BREWERS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jason Marquis ended Cincinnati's long streak of clutch-hitting futility with a run-scoring single, and slumping Jay Bruce homered and drove in three runs on Monday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 9-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Reds ended a three-game losing streak by beating the worst team in the majors, one that's trying everything to get going. Manager Ron Roenicke left slumping Ryan Braun out of the lineup on Monday to change things up.

All it led to was another loss that dropped the Brewers to 4-16.

Marquis (2-1) had an RBI single during a four-run second inning that snapped the Reds' 0-for-20 streak with runners in scoring position.

REDS-BAILEY

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Reds put starter Homer Bailey on the 15-day disabled list on Monday night with a sprained ligament in his right elbow, the same one he had surgery on last September.

Bailey was limited during spring training while he completed his comeback from surgery on the forearm where it attaches to the elbow. He made two starts, throwing 92 pitches in a 5-2 loss at St. Louis and 79 pitches in a 4-2 loss at Milwaukee.

Bailey is 0-1 with a 5.56 ERA. His next scheduled start was Thursday at Atlanta.

The Reds recalled right-hander Carlos Contreras from Triple-A Louisville. Contreras made 17 relief appearances last season, going 0-1 with a 6.52 ERA.

ROYALS-INDIANS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Alex Gordon, Mike Moustakas and the Kansas City Royals kept AL Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber winless this season, beating the Cleveland Indians 6-2 Monday night.

Kluber (0-3) gave up six runs, four of them earned, and 10 hits in 6 1-3 innings. After going 18-9 last year, he hasn't won in five starts and has a 4.24 ERA.

Gordon drove in two runs, and had a go-ahead double in the sixth. Moustakas had four hits, including an RBI single in the seventh, and is 11 for 25 lifetime against Kluber.

The Indians committed a season-high three errors and have lost seven of 10.

Jason Vargas (2-1) gave up two runs in five innings.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The Chicago at Baltimore game scheduled for tonight has been postponed in the wake of Monday's rioting in the streets of Baltimore. No makeup date has been announced.

The street violence also forced the postponement of Monday night's game at Camden Yards.

The team says it made the decision after consulting with Major League Baseball and state and local officials.

Baltimore public schools were closed today and the mayor has imposed a 10 p.m.-to-5 a.m. curfew, beginning tonight.

There's an excellent pitching matchup tonight in Los Angeles as the Dodgers entertain their long-time rivals from San Francisco. On the mound for the home team will be former Cy Young Award winner and National League MVP Clayton Kershaw against last fall's World Series star Madison Bumgarner. Neither is off to a great start this season as each is 1-1 with an earned run average above four.

Surprise, Houston is now the hottest team in baseball. The Astros have won their last four games and tonight continue their series against the Padres in San Diego.

The team with the best record continues to be another surprise club as the Mets are 15-5, sitting on top of the National League East. The New Yorkers are in Miami this evening.

The rest of tonight's schedule has a full complement of games.

NBA PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Houston's Rockets hope to advance to the second round of the NBA Playoffs tonight. The Rockets are playing host to Dallas in the fifth game of their best of seven first round series with a 3-1 lead. The Mavericks kept their season alive with a 121-109 blitzing of the Rockets in Game 4 on Sunday. If the Mavs can win tonight's game the sixth game in the series would be played in Dallas Thursday.

Tonight's other game is being played in Los Angeles as the Clippers and Spurs square off in the fifth game of their Western Conference series. They've split the first four games with each team winning once on the opponents' floor. The sixth game is slated for Thursday in San Antonio.
