DIAMONDBACKS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Nick Ahmed's RBI single with two outs in the 15th inning sent the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night and kept their franchise perfect when games go really long.

Arizona is 13-0 all-time in games of at least 15 innings.

Ahmed's single off J.J. Hoover (1-8) gave the Reds their ninth loss in 10 games since the All-Star break, a slump that has dropped them below .500 for the first time since June 21. The offense has been the problem, scoring only 17 runs in those 10 games, by far the fewest in the majors.

Oliver Perez (1-1) gave up a hit and a walk in two innings. Addison Reed got his 25th save in 30 chances.

Cincinnati's Aroldis Chapman fanned the side in the ninth, extending his major league record for a reliever to 44 consecutive games with at least one strikeout.

BROWNS-POPPING PADS

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns first-year coach Mike Pettine did more than watch his team practice. He listened as well.

Cleveland's players worked out in full pads for the first time in training camp on Monday. Under cloudy skies and in October-like temperatures, the Browns got a lot more physical than during their first two days on the field.

Pettine said he was pleased with the contact, which included a few loud shoulder-pad-to-shoulder-pad pops that excited another large crowd on the fields behind the Browns' training headquarters.

Pro Bowl offensive tackle Joe Thomas said he still gets "butterflies" before the first full-contact practice "because this is real football. If you mess up, somebody's going to get smacked.

Pettine wants the Browns to be tougher this season, and linebacker Karlos Dansby believes Cleveland has several players with a nasty streak.

NCAA-CONCUSSION LAWSUIT

CHICAGO (AP) -- The NCAA has agreed to settle a class-action head injury lawsuit.

The Associated Press has learned that the organization will create a $70 million fund to diagnose thousands of current and former college athletes to determine if they suffered brain trauma playing football and other contact sports.

A filing today in U.S. District Court in Chicago says college sports' governing body also has agreed to implement a single return-to-play policy spelling out how all teams must treat players who received head blows. The NCAA has been accused of giving too much discretion to individual schools about when athletes can go back into games.

This deal stops short of setting aside money to pay players who suffered brain trauma. Instead, athletes can sue individually for damages, and the NCAA-funded tests to gauge the extent of neurological injuries could establish grounds for doing that.
