RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated after speeding down a street in Raleigh on Saturday, bringing the troubled Pro Bowler's already cloudy future into more doubt.

Gordon was taken into custody after being pulled over for going 50 mph in a 35 mph zone on U.S. 70 in northwest Raleigh around 3 a.m. Saturday, police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.

The police report on Gordon's arrest wasn't finished, so Sughrue didn't know what type of vehicle Gordon was driving or what led the officer to suspect he had been drinking.

Gordon was released on bail. Court records did not list an attorney.

DETROIT (AP) — Anibal Sanchez was about halfway to a no-hitter when he allowed a home run to Tampa Bay's Logan Forsythe.

Then came a walk by Ryan Hanigan, and before Sanchez knew it, the Rays had broken the game open.

"I don't know when everything changed," Sanchez said. "I know we had a pretty good game plan going for four innings."

Sanchez allowed three runs in the fifth and four in the sixth, and the Detroit Tigers lost 7-2 to Tampa Bay on Saturday. Sanchez, the American League ERA champion last season, had gone 32 starts without allowing more than four earned runs.

Tampa Bay's Chris Archer (5-5) came within two outs of a complete game, holding the Tigers to six hits. The 25-year-old right-hander allowed solo homers to Alex Avila in the seventh and J.D. Martinez in the ninth.

Reds get 2 hits off Garza, fall to Brewers 1-0 PDF Print E-mail

CINCINNATI (AP) — Two hits, another 1-0 shutout. The Cincinnati Reds are wasting a lot of special pitching.

Matt Garza threw a two-hitter for his fourth career shutout, and the Milwaukee Brewers ended their four-game losing streak by beating Cincinnati 1-0 on Saturday night.

The Reds were blanked for the 10th time, including the third time in their last five games. Cincinnati has been shut out 1-0 at home three times this season, including opening day against St. Louis.

"The 1-0s are very frustrating," right fielder Jay Bruce said. "We have a capable offense."

They wasted a good performance by Homer Bailey. Aramis Ramirez singled home a run in the first off Bailey (8-5), who gave up seven hits through eight innings. Two Brewers were thrown out at the plate.

"I thought he pitched a great game," manager Bryan Price said. "He wasn't particularly sharp, gave up a couple of leadoff walks, but he was able to pitch around them. To compete for eight innings and hold them to one run was phenomenal."
France: NASCAR to discuss changes to 2015 schedule PDF Print E-mail

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — NASCAR Chairman Brian France said Saturday "robust" discussion will go into setting the 2015 schedule.
A revamped format to the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship this season, coupled with NBC taking over the second half of the television schedule next season, gives NASCAR an opportunity to make scheduling changes.
"There will be a robust discussion that will be for those reasons a more comprehensive look at what the best schedule will look like," he said.
France also noted multiple weather delays this year at several race tracks as reason for considering tweaks. Saturday night's scheduled race at Daytona was postponed until Sunday because of rain, and the season-opening Daytona 500 was stopped for more than six hours.
Bristol had a significant rain delay in March and Texas was postponed a day in April.
