UNDATED (AP) — The New York Yankees hold a half-game lead over the Boston Red Sox in the American League East. Brett Gardner hit a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning in a 5-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. It was the Yankees' 6th straight win. The Red sox won a thriller as Sandy Leon slid into home plate and avoided the tag on Eduardo Nunez's groundout in the 10th inning for a 9-8 win over the Kansas City Royals. The Royals fell three behind Cleveland in the central as the Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4. Pinch hitter Brandon Guyer was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the ninth inning.

UNDATED (AP) — The Chicago Cubs lead the National League Central by a game-and-a-half over the Brewers after Jason Heyward homered in the 11th inning against Milwaukee, giving the Cubs a 2-1 win. The Washington Nationals lost to the Colorado Rockies 4-2 but still hold a big lead in the NL East. The Los Angeles Dodgers beat the San Francisco Giants 2-1 and continue to cruise in the NL West.

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says "everything's in place" for an NFL decision over a possible suspension of Ezekiel Elliott and that his star running back met recently with league officials. Elliott, the NFL rushing leader last season as a rookie, could be suspended over a domestic incident with his then-girlfriend last year even though prosecutors in Ohio declined to pursue the case. Commissioner Roger Goodell has the authority to suspend players without convictions under the league's personal conduct policy.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles had a rocky practice Saturday, tossing five interceptions including three in 11-on-11 drills and two in seven-on-sevens. Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said he would need to review practice video before deciding how many of the interceptions were Bortles' fault. The Jaguars have shown strong for Bortles publicly despite a subpar season in 2016.

BRIDGEND, Wales (AP) — Bernhard Langer shot a bogey-free 6-under 65 on Saturday at Royal Porthcawl to take a four-stroke lead in the Senior British Open. The 59-year-old German star is in position for his fifth victory in the last 10 major championships. He had a 5-under 208 total. Corey Pavin was second, also shooting 65 in some afternoon rain and wind gusting to 20 mph. Langer has a record nine senior major titles.
