INDIANS-PIRATES

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Michael Bourn drove in three runs, Brandon Moss homered and Trevor Bauer pitched effectively into the seventh inning as the Cleveland Indians beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 on a rainy Friday night in a game that stretched past midnight.

Bourn's two-run single in the eighth inning extended the Indians' lead to 5-2 after Cleveland loaded the bases on a walk to David Murphy and singles by Yan Gomes and Giovanny Urshela.

Moss opened the scoring with a two-run homer in the second and Bourn had an RBI double in the fourth inning to put Cleveland ahead 3-0.

The Indians won their fifth straight and snapped the Pirates' three-game win streak.

Bauer (7-5) allowed two runs and three hits in 6 1/3 innings. Cody Allen pitched a perfect ninth to complete the three-hitter and get his 16th save.

Charlie Morton (6-2) gave up three runs and four hits in six innings.

BREWERS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Carlos Gomez hit his first career grand slam and tied his career high with five RBIs, leading Milwaukee over the Cincinnati Reds 12-1 Friday night and extending their winning streak to six.

Gerardo Parra and Aramis Ramirez added solo shots for the Brewers, on their longest winning streak since taking nine in a row in April 2014. Gomez, Jonathan Lucroy and Ryan Braun had three hits each as Milwaukee matched its season high for runs and victory margin.

Mike Fiers (4-7) allowed three hits in seven scoreless innings to win for the first time in four starts since June 12. He didn't allow a runner past first base until Marlon Byrd reached second on Fiers' throwing error in the seventh.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The fireworks came early for the Nationals in their morning Fourth of July start.

Michael A. Taylor homered on the first pitch of the game from Madison Bumgarner and Washington went on to beat San Francisco 9-3. Bryce Harper hit a two-run homer before Bumgarner could record his first out of the game. Tyler Moore drove in three runs.

Washington starter Stephen Strasburg was taken out of the game in the fourth inning after appearing to injure his left side. It was his third start since coming off the disabled list. He gave up no runs and one hit. Tanner Roark came out of the bullpen and gave up two runs in 4 1/3 innings of relief.

Felix Hernandez tries again to earn his 11th win of the season when the Mariners visit Oakland this afternoon. The 10-4 right-hander allowed one hit in six innings in his last start before leaving the game with heat cramps.

The Mets and Dodgers meet in L.A. with a good pitching match-up scheduled. Los Angeles goes with Zach Greinke (GREHN'-kee) who is 6-2 with a major-league leading 1.58 ERA. Matt Harvey gets the call for the Mets with a 7-5 mark and 0.46 ERA in his last three starts.

There are nine day games on the 15-game schedule to help celebrate the Fourth.

MLB-TIGERS-CABRERA

DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit star Miguel Cabrera has been placed on the 15-day disabled list and is expected to miss least six weeks with a calf injury.

The two-time AL MVP pulled up while breaking for second during last night's win over Toronto. An MRI showed a strain of his calf muscle, but no injury to his Achilles tendon.

Cabrera is leading the AL with a .350 batting average and has 15 homers and 54 RBIs.

TENNIS-WIMBLEDON

LONDON (AP) -- Defending champ Petra Kvitova (kuh-VIHT'-oh-vuh) didn't make it to the second week at Wimbledon.

The second seed was knocked out in the third round by Jelena Jankovic (yeh-LAY'-nuh YANK'-oh-vihch) 3-6, 7-5, 6-4. Kvitova looked to be in command in the match, leading 4-2 in the second set, but faltered. Since reaching the fourth round in 2010, Jankovic had lost in the first round three times and made the second round in 2013.

In women's play, Madison Keys has become the fourth American to move into the fourth round with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Germany's Tatjana Maria.

Caroline Wozniacki (wohz-nee-AK'-ee) cruised into the fourth round by beating Camila Giorgi 6-2, 6-2.

In men's play, Roger Federer stayed on course for a run at an eighth Wimbledon title with a 6-4, 6-4, 6-7, 6-2 win over Sam Groth. That moved the second seed into the second week of the tournament.

John Isner's serve let him down in a loss to reigning U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic (CHIHL'-ihch) 7-6, 6-7, 6-4, 6-7, 12-10. The big-serving Isner double-faulted on match point to lose the third round match that was suspended Friday because of darkness.
