BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns coach Mike Pettine insists his team is making improvements and he's not planning any major changes to a disappointing defense.

San Diego rolled up 438 yards in Sunday's 30-27 win over the Browns, who committed 12 penalties, including an offside on the final timed play, giving the Chargers a second chance to make a game-winning field goal.

Cleveland gave up 468 yards last week and missed a slew of tackles against Oakland.

Pettine had a positive meeting with his players and believes the Browns are making positive strides. He said the team is "not going to hit the panic button" after four games.

Pettine says he doesn't feel the need to get more involved with Cleveland's defense and expressed faith in coordinator Jim O'Neil.

Browns general manager Ray Farmer returned to the team Monday after serving a four-game suspension for texting to the sideline last season.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Baseball's postseason gets going tonight with the American League wild card game between the Yankees and Astros in the Bronx.

This is the Yankees' first playoff game since 2012, the team's longest drought since a 13-year absence from 1981 through the canceled 1994 postseason. The Astros are in the playoffs for the first time since winning the 2005 National League pennant.

The Astros barely won the season series from the Yankees 4-3, but they outscored New York 36-17. That included a 15-1 rout of the Yankees in the Bronx.

Houston manager A.J. Hinch sends 20-game winner Dallas Keuchel (KY'-kul) to the mound against Masahiro Tanaka. Keuchel didn't allow a run in his two starts versus the Yankees this year, going 2-0 and allowing just nine hits and one walk in 16 innings. Tanaka was rocked in his lone start against the Astros, surrendering six runs and seven hits over five innings on June 27.

Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury has been left out of the starting lineup. Ellsbury has slumped to a .220 average with five homers and 23 RBIs since the All-Star break, and the left-handed hitter would have been facing a lefty in Keuchel. Brett Gardner will move over to center, with Chris Young in left.

Center fielder Carlos Gomez is in the Astros' starting lineup and will bat sixth. He missed the Astros' final regular-season series at Arizona because of a strained left chest muscle.

The winner of the game advances to the American League Divisional playoffs with a date against the Royals in Kansas City Thursday night. KC manager Ned Yost has announced that Yordano Ventura will be his Game 1 starter. Johnny Cueto (KWAY'-toh) will pitch the second game and Edinson Volquez will start Game 3.

The National League wild card game is tomorrow night in Pittsburgh with the Pirates taking on the Cubs. It'll be a great pitching matchup as 22-game winner Jake Arrieta (ehr-ee-ET'-uh) gets the ball for the Cubs against 19-game winner Gerrit Cole.


NEW YORK (AP) -- Pitcher Matt Harvey missed the Mets' mandatory workout at Citi Field today and apologized to the team for arriving late. Harvey was not on the field as the Mets went through drills from around noon to 2 p.m., and he declined to give a reason for his absence. Mets manager Terry Collins told reporters Harvey called and said he got stuck in traffic.


MIAMI (AP) -- Ichiro Suzuki will get his chance to collect his 3,000th major league hit.

The Marlins have signed outfielder to a one-year, $2 million package after he batted a career-low .229, dropping his career average to .314. He is tied for 33rd on MLB's hits list with 2,935 after amassing 1,278 in Japan.

Ichiro turns 42 later this month.

Also in Miami, Marlins President David Samson says he regrets moving general manager Dan Jennings into the dugout. Jennings will return to his former job as general manager after an awkward 124-game stint as a first-time manager. Samson says candidates to replace Jennings in the dugout include former major league managers Manny Acta, Larry Bowa and Bo Porter.


CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cleveland Indians have shifted their front office following the departure of president Mark Shapiro (shuh-PY'-roh) to Toronto. The club has promoted general manager Chris Antonetti to president of baseball operations and named Mike Chernoff their new general manager.

Shapiro is leaving Cleveland after 24 seasons to take the same position with the Toronto Blue Jays. Antonetti had been the Indians GM for the past five years with Chernoff his assistant since 2010.
