Blues even up series

DALLAS—David Backes gave the St. Louis Blues a big gift on his 32nd birthday—another overtime goal to go home even.

Last-lap pass fuels Edwards

RICHMOND, Va.—Carl Edwards had been grinding for 30 laps yesterday—doing everything he could to catch Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch in a two-way breakaway from the pack at Richmond International Raceway.

Jays fall to Orioles

BALTIMORE—After a wild first inning, it appeared as if the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles finally found their offensive mojo.

But the Jays never added to their early outburst while Baltimore waited until the latter stages before rallying for a 3-2 victory last night.

Manny Machado drove in two runs, including the tie-breaker in the eighth inning.
