LONG BEACH, Calif. Dan Girardi Jersey . - Tempers flared all around the streets of Long Beach, where drivers declared friendships over after a surprisingly physical race. Simon Pagenaud refused to accept a post-race apology from Will Power, and Justin Wilson was furious with Scott Dixon. James Hinchcliffe tried to be diplomatic but failed to hide his displeasure with teammate Ryan Hunter-Reay. The one team smiling at the end of Sundays race? Ed Carpenter Racing, which got an unexpected victory from Mike Conway. Conway, hired this year when team owner and oval specialist Carpenter decided to get out of the car on road and street courses, started 17th and overcame an early broken wing to win the Toyota Grand Prix for the second time in his career. The British driver was chasing Dixon over the final few laps, then got the lead when Dixon stopped for fuel two laps from the finish. "I didnt know whether he had the fuel to finish or not," Conway said. "The guys were telling me he was saving fuel and they werent sure that he could make it, but at the same time, you dont want to rely on that. I was kind of trying to make things happen and maybe get by him. But when I saw him pull in I was like, OK, the guys are right and just have to bring it home. "Second would have been good, but this is awesome." The race was shaping up to be a Hunter-Reay rout until he triggered a seven-car accident 24 laps from the finish. Hunter-Reay started from the pole and led 51 laps, and had Andretti Autosport teammate Hinchcliffe right behind him when the race took a bizarre turn. Josef Newgarden had raced off pit road in a successful bid to get back on the track in front of Hunter-Reay and Hinchcliffe, who had swept the front row in qualifying for Andretti. But on cold tires, Newgarden wasnt going to be able to hold off Hunter-Reay for long. Only Hunter-Reay decided not to wait and tried to pass Newgarden as they entered a tight Turn 4. The two cars collided, Newgarden was sent into the wall and Hunter-Reay bounced into Castroneves path. Hinchcliffe ran into the back of Newgarden — Will Power and Conway successfully squeezed through the wreckage — but three more cars were collected as they all ran into the crashed cars long after the accident began. Newgarden was polite when he returned to his pit stand. "I was on cold tires, its very hard to control the car, I knew Hunter-Reay was on hot, and at some point he was probably going to get me," Newgarden said. "But I didnt expect anyone to come up on the inside of four. Theres so little room there, you normally cant make a pass, even if something like that is going on ... the next thing I knew I was in the wall and I was just getting plowed into by everyone. "That shouldnt happen up front. It really shouldnt. You shouldnt have incidents like that when you are running up front." Team owner Sarah Fisher was composed when asked about the incident on television, but let her true feelings be known on Twitter shortly after: "It was our race to win and we got robbed by immaturity. Period," she posted. Michael Andretti seemed shell-shocked at two of his cars being wrecked, "you need to be a little more patient," he said, and Hinchcliffe didnt mince words for his teammate. "At the end of the day, patience is a virtue and someone wasnt very virtuous today. It was a rookie move," said Hinchcliffe, who suffered a sprained left thumb and will need to be re-examined before hes cleared to drive again. Hunter-Reay didnt exactly accept responsibility. "I went for it. I could have waited a little bit later, maybe thats my fault," he said. "Its down to me to make the pass, I guess, Im not sure. A lot of people say its my fault. I made the decision at that split second when he had some wheel spin to go for it, thats the type of driver I am. I go for it. "You dont know how down I am. Just very, very disappointed. Ill look at it again, but a racing driver, when hes in the moment and he sees a chance to go for it, I went for it because I want to win the race." The accident opened the door for Dixon to score his first career win at Long Beach, until he stopped for fuel as a precaution. "The last thing I wanted to do was run out of gas in front of the whole field and cause a big accident," Dixon said. He had to mend fences with Wilson, who was enraged over contact with Dixon "that is so deliberate and blatant," and angry IndyCar did not penalize Dixon. Pagenaud also was furious with Power, refusing to accept his apology, and angry that IndyCar did not penalize Power for contact between the two. "I think we had a car to win and he pretty much ruined our race, our chance," said Pagenaud, who did not accept an apology from Power. "We were friends until now. We wont be going on vacation together, I guess." Power insisted he thought Pagenaud had an issue with his car. "I honestly thought he had a problem because he went back really slowly and so I went up his inside and then realized he was just going to turn and try to back out. I got him. My bad," Power said. "I feel bad. I dont like to be raced like that and Im surprised I didnt get a penalty. But I honestly thought he had a flat tire or something because he was really slow and I didnt understand why." Pagenaud, who rallied to finish fifth, dismissed Powers claim. "Racing, green flag, and I slowed down? Good for him," Pagenaud said. Power finished second — his fourth consecutive race dating to last season that hes finished either first or second. Rookie Carlos Munoz finished third and Juan Pablo Montoya was fourth for his best showing — in a test, practice or qualifying session — in his return after seven seasons in NASCAR. Montoya climbed to fourth early in the race, but a penalty for pitting when pit lane was closed dropped him to 20th and he had to drive his way back. "I could have been a little more aggressive at the end, but I really wanted to make sure we didnt get in any trouble and got a decent finish," Montoya said.

Woods said Friday that his charity event, which attracts a world-class field even without being part of any tour, will move in December 2014 to Isleworth, the course where he honed his professional game from 1996 until moving away to south Florida two years ago. http://www.lightninghockeystore.us/Braydon-Coburn-Jersey/ . -- C.J. Cron hit an RBI single on the first pitch he saw in the major leagues, doubled his second time up and hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the sixth inning to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 5-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night.BOSTON -- World Series MVP David Ortiz and Boston Red Sox teammate Shane Victorino had their beards shaved for charity Monday to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombings in April. The "shave offs" occurred at Gillettes world headquarters. The Boston company donated $100,000 to the One Fund, which is assisting victims and their families of the bombings on April 15. Three people were killed and over 260 injured near the finish line that day. Ortiz, fresh off his third World Series title with the Red Sox, joked that its a perfect look for his off-season. "Im going down south -- some place warm," he said. "I feel fresh. Ive got to keep it real. Its not that cold down there." Sitting in one of two barbers chairs to Ortizs right, Victorino appeared a bit shocked when he looked into a hand-held mirror and realized his beard and goatee were completely gone. "Im a World Series champion and I look like Im 12-years old," he said. Ortiz had his most of his beard shaved off, leaving only a goatee. "Hes a three-time champ and Im a two-time champ, and hes a little more tenured in the city than I am," Victorino said. "Its different look for me and something Im definitely not accustomed to." But he did find another reason to enjoy his fresh look. "My kids will be excited," he said. "I dont know if theyre going to recognize me when I walk in the door. My daughter was tugging on it last night and said, When are you going to shave it? I didnt want to let the secret out. She was still sleeping when I left this morning." Ortiz couldnt resiist teasing his now fresh-faced teammate. Matthew Spencer Jersey. . "He looks like hes in fifth grade. You going back to school?" Big Papi said. "Mine will grow very fast. I dont think Ill have any problems letting it grow. I dont know about this guy." Victorino said hes hoping to grow a beard back by spring training. "It was a battle. We fought to get that beard," Victorino said. Outfielder Jonny Gomes and first baseman Mike Napoli encouraged teammates during spring training to grow beards in spring training, even teasing players who talked about shaving. "Mike Nap said, You touch that one more time and were going to have to need a new DH," Ortiz recalled. Napoli and Gomes had the biggest, bushiest beards on the club. "It was a goal to come in and play hard and finish the season like we did for all the people that were struggling from the marathon, all the family members, the whole New England area that struggled with this and the whole country that struggled with this," Ortiz said. Victorino and Ortiz were joined by Fenway Park bullpen and Boston police officer Steve Horgan and fan, Michael Grant, from Leicester, Mass. Grant was selected from Gillettes Facebook and Twitter accounts. Horgan, stationed in the Red Sox bullpen, became an instant celebrity after he was photographed with his arms in the air celebrating Ortizs grand slam in Game 2 of the AL championship series as Detroit right fielder Torii Hunter flipped over the short fence with his legs straight upward. "I started it a week before the playoffs," Horgan said of his full beard.
