DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 5-1 yesterday to avoid a four-game sweep. Drew Smyly allowed four hits in seven innings and Torii Hunter hit a two-run homer for the Tigers. Josh Tomlin allowed four runs, six hits and a walk over 4 1-3 innings for the Indians. Cleveland had reached a season-high three games over .500 by winning four in a row, before yesterday's loss.

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Yankees beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-2 yesterday. Jacoby Ellsbury got four hits and scored the winning run in the ninth inning on Brian McCann's pop-fly single that dropped among three Reds in shallow right field. Ellsbury and Derek Jeter each had an RBI single for the Yankees, who finished a three-game sweep in their first series after the All-Star break. Hiroki Kuroda outpitched Cincinnati ace Johnny Cueto.

NEW YORK (AP) - Cincinnati Reds general manager Walt Jocketty says he would like to add a bat before the July 31 trade deadline. His preference would be someone who can play multiple positions. The Reds' lineup is missing two of its best hitters, with Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips on the disabled list, and Jay Bruce has been enduring a subpar season at the plate.

SYLVANIA, Ohio (AP) - Seventeen-year-old Lydia Ko broke free from a late tie with So Yeon Ryu, hitting a wedge to 4 feet for birdie on the 72nd hole yesterday to win the Marathon Classic in Sylvania. She became the youngest player to top $1 million in career earnings on the LPGA Tour.
