A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Monday: ENGLAND West Bromwich Albion’s stunning 5-2 win at Chelsea last weekend will count for nothing if the next-to-last team in the Premier League doesn’t beat Southampton. Host West Brom is 11 points from safety with eight matches remaining and has a game in hand on 17th-place Newcastle. Southampton is looking to maintain momentum from a comeback win over Burnley ahead of an FA Cup semifinal against Leicester. Brighton, which is level on points with Newcastle, hosts an Everton side still thinking of a top-four finish. Everton has been stronger away from Goodison Park. The Toffees have taken 18 points from 15 home games and 29 from their 14 away fixtures. SPAIN Sevilla visits Celta Vigo aiming to take another step toward locking up a fourth-place finish and a spot in next season’s Champions League. Sevilla is in good form after beating Atlético Madrid last round, but the Andalusian side has lost in its last three visits to Celta on Spain’s northwestern coast. Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri is doubtful for the game due to a muscle issue. Celta is in 10th place. ITALY Manuel Locatelli, Sassuolo’s standout midfielder, is due to return for a visit to relegation-threatened Benevento. He has been held out of the last two matches for precautionary reasons following a series of positive COVID-19 cases on Italy’s national team. Sassuolo could also have back key goalscorer Domenico Berardi, who was injured while on international duty. Sassuolo coach Roberto De Zerbi will be facing his former club, the Serie B champion coached by former World Cup winner Filippo Inzaghi. GERMANY Bayer Leverkusen needs a winning run and a big dose of luck if it's to secure Champions League soccer for next season. Ahead of facing Hoffenheim, Leverkusen is 10 points off fourth-place Eintracht Frankfurt with one game in hand. The more immediate concern is guarding its Europa League spot from chasing Union Berlin and Borussia Mönchengladbach. Hoffenheim is 12th after a disappointing season and will be keen to extend its four-point cushion to the relegation playoff place. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Rougned Odor snapped a 10th-inning tie with his first hit as a Yankee, Gio Urshela homered and drove in three runs, and New York rallied Sunday to avoid a weekend sweep with an 8-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. Urshela hit a two-run homer in the third inning. His fourth hit of the day, a two-out single in the 10th off Collin McHugh (0-1), helped the Yankees put away the AL champions, who were on the verge of completing a three-game sweep before giving up a tying run in the eighth. Odor was in the lineup for the first time since being acquired in a trade from the Texas Rangers. Cleanly shaven after sporting a scruffy beard for years in Texas, he was 0 for 4 before singling to centre on a 3-2 pitch to break a 4-4 tie. Gary Sánchez followed with an RBI single before Urshela finished off the Rays, who allowed the fourth run of the inning to score on an error. Aroldis Chapman (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth, andAlbert Abreu got the final three outs. Mike Zunino and Randy Arozarena hit two-run homers and rookie right-hander Brent Honeywell Jr. sparkled in his major league debut by pitching two scoreless innings as an opener for the Rays, who clung to a 4-3 lead until Gleyber Torres tied it with an eighth-inning single off Ryan Thompson. Zunino and Arozarena both homered off starter Jordan Montgomery, who riled the Tampa Bay bench early in the game by hitting Rays designated hitter Austin Meadows with pitches twice. Home plate umpire Marty Foster issued a warning to both benches after Meadows was struck in the back in the first inning. The umpire crew huddled again when a high, inside pitch appeared to glance off Meadows’ left forearm, however Montgomery wasn’t ejected. Honeywell, once Tampa Bay's best pitching prospect, had not pitched in a regular season or post-season game since the Triple-A National Championship Game in September 2017. Since then, he’s undergone surgical procedures on his right elbow four times, beginning with Tommy John surgery in February 2018. The 26-year-old with a backward-breaking screwball breezed through a nine-pitch first inning, then struck out Giancarlo Stanton and Torres before getting Odor to pop to second base to end a 21-pitch outing. Michael Wacha inherited a 2-0 lead but didn’t keep it long. The right-hander yielded a two-run homer to Urshela while allowing the first five batters he faced to reach, and the Yankees went ahead 3-2 when Aaron Hicks grounded into a double play with the bases loaded. Arozarena’s second homer in two days gave the Rays a 4-3 edge that Wacha, who allowed three runs and three hits over four innings, turned over to the bullpen. The Yankees loaded the bases with one out in the seventh against lefty Cody Reed only to squander the opportunity when Thompson came on and got DJ LeMahieu to ground into an inning-ending double play. The Rays weren’t as fortunate in the eighth when Thompson walked Stanton and Aaron Judge before giving up the tying single to Torres. Montgomery allowed four runs and five hits over five-plus innings. He walked two and struck out four. TRAINER’S ROOM Yankees: Infielder Luke Voit (left knee surgery) is rehabbing in New York and making progress, manager Aaron Boone said. He’s due to see a doctor Monday and not expected to start any baseball activities for another week. Rays: Outfielder Manuel Margot (groin/quad) returned to the lineup after missing two games and went 1 for 4. UP NEXT Yankees: Right-hander Gerrit Cole (1-0, 1.46 ERA) will start the opener of a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays in nearby Dunedin, Florida, on an extra day’s rest Monday. The Blue Jays are playing home games at their spring training site because of coronavirus pandemic restrictions in Canada. Rays: Begin a four-game series against the Texas Rangers, with right-hander Tyler Glasnow (0-0, 0.75) facing right-hander Dane Dunning (1-0, 1.80) on Monday . ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Fred Goodall, The Associated Press

"I'm actively serving this country and this is how you're going to treat me?" Video released by U.S. Army lieutenant Caron Nazario's attorney shows the moment the soldier in uniform was pepper sprayed in the face with his hands raised, after a traffic stop turned violent in Virginia last December. The suit, filed by Nazario in early April in the U.S. District Court of Norfolk against Windsor policemen Joe Gutierrez and Daniel Crocker, alleges violations to his constitutional rights, and includes assault, illegal search and illegal detention.Nazario's attorney Jonathan Arthur, said his client, who is Black and Latino, was quote "not resisting in any way shape or form." "The lieutenant sent me his cell phone footage first. And it was horrifying. But I kept hoping and thinking, 'that's only one angle, maybe there's something I'm missing. Maybe the dashcam footage, or the bodycam footage shows something different'. And it didn't. It just got worse from there." Nazario was driving his new SUV with a temporary paper tag displayed on the back window on December 5th, when he was told to pull over in Windsor, a small Virginia town southeast of Richmond.When a police cruiser signaled for him to stop, the lawsuit says Nazario put on his blinkers, slowed down and looked for a lighted place to stop... eventually stopping at a gas station less than two minutes later.The suit says an officer radioed to dispatch that a driver without a tag was "eluding police" and it was considered a "high risk stop" and another officer responded to the scene.Nazario told police that he was afraid to get out of the vehicle. The suit says Nazario had his hands up, offered no resistance, but was pepper sprayed and violently knocked to the ground and detained. Ultimately Nazario was released without charges.

A number of top executives and corporate leaders gathered online this weekend to discuss what to do in response to changes to some state voting laws, according to multiple news reports. The Washington Post reported that more than 100 leaders, including executives from major airlines, retailers and manufacturers — plus at least one NFL owner — talked about potential ways to show they opposed the legislation, which has already been signed into law in Georgia and is being considered elsewhere. That includes halting donations to politicians who support the bills and even delaying investments in states that pass the restrictive measures, according to Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, a Yale management professor and one of the organizers. The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed sources who attended, said that Kenneth Chenault, the former chief executive of American Express Co. , and Kenneth Frazier, CEO of Merck & Co., urged dozens of leaders to collectively call for greater voting access. Chenault and Frazier warned businesses against dropping the issue and asked CEOs to sign a statement opposing what they view as discriminatory legislation on voting. The new statement could come early this week and would build on one that 72 Black executives signed last month in the wake of changes to Georgia’s voting laws, according to the newspaper's report. A number of companies and their leaders have spoken up on the issue in recent weeks. While Republican lawmakers — such as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell — have derided such action, many activists and others say big business hasn't gone far enough. More than 350 different voting bills are under consideration in dozens of states, according to a tally from the Brennan Center for Justice, a public-policy think-tank . The Wall Street Journal reported that some executives on the call described some bills as either racist or restrictive, and several participants described their efforts as critical to democracy, rather than partisan. While many companies indicated their support of a statement or further action, some remain reticent to speak out on a politically charged issue. One executive from a Fortune 100 consumer-products company told the Wall Street Journal that while board members, employees and vendors are pressing leaders to speak out, doing so could put a bull’s-eye on the company. “It’s really a no-win situation from a corporate standpoint,” the executive said.

PHILADELPHIA — Rasmus Asplund and Jeff Skinner scored 25 seconds apart late in the third period to lead the Buffalo Sabres to a 5-3 comeback victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday. Arttu Ruotsalainen, Sam Reinhart and Casey Mittelstadt also scored for the Sabres, who improved their NHL-worst record to 10-25-6. Buffalo appeared headed for another defeat before a late rally. Skinner tied the game at 3 with 3:03 remaining. Flyers goalie Carter Hart couldn’t corral Victor Olofsson’s shot from long range, and the puck went off Skinner’s skate and over the goal line as he crashed the net. The goal was upheld after an officials’ review. Asplund scored the go-ahead goal just seconds later when he scored on a rebound with a backhand from close range. Middlestadt’s empty-netter capped the scoring. Linus Ullmark made 40 saves for Buffalo. Oskar Lindblom, Shayne Gostisbehere and Joel Farabee scored for the Flyers, whose playoff chances took a hit. Philadelphia entered four points behind Boston for the final playoff spot in the East Division. The Flyers skated to a 3-2 home victory over the Bruins on Saturday. Gostisbehere put Philadelphia ahead 3-2 at 3:47 of the third period. Farabee won a battle in the corner, found a wide-open Gostisbehere in the slot and the Flyers defenceman fired a wrist shot between Ullmark’s pads. It was the eighth goal of the season and third in four games for Gostisbehere, who wasn’t claimed by any NHL team when the Flyers placed him on waivers last month. Hart made 26 saves and dropped to 8-11-5 to stretch his winless streak to seven straight. His most recent victory was March 18. Lindblom and Farabee staked Philadelphia to a 2-0 lead after one period. Lindblom opened the scoring with 8:24 left in the period when Gostisbehere’s pass went off Lindblom’s stick and into the pads of Ullmark. As Ullmark was trying to corral the puck, he accidentally knocked it into the goal with his left pad. Farabee notched his team-best 15th goal 2 1/2 minutes later on the power play when he followed his own shot from close range and tapped it over the goal line behind a sprawling Ullmark. Buffalo evened the game at 2 apiece with a pair of goals 46 seconds apart early in the second period. Reinhart netted his 14th after a beautiful setup by Skinner, who won a faceoff and then passed across to a wide-open Reinhart for the easy goal. Ruotsalainen, playing in his second NHL game, notched his first career goal on a one-timer from the circle that soared past Hart’s left shoulder. Ullmark kept the game tied with a stellar stick save with 3 1/2 minutes left in the second on Sean Couturier's chance. Ivan Provorov’s shot bounced hard off the back boards to the other side of the goal, where Couturier looked to have an easy tap-in before Ullmark lunged and extended his goalie stick with his right hand to prevent the goal. The Flyers finished their eight-game season series against the Sabres with a 5-3 advantage. The Sabres also beat Philadelphia 6-1 on March 31 in Buffalo. That Sabres victory ended their 18-game losing streak. OUT OF ACTION In advance of Monday’s trade deadline, Buffalo’s Taylor Hall sat for the third straight game. The 2018 Hart Trophy winner signed a one-year, $8 million deal with the Sabres in the off-season but has struggled to just two goals in 37 games. Philadelphia forward Michael Raffl also was a scratch, possibly in preparation for a trade. The veteran has eight points (three goals, five assists) in 34 games this season. BACK IN ACTION Buffalo centre Dylan Cozens returned to the lineup after missing the previous six with an upper body injury. He had an assist on Ruotsalainen’s tally. UP NEXT Sabres: At Boston on Tuesday. Flyers: At Washington on Tuesday. ___ More AP NHL coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Aaron Bracy, The Associated Press
