Chris Graythen/Getty Imgages for NASCAR(RICHMOND, Va.) -- Kurt Busch snapped a long 35-race losing streak on Sunday at Richmond International Speedway after he held off Stewart-Haas racing teammate Kevin Harvick.

Busch led 291 of the 400 laps and credited his team for his successful day.

"We're winners in April. It feels good," Busch said. "Plenty of time to do fun things to build the team up, get stronger, learn from all these races coming up and continue to go forward."

"Like [team owner] Gene Haas said: One win is great. I want four or five more," Busch continued.

Busch missed the first three races due to a suspension after his alleged domestic assault on an ex-girlfriend, but said he was always confident he'd be able to focus on the track.

"Standing on the truth the whole time, that gave me the feeling of, when I do get back to the car, it's going to be easy to focus, and I think I've shown that," Busch said.

After starting the race in 36th, Jimmie Johnson finished in third place.

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers took care of business and swept the Boston Celtics out of the first round of the playoffs on Sunday 101-93.

Kevin Love left in the first quarter after suffering a dislocated shoulder and did not return and is questionable moving forward in the playoffs.

"That's just not a basketball play," Love said of the way Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk tangled up his right arm with Love's left.  "I expect it to be physical, but when it has to go to that length it's just not the way it's supposed to be, that's not how you play basketball."

LeBron James scored 27 and Kyrie Irving added 24 in the sweep.

"It didn't look like a basketball play," James said of the Love injury.  "I've seen a lot of tie-ups in my day and that tie-up was a little different."

"You want to play the game of basketball the right way, but you never want it to get out of hand when you have injuries," James continued.  

Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas had 21 in the loss and Avery Bradley finished with 16.

Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images(NEW ORLEANS) -- Pelicans officials plan to be aggressive as possible in presenting Anthony Davis with a maximum five-year deal that could exceed $140 million, according to league sources.

The exact figures will depend on how much the NBA salary cap actually rises in 2016, but sources told ESPN.com that the Pelicans indeed intend to present Davis with the biggest offer they can once the window for negotiations opens July 1.

The Pelicans would then have until Oct. 31 to convince Davis to sign a five-year deal that makes him their designated player.

Davis just joined Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain and Bob McAdoo as the only players in league history ‎to average at least 30 points and 10 rebounds in their first four NBA playoff games.

Ron Vesely/MLB Photos via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers put Yasiel Puig on the 15-day disabled list due to a tight left hamstring before Sunday's game at Petco Park, marking the first time the outfielder has been on the DL in his career.

Puig aggravated the injury trying to beat out a groundball to third base Friday night. He first injured his hamstring April 13 and had been in and out of the lineup since then. Puig tried testing the injury by running on the field and hitting in the indoor batting cage.

"I think he's disappointed, because he thinks he's going to be ready to play in four or five days," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "That's the tough part. Being ready to play and being 100 percent are different. Yasiel plays at one speed. I think we see that. There's no real putting the governor on him. He's just going to play at that speed. It's tough for him to say, 'Hey, you've got to back off.' That's where you've got to protect him from himself."

Puig was batting .279 with two home runs on the young season.

Elliot J. Schecter/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) -- St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright is expected to miss the rest of the 2015 season due to an Achilles injury he suffered Saturday night while stumbling out of the batter's box, a source told ESPN's Jim Bowden, confirming an earlier report by Fox Sports.

The Cardinals placed Wainwright on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with what they termed as an Achilles injury.  He is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday.

"My foot just shut down on me," Wainwright said Saturday after the Cardinals' 5-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Wainwright had a 2-0 lead when he stumbled getting out of the batter's box on his popup that led off the fifth inning. He was helped off the field by a trainer and left the game.

The Flames would pick up the pace and grab a 5-4 lead at 15:43 into the third period on a goal from center Matt Stajan. Center Jiri Hudler and forward Michael Ferland would tack on insurance goals for Calgary.

Photos.com/Thinkstock(SAN DIEGO) -- Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier, first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, second baseman Howie Kendrick and third baseman Juan Uribe each hit a home run as Los Angeles (11-6) defeated the San Diego Padres (10-9) on Saturday night, 11-8.

With the score tied at 3-3 in the top of the second inning, Gonzalez took a 2-2 pitch from Ian Kennedy (0-1) and sent it over the right-field wall for a three-run homer. It’s his seventh blast of the season.

Dodgers starter Brandon McCarthy (3-0) gave up six earned runs across five innings of work. After allowing a three-run home run to Padres outfielder Justin Upton in the sixth, he came out with tightness in his right elbow. The right-hander is scheduled to have an MRI exam on Monday.

It’s the Padres first home series loss since last season’s All-Star break. They entered the series against the Dodgers, 11-0-1 at Petco Park.

Hannah Foslien/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- The Boston Red Sox placed outfielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring Saturday.

The Red Sox recalled pitcher Matt Barnes from Triple-A Pawtucket to take Victorino's place.

This is the third time in two seasons Victorino has been placed on the DL due to his right hamstring. Despite that, Red Sox skipper John Farrell says the move had almost as much to do with the team as it did Victorino.

"I wouldn't say he stalled, he's actually improving," Farrell said when talking about Victorino. "He worked out today early this morning, ran in the pool. But we felt like with the number of innings our bullpen is pitching, that is the overriding thing at this point.''

With Victorino out, the Red Sox can use Brock Holt, Allen Craig or Daniel Nava in right field.
