Twohey left the team "to pursue other opportunities," the Ontario Hockey League club said Monday in a statement posted on its website. Assistant GM Roger Hunt will be the acting GM.

"Jeff has been a terrific general manager for the Oshawa Generals and I am grateful for his commitment to the Generals organization for the past two seasons," Generals owner Rocco Tullio said in a release. "Under Jeffs leadership, the Generals won their first Eastern Division title in 13 years and led the team to the Eastern Conference final for the first time since the 2007-2008 season." Hunt has been the teams assistant coach since 2010 and assistant GM since 2013. "This is a great opportunity for Roger and we look for him to keep the team as one of the top teams in the Ontario Hockey League," Tullio said. Flames Jerseys China .

The four-time world champs lead at 79.SAN FRANCISCO -- Mike Minor pitched three-hit ball into the seventh inning and Evan Gattis drove in a run with his first career triple as the Atlanta Braves beat the San Francisco Giants for the first time in five tries this season, 5-0 on Tuesday night. Freddie Freeman, B.J Upton and Andrelton Simmons added RBI singles in a three-run sixth against Ryan Vogelsong (1-2) to help the Braves win for the fourth time in five games. That was more than enough support for Minor (1-2), winless in his previous eight starts dating to last season. He struck out six and walked two in 6 2-3 innings. Minor, who missed the first month this season with a sore left shoulder, pitched around a one-out double to Hunter Pence in the first inning and didnt allow another baserunner until Angel Pagans two-out walk in the sixth as he shut down a Giants lineup that hit eight homers in the first four meetings with the Braves. Minor gave up two of those in a 2-1 loss at home on May 2, but yielded nothing in the rematch, retiring 16 batters in a row at one point. That stretch ended when Pagan walked and went to third on Pences second double of the night. But Minor struck out Buster Posey to end the threat. Minor left with runners on first and second in the seventh. Ian Thomas struck out Brandon Crawford to escape the jaam. Stitched Flames Jerseys. Vogelsong was nearly as stingy early for the Giants, matching a career high with eight strikeouts and limiting the Braves to three hits and one run on Gattis triple in the first five innings. Vogelsong then ran into trouble in the sixth when he was hurt by a botched tag play at home plate by Posey. The big inning started when Jason Heyward singled and aggressively advanced to second on a flyout. Freeman followed with a single to right and Pences throw home easily beat Heyward -- but he managed to elude the tag attempt by Posey, turning a sure out into a second run. That play loomed even larger when Upton and Simmons hit two-out RBI singles that made it 4-0. The Braves added another run in the seventh after a replay review overturned a call of an inning-ending double play. Manager Fredi Gonzalez challenged the call and Freeman was ruled safe at first after replays showed reliever David Huff never touched first base, allowing Tyler Pastornicky to score. NOTES: Atlanta is 14-0 when scoring first. ... The Braves batted their pitcher eighth for the eighth time this season. ... Hector Sanchez started at first base for San Francisco for the first time in his career. ... Madison Bumgarner (4-3) will start the series finale for San Francisco against Julio Teheran (2-2) on Wednesday. ' ' '
