Giants Beat Pirates
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Reliever Jean Machi and the San Francisco Giants took advantage of a huge baserunning blunder by Pittsburgh, tagging out two runners who wandered away on the same play and beating the Pirates 7-5 Wednesday to end a six-game losing streak. San Francisco stopped a skid that matched its longest of the season, and avoided the club's first winless homestand of at least seven games in the 15-year history of AT&T Park. The Pirates, who had won three in a row, led 5-4 in the sixth when Chris Stewart drew a one-out walk with runners on second and third.
Machi (6-0) got the ball back and noticed Travis Snider had left second base, apparently thinking it was a bases-loaded walk. Machi threw to shortstop Brandon Crawford to trap Snider. Crawford returned the ball to Machi, who fired to third baseman Pablo Sandoval to get Gaby Sanchez as he tried to go home.

Wild Things Top Aviators
C.J. Beatty broke a 2-2 tie in the sixth with a two-run homer to lift the Washington Wild Things to a 4-2 win over the Rockford Aviators on Wednesday night. Rockford’s Dusty Robinson hit a two-run shot to tie the game in the top of the sixth, but Beatty cranked a mammoth long ball to center to give Washington the lead for good on the bottom of the sixth. Zac Fuesser (7-1) was excellent on the mound with 6.2 innings of work, yielding just two runs. Closer Jonathon Kountis collected his 23 rd save of the season with a 1-2-3 ninth inning. Nick Grim (0-2) pitched well in a spot start for Rockford, but suffered the loss with four runs allowed in 6.2 innings.

Steelers Will Retire Joe Greene's No. 75
LATROBE, Pa. (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers are retiring Hall of Fame defensive end Joe Greene's number No. 75. The team announced Wednesday that Greene will be honored during a ceremony on Nov. 2 when the Steelers host the Baltimore Ravens. Greene, the No. 1 overall pick in the 1969 NFL draft, helped Pittsburgh win four Super Bowls during his 13-year career. The 10-time Pro Bowler was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1987. The announcement comes just over a month after the passing of former Steelers coach Chuck Noll, who drafted Greene to become the cornerstone of the "Steel Curtain" defense. Greene is the second Steeler to have his number retired. The team retired defensive lineman Ernie Stautner's No. 70 in 1964.

Rookie Looks Impressive
LATROBE, Pa. (AP) - Pittsburgh Steelers rookie linebacker Ryan Shazier is making a quick impression during his first training camp. The 15th overall pick in this year's draft is drawing raves from teammates and coaches for his speed and athleticism.

Cowboys Sign Smith
OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have signed tackle Tyron Smith to an eight-year, $98 million contract extension that theoretically locks up the Pro Bowl left tackle through the 2023 season. The extension includes a $10 million signing bonus and $40 million in guaranteed money.

Bengal Cornerback Suspended
CINCINNATI (AP) - Bengals cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris has received a two-game suspension without pay from the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Lewis-Harris can participate in preseason games and practices but can't play in a regular-season game until Sept. 21 at home against Tennessee.

Judge Issues Ruling In Concussion Suit
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A federal judge has rejected an attempt by seven former professional football players to intervene in a tentative class action settlement of concussion claims that would cost the NFL at least $765 million. The players object to the settlement, calling it a "lousy deal" for ex-players whose symptoms don't qualify them for compensation.

Workers Get Sick Cleaning Up Pauley Pavilion
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say 6 people who were helping clean up UCLA's flooded Pauley Pavilion have been treated for exposure to carbon monoxide. The arena's court was covered with up to 10 inches of water Tuesday after a 30-inch water main broke nearby and sent water cascading onto campus. Los Angeles fire spokeswoman Katherine Main says the men were helping pump water out of the home of UCLA's basketball team when they fell ill from generator exhaust Wednesday evening.
