CLEVELAND (AP) — At some point, Baker Mayfield was going to assume Cleveland's starting job and become the franchise quarterback, the future.

A look at what's happening around the majors today: BACK ON THE BUMP Trevor Bauer returns to the mound for AL Central champion Cleveland when the Indians host Boston in a potential playoff preview.

Less than a month into the college football season, the results haven't been particularly good for the Big Ten. Traditional powers Wisconsin, Michigan and Michigan State have lost nonconference games.

For the second straight year, Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher will meet in a mentor-mentee matchup. All signs point toward Saban teaching him another lesson when top-ranked Alabama hosts 22nd-ranked Texas A&M on Saturday in one of two games between Top 25 teams.

NEW YORK (AP) — Sitting on Alex Cora's desk in the visiting manager's office at Yankee Stadium were two bottles of chilled champagne and a handwritten note congratulating him.

NEW YORK (AP) — Luke Voit and the New York Yankees set two home run records with one swing of the bat. The brawny first baseman hit a two-run shot to straightaway center field in the second inning Thursday night against Boston, giving the Yankees a major league-record 12 players with at least 10 home runs this season.

CLEVELAND (AP) — For the first time in 635 days, the Cleveland Browns won. Baker Mayfield showed them how. The No. 1 overall pick replaced injured starter Tyrod Taylor and sparked the Browns, who got two 1-yard touchdown runs from Carlos Hyde and beat the New York Jets 21-17 on Thursday night for their first win since Dec.

There have been some classic games between the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins. While Sunday's meeting doesn't carry the weight of a playoff contest between two powers, it certainly brings plenty of intrigue.

TORONTO (AP) — Tampa Bay's stirring September run took a sudden sour turn in Toronto. Justin Smoak homered with two outs in the ninth inning to give the Blue Jays a 9-8 victory over the Rays on Thursday night, dealing a blow to Tampa Bay's wild-card playoff hopes.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Baker Mayfield's been thrown into the mix for the Browns. The No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft replaced Tyrod Taylor after Cleveland's starting quarterback sustained a concussion in the first half of Thursday night's game against the New York Jets.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — With a postseason berth within their sights, the Oakland Athletics are leaving nothing to chance. Marcus Semien had three hits and a career-high five RBIs, Stephen Piscotty homered and drove in four runs and the Oakland Athletics hammered the Los Angeles Angels 21-3 on Thursday.

NEW YORK (AP) — Conor McGregor bellied up to his makeshift bar, plopped his dress shoes on the table and took a swig of his own Irish whiskey.

ATLANTA (AP) — The crowd at East Lake was larger and louder than it has been in five years, which was the last time Tiger Woods was at the Tour Championship.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — What so many sex-abuse survivors on the U.S. Olympic team have been waiting to hear is that someone in power was listening.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Football fans haven't seen two Los Angeles NFL teams go head to head since 1994. The quarterback matchup awaiting them this Sunday could make it worth the long wait.

MIAMI (AP) — Derek Jeter signaled Thursday that Don Mattingly is expected to return next year as manager of the Miami Marlins, providing some dugout continuity for a last-place team in transition.

The World Anti-Doping Agency declared Russia's scandal-ridden drug-fighting operation back in business Thursday, a decision designed to bring a close to one of sports' most notorious doping scandals but one bitterly disputed by hundreds of athletes and described as "treachery" by the lawyer for the man who exposed the corruption.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Upon further review, a New Jersey man will get his full $82,000 payout on a disputed $110 sports bet. And several other gamblers who made similar bets at wildly inflated odds will also be paid in full, FanDuel said Thursday.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — It was decades ago, but Sara Schwendinger remembers perfectly the panic she felt when she realized a car was following her as she ran along a country road at dusk, just outside her small Wisconsin hometown.

NEW YORK (AP) — Montreal Canadiens forward Max Domi has been suspended for the remainder of the NHL preseason after punching Florida defenseman Aaron Ekblad during an exhibition game.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The chorus of "The Storm Is Over" by gospel singer Kirk Franklin played as Antonio Brown approached his locker on Thursday, an intentionally apt choice by Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker/DJ Vince Williams to address the latest bit of drama surrounding his superstar teammate.

TENERIFE, Spain (AP) — It's been a whirlwind week for Breanna Stewart, Sue Bird and Jewell Loyd. The trio won a WNBA championship with the Seattle Storm and then dashed off to play for USA Basketball in the FIBA Women's World Cup.

Patrick Mahomes is good. 2018 David Johnson looks nothing like 2016 David Johnson. The Rams defense has not only replaced the Seahawks as the NFC's most dominant unit, but may be the best the NFL has to offer.

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — In a concession to women's soccer, FIFA will start funding business-class flights for some of the Women's World Cup teams traveling to France for next year's tournament.

MIAMI (AP) — Jimmy Butler knows that NBA players can force their way into trades. Forcing their way into a trade that suits the player, that's an entirely different story.
