     NEW YORK (AP) - Ron Gardenhire will be in the dugout with the AL All-Stars at his home stadium. The Minnesota manager was chosen along with Cleveland's Terry Francona as coaches to join AL manager John Farrell of Boston in the July 15th All-Star game at Target Field. Manager Mike Matheny of St. Louis chose Clint Hurdle of Pittsburgh and Fredi Gonzalez of Atlanta as his coaching staff for the NL.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - With construction underway on their new stadium, the Minnesota Vikings have intensified their push to add a Major League Soccer franchise to the facility.
 
     The Vikings announced this week a partnership with promoter Relevent Sports, a major player in the soccer world that is also helping sell an international tournament game between two European teams that will be played at the University of Minnesota in August.  Relevent CEO Charlie Stillitano said Wednesday that whichever market his group brings a game to, the MLS usually follows.
 
     Vikings officials have met with MLS leaders, touting their plan to make the 65,000-seat stadium intimate and energetic enough for soccer games.

     NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Rangers have extended the NHL season by at least one game. They avoided a sweep and forced a Game 5 in the Stanley Cup finals by topping Los Angeles 2-1 behind the superb goaltending of Henrik Lundqvist.
 
     The Rangers were outshot 41-19 in the game, including a lopsided 15-1 mark in the third period. But Lundqvist stifled the Kings after surrendering three goals on just 15 shots in Game 3. He was perfect after Dustin Brown scored unassisted midway through the second period.
 
     The Rangers took a 2-0 lead on goals by Benoit Pouliot and Martin St. Louis.  Pouliot tallied 7:25 into the opening period and St. Louis scored early in the second. However, two-goal margins had meant little to New York previously in this series. The Rangers led 2-0 in the opener and had leads of 2-0 and 4-2 in Game 2 before losing both contests in overtime. This time, Lundqvist made sure the series headed back to Los Angeles for Game 5 on Friday.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Detroit Tigers woke up the morning of May 19 with a major league-leading 27-12 record and a seven-game lead in the American League Central. They've posted the worst record in the division since, going 6-16 while being outscored by 53 runs.
 
     The slump continued on Wednesday as the White Sox chased Justin Verlander during a seventh-run sixth that led to an 8-2 rout of the Tigers in Chicago.  Gordon Beckham hit a two-run single and Conor Gillaspie added a two-run double during the sixth-inning rally. Jose Abreu hit a second-inning homer before opening the sixth with a single.
 
     John Danks held the suddenly-toothless Tigers to two runs and six hits in seven innings to help Chicago pull into with 2 1/2 games of Detroit. The White Sox were nine games back less than a month ago.
 
     Elsewhere in the majors:
 
     - Masahiro Tanaka is 10-1 after tossing a six-hitter with nine strikeouts in the New York Yankees' 4-2 win over Seattle. Mark Teixeira launched a three-run homer to back Tanaka, who blanked the Mariners until Robinson Cano's two-run blast in the ninth.
 
     - Tommy Milone gave up a run and six hits over 6 2/3 innings of Oakland's 7-1 triumph over the Angels. Yoenis Cespedes went 3-for-5 with two RBIS and Stephen Vogt hit a two-run homer to put the A's ahead 4-1 in the sixth.
 
     - Jayson Werth socked a solo homer and added a two-run single in Washington's fourth straight win, 6-2 in San Francisco. Tanner Roark gave up two runs in six innings for his fifth win.
 
     - Wily Peralta combined with four relievers on a five-hitter in Milwaukee's 3-1 win over the New York Mets. Jean Segura and Carlos Gomez hit RBI single to back Peralta, who limited the Mets to four hits over 6 1/3 innings.
 
     - Tampa Bay won for just the second time in 16 games as Desmond Jennings laced a go-ahead, two-run single in the four-run fourth to lift the Rays over St. Louis 6-3. The Rays' bullpen tossed five innings of one-hit relief after Erik Bedard spotted the Cardinals a 3-0 lead.
 
     - Philadelphia beat San Diego 3-0 on Reid Brignac's three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth. Cole Hamels gained a no-decision after striking out 11 while allowing just five hits in eight scoreless innings.
 
     - Yordano Ventura allowed a run and six hits in seven innings as Kansas City earned its fourth straight win, downing Cleveland 4-1.The Royals tied a team record with four sacrifice flies and became only the second team to score four runs all on sac-flies since it became an official stat in 1954.
 
     - Wei-Yin Chen is 7-2 after allowing four hits over seven innings of Baltimore's 6-0 shutout of Boston. Chris Davis hit a two-run homer for the Orioles, who allowed just one run in taking two of three from the Red Sox.
 
     - Chris Carter smacked a pair of solo homers and Dallas Keuchel improved to 8-3 as Houston downed Arizona 5-1. George Springer had two hits and an RBI to support Keuchel, who gave up only a run and four hits in eight innings.
 
     - Texas beat Miami 6-0 behind Yu Darvish, who struck out 10 and allowed six hits in his first major league complete game. Shin-Soo Choo broke a long hitless streak with a three-run double to help the Rangers stop the Marlins' record-tying 13-game winning streak in interleague play.
 
     - Pittsburgh doubled up the Chicago Cubs 4-2 as Andrew McCutchen homered and reached base four times. The Pirates rocked Cubs starter Jason Hammel for 11 hits in five innings.
 
     - Tyler Matzek was terrific in his major league debut, yielding just two runs and five hits in seven-plus innings of Colorado's 8-2 rout of Atlanta. Matzek retired his first 13 hitters and carried a two-hit shutout into the eighth.
 
     - Johnny Cueto matched his career high with 12 strikeouts in just six innings of the Reds' 5-0 shutout of the Dodgers in Cincinnati. Joey Votto (VAH'-toh) hit a two-run double and Jay Bruce belted a homer as the Reds ended the Dodgers' three-game winning streak.

     UNDATED (AP) - Tony Scheffler is retiring from the NFL.  Scheffler told The Associated Press that having three concussions over the past four years had "a lot" to do with his choice.
 
     He had 258 receptions for 3,207 yards and 22 touchdowns in his eight-year career. The Detroit Lions released Scheffler in October. He later had workouts with Chicago and Kansas City and says there was "moderate" interest in him as a free agent this offseason.
 
     Denver drafted him in the second round in 2006 out of Western Michigan and traded him four years later to Detroit.
