Justify defies odds in winning Triple Crown

NEW YORK—Justify defied all the odds on his way to achieving Triple Crown immortality.

The late bloomer won the Belmont Stakes by 1 3/4 lengths on Saturday, giving the sport its 13th Triple Crown champion.

American Pharoah ended a 37-year drought in 2015 and now just four years later, racing is celebrating another sweep of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont.

Mets knock off Dodgers

LOS ANGELES—Daniel Murphy just hoped no one was watching.

Murphy shocked the sleeping Dodgers by stealing an uncovered third base and went on to score the tying run.

Two innings later, Murphy hit a go-ahead homer off Zack Greinke that led the N.Y. Mets over L.A. 3-2 last night and into an NL Championship Series matchup with the Chicago Cubs.
