NFL-BRADY LAWSUIT

NEW YORK (AP) -- Tom Brady's lawsuit against the NFL in which he wants his four-game suspension overturned will be heard in New York instead of Minnesota. Brady and the players' union filed their suit Wednesday in Minnesota. But the NFL already had filed papers Tuesday in New York, moments after announcing that Commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') upheld the suspension for Brady's involvement in the use of underinflated footballs in the AFC championship game.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Kyle ordered the transfer.

NFL-PATRIOTS

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Tom Brady received a big cheer from Patriots fans when he came out on the practice field for New England's first practice of training camp. The quarterback and team owner Robert Kraft both got a warm reception from the crowded bleachers full of fans, many wearing jerseys with Brady's No. 12.

Less supportive was the website that paid for a plane to buzz the field towing a banner that said, "Cheaters Look Up."

Prior to the practice coach Patriots coach Bill Belichick (BEHL'-ih-chik) had nothing new to tell reporters the day. When asked about the possibility of starting the season without quarterback Tom Brady as he faces a four-game suspension, Belichick continued to say he doesn't worry about things he has no control over.

Belichick says what's in the past doesn't concern him. And anything in the future beyond the day's practice isn't in his control, either.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

CHICAGO (AP) --Defending national champion Ohio State has suspended All-America defensive end Joey Bosa, receiver Corey Smith and H-backs Jalin Marshall and Dontre Wilson for its opening game at Virginia Tech. In a statement the school said the players violated department of athletics policy.

The Buckeyes open the season Labor Day night in Blacksburg, Virginia, against the only team to beat them last season.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Newly acquired closer Jonathan Papelbon came on in the ninth inning for the Nationals and in his first appearance with the team got the save. He sent down the side in order in a 1-0 win for the National League East leading Nats over the Marlins. Papelbon joined Washington earlier in the week in a trade with the Phillies. Starter Max Scherzer turned in another good performance going seven innings for his 11th win against 8 defeats. He allowed three hits while striking out six.

The lone run came on a home run by Ryan Zimmerman.

The two teams vying for supremacy of the American League West meet once again tonight as Houston entertains the Angels. The Astros have won the first two games of the three-game set to regain first place, by a game over the Angels. In tonight's game recently acquired lefty Scott Kazmir is pitching for the Astros against Matt Shoemaker.

Kansas City and Toronto open up a four-game series tonight north of the border. The Royals are firmly in first place in the American League Central while the Blue Jays are fighting with Baltimore for second place in the AL East as well as a wild card berth. The Royals are a league-best 61-39 while the Jays are playing .500 ball at 51-51.

The rest of the schedule has the Orioles hosting Detroit, Atlanta at Philadelphia, the White Sox in Boston, the Reds home to the Pirates, Colorado at St. Louis, the Cubs in Milwaukee, the Rangers entertaining the Yankees, Seattle at Minnesota and Oakland home to Cleveland.

MLB-TRADES

DETROIT (AP) -- Toronto's Blue Jays are now a very serious threat to clinch a post season berth in the American League. Just days after strengthening their offense and defense with the acquisition of All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (too-loh-WIHT'-skee) from Colorado, they've picked up All-Star left-hander David Price in a deal with Detroit. To get Price, who can become a free agent at the end of the season, the Jays gave up pitchers Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd and Jairo Labourt.

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Outfielder Brandon Moss has been traded by the Indians to the St. Louis Cardinals. In return, Cleveland receives minor league pitcher Rob Kaminsky.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A deal between the Phillies and Rangers involving Cole Hamels appears imminent. Two people familiar with the deal say the Phillies have agreed to trade the ace left-hander to the Rangers for a package of prospects. Both people spoke to The Associated Press late Wednesday night on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been finalized.

Hamels has a limited no-trade clause but does not have to approve a deal to the Rangers.

In his last outing with the Phillies Hamels tossed a no-hitter against the Cubs last Saturday at Wrigley Field.

NBA-KNICKS

NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Knicks have signed first-round draft picks Kristaps Porzingis and Jerian Grant. The 7-foot-3 Porzingis was the fourth overall selection in the recent draft and played in Spain the past three seasons. Grant, a 6-4 guard, was the 19th overall pick who averaged 14.6 points and 5.8 assists in four seasons with Notre Dame.

WOMEN'S BRITISH OPEN

TURNBERRY, Scotland (AP) -- The first round of the women's British Open is in the books at Turnberry in Scotland, and the leader is South Korea's Hyo Joo Kim after an opening round 7-under 65. New Zealand's Lydia Ko and American Cristie Kerr are tied for second at minus-6.

This is the fourth of the LPGA Tour's five major championships. Brittany Lincicome (LIHN'-sih-kohm) won the ANA Inspiration in April, Inbee Park took the Women's PGA Championship in June and Gee Chun won the U.S. Women's Open this month.
