CUBS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jonathan Herrera singled home the tiebreaking run in the 11th inning, and David Ross followed with a bases-loaded double that sent the Chicago Cubs to a 7-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.

Anthony Rizzo homered, doubled and started Chicago's winning rally with a single off Burke Badenhop (0-1) as the Reds' bullpen failed again. Herrera singled home the go-ahead run, and Ross doubled home two more.

Starting pitcher Travis Wood drove in the final run with a pinch-hit grounder.

Jason Motte (1-0) got Jay Bruce to foul out with the bases loaded in the 10th inning, keeping it tied at 3. Hector Rondon retired the side in order for his fourth save in five chances.

INDIANS-TIGERS

DETROIT (AP) -- Brandon Moss homered twice and drove in seven runs, Danny Salazar struck out a career-high 11 and the Cleveland Indians routed the Detroit Tigers 13-1 Friday night.

Detroit has lost four straight after an 11-2 start.

Moss had a three-run homer in the fifth inning and a two-run shot in the ninth. Lonnie Chisenhall hit a two-run homer in the eighth. The Indians entered with 11 homers all season, none with runners on base.

Salazar (2-0) gave up one run on six hits and three walks in seven innings.

Shane Greene (3-1) had only allowed one earned run in 23 innings coming into the game, but gave up eight in four innings against Cleveland, starting with Moss' two-run double in the first.

NBA PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The Atlanta Hawks, top seed in the NBA Eastern Conference, take a 2-0 lead into Brooklyn for today's Game 3 of their first-round playoff series. The Hawks are 6-0 against Brooklyn this season, including the playoffs.

That's one of four NBA playoff games on top today. Later, the Chicago Bulls can earn some rest if they finish a sweep of Milwaukee. Their main man has been Derrick Rose, who had 34 points and eight assists in 48 minutes of Chicago's 113-106 double-overtime victory on Thursday.

Similarly, Golden State can eliminate New Orleans with another victory in the Big Easy. On Thursday, the Warriors roared from 20 points down in the fourth quarter to stun the Pelicans 123-199 in OT. Steph Curry had 40 in logging 44 points in that one.

Tonight's NBA schedule concludes with Portland hosting Memphis as the Grizzlies take a 2-0 lead into the Rose City. The Blazers are looking for a better performance from All-Star guard Damian Lillard, who has shot just 10 of 37 in the first two games. He has missed 10 of his 11 3-point tries.

NHL PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP)-- The Washington Capitals can advance to the second round of the NHL playoffs with a victory over the New York Islanders today. Washington leads the series 3-2. Capitals coach Barry Trotz says winning Game 5 to push the Islanders to the brink of elimination won't have any impact today.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have considerable momentum entering today's Game 5 against Detroit on their home ice. Last time out the Lightning roared from a 2-0 deficit in the final five and a-half minutes in Detroit to beat the Red Wings 3-2 in overtime and even the series at two games apiece.

The Chicago Blackhawks can finish off Nashville with a victory over the Predators tonight at United Center. The Blackhawks lead that series 3-2. Last time out rookie Filip Forsberg had the hat trick as Nashville scored a Game 5 victory on its home ice.

Finally tonight, Daniel Sedin (suh-DEEN') and Vancouver are hoping to draw even in their first-round series against Calgary when they take on the Flames in Game 6 in Calgary.

MLB-ROYALS/WHITE SOX

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Major League Baseball has come down on seven members of the Kansas City Royals and Chicago White Sox for their roles in a brawl earlier this week. Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura was suspended seven games, fellow starter Edinson Volquez suspended five games, and outfielder Lorenzo Cain and reliever Kelvin Herrera suspended two games apiece for taking part in the benches-clearing fight Thursday night.

White Sox pitchers Chris Sale and Jeff Samardzija (suh-MAHR'-juh) were suspended five games.

All six players were fined an undisclosed amount, along with White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers. The Royals-White Sox game on Saturday was rained out, meaning all suspensions will begin Sunday unless a player chooses to appeal.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The Mets try to start another winning streak when they continue their weekend Subway Series with the Yankees. All-Star ace Matt Harvey tries to put the Mets back in the win column after the Yankees ended their 11-game winning streak last night. Harvey is nursing a sore ankle. The Yankees have won seven of their last eight. They'll give the ball to CC Sabathia (suh-BA'-thee-uh).

Overall there were seven scheduled day games on the agenda. That said, a suspended game and a scheduled game between the Chicago White Sox and the Kansas City Royals have been postponed because of rain. The teams will resume Friday's rain-suspended game with the score tied 2-2 at 1:10 p.m. on Sunday, followed by the regularly scheduled game. No makeup date was announced for Saturday's game.

There are nine more games coming up tonight.

MLB-ATHLETICS

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The Oakland Athletics have placed infielder/outfielder Ben Zobrist on the 15-day disabled list with torn cartilage in his left knee. Zobrist was batting .240 with one homer and eight RBIs in 14 games. He has started games at second base, left field and right field so far this season.
