Sports Briefs: Manchester City wins Premier League title
SUNDERLAND, England — The players left the field as if shellshocked. The fans looked at each other in disbelief, standing with hands on heads in bewildered silence.
This was supposed to be a great celebration for Manchester United. Instead, the Premier League title slipped from its grasp in the final minutes of the season.
United had seemed set to successfully defend its title after its 1-0 win at Sunderland, with Wayne Roomey scoring on a header in the 20th minute.
Manchester City, meanwhile, was trailing 2-1 to Queens Park Rangers entering injury time. But City showed remarkable grit, scoring twice to win 3-2 and seize the title from its crosstown rival.
The top two were even on points going into the final round, and City used its better goal difference to clinch its first title since 1968.
• Brad Davis scored the goal to finish off a picture-perfect day at BBVA Compass Stadium. Davis scored in the 67th minute, and the Houston Dynamo beat D.C. United 1-0 on Saturday in the first game at the $95 million venue. The Dynamo (3-3-2) outshot D.C. (5-4-3) by a 10-1 margin.

Kurt Busch dustup mars milestone win for Hendrick
DARLINGTON, S.C. — Those Busch brothers can’t seem to avoid the spotlight at Darlington Raceway.
A year after Kyle Busch tangled with Kevin Harvick in the pits following Regan Smith’s first Sprint Cup win, the crew for Kurt Busch scrummed with Ryan Newman’s group while Rick Hendrick and Jimmie Johnson celebrated the car owner’s 200th career victory at the Southern 500 on Saturday night.
Kurt Busch’s temper rose after he slid six laps from the end. Newman was caught up in the incident as well. Busch sped out of the pits near Newman’s crew. After the race, Busch hit the back of Newman’s car and further angered rival crew members. Moments later, both sides were packed together and a series official was knocked backward on Busch’s car hood.
