CHICAGO (AP) - Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Mark Trumbo will be sidelined for an extended period because of a stress fracture in his left foot.

CHICAGO (AP) - Fittingly, the Chicago Cubs marked Wrigley Field's 100th birthday with a loss - a dramatic, error-filled one, at that. One out from victory, the Cubs allowed the Arizona Diamondbacks to rally for five runs in the ninth inning in a 7-5 loss yesterday. After an error by shortstop Starlin Castro, Martin Prado hit a two-run single off Pedro Strop (0-2).
MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Michael Phelps is making a comeback after nearly two years out of the pool for the simplest of reasons: he missed the sport that has been his entire life.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Anthony LeBlanc lived out a dream by becoming the owner of the Phoenix Coyotes. All that was missing was a trip to the playoffs. On the ice, Phoenix came up just short, missing the playoffs by two points thanks to a seven-game losing streak late in the season. LeBlanc said he expects some changes on the roster, but doesn't believe there needs to be an overhaul since the Coyotes were so close.
