RENTON, Wash. (AP) - New Seattle Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney says he expects to play in Week 1 even after missing all of training camp and preseason. Clowney says he's still just learning the basics of Seattle's defense, but his offseason conditioning and work on his own during training camp should allow him to play in Seattle's season opener against Cincinnati. Clowney went through his first practice in Seattle on Monday.

CHICAGO (AP) - Kyle Schwarber had a three-run triple to highlight a five-run seventh, and the Chicago Cubs snapped a 24-inning scoreless streak as they rallied for a 5-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners. Anthony Rizzo went 2 for 2 and drove in a run for Chicago, which remained 3½ games behind the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Central. The Cubs were coming off back-to-back shutout losses to the Milwaukee Brewers. Before Sunday, they hadn't been shut out in back-to-back games at Wrigley Field since August 2013.
