INDIANS-WHITE SOX

CHICAGO (AP) -- Danny Salazar tossed six scoreless innings and was backed by first-inning home runs from Nick Swisher and Mike Aviles, leading the Cleveland Indians past the Chicago White Sox 5-2 on Thursday night.

Salazar was coming off his worst start of the season in which he allowed five earned runs in 4 2/3 innings against Texas on May 16. He recovered to help the Indians take three of four from Chicago while winning their third straight for the first time this season.

Salazar (5-1) walked three, but struck out eight while giving up five hits to hand Chicago its first series loss at home.

John Danks (2-4) allowed five runs and six hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Chicago's Jose Abreu went 1 for 4 and extended his hitting streak to 16 games. Tyler Flowers hit a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth off Bryan Shaw to avoid the shutout.

MANFRED-ROSE

NEW YORK (AP) -- Pete Rose's role at the All-Star game in Cincinnati will be determined by Major League Baseball and the Reds after they determine what other obligations the banned career hits leader has.

Rose began work as a studio analyst for Fox this month. The network will broadcast the game, which is being played in Rose's hometown on July 14.

Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said Thursday that MLB is talking to the Reds about Rose's involvement.

Rose agreed to a lifetime ban in 1989 after an MLB investigation concluded he bet on Reds' games while managing the team. He has applied for reinstatement, but Manfred has not given a timetable for a decision.

HAWKS-CARROLL INJURY

ATLANTA (AP) -- DeMarre Carroll's agent says an MRI on Carroll's left knee showed no structural damage, and Carroll is hoping to play for the Hawks by Friday night's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Mark Bartelstein told The Associated Press on Thursday that Carroll has only a knee sprain and "maybe a little" bone bruise.

Carroll celebrated the news on his Twitter feed.

Bartelstein says Carroll will receive treatment for the soreness Thursday and Friday in hopes of playing against Cleveland in Game 2.

Carroll's knee appeared to buckle as he was driving to the basket with about 5 minutes left in the 97-89 loss to the Cavaliers. Carroll couldn't put pressure on the leg as he was helped off the floor.

B10-OHIO ST-INDIANA

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Scott Donley's three-RBI double broke a tie in the eighth inning and sixth-seeded Indiana beat Ohio State 5-3 Thursday in an elimination game of the Big Ten tournament.

Kyle Hart pitched six scoreless innings for the defending Big Ten champion Hoosiers (33-21). Hart allowed six hits and no runs or walks. Indiana will play the loser of the Michigan vs. Iowa game on Friday.

The Buckeyes (35-20) didn't get on the board until Nick Sergakis' RBI groundout scored Ronnie Dawson in the seventh inning. Craig Nenning followed with an RBI single to tie it 2-2.

Brad Hartong gave Indiana a 1-0 lead with a solo home run in the fourth inning.

Seventh-seeded Ohio State has lost five-straight games after losing to Iowa in their tournament opener on Thursday.

NFL-BRADY APPEAL

NEW YORK (AP) -- Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') will hear Tom Brady's appeal of his four-game suspension for his role in the deflated footballs scandal. That's what several sources who have knowledge of the decision are telling The Associated Press.

These people says the NFL told the players' union on Friday that Goodell will not recuse himself from what the commissioner considers his responsibility of hearing the appeal. Those people spoke on condition of anonymity because Goodell's decision has not been announced publicly.

The union asked Goodell to withdraw from that role because it said he lacked impartiality and that Goodell would be called as a witness.

No date has been set for the appeal. The collective bargaining agreement calls for it to be heard within 10 days. However, both sides can agree on delaying a hearing, which would need to be held by Wednesday without any requested delays.

NBA PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

ATLANTA (AP) -- The second game of the Hawks-Cavaliers NBA Eastern Conference final is being played tonight in Atlanta. That was the site of the Cavaliers' 97-89 win two nights ago in the first game of the best-of-seven series.

The status of two key players remains paramount as Cleveland fans continue to hope that Kyrie (KY'-ree) Irving will be able to play on his bad knee and ankle, while Hawks' fans are hoping that DeMarre (deh-MAHR'-ay) Carroll will be able to play after wrenching his left knee in the Game 1 loss. An MRI on Thursday showed no structural damage to the knee and Carroll's agent says his client hopes to play.

As far as Irving's concerned he wasn't able to take part in today's morning shoot-around to see the team doctor.

Following a day off the series will resume in Cleveland Sunday.

NHL PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Tampa Bay can take a commanding lead in its best-of-seven Stanley Cup Eastern Conference final with a win tonight over New York. The Rangers won the first game of the series in New York while the Lightning have won the last two. Following this evening's Game 4 in Tampa the series will shift back to New York for Game 5 Sunday evening.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Two division leaders are meeting tonight because of interleague play as American League Central leader Kansas City is home to St. Louis, the top team in the NL Central. KC enters the game with a record of 26-14 while the Cards are 27-14. Tonight's game marks the first time in the past 18 years of interleague play when the Royals and Cardinals have met with each team in first place.

King Felix of the Mariners is looking to become baseball's first seven-game winner tonight. Seattle is on the road for a game with the Blue Jays and Felix Hernandez enters the game 6-1 with a 2.30 earned run average. The ace right-hander was handed his first loss of the season last Saturday by the Red Sox.

The winningest team right now is San Francisco as the Giants have won their last six games. Tonight the defending World Champs are in Denver facing the Rockies. Washington has won its last five in a row to take over first place in the National league East. This evening the Nats are home to Philadelphia.

The rest of the dance card has Texas in New York to face the Yankees, Pittsburgh home to the Mets, the Tigers entertaining the Astros, Baltimore at Miami, the Indians home to the Reds in the opening game of what they call "The Battle for Ohio," the Angels at Boston, the Rays at home to the Athletics, Milwaukee in Atlanta, the White Sox hosting the Twins, the Cubs at Arizona and the Dodgers at home to the Padres.

MLB-BREWERS

ATLANTA (AP) -- Milwaukee Brewers reliever Will Smith has been suspended for eight games for having a foreign substance on his pitching arm during a game at Atlanta. Since he plans to appeal the ruling Smith will be available for tonight's game with the Braves.

Smith was ejected for having rosin and sunscreen on his right forearm in the seventh inning of Thursday night's 10-1 loss. It's widely acknowledged pitchers use similar practices to grip the ball better even though it's against the rules.

NFL-COWBOYS

UNDATED (AP) -- The Dallas Cowboys and cornerback Orlando Scandrick have agreed to a new contract. The one year contract extension is worth $9.5 million and pushes the total value of his deal to $20 million through 2019.

The 28-year-old Scandrick was Dallas' best cornerback last year but was set to make $1.5 million this season. Under the new deal he will get $4 million this year.

PGA-CROWNE PLAZA INVITATIONAL

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Kevin Na fired a 6-under 66 and has a two-shot lead over Ian Poulter after two rounds of the PGA's Crowne Plaza Invitational in Fort Worth, Texas.

Because of threatening weather over the weekend, the PGA Tour said it would send groups out early in threesomes on Saturday in hopes of beating the rain. Rain is also forecast for Sunday.

SENIOR PGA CHAMPIONSHIP

FRENCH LICK, Ind. (AP) -- Tom Lehman (LAY'-muhn) has surged to the lead late in his second round at the PGA Championship in French Lick, Indiana. Lehman has a two-shot lead over Esteban Toledo (EHS'-teh-bahn toh-LAY'-doh), who followed up his first round 74 with a 4-under-68 to stand 2-under for the tournament.

COLLEGE ATHLETICS-NORTH CAROLINA

UNDATED (AP) -- North Carolina has received a notice of allegations from the NCAA connected to the school's academic fraud scandal. In a statement the school's Chancellor and athletic director said they are reviewing the "lengthy" notice and will release it publicly "as soon as possible" after redactions to comply with privacy laws.

The NCAA reopened a probe into academic misconduct last summer connected to the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies department. The focus was courses which were often treated as independent studies that required no class time and one or two research papers.

An eight-month investigation stated that an office administrator, not a faculty member, typically handed out assignments, and then high grades, after only a scan of the work.

The fraud case has led to several lawsuits from ex-UNC athletes against the school or NCAA, and school also faces questions from its accreditation agency.

FRENCH OPEN

PARIS (AP) -- Play in the French Open, the second major of the year in tennis, starts this Sunday in Paris. The draw has been announced and it could favor Roger Federer in that he is in the half of the men's field that does not include Novak Djokovic (NOH'-vak JOH'-kuh-vich), Rafael Nadal (rah-fay-ehl nah-DAHL'), Andy Murray and David Ferrer.

In the women's draw 19-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams could wind up facing former No. 1 Victoria Azarenka (ah-zah-REN'-kuh) in the third round.

The top seeds are Djokovic and Williams.

SCHUMACHER UPDATE

GLAND, Switzerland (AP) -- Michael Schumacher's manager says the seven-time Formula One champion is still improving, almost 17 months after suffering severe head injuries in a skiing accident. Schumacher won a record seven Formula One titles and 91 races.

He was injured when skiing during a French Alps vacation.
