CINCINNATI (AP) - Justin Upton extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a bases-loaded single during Atlanta's decisive third inning, and the Braves extended their offensive resurgence with an 8-0 victory over the fading Cincinnati Reds on Thursday night. Atlanta put it away early, sending 11 batters to the plate in the third for five runs.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville's main defensive concern was finding playmakers to replace seven starters, particularly all-conference safeties Hakeem Smith and Calvin Pryor. The Cardinals believe they have solved the problem. Senior Terell Floyd moved over from cornerback while junior college transfer James Sample and underclassmen are developing there and on the edges.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Alabama and LSU both placed 11 players on the coaches' preseason All-Southeastern Conference teams. The SEC teams released on Thursday had representatives from all 14 teams and half of them had seven or more selections.

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Brad Keselowski earned his first NASCAR Truck Series win Thursday. Keselowski passed defending champion Kyle Busch with 75 laps to go and held off Busch's teammate Darrell Wallace Jr. in the UNOH 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
