All things considered, cotton candy tastes better than a cow bell!

ST PETERSBURG, Fl. -- Wade Davis' inspired pitching performance coupled with a four-home run barrage led the Rays to a 5-2 win over the Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon at Tropicana Field.

By winning, the Rays moved to within a half-game of the American League Wild Card-leading Red Sox, who lost to the Yankees in the first game of a day-night doubleheader on Sunday.

That NASA satellite fell back to earth the other day. (And that leads to a logical question: When can I expect somebody from NASA to come and get this thing off my roof?)


PHOENIX, Az. -- Disappointment and dismay marked the end of Tim Lincecum's season Sunday. But he already began finding hope for next season.

Lincecum became one of the unlikeliest pitchers in history to have a losing record as the Giants lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks, 5-2. The two-time Cy Young Award winner and four-time All-Star absorbed the decision to finish with a 13-14 mark, the first sub-.500 mark in his five-year career.

LOUDON, N.H. -- After climbing from his winning car Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Tony Stewart made the understatement of the year.

"We've got a shot at this thing," said Stewart, who by taking the checkered flag in the Sylvania 300 became the second driver to win the first two races in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

In a dramatic reversal of fortune, Stewart won the race -- and grabbed a seven-point lead in the Cup standings over 12th-place finisher Kevin Harvick -- when Clint Bowyer ran out of fuel with fewer than three laps to go.

"If that's not a flip-flop from last year, I don't know what is," Stewart radioed to crew chief Darian Grubb after crossing the finish line.

Stewart led last year's Chase race at the Magic Mile but handed the victory to Bowyer when he ran out of fuel on the final lap.

With his second consecutive victory, his second of the season and the 41st of his career, Stewart has more than a shot at the title. The 2002 and 2005 Cup champion, who downplayed his own chances entering NASCAR's 10-race playoff, now has to be considered the favorite.

Brad Keselowski parlayed pit strategy into a second-place run, and Greg Biffle, who won the first two Chase races in 2008, came home third, followed by Jeff Gordon and Brian Vickers. Matt Kenseth, David Ragan, Carl Edwards, Juan Montoya and Regan Smith completed the top 10.
