CINCINNATI (AP) -- Andy Dalton sneaked in for a touchdown on Cincinnati's opening drive, then came out of the game as a precaution with a sore neck on Saturday night during a 21-10 preseason victory over the Chicago Bears.

The Bengals (2-1) were looking for a lot more out of their starting offense after a three-turnover performance during a loss at Tampa Bay. Dalton threw two interceptions in that one.

He completed all six of his passes during a 16-play, 77-yard drive that consumed 9 minutes, 11 seconds. Dalton finished it with a sneak from inside the 1-yard line, and was kept on the sideline after that because his neck hurt.

Bengals quarterbacks completed their first 13 passes against the Bears (2-1), who again failed to get a touchdown out of their starting offense. Chicago's offense has managed five field goals and no touchdowns in the preseason.


CLEVELAND (AP) -- Yan Gomes' eighth-inning grand slam capped a five-run rally and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Los Angeles Angels 8-3 on Saturday night.

Gomes homered to center on the first pitch from Joe Smith (4-4) for his first career grand slam, lifting Cleveland to its fourth straight win.

Carlos Santana's RBI double broke a 3-all tie and sent Los Angeles to its seventh loss in nine games. The Angels are 2 1-2 games behind Texas for the second AL wild card.

Bryan Shaw (3-2) pitched 1 1-3 scoreless innings for Cleveland.

Smith entered the game to start the eighth but didn't retire a batter, allowing five runs, four hits and an intentional walk.

The game was delayed by rain for 38 minutes in the bottom of the third.


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Joey Votto put the Reds ahead with a two-run home run in the ninth inning and the Cincinnati Reds came back to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 12-9 Saturday.

Trailing 9-8, Votto hit his 25th homer of the year off Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez (0-3), whose streak of 35 consecutive saves dating back to last season was broken. The Reds added two more runs when Todd Frazier, who hit his 30th homer in the fifth, scored on a passed ball and Tucker Barnhart hit an RBI single.

Aroldis Chapman pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his 25th save in 27 chances. J.J. Hoover (6-0) got the win.

The win ended the Red's four-game losing streak, and the team has won twice in its last 15 games.

Keyvius Sampson pitched 3 2-3 innings for Cincinnati, giving up six runs on seven hits.

Scooter Gennett tied a career high with four hits and drove in three runs for Milwaukee.


CINCINNATI (AP) -- Quarterback Andy Dalton scored on a keeper that completed Cincinnati's opening drive against the Chicago Bears on Saturday night, then left the game with a sore neck.

Dalton had players piled on top of him after his 1-yard touchdown dive. He got up and spiked the ball, then came to the sideline. The Bengals announced that he had a neck injury. Dalton walked along the sideline with his helmet off, but didn't go for treatment.

Backup AJ McCarron took over at the start of the next series for Dalton, who was 6 of 6 for 52 yards on the Bengals' 16-play touchdown drive. It was an encouraging showing for Dalton, who threw two interceptions at Tampa Bay on Monday night.
