BALTIMORE (AP) — Let it rain again on the Preakness. Team Nyquist doesn’t seem concerned. A driving rainstorm didn’t faze American Pharoah as he splashed his way to victory in the second leg of the Triple Crown last year, and it sure appears like Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist will have to do the...
The leader of the U.S. Olympic Committee says the latest anti-doping headlines make it “increasingly difficult to defend the current system.” In a wide-ranging interview Friday with The Associated Press, USOC CEO Scott Blackmun spoke about America’s preparation for the Rio de Janeiro Games —...
CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Rain washed out all track activity Friday at Charlotte Motor Speedway, which will now try to cram it’s All-Star weekend into one day. The steady showers forced NASCAR to call off the scheduled Sprint Showdown, a race that will send five drivers not already qualified for the...

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — For a San Jose team whose playoff struggles have often come down to running into a streaky goaltender at the wrong time, it must be nice to have the goalie making all the stops. Martin Jones made 22 saves in his second straight shutout and Tomas Hertl scored twice to give...
IRVING, Texas (AP) — Jordan Spieth covered his mouth in disbelief on the 16th green when his long eagle putt stopped short of falling in for a share of the lead. His group then rushed to complete the final two holes before dark. Spieth finished with consecutive pars for a 6-under 64 on Thursday...
CLEVELAND (AP) — Overshadowed as Golden State shot down history during the regular season, the Cavaliers are making this postseason their own. Perfectly. LeBron James recorded a triple-double and Cleveland improved to 10-0 in the playoffs with a 108-89 victory over the Toronto Raptors on...
