MIAMI — After struggling throughout his career against the Miami Marlins, Matt Latos final beat his hometown team.

Latos (3-3), who hails from nearby Coconut Creek, beat the Marlins for the first time in eight career starts while allowing one run in seven innings to help the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-2 win Friday night.

"I battled," Latos said. "I had to bear down when I needed to. I made some good pitches and the offense picked me up today. A good game all around."

BEREA — As his teammates sweated through another training camp practice, Josh Gordon was in a New York office building where his career — and Cleveland's season — were in jeopardy.

Gordon met Friday with NFL officials to appeal a possible indefinite suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Gordon's attorney, Maurice Suh, and other members of his legal team were expected to argue that Gordon tested positive for marijuana because of second-hand smoke, a defense they planned to augment with witnesses.

No decision on Gordon is expected for several days and the Browns are keeping their fingers crossed the outcome will be favorable.

CANTON — Michael Strahan is pleased to know he is scheduled to go last during the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies.

That means the former New York Giants star pass-rusher won't be the first to break down in tears once the 2014 7-member class is inducted today.

"I am not going to be the first one to crack," Strahan pronounced with a familiar gap-toothed grin Friday. "But it'll be interesting. I just told the guys, 'It's OK. If you're going to cry, this is the opportunity to cry where nobody can say anything to you'."

LEXINGTON — If the IndyCar Series is going to make it 3-for-3 when it comes to caution-free races at Mid-Ohio, the drivers will need to clean it up before Sunday's Honda Indy 200.

Friday's afternoon practice was stopped twice for drivers going off course, causing a disjointed session.

"The first practice was fine," 4-time Mid-Ohio winner Scott Dixon said. "The second practice was pretty much a waste of time with all the reds (flags). We only got one or two laps at speed. It was pretty slippery out there with all the dirt and stuff. Hopefully, tomorrow goes a little bit smoother."
