NFL-BRADY LAWSUIT

NEW YORK (AP) -- Tom Brady's lawsuit against the NFL in which he wants his four-game suspension overturned will be heard in New York instead of Minnesota. Brady and the players' union filed their suit Wednesday in Minnesota. But the NFL already had filed papers Tuesday in New York, moments after announcing that Commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') upheld the suspension for Brady's involvement in the use of underinflated footballs in the AFC championship game.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Kyle ordered the transfer.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- As a new day of play begins in Major League Baseball, the Nationals top the Mets by two games in the National League East. That could change this afternoon as each team has a game. The Nationals are in Miami for a matinee game while the Mets are home to the Padres.

The two teams vying for supremacy of the American League West meet once again tonight as Houston entertains the Angels. The Astros have won the first two games of the three-game set to regain first place, by a game over the Angels. In tonight's game recently acquired lefty Scott Kazmir is pitching for the Astros against Matt Shoemaker.

Kansas City and Toronto open up a four-game series tonight north of the border. The Royals are firmly in first place in the American League Central while the Blue Jays are fighting with Baltimore for second place in the AL East as well as a wild card berth. The Royals are a league-best 61-39 while the Jays are playing .500 ball at 51-51.

The rest of the schedule has the Orioles hosting Detroit, Atlanta at Philadelphia, the White Sox in Boston, the Reds home to the Pirates, Colorado at St. Louis, the Cubs in Milwaukee, the Rangers entertaining the Yankees, Seattle at Minnesota and Oakland home to Cleveland.

MLB-TRADES

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A deal between the Phillies and Rangers involving Cole Hamels appears imminent. Two people familiar with the deal say the Phillies have agreed to trade the ace left-hander to the Rangers for a package of prospects. Both people spoke to The Associated Press late Wednesday night on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been finalized.

Hamels has a limited no-trade clause but does not have to approve a deal to the Rangers.

CLEVELAND (AP) -- A person familiar with the trade says the Indians have dealt outfielder Brandon Moss to the St. Louis Cardinals. In return, Cleveland will receive minor league pitcher Rob Kaminsky. The person spoke Thursday to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced.

The Cardinals are in desperate need of a power hitter and outfielder. They haven't scored in 22 consecutive innings and Matt Holliday re-injured his right quadriceps Wednesday. It's the same injury that caused the seven-time All-Star to miss 31 games. Moss signed as a free agent during the offseason and has 15 homers and 50 RBIs in 94 games.

NFL-PATRIOTS

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick (BEHL'-ih-chik) had nothing new to tell reporters the day after the opening of training camp. When asked about the possibility of starting the season without quarterback Tom Brady as he faces a four-game suspension, Belichick continued to say he doesn't worry about things he has no control over.

Belichick says what's in the past doesn't concern him. And anything in the future beyond the day's practice isn't in his control, either.

WOMEN'S BRITISH OPEN

TURNBERRY, Scotland (AP) -- The women's British Open is being contested this week at Turnberry in Scotland. The early first-round clubhouse lead is held by South Korea's Hyo Joo Kim after an opening round 7-under 65. Lydia Ko is in second at minus-6.

This is the fourth of the LPGA Tour's five major championships. Brittany Lincicome (LIHN'-sih-kohm) won the ANA Inspiration in April, Inbee Park took the Women's PGA Championship in June and Gee Chun won the U.S. Women's Open this month.

Last year's winner, Mo Martin, is 2-under after the opening round.
