ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jon Jay was hit by a pitch from J.J. Hoover with the base-loaded in the ninth inning, lifting the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds last night. Todd Frazier and Ryan Ludwick each drove in two for the Reds, who have lost four in a row.

WASHINGTON (AP) - A lawyer for Cincinnati Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon says a woman who has accused the player in a lawsuit of sexually assaulting her should have to reveal her name publicly. Simon's lawyer made his argument yesterday in federal court in Washington. The woman says in a court document that she worries Simon's fans may harass or hurt her if her name becomes public.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Cleveland Indians rallied to beat the Minnesota Twins 7-5 last night. Yan Gomes had three hits including a home run, and rookie pinch-hitter Tyler Holt hit a go-ahead two-run double in the sixth inning.

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Indians have signed reliever Scott Atchison to a contract for next season. Atchison's deal includes a team option in 2016. Financial terms were not immediately available. The 38-year-old has been a major contributor out of Cleveland's bullpen this season, going 6-0 with a 2.95 ERA in 53 appearances.

CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine says he's not ready to name his starting quarterback. Pettine had been expected to announce yesterday whether Brian Hoyer or Johnny Manziel would start the September 7th opener at Pittsburgh. Pettine says the coaching staff will meet tonight and could choose a starter then.

CLEVELAND (AP) - First-year Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt has hired former Milwaukee coach Larry Drew as one of his assistants. Drew went 15-67 in his only season in Milwaukee. He was expected to get a second year but was fired so the Bucks could hire Jason Kidd.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State says quarterback Braxton Miller will miss the 2014 season after reinjuring his throwing shoulder. The two-time Big Ten player of the year left practice in pain on Monday after making a throw. Ohio State says Miller will require surgery. It's a huge blow to the nation's Number 5 team, which already has several major holes to fill on offense.

BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) - Mid-American Conference Commissioner Jon Steinbrecher says the league's new 13-year media rights agreement with ESPN provides long-term stability to the conference. The new deal runs through the 2026-27 season.
