ROCKIES-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds lost their ninth straight game Monday as Nolan Arenado homered, had three hits and drove in the tiebreaking run with a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning off Aroldis Chapman that gave the Colorado Rockies a 5-4 victory.

This is the Reds' longest losing streak since they dropped 11 straight in June 1998 under manager Jack McKeon.

Arenado had a pair of singles and a solo homer off Reds starter Jason Marquis. He then helped the Rockies pull it out against Chapman (2-3), who came in for the ninth.

Charlie Blackmon opened with a walk and took third on D.J. Lemahieu's single. Blackmon scored easily on Arenado's fly to center fielder Billy Hamilton, whose throw was off-target.

Rafael Betancourt (2-1) retired the four batters he faced. John Axford gave up a walk in the ninth while getting his seventh save in as many chances.

RANGERS-INDIANS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Josh Hamilton was hitless in his return to the majors, but reached on a key error that sent the Texas Rangers over Cleveland 10-8 Monday for their sixth straight win.

Hamilton, slowed this season by shoulder surgery, was 0 for 3 with two strikeouts and a walk, and scored a run.

The 2010 AL MVP came up with runners on first and second and two outs in the seventh inning with the score 8-all. He hit an easy tapper back to pitcher Zach McAllister, whose throw was well over the head of first baseman Carlos Santana for a two-base error.

Hamilton was traded from the Angels back to Texas in late April.

Prince Fielder hit his fourth home run in four games for the Rangers. He hit an RBI single that tied it earlier in the seventh.

The Indians had won six in a row.

NBA PLAYOFFS-CAVALIERS-IRVING

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers have their usual starting lineup intact for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals tonight against Atlanta.

All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving started the game after missing two straight with a sore left knee. He tested the knee during the morning shootaround and again before tip-off.

Irving will wear a brace and be monitored during the game.

The Cavs are trying to close out a four-game sweep of the Hawks and advance to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2007.

NBA-ROCKETS-HOWARD

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard will not be suspended for Game 5 of the Western Conference finals against the Golden State Warriors after the NBA decided to uphold his flagrant 1 foul.

NBA President of Basketball Operations Rod Thorn says in a statement Tuesday night that Howard was trying to free himself from Andrew Bogut when Howard "recklessly hit him in the face with an open hand." Thorn says the contact was deemed unnecessary by game officials and the league doesn't "see a reason to modify that call."

The Warriors lead the series 3-1.

NBA-HAWKS-KORVER

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Atlanta Hawks guard Kyle Korver will have surgery on the right ankle he injured in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer did not say what damage Korver has in his ankle. There is no timetable for his return.

The NBA's best 3-point shooter in the regular season was injured when he was scrambling for a loose ball and his ankle was rolled on by Cleveland's Matthew Dellavedova.

Korver made 221 3-pointers this season, helping the Hawks win 60 games and get to the conference finals for the first time since 1993-94.

NHL-BLUES

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Blues and head coach Ken Hitchcock have agreed to a one-year contract.

The decision comes a month after the Blues were eliminated in the Western Conference quarterfinals following a successful run to the Central Division title. Hitchcock has led the Blues to the playoffs in each of his four seasons with the team, but the Blues have won just one playoff round in that span.

MLB-REDS-CUETO

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Reds starter Johnny Cueto (KWAY'-toh) will miss at least one more start after an MRI found inflammation but no major damage in his pitching elbow.

Manager Bryan Price said Cueto will throw in the next few days and see how the elbow feels. Cueto is in the final year of his contract and hasn't been able to reach a deal with the Reds.

MLB-DIAMONDBACKS/BURGOS

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks placed rookie reliever Enrique Burgos on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis, a day after he allowed hits to each of the two batters he faced.

Burgos had 25 strikeouts in 13 appearances over 13 2/3 innings, leading major league relievers with 16.46 strikeouts per nine innings. Lefty Vidal Nuno was recalled from Triple-A Reno to replace Burgos, who is 0-2 with a 4.61 ERA.

FRENCH OPEN-DAY 3

PARIS (AP) -- Rafael Nadal (rah-fay-ehl nah-DAHL') is off and running at the French Open. The nine-time champ won his opening match in straight sets, defeating an 18-year old wild-card entry from France who was ranked 296th. Nadal has won 67 of his 68 career matches in the French Open, including the last 36 in a row.

Top-seed Novak Djokovic (NOH'-vak JOH'-kuh-vich) won his opener in straight sets as well. Americans John Isner (IHZ'-nur) and Jack Sock advanced. Sock pulled off a first round upset with a straight-sets win over 10th-seed Grigor Dimitrov (GREE'-gohr DIH'-mih-trahv).

On the women's side top-seed Serena Williams was a winner in her first match as were two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova (kuh-VIHT'-oh-vuh) and two-time U.S. Open runner-up Caroline Wozniacki (wohz-nee-AK'-ee).
