BALTIMORE --  Tampa Bay's offense picked up the pitching on Sunday afternoon, and the Rays left Baltimore on a happy note.
The Rays' offense scored its most runs since April 28 in taking the 9-6 win at Camden Yards with 22,032 watching.
By winning, the Rays claimed their weekend series against the Orioles while recording their second consecutive win and their fifth win in their last six games to remain in third place, four games behind the Red Sox in the American League East.

SAN FRANCISCO --  The Giants are proving that heart, quite obviously, is more essential than statistics.
After all, using numbers to explain their National League West-leading record, their success at home or Sunday's 4-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds is an utter waste of time.
Sure, the Giants possess excellent pitching -- remarkable enough for them to build a 37-29 record despite being outscored, 233-230.
The Giants also boast the West's best home record (19-12) despite averaging 2.8 runs per game at AT&T Park. The 6-4 homestand they completed Sunday, during which they scored all of 24 runs, was typical.

LONG POND, Pa. -- Jeff Gordon may be starting to feel his age, but he certainly didn't show it in Sunday's 5-Hour Energy 500 at Pocono Raceway.
"I'm just so excited to be a part of this sport," Gordon said in Victory Lane after taking the checkered flag 2.965 seconds ahead of runner-up Kurt Busch. "I'm going to be 40 this year [Aug. 4]. I'm an old man now."
Statistically, the old man already is an important part of Sprint Cup history. His victory Sunday was his second of the year, his fifth at the tricky 2.5-mile triangular track and the 84th of his career, tying Gordon with Darrell Waltrip and Bobby Allison for third on the all-time list.
