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."

NBA FINALS

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Golden State's Klay Thompson has been diagnosed with a concussion and will not be allowed to practice until he is symptom free. Thompson was kneed in the head during the Warriors' Western Conference clinching win over Houston Wednesday night.

Thompson will be evaluated and will not be allowed back on the court until he clears the NBA concussion protocol guidelines. The Warriors open play in the NBA Finals next Thursday at home against Cleveland.

NBA-MAGIC-SKILES

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Scott Skiles is the new coach of the Orlando Magic. He replaced Jacque Vaughn who was fired in February.

The 51-year-old Skiles has spent 13 seasons as an NBA head coach at Phoenix, Chicago and Milwaukee. He has a combined 443-433 record.

Skiles was a member of the Magic's inaugural team in 1989-90 and played point guard for a total of five seasons in Orlando as part of his 10-year playing career.

Interim coach James Borrego took over the Magic after Vaughn's dismissal and went 10-20.

NBA-HOWARD

HOUSTON (AP) -- Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard has been suspended without pay for one game after getting his fourth flagrant foul point in the postseason. The foul in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals was ruled a common foul during the game, but was upgraded to a flagrant foul 1 after a review by the league office.

Howard will serve his suspension in the first game next season that he is physically able to play.

NHL PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

NEW YORK (AP) -- A spot in the Stanley Cup finals is on the line in a one-game showdown between the Lightning and Rangers in New York tonight.

The Rangers earned the home ice edge with the best record in the NHL during the regular season, but it hasn't been an advantage in the series so far. Tampa Bay has won two of the three games there, including a shutout in Game 5. Lightning goalie Ben Bishop has only given up four goals in the three games in New York.

But the Rangers have Henrik Lundqvist in the nets and the veteran goaltender has been money in Game 7s. He's won his last six with a 0.81 goals against average. The six straight Game 7 wins is an NHL record.

MLB-NATIONALS-WERTH

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Washington's Jayson Werth is out indefinitely after another test found that he broke his left wrist two weeks ago. The outfielder was hit on the left wrist by a pitch on May 16 and has been unable to swing a bat. A CT scan on Thursday revealed two small fractures.

Manager Matt Williams says there's no timetable for his return.

Werth is batting .208 with two homers and 12 RBIs.

SOCCER

ZURICH (AP) -- Sepp Blatter has been re-elected as president of FIFA (FEE'-fuh) for a fifth term. The 79-year-old earned another four-year term when Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan conceded defeat after losing 133-73 in the first round.

Blatter's re-election comes just two days after arrests and indictments of soccer officials in Switzerland and the U.S. on bribery, racketeering, money-laundering and other charges.

FRENCH OPEN

PARIS (AP) -- Second-seed Roger Federer has rolled into the fourth round of the French Open with a straight sets win on Day 6. The winner of 17 Grand Slam titles took just 1 hour, 29 minutes to advance. He's trying to add a second French Open title to his collection to go with his win in 2009.

Fourth-seed Tomas Berdych and eighth-seed Stan Wawrinka (vah-VRINK'-ah) also advanced.

Defending champ Maria Sharapova (shah-rah-POH'-vah) led the women's advance into the fourth round with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Samantha Stosur.

NASCAR-FEDEX 400

DOVER, Del. (AP) -- Denny Hamlin has won the pole for Sunday's running of the Sprint Cup race at Dover. It's his first pole of the season. Martin Truex, Jr. also earned a spot on the front row. Kyle Larson, Matt Kenseth and Daytona 500 winner Joey Logano round out the top five.

PGA-BYRON NELSON

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Jon Curran birdied five of the final nine holes on the way to a 6-under 63 and the clubhouse lead late in the second round of the Byron Nelson Classic.

Curran's 9-under total is one shot better than Cameron Percy who posted a 64.

Masters champ Jordan Spieth (SPEETH) shot a 64 and is three back.

Second-round play got 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.
