ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Conor Gillaspie hit a go-ahead home run off Corey Kluber and the Los Angeles Angels snapped a six-game losing streak, beating the Cleveland Indians 5-4 Monday night.

Garrett Richards (11-8) tied a career high with 11 strikeouts in 7 2-3 innings. Huston Street got the last three outs for his 26th save in 29 attempts, and his first since becoming the 27th member of the 300-save club on July 22.

Gillaspie connected for a two-run drive in the sixth. The Angels added another run later in the inning for a 5-3 lead.

Kluber (6-12) gave up five runs and 10 hits in 5 2-3 innings, and left with a 3.60 ERA this season.


ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- The Cleveland Indians have put All-Star second baseman Jason Kipnis on the 15-day disabled list because of chronic inflammation in his right shoulder.

The Indians sent their leadoff hitter back to Cleveland to be examined by team doctors before the start of a series Monday night against the Los Angeles Angels.

Kipnis leads the American League with 132 hits, and is batting .326 with six home runs and 39 RBIs in 101 games.

The Indians recalled infielder Jose Ramirez from Triple-A Columbus. They also optioned left-hander Michael Roth to Triple-A and recalled lefty Kyle Crockett.


CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox recalled outfielder Trayce Thompson from Triple-A Charlotte before Monday night's game with the Tampa Bay Rays.

Thompson takes the roster spot of right-hander Scott Carroll, who was optioned to the minors on Sunday. The White Sox had been playing one outfielder short since J.B. Shuck (left hamstring strain) was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday.

Thompson, 24, was hitting .260 with 13 home runs, 39 runs batted in and 53 runs scored for Charlotte this season.

Thompson is the son of former NBA player Mychal Thompson, who played 13 seasons with the Portland Trail Blazers, San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers. One brother, Klay, currently is a member of the NBA champion Golden State Warriors, and another, Mychal Jr., formerly played with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

His father, his brothers and his mother, Julie, were expected to attend Monday's game in anticipation of his major-league debut. Thompson wasn't in the starting lineup.


TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Call him the real-life Crash Davis.

Mike Hessman, an infielder for Triple-A Toledo in the Detroit Tigers' system, became the career home run leader for U.S.-based minor leagues Monday night, hitting his 433rd in the seventh inning of a game against Lehigh Valley.

Davis was the character played by Kevin Costner in the movie "Bull Durham" who set the minor league record for homers.

Hessman reached the actual mark in style, hitting a grand slam to break a tie on the career list with Buzz Arlett.

According to the Society for American Baseball Research, Hector Espino hit 484 minor league home runs, but he hit most of them in the Mexican League, which is not part of the affiliated minor league system.

The 37-year-old Hessman has played 109 games in the major leagues for Atlanta, Detroit and the New York Mets. He has not appeared in the majors since 2010. He's hit 14 homers in the majors, batting .188 overall.

NEW YORK (AP) -- The NFL Players Association has released a transcript of Tom Brady's June testimony in the deflated balls controversy. In the 457-page document filed in Manhattan federal court on Tuesday, Brady denies tampering with - or telling anyone to tamper with - footballs in the AFC championship game.

His testimony occurred in an arbitration hearing before NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL'). Goodell last week decided to uphold a four-game suspension of Brady issued by a subordinate.

The league asked federal Judge Richard Berman last week to find that the NFL acted properly. Berman has ordered Brady and Goodell to appear before him next week. He has strongly urged they settle.

Brady was suspended after it was found that the Patriots had used deflated footballs in the AFC title game.


DETROIT (AP) -- Dave Dombrowski is out as president and general manager of the Detroit Tigers and been replaced by Al Avila.

The move comes with the Tigers at 51-54 and 11 1/2 games out of first place in the AL Central.

Dombrowski joined the Tigers as team president in 2002. He presided over Detroit's AL-record 119 losses in 2003. But he built a roster that reached the postseason five times, losing the World Series in 2006 and 2012.

Avila has served as Dombrowski's top assistant since 2002 and also worked under him with the Marlins.


UNDATED (AP) -- Toronto pitcher Aaron Sanchez has been suspended for three games and manager John Gibbons for one for their roles in Sunday's beanball war between the Blue Jays and Kansas City Royals. Major League Baseball also fined Sanchez an undisclosed sum for intentionally throwing at Alcides (al-SEE'-dehs) Escobar with warnings in place during the top of the eighth inning of Toronto's 7-6 win. Sanchez contends his pitch just got away.

Gibbons is missing tonight's home game against Minnesota. He was disciplined for coming back on the field in the eighth inning after being ejected in the seventh.

Also in the majors:

-- Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is back on the disabled list, this time with an oblique injury suffered while batting in Monday's game against San Francisco. He is batting .284 with 14 homers and 45 RBIs this season, missing 30 games with a wrist injury.

-- The Cubs have activated left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada (see-YOH'-shee WAH'-dah) from the 15-day disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Iowa. Wada had been out since June 23 with left deltoid inflammation and was on a rehab assignment with Iowa.

-- Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin (mahr-TEEN') has been optioned to Triple-A Round Rock. Martin leads the major leagues with 13 outfield assists, but he was hitting .220 with five home runs and 25 RBIs in 94 games.

-- The Padres have reinstated right-handed pitcher Ian Kennedy from paternity leave and optioned right-hander Leonel Campos to Triple-A El Paso. Kennedy is slated to start Wednesday against Milwaukee, five days after the birth of his fourth daughter.


KAZAN, Russia (AP) -- American Katie Ledecky has lowered her own world record by 2.23 seconds in winning the 1,500 freestyle at the world swimming championships. The 18-year-old led all the way and touched in 15 minutes, 25.48 seconds. That improved her mark of 15:27.71 set in the preliminaries of the non-Olympic event on Monday.

Americans also had success in diving. The winner of the gold in the 20-meter high diving competition was Rachelle Simpson, who beat defending champion Cesilie (SEHS'-ihl-ee) Carlton for the top spot.

This was high diving's second appearance at the world championships, after Carlton won on the 2013 debut in Barcelona.


DETROIT (AP) -- Former Detroit running back Mel Farr has died at age 70.

Farr spent his entire seven year career with the Lions and was the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year in 1970 before finishing with just over 3,000 yards rushing. He finished seventh in the 1966 Heisman Trophy voting while playing for UCLA.

The club says his son has confirmed that Farr had died.


SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly says running back Greg Bryant will not play for the Irish this season after failing to meet expectations.

Kelly previously had suspended Bryant for the first four games of this season for violating team rules. Kelly said Tuesday Bryant is permitted to practice, but will not occupy a spot on the 105-man roster.

Bryant was second on the team in rushing last season with 289 yards and led the team with 5.4 yards per carry.


LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Floyd Mayweather Jr. has announced that his next and final bout will be against Andre Berto on Sept. 12. The welterweight title fight will be available on pay-per-view but doesn't figure to be nearly as lucrative as the reported $220 million Mayweather earned for his May 2 fight with Manny Pacquiao (PAK'-ee-ow). The fight is the last in a six-bout deal that Mayweather has with the Showtime network, and the boxer has said repeatedly he will retire when the deal is finished.

Mayweather has won all 48 of his fights and will be a heavy favorite. Berto is 30-3 and has lost three of his last six fights.
