Wie Eyes First Ever Major Championship

Wie Eyes First Ever Major Championship

Tyler Lecka/Getty Images(PINEHURST, N.C.) — Michelle Wie entered Saturday with a three stroke lead at the U.S. Women’s Open. After salvaging a 2-over 72, she sits tied with Amy Yang for the 54-hole lead at Pinehurst No. 2.
“I’m just grateful for another opportunity,” said Wie, who at one point ballooned her lead to four strokes. “Tomorrow I’m going to play as hard as I can and hope for the best.”
Wie made consecutive birdies at the turn, reaching 6-under for the tournament, before her first double-bogey of the week on the tenth. After another bogey on 12, the 24-year-old settled down to make four crucial pars down the stretch and finish at 2-under for the tournament. This is the third time that Wie has held at least a share of the lead entering Sunday. The previous two came when she was 15 and 17-years old.
Meanwhile, Yang had an eventful round of her own, not making her first par until the eighth hole. Yang will be in the final pairing for the second time in three years, missing the outright lead by recording a bogey on the 18th hole. The two are four strokes ahead of a group of players which includes 53-year-old Julie Inkster. The Hall of Famer is competing in her 35th, and last, Women’s Open.

Vandy and Virginia to Meet in College World Series Final

Vandy and Virginia to Meet in College World Series Final

Frederick Breedon/Getty Images(OMAHA, Neb.) — They arrived in different fashions but Vanderbilt and Virginia reached the College World Series Finals on Saturday. Virginia defeated Ole Miss 4-1 in an elimination game while Vandy walked-off in 10 innings over Texas for their first trip to the finals.
The Cavaliers (52-14) are in the CWS for the third time in program history after a dominant pitching performance. Virginia allowed just two earned runs in 33 innings while limiting the Rebels to just six singles in the win. Robbie Coman drove in two runs with a hit in the fourth to give the Cavs a 2-1 lead before Branden Cogswell’s squeeze bunt drove in another. An RBI double from Joe McCarthy added the unneeded insurance run as three pitchers combined for the win. Josh Sborz tossed five innings of the rain-suspended game while Nick Howard earned his 20th save.
Vanderbilt (49-20) encountered a bit more drama in their 4-3 win over the Longhorns. After taking a 2-0 lead after three innings, Kasey Clemens knotted things up for Texas with a two-run single in the fourth. Rhett Wiseman broke the tie with a single in the sixth before Zane Gurwitz’s base hit in the home half of the inning. The score stayed that way through regulation play, forcing extra innings. Wiseman came up huge again in the top half of the tenth, robbing extra bases from C.J. Hinojosa, setting up the game-winner. With the bases loaded, Tyler Campbell hit a soft roller to short and beat the throw to first, sending the Commodores into their first ever finals.
While Vanderbilt will be looking for their first ever national championship in baseball, Virignia will be hoping to bring the Atlantic Coast Conference it’s first title in Omaha since 1955. The three-game series begins on Monday at TD Ameritrade Ballpark.

Messi’s Late Goal Lifts Argentina Into Round of 16

Messi’s Late Goal Lifts Argentina Into Round of 16

Jean Catuffe/Getty Images(BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil) — Lionel Messi was once again the hero for Argentina, scoring an injury-time winner to defeat Iran 1-0 on Saturday. Messi’s goal was his second of the tournament, pushing Argentina into the knockout stage.
Both goalkeepers played impressively well, each making multiple saves to keep the scoreless at 0-0. Argentina’s best chance came in the first 15 minutes when Fernando Gago fed a ball through to Gonzalo Higuain but Iranian keeper Alireza Haghighi came out from net to deny the opportunity. Haghighi made another athletic save on Sergio Aguera in the first have.
Looking for a stunning upset, Iran played tremendously for 90 minutes. Reza Ghoochannejhad had a pair of chances, both of which were denied by Sergio Romero. After missing a free kick wide of the net, Ghoochannejhad’s header was saved by Romero’s low dive to keep the game scoreless.
Messi finally broke through just moments into stoppage time. The Barcelona striker received the ball at the top left side of the box, where he made a quick move to the inside and curled a shot inside the far post for the win.

Klose’s Historic Goal Leads Germany to Draw with Ghana

Klose’s Historic Goal Leads Germany to Draw with Ghana

Martin Rose/Getty Images(FORTALEZA, Brazil) — Miroslav Klose’s goal in the 71st minute tied the game and tied former Brazilian striker Ronaldo’s record for most goals in World Cup history with 15, as Germany fights back to tie Ghana 2-2 Saturday, in Group G play.
Mario Gotze got the scoring started in the 51st minute when the German headed in a cross from teammate Thomas Muller. Ghana answered right back three minutes later when Andre Ayew headed one past Manuel Neuer to tie the game.
Ghana broke the tie in the 63rd minute when Asamoah Gyan smacked a ball into the far corner of the net. But the Germans then substituted in their trusty veteran Klose, who scored on a corner when he slid threw a throng of players and struck the ball past Ghana goalkeeper Fatawu Dauda to secure the tie.
The German tie now means the United States can clinch a spot in the Round of 16 with a win over Portugal Sunday.

Chad Johnson Makes CFL Debut

Chad Johnson Makes CFL Debut

Elsa/Getty Images(MONTREAL) — It wasn’t in the NFL and it wasn’t with his usual flash and flare, but Chad Johnson was back in professional football on Friday. The former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver made his debut for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League (CFL) in the final preseason game for the squad.
An 11-year veteran of the NFL, Johnson amassed over 11,000 receiving yards with both the Bengals and the New England Patriots. In his first real game action since 2011, Johnson caught one pass for 13 yards. The Alouettes fell to the Ottawa REDBLACKS, 26-10, in their final tune-up before the regular season begins.
“It felt good. Nervous, butterflies, it was cool,” said Johnson on his return to professional football. “I have a lot of work to do but it felt good.”
The outspoken wide out played 10 years for the Bengals, earning six Pro Bowl selections before signing with the Patriots in 2011, helping the team reach the Super Bowl. In 2012 he signed with the Miami Dolphins but was released following an arrest for domestic battery to which he pleaded no contest.
Montreal opens up the 2014 CFL regular season on June 28 when they take on Calgary.

Blue Jays Rally From 8-0 Deficit, Beat Reds 14-9

Blue Jays Rally From 8-0 Deficit, Beat Reds 14-9

Jamie Sabau/Getty Images(CINCINNATI, Ohio) — The Toronto Blue Jays trailed 8-0 after two innings on Friday night but Edwin Encarnacion led the charge as they rallied to beat Cincinnati 14-9 over the Reds. It was the second largest comeback in franchise history for Toronto (42-33) who snapped a three game losing streak.
Cincinnati (35-37) scored eight runs in the bottom of the second inning to take the large lead. Devin Morasco started things off with a two-run home run before Jay Bruce added a two-run shot of his own for the final scoring play of the frame. Eleven total batters came to the plate for the Reds who chased starter Liam Hendricks after an inning and two-thirds.
The Blue Jays began the comeback in the top of the third with Encarnacion’s first three-run shot of the night off Mat Latos. After Cincinnati added another run in the fifth, Toronto added two runs in the sixth and three in the seventh to trail 9-8 heading into the eighth. Dioner Navarro’s double in the eighth to score Encarnacion, sending the game into the ninth tied at 9-9.
Aroldis Chapman then came on for the Reds to attempt and keep it a tied game. However, Erik Kratz and Melkey Cabrera had RBI hits, putting Toronto ahead 11-9 before Encarnacion launched his second three-run blast of the night off Sam LeCure. In total, Encarnacion had a career high six RBI’s while the two teams combined to hit six homers.
It was the first time the Reds have given up an eight-run lead and lost since May 20, 2010 in a loss at Atlanta. Meanwhile, it was the second largest comeback for the Blue Jays behind a 10-run comeback against Boston in 1989.

Lucy Li, 11-Year-Old Phenom, Misses Cut at U.S. Women’s Open

Lucy Li, 11-Year-Old Phenom, Misses Cut at U.S. Women’s Open

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(PINHEHURST, N.C.) — The youngest qualifier in U.S. Women’s Open history failed to make the cut in her debut. Lucy Li, the 11-year-old phenom, shot an 8-over 78 on Friday, putting her at +16 for the tournament in her two days of competition.
Although she opened her round with a double-bogey, Li finished the outing with pars on three of the final four holes. Li also birdied the par-four 14th, calling it her favorite moment of the tournament.
“She was here for the experience and the opportunity to play with the best players in the world,” said Li’s caddie Bryan Bush. “She proved that she can.”
The Women’s Open is no stranger to a youth movement. Michelle Wie, the tournament leader heading into the weekend, was 13 at her first US Open in 2003. Lexi Thompson made her debut in 2007 at age 12, becoming the youngest qualifier at the tournament before Li.
Wie is currently four-under for the tournament, three strokes ahead of Thompson.

Swisher Slams Cleveland Past Angels in Extras

Swisher Slams Cleveland Past Angels in Extras

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(CLEVELAND, Ohio) — Albert Pujols hit a go-ahead, two-run single in the top of the tenth that put Los Angeles ahead 3-1. Nick Swisher answered with a walk-off grand slam in the bottom half of the inning to give Cleveland a 5-3 victory on Thursday afternoon.
“When I first hit it, I said, all right, that’s a double,” said Swisher. “The next thing you know, it went out. I flipped my bat. I was going crazy.”
The two-out hit was Swisher’s only one of the day, striking out each time in his previous three at-bats. It was also the second time that the Indians (37-36) came from behind in the game. With a runner on third in the second, Cleveland starter Justin Masterson delivered a wild pitch that allowed Howie Kendrick to score and give the Angels (38-33) a 1-0 advantage. 
Cleveland answered back in the third on a groundout from Michael Bourn in the third, the last run scored in the first nine innings. Both Masterson and Los Angeles starter, C.J. Wilson went seven innings before turning things over to the bullpen.
Pujols’ two-RBI hit came off reliever Scott Atchison with two outs, seemingly giving the Angels the victory. However, Bourn walked to lead off before Jason Kipnis doubled two batters later. After Carlos Santana walked to load the bases, Ernesto Frieri came on to try and finish off the game. Frieri induced a fly out from Daniel Murphy for the second out before Swisher’s slam gave the Indians a 5-3 win.

Uruguay Beats England on Suarez’s Late Goal

Uruguay Beats England on Suarez’s Late Goal

Matthias Hangst/Getty Images(SAO PAULO, Brazil) — He makes his living playing in England’s top tier of soccer. On Thursday, Luis Suarez all but eliminated England from World Cup play, scoring both goals in Uruguay’s 2-1 victory.
In his return from knee surgery, the striker continued where he left off in the English Premier League (EPL) by dominating opposing defenses. The first goal came in the 39th minute when Edinson Cavani chipped the ball across the box where Suarez headed it home for the opening tally. That followed a near goal from England’s Wayne Rooney off a free kick, but his header ricocheted off the crossbar.
As the second half progressed, England continued to search for an equalizing goal. It finally came in the 75th minute when Rooney finished a low cross from Glen Johnson, which slipped past keeper Fernando Muslera, for the tying strike. It was the first World Cup goal in the career of the Manchester United striker who was playing in his 10th career match.
The joy for England did not last long, however. Just 10 minutes later, Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerard was unable to play a long ball and it fell perfectly to his club-mate Suarez. After making one quick move to his left, the EPL’s leading goal scorer broke through again for the deciding goal.
To stay alive in the tournament, England must now defeat Costa Rica in their final group play match and hope that Italy wins both of its remaining games. They must also have a better goal differential than both Uruguay and Costa Rica, both of whom would be tied for the second spot in Group D.

David Blatt Offered Cavaliers Head Coaching Job

David Blatt Offered Cavaliers Head Coaching Job

Srdjan Stevanovic/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Sources close to the Cleveland Cavaliers indicate the team may have found their new head coach. According to multiple media reports, David Blatt was offered the head job on Thursday and the two sides are currently in contract talks.
A longtime European coach, Blatt led Russia to a bronze medal in the 2012 Summer Olympic games. He also was the head coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv, winning the Euroleague Championship this season. The 55-year-old has spent more than 20 seasons coaching in Europe for four different countries.
Blatt was the starting point guard at Princeton for legendary coach Pete Carril from 1977-1981 before having a 13-year playing career overseas. Blatt’s teams have been seen running a similar “Princeton-style” offense that he was taught in his collegiate career. If he accepts, Blatt would be the third Cavaliers head coach in as many seasons.

Yankees Sweep First Place Blue Jays

Yankees Sweep First Place Blue Jays

Mike Stobe/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — David Phelps turned in a quality start while Carlos Beltran drove in two runs as the Yankees swept Toronto in a three-game set on Thursday. It was the 16th consecutive win for New York (38-33) over the Blue Jays (41-33) at Yankee Stadium.
Phelps (3-4) picked up the win, tossing seven innings and allowing just two runs. The righty struck out seven in his outing but did give up a two-run homer to Melkey Cabrera in the third that tied the game at 2-2. New York quickly took the lead back when Beltran hit a sacrifice fly to left, scoring Ellsbury, before he added another RBI in the fifth with a ground rule double.
After Derek Jeter drove in a run with a ground out in the sixth, Yangervis Solarte worked a pinch-hit walk in the seventh that made it a 6-2 lead. Sean Kelley gave up a two-run blast in the top of the eighth to Edwin Encarnacion that closed the gap to two. Matt Thornton then allowed a base hit in the ninth before Adam Warren entered the game and picked up his second save of the year.
Drew Hutchinson (5-5) lasted just four and one-third innings, giving up four runs on six hits. The sweep tied New York with the Blue Jays in the loss column and moved them just a game and a half out of first in the American League East.

A’s Have Best Record in MLB After Rolling Past Rangers

A’s Have Best Record in MLB After Rolling Past Rangers

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) — For the first time since May 22, Sonny Gray allowed fewer than three runs, helping the Oakland Athletics top the Texas Rangers 4-2 Wednesday and grab the best record in baseball. Gray pitched seven innings allowing six hits, two runs, two walks while striking out seven.
“I don’t think there really is a difference other than I was able to make pitches,” Gray said. “That’s probably it. People sometimes forget that baseball is a pretty hard game and there’s going to be some rough patches that you’re going to go through.

Oakland (44-28) started its scoring in the third inning when John Jaso doubled to center off Rangers starter Nick Tepesch allowing Craig Gentry to score. Jaso crossed home plate just a few batters later when Josh Donaldson slapped a single to center.

The Rangers (35-37) tied the game in the fifth when Shin-Soo Choo hit a two-run single, but the A’s answered back in the bottom of the inning scoring twice to take the lead for good.

Sean Doolittle pitched a perfect ninth to earn his ninth save of the season.

Croatia Eliminates Cameroon from World Cup

Croatia Eliminates Cameroon from World Cup

Clive Brunskill/Getty Images(MANAUS, Brazil) — Cameroon midfielder Alex Song was ejected after getting a red card late in the first half, and Croatia capitalized scoring three of their four goals after the penalty en route to a 4-0 win over Cameroon in Group A play at the World Cup Wednesday.
Song was ejected in the 40th minute when he elbowed Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic. That gave Cameroon 10 men for the rest of the match. Mandzukic, who had been suspended from Croatia’s first game versus Brazil, capitalized on the penalty by scoring twice to help eliminate Cameroon from World Cup contention.

Ivica Olic and Ivan Perisic also scored for Croatia, who can advance out of the group stage with a win over Mexico on Monday.

Kershaw No-Hits Rockies

Kershaw No-Hits Rockies

Victor Decolongon/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Clayton Kershaw can add another feather to his cap: the 26-year-old Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander no-hit the Colorado Rockies Wednesday night, as the Dodgers blanked the Rockies 8-0.
Kershaw, who already is a two-time Cy Young Award winner, struck out a career-high 15 while walking none. He becomes the first pitcher ever to strikeout that many batters without allowing a walk.
The Dodgers’ ace almost had the perfect game. In the seventh inning shortstop Hanley Ramirez fielded a Corey Dickerson grounder and threw wide to first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, allowing Dickerson to get on base. The play was ruled a throwing error and was the only blemish in Kershaw’s 107 pitch masterpiece.
While Dickerson was the only man to get on base, he also ended the game when he struck out swinging sending the crowd at Dodger Stadium wild.
“To get to do it in front of this crowd with how excited they were, and how into it they were is pretty special,” Kershaw said.
The no-hitter is the second of the season for the Dodgers. Josh Beckett threw one in Philadelphia on May 25. It’s the first time since 1956 two Dodgers pitchers threw a no-hitter in the same season.
“I am so amazed,” Kershaw said. “Beckett told me he was going to teach me how to do that, so I have Josh to thank.”
Kershaw’s no-hitter is the 22nd in Dodgers history.

Ochoa Leads Mexico to Draw with Brazil

Ochoa Leads Mexico to Draw with Brazil

FABRICE COFFRINI/AFP/Getty Images(FORTALEZA, Brazil) — Brazil had many scoring opportunities but could not slip one past Mexican goal keeper Guillermo Ochoa, leading the two countries to a 0-0 draw at the World Cup Tuesday. Ochoa was remarkable in net, making six saves — many from point-blank range — tying the country’s record for most saves by a keeper in a World Cup match since 1966. Ochoa started his masterful performance in the 26th minute when he dove to the right side of the net just in time to stop a header from Brazilian star, Neymar. Ochoa continued to thwart Brazil’s offensive attacks the rest of the game, resulting in Mexico’s first point ever versus Brazil in a World Cup game. “In the end, a 0-0 mirrors what happened, it was a very hard-fought match,” Brazilian head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said. “The draw wasn’t a good result because a victory would have already allowed us to advance, but we need to be able to respect our opponent, which played very well.”
The game leaves both Mexico and Brazil with four points after two games in Group A play, with Brazil holding the goal differential tiebreaker.

Bronson Arroyo Placed on DL for First Time

Bronson Arroyo Placed on DL for First Time

Stephen Dunn/Getty Images(PHOENIX) —  The Arizona Diamondbacks placed starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo on the disabled list for the first time in his career on Monday.  
The 37-year-old starting pitcher was sent to the 15-day DL with right elbow tendonitis, ending Arroyo’s 369 consecutive-starts streak. 
The only player with a longer active starts streak is the Toronto Blue Jays’ Mark Buehrle (443).
“It’s really unfortunate when it’s a guy who has an unblemished record when it comes to posting up each and every time,” Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers said. “But it would have been hard to run him back out there again, going to war as he says, against AK-47s with his little .22. He still found a way to win, which was amazing.” 
Arroyo has pitched in 15 major league seasons. During that time, Arroyo pitched 2,364 2/3 innings, compiling a 145-131 record with a 4.53 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, 642 walks and 1,526 strikeouts. 
Outfielder Roger Kieschnick was recalled from Triple-A Reno to take Arroyo’s roster spot.
