CLEVELAND — LeBron James will play his first preseason game with the Cavaliers at home before he faces his former team, the Miami Heat, in Brazil.

The Cavs will open their exhibition season Oct. 5 against Maccabi Tel Aviv, the Israeli club formerly led by new Cleveland coach David Blatt. It will be James' first game with the Cavs since re-signing with them last month as a free agent.

On Oct. 12, James and the Cavs will play the Heat in Rio De Janiero. James won two NBA titles and went to the NBA Finals four straight seasons with the Heat.

The Cavs will also play in Cincinnati on Oct. 15 against Indiana and against Chicago in Columbus on Oct. 20 on Ohio State's campus.

CINCINNATI — Nathan Eovaldi gave his second straight shutdown performance, holding Cincinnati to five hits over eight shutout innings, and Giancarlo Stanton hit his NL-leading 28th homer on Friday night, powering the Miami Marlins to a 2-1 victory.

The Reds fell to 8-13 since the All-Star break, a slide that has them stranded in fourth place in the NL Central.

Eovaldi (6-6) got his first victory since June 23, ending a streak of three losses and four no-decisions. He was coming off what was his best performance of the second half of the season — seven innings of 1-run ball in a 2-1 win over the Reds last Saturday. He didn't get the decision in that one.

NEW YORK — Carlos Beltran hit a grand slam and drove in five runs as the New York Yankees broke out to support improbable fill-in starter Esmil Rogers and beat the sloppy Cleveland Indians 10-6 on Friday night for their sixth win in seven games.

Derek Jeter tied Honus Wagner with his 3,430th hit in a 5-run first inning against Trevor Bauer (4-7) and Beltran's 11th career slam highlighted a 5-run sixth. The Indians, who have the majors' worst fielding percentage, prolonged both innings with errors in their fourth straight loss overall and seventh in a row in the Bronx.

The Yankees walked seven times in moving seven games above .500 (61-54) for the first time this season.

Might as well call it Mission: Impossible.

Starting in mid-October, a panel of 13 football experts will begin meeting once a week to determine the four teams who will compete for the national championship in the very first College Football Playoff. Their goal is to choose the four best teams in the nation at the end of the regular season.

But how does someone answer a question for which there will almost always will be more-than-one correct answer?
