KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) —Wins have been hard to come by this season for reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber. Cleveland's right-hander takes an 0-4 mark and 4.62 ERA to the mound for his start at Kansas City. The Royals handed Kluber one of his losses last month.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh's A.J. Burnett is off to one of the best starts of his 17-year career and is still winless heading into his start against Cincinnati.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay hopes to ride the momentum of its last-second 2-1 win over Montreal last night to a sweep of the Canadiens tonight. Tyler Johnson's goal with 1.1 seconds left last night put the Lightning up 3-0 in the NHL Eastern Conference semifinals heading into Game 4 tonight.
