     DETROIT (AP) - Eduardo Nunez hit a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning and the Minnesota Twins rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.  The Twins took advantage of poor defense by the Tigers in the late innings. Minnesota scored three runs in the eighth, spoiling another fine start by Detroit rookie Robbie Ray.
 
     The Tigers led 3-1 with two outs in the eighth when Josmil Pinto singled to left field off Joba Chamberlain with runners on first and second. One run scored on the hit, but the ball skipped past left fielder Rajai Davis for an error that tied the game and allowed Pinto to reach second.  Nunez followed with his single to make it 4-3.
 
     Jared Burton won in relief. Glen Perkins got four outs for his 10th save in 11 chances.

     - Will Venable slammed a solo homer and Chris Denorfia hit a two-run single before San Diego held on for a 5-4 win over Miami. Robbie Erlin struck out seven over 6 1/3 shutout innings, but the Padres gave up four runs in the ninth before completing a three-game sweep.
 
     - The New York Mets erased a 4-1 deficit into the bottom of the ninth before beating Philadelphia 5-4 on Ruben Tejada's single in the 11th. Daniel Murphy's two-run homer sparked the comeback and helped the Mets end a five-game losing streak.
 
     - Allen Craig and Yadier Molina each had two hits and an RBI as St. Louis nipped Pittsburgh 6-5. The Cardinals scored three unearned runs in the first inning following an error by Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez.

     LOS ANGELES (AP) - Clippers owner Donald Sterling has apologized for the racist comments that got him banned from the NBA for life, saying it was a "terrible mistake."  Sterling told CNN's Anderson Cooper, in excerpts posted from an interview taped Sunday and set to air Monday, that he is not a racist.  Sterling said years of good behavior as an owner should count toward his future and he's hoping his fellow NBA owners will give him a second chance.
 
     Meanwhile, his estranged wife, Shelley says she would fight to keep her share of the Los Angeles Clippers. The NBA says otherwise.  The NBA says if Donald Sterling's ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers is terminated, so is Shelly Sterling's.  Shelley Sterling told ABC News she didn't know why she should be punished for what her husband did and she plans to divorce him.
