     SEATTLE (AP) - Minnesota's Phil Hughes pitched into the eighth inning, Sam Fuld barely cleared the wall with his second home run of the season and the Twins beat the Seattle Mariners 2-0 on Tuesday night.
 
     Hughes rebounded from being knocked around in his previous two starts to shut down the Mariners. Hughes gave up eight hits in 7 1-3 innings, struck out eight and didn't walk a batter in silencing Seattle's stagnant offense.
 
     A night after Fuld could not pull back Michael Saunders' home run, the roles were reversed. Fuld hit a 3-2 pitch from Seattle starter Chris Young beyond the wall in right and just out of the reach of Saunders for the solo shot in the fifth inning. It was the first homer for Fuld since April 10. He finished with three hits and two stolen bases.
 
     Glen Perkins pitched the ninth for his 21st save.

     Tulowitzki will have Miami's Giancarlo Stanton, who entered Tuesday leading the National League in homers, the Dodgers' Yasiel Puig and Cincinnati's Todd Frazier on his side.
 
     The final competitor in each league will be announced on Thursday.

     NEW YORK (AP) - Minot native Gary Cederstrom is going to be the home plate umpire for next week's All-Star game at Target Field in Minnesota.  Cederstrom also will serve as the crew chief in his second career All-Star game. He was the third base umpire for the 2003 game at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago.
 
     Jeff Nelson (first base), Bob Davidson (second base), Scott Barry (third base), Todd Tichenor (left field) and Vic Carapazza (right field) also have been assigned to this year's Midsummer Classic. Jerry Layne will serve as the replay official based in New York.
 
     Major League Baseball announced the umpires on Tuesday.  The official scorers for the game will be Stew Thornley, Gregg Wong and La Velle Neal, the president of the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Maya Moore scored 16 of her 30 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Minnesota Lynx to an 82-72 victory over the Los Angeles Sparks on Tuesday night.  Lindsay Whalen added 16 points for Minnesota, which improved to 8-1 at home.
 
     Jantel Lavender scored 17 points and Candace Parker added 16 for Los Angeles, which closed the third quarter with a 9-0 run to take a 59-56 lead.
 
     Moore, announced the top vote-getter in All-Star balloting earlier in the evening, then took over for the defending champions.
 
     Nneka Ogwumike led all rebounders with 14 for the Sparks, who lost their second game in a row.

     NEW YORK (AP) - Minnesota star Maya Moore is the leading vote-getter for the WNBA All-Star game.  She will start for the Western Conference alongside Phoenix's Diana Taurasi and Brittney Griner, Tulsa's Skylar Diggins and Los Angeles' Candace Parker.
 
     Elena Delle Donne received the most votes in the Eastern Conference, earning her second straight trip to the All-Star game. She became the first rookie to lead the league's All-Star balloting last year, but wasn't able to play after she suffered a concussion a few days before the game.  Delle Donne is sidelined with a flare-up of Lyme Disease and has only played once for Chicago in the past 10 games.
 
     New York's Cappie Pondexter, Indiana's Tamika Catchings, and Atlanta's Shoni Schimmel and Angel McCoughtry round out the rest of the East starters for the July 19 game in Phoenix.

     UNDATED (AP) - On Monday night, it was Matt Adams delivering a walkoff homer in the bottom of the ninth for St. Louis. Last night, Kolten Wong turned the trick. The Cards rookie connected off Ernesto Frieri with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to give the red-hot Cards a 5-4 win over Pittsburgh.  Wong also gave the Cardinals the early lead with a two-run double in the second.  The Cardinals last had consecutive game-winning homers when Albert Pujols twice beat the Cubs on June 4 and 5, 2011.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Cincinnati Reds have placed first baseman Joey Votto on the 15-day disabled list with a nagging thigh injury that is expected to limit him for the rest of the season. Catcher Brayan Pena was activated off the paternity list and will be a primary fill-in at first base while Votto is gone.  Votto earlier missed 23 games while on the DL with a strained muscle above his left knee. Tests found he has aggravated the injury.
 
     In other news:
 
     - The Los Angeles Dodgers have put pitcher Josh Beckett on the 15-day disabled list with a left hip impingement. The right-hander pitched five scoreless innings in a win at Colorado on Sunday, but was removed after just 82 pitches. Beckett began the season on the DL with a right thumb contusion, but has made each of his 17 starts since then, going 6-5 with a 2.26 ERA.
 
     - Houston Astros outfielder Alex Presley has been put on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique. Presley had a homer in Monday night's win before having to leave in the middle of an at-bat.
 
     - The Cleveland Indians have placed pitcher Justin Masterson on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right knee. Masterson, the team's opening day starter, is 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA. In his last five starts he has given up 19 runs, 27 hits and 17 walks in 18 innings. The right-hander allowed five runs and six hits in two-plus innings Monday against the New York Yankees, and was pulled without retiring a batter in the third.
 
     - The Minnesota Twins have placed struggling right-hander Ricky Nolasco on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right elbow. Nolasco is 5-7 with a 5.90 ERA in 18 starts.
 
     - St. Louis Cardinals left-hander Jaime Garcia will undergo thoracic outlet surgery Friday to relieve nerve issues in his pitching arm, shoulder and hand. He had already been shut down for the season.

     LAS VEGAS (AP) - LeBron James held meetings for more than three hours in Las Vegas, but left without giving any indication of what team he'll play for next season.  The four-time MVP told The Associated Press he had "no complaints" when asked how free agency was going.  He declined to say whom he had met with or whether he had made a decision of where he'll play next.
 
     James is expected to meet with Miami Heat President Pat Riley before making a final decision on his NBA future, and a person close to the situation said that meeting had not happened as of Tuesday afternoon. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no one has publicly announced the date of the meeting.  Some of James' representatives have met with several teams, including the Cleveland Cavaliers.
