FORT WORTH, Texas -- Austin Dillon and Kevin Harvick have long tried to move on from 2013, when Harvick insulted the grandsons of his then-team owner,?Richard Childress.But when Harvick turned Dillon on Lap 263 Sunday night at Texas Motor Speedway, the anger came through once again, and Dillon insinuated he wont forget it over the next two weeks as Harvick vies for the Sprint Cup title.He didnt like it that the silver spoon kid was outrunning him tonight, Dillon said.Harvick joined Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014. In October 2013, after a battle with Dillons brother, Ty, in a truck race at Martinsville, Harvick said he was leaving RCR because the Dillon brothers have got no respect for what they do in this sport and theyve had everything fed to them with a spoon.Known for his fiery temper, Harvick has for the most part praised Austin Dillon since then. Harvick apologized for Sundays accident and said it was unintentional.All in all, there was no intent there, said Harvick after his sixth-place finish at Texas. I like racing with Austin. I like everything that they do. There was no reason [to hit him]. I was running seventh [or] sixth. He slid up and got loose and I hit the back of him.Thats not the way Dillon saw it.Youve got to hold a guy down, but he sucked down on my door and got me tight [when beside me], Dillon said. That is the reason I slid up in front of him, and then he didnt lift, he just turned me.There are two more weeks left [for payback].Harvick is 18 points behind the current Chase cutoff going into the final race of the semifinal round of the Chase. After next week, four of the eight drivers still alive in the Chase will be eliminated -- meaning Harvick faces a near must-win situation at Phoenix, a track where he has won six of the last eight races. He cant afford to have enemies.I just want to apologize to the 3 [Dillons car], Harvick said. He came up there, and when he slid up in front of me, he got loose. When he checked up, I hit him again. That was not anything I wanted to see. Allen Iverson Jersey . They were putting most of their energy into a record-setting offensive display. Alex English Jersey .

DETROIT -- Daniel Norris recently changed his delivery and the results give him hope for a strong finish to a mostly disappointing season.The Detroit Tigers second-year left-hander tossed a season-high 6 1/3 innings in his last start on Thursday and notched his second victory of the year. Norris recorded a season-high 12 outs on ground balls and didnt walk anybody in an 8-5 victory over Minnesota.Norris, who will try to build off that effort when he faces the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday, credits pitching coach Rich Dubee for his improvement.Dubee and I have been working on extending through the ball and finishing my delivery, rather than recoiling and cutting off, he said. In doing that, its helping me get lower in the zone. That obviously leads to ground ball outs. Its just a matter of attacking guys early and making them get themselves out.Injuries have derailed Norris a good portion of the season, most recently a right oblique strain. He feels hes rounding into form for the teams homestretch as it tries to stay in the playoff hunt.Im definitely where I want to be, he said. Its a matter of going out there and pitching my game and getting on a good roll. I know when I do that, I can be as good as anybody and help this team win. Thats what I really look foward to -- feeling that confidence out there and trusting my stuff.Detroit began a stretch of playing 26 of 29 games against Central Division opponents. The Tigers won the opener against the White Sox 4-3 and remained 4 1/2 games behind Cleveland, which won 1-0 over Minnesota in extra innings on Monday.Were at a point we still kind of control our destiny, Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. It may come to a point where we need someone elses help but right nnow, weve just got to win games.ddddddddddddThe Tigers may be without centerfielder Cameron Maybin for a while. Maybin aggravated a thumb injury and left Mondays game early. X-rays were negative but hell undergo an MRI on Tuesday.The White Sox also began a long stretch within the division -- 21 consecutive games. Chicago has perked up lately, winning six of its last eight games prior to Mondays loss. That mini-surge has given the White Sox at least faint hope of reentering the postseason picture.Weve been playing good baseball lately, Chicago manager Robin Ventura said. Weve scored some runs and weve had some great starting pitching. When you get that, you have a chance. Offensively, if we keep that up, theres a shot in there to make a run, especially when youre playing within your division a lot going into the last month.Ventura was relieved that leadoff hitter Adam Eaton was healthy enough to return to the lineup on Monday. Eaton, who left Sundays game against Seattle with a bruised right forearm, went 0-for-4 with a walk.The White Sox will try to bounce back from Mondays defeat, when setup reliever Nate Jones gave up a go-ahead, two-run homer to Jarrod Saltalamacchia.Nates been as consistent as anybody, Ventura said. Its a tough one, especially when hes out there and hes got (good) stuff. Saltys gotten us a couple of times lately. That ones a tough one because you feel like youve grinded your way through it.Right-hander Anthony Ranaudo will make his fourth start for the White Sox on Tuesday. Hes 0-1 with a 7.88 ERA while allowing five home runs since being acquired from Texas. ' ' '
