PIRATES-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Eugenio Suarez had a sacrifice fly and an RBI double off 14-game winner Gerrit Cole, and the Cincinnati Reds extended their home-field success over the Pittsburgh Pirates with a 4-3 victory on Saturday night.

The Reds have won five of six against their Ohio River rival at Great American Ball Park this season. They are 9-3 against Pittsburgh overall.

Cole (14-5) leads the majors in wins, but three of his five losses have come against the Reds, a team he has never beaten. Jay Bruce added a run-scoring double as Cole fell to 0-4 in six career starts against the Reds.

Suarez got his third RBI of the night with a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning off newcomer Joe Blanton for a 4-2 lead.

INDIANS-ATHLETICS

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Marcus Semien homered to back a strong outing by Oakland newcomer Aaron Brooks and the Athletics beat the Cleveland Indians 5-1 on Saturday night to snap a three-game losing streak.

Brooks (1-0) allowed one run and five hits over 7-plus innings for his first career win. The right-hander, who joined Oakland as part of the June 28 trade that sent Ben Zobrist to Kansas City, struck out five and didn't walk a batter in his first start in more than 14 months.

Billy Butler and Sam Fuld had two hits apiece as the A's won for just the fifth time since the All-Star break.

Semien's home run off Cleveland starter Cody Anderson (2-3) in the seventh was his ninth of the season.

Lonnie Chisenhall homered off Brooks in the fifth for the Indians' lone run.

COLUMBUS-ORLANDO

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Cyle Larin scored twice to help Orlando City beat the Columbus Crew 5-1 on Saturday night.

Columbus (8-8-7) opened the scoring in the fifth minute. Justin Meram made a nice service in a crowded penalty area to a streaking Federico Higuain, who chipped it behind Tally Hall for his sixth of the season.

Orlando (7-9-6) evened it in the 18th. Servando Carrasco found Corey Ashe down the left wing. Ashe fed Larin in the center of the box and the rookie tapped it in for his 10th of the season.

Darwin Ceren gave Orlando a 2-1 lead in the 38th minute. His first attempt from the right side of the penalty area was knocked down, but he followed up with a strong right foot form the edge of the six-yard box to beat Steve Clark.

Larin, Aurelien Collin and Cristian Higuita added second-half goals for Orlando City.

HALL OF FAME-SEAU-DAUGHTER

CANTON, Ohio (AP) -- The Pro Football Hall of Fame will allow Junior Seau's daughter to speak in an interview after his bust is unveiled next weekend.

"Sydney will be given a chance to share thoughts about her father immediately following the unveiling of his bronzed bust," the Hall of Fame said Saturday night in a statement. "The unveiling, which typically features just the presenter and enshrinee, will include Sydney and Junior's three sons. Her remarks will be live and onstage in a fashion similar to interviews of returning Hall of Famers."

Seau killed himself in 2012.

The Hall of Fame also said Sydney will represent her father and be interviewed during the Thursday night Enshrinees' Gold Jacket Dinner, broadcast by the NFL Network.

"Our goal is to maintain our policy regarding enshrinement speeches, but also show compassion and understanding," Hall of Fame President David Baker said.

Hall policy does not allow live speeches during a posthumous induction.

OHIO STATE-MAVUNGA

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- North Carolina center Stephanie Mavunga is transferring to Ohio State, leaving the Tar Heels without their entire four-player recruiting class ranked No. 1 nationally in 2013.

The school announced the move Saturday. The 6-foot-3 junior averaged 12.5 points and 8.5 rebounds for North Carolina and earned All-ACC honors as a sophomore last year.

She will enroll at Ohio State this fall and redshirt this season while fulfilling transfer requirements. Mavunga will have two seasons of eligibility remaining beginning in 2016-17. She joins Sierra Calhoun, who transferred to Ohio State this summer after playing 13 games at Duke as a freshman.

Ohio State lost to North Carolina in the second round of the NCAA Tournament last season.
