REDS-NATIONALS

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Eugenio Suarez hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning, and the Cincinnati Reds beat Washington 3-2 Monday night to end the Nationals' nine-game home winning streak.

Suarez went 3 for 4 with two RBIs to help the Reds snap a three-game skid and improve to 4-0 against Washington this year, clinching the season series.

With the score knotted at 2, Suarez drove an 0-2 pitch from Casey Janssen (0-2) just inside the left-field foul pole. Recalled from the minors on June 11 after an injury sidelined starting shortstop Zack Cozart, Suarez is batting .329 with three homers and 13 RBIs in 21 games.

Manny Parra (1-1) worked the seventh and Aroldis Chapman got three outs for his 17th save. One of Chapman's fastballs was clocked at 103 mph.

Danny Espinosa homered for the Nationals, who had won 12 of 15 overall and were unbeaten at home since June 18.

ASTROS-INDIANS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Dallas Keuchel, chosen for the American League All-Star team earlier Monday, allowed three runs in six innings in helping the Houston Astros defeat the Cleveland Indians 9-4.

Keuchel (11-3), who leads the league in wins and is second with a 2.14 ERA, is a strong candidate to start next Tuesday's game in Cincinnati. The left-hander scattered nine hits and struck out eight.

An anticipated pitching duel between Keuchel and Carlos Carrasco never materialized. Carrasco, who came within one out of a no-hitter against Tampa Bay on Wednesday, allowed five runs in four innings. The right-hander (10-7) gave up four runs in the first and Preston Tucker's solo homer in the fourth.

Tucker had a career-high four hits and added an RBI single. Jose Altuve, Houston's All-Star second baseman, matched his career-high 14-game hitting streak with two hits, including an RBI double.

CAVALIERS-MO WILLIAMS

UNDATED (AP) -- Mo Williams is heading back to Cleveland to team up with LeBron James again.

Williams tweeted on Monday night that he is going back to the Cavaliers, where he was an All-Star playing alongside James in 2009. A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press it's for two years and $4.3 million. The person requested anonymity because the deal has not been announced.

Williams started last season with the Minnesota Timberwolves and was traded to the Charlotte Hornets, where he averaged 17.2 points in 27 games.

The Cavaliers were in need of a quality backup point guard with the ability to score behind starter Kyrie Irving.

Williams spent two and a half seasons with the Cavaliers before being traded to the Clippers in 2011.

Top-seed Novak Djokovic (NOH'-vak JOH'-kuh-vich) has moved into the quarterfinals, completing a 6-7, 6-7, 6-1, 6-4, 7-5 comeback win over Kevin Anderson. The match was suspended at two sets all by darkness Monday and the two had to endure a brief delay of the restart due to rain.

Djokovic has earn a date with reigning U.S. Open champ Marin Cilic (CHIHL'-ihch) in the quarterfinals.

MLB -SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- An All-Star wannabe and a player who has already made it, make up the pitching match-up when Washington continues its home series against Cincinnati.

Max Scherzer goes for the Nationals a day after being named to the National League squad. He's 9-6 with a 1.82 ERA for the NL East leaders. The right-hander is 3-1 with a 1.05 ERA in his last four starts, including a no-hitter June 20 against Pittsburgh.

Johnny Cueto (KWAY'-toh) gets the start for the Reds a day after being selected as one of the five players on the fan ballot for the final position on the NL roster. Voting closes Friday.

The Rays and Royals are set for a day-night doubleheader at Kauffman Stadium, a day after their game was postponed as tornado sirens blared across the Kansas City metro area. Matt Moore will pitch the opener for Tampa Bay in his second start since returning from Tommy John surgery.

Athletics ace Sonny Gray starts at Yankee Stadium. It'll be his first appearance since June 25, shortly before he was hospitalized for salmonella. Gray is 9-2 with an AL best 2.09 ERA.

Rangers right-hander Yovani Gallardo (gy-AR'-doh) takes a scoreless string of 29 1-3 innings into his start against the visiting Diamondbacks. He has the longest shutout streak in the majors this year.

GOLF-TRUMP

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) -- The PGA of America is moving its Grand Slam of Golf from Donald Trump's golf course in Los Angeles.

Trump says he met with the PGA of America and both sides agreed it would be best to not play the 36-hole exhibition at Trump National Golf Club.

The Republican presidential candidate has come under fire for calling Mexican immigrant criminals and rapists. That has prompted several businesses to cut ties with Trump.

The 36-hole Grand Slam of Golf is for the major champions of the year.

GOLF-STALLINGS SUSPENDED

UNDATED (AP) -- Scott Stallings has been suspended for three months for violating the PGA Tour's anti-doping policy.

Stallings says in a statement that he took a supplement to help with chronic fatigue in February. He says when he realized it was on the tour's list of banned substances, he notified the tour.

Stallings is the third player to be suspended since the anti-doping policy began in 2008. The 30-year old is the first PGA Tour winner to be suspended.

LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) -- The USGA says the caddie for Sei Young Kim was removed from the U.S. Women's Open for taking photos of internal notes on the course setup.

Paul Fusco will not be allowed to caddie when the tournament starts Thursday at Lancaster Country Club.

Matters like hole locations are not available to players until the day of the tournament.

Fusco previously has worked for Paul Casey and Steve Flesch on the PGA Tour, and for Na Yeon Choi on the LPGA Tour.

NBA-GRIZZLIES-GASOL

GIRONA, Spain (AP) -- NBA center Marc Gasol (guh-SAWL') has confirmed that he will sign a new five-year contract with the Grizzlies.

The 30-year-old free agent tells Spanish media he will stay at Memphis. His deal is expected to be worth more than 100 million dollars.

The 7-foot-1 Marc Gasol is coming off the best season of his seven-year NBA career. He averaged 17.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists last season for Memphis.

NBA-WARRIORS-CELTICS TRADE

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- A person with knowledge of the deal says Golden State has agreed to trade former All-Star forward David Lee to Boston for Gerald Wallace.

Lee injured his left hamstring in the final preseason game and his role diminished with the emergence of Draymond Green, the runner-up for defensive player of the year.

The NBA champion Warriors have been looking to trade Lee this summer to limit the team's luxury tax hit next season. He's due about $15.4 million in the final year of his contract.
