INDIANS-ASTROS

HOUSTON (AP) -- Jose Altuve had three hits to give him 209 this season and drove in two runs, leading the Houston Astros to a 3-1 win over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night.

The major league hits leader is just one hit shy of tying the franchise record of 210, set by Craig Biggio in 1998.

Cleveland's wild-card hopes continue to fade with a fourth straight loss. They entered the night five games back for the second AL wild card.

The Astros trailed by one in the third inning with runners at second and third when Altuve's single scored them both to put Houston up 2-1.

Houston starter Collin McHugh (10-9) allowed five hits and one run -- none earned -- in 6 2-3 innings, to extend his career-long winning streak to six games. He left after taking a comebacker to his left arm in the seventh.

BBN-REDS-CUBS

CHICAGO (AP) -- Anthony Rizzo capped his return to the Cubs lineup with a walk-off home run in the ninth inning that gave Chicago a 1-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night.

Rizzo had missed the last 18 games due to a back problem but drove a pitch from Pedro Villarreal (0-1) over the wall in center field. Rizzo's homer was his 31st of the season and gave Hector Rondon (4-4) the win after he tossed a scoreless inning of relief.

Travis Wood didn't get any run support and couldn't earn his ninth win of the season despite producing one of his best outings of the year. Wood threw six scoreless innings, allowed only three hits, and lowered his ERA to 4.86.

Cincinnati starter Alfredo Simon gave up five hits in seven innings.

RAVENS-NEXT STEP

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- A three-day break wasn't enough to separate the Baltimore Ravens from the Ray Rice saga, and coach John Harbaugh expects the suspended running back and domestic violence to remain topics the team and the NFL will be addressing the foreseeable future.

Harbaugh says, "We're probably not going to get away from it, and probably rightly so."

He hopes the fallout from the situation "impacts society in a good way going forward."

When last on the field, Baltimore beat Pittsburgh on Thursday night and have started preparing for Cleveland on Sunday.

But the Ravens have been in damage-control mode since releasing Rice after a video surfaced on Sept. 8 showing him striking his then-fiancee in an elevator last February.

While Harbaugh continues to answer questions about Rice, he is gameplanning for the Browns.

TITANS STUMBLE

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- So upset with himself, Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey has posted grades of his play against Dallas on the wall beside his locker. He plans to keep that as a constant reminder until he fixes those mistakes.

The Titans struggled enough in their home opener to paper much of the locker room if they follow Casey's example. They fell behind 16-0 and lost 26-10 in a game coach Ken Whisenhunt says nobody played great.

And Whisenhunt said Monday a lot of the issues were self-inflicted by the Titans (1-1).

They gave up 220 yards rushing and managed only 68 yards in the first half of a 26-10 loss to the Cowboys.

Now Tennessee hits the road starting a two-game swing at Cincinnati (2-0) on Sunday.
