     KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Alex Gordon hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning, giving Kansas City a 2-1 win over the Minnesota Twins and helping the Royals avoid their first three-game skid since mid-July.
 
     The Royals had been shut down all night by the Twins' Ricky Nolasco, who scattered three hits over seven innings. But after going quietly in the eighth, the AL Central leaders managed to break through against closer Glen Perkins in the ninth.
 
     Alcides Escobar led off the inning with a blooper to shallow right for a single, and Gordon followed by swatting the second pitch he saw over the right-field wall for his 10th homer of the season.
 
     Wade Davis earned the win with a perfect ninth inning in relief.

     FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (AP) - Andrew Wiggins and the rest of the new Timberwolves got a warm welcome to Minnesota at the State Fair.  Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young were introduced on Tuesday after being acquired in last weekend's three-team deal that sent All-Star forward Kevin Love to Cleveland. Huge crowds turned out for the introductory press conference and for ensuing appearances by the players throughout the fairgrounds.
 
     Wiggins says he's not disappointed at all that he never got to play with LeBron James in Cleveland. The No. 1 overall pick in June says he's happy to be playing for a team that will give him more responsibility early in his career.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The newest Minnesota Timberwolves are pitching in to help the Lynx push toward another championship.  Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, Zach LaVine and Thaddeus Young have purchased a total of 500 tickets for Game 2 of the Western Conference finals against the Phoenix Mercury on Sunday. The upper level tickets will be available for free to those who call the Lynx ticket office.

     The first 250 fans who call the Lynx ticket office at 612-673-8400 starting at 8 am local time today can claim two tickets.  The Lynx open the highly anticipated series on Friday in Phoenix.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph is on track to play in the season opener, less than a month after he was shot in the leg.
 
     Joseph spoke publicly Tuesday for the first time since a stray bullet during an Aug. 9 nightclub disturbance struck him in the left calf. Joseph has been wearing a protective sleeve over the muscle and working out on the side, but he said he'll be ready to practice at full speed next week. The Vikings play Sept. 7 at St. Louis.
 
     The final exhibition game is Thursday at Tennessee, but Joseph will be held out of that.  The 25-year-old Joseph signed with Vikings this season as a free agent.

     UNDATED (AP) - Alex Gordon allowed the Kansas City Royals to keep their 1  1/2-game lead over Detroit in the American League Central.  Gordon launched a two-run, walkoff homer in the ninth to complete the Royals' 2-1 triumph over Minnesota. The Royals were held to just three hits before Alcides Escobar led off the ninth with a single and scored on Gordon's 16th round-tripper of the season.  Wade Davis improved to 7-2 with a 0.78 ERA by working a perfect ninth after Danny Duffy held the Twins to a run and four hits in 6 2/3 innings.
 
     The Tigers kept pace while ending the New York Yankees' five-game winning streak. Rick Porcello picked up his career-high 15th win by allowing two runs and nine hits in eight innings of Detroit's 5-2 downing of New York.

     Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Angels have regained sole possession of the AL West lead following their rout of Miami and Oakland's loss in Houston.  Efren Navarro and Albert Pujols laced a two-run single while the Angels put together a five-run fifth to beat the Marlins 8-2. Efren Navarro also had two RBIs to support Matt Shoemaker, who is 13-4 after limiting the Marlins to two hits in seven scoreless innings.
 
     The Astros beat Oakland 4-2 on Chris Carter's three-run blast in the bottom of the eighth. The Astros rallied against Luke Gregerson after Jason Hammel held them to a run and three hits in seven innings.

     - Seattle was a 5-0 winner over Texas behind James Paxton, who yielded just four hits in 6 2/3 innings. Robinson Cano put the Mariners ahead with a first-inning homer and Endy Chavez added a two-run double as Seattle stayed a half-game ahead of Detroit for the final AL wild-card berth.

     - Washington still leads the NL East by 7 1/2 games over Atlanta after both teams lost. The Nats erased a 3-0 deficit before Carlos Ruiz hit a sacrifice in the bottom of the eighth to give the Phillies a 4-3 triumph over Washington in Philadelphia. Freddy Galvis and Darin Ruf homered for the Philies, but the Nationals eventually tied the game on Asdrubal Cabrera's solo shot in the top of the eighth.
 
     - The Braves failed to cut their deficit as Juan Lagares hit a two-run homer, scored twice and made several impressive catches in center fielder to lead the Mets' 3-2 triumph over Atlanta. Dillon Gee allowed two runs and six hits over 6 2/3 innings to help the Mets send the Braves to their third consecutive loss.

     - Johnny Cueto failed to become the majors' first 16-game winner of the season as Arismendy Alcantara hit a two-run homer and Anthony Rizzo added a solo blast in the Chicago Cubs' fourth straight win, 3-0 against Cincinnati.

     - Cleveland beat the Chicago White Sox 8-6 on Zach Walters' two-run homer in the top of the 10th. Jason Kipnis and Mike Aviles each had two hits and an RBI for the Indians, who remain 5 1/2 games off the AL Central lead following their third straight win.
 
     - Mike Napoli belted a three-run homer and Allen Craig added a two-run shot while Boston erupted for seven runs in the 11th to beat Toronto 11-7. Dustin Pedroia capped his four-RBI game by delivering the tiebreaking, two-run single in the 11th.

     UNDATED (AP) - Detroit Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez said he was feeling better after experiencing pain in his right pectoral on Monday.

     Also in the majors:

     - And the Chicago Cubs have reinstated shortstop Starlin Castro from the bereavement list in time to start tonight's game against the Reds in Cincinnati.

     INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) - Kevin Love says Cleveland Cavaliers fans shouldn't worry about the opt-out clause in his contract.  The newly-acquired forward can become a free agent next summer after just one season with the Cavs. However, he said at a news conference on Tuesday that he intends to stay with LeBron James and the team.
 
     Love never made the playoffs during his six seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves, who acquired Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett in the deal that sent Love to Cleveland. Wiggins and Bennett are the last two No. 1 picks in the NBA draft.

The deal comes less than 24 hours after the Bucs met with Richie Incognito to try to determine if one of the central figures in the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal might be an answer to their problems at guard.  General Manager Jason Licht did not rule out the possibility of signing Incognito after getting Mankins.
 
     Elsewhere around NFL training camps:
 
     - The Denver Broncos have found a replacement for suspended kicker Matt Prater, acquiring rookie Brandon McManus from the New York Giants for a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2015.

Prater was banished for the first four games of the season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
 
     - New York Giants left guard Geoff Schwartz has a dislocated right big toe and will be in a walking boot for a week to 10 days.
