TWINS-BREWERS
 
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Josh Donaldson’s two-run home run in the first inning stood up for well-traveled starter Andrew Albers as the Minnesota Twins beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-0. Albers threw 5 1/3 scoreless innings in his first Major League start in four seasons. He limited the first-place Brewers to three hits and one walk. The 35-year-old Canadian left-hander was promoted last week from Triple-A as yet another reinforcement for a depleted Twins pitching staff. The Brewers had their NL Central lead over Cincinnati shaved to 7 1/2 games. Their baseball-best road record fell to 42-22.

TWINS-BUXTON
 
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minnesota Twins center fielder Byron Buxton has been reinstated from the injured list. He missed 55 games while his broken left pinky finger healed. The oft-sidelined star played in only three games after returning June 19 from a strained right hip that kept him out for 39 games. The Twins also announced right-hander Kenta Maeda will have season-ending elbow surgery next week in Texas. Maeda was pulled from his previous start six days ago with tightness in his forearm. The Tommy John ligament replacement procedure is one of multiple options under consideration.

VIKINGS PRE-SEASON FINALE
 
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Patrick Mahomes led the Chiefs to touchdowns on his only two chances with the ball as Kansas City beat the Minnesota Vikings 28-25. Mahomes was 8 of 9 for 117 yards and two scores in the AFC champions’ finale tune-up for the regular season. Vikings counterpart Kirk Cousins was just 5 of 7 for 57 yards in three series. Defensive ends Chris Jones and Frank Clark and running backs Clyde Edward-Helaire and Darrel Williams did not play for Kansas City due to illness or injury. It was 91 degrees at kickoff with a heat index of 96, though most of the field was at least shaded.

WILD-BENN
 
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – The Minnesota Wild have signed defenseman Jordie Benn to a one-year, $900,000 contract. Benn brings another veteran option to the Wild after an offseason of change on the blue line. The 34-year-old Benn had one goal, nine assists and a plus-7 rating over 39 games with the Vancouver Canucks and Winnipeg Jets last season. He played in three playoff games for the Jets. Benn has 24 goals, 103 assists, 670 hits and 908 blocked shots in 556 career NHL games, mostly with the Dallas Stars.

– Pinch-hitter Victor Reyes delivered a tiebreaking, inside-the-park home run in the eighth inning to give the Tigers a 2-1 win against the Blue Jays.

Detroit’s Matt Manning and Toronto’s Steven Matz both allowed one run over six innings.
 
– The Braves won a matchup of NL division leaders as Jorge Soler hit a go-ahead, three-run homer in the seventh inning of their 6-5 downing of the Giants. Joc Pederson made a leaping catch at the wall for the final out after Wilmer Flores led off the ninth with a homer to get San Francisco within a run.

– Josh Donaldson’s two-run home run in the first inning stood up as the Twins blanked the Brewers, 2-0. Andrew Albers threw 5 1/3 scoreless innings in his first Major League start in four seasons, limiting Milwaukee to three hits and one walk. The Brewers fell to 44-22 on the road and saw their lead in the NL Central trimmed to 7 1/2 games over Cincinnati.
 
– Wade Miley doubled home a run and pitched six-hit ball over seven innings of the Reds’ 6-0 shutout of the Marlins. Tyler Naquin was 3-for-4 to stretch his hitting streak to 16 games, the longest current run in the majors. Mike Moustakas also went deep and had an RBI double for the Reds, who continue to lead the Padres by two games for the second NL wild card.
 
– San Diego’s four-game skid is over after Joe Musgrove fired a three-hitter in a 5-0 shutout of the Angels. It was Musgrove’s second career complete game and first since tossing a no-hitter earlier this season. Jurickson Profar had an early two-run triple to back Musgrove, who is the lone Padres hurler to get through eight innings this season.
 
– The Cardinals posted a 4-3 win over the Pirates as Tommy Edman hit a two-run homer and a sacrifice fly. J.A. Happ allowed two runs and three hits over 5 2/3 innings. Jacob Stallings had three hits and Yoshi Tsutsugo poked an RBI triple for Pittsburgh.

Espino allowed three hits and walked none over five innings. Only two players got beyond first base against Espino and four relievers as New York fell for the 12th time in 14 games.
