Indians rally for 4-3 win over Royals
Michael Brantley's sacrifice fly capped Cleveland's three-run eighth inning, rallying the Indians to a 4-3 win over the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night.
Held to one run and three hits over seven innings by Ervin Santana, the Indians finally strung something together in the eighth off Kelvin Herrera and Tim Collins. Michael Bourn and Jason Kipnis delivered RBI hits before Brantley drove in Mike Aviles with the go-ahead run.
Cody Allen , whose throwing error in the eighth helped the Royals take a 3-1 lead, got the win. Vinnie Pestano gave up three singles and a walk in the ninth but managed to get his second save.
Pirates end Latos' streak, beat Reds 4-0
Pedro Alvarez singled home a pair of runs in the first inning, and the Pittsburgh Pirates ended Mat Latos' streak of 21 regular-season starts without a loss, beating the Cincinnati Reds 4-0 on Tuesday night.
Latos hadn't lost a regular-season game since last August, setting a club-record streak of avoiding defeat. He couldn't overcome Pittsburgh's three-run first inning.
Charlie Morton was better during his second start since returning from elbow surgery. He gave up three singles and threw 61 pitches in 5 1-3 innings, starting the Pirates toward their NL-leading 12th shutout.
The Reds managed only four hits while getting shut out for the second time in their last four games.
Serena Williams comments on rape case in interview
Serena Williams says in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine that, while not blaming the victim in the Steubenville rape case, "she shouldn't have put herself in that position."
The comment is made in one paragraph of a lengthy story posted online Tuesday about Williams, a 16-time Grand Slam title winner who is ranked No. 1 heading into Wimbledon, which starts next week.
Two players from the celebrated Steubenville, Ohio, high school football team were convicted in March of raping a drunken 16-year-old girl; one of the boys was ordered to serve an additional year for photographing the girl naked. The case gained widespread attention in part because of the callousness with which other students used social media to gossip about it.
3 more plead guilty in probe of Pilot Flying J
Three more employees of the truck stop chain owned by the Cleveland Browns' owner and Tennessee's governor have pleaded guilty in what authorities call a scheme to cheat trucking firms out of rebates.
Regional sales manager Kevin Clark pleaded guilty to mail fraud in federal court in Knoxville on Tuesday.
Knoxville media report that Holly Radford, an account manager, and salesman Jay Stinnett entered similar pleas later in the day.
Prosecutors allege that the sales team of Pilot Flying J, the country's largest diesel retailer, short-changed trucking companies to boost profits and commissions.
Pilot is run by Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, the brother of Gov. Bill Haslam. Jimmy Haslam has denied any personal wrongdoing.
Two other Pilot employees pleaded guilty last month.
Predators renew affiliation with ECHL's Cyclones
The Nashville Predators have extended their deal with the Cincinnati Cyclones as their affiliate in the East Coast Hockey League.
General manager David Poile announced the deal Tuesday.
The Cyclones have been Nashville's second developmental team since the 2007-08 season, and Cincinnati won Kelly Cup titles in 2008 and 2010. The Cyclones just won their third divisional title and reached their fourth conference final since 2008.
Cincinnati also serves as a developmental team for the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League, Nashville's top minor league affiliate.
Ky. man says he's target of hacking investigation
A central Kentucky man says he's the target of a federal hacking investigation tied to an ongoing inquiry into the rape of a teenage girl in Ohio.
Deric Lostutter of Winchester told The Associated Press on Tuesday he leaked documents related to the investigation. Two high school football players in Steubenville, Ohio, were sentenced to time in a juvenile detention facility after being convicted.
Last fall, bloggers and hacker activists filled cyberspace with allegations that not enough was being done to investigate the entire case. In January, a 12-minute video that first appeared on YouTube after the rape and mocked the attack was reposted.
Lostutter says he didn't hack into the computer where the video was stored, only made the information public.
The FBI raided Lostutter's home in April.
