DEVILS-BLUE JACKETS

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Jack Johnson's backhander 56 seconds into overtime lifted the Columbus Blue Jackets past the New Jersey Devils 3-2 on Tuesday night, extending their winning streak to seven.

It was the Devils' sixth straight loss (0-5-1). New Jersey has scored seven goals during the skid.

Brandon Dubinsky scored on a penalty shot, Nick Foligno had a power-play goal, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 24 saves as the Blue Jackets matched a season-high for consecutive wins. Ryan Johansen had two assists.

Johnson skated from left wing through the slot and flipped a shot that got through traffic and by Cory Schneider for the winner.

Mike Cammalleri scored a power-play goal in the first period and added a short-handed tally with 2:29 left in regulation for New Jersey. Schneider had 28 saves. Eric Gelinas added two assists.

REDS-BREWERS

PHOENIX (AP) -- Jay Bruce snapped a spring slump with a three-run homer among his two hits and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Milwaukee Brewers 10-4 on Tuesday.

Bruce, who was hitting .162 coming in, scored twice and singled during a five-run sixth inning.

Michael Lorenzen helped his cause in a bid for the Reds' final rotation spot by allowing four hits and one run over four innings against the Brewers' opening-day lineup.

Reds closer Aroldis Chapman left the game after pitching to one batter in the fifth inning for precautionary reasons. There were initial concerns about his right hamstring, but Chapman said there was no injury. It may have been more of a miscommunication, Reds manager Bryan Price said.

Ryan Braun had an RBI single in the first inning for the Brewers. Adam Lind and Khris Davis had RBI singles in the sixth.

Mike Fiers, who will be the No. 5 starter for Milwaukee, allowed only three hits over five innings but walked four.

MARINERS-INDIANS

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Felix Hernandez left in the second inning of his final tuneup before Seattle's opener. Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon didn't last much longer.

McClendon was ejected in the fourth inning of Cleveland's 8-6 win over Seattle on Tuesday.

Brandon Moss' two-run homer in the first gave the Indians a 4-3 lead against King Felix, who allowed seven runs, five hits and two walks in 1 2-3 innings.

Michael Bourn had an RBI double in the third, Michael Brantley was hit by a pitch, and Carlos Santana's two-run double finished Hernandez, who starts Monday's opener against the Los Angeles Angels.

After Bruce Chen threw close to and then behind Rickie Weeks in the bottom half, plate umpire Alan Porter warned both benches. McClendon walked out of the dugout and was ejected before he got to the third-base line.

McClendon went back to the dugout briefly, then realized there is no tunnel and the clubhouse is down the right-field line. Porter questioned McClendon's presence and the manager, with large gestures, explained why he was on the field.

Destined for Triple-A Columbus, Chen and gave up a home run to Weeks leading off the game and allowed four runs and eight hits in 4 1-3 innings. He struck out five and walked none.

MIJARES SUSPENDED

NEW YORK (AP) -- Pitcher Jose Mijares has been suspended for 50 games under baseball's minor league drug program following a second positive test for a drug of abuse.

The 30-year-old left-hander last pitched in the major leagues with San Francisco in 2013. He agreed to a minor league contract with Cincinnati's Louisville team on Dec. 28 and was released March 23.

His suspension, announced Tuesday, will start when he signs with another big league organization.

Mijares has a 6-11 record and 3.23 ERA in 324 relief appearances for Minnesota (2008-11), Kansas City (2012) and the Giants (2012-13). He faced one batter in the 2012 World Series, retiring Detroit's Prince Fielder on a groundout leading off the ninth inning of San Francisco's 8-3 win in Game 1.

Of the 44 suspensions under the minor league program this year, 24 have been for drugs of abuse.

FOOTBALL PLAYER-TRIAL

CINCINNATI (AP) -- A jury has acquitted a University of Cincinnati backup quarterback of an assault charge, after he testified in court that a group of young men taunted him with racist remarks shortly before he punched one.

The Hamilton County jury found Jarred Evans not guilty of assault Monday, and Judge Robert Taylor declared a mistrial on a disorderly conduct count. Evans, 22, is black and claimed he was acting in self-defense after four young men directed racist comments at him.

Evans was suspended from the team last October after he was charged. A family spokeswoman says he hopes to be back on the field for spring practices.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Evans still faces sentencing April 28 after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor count of obstructing official business.
