DETROIT — Matt Shoemaker pitched five scoreless innings and Kyle Garlick, Jorge Polanco and Max Kepler homered to lift the Minnesota Twins to a 7-3 win over the Tigers on a rainy Friday night in Detroit. The game was delayed by rain for 35 minutes in the middle of the fourth and for 69 at the start of the seventh. The second delay came shortly after Willi Castro hit a three-run homer in the sixth to cut Detroit's deficit to one, but Minnesota added three more runs after play resumed. Miguel Cabrera had two hits for the Tigers, passing Babe Ruth on the career list. Shoemaker (2-3) allowed four hits and two walks in five innings. He struck out five. The right-hander returned for one more inning after the first delay and qualified for the win as a result. Tarik Skubal (0-5) allowed solo homers by Garlick and Polanco, but that was the only scoring against him. He yielded four hits and two walks in five innings, striking out eight. Detroit has lost eight of nine. Garlick led off the game with a homer to right, and Polanco started the second with his own solo shot to make it 2-0. Kepler added an RBI single in the sixth for Minnesota, and Andrelton Simmons followed with a run-scoring groundout. Polanco hit an RBI double in the seventh, and Kepler went deep in the eighth to make it 6-3. Miguel Sanó drove in a run in the ninth with a single. Cabrera came into the game on an 0-for-27 skid, but his second-inning single tied him with Ruth for 45th with his 2,873rd hit. Detroit put its first two hitters on base in the second, fourth and sixth — Cabrera reached in all three of those innings — but only in the sixth did the Tigers finally score on Castro's drive to left-centre. TRAINER'S ROOM Twins: C Mitch Garver left the game in the eighth as a precaution because of right shoulder inflammation. ...

Remnants of China's largest rocket launched last week are expected to plunge back through the atmosphere late Saturday or early Sunday, a U.S. federally funded space-focused research and development centre said. China's foreign ministry said on Friday that most debris from the rocket will be burned up on re-entry and is highly unlikely to cause any harm, after the U.S. military said that what it called an uncontrolled re-entry was being tracked by U.S. Space Command. In a tweet sent on Friday evening in the United States, the Aerospace Corporation said that the latest prediction for the re-entry of the Long March 5B rocket body by its Center for Orbital Reentry and Debris Studies (CORDS) was for eight hours on either side of 0419 GMT on Sunday.

OAKLAND, Calif. — Lefty Sean Manaea’s bid to pitch baseball’s second no-hitter of the night Friday ended on a leadoff double in the eighth inning by high school teammate Mike Brosseau, then Seth Brown hit a game-ending homer as the Oakland Athletics beat the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1 . Manaea and Brosseau played together at Andrean High in Merrillville, Indiana. Brown’s pinch-hit RBI single broke up a scoreless game in the bottom of the seventh then Tampa Bay chased Manaea. Brown delivered again facing Jeffrey Springs (2-1). Jake Diekman (2-0) recorded two outs in the ninth for the win. Aiming to follow fellow lefty Wade Miley’s gem for Cincinnati at Cleveland with his second career no-no, Manaea’s good fortune turned quickly — and he even lost his chance to get a decision out of it. Mike Zunino came through with tying single after Brosseau’s hit. Then, after Kevin Kiermaier’s called third stirke, Manaea gave way to reliever Yusemeiro Petit. Manaea, who threw a no-hitter April 21, 2018, against Boston, fist pumped after his strikeouts — 10 in all to match his career high — and did a little walk off the mound to gather himself between batters. He allowed just those two hits and the walk while throwing 81 pitches over 7 1/3 innings. The 29-year-old Manaea didn’t allow a baserunner until Randy Arozarena drew a leadoff walk in the seventh, when right fielder Stephen Piscotty later made a great catch on the warning track on Brandon Lowe’s sharp flyball. The quest by Manaea came two years to the day after teammate Mike Fiers pitched his second career no-hitter against the Reds in Oakland — and on Mother's Day 11 years ago A's left-hander Dallas Braden through a perfect game against Tampa Bay here at home. Manaea dazzled in a pitcher’s duel with Rich Hill, who didn’t allow a run in six innings against his former club before the A’s got to Andrew Kittredge. For the soft-spoken lefty, finishing this one might have helped ease the sting of losing the 2019 AL wild card game to the Rays in their last visit to the Oakland Coliseum. The hardest hit ball early came on Manuel Margot’s groundout to third in the fourth inning that travelled at 92 mph. “Let’s go, Manaea!” fans among the crowd of 5,058 yelled. This win certainly came at a good time for the defending AL West champion A’s after they were outscored 19-8 over their final two games by Toronto. The Rays were coming off a four-game sweep of the Angels and had their winning streak snapped at five, which matched their season-best unbeaten run. Hill went 9-3 in 14 starts for the A’s in 2016 before being dealt to the Dodgers at the trade deadline. Oakland faced a sixth straight left-handed starter and saw a southpaw for the eighth time in nine games and 11th in 14. This marked the fifth of seven meetings between the clubs in a two-week span after they split a four-game set in Tampa last week. TRAINER’S ROOM Rays: C Francisco Mejía was scratched because of discomfort in his left side but it wasn’t considered serious. “We anticipate right now it will be a very minor thing and he will be totally available to come off the bench tonight,” manager Kevin Cash said. Athletics: OF Chad Pinder (sprained left knee) ran the bases among his on-field baseball work and still could go on a rehab assignment as soon as this weekend. ... Ramón Laureano got a break from playing centre field to be the designated hitter.

BALTIMORE — Bobby Dalbec snapped an 0-for-27 skid with a single and a three-run homer, powering the Boston Red Sox to a 6-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night. Eduardo Rodriguez (5-0) allowed one run and seven hits with two strikeouts and three walks over five innings to help the Red Sox improve to a major league-best 20-13. Boston has won the last nine games Rodriguez has started against Baltimore, where he originally signed as an international free agent in January 2010 before being traded to the Red Sox for reliever Andrew Miller. Ryan Mountcastle had three hits, including his first homer since the Orloles' home opener on April 8. The game was delayed 1 hour, 38 minutes because of rain. Rafael Devers reached on a two-base error in the fourth inning by Matt Harvey, who couldn’t handle Pat Valaika’s throw. After stealing third, Devers scored on a single by Hunter Renfroe and Boston led 1-0. Dalbec’s three-run shot later that inning boosted the lead to 4-0. Harvey (3-2) snapped a three-game winning streak, allowing four runs — all unearned — and four hits, with three strikeouts and a walk over four innings. He managed to lower his ERA from 4.06 to 3.60. A single by Trey Mancini gave the Orioles their first run of the night in the fifth and Mountcastle cut the margin to 4-2 with a solo homer an inning later off Hirokazu Sawamura. Christian Vazquez and Marwin Gonzalez each had an RBI double to round out the scoring for Boston. QUIET NIGHT The last time Red Sox DH J.D. Martinez played at Camden Yards on April 11, he came off the COVID-19 list and hit three home runs. This time, Martinez went 1 for 5 with two strikeouts. TRAINER’S ROOM Red Sox: INF/OF Kiké Hernandez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain he sustained the previous night against the Tigers. In a corresponding move, Michael Chavis was recalled from Triple-A Worcester. “He can play first, second, third. We can put him in left field,” Boston manager Alex Cora said. Orioles: OF Anthony Santander (ankle) is jogging and is close to starting baseball activities. Santander has not played since April 20 but could be back in the lineup in one or two weeks. … RHP Mac Sceroler (right shoulder tendinitis) threw a side session Friday and did not have any setbacks. Sceroler, a Rule 5 pick, is 0-0 with a 7.36 ERA in two games. UP NEXT Red Sox: RHP Garrett Richards 1-2, 4.40 ERA) will make his third start against the Orioles this season. In the previous two games, he’s gone 0-1, allowing eight runs and 10 hits with six strikeouts and five walks over seven innings. Orioles: Manager Brandon Hyde Hyde did not name a starter for Saturday because of the uncertainty with rain in the forecast over the next two days. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Todd Karpovich, The Associated Press
Charlotte Hornets rookie LaMelo Ball says his wrist is still “a little sore,” but he’s posting big numbers
HOUSTON — Yuli Gurriel homered and tied a career high with four hits while driving in four runs to lead the Houston Astros to a 10-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night. Carlos Correa added a two-run homer and José Urquidy (3-2) pitched seven strong innings to help the Astros to their second consecutive victory after they lost their previous three games. Urquidy allowed four hits and two runs for his third straight win after opening the season by losing two decisions. “He gave up the two home runs, but other than that he was masterful," Astros manager Dusty Baker said. “He had an outstanding changeup. He has been using his changeup more and that keeps them off his fastball." Gurriel, who hit a two-run homer in the fifth, is having a great season and leads the Astros in hits (39) and RBIs (24). “I’m having a lot of fun," Gurriel said in Spanish through a translator. “I’m just glad I’m helping the team win. To be able to do that makes me feel really good." Bo Bichette put the Blue Jays up early with a solo homer to left field with one out in the first. Gurriel singled to start Houston’s second before Correa knocked a homer off the foul pole in left field to put the Astros up 2-1. The bases were loaded with two outs in the inning when Blue Jays starter Ross Stripling (0-2) walked Alex Bregman to make it 3-1. “The one thing that he did he kept us in the game with no command," Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo said of Stripling. “We have to keep him in there because we don’t have enough pitching to cover that many innings. He's got to give us more than that, but he deserves credit for keeping us in the game." There was one out in the third when Danny Jansen connected off Urquidy on his second home run this season to cut the lead to 3-2. The Astros were up by 3-2 with one out in the fifth when Gurriel hit his two-run shot off Tim Mayza. Stripling allowed six hits and three runs in 3 2/3 innings to remain winless in four starts with the Blue Jays this season. “These guys, they’re really good," Stripling said. “They command the zone well and they made me work." Gurriel, who also singled in the third, added an RBI single on a grounder in the seventh to push the lead to 6-2. Kyle Tucker’s RBI double later in the inning left Houston up 7-2. Gurriel drove in another run with a sacrifice fly in Houston's three-run eighth. Teoscar Hernández hit his third homer this season, a two-run shot that cut the lead to 10-4 in the ninth. TRAINER’S ROOM Blue Jays: Placed INF Joe Panik on the 10-day injured list with a strained left calf, retroactive to Thursday. 1B/DH Rowdy Tellez was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo to take his spot on the roster. ... Reliever Rafael Dolis left the game with right calf tightness and Montoyo said he will get an MRI on Saturday. Astros: Ace Justin Verlander said he’s progressing well in his recovery from Tommy John surgery in October, but it’s too soon to set a timetable for his return. ... LHP Framber Valdez, who fractured his left ring finger on March 2, threw live batting practice Friday for the first time since his injury. Manager Dusty Baker is pleased with his progress, but said it will still be several weeks before he’s ready to rejoin the team. WELCOME BACK Toronto outfielder George Springer received a warm welcome in his first trip to Houston since signing with the Blue Jays this off-season. Springer was with the team on Friday despite being on the injured list with a strained right quad. He was honoured before the game with a highlight video from his time with the Astros. As it ended he emerged from the dugout and tipped his hat to acknowledge the fans as they gave him a standing ovation. Springer was drafted by Houston in the first round in 2011 and spent the first seven years of his career with the team. He was named MVP of the 2017 World Series, won two Silver Slugger awards and was named to the All-Star team three times during his tenure with the Astros.

CLEVELAND — Wade Miley's 4-year-old son, Jeb, convinced him to put a temporary tattoo of the Hulk on his left forearm for his start against the Indians. He might need to get some permanent ink. "I got no muscles at all,” Miley said, smiling. “Maybe this gave me some strength.” Miley pitched like a super hero. The Cincinnati left-hander tossed baseball's second no-hitter in three days — and fourth already this season — leading the Reds to a 3-0 win Friday night over the Cleveland Indians, who were no-hit for the second time in a month. Miley (4-2) relied on breaking pitches and his experience of 11-plus major league seasons to baffle the Indians and throw Cincinnati's 17th no-hitter and first since Homer Bailey in 2013. “It's so far-fetched," the 34-year-old said. “I'm speechless. It still hasn't sunk in.” The easy-going Miley said he shook off an 83-minute rain delay to start the game by “goofing off” in the clubhouse and then followed Baltimore's John Means, who no-hit Seattle on Wednesday, to continue an early run of pitching gems in 2021 — quickly becoming the Year of the No-No. Miley’s joined the ’21 no-hitter club that was started by San Diego’s Joe Musgrove who threw the first in Padres’ history on April 9. Five days later, Chicago White Sox left-hander Carlos Rodón blanked the Indians, just missing a perfect game when he hit a batter in the ninth inning. Arizona’s Madison Bumgarner pitched a seven-inning no-hitter against Atlanta on April 25, but that one isn’t recognized as official because it didn’t go nine innings. This is the earliest in a calendar year there have been four no-hitters since 1917, when the fourth was thrown on May 5 and the fifth on May 6. It’s no wonder, with hitters entering Friday batting a record-low .233 this season. Miley was in control from the start. He coasted through five innings and carried a perfect game into the sixth, when he began to realize history could be made. One of the team's most popular players, Miley said the zeros on the scoreboard quickly made him an outcast in Cincinnati's dugout. “All my buddies left me,” he said with a laugh. “I don’t like that. I don’t like thinking about pitching. I want to talk about something else, talk about fishing, talk about hitting, There was nobody to talk to.” In the ninth, Miley retired pinch-hitter René Rivera on a lazy fly to right, struck out César Hernández and then retired Jordan Luplow on a grounder to third before he was mobbed by the Reds, who encircled him and danced across the grass. “I will never forget that,” Reds manager David Bell said. “I will never forget the look on Wade's face. I'm so glad he's enjoying every moment.” For their part, the Indians joined a dubious list by becoming the 16th team to be no-hit twice in the same season. It most recently happened to Seattle in 2019. Miley walked one and struck out eight on 114 pitches. “He kept us off balance,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. “He touched 90 (mph) once tonight, but he put on a clinic. I mean he cut the ball in on the righties, threw a changeup, threw a four-seamer in, he just went back and forth.” While Miley was blanking the Indians, Zach Plesac did the same to the Reds for eight innings before Cincinnati pushed three runs across in the ninth, helped by closer Emmanuel Clase's throwing error and a balk. The Reds got a pair of singles before Clase (2-1) fielded an infield tapper and threw wide of second base, allowing Nick Senzel to score from second. Then, with runners at the corners, Clase began his windup before stopping and tried to throw to second. Mike Moustakas, starting at first for the injured Joey Votto, followed with an RBI single to make it 3-0 and give Miley, who battled injuries last season after joining the Reds, more cushion — but also more time to think about it in the dugout. “That's probably when I felt it the most,” said the Louisianan, who got emotional afterward while thinking of family back home. “We scratched across three runs and it was going kind of slow. I didn't want to throw in the hallway because I was pretty tired, but at the same time I wanted to stay loose. But I was able to get three pretty quick ones.” Miley came in just 1-4 in eight career starts against the Indians, who were batting only .213 as a team. But Cleveland has been as hot as any team, riding a five-game winning streak and winning nine of 11 to take over first in the AL Central. Working quickly on a cool, damp night, Miley made fast work of the Indians. He coasted through five innings and didn't allow a baserunner until the sixth, when Cleveland's Amed Rosario reached on second baseman Senzel’s fielding error and then went to second on his throwing error. Miley also allowed a walk in the inning, but regrouped by getting Luplow on a liner to left. Franmil Reyes came the closest to getting a hit for the Indians, but his hard smash in the fifth inning was right at shortstop Kyle Farmer, who knocked it down and had plenty of time to throw out the slow-footed slugger. When it ended, the delighted Reds jumped in a circle around Miley, who has pitched for Houston, Milwaukee, Baltimore, Seattle, Boston and Arizona but feels at home in Cincinnati. “I don't know that I've ever been a part of anything where it was this joyful and truly authentically happy for one player,” Bell said. “What an incredible performance.” DOWN TIME The Indians will be without starting catcher Roberto Pérez for at least two months after he had surgery to fix a fractured ring finger. Pérez had three pins inserted into the finger, which he hurt in a game on April 14. The 32-year-old is one of baseball's best defensive catchers, and the team will miss him handling its strong pitching staff. HEY, ALBERT With the Reds missing Votto, and the Indians getting little production from their Yu Chang-Jake Bauers platoon at first base, Albert Pujols would seem like a possibility for either club. The slugger was released earlier this week by the Los Angeles Angels. However, Bell said Pujols “is not something we've discussed. We believe in the guys that we have.” And while Pujols would be an offensive upgrade, the Indians prefer to give their young players as many at-bats as possible. MEMORY LANE The Reds erupted in cheers while stretching before batting practice when Tyler Naquin's unforgettable inside-the-park homer in 2016 was shown on the stadium scoreboard. Naquin, who played five seasons in Cleveland before signing with Cincinnati this winter, punctuated his 360-foot dash with a headfirst slide into home plate and fist pump.

WASHINGTON — Lurking beneath Facebook's decision on whether to continue Donald Trump's suspension from its platform is a far more complex and consequential question: Do the protections carved out for companies when the internet was in its infancy 25 years ago make sense when some of them have become global powerhouses with almost unlimited reach? The companies have provided a powerful megaphone for Trump, other world leaders and billions of users to air their grievances, even ones that are false or damaging to someone's reputation, knowing that the platforms themselves were shielded from liability for content posted by users. Now that shield is getting a critical look in the current climate of hostility toward Big Tech and the social environment of political polarization, hate speech and violence against minorities. The debate is starting to take root in Congress, and the action this week by Facebook’s quasi-independent oversight board upholding the company’s suspension of Trump’s accounts could add momentum to that legislative effort. Under the 1996 Communications Decency Act, digital platform companies have legal protection both for content they carry and for removing postings they deem offensive. The shelter from lawsuits and prosecution applies to social media posts, uploaded videos, user reviews of restaurants or doctors, classified ads — or the doxing underworld of thousands of websites that profit from false and defamatory information on individuals. Section 230 of the law, which outlines the shield, was enacted when many of the most powerful social media companies didn’t even exist. It allowed companies like Facebook, Twitter and Google to grow into the behemoths they are today. Republicans accuse the social media platforms of suppressing conservative voices and giving a stage to foreign leaders branded as dictators, while Trump is barred. Democrats and civil rights groups decry the digital presence of far-right extremists and pin blame on the platforms for disseminating hate speech and stoking extremist violence. “For too long, social media platforms have hidden behind Section 230 protections to censor content that deviates from their beliefs,” Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi, the senior Republican on the Senate Commerce Committee, has said. On this, Trump and President Joe Biden apparently agree. Trump, while president, called for the repeal of Section 230, branding it “a serious threat to our national security and election integrity.” Biden said during his campaign that it “immediately should be revoked,” though he hasn’t spoken about the issue at length as president. Facebook, with a strong lobbying presence in Washington and a desire to have an input into any changes, has stepped out in favour of revisions to Section 230. Congress should update the 1996 law “to make sure it’s working as intended,” CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said. And he’s offered a specific suggestion: Congress could require internet platforms to gain legal protection only by proving that their systems for identifying illegal content are up to snuff. Some critics see a clever gambit in that, a requirement that could make it more difficult for smaller tech companies and startups to comply and would ultimately advantage Facebook over smaller competitors. Spokespeople for Twitter and Google declined to comment on the prospects for legislative action on Section 230 following the Facebook board ruling; a spokesperson for Menlo Park, California-based Facebook had no immediate comment. The decision announced by the Facebook oversight board upheld the suspension of Trump, an extremely rare move that was based on the company's conclusion that he incited violence leading to the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot. But the overseers told Facebook to specify how long the suspension would last, saying its “indefinite” ban on the former president was unreasonable. The ruling, which gives Facebook six months to comply, effectively postpones any possible Trump reinstatement and puts the onus for that decision squarely back on the company. Trump was permanently banned after the riot from Twitter, his favoured bullhorn. But it was Facebook that played an integral role in both of Trump’s campaigns, not just as a way to speak to his more than 32 million followers but also as a fundraising juggernaut driving small-dollar contributions through highly targeted ads. Critics of Facebook generally saw the oversight board’s ruling as positive. But some view the board as a distraction by Facebook to skirt its responsibility and to stave off action by Congress or the Biden administration. What must be addressed, critics insist, are the broader problems for society from the fearsome power, market dominance and underlying business model of Facebook and the other tech giants — harvesting data from platform users and making it available to online advertisers so they can pinpoint consumers to target. That’s where the debate over changes to Section 230 comes in, as a key area for new regulation of social media. Gautam Hans, a technology law and free-speech expert and professor at Vanderbilt University, said he finds the board to be “a bit of a sideshow from the larger policy and social questions that we have about these companies.” ___ Associated Press writer Jill Colvin in Washington contributed to this report. ___ Follow Marcy Gordon at https://Twitter.com/mgordonap Marcy Gordon, The Associated Press
