BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Pinch-hitter Eduardo Estrada's three-run homer gave Minnesota the lead in the eighth inning, and the third-seeded Gophers overcame a six-run deficit to beat Indiana 9-8 in a Big Ten Tournament elimination game Friday night. The sixth-seeded Hoosiers had gone up 6-0 in the sixth. Minnesota advances to play Iowa on Saturday.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Team Penske won the pit stop challenge at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Friday with Will Power behind the wheel. Power's crew edged James Hinchcliffe of Schmidt Peterson Motorsports in the best-of-three final. It was Penske's third consecutive victory in the pit stop challenge and 10th in the last 13 years.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Matheus Leist led every lap after starting on the pole to win the Indy Lights race during Carb Day festivities leading up to the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500. The 18-year-old Brazilian was only under pressure once in the Freedom 100 on Friday, when Aaron Telitz tried to go around him with seven laps to go. Telitz couldn't pull off the pass.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Three-time champion Helio Castroneves turned the fastest lap on Carb Day during the final practice for the Indy 500, while more engine trouble for Honda left teams leery of what could happen on race day. Castroneves posted a lap of 227.377 miles per hour Friday. That gave the Chevrolet-powered teams that struggled mightily during qualifying last weekend reason for hope.
