     Chicago tied the game at 3 in the eighth inning on back-to-back one-out doubles by Leury Garcia and Yoan Moncada.
 
     Avisail Garcia led off the ninth with a single and was sacrificed to second. Following an intentional walk to Yolmer Sanchez, Anderson produced the first walk-off hit of his career.

     CHICAGO (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have promoted right-handed reliever John Curtiss from Triple-A Rochester. The move was made before their game Wednesday at Chicago. Curtiss would be the 50th player used by the Twins this season and the 12th to make his major league debut.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have relaunched their charitable arm, targeting childhood hunger, obesity, fitness and education.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Crews are continuing to repair exterior panels on U.S. Bank Stadium as the Minnesota Vikings prepare for their second season in the facility. The $1.1 billion stadium in downtown Minneapolis was completed more than a year ago, but workers are still fixing panels in about half a dozen spots. The durability of the panels has long been a concern. Panels came loose during storms in July 2016 and last March. Earlier this year, water seeped through and created puddles in various places.
 
     Finance & Commerce reports about 10 percent of zinc panels covering the outside of the stadium are being repaired. The work is expected to wrap up next month. The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority says the repairs are covered under warranty, and there is no cost to taxpayers.

     UNDATED (AP) - Dodgers lefty Rich Hill tossed nine no-hit innings against the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Wednesday. The 10th inning was a killer.
 
     Josh Harrison led off the bottom of the 10th with a home run to give the Pirates a 1-0 win over Los Angeles.
 
     Hill had a perfect game until third baseman Logan Forsythe booted Jordy Mercer's grounder for an error leading off the ninth. Hill retired the next three Pirates, but the Dodgers failed to score in the 10th before Harrison's 16th homer of the season sent Los Angeles to its first loss in three games.
 
     Hill became the first pitcher since Pedro Martinez in 1995 to take a no-hit try into extra innings.
 
     L.A. hit into two inning-ending double plays, left the bases loaded in the fourth and went 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position.
 
     The Dodgers dropped to 89-36, by far the best record in the majors. They still own a 21-game lead in the NL West with a magic number of 16.
 
     Elsewhere in the majors:
 
     - The Red Sox still enjoy a 4 1/2-game lead over the Yankees in the AL East after winning in Cleveland. Drew Pomeranz struck out nine while yielding only two hits over 5 1/3 innings of the Red Sox's 6-1 victory over the Indians. Boston took control with a four-run ninth as Rafael Devers scored on a passed ball, Brock Holt hit an RBI double and Eduardo Nunez followed with a two-run homer.
 
     - The Indians' lead in the AL Central stays at 4 1/2 games over Minnesota after the Twins absorbed a 4-3 loss to the White Sox. Tim Anderson won it with a walk-off single in the ninth, one inning after Chicago tied it on consecutive doubles by Leury Garcia and Yoan Moncada. Jorge Polanco homered for the fourth straight game and drove in two runs for the Twins.
 
     - The Yankees crushed Detroit for the second straight night as Gary Sanchez, Didi Gregorius and Chase Headley belted solo homers in a 10-2 romp in Detroit. Sanchez drove in three runs and Ronald Torreyes went 4-for-4 to back Luis Severino, who struck out eight over 6 2/3 innings. New York has outscored the Tigers 23-6 in the first two games of the series.
 
     - Mike Montgomery tossed four-hit ball over six scoreless innings as the Cubs thumped the Reds, 9-3 to move 3 1/2 games ahead of second-place Milwaukee in the NL Central. The Cubbies broke it open in the fourth on Kyle Schwarber's three-run blast and Tommy La Stella's two-run shot. Chicago coasted to its fifth consecutive win despite ninth-inning homers by Joey Votto, Eugenio Suarez and Scott Schebler.
 
     - Jarrett Parker hit a tiebreaking, two-run double in the seventh inning to lead the Giants to a 4-2 win over the Brewers in San Francisco. Buster Posey and Carlos Moncrief provided sacrifice flies as the Giants took the rubber match of the three-game series. Pinch-hitter Stephen Vogt slammed a solo homer in the ninth for the Brewers.
 
     - Rookie Luke Weaver fanned 10 over seven shutout frames to pitch the Cardinals past the Padres, 6-2. Kolten Wong had three hits and scored three times as St. Louis won for just the third time in nine games since an eight-game winning streak. The Redbirds remain 4 1/2 games off the NL Central lead.
 
     - The Astros had dropped nine straight to the Nationals until Alex Bregman's three-run homer sparked Houston's 6-1 verdict over Washington. Jake Marisnick and Max Stassi also homered to back Mike Fiers, who allowed one run and four hits over seven innings for the AL West leaders. The Nats continue to pace the NL East by 13 1/2 games over Miami.
 
     - Houston's division lead is back up to 12 1/2 games over the Angels, who were 7-5 losers to the Rangers in 10 innings. Rougned Odor lifted a tiebreaking, sacrifice fly to ignite the Rangers' three-run 10th. Adrian Beltre and Robinson Chirinos each finished with three hits, a solo homer, two RBIs and two runs scored as Texas kept the Angels a half-game behind the Twins for the second AL wild-card berth.
 
     - Mark Leiter Jr. flirted with a no-hitter and Rhys Hoskins drove in five runs as the Phillies ripped the Marlins, 8-0. Leiter's no-hit bid ended when Miguel Rojas led off the sixth with a double. Hoskins crushed a three-run homer and capped the scoring with a two-run double in the sixth.
 
     - The Royals pulled out a 6-4 win over Colorado on Eric Hosmer's three-run homer off former teammate Greg Holland in the bottom of the ninth. Holland is 0-4 with three blown saves in his last six games, yielding three homers and 12 runs over five innings. Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado homered for the Rockies, who remain a half-game behind Arizona for the first NL wild-card spot.
 
     - The Diamondbacks were 4-2 losers to the Mets as Chris Flexen gave up two runs over six innings. Michael Conforto delivered a pair of RBI singles and Dominic Smith hit a solo shot as the Mets won for only the second time in 10 games. Chris Ianetta homered for Arizona.
 
     - Kyle Seager capped his four-RBI night by launching a three-run homer while the Mariners scored five times in the eighth to beat Atlanta, 9-6. Taylor Motter put Seattle ahead with a two-run single and scored on Seager's 19th homer of the year. Motter entered the game in place of Robinson Cano (kuh-NOH'), who doubled twice before leaving in the third inning with tightness in his left hamstring.
 
     - The Orioles blew leads of 6-1 and 7-5 before knocking off the Athletics, 8-7 on Manny Machado's solo blast in the bottom of the 12th. Trey Mancini smacked a three-run homer for Baltimore before Welington Castillo and Chris Davis added round-trippers. Oakland's Matt Joyce hit a two-run shot and forced extra innings with a sac-fly in the ninth, ending Zach Britton's AL-record consecutive saves streak at 60.
 
     - Kevin Pillar slammed a solo shot in the eighth inning to bail out the Blue Jays in a 7-6 win at Tampa Bay. Toronto homered six times but blew a 5-0 lead before ending a four-game skid. Josh Donaldson, Ryan Goins, Raffy Lopez, Steve Pearce and Justin Smoak also went deep for the Jays.

     UNDATED (AP) - Rookie DeShone Kizer is Cleveland's new starting quarterback. Coach Hue Jackson has elected to go with the second-round pick from Notre Dame over veterans Brock Osweiler (AHS'-wy-lur) and Cody Kessler. Kizer has been the most consistent of the three during training camp and led the Browns to three touchdowns during his two exhibition appearances.
 
     Jackson said Kizer will start Saturday's exhibition in Tamp Bay and "is certainly positioning himself well to earn the starting job heading into the regular season." Unless he stumbles against the Buccaneers, Kizer will be the 27th different quarterback to start for the Browns since 1999.
