TWINS-TIGERS
 
DETROIT (AP) — Jonathan Schoop homered and drove in four runs as the Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 4-0 Tuesday night to split a doubleheader. Tigers starter Joey Wentz, making his second major league appearance, allowed just one hit in four innings, but left with a shoulder strain while pitching to the first batter of the fifth inning. Reliever Wily Peralta (2-0) got the win with two scoreless innings of relief. Five Tigers pitchers combined on the three-hit shutout. Minnesota starter Cole Sands (0-1) allowed four runs on five hits and four walks in four innings.
 
Max Kepler had three hits and drove in three runs and Gary Sanchez hit a three-run homer to help the Twins to an 8-2 win in the first game. Devin Smeltzer (2-0) was the winner in the first game, giving up two runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings. Rony Garcia (0-1) allowed six runs and seven hits in five innings. Minnesota took a 2-0 lead in the first on a two-run double by Trevor Larnach, and the Twins added four more runs in the third.
 
In the fourth game of a five-game series tonight, RHP Bailey Ober (1-1, 3.25) starts for the Twins against LHP Tarik Skubal (3-2, 2.44). Detroit has won two of the first three games.

NHL PLAYOFFS – AVS-OILERS
 
DENVER (AP) — In a frenetic game that featured 14 goals, Colorado and Edmonton players came away with the same thought — defense can’t be so optional. J.T. Compher scored twice, Cale Makar had a goal and two assists and the Avalanche held off the Oilers 8-6 on Tuesday night in a fast-paced, no-lead-felt-safe Game 1 of the Western Conference final. The game is tied for 10th highest-scoring playoff game in NHL history, according to the league. Not only were there goals galore, but both teams needed to use backup goaltenders in a frenzied second period: Mike Smith was pulled after giving up six goals and Darcy Kuemper left with an upper-body injury (coach Jared Bednar didn’t have an update after the game). Edmonton and Colorado scored six times over a 6:43 span — nearly a goal a minute. And the opening two periods saw 11 total goals. At times, it looked more like an All-Star Game rather than a conference final. Game 2 is Thursday.
