DETROIT (AP) – Yoan Moncada hit a mammoth home run in the first inning, and the Chicago White Sox eventually broke the game open with five runs in the seventh en route to a 7-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers. Carlos Rodon allowed a run and three hits in six innings for Chicago, which was without manager Rick Renteria and shortstop Tim Anderson, who were serving suspensions.

CHICAGO (AP) – Kyle Hendricks struck out a season-high 11 over seven scoreless innings in his first win, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-1. Hendricks became the third consecutive Cubs starter to go seven innings without allowing a run after Jose Quintana and Cole Hamels did it in back-to-back shutouts against Miami.

MILWAUKEE (AP) – Kiké Hernandez lined a three-run homer with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-3 for their sixth straight win. Five Dodgers relievers combined to limit Milwaukee to one run over the final 4 1/3 innings with Pedro Baez getting the win and Kenley Jensen finishing up for his seventh save. Christian Yelich hit his major league-leading 11th home run for Milwaukee.

NEW YORK (AP) – The Philadelphia 76ers are listing Joel Embiid as doubtful for Game 4 of their first-round series against the Brooklyn Nets this afternoon because of a sore left knee that caused him to miss Thrusday’s game. Embiid worked out today at the 76ers’ practice in New York, but coach Brett Brown said he didn’t have a gut feeling about whether his All-Star center would be able to go today. The 76ers rolled to a 131-115 victory without Embiid and lead the series 2-1.

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) – Cassius Winston says he is returning for his senior year at Michigan State, saying he has unfinished business. The All-American guard and Big Ten player of the year averaged nearly 19 points per game as a junior and broke a conference single-season record with 291 assists. Nick Ward is giving up his senior season with the Spartans to enter the NBA draft after averaging nearly 13 points and six-plus rebounds per game.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) – Shane Lowry was the leader when the rain-delayed second round of the PGA’s RBC Heritage was suspended by darkness at Hilton Head.
