REDS-BREWERS

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee scored three runs on two misjudged balls in the outfield by Chris Heisey, and Wily Peralta pitched seven strong innings in the Brewers' 5-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night.

Ryan Braun hit a two-run double in the third on which Heisey took a couple of steps in before retreating as the high liner went over his head. The four-year veteran with 134 career starts in left field apparently lost Carlos Gomez's high fly ball to the warning track in the fourth inning that turned into an RBI ground-rule double that made it 4-0.

Peralta (11-6) allowed three hits, including Billy Hamilton's solo homer. Francisco Rodriguez threw a 1-2-3 ninth for his 29th save.

Cincinnati's Mat Latos (2-2) gave up four earned runs and eight hits in seven innings.

INDIANS-TWINS

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Josh Willingham's tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning sent the Minnesota Twins to a 4-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night.

Kurt Suzuki had a two-run double among his three hits, Trevor Plouffe hit an RBI double and the Twins beat the Indians at home for the first time in more than 11 months.

Suzuki, a first-time All-Star selection who was the catcher for the ninth inning of the American League's victory here at Target Field last week, posted his ninth three-hit game this season. He raised his batting average to .311 and is 25 for 63 in his last 17 games.

In another All-Star game reprise, Glen Perkins pitched a perfect ninth for his 23rd save in 26 chances.

INDIANS-CABRERA

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Cleveland Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera left Monday night's game with the Minnesota Twins because of lower back spasms.

Cabrera played two innings before being taken out. There was no word from the team on exactly how he was injured.

Chris Dickerson pinch hit for Cabrera in the top of the third and hit an RBI single. He went to center field in the bottom of the inning with Mike Aviles shifting to shortstop. Cabrera struck out in his only at-bat against Twins starter Kris Johnson.

The 28-year-old Cabrera has played in 94 of 99 games this season.

BENGALS-ATKINS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Standout defensive tackle Geno Atkins and starting cornerback Leon Hall are among nine players placed on the physically unable to perform list Monday by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Atkins missed seven games and the Bengals' one playoff game last season after undergoing surgery on his right knee. He was an All-Pro in 2012 and has made two Pro Bowls.

Atkins and Hall, who started only five times last season before tearing his Achilles tendon, are eligible to come off that list anytime during the preseason. They count against the team's 90-man roster limit.

Punter Kevin Huber also was placed on PUP, along with guard Clint Boling, linebacker Marquis Flowers, receivers Ryan Whalen and Colin Lockett, defensive tackles Devon Still and Zach Minter.

MLB-BASEBALL NEWS

DENVER (AP) -- Major league batting leader Troy Tulowitzki (too-loh-WIT'-skee) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by Colorado because of a left hip flexor strain. The move is retroactive to Sunday. Tulowitzki suffered the injury in a game against Pittsburgh Saturday.

The 29-year-old All-Star shortstop is hitting .340 and is third in the NL with 21 home runs.

In other baseball news:

-- Baseball commissioner Bud Selig (SEE'-lihg) says he's "anxious" to look at the recommendations of a team of top orthopedists who are studying the uptick in elbow injuries among pitchers. A handful of experts, including Dr. James Andrews and New York Yankees team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad, are putting together a report to help baseball address the rash of reconstructive Tommy John surgeries.

-- The Yankees have acquired third baseman Chase Headley from the Padres in an attempt to add some offense to the line-up. New York sends infielder Yangervis Solarte and right-hander Rafael De Paula to San Diego. The 30-year-old Headley can become a free agent at the end of the season. He's hitting .229 with seven homers and 32 RBIs but has a .339 average since July 4. Two years ago he was the National League RBI leader.

-- The Tampa Bay Rays have placed right-handed pitcher Joel (joh-EHL') Peralta on the 15-day disabled list with an undisclosed illness.

-- The Athletics say owner Lew Wolff has agreed to a 10-year lease extension to stay in Oakland after reviewing several modifications made by the Oakland City Council. The Coliseum has hosted the A's since 1968 but the facility has recently had sewage and lighting problems.

NFL-NEWS

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Seven former professional football players are challenging a tentative class action settlement of NFL concussion claims. Their appeal echoes their previous complaints that some players won't be fairly compensated under the settlement, which would cover nearly 20,000 retired players for 65 years.

Senior U.S. District Judge Anita Brody has granted preliminary approval pending a November fairness hearing. Her approval came after the NFL agreed to remove the $765 million cap to ensure the fund doesn't run out.

The group appealing the judge's decision includes 2008 Pro Bowl player Sean Morey, now Princeton University's sprint football coach.

In other NFL news:

-- The San Diego Chargers agreed to a two-year contract extension with running back Danny Woodhead. Woodhead is coming off a career year. He had career highs of 76 catches (second on the team), 605 yards and six touchdowns.

NBA-CLIPPERS

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Los Angeles Clippers interim CEO Richard Parsons says coach Doc Rivers has told him he'll quit if Donald Sterling remains owner of the team. Parsons made the statement while testifying in a trial to determine whether Sterling's wife Shelly Sterling can sell the team for $2 billion to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

The NBA has sought to force out Sterling since soon after racist statements emerged on recordings in April.

Rivers, who is black, has said he had heard from other Clippers business employees that they didn't think they would be able to work for Sterling under the circumstances.

Sterling has denied he is a racist from the witness stand and vows he'll never sell the team, claiming he is the victim of illegally recorded conversations that invaded his privacy.

NBA-CAVALIERS

CLEVELAND (AP) --It's not clear as to how long Andrew Wiggins will be a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers but a person familiar with the negotiations says the Cavs will sign the No. 1 overall pick in the near future. Wiggins has been linked to a possible trade with Minnesota for All-Star forward Kevin Love. The person familiar with the talks says Wiggins will sign with Cleveland as early as Wednesday.

If the Cavs and Wiggins work out a deal, a trade for Love would not be able to be consummated for 30 days.

The Cavs and Timberwolves have had ongoing discussions about a trade for Love since before the draft. The Timberwolves have always insisted that Wiggins be involved in any package, a stipulation the Cavaliers have resisted.

A person familiar with the trade says the Cavaliers have sent guard Carrick Felix to Utah for three players with non-guaranteed contracts, a deal to give them more assets to go after Love.

The Cavs sent Felix a second-round pick in 2015 and $1 million to the Jazz for guard John Lucas and forwards Malcolm Thomas and Erik Murphy,

In other NBA news:

-- The Chicago Bulls say they have signed first round draft pick Doug McDermott who was last season's college player of the year. Terms of the deal involving the 6-foot-8 forward from Creighton weren't released.

-- The Golden State Warriors and swingman Brandon Rush have completed the deal they agreed to last week. The contract is for two years and about $2.5 million.
