Sports Minute: Here is the latest Washington, Oregon and Alaska sports news from The Associated Press
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Kevin Abel and Jake Mulholland combined on a four-hitter, Tyler Malone hit his third home run of the College World Series, and Oregon State survived some ninth-inning drama to beat Mississippi State 5-2 to reach the best-of-three finals against Arkansas. As they did in 2006, when they won the first of two straight national titles, the Beavers came back from losing their CWS opener to win four straight and make the finals.
BOSTON (AP) - Mike Leake pitched eight shutout innings, Mitch Haniger drove in three runs and the Seattle Mariners snapped a season-high five-game losing streak with a 7-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Nelson Cruz had three hits and scored twice a night after hitting two homers and driving in seven runs for Seattle, which went on its skid after beating Boston two straight at home last weekend.
SEATTLE (AP) - Clint Dempsey scored his first goal of the season to match the Seattle regular-season career goals record, helping the Sounders tie the Chicago Fire 1-1. Dempsey tied the club record for regular-season goals with 47 set by Fredy Montero from 2009-12. It was Dempsey's 57th goal across all competitions for the Sounders, three away from Montero's overall mark.
