Aussie Wins at Indy 500
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) —
Will Power has won the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500, giving the 37-year-old Australian his biggest victory on IndyCar's grandest stage. Power took the lead with four laps to go when Oriol Servia and Jack Harvey had to pit for fuel. Power then held off pole-setter Ed Carpenter over the final few laps for the victory. It gave team owner Roger Penske a 17th win in the Indy 500 and it was Power's second straight victory this season. He won the road-course event at Indy earlier this month. A crash ended Helio Castroneves' bid for a fourth Indianapolis 500 victory. Castroneves was running fourth on a restart with just over 50 laps to go. He spun into the outside wall on Turn 4, then hit the inside wall before coming to rest on pit road. He quickly got out of the car, his anger evident, before marching down pit road. Danica Patrick's racing career ended with a crash in Turn 2 of the Indianapolis 500. Patrick lost control of the car and hit hard in the outside wall, sliding back down across the track and into the inside barrier. Patrick announced months ago that she would retire after the Indy 500, the second half of the "Danica Double." She also raced the Daytona 500.

Bullpen Falters, Pirates Lose to Cardinals
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Harrison Bader's pinch-hit bloop single off Pittsburgh closer Felipe Vazquez keyed a late rally and helped the St. Louis Cardinals surge past the slumping Pirates 6-4 on Sunday. The Cardinals won for just the fourth time in 19 games when trailing after seven innings by pouncing on Pittsburgh's bullpen. St. Louis loaded the bases off Michael Feliz (0-2) and the Pirates brought in Vazquez with one out in the eighth. Bader fought off a 99 mph fastball from Vazquez and dumped it into shallow right field to tie the game. Vazquez walked Yairo Munoz on four pitches to hand St. Louis the lead and the Cardinals added another on a fielder's choice RBI by Carson Kelly. Vazquez has blown three straight save opportunities for the Pirates, who have dropped seven of nine. Sam Tuivailala (1-0) picked up the win with a scoreless seventh. Bud Norris worked a perfect ninth for his 11th save.

Celtics, Cavs Game 7 for Spot in NBA Finals
BOSTON (AP) — If LeBron James is going to get to the NBA Finals for the eighth straight year, the Cavaliers will have to win Sunday night in Boston, where the Celtics have yet to lose this postseason. And Cleveland will have to do it without All-Star forward Kevin Love, who's been diagnosed with a concussion after banging heads with Boston's Jayson Tatum in Game 6. James is having what could be the best postseason of his career. He's averaging 33.9 points and just under nine assists and rebounds, with seven 40-point games, two buzzer beaters, and a sweep of top-seeded Toronto. But he has shown some signs of fatigue, having played in every game this season. Sunday will be his 100th game, and it could be his last in a Cleveland uniform.
