OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Yoenis Cespedes homered twice and tied a career high with five RBIs before leaving with an apparent right thumb injury, and the Oakland Athletics held off the Houston Astros 9-7 Wednesday night.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Southern Conference Commissioner John Iamarino is grateful he's through with the late-night rumors and frantic calls to league members about whether they'll be leaving - at least for now. Iamarino says the SoCon is locked in with 10 members eager to stay part of the Football Championship Subdivision league and aren't looking to bolt.

ROSSBURG, Ohio (AP) - Darrell Wallace Jr. won the Mudsummer Classic on Wednesday night on the dirt at Eldora Speedway for his second Camping World Truck Series victory of the year.
