     TORONTO (AP) - Josh Willingham hit a two-run home run, Phil Hughes struck out a season-high nine to win in Toronto for the first time in almost three years and the Minnesota Twins beat the Blue Jays 7-2 this afternoon.
 
     Kendrys Morales had three of Minnesota's season-high 16 hits as the Twins improved to 5-2 against Toronto. Morales is 6 for 13 with three RBIs since making his Twins debut on Monday.
 
     Hughes (7-2) allowed seven hits and walked none in seven shutout innings for his first win at Rogers Centre since July 17, 2011, when he played for the New York Yankees. The right-hander is 7-1 with a 2.27 ERA in his past 10 starts.
 
     Willingham hit a two-out homer off rookie Marcus Stroman in the first as the Twins took a 2-0 lead in the opening inning for the third straight game.  Trever Plouffe made it 3-0 with a sacrifice fly in the sixth.

     TORONTO (AP) - Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier left today's game against the Blue Jays in the fourth inning with a sore lower back and was replaced by Eduardo Escobar.
 
     Dozier came in batting .245 with a team-high 14 home runs and 33 RBIs. He collided with shortstop Eduardo Nunez while chasing Erik Kratz's bloop double to shallow center in the second inning.  Before his departure, Dozier had played every inning of every game this season.

     NEW YORK (AP) - Ron Gardenhire will be in the dugout with the AL All-Stars at his home stadium.  The Minnesota manager was chosen along with Cleveland's Terry Francona as coaches to join AL manager John Farrell of Boston in the July 15th All-Star game at Target Field.
 
     For the NL, manager Mike Matheny of St. Louis chose Clint Hurdle of Pittsburgh and Fredi Gonzalez of Atlanta as his coaching staff.
 
     Francona has himself managed the AL team before - in 2005 and 2008. In that second one, Farrell served as his pitching coach for the game. Gardenhire, who has managed the Twins since 2002, has been an AL coach in 2003 and 2007.

     NEW YORK (AP) - The Los Angeles Kings are hoping to put an emphatic end to the NHL season tonight in New York.  They can become the first team to sweep a Stanley Cup Finals since 1998 when they take on the Rangers.
 
     Should LA pull it off, it would be a crowning end to a remarkable post-season that saw the Kings fall into an 0-3 hole against San Jose in the first round, then become the fourth team to overcome that deficit in NHL history.  
 
     And that could be a bit of motivation for the Rangers who have been taken to the brink of elimination with two overtime losses and a shutout loss in Game 3 despite outshooting the Kings 32-15.
 
     New York has never come back to win a series it trailed 3-0, but the Rangers rallied to knock out Pittsburgh in the second round this year after trailing 3-1.
