GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Packers have signed receiver Jordy Nelson to a contract extension, securing their top player at a position that has had several high-profile departures in recent years. Terms of the contract were not announced by the team, and NFL.com reported it was a four-year, $39 million deal with an $11.5 million signing bonus. Nelson was a second-round pick in 2008 who posted career-highs of 85 catches and 1,314 yards last season.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Chris Sale tied a season high with 12 strikeouts in eight dominant innings and the Chicago White Sox beat Minnesota 7-0 on Saturday night for their third straight win over the Twins. Twins starter Logan Darnell (0-1) struggled in his first major league start, giving up seven runs and 11 hits while striking out seven in five innings.

UNDATED. (AP) - Kevin Love has withdrawn from this summer's USA Basketball roster because of his uncertain NBA status, leaving the Americans without one of their most experienced international players. Love, who won gold medals at the 2012 Olympics and 2010 world championship and was one of the first players to commit to play this summer, told USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo that he would be unavailable for training camp that starts Monday. The Minnesota Timberwolves are considering trading Love and the Cleveland Cavaliers are trying to acquire the three-time All-Star to pair with LeBron James.
