Cubs Shut-Out The Pirates
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Kyle Hendricks rediscovered his 2016 form, limiting the Pittsburgh Pirates to four hits over six innings to outduel Gerrit Cole and lead the Chicago Cubs to a 1-0 win on Tuesday night. Hendricks (2-1) struck out two and walked three in easily his best start this year. The struggling Pirates managed just four singles off Hendricks and didn't reach third base until he was out of the game. Wade Davis worked a perfect ninth for his fifth save as the Cubs won for the sixth time in seven games. Addison Russell doubled in the second off Cole (1-3) and scored when second baseman Alen Hanson airmailed first base on a Jason Heyward grounder, the Pirates' major league-high 20th error this season. They've also allowed 15 unearned runs, the most in the big leagues.

NFL Condtionally Reinstates Steelers Bryant
PITTSBURGH (AP) - The NFL has conditionally reinstated Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant from his yearlong suspension. The decision could give the team a big boost for the 2017 season. Bryant was suspended in March 2016 for a second violation of the league's substance abuse policy. The league said Tuesday that Bryant may work out at the team facility and participate in meetings.

NBA Playoffs
HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Rockets have advanced to the NBA's Western Conference semifinals by knocking off the Thunder, 105-99 in Game 5. James Harden had 34 points and Lou Williams added 22 to help Houston reach Round 2 for the second time in three seasons. Russell Westbrook scored 20 of his game-high 47 points in the third quarter, but he shot just 2-for-11 in the final period while the Thunder were wasting a five-point lead.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The Spurs own a three-games-to-two lead in their NBA first-round series after Kawhi (kah-WY') Leonard scored 28 points in a 116-103 win over the Grizzlies. San Antonio was 14-for-28 from 3-point range, with Patty Mills hitting 5 of 7 while scoring 20 points. Mike Conley scored 26 points and tried to keep the Grizzlies in the game by providing seven points during a 17-3 run that cut San Antonio's lead to 87-83 with nine minutes left.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Gordon Hayward scored 27 points and the Utah Jazz grabbed a 3-2 lead in their NBA first-round series by topping the Clippers, 96-92 in Los Angeles. Rodney Hood scored 16 points for the Jazz, including three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter. Chris Paul led the Clippers with 28 points and J.J. Redick added 26.
