SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The Chicago Bears rallied for a 28-20 win over San Francisco Sunday night but their injury list keeps getting longer. Five key defenders were hurt in the game: Cornerbacks Sherrick McManis and Charles Tillman, defensive end Trevor Scott, safety Chris Conte (KAHN'-tee) and defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff. Tillman reinjured the triceps muscle that sidelined him for half of last season.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Chicago White Sox begin a nine-game road trip in Kansas City Monday night. John Danks goes for his 10th victory of the season in the series opener against the Royals, who have a one-game lead over Seattle for the second AL wild card.

JOLIET, Ill. (AP) - Brad Keselowski's (kez-uh-LOW'-skeez) NASCAR win at Chicagoland Speedway on Sunday automatically advances him into the second round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. He used a three-wide pass of Kyle Larson and Kevin Harvick to take the lead with 15 laps remaining in the race and pulled away after a late caution flag.
