CLEVELAND (AP) -- After Reds manager Bryan Price was ejected before the first pitch, Corey Kluber threw eight effective innings and led the Cleveland Indians over Cincinnati 2-1 Saturday for their fifth straight win.

The Reds lost their season-high seventh in a row.

Price was tossed by umpire Jim Reynolds after the exchange of lineup cards. They got into a lengthy argument that carried on as the Indians took the field -- the dispute likely stemmed from Friday night, when several Reds were upset with plate umpire Manny Gonzalez's strike zone.

Kluber (2-5) worked around constant trouble, but recorded his third strong start in a row. He allowed nine hits, struck out seven and didn't walk a batter.

Cody Allen pitched the ninth for his ninth save.

Tony Cingrani (0-1) walked Roberto Perez to start the eighth. Following a force play, Jason Kipnis lined a double to left-center that scored Michael Bourn.

NBA PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cleveland's Cavaliers can take a commanding 3-0 lead in their NBA Eastern Conference final with a win over the Hawks this evening. After taking the first two games in Atlanta the Cavs have the next two games on their home court.

LeBron James has been outstanding in the series as the Cavs battle without two-thirds of their "Big 3," James, Kevin Love and Kyrie (KY'-ree) Irving. Love is done for the season with a dislocated shoulder while Irving is dealing with tendinitis in a knee.

The Hawks are a banged-up team as well with Kyle Korver out for the rest of the playoffs after suffering a severe right ankle sprain in the second game. DeMarre Carroll continues to deal with an injured left knee.

Following tonight's game the fourth game in the series will be in Cleveland Tuesday night.

NHL PLAYOFFS

NEW YORK (AP) -- The NHL's Eastern Conference final shifts back to New York for the fifth game of the series this evening. The clubs split the first four games with New York taking Games 1 and 4 and Tampa Bay getting numbers 2 and 3. Following this evening's contest the series shifts back to Tampa for the sixth game Tuesday night. If it's needed, Game 7 would be back in New York next Friday.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Michael Wacha (WAH'-kuh) of the Cardinals is attempting to join Felex Hernandez of the Mariners as baseball's only seven-game winners. He and the Cards are facing the Royals in Kansas City in the final game of a series featuring two first-place clubs. The Royals won the first two games of the set.

The World Champion Giants had their winning streak extended and snapped yesterday. By beating the Rockies in the first of a day-night doubleheader the Giants extended their streak to eight. They then lost to the Rockies in the second contest.

The Sunday evening game has the Yankees playing host to the Texas Rangers.

MLB-INDIANS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cleveland Indians have activated catcher Yan Gomes from the 15-day disabled list. He's been out since April 11 with a sprained right knee. Gomes was injured when he tagged a player out at the plate. He is batting .150 in five games. He hit .278 with 21 homers and 74 RBIs last season.

MLB-RED SOX

BOSTON (AP) -- The Red Sox have placed right fielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list with a tight left calf. Victorino left Saturday's 8-3 win over the Angels with the tight calf that caused him to miss the previous two games. It's his second stint on the DL this season as he was on it at the end of April with a strained right hamstring.

INDIANAPOLIS 500

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The 99th Indianapolis 500 is being held this afternoon. It's a sunny day at the old Brickyard and Simon Pagenaud (PAJ'-uh-noh) is the leader. After 125 of 200 laps he led Will Power and pole sitter Scott Dixon.

NASCAR car Jeff Gordon drove the pace car before heading to Charlotte for the Coca-Cola 600 Sprint Cup race.

Retired TV host David Letterman has a new No. 1 on his personal Top Ten list of reasons he loves the Indianapolis 500. His IndyCar team paid tribute to the former "Late Show" host by putting a gap-toothed, smiling caricature of his face on driver Oriol Servia's yellow car for the race. Said Letterman, who is a native of Indianapolis, "with everything that's happened, it's the highlight of my career."

COCA-COLA 600

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Matt Kenseth starts from the pole for this evening's Coca-Cola 600 Sprint Cup race at Charlotte Motorspeedway. This is the longest race on the NASCAR schedule and starting 17 spots behind Kenseth is Jeff Gordon, a five-time winner at Charlotte. During one five-year span he won the Coca-Cola 600 three times in 1994, 1997 and 1998. The 43-year-old is retiring from racing at the end of the season and announced earlier in the week that he will join Fox Sports to call races for NASCAR's Xfinity Series.

F1-MONACO

MONACO (AP) -- In a wild finish, Nico (NEE'-koh) Rosberg won the Monaco Grand Prix. His Mercedes teammate Louis Hamilton led much of the race but because of a controversial late pit stop he finished third behind Ferarri's Sebastian Vettel.

FRENCH OPEN

PARIS (AP) -- The French Open, the second Grand Slam event of the year in tennis, is underway in Paris. Perhaps the biggest news on the first day of play involved a spectator running onto the court to take a "selfie" with second seed Roger Federer. The 17-time Grand Slam winner stood shocked as he motioned to authorities.

The incident took place just as he won his first match of the two-week event. Afterward he said, "I am not happy about it."

For the women, the highest seed to win was No. 3 Simona Halep (HAL'-ehp).
