Rivals Become Friends at North South Classic Pracitce

DAYTON -- At practice for the North South Classic players are enjoying the off-season and preparation for the all-star football game.
   For some it will be their last game, for others it will close out their high school football careers before going to college.
   Some of the Miami Valley's standouts that are playing in this game are cherishing the chance to not just suit up one more time but get to know some of those that they've competed against for years better.
   "It's a great experience because most of the kids on the team I've gotten the chance to play against and now I finally get the chance to play with them so I mean it's fun it's a lot different than normal at Springboro but it's something that I like," Springboro wide receiver and West Virginia commit DL Knock said.
   "It's fun and it's a blessing," Wayne defensive lineman and Ohio State commit BB Landers said.
   "Not a lot of people get selected to play in a game like this. There are a lot of kids at home sitting and just watching like 'I wish I had another chance to play' and you know you get to meet new people you use to playing against and you know you worried about beating their team and cracking heads but now you get to come together, meet new people, new personalities, make new friendships and brotherhood."

INDIANS-RAYS

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Mike Aviles homered on the first pitch of the 10th inning, giving the Cleveland Indians a 5-4 victory and four-game sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday.

Corey Kluber struck out 14 over eight innings. Brian Shaw (1-1) pitched one scoreless inning for the win, and Cody Allen struck out the side in the 10th to earn his 15th save in 16 opportunities.

Aviles homered off Xavier Cedeno (1-0), extending Tampa Bay's losing streak to five games. Michael Brantley had a RBI single and sacrifice fly for the Indians, who also got run-scoring singles from Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor.

MLS FINES

NEW YORK (AP) -- Toronto FC's Damien Perquis, Columbus Crew's Federico Higuain, New England's Kelyn Rowe and Real Salt Lake's Demar Phillips have been fined by MLS for infractions.

The MLS Disciplinary Committee fined the players undisclosed amounts on Thursday.

The infractions occurred in matches played last week -- Perquis (embellishment) against D.C. United; Higuain (simulation) against the Revolution; Rowe (hands to neck) against Columbus; and Phillips (failing to leave the field in timely manner after red card) against the New York Red Bulls.

CAVALIERS-MOZGOV

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cleveland Cavaliers center Timofey Mozgov has undergone successful right knee arthroscopic surgery and the team says he'll be out about six weeks.

The Cavaliers say Mozgov had the procedure Wednesday at the Cleveland Clinic Marymount Surgicenter.

Late last month, the team picked up the $5 million option on his contract for next season.

The 7-foot-1 center was acquired in a January trade from Denver in exchange for two first-round draft picks.

Mozgov transformed the Cavs on defense, giving them a rim-protecting big man after Anderson Varejao was lost for the season.

Mozgov, who will turn 29 in mid-July, averaged a career-high 10.6 points and 6.9 rebounds in 45 regular-season starts. He became a needed offensive option during the postseason, averaging 10.6 points and 7.3 rebounds in 20 postseason starts.
