    was one loss with a clear silver lining.Anibal Sanchez pitched effectively into
    the seventh inning before Minnesota finally broke through, and the Twins went on
    to beat the Tigers 6-2 on Tuesday night. Sanchez struck out 10 in only his
    second quality start of the season.He did an outstanding job -- thats probably
    as good an outing as hes had this season, Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. He
    did give up three runs, but two of those were after he was out of the game. He
    had really good fastball command, and thats big for him.Tommy Milone held
    Detroit scoreless until the ninth, and the Twins scored five runs in the
    seventh.Brian Dozier hit a two-run homer, Eduardo Nunez had three RBI and Milone
    (3-2) breezed through the Detroit lineup until the ninth, when the Tigers
    finally chased him from the game. Down 6-0 at the start of the inning, Detroit
    scored twice and actually had the tying run at the plate with one out when James
    McCann came up with the bases loaded against Brandon Kintzler.McCann and Jose
    Iglesias both struck out to end it.Milone allowed two runs and four hits in 8
    1/3 innings. The Tigers had only one hit before the ninth.This was Milones
    longest outing since July 5, 2013, when he also went 8 1/3 innings for Oakland
    against Kansas City.Sanchez (5-11) allowed three runs in six-plus innings, an
    encouraging sign for Detroit after he entered the game with a 6.75 ERA. Sanchez
    allowed seven hits and two walks. His line would have been even better, but the
    two runners on base when he was pulled in the seventh both came around to
    score.Sanchez received a warm ovation when he left the game, and he raised his
    glove to acknowledge the fans.They deserve more than Ive given them this year,
    he said. Hopefully, I can keep throwing the ball the way I did today, and we can
    get some wins.Nunez opened the scoring in the third with a sacrifice fly, and
    Sanchez and Milone were locked in an impressive duel until the Detroit
    right-hander allowed a walk and a single to start the seventh. Bruce Rondon came
    on in relief, and after a sacrifice bunt, Nunez poked a two-run single to
    center.Nunez stole second and scored on Joe Mauers two-out single. Dozier
    followed with his 16th homer of the season to make it 6-0.LAST-DITCH RALLYMilone
    allowed consecutive singles to Cameron Maybin, Miguel Cabrera and Victor
    Martinez to start the bottom of the ninth. He came out of the game after a
    sacrifice fly by Nick Castellanos made it 6-2.Kintzler came on and allowed a
    single by Justin Upton and an infield single by Mike Aviles before retiring
    McCann and Iglesias.To have a good night and have it come, the tying run up to
    the plate there, it gets your attention pretty fast, Twins manager Paul Molitor
    said. But he made some really quality pitches those last two hitters.TRAINERS
    ROOMTigers: Ausmus remained noncommittal about a timetable for LHP Daniel Norris
    (right oblique strain) to return. Norris made a rehab start Monday night, but
    there may not be any rush to bring him back after Sanchezs solid outing.UP
    NEXTTwins: RHP Ervin Santana (3-8) starts Wednesday in the finale of this
    three-game series. He has a 2.18 ERA in his last five starts.Tigers: RHP Justin
    Verlander (9-6) takes the mound, trying for his sixth win in seven decisions.

    . After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the
    postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night.
    The teams, and a few thousand fans, waited nearly four hours from the 7:05
    scheduled start time before an announcement was made shortly before 11 p.
    OAKLAND, Calif. -- Mark Buehrle calls it luck. Manager John Gibbons calls it
    anything but luck. Either way, theyll both take the outcome. Buehrle allowed
    five hits over seven innings, Jose Bautista and Emilio Bonifacio each homered
    and the Toronto Blue Jays ended Oaklands winning streak at four with a 5-0
    victory over the Athletics on Tuesday night. "The first three innings there were
    not too many quiet outs, Buehrle said. "Thats why its the whole luck thing. If
    I, in a different ballpark, I might be out of the game by then." Colby Rasmus
    also drove in a run and Edwin Encarnacion had two hits as Toronto improved to
    11-5 against the AL West. Derek Norris and Jed Lowrie each had two hits for the
    As, who acquired third baseman Alberto Callaspo from the Angels for infielder
    Grant Green in a trade announced during the game. Callaspo was hitting .253 with
    five home runs and 36 RBIs entering Tuesday. Buehrle (7-7) extended his
    scoreless innings streak to 20, did not walk a batter and struck out two. He
    retired 10 of the first 11 batters he faced five days after tossing a two-hit
    shutout against the Houston Astros. "He does everything right," Gibbons said.
    "Hes old reliable. Hes been around for a while and has had a tremendous career."
    Buehrle thought he had given up a home run to Coco Crisp, the games first
    batter. He also thought Josh Reddick got him in the third. Both balls died on
    the warning track. "You still have to make your pitches and hit location and it
    is still a lot of luck," said Buehrle, who has won at least 10 games in each of
    the last 12 years. "This is a tough place to hit at night." As manager Bob
    Melvin was impressed with Buehrles craftiness. "We just couldnt get anything
    going against Buehrle," Melvin said. "Even though he doesnt throw hard, he
    bullies the right-handers in with cutters and throws changeups, back-door
    breaking balls, and keeps you off balance." Dan Straily (6-5) lost his third
    straight decision, giving up five runs -- two eaarned -- on six
    hits.dddddddddddd. He walked two and struck out two. "You saw some two-strike
    hits, which means he probably wasnt as precise as he needs to be, especially
    when hes ahead," Melvin said. "Then he got some balls in the middle of the
    plate." Blue Jays right-hander Steve Delabar struck out the side in the eighth
    on nine pitches and leads all AL relievers with 70 strikeouts. "You cant get any
    more dominating than that," Gibbons said. "You dont see that too often."
    Bautistas two-out home run in the first put Toronto on the board. The Blue Jays
    added an unearned run in the fourth. Encarnacion, Adam Lind and Rasmus hit
    consecutive singles, with Yeonis Cespedes misplaying the ball in left field,
    allowing Encarnacion to score. Bonifacio led off the fifth with a home run.
    Jose Reyes walked and Maicer Izturis was safe when Adam Rosales threw wildly.
    Reyes scored on the play. Rasmus added an RBI single. The Blue Jays improved to
    11-21 since their major league-best 11-game winning streak. Darren Oliver
    pitched the ninth and went over the 1,900-inning mark for his career. "Hes had a
    marvelous career that speaks for itself," Gibbons said. "Hes a lot like Buehrle.
    They both keep answering the bell." NOTES: As INF Eric Sogard was credited with
    a single in the first inning of Monday nights game, with the error taken away
    from Edwin Encarnacion. It gives Sogard an eight-game hitting streak. ... As LHP
    Brett Anderson (foot) threw 57 pitches in a side session. Hell likely throw live
