BREWERS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jimmy Nelson won his career-best third consecutive start and the Milwaukee Brewers rode a six-run fifth inning to a 7-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday night.

Six Brewers each drove in one run as Milwaukee extended its best winning streak in more than a year to seven games. Adam Lind homered and Jean Segura had three hits, helping suddenly explosive Milwaukee has scored 47 runs in the first six games of the current road trip.

The winning streak is the Brewers' longest since they won nine straight from April 4 through April 13, 2014.

Nelson (6-8) overcame solo home runs by Marlon Byrd and Ivan De Jesus Jr. to last 5 2-3 innings. He gave up eight hits and three runs with one walk and five strikeouts.

MLS-RED BULLS-CREW

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Kei Kamara set up Ethan Finlay's two goals, and the Columbus Crew rallied to beat the New York Red Bulls 2-1 on Saturday night.

The Kamara-to-Finlay connection was a role reversal for the league leaders in goals (Kamara 12) and assists (Finlay 10).

Finlay punched in Kamara's header to give Columbus the lead in the 74th minute. The Crew (6-6-6) held on from there and moved ahead of the Red Bulls (6-6-5) in the Eastern Conference standings.

Anatole Abang put the Red Bulls in front in the eighth minute, beating goalkeeper Steve Clark with a roller inside the far post.

Finlay tied it in the 33rd, taking a flick header from Kamara, cutting back and curling a left-footed shot into the net. Clark was credited with an assist on the long ball to Kamara.

Red Bulls coach Jesse Marsch was sent off in stoppage time.

WOMEN'S WORLD CUP

VANCOUVER (AP) -- The Women's World Cup final this evening in Vancouver features a rematch of the final four years ago, the U.S. against Japan. Back in 2011 the final finished in a 2-2 tie with Japan winning on penalty kicks.

The U.S. has had great success against teams from Japan with a record of 24-1-6.

The U.S. advanced with a 2-0 win over Germany in the semifinals while Japan eliminated England 2-1.

Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, will be on hand for the championship match.

WIMBLEDON

LONDON (AP) -- There is no action today at Wimbledon. This is the annual mid-tournament day of rest. Play resumes on Monday with both of the top-seeds, Novak Djokovic (NOH'-vak JOH'-kuh-vich) and Serena Williams, in action. For Williams the fourth round match has her facing her older sister Venus. Serena tops the series 14-11.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Gerrit Cole of the Pirates is going for his 12th win of the season this afternoon as the Bucs are home to Cleveland. Cole is 11-3 with a 2.20 earned run average. He's facing seven-game winner Danny Salazar.

The Rays are hoping to put an end to their seven-game losing streak today as they play the Yankees in New York. The defeats have dropped the Rays into third place in the American League East, three games back of the first-place Yankees.

The longest winning streak in baseball is held by Milwaukee as the Brewers have won seven in a row. The success hasn't helped the Brewers cause much as they still reside in last place in the National League Central, 18 1/2 games back of the Cardinals. The Brewers are facing the Reds today in Cincinnati.

Ervin Santana is making his first start for Minnesota after serving an 80-game drug suspension. He's pitching in Kansas City against the team he played for in 2013. Santana signed a $55 million, four-year contract with the Twins in December after winning 14 games for Atlanta last season. He was penalized by MLB following a positive test for the performance-enhancing substance Stanozolol.

The rest of the schedule today has the Blue Jays in Detroit, the Red Sox home to the Astros, the Phillies in Atlanta, the White Sox hosting the Orioles, San Diego at St. Louis, the Marlins in Chicago facing the Cubs, the A's at home to the Mariners, Colorado at Arizona and the Dodgers entertaining the Mets.

NASCAR

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. is starting tonight's Sprint Cup race at Daytona International Speedway from the pole. The winner of this race in 2001 secured the pole because of his times in the first practice session on Friday.

His crew chief, Greg Ives, instructed Earnhardt to go flat-out at the start of the practice session because the rules state the field will be set by practice times if a qualifying session is canceled. When rain washed out the Saturday session, Ives proved to be a skilled weatherman.

F1-BRITISH GRAND PRIX

SILVERSTONE, Eng. (AP) -- It was another 1-2 finish for Mercedes in a Grand Prix race. This time it was the British GP in Silverstone, England, and the winner was defending series champion Lewis Hamilton with teammate Nico (NIH'-koh) Rosberg second and Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel third.
