ng off-season knee surgery.

PHOENIX -- Almost exactly a year after a routine pre-training camp physical uncovered a heart condition that threatened his career, and maybe worse, Channing Frye is back with the Phoenix Suns. Suns officials say they decided over the weekend that Frye should re-join the team after he was unanimously cleared by several doctors, including some from Johns Hopkins and Columbia universities. Frye has been inactive, in the literal sense of the word, for a year while treating an enlarged heart apparently caused by a virus. How he got the virus remains a mystery. "Theres no real explanation," he said. "It could be a thousand things -- I drank too much coffee, didnt get enough sleep, too much sleep. Its like my heart had a cold, it had a cold for a year, it went away so now Im better." The 6-foot-11 forward has played seven seasons in the NBA, his last three with the Suns. He grew up in Phoenix and starred at the University of Arizona. At 30, Frye is the oldest player on the Suns overhauled roster. "Theres a lot of weird feelings going on right now," he said as he stood in his No. 8 uniform Monday and spoke to the gathering at Suns media day. "Its been a long year. Its been one of the hardest years Ive ever had to go through just because I couldnt do anything. I couldnt rehab it. I couldnt go out on the court and work on it. It was just something I had to sit and wait and heal." Asked if he had done any basketball activity, Fryes answer was: very little. "Just a little dribbling here, a little shooting there," he said, "just a little dribbling here, a little shooting there, but not enough to break a sweat, put it that way." Now its up Intestate 17 to Flagstaff and six days of workouts at an elevation of 7,000 feet in the Suns training camp at Northern Arizona University. Frye said he will ease into things and knows he is under the watchful eye of the Suns training staff. "When I go out there Im going to go as hard as I can," he said. "Im in a safe environment. If the coaches or trainers see anything and say, Lets take a step back," that is what he will do. He said he had talked with other NBA players who had similar conditions and they all said the same thing. Listen to your doctor and follow his advice. Frye must hardly recognize the Suns from the team he left two seasons ago. New general manager Sean McDonough and new coach Jeff Hornacek have greatly remodeled the roster. Frye, a career 39 per cent 3-point shooter, would be an important component to what Hornacek wants to do, especially with a lineup that has two point guards -- Goran Dragic and newcomer Eric Bledsoe -- on the floor at the same time. During Mondays news conference, Hornacek shouted from the back "Can you still shoot?" "Absolutely," Frye said. McDonough said every roster plan he developed was better with Frye in it. "I think hell play a lot of power forward, maybe even some centre," McDonough said. "The way coach and I would like to play is with the floor spread, and having a power forward that can shoot is a big part of that plan. And as you guys know, Channing is one of the better if not the best shooting big man in the league." Frye did not downplay the enormity of his condition or what might have happened had it not been detected when it was. "I think it was very serious," he said. "As professional athletes, we push ourselves every day. Theres really no medium to exercise, theres zero and theres a hundred. Every doctor I went to was like, Thank God we caught it when we did." But he said he never felt his basketball career was over. "When things didnt look good, I just felt like I wasnt done yet," he said, "and I was determined to approach this like I approach everything else, ever since I was in high school. I wasnt always the best, I wasnt always the strongest or the tallest or the fastest. I just wanted to play ball, thats what Im supposed to do and I never felt like I was done." Frye is married with two small children and he said they were always his first consideration. "If at any point the doctors had said, Hey, look, this is not going to work out, I would have just stopped, he said, "because they (his family) come before this, come before my career." Now comes the difficult chore of becoming an NBA player again. "Yeah, its difficult, but thats the challenge. Thats exciting to me," Frye said. "After not challenging myself for a year, Ive got a lot of challenge energy stored up." Eddie Goldman Bears Jersey . He then tried the other side of the ice, and that worked out quite well for him and the Chicago Blackhawks. Bickell had a goal and two assists, and the Blackhawks beat the Minnesota Wild 4-1 on Sunday to take a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference semifinals.

Even for a team such as this, finishing off another title sweep is a feel-good accomplishment.

Ryan Rayburn and Lonnie Chisenhall homered for the Indians, whose winning streak ties a season high. Three of Clevelands last four games have gone extra innings, including a 13-inning win over Detroit on Wednesday night. The Indians became the first team since the 2010 Angels to play two straight games of at least 13 innings, and it was the first time since 2003 that Cleveland played two consecutive 13-inning games. After two hits and a walk loaded the bases in the 13th, Santana came to plate against Troy Patton (0-1) with a .148 batting average. He pulled a sharp grounder inside the third-base line, only his third hit in 32 at-bats with two outs and runners on. Josh Outman (4-0) pitched two scoreless innings and Scott Atchison got three outs for his first save, despite giving up a solo home run to Nick Markakis. Ryan Flaherty also homered for Baltimore and Adam Jones had three hits. Orioles third baseman Manny Machado left after 11 innings with right groin stiffness. He didnt begin play this season until May 1 after undergoing off-season knee surgery. Baltimore used a five-run sixth inning to erase a 3-0 deficit, and after the Indians pulled even in the seventh the Orioles scored the go-ahead run in the bottom half without benefit of a hit. Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera fumbled Machados sharp grounder and Jones followed with a bouncer to third. Santana threw wildly to second base trying to start a double play, leaving runners on second and third with one out. After Mark Lowe issued an intentional walk to Chris Davis, Nelson Cruz hit a sacrifice fly to make it 6-5. Chisenhall answered in the eighth with a pinch-hit homer off Darren ODay to make it 6-all. It was Chisenhalls seccond home run of the season, both in the last two games.dddddddddddd Much earlier, Indians starter Justin Masterson induced three double plays over the first five innings while being pressed into action on three days rest. In the Baltimore sixth, after Steve Clevenger and J.J. Hardy delivered two-out RBI singles, Flaherty hit a 2-1 pitch over the 25-foot scoreboard in right field to make it 5-3. The advantage vanished in the seventh. With one out, Flaherty fumbled a potential double-play grounder to second base, getting an out at first that resulted in an RBI for David Murphy. Mike Aviles then chased Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen with a game-tying single. Baltimore regained the lead in the bottom half, but it would not last in this back-and-forth duel. Raburn put the Indians up 1-0 with a solo shot in the second inning, his first home run in 51 at-bats this season. Cleveland made it 3-0 in the third when Michael Brantley tripled in a run and scored on Chens first wild pitch of the year. NOTES: Baltimore has 12 or more hits in four straight games for the first time since April 2007. ... The Indians placed starter Zach McAllister (lower back strain) on the 15-day DL and recalled rookie T.J. House from Triple-A Columbus. House will make his first major league start Friday night against the Orioles, who will send Bud Norris to the mound. ... Cleveland also purchased Lowes contract from Columbus and optioned LHP Kyle Crockett to the same club. ... Baltimore placed RHP Tommy Hunter (groin strain) on the 15-day DL and recalled RHP Preston Guilmet. ... Chris Davis will likely be out Sunday and Monday on paternity leave while doctors induce labour on the first basemans wife, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. ... Jones has reached safely in 16 straight games. ... Baltimores Zach Britton blanked Cleveland in the 9th and 10th innings, his 10th consecutive scoreless outing.
