ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Devan Dubnyk made 17 saves and Jason Pominville and Zach Parise scored second-period goals and the Minnesota Wild earned a 3-0 victory over the St. Louis Blues in Game 3 of their Western Conference series on Monday.
     Mikael Granlund had two assists, Nino Niederreiter added an empty-netter and the Wild had the edge in every way, without being drawn into a single trip to the penalty box.
     St. Louis' Jake Allen stopped 21 shots, with the over-capacity crowd taunting him with chants of his last name throughout the game, but the Blues lost on the road in the playoffs for the ninth straight time.
     Game 4 is in Minnesota on Wednesday.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Kris Bryant turned his tiebreaking two-run double into a Little League homer with some heads-up baserunning, and the star rookie had three hits and three RBIs Monday night to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 5-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
     Bryant's double off the base of the left-center field fence in the seventh inning snapped a 1-all tie. He scored on the play when he advanced to third base on the throw home, and he raced across the plate when catcher Francisco Cervelli missed the throw for an error.
     Bryant, who tied the game with an RBI single in the fifth, is 6 for 14 (.429) with four RBIs in four games since his much-anticipated callup from Triple-A Iowa on Friday. He was a spring training sensation, hitting nine home runs in 40 at-bats for the Cubs.
     Jake Arrieta (2-1) allowed only one run and three hits in seven innings for the win while striking out seven and walking none.

CHICAGO (AP) - Jimmy Butler set a playoff career-high for the second straight game with 31 points, and the Chicago Bulls beat the Milwaukee Bucks 91-82 on Monday night to take a 2-0 lead in their first-round series.
     After scoring 25 points in Game 1, Butler trumped that with another terrific performance. He was at his best down the stretch, scoring 14 points in the fourth quarter.
     Chicago's Derrick Rose scored all of his 15 points in the second half after dominating in the series opener.
     Pau Gasol added 11 points and 16 rebounds and Mike Dunleavy Jr. scored 12 points as the third-seeded Bulls grabbed a commanding lead in the series.
     Game 3 is Thursday at Milwaukee.
     Khris Middleton led the sixth-seeded Bucks with 22 points, and Michael Carter-Williams scored 12.

Lester makes nifty play, but loses again as Padres top Cubs
     CHICAGO (AP) - Cubs newcomer Jon Lester made a nifty play with his glove but lost again as the San Diego Padres beat Chicago 5-2 Sunday.
     Lester (0-2), who signed a $155 million, six-year contract in the offseason as a free agent, has a 6.89 ERA after three starts.
     Lester gave up three runs and six hits in 5 1-3 innings. He alertly tossed his glove - with the ball stuck in the webbing - to first baseman Anthony Rizzo for an out after fielding Clint Barmes' comeback in the second.
     Will Middlebrooks and Yangervis Solarte hit two-run homers to help Andrew Cashner (1-2).
     Joaquin Benoit pitched a scoreless ninth for his first save. Padres closer Craig Kimbrel got the day off after pitching the previous two days.
     Kris Bryant, who made his major league debut on Friday, doubled and was hit by a pitch in going 1 for 3. He is 3 for 10 in three games for the Cubs.
