All eyes on Wide Receiver Mike Wallace

By John Evenson

All eyes will be on Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace this Sunday in Indianapolis, as the big money acquisition had major struggles in his Dolphins debut. Wallace could only muster up one catch for 15 yards in the Dolphins' 23-10 win in Cleveland on Sunday, and reportedly told some writers after the game to go ask the coach why he struggled, suggesting that the game plan was out of his hands.

He clarified his statements on Monday saying that he was mad at himself after the game, and really didn't have the answers at the time as to why he struggled.

UNDATED (AP) -- The Miami Marlins finished taking three of four in Atlanta by rallying with a run in the ninth off Braves closer Craig Kimbrel in a 3-2 victory. The loss drops the Braves a game and a-half back of idle Washington in the NL East race.

It's just the second in 10 series that Miami has won at Turner Field. Jarrod Saltalamacchia (sahl-tah-lah-MAH'-kee-ah) drove in the go-ahead run. Salty went 3-for-4 with two doubles. Kimbrel fell to 0-2.

Marlins closer Steve Cishek (SEE'-chehk) earned his 24th save in 27 chances, retiring Freddie Freeman, Justin Upton and Jason Heyward on fly balls in the ninth.

In action around the majors:

-- Brandon Moss hit a grand slam and the Oakland Athletics gave Jeff Samardzija (suh-MAHR'-juh) more run support than he has had all season in a 13-1 rout of the Houston Astros. Jed Lowrie had three hits and drove in a run for the A's, who have the best record in baseball at 63-38.

-- Marcus Stroman took a no-hitter into the seventh inning as Toronto shutout the Red Sox 8-0. Shane Victorino's bloop single to lead off the seventh broke up the no-hit bid and was the only hit for Boston. Juan Francisco had the big day at the plate with four runs batted in. Stroman struck out seven and walked two in seven innings of work. The rookie right-hander improved to 5-1 with a 1.54 ERA in seven home starts.

-- Brandon McCarthy delivered another strong pitching performance in the Yankees 4-2 win over Texas. He gave up a run on four hits in six solid innings to improve to 2-0 with a 1.45 ERA since being acquired from Arizona earlier this month. Fellow newcomer Chase Headley provided an RBI single in New York's sixth win in seven games.

-- Chase Utley's tie-breaking single in the fifth inning proved to be the difference as Philadelphia edge San Francisco 2-1. The win helped the Phillies avoid a four-game sweep at home. The NL West-leading Giants completed a 5-2 road trip.


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Seattle Mariners have reacquired first baseman Kendrys Morales in a trade with the Minnesota Twins for minor-league pitcher Stephen Pryor. Morales spent under seven weeks with the Twins, who signed him to boost their lineup as a designated hitter but used him often at first base with Joe Mauer (MAW'-ur) injured. Morales hit .234 in 39 games with 11 doubles, one home run and 18 RBIs.

In other baseball news:

-- Former baseball star Chuck Knoblauch has been charged with misdemeanor assault after authorities in Houston say he hit and pushed his ex-wife. Knoblauch was released on $10,000 bond. His first court date is set for July 30. The four-time All-Star previously served a year of probation after being convicted of hitting his previous wife in 2010.


OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- Running back Ray Rice of the Ravens has received a two-game suspension from the NFL following his offseason arrest for domestic violence. Rice will miss the season opener against AFC North champion Cincinnati on Sept. 7 and the Sept. 11 game on Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Rice was arrested following an altercation in which he allegedly struck then-fiancee Janay Palmer.

In other training camp news:

-- The Browns may soon learn whether they'll have Josh Gordon this season. The Pro Bowl wide receiver will have an appeal hearing with NFL officials in New York on Aug. 1. That's what a person with knowledge of the meeting told The Associated Press on Thursday. Gordon is facing a possible one-year ban for violating the league's substance abuse policy for at least the third time.

-- The threat of being cut hasn't served as a deterrent for suspended Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon. He was arrested in the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond on a complaint of marijuana possession. Blackmon is suspended without pay indefinitely for repeated violations of the NFL's substance-abuse policy.

-- The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms on a new four-year contract with receiver Roddy White. He holds the team records for career receptions and yards receiving. White battled ankle and hamstring injuries last season that kept him out of three games.

---- Former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, who is recovering from cancer treatments, will participate in the coin toss at the Hall of Fame game on Aug. 3. The Hall of Famer will represent Buffalo as an honorary captain, while former linebacker Harry Carson will be the New York Giants' honorary captain when the teams face off in the first NFL preseason game.


MONTREAL (AP) -- The Montreal Canadiens has avoided arbitration with center Lars Eller, agreeing to a four-year contract with the 25-year-old. Eller has 45 goals and 103 points in 286 games.

He was scheduled to have an arbitration hearing on Friday. Eller reportedly asked for $3.1 million for next season while the team offered $1.65 million.


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Blake Griffin has withdrawn from playing for the U.S. national basketball team this summer.

The Los Angeles Clippers star was one of 19 players selected to the roster from which the World Cup team will be chosen. But Griffin says he's putting all his offseason energy into preparing for the upcoming NBA season.


MONTREAL (AP) -- Michael Putnam and Tim Petrovic (peh-TROH'-vihk) both shot 6-under 64 to grab the lead after the first round of the Canadian Open. Kyle Stanley and amateur Taylor Pendrith is a shot back. Charl Schwartzel (SHAR'-uhl SHWORTS'-uhl) is among 11 players two shots off the lead.


OWINGS MILLS, Maryland (AP) -- Yani Tseng's birdie putt on the 18th hole gave Taiwan a sweep of the Americans in the opening round of the LPGA International Crown.

The U.S. team of Stacy Lewis, Paula Creamer (KREE'-mur), Lexi Thompson and Cristie Kerr was the only one of the eight teams to not earn a point on day one.

The Americans will take on Spain on Friday.


PORTHCAWL, Wales (AP) -- Bernhard Langer shot a 6-under 65 to lead after the first round of the British Senior Open. Langer holds a two-shot lead over Bob Tway. Fred Couples had a par-71 while Colin (KAH'-lihn) Montgomerie finished with a 1-over 72. Tom Watson opened with a 3-over 74.
