro Football Hall of Fame recipient goes before a Nevada parole board to plead for his freedom. Simpson has served more than eight years for armed robbery and assault with a weapon after trying to take back sports memorabilia in a hotel room in Las Vegas. Multiple media outlets will carry the hearing live.
