DODGERS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Zack Greinke and two relievers combined on a four-hitter and the Los Angeles Dodgers completed a three-game sweep of the reeling Cincinnati Reds with a 1-0 win on Thursday.

Greinke (14-3) lowered his major league-best ERA to 1.61 and allowed four hits over seven innings while leading Los Angeles to its first sweep of a series in Cincinnati since a three-game set in July 2009. He finished with two walks and nine strikeouts.

He improved to 7-2 in 12 games against Cincinnati.

BROWNS-MANZIEL

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel will not play in Cleveland's last two exhibition games because of lingering soreness in his right elbow.

Manziel has been shut down from throwing, and Browns coach Mike Pettine said the second-year QB will miss not only this Saturday's game at Tampa Bay but Cleveland's preseason finale at Chicago on Sept. 3.

It's a setback for Manziel, who has shown improvement following a rough rookie season, which was followed by a seven-week stay in rehab.

Pettine had planned to play Manziel in the first half against the Buccaneers starting defense.

Manziel has dealt with elbow soreness since high school. The Browns are hoping rest will alleviate his issues. Pettine said Manziel realizes sitting out is "smart" so he doesn't make the condition worse.

MLB-NEWS

UNDATED (AP) -- The New York Yankees have reinstated rookie right-hander Bryan Mitchell from the seven-day concussion disabled list. Mitchell sustained a concussion and a broken nose when he was struck by a line drive hit by Minnesota's Eduardo Nunez on Aug. 17. The 24-year-old pitcher was making his third major league start. He is 0-1 with one save and a 3.86 ERA in 10 games this season.

Meanwhile, Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira (teh-SHEHR'-uh) is still out of the lineup while he deals with a bruised right shin. Teixeira is unable to run. Teixeira says his shin doesn't feel better following an off-day Thursday. More tests may be needed on his injury.

In other baseball:

-- Nationals center fielder Denard (deh-NARD') Span will have surgery on his left hip next week and is likely out for the season. Washington manager Matt Williams says Span had problems in the labrum. The surgery is set for Tuesday. The 31-year-old Span, who is a free agent after this season, already has missed 52 games in two stints on the disabled list with back and abdominal ailments.

-- The Seattle Mariners have fired general manager Jack Zduriencik (zur-EHN'-sihk). He held the job for seven seasons but the team didn't make the playoffs during his tenure. Assistant general manager Jeff Kingston will take over on an interim basis. Seattle had just two winning seasons during Zduriencik's tenure. -- Indians manager Terry Francona says he won't use an out clause in his contract if Cleveland President Mark Shapiro takes a job elsewhere. Shapiro reportedly is a candidate to succeed Toronto Blue Jays President Paul Beeston, who plans to retire after this season.

-- Giants right-hander Matt Cain has gone on the 15-day disabled list with irritation in his pitching elbow and received a cortisone injection to help it calm down.

PGA-THE BARCLAYS

EDISON, N.J. (AP) -- Bubba Watson enters the weekend with a one-shot lead over British Open champ Zach Johnson, Jason Dufner, Henrik Stenson and Tony Finau after two rounds of The Barclays, the first event on the PGA Tour's playoffs. Watson is at 7-under par following his second-round 2-under 68.

Johnson shot a 5-under 65, while Stenson turned in a 66 and Finau posted a 69.

Jordan Spieth (SPEETH) had a rough couple of days in north Jersey. The Masters and U.S. Open champion shot a second round 3-over 73 and missed the cut. That means Rory McIlroy will inherit the No. 1 world ranking.

LPGA-YOKOHAMA

PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) -- Austin Ernst had eight birdies and an eagle on the way to a 7-under 65 and the clubhouse lead late in the second round of the LGPA's Yokohama Tire Classic. She stands 9-under for the tournament.

Lexi Thompson shot a 67 and trails by a stroke.

CHAMPIONS TOUR

ENDICOTT, N.Y. (AP) -- Paul Goydos and Gene Sauers shot 6-under 66s to tie for the lead after the opening round of the Champions Tour's Dick's Sporting Goods Open. Former champ John Huston was a stroke back along with Ian Woosnam.

Defending champion Bernhard Langer had a 71.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL-ILLINOIS

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Tim Beckman has been fired as football coach at Illinois. The school cites the preliminary results of an investigation into allegations of player mistreatment and inappropriate behavior. The school's athletic director says it was better to dismiss Beckman now than wait for the release of the full investigation potentially during the season.

Beckman was 12-25 in three seasons at Illinois, improving the team's record each season. The Illini went 6-7 last year.

Offensive coordinator Bill Cubit will coach the Illini in their home opener against Kent State Sept. 6.

NASCAR-STEWART

NEW YORK (AP) -- NASCAR star Tony Stewart says he didn't see a young driver standing on a dirt track in upstate New York last year before he struck and killed him.

Stewart says in court papers Friday that he didn't realize Kevin Ward Jr. had been walking along the track after a crash at Canandaigua (kan-un-DAY'-gwuh) Motorsports Park on Aug. 9, 2014.

Ward's family has filed a lawsuit accusing Stewart of gross negligence, arguing he gunned his engine and put his car into a skid before hitting Ward.

Stewart's lawyer argues Ward caused his own death by getting out of his car and walking along the track.
