UNDATED (AP) -- There are seven day games being played in Major League Baseball today.

In Washington, Lance Lynn of the visiting Cardinals is going for his fourth win of the season against no defeats. In Cleveland, Mark Buehrle (BUR'-lee) is attempting to get his fourth win against no losses as the Blue Jays square off with the Indians. His earned run average before the start of the game was just 0.86. And Scott Kazmir of the A's is looking for his third win as Oakland entertains Houston.

The other day games feature the Angels in Detroit, Baltimore at Boston, the Royals at home to the Twins and Cincinnati in Chicago to face the Cubs.

The evening portion of the schedule has the Pirates hosting the Brewers, Seattle at Miami, the Yankees at Tampa, New York's other team, the Mets, home to the Braves, the White Sox at Texas, Colorado at home to the Phillies, Arizona playing in L.A. against the Dodgers and the Padres at home to the Giants.

NBA PLAYOFFS

UNDATED (AP) -- The NBA's second season, the playoffs, gets going today with four games. Two of the contests are taking place this afternoon as the Raptors entertain the Nets in a battle of Atlantic Division rivals and the Clippers host the Warriors in a game of Pacific Division foes.

On tap this evening, the two games feature the Hawks playing the Pacers, the top seed in the East, in Indianapolis while Oklahoma City is home to Memphis in a Western Conference matchup.

These are all best-of-seven series.

NHL PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Today's NHL playoff schedule consists of one day game and two at night. In the afternoon contest, the St. Louis Blues are looking to take a 2-0 lead over defending league champion Chicago. The Blues won the opener 4-3 in triple-overtime on Thursday night.

Tonight, it's Game 2 for the Penguins and Blue Jackets. Home-standing Pittsburgh won the opening game with a 4-3 decision over Columbus. And Colorado is home to Minnesota in the second game of that seven-game affair. The Avalanche took the first game 5-4 in overtime.

PGA-RBC HERITAGE

HILTON HEAD, S.C. (AP) -- Jim Furyk (FYOOR'-ihk) finished off a second-round 66 today to join K.J. Choi and Ben Martin in a tie for the lead halfway through the rain-delayed RBC Heritage. Furyk, the 2010 champion, was among 65 golfers who hadn't finished Friday before play was halted due to heavy rains.

Those missing the 4-over cut included Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson, five-time champion Davis Love III and CBS Sports analyst Nick Faldo, playing here for the first time since 2006.

CHAMPIONS TOUR

DULUTH, Ga. (AP) -- Miguel Angel Jimenez (AHN'-hehl hee-MEHN'-ehz) is the leader heading into second-round play at the Greater Gwinnett Championship in Georgia. Jimenez fired a 7-under-65 in the first round of his debut on the Champions Tour. He entered today's play with a three shot lead over defending champ Bernhard Langer, Kenny Perry and Steve Pate.
