SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Vance Worley tossed a four-hitter for his first career shutout, and the Pittsburgh Pirates pounded Madison Bumgarner early in a 5-0 win over the struggling San Francisco Giants last night. Worley struck out three and walked one. His only other complete game came in a 7-2 win over the Giants in 2011 in Philadelphia.

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Mets crushed the Philadelphia Phillies 7-1 last night. Travis d'Arnaud went 3 for 4 with a three-run homer, and Bartolo Colon made his second straight strong start. D'Arnaud hit one of three doubles for the Mets as they took a 4-0 lead in the first. Then, the catcher's seventh home run of the season broke the game open in the fifth.

LATROBE, Pa. (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers are going shopping. General manager Kevin Colbert says the team hopes to use some of its remaining room under the salary cap to lock down a potential free agent before the regular season begins. The Steelers have four starters entering the final year of their deals, including outside linebacker Jason Worilds and cornerback Cortez Allen.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Fists are flying at the Philadelphia Eagles training camp. For the second straight day, a fight broke out between an offensive and defensive player. Cornerback Bradley Fletcher took on wide receiver Jeremy Maclin yesterday. Linebacker Trent Cole got into it with All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy a day earlier.

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - The Cleveland Browns say offensive guard Jason Pinkston has not been medically cleared to practice. Pinkston started 16 games as a rookie in 2011. The next year he was sidelined with blood clots in his lungs, threatening his career. The fifth-round draft pick from Pittsburgh played only three games last season because of an ankle injury.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Five Pennsylvania congressmen are asking college sports' governing body to cancel penalties against Penn State imposed as a result of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal. The five have released a letter that they sent to the president of the NCAA.
