ATLANTA (AP) — An alarm and an emergency evacuation message on a sign board during the Atlanta Braves game turned out to be a false alarm. An equipment malfunction during an altercation at a ballpark restaurant was the source of confusion in the top of the third, the Braves said Tuesday night...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Nashville Predators, the final team into the NHL playoffs, are headed to the first Stanley Cup Final in franchise history. Coach Peter Laviolette insists they won’t just be happy to be there either. “Our guys know the big picture,” Laviolette said. “They understand...
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — After winning the Indianapolis 500 pole, collecting a $100,000 check and doing the usual interview circuit, Scott Dixon tried to relax. Instead, he got the scare of his life. As he ordered dinner for his teammates at one of the few fast-food restaurants still open near...
INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) — LeBron James was nowhere to be seen, staying behind the scenes, keeping a low profile. Just as he did in Game 3. James did not address the media Monday, hours after one of the worst postseason games of his career, an 11-point, six-turnover, head-scratching atrocity in...
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Nolan Fontana was called safe and then out on the same play by the same umpire — without a replay review. Welcome to the majors, kid. Nothing is certain. Making his major league debut for the Los Angeles Angels, Fontana was initially ruled safe by second base umpire...

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — A five-run ninth inning for the Red Sox that lasted more than a half-hour derailed any chance Eduardo Rodriguez had of getting his first career complete game. Not that the left-hander was complaining. After a bitter loss to Oakland a year ago when he allowed just one hit...

CLEVELAND (AP) — Leprechauns are imaginary. Celtic pride is very real. Avery Bradley’s 3-pointer danced on the rim and dropped with less than a second left and Boston, blown out in the first two games of the Eastern Conference finals and playing without star Isaiah Thomas, stunned the Cleveland...
BOSTON (AP) — Five letters authenticated by state officials show Aaron Hernandez asked prison officials to share a cell with inmates he described as close friends. In a June 2015 letter, Hernandez asks to be moved to another part of prison where he says he has no enemies and to “celly up” with...
