UNDATED (AP) -- This afternoon's baseball news has been dominated by the National League West, where there's now a three-way tie for the lead and a manager who's questioning his team's mental makeup.
Colorado has grabbed a piece of the division lead by taking the rubber match of its series with Arizona, beating the visiting Diamondbacks 4-1. Carlos Gonzalez hit a solo homer and an RBI triple to help Jorge De La Rosa improve to 8-0 lifetime against the Diamondbacks at Coors Field.
San Francisco dropped into a first-place tie by failing to complete a three-game sweep of Washington, losing 2-1 in 10 innings. Bryce Harper hit a solo homer in the sixth and scored the winning run on Ian Desmond's RBI single.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly criticized his team before the game, then benched All-Star right fielder Andre Ethier (EE'-thee-ur). Mattingly discussed his team's lack of mental toughness with the Dodgers mired in the NL West basement at 19-26.
The Dodgers responded by scoring seven runs over the first three innings of a 9-2 rout of Milwaukee. Carl Crawford and Scott Van Slyke drove in two runs each and Ramon Hernandez hit his first home run with the Dodgers.
Also in the majors this afternoon, Evan Gattis (GAT'-his) launched a grand slam and Atlanta picked up its sixth consecutive win by whipping Minnesota 8-3. B.J. Upton and Ramiro Pena also went deep as the Braves dealt the Twins their eighth straight loss.
Texas used first inning homers by David Murphy and Adrian Beltre (BEHL'-tray) for a 3-1 win over Oakland. Thirty-year old Ross Wolf picked up the win in his first major league start, allowing a run and three hits in five-plus innings.
Toronto rode Jose Bautista's bat to a 4-3, 10-inning win over Tampa Bay. Bautista was 4-for-4 with two homers and four RBIs, including the walk-off single.
Brandon Phillips provided the tiebreaking, RBI double while Cincinnati was scoring three times in the ninth to beat the Mets 7-4 and complete a three-game sweep. Phillips had a pair of RBIs, Joey Votto (VAH'-toh) belted a two-run homer and Zach Cozart went 4-for-5 with two runs scored in the Reds' 10th win in 12 games.
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Right-hander Kyle Lohse (lohsh) will miss his next scheduled turn in the Milwaukee Brewers' rotation because of irritation in his pitching elbow. Lohse signed a $33 million, three-year contract with Milwaukee a week before opening day and is 1-5 with a 3.76 ERA.
ATLANTA (AP) -- Third baseman Trevor Plouffe (ploof) has been placed on the seven-day disabled list by the Twins with a concussion. He was struck in the head by Dan Uggla's shin while breaking up an attempted double play Tuesday in a game with Atlanta. He remained down for a few minutes before walking slowly to the dugout, holding his head. During an examination for concussion-related symptoms, Plouffe showed sensitivity to light.
CHICAGO (AP) -- Former Associated Press defensive player of the year Brian Urlacher (UR'-lah-kur) says he's retiring after spending 13 seasons with the Chicago Bears. The eight-time Pro Bowler announced his retirement through social media accounts.
Urlacher was the face of the Bears' franchise and leaves as one of the game's great linebackers. In March, he and the Bears were unable to reach a contract agreement and he became a free agent.
Urlacher started 180 games from 2000 through 2012, and recorded a team-record 1,779 tackles. He has 41 1/2 sacks, 22 interceptions, 16 fumble recoveries and 11 forced fumbles. He was the AP's defensive player of the year in 2005 and helped lead the 2006 team to the Super Bowl.
Last year, he was slowed by injuries.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- San Francisco 49ers leading wide receiver Michael Crabtree has had surgery to repair a torn right Achilles tendon. Crabtree had the surgery a day after suffering the injury during an organized team activity.
Coach Jim Harbaugh would not speculate when Crabtree might return to play, but indicated that the surgery was not expected to be season ending.
The 25-year-old Crabtree had career highs last season with 85 receptions for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns for the NFC champion Niners.
MORRISTOWN, N.J. (AP) -- New York Jets running back Mike Goodson has pleaded not guilty to drug and weapons charges in New Jersey. He was arrested early last Friday along with a friend after they were found in a car stopped on Interstate 80. The men were charged with marijuana possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and weapons offenses stemming from a 45-caliber semi-automatic handgun that included a hollow-point bullet found in the vehicle.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- The Vancouver Canucks have fired coach Alain Vigneault (al-AYN' VEEN'-yoh) after the team was eliminated from the first round of the playoffs for the second straight season.
Vigneault is the the Canucks' all-time leader in coaching wins with a 313-170-57 record over seven seasons. He led the club to six Northwest Division titles, two Presidents' Trophy titles and an appearance in the 2011 Stanley Cup final.
UNDATED (AP) -- It looks like Mike Krzyzewski (shuh-SHEF'-skee) wants more gold.
A person with knowledge of the decision says the Duke coach has agreed to return as U.S. men's Olympic basketball coach for the 2016 Olympics.
Krzyzewski was originally expected to step down but instead will attempt to lead the Americans to a third straight gold medal, the person tells The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no official announcement has been made.
The Hall of Fame coach has led the Americans since 2005, winning gold at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, and the 2010 world basketball championship.
PARIS (AP) -- American Brian Baker and Mardy Fish have pulled out of the upcoming French Open. Organizers say that Baker has not recovered from a right knee operation and Fish is unfit because of heart problems. Seventh-ranked Juan Martin del Potro (wahn mar-TEEN' dehl POHT'-roh) of Argentina has pulled out as well because of a respiratory virus.
U.S. Open champion Andy Murray pulled out Tuesday because of a chronic back injury.
