The NFL says it found no evidence any team asked LSU running back Derrius Guice inappropriate questions during interviews at the scouting combine.

Last month Bradley Chubb Jersey Elite , Guice, projected as a first-round selection, told SiriusXM Satellite Radio that one team asked if he was gay and another club asked if his mother "sells herself."

League spokesman Brian McCarthy says Wednesday that "the league conducted a thorough investigation which included a formal review and report from every club that interviewed Mr. Guice during the combine, as well as discussions with Mr. Guice, his agent and others. The investigation did not confirm that any club made the reported inquiries."

McCarthy added that the league "used this opportunity to reaffirm our workplace standards and emphasize the importance of fully complying with all requirements of federal and state law. The NFL and each of its member clubs remain fully committed to fair and non-discriminatory employment practices."

Before each combine, where all 32 teams interview prospects, the league sends guidance to the clubs about specific language to be avoided in questioning. Among the regulations is a ban on such questions as whether the player likes men or women; is gay or straight; has any children or dependents and who has primary caretaking responsibilities; and whether or not he married his child's mother.

Two years ago Taven Bryan Jersey Jaguars , an Atlanta Falcons assistant coach asked an inappropriate question to Ohio State's Eli Apple, who eventually was drafted by the New York Giants. Falcons coach Dan Quinn apologized for the assistant's question.

— It was a throwback night for Matt Harvey. At least, that’s how it looked to Giants manager Bruce Bochy.

Harvey took a no-hit try into the sixth inning, Jose Peraza and Dilson Herrera backed him with home runs and the Cincinnati Reds dominated Madison Bumgarner and San Francisco 7-1 on Saturday night.

“He had good stuff,” Bochy said. “He really did throw well. He’s been throwing well, but he reminded me of when he was really throwing well. He was throwing 95. He mixed it up and hit his spots.”

The former Mets ace followed up a seven-inning, five-hit Roquan Smith Jersey Elite , two-run start the previous Saturday against Arizona.

“After a successful outing last time, it is big to have another,” Harvey said. “I’m getting there. Health is the biggest thing. It is hard to stay sharp when you’re used to going every sixth day. You feel a little out of whack. The guys are calling me the Saturday starter, like in college.”

Scooter Gennett had three hits for the second straight night and scored three runs, Peraza had two hits and scored twice and Brandon Dixon drove in two runs with a bases-loaded double. Cincinnati sent the Giants to their third straight loss after winning three in a row. San Francisco has lost nine of its last 14 games.

Harvey (6-7) didn’t give up a hit until there were two outs in the sixth, when Joe Panik beat out a grounder that shortstop Peraza backhanded deep in the hole.

Harvey threw 6 1/3 shutout innings, allowing four hits and a walk with five strikeouts. He drew a standing ovation as he walked to the dugout Josh Jackson Jersey Elite , and improved to 6-5 in 17 starts for the Reds since being acquired from the Mets for catcher Devin Mesoraco on May 8.

Bumgarner (4-5) turned in the worst of his 14 starts this season, setting season highs by allowing six runs and eight hits in six innings.

“I wouldn’t say today was the best that I’ve felt this year, but I felt pretty good,” Bumgarner said. “It’s a funny game. That’s how it works out sometimes. It was weird. I was making my pitches, and they were getting hits.”

Peraza led off a three-run fourth with a line shot into the left field seats. Dixon capped the inning with a broken-bat blooper down the right field line.

“That wasn’t my favorite part of the game,” Bumgarner said. “That’s the way it goes sometimes. Sometimes, they hit it right at guys.”

The Reds added two runs in the fifth on Phillip Ervin’s bases-loaded sacrifice fly. Peraza scored from third and Gennett came around on center fielder Stephen Duggar’s throwing error. Herrera led off the sixth with his third homer of the season.

The Giants scored their only run when the Reds couldn’t complete a double play on Evan Longoria’s bases-loaded grounder with one out in the eighth.

DROUGHT

The Giants have scored three or fewer runs in 10 of the last 14 games and have hit just two home runs in their last 93 innings.

FINALLY

Harvey’s win was his first over San Francisco in five career starts. The Giants hit a combined .289 against him in his first four appearances.

ALL OR NOTHING

Of Herrera’s six hits this season New York Giants Jerseys Womens , three have been home runs.

UP NEXT

Giants: LHP Andrew Suarez (4-8) allowed five runs in six innings of a 6-3 Reds win on May 16 in San Francisco.

Reds: After allowing one home run in five July starts, RHP Luis Castillo (6-10) has been roughed up for three in his two August outings.
