Bell Surges, Bucs Win 6th Straight
DENVER (AP) - Rookie Josh Bell had a career-high four hits, Andrew McCutchen had three hits and reached base five times, and the surging Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Colorado Rockies 13-5 on Friday night. Rookie Trevor Williams overcame a rough start to pitch 6 2/3 strong innings for his first win in more than a month. Pittsburgh has won a season-high six straight and 12 of 14 to move a game above .500 for the first time since starting the season 3-2. The Pirates (49-48), who tied a season high with 18 hits, are within two games of first-place Milwaukee in the NL Central. Pittsburgh jumped on Colorado starter Jeff Hoffman (6-2) and chased him three batters into the fourth inning. Bell had an RBI single in the first and a three-run double in the second when the Pirates took the lead for good. Bell had a season-high four RBIs. Hoffman struggled in his worst outing since allowing nine runs in 3 2/3 innings against Arizona exactly one month earlier. He walked four, hit a batter and left after Bell's third hit of the game.


Pacman Jones Suspendid Once Again
CINCINNATI (AP) - Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones has been suspended for the regular-season opening game after his role in an altercation at a downtown Cincinnati hotel earlier this year. Jones pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge from the January incident, the latest in a history of off-the-field legal issues for the NFL veteran. The NFL says the suspension was for a violation of its personal conduct policy. Police said Jones kicked and used head-butting as he was arrested for allegedly assaulting a hotel employee. Jones can appeal the suspension within three days. Otherwise, he will be eligible to return to the active roster on Sept. 11 following the Bengals' opener against the Baltimore Ravens. Jones may participate in all preseason practices and games.

Three Americans In Top 5 On British Open Leaderboard
SOUTHPORT, England (AP) - Despite a few wayward shots, Jordan Spieth has captured the lead going into the weekend at the British Open.With a short game as sharp as it has been all year, Spieth seized control with a 1-under 69 that gave him a two-shot lead over Matt Kuchar going into the weekend. U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka was three shots out of the lead, and Gary Woodland put together a 69. He was five shots behind.Six other Americans were at even-par 210, including a pair of surprises. One is Kent Bulle from Glasgow, Kentucky, who shot a 72. He qualified by winning the Argentina Open. The other is Chan Kim, who grew up in Hawaii and went to Arizona State. Kim plays mainly in Asia and qualified by winning the Mizuno Open in Japan.


Report: Cav's Considering Rose
CLEVELAND (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cleveland Cavaliers are discussing a contract with former NBA MVP Derrick Rose. The team is discussing a one-year deal with Rose, said the person who spoke Thursday to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the talks. Cleveland is limited in what it can offer the free agent guard, whose career has been slowed by knee injuries. Rose made $21.3 million while playing in 64 games for the New York Knicks last season. ESPN.com first reported the Cavs' interest in the 28-year-old Rose. The Cavs signed free agent Jose Calderon last month as a backup to All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving. Rose, if healthy, would be a better option than the 34-year-old Calderon. Cleveland struggled to fill the backup role after allowing Matthew Dellavedova to leave as a free agent following the 2016 championship season.
