Brian Bonnell allowed one run on five hits with three strikeouts and UNLV eliminated North Dakota State from the NCAA Corvallis regional with a 2-1 victory Saturday.....

     CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - Brian Bonnell allowed one run on five hits with three strikeouts and UNLV eliminated North Dakota State from the NCAA Corvallis regional with a 2-1 victory Saturday.   The Rebels got all the runs they needed in the top of the first on a two-run homer by Morgan Stotts that followed a leadoff single from TJ Stotts.
 
     Bonnell and the UNLV defense took the game over from there. After giving up a run in the bottom of the first, Bonnell settled in and let his defense go to work as the Rebels turned four double plays through seven innings.  UNLV closer Jonathan Torres worked the final two innings for his ninth save.
 
     The only run for NDSU (25-26) came on a sacrifice by Kyle Kleinendorst in the bottom of the first inning.   Parker Trewin (7-3) allowed two runs and four hits over seven and one third innings.

     NEW YORK (AP) - Phil Hughes pitched eight poised innings in his return to New York and wound up a winner when the Minnesota Twins rallied past the Yankees 7-2 Sunday behind big hits from Josh Willingham and Brian Dozier in a six-run ninth.

     Eduardo Nunez, also let go by the Yankees, lined a two-run double on Matt Daley's first pitch. Oswaldo Arcia added a two-run single off Matt Thornton to make it 7-2, all but sealing Minnesota's second victory in the three-game series.
 
     Hughes held his former team to three hits - all in a row to begin the fourth - and retired his final 15 batters during his sixth straight win.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - No matter where Kevin Love goes on vacation this summer, Timberwolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders says he expects the All-Star will be playing in Minnesota next season.
 
     Saunders spoke to reporters after a workout of draft prospects on Sunday. It was also a day after pictures surfaced of Love spending time in Boston, which touched off speculation that he was scouting out the town in case he was traded there this summer.
 
     The Celtics are one of a number of teams that figure to have interest in Love, who can opt out of his contract after next season. But Saunders says he "expects Kevin Love will be playing for us next year" and joked that he doesn't "dictate where guys go on vacation."

     CHICAGO (AP) - There will be no repeat for the Chicago Blackhawks.  Alec Martinez scored on a tip-in 5:47 into overtime to give the Los Angeles Kings a 5-4 triumph over the Blackhawks in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals at Chicago. The Kings fell behind three times in the game before advancing to the Stanley Cup finals for the second time in three years.

Patrick Sharp added two goals, each one putting Chicago back on top. But the Kings forced overtime on Marian Gaboriak's 12th goal of the postseason, beating Corey Crawford with 7:17 remaining in regulation.
 
     Justin Williams and Tyler Toffoli each had a goal and an assist for the Kings. Jonathan Quick made five of his 37 saves in OT and blanked the Hawks after Sharp made it 4-3 late in the second period.

     DOVER, Del. (AP) - Jimmie Johnson took the checkered flag in the 400-lap Sprint Cup race in Dover, Del., finishing in front of pole-sitter Brad Keselowski and Matt Kenseth. Johnson now has nine wins at the Dover track. He followed last week's victory in the Coca-Cola 600 with another sensational run in a race red-flagged for 22 minutes because of a pothole in the concrete track.  Johnson led 272 laps and won consecutive races for the 13th time.
