Mariners add run on replay, beat Rangers 7-1
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Mike Zunino homered an inning before adding an RBI single in Seattle's strange six-run outburst that included three Texas Rangers errors and a replay reversal that gave the Mariners a run in their 7-1 victory Monday night.
Roenis Elias (1-1) worked into the seventh inning with five strikeouts for his first major league victory in the left-hander's third career start.
The Mariners went ahead to stay in the fifth on Zunino's solo homer off Colby Lewis (0-1), who made his first big league start in 21 months after elbow and hip operations.
Seattle's six-run sixth got started when Robinson Cano hit a leadoff single and scored on Michael Saunders' triple to left-center - a ball that center fielder Leonys Martin bobbled without getting charged with an error. Kyle Seager followed with an RBI single that chased Lewis, and then things got interesting.
REPLAY DISPUTE-WASHINGTON EJECTED
Rangers manager ejected for replay dispute
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington was ejected from Monday night's game after disputing a ruling overturned by replay that gave the Seattle Mariners a run.
The Mariners had the bases loaded in the sixth when Brad Miller hit a comebacker to pitcher Pedro Figueroa, who threw home. Umpire Paul Schrieber initially ruled an out at the plate, even though catcher J.P. Arencibia bobbled the ball on a transfer without dropping it or making a throw.
Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon challenged the call. After a review that took 3 minutes, 31 seconds, the umpires reversed their ruling, erasing the out and giving Seattle a run.
Washington immediately came out to argue and was ejected by crew chief Ted Barrett after getting to the plate.
On Sunday night, Boston manager John Farrell became the first manager to be ejected for arguing a replay decision. Managers aren't allowed to dispute replay rulings.
Warriors C Bogut undergoes rib X-rays
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Golden State center Andrew Bogut underwent rib X-rays following the Warriors' 119-117 overtime loss at Portland on Sunday night.
Bogut did not play in overtime, but finished with two points and nine rebounds in nearly 32 minutes.
The eight-year NBA veteran is averaging 7.4 points, 10 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 66 games for Golden State this season.
Results of the X-ray were not immediately available.
Warriors coach Mark Jackson was taking a wait-and-see approach, telling reporters after the game that he'd wait to see how the situation plays out.
The apparent injury comes four games into Bogut's return from a pelvis contusion that sidelined him for four games.

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) - Chiney Ogwumike has been selected as the No. 1 pick by the Connecticut Sun in the WNBA draft.

Chiney Ogwumike finished her stellar career at Stanford as the top scorer and rebounder in Pac-12 history.
The choice of the two-time AP All-American drew loud cheers from the crowd at the Mohegan Sun Arena, where Connecticut plays its home games. This was the first time fans were allowed to attend the draft since it was held in Tampa in 2008.

Merriman suing Nike over Lights Out name
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Former NFL linebacker Shawne Merriman is suing Nike for trademark infringement and unfair competition over its Lights Out apparel line.
The suit, filed on behalf of Merriman's Lights Out Holdings LLC, was filed in U.S. District Court on Monday.
According to the suit, after Nike and Merriman unsuccessfully negotiated to create a Lights Out apparel line in 2006 or 2007, the company used the name anyway.
The lawsuit says Merriman acquired the federal trademark rights for Lights Out in 2007.
He was nicknamed "Lights Out" after knocking out opponents in a high school game.
The suit demands an injunction to stop trademark infringement and related unfair business practices, as well as damages to be determined at trial.
A Nike spokesman said the company doesn't comment on litigation.
