Cleveland Indians rookie Cody Anderson took a bid for a perfect game into the seventh inning in his second major league start, and the struggling Indians snapped a three-game losing streak with a 7-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.  Anderson didn't allow a base runner until Grady Sizemore homered against his old team on a 1-2 pitch with one out in the seventh. 

The Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets will get the first opportunities to meet with LaMarcus Aldridge shortly after the free-agency period officially begins at midnight tonight in Los Angeles.  Aldridge also will meet with the San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns, and Toronto Raptors tomorrow and with the New York Knicks on Thursday, league sources told ESPN.com.  According to one source, the chance of Aldridge staying with the Portland Trail Blazers is "very unlikely." 

Lincoln native Jack Sock and Vasek Pospisil made a winning return to Wimbledon, opening their title defense with a 5-7, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (3), 6-1 win against Sam Groth and Sergiy Stakhovsky yesterday.  The Lincoln Journal Star reports that the third-seeded duo converted three of their 15 break point chances, including two of three in the fourth set.  Sock and Pospisil made their doubles debut last year at Wimbledon, completing a fairy tale run with a five-set win against Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan.  Sock, who is seeded 31st in the singles bracket, will open play against Groth today. 

Dara Torres has no regrets about the way her swimming career ended.  She was back in Omaha yesterday to promote the 2016 United States Olympic Swim Trials, which will be held at the CenturyLink Center for the third straight time.  The five-time Olympian ended her competitive career in Omaha in the 2012 trials.  At age 45 she finished fourth in the 50-meter freestyle and was nine-hundredths of a second away from making the U.S. team.  Torres lives in Boston and is spokeswoman for USA Swimming's "SwimToday" program, which encourages youngsters to join swim teams and touts the body-and-mind benefits of the sport.  She also trains for fun with the Cambridge Masters Swim Club at Harvard.

News Briefs:

A report investigating a deadly riot at a Nebraska prison says too many inmates were outside their cells at the time of the incident. The report says multiple inmates at Tecumseh State Correctional Institution were released simultaneously for medication distribution. That led to a large gathering in the prison courtyard. There were 57 staff members at the facility, the minimum allowed for monitoring the 1,024 inmates. 

Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson has joined with attorneys general from 12 other states in filing a lawsuit against the EPA and Corps of Engineers over the Waters of the U.S. rule. The case was filed in the United States District Court for the District of North Dakota. The rule was published Monday in the Federal Register, and will become law on August 28th. 

A group of doctors wants to open a second hospital in Grand Island and says that it'll take at least two years to build and have it operational. Dr. Molly Johnson says that CHI Health isn't giving enough consideration to physicians' concerns and local needs. Because CHI Health St. Francis is part of a larger network, she says some physicians fear that part of its financial success might be used to support another hospital in the network. 

A man convicted in the death of a bald eagle in northeast Nebraska has been sentenced to probation. Twenty-four-year-old Antonio Bertucci of Macy received one year of supervised release Monday for his conviction of aiding and abetting the unlawful killing of a bald eagle. Prosecutors say Bertucci was the driver of a car in February 2014 that was involved in the shooting death of the eagle. 

As Norfolk's American Legion Club prepares to lock its doors forever today, members of American Legion Post 16 are planning to remain active and carry on their community projects. Legion Senior Vice Commander Denny Larson says among the Legion's possessions are 385 flags that were used at the burials of veterans. He says family members may claim those flags by calling him, 402-640-7008. Larson says the Legion Post will provide respectful storage for any flags that are not claimed until a new place can be found to display them. 

No live poultry will be displayed at area county fairs because of avian flu, but that doesn't mean youth won't be able to display what they have learned through their poultry projects. Brad Bennett is the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Educator for the Youth Livestock Program. He says some fairs will use toy chickens for showmanship competition, and allow students to show what they have learned through poster or binder projects. 

Many events are already planned for next year's 150th anniversary celebration of the founding of Norfolk, but more events are needed. Sheryl Schmeckpeper with the Norfolk 150 steering committee says the celebration will kick off in one year - on June 29th, 2016. Opening ceremonies will be held at the Elkhorn Valley Museum, with Music in the Park, a concert at Divots, Big-Bang-Boom and the annual July 4th parade all part of the celebration. Suggestions for more activities can be found online at Norfolkne150.com. Anyone with questions or suggestions may call Schmeckpeper at 402-371-1020.
