MINNEAPOLIS -- Danny Valencia sparked the decisive rally with a slump-stopping double. Coco Crisp gave Oakland the lead with a clutch single. Kendall Graveman gave the rotation a boost with a solid start.Still, the Athletics werent about to overlook setup man Ryan Dull and his record-setting relief.After Crisp snapped a seventh-inning tie with a two-run single, Dull got four key outs and the As ended a four-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Monday.Graveman pitched effectively into the seventh, allowing three hits and one run to a Twins team that totaled 24 hits and 22 runs in the previous two games. As starters allowed 21 runs in 20 1/3 innings over the previous four games.Graveman (4-6) left with two outs and two runners on, but Dull had no trouble picking him up by retiring Eduardo Nunez on a fielders choice thanks to a slick play by shortstop Marcus Semien.Dull then struck out two in a perfect eighth, lowering his ERA to 2.11 in 42 2/3 innings.Hes been amazing. Hes my favorite player on the team. I tell him every day, Valencia said.The rookie right-hander stretched his streak of inherited runners stranded to 36 since the start of the season. Thats the longest in major league history since the expansion era began in 1961, according to the As. Opponents have only one hit in 47 at-bats with runners in scoring position against Dull this year.Id buy him a drink, but I dont know if hes old enough, manager Bob Melvin said.The baby-faced Dull, drafted in the 32nd round in 2012 out of UNC Asheville, is 26.I think the most incredible part is he never shows any emotion, a grateful Graveman said.Dull, through a sheepish smile, said hes aware of his historic run but hasnt been tracking the numbers. So how do all those late-game, runners-on situations make him feel inside, despite the outward stoicism?The heart gets going sometimes, Dull said. Its just how I was taught to pitch. Dont show any emotion. Dont let the other team know they got to you. Just try and be as calm as you can out there.Stephen Vogts RBI single evened the score at 1 in the seventh against Twins starter Ricky Nolasco (3-7), and Crisp gave Oakland the lead four batters later. Eddie Rosarios two-out triple in the ninth was followed by a walk, but Ryan Madson recovered to earn his 16th save in 19 attempts.Valencias leadoff double in the seventh snapped his 0-for-17 streak, and he aggressively reached third on a grounder to shortstop when Nunezs high throw after a slight hesitation was a hair late. Valencia was called out on the field, but the replay challenge by Melvin brought a reversal after review.Good throw, and hes probably out by a fair margin, Twins manager Paul Molitor said.Valencias foot hit the base barely before Miguel Sanos tag on the back.Its one of those things if youre out it was the wrong read, but if youre safe everybodys happy, Valencia said.Suddenly, the roll that Nolasco was on screeched to a stop. Vogts single drove in Valencia, and Nolasco was removed for Taylor Rogers. With two outs, Crisp smacked a single up the middle on the fourth two-strike pitch he faced. Second baseman Brian Dozier made a diving attempt but just missed.Its just one of those days where one little hiccup was enough to change the course of the outcome of the game, Molitor said.TRAINERS ROOMOakland: With right-handed reliever Fernando Rodriguez out with a shoulder strain, the As have 11 players, including six pitchers, on the disabled list.Minnesota: Utility infielder Eduardo Escobars sore hamstring will likely keep him out until Thursday, but he is expected to avoid the DL.UP NEXTOakland rookie left-hander Sean Manaea (3-4, 5.40 ERA) takes the mound Tuesday in the middle game of the series, opposite Minnesota LHP Tommy Milone (0-2, 6.23). Manaea beat the Twins last month with eight strikeouts in six innings and only one run allowed. Milone, who won 31 games for the As over 2 1/2 seasons until he was acquired by the Twins in 2014, has not finished the fourth inning in two starts since arriving from Triple-A Rochester.

He said the defendants went "way over the line. LANDOVER, Md. -- As the chants of We want Dallas! We want Dallas! reverberated through the stadium, it was clear Washington Redskins fans already were looking forward to a Thanksgiving Day showdown against the NFC East-leading Cowboys.Redskins players were ready to think about whats ahead, too.A quick turnaround week, Redskins wideout DeSean Jackson said. Everybodys focused on this next game coming up. Its going to be another big one.Thursdays game at Dallas -- the current division leader hosting last seasons division champion -- would not have been as meaningful had Washington (6-3-1) not won for the sixth time in eight games by beating the Green Bay Packers 42-24 on Sunday night.Its great to be playing the way were playing, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins said, and its just a matter of doing it again this Thursday against a very good football team.Cousins was good as can be against Green Bay (4-6), going 21 of 30 for 375 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions, leading a Redskins offense that produced two 100-yard receivers (Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder) and a 100-yard rusher (Robert Kelley) in the same game for the first time in 17 years.It was Cousins 17th career 300-yard day, including the postseason, setting a team record.If we can get our guy back there playing like that, Jackson said, well be almost unstoppable.While Washington heads to Dallas off short rest, Green Bay takes a four-game losing streak into a Monday night game in Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles.We put ourselves in a tough spot, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. So weve got find a way to get a win next week and approach it one week at a time. Thats all weve got right now. Were in a tough stretch.Here are some things we learned from the Redskins victory over the Packers:KELLEY HITS MILESTONEUndrafted rookie Kelley hadnt had a 100-yard game since a 2010 high school playoff game until rolling up 137 with three TDs against Green Bay. Kelley continues to impress since passing Matt Jones -- the former starter who was inactive Sunday -- on the depth chart, and if he continues to put up 5.dddddddddddd yards a carry, opponents are in trouble. All those cutbacks I normally do, that wasnt happening tonight, and I think it was the o-line pushing me forward, making lines that I could go straight downhill with, Kelley said.NO WORDSGreen Bays secondary has a lot of work to do to get things right after putting up little resistance from start to finish. This was the fourth game in a row the Packers allowed at least 30 points. We have way too much talent in this locker room to be performing like that. But week in, week out, were doing it. Im speechless, safety Micah Hyde said. That was embarrassing. Gave up way too many big plays. Its frustrating.3 AND OUTRodgers will want to figure out how to get off to a better beginning against the Eagles after three-and-outs on each of Green Bays first three possessions at Washington. He went 1 for 5 for zero yards on that terrible trio of drives. While he eventually got going and wound up 26 of 41 for 351 yards with three TDs and no picks, Rodgers lamented that poor beginning. We didnt see that coming, he said.DEEP SHOTSWhile Rodgers acknowledged the wind affected some throws, Cousins said he has always believed that rotation beats wind and let it fly with completions of 70, 53 and 44 yards. He spun it, coach Jay Gruden said. Hes always been able to knife the ball through the wind. Really. Hes been a good quarterback in the rain and the wind. He just has really good release and a good feel for it.COOKS BACKPackers TE Jared Cook adds an extra dimension to the offense, making a team-high six catches for 105 yards and a score after sitting out the previous six games. Hes a tough matchup, Rodgers said. But Cook also fumbled in the fourth quarter.---AP Sports Writer Stephen Whyno contributed to this report.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich Cheap NFL Jerseys China Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
