The Browns also ended a run of seven straight losses to their intrastate rival after trading trash talk on the field beforehand.“We’re tired of being disrespected,” safety Jabrill Peppers said. “Before the game, they said, ‘Why are you talking? You play for the Browns.’ What does that even mean?”Just as unabashed Browns safety Damarious Randall had predicted, it wasn’t even close.The Browns surged ahead 28-0 as former head coach Hue Jackson watched helplessly from the opposite sideline. Jacks field, who didn’t say much to Jackson when they met on the field after the game.By that point, words weren’t really necessary.Randall had predicted during the week that if Bengals receiver A.J. Green didn’t play, the Browns would dominate. Green was out again with a toe injury, and Randall had a hand in making his prediction hold up.He picked off Dalton in the second quarter, ran out of bounds and . He was coming off his best game, a three-TD performance during a 28-16 win over Atlanta that sent Cleveland into its bye week.Mayfield finished 19 of 26 for 258 yards as the Browns essentially ran out the clock in the second half, when he threw only four passes.

But that’s the way we want it here in Cleveland.”Dalton hurt the thumb on his passing hand while trying to recover a fumble in the third quarter and didn’t return. He was still being evaluated after the game. The Browns turned the fumble recovery into Mayfield’s fourth TD pass for a 35-7 lead.

The New York Yankees recalled outfielder Clint Frazier from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre before Saturday’s game against Toronto.

Frazier is batting .350 with no homers and one RBI in eight games with the Yankees this season.

To make room on the roster, the Yankees designated right-hander David Hale for assignment. Hale pitched 5 2-3 innings in relief of struggling right-hander Sonny Gray in Friday’s 6-2 loss to the Blue Jays.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone also says Triple-A right-hander Luis Cessa will likely be called up to start the second game of Monday’s doubleheader at Baltimore. Cessa is 4-8 with a 4.53 ERA in 32 career games with New York.

Right-hander Jonathan Loaisiga was a candidate to start against the Orioles but has been ruled out because of a sore shoulder. Boone says Loaisiga had an MRI Friday and will visit New York’s team doctor on Monday.
