KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Carlos Santana hit two more home runs, giving him six in six games, and the Cleveland Indians beat Kansas City 10-3 Sunday to end the Royals' winning streak at five.

Santana hit a pair of two-run homers. He has connected in three straight games.

Santana went 3 for 3 and reached base in all five plate appearances. He homered in a four-run fifth inning and hit another drive in ninth for his fifth career multihomer game and his second of the series.

In his past six games, Santana is 14 for 23, including three doubles and 10 RBIs.

Ryan Raburn and Yan Gomes also homered for the Indians, who had lost six straight at Kauffman Stadium.


CINCINNATI (AP) -- Doug Fister took advantage of facing the slumping Cincinnati Reds to extend the best season-opening start by any Washington pitcher in a 4-2 Nationals' win Sunday.

Fister (10-2) allowed just three hits with one walk and five strikeouts in seven shutout innings to reach 10 wins in 14 starts, one fewer than any previous Washington pitcher. Gio Gonzalez reached 10 wins in 15 starts in 2012, and Jordan Zimmerman duplicated him last season. The Nationals moved to Washington from Montreal in 2005.

Adam LaRoche drove in two runs and Anthony Rendon added an RBI single in the ninth to help send the Reds to their eighth loss in nine games since the All-Star break. They are hitting .178 (50-for-281) in that span.

Devin Mesoraco's two-run double in the ninth off Rafael Soriano allowed the Reds to avoid their 11th shutout loss. Soriano regrouped to get the final three outs for his 200th career save.


BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns linebacker Barkevious Mingo is banking on bigger being better after a rookie year that started fast than sort of fizzled.

He's been bulking up, ready to fit in with the faster and stronger NFL.

As the sixth overall pick in the 2013 draft, Mingo made an instant impact for the Browns, flying all over the field and registering a sack in each of his first three games. But just as quickly, he disappeared from the stat sheet, recording only two more sacks the rest of the season.

Mingo, who now weighs in in the high 230s, says he learned a lesson last year that will make him a better player in 2014.

UNDATED (AP) -- The Giants try to regroup tonight after being swept at home by the archrival Dodgers over the weekend.

San Francisco is 1 1-2 back of NL West leading LA heading into the opener of a series against Pittsburgh. Facing one of the best rotations in baseball, the Giants were outscored 17-4 in the weekend series. They have now lost 19 of their last 25.

The Dodgers have the day off.

The Padres and Braves get the major league schedule off to an early start with an afternoon affair in Atlanta. Converted outfielder Jason Lane makes his major league debut on the mound for San Diego. Atlanta heads into today's play just a 1 1-2 games back of Washington for first in the NL East.

The Nationals open a series in Miami.

NL Central leading Milwaukee travels to take on Tampa Bay in a series opener. The Brewers send 11-4 Kyle Lohse (LOHSH) out to take on one of the hottest teams in the major. Tampa Bay just had a nine-game winning streak ended yesterday, but is 27-12 since June 11.

There are just ten games on the major league schedule.


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Final arguments are expected today in the trial to determine whether Donald Sterling's estranged wife can sell the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for $2 billion. Lawyers for Sterling plan to argue that Shelly Sterling had no right to make the deal with Ballmer, even though Donald Sterling had given her written authority to pursue a sale.

The attorneys also say she tricked Donald Sterling into taking mental exams that found he had signs of the onset of Alzheimer's disease.

That finding set the stage for Sterling to be removed as a trustee of the Sterling Family Trust and to allow Shelly Sterling to move forward with the sale of the team.
