INDIANS-ASTROS

HOUSTON (AP) -- Corey Kluber struck out a career-high 14 in seven innings and the Cleveland Indians halted their four-game losing streak with a 4-2 win over the Houston Astros last night.

Kluber (16-9) allowed one run and seven hits to earn his third straight win. His previous high for strikeouts was 13 against the Chicago White Sox on May 4.

Yan Gomes' two-run homer off Darin Downs in the sixth increased Cleveland's lead to 4-1.

Cody Allen got the last out in the eighth and pitched the ninth for his 21st save.

Michael Bourn scored on Carlos Santana's groundout in the first, and the Indians went up 2-1 in the fourth when Lonnie Chisenhall scored on an error by Robbie Grossman after Gomes singled to left field.

REDS-CUBS

CHICAGO (AP) -- Jake Arrieta took a no-hit bid into the eighth inning before giving up Brandon Phillips' one-out double, the only blemish for the Chicago Cubs pitcher in a 7-0 shutout of the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night.

Arrieta (9-5) struck out 13 and walked one in his first major league complete game. He was five outs from the first no-hitter at Wrigley Field in 42 years when Phillips drove an 0-2 pitch to deep left-center, just beyond the desperate dive of center fielder Matt Szczur on the warning track.

It was the third time this season Arrieta has flirted with a no-hitter.

He carried a perfect game into the seventh inning against Cincinnati on June 24 before Billy Hamilton singled. In his next outing, the right-hander held Boston hitless until Stephen Drew singled with two outs in the eighth.

BROWNS-GORDON ARRESTED

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- A prosecutor says suspended Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon will receive probation and undergo a substance-abuse assessment after pleading guilty to a drunken-driving charge in North Carolina.

Acting Wake County district attorney Ned Mangum says Gordon received a 60-day suspended jail sentence and one year of unsupervised probation Tuesday.

The Pro Bowler is serving an NFL imposed season-long suspension for a failed marijuana test, though that could be reduced under proposed drug policy changes .

For his DWI, Gordon must comply with any treatment recommended through the substance-abuse assessment, pay a $100 fine and court costs, and perform community service. His driver's license was also suspended.

Gordon's attorney, Trey Fitzhugh, entered the plea on Gordon's behalf on a charge of driving while impaired from a July arrest in Raleigh.

BENGALS MOVES

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Bengals put tight end Alex Smith on injured reserve Tuesday, ending his season and cutting deeper into Cincinnati's depth at the position.

Smith hurt his left biceps during a 24-10 win over Atlanta on Sunday. The Bengals (2-0) also are missing tight end Tyler Eifert, who is out for at least eight games with an elbow injury.

The Bengals signed free-agent tight end Kevin Brock to fill Smith's spot. The second-year player opened camp with Cincinnati and was waived on Aug. 26. He has played in six games with Buffalo and Kansas City.

The Bengals also released tight end Ryan Otten from the practice squad and signed offensive lineman Emmett Cleary, a first-year player waived by Oakland last month.

LEBRON-BANNER

CLEVELAND (AP) -- A 10-story tall LeBron James could tower over downtown again.

Sherwin-Williams Co. has asked the city for approval to hang a new banner of James on its headquarters across the street from Quicken Loans Arena, the Plain Dealer reported Tuesday.

The banner is similar to the iconic one that was in place for years before being taken down after James signed with the Miami Heat in 2010.

The city's planning commission released an image of the banner, which has a likeness of James, his arms outstretched and wearing a jersey that says "Cleveland" on the back, beneath a cloud of chalk dust, which he tossed into the air as part of his pregame ritual when he previously played for the Cavs. There is also a Nike logo in the upper right corner.

James re-signed as a free agent with the Cavs this summer.
