CLEVELAND (AP) -- Carlos Santana capped and eight-run third inning with a three-run homer, leading the Cleveland Indians past Texas 12-3 on Wednesday to end the Rangers' seven-game winning streak.

Carlos Carrasco (6-4) allowed only Robinson Chirinos' solo homer in the fifth while pitching eight sharp innings. The right-hander held Texas to five hits and struck out eight.

Texas starter Colby Lewis (4-3) allowed 10 runs and 11 hits in 2 2-3 innings. He was chased in the third when the Indians sent 12 men to the plate.

The lopsided loss ended Texas' seven-game winning streak.

Josh Hamilton singled in the seventh for his first hit since returning to the Rangers on Monday, but was thrown out by left fielder Mike Aviles trying for a double. Hamilton is 1 for 11 in three games after being acquired from the Angels on April 27.


CLEVELAND (AP) -- Josh Hamilton singled in the seventh inning Wednesday for his first hit since returning to the Texas Rangers.

Hamilton, hitless in his first nine at-bats since returning Monday, lined a hit down the left field line off Cleveland's Carlos Carrasco. The AL MVP in 2010 was thrown out trying for a double by Indians' left fielder Mike Aviles.

Hamilton, who flied out in his first two at-bats, crashed face-first into the left-field wall catching Jason Kipnis' line drive in the first inning. Hamilton briefly remained on the ground, but stayed in the game.

Hamilton had a self-reported alcohol and cocaine relapse last offseason. He was a five-time All-Star in his first stint with Texas and led the Rangers to the World Series in 2010 and 2011.


CINCINNATI (AP) -- Nolan Arenado hit a three-run homer on Wednesday, extending his hitting tear, and Kyle Kendrick pitched into the eighth inning for his first win since opening day, leading the Colorado Rockies to a 6-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

The Rockies won for the fourth time in five games, taking two of three in the series. The Reds have lost 10 of 11, a streak that started when one of the home run smokestacks at Great American Ball Park caught fire during a loss to the Giants on May 15.

Arenado hit his 10th homer in the first inning off Mike Leake (2-4) and added a single. In the past four games, the third baseman is 9 for 16 with three homers, one triple and 10 RBIs.

CHICAGO (AP) -- Tom Thibodeau (THIH'-buh-doh) has suddenly become one of the most successful former coaches in NBA history.

Thibodeau has been fired after five seasons with the Chicago Bulls. He led the team to a 255-139 record and a playoff appearance in each season with the team. Apparent friction with management led to the change, along with a second-round exit in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Thibodeau's .647 winning percentage ranks seventh in NBA history among coaches with at least 200 games. He led the Bulls to the top seed in the playoffs his first two seasons and was the NBA's Coach of the Year in 2011, the same year Derrick Rose became the league's youngest MVP.


MIAMI (AP) -- There's a chance the Miami Heat's one-time Big Three will be reduced to one.

A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that contract talks between Dwyane (dwayn) Wade and the Heat are at "an impasse" and the three-time NBA champion is preparing himself for possibly leaving the team this summer. Wade could opt out of his current contract, which calls for him to make about $16.1 million next season. The person said Wade has not decided anything, including whether he will opt out


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Adrian Peterson is expressing his frustration over criticism he is receiving while staying away from the voluntary portion of the Minnesota Vikings offseason.

Peterson will have his $12.75 million salary for 2015 guaranteed if he's on the roster for Week 1. But a person close to Peterson tells The Associated Press the 30-year-old also wants more of the money on the back end of his deal guaranteed.

Peterson said on Twitter that he knows "hundreds of players" that wished the team would have honored their contracts as he is being asked to do. Coach Mike Zimmer said yesterday that Peterson has two choices: he can either play for the Vikings next season or not play at all.


UNDATED (AP) -- The Baltimore Orioles and Chicago White Sox split a pair at Camden Yards today.

Chris Sale dominated the White Sox's 3-2 victory in the opening, striking out 12 while limiting the Birds to four singles and no walks in 7 2/3 innings. The game was scoreless until Melky Cabrera and Adam LaRoche hit RBI doubles in the sixth.

LaRoche and Adam Eaton homered in the nightcap, but the Orioles knocked off the Pale Hose 6-3. Chris Davis hit a RBI double after homering for the third time in two games during the opening. Rookie Mike Wright picked up his second win, allowing three runs and six hits in five innings before the Baltimore bullpen followed with four hitless frames.


UNDATED (AP) -- The NHL coaching carousel continues. The Devils' former coach will be behind the Sharks' bench, while the Penguins' ex-coach will take over the Sabres' roster.

The Sharks have announced the hiring of coach Peter DeBoer (deh-BOHR') as the replacement for the departed Todd McLellan, who is the new coach of the Oilers. The decision to hire DeBoer ends a search that started when the team announced April 20 that McLellan would not be back for an eighth season.

DeBoer has coached seven seasons in the NHL with the Panthers and Devils. His best season came when he led New Jersey to the 2012 Stanley Cup finals before falling to Los Angeles.

Dan Bylsma (BYLZ'-muh) has secured a new job as coach of the Sabres. He coached the Sidney Crosby-led Penguins to win the 2009 Stanley Cup championship and captured three division titles in 5 1/2 seasons before he was dismissed last spring. He takes over a franchise coming off consecutive last-place finishes.

Bylsma replaces Ted Nolan, who was fired last month.

The Devils currently are the league's only team without a head coach.


WASHINGTON (AP) -- Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom has had arthroscopic hip surgery and the team expects him to be ready for next season. Backstrom led the NHL with 60 assists and was sixth in points with 78 this season, playing in all 82 games. He became the team's career assist leader and is fifth in points.

The 27-year-old had three goals and five assists in 14 playoff games for Washington, which was eliminated by the New York Rangers in the second round.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos are searching for someone to watch quarterback Peyton Manning's back after left tackle Ryan Clady tore his left ACL and will likely be out for the season.

Clady hurt his knee during a voluntary practice Wednesday, an injury that no one thought was really all that serious. Clady was setting up to pass block when his knee buckled. He even took another snap before pulling himself out of practice because his knee was sore.


PARIS (AP) -- Top-seed Serena Williams has advanced to the third round of the French Open, but she needed three sets to do it. Williams rallied to beat German Anna-Lena Friedsam 5-7, 6-3, 6-3.

Joining Williams among the Day 5 winners is men's top-seed Novak Djokovic (NOH'-vak JOH'-kuh-vich), who beat Gilles Muller 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 despite playing with a right leg injury. Djokovic took a medical timeout before the last game of the second set, getting his upper leg and lower back massaged by a trainer.

Also advancing are sixth seed and nine-time winner Rafael Nadal (rah-fay-ehl nah-DAHL'), No. 3 seed Andy Murray and women's fourth seed Petra Kvitova (kuh-VIHT'-oh-vuh).

Women's fifth seed Caroline Wozniacki (wohz-nee-AK'-ee) was upset by Germany's Julia Goerges 6-4, 7-6.


IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Steven Bowditch is the leader through one round of the Byron Nelson Classic.

Bowditch fired a bogey-free, 8-under 62 for a two shot advantage over Jimmy Walker. Bowditch matched his low round on the PGA Tour.

He didn't make it to the weekend each of the past three years at TPC Four Seasons after finishing tied for 60th in his tournament debut in 2001.

James Hahn and Ryan Palmer were three strokes back.
