MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The Baltimore Orioles couldn't do much against Drew Smyly tonight.

Smyly gave up just two hits in seven innings as Tampa Bay downed the Birds 3-1. He and the Rays' bullpen blanked the O's after Chris Davis homered in the second inning.

Smyly is 3-0 with a 0.88 ERA in his last four starts.

The Rays did their scoring in the first two innings on a fielder's choice, an RBI single by Wil Myers and Ben Zobrist's sacrifice fly. The scoring came against Kevin Gausman, who gave up two earned runs and six hits in four innings.

Elsewhere in the majors:

-- Ike Davis hit a big homer for the second straight game, a two-run blast in the second inning of Pittsburgh's 3-1 win over St. Louis. Jeff Locke (lahk) gave up a run and six hits in 7 1/3 innings to outpitch Adam Wainwright, who was trying to become the majors' first 16-game winner of the season.

-- Jason Heyward hit a leadoff homer and Julio Teheran allowed a run and three hits in 6 1/3 innings of Atlanta's 3-2 triumph over the New York Mets. Zack Wheeler lost for the first time in 11 starts despite allowing just two earned runs and four hits in seven innings.

-- Mat Latos (LAY'-tohs) struck out 10 over seven-plus innings as Cincinnati downed the Chicago Cubs 7-5. Cubs outfield prospect Jorge Soler (soh-LEHR') homered in his first major league at-bat.

-- In Seattle, Rougned Odor (ROOG'-nehd oh-DOHR') hit a third-inning grand slam and Colby Lewis tossed a seven-hitter as Texas clobbered the Mariners 12-4. Leonys Martin (lee-OH'-nihs mahr-TEEN') smacked a two-run homer and had three RBIs, while Tomas Telis (toh-MAHS' TAY'-lees) added a three-run double as part of the Rangers' 11-hit attack.

-- Pinch-hitter Danny Valencia smacked a go-ahead, three-run homer in the seventh inning to lift Toronto over Boston 5-2. Jose Bautista also homered to back Marcus Stroman, who allowed one earned run and five hits in 7 2/3 innings.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL-USC/SHAW

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Steve Sarkisian (sahr-KEE'-zee-an) hasn't coached a game for Southern California, but he's already dealt with his first firestorm since leaving Washington after last season.

Trojans cornerback Josh Shaw has been indefinitely suspended by the team after admitting he lied to school officials about how he sprained his ankles last weekend, retracting his story about jumping off a balcony to save his drowning nephew. Sarkisian said that honesty and integrity must be at the center of his football program, and he believes Shaw will learn from this.

The school didn't explain in its statement how Shaw actually was injured, but USC officials say they regret posting a story lauding Shaw's tale on their website Monday. Shaw is a fifth-year senior, a team captain and a key starter in USC's defensive secondary.

NFL-BROWNS

UNDATED (AP) -- Cleveland receiver Josh Gordon has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy again. He missed two games last season due to another violation of the policy but still let the team with 1,646 yards in receptions.

Gordon will have to apply for reinstatement following the season.

The 23-year-old had appealed his yearlong suspension for marijuana use and met with a league arbitrator in New York on Aug. 4. Arbitrator Harold Henderson upheld the suspension.

NFL-PANTHERS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Carolina quarterback Cam Newton says he feels great and "there's no doubt" in his mind he'll be ready to play in the Panthers season opener Sept. 7 against Tampa Bay. The fourth-year quarterback is recovering from a hairline fracture to multiple ribs and says he's improving with each day.

Newton has never missed a start in three seasons of pro ball.

NFL-MOVES

UNDATED (AP) -- Bengals Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict has signed a three-year extension on that runs through the 2017 season and will pay him a maximum of $20.05 million. Burfict is entering the final year on his original deal that will pay him a salary of $570,000. Under his extension, he'll make $10 million through next summer in salary and bonuses.

Burfict is the leader of a defense that finished third in the NFL last season in yards allowed.

Elsewhere;

-- Tennessee has agreed to a multi-year contract extension with defensive lineman Jurrell Casey. Multiple media outlets say it's for $36 million over four years, with $20.5 million guaranteed. Casey is coming off a career year with 10.5 sacks, 90 tackles and 10 quarterback pressures.

-- Arizona has signed defensive tackle Tommy Kelly, two days after he was cut by the New England Patriots. The 33-year-old is coming off surgery to repair a torn ACL but was playing with the Patriots' first-team defense this preseason before he was cut.
