MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The start of two excellent late-August series top the schedule in baseball today.

In Washington the National League East-leading Nationals, who have won 10 straight, open up a weekend series against the second-place Giants of the NL West. The Nationals start the day with a seven-game lead over the Braves while the Giants are 3 1/2 games back of the Dodgers. Record-wise the Nats are an NL-best 73-53 while the Giants are 67-59.

Later in the night the Angels, leaders of the American League West, open up a series with the second-place Athletics in Oakland. The Angels, who have won four straight and eight of 10, top the slumping A's, who have lost eight of their last 10, by two games. L.A. has a mark of 76-50 while the A's are 74-52. The Angels currently have the best record in baseball with a .603 winning percentage.

Adam Wainwright of the Cardinals is out to become baseball's first 16-game winner of the season tonight. The Cards are in Philadelphia for a date with the Phillies. On the year Wainwright is 15-7 with a sterling 2.40 earned run average.

The rest of the schedule tonight looks like this:

The Yankees are home to the White Sox, Houston is at Cleveland, the Blue Jays are hosting the Rays, Seattle is in Boston, the Reds are entertaining the Braves, Kansas City is playing at Texas, the Twins open up a series with the Tigers, Pittsburgh is at Milwaukee, the Rockies are hosting the Marlins, San Diego is at Arizona and the Dodgers are meeting the Mets in Los Angeles.

MLB-ORIOLES

CHICAGO (AP) -- Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado (muh-CHA'-doh) will not be ready to play when he's eligible to return from the disabled list on Aug. 27. He sprained his right knee while taking a swing against the Yankees on Aug. 11.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter says that there probably will be updates on Machado in the next two days.

The 2013 Gold Glove winner is hitting .278 with 12 homes and 32 RBIs in 82 games. He missed the first month of the season while recovering from surgery on his left knee.

NBA-TRADE

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The reported Minnesota-Cleveland NBA trade that would bring Kevin Love to Cleveland and send the last two No. 1 picks in the NBA draft to the Timberwolves has taken on a new look. A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that the Timberwolves will receive Philadelphia 76ers power forward Thaddeus Young as part of the new three-team deal. The person requested anonymity because an official announcement has not been made.

The Wolves agreed weeks ago to send Love to Cleveland for No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins, former No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett and a 2015 No. 1 draft choice they obtained from Miami.

The deal now includes the Sixers, who will get guard Alexey Shved (sh-VEHD') and forward Luc Mbah a Moute (BAH'-ah MOO'-tay) along with that Miami No. 1 pick. The key for the Wolves was getting Young, who averaged a career-high 17.9 points last season.

NFL-BROWNS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- How much does it costs to flip your middle finger at an opposing teams bench in an NFL game? Cleveland backup quarterback Johnny Manziel (man-ZEHL') has found out the hard way. A person familiar with the penalty says the Browns rookie has been fined $12,000 by the NFL for flipping his middle finger at Washington's sideline.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the ruling has not been made public.

Manziel said he was reacting to taunting by the Redskins during Monday night's nationally televised game. The action didn't help his chances to win Cleveland's starting job, which went to veteran Brian Hoyer.

NFL-CHEIFS

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Chiefs offensive tackle Donald Stephenson has been suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's performance-enhancing substance policy. The loss of Stephenson is massive blow to an already unsteady offensive line.

Stephenson remains eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games, including Saturday night's contest against Minnesota. He will miss games against Tennessee, Denver, Miami and New England and be eligible to return to the active roster Sept. 30.

PGA-BARCLAYS

PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) -- Jim Furyk (FYOOR'-ihk) is among three players tied for the clubhouse lead in the second round of The Barlcays. Joining him at 7-under is Kevin Chappell (CHAP'-uhl) and Brendon Todd. Chappell had the best round of the day, a 4-under-67. Furyk and Todd shot 2-under 69 while Chappel posted a 67.

LPGA-CANADIAN WOMEN'S OPEN

LONDON, Ontario (AP) -- South Korea's So Yeon Ryu (soh yahn yoo) shot a 6-under 66 to take the clubhouse lead in the second round of Canadian Women's Open. She's 15-under for the two rounds.

Anna Nordqvist (NORD'-kwist) is in the clubhouse at 10-under after a 3-under.69.

CHAMPIONS TOUR

SNOQUALMIE, Wash. (AP) -- The opening round of the Champions Tour Boeing Classic is being contested today. Bernhard Langer (LAHN'-gur) enters the event fresh off another win. He finished first in last week's Dick's Sporting Goods Open. The victory was his fifth of the year. The 56-year-old German has 23 wins on the 50-and-over tour.
