NEW YORK (AP) — "Deflategate" is threatening to run into September. Judge Richard Berman met with representatives of the NFL and Patriots QB Tom Brady and has warned the league that he can overturn the NFL's four-game suspension, and is pushing for an out of court settlement.

NEW YORK (AP) — It was a big afternoon at Yankee Stadium for Greg Bird. The Yankees rookie connected on the first two home runs of his major league career in helping the AL East-leading Yankees beat the Minnesota Twins 4-3.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers' chances of contending for a postseason berth will improve if Derek Holland delivers more pitching performances like today's. Holland won in his return from a four-month stint on the disabled list, and Texas hit back-to-back-to-back home runs in the seventh inning as the Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners 7-2 to stay in the thick of the AL wild card race.

MILWAUKEE (AP)— Khris Davis powered a pair of home runs and drove in five runs and Ryan Braun added another to help Milwaukee outscore Miami 8-7 and avoid a sweep at Miller Park. Braun's homer was his 252nd, making him the Brewers all-time leader.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The San Francisco Giants are scheduled to place Hunter Pence on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique, a move timed with activating Nori Aoki (a-OH'-kee), who has been on the DL for a week with a concussion. Manager Bruce Bochy (BOH'-chee) said the team believes Pence well be back by the end of the 15 days.
