CINCINNATI — The Reds were unable to score after they put a runner on third with no outs. And for the first time in 61 years, they ended up getting blanked on opening day.

Yadier Molina broke a seventh-inning tie with a home run and made a pair of slick defensive plays on Monday, leading the defending National League champion St. Louis Cardinals to a 1-0 victory.

The Reds were shut out in their season opener for the first time since 1953, ending the second-longest streak in major-league history. The Phillies went 62 years without being blanked in an opener from 1911-72.

MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Kurt Busch couldn’t be more delighted with his move to Stewart-Haas Racing.

“I ran a lot of my early part of my career as an individual and I didn’t respect my team, my team owners,” Busch continued, adding that working with co-owner Tony Stewart is helping him learn a better way.

NEW YORK — Shabazz Napier owed UConn.

He could have transferred when academic sanctions barred the Huskies from the NCAA tournament his junior season. But the guard wanted to pay back the school for the joy of a national title his freshman year, for his struggles as a sophomore.

Napier sure did that Sunday, carrying UConn back to the Final Four in front of thousands of roaring Huskies fans at Madison Square Garden. He scored 17 of his 25 points in the second half in a 60-54 upset of fourth-seeded Michigan State.
