Spieth wins FedEx Cup

ATLANTA—Jordan Spieth didn’t need the Tour Championship, the FedEx Cup, or an extra $10 million to prove anything.

He just played that way.

No matter what happened yesterday at East Lake, his highlight always was going to be the green jacket he won at the Masters with a record-tying score.

The U.S. Open title he won at Chambers Bay only made it better.

Pope’s tiny Fiat surrounded by giant, gas-guzzling law enforcement SUVs in New York motorcade

NEW YORK When Pope Francis arrived for his first visit to New York, he again slipped into the backseat of a tiny Fiat 500L and was ferried away amid gas-guzzling SUVs and police cars.

There were dozens of vehicles: motorcycles, Chevrolet Suburbans and the pope’s car followed by more large SUVS and police patrol cars.

Mets inch closer

NEW YORK—Jonathon Niese won for the first time in a month and Michael Conforto homered as the N.Y. Mets inched closer to an NL East title with a 4-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves last night.

Daniel Murphy lined a two-run double and Yoenis Cespedes had three hits as the Mets handed hard-luck Shelby Miller (5-16) his 15th-straight defeat.

Jets’ defence stifles Colts

INDIANAPOLIS—Darrelle Revis’ new team is getting the same results he’s always had against Andrew Luck.

The veteran cornerback still is mystifying the young quarterback.

Revis picked off one pass, recovered two fumbles, and helped the suddenly opportunistic Jets’ defence come up with five turnovers again last night to help New York pull away for a 20-7 victory at Indianapolis.

Day moves to No. 1 in world

LAKE FOREST, Ill.—Jason Day has plenty of rivals at the moment but very few peers.

Day’s runaway victory victory yesterday in the BMW Championship vaulted him to No. 1 in the world ranking, backing up a boast the then little-known Australian made during a conference call with reporters in 2007—and for which he was roasted on more than one occasion since.

Mets have meltdown

NEW YORK—Managing innings for Matt Harvey, plus an entire team in a pennant race, is becoming quite a headache for Terry Collins.

Carlos Beltran, CC Sabathia, and the N.Y. Yankees took advantage of Harvey’s early exit last night—routing the sloppy N.Y. Mets 11-2 to tighten the AL East standings just in time for a critical trip to Toronto.
