Pirates Fall To Rangers
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Struggling sluggers Prince Fielder and Mitch Moreland homered during Texas' four-run fourth inning, and the Rangers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-2 on Sunday for their eighth straight series victory at home. Texas starter Martin Perez (3-4), with a history of getting rattled in jams, escaped an inning with a runner at third and no outs for the second consecutive start. The left-hander gave up two runs in six innings and finished May with a 2.23 ERA. Fielder ended a 34-game homer drought with his third of the season leading off the fourth. Moreland, who stopped a 1-for-27 skid with a homer Saturday, hit a three-run shot halfway up the upper deck in right field for his sixth, making it 4-2. Pittsburgh lefty Francisco Liriano (4-4) had yet to give up a homer to a left-handed hitter this season.

Rookie Takes Win At Indy 500
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Alexander Rossi has pulled off an improbable win in the 100th Indianapolis 500. It was so unlikely, the 24-year old rookie said after the race he has no idea how his team did it. Rossi did it was a fuel conservation strategy that saw him run the final 36 laps without a pit stop. The Californian and his Andretti Huerta Autosport team cut it so close, he ran out of fuel on his victory lap. Race leader Carlos Munoz was forced to pit with four laps to go for fuel opening the door for Rossi. Munoz finished second, followed by Josef Newgarden, Tony Kanaan and Charlie Kimball. Helio Castroneves was the last rookie to win the race in 2001. (photo: AP)

Truex Jr. Dominates Coca-Cola 600
CONCORD, N.C (AP) - Martin Truex Jr. put together a dominant performance in winning the Coca-Cola 600, the longest race of the Sprint Cup season. Truex started from the pole and earned his first victory of the season by leading for a whopping 392 of 400 laps in the 600-mile race. He broke a 49-year-old race record for most laps led, replacing the mark set by Jim Paschal in 1967. He also set a new NASCAR record by leading 588 miles. Truex finished more than 2 1/2 seconds ahead of Kevin Harvick, with Jimmie Johnson in third. The only time Truex gave up the lead was when he pitted and others stayed on the track. Johnson was the only other driver to lead for more than two laps. Denny Hamlin and Brad Keselowski rounded out the top five.
