LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Rickie Fowler first began working with Butch Harmon last year at the British Open, not knowing whether it would take two months or two years to see some results. The turnaround was quicker than he imagined.

Despite a rugged start to the season, Fowler has really stood out in the majors. He is the only player with top-5 finishes in each of them this year.

"Butch has been a big influence this year ... with what we've done with the golf swing to make it more efficient and more repetitive and a little less dependent on timing," Fowler said.

That wasn't the only change he made this year.

CINCINNATI — Mat Latos pitched shutout ball into the eighth inning and chipped in with a hit as the Cincinnati Reds opened a 7-game homestand with an 8-3 win over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night.

Zack Cozart hit a 3-run homer off the left-field foul pole and Kristopher Negron added a 2-run shot as the Reds won for the third time in four games.

Latos (4-3), making his 10th start since opening the season on the disabled list and being activated on June 14, allowed just one runner past second base before Yan Gomes led off Cleveland's 3-run eighth with his 16th homer.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Tony Stewart was exactly where he wanted to be when he marked the anniversary of the devastating injury that cost him the second half of last year's NASCAR season.

He was trackside in Iowa at the Knoxville Nationals.

The 3-time Cup champion has not once wavered in his commitment to sprint car racing despite the crash in Iowa last August that led to a broken right leg. He marked the anniversary Tuesday night with a post on his Twitter account, noting his life changed one year ago: "Thank you to everyone that worked so hard to get me back to where I'm at today. It's your life, live it!"
