CHICAGO (AP) - The San Francisco Giants could file a protest Wednesday over Tuesday night's rain-shortened 2-0 loss to the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. Heavy rain that lasted just a few minutes flooded the infield after the grounds crew failed to get the tarp fully in place. The game was called after a four-and-a-half hour delay. Edwin Jackson will pitch the Cubs host the Giants again Wednesday night.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Lance Lynn gets the pitching assignment Wednesday night as the St. Louis Cardinals go for a three-game sweep of Cincinnati. Lynn has 13 wins and a 5-1 career record against the Reds. He's up against 15-game-winner Johnny Cueto (KWAY'-toh).

CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago White Sox try to avoid a three-game sweep Wednesday night at the hands of Baltimore. Hector Noesi pitches the series finale against the Orioles. Jose Abreu (uh-BRAY'-oo) of the Sox hit his 32nd home run Tuesday night. He's tied for the major league lead.

NEW YORK (AP) - Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls is expected to play Wednesday night as the U.S. national basketball team plays the Dominican Republic in another exhibition game ahead of the World Cup. Rose has missed two days of practice because of what's being called knee soreness. Rose has missed most of the last two seasons with knee injuries.
