INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- If you hadn't heard of Alexander Rossi, you can read his name on the Borg-Warner Trophy.

The 24-year-old American entered the Indianapolis 500 as a longshot before winning the 100th running of the race. Rossi stretched his fuel to the finish before running out of gas after taking the checkered flag. The Californian earned a victory for Andretti Autosport by running the final 36 laps without a pit stop.

Rossi had been driving in F1 before coming back to America this year to drive for Bryan Herta in a partnership with Andretti Autosport. Herta was the winning car owner in 2011 with Dan Wheldon.

Race leader Carlos Munoz (MOON'-yohz) 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 (kuh-NAHN) and Charlie Kimball.

Helio Castroneves (EHL'-ee-oh kas-troh-NEHV'-us) was the last rookie to win the race in 2001.


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.


UNDATED (AP) -- The San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals remain two of hottest teams in the majors.

The Giants made it 15 wins in their last 17 games as Johnny Cueto (KWAY'-toh) held Colorado to one earned run in six innings of an 8-3 rout of the Rockies. Hunter Pence delivered a trio of RBI doubles, Brandon Belt added a two-run double and Denard Span smacked a solo homer. The Giants collected eight doubles to back Cueto, who improved to 8-1.

The Giants' hot streak began after they dropped three straight and five of seven to fall to 17-18.

Meanwhile, the Royals took over first place in the American League Central by posting their second straight comeback win over the Chicago White Sox. One day after a seven-run ninth gave them an 8-7 victory, the Royals scored three times in the eighth to beat the Pale Hose 5-4. Lorenzo Cain sparked the rally with a solo homer and Brett Eibner tied it with a bases-loaded walk before Cheslor Cuthbert singled home Jarrod Dyson with the go-ahead run. Cain had two RBIs and Eric Hosmer went 3-for-4 with an RBI to help the Royals win for the 10th time in 13 games.

Elsewhere in the majors:

-- The Dodgers won for the sixth time in seven games as Adrian Gonzalez delivered a tiebreaking, two-run single to finish with three RBIs in a 4-2 triumph over the Mets in New York. Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw struck out 10 and allowed two runs and four hits over 7 2/3 innings but had to settle for a no-decision following Curtis Granderson's game-tying triple in the eighth.

-- Ben Zobrist (ZOH'-brihst) hit a three-run homer and the Chicago Cubs earned their fifth consecutive win while completing a three-game sweep of Philadelphia 7-2. Miguel Montero added a solo homer and two RBIs to back John Lackey, who allowed a run and four hits in seven innings to help the Cubs improve to 34-14.

-- Texas knocked off Pittsburgh 6-2 as Mitch Moreland belted a three-run shot and Prince Fielder added his first home run in 35 games. Martin (mahr-TEEN') Perez outpitched Francisco Liriano, allowing two runs and seven hits in six innings as the Rangers moved a season-high seven games over .500.

-- Stephen Strasburg improved to 9-0 by holding the Cardinals to a run and six hits in six innings of Washington's 10-2 trouncing of St. Louis. The Redbirds trailed just 3-2 until Anthony Rendon (rehn-DOHN'), Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos (RAH'-mohs) homered over the Nationals' last two at-bats, helping Washington earn a split of the four-game series.

-- Chris Owings slammed a solo homer to ignite a five-run second before Paul Goldschmidt capped the rally with a two-run double in Arizona's 6-3 triumph over San Diego. Archie Bradley chipped in an RBI single and gave up three runs and four hits with nine strikeouts over 7 1/3 innings.

-- Jonathan Lucroy (LOO'-kroy) lined a run-scoring triple and had three RBIs as Milwaukee topped Cincinnati 5-4. Jimmy Nelson held the Reds to a pair of runs and six hits over 7 1/3 innings.

-- Derek Dietrich was 3-for-3 with a two-run homer and three RBIs as Florida beat Atlanta 7-3 to salvage the series finale. Marcell Ozuna (oh-ZOO'-nuh) also homered and Tom Koehler gave up two earned runs and three hits in seven innings.

-- Dustin Pedroia (peh-DROY'-uh) doubled home the tiebreaking run in the 11th inning as Boston downed Toronto 5-3. Xander Bogaerts (ZAN'-dur BOH'-gahrts) went 2-for-6 to stretch his hitting streak to 22 games.

-- Mark Trumbo lined a three-run double in the first inning before Baltimore banged out a pair of home runs in a 6-4 victory at Cleveland. Hyun Soo Kim went deep to snap a 4-4 tie in the seventh, and Nolan Reimold (RY'-mohld) homered to cap the scoring.

-- Jake Odorizzi held the Yankees to one hit in seven innings, but the that one hit was Starlin Castro's two-run homer that gave New York a 2-1 triumph over Tampa Bay. Dellin Betances (beh-TAN'-sehs), Andrew Miller and Aroldis (ah-ROHL'-dihs) Chapman combined to strike out seven over three perfect innings after winning pitcher Nathan Eovaldi (eh-VAHL'-dee) fanned seven.

-- Billy Butler supplied a go-ahead, two-run single in the sixth inning as Oakland downed Detroit 4-2. Rich Hill is 8-3 after limiting the Tigers to two runs and five hits while striking out nine in 6 1/3 innings.

-- Houston pulled out an 8-6 win over the Angels on Carlos Correa's three-run blast in the top of the 13th. Jake Marisnick cracked a two-run homer and Luis Valbuena (val-BWAY'-nuh) singled home the tying run in the Astros' second consecutive win.

-- Minnesota completed a three-game sweep in Seattle as Joe Mauer and Miguel Sano (sah-NOH') both homered for the third consecutive day to lead the Twins' 5-4 win over the Mariners. Ricky Nolasco yielded two runs on three hits over six innings for the Twins, who entered the series a major league-worst 12-34.


MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The Grizzlies have formally announced the hiring of former Miami assistant David Fizdale as their new coach. He'll be introduced at a news conference Tuesday.

The hiring was first reported Thursday by The Associated Press and others. The Grizzlies did not disclose terms, but Yahoo! Sports reported Fizdale agreed to a four-year contract.

Fizdale has spent the past eight years with the Miami Heat, the past two as assistant head coach to Erik Spoelstra (SPOHL'-strah).


DALLAS (AP) -- New Orleans Pelicans guard Bryce Dejean-Jones was fatally shot Saturday after kicking down the door of what he mistakenly thought was his girlfriend's apartment in Dallas.

His agent says Dejean-Jones returned from a walk early Saturday and went to an apartment on the third floor, one floor below his girlfriend's. A Dallas police spokesman says that when Dejean-Jones entered the wrong apartment and began kicking at the bedroom door, the man who lived there retrieved a handgun and fired.


Speith rallies to win

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Jordan Spieth (SPEETH) shot a 5-under 65 to win the Dean & Deluca Invitational at Colonial for the first victory in his home state of Texas.

He closed with birdies on the final three holes for a 17-under total to finish three strokes ahead of Harris English, who shot a 66 on Sunday.

It was the eighth career win for the world's No. 2-ranked player, and came in his third tournament since blowing a five-stroke lead on the back nine at the Masters last month.
