Sports Minute: Here is the latest California sports news from The Associated Press

Posted: Updated:

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Paxton Lynch engineered three scoring drives in his bid for the starting quarterback job and Denver forced four turnovers in the first half in the Broncos' 33-14 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night. Trevor Siemian came off the bench and threw a TD pass after starting Denver's preseason opener a week ago. C.J. Anderson rushed for 24 yards and a score while Brandon McManus kicked four field goals for the Broncos.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Derek Carr threw two touchdown passes for Oakland in his first game since breaking his leg last season and Jared Goff led three scoring drives for the Rams as both first-team offenses were sharp during Los Angeles' 24-21 exhibition victory over Oakland. Marshawn Lynch returned to the field for the first time since retiring following the 2015 season and once again declined to stand for the national anthem.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Pinch-hitter Ty Kelly had a grand slam, Rhys Hoskins hit a three-run homer and the Philadelphia Phillies snapped a six-game losing streak, beating the San Francisco Giants 12-9. Down 12-4, the Giants scored five times in the ninth inning and brought the tying run to the plate before Hector Neris struck out Carlos Moncrief for his 14th save.

BALTIMORE (AP) - Mike Trout and Luis Valbuena each hit two home runs off Kevin Gausman, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 for their eighth win in 10 games. Trout homered in the first and third innings, and Valbuena connected in the second and fourth to give Los Angeles a 5-1 lead.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat on the bench while the anthem was played before Oakland's game against the Los Angeles Rams. Lynch also sat last week and told coach Jack Del Rio he has done that throughout his career. Lynch has not publicly said why he is sitting for the anthem.

DETROIT (AP) - Adrian Gonzalez's seventh-inning single broke a scoreless tie and the Los Angeles Dodgers went on to beat the Detroit Tigers 3-0. The win was the Dodgers' sixth in a row and 21st in 24 games. Detroit has lost six in a row and 12 of 14.

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Yangervis Solarte hit a two-run home run off Stephen Strasburg in the first inning of the right-hander's first start in almost a month and the San Diego Padres beat the Washington Nationals 3-1. Strasburg retired the first two batters he faced before allowing a single to Jose Pirela and then the homer to the switch-hitting Solarte, who drove a 96-mph fastball to right for his 13th.

DETROIT (AP) - Yu Darvish has been placed on the 10-day disabled list after just three starts for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The team said Darvish has lower back tightness, which he first noticed after a recent start in Arizona and mentioned again after making his Dodger Stadium debut.
