CHARLOTTE, N.C. — There are hundreds of guidebooks on how to handle grief, how to navigate the emotional suffering that follows a significant loss.

None of those studies offer a clean timetable on when the roller coaster of emotion will come to a stop. So there is no timetable on when Tony Stewart will get back into a race car.

The 3-time NASCAR champion has skipped two races since his car struck and killed Kevin Ward Jr. during an Aug. 9 sprint car race. His Stewart-Haas Racing team will not pressure him to return and wins and trophies and a berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship have all been put into perspective in a sport in which the show always goes on.

It has been one unusual summer for two of Canada's top young players.

Bennett and Andrew Wiggins, the last two No. 1 overall NBA draft picks, are expected to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a deal for All-Star forward Kevin Love, perhaps as soon as this weekend.

DENVER — Drew Stubbs capped Colorado’s five-run ninth inning with a three-run homer, sending the Rockies to a 10-9 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday in the first game of a doubleheader.

The Reds carried a 9-5 lead into the ninth, but All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman walked four straight batters before he was replaced by J.J. Hoover. Pinch-hitter Wilin Rosario then hit a sacrifice fly to trim Cincinnati’s lead to two.

CLEVELAND — For much of the weekend, Baltimore didn’t look like a division leader or contender.

They were ordinary Orioles.

One inning salvaged them.
