THUNDERSTORMS FOR TODAY

Flash Flood Watch in Effect, Western and Central Ohio

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect for Western and Central Ohio because some of today’s storms could produce locally-heavy rain and cause some quick flooding. These storms have also produced high winds, hail, and a few tornado warnings. Central and Eastern Ohio are included in the “Slight Risk” category for severe weather today. The cold front pushing all those storms will move east of the area later today and we’ll begin to dry out tomorrow.

BBA-TIGERS-INDIANS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- David Price bounced back from an alarming start and Miguel Cabrera homered twice, hitting one of Detroit's three homers off Cleveland's Corey Kluber, as the Tigers rolled to a 12-1 win on Monday to slow the Indians' climb in the standings.

Price (13-10) gave up one run and eight hits in seven innings. The left-hander was coming off a troubling loss to New York in which he allowed nine consecutive hits in one inning and eight runs over two. Price called it "probably the worst game I've ever had in my life."

But he was more like himself against the sleepy Indians, who had won six of seven to get within 3 1/2 games of first in the AL Central.

Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the first inning off Kluber (13-9) and Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez connected for consecutive shots in the third. Cabrera homered again in the eighth off rookie Bryan Price.

REDS MOVES

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Reds plan to transfer right-hander Homer Bailey to the 60-day disabled list on Tuesday, ending his chances of pitching again this season.

Bailey hurt his right elbow and went on the 15-day disabled list Aug. 16. The Reds initially expected to have him back in September.

The Reds were off on Monday before opening a three-game series in Baltimore. They plan to call up 10 players before the game, including right-handed reliever J.J. Hoover.

They also expect to add right-hander Carlos Contreras, right-hander Daniel Corcino, infielder Jake Elmore, left-hander David Holmberg, catcher Tucker Barnhart, first baseman Donald Lutz, outfielder Yorman Rodriguez, outfielder Jason Bourgeois and left-hander Ryan Dennick.

BENGALS BEGIN

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Receiver Marvin Jones walked through the Bengals' locker room on Monday still wearing that protective white boot on his left foot.

He's one of the few casualties of a favorable training camp.

Jones broke a bone in his foot but will miss only the first few weeks of the season. The defending AFC North champions are ready to start on Sunday in Baltimore at close to full strength.

The Bengals are trying to reach the playoffs for the fourth straight season, something they've never done. They're also aiming to end the sixth-longest playoff drought in NFL history: no postseason wins since 1990. They're 0-5 in the playoffs under coach Marvin Lewis.

TENNIS-U.S. OPEN

NEW YORK (AP) -- Roger Federer looks to get back to the U.S. Open quarterfinals tonight, after his fourth round loss last year. The 17-time major champion takes on Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut in the first meeting between the two.

Women's quarterfinal play begins today, including a meeting between 10th seed Caroline Wozniacki (KEHR'-oh-lyn wohz-nee-AK'-ee) and No. 13 Sara Errani (ehr-AH'-nee) after Federer's match tonight.

The top-ranked Bryan brothers try to stay on course for their 100th doubles title when they play in the quarterfinals. Bob and Mike haven't drop a set as they try for a record 16th Grand Slam tournament title.

Serena and Venus Williams also are in doubles action.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- There's a top-notch pitching match-up on tap in Los Angeles tonight where the Dodgers entertain Washington in a meeting of National League division leaders.

Clayton Kershaw takes a 16-3 mark and 1.73 ERA to the mound for Los Angeles, both are tops in the majors. The Nationals go with 12-5 Doug Fister who is 0-2 with a 3.86 ERA in his last three starts. Kershaw and Fister ranked one-two in winning percentage in the National League among pitchers with at least 15 decisions.

The Pirates and Cardinals continue their key NL Central series in St. Louis tonight. The Cardinals took sole possession of first place in the division for the first time this season last night. St. Louis goes with right-hander Adam Wainwright who's in search of his 16th win of the season. He's 1-2 with a 1.61 ERA in four previous starts against Pittsburgh. The Pirates go with lefty Jeff Locke who is 6-3, but 4-0 in his last five starts.

Sliding Milwaukee will try to snap a six-game losing when they take on the Cubs tonight. The Brewers have managed just 13 runs during a skid that has dropped them a game back of St. Louis. Milwaukee is holding onto a 1 1/2 game lead over Atlanta for the last wildcard spot in the National League.

The major league-leading Angels are back in action after having Labor Day off. They open a series in Houston where interim manager Tom Lawless will make his debut for the Astros. He was named to replace the fired Bo Porter yesterday. The Angels are coming off a four-game sweep of division rival Oakland that extended their winning streak to six games and opened a five-game lead over the Athletics in the AL West.

There is a full 15-game major league schedule tonight.

GOLF-RYDER CUP

VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) -- European captain Paul McGinley has picked veterans Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood along with first-timer Stephen Gallacher as his wild-card selections for the Ryder Cup.

That left former No. 1 Luke Donald off the team after he was on the winning side in each of his four Ryder Cup appearances. But he has struggled for form this year after making changes to his swing. McGinley admitted that Donald wasn't expecting to be left off the team and was disappointed.

Gallacher's eighth top-10 finish in 2014 made him tough to pass up.

Europe will try to hold onto the Ryder Cup from Sept. 26-28 at Gleneagles, Scotland.

U.S. captain Tom Watson will name his wildcard picks tonight.
