DENVER (AP) - Colorado Rockies slugger Nolan Arenado left Thursday's game against the Atlanta Braves with an apparent injury to his left hand. The All-Star third baseman held his hand in pain after trying to field a sharp grounder from Lane Adams in the seventh inning. He leads the majors with 103 RBIs.

DENVER (AP) - Ender Inciarte hit two of Atlanta's four homers and the Braves beat the Colorado Rockies 10-4 Thursday. Freddie Freeman and Tyler Flowers also homered, and Lucas Sims got his first win in the majors for the Braves, who managed a four-game split at Coors Field thanks to four solo shots off Colorado starter Jeff Hoffman.

SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) -- Ji-Man Choi hit a two-run double in the fifth inning, leading the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders to a 5-4 win over the Gwinnett Braves Thursday. Gwinnett starter Aaron Blair took the loss in the International League game after giving up five runs and nine hits over five innings.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Chris Long, the Philadelphia defensive end who grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia put his arm around teammate Malcolm Jenkins as a show of unity during the national anthem before the Eagles' exhibition game Thursday night against Buffalo. Jenkins stood with his right fist raised in the air as he's done since last season. Long was to his right with his left arm on Jenkins' shoulder. Long, who starred in Charlottesville in high school at St. Anne's-Belfield and went to the University of Virginia, was critical of white nationalists and the violence in his hometown last week.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Deon Simon dealt with a severe knee injury and academic issues as a high school senior which left his future on and off the field uncertain. The 27-year-old defensive tackle from Atlanta is now a promising backup on the New York Jets' defense and a college graduate who has aspirations of becoming a U.S. Marshal.
