MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The Baltimore Orioles are off to a rather slow start after winning the American League East last season, but they have a chance to take over the division lead by the end of the weekend.

J.J. Hardy singled home the winning run with two out in the bottom of the ninth as the Orioles beat Tampa Bay 2-1. The Rays grabbed an early lead on Steven Souza Jr.'s second-inning homer, and it remained 1-0 until Chris Davis homered for the fourth time in as many games.

Darren O'Day got the victory after Miguel Gonzalez held the Rays to three hits over eight innings.

The Orioles are a game under .500 following their second straight win, but they are 1 1/2 games behind the first-place New York Yankees.

In other major league finals:

-- Cincinnati had dropped 10 of 11 before Joey Votto (VAH'-toh) and Todd Frazier hit solo homers in the Reds' 5-2 triumph over Washington. It was not immediately known after the game why Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg left the game after 16 pitches.

-- Lorenzo Cain hit a tiebreaking, RBI double in a three-run eighth as the Royals beat the Cubs 8-4 in Chicago to halt a four-game slide. Alcides (al-SEE'-dehs) Escobar homered on the game's first pitch before Alex Gordon and Salvador Perez went deep.

-- Justin Bour belted a three-run homer and Dan Haren gave up a pair of runs and four hits in seven innings of Miami's 4-3 win over the Mets in New York. Matt Harvey served up Bour's homer, ruining a performance in which he allowed just five other hits while striking out 11 in eight innings.

-- Colorado beat Philadelphia 4-1 behind Chad Bettis, who had a no-hitter until Cody Asche (ASH'-ee) hit a one-out single in the eighth. Troy Tulowitzki (too-loh-WITS'-kee) smacked a pair of solo homers while going 4-for-4.

MLB-NATIONALS-WERTH

UNDATED (AP) -- Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth is out indefinitely after another test found that he broke his left wrist two weeks ago. Werth has been unable to swing a bat since he was hit on the left wrist by a pitch from the Padres' Odrisamer Despaigne (oh-DREE'-sah-meer deh-SPAHN'-yay). A CT scan revealed two fractures in the wrist.

Manager Matt Williams says there's no timetable for Werth's return.

Werth is batting .208 with two homers and 12 RBIs.

In other injury news:

-- Houston right-hander Scott Feldman is expected to miss about six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. Feldman is 4-4 with a 4.80 ERA in 10 starts this year.

-- The Mariners put lefty James Paxton on the 15-day disabled list with a strained middle finger tendon on his throwing hand. He felt it after 2-0 pitch to Brandon Moss in the fifth inning Thursday and was immediately removed.

NBA FINALS

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The Golden State Warriors say Klay Thompson has a concussion and will not return to practice until he is symptom free. Thompson was kneed in the head by Houston's Trevor Ariza (ah-REE'-zuh) on Wednesday while the Warriors were locking up their first berth in the NBA Finals since 1975. The Warriors are optimistic Thompson will be cleared before they host the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 next Thursday.

NBA-MAGIC-SKILES

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Scott Skiles is back with the Orlando Magic, this time as the 12th head coach in franchise history. Skiles was a member of the Magic's inaugural team in 1989-90 and played point guard for a total of five seasons in Orlando as part of his 10-year playing career. He has been head coach of Phoenix, Chicago and Milwaukee, compiling a 443-433 record with five playoff appearances over 13 seasons.

Interim coach James Borrego took over the Magic after Vaughn's dismissal and went 10-20.

NBA-HOWARD

HOUSTON (AP) -- Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard has been suspended without pay for one game after getting his fourth flagrant foul point in the postseason. The foul in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals was ruled a common foul during the game, but was upgraded to a flagrant foul 1 after a review by the league office.

Howard will serve his suspension in the first game next season that he is physically able to play.

SOCCER

ZURICH (AP) -- Sepp Blatter has been re-elected as president of FIFA (FEE'-fuh) for a fifth term. The 79-year-old earned another four-year term when Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan conceded defeat after losing 133-73 in the first round.

Blatter's re-election comes just two days after arrests and indictments of soccer officials in Switzerland and the U.S. on bribery, racketeering, money-laundering and other charges.

Argentine federal police and Interpol agents have raided the businesses run by three Argentines who are fugitives after being charged in the FIFA scandal. The three were named in a U.S. indictment alleging they bribed soccer officials for rights to international tournaments. Argentine prosecutors later charged the three men with tax fraud, racketeering and money laundering.

FRENCH OPEN

PARIS (AP) -- Second-seed Roger Federer has rolled into the fourth round of the French Open with a straight sets win on Day 6. The winner of 17 Grand Slam titles took just 1 hour, 29 minutes to advance. He's seeking his second French Open title and first since 2009.

Fourth-seed Tomas Berdych and eighth-seed Stan Wawrinka (vah-VRINK'-ah) also advanced.

Defending champ Maria Sharapova (shah-rah-POH'-vah) led the women's advance into the fourth round with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Samantha Stosur.

NASCAR-FEDEX 400

DOVER, Del. (AP) -- Denny Hamlin has claimed his first pole of the season by turning a lap of 160.121 mph at Dover International Speedway.

Hamlin edged Martin Truex Jr. on the final qualifying run to take the top spot for Sunday's race.

Kyle Larson and Matt Kenseth will start in the second row, just ahead of Joey Logano and Kevin Harvick.

PGA-BYRON NELSON

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Three players shared the lead when the second-round of the AT&T Byron Nelson was halted by darkness.

Curran fired a 63 that puts him at minus-9, tying him with Jimmy Walker and first-round leader Steve Bowditch. Walker shot a 3-under 66, and Bowditch followed Thursday's 62 with a 68.

Overnight rain turned one of the signature par 4s at the saturated TPC Four Seasons into a pitch-and-putt par 3 at 105 yards for the round. Nearly five inches of rain fell on the already rain-soaked course.
