Pro sports briefs: Sharks swoon sends them to sixth seed

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Justin Williams scored in the third period, Jonathan Quick made 23 saves, and the Los Angeles Kings beat San Jose, 3-2, on Saturday night to push the Sharks down to the sixth seed in the Western Conference playoffs.

T.J. Galiardi and Logan Couture scored for the Sharks, who will begin their ninth consecutive postseason appearance at third-seeded Vancouver after losing three of their final four including this season finale.

The Kings will begin their Stanley Cup title defense at fourth-seeded St. Louis, which sneaked past Los Angeles and San Jose in the last week.

Slava Voynov and Kyle Clifford also scored and Brad Richardson had two assists for the Kings, who played without suspended captain Dustin Brown.

Scutaro’s error costs Giants in extra innings

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Yonder Alonso scored the winning run when San Francisco second baseman Marco Scutaro couldn’t come up with Nick Hundley’s grounder, lifting the San Diego Padres to an 8-7 victory over the Giants on Saturday night.

Alonso reached base with his third double of the game, went to third on Jedd Gyorko’s single and scored on Scutaro’s miscue. The loss is the Giants’ fourth straight, and their third extra-inning defeat in four games.

San Diego trailed 5-0 before rallying for six runs in the fourth inning. Alonso and Chris Denorfia each had two-run doubles.

Sergio Romo (1-2) took the loss.

Joe Thatcher (1-0) pitched the 12th inning giving up two hits for the win.

A’s lose for the eighth time in nine games

OAKLAND (AP) — Nick Markakis and Adam Jones hit back-to-back home runs in the fourth inning, Chris Tillman pitched six innings for his first win of the season and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Oakland Athletics, 7-3, on Saturday.

Josh Donaldson matched his career high with four hits and two RBIs. The A’s have lost four straight and eight of nine.

Oakland starter A.J. Griffin (2-2) allowed only five hits in seven innings but gave up two home runs for the second straight start.

Nate McLouth also homered for Baltimore, which is 3-0 on its 11-game road trip and in position for its first four-game sweep in Oakland since 1987.

Tillman (1-1) scattered seven hits with seven strikeouts and two walks. He also had to bat in the seventh inning after an injury to catcher Taylor Teagarden forced the Orioles to abandon their DH. He struck out.

River Cats rally late for win

WEST SACRAMENTO — With his team trailing by two runs in the bottom of the eighth, Michael Taylor hit a two-run homer to tie the game then, two batters later, Luke Montz hit a go-ahead solo shot to give the Sacramento River Cats a 6-5 win over Salt Lake on Saturday night at Raley Field.

The Bees got out to an early lead, scoring twice in the top of the first inning. The advantage didn’t last long, however, as the Cats scored two runs of their own in the bottom half when, after a double-steal from Yoenis Céspedes and Grant Green, Michael Choice delivered a two-run single.

Salt Lake took the lead again in the second and held it until Taylor came to the plate in the eighth inning. Shane Peterson led off that frame with a double, allowing Taylor to step up to the plate and drive the first pitch he saw over the left-field wall. After Daric Barton flew out to right field, Montz put his team ahead with a solo home run to left.

River Cats reliever Hideki Okajima came on in the ninth and struck out the side in order to close out his team’s 6-5 win.

Céspedes finished 0-for-2 with a walk, a run and a steal in his third rehab appearance of the season with Sacramento.
