FILE - JULY 28, 2014: A California judge has issued a preliminary ruling against Donald Sterling that would allow his wife Shelly Sterling to sell the NBA Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft chief Steve Ballmer for $2 billion, according to published reports.

Embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling lost his attempt to block the $2 billion sale of the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. In allowing the deal to go forward, Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas sided Monday with Sterling's estranged wife, Shelly Sterling, who negotiated the record sale after the NBA banned the 80-year-old billionaire for making offensive remarks about blacks. Shelly Sterling sought the probate judge's approval to ink the deal after taking over the family trust that owns the team because doctors found Donald Sterling had signs of Alzheimer's disease and couldn't manage his affairs. The judge said Shelly Sterling had negotiated a good deal and the removal of her husband as a co-trustee was in good faith and not part of a secret plan to seize the team.

The Detroit Lions are postponing contract talks with All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh until after the season. Suh is entering the final season of his contract, and team president Tom Lewand and general manager Martin Mayhew said before practice Monday that negotiations are being tabled. If the two sides can't reach a deal after the season, the Lions could still keep Suh by using their franchise tag on him. ... I think the cap is going to go up next year, and probably the year after that too.'' The Lions selected Suh with the second overall pick in 2010, and he has 27 1/2 sacks in his four pro seasons.

Cabrera homered from both sides of the plate and drove in five runs, R.A. Dickey pitched three-hit ball for seven innings and the Blue Jays won 14-1 on Monday night. ''He didn't know'' his three-run homer in a nine-run sixth inning had cracked the windshield, Cabrera said through a translator.

Derrick Rose says he feels old. ''I was joking with Kyle Korver, I told him 'I'm getting old, man. I've got to stretch, I've got to use rollers and stuff.' He looked at me kind of weird,'' Rose said laughingly. I think I've sacrificed a lot for this moment.'' Rose, the Chicago Bulls star who is coming off two knee injuries that kept him out for much of the last two seasons, said he played roughly nine minutes of the team's scrimmage during a two-hour practice.

Except for about 30 friends and family in the stands, Sacramento native Vance Worley silenced the announced crowd of 41,794 at AT&T Park with the best performance of his career. Worley tossed a four-hitter for his first shutout, and the Pittsburgh Pirates pounded Madison Bumgarner early in a 5-0 win over the struggling Giants on Monday night. ''Just glad I gave them something fun to watch,'' said Worley, who didn't grow up a Giants fan but heard ''a lot of lip'' from friends after coming up in the Phillies organization. Worley sure seems to bring his best against San Francisco.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- - Texas Rangers ace Yu Darvish could only smile after Brett Gardner homered off of him for the third time in a week. Darvish got really emotional after his last pitch, with Gardner and Derek Jeter both on base again for the New York Yankees. After striking out his final batter to get out of that jam in the seventh, Darvish shouted out and pumped his fist several times coming off the mound, and the Rangers held on for a 4-2 victory Monday night. ''I'm just glad they didn't tie the game,'' Darvish said through his translator about his rare emphatic response.
