CLEVELAND — This summer saga, packed with drama, celebrity and clumsiness, isn't quite over for the Browns.

Hoyer vs. Manziel marches on.

Cleveland first-year coach Mike Pettine still hasn't chosen his Week 1 starting quarterback and that's not his fault. Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel haven't convinced him — or anyone, really — that they deserve the job.

ST. LOUIS — Jon Jay was hit by a pitch from J.J. Hoover with the base-loaded in the ninth inning, lifting the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night.

Matt Holliday drew a leadoff walk to start the winning rally. He advanced to third on Matt Adams' single. After Peter Bourjos ran for Holliday, Jhonny Peralta walked to load the bases. Hoover (1-10) then plunked Jay to force in Bourjos with the winning run.

Pat Neshek (6-0) pitched one inning of scoreless relief as the Cardinals won for the fifth time in six games and remained 2 1/2 games behind Milwaukee in the NL Central.

DELPHOS — A more veteran-savvy Jefferson girls soccer unit took advantage of a far younger Van Wert crew, opening the 2014 campaign with a 13-0 mashing of the Lady Cougars on a brilliant Monday late afternoon at the St. John’s Annex.

“It was a nice season-opening match for us. Van Wert usually is a good one but they are such a young and inexperienced team right now; they will get better,” Jefferson coach Josiah Stober said. “We got off really well. What I liked was how the things we’ve been working on: communication, movement, just basic fundamentals; we took from practice and executed on the field. We were really moving the ball well and that set up a lot of breakaways. It wasn’t just one or two girls that did it all but a number of them contributed. We know we have a lot more work to do but this is a nice way to get it going.”
