MLB PLAYOFFS

UNDATED (AP) -- Brandon Moss has the Oakland Athletics just three innings away from a berth in the American League Division Series.

Moss has homered twice and driven in five runs to help the A's carry a 7-3 lead into the seventh inning of the AL Wild Card game against the Royals in Kansas City.

Moss nicked James Shields for a two-run homer in the first before the Royals eventually rallied to take a 3-2 lead. Yordano Ventura relieved Shields to open the sixth and served up a go-ahead, three-run blast by Moss.

Derek Norris and Coco Crisp added RBI singles later in the sixth. Norris entered the game after starting catcher Geovany Soto (jee-oh-VAH'-nee SOH'-toh) left the game with a thumb injury suffered during a play at the plate in the first inning.

A's starter Jon Lester allowed three runs and five hits through six innings.

The winner of tonight's game faces the Los Angeles Angels in the AL Divisional playoffs.

Speaking of the Angels, outfielder Josh Hamilton says he's feeling better and is ready for the playoffs this week. The former AL MVP missed 21 of the Angels' final 22 regular-season games because of shoulder and other upper-body injuries. Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker also said he's feeling fine after being sidelined the last two weeks because of an oblique strain on his left side.

MLB-TIGERS ROTATION

UNDATED (AP) -- Max Scherzer (SHUR'-zur) will be on the mound when Detroit plays opens its AL Division Series against the Orioles in Baltimore. Scherzer went 18-5 this season with a 3.15 ERA.

Manager Brad Ausmus will go with Justin Verlander in the second game and David Price in Game 3 when the series shifts to Detroit.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter will start Chris Tillman in Thursday's opener. Wei-Yin Chen (way yihn-chehn) stays Game 2 for the Birds, followed by Miguel Gonzalez at Comerica Park.

MLB-YANKEES

NEW YORK (AP) -- Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran has undergone elbow surgery to remove a bone spur and loose pieces that limited his throwing ability for most of the 2014 season. The team says Beltran can start throwing and hitting in about six weeks and can play baseball in approximately 12 weeks.

FOOTBALL-MICHIGAN

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan has announced changes to its injury protocol, admitting a mistake in handling quarterback Shane Morris' suspected concussion Saturday. The school blamed the problem on a "serious lack of communication" and "confusion" among the coaching staff.

Athletic director Dave Brandon says Michigan plans to have a medical professional in the press box or video booth at future football games.

Coach Brady Hoke has been criticized for not immediately sitting Morris for the rest of the game after he took a hard hit in the fourth quarter against Minnesota.

University President Mark S. Schlissel apologized to Morris, his family and teammates.

NFL-RAIDERS

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- The Oakland Raiders have promoted offensive line coach Tony Sparano to interim coach to replace the fired Dennis Allen. Sparano takes over a winless team after four games.

He had a 29-32 record as head coach in Miami from 2008-11.

NFL-COLTS

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Linebacker Robert Mathis has agreed to a new contract with the Indianapolis Colts through the 2016 season. Mathis is the Colts' career leader in sacks and set a single-season franchise record with 19 1/2 sacks last season.

He was suspended for the first four games of this season after violating the NFL's the league's performance-enhancing substance policy, and then sustained a season-ending torn Achilles' tendon.

NFL-PENALTY

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The NFL says Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah (ab-DOO'-luh) should not have been penalized for dropping to his knees in prayer in the end zone after an interception in last night's game. NFL spokesman Michael Signora writes in an email to The Associated Press that "the officiating mechanic in this situation is not to flag a player who goes to the ground as part of religious expression.

The flag thrown in the fourth quarter of Kansas City's 41-14 victory over New England last night touched off a firestorm on social media, with many wondering how it was different from players dropping to one knee in Christian prayer.

PHELPS-DUI

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps has apologized for his arrest early today on a DUI charge in Baltimore.

Officials say he was doing 84 miles per hour in a 45-mile-an-hour zone and that he failed field sobriety tests when officers pulled him over. Phelps says in a statement that he takes full responsibility for his actions.

This is Phelps' second DUI charge in Maryland. He faced the first charge in 2004.

Phelps is the most decorated Olympian with 22 medals.
