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

Posted: Updated:

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Klay Thompson flashed back to a night he left the arena from a forgettable performance against the Nuggets with his uniform still on he was that mad. It used to be he struggled to shake off a bad night or even a bad start to a game. Now, he just keeps shooting. Whenever he feels like it, from wherever. No conscious. A hand or two in his face, no matter.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Klay Thompson hit nine 3-pointers and scored 35 points, the Warriors held James Harden down in the second half, and Golden State rallied from an early 17-point deficit to stave off elimination with a 115-86 victory over the Houston Rockets to force a deciding Game 7 in the Western Conference finals. Stephen Curry added 29 points and five 3s on a night Chris Paul sat out sidelined by a strained right hamstring.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Christian Villanueva homered twice and Jose Pirela hit the go-ahead single in the seventh inning, leading the San Diego Padres to a 7-5 comeback victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. It marked the second multi-homer game of Villanueva's career, and second this season. Freddy Galvis and A.J. Ellis also homered for the Padres, who won for the second time in their last five games. Craig Stammen got five outs in relief for the victory and Brad Hand earned his 16th save.

NEW YORK (AP) - Mike Trout homered and doubled three times during his first five-hit game in the majors, and the Los Angeles Angels quickly erased an early deficit in beating the New York Yankees 11-4. Playing not far from his southern New Jersey hometown, Trout went deep for the third straight game to tie Boston's Mookie Betts for the big league lead with 17 home runs. The two-time MVP drove in four runs and set career bests with four extra-base hits and 11 total bases.

CHICAGO (AP) - Brandon Crawford hit a two-run homer, Brandon Belt drove in two runs and the San Francisco Giants beat the Chicago Cubs 5-4 to stop a three-game slide. Andrew McCutchen had two hits and drove in a run as San Francisco won for the first time on an eight-game trip. Chris Stratton shook off a shaky start and lasted five innings for his third straight win.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - San Francisco Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner was sharp in his first rehabilitation start since breaking the pinkie on his pitching hand in March. He struck out eight while throwing 47 pitches over 3 2/3 hitless innings for Triple-A Sacramento. Bumgarner threw 31 strikes and walked one while facing 12 hitters against the Albuquerque Isotopes. The appearance came almost two months to the day of having surgery to insert three pins into his pinkie.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Clayton Kershaw has pitched a simulated game for the Los Angeles Dodgers, raising the possibility that he could return to their rotation next week. The three-time NL Cy Young Award winner has been on the disabled list nearly a month with left biceps tendinitis. Kershaw says he thought he'd be ready to pitch in five days. Manager Dave Roberts watched the simulated game and says he wants to see how Kershaw feels before determining when and where he'll pitch next.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Daniel Mengden pitched a two-hitter for his second career shutout, and the Oakland Athletics beat the slumping Arizona Diamondbacks 3-0. Mengden struck out five and walked none. Socrates Brito singled in the second and David Peralta singled in the sixth for Arizona's only hits.
