Ravens 16, Chargers 13, overtime

Ravens convert on fourth and 29, win

SAN DIEGO — The Chargers seemingly had their first win against a team with a winning record secured, leading by three and defending a fourth-and-29 play from the Ravens 37.

But Baltimore converted on a catch-and-run by running back Ray Rice, forced overtime, then won on Justin Tucker's 38-yard field goal with 1:07 left. The Ravens have won four straight and eight of nine. On the fourth-down play, Joe Flacco threw a short pass to Rice, who weaved through the defense, found a hole in the middle of the field and got to the San Diego 33 with 1:37 left After a review, the ball was moved to the 34, still a first down and leading to a tying field goal.

"Check down, Hey Diddle Diddle, Ray Rice up the middle," Rice said of the play. "It was just total will."

"It upsets the stomach when things like that happen, but they happen," said Chargers defensive end Corey Liuget. "You have to give a guy credit when he makes an awesome play like that.''

    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.

    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.

    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.
