Crawford, Mariners walk off over Tigers in 10th

J.P. Crawford singled home the winning run with one out in the 10th inning as the Seattle Mariners defeated the visiting Detroit Tigers 3-2 Sunday afternoon.

Dylan Moore led off the bottom of the inning with a double down the right field line off Tigers right-hander Jose Cisnero (0-2). An out later, Crawford hit a fly ball that fell in shallow center field, with Moore sliding home headfirst before the throw from JaCoby Jones could reach catcher John Hicks.

Left-hander Roenis Elias (4-2) pitched a scoreless inning for the victory. The Mariners won their fifth in a row and sent the Tigers to their sixth successive defeat.

Seattle's Domingo Santana tied the score at 2-2 in the bottom of the eighth with a two-out solo homer to left field on an 0-2 pitch from right-hander Joe Jimenez. It was Santana's 20th home run of the season.

The Tigers spoiled a strong start from left-hander Matthew Boyd, who was born in the Seattle suburb of Mercer Island. Boyd pitched 6 1/ 3 innings, allowing one run on three hits with three walks and 10 strikeouts.

Neither team had a baserunner in the first three innings.

The Tigers took the lead on Niko Goodrum's solo homer to right-center field, his 10th, off left-hander Tommy Milone with one out in the top of the fourth.

The Mariners put runners at first and third with one out in the bottom of the inning on singles by Mallex Smith and Domingo Santana before Boyd struck out Tim Beckham and Tom Murphy to end the inning.

Detroit added a run in the fifth, though it missed a chance to do more damage. With one out, Christin Stewart walked, and Hicks lined a single to left. Harold Castro then grounded a run-scoring single into right to make it 2-0. Gordon Beckham singled to load the bases, but Milone got Jones to ground into an inning-ending double play.

The Mariners put two runners on in the seventh, as Beckham drew a leadoff walk and Austin Nola walked an out later. Kyle Seager's run-scoring double down the right field line spelled the end for Boyd.

Milone, who came on after Matt Wisler opened with two perfect innings, allowed two runs on six hits, striking out five in five innings.

    Fact, along with Trump, is on trial in the Senate

    WASHINGTON — “The truth is there,” Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., said at the opening of the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, a statement repeated and paraphrased countless times by the seven House impeachment managers, who have treated the case against Trump as self-evidently true based on the facts they have gathered. Now they just have to convince Republicans.

    ‘Fox & Friends’ Desperately Tries to End Unhinged Giuliani Interview, Repeatedly Fails

    President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani showed up on the president's favorite morning program on Friday—and apparently didn't want to leave. A day after Giuliani claimed on Twitter that he was about to go public with evidence that will reveal the “Biden Family Enterprise made millions by selling public office” when Joe Biden was vice president, the former New York City mayor sat down on Fox & Friends' curvy couch for what can generously be described as an unhinged, rambling, off-the-rails performance. Giuliani, whose involvement in the Ukraine scandal is at the heart of the president's impeachment, continually left the hosts of the Fox News slack-jawed as he prattled on and bulldozed right through their efforts to keep him from incriminating and implicating himself.

    The student argued that pro-lifers were actually going to cause suffering because if a baby was permitted to live, things might go wrong and the child could end up in foster care. The student's conclusion was that we both need to end life in the womb and quit focusing on abortion until, apparently, all other problems in the world are solved. My question to her was one I've asked many people: Is it upsetting that the American Diabetes Association doesn't fight cancer, or that the American Cancer Association is not trying to cure every life-ending disease?

    Sluggish storm to keep dumping snow over Midwest

    A slow-moving storm already responsible for dumping more than half a foot of snow on parts of Missouri and Iowa will continue to produce fresh powder over a portion of the Midwest as it sluggishly drifts eastward through Saturday. The storm became better organized late this past week as it managed to attach to the upper part of the atmosphere. Rather than remaining weak and taking a swift eastward track, spreading snow over huge swath from the Plains to the Northeast, the storm matured and stalled over the Mississippi Valley for a time.

    Damaged By Drone Strike: Suleimani's Sainthood Is Now Being Questioned

    In the wake of Washington's assassination of former Quds Force commander Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, Arab Shi'a desires and interests across the Middle East are under a microscope. Have they shifted their protest slogans from opposing Iran to denouncing the United States? Americans should not assume that wide-angle television images of Shi'a protests in Iran calling for the downfall of the Great Satan reflect Shi'a sentiment across Arab societies.

    Chinese Uighurs in Saudi face impossible choice

    His eyes brimming with tears, a Uighur student in Saudi Arabia holds out his Chinese passport -- long past its expiry date and condemning him to an uncertain fate as the kingdom grows closer to Beijing. The Chinese mission in Saudi Arabia stopped renewing passports for the ethnic Muslim minority more than two years ago, in what campaigners call a pressure tactic exercised in many countries to force the Uighur diaspora to return home. Half a dozen Uighur families in Saudi Arabia who showed AFP their passports -- a few already expired and some approaching the date -- said they dread going back to China, where over a million Uighurs are believed to be held in internment camps.

    Trump complains his impeachment defense has a lousy time slot

    If there is one thing Donald Trump fears, it's lousy ratings. Since being elected president, in fact, Trump has tweeted about “ratings” exactly 100 times, according to the Trump Twitter Archive, the most recent coming Friday, on the eve of his defense team's opening testimony in his impeachment trial. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave in to pressure from members of his own party to adjust the trial's timetable to give House Democrats three days to make their case for removing Trump from office, pushing the opening arguments by the president's lawyers to the weekend.

    ‘On life support’: Buttigieg's struggles with black voters threaten his candidacy

    When Pete Buttigieg holds “big rally type events” in South Carolina, “it's mostly white folks showing up,” he acknowledged ruefully Thursday night. Buttigieg's low standing with black voters has been a long-running theme, and as he and his campaign argued that he simply wasn't well-known enough, it is one he has worked to correct. Over the past month and a half, he has invested more money advertising in South Carolina, where a majority of Democrats are African American, than any of the non-billionaire Democrats running for president.

    New Trump Rule Requires U.S. Officials to Weigh Pregnant Visa Applicants' Medical Needs

    The Trump administration issued a new rule on Thursday instructing United States consular officials to deny pregnant women visas unless they can prove “to the satisfaction of the consular officer” either that they are not traveling to the U.S. to give birth, or that they have a legitimate medical reason to give birth in the country. The administration says the new provision is an attempt to cut down on what's known as “birth tourism,” or when women come to the U.S. specifically to give birth so that their children gain American citizenship. But critics say the new rule may be deeply flawed.

    China is Expanding into the Indian Ocean—Here Are Five Things the Indian Navy Can Do About It

    For decades, the Indian Navy has been the dominant regional power in the Indian Ocean, and has even boasted a carrier aviation capability that was nearly unique in Asia. But as outlined in a report by the Center for New American Security (CNAS), the growth of Chinese military power in the last two decades has dramatically eclipsed India's own attempts to modernize and expand its forces—particularly in the maritime domain. This is problematic due to New Delhi's tense relations with Beijing since a 1962 border war.

    It was billed as a rally for Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign. With the Vermont senator trapped in Washington DC by the impeachment hearings, Ocasio-Cortez was fronting for him at the University of Iowa on Friday evening in the last days before the Iowa Democratic caucuses. Much of the crowd had already made up its mind to back Sanders, which was just as well because the New York congresswoman gave a 26-minute speech without once mentioning the man she was ostensibly there to promote.

Weather conditions had already twice delayed the inaugural takeoff of the plane, which sports blue and white company colors and is emblazoned with the Boeing name.
