OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Athletics are surging after struggling mightily at the start. The Minnesota Twins are reeling yet celebrating finally getting back on the diamond.

Matt Olson hit a grand slam, Mitch Moreland homered twice to back Sean Manaea's shutout, and Jesus Luzardo followed with his own Game 2 gem as Oakland swept a doubleheader against the depleted Twins, 7-0 and 1-0 on Tuesday to run their winning streak to 10 games.

"We're on a wave," Luzardo said, quoting the A's latest winning catchphrase, "and we're just riding it."


Nats star Soto to IL for shoulder strain

WASHINGTON (AP) Washington Nationals right fielder Juan Soto went on the 10-day injured list with a strained left shoulder on Tuesday, the latest setback for the 2019 World Series champions.

"We thought, `Hey, we're not going to take any chances with him," Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. "We'll try to get him right as quick as possible."


Urias Ks 11 as Dodgers beat M's 1-0

SEATTLE (AP) Julio Urias enjoyed this trip to Seattle and performance against the Mariners way more than the last time he was on the same mound.

Urias threw seven dominant innings of one-hit ball, striking out a career-high 11 and leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 1-0 win on Tuesday.


Rodon again tops Tribe, Abreu hits 2 HRs

CLEVELAND (AP) Carlos Rodon was far from perfect, and that was perfectly fine with him.

Rodon followed up his no-hitter - and near perfect game - last week against Cleveland by hanging on for five innings and Jose Abreu homered twice, leading the Chicago White Sox to an 8-5 victory on Tuesday night.


Yankees beat Braves to stop 5-game skid

NEW YORK (AP) The Yankees ended their skid not with an offensive breakout but with key runs that involved no contact.

Atlanta Braves reliever Nate Jones threw a tiebreaking wild pitch with slumping Clint Frazier at the plate in the eighth inning and forced in a run with a four-pitch walk to Mike Ford, giving the Yankees an unusual 3-1 victory Tuesday night that stopped a five-game losing streak.


Ohtani, Trout, Pujols help Angels win

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Any time Shohei Ohtani takes the mound for the Los Angeles Angels, it's a must-see experience.

On Tuesday night, the Japanese right-hander had a four-inning outing for the ages that could only be described as effectively wild.


Rays bash 3 HRs to rout Royals 14-7

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Brandon Lowe, Austin Meadows and Mike Zunino homered and the Tampa Bay Rays pounded out 17 hits in a 14-7 rout of the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night.

Meadows, Randy Arozarena and Joey Wendle had three hits each, and Manual Margot and Yoshi Tsutsugo had three RBIs apiece as the Rays won their fifth straight. Tampa Bay entered the game hitting .220 as a team, just 23rd in the majors.


Burnes Ks 10 as Brewers blank Padres

SAN DIEGO (AP) Corbin Burnes struck out 10 in six spotless innings, extending his incredible start to the season, and the Milwaukee Brewers blanked the short-handed San Diego Padres 6-0 on Tuesday night.

After four starts this year, Burnes has an unimaginable 40 strikeouts and no walks. He was already the only pitcher since 1900 to whiff 30 batters without issuing a free pass through his first three starts of a season.


Twins' Kepler sidelined by COVID

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Minnesota Twins right fielder Max Kepler is among the club's positive cases for the coronavirus.

Manager Rocco Baldelli announced Kepler's absence with COVID-19 ahead of a doubleheader Tuesday against the Athletics. The scheduled opener of the series Monday was postponed, as were the Twins' final two games against the Angels in Anaheim over the weekend, because of the outbreak on the team.
