NEW YORK (AP) — Top-seeded Fort Wayne has selected No. 8 seed Reno as its first-round opponent in the NBA Development League playoffs.

The NBA D-League allows the three division winners to choose their opponents from the four teams that finished with the worst records.

The East champion Mad Ants (34-16) chose the Bighorns, who finished 27-23. The Los Angeles D-Fenders (31-19), the No. 2 seed and the West Division champion, picked the sixth-seeded...

DENVER (AP) — The home runs are coming in bunches for Mark Trumbo, and the reasons behind the power surge are the least of his concerns.

Trumbo homered in a fourth straight game, matching a career best and an Arizona team record, and the Diamondbacks averted a sweep by beating Colorado 5-3 on Sunday.

"I couldn't tell you when it's coming or why it's happening," said Trumbo, whose two-run shot in the fifth was the 100th homer of his career. "Maybe the...

HOUSTON (AP) — Jered Weaver left too many fastballs up in the strike zone, and the Houston Astros took advantage with four home runs off the Los Angeles Angels' ace.

Scott Feldman threw seven strong innings, five Astros players went deep in all, and Houston snapped a three-game losing streak with a 7-4 victory over the Angels on Sunday.

Jason Castro, Matt Dominguez, Jesus Guzman and Alex Presley homered off Weaver (0-2). Jonathan Villar added a two-...

NEW YORK (AP) — Princess of Sylmar was an easy winner in her comeback on Sunday, the $98,000 Cat Cay Stakes at Aqueduct.

She was a leading figure in the 3-year-old filly division last season, winning four straight Grade 1 stakes, including the Kentucky Oaks. The Cat Cay was Princess of Sylmar's first race since finishing sixth last November in the Breeders' Cup Distaff at Santa Anita.

She had no problem dispatching four Cat Cay rivals as the 3-5...

NEW YORK (AP) — Jonathon Niese put to rest any worries about his health. Travis d'Arnaud did little to set aside any concerns about his ability to hit big league pitching.

Niese was sharp into the sixth inning of his injury delayed first start of the season Sunday, when the New York Mets lost 2-1 to the Cincinnati Reds, missing an opportunity to finish off a three-game sweep.

"I was very, very impressed, his velocity stayed consistent throughout the...

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Blake Griffin and Chris Paul scored 23 points apiece, and the Los Angeles Clippers hung another rout on the Lakers, winning 120-97 Sunday to take three of four games this season from their beleaguered Staples Center co-tenants.

It wasn't quite the blowout of the Clippers' previous two wins — 48 points on March 6 and 36 points on Jan. 10 — but they were easily in command as the designated home team.

J.J. Redick added 15 points and...

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Gene Haas believes his decision to hire Kurt Busch was validated by Busch's victory last Sunday at Martinsville Speedway.

"I look like a genius this week, don't I?" Haas said Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway.

The founder of Stewart-Haas Racing hired Busch in August for a new fourth car that he funds out of pocket. Haas wanted Busch to drive a Haas Automation-sponsored car because he believed the driver could take his company to...
