Drew Stubbs capped Colorado’s five-run ninth inning with a three-run homer, sending the Rockies to a 10-9 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday. The Reds carried a 9-5 lead into the ninth, but All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman walked four straight batters before he was replaced by J.J. Hoover. Pinch-hitter Wilson Rosario then hit a sacrifice fly to trim Cincinnati’s lead to two. After Charlie Blackmon flied out, Stubbs drove a 1-0 pitch from Hoover into the seats in left for his 12th homer. Jay Bruce went 3-for-5 at the plate for Cincinnati with 3 RBI. The Reds will be back in action tonight as they begin a 3-game set with the St. Louis Cardinals. Tonight’s game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame set for 7:45 and the first pitch at 8:15.

Jeff Gordon raced to his third NASCAR Sprint Cup victory of the year, holding off Kevin Harvick on Sunday for his first win at Michigan International Speedway since 2001. Gordon broke the track qualifying record Friday when he took the pole, and then followed that up with his third Cup victory at MIS. After a series of cautions, Gordon came off the final restart well and led with 16 laps remaining. He fought off a challenge from Joey Logano and maintained a comfortable margin over Harvick, winning by 1.4 seconds. Harvick was second, followed by Logano, Paul Menard and Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Andy Dalton completed all eight of his passes and led the Bengals to a pair of touchdowns and a field goal during three impressive series Saturday night before the New York Jets’ reserves rallied for a 25-17 preseason victory. It was Dalton’s first game at Paul Brown Stadium since his turnover-filled 27-10 loss to San Diego in the opening round of the playoffs. Also, his first home game since he signed a six-year contract extension. He went 8 for 8 for 144 yards, one touchdown and a perfect passer rating of 158.3
Pitcher Mo’Ne Davis, one of two girls at the Little League World Series, threw a two-hitter to help Philadelphia beat Nashville 4-0 on Friday in the opener for both teams. The first girl to appear for a U.S. team in South Williamsport since 2004, Davis received rousing cheers during pregame introductions, every time she stepped to the plate and after she struck out the final batter. Davis had eight strikeouts and didn’t walk a batter. She retired the first six batters and needed only 70 pitches to complete the game.
