PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ike Davis became the first player to hit grand slams for different teams in the same April, and Neil Walker had a winning run single with two outs in the ninth inning as the Pittsburgh Pirates twice overcame deficits to beat the Reds 6-5 Monday night. Pittsburgh trailed 2-0 before Davis' fourth-inning homer off Mike Leake.

CINCINNATI (AP) - The Bengals have exercised a 2015 contract option for receiver A.J. Green, letting them turn their focus to an extension for quarterback Andy Dalton. Green was the fourth overall pick in the 2011 draft and was entering the final season on his deal.

CINCINNATI (AP) - Kevin Huber has gained back the 15 pounds he lost while his jaw was wired shut, forcing him to drink his meals. He no longer wears a neck brace to help a cracked vertebra heal. The Bengals punter is nearly back to normal after recovering from one of the most painful hits of the 2013 season.

MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) - Morehead State has hired Greg Todd as its women's basketball coach. Todd comes to the Eagles after going 157-64 in eight years at Transylvania University, including 26-3 last season to set a school record for winning percentage.
