NEW YORK (AP) -- Stork yes, streak no. Zack Greinke's (GREHN'-keez) shutout pitching streak ends at 45 2-3 innings. He had been slated to start Friday as the Dodgers faced the Mets in New York. But Greinke flew home to Los Angeles Thursday night, as his wife was about to give birth. They welcomed little Bode Nicholas into the family. Greinke rejoined the team over the weekend. His streak ended yesterday when the Mets scratched out a run in the third. Greinke says his trip home "wasn't as distracting as you would think." The Mets went on to beat the Dodgers 3-2 in 10 innings.

The buyer gets a certificate to present to the new parents. Once the child turns 16, the certificate can be redeemed for a lifetime license. The current annual license fee is $46.
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- It's minty fresh, as far as research goes. A Michigan State University researcher is heading a $5 million study of the genetic structure of the mint family of plants. Mints include the spices basil, oregano, rosemary and thyme. They also include spearmint and peppermint. Lead researcher Robin Buell says relatively little is known about mints. The researchers hope the study will lead to the development of everything from new medicines to fragrances. The study is funded by the National Science Foundation.

The development would include a common building for use as a kitchen or laundry room. City Planner Patty Noll calls the idea an interesting concept.
