     OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Jon Lester pitched a three-hitter for his fourth career shutout, and Oakland Athletics beat the Minnesota Twins 3-0 on Thursday night.  The All-Star left-hander struck out eight, walked two and only allowed two runners past first base in the 11th complete game of his career. He pitched out of two-out, bases-loaded jam in the sixth but was otherwise stellar.
 
     Lester was making second start since being acquired at the trade deadline as part of the blockbuster deal that sent Cuban slugger Yoenis Cespedes to the Boston Red Sox.
 
     Stephen Vogt homered and Derek Norris hit an RBI double to help Oakland become the first team in the majors to reach 70 wins.  A's manager Bob Melvin became the eighth active manager in the majors and 76th overall to reach 800 career victories.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Maya Moore scored 17 points and the Minnesota Lynx closed with an 11-0 run to beat the Chicago Sky 74-64 on Thursday night for their 11th straight victory.  Lindsay Whalen added 14 points for Minnesota, which trailed 64-63 in the final two minutes.
 
     Allie Quigley led the Sky with 20 points. They opened the second half on a 9-0 run to take their first lead.
 
     Minnesota held Chicago to 24 first-half points, but the Sky rallied to threaten to hand the Lynx their second home loss of the season.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The University of Minnesota says it's working with the Minnesota Vikings to keep the Washington Redskins' nickname from being used when the two teams play on campus in November.
 
     University President Eric Kaler gave the assurances in a letter to U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum, a Democrat who has said using the name would violate school policies on equity and diversity.  The Vikings are playing home games at TCF Bank Stadium the next two seasons while their new stadium is being built.
 
     Vikings spokesman Lester Bagley says the organization is sensitive to the issue. He says the Vikings are obligated by the NFL to market the Nov. 2 game as they would any game, and the team will continue talking with university and Native American community leaders as the game nears.

     LOUISIVLLE, Ky. (AP) - Ryan Palmer, Lee Westwood and Kevin Chappell are the first-round co-leaders after the first round of the PGA Championship, the final major of the PGA Tour season. All shot 6-under 65s.  Palmer had the lead to himself at 7-under before a bogey on the par 3 eighth, which was his 17th hole, dropped him into the tie.
 
     The 41-year old Westwood has never won a major championship in an otherwise distinguished career.  He had nine birdies on the day for this best score ever in the PGA.  Chappell has yet to win on the PGA Tour in four seasons.
 
     British Open champ Rory McIlroy, Jim Furyk, Henrik Stenson and Edoardo Molinari each shot 66 and are lurking just one off the lead.  Tiger Woods struggled with his game and shot 74. Playing partner Phil Mickelson turned in a 2-under 69.  Defending champion Jason Dufner withdrew from the tournament after 10 holes due to neck pain.  He was 8-over.

     UNDATED (AP) - Caleb Joseph is on a hot streak to remember. The Baltimore catcher homered for the fourth consecutive game, Miguel Gonzalez won for the first time in three starts and the Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 2-1.  Joseph's drive matched an Orioles record for catchers. Ramon Hernandez in 2006 and Gus Triandos in 1959 also homered in four straight games.
 
     The Orioles won for the fourth time in five games and lead the AL East by five games over Toronto and the New York Yankees. It was the AL-best 35th road victory for Baltimore, which has won six consecutive series.
 
     Elsewhere:
 
     - The L.A. Dodgers blanked the Angels 7-0 to take three of four in the Freeway Series. Hyun-Jin Ryu won his 13th game. Hanley Ramirez and Adrian Gonzalez each drove in two.
 
     - Wily Peralta became the first 14-game winner in the majors this season pitching Milwaukee past the Giants 3-1.  Peralta earned his fifth straight victory to improve to 14-6.  He struck out a career-high nine in 6 2/3 innings.
 
     - St. Louis remained one game back of Milwaukee in the NL Central by beating Boston 5-2 as Adam Wainwright earned his 14th victory. Kolten Wong homered twice and went 3-for-4 for the Cards.
 
     - Bryce Harper's two-run, walk-off homer gave Washington a 5-3 win over the Mets in 13 innings. The win moved the Nationals a season-high 4 1/2 games in front of second-place Atlanta in the NL East. The Braves have lost eight in a row heading into a home weekend series against Washington.
 
     - Kyle Seager, Robinson Cano, Endy Chavez and Dustin Ackley homered in Seattle's 13-3 rout of the Chicago White Sox.
 
     - Shane Greene outpitched Rick Porcello in the Yankees 1-0 win over Detroit.  He pitched into the ninth inning, giving up five hits and walking three to go to 3-1. Porcello came up short in his attempt to become the first 14-game winner in the majors.  The Detroit starter gave up an RBI double to Stephen Drew in the fourth inning and fell to 13-6.
 
     - Cincinnati blanked Cleveland 4-0. Homer Bailey ended his streak of three straight losses to the Indians with seven shutout innings.
 
     - Edinson Volquez pitched one-hit ball for seven innings, Gregory Polanco drove in four runs and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Miami Marlins 7-2
 
     - Ryan Howard hit a grand slam, capping a five-run rally in the eighth inning that lifted the Philadelphia Phillies over the Houston Astros 6-5.
 
     - Kansas City topped Arizona 6-2. Jeremy Guthrie retired the final 19 batters in Kansas City's first complete game this season. He's 8-9.
 
     - Rookie Javier Baez hit two more homers and drove in four runs, leading the Chicago Cubs over the Colorado Rockies 6-2. The Cubs' 21-year-old prized prospect had an RBI single. Baez homered in his major league debut Tuesday, delivering a game-deciding shot in the 12th inning on the day he was promoted from the minors.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP)- The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired right-hander Roberto Hernandez from the Philadelphia Phillies in a trade for two players to be named later or cash considerations.
 
     The 33-year-old Hernandez is 6-8 with a 3.87 ERA in his first season with the Phillies, who signed him to a one-year, $4.5 million deal last December. He spent last year with Tampa Bay and his first seven major league seasons with Cleveland when he was known as Fausto Carmona.
 
     Hernandez has been a starter for most of his career. He's penciled in to start Friday night against Milwaukee.
 
     In other baseball news:
 
     - Miami Marlins pitcher Dan Jennings was hospitalized in Pittsburgh after being hit in the head by a line drive. Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Jennings' eyes were open and he was responding to questions from the medical staff while on the mound. Jennings was diagnosed with a concussion and was kept in a hospital overnight for observation.
 
     - Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie will be out until at least September with a left oblique strain, an injury that ended his return to the lineup after just three innings. Lawrie is batting .247 with 12 homers and 38 RBIs.
