Nationals’ bullpen flops again

WASHINGTON—With a chance to gain ground in the NL East race, Drew Storen and the rest of Washington’s relievers had a series to forget.

Storen yielded Yoenis Cespedes’ go-ahead homer in the eighth inning, moments after pinch-hitter Kelly Johnson connected for a tying shot off Stephen Strasburg, as the N.Y. Mets rallied past the Nationals 5-3 last night for a pivotal three-game sweep.

Edwards rallies for win

DARLINGTON, S.C.—Joe Gibbs couldn’t help but beam about this team victory.

Carl Edwards drove superbly, crew chief Darian Grubb made stellar calls with his car two laps down, and the No. 19 crew got the car out of the pits in first when it counted most.

The result was Edwards’ first win in the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.
