SEATTLE (AP) — Eric Haase hit two home runs, Casey Mize took a two-hit shutout into the eighth inning and the Detroit Tigers beat the Seattle Mariners 4-1 on Monday night. The Tigers, who began the day 12 games under .500, have won six of eight. Seattle's three-game winning streak ended. Mize (3-3) allowed just three hits and permitted only two runners past first base in a career-high 7 2/3 innings. It was his second straight win and fourth consecutive quality start. Mize, the 24-year-old centerpiece of Detroit’s rebuild and the overall No. 1 pick in the 2018, struck out seven — that matched his career high, set in his debut last year. After getting double plays from the defensively suspect Tigers to end the first and second innings, the right-hander retired 15 of 17 batters before Tom Murphy homered to lead off the eighth. Michael Fulmer earned the save, his third. Seattle starter Yusei Kikuchi (1-3) struggled early, needing 50 pitches to get out of the second inning. He walked two to load the bases in the first before getting out of the inning with a strikeout. Haase hit a leadoff homer in the second. And after Kikuchi walked Robbie Grossman with two outs, Jonathan Schoop also homered to make it 3-0. Haase hit another solo homer in the ninth off reliever Brady Lail for a 4-1 lead. It was his first multihomer game. MENDING MARCO Seattle lefty Marco Gonzales had a short session throwing off a mound for the first time on Monday as he continues to recover from a forearm strain. Gonzales said he made about 15 tosses with the goal to build up to a 25- to 30-pitch bullpen session toward the end of the week. Gonzales has been on the injured list since April 29. He’s not putting a timetable on a potential return, knowing it’ll take several weeks to build up his arm strength after being limited in his throwing. Gonzales did have a special throwing partner when Seattle was out on its road trip. Ichiro Suzuki came down to T-Mobile Park to throw with Gonzales one day. “That was so special. He came in and threw with everybody that needed to throw here and rehab, and hung around, was flipping in the cage with (Jake) Fraley and working out,” Gonzales said. “I mean, the dude is unreal.” TRAINER’S ROOM Tigers: C/DH Wilson Ramos (lower back strain) returned to the lineup from the 10-day injured list, giving Detroit three catchers on the roster. All were in the lineup with Ramos at designated hitter, Haase in left field and Jake Rogers behind the plate. The Tigers optioned RHP Alex Lange to Triple-A Toledo to make room. Mariners: Seattle selected right-hander Brady Lail from Triple-A Tacoma to give needed depth to its overused bullpen. After a couple of bullpen days due to injuries in the starting rotation, the Mariners were left extremely thin and needed Lail to be available. “We’re still only six, seven weeks into the season. You’d be very cautious running a player three days in a row, four out of five things like that are things we would like to stay away from,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said. Seattle optioned infielder Jack Mayfield to Tacoma and designated for assignment right-hander Domingo Tapia to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. UP NEXT Tigers: RHP Spencer Turnbull (2-2, 3.91) recorded a season-high seven strikeouts in his last start. Mariners: RHP Justin Dunn (1-1, 3.72) returns to the mound six days his first loss. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Chris Talbott, The Associated Press
HONG KONG (AP) — Hong Kong’s incoming Roman Catholic bishop Stephen Chow called for plurality to be respected, in a time of polarization in the Catholic community as the city’s political situation deteriorates. Chow said while he had “no big plan” on how to unify a diocese that had become politically polarized over the last two years amid months of anti-government protests in Hong Kong, he believed that God wanted them to be united. “Unity is not the same as uniformity,” Chow said at a news conference Tuesday. “One thing I’ve always mentioned recently in schools is (there is) unity is plurality. “We need to respect plurality,” he said. Pope Francis named Chow to the position on Monday, replacing late Bishop Michael Yeung, who died in 2019. Chow, a Hong Kong native, was educated in the U.S. and Ireland and is a school supervisor at the city’s Wah Yan College. The Catholic community in Hong Kong comprises about 404,000 people, or about 5.3% of the city’s population. The Catholic community is split between those who see Beijing's control over Hong Kong as an attack on the city's freedoms, and pro-establishment figures who prefer a less confrontational approach. Hong Kong’s largely pro-Beijing chief executive, Carrie Lam, is also a Roman Catholic. Chow has headed the Chinese Province of the Society of Jesus since 2018, and led the Jesuit order in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan as China and the Vatican signed a landmark deal in 2018 that gave both sides a say in the appointments of bishops in the Chinese church. China’s Catholics are legally only allowed to worship in churches approved by the Chinese government, but many attend underground churches led by bishops loyal to Rome. Chow said Tuesday that there should not be the assumption that Beijing and the Chinese church are enemies since both churches believe in the same faith, and should try to seek understanding together. However, he reiterated that the Latin Church does not have a formal diplomatic relationship with China, and therefore operates independently. When asked about his thoughts on calls to commemorate the Tiananmen Square crackdown in 1989 this year, Chow said that whether public commemoration is possible this year depends on legal requirements. He had participated in past public commemorations in Hong Kong, which last year for the first time did not allow public gatherings to mark the June 4 anniversary of the crackdown in which Chinese troops moved against student-led, pro-democracy demonstrations in Beijing, killing hundreds, possible thousands, of protesters. He said that there are different means of commemoration. “I pray for all those who have passed in 1989, in all aspects, from all walks of life,” Chow said. The Associated Press

Lawyers are spaced out in jury boxes on both sides of the courtroom, Plexiglas separates participants, and the 21 jurors in the case, including nine alternates, are seated several seats and rows apart in the gallery.
