SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story each homered and drove in three runs, and the Colorado Rockies set a franchise record with a 13-run fifth inning in a 17-7 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday night.

Gerardo Parra had two hits and three RBIs in the fifth, when Colorado sent 17 batters to the plate.

It's the most runs scored in an inning by any team since Arizona scored 13 in the fourth against Pittsburgh on April 11,...

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — James Neal scored with 4:21 left in the third period tying it up at 3-3, and the Nashville Predators and the San Jose Sharks went scoreless during the first two overtimes and headed to a third extra period early Friday morning.

This already is the second-longest game in franchise history for Nashville, while the Sharks hadn't played this long in the postseason since a four-overtime game in Dallas in 2008. This now is the third-longest playoff game...

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Colin Rea lost his no-hit bid with two outs in the seventh inning when Yoenis Cespedes singled the other way against a shift, and finished with eight-plus innings of three-hit ball as the San Diego Padres beat the New York Mets 5-3 Thursday night.

The Padres remain the only team in the major leagues without a no-hitter, failing to achieve the milestone in 7,519 games since 1969.

Rea (3-1) had retired 19 straight batters until...

CHICAGO (AP) — Dustin Pedroia, Hanley Ramirez and Jackie Bradley Jr. homered to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 7-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night.

The Red Sox won for the ninth time in 11 games and took two of three in this series between AL division leaders, although this was anything but a thing of beauty.

The teams combined to strand 21 runners and draw 16 walks. But the East-leading Red Sox came up with enough big hits to...

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Colin Rea of the San Diego Padres has lost his no-hit bid with two outs in the seventh inning against the New York Mets.

Yoenis Cespedes grounded a single through the right side for the Mets' first hit Thursday night. The Padres had shifted three infielders to the left side for Cespedes, and the slugger tapped a single through the vacated spot.

The Padres remain the only big league team without a no-hitter. San Diego played its first...
