ROCKIES-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds lost their ninth straight game Monday as Nolan Arenado homered, had three hits and drove in the tiebreaking run with a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning off Aroldis Chapman that gave the Colorado Rockies a 5-4 victory.

This is the Reds' longest losing streak since they dropped 11 straight in June 1998 under manager Jack McKeon.

Arenado had a pair of singles and a solo homer off Reds starter Jason Marquis. He then helped the Rockies pull it out against Chapman (2-3), who came in for the ninth.

Charlie Blackmon opened with a walk and took third on D.J. Lemahieu's single. Blackmon scored easily on Arenado's fly to center fielder Billy Hamilton, whose throw was off-target.

Rafael Betancourt (2-1) retired the four batters he faced. John Axford gave up a walk in the ninth while getting his seventh save in as many chances.

RANGERS-INDIANS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Josh Hamilton was hitless in his return to the majors, but reached on a key error that sent the Texas Rangers over Cleveland 10-8 Monday for their sixth straight win.

Hamilton, slowed this season by shoulder surgery, was 0 for 3 with two strikeouts and a walk, and scored a run.

The 2010 AL MVP came up with runners on first and second and two outs in the seventh inning with the score 8-all. He hit an easy tapper back to pitcher Zach McAllister, whose throw was well over the head of first baseman Carlos Santana for a two-base error.

Hamilton was traded from the Angels back to Texas in late April.

Prince Fielder hit his fourth home run in four games for the Rangers. He hit an RBI single that tied it earlier in the seventh.

The Indians had won six in a row.

NBA PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

CLEVELAND (AP) -- If Cleveland beats Atlanta tonight the Cavaliers would advance to the NBA Finals. If they lose to the Hawks the series will shift back to Atlanta for Game 5 Thursday night with Cleveland's lead cut to 3-1. In short, that sums up the importance of tonight's game.

Al Horford of the Hawks will start tonight after being ejected from the previous game for a flagrant-2 foul. The league could have suspended him but chose not to. The status of Cavaliers guard Kyrie (KY'-ree) Irving remains uncertain. The All-Star continues to suffer from tendinitis in his left knee. And then there's LeBron James. He's nursing several injuries but continues to dominate the series.

The Cavaliers got this far by winning the opening two games in Atlanta and the first game in Cleveland two nights ago.

NHL PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Tonight's NHL playoff game can be summed up this way, if Tampa wins on home ice the Lightning advance to the Stanley Cup Finals. If the visiting Rangers win they would force a deciding Game 7 Friday night in Madison Square Garden.

The series got this way by Tampa winning Games 2, 3 and 5 with the New Yorkers skating off the ice with victories in Games 1 and 4.
