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

Posted: Updated:

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Jay Bruce had a triple and a double among his three hits, Austin Jackson singled four times and the incredible Cleveland Indians rolled on by beating the Los Angeles Angels 6-3 for their 25th victory in 26 games. Roberto Perez added a solo home run for the AL Central champions to support a strong outing by Mike Clevinger.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Rhys Hoskins had four RBIs, including a tiebreaking, three-run double off Pedro Baez in seventh inning that led the Philadelphia Phillies over the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2. Los Angeles' magic number to clinch its fifth straight division title is two. The Dodgers have lost three consecutive games and 19 of 24.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) - Jared Goff knows what to expect Thursday. The Los Angeles Rams quarterback played at Levi's Stadium in college against future San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman DeForest Buckner. Goff also faced fellow first-round picks Arik Armstead and Solomon Thomas during his college career. And the former California star isn't caught up in his return to the Bay Area and another chance to play in front of familiar faces.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - UCLA has struggled to run the ball and stop Stanford's rushing attack during its nine-game losing streak against the Cardinal. The Bruins are hoping to reverse both trends on Saturday and get coach Jim Mora his first win in the rivalry.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco 49ers have taken possession 21 times in two games this season and been stopped short of the end zone each time. That's not quite what they expected when they hired Kyle Shanahan as head coach after he led the league's most productive offense a year ago against Atlanta.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Charlie Blackmon had a two-run double in the second inning for his first career 200-hit season, but the contending Colorado Rockies couldn't hold their early lead and lost 4-3 to the San Francisco Giants. Hunter Pence hit a game-ending sacrifice fly with Colorado playing a five-man infield. The Rockies' slim cushion over the Brewers for the second NL wild card dropped to one game after Milwaukee won at Pittsburgh.

DETROIT (AP) - Jed Lowrie hit a go-ahead grand slam against Alex Wilson, and the Oakland Athletics overcame a four-run deficit to beat the Detroit Tigers 9-8. Detroit trailed 3-0 in the third inning, then took an 8-4 lead into the seventh. Oakland's Matt Olson homered for the fifth straight game and has 15 in his last 21 games. Alex Presley, Nicholas Castellanos and Ian Kinsler went deep for Detroit.

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The Padres' Travis Wood went from being a punching bag to landing a few blows himself. Wood beat the Diamondbacks 6-2 with an outing that looked nothing like his recent ones. Wood was down and nearly out of the rotation after a pair of sour turns. In his last two starts, he was punished for 16 runs (15 earned), 16 hits and two walks over 4 1/3 innings.
