CAVALIERS-CELTICS

BOSTON (AP) -- LeBron James scored 27 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers overcame a shoulder injury to Kevin Love to complete a first-round sweep of the Boston Celtics with a 101-93 victory Sunday.

Love left the court in the first quarter after hurting his left shoulder, and J.R. Smith was ejected for swinging his arm at Jae Crowder, but the Cavaliers held on to win a series for the first time since 2010, before James left for Miami.

Now Cleveland gets extra time before facing the winner of the Chicago-Milwaukee series. The Bulls lead 3-1.

The Cavaliers led 99-89 with 44 seconds left, but the Celtics didn't give up. Isaiah Thomas hit a layup and Avery Bradley sank two free throws to cut the lead to six before the ball went out of bounds off Kyrie Irving. But Gigi Datome missed a 3-pointer before Irving was fouled and made two shots.

CAVALIERS-SMITH EJECTED

BOSTON (AP) -- J.R. Smith has been ejected from Cleveland's playoff game after swinging his arm back and knocking Boston's Jae Crowder to the floor early in the second half.

Crowder remained there for a few minutes before leaving for the locker room. The Celtics said he had a sprained left knee and would not return.

Smith was charged with a flagrant foul. Isaiah Thomas made the two free throws then Avery Bradley hit a basket when the Celtics put the ball in play.

That just cut the Cavaliers' 21-point halftime lead to 57-40 as they went for a sweep of the first-round series.

CAVALIERS-LOVE HURT

BOSTON (AP) -- Kevin Love has been ruled out of the Cavaliers' playoff game against the Celtics after hurting his left shoulder midway through the first quarter.

Cleveland's power forward was injured when he and Boston's Kelly Olynyk chased a loose ball into the left corner after Jae Crowder of the Celtics missed a 3-pointer. Olynyk's right arm became entangled with Love's left arm. Love then grabbed his arm and kept running toward the Cleveland bench before going to the locker room, where he was icing the shoulder and undergoing evaluation.

Olynyk was charged with a non-shooting foul.

Love averaged 18.3 points in the first three games and scored the first basket Sunday in Cleveland's attempt to sweep the first-round, Eastern Conference series.

CUBS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Rookie Addison Russell doubled with the bases loaded -- one of his best moments during his first week in the majors -- and the Chicago Cubs held on for a 5-2 victory on Sunday and a sweep of their rain-shortened series against the Cincinnati Reds.

The 21-year-old second baseman was in a slump when he broke the game open with his three-run double in the fourth inning off Anthony DeSclafani (2-1). Miguel Montero had a solo homer and a run-scoring single off DeSclafani, who had a streak of 16 scoreless innings snapped.

The Reds have dropped three in a row overall. They went 0 for 20 with runners in scoring position during the two games against Chicago.

Jake Arrieta (3-1) pitched six innings after waiting out a 4-hour, 13-minute delay before the Reds called off Saturday's game because of persistent rain. The Cubs won the series opener on Friday night, 7-3 in 11 innings.

MLB-BALTIMORE

BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Baltimore Orioles' home game at Camden Yards has been postponed because of safety concerns.

Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred, at the stadium for a previously planned visit, said Tuesday night's game between the Orioles and White Sox could be moved -- possibly to Nationals Park in Washington -- if safety continued to be an issue.

Rioters have looted stores and thrown rocks and bricks at Baltimore police in the wake of the mysterious spinal injury of Freddie Gray, who died in police custody. The epicenter of the protests is less than a mile from the ballpark.

About 1,000 fans were inside the stadium when the game was called off, and many gates already had been closed.

MLB-CARDINALS-WAINWRIGHT

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals say ace Adam Wainwright is out for the season because of a torn left Achilles.

General manager John Mozeliak (moh-ZAY'-lahk) made the announcement at Busch Stadium. Wainwright will have surgery later this week.

Wainwright was hurt while batting Saturday in Milwaukee.

This is the second major injury of Wainwright's career. The right-hander missed the 2011 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery.

MLB-NATIONALS-SCHERZER

ATLANTA (AP) -- Max Scherzer will not make his scheduled start for Washington against Atlanta on Tuesday night because of a sprained right thumb. Scherzer jammed the thumb while batting against St. Louis on Thursday. He couldn't throw in the bullpen as scheduled on Sunday.

MLB-ROYALS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez has dropped his appeal of a five-game suspension for his involvement in a brawl with the Chicago White Sox last week. He is among four Royals players suspended for their actions in the fight last Thursday. Pitcher Yordano Ventura was given a seven-game penalty, and outfielder Lorenzo Cain and reliever Kelvin Herrera received two-game bans. All the players initially appealed.

Chicago pitchers Chris Sale and Jeff Samardzjia (suh-MAHR'-juh) were each suspended five games.

MLB-HAMILTON

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Josh Hamilton is back with the Texas Rangers. The Los Angeles Angels wanted to get rid of him so much they are expected to pay most of the remaining $80.2 million on his contract. Hamilton, who has a history of drug and alcohol issues, never reported to the Angels this season after offseason right shoulder surgery. He self-reported a relapse of alcohol and cocaine use, but an arbitrator ruled he could not be disciplined by Major League Baseball.

Hamilton was the 2010 AL MVP and an All-Star in each of his five seasons with Texas from 2008-12. He struggled with injuries and lack of performance with the Angels in his two seasons in Southern California

NBA-SUSPENSIONS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The NBA has suspended Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith two games without pay and Celtics center Kelly Olynyk (OHL'-nihk) one game for their roles in separate incidents during a playoff game.

Smith will miss Games 1 and 2 of the Cavs' next series, when the club will also be without Kevin Love, who dislocated his shoulder earlier in the game.

Olynyk hurt Cavs forward Love, grabbing and pulling his arm. The league said Olynyk will serve his suspension in the first game of the 2015-16 regular season for which he is eligible and able to play.

NBA-CAVALIERS-LOVE

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers forward Kevin Love will miss at least the team's next playoff series with a dislocated left shoulder.

Love got hurt in the first quarter of Sunday's series-clinching win over Boston. He got his left arm locked with Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk while chasing a loose ball. Olynyk yanked down on Love's arm and his shoulder popped out of its socket joint.

The Cavs say Love is seeking additional medical opinions.

In his first postseason as a pro, Love is averaging 14.3 points and seven rebounds. Love made six 3-pointers in Cleveland's Game 3 win.

NHL-RANGERS-ZUCCARELLO

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York Rangers forward Mats Zuccarello is out indefinitely with what the team calls an upper body injury.

New York is optimistic it will get defenseman Kevin Klein (broken left forearm) back for the next round. He has been out since March 11.

NHL-PREDATORS-WEBER

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Predators captain Shea (SHAY) Weber is recovering from surgery to repair a dislocated right kneecap, an injury that will take up to six weeks for a full recovery. The defenseman was injured on what he called a harmless hit against the end boards during the Nashville's first-round Western Conference playoff loss to Chicago.

Weber's 26 minutes, 22 seconds of ice time per game ranked fifth in the NHL, a spot behind his defensive partner Roman Josi.

NFL-COLTS

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis Colts have re-signed restricted free agent linebacker Jerrell Freeman. He joined the team in 2012 after spending three seasons in the Canadian Football League. Since then, he has been one of Indy's most productive defenders.

Last season, Freeman was credited by the coaches with 144 tackles, second on the team.

Freeman could become an unrestricted free agent after next season.

NFL-REDSKINS

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Quarterback Robert Griffin III's fifth-year, $16 million contract option for the 2016 season will be exercised by the Washington Redskins. The Redskins have three quarterbacks signed for next season: Griffin, Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy. All started at times last season, when Washington went 4-12.
