Johnson wins Pocono 500
Jimmie Johnson used a near-flawless performance to overcome a NASCAR mistake, drawing closer to the points lead with a win under caution Sunday at Pocono Raceway.
Jeremy Mayfield, who has two of his three career victories at Pocono, finished second. He pushed Johnson hard inside and was about a car-length behind when another yellow flag came out with three laps left.
Bobby Labonte, who won the 1999 Pocono 500 and the 1999 and 2001 Pennsylvania 500, was third.
Schumacher wins the Canadian Grand Prix
Michael Schumacher and his Ferrari team won the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday for his seventh victory in eight races, using a two pit-stop strategy to perfection to overcome a season-worst sixth-place start.
The German, who holds just about every major record in the globe-trotting Formula One series, also picked up his third straight victory and fourth in five years on Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. His seven victories in Montreal is a Formula One record for wins at one track.
Miami 3, Florida 1
Cesar Carillo pitched a four-hitter to give Miami its 21st trip to the College World Series.
The victory gave Miami a super regional sweep over the Gators, who have been eliminated by the Hurricanes three straight seasons.
It will be the third trip to Omaha in the last four years for Miami (50-11).
Carillo (11-0) surrendered his only run in the first inning on Ben Harrison’s RBI single.
Florida starter Connor Falkenbach (10-7) cruised until giving up a two-run homer to Richard Giannotti in the sixth that gave Miami a 2-1 lead.
Miami added an insurance run when Adam Ricks singled, advanced to third on a sacrifice and a wild pitch and scored on Jim Burt’s sacrifice fly.
