PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Ryan Howard hit his second homer in two games, helping the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Atlanta Braves 5-4 on Sunday.

Howard's miserable season had already cost him his cleanup spot in the order, and he entered the game batting .189. Howard hit a two-run homer on Friday and a three-run shot in the first inning against Trevor Cahill (0-3) on Sunday.

Howard, who once hit 45 or more homers in a season for four straight years, has...

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Penguins stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin say they're in it for the long haul.

MIAMI (AP) — Adeiny Hechavarria hit a bases-loaded triple after a botched rundown kept the inning alive, and the Miami Marlins completed their first three-game sweep of the Washington Nationals since May 2012 by winning 6-2 Sunday.

The Marlins earned their fifth consecutive victory after a 3-11 start. The defending NL East champion Nationals (7-12) lost their fifth game in a row — their longest skid since July 2013 — and fell behind Miami into fourth place in the...

CINCINNATI (AP) — Rookie Addison Russell doubled with the bases loaded — one of his best moments during his first week in the majors — and the Chicago Cubs held on for a 5-2 victory on Sunday and a sweep of their rain-shortened series against the Cincinnati Reds.

The 21-year-old second baseman was in a slump when he broke the game open with his three-run double in the fourth inning off Anthony DeSclafani (2-1). Miguel Montero had a solo homer and a run-scoring single off...
