INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Paul George followed his triple-double by scoring a playoff career-high 27 points to lead Indiana past Atlanta 113-98 Wednesday night. The Pacers lead the best-of-seven first-round series 2-0 and have won four straight home games over the Hawks.

DENVER (AP) — Wilin Rosario scored from second on Yorvit Torrealba's single to left and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Atlanta Braves 6-5 in 12 innings Wednesday. Michael Cuddyer and Josh Rutledge homered for the Rockies, who ended a three-game skid behind one-hit pitching by the bullpen over the last six innings.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Denny Hamlin hasn't been cleared to race at his home track in Richmond as he had hoped. Hamlin sustained a compression fracture of a vertebra in his lower back in a last-lap accident at California on March 24. Doctors said he'd miss at least five races, but Hamlin hoped to return early to race at Richmond, where he's a two-time winner.

UNDATED (AP) — NASCAR's two fastest tracks are re-enforcing crossover gates in the wake of the Feb. 23 accident at Daytona International Speedway that injured nearly 30 spectators. Daytona and Talladega Superspeedway announced Wednesday that the high-banked tracks are installing additional cables at the crossover gates, which allow fans to move between the grandstands and the infield before and after races.
