SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Given a second chance due to a penalty, rookie Josh Lambo kicked a 34-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the San Diego Chargers to a 30-27 victory against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, snapping a two-game losing streak.

Lambo was wide right on a 39-yard attempt with 2 seconds left, but Cleveland's Tramon Williams was whistled for offside. Lambo then hit his third field goal of the game.

The Browns (1-3) had tied it at 27 on Josh McCown's 1-yard pass to Gary Barnidge with 2:09 to play and a 2-point conversion pass to Taylor Gabriel. That score was set up when the Browns won a challenge of McCown's 19-yard pass to Barnidge that originally was ruled incomplete.

Philip Rivers was 23 of 38 for 358 yards and three touchdowns for San Diego (2-2). McCown was 32 of 41 for 356 yards and two scores.


CINCINNATI (AP) -- A man from Springfield, Missouri, collapsed in a restroom at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday during a game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals and was pronounced dead at a hospital, a Bengals spokesman said.

The man's identity wasn't released, pending notification of his family. Bengals spokesman Bob Bedinghaus said the fan had some type of pre-existing medical issue.

Police and paramedics tried to revive the man at the stadium. He was taken to Christ Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Bedinghaus said.

The Bengals beat the Chiefs 36-21.


PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Pirates clinched the home field in the NL wild card-game, beating the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday behind J.A. Happ's stellar outing and Pedro Alvarez's long homer.

The Pirates (98-64) locked up the right to host the Chicago Cubs (97-65) Wednesday night in a winner-take-all playoff, with a victory on the final day of the regular season.

Despite having the second-best record in the major leagues, the Pirates finished second to the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Central. Pittsburgh will host the wild-card game for the third straight year after beating Cincinnati in 2013 and losing to the San Francisco Giants last season.

The Pirates had 20 straight losing seasons, the longest streak in major North American professional sports history, before their current run of postseason appearances.


CLEVELAND (AP) -- Danny Salazar finished his first season as a full-time starter on a positive note, sending the Cleveland Indians to a 3-1 win over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday in their 2015 finale.

Salazar (14-10) gave up one run 5 1-3 innings to win for just the second time in six starts. The right-hander began the season at Triple-A Columbus, a demotion that served as a wake-up call for the 25-year-old, who bounced back and tied Carlos Carrasco for the team lead in wins.

Bryan Shaw worked out of a jam in the eighth, and Cody Allen got three outs for his 34th save.

The Indians battled inconsistency all season and finished 81-80, only the second time they were above .500 after April 9th.

Boston starter Rick Porcello (9-15) came up short in his bid to hit double-digit wins for the seventh straight season. He allowed 10 hits in seven innings.


CINCINNATI (AP) -- Andy Dalton added to his streak of impressive game and big plays, throwing a 55-yard touchdown pass on the run, and the Cincinnati Bengals stayed unbeaten with a 36-21 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

The Bengals (4-0) matched the third-best start in franchise history, two wins shy of the club record.

Dalton has been the thread throughout the wins, ascending to the top of the AFC passer list. He had another spot-on day, completing 17 of 24 for 321 yards with the long touchdown pass to Brandon Tate during a scramble.

It was another rough day all around for Kansas City (1-3). Alex Smith was sacked five times, the Chiefs settled for Cairo Santos' club-record seven field goals, and the defense couldn't keep up with another one of the NFL's top passers.

SEATTLE (AP) -- Week 4 of the NFL concludes tonight in Seattle as the Seahawks host the struggling Detroit Lions.

The Seahawks got out of the gate slowly after losing to New England in Super Bowl 49. Seattle opened with a surprising loss to St. Louis and was knocked off by the Packers in a rematch of last season's NFC title game before posting a 26-0 shutout of the Bears last Sunday. A victory will even Seattle's record at 2-2 and move them within a game of the NFC West-leading Arizona Cardinals.

Little has gone right for the Lions on their way to an 0-3 start. They've been outscored 83-56 in the three games and come off a 24-12 loss at Denver. Detroit's once-mighty defense has allowed at least 24 points in each of its first three games.

Seattle will be without starting running back Marshawn Lynch after he suffered a strained hamstring last week against Chicago. However, the injury allowed rookie Thomas Rawls to run for 104 yards versus the Bears and makes him the starting running back tonight.

Lions running back Joique (joyk) Bell is out, and defensive leader DeAndre Levy is listed as doubtful with a hip injury.

The two teams haven't met during the regular season since Oct. 18, 2012, when the Lions pulled out a 28-24 victory. The Seahawks lead the overall series, 7-5.


UNDATED (AP) -- Major League Baseball's wild card games begin tomorrow night in the Bronx as the Yankees take on the Houston Astros.

The Yankees finished one game ahead of Houston for the first AL wild-card berth, but the Astros had a chance to host the game until they lost 5-3 at Arizona yesterday afternoon.

The Astros will go with staff ace Dallas Keuchel (KY'-kul), while the Yankees will counter with Masahiro Tanaka (mah-sah-HEE'-roh tah-NAH'-kah). Keuchel led the American League in victories, going 20-8 with 216 strikeouts and a 2.48 ERA. Tanaka was the Yankees' most consistent starting pitcher this season, recording a 12-7 record and a 3.51 ERA.

Houston took the season series from the Yankees 4-3, outscoring them 36-17.


NEW YORK (AP) -- Major League Baseball had mixed success in its bid to cut the length of games.

MLB said it managed to cut six minutes from the average time of a nine-inning game this season, when it adopted some speedup rules.

STATS said Monday that the season average ended at 2 hours, 56 minutes. While the average dropped to 2:53 in the first half of the season, it was back at 3:00 after the All-Star break.

Conversely, Triple-A and Double-A leagues used 20-second pitch clocks and started penalizing violators with balls and strikes. At Triple-A, the International League average dropped 16 minutes to 2:40 and the Pacific Coast League fell 13 minutes to 2:45.


UNDATED (AP) -- In case you missed yesterday's major league action, here's a look at the individual statistical champions from the National League:

-- Miami second baseman Dee Gordon led the league with a .333 average and 58 stolen bases. Washington outfielder Bryce Harper was second in batting at .330, while Cincinnati outfielder Billy Hamilton was the stolen base runner-up with 57.

-- Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado (ar-eh-NAH'-doh) took the RBI crown with 130 and tied Harper for the home run title with 42. Harper paced the circuit with 118 runs scored, a .460 on-base percentage and a .649 slugging average.

-- Cubs ace Jake Arrieta was the NL victory leader with 22, but Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke (GRAYN'-kee) had the best winning percentage after finishing 19-3. Greinke posted a league-best 1.66 ERA, while Arrieta was second at 1.77.

-- Clayton Kershaw cracked the 300-strikeout barrier, finishing with 301 after fanning seven over 2 2/3 innings yesterday. Runner-up Max Scherzer had 276, including 17 in Saturday's no-hitter against the Mets.

-- Pittsburgh's Mark Melancon (meh-LAN'-sehn) topped the league with 51 saves, three more than Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal.

Over in the American League:

-- Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera was runaway winner of the batting title at .338, 18 points higher than Boston's Xander Bogaerts (BOH'-gahrts).

-- Baltimore first baseman Chris Davis homered twice yesterday to finish with a league-best 47, three more than former teammate Nelson Cruz of Seattle.

-- Davis was second in the AL with 117 RBIs. Toronto third baseman Josh Donaldson paced the circuit with 123 RBIs and was tops with 122 runs scored while ending up in a third-place tie with 41 home runs.

-- Houston second baseman Jose Altuve (al-TOO'-vay) was the stolen base champ with 38, 10 more than Kansas City's Lorenzo Cain.

-- Astros hurler Dallas Keuchel (KY'-kul) finished with a league-high 20 victories and was second to Blue Jays lefty David Price with a 2.48 ERA. Price logged a 2.45 earned run average with the Jays and Tigers.

-- The AL strikeout leader was Chris Sale, who set a White Sox record for lefties with 274.

-- Tampa Bay's David Archer was second in strikeouts with 252, while teammate Brad Boxberger led the league with 41 saves.


ZURICH (AP) -- A Swiss court has rejected an attempt by one of the imprisoned FIFA officials to be released on bail for medical reasons.

The Federal Criminal Court didn't name the official. Six men remain in custody in Switzerland after being arrested in May on American charges while in Zurich for the FIFA Congress.
