Reds Beat Bucs In Comeback
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Chris Heisey hit two home runs, including a tiebreaking shot in the ninth inning, and Johnny Cueto overcame an early jolt to earn his 16th win as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 Sunday. Heisey's solo drive with one out in the ninth off Jared Hughes (6-5) helped the Reds avoid getting swept at PNC Park. Josh Harrison homered on the first pitch from Cueto and Jordy Mercer went yard in the second for a 2-0 lead. Cueto wound up pitching eight innings and tied Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw for the major league lead in victories. Aroldis Chapman struck two in a perfect ninth for his 29th save.

Wild Things Sweep Gateway
The Washington Wild Things closed out a three-game sweep of the Gateway Grizzlies on Sunday night with a 6-0 shutout from GCS Ballpark. Zac Fuesser (9-2) tossed six scoreless innings for the victory and struck out seven along the way. Al Yevoli followed with three scoreless innings of relief for his first save of the year. Offensively, Carter Bell slugged a solo homer in the second inning and Scott Kalamar added an RBI single in the sixth. Gateway’s pitching and defense unraveled in the ninth with four walks and error, helping Washington to four runs to ice the ballgame. The Wild Things head home with four games remaining in the regular season, 1.5 back of first place Southern Illinois in the East Division. Gateway was eliminated from playoff contention with the loss.

Kahne Clinches Chase Spot With Win
HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) - Kasey Kahne had a better night than Tony Stewart at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Kahne earned his first Sprint Cup win of the season, grabbing the lead on a restart with 23 laps remaining before holding off Matt Kenseth in a two-lap shootout. Both Kahne and Kenseth earned spots in the Chase for the Championship. Denny Hamlin was third, followed by Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards and Danica Patrick. Stewart was unable to finish his first race in three weeks. He started 12th and got as high as fourth before slamming the wall on laps 122 and 172, shredding the right side of his car. It was Stewart's first competition since his sprint car struck and killed a fellow driver.

Final Round Set
NORTON, Mass. (AP) - Russell Henley fired a 6-under-par 65 to take the third-round lead at the PGA's Deutsche Bank Championship near Boston. Henley carded five birdies during a seven-hole stretch and moved to 12-under for the tournament. Billy Horschel is one stroke back and one ahead of Rory McIlroy, Chris Kirk and Jason Day. Horschel birdied the last three holes of his third round.

U.S. Basketball Scores Second Win

BILBAO, Spain (AP) - The U.S. men's basketball team is unbeaten after two games of the World Cup in Spain. The Americans trailed 40-35 at halftime before posting a 98-77 win against Turkey, the team they beat in the final four years ago. The U.S was led by Kenneth Faried's 22 points as well as 19 in the second half from Anthony Davis.
