WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Nationals tied a franchise record with eight home runs, including two apiece by Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman, and Max Scherzer pitched six innings of three-hit ball in a 15-2 rout of the fading Milwaukee Brewers today. Washington matched two major league records in a seven-run third inning: Most consecutive home runs (four) and most home runs in an inning (five).

CLEVELAND (AP) — Trevor Bauer pitched a season-high eight innings, Francisco Lindor singled to break a tie in the seventh and the Cleveland Indians won their seventh straight game today with a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Cleveland is on its longest winning streak of the season and is a season-high 10 games over .500. The Indians completed a 7-0 homestand.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Stephen Strasburg has been placed on the 10-day disabled list by the Washington Nationals, who want the standout right-hander to rest his elbow by missing a turn in the rotation. The Nationals describe the injury as a "right elbow nerve impingement." The move is retroactive to July 24. Strasburg is 10-3 with a 3.25 ERA in 20 games. He was removed from his last start after just two innings on July 23 in Arizona.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh says Joe Flacco will miss at least the first week of training camp because of a back injury. Harbaugh says the Ravens likely will bring in another quarterback and haven't ruled out signing Colin Kaepernick. He played in 12 games for San Francisco last season, throwing for 2,241 yards with 16 touchdowns and four interceptions. There is some familiarity because Kaepernick played for Harbaugh's brother, Jim, with the San Francisco 49ers. He led them to the 2013 Super Bowl, where they lost to the Ravens.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Cincinnati cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones has accepted his one-game suspension for an offseason misdemeanor conviction. And he teared up today over the unwavering support he's received from Bengals owner Mike Brown. Jones is suspended by the NFL for the season opener as a result of his confrontation with hotel security personal and an obscenity-filled tirade against arresting police officers. In his first public comments since the suspension, Jones accepted responsibility for his actions and said he's ready to move on.
