SEATTLE (AP) — Cleveland’s Zach Plesac has not allowed a hit through six innings against the Seattle Mariners. Plesac hasn’t been overpowering, but he has induced weak contact when Seattle has put the ball in play Thursday night. The right-hander has two strikeouts and three walks on 68 pitches. Only four of the 18 outs have been made by outfielders, including Josh Naylor’s grab in foul territory while crashing into the stands on the first pitch of the game to Seattle's Jarred Kelenic. Plesac, the nephew of longtime big league pitcher Dan Plesac, was 2-3 with a 3.83 ERA entering Thursday. Cleveland has the longest no-hitter drought in the majors — its last one was Len Barker’s perfect game in 1981. There have been four no-hitters already this season, and Seattle and Cleveland have been involved in three of them. The Mariners were no-hit by Baltimore’s John Means in their last home game on May 5. They've gotten 15 innings without a hit at home. The Indians have been no-hit twice — by Chicago White Sox left-hander Carlos Rodón on April 14 and by Cincinnati lefty Wade Miley a week ago. Cleveland leads 4-0. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press

BANGKOK (AP) — Asian shares rose Friday after Wall Street put the brakes on a three-day losing streak with a broad stock market rally powered by Big Tech companies and banks. Shares in big semiconductor manufacturers led the advance in Asia, where almost all markets opened higher. Japan's Nikkei 225 added 1.8% to 27,940.90 and the Kospi in Seoul picked up 0.7% to 3,146.86, lifted by gains for Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix, which gained 1.9% and 1.3% after announcing plans to expand their investments in chip production and development. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng advanced 0.8% to 27,941.69. The Shanghai Composite index gained 1.1% to 3,467.62 while Australia's S&P/ASX 200 was 0.7% higher at 7,033.30. Bitcoin added 2.1% to $49,390.00. Its price plunged 10% earlier this week after Tesla CEO Elon Musk reversed his earlier position on the digital currency and said the electric car maker would no longer accept it as payment. Markets rallied as prices of key commodities such as copper, zinc and aluminum slipped, alleviating concerns over inflation that triggered sell-offs earlier in the week. On Thursday, the S&P 500 notched a 1.2% gain, clawing back almost half of its loss from a day earlier, when it had its biggest one-day drop since February. Even so, the benchmark index is on track for a 2.8% weekly decline, which would be its largest since January. The other major indexes were also on pace for sharp weekly declines, despite recouping some of their losses. Technology stocks led the gainers after sinking earlier in the week as investors fretted about signs of rising inflation. Apple, Microsoft, Facebook and Google's parent company all rose. Financial companies also did well. JPMorgan Chase, Charles Schwab and Capital One Financial each rose more than 2%. In a reversal from Wednesday, the energy sector was the only loser in the S&P 500 as oil prices fell sharply as the reopening of the Colonial Oil pipeline after a cyberattack eased concerns about supplies. The S&P 500 gained 49.46 points to 4,112.50. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 1.3% to 34,021.45. The Nasdaq climbed 0.7% to 13,124.99. The Russell 2000 index picked up 1.7% to 2,170.95. Investors have been questioning whether rising inflation will be something transitory, as the Federal Reserve has said, or something more durable that the Fed will have to address. The central bank has kept interest rates low to aid the recovery, but concerns are growing that it will have to shift its position if inflation starts running too hot. Bond yields have risen sharply this week but pulled back slightly on Thursday. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note was 1.65% on Friday, compared with 1.70% on Wednesday. The price of U.S. crude oil lost 18 cents to $63.63 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It fell 3.4% on Thursday after the Colonial gasoline pipeline on the East Coast was reopened late Wednesday. Brent crude, the international standard for pricing, lost 25 cents to $66.80 per barrel. The U.S. dollar rose to 109.60 Japanese yen from 109.46 yen late Thursday. The euro was unchanged at $1.2081. ___ AP Business writers Damian J. Troise and Alex Veiga contributed.

CALGARY — Elias Lindholm and Matthew Tkachuk each had a goal and an assist for the Calgary Flames in a 4-1 win Thursday over the visiting Vancouver Canucks. Rasmus Andersson and Andrew Mangiapane also scored for the Flames (24-26-3). Johnny Gaudreau had two assists. Goaltender Jacob Markstrom made 24 saves for the win. Matthew Highmore scored for Vancouver (21-28-3) with Thatcher Demko turning away 24 shots in the loss. Calgary and Vancouver will finish outside the playoffs in the NHL's North Division. The two clubs meet three more times starting Sunday while NHL playoff series get underway. Calgary and Vancouver are making up games lost when COVID-19 swept through the Canucks and suspended their season for three weeks. The Flames and Canucks cap their seasons Wednesday on the same day the Edmonton Oilers and Winnipeg Jets open their first-round playoff series. The Canucks also play in Edmonton on Saturday for the Oilers' regular-season finale. Calgary leads the season series against Vancouver 5-2. Tkachuk was credited with a Canucks own-goal at 16:37 of the third period. J.T. Miller reached to redirect the puck and ended up chipping it over Demko's shoulder. Vancouver's Jimmy Vesey took a double minor for unsportsmanlike conduct with four minutes remaining in the game. Lindholm scored on a breakaway at 15:33. Defenceman Chris Tanev head-manned the puck to Tkachuk, who chipped it to a streaking Lindholm. A diving Demko robbed defenceman Oliver Kylington with a glove save on a Flames odd-man rush in a scoreless second period. Mangiapane tipped a Nikita Nesterov shot from the blue-line off the post and in at 5:17 of the first period for a 2-1 Flames lead. From behind the goal-line, Gaudreau dished the puck out front for Andersson to roof at 3:36. Highmore scored his first as a Canuck on Vancouver's first shot of the game 62 seconds after the opening faceoff. The 25-year-old from Halifax tipped a Travis Hamonic shot by Markstrom. Notes: Gaudreau has six goals and 11 assists in his last 13 games . . . Vancouver's Brock Boeser has four goals and six assists in his last 10 . . . Calgary was without top centre Sean Monahan, whose season was shut down this week because of a hip injury requiring surgery . . . Tanev was an assistant captain in Monahan's absence . . . Mangiapane, Flames teammate Dillon Dube and Canucks goaltender Mike DiPietro will play for Canada at the men's world hockey championship in Riga, Latvia starting May 21.

Police say as many as eight people may have been shot in incident
DENVER (AP) — Tyson Jost scored two of Colorado’s five second-period goals as the Avalanche clinched the West Division and the top overall seed in the NHL playoffs with a 5-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, Joonas Donskoi and Andre Burakovsky also scored in the pivotal period. Backup Jonas Johansson made 21 saves to help the Avalanche finish 7-1 against the Kings this season. Colorado and Vegas both finished with 82 points, but the Avs earned the division crown and the Presidents’ Trophy — awarded to the team with the best regular-season mark — due to more regulation wins. This was the first time the Avalanche have captured the Presidents’ Trophy since 2000-01, when they went on to hoist the Stanley Cup. Colorado begins a first-round series Monday against St. Louis, which wound up with the fourth seed in the West. Sean Walker scored for the Kings as they wrapped up their season on an 0-4-1 skid. Troy Grosenick stopped 38 shots. The home-ice advantage could come in handy: The Avalanche have been playing at a high level at home, going 16-0-1 in their last 17 at Ball Arena. The 17 straight home games with at least a point ties the club record set in 2003. Down 1-0 heading into the second, Colorado quickly found its rhythm. Jost led the way by scoring twice within a 1:52 span to give the Avalanche a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The action got a little heated late in the second when Kings forward Brendan Lemieux collided with Avs defenseman Samuel Girard near mid-ice. Girard's fellow defenseman, Ryan Graves, took exception and immediately dropped the gloves to square off against Lemieux. Johansson stepped in for starter Philipp Grubauer, who shut out the Kings in a 6-0 win Wednesday. Avalanche coach Jared Bednar hasn’t played Grubauer in back-to-back games all season and didn’t want to start now, despite the importance. Johansson rewarded his faith by improving to 5-1-1 with Colorado since being acquired in a deal with Buffalo on March 20. Mikko Rantanen assisted on both of Jost’s scores to give him 66 points (30 goals, 36 assists). It's the most on the team this season. The Kings struck late in the first period when Walker capitalized on Burakovsky tumbling to the ice trying to keep the puck in the offensive end. Walker had a clear path to the goal and threaded a shot under Johansson's glove for his fifth goal of the season. NO MAC Avalanche forward MacKinnon sat out Thursday for the fourth time in five games due to a lower-body injury. The team went 4-0 in the games he missed. “We have such a deep roster that we have guys who can fill spots,” captain Gabriel Landeskog said. “Obviously, we miss him.” THIS & THAT Colorado F Carl Soderberg was scratched for a second straight game. ... Avs D Conor Timmins had two assists. ... D Cale Makar had an assist to finish with 44 points in 44 games. He joined Steve Duchesne (82 points in 82 game with Quebec in ’92-93) as the only defensemen in franchise history to average a point-per-game (minimum 40 games). ... Goaltender Devan Dubnyk remains on the league’s COVID-19 protocol list. ___ More AP NHL: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Pat Graham, The Associated Press

MEXICO CITY (AP) — The Mexican government said Thursday it will take legal measures to try to stop a planned May 18 auction of pre-Hispanic artifacts by the Sotheby’s New York auction house. The National Institute of Anthropology and History says some of the artifacts are part of Mexico’s cultural heritage, and thus should not be sold. The institute said it has appealed to Interpol to request legal and diplomatic assistance in the case. The institute did not specify which pieces it wanted returned to Mexico. But the Sotheby’s catalogue for that date includes a serpentine stone carving of an Olmec head, a Maya stone carving which appears to depict a bat or jaguar and a serpent, and a clay pitcher in the form of a waterfowl. Pre-sale price estimates for the pieces range up to $70,000. Mexico has had limited success in recent years in its attempts to stop such auctions. The Associated Press
