     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Hector Noesi allowed three hits over 7 2-3 innings and Adam Eaton had three hits and two RBIs to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 5-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday night.
 
     Noesi gave up two runs, struck out three and walked one in an impressive performance. Alexei Ramirez added two hits and an RBI for Chicago and Jake Petricka went one inning to pick up his fifth save in six chances.
 
     Phil Hughes gave up two runs and four hits and struck out four for the Twins. But he left the game with a right shin contusion in the fourth inning when he was hit by a chopper off the bat of Adam Dunn. Hughes is listed as day-to-day.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Twins right-hander Phil Hughes left the game against the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night in the fourth inning after taking a comebacker off his right ankle.
 
     White Sox slugger Adam Dunn led off the fourth with a sharp chopper right back at Hughes. The starter had no chance to get out of the way before it plunked him on his ankle, and Hughes was immediately stunned by the impact.
 
     Dunn reached on an infield single and Hughes tried to walk it off. But after several minutes he crouched behind the mound and after talking to Twins trainers, Hughes limped off the field.
 
     Hughes has been the Twins' best starter this season. He entered the game with a 10-6 record and 4.06 ERA.
 
     Samuel Deduno replaced Hughes.

     MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings special teams coordinator Mike Priefer says he "went way below the bar" with his homophobic remark in front of players that led to his looming three-game suspension.
 
     The Vikings reported to training camp Thursday, and Priefer reiterated his apology for the anti-gay comment he made nearly two years ago to agitate then-punter Chris Kluwe. The words led to a six-month investigation commissioned by the Vikings in response to Kluwe's complaint, and the punishment for Priefer was announced last week.
 
     An unsatisfied Kluwe vowed a lawsuit, but his attorney has held off on filing it while continuing to talk with the team's lawyer.
 
     Priefer says he's sorry for the negative publicity he brought and the insensitivity he showed. He'll serve his suspension at the start of the regular season.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - Adrian Peterson has arrived at training camp with a different look: a ring on his finger.  The star running back reported Thursday with the rest of the Vikings to the Minnesota State University campus and confirmed he married his longtime girlfriend, Ashley Brown, just five days earlier. They got engaged July 4, and Peterson called that "a pretty exciting and explosive night."
 
     Peterson says the couple was planning on simply making the marriage official in court but decided on an intimate ceremony at their house. He says they tried to keep the news quiet, but the secret started to spill out with their presence in Minnesota for a charity gala the night after the wedding.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Miami Marlins finished taking three of four in Atlanta by rallying with a run in the ninth off Braves closer Craig Kimbrel in a 3-2 victory. The loss drops the Braves a game and a-half back of idle Washington in the NL East race.
 
     It's just the second in 10 series that Miami has won at Turner Field. Jarrod Saltalamacchia drove in the go-ahead run. Salty went 3-for-4 with two doubles. Kimbrel fell to 0-2.
 
     Marlins closer Steve Cishek earned his 24th save in 27 chances, retiring Freddie Freeman, Justin Upton and Jason Heyward on fly balls in the ninth.
 
     In action around the majors:
 
     - Nori Aoki singled home Lorenzo Cain in the 14th inning to lift the Kansas City Royals to a 2-1 marathon win over Cleveland. Indians starter Corey Kluber had a perfect game bid broken up with a one-out single in the seventh inning by Omar Infante.
 
     - AL East-leading Baltimore blanked Seattle 4-0. Wei-Yin Chen and Darren O'Day combined on the five-hit shutout. Chen improved to 11-3 after winning his fourth straight start. Delmon Young hit a three-run homer.
 
     - AL Central-leading Detroit held off the L.A. Angels 6-4. Max Scherzer improved to 12-3. He struck out 11 in seven innings. Nick Castellanos hit a two-run double in the sixth for the Tigers. That's his 24th double, which leads all rookies.
 
     - Brandon Moss hit a grand slam and the Oakland Athletics gave Jeff Samardzija got more run support than he has had all season in a 13-1 rout of the Houston Astros. Jed Lowrie had three hits and drove in a run for the A's, who have the best record in baseball at 63-38.
 
     - Marcus Stroman took a no-hitter into the seventh inning as Toronto shutout the Red Sox 8-0.  Shane Victorino's bloop single to lead off the seventh broke up the no-hit bid and was the only hit for Boston.  Juan Francisco had the big day at the plate with four runs batted in. Stroman struck out seven and walked two in seven innings of work. The rookie right-hander improved to 5-1 with a 1.54 ERA in seven home starts.
 
     - Brandon McCarthy delivered another strong pitching performance in the Yankees 4-2 win over Texas.  He gave up a run on four hits in six solid innings to improve to 2-0 with a 1.45 ERA since being acquired from Arizona earlier this month.  Fellow newcomer Chase Headley provided an RBI single in New York's sixth win in seven games.
 
     - Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy and Khalid Davis all homered in Milwaukee's 9-1 rout of the New York Mets. Matt Garza allowed two hits over eight innings to even his mark at 7-7. The Brewers have won four straight.
 
     - The light-hitting San Diego Padres rapped out 14 hits in their 13-3 rout of the Chicago Cubs. Rene Rivera had three hits, including a home run, and drove in three runs.
 
     - Chase Utley's tie-breaking single in the fifth inning proved to be the difference as Philadelphia edge San Francisco 2-1.  The win helped the Phillies avoid a four-game sweep at home.  The NL West-leading Giants completed a 5-2 road trip.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Seattle Mariners have reacquired first baseman Kendrys Morales in a trade with the Minnesota Twins for minor-league pitcher Stephen Pryor. Morales spent under seven weeks with the Twins, who signed him to boost their lineup as a designated hitter but used him often at first base with Joe Mauer (MAW'-ur) injured. Morales hit .234 in 39 games with 11 doubles, one home run and 18 RBIs.

     OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - Running back Ray Rice of the Ravens has received a two-game suspension from the NFL following his offseason arrest for domestic violence. Rice will miss the season opener against AFC North champion Cincinnati on Sept. 7 and the Sept. 11 game on Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Rice was arrested following an altercation in which he allegedly struck then-fiancee Janay Palmer.
 
     In other training camp news:
 
     - The Browns may soon learn whether they'll have Josh Gordon this season. The Pro Bowl wide receiver will have an appeal hearing with NFL officials in New York on Aug. 1. That's what a person with knowledge of the meeting told The Associated Press on Thursday. Gordon is facing a possible one-year ban for violating the league's substance abuse policy for at least the third time.
 
     - The threat of being cut hasn't served as a deterrent for suspended Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon. He was arrested in the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond on a complaint of marijuana possession.  Blackmon is suspended without pay indefinitely for repeated violations of the NFL's substance-abuse policy.
 
     - The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms on a new four-year contract with receiver Roddy White.  He holds the team records for career receptions and yards receiving. White battled ankle and hamstring injuries last season that kept him out of three games.
 
     - Former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, who is recovering from cancer treatments, will participate in the coin toss at the Hall of Fame game on Aug. 3. The Hall of Famer will represent Buffalo as an honorary captain, while former linebacker Harry Carson will be the New York Giants' honorary captain when the teams face off in the first NFL preseason game.

     CLEVELAND (AP) - Andrew Wiggins has an NBA home, for at least 30 days. The Cavaliers signed the No. 1 overall draft pick in a deal that prevents Wiggins from being traded for 30 days.
