CINCINNATI (AP) -- Andy Dalton sneaked in for a touchdown on Cincinnati's opening drive, then came out of the game as a precaution with a sore neck on Saturday night during a 21-10 preseason victory over the Chicago Bears.

The Bengals (2-1) were looking for a lot more out of their starting offense after a three-turnover performance during a loss at Tampa Bay. Dalton threw two interceptions in that one.

He completed all six of his passes during a 16-play, 77-yard drive that consumed 9 minutes, 11 seconds. Dalton finished it with a sneak from inside the 1-yard line, and was kept on the sideline after that because his neck hurt.

Bengals quarterbacks completed their first 13 passes against the Bears (2-1), who again failed to get a touchdown out of their starting offense. Chicago's offense has managed five field goals and no touchdowns in the preseason.


CLEVELAND (AP) -- Yan Gomes' eighth-inning grand slam capped a five-run rally and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Los Angeles Angels 8-3 on Saturday night.

Gomes homered to center on the first pitch from Joe Smith (4-4) for his first career grand slam, lifting Cleveland to its fourth straight win.

Carlos Santana's RBI double broke a 3-all tie and sent Los Angeles to its seventh loss in nine games. The Angels are 2 1-2 games behind Texas for the second AL wild card.

Bryan Shaw (3-2) pitched 1 1-3 scoreless innings for Cleveland.

Smith entered the game to start the eighth but didn't retire a batter, allowing five runs, four hits and an intentional walk.

The game was delayed by rain for 38 minutes in the bottom of the third.


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Joey Votto put the Reds ahead with a two-run home run in the ninth inning and the Cincinnati Reds came back to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 12-9 Saturday.

Trailing 9-8, Votto hit his 25th homer of the year off Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez (0-3), whose streak of 35 consecutive saves dating back to last season was broken. The Reds added two more runs when Todd Frazier, who hit his 30th homer in the fifth, scored on a passed ball and Tucker Barnhart hit an RBI single.

Aroldis Chapman pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his 25th save in 27 chances. J.J. Hoover (6-0) got the win.

The win ended the Red's four-game losing streak, and the team has won twice in its last 15 games.

Keyvius Sampson pitched 3 2-3 innings for Cincinnati, giving up six runs on seven hits.

Scooter Gennett tied a career high with four hits and drove in three runs for Milwaukee.


CINCINNATI (AP) -- Quarterback Andy Dalton scored on a keeper that completed Cincinnati's opening drive against the Chicago Bears on Saturday night, then left the game with a sore neck.

Dalton had players piled on top of him after his 1-yard touchdown dive. He got up and spiked the ball, then came to the sideline. The Bengals announced that he had a neck injury. Dalton walked along the sideline with his helmet off, but didn't go for treatment.

Backup AJ McCarron took over at the start of the next series for Dalton, who was 6 of 6 for 52 yards on the Bengals' 16-play touchdown drive. It was an encouraging showing for Dalton, who threw two interceptions at Tampa Bay on Monday night.

UNDATED (AP) -- Baseball fans in Toronto were wondering what Edwin Encarnacion (en-kar-nah-see-OHN') would do for an encore after hitting three home runs and driving in nine runs on Saturday. He answered with his 30th home run of the season as the Jays completed a three-game sweep of the Tigers with a 9-2 win.

Russell Martin and Kevin Pillar each hit a two-run shot for Toronto, which leads the majors with 184 home runs. Mark Buehrle (BUR'-lee) allowed two runs in six-plus innings to improve to 14-6 on the season. The Jays, who lead the Yankees by a game and a-half in the American League East, improved to 21-5 in August.

In other baseball:

-- The Yankees kept pace with the Blue Jays with a lopsided 20-6 win over the Braves in Atlanta. The attack was led by Jacoby Ellsbury who hit a three-run home run and Chase Headley and Stephen Drew who each added a two-run shot. The win gave the Yankees a three-game sweep. The U.S. flag at Turner Field flew at half-staff and a moment of silence was observed before the game in memory of Gregory K. Murrey, a season ticket holder who died after falling from the upper deck to the lower-level seats Saturday.

-- Matt Carpenter, Brandon Moss and Mark Reynolds all hit home runs, Yadier Molina drove in two and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the San Francisco Giants 7-5. Jason Heyward added three hits and drove in a run for the NL Central-leading Cardinals, who've won seven of eight.

-- Michael Cuddyer (kuh-DY'-ur) hit a tiebreaking single in the seventh inning and the NL East-leading New York Mets stopped their five-game home skid, averting a sweep by beating the Boston Red Sox with a 5-4 win. For the Sox David Ortiz lined his 494th home run, moving past Lou Gehrig and Fred McGriff for 27th place on the career list.

--Jayson Werth homered and drove in three runs as the Nationals rallied past the Marlins 7-4.

Nats' starter Stephen Strasburg left the game in the fourth inning and was replaced by Doug Fister, who got the win. Jonathan Papelbon pitched around two hits in the ninth for his 22nd save. The Nationals remain 5 1-2 games behind the Mets in the NL East as they hit the road for a three-game series at St. Louis

-- Brandon Guyer and Kevin Kiermaier homered for the Tampa Bay Rays in a 3-2 win over Kansas City. Xavier Cedeno got the win in relief while Brad Boxberger pitched the ninth for his 32nd save. The AL Central-leading Royals lost for only the sixth time in 23 games.

-- Cleveland's Abraham Almonte hit his first career grand slam and Josh Tomlin worked into the eighth inning as the Indians completed a three-game sweep of the Angels 9-2. The win was Cleveland's fifth straight and leaves the team three games under .500.

-- Ryan Braun homered and Wily Peralta (WIH'-lee peh-RAHL'-tah) pitched seven innings to lead the Brewers over Cincinnati. Peralta held the Reds to one run and seven hits in a battle of teams fighting to stay out of the National League Central cellar.

-- James Shields pitched seven innings for his first road win since May in pitching San Diego to a 9-4 win over the Phillies. Shields got a lot of support as the Padres hit three home runs. The right-hander was 0-4 with a 5.63 ERA in his previous eight road starts since his last win away from Petco Park on May 24.

-- Jorge De La Rosa pitched into the seventh inning before being ejected, and Ben Paulsen hit a two-run triple as the Colorado Rockies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-0.

-- Ervin Santana struck out 10 to earn his first home win of the season and Eduardo Nunez and Miguel Sano homered as Minnesota survived a ninth-inning rally by Houston to beat the Astros 7-5.

-- Rookie Tyler Saladino drove in the winning run with a single in the 11th inning and the Chicago White Sox rallied to beat the Seattle Mariners 6-5.

-- Derek Holland struck out every Baltimore batter at least once while throwing a three-hitter for his eighth career shutout, leading the Texas Rangers over the Orioles 6-0 to complete a three-game sweep. Holland finished with 11 strikeouts.

---- Oakland erupted with three runs in the 11th inning to beat Arizona 7-4. Marcus Semien's two-run single broke the tie.

Tonight's game has the Cubs and Dodgers wrapping up a three-game series in Los Angeles. The home team won the first two games of the series. The Cubs grabbed an early 2-0 lead on Kris Bryant's two-run homer.

The Dodgers start the night with a four-game lead over the second-place Giants in the National League West while the Cubs lead the Giants by five games in the race for the second National League wildcard berth.

UNDATED (AP) -- New York Jets rookie defensive lineman Leonard Williams, the team's first-round draft pick, has a muscle strain behind one of his knees. Williams was injured in the first half of the Jets' 28-18 preseason victory over the Giants Saturday night. The injury isn't expected to be a long-term situation.

In other NFL doings:

-- Rams running back Tre Mason, the likely starter while Todd Gurley rehabs from knee surgery, has been ruled out of the preseason finale with a right hamstring injury. Coach Jeff Fisher says that Mason, the primary starter last season, probably would be questionable for the opener Sept. 13 against the Seahawks.

--Browns coach Mike Pettine (PET'-ihn) says that rookie running back Duke Johnson is following the NFL's protocol on head injuries after sustaining a concussion in Saturday's win over Tampa Bay. Pettine says he doesn't know when Johnson will return and wouldn't say if former Baltimore back Ray Rice is a possibility.

-- San Francisco linebacker Ahmad Brooks will not practice this coming week with the 49ers, who sent him away from the team after he was charged with misdemeanor sexual battery Wednesday.


SONOMA, Calif. (AP) -- Scott Dixon captured a fourth IndyCar championship by winning the season finale to snatch away the title from Juan Pablo Montoya, the Colombian sensation.

Montoya led the points from the season-opening race right until the final lap Sunday. But he finished the race in sixth, which allowed Dixon to tie him in the standings.

Dixon was awarded the title based on wins. Sonoma Raceway was his third victory, while Montoya had only two.

Montoya's day was made difficult on lap 39 when he hit Team Penske teammate Will Power. It sent him to pit lane for repairs and he was mired in the middle of the pack for the bulk of the race.


UNDATED (AP) -- The U.S. Tennis Association says Maria Sharapova (shah-rah-POH'-vah) has pulled out of the U.S. Open on the eve of the tournament because of a leg injury. It's the second time in three years that the 2006 champion has withdrawn from the year's final Grand Slam event.

Sharapova has not played a match since losing to Serena Williams in the Wimbledon semifinals in July. She withdrew from hard-court tournaments in Toronto and Cincinnati in August, citing a right leg strain.

The winner of the FedEx championship gets a $10 million annuity.
