CHICAGO (AP) — Avisail Garcia doubled home the go-ahead run in the 10th inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cubs 6-5, handing Chicago its first two-game losing streak this season. The Cubs were the only team in the majors that hadn’t dropped back-to-back games before two straight losses to Milwaukee at Wrigley Field. Chicago had won three of four and 12 of 15. Garcia doubled to deep right off Jeremy Jeffress to score automatic runner Christian Yelich from second base to start the 10th. Luis Urías reached on an infield single for an additional run.

UNDATED (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks head into the playoffs seeking to regain the form that enabled them to earn the NBA’s best record. Milwaukee has gone 3-5 since the NBA resumed play after a 4 ½-month layoff. The Bucks have dropped eight of their last 11 games after racing to a 53-9 start. The Bucks  will try to return to their championship-contending form when they open the Eastern Conference playoffs Tuesday against the Orlando Magic at Disney’s Wide World of Sports. Milwaukee won its four regular-season matchups with Orlando by an average margin of 17 points.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Kenny Clark has agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension. Clark’s agent Doug Hendrickson confirmed that the 2016 first-round draft pick from UCLA reached a deal worth $70 million with a $25 million signing bonus. ESPN first reported the deal. Clark has emerged as the Packers’ top defensive lineman. He recorded six sacks for the second straight season last year and also produced 89 tackles. He has 16½ sacks over his four-year career.

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 26 shots and the Vegas Golden Knights held off the Chicago Blackhawks 2-1 to take a 3-0 lead in their first round series. William Karlsson and Patrick Brown scored for the Golden Knights. Vegas is a perfect 6-0 in the postseason, having also won all three of its round-robin games in the preliminary round to take the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. With Games 3 and 4 on back-to-back nights, Vegas coach Peter DeBoer opted to start Fleury instead of Robin Lehner, who is 4-0 with 2.39 goals-against average this postseason. Olli Maatta scored in the third period and Corey Crawford had 24 saves for Chicago.

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Si Woo Kim had a hole in one on the way to a 62 and a two-shot lead over Doc Redman and Rob Oppenheim through three rounds of the PGA’s Wyndham Championship. Kim is at 18-under after 54 holes. He made history three years ago when at 21 he became the youngest winner of The Players Championship. Now, he’s seeking his first victory since — and playing strongly wherever he tees it up. Redman had a 63, while Oppenheim set a career low on tour with a 62 in second at 16-under.

UNDATED (AP) — The New Orleans Pelicans have fired coach Alvin Gentry after the club missed the playoffs for the fourth time in his five seasons. The Pelicans went 30-42 this season. They finished with just two victories in their final eight games despite the presence of top overall draft choice Zion Williamson and first-time All-Star Brandon Ingram. New Orleans’ lone playoff appearance under Gentry came in the 2017-18 season.
