CUBS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Travis Wood pitched six innings of two-hit ball against his former team for his first win in two months, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 3-0 victory over Johnny Cueto and the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night.

Arismendy Alcantara hit a two-run shot and Anthony Rizzo connected for his 30th homer for the Cubs, who have won four in a row for the first time since June 30-July 4.

Cincinnati was shut out for the 12th time this season. Cueto (15-8) struck out eight in 6 1-3 innings in his second straight loss after winning seven consecutive decisions.

Wood (8-11) struck out five and walked one.

BENGALS MOVES

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Bengals waived second-year linebacker J.K. Schaffer as part of their moves to get down to the 75-man roster limit on Tuesday.

Schaffer grew up in Cincinnati and attended the University of Cincinnati. He suffered a concussion during the second preseason game. If he clears waivers, he'll revert to the Bengals' injured reserve list.

Rookie cornerback Lavelle Westbrooks also was waived with a thumb injury and will revert to the team's injury list if he clears waivers.

In addition, the Bengals waived second-year tight end Kevin Brock, first-year receiver Jasper Collins, rookie linebacker James Davidson and first-year quarterback Matt Scott.

BROWNS CAMP

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Cleveland Browns safety Donte Whitner has seen the two-quarterback system work in the NFL.

With Johnny Manziel serving as the backup quarterback for the Browns, coach Mike Pettine has hinted at developing an offensive package for him. The idea is not unlike what the San Francisco 49ers did in 2012 with Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick.

Whitner was on the 49ers at the time and said that even if the package isn't used much in a game, simply making sure an opposing team has to prepare for it can be an advantage.

Pettine agreed. He was the defensive coordinator for the Jets when they played the 49ers in 2012.

New York spent time preparing for both Kaepernick and Smith before losing 34-0. Kaepernick threw one incomplete pass, but rushed for 50 yards and a score.

BROWNS-GORDON ARRESTED

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The attorney for Josh Gordon says the Cleveland Browns receiver's hearing on a drunken-driving charge in North Carolina has been rescheduled for November.

Gordon was due to appear in Wake County court Tuesday on charges of driving while impaired and speeding. Attorney Trey Fitzhugh says Gordon had a waiver to miss the pretrial appearance and the case is continued until Nov. 18.

Gordon was arrested July 5 in Raleigh after being pulled for going 50 mph in a 35 mph zone.

He is still waiting to hear from the NFL on whether he'll be suspended for all or part of the upcoming season for violating the league's substance-abuse program. The Pro Bowler led the NFL with 1,646 yards receiving last year.

CAVALIERS-LOVE & LEBRON

Kevin Love say he's committed long term to Cavs

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) -- Kevin Love says he's committed to winning an NBA title with the Cavaliers -- however long it takes.

The All-Star forward was introduced Tuesday by the Cavs, who acquired Love last weekend in a blockbuster, three-team trade that instantly turned Cleveland into an NBA championship favorite. The deal also gives the team a star-powered trio in Love, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.

Love spent his first six seasons with Minnesota. He can opt out of his contract and become a free agent next summer. Love says he intends to stay with the Cavs, saying, "I'm committed to this team, committed long term to the end goal and that's to win championships."

Love said shortly after James announced he was re-signing with Cleveland that the four-time league MVP called and asked him to join him.

Love said he told James, "I'm in."

BIG TEN COACHES

UNDATED (AP) -- Four of the eight neutral-site games the first week of the college football season involve Big Ten teams.

Rutgers plays its first game as a Big Ten member against Washington State in Seattle on Thursday.

On Saturday, Ohio State plays Navy in Baltimore, Wisconsin faces LSU in Houston and Penn State and UCF meet in Dublin, Ireland.

The games will produce varying amounts of money for the participants. Wisconsin earns the most, at $2 million. Each of the teams hope the exposure helps in recruiting.

Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen said playing LSU will allow him to find out right away how his young team stacks up against a high-caliber opponent.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL-USC/SHAW

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Steve Sarkisian (sahr-KEE'-zee-an) hasn't coached a game for Southern California, but he's already dealt with his first firestorm since leaving Washington after last season.

Trojans cornerback Josh Shaw has been indefinitely suspended by the team after admitting he lied to school officials about how he sprained his ankles last weekend, retracting his story about jumping off a balcony to save his drowning nephew. Sarkisian said that honesty and integrity must be at the center of his football program, and he believes Shaw will learn from this.

The school didn't explain in its statement how Shaw actually was injured, but USC officials say they regret posting a story lauding Shaw's tale on their website Monday. Shaw is a fifth-year senior, a team captain and a key starter in USC's defensive secondary.

NFL-BROWNS

UNDATED (AP) -- Cleveland receiver Josh Gordon has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy again. He missed two games last season due to another violation of the policy but still let the team with 1,646 yards in receptions.

Gordon will have to apply for reinstatement following the season.

The 23-year-old had appealed his yearlong suspension for marijuana use and met with a league arbitrator in New York on Aug. 4. Arbitrator Harold Henderson upheld the suspension.

NFL-PANTHERS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Carolina quarterback Cam Newton says he feels great and "there's no doubt" in his mind he'll be ready to play in the Panthers season opener Sept. 7 against Tampa Bay. The fourth-year quarterback, who is recovering from a hairline fracture to multiple ribs and, says he's improving with each day.

Newton has never missed a start in three seasons of pro ball.

NFL-MOVES

UNDATED (AP) -- Bengals Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict has signed a three-year extension on that runs through the 2017 season and will pay him a maximum of $20.05 million. Burfict is entering the final year on his original deal that will pay him a salary of $570,000. Under his extension, he'll make $10 million through next summer in salary and bonuses.

Burfict is the leader of a defense that finished third in the NFL last season in yards allowed.

Elsewhere;

-- Tennessee has agreed to a multi-year contract extension with defensive lineman Jurrell Casey. Multiple media outlets say it's for $36 million over four years, with $20.5 million guaranteed. Casey is coming off a career year with 10.5 sacks, 90 tackles and 10 quarterback pressures.

-- Arizona has signed defensive tackle Tommy Kelly, two days after he was cut by the New England Patriots. The 33-year-old is coming off surgery to repair a torn ACL but was playing with the Patriots' first-team defense this preseason before he was cut.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Pirates were able to bolster their postseason chances this afternoon, while another contender was getting blown out by the worst team in the majors.

Ike Davis hit a big homer for the second straight game, a two-run blast in the second inning of Pittsburgh's 3-1 win over St. Louis. Davis also hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer in the eighth inning of last night's 5-2 victory against the Cardinals.

Jeff Locke (lahk) gave up a run and six hits in 7 1/3 innings as the Pirates temporarily pulled within one game of San Francisco for the final NL wild-card berth, pending the outcome of tonight's game between the Giants and Colorado.

The Bucs also prevented Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright from becoming the majors' first 16-game winner of the season.

In Seattle, Rougned Odor (ROOG'-nehd oh-DOHR') hit a third-inning grand slam and Colby Lewis tossed a seven-hitter as Texas clobbered the Mariners 12-4. Leonys Martin (lee-OH'-nihs mahr-TEEN') smacked a two-run homer and had three RBIs, while Tomas Telis (toh-MAHS' TAY'-lees) added a three-run double as part of the Rangers' 11-hit attack. The Mariners will fall a half-game behind Detroit for the final AL wild-card berth if the Tigers beat the Yankees later today.
