BBA-INDIANS-MARINERS

SEATTLE (AP) -- Corey Kluber struck out 13 in seven innings to win his third straight decision, Jason Kipnis continued his hot May with two hits and two RBIs, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Seattle Mariners 5-3 on Thursday night.

Cleveland won for the eighth time in 10 games, inching closer to .500 after struggling the first six weeks of the season. Kluber, the reigning AL Cy Young winner, improved to 3-0 with 50 strikeouts and two walks in his last four starts.

Kluber (3-5) gave up a pair of home runs to Mike Zunino in the third and Dustin Ackley in the sixth, but Seattle was able to mount little otherwise. Kluber earned his first road victory of the season.

James Paxton (3-3) gave up eight hits and three earned runs before leaving with two outs and a 3-0 count against Brandon Moss in the fifth due to a finger injury.

INDIANS MOVES

SEATTLE (AP) -- The Cleveland Indians have placed right-handed reliever Scott Atchison on the 15-day disabled list because of a sprained left ankle.

The Indians made the roster move before opening a four-game series in Seattle on Thursday night. Cleveland will also be without infielder Carlos Santana for at least a few days after he was placed on the paternity list.

Atchison was 1-1 with a 5.74 ERA in 19 relief appearances for the Indians this season. This is his fifth career stint on the disabled list.

To take the open roster spots, the Indians selected the contract of outfielder Jerry Sands and recalled right-hander Austin Adams from Triple-A Columbus. Sands has split the season between Cleveland and Columbus appearing in nine games in April with the Indians.

Adams started the season with Cleveland before being sent down. Adams appeared in three games with the Indians and 10 games at Columbus.

WARRIORS-THOMPSON

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson is feeling better and is on track to return for the NBA Finals next week after taking a knee to his head from Trevor Ariza that caused "concussion-like symptoms."

That's according to Thompson's father, former NBA player Mychal Thompson. He told The Associated Press on Thursday night that his son's energy was up and his appetite was back, but he still needs to pass the league-mandated concussion protocol.

Thompson said his son threw up a couple of times and he had to drive him home after the Warriors eliminated the Houston Rockets in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals on Wednesday night.

The Warriors initially said Thompson did not show any signs of a concussion and could've come back into the game. The team later said he began not feeling well after the game and showed "concussion-like symptoms."

NHL PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

NEW YORK (AP) -- The seventh and deciding game between the Rangers and Lightning is being played this evening in New York. To the winner goes a spot in the Stanley Cup finals while the loser heads to the offseason to meditate on what went wrong.

The series got this far because the Rangers beat the Lightning in Tampa three nights ago.

Coming up tomorrow night is Game 7 in the Western Conference final as the Ducks entertain the Blackhawks. Chicago forced a Game 7 in that series with a win Wednesday night in Chicago.

BASEBALL-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The defending American League champion Kansas City Royals are in a bit of a funk right now, having lost their last four games. Consequently their ownership of the Central Division lead has been put in jeopardy. The combination of their losses and five straight wins by the Twins has forced a tie between the two teams with records of 28-18.

This afternoon the Royals are playing the Cubs in Chicago in the only day game. The Twins are home to the Blue Jays this evening.

The winningest team in baseball is St. Louis and tonight the Cardinals are home to the Dodgers. It's a game of two first-place clubs as the Cards top the National League Central with a record of 31-16 while the Dodgers are first in the NL West with 28 wins and 18 defeats.

In San Diego this evening James Shields of the Padres goes for his seventh win of the season against no losses. He may have his hands full as the Pirates have won their last seven games.

The rest of tonight's card has the Rays in Baltimore, the Phillies home to the Rockies, Miami in New York to play the Mets, the Reds entertaining Washington and red-hot Bryce Harper. He has 13 home runs this month and 28 runs batted in. The Red Sox are at Texas while the White Sox play in Houston, Milwaukee is home to Arizona, the Tigers play the Angels in Anaheim, Oakland is hosting the Yankees, Cleveland remains in Seattle and the Giants are home to the Braves.

FRENCH OPEN

PARIS (AP) -- Roger Federer has breezed into the fourth round of the French Open. The winner of 17 Grand Slam titles eliminated a 23-year-old Bosnian player ranked 88th in the world 6-4, 6-3, 6-2. The 33-year-old Swiss star, who is seeded second at the tournament, won his only French Open title in 2009.

Five-time Grand Slam champion and defending French Open winner Maria Sharapova (shah-rah-POH'-vah) is facing a longtime rival today. She is going up against Samantha Stosur, who has won just two of the 16 matches the two have played. Sharapova's dominance over Stosur includes a 4-0 record on clay courts, having beaten her in the fourth round on the way to her second French Open title last year.

NASCAR-FEDEX 400

DOVER, Del. (AP) -- The qualifying for Sunday's FedEx 400 Sprint Cup race in Dover, Delaware, is this afternoon at Dover International Speedway. Defending champion Jimmie Johnson has a series-high three victories this season while defending series champion Kevin Harvick has two. Carl Edwards finished first in last week's Coca-Cola 600, the longest race of the season.

PGA-BYRON NELSON

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Second-round play in the PGA's Byron Nelson Classic is getting a late start today because of heavy rain last night. Nearly five inches of rain fell on the already rain-soaked course in Irving, Texas.

The leader at the end of the first round yesterday was Steven Bowditch, who shot a bogey-free 8-under 62. Masters champ Jordan Spieth (speeth), who hails from the Dallas area, is seven shots off the lead.
