SEATTLE (AP) — Kendrys Morales knocked in three runs and Kyle Gibson pitched six shutout innings to lead the Minnesota Twins to an 8-1 rout of the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday night.
Chris Colabello hit a two-run double, Brian Dozier scored twice and the Twins put up eight runs in the first four innings to chase an ineffective Roenis Elias. The rookie lasted a career-low 3 1-3 innings, yielding seven runs — six earned — and seven hits with three walks.
Gibson allowed multiple baserunners in three innings and only retired the side in order once. But he worked around seven hits and a walk, rebounding from a rough outing against the New York Yankees.
He gave up six runs, five earned, and six hits in two innings of a 6-5 loss last Friday.

MRI set for Tanaka...Red Sox DFA Pierzynski
CLEVELAND (AP) — Yankees rookie sensation Masahiro Tanaka has been placed on the 15-day disabled list due to elbow inflammation and has returned to New York to have an MRI on his right arm.
The move comes a day after Tanaka allowed five runs and 10 hits — both career highs — in 6 2/3 innings of a loss Cleveland. The All-Star is 12-4 with a 2.51 ERA in 18 starts, but has lost three of his last four outings.
Boston Red Sox reliever Koji Uehara has been added to the AL roster to take Tanaka's place for Tuesday's All-Star Game.

Dodgers found partly responsible in fan beating
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A jury has found the Los Angeles Dodgers partly at fault in the beating of a Giants fan who suffered brain damage in the 2011 assault at Dodger Stadium. However, the jury absolved former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt on any responsibility.
The jury found damages of about $18 million but said the Dodgers were responsible for only a quarter of the sum. The rest of the responsibility was split between the two men who beat fan Bryan Stow.
