UNDATED (AP) -- J.D. Martinez and Yoenis Cespedes (yoh-EHN'-ehs SEHS'-peh-dehs) hit consecutive RBI singles in the seventh inning, and ex-Yankee Joba Chamberlain (JAH'-buh) got Jacoby Ellsbury to hit into a crucial double play in the eighth in the Detroit Tigers' 2-1 victory over the New York Yankees.

CC Sabathia (suh-BATH'-ee-uh) fell to 0-3 despite facing the minimum number of hitters through the first six innings. But with two out and a man on second in the seventh, the Yankees intentionally walked Victor Martinez. J.D. Martinez followed with a sharp single. Cespedes' single scored Victor Martinez.

The Yankees had men on first and third with one out in the eighth when Chamberlain relieved Alfredo Simon (SY'-muhn), who is 3-0 with the victory. Ellsbury's hard grounder went right to second baseman Ian Kinsler, and the double play ended the threat.

In other baseball:

---- Cincinnati topped the Milwaukee Brewers 6-1. Anthony Desclafani improved to 2-0 with eight shutout innings. Zach Cozart and Joey Votto (VAH'-toh) homered.

-- Boston parlayed three Baltimore errors into five unearned runs in a rain-shortened 7-1 Patriots Day win over the Orioles. The game was called after 6 1/2 innings. Boston scored four runs in the third when losing pitcher Wei-Yin Chen walked four and made an error, and third baseman Manny Machado committed another error.


NEW YORK (AP) -- The NL East-leading Mets have lost two players to injury. Catcher Travis d'Arnaud (dar-NOH') will be out more than three weeks, and left-handed reliever Jerry Blevins will miss more than six weeks after both were injured against Miami Sunday. The team says that d'Arnaud will be in a splint for three weeks after his right hand was broken when he was hit by a pitch while Blevins will be in a splint for six weeks after a line drive fractured his throwing arm.


NEW YORK (AP) -- Atlanta pitcher Andrew McKirahan has been suspended for 80 games following a positive test for a banned substance under Major League Baseball's drug program. The reliever is the fifth big league pitcher in 25 days disciplined for using performance-enhancing drugs. The 25-year-old left-hander has a 4.15 earned run average in three appearances this season.


ATLANTA (AP) -- Hawks center Al Horford is not sure if he'll be able to play in Game 2 of the first-round playoff series against Brooklyn because of a dislocated finger. Horford injured his right pinky while going for a rebound in Atlanta's Game 1 win Sunday. He was able to return to the court with his finger taped but says "there's still some question" about his status for Wednesday.


NEW YORK (AP) -- Guard Lou Williams of the Toronto Raptors has been named winner of the NBA's Sixth Man Award. In his 10th season of play Williams averaged a career-high 15.5 points a game. Williams received 78 first-place votes and 502 total points from a panel of 130 sports writers and broadcasters. Isaiah Thomas of the Boston Celtics finished second with 324 points with two-time winner Jamal Crawford of the Los Angeles Clippers third.


SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Coach Todd McLellan has parted ways with the San Jose Sharks after seven seasons. The two sides agreed to the move after the Sharks missed the playoffs and finished 12th out of 14 teams in the Western Conference. McLellan goes out as the franchise's winningest coach with a 311-163-66 regular-season record. That was third best in the league since he took over before the 2008-09 season.


UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) --Washington center Eric Fehr (FAYR) will miss at least the next two playoff games against the New York Islanders because of an upper body injury. He was hurt in Washington's 2-1 overtime loss on Sunday.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A person with knowledge of Adrian Peterson's offseason workouts tells The Associated Press that the star running back has decided not to attend Minnesota's spring strength and conditioning program.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation. This was the first day Vikings players gathered at team headquarters for supervised workouts.

Peterson's absence was expected, of course, given his expressed disinterest in returning to the organization. Even in a normal year, Peterson's presence during offseason workouts has been rare.


Tebow finds a team

PHILADELPHIA -- Former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow (TEE'-boh) has signed a one-year contract with the Eagles.

The 27-year-old becomes part of a busy depth chart as the Eagles already have quarterbacks Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley and G.J. Kinne on the roster.
