ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Adolis Garcia's first major league homer, a two-run shot in the 10th inning, gave the Texas Rangers a 6-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night. Garcia drove a 1-2 pitch from Cody Reed (0-1) the other way into the right-field stands. Nick Solak and Charlie Culberson also homered for the Rangers, who have won three straight following a four-game losing streak. Josh Sborz (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning, and Ian Kennedy finished up for his third save in three opportunities. Mike Brosseau homered for the Rays, who went 3 for 13 with runners in scoring position and stranded 12 overall. Solak had a solo homer in the second and an RBI single off Andrew Kittredge to drive in the final run charged to Rays starter Rich Hill in the fifth. Culberson’s second homer of the series, a two-run shot off Hill in the fourth, gave the Rangers a short-lived 3-1 lead. The Rays erased deficits with Austin Meadows' RBI single in the third, Brosseau's two-run homer in the fourth and without getting a hit in the seventh, when Brett Phillips walked and scored the run that made it 4-all with help from a pair of throwing errors. The Rangers looked as though they might be on the verge of getting through the seventh unscathed when catcher Jose Trevino's errant pickoff throw to second base continued into centre field, allowing Phillips to take off for third. When centre fielder Leody Taveras threw wildly past third as well, Phillips raced home to tie it. Texas starter Jordan Lyles allowed three runs and five hits in 5 1/3 innings. Hill went 4 1/3 innings for Tampa Bay, yielding four runs and seven hits. TRAINER’S ROOM Rangers: With OF/DH David Dahl getting a night off, Trevino batted second — ahead of Joey Gallo and Garcia — even though he’s not a prototypical No. 2 hitter. Texas manager Chris Woodward explained: “Why wouldn’t I? ... I felt like I put a guy up there that’s obviously having the highest-quality at-bats and is one of our best hitters right now.” Rays: SS Willy Adames and DH/INF Yoshi Tsutsugo were rested, but got called on to pinch hit in the 10th. Kennedy fanned both of them. ... CF Kevin Kiermaier (left quadriceps strain) will travel with the team to New York this weekend and could be activated during a six-game road trip against the Yankees and Kansas City Royals. “He ran well, threw well. ... We’ll see where we’re at (Friday),” manager Kevin Cash said after the defensive whiz worked out before the game. UP NEXT Rangers: Return home to face Baltimore for three games before heading out on the road again. Mike Foltynewicz (0-2, 4.09 ERA) starts Friday against the Orioles, who counter with Jorge Lopez (0-2, 11.42) in the series opener. Rays: Open a weekend series at Yankee Stadium. Cash entered Thursday night undecided on his pitching plans for Friday. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Fred Goodall, The Associated Press
Japan's exports likely posted their strongest growth in more than three years in March as overseas demand recovered, a Reuters poll showed on Friday, but more disruptions from the coronavirus crisis threatened to slow the growth of shipments. The recovery in the world's third-largest economy has been led by improving output and exports, but slow vaccine rollouts and a renewed surge in COVID-19 cases are clouding the outlook for consumption. Next week's key data includes core consumer inflation, which is expected to fall for the eight consecutive month as price pressures remained low due to weak consumer demand.

"U.S. economic data released yesterday was all strong, confirming the U.S. economy is firmly on a recovery track," said Norihiro Fujito, chief investment strategist at Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities.

DALLAS — Denis Gurianov had his first two-goal game of the season, Miro Heiskanen and Joe Pavelski also scored and the Dallas Stars beat the Columbus Blue Jackets for a much-needed 4-1 win Thursday night. The defending Western Conference champion Stars, who are in sixth place in the Central Division, went ahead for good when Jason Dickinson assisted on goals by Gurianov and Heiskanen just more than a minute apart late in the second period for a 2-1 lead. Gurianov scored again with just under 12 minutes left in the game on a shot from the left side parallel to the front of the net that ricocheted off Blue Jackets defenceman Michael Del Zotto into the net. Pavelski scored his team-leading 17th goal about seven minutes later. The Stars won on a night when Nashville and Chicago, the teams directly ahead of them in the standings, both lost. The Blue Jackets and Stars wrap up their regular-season series on Saturday night, with Dallas holding a 4-2-1 series lead. Jack Roslovic scored on Columbus' first shot, taking a pass from Del Zotto and pushing the puck through a wide-open gap to the net behind rookie Jake Oettinger's extended left leg. The Blue Jackets have lost four in a row and seven of eight. Oettinger, playing for the first time in five games, stopped the final 17 shots he faced. Dallas, which has 44 points with 14 regular-season games left, was coming off consecutive overtime losses. One of those was at the fourth-place Predators, who hold the division's final playoff spot with 49 points and 11 regular-season games to play. The fifth-place Blackhawks have 45 points with 12 games to play. Blue Jackets goalie Elvis Merzlikins had some close calls even before Gurianov and Heiskanen scored 79 seconds apart to make it 2-1 at the second intermission. Merzlikins had 27 saves. Gurianov's initial goal came when he knocked in his own rebound past a sprawling Merzlikins to tie it at 1 with 3:18 left in the second period. Heiskanen scored, including an assist from Gurianov, on a shot from the slot that went under the goalie's right arm. PUCK TO THE FACE Columbus forward Oliver Bjorkstrand had a cut on his nose after taking a puck to the face in the closing seconds of the first period. Stars forward Blake Comeau was trying to chip the puck away out of the slot when he went under the visor of Bjorkstrand, who dropped to the ice momentarily before getting up and skating slowly to the bench. He was wearing a full face shield when play resumed in the second period. SEGUIN SKATES Six-time All-Star centre Tyler Seguin, still rehabbing from off-season hip surgery, went through the morning skate with the Stars. Coach Rick Bowness said it was a positive step for Seguin, who looked good on the ice. Stars general manager Jim Nill said Monday that Seguin could debut in about two weeks, which could be April 26 at home against Carolina. ___ More AP NHL coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Stephen Hawkins, The Associated Press
Things got heated at a youth basketball game after a disagreement over a call.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jakob Junis ran his consecutive scoreless streak to 14 innings as the Royals staked him to a seven-run lead Thursday night, and a shaky Kansas City bullpen held on after giving most of it back for a 7-5 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. Junis (1-0) was charged with two runs on five hits and a walk while pitching into the sixth, but both runs scored with reliever Jake Newberry on the mound. Kyle Zimmer gave up a run, and Scott Barlow put two on with one out in the ninth before getting Bo Bichette to pop out and striking out Vladimir Guerrero Jr. for his first save. Guerrero finished a triple shy of the cycle for the Blue Jays. The highlight for them was his two-out homer in the seventh that soared over the fountains in left field and landed an estimated 456 feet from home plate. It certainly wasn't Toronto spot-starter Anthony Kay (0-1), who gave up five runs on six hits in 3 1/3 innings. The Royals had been in an offensive slumber before breaking out against the Angels on Wednesday. A lineup built to drive the ball into the spacious gaps at Kauffman Stadium continued to pile up the extra-base hits Thursday night. Andrew Benintendi began the scoring with an RBI double before Kay even recorded an out. Nicky Lopez continued with an RBI triple in the third — then scored on an error by third baseman Cavan Biggio. But the big blow to the Blue Jays came in the fifth, when four of the first six batters that Kansas City sent to the plate dropped doubles into the outfield. Jorge Soler led off with the 100th double of his career. Hunter Dozier and Hanser Alberto followed with one-out doubles. And Whit Merrifield capped the four-run frame with a two-run double for a 7-0 lead. Junis' streak of 14 straight scoreless innings to start the season finally ended in the sixth, when Newberry allowed both of the runners he inherited to score during what became a four-run inning for the Blue Jays. ROSTER MOVES The Blue Jays put RHPs Ross Stripling (right flexor strain) and Jordan Romano (right ulnar neuritis) on the injured list before the game. Kay was recalled from the alternate training site along with RHP Joel Payamps, who pitched in relief. “It was tightness," manager Charlie Montoyo said of Stripling, the fourth Blue Jays starter to land on the IL. "We don't think it's that bad but it's not good enough for him to pitch in 10 days, we know that for sure.” TRAINER’S ROOM Blue Jays: Biggio left in the fifth inning with pain in his right hand. Joe Panik replaced him and hit a two-run double. Royals: SS Adalberto Mondesi has ramped up his movement but there remains no timetable for his return, manager Mike Matheny said. Mondesi has been on the injured list with a strained right oblique since the start of the season. UP NEXT The Blue Jays will send LHP Steven Matz (2-0, 1.46 ERA) against Royals RHP Mike Minor (1-0, 4.50) on Friday night unless rain forecasted to last most of the day washes things out. Minor is 4-0 in seven career appearances against Toronto. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Dave Skretta, The Associated Press

Japan's inability to contain the COVID-19 pandemic means that plans to hold the Olympics in Tokyo should be reconsidered, health experts wrote in a commentary. The 2020 Games, already delayed by one year, are due to begin in fewer than 100 days, even as Japan expands quasi-emergency measures to halt a fourth wave of infections. Japan has exhibited "poor performance" in containing virus transmission, along with limited testing capacity and a slow vaccination rollout, according to the commentary published in the British Medical Journal on Wednesday.
