When Chicago White ace Chris Sale left with a two-run lead after seven innings, Kansas City first baseman Eric Hosmer had a message in the Royals dugout. ''This is when the magic happens,'' Hosmer yelled to his teammates. Cuthbert drove in the go-ahead run with an infield hit in a three-run eighth, and the Royals rallied for the third straight game in a 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.

Jordan Spieth has a win at home in the Lone Star State. Spieth won at Colonial after birdieing the last three holes Sunday for a 5-under 65, including a chip-in from behind the 17th green following a fortunate bounce off a marshal. It was the eighth career win for Spieth, the world's No. 2-ranked player, and came in only his third tournament since blowing a five-stroke lead on the back nine last month when trying to win the Masters for the second year in a row.

Jayson Werth noticed a difference in Stephen Strasburg in spring training and felt the ace was headed for a big season. Strasburg won his 12th consecutive decision dating to last season and Werth connected for a pinch-hit grand slam to help the Washington Nationals close out the season series against the St. Louis Cardinals with a 10-2 win on Sunday. Wilson Ramos had three hits, including a two-run homer, and drove in four runs.

Starlin Castro's two-run homer off Odorizzi in the seventh inning was enough to give the Yankees a 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday. ''We really weren't doing much,'' Girardi said. According to Baseball Reference data going back to 1913, the Yankees' only other one-hit win was when Charlie Mullen had an RBI single to beat Cleveland in six innings on July 10, 1914.

A new era for the Indianapolis 500 arrived in the form of a most unfamiliar driver. Alexander Rossi outlasted his faster rivals - and his fuel tank - for a stunning victory Sunday in the historic 100th running of ''The Greatest Spectacle In Racing.'' The unlikely win allowed the long-suffering Andretti family to celebrate in the biggest race of their storied careers and it left the top drivers in the field fuming over Rossi's good fortune. Rossi was a 66-to-1 long shot and certainly not the driver anyone would have picked to win.
