Bellbrook playing for teammate - #Play4Payne

BELLBROOK -- On Janurary 19th Bellbrook players, coaches and family members got a phone call that made them fear the worst.
   On his way to church to see a friend get baptized junior Payne Sigman was in a car accident which has left him in a coma.
   After checking on their friend reactions were mixed from the team on whether or not they would play in upcoming basketball games. For Austin Hall it was almost instantaneous, that he wanted to play for his teammate that was in the hospital.
   The team hasn't missed a game since Payne's accident and Bellbrook won the first four games while the junior was in a coma.
   Not only are the Golden Eagles wearing shirts during warm-ups that say Play4Payne with his number (12), but opposing teams have been wearing similar shirts to show their support as well.

INDIANS-ASTROS

HOUSTON (AP) -- Carlos Carrasco threw a two-hitter with a career-high 12 strikeouts to lead the Cleveland Indians over the Houston Astros 2-0 Wednesday night.

Yan Gomes had an RBI single in the fourth inning and a run-scoring triple in the sixth.

Carrasco (8-5) walked one in his first career complete game. His previous best for strikeouts was 10 on Sept. 2 at Detroit, and his longest outing had been 8 2-3 innings on Sept. 7 at the Chicago White Sox.

The right-hander retired his first seven batters before walking Jon Singleton in the third. Carrasco did not allow a hit until Jose Altuve's infield single leading off the fourth.

Altuve had another infield single with two outs in the ninth, snapping a streak of 17 straight batters retired by Carrasco.

REDS-CUBS

CHICAGO (AP) -- Kyle Hendricks kept up his impressive rookie season, pitching seven strong innings as the Chicago Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-1 Wednesday night for a sweep.

Chris Valaika, Ryan Kalish and Luis Valbuena each had a run-scoring hit as the Cubs won their third straight. They improved to 38-36 at Wrigley Field despite being 16 games under .500 overall.

The Reds have dropped four in a row overall. They scored just one run in the three-game series against the Cubs, and were held to one hit in a shutout loss Tuesday night.

Hendricks (7-2) allowed one run and seven hits. He walked none, struck out four and left with a 2.28 ERA.

Hector Rondon pitched the ninth for his 25th save in 29 chances.

Daniel Corcino (0-1) lost in his second big league start.

BENGALS-AJ GREEN

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Green didn't practice on Wednesday because of an injured toe on his right foot, but expected improvement later in the week.

Green hurt the foot during Cincinnati's opening win in Baltimore and stayed in for the full game. He was limited in practice last week and tried to play Sunday, but was forced to the sideline during the opening series.

The Bengals beat the Falcons 24-10 to stay undefeated. It's unclear whether Green will be available this Sunday against Tennessee (1-1). Cincinnati has its bye the following week, so Green will have time to rest.

He failed to get a reception on Sunday for the first time in his career.

TITANS-LOCKER

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Titans quarterback Jake Locker is coming off a game in which Tennessee's offense couldn't have been much worse in the first half, and he says that's on him.

His coach and his teammates think Locker is taking too much of the blame.

Ken Whisenhunt said Wednesday that Locker missed on a couple throws but the Titans coach has seen other NFL quarterbacks turn in ugly performances. Whisenhunt likes how Locker bounced back in the second half, crucial for a quarterback playing for a new contract in the final year of his rookie deal.

Locker started the season strong with a win in one of his best games.

Now both he and the Titans (1-1) need to make sure they're all on the same page before visiting Cincinnati (2-0) on Sunday.

BROWNS-INJURIES

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Cameron and starting linebacker Barkevious Mingo both returned to practice after missing last week with shoulder injuries.

Cameron and Mingo sat out Sunday's home win over New Orleans. They took part in the early stages of Wednesday's practice while the media were allowed to watch.

Browns coach Mike Pettine said Cameron and Mingo would be limited and doesn't know if they'll play this week against Baltimore.

Pettine expects running back Ben Tate (sprained right knee) to miss his second straight game. Tate was on a stationary bike as his teammates worked out. He got hurt in the season opener at Pittsburgh.

Cameron initially injured his shoulder during training camp and then aggravated it after he fell following a 47-yard reception against the Steelers.
