MLB • David Price of the Tampa Bay Rays and knuckleballer R.A. Dickey of the New York Mets won baseball's Cy Young awards on Wednesday.

Price barely beat out 2011 winner Justin Verlander for the American League prize in one of the closest votes ever. Dickey was an easy choice for the NL honor in balloting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

The 38-year-old Dickey became the first knuckleball pitcher to win the Cy Young Award.

Runner-up two years ago in the Cy Young race, Price was the pick this time for the AL's top pitching prize. He received 14 of 28 first-place votes to edge Verlander, chosen first on 13 ballots.

• Free agent outfielder Torii Hunter has agreed to a $26 million, two-year deal with Detroit, giving the Tigers a capable corner outfielder.

FC Dallas CEO accused of abuse

Soccer • The CEO of Dallas' professional soccer team is taking an indefinite leave after being accused of beating and choking his wife at a hotel in New York City, the team said Wednesday.

Douglas Quinn, president of FC Dallas, asked to take the leave to "attend to personal matters," according to a team statement.

New York police allege that Quinn assaulted his wife, Elizabeth Quinn, after an argument in their Manhattan hotel room on Saturday. A criminal complaint said he repeatedly punched her in the face, put a pillow over her head and applied pressure so she couldn't breathe.
