Baseball could have two 13-game winners by the end of the night.....

     UNDATED (AP) - Baseball could have two 13-game winners by the end of the night. In St. Louis this evening, the Cardinals are facing Tampa Bay, which has won its last five games, and toeing the rubber for the Cards is Adam Wainwright. He has won 12 of 16 decisions this season with an amazing 1.83 earned run average. Tonight's start is Wainwright's first since starting the All-Star game last Tuesday in Minneapolis. The Cardinals are percentage points back of Milwaukee for first-place in the National League Central with a record of 54-45. The Brewers are home this evening to Cincinnati.
     The other 12-game winner in action tonight is Detroit's Rick Porcello. He is 12-5 with a 3.39 ERA and tonight is facing the Diamondbacks in Arizona. The 54-41 Tigers top the American League Central by 6  1/2 games over Cleveland.
     Along with the Rays the Red Sox have won five straight as well and tonight they are playing the Jays in Toronto. The longest current losing streak is six as held by Colorado. The Rockies will attempt to snap the skid with a home game against Washington.


     NEW YORK (AP) - Trying to add offense at third base, the New York Yankees have acquired Chase Headley from the San Diego Padres for infielder Yangervis Solarte and right-hander Rafael De Paula.   The 30-year-old Headley can become a free agent after this season. He's hitting .229 with seven homers and 32 RBIs but has a .339 average since July 4. He was a Gold Glove winner two years ago, when he hit .286 with 31 homers and a National League-leading 115 RBIs.   As part of the deal, the Padres will pay $1 million of the $3,968,443 remaining of his $10,525,000 salary this year.
     The 27-year-old Solarte was hitting .336 as of May 14 but just .180 since and was sent to Triple-A for a week this month. The 23-year-old DePaula was 6-5 with a 4.15 ERA in 17 starts and three relief appearances this year with Class A Tampa.

     CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly close to signing No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins. A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cavs will sign Wiggins in the near future. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team is not commenting on its plans. There has been speculation the Cavs might trade Wiggins to Minnesota as part of a deal to get Kevin Love.


      LOS ANGELES (AP) - A person close to the case says Steve Ballmer has met with Donald Sterling, who is resisting selling the Los Angeles Clippers to the former Microsoft CEO for $2 billion.   The person spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.
     The person says the meeting Monday afternoon lasted 90 minutes at Donald Sterling's Beverly Hills home and was held at his request. Sterling's attorneys, an attorney for his estranged wife Shelly Sterling and Ballmer's attorney were also present.   The person says niceties were exchanged but no agreement was reached.   The meeting came as the parties prepared to return to a trial over whether Shelly Sterling has sole authority to sell the team.
