Sports Minute: Here is the latest California sports news from The Associated Press
DALLAS (AP) - Cody Eakin and Alex Goligoski scored on Dallas' first two shots in the third period and the Stars beat the top-seeded Anaheim Ducks 4-2 yesterday in Game 4 of the best-of-seven series that is all even now. Even without captain Ryan Getzlaf, a surprise late scratch with an upper-body injury, the Ducks jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period.
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Zack Greinke outpitched Cole Hamels with seven strong innings, Hanley Ramirez homered and Yasiel Puig drove in two runs for the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 5-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies last night. Greinke (4-0) allowed two runs and five hits while striking out 11 and walking one batter intentionally.
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Jean Segura hit a three-run homer, and the Milwaukee Brewers broke out of an offensive slumber at home to support Kyle Lohse in a 5-2 win over the San Diego Padres last night. Segura homered for a 4-1 lead in the second. Khris Davis added a solo shot for the Brewers, who have won five of six and are a big league-best 16-6.
DENVER (AP) - Hector Sanchez hit two of San Francisco's six homers, including a grand slam in the 11th inning yesterday that gave the Giants a wild 12-10 victory over the Colorado Rockies. With the Giants on the verge of being swept in a three-game series at Coors Field for the first time in 12 years, Sanchez drove a fastball from Chad Bettis (0-1) into the bushes behind center field.
