HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) — Kyle Busch locked up a berth in NASCAR's Chase for the championship with his fourth victory of the year, taking the checkered flag at Atlanta Motor Speedway. He emerged with the lead after a rapid-fire series of caution flags near the end, and he held off hard-charging Joey Logano to win by 0.740 seconds. Martin Truex Jr. took third despite a broken right wrist.

NORTON, Mass. (AP) — Sergio Garcia remains the leader through three rounds of the PGA's Deutsche (DOY'-cheh) Bank Championship near Boston. Garcia is 19-under following a 65 that puts him two strokes ahead of Henrik Stenson. Graham DeLaet and Steve Stricker are three strokes back and one ahead of PGA champion Jason Dufner and Robert Castro.

NEW YORK (AP) — Top seed Serena Williams has advanced to the U.S. Open quarterfinals by posting a 6-4, 6-1 win over Sloane Stephens. Sunday's other fourth-round winners were Carla Suarez Navarr, Li Na and Ekaterina Makarova, who ousted third seed Agnieszka Radwanska (ag-NAYS'-kah rahd-WAHN'-skah). Winners on the men's side include top seed Novak Djokovic (JOH'-koh-vihch) third seed Andy Murray, No. 5 Tomas Berdych and unseeded Lleyton Hewitt.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Teddy Bridgewater had a tremendous season debut in leading ninth-ranked Louisville to a lopsided 49-7 pounding of Ohio. Bridgewater was 23 of 28 for 355 yards and five touchdowns while helping the Cardinals outgain the Bobcats 615 yards to 273. Damian Copeland and Kai De La Cruz each caught two touchdown passes, and former Auburn star Michael Dyer ripped off a 46-yard scoring run in his Louisville debut.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Rob Gronkowski is practicing again with the New England Patriots, participating in his first full-pads workout since undergoing back surgery in June. He also had three operations this year on the left forearm he broke last season. Coach Bill Belichick hasn't said when he expects Gronkowski to be ready to play in a game.
