INDIANS-WHITE SOX

CHICAGO (AP) -- Danny Salazar tossed six scoreless innings and was backed by first-inning home runs from Nick Swisher and Mike Aviles, leading the Cleveland Indians past the Chicago White Sox 5-2 on Thursday night.

Salazar was coming off his worst start of the season in which he allowed five earned runs in 4 2/3 innings against Texas on May 16. He recovered to help the Indians take three of four from Chicago while winning their third straight for the first time this season.

Salazar (5-1) walked three, but struck out eight while giving up five hits to hand Chicago its first series loss at home.

John Danks (2-4) allowed five runs and six hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Chicago's Jose Abreu went 1 for 4 and extended his hitting streak to 16 games. Tyler Flowers hit a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth off Bryan Shaw to avoid the shutout.

MANFRED-ROSE

NEW YORK (AP) -- Pete Rose's role at the All-Star game in Cincinnati will be determined by Major League Baseball and the Reds after they determine what other obligations the banned career hits leader has.

Rose began work as a studio analyst for Fox this month. The network will broadcast the game, which is being played in Rose's hometown on July 14.

Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said Thursday that MLB is talking to the Reds about Rose's involvement.

Rose agreed to a lifetime ban in 1989 after an MLB investigation concluded he bet on Reds' games while managing the team. He has applied for reinstatement, but Manfred has not given a timetable for a decision.

HAWKS-CARROLL INJURY

ATLANTA (AP) -- DeMarre Carroll's agent says an MRI on Carroll's left knee showed no structural damage, and Carroll is hoping to play for the Hawks by Friday night's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Mark Bartelstein told The Associated Press on Thursday that Carroll has only a knee sprain and "maybe a little" bone bruise.

Carroll celebrated the news on his Twitter feed.

Bartelstein says Carroll will receive treatment for the soreness Thursday and Friday in hopes of playing against Cleveland in Game 2.

Carroll's knee appeared to buckle as he was driving to the basket with about 5 minutes left in the 97-89 loss to the Cavaliers. Carroll couldn't put pressure on the leg as he was helped off the floor.

B10-OHIO ST-INDIANA

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Scott Donley's three-RBI double broke a tie in the eighth inning and sixth-seeded Indiana beat Ohio State 5-3 Thursday in an elimination game of the Big Ten tournament.

Kyle Hart pitched six scoreless innings for the defending Big Ten champion Hoosiers (33-21). Hart allowed six hits and no runs or walks. Indiana will play the loser of the Michigan vs. Iowa game on Friday.

The Buckeyes (35-20) didn't get on the board until Nick Sergakis' RBI groundout scored Ronnie Dawson in the seventh inning. Craig Nenning followed with an RBI single to tie it 2-2.

Brad Hartong gave Indiana a 1-0 lead with a solo home run in the fourth inning.

Seventh-seeded Ohio State has lost five-straight games after losing to Iowa in their tournament opener on Thursday.

NBA PLAYOFFS-CAVALIERS/HAWKS

ATLANTA (AP) -- Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving is sitting out Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Atlanta Hawks tonight after having his ailing left knee examined by Dr. James Andrews.

Irving has been dealing with tendinitis in his left knee, as well as a strained right foot from an opening-round sweep of the Boston Celtics.

Irving scored only 10 points and sitting out the final eight minutes of the Cavaliers' victory in Game 1. The Cavaliers list Irving as questionable for Game 3 in Cleveland on Sunday night.

Matthew Dellavedova started at point guard, with LeBron James expected to assume an expanded role handling the ball.

Meanwhile, Hawks forward DeMarre Carroll was a surprise starter after spraining his left knee in the series opener. Carroll participated in a shoot-around that was closed to media earlier Friday. He then took shots and drove to the basket on the team's practice court about an hour before the game.

An MRI showed no structural damage. Carroll was diagnosed with a sprain and bone bruise.

NFL-BRADY APPEAL

NEW YORK (AP) -- Several people with knowledge of the decision tell The Associated Press that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') will not withdraw from Tom Brady's appeal hearing.

The New England Patriots quarterback is fighting the four-game suspension he received for his alleged role in the use of deflated footballs in the AFC championship game. The union asked Goodell to remove himself from the case because it said he lacked impartiality and that Goodell would be called as a witness.

No date has been set for the appeal. The collective bargaining agreement calls for it to be heard within 10 days. However, both sides can agree on delaying a hearing, which would need to be held by Wednesday without any requested delays.

MLB-BREWERS

ATLANTA (AP) -- Major League Baseball says Milwaukee Brewers reliever Will Smith plans to appeal his eight-game suspension for having a foreign substance on his right arm during last night's game in Atlanta.

The lefty was ejected for having rosin and sunscreen on his right forearm in the seventh inning of a 10-1 loss to the Braves. He will be allowed to pitch until after his appeal is heard.

NFL-COWBOYS

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- The Dallas Cowboys and cornerback Orlando Scandrick have agreed to a one year contract extension worth $9.5 million, which pushes the total value of his deal to $20 million through 2019.

The 28-year-old Scandrick was Dallas' best cornerback last year but was set to make $1.5 million this season. Under the new deal he will get $4 million this year.

PGA-CROWNE PLAZA INVITATIONAL

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Kevin Na is the leader at the midway mark of the PGA's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Na began the round in a four-way tie for the lead following Thursday's 64 with a 4-under 66. He's two strokes ahead of Ian Poulter and three in front of Boo Weekley, each of whom owned a piece of the lead through 18 holes.

Jordan Spieth (speeth) also had a share of first before carding a 3-over 73 that puts him seven shots back.

COLLEGE ATHLETICS-NORTH CAROLINA

UNDATED (AP) -- North Carolina has received a notice of allegations from the NCAA connected to the school's academic fraud scandal. In a statement the school's Chancellor and athletic director said they are reviewing the "lengthy" notice and will release it publicly "as soon as possible" after redactions to comply with privacy laws.

The NCAA reopened a probe into academic misconduct last summer connected to the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies department. The focus was courses which were often treated as independent studies that required no class time and one or two research papers.

An eight-month investigation stated that an office administrator, not a faculty member, typically handed out assignments, and then high grades, after only a scan of the work.

The fraud case has led to several lawsuits from ex-UNC athletes against the school or NCAA, and the school also faces questions from its accreditation agency.

SCHUMACHER UPDATE

GLAND, Switzerland (AP) -- Michael Schumacher's manager says the seven-time Formula One champion is still improving, almost 17 months after suffering severe head injuries in a skiing accident. Schumacher won a record seven Formula One titles and 91 races.

He was injured when skiing during a French Alps vacation.
