CHICAGO (AP) — LeBron James came on strong down the stretch to finish with 25 points, Chris Bosh added 20 points and 19 rebounds, and the Miami Heat took a 2-1 series lead with a 104-94 victory over the Chicago Bulls in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Norris Cole scored 18, for the Heat, who face another road game Monday night in Game 4.

BOSTON (AP) __ Jon Lester pitched a one-hitter allowing only a Maicer Izturis (MY'-sur ihz-TUR'-ihs) two-out double in the sixth inning in the Boston Red Sox' 5-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. That ends a three-game losing streak for the Red Sox.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — There was a pitching gem at Busch Stadium too. Shelby Miller gave up a leadoff single to Eric Young Jr. and then retired 27 in a row for his first career complete game, pitching the St. Louis Cardinals to a 3-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies.

DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) — Kurt Busch ended up on top at Darlington Raceway a week after finishing upside-down at Talladega. Five days ago, Busch went airborne near the end of the Aaron's 499 and crash landed on Ryan Newman. On Friday, Busch sped around Darlington with a fast lap of 181.918 mph and will start from the pole Saturday night at Darlington.
