Greening's goal in 2nd OT lifts Sens over Pens
OTTAWA (AP) - Colin Greening scored 7:39 into double overtime, and the Ottawa Senators rallied for a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins that cut their series deficit to 2-1 on Sunday night.
Daniel Alfredsson got Ottawa even 1-1 by scoring a short-handed goal with 29 seconds left in regulation just after the Senators pulled goalie Craig Anderson for an extra skater.
Anderson made 49 saves, including 18 after regulation. Tomas Vokoun stopped 46 shots for Pittsburgh and took his first loss (4-1) since taking over for No. 1 Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury.
Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series will be in Ottawa on Wednesday.
Tyler Kennedy scored with just over a minute to play in the second period to give the Penguins a 1-0 lead. That goal stood up until Alfredsson tied it in the closing seconds of the third.
Phils' Galvis, Kratz homer off Chapman in 9th
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Freddy Galvis and Erik Kratz each homered off closer Aroldis Chapman in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday, rallying the Philadelphia Phillies past the Cincinnati Reds for a stunning 3-2 victory.
Chapman (3-2) blew his second straight save opportunity after converting his first eight chances this season. The 100 mph throwing left-hander walked pinch-hitter Delmon Young on four pitches to open the ninth.
Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee pinch ran and was caught trying to steal second base, but Chapman wouldn't record another out. Kratz, who entered the game in the third inning after Carlos Ruiz left with a strained right hamstring, pulled a 3-2 pitch over the seats in left to tie it 1-all.
Galvis followed by lining a 1-1 pitch just inside the foul pole in left.
Antonio Bastardo (2-1) pitched a scoreless ninth inning for Philadelphia.
Phillies' Ruiz, Howard set for MRIs
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz and first baseman Ryan Howard will have MRIs on Monday.
Ruiz will miss Monday's game at the Miami Marlins after straining his right hamstring Sunday in a 3-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Ruiz, who said he felt a "pop" while running the bases in the second inning, didn't make the trip but hopes to rejoin the team on Tuesday in Miami.
Howard didn't play Sunday due to left knee soreness. He will not join the team on the trip to Miami.
Howard says his knee's "been acting up."
He says: "I've been able to tough it out but told (Manuel) it was sore."
Howard, who missed 91 games last season with an Achilles' tear, has four hits in his last 34 at-bats and is batting .245 with 46 strikeouts in 151 at-bats this season.
Phillies' Brown recognizes Powerball-winning store
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown is plenty familiar with the Florida store that sold this weekend's huge Powerball-winning ticket.
Brown is from Zephyrhills, Fla., where someone bought the lucky ticket worth an estimated $590.5 million.
Brown says he has shopped at the Publix supermarket where the winning numbers were sold.
The winner has not yet come forward to claim the prize, and Brown says he plans to phone relatives in his hometown to get some updates. Zephyrhills has a population of around 13,000 and is about 30 miles northeast of Tampa.
"I just heard it this morning, it's pretty cool," Brown said Sunday after Philadelphia beat Cincinnati 3-2.
Locke, Pirates shut down Astros 1-0
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jeff Locke allowed three hits over seven innings, Pedro Alvarez homered and the Pittsburgh Pirates won for the eighth time in 10 games, 1-0 over the Houston Astros on Sunday.
Locke (4-1) won his fourth straight decisions and gave up one run or fewer for the fifth time in his past eight outings. He struck out four and walked three.
The notoriously streaky Alvarez pushed his average above .200 for just the second time since the second game of the season. His eighth home run came on the first pitch and was an opposite field line drive down the left field line in the fifth.
Alvarez's longball was his second of the series and third in eight games. It was the lone mistake by Astros starter Lucas Harrell, who lost his third consecutive decision despite allowing four hits and one walk in seven innings.
Duke beats Notre Dame 12-11 in NCAA lax quarters
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - David Lawson scored his career-best fifth goal with 2:16 remaining to lift Duke to a 12-11 win against Notre Dame in the lacrosse quarterfinals Sunday.
The Blue Devils (14-5) advance to play Cornell in Saturday's semifinals in Philadelphia. It will be Duke's seventh consecutive trip to the Final Four. The Blue Devils won the national championship in 2010.
Duke and Notre Dame (11-5) traded goals for most of the game with neither team leading by more than two. The Irish took an 11-9 lead with 9:29 left after consecutive goals to begin the fourth period, but the Blue Devils rallied late. They scored the final three goals.
Notre Dame had multiple late chances to tie but failed to capitalize.
Denver rallies to beat UNC 12-11 in lax quarters
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Eric Law scored with 13 seconds left to cap Denver's big comeback in a 12-11 win over North Carolina in an NCAA lacrosse quarterfinal Sunday.
Denver trailed by as many as six goals and was down five at halftime.
The Pioneers (14-4) advance to play top-seeded Syracuse in next Saturday's semifinals in Philadelphia. It will be Denver's second trip to the Final Four in the last three years.
Fifth-seeded North Carolina jumped out to a 6-0 lead after less than 10 minutes, but the fourth-seeded Pioneers rallied. After tying the game with 1:31 to play, Denver regained possession and stalled late. Eric Adamson made a difficult shot attempt that was blocked, but Law was there for a rebound goal from the left side.
