Highlights for Sunday (and beyond)


FedEx 400, Noon, FS1

At Dover International Speedway, Denny Hamlin has his first pole of the season, though he won the non-points All-Star Race as the polesitter two weeks ago. Hamlin's three Joe Gibbs Racing teammates all start in the top 10, with Matt Kenseth fourth, Carl Edwards eighth and Kyle Busch 10th.


New York at Seattle, 4 p.m., ESPN2

It's a big day for the MLS with two games featuring the four conference finalists from last season. The Sounders, who sit atop the Western Conference standings, are looking to post a fourth straight shutout for the first time in their history, while the Red Bulls had scored in every game until going goalless in their last two.

Los Angeles at New England, 6 p.m., FS1

The Galaxy and Revolution meet in a rematch of the 2014 MLS Cup. But this is not the same Los Angeles team that won a fifth league championship last fall, with Landon Donovan retired and several others, including Robbie Keane, out with injuries. New England is 0-13 in its last four games despite leading in all of them.


Detroit at L.A. Angels, 7:05 p.m., ESPN

David Price (4-1, 2.97 ERA) didn't allow a run in his last start for the Tigers and gave up five hits in seven innings in a 1-0 win against Oakland. Matt Shoemaker (3-4, 5.44) put up a similar line in his last outing for the Angels, allowing four hits and no runs in seven innings, but Los Angeles lost 4-0 to San Diego.


French Open Round of 16, 4 a.m. Monday, ESPN2

Jack Sock, the 22-year-old Lincoln native, has made his deepest singles run at a Grand Slam and is the last American left in the men's draw. His reward? A match with nine-time French Open champ Rafael Nadal. The exact time and order of the matches won't be set until Sunday, so set your DVR, stay up late or wake up early.
