NEW YORK (AP) - A.J. Pollock hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks snapped a three-game skid with a 3-2 victory over the New York Mets on Monday night. J.D. Martinez had an RBI single and left fielder David Peralta threw out the potential go-ahead run at the plate for the Diamondbacks, who began the day with a 2 1/2-game lead over Milwaukee for the second NL wild card.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - USA Cycling has hired longtime Team Australia coach Gary Sutton to oversee its endurance program, which won a world championship in team pursuit and two silver medals at the Rio Olympics. Sutton had spent most of the past decade working with the Australian team, where he ushered several athletes to world championships and Olympic medals. He was an elite cyclist in his own right, competing in the 1976 and 1980 Summer Games and winning a world title in the points race.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Petra Kvitova's final tuneup for the U.S. Open ended with a 6-2, 6-1 loss to Shuai Zhang of China in the first round of the Connecticut Open on Monday night. Kvitova, a two-time Wimbledon champion and a three-time champion in New Haven, is just 4-4 on hard courts this season.

WACO, Texas (AP) - A woman who reported that she'd been sexually assaulted filed a lawsuit Monday against Baylor University, alleging questions she faced from the university shifted blame away from her attacker toward her. The lawsuit filed in a Waco federal court on Monday alleges Baylor's response to the attack violated federal Title IX laws against gender discrimination. That was even though university officials said new policies had been implemented before the attack in response to a sexual violence scandal that embroiled the Baylor football program.
