SASKATOON, Saskatchewan (AP) — SEATTLE (AP) — Jeff Baker hit a two-run homer and Lance Berkman added a three-run shot, both off Seattle starter Joe Saunders, and the Texas Rangers had a 9-5 victory in last night's game against the Mariners. It was Berkman's fourth homer of the season into the left-field seats that broke the game open in the third, sending Saunders to his first career loss at Safeco Field. This is the seventh straight loss for Seattle.

SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners have designated infielder Robert Andino for assignment, recalled infielder Carlos Triunfel from Triple-A Tacoma and selected catcher Jesus Sucre. The team made the flurry of roster moves yesterday, a day after they sent slumping catcher Jesus Montero down to Tacoma in the hopes of igniting his season. Triunfel will be making his second appearance with the club after playing in 10 games last season. He was hitting .300 with 14 doubles and 19 RBIs in 44 games with Tacoma this season.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks have lost backup tight end Anthony McCoy for possibly the entire 2013 season after he sustained a torn Achilles during an organized team activity this week. The Seahawks confirmed McCoy injury yesterday, which was first reported by USA Today. McCoy has already undergone surgery to repair the injury and recovery time is typically six to nine months.

UNDATED (AP) —Nebraska Huskers softball coach Rhonda Revelle will face the team she grew up rooting for at this weekend's NCAA Super Regional. The winner of the three-game series between the Huskers and the Oregon Ducks will advance to the Women's College World Series in Oklahoma City. Revelle won 13 games for the Ducks in 1980 and helped them advance to the AIAW national championship tournament.

SASKATOON, Saskatchewan (AP) — Ty Rattie scored in the third period and Mac Carruth made 34 saves to help the Portland Winterhawks beat the London Knights 2-1 in last night's Memorial Cup semifinal. Tyler Wotherspoon also scored, and Nicolas Petan added two assists for Western Hockey League champion Portland. The Winterhawks will face the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League champion Halifax Mooseheads tomorrow night in the Canadian Hockey League title game.
