     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Sam Fuld hit a tiebreaking, two-run single off Javy Guerra in a three-run seventh inning, and the Minnesota Twins defeated the Chicago White Sox 4-3 Sunday to avoid a four-game sweep.  Danny Santana had two RBIs for the last-place Twins, who won for just the 11th time in their last 30 games.
 
     Chicago led 2-1 in the seventh when Minnesota loaded the bases against Ronald Belisario on walks to Josh Willingham and Eric Fryer around a single by Chris Parmelee.
 
     Guerra relieved and retired Eduardo Escobar on a foulout, and Santana hit a tying sacrifice fly just deep enough to left-center field. Fuld followed with a line-drive single up the middle and was thrown out at second when he tried to advance.
 
     Adrian Nieto homered in the eighth off Casey Fien, Nieto's first in 76 career big league at-bats. All-Star Glen Perkins retired Gordon Beckham on a bases-loaded flyout for his 25th save in 28 chances.

     UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) - Maya Moore had 17 points, seven rebounds and four assists to help the Minnesota Lynx beat the Connecticut Sun 76-65 on Sunday.  Rebekkah Brunson had nine points and 10 rebounds for the Lynx and Janel McCarville had 11 points and seven rebounds. Seimone Augustus also scored 13.
 
     Kelsey Bone had 15 points and nine rebounds and Alyssa Thomas added eight points and nine rebounds for the Sun, who have lost 10 of 12.
 
     It was just the second game in which defending WNBA champion Minnesota had its entire team available. Brunson missed the first 24 games after knee surgery. Augustus returned Friday after being out eight games with a knee injury.
 
     Minnesota led for all but 47 seconds in the first quarter. Tan White's 3-pointer gave the Lynx a 17-16 lead with 3 minutes, 8 seconds left and they never relinquished it.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have signed tight end Kyle Rudolph to a five-year contract extension.  The Vikings announced the deal Sunday night. The deal, which was first reported by Fox Sports, is worth $36.5 million with just $20 million guaranteed. Incentives can push the deal to $40 million.
 
     Rudolph missed eight games because of a broken left foot last season. He caught 30 passes for 313 yards and three touchdowns last year, but was still named to the Pro Bowl and earned MVP honors in the game.
 
     Rudolph was entering the final year of his rookie contract, and the Vikings know what he can do when he is healthy. In 2012, he caught nine touchdown passes and provided the team with a big, speedy threat over the middle.

     INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Jeff Gordon won the first Brickyard 400 in 1994.  He's now a record-breaking five-time winner in the Sprint Cup race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  Gordon grabbed the lead from Kasey Kahne during a re-start with 17 laps to go and pulled way for the victory.  
 
     Kyle Busch finished a distance second, followed by Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano.   
 
     The win moves Gordon into a tie with Michael Schumacher, whose five Formula One victories at Indy had been the gold standard.  The victory also adds to Gordon's lead in the NASCAR Sprint Cup points standings.

     INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Carl Edwards' 11-year run with Roush-Fenway Racing will end after this NASCAR season.  Roush officials confirm that Edwards will not be back in the No. 99 Ford, which had long been rumored but not substantiated because Edwards refuses to publicly discuss contract negotiations. He's believed to be headed to Joe Gibbs Racing in a new fourth car, but his contract with Roush doesn't permit him to announce his plans until September.

     UNDATED (AP) - The first-place Los Angeles Dodgers gave Jake Peavy a rude greeting in his debut for the San Francisco Giants.  The Dodgers roughed up Peavy for four runs in six innings as they finished a three-game sweep with a 4-3 victory at AT&T Park. Carl Crawford's RBI triple highlighted a three-run fifth inning against Peavy. The victory gives the Dodgers a game and a-half lead over the Giants in the NL West.
 
     The 33-year-old right-hander started against the division-leading Dodgers, a day after being acquired in a trade with Boston. Peavy was 1-9 with Boston. Dan Uggla, another new acquisition, didn't fare very well either. The Giants second baseman went 0-for-3 and made two errors leading to an unearned run. Uggla was 0-for-8 with three errors in the series.
 
     The Dodgers beat the Giants on consecutive nights with great pitching from Zack Greinke, Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu. Ryu improved to 12-5 by holding the Giants to three runs in six innings, striking out seven.
 
     In other Sunday baseball:
 
     - The Tampa Bay Rays' nine-game win streak is over. David Ortiz's three-run home run, his 25th of the season, helped the Boston Red Sox end their five-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Rays.
 
     - The Toronto Blue Jays won their first series at Yankee Stadium in nearly two years by edging the Yankees 5-4. Dioner Navarro hit a go-ahead single with two outs in the ninth for the Jays, who have a one-game lead over the Yanks for the second wild card in the AL.
 
     - Adam Wainwright pitched seven scoreless innings and Matt Holliday hit a solo homer to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 1-0 victory and a series win over the Chicago Cubs. The Cardinals won two of the three games at Wrigley Field in the weekend set.
 
     - Doug Fister improved to 10-2 as the Washington Nationals beat slumping Cincinnati 4-2. Adam LaRoche drove in two runs. The Reds have lost eight of nine since the All-Star break.
 
     - Atlanta stayed a game and a-half back of Washington in the NL East by beating San Diego 8-3. Chris Johnson and Ryan Doumit each drove in two runs during Atlanta's six-run third inning.
 
     - Carlos Santana hit two more home runs, giving him six in six games, and the Cleveland Indians beat Kansas City 10-3. That ends the Royals' winning streak at five.

     - Slumping Ryan Howard hit a two-run homer in the first inning and scored what proved to be the winning run in the sixth to lead Philadelphia to a 4-2 win over Arizona.  Howard's 16th homer of the season came off of Diamondbacks starter Vidal Nuno.

     COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - The Baseball Hall of Fame has added six new members who have taken their place among the greats of the game.  
 
     It was a big day for the Atlanta Braves, who saw former pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine enshrined along with longtime manager Bobby Cox.  Those three were part of a dominating Braves era that saw the team win 14 straight division titles.  Maddux and Glavine are 300-game winners and Cox is fourth on the all-time victory list.
 
     No. 3 on that list is Tony LaRussa, who has also been inducted along with fellow managing great Joe Torre.  LaRussa is a four-time manager of the year who won 12 division titles, six pennants and three World Series. Torre is fifth on the managerial wins list and captured 10 division titles, six AL pennants and four World Series with the Yankees.
 
     Slugger Frank Thomas rounds out the class of 2014. He hit .301 with 521 homers and 1,704 RBIs in his 19-year career mostly with the White Sox.

     LOS ANGELES (AP) - Byron Scott says "it's a dream come true" to come back and be the new coach of the Los Angeles Lakers.  Scott, who won three NBA titles as a shooting guard for the Lakers, told KCBS-TV he will take over the club, which hasn't had a coach since Mike D'Antoni resigned April 30.  ESPN.com first reported Scott would take over the Lakers with a four-year, $17 million contract.
 
    In other NBA news:
 
    - Atlanta Hawks forward Paul Millsap was added to Team USA's roster for the training camp that opens Monday in Las Vegas. Millsap averaged 17.9 points last season for Atlanta and was selected to the Eastern Conference All-Star team.  USA Basketball also announced that Jimmy Butler will be unable to participate in the training camp because of a groin injury.  Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, LaMarcus Aldridge and NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard recently withdrew from the roster that will be cut to 12 for the FIBA World Cup in Spain.
 
     - LeBron James is returning to the No. 23 that he wore in his first go-around with the Cleveland Cavaliers and during his playing days dating back to high school.  James tweeted that he would wear 23 again after heading back to the Cavaliers from Miami, where he wore No. 6.  About 10 days ago, James turned to social media to help him choose which number he'll wear next season with the Cavaliers.
