ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The St. Louis Blues pulled goalie Jake Allen from Game 6 after the Minnesota Wild scored their second goal.

The Wild took a 2-0 lead with 8:41 remaining in the second period Sunday when Justin Fontaine's shot glided between the rookie's pads, and coach Ken Hitchcock summoned veteran Brian Elliott.

Zach Parise scored first for Minnesota, another save Allen could have made. The bad-angle snap by Parise slipped between the post...

CHICAGO (AP) — Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon has made a terrific leaping catch against the Chicago White Sox.

Gordon hustled over and jumped into the stands down the left-field line to grab a foul ball off the bat of Micah Johnson in the sixth inning on Sunday. He landed in a group of fans, but Gordon returned to the field and it looked as if everyone was OK.

Gordon has won four consecutive Gold Gloves.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Kurt Busch dominated once he took the lead and won the rain-delayed NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Richmond International Raceway on Sunday.

Busch led 291 of the 400 laps on the 0.75-mile oval, and outran Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Kevin Harvick over the final dozen laps to end a 35-race winless streak.

The race looked much like the Xfinity Series event Friday night in which Denny Hamlin led 248 of 250 laps and only lost the lead...
