MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee scored three runs on two misjudged balls in the outfield by Chris Heisey, and Wily Peralta pitched seven strong innings in the Brewers' 5-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night.
Ryan Braun hit a two-run double in the third on which Heisey took a couple of steps in before retreating as the high liner went over his head. The four-year veteran with 134 career starts in left field apparently lost Carlos Gomez's high fly ball to the warning track in the fourth inning that turned into an RBI ground-rule double that made it 4-0.
Peralta (11-6) allowed three hits, including Billy Hamilton's solo homer. Francisco Rodriguez threw a 1-2-3 ninth for his 29th save.
Cincinnati's Mat Latos (2-2) gave up four earned runs and eight hits in seven innings.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Josh Willingham's tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning sent the Minnesota Twins to a 4-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night.
Kurt Suzuki had a two-run double among his three hits, Trevor Plouffe hit an RBI double and the Twins beat the Indians at home for the first time in more than 11 months.
Suzuki, a first-time All-Star selection who was the catcher for the ninth inning of the American League's victory here at Target Field last week, posted his ninth three-hit game this season. He raised his batting average to .311 and is 25 for 63 in his last 17 games.
In another All-Star game reprise, Glen Perkins pitched a perfect ninth for his 23rd save in 26 chances.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Cleveland Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera left Monday night's game with the Minnesota Twins because of lower back spasms.
Cabrera played two innings before being taken out. There was no word from the team on exactly how he was injured.
Chris Dickerson pinch hit for Cabrera in the top of the third and hit an RBI single. He went to center field in the bottom of the inning with Mike Aviles shifting to shortstop. Cabrera struck out in his only at-bat against Twins starter Kris Johnson.
The 28-year-old Cabrera has played in 94 of 99 games this season.
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Standout defensive tackle Geno Atkins and starting cornerback Leon Hall are among nine players placed on the physically unable to perform list Monday by the Cincinnati Bengals.
Atkins missed seven games and the Bengals' one playoff game last season after undergoing surgery on his right knee. He was an All-Pro in 2012 and has made two Pro Bowls.
Atkins and Hall, who started only five times last season before tearing his Achilles tendon, are eligible to come off that list anytime during the preseason. They count against the team's 90-man roster limit.
Punter Kevin Huber also was placed on PUP, along with guard Clint Boling, linebacker Marquis Flowers, receivers Ryan Whalen and Colin Lockett, defensive tackles Devon Still and Zach Minter.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Los Angeles Clippers interim CEO Richard Parsons says coach Doc Rivers has told him he'll quit if Donald Sterling remains owner of the team. Parsons made the statement while testifying in a trial to determine whether Sterling's wife Shelly Sterling can sell the team for $2 billion to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.
The NBA has sought to force out Sterling since soon after racist statements emerged on recordings in April.
Rivers, who is black, has said he had heard from other Clippers business employees that they didn't think they would be able to work for Sterling under the circumstances.
Sterling has denied he is a racist from the witness stand and vows he'll never sell the team, claiming he is the victim of illegally recorded conversations that invaded his privacy.
CLEVELAND (AP) -- It's not clear as to how long Andrew Wiggins will be a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers but a person familiar with the negotiations says the Cavs will sign the No. 1 overall pick in the near future. Wiggins has been linked to a possible trade with Minnesota for All-Star forward Kevin Love. The person familiar with the talks says Wiggins will sign with Cleveland as early as Wednesday.
If the Cavs and Wiggins work out a deal, a trade for Love would not be able to be consummated for 30 days.
The Cavs and Timberwolves have had ongoing discussions about a trade for Love since before the draft. The Timberwolves have always insisted that Wiggins be involved in any package, a stipulation the Cavaliers have resisted.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The Golden State Warriors and swingman Brandon Rush have completed the deal they agreed to last week. The contract is for two years and about $2.5 million.
Rush was Golden State's top reserve and best perimeter defender during the 2011-12 season before tearing two ligaments in his left knee in the team's 2012-13 home opener. He was traded to Utah last summer as part of a salary-shedding move.
UNDATED (AP) -- Baseball could have two 13-game winners by the end of the night. In St. Louis this evening, the Cardinals are facing Tampa Bay, which has won its last five games, and toeing the rubber for the Cards is Adam Wainwright. He has won 12 of 16 decisions this season with an amazing 1.83 earned run average. Tonight's start is Wainwright's first since starting the All-Star game last Tuesday in Minneapolis. The Cardinals are percentage points back of Milwaukee for first-place in the National League Central with a record of 54-45. The Brewers are home this evening to Cincinnati.
The other 12-game winner in action tonight is Detroit's Rick Porcello. He is 12-5 with a 3.39 ERA and tonight is facing the Diamondbacks in Arizona. The 54-41 Tigers top the American League Central by 6 1/2 games over Cleveland.
Along with the Rays the Red Sox have won five straight as well and tonight they are playing the Jays in Toronto. The longest current losing streak is six as held by Colorado. The Rockies will attempt to snap the skid with a home game against Washington.
DENVER (AP) -- Major league batting leader Troy Tulowitzki has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by Colorado because of a left hip flexor strain. The move is retroactive to Sunday. Tulowitzki suffered the injury in a game against Pittsburgh Saturday.
The 29-year-old All-Star shortstop is hitting .340 and is third in the NL with 21 home runs.
NEW YORK (AP) -- The Yankees have acquired third baseman Chase Headley from the Padres in an attempt to add some offense to the line-up. New York sends infielder Yangervis Solarte and right-hander Rafael De Paula to San Diego.
The 30-year-old Headley can become a free agent at the end of the season. He's hitting .229 with seven homers and 32 RBIs but has a .339 average since July 4. Two years ago he was the National League RBI leader.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Seven former professional football players are challenging a tentative class action settlement of NFL concussion claims. Their appeal echoes their previous complaints that some players won't be fairly compensated under the settlement, which would cover nearly 20,000 retired players for 65 years.
Senior U.S. District Judge Anita Brody has granted preliminary approval pending a November fairness hearing. Her approval came after the NFL agreed to remove the $765 million cap to ensure the fund doesn't run out.
The group appealing the judge's decision includes 2008 Pro Bowl player Sean Morey, now Princeton University's sprint football coach.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) -- Forward Antoine Roussel (an-TWAHN' roo-SEHL') and the Dallas Stars have agreed to terms on a four-year contract. He played in 81 games last season and finished with 14 goals and 29 points. He also finished with 209 penalty minutes, making him the only player in the NHL with more than 25 points and 150 penalty minutes.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- The Ducks have signed defenseman Sami Vatanen (VAH'-tuh-nehn) to a two-year contract. As a rookie he had six goals, 15 assists and 22 penalty minutes in 48 games last season. He was part of the Finnish team that won the bronze medal at the Olympics.
