INDIANS-RAYS

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Mike Aviles homered on the first pitch of the 10th inning, giving the Cleveland Indians a 5-4 victory and four-game sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday.

Corey Kluber struck out 14 over eight innings. Brian Shaw (1-1) pitched one scoreless inning for the win, and Cody Allen struck out the side in the 10th to earn his 15th save in 16 opportunities.

Aviles homered off Xavier Cedeno (1-0), extending Tampa Bay's losing streak to five games. Michael Brantley had a RBI single and sacrifice fly for the Indians, who also got run-scoring singles from Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor.

MLS FINES

NEW YORK (AP) -- Toronto FC's Damien Perquis, Columbus Crew's Federico Higuain, New England's Kelyn Rowe and Real Salt Lake's Demar Phillips have been fined by MLS for infractions.

The MLS Disciplinary Committee fined the players undisclosed amounts on Thursday.

The infractions occurred in matches played last week -- Perquis (embellishment) against D.C. United; Higuain (simulation) against the Revolution; Rowe (hands to neck) against Columbus; and Phillips (failing to leave the field in timely manner after red card) against the New York Red Bulls.

CAVALIERS-MOZGOV

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cleveland Cavaliers center Timofey Mozgov has undergone successful right knee arthroscopic surgery and the team says he'll be out about six weeks.

The Cavaliers say Mozgov had the procedure Wednesday at the Cleveland Clinic Marymount Surgicenter.

Late last month, the team picked up the $5 million option on his contract for next season.

The 7-foot-1 center was acquired in a January trade from Denver in exchange for two first-round draft picks.

Mozgov transformed the Cavs on defense, giving them a rim-protecting big man after Anderson Varejao was lost for the season.

Mozgov, who will turn 29 in mid-July, averaged a career-high 10.6 points and 6.9 rebounds in 45 regular-season starts. He became a needed offensive option during the postseason, averaging 10.6 points and 7.3 rebounds in 20 postseason starts.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Justin Bour and Christian Yelich homered to boost the Miami Marlins past the Cubs 2-1.

Bour's solo home run in the sixth inning off Cubs starter Jason Hammel snapped a 1-1 tie and was his fourth in as many games. That spelled the difference for Tom Koehler who allowed five hits and an earned run in six innings while striking out four and walking one. He's now 7-4 for the Marlins, who have won four straight games.

Jason Hammel gave up both Marlins homers to adsorb the loss and fall to 5-4. He allowed only four hits in seven innings while striking out five and walking one. He retired 14 straight before Bour's homer.

Tonight in the majors, Josh Hamilton is facing the Angels for the first time since the abrupt April 27th trade that sent the former five-time All-Star back to Texas after two injury-plagued seasons in Los Angeles. He has only been able to play in nine games with the Rangers because of a hamstring injury.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Alex Rodriguez and the Yankees have settled their dispute over a $6 million marketing payment the team declined to give him for tying Willie Mays for fourth on the home run list.

Zach Hample caught the home run ball that Rodriguez hit for No. 3,000 on June 19. He initially declined to turn over the ball, but agreed to give it to Rodriguez because money was going to charity.
