Matt Garza took a shutout into the seventh inning and Mark Reynolds hit a two-run homer, sending the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Monday night.....

     MILWAUKEE (AP) - Matt Garza took a shutout into the seventh inning and Mark Reynolds hit a two-run homer, sending the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Monday night.
 
     Garza scattered six hits over 6 1-3 scoreless innings against the team that brought him to the big leagues in 2006. The right-hander, signed to a $50 million, four-year deal as a free agent in the offseason, struck out eight and walked two for his first win since May 5.
 
     Kyle Gibson allowed four runs and six hits in six innings. Gibson has won just one of his last eight starts after winning his first three.
 
     The Brewers took a 2-0 lead in the fourth on consecutive RBI singles by Jonathan Lucroy and Carlos Gomez. Reynolds followed Scooter Gennett's leadoff double in the fifth with his team-leading 13th home run to make it 4-0.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Lynx guard Lindsay Whalen has been named Western Conference Player of the Week.  The award is Whalen's first of the season and sixth of her career. Last week Lynx teammate Maya Moore won the season's first Player of the Week award.
 
     Whalen opened the week with a season-high 22 points, including a key jumper in the final minutes of a Memorial Day win against the Chicago Sky. She also had a team-leading four assists as Minnesota handed Chicago its first loss of the season.
 
     Whalen added 19 points, pulled down five rebounds and handed out three assists as the Lynx beat San Antonio at Target Center on May 30. She capped the week with a double-double at San Antonio, posting 14 points and 10 assists in an 87-79 win.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have claimed cornerback Julian Posey off waivers from the Cleveland Browns.  Posey appeared in five games for the Browns in 2013 and had six tackles and a sack.
 
     After going through training camp with the Miami Dolphins in 2013, Posey was signed by the Browns to their practice squad on Sept. 2, 2013. He appeared in two games for the Dolphins in 2012.
 
     Posey originally was signed by the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent in 2011 and spent 15 weeks of the 2011 season on the Jets practice squad.  The Vikings also waived cornerback Kip Edwards on Monday.

     NEW YORK (AP) - Adrian Peterson has helped launch an educational program for people with severe allergies, something that affected the Minnesota Vikings' running back before his MVP season.
 
     Peterson had a strong allergic reaction to shellfish in training camp two years ago, even though he'd been eating it for 27 years. The reaction, called anaphylaxis, caused facial swelling and breathing problems. His trainer, however, was familiar with such symptoms and had the equipment to deal with them.
 
     Now, Peterson is encouraging everyone to take steps in dealing with severe allergies. He has teamed with the pharmaceutical company Mylar Specialty on the project.  As part of the campaign, three youngsters who have such health issues can win a trip to Minnesota's training camp this summer.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Boston Red Sox were trying to become the first team to win eight straight games immediately after a double-digit losing streak, but they were stopped by one of their former prospects.

     Boston didn't score until Xander Bogaerts hit a two-run homer in the eighth off Bryan Shaw.  Lonnie Chisenhall hit a two-run single in the first inning of the Indians' fourth straight win.
 
     Also in the majors:
 
     - Clayton Kershaw fanned nine and allowed two runs and just four hits in eight innings of the Dodgers' 5-2 win over the Chicago White Sox in Los Angeles. Justin Turner hit a tiebreaking, two-run single in a five-run sixth after Jose Abreu smacked a two-run homer in his first game since coming off the White Sox's disabled list.
 
     - Jordy Mercer was hitting .199 before going 4-for-5 with a solo homer, two RBIs and four runs scored in Pittsburgh's 10-3 mauling of the Padres in San Diego. Neil Walker had three hits and three RBIs to back Charlie Morton, who struck out nine while allowing two runs and just three hits in five innings.
 
     - Felix Hernandez is 8-1 after allowing two runs in seven innings of Seattle's 10-2 pounding of the New York Yankees. Kyle Seager was 4-for-5 with a three-run homer and three runs scored, while Michael Saunders added a solo shot and three RBIs.
 
     - Randy Wolf picked up his first victory since 2012 by working six innings of Miami's 3-1 win over Tampa Bay. Wolf allowed a run and three hits as the Marlins dropped the Rays to 0-7 on their eight-game road trip.
 
     - Mark Reynolds belted a two-run homer and Jonathan Lucroy added a solo blast and two RBIs as Milwaukee whipped Minnesota 6-2. Matt Garza struck out eight and held the Twins to six hits in 6 1/3 scoreless innings.
 
     - Wilmer Flores crushed a grand slam in the ninth inning and finished with a career-high six RBIs as the New York Mets ripped the Phillies 11-2. David Wright and Curtis Granderson drove in two runs apiece for the Mets, who won four times in the five-game series at Philadelphia.
 
     - Danny Duffy worked six innings of one-hit ball and Alex Gordon led off a three-run seventh with a home run as Kansas City earned a 6-0 win over the Cardinals in St. Louis. Shelby Miller had a two-hit shutout until Gordon's blast sparked a string of four-straight hits for the Royals.

     UNDATED (AP) - Chicago's Joakim Noah and Indiana's Paul George received the most votes on this year's NBA all-defensive team, released Monday.
 
     Less than two months after a landslide victory in balloting for the league's defensive player of the year, Noah was the only player to receive more than 100 first-team votes and earn more than 200 points for the team. Noah received 105 of 123 possible votes, while George had 65 votes. The rest of the first team consisted of Clippers guard Chris Paul, Oklahoma City forward Serge Ibaka and Golden State swingman Andre Iguodala.  It's the second consecutive year Noah was chosen to the first team.
 
     Four-time league MVP LeBron James and Indiana's Roy Hibbert were both on the second team.
