    MINNEAPOLIS - After a day off yesterday, the Minnesota Twins are back at it today with the first of two inter-league games in Milwaukee. 

    The Twins finished a 10-game homestand on Sunday and didn't fare well against some of the top teams in the league. Minnesota lost three of four to Cleveland and prior to that dropped two of three to Atlanta.

     Martin Perez (8-5, 4.80 ERA) will take the mound for the Twins tonight, following an 11-hit, seven-run, six-inning performance in his last turn that put his spot in the rotation in question. Chase Anderson (5-2, 3.70 ERA) pitches for the Brewers. 


     UNDATED (AP) - A person familiar with the deal says right-handed reliever Greg Holland and the Washington Nationals have an agreement in principle on a minor league contract. The deal is pending the completion of a successful physical exam. The 33-year-old Holland was designated for assignment by the Arizona Diamondbacks last week. He appeared in 24 games for Washington last season.

     In other baseball news:

     - The Philadelphia Phillies have hired former manager Charlie Manuel to replace John Mallee as hitting coach. Manuel was working as senior adviser to the general manager. He will assume the position for the remainder of the season.

     - Former major league pitcher Curt Schilling says he's thinking about running for Congress in Arizona. He declined to say which district he'd run in and wrote in an email to the Arizona Republic that "the illegal immigration issue is not a joke." Schilling won the World Series with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Boston Red Sox. He later was fired from his role as an ESPN commentator for controversial online comments.



     UNDATED (AP) - Antonio Brown has returned to the Oakland Raiders training camp facility after missing time to see a specialist for his frostbitten feet and losing a grievance with the NFL over the use of a helmet. Brown walked on the field surrounded by cameras late in practice and greeted his teammates for the first time since leaving camp about a week ago. Coach Jon Gruden says he expects him to be ready to play the season opener Sept. 9 against Denver.

     Elsewhere in the NFL:

     - The Chicago Bears have waived wide receiver Emanuel Hall. Hall, who played in college at Missouri, was signed as an undrafted free agent in April but had sports hernia surgery in the spring. He missed organized team activities and minicamp and had been unable to practice much at training camp.



     UNDATED (AP) - Coco Gauff has received a wild-card entry for the U.S. Open's main draw. It will be the second Grand Slam tournament for the 15-year-old from Florida. She made a magical run to the fourth round at Wimbledon last month after getting a wild card into the qualifying rounds there.

     Gauff became the youngest player to qualify for Wimbledon and upset five-time champion Venus Williams in the first round but wound up losing to eventual title winner Simona Halep.

     The U.S. Tennis Association announced its wild-cards today. The year's last major tennis tournament begins August 26th.



     NEW YORK (AP) - The WNBA has suspended Mercury center Brittney Griner three games for her role in a fight in the Dallas-Phoenix game last Saturday that resulted in six players getting ejected. With 6:25 left in the fourth quarter, Griner and Anigwe got tangled up in the lane and a scuffle ensued. Griner had to be restrained by an official at midcourt, where she was still trying to get at Dallas players.

     Dallas' Kristine Anigwe was suspended two games for instigating the initial altercation with Griner and taking an open-handed swing at her. Wings' forward Kayla Thornton also was suspended two games for her role in the scuffle. And, Phoenix's Diana Taurasi and Dallas' Kaela Davis were suspended a game apiece for leaving the bench area during the altercation.
