Alyssa Thomas and Jas­mine Thomas each scored 20 points, and the Con­necti­cut Sun up­set the pre­vi­ously un­beaten Min­nesota Lynx, 98-93, in a WNBA game in St. Paul, Minn.

Maya Moore had a game-high 22 points for Min­nesota, which had won its first nine games. GOLF

Lexi Thompson shot a 64 on the Blythe­field lay­out re­duced to a par of 69 be­cause of flood­ing, giv­ing her a one-stroke lead in the Mei­jer LPGA Clas­sic in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Brooke Hen­der­son, the leader after each of the first two rounds, had a 67 to drop into a tie for sec­ond with Lee-Anne Pace (61), Sung Hyun Park (62) and Jenny Shin (63).

Denny Ham­lin inched ahead of William By­ron on the fi­nal turn and nosed out the rookie at the fin­ish line, win­ning the clos­est NASCAR Xfin­ity race at Michi­gan In­ter­na­tional Speed­way since the ad­vent of elec­tronic scor­ing in the se­ries.

It was Ham­lin’s 16th ca­reer Xfin­ity vic­tory and first in three starts this year, but the 19-yearold By­ron made him earn it. By­ron led after a restart with two laps re­main­ing, but Ham­lin pres­sured him the rest of the way, and the Cup Se­ries veteran even­tu­ally pre­vailed by 0.012 sec­onds in his No. 20 Toy­ota.

Peter Burl­ing and Emi­rates Team New Zealand made fewer mis­takes than Jimmy Spithill and Or­a­cle Team USA and won the first two races of the 35th Amer­ica’s Cup.

Although they won twice, by 30 sec­onds and by 1:28, the Ki­wis lead just 1-0. Or­a­cle earned a bonus point for win­ning the qual­i­fiers, but it was ac­tu­ally a neg­a­tive point for the Ki­wis, so the first-race win merely erased that. The first team to seven points wins.
