NEWTON, Iowa—Less than two months after failing to qualify for the Indianapolis 500, James Hinchcliffe roared from behind to seize one of the more satisfying wins of his IndyCar career.
Hinchcliffe, from Oakville, Ont., passed Josef Newgarden with just over 40 laps left to win at the Iowa Speedway yesterday—his first victory of the season.
TORONTO—Ryan Borucki's introduction to the big leagues hasn't been easy but the rookie left-hander is embracing the challenge.
Borucki went seven innings, allowing just one earned run, in picking up a no-decision as the Blue Jays fell 2-1 to the Yankees in 10 innings yesterday afternoon.
LONDON—Canadian Milos Raonic is heading to the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the third year in a row.
The No. 13 seed defeated unseeded American Mackenzie McDonald 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-2 in the fourth round today.
Once again, Raonic was dominant with his serve. McDonald didn't have a single break-point opportunity against Raonic.

TORONTO—Marcus Stroman switched up his warm-up music for his start last night, using Drake's “Trophies” as a tribute to former teammate Jose Bautista.
But Bautista, who used “Trophies” as his walk-up music during Toronto's playoff-bound seasons in 2015 and 2016, may have benefited more from hearing it than Stroman did.
Decisions by most of the world's elite golfers to skip the PGA Tour's stop in West Virginia have been a boost for younger players like Xander Schauffele.
Schauffele had a one-stroke victory over Robert Streb at The Greenbrier resort last season, which ended with the 24-year-old from San Diego winning the Tour Championship and earning Rookie-of-the-Year honours.
REGINA—Jeremiah Masoli is looking to join some select company as he continues to emerge as the face of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats' resurgence.
The quarterback needs one more game of 300-plus yards passing to tie a long-standing CFL record currently shared by Sam (“The Rifle”) Etcheverry and Kent Austin.
TORONTO—Blue Jays' left-hander Ryan Borucki delivered another strong outing in just the second major-league start of his career.
