ANGELS-INDIANS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Abraham Almonte hit his first career grand slam and Josh Tomlin worked into the eighth inning, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 9-2 win over the slumping Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.

Almonte's fifth-inning homer off Jered Weaver broke open a close game and sent Cleveland to its fifth straight win.

Weaver (6-10) didn't get much help from his defense. Center fielder Mike Trout and right fielder Kole Calhoun lost catchable fly balls in the sun, leading to five Cleveland runs.

INDIANS-SHAPIRO

CLEVELAND (AP) -- A person familiar with the decision says Indians president Mark Shapiro is leaving the team to take the same job with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Shapiro, who has been with Cleveland since 1992, will replace Paul Beeston, Toronto's CEO and president who is retiring. The teams will make the announcement Monday, said the person who spoke Sunday night to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the sides were still working through some details.

CBSSports.com first reported the deal.

Shapiro served as Cleveland's minor league director and general manager before becoming Cleveland's president following the 2010 season. Shapiro has twice been named baseball's executive of the year.

The Indians have operated with one of baseball's lowest payrolls. That won't be the case in Toronto as the Blue Jays have pumped money into the roster, hoping to end a postseason drought dating to 1993.

INDIANS-MINORITY OWNER

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Indians owner Paul Dolan hired an investment broker several months ago to help him find a minority investor for his franchise.

Dolan secured Allen & Co., a New York-based firm, to search for a minority owner, a team spokesman confirmed Sunday. The New York Post first reported the deal on Saturday.

The Dolan family bought the Indians in 1999 from Richard Jacobs for $322 million. The club has had one of the lowest payrolls in the major leagues and attendance at Progressive Field has dropped dramatically in the past few seasons.

Dolan has said he has no interest in selling his majority controlling interest in the Indians.

Meanwhile, team president Mark Shapiro could possibly leave the team for a similar role with the Toronto Blue Jays. Shapiro served as the club's general manager from 2001-10.

NFL-MOVES

UNDATED (AP) -- Kirk Cousins has been named the Redskins quarterback for the coming season. Coach Jay Gruden says he feels "Cousins gives us the best chance to win."

Robert Griffin III was thought to have the job, but was held out of a scheduled start against Baltimore Saturday after suffering a concussion the week before in a game against Detroit.

Elsewhere;

-- The Buffalo Bills are turning their offense over to Tyrod Taylor, who has won the starting job after a three-way quarterback competition. Taylor won the job over former starter EJ Manuel, and Matt Cassel (KAS'-uhl), a 10-year journeyman who was acquired in an offseason trade with Minnesota. The Bills have released 34-year old running back Fred Jackson, who spent nine seasons in Buffalo.

-- Jacksonville has traded longtime kicker Josh Scobee (SKOH'-bee) to Pittsburgh for a sixth-round draft pick in 2016. The Steelers needed a kicker after losing Shaun Suisham (SWEE'-zam) and then Graham Hartley to preseason injuries.

-- Jaguars tight end Julius Thomas could miss multiple games to start the regular season if he requires surgery on a broken bone in his right hand. He's looking for a second opinion. Thomas was hurt in the preseason opener against Pittsburgh.

-- Denver has sent offensive tackle Chris Clark to Houston, released veteran linebacker Reggie Walker and placed rookie tight end Jeff Hauerman on injured reserved. The Clark trade for a seventh-round pick in 2016 is contingent on his passing a physical.

-- Safety Stevie Brown is back with the New York Giants. After playing for the team three seasons Brown signed with Houston as a free agent. He was released by the Texans Saturday night paving the way for a return to the Big Apple.

-- Outside linebacker and longtime special teams standout Lorenzo Alexander and veteran punter Dave Zastudil are among 11 players released by the Arizona Cardinals. The 32-year-old Alexander has played nine seasons in the NFL and was team captain for the Cardinals' special teams the past two seasons. The 36-year old Zastudil missed all but two games last season with a groin injury.

-- Steelers wide receiver Martavis (mar-TAY'-vihs) Bryant has been suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The second-year player's appeal of the suspension was denied by the league.

NFL-DEFLATGATE

NEW YORK (AP) -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady couldn't agree, so now a judge will decide the fate of "Deflategate."

Judge Richard Berman says both sides tried hard to reach a deal during a Monday morning meeting but failed.

He says he expects to rule as early as Tuesday whether Brady must serve a four-game suspension to start the season for his alleged role in using underinflated footballs during the playoffs last season.

Goodell upheld the suspension in July. The NFL Players Association wants the suspension nullified.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL-LSU

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Officials at LSU say football coach Les Miles had to go to the hospital Monday morning as a precaution after not feeling well. The 61-year-old Miles did not show up for his media luncheon afternoon and about 30 minutes after the scheduled start, the athletic director announced Miles' hospital visit.

Miles returned to LSU's football operations building early in the afternoon.

TENNIS-US OPEN

NEW YORK (AP) -- Play in the U.S. Open has begun in New York with all eyes on Serena Williams. The top-ranked player in the world is trying to become the first player since 1988 to complete a calendar Grand Slam. A tournament title for Williams would equal Steffi Graf's (grahfs) professional-era record of 22 Grand Slam singles titles.

Williams is an amazing 48-2 with a tour-leading five championships in 2015.

She begins play this evening with a match against Russian Vitalia Diatchenko.

In first round action;

-- Top-ranked Novak Djokovic (NOH'-vak JOH'-kuh-vich) made quick work of Brazil's Joao Souza 6-1, 6-1, 6-1. Djokovic didn't face a single break point and needed just 71 minutes to advance.

-- Marin Cilic (CHIHL'-ihch) opened defense of his title with a 6-3, 7-6, 7-6 win over qualifier Guido Pella.

-- Seven-time major champion Venus Williams overcame Monica Puig (PWEEG) of Puerto Rico 6-4, 6-7, 6-3. The 35-year old Williams has never lost in the opening round of the U.S. Open.

-- Seventh-seed Ana Ivanovic (ee-VAH'-noh-vich) was defeated by Dominika Cibulkova (doh-mih-NEE'-kuh see-bool-KOH'-vuh), 6-3, 3-6, 6-3.

-- Fourth-seed Kei Nishikori (kay nih-shih-KOHR'-ee) was ousted in his first round match, losing to Benoit Paire 6-4, 3-6, 4-6, 7-6, 6-4. Nishikori was the runner-up last year.
