Indians sweep White Sox behind Carmona

compiled from staff and wire reports

Shin-Soo Choo belted a grand slam and drove in five runs, leading the Indians to their first three-game home sweep of the White Sox since May 2003.

Choo went 2 for 3 with a walk, hitting his second career slam in the second inning off Gavin Floyd (0-2). His first grand slam came against Boston’s Josh Beckett on August 3, 2006.

Fausto Carmona (mlb)

Fausto Carmona (2-0) gave up three runs over six innings for Cleveland. Chris Perez came on with runners on first and third and one out in the ninth inning, giving up a sacrifice fly to Carlos Quentin before throwing a called third strike past Paul Konerko for his fourth save.

The game was played in Cleveland.

Mike Modano contemplating retirement or a 21st season in Dallas.

compiled by staff and wire reports

Mike Modano of the Dallas Stars has spent the recent hockey season wondering if he should keep playing or should he retire.

It’s been a week since he completed his 20th full NHL season, and with his contract with the Stars ending, Modano has said the he plans to take some time before deciding  his future. He is also part of a group seeking ownership of the Stars, who are being sold by Thomas  Hicks’ financially challenged Hicks Sports Group.

The Stars missed the playoffs for the second season in a row, the first time that has happened since relocating from Minnesota 17 years ago.

Last summer, Mike Modano needed only a month to decide to come back for a 20th season, but this time there is no guaranteed contract for him.

This time around, he doesn’t have a contract for next season and has not spoken with general manager and former teammate Joe Nieuwendyk about a new one.

Mike Modano (nhl)

The number 1 overall draft pick by the Minnesota North Stars in 1988, Modano was the last player remaining on the Stars from when the team moved south to Dallas.

In 1,459 career games, Modano has 557 points and 802 assists for 1,359 points, all team records. He had 14 goals and 16 assists this season.

But at his age, Mike Modano is not expected to be Dallas’ primary scorer anymore. Brad Richards was seventh in the NHL with 91 points, and players like Loui Eriksson and Mike Ribeiro are capable of scoring as well.

Nadal once again owns the Monte Carlo Masters tournament

compiled from staff and wire reports

Rafael Nadal had a year to wait but it’s now history.

Nadal won his first tournament in nearly a year on Sunday, defeating Fernando Verdasco 6-0, 6-1 in an all-Spanish final at the Monte Carlo Masters in Monaco.

The second-seeded Nadal overpowered Verdasco with a stunning display of attacking clay-court tennis to earn his sixth straight victory at Monte Carlo, but his first title since the Rome Masters in May 2009.

Nadal was very much relieved to win again after losing consecutive Masters semifinals on hard courts at the BNP Paribas Open and the Sony Ericsson Open.

Nadal is the only player to win six consecutive titles at the same tournament since tennis turned professional in 1968, and the 23-year-old has tied to-ranked Roger Federer with 16 Masters titles, one behind Andre Agassi’s record.

Nadal’s victory tied him with Britain’s Reggie Doherty, who won the Monte Carlo event six times overall, between 1897-99 and 1902-04.

compiled from staff, wire and IRL reports

James Hinchcliffe (indycar)

James Hinchcliffe led from start to finish to capture his first Indy Lights Series title in 18 career races.

Hinchcliffe, who is a Toronto native, earned the pole Saturday and stayed in front of  Charlie Kimball and rookie J.K. Vernay to earn the win in his second Indy Lights season.

Hunter-Reay wins Long Beach IndyCar race; Power has gear mishap

compiled by staff, wire and IRL reports

Will Power was his usual self driving along as the pole sitter early in the race and tried to shift out of first gear to round a corner when the gear got stuck and he had to go to the pits. That mishap gave the lead to eventual winner Ryan Hunter-Reay and Justin Wilson room to take control of the race.

Ryan Hunter-Reay is the 2010 winner of the Grand Prix of Long Beach race. Hunter-Reay was the first American to win an IndyCar race at Long Beach since team owner Micheal  Andretti did in 2002.

Ryan Hunter-Reay (IRL)

Defending champion Dario Franchitti was never a factor, starting and finishing 12th.

Will Power’s consolation is that he still has the points lead headed into the oval portion of the IndyCar season, 42 points ahead of Helio Castroneves after finishing third at  Long Beach.

The hottest driver on the circuit, Power has yet to finish out of the top 5 this season, winning the opening two races in Brazil and Florida, finishing fourth at Alabama. The Australian also has a streak of three straight poles, one off the IRL record. The next two races are Kansas on May 1 and the Indianapolis 500 later in the Month.
