     SEATTLE (AP) - Hisashi Iwakuma struck out a season-high 10 in seven strong innings, Mike Zunino and Michael Saunders hit solo home runs, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Minnesota Twins 2-0 on Monday night.
 
     Iwakuma has not allowed an earned run to the Twins in five career starts, which spans 33 2-3 innings. After allowing a combined 10 runs in two consecutive starts to close out June, Iwakuma has given up just one in his two outings in July.
 
     Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his American League-leading 26th save in 28 chances.
 
     Kevin Correia was credited for the loss despite allowing only five hits in seven innings. It was the fourth time in the last five starts that the right-hander has left the game with no run support, and the sixth time this season the Twins have not been able to score a run for him.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     SEATTLE (AP) - Twins right-hander Ricky Nolasco is being sent back to Minnesota because of a sore right elbow.  Nolasco is scheduled to have his elbow examined today and undergo an MRI.
 
     Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said Nolasco met with manager Ron Gardenhire on Monday before the series opener against the Seattle Mariners and told him he had felt pain all season.  Antony said Nolasco believed he could pitch through the soreness, but he couldn't get loose on Sunday and then allowed six runs in two innings against the New York Yankees.
 
     Nolasco, who agreed to a four-year contract with the Twins before this season, is 5-7 with a 5.90 ERA in 18 starts this season.
 
     Gardenhire said the Twins won't make adjustments to the rotation until after Nolasco's exam. He added that the club has options at the major and minor league levels.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins will send top pitching prospect Alex Meyer to the Futures Game at the All-Star events at Target Field next week. Meyer will replace fellow right-hander and Triple-A Rochester teammate Trevor May at the exhibition Sunday. May has been out for more than a week with a strained right calf muscle.

     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Wild say digital ticketing will replace paper tickets for season ticket holder starting in the upcoming season.  Wild chief operating officer Matt Majka says the time is right to make the move. Majka says fans have become accustomed to using online and mobile technology.
 
     Season ticket holders will receive a smart card, the size of a credit card, that contains all of their account information. The card will be scanned when the fan enters Xcel Energy Center.  The team says digital ticketing includes fast, convenient online forwarding, with no forwarding fees. Fans can't grab the wrong game tickets by mistake, or hand over the wrong tickets to friends and family.  The Wild say digital ticketing also will help reduce printing and paper waste.

     UNDATED (AP)- A federal judge has given preliminary approval to a landmark deal that would compensate thousands of former NFL players for concussion-related claims.
 
     The ruling by U.S. District Judge Anita Brody in Philadelphia came about two weeks after the NFL agreed to remove a $675 million cap on damages. Brody had previously questioned whether that would be enough money to pay all claims.
 
     More than 4,500 former players have filed suit, some accusing the league of fraud for its handling of concussions. They include former Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Dorsett and Super Bowl-winning Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon, who suffers from dementia.
 
     The settlement is designed to last at least 65 years and give $1 million or more to retirees who develop Lou Gehrig's disease and other profound neurological problems.

     NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Knicks are taking on a familiar look, if you are a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Knicks have announced the hiring of Kurt Rambis as associate head coach where he is reunited former L.A. teammate and now New York head coach Derek Fisher. They join Phil Jackson, who worked with both men in L.A. and is now in charge of running the Knicks.  Fisher played eight seasons for the Lakers while Rambis spent 12 seasons with the team, including seven under Jackson when he was L.A.'s coach.
 
     In other NBA news:
 
     - The Miami Heat have announced they intend to sign forwards Danny Granger and Josh McRoberts when the NBA's moratorium on deals being formally struck ends later this week. Granger has agreed to sign a two-year deal, while McRoberts has agreed to a four-year contract that could be worth about $23 million.
 
     - Lionel Hollins has been introduced as the new coach of the Brooklyn Nets. After leading Memphis to the NBA Western Conference finals in 2012-13 he was dismissed by the club and failed to land another job. In his time with the Grizzlies he won a franchise record 214 games. Unlike his predecessor, Jason Kidd, who asked for more control of the basketball operations, Hollins says he is content to just be coach.
 
     - A person familiar with the deal says veteran forward Channing Frye has agreed to a four-year, $32 million deal with the Orlando Magic.
