After dropping the opening game of the double-elimination tournament to West Pasco, the Angels Division (ages 9-10) squad came back with consecutive wins over Wesley Chapel (7-2) and Hernando-Brooksville (8-1).

Those victories were powered by the pitching of Sarah Brown and Ashley Logan. Brown tossed a one-hitter in the win over Wesley Chapel, while Logan threw a two-hit complete game against Hernando-Brooksville.

Manager Glenn Primavera likes his team's chances of reaching the district championship final in a rematch with West Pasco. Spring Hill's biggest asset is its defense at the infield corner positions with Celine Kordon at third base and Abbey Primavera at first.

Manager Primavera credits much of his team's success to the coaching staff of Melissa Varela and Rich Woodall.

    MINNEAPOLIS — Before the Rays eventually won Sunday's 6½-hour, 15-inning marathon against the Twins 8-6, they did plenty to lose it. And we need to get that out of the way first.

    The Rays’ Evan Longoria enjoys a laugh after scoring, barely, to tie it in the ninth on Steven Souza Jr.’s two-out single.

    Auto racing

    INDIANAPOLIS — Takuma Sato, a journeyman driver, became the first Japanese winner of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday when he held off three-time champion Helio Castroneves in a 230-mph wheel-rubbing duel to the finish.

    Scott Dixon’s car goes over the top of Jay Howard, soaring so high that Helio Castroneves drove under it while it was airborne. Stunningly, there were no serious injuries.

    The Rays won because they got two innings of good relief from each of the two pitchers who contributed to them losing Saturday's game, Danny Farquhar (who again struck out Miguel Sano) and Tommy Hunter, who both posted zeroes.
