CINCINNATI (AP) — Manager Joe Maddon's move was so wacky that even his own players laughed. And when it worked better than anyone could have imagined, the Cubs were celebrating again.

Kris Bryant singled home the tiebreaking run in the 15th inning, and Maddon used three pitchers in left field while Chicago beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-2 on Tuesday night in the longest game of the season for both teams.

With the Cubs out of position players, relievers Travis Wood and Spencer Patton (1-0) alternated between left field and the mound in the 14th inning, which ended with Patton getting the final out. Wood then finished it off with reliever Pedro Strop in left.

Spokesman Shahzada Farhat says the attacks took place late Tuesday in Quetta, the capital of impoverished Baluchistan province. No one has immediately claimed responsibility and Farhat says they are investigating who was behind the latest "acts of terrorism."

Baluchistan is Pakistan's largest province and the scene of low-scale insurgency for the past several years.

Small separatists groups in the region often attack police and security forces to pressure the government to get more wealth from resources like natural gas and oil extracted from the province.

CHICAGO (AP) — Just when the White Sox thought they had started to turn the corner, Jose Quintana got back on the mound and the lineup was mostly silent once again.

Quintana served up a pair of homers by Brian Dozier and Chicago had just six hits in a 4-0 loss to the last-place Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.

The White Sox had won two straight series after a 10-26 stretch, but it was shut down by Kyle Gibson (1-5) and two relievers. They have scored a total of 10 runs in Quintana's eight losses this year.

"Yeah, you got to pick it up in your division," manager Robin Ventura said. "But any time we got something going, it got snuffed out.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California land officials dropped their longstanding environmental objections to the state's last nuclear power plant and signed off Tuesday on a deal to close the Central Coast facility many years earlier than its operators had previously sought.

The State Lands Commission approved a lease allowing Pacific Gas and Electric Co. to continue operating the Diablo Canyon twin-reactor plant through August 2025, a date the company and environmental groups agreed to last week. Members turned down a proposed environmental impact assessment, which can take years, in part to meet the earlier termination date.

PG&E President Tony Earley told reporters last week the utility will save more money closing Diablo

The center-left Labor Party opposes the conservative government's plan to hold a plebiscite this year to allow the public a direct say on whether Australia should give legal recognition to same-sex marriage.

Opposition leader Bill Shorten confirmed a newspaper report on Wednesday, three days before the election, that he had told Christian church leaders in 2013 that he supported holding such a plebiscite.

Labor's position now is that Parliament should make the decision on same-sex marriage.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays are running out of explanations for a frustrating stretch that's dumped them into a deep hole in the AL East.

The last-place team lost for the 12th time in 13 games on Tuesday night, failing to take advantage of early opportunities to score runs and unable to stop Boston from pulling away late in an 8-2 Red Sox victory.

One night after snapping an 11-game losing streak by pounding out a season-high 18 hits in a 13-7 win, the Rays went 0 for 5 with runners in scoring position against Rick Porcello, whose ability to minimize damage during a fourth-inning jam proved to be the difference.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Long before his life story became the toast of the Great White Way, Alexander Hamilton was a hit in Albany.

The Times Union of Albany reports (http://bit.ly/298uOwW ) New York's capital is finally capitalizing on the "Hamilton" Broadway musical craze with a lineup of attractions focusing on the founding father who got hitched in the upstate city and spent time in the area.

Hamilton married Elizabeth Schuyler, daughter of wealthy landowner Philip Schuyler, in 1780 at the Schuyler family's Albany mansion, now a state historic site.

The site is offering guided and self-guided tours that focus on Hamilton's life in Albany.

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders says he'll try to block Senate consideration of a bill that would require nationwide labeling of food with genetically modified products, but with a less stringent labeling requirement than the one included in Vermont's law.

Individual senators can put a hold on legislation, blocking it from coming up for debate unless backers can muster 60 votes. The Vermont independent says he prepared to resort to that tactic.

Sanders' comments come just days before Vermont is slated to become the first state to require labeling of genetically modified food.

A bill that would require Ohio hospitals and providers to cremate or bury such remains passed the Senate earlier this year and a similar proposal is pending in the House. Lawmakers are on summer recess and are unlikely to consider the measure until after the November election.

A Cincinnati lawyer who has represented some of Ohio's abortion clinics as they sought to remain open or challenge state rules said she thinks Monday's Supreme Court ruling could help challenge Ohio's restrictions — either in pending cases or new litigation — but she

NEW YORK (AP) — Minus slugger Carlos Beltran most of the night, the inconsistent Yankees never posed much of a threat at the plate.

Cole Hamels breezed through seven shutout innings to win his fourth consecutive start, Adrian Beltre homered off CC Sabathia and drove in three runs, and the Texas Rangers trounced New York 7-1 Tuesday.

"This homestand has not went the way we wanted it so far and we need to turn it around," manager Joe Girardi said following his team's third straight defeat.

One night after Texas rallied to win at 2:44 a.m. following a 3 1/2-hour rain delay in the ninth inning, the Rangers played with more spunk and energy than New York.

Attorneys for 68-year-old Reggie Rucker on Tuesday filed a motion in U.S. District Court saying that his July 14 sentencing should be postponed because prosecutors have demanded all medical records related to brain damage that Rucker suffered during his 12-year NFL career.

The motion also says Rucker's attorneys want their experts to evaluate the government's medical records and expert reports on Rucker when they're finally provided.
