     SEATTLE (AP) - Kendrys Morales knocked in three runs and Kyle Gibson pitched six shutout innings to lead the Minnesota Twins to an 8-1 rout of the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday night.
 
     Chris Colabello hit a two-run double, Brian Dozier scored twice and the Twins put up eight runs in the first four innings to chase an ineffective Roenis Elias. The rookie lasted a career-low 3 1/3 innings, yielding seven runs - six earned - and seven hits with three walks.
 
     Gibson allowed multiple baserunners in three innings and only retired the side in order once. But he worked around seven hits and a walk, rebounding from a rough outing against the New York Yankees.  He gave up six runs, five earned, and six hits in two innings of a 6-5 loss last Friday.

     UNDATED (AP) - Gregg Popovich has agreed to a multi-year extension to stay on as coach of the San Antonio Spurs.  The team did not announce the terms of the deal in a two-sentence news release.
 
     Popovich returns to a team that has Tim Duncan, Boris Diaw and the rest of the key elements of a team that won the franchise's fifth NBA title all set to return next season. It was the Spurs' fifth title under Popovich, who also won his third coach of the year award after leading the team to an NBA-best 62 wins in the regular season.
 
     He is one of three coaches to be named coach of the year three times.
 
     In other NBA news:
 
     - A person familiar with the situation says Pat Riley has gotten his chance at convincing LeBron James to stay in Miami. The person told The Associated Press that the Miami Heat president met with the four-time NBA MVP in Las Vegas, more than two weeks after James opted out of his contract and elected to become a free agent. According to the source, James, his agent Rich Paul, Riley and Heat executive Andy Elisburg were at the meeting.
 
     - The Dallas Mavericks have made a move at small forward, agreeing with restricted free agent Chandler Parsons on a three-year offer sheet worth more than $45 million. Houston will now have to decide whether to match the offer.
 
     - In an apparent move to clear cap space to try and lure either LeBron James or another high-profile free agent, the Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly pulled off a three-team trade. A person familiar with the deals says the Cavaliers have agreed to trade guard Jarrett Jack, swingman Sergey Karasev and center Tyler Zeller. The Cavs have agreements with the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because teams are not permitted to discuss any trades until the league's moratorium ends Thursday.
 
     - A person close to the situation says restricted free agent Gordon Hayward has agreed to a maximum offer sheet with the Charlotte Hornets that would pay the small forward $63 million over the next four years. The Utah Jazz would have three days to match the deal once Hayward officially signs the offer sheet. Hayward, who visited with the Hornets this week, averaged 16.2 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game last season for Utah.
 
     - The Bucks have signed first-round draft pick Jabari Parker to his rookie contract. Parker is guaranteed a minimum of about $8.5 million in the first two years.
 
     - The NBA has set the 2014-15 salary cap at a record $63.1 million. The cap is a 7.5 percent increase from last season's $58.7 million. The setting of the cap paves the way for contracts to be signed starting at 12:01 EDT, Thursday.  Players and teams could agree to contracts starting July 1, but they couldn't be signed during the moratorium period.
