LONDON (AP) — Milos Raonic hit 34 aces to beat John Millman of Australia in straight sets and reach the third round at Wimbledon. Raonic reaches that round for a sixth straight year, having lost to eventual champion Roger Federer in last year's quarterfinals. Tenth-seeded Madison Keys of the United States also advanced to the third round today.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Nationals could use a spark before the July 4 fireworks go off in Washington. The Nationals are at risk of falling below .500 for the first time since May 2 as they continue a series against Boston with a game starting before noon. The Red Sox thumped the Nationals 11-4 on Tuesday, giving Washington its fourth straight loss and 16th in 21 games to fall to 42-42.

SEATTLE (AP) — Shohei Ohtani is back from the disabled list, without full use of his electric right arm. The Japanese two-way sensation has been cleared to hit and was in the Angels' lineup as a designated hitter Tuesday night, but he won't be pitching anytime soon due to a Grade 2 sprain of his ulnar collateral ligament suffered more than three weeks ago.

KANSAS CITY (AP) — Trevor Bauer tries to carry over an outstanding June when the Indians play tonight at Kansas City. Bauer had a 2.18 ERA last month, striking out 62 batters in 41 1/3 innings. He gets probably his easiest test of the year against the Royals, who scored a major league-low 58 runs in June — the second-lowest output was Tampa Bay at 87.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Gerrit Cole will pitch tonight on regular rest for the Astros after a slight tweak to their rotation. Lance McCullers Jr. was initially scheduled to start at Texas, but Cole will pitch instead. Justin Verlander will follow Thursday at home against the White Sox and McCullers goes Friday. Manager A.J. Hinch said the switch keeps Cole and Verlander pitching every fifth day, and provides extra rest for McCullers and Charlie Morton.
