Football: Blake 50, Leto 0

TAMPA — Leto couldn't stop an opponent's run game for the second straight week, falling 50-0 to host Blake.

After a safety to start the game, the Yellow Jackets returned the ball all the way to the Leto 5, with running back Joshua Bell taking it in for a touchdown.

The Yellow Jackets' slash-and-dash ground game split apart Leto's defense. Blake finished with 194 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Bell did most of the damage, with two touchdowns and 89 yards.

Blake held Leto to 141 yards of total offense.

Leto did manage to catch Blake off guard on a few plays. The Falcons had a 43-yard kickoff return to gain good field position, but couldn't get onto the scoreboard. And they inched closer to the red zone on a 26-yard run only to fumble the ball away on Blake's 1.

    The Heater

    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.
  3. Tom Jones' Two Cents: ABC's Indy 500 coverage is stellar again

    TV and Radio

    Times columnist Tom Jones looks back at the best and worst from a weekend of televised sports.

    Best coverage

    Takuma Sato left, celebrates after winning the Indianapolis 500 as Helio Castroneves is a little late passing him. ABC’s coverage of the race is stellar throughout, with plenty of extras but no fake drama.

    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.
  5. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Sunday's Rays-Twins game

    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.
