NHL STANLEY CUP
VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS COME BACK TO BEAT FLORIDA PANTHERS IN GAME 1 OF STANLEY CUP FINAL
LAS VEGAS (AP) Back in the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in five years and trailing the Florida Panthers less than 10 minutes into Game 1, the Vegas Golden Knights sent a very clear message.
“We were ready,” Jonathan Marchessault said.
Ready and relentless. Vegas rallied from an early deficit, got the go-ahead goal from Zach Whitecloud with just over 13 minutes left and arguably the best save of the playoffs from Adin Hill and beat Florida 5-2 Saturday night to take the lead in the best-of-seven series.
“We kept our composure, and it was good,” said Marchessault, one of six original Knights players left from the start of the franchise in 2017 who scored the tying goal in the first period. “We just wanted to play the right way and be disciplined, and tonight we were able to be the better team.”
Whitecloud put Vegas ahead, a crucial penalty kill followed and captain Mark Stone scored an insurance goal that was reviewed for a high stick and confirmed. Reilly Smith sealed it with an empty-netter to make the score look more lopsided than the game.
The combination of that offense and Hill’s 33 saves put Vegas up after a feisty opener between Sun Belt teams who wasted little time getting acquainted with big hits during play and plenty of post-whistle pushing and shoving.
“It’s exactly what we expected,” said Vegas defenseman Shea Theodore, who scored his first goal of the playoffs and ended a 27-game drought dating to March 7. “That’s how they wanted to play. We were just trying not to play into it.”
That stuff is just beginning. Game 2 is Monday in Las Vegas.
Before the Panthers even get a chance to respond, they ratcheted up the physical play late after falling behind by two. A handful of penalties resulting from a fracas with 4:24 remaining left the Florida bench well short.
The outcome was determined long before that.
After falling behind on a short-handed goal by Eric Staal that sucked the life out of the crowd of 18,432, the Golden Knights rallied for their ninth comeback win this playoffs. Marchessault – known since arriving in Las Vegas for scoring big goals – answered before the end of the first period.
Early in the second, Hill made a desperation stick save to rob Nick Cousins of what would have been a sure goal. The save was reminiscent of the one Washington’s Braden Holtby made against Vegas – in the same crease – five years ago.
“That’s an unreal save – it’s a game-changer,” coach Bruce Cassidy said. “You need those saves at key moments.”
Giving up a tying goal to Anthony Duclair with 10.2 seconds left in the second did not slow the Golden Knights’ momentum much. Whitecloud’s goal, with two-time Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky screened and unable to see, fired up fans once again.
Bobrovsky, in the final for the first time, downplayed any reason for concern after stopping 29 of 34 shots and losing for just the second time in 12 games this postseason.
“I played a good game,” Bobrovsky said. “I played a solid game. They created some good chances other than goals. They had lots of good scoring chances, and that was fun.”
Part of the fun came when play was stopped.
Less than 10 minutes in, Hill was none too happy about Nick Cousins crashing into his crease and gave the agitating Panthers winger a jab that incited a handful of scrums. During the second period, Matthew Tkachuk let Vegas’ Nic Hague know he wasn’t thrilled about a hit in the corner on Cousins and a collision with Brandon Montour after the whistle.
“If guys are going to come in my crease and try to push me around, I’m going to stand my own ground,” Hill said. “I’m not going to do anything too crazy or get too wild, but, yeah, I’ve got to stand up for myself.”
Florida coach Paul Maurice, back in the final for the first time since 2001, displayed a similarly calm demeanor as he did all the way back in the first round, when his team fell behind 1-0 then 3-1 to NHL-best Boston before winning in seven.
“It’s going to be tight,” Maurice said. “Everybody breathe.”
The Golden Knights are in the final for the second time in six years of existence, five years after making it in their inaugural season. Vegas won the opener in 2018 and lost the series to Washington in five games.
The Panthers are back playing for the Cup for the first time since 1996. Florida got swept by Colorado in that final 27 years ago, 18 months before Tkachuk, the team’s leading scorer this playoffs, was born.
It’s the 66th different matchup of teams in the Cup final in NHL history and the 46th since the expansion era began in 1967-68. This is the first time since Washington-Vegas and just the third time since the turn of the century in which the final features two teams who have never won the league’s championship.
MALONE WARNS AGAINST COMPLACENCY: NUGGETS ‘HAVEN’T DONE A DAMN THING’
Michael Malone cautioned his Denver Nuggets against premature celebrations with his side up 1-0 on the Miami Heat in the Finals.
“I told our players today, don’t read the paper,” Malone said Saturday, according to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN. “Don’t listen to the folks on the radio and TV saying that this series is over and that we’ve done something because we haven’t done a damn thing.”
Denver trounced Miami in Thursday’s series opener, storming ahead by as many as 24 en route to a 104-93 home victory. The Heat only held two one-point leads in the opening minutes.
Star center Nikola Jokic finished with a 27-point triple-double in his Finals debut. Four other Nuggets scored in double digits, including Jamal Murray, who had 26 points, 10 assists, and six rebounds.
Malone’s side swept the Los Angeles Lakers in the West finals and waited a week for Miami to see off the Boston Celtics, who forced a Game 7 after trailing the series 3-0. The Heat, who won 44 games in the regular season, are just the second No. 8 seed to reach the Finals and are up against the 53-win Nuggets.
Despite needing to get into the playoffs through the play-in tournament, the Heat eliminated the NBA’s top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks, the New York Knicks, and the Celtics to reach the Finals for the second time in four seasons. Nuggets forward Aaron Gordon, who faced Miami often during his time with the Orlando Magic, warned his teammates to not underestimate their opponents ahead of Game 2 on Sunday in Denver.
“You just can’t be complacent with this team,” Gordon said. “You can’t be lackadaisical. … This team has no quit. They will continue to fight through the entirety of the game. You’ve got to understand that about this team. You can’t take your foot off the gas with these guys.”
NBA FINALS: HEAT BIG UNDERDOGS ENTERING GAME 2 IN DENVER
The Miami Heat entered the playoffs as the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference but are in an unfamiliar position ahead of Game 2 of the NBA Finals — down 1-0.
Despite starting every series in this year’s playoffs on the road, the Heat managed to win the first game in each of their first three series. That certainly wasn’t the case in Game 1 on Thursday, when the Denver Nuggets won Game 1 of the finals in convincing fashion, 104-93.
The Heat will attempt to even the series in Game 2 on Sunday in Denver, and they will again be heavy underdogs.
Denver is an 8.5-point favorite at BetMGM, where the Nuggets have been backed by 55 percent of the spread-line bets and 59 percent of the money. However, Miami’s +300 moneyline has been a popular bet, with the public backing the Heat with 72 and 60 percent of the action, respectively.
WHAT IT MEANS
Miami has lost four of its past five games overall and is facing a deficit for the first time in these playoffs.
“That was one of my last messages to the group before our game,” Denver coach Michael Malone said after his team improved to 9-0 at home in the playoffs on Thursday.
“I reminded our group, if they didn’t know, that Miami went into Milwaukee (in the first round) and won Game 1. They went into the Garden in New York City (in the second round) and won Game 1. They won Game 1 up in Boston (in the Eastern Conference finals). So, we did not want them coming in here taking control of the series on our court.”
Nuggets star Nikola Jokic was the most popular prop bet ahead of Game 1 and went on to reward the public’s confidence in him with his ninth triple-double of the playoffs. That includes six in his past seven games after collecting 27 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds in Game 1.
“The most important thing is to win a game,” Jokic said. “I’m trying to win a game in any possible way.”
Denver made 16 of its 20 free-throw attempts in Game 1, which was significantly better than Miami’s all-too-brief performance at the line.
The Heat went to the charity stripe on just two occasions to set an NBA postseason record for fewest free-throw attempts in a game.
“Things have to be done with a lot more intention and a lot more pace, a lot more detail,” Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said. “We are an aggressive, attacking team, and so if we are not getting those kind of opportunities at the rim or at the free throw line, we have to find different ways to be able to do it.”
THEY SAID IT
Heat star Jimmy Butler had only 13 points in Game 1 to go along with seven rebounds and seven assists. He did not make it to the foul line a single time.
“You’ve got to attack and attack everybody, not just one individual. I have to do a better job of creating the help, one, two guys, and getting to my shooter, otherwise finishing at the rim, making shots,” he said.
“But we missed a lot, and we’ll be better in Game 2. At the end of the day, that’s what it is, and we’ll take this and we’ll learn from it.”
REPORT: BILLS, OLIVER AGREE TO 4-YEAR, $68M EXTENSION
The Buffalo Bills and defensive tackle Ed Oliver agreed to a four-year extension worth $68 million, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The reported contract includes $45 million guaranteed. Oliver had one year remaining on his previous deal.
Drafted ninth overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, Oliver has been a constant contributor on Buffalo’s defensive line since entering the league. He started 53 games and recorded 14.5 sacks and 30 tackles for a loss over his four seasons.
Oliver put up 2.5 sacks, one forced fumble, and nine tackles for a loss last season. His 14 quarterback hits in 2022 tied a career high.
BEARS’ STADIUM PLAN AT RISK AFTER PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENT
CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Bears say they are considering abandoning their plan to build an enclosed stadium and entertainment complex on a suburban tract of land they recently purchased in favor of constructing one elsewhere in the region.
Citing a property assessment they said is too high, the Bears announced in a statement Friday that building on a 326-acre site in Arlington Heights, Illinois, is “no longer our singular focus.”
“It is our responsibility to listen to other municipalities in Chicagoland about potential locations that can deliver on this transformational opportunity for our fans, our club and the State of Illinois,” the team said.
The Bears announced in February they purchased the site of the shuttered Arlington International Racecourse from Churchill Downs Inc. for $197.2 million.
“The stadium-based project remains broadly popular in Arlington Heights, Chicagoland and the state,” the team said. “However, the property’s original assessment at five times the 2021 tax value, and the recent settlement with Churchill Downs for 2022 being three times higher, fails to reflect the property is not operational and not commercially viable in its current state.”
The Bears plan to pay for their stadium, but want taxpayer dollars to cover infrastructure costs, such as roads and sewers. The team said demolition work on the racetrack will continue.
The Bears envision restaurants, retail and more on the property some 30 miles northwest of Soldier Field — all for about $5 billion, with some taxpayer help.
The city of Chicago proposed last summer enclosing Soldier Field and increasing its capacity from a league-low 61,500. But the Bears repeatedly insisted the only possibilities they were considering were for the Arlington Heights site.
Soldier Field on Chicago’s lakefront has been the Bears’ home since 1971. The team played at Wrigley Field from 1921 to 1970, and if a new stadium is constructed, the franchise would have its name on the mortgage for the first time since arriving in Chicago.
Economic analysts have said building a Bears entertainment district would create more than 48,000 jobs and generate $9.4 billion for the local economy.
MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL
MLB ROUNDUP: PADRES’ STARS SHINE IN SHUTOUT OF CUBS
Yu Darvish gave up two infield singles over seven scoreless innings and Fernando Tatis Jr. drove in four runs with a pair of home runs as the San Diego Padres defeated the visiting Chicago Cubs 6-0 on Saturday night to even their four-game series at a win apiece.
The Padres scored two runs in the second on a sacrifice fly by Brandon Dixon and a two-out, run-scoring double by Trent Grisham before Tatis drove Drew Smyly’s first pitch of the third over the center field wall for his 10th homer of the season.
Tatis followed singles by Ha-Seong Kim and Grisham with a two-out, three-run homer off Cubs reliever Jeremiah Estrada in the eighth. It was the 10th multi-home run game of Tatis’ career. Darvish issued one walk with nine strikeouts. He threw 115 pitches (75 strikes) while evening his record at 4-4.
Smyly (5-3) gave up three runs on seven hits and three walks with four strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings to take the loss. The bottom four hitters in the Cubs’ lineup were a combined 0-for-12 with nine strikeouts.
Braves 5, Diamondbacks 2
Visiting Atlanta scored in four consecutive innings to snap Arizona’s six-game winning streak with a victory in Phoenix.
Braves right-hander Spencer Strider, who leads the majors in strikeouts, added another seven to his total, while Ronald Acuna Jr. paced Atlanta’s offense by going 2-for-5 with a homer and a double. Eddie Rosario and Marcel Ozuna each had two hits and an RBI.
Strider (6-2), who now has 113 strikeouts in 12 starts, worked six-plus innings, allowing three hits, two runs and four walks. Diamondbacks starter Ryne Nelson (2-3) took the loss, allowing three runs on six hits in 4 2/3 innings. Evan Longoria hit a solo shot for Arizona.
Yankees 6, Dodgers 3
Jake Bauers hit a pair of two-run home runs and Aaron Judge added a solo shot to go along with a key defensive play in the eighth inning as New York beat host Los Angeles.
Oswaldo Cabrera also hit a home run for the Yankees, while Gerritt Cole (7-0) gave up one run on four hits over six innings to stay unbeaten and knot the three-game series. Cole left after 80 pitches because of cramping.
Bauers hit both of his home runs against Dodgers rookie starter Michael Grove, going deep in the second and fourth innings to give him five on the season. Judge made a running catch in the eighth inning on a drive by J.D. Martinez with a runner on base, breaking through the bullpen gate in right field in the process.
Red Sox 8, Rays 5 (Game 1)
Justin Turner’s bases-clearing double highlighted a six-run sixth inning to help Boston move past visiting Tampa Bay in the front end of a day-night doubleheader.
Alex Verdugo went 3-for-5 and drove in two runs while Turner, Masataka Yoshida and Pablo Reyes all had two hits apiece for Boston. Corey Kluber (3-6) pitched a scoreless sixth inning to earn the win in relief.
Tampa Bay’s Yandy Diaz and Wander Franco (3-for-5) each hit two doubles while going a combined 5-for-10. Diaz (2-for-5) and Harold Ramirez (2-for-3) had two RBI apiece.
Rays 4, Red Sox 2 (Game 2)
Harold Ramirez hit a two-run double in the top of the ninth inning to finish a 3-for-5 performance and lift Tampa Bay past host Boston in the nightcap of a doubleheader.
Francisco Mejia added two hits and a run to help the Rays split the twin bill and the first half of the four-game series.
With Red Sox closer Kenley Jansen (1-3) on for the second straight game, Mejia and Yandy Diaz opened the ninth with back-to-back singles before advancing into scoring position on Brandon Lowe’s deep flyout into the right-field corner. Ramirez’s line-drive double to right plated both runners, giving Tampa a lead it wouldn’t relinquish.
Rangers 16, Mariners 6
Marcus Semien homered and had four hits and three RBIs and Texas racked up 19 hits while producing a 16-6 victory over Seattle in Arlington, Texas.
Corey Seager had three hits, three runs and three RBIs and Nathaniel Lowe had three hits and three RBIs for the Rangers. Lowe, Mitch Garver and Leody Taveras also homered for Texas. Semien extended his MLB-high hitting streak to 22 games for the Rangers. Texas starter Andrew Heaney allowed three earned runs in three innings, and exited after facing four batters in the fourth.
In his major league debut, Seattle’s Bryson Woo (0-1) struggled, and was replaced after giving up six runs on seven hits in two innings.
Blue Jays 2, Mets 1
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. ripped a go-ahead RBI double with two outs in the ninth to lift visiting Toronto to a victory over New York.
David Robertson (2-1) allowed George Springer’s one-out single in the top of the ninth. Springer stole second and scored when Guerrero grounded a double past third base. Toronto right-hander Jose Berrios allowed one run, four hits and three walks in six innings. He struck out six.
Mets right-hander Tylor Megill gave up one run, five hits and five walks while striking out five in 5 1/3 innings.
Pirates 4, Cardinals 3
Connor Joe hit a two-run double and Carlos Santana had an RBI single during a three-run sixth that helped lift Pittsburgh to a victory over visiting St. Louis.
Ke’Bryan Hayes added a home run for the Pirates, who have taken the first two games of the three-game set. Pittsburgh starter Luis L. Ortiz gave up one run in two innings before his outing was cut short by a rain delay. Dauri Moreta (3-1), the fifth of eight Pittsburgh pitchers, went 1 2/3 scoreless innings to earn the win.
Nolan Gorman and Willson Contreras each homered for the Cardinals, who have lost four of their past five games. St. Louis starter Jordan Montgomery (2-7) allowed four runs (one earned) and four hits in 5 2/3 innings, with five strikeouts and one walk.
White Sox 2, Tigers 1 (10 innings)
Yoan Moncada scored on a wild pitch with two out and the bases loaded in the 10th inning as host Chicago pulled out a win over Detroit.
All three of the game’s runs came home on wild pitches. Andrew Benintendi had two hits and scored a run for the White Sox. Reynaldo Lopez (1-4) pitched a scoreless 10th to collect the victory.
Zach McKinstry tripled and scored the lone run for the Tigers, who were blanked 3-0 in the series opener on Friday.
Phillies 4, Nationals 2
J.T. Realmuto hit a tie-breaking home run in the sixth inning and Philadelphia snapped a five-game losing streak by beating host Washington.
Realmuto also doubled and scored two runs, while the Phillies used seven pitchers to even the three-game series. Matt Strahm worked two scoreless innings in a starting role on a bullpen day for the Phillies. Dylan Covey (1-1) was the winning pitcher despite giving up the two Washington runs.
The Nationals managed seven hits – all singles – and drew just two walks. Washington left-hander MacKenzie Gore (3-4) was charged with three runs on nine hits across six innings.
Astros 9, Angels 6
Alex Bregman belted his fifth career grand slam while Cristian Javier delivered a strong pitching performance as Houston defeated visiting Los Angeles.
Javier (7-1) limited the Angels to one run on six hits with no walks and five strikeouts over six innings. Bregman added a career-high-tying four walks to his eighth homer. Shohei Ohtani finished 4-for-5 and a homer shy of the cycle for Los Angeles.
After applying pressure on the Houston bullpen with two runs in the eighth inning and another scoring threat in the ninth on Friday, the Angels did so again with a four-run seventh. However, Los Angeles could not complete the comeback.
Brewers 10, Reds 8
Blake Perkins hit a grand slam for his first major league home run as Milwaukee slugged its way past host Cincinnati.
The Brewers’ offense came alive early, scoring nine runs in the first three innings, including five in the third. Perkins, batting in the No. 9 spot, finished 2-for-4 with five RBIs.
Milwaukee did all of its damage off of Reds starter Graham Ashcraft (3-4), who have up 10 runs on nine hits in four innings with four walks and two strikeouts.
Guardians 4, Twins 2
Will Brennan blasted a go-ahead two-run homer in the seventh inning and drove in three runs overall to help visiting Cleveland beat Minnesota.
Guardians rookie left-hander Logan Allen (3-2) allowed two runs and seven hits in six innings to win his second straight start. He struck out four and walked two. Emmanuel Clase pitched the ninth for his MLB-leading 18th save.
Brennan’s home run came against Twins right-hander Sonny Gray, who came in with the second-lowest ERA in the MLB (1.94) and had not allowed a home run in his first 11 starts this season. Gray (4-1) surrendered three runs and a season-high 10 hits in 6 2/3 innings. Jorge Polanco homered for Minnesota, which had won three straight overall.
Giants 4, Orioles 0
Alex Cobb continued his career-long mastery of his former employer, Wilmer Flores collected a double, two singles and two RBIs, and San Francisco squared its three-game series against visiting Baltimore.
The Giants used a three-run third inning to grab a lead they never relinquished en route to just the second win in their last six games. San Francisco got five consecutive hits off Baltimore starter Kyle Bradish (2-2) in the uprising, with a J.D. Davis single opening the scoring and a Flores two-run single making it 3-0.
That was more than enough support for Cobb (5-2), who took a three-hit shutout into the eighth with a four-run lead before serving up a one-out single to Aaron Hicks and a double by Ryan O’Hearn. Bradish hung around for just three of the Giants’ four runs, pulled after allowing seven hits in four innings.
Marlins 12, Athletics 1
Luis Arraez went 5-for-5 with five RBIs to lead host Miami to a win over Oakland.
Arraez, who leads the majors with a .390 batting average, had an RBI single in the second, a three-run double in the third and an RBI double in the fifth as Miami won for the sixth time in eight games. His other two hits were a double and a single. Joey Wendle also had a strong showing for the Marlins, going 3-for-4 with three runs and two doubles.
Rookie right-hander Eury Perez (3-1) continued to impress, striking out five in five scoreless innings while lowering his ERA to 2.25. He allowed four hits and one walk. Oakland rookie right-hander Luis Medina (0-5) is still looking for his first major league win after allowing six runs on six hits and four walks in two innings. He fanned two.
Rockies 6, Royals 4
Elehuris Montero had a two-run triple to highlight a five-run first inning, lifting visiting Colorado to a victory over Kansas City.
Ryan McMahon, Randal Grichuk and Charlie Blackmon each had an RBI single and scored a run for the Rockies, who have won two in a row following a four-game skid. The offense was more than enough for Matt Carasiti (1-0), who picked up his second win in the major leagues and first since Aug. 19, 2016.
Nick Pratto homered to lead off the first inning and Maikel Garcia, Drew Waters and Salvador Perez each had an RBI single for the Royals, who have lost 10 of their last 13 games.
COLLEGE SOFTBALL WORLD SERIES
FLORIDA STATE FENDS OFF WASHINGTON TO REACH SEMIS OF WCWS
Florida State came up with timely hitting and a big defensive play to defeat Washington 3-1 on Saturday night and advance to the semifinals of the Women’s College World Series at Oklahoma City.
No. 3 Florida State plays Monday night against the winner of No. 6 Oklahoma State and No. 4 Tennessee on Sunday night.
No. 7 Washington is still alive in the double-elimination tournament and faces Pac-12 rival Stanford on Sunday afternoon with a semifinal berth on the line.
Devyn Flaherty doubled to deep center to lead off the bottom of the second inning for Florida State. Mack Leonard then reached safely on third baseman SilentRain Espinoza’s error. After the first out, Katie Dack singled to load the bases.
Josie Muffley delivered a single to left to drive in Flaherty and move Leonard to third base. Leonard scored on Kaley Mudge’s sacrifice fly to center for a 2-0 Seminoles lead. After Ruby Meylan walked Jahni Kerr to again load the bases, Kalei Harding struck out to end the inning.
Washington cut the deficit in half in the sixth inning when Madison Huskey led off with a double and Kelley Lynch hit a one-out RBI single.
Lindsay Lopez was on the mound for the Huskies when the Seminoles added the game’s final run. Flaherty opened with a single and Leonard sacrifice bunted to Lopez, whose throwing error to first base allowed Flaherty to score for a 3-1 difference.
Washington threatened in the seventh inning against Kathryn Sandercock (28-3), who allowed singles to Sydney Stewart and Baylee Klingler. With Megan Vandergrift running for Stewart and Brooklyn Carter running for Klingler, Sandercock coaxed a flyout, then Huskey smacked a line drive which shortstop Muffley leapt high to snare, then doubled-up Vandergrift off second base for the final out of the game.
MCILROY TIED FOR LEAD AT MEMORIAL BY MAKING FEWEST MISTAKES
DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) Rory McIlroy felt like he was hanging on for dear life Saturday at the Memorial. He had to scramble for bogey to start the back nine. He went five holes without hitting a green. And all the while, he never really lost ground.
When he had to scramble for par on the fourth-easiest hole at Muirfield Village, the par-5 11th, he said he told caddie Harry Diamond he only wanted to try to break 70.
McIlroy wound up with a 2-under 70. That was enough to take him four shots behind at the start of the day to a share of the lead going into Sunday.
“That’s what happens when conditions are like this,” McIlroy said. “You just have to hang on.”
It helped that Hideki Matsuyama went from leading to dropping off the leaderboard in a span of six holes. And that Patrick Cantlay went into the water and over the green on his way to a triple bogey on the front nine. David Lipsky bogeyed his last two holes.
What remained amid a few rumbles of thunder – but no weather delays – was an opportunity for just about everyone who had a tee time Sunday.
Thirteen players were separated by two shots. Nine more were only three shots out of the lead.
Lipsky’s two closing bogeys gave him a 72, while Si Woo Kim overcome two double bogeys for a 71. They joined McIlroy at 6-under 210.
It’s the highest 54-hole lead since 1990, when the weather was so atrocious that the final round was canceled and Greg Norman won at even-par 216.
McIlroy, doing his best to keep in play on the fast fairways that have been baked all week by a hot sun, picked up three birdies over the last seven holes, just not on the holes he imagined.
He chipped in for birdie on the dangerous par-3 12th. He reached the par-5 15th in two after a 344-yard drive. His approach to a back pin on the 17th rolled past the cup to 7 feet and set up one of only eight birdies on that hole for the day.
Just as sweet was the 18th, where his putt from the back of the green to a front pin ran nearly 10 feet by the cup and he holed that for par. McIlroy had several par putts from between 5 and 8 feet, all of them important on a day like this.
“I was really happy with how I scored out there, and how I just sort of hung in there for most of the day,” McIlroy said.
He will be in the final group with Kim, who one-putted his last seven holes, saving par from a front bunker on the 18th.
All this was made possible largely by Matsuyama, a former Memorial winner, who birdied his first two holes and looked to be on his way. And then it quickly fell apart – a bad chip on the par-3 eighth, a three-putt on the ninth and his big blunder on the par-3 12th – tee shot into the water, then over the green from the drop area and a triple bogey.
Cantlay, a two-time Memorial winner, had only one big mistake. He went for the green from the rough on the par-4 sixth and came up short and into the water, then went long into the rough and didn’t get up-and-down, making a triple bogey.
Otherwise, Cantlay made 14 pars, a pair of birdies and a bogey. He and Matsuyama, despite a big number on each of their cards, were two shots behind going into Sunday.
The big move came from Keegan Bradley, who made the cut on the number. He teed off at 8:15 a.m. and finished as the leaders were just starting to warm up. Bradley made nine birdies in his round of 65, and now he’s only two shots behind.
Viktor Hovland (69) and Mark Hubbard (72) were in the large group one shot behind at 5-under 211. Hubbard bogeyed his last three holes for the second time this week. He didn’t let it bother him on Thursday, and he felt the same way Saturday.
“I’m not happy with my finish again, but at the same time, I made three pretty good bogey putts,” Hubbard said.
His strategy on a day like this: “Just try and make a lot of birdies on the par 5s and not make doubles on the hard holes.”
Justin Suh, the 36-hole leader, didn’t stay there for long. He started bogey-bogey, then found the water on No. 3 for a double bogey. He didn’t make his first birdie – his only one – until the 14th hole. Suh had a 77.
He was still only three shots behind, along with Jordan Spieth (72).
Of the 22 players separated by three shots, nine have never won on the PGA Tour. One of those was Lipsky, who doubts he’ll get too wrapped up in looking at the leaderboard.
“It’s too hard to focus on anything else but your game,” he said.
SPECTACULAR DEBUT: ROSE ZHANG SHOOTS 66 TO TAKE LEAD INTO MIZUHO AMERICAS OPEN FINALE
JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) Much was expected of Rose Zhang when she turned professional last week, and she is already delivering.
The two-time NCAA champion moved into position to win in her pro debut, shooting a 6-under 66 on Saturday to take a two-shot lead into the final round of the Mizuho Americans Open.
“I’ve been in this position before, but I haven’t been in this position as a professional, since this is my first week, so I’m really just learning everything that I could,” Zhang said. “Tomorrow, I’ll be just trying to figure out what it feels like to be in the final group, navigate my way through, and I’m sure by the end of the day I’ll be able to, you know, just build my character more.”
The former Stanford star had six birdies in a bogey-free round on a raw, overcast day at Liberty National in jumping to the top of the leaderboard. It’s nothing new for the 20-year-old who won 12 of 20 events in her two years in college, with many viewing it as a sign of things to come.
Event 1 is certainly shaping up that way a day to go, and it could have been better. Zhang settled for a tap-in birdie at the driveable 16th hole after hitting her tee shot within about 5 feet.
Cheyenne Knight, who was tied with Minjee Lee for the halfway lead at 7 under, was tied for second with Atthaya Thitikul of Thailand and Aditi Ashok of India, who both shot 68s. Knight had a 69, making a bogey at No, 17 and missing a 10-footer for birdie on the final hole.
Lee (72) was 7 under in fifth place, a shot ahead of Jennifer Kupcho (69) rookie Hae Ran Ryu (66) and Eun-Hee Ji (70).
Stephanie Kyriacoiu of Australia had the best round of the day, shooting a 65 that included an eagle, six birdies and an early bogey. The 22-year-old was at 5 under along with top-ranked Jin Young Ko (73) and fellow South Korean player Sei Young Kim (70).
They will all have to catch Zhang, who was the No. 1 women’s amatuer for 141 weeks. She also is on a roll, having won the Augusta National Women’s Amateur this year and her second straight NCAA title last month.
This has been a hectic week for Zhang. Not only did she turn pro, but she has shown a lot of composure on the course and off with the sheer volume of interview requests.
“I still think I’m human so I do feel little small butterflies here and there,” the Irvine, California, resident said, “I’ve been pretty comfortable when I’ve been on the golf course. I’ve been able to tap into my zone and I’ve just been trying to think about how this is the sport that I’ve been playing for the last ten or so years. I’m just doing what I need to do and going back to what my body knows.”
Seven women have won their first start as a pro on the LPGA Tour since 1992, with Hinako Shibuno of Japan the last in the 2019 Women’s British Open.
Knight also has been in her zone looking for her second win on tour and first since 2019. She has been in the top 10 after 36 holes in her last four events.
“I’m excited, but, I mean, yeah, Minjee I think shot 8 under yesterday. Marina (Alex) did, too. It’s out there,” Knight said. “I’m excited to attack, and, yeah, just give myself some chances tomorrow and hopefully they drop.”
Ashok has had only one bogey in three rounds in her search for her first win on this tour.
“I think this golf course especially makes you think a lot,” said Ashok, who has had two top three finishes in recent weeks. “If you get the right angles and if you play it smart I think it’s easier to not drop shots.”
No. 3 ranked Lydia Ko, who was a shot behind the lead entering the round, and No. 8 ranked Brooke Henderson, who was two shots off the pace, finished at 1-under. Ko shot 77, and Henderson 76.
COLE CUSTER GRABS 1ST XFINITY SERIES WIN OF THE SEASON IN PORTLAND
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Cole Custer pulled into the lead after a late caution for his first NASCAR Xfinity Series win this season on the road course at Portland International Raceway.
Custer earned his 11th overall victory on the series in the No. 00 Haas Automation Ford, besting Justin Allgaier by .142 seconds on Saturday. Custer pulled ahead on the overtime restart after a caution for debris on the track with three laps to go.
“Man, I’m just so happy. I’ve never won a road course race before,” Custer said. “I’ve been so close so many times and it’s just awesome to win this thing.”
Allgaier led for most of the third stage after winning last week’s rain-delayed race in Charlotte in the No. 7 Brandt Chevrolet. Allgaier has four straight top-three finishes.
On the restart, Parker Kligerman tried to pass Allgaier and they made contact, along with Sheldon Creed, in the first turn. Custer, who was running in fifth, took advantage and snuck by – then held off hard-charging Allgaier at the finish.
“It’s awesome to get this trophy and get that out of the way,” Custer said. “I’m pumped for the rest of the year. We’ve got fast cars.”
Sam Mayer, Josh Berry and Austin Hill rounded out the top five.
Saturday’s 75-lap race on the 12-turn, 1.97-mile road course north of downtown Portland was run under a clear sky in temperatures hovering near 80.
It was the second year the Xfinity Series – a step below the NASCAR Cup – has come to Portland. Last year A.J. Allmendinger won in frequent downpours, crossing the finish line 2.879 seconds in front of Myatt Snider.
Now full-time on NASCAR’s Cup series, Allmendinger did not return to defend his title on the 1.97-mile course north of downtown Portland.
Creed won the pole in the No. 2 Whelen Chevrolet with a lap of 95.694 mph in qualifying on Saturday morning. It was his first career Xfinity series pole. Creed was knocked out of last year’s race in the final stage after a multicar crash at Turn 1.
Custer also qualified for the front row with a lap of 95.398 mph, but was sent to the back at the start because of adjustments.
Sammy Smith had to pit after the first lap because his No. 18 Toyota got stuck in second gear. Chandler Smith spun out on the first lap after contact with Connor Mosack and had to pit early. There was no caution.
The first caution came out on the 18th lap when Stefan Parsons’ No. 07 Chevrolet had engine failure. Then Daniel Hemric’s No. 11 Chevrolet caught on fire under caution. After repairs were made on his car, Hemric returned to the track to help him prepare for next week’s road course race at Sonoma.
“Very rare to have something like that happen,” Hemric said.
John Hunter Nemechek, who finished 10th but remained atop the points standings, took over the lead out of the caution, but Creed overcame him on the last corner to win the first stage. It was his second stage win of the year.
With two laps to go in the second stage, Creed spun off after contact to Nemechek and Custer, who climbed from all the way in the back, took over Nemechek to win the stage.
But Custer went off the course on the restart, and Allgaier took the lead to start the final stage.
There was a caution with eight laps left when Riley Herbst’s engine caught fire. Allgaier held the lead at the restart, but Creed moved into second ahead of Custer and Kligerman.
The NASCAR Cup series was in Madison, Illinois, for Sunday’s Enjoy Illinois 300.
DETROIT GRAND PRIX’S SPLIT PITS ADDS INTRIGUE TO INDYCAR RACE’S RETURN DOWNTOWN
DETROIT (AP) IndyCar is throwing two new wrinkles – and a lot of bumps – at its drivers in the Motor City.
The Detroit Grand Prix will make its debut on a 10-turn, 1.7 mile downtown street circuit Sunday. Just to add more intrigue for fans and complexities for teams, the course includes a split pit lane that will force drivers to find a way to peacefully merge back onto the track.
“We’re going to find out if we can get along this weekend,” Indianapolis 500 champion and Team Penske driver Josef Newgarden said.
The split pit will position 14 drivers on the left 13 on the right, experimenting with such a setup for the first time in series history.
“I think it’s innovation,” Arrow McLaren driver Pato O’Ward said. “If it works out, we’re going to look like heroes. If it doesn’t, well, we tried.”
The Detroit Grand Prix is trying to make another run at hosting the event downtown – under IndyCar owner and Motor City advocate Roger Penske – after having races on a 2.5 mile course in the same area from 1989-91 before moving to Belle Isle.
Points-leader Alex Palou, who won the pole Saturday, is not keeping his criticism of the new circuit to himself. Palou wrote Detroit POV in a post on Twitter, showing a GIF of jeeps bouncing on an undulating road.
“It’s too tight for INDYCARs,” said Palou, who drives for Chip Ganassi Racing. “It’s too short for INDYCARs. There’s too much traffic. It’s too bumpy.”
Scott McLaughlin, perhaps predictably because he drives for Team Penske, defended Detroit’s new circuit.
“There’s been a lot of noise I’ve seen in Twitter from other drivers and stuff,” McLaughlin said. “At the end of the day this is a new track, new complex.
“Belle Isle was getting old. We had to do it.”
The new, shorter track includes a straightaway on Jefferson Avenue, in the shadow of General Motors world headquarters, that is seven-tenths of a mile long to potentially make passing more possible than it was on the narrow track at Belle Isle.
“It seems like this is wide open,” Andretti Autosports driver Kyle Kirkwood said. “Once you’re doing 180, 190 down into there, it doesn’t feel as wide.”
Soon after finishing the straightaway, Turn 3 is a hairpin that might present problems.
“Everyone is going to be, I imagine, trying to get through there single file,” Kirkwood said. “That’s never really the case, right?”
After turning only left at the Indy 500, drivers will go right and left – sometimes at 90 degrees – on a surface that is a mix of asphalt and concrete.
Felix Rosenqvist expects traffic on the track to be the worst it has been this season and many drivers are expecting chaos.
“There’s no space,” the Arrow McLaren driver said. “It’s 330 feet between each car is I think what we calculated. Under 2.2 seconds is the gap if all the cars were on track at once.”
Palou won the pole for the first time on a street course, turning a lap at 1 minute, 1.8592 seconds in one of four Hondas that are were among the top six in qualifying.
“Hopefully we can try and keep the first position, then try and be up front,” Palou said. “We know we have a lot of speed. If we have clean air, we’ll be able to have a good race.”
McLaughlin finished second in qualifying followed by Romain Grosjean of Andretti Autosport, six-time champion Scott Dixon from Chip Ganassi Racing, Newgarden and Ericsson.
Newgarden became the first IndyCar driver to win two races this season at the Indy 500. He passed defending race winner and Chip Ganassi Racing driver Marcus Ericsson during a controversial, one-lap shootout after there were three red flags in the final 16 laps. Palou, Ericsson, Kirkwood and McLaughlin each has won one race.
GAMBLERS RALLY PAST MAULERS IN FOURTH QUARTER
Mark Thompson’s late 33-yard touchdown run capped the Houston Gamblers’ 20-19 comeback victory against the Pittsburgh Maulers in USFL action Saturday in Canton, Ohio.
Chris Blewitt missed a 41-yard field goal for Pittsburgh (2-6) with 1:55 left and Houston (5-3) won for the fifth time in six games. The Maulers, who led 16-6 entering the fourth quarter, have lost three straight.
Pittsburgh took a 13-0 lead on Troy Williams’ 2-yard touchdown run in the first quarter and a pair of Blewitt field goals (22 and 54 yards) in the second quarter.
The Gamblers got on the board late in the first half with a 23-yard TD run by Thompson, who finished with 98 yards on 14 carries.
After Blewitt’s 33-yard field goal extended Pittsburgh’s lead to 16-6 in the third quarter, Houston began its comeback with a 14-yard TD pass from Kenji Bahar to Keke Chism. Blewitt pushed Pittsburgh’s lead back to 19-13 with his fourth field goal before Thompson’s late score.
Stallions 27, Stars 24
Alex McGough connected with La’Michael Pettway for a 7-yard touchdown pass with 25 seconds remaining to lift host Birmingham over Philadelphia.
Trailing 24-20, the Stallions (6-2) went 65 yards on nine plays for the go-ahead score, then clinched the victory when Nate Brooks intercepted Stars quarterback Case Cookus with two seconds remaining.
McGough was 24 of 35 for 333 passing yards, including touchdowns to Davion Davis (17 yards), Jace Sternberger (10) and Pettway. Davis had four receptions for 120 yards and one score.
Cookus was 20 of 32 for 265 yards, three TDs and one interception for the Stars (4-4). Corey Coleman caught four passes for 107 yards, including a 24-yard TD.
ALABAMA LANDS COMMITMENT FROM TOP 2025 RB ANTHONY ROGERS
Class of 2025 running back prospect Anthony Rogers committed to Alabama on Friday.
The four-star running back, an Alabama native, is now with IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. He is ranked the No. 33 overall prospect in his class by 247Sports and No. 39 by ESPN.
The 247Sports composite rankings, meanwhile, peg Rogers as the eighth-best running back in the class.
Rogers, who’s listed at 5-foot-8 and 185 pounds, chose the Crimson Tide over Auburn, Florida, Georgia and Oregon.
While it’s still early, Nick Saban and company have the second-ranked recruiting class for 2025, according to 247Sports, a group led by five-star wide receiver Ryan Williams.
TOP INDIANA RELEASES
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Indians offense backed a gem from Osvaldo Bido with its fourth double-digit run performance of the week to clinch a series win against the Toledo Mud Hens on Saturday night at Victory Field, 10-7.
Bido (W, 3-3), making his ninth start of the season, limited the damage with seven strikeouts and just one free base surrendered on a hit-by-pitch to begin the game. After surrendering an RBI single to Parker Meadows in the first inning to give Toledo (24-31) a short-lived lead, Bido sat down the next 12 consecutive batters.
Meanwhile, the Indians (27-28) offense continued its dominance over Mud Hens pitching, scoring multiple runs in the second, third and fifth innings. After a two-run single by Jared Triolo gave Indy the lead in the second inning, a pair of doubles by Cal Mitchell and Miguel Andújar before a run-scoring wild pitch extended the lead to 5-1 in the third.
The game was broken open in the fifth when the Indians countered one Mud Hen run with four of their own via an error, run-scoring groundout, sacrifice fly and Aaron Shackelford single. Endy Rodríguez tacked on another with a single in the sixth.
Toledo rallied in the top of the ninth and scored five runs to come within striking distance of Indianapolis. Back-to-back two-out home runs by Corey Joyce and Justyn-Henry Malloy highlighted the frame.
Andújar logged four hits for the second time of the series to tie his career high. In four games against Toledo this week, he is 11-for-18 with five runs scored, two doubles, one home run and six RBI. Triolo led the Indians with three RBI and extended his RBI streak to five games, all of which have come against the Mud Hens.
The Indians have now scored double-digit runs in each of their four wins this series and seven of their last 18 games.
Indianapolis will look to take five of six games from Toledo for the second time this season tomorrow afternoon at 1:35 PM ET.
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Nailbiters have been a theme for the Indiana baseball program in 2023, as the three-run blast off the bat of senior Peter Serruto in the seventh inning proved to be the difference in a 5-3 victory over No. 12 seeded Kentucky inside Kentucky Proud Park on Saturday (June 3).
The win puts IU into the Sunday (June 4) regional championship game at 6 p.m. between the winner of the West Virginia/Kentucky game (Noon). With a win, IU will advance to its second NCAA Super Regional in program history, but with a loss it will set up a winner-take-all game on Monday (June 5).
A first-inning, leadoff home run from senior Phillip Glasser put Indiana (43-18) on the scoreboard first, but Kentucky (37-19) answered with a run in the second inning. The game stayed tied at 1-1 before two Wildcat runs in the seventh. A three-run home run from Serruto gave IU the lead back in the bottom of the inning and an eighth inning run capped the scoring for IU.
The 43rd win of the season ties the 1996, 1987 and 1986 squads for the fifth-most in a single season in program history. The two-run victory marks the 20th win by two-or-fewer runs on the season for Indiana and makes IU 20-4 in games decided by one or two runs.
Indiana hit multiple home runs in an NCAA postseason game for the eighth time in program history and the third time in an NCAA Lexington Regional game. The 2017 team hit four home runs vs. Ohio and two more against Kentucky at Cliff Hagan Stadium – former home of the Wildcats – in the 2017 NCAA Lexington Regional.
Two home runs and a wild pitch provide just enough offense for Indiana, who out-hit Kentucky, 8-6. Freshman Devin Taylor and sophomore Josh Pyne each posted multi-hit games, while Serruto provided his 12th career multi-RBI game.
Glasser jumped the first pitch for his seventh home run of the season and second leadoff home run of the year (Purdue; May 12). Serruto’s three RBIs mean Indiana has won 12 straight games with the right-handed hitter drives in an RBI and he also chipped in his 10th sacrifice hit of the season.
Freshman Connor Foley (4-2) fired the final 2 2/3 innings and didn’t allow a run of his own on one hit to earn the victory. He induced five flyball outs, struck out two and got one ground out. The right-hander entered in the seventh inning with the bases loaded and stranded two of three inherited runners.
Sophomore Ryan Kraft threw four innings in the start and allowed one run on three hits with one walk ad two strikeouts. Redshirt senior Craig Yoho tossed 2 1/3 innings with two runs – one earned – allowed on two hits and two walks. He struck out four batters and hit three. The pitching staff stranded 10 base runners in the game, as well.
Starting pitcher Zack Lee (5-3) completed seven innings and allowed four runs on five hits. He hit one batter, did not walk anyone and struck out nine batters in the loss. Ryan Waldschmidt and Devin Burkes each drove in RBIs in the game, while six different Wildcats accounted for hits in the contest.
Phillip Glasser led off the inning with a first-pitch solo home run to left-center field.
Indiana 1, Kentucky 0
A one-out double from Hunter Gilliam was followed by an RBI single from Ryan Waldschmidt.
Indiana 1, Kentucky 1
The first batter of the inning grounded out and the next three reached with a hit-by-pitch, base hit and fielder’s choice. With runners on first and second base, Jackson Gray hit a ground ball to second base that was thrown high to second base and allowed a run to score. A second hit-by-pitch loaded the bases and Devin Burkes extended the lead with a sacrifice fly.
Kentucky 3, Indiana 1
Josh Pyne doubled and Hunter Jessee was hit-by-pitch with one out. After a flyout, Peter Serruto lifted a flyball to right field that landed in the IU bullpen to give the Hoosiers the lead back.
Indiana 4, Kentucky 3
Devin Taylor and Brock Tibbitts singled, with an error putting runners on first and third with one out. A wild pitch scored Taylor from third.
Indiana 5, Kentucky 3
Indiana will play the winner of the Kentucky/West Virginia on Sunday at 6 p.m. and with a win can advance to its second NCAA Super Regional in program history. Television designations will be announced at a later time. The games will be carried on the Indiana Sports Radio Network and available via the ESPN streaming platforms.
INDIANA STATE BASEBALL
TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – It was bedlam at Bob Warn Field again on Saturday night as Indiana State put together a five-run rally in the bottom of the eighth inning to top Iowa, 7-4, in the Terre Haute Regional winner’s bracket game.
The Sycamores (44-15) rally started after Iowa (43-15) turned to the bullpen with a 4-2 lead as Jared Simpson (4-4) took the mound against the top of the Indiana State lineup. The No. 14-seed Sycamores in the NCAA Tournament started to get the sold-out crowd at The Bob stirring as Randal Diaz was hit by a pitch to open the frame.
Following a strikeout, Luis Hernandez legged out an infield single giving ISU two runners on base with the heart of the Sycamore lineup due up. Adam Pottinger, who had already homered earlier in the game, connected on a bloop single just out of the reach of the Iowa shortstop loading the bases and bringing up Mike Sears.
Sears worked a full count before drawing the bases loaded walk scoring Diaz and pulling Indiana State back within 4-3. The Hawkeyes went back to the bullpen with Luke Llewellyn entering the contest and retiring Parker Stinson on strikes to set the stage for Miguel Rivera.
The Sycamore first baseman continued his stretch of clutch hitting throughout the 2023 season as Rivera connected on a 1-1 pitch from the Iowa reliever and drove the ball off the bottom of the wall in right field bringing home Hernandez and Pottinger to give ISU the 5-4 lead. Grant Magill followed three pitches later with a double to right center scoring Sears and Rivera to give Indiana State the 7-4 lead.
ISU turned to closer Jared Spencer (S, 7) in the top of the ninth and Iowa made it interesting as Brayden Frazier drove a pitch deep to left center. However, Pottinger proved up to the task going up and over the wall to rob the potential home run for the first out of the frame. Six pitches later, Spencer got Iowa’s Cade Moss to ground into the game-ending double play to secure the win and send the Sycamores into a potential championship game on Sunday night.
Connor Fenlong (11-2) went eight strong innings on the mound as the redshirt senior pitched a masterful game on the mound against the Hawkeye lineup. He allowed seven hits and four runs while tying his season and career-high with eight strikeouts against Iowa.
Pottinger had two of Indiana State’s six hits on the night including a solo home run in the second inning to power the Sycamore lineup. Luis Hernandez and Grant Magill both added stolen bases in the win.
Brody Brecht went 7.0 innings for Iowa in taking the no-decision on the mound. The Iowa right-hander allowed two hits and two runs while walking four and striking out eight. Simpson took the loss after allowing four ISU runs, while Llewellyn went the final 0.2 innings to close out the game.
Raider Tello had three of Iowa’s seven hits in the game and scored a pair of runs to highlight the Hawkeye offense.
How They Scored
Iowa scored early in the top of the first inning as the Raider Tello connected on an RBI single to right center bringing home Sam Petersen to give the Hawkeyes the 1-0 lead.
The Sycamores evened the score in the bottom of the second as Adam Pottinger connected on a leadoff solo home run over the right field wall to knot the game up at 1-1.
Indiana State took the 2-1 lead in the bottom of the third inning as Randal Diaz connected on an RBI sacrifice fly to center field bringing home Grant Magill to give the Sycamores the one-run advantage.
Iowa evened the game up in the top of the fourth as Michael Seegers connected on an RBI base hit up the middle to tie the game at 2-2.
The Hawkeyes took the 4-2 lead in the top of the sixth inning following Sam Hojnar’s RBI double and Kyle Huckstorf’s RBI sacrifice fly giving Iowa its largest lead of the night.
The Sycamores mounted a five-run rally in the bottom of the eighth inning parked by a Luis Hernandez infield single and capped by back-to-back two-run doubles from both Miguel Rivera and Grant Magill to give ISU the final 7-4 margin.
News & Notes
Indiana State improved to 44-15 overall on the season with the win over Iowa.
ISU also improves to 2-1 all-time against the Hawkeyes with the win and avenged an early season loss to Iowa down in Port Charlotte, Fla. at the start of the 2023 season.
Saturday’s win marked just the second time in Indiana State history the Sycamores won their first two NCAA Regional games. The only other time came back in 1986 when the Sycamores topped Michigan and Central Michigan in the Mideast Regional on their way to advancing in the postseason.
The Sycamores’ 44 wins sets a new high in the Mitch Hannahs coaching era surpassing the previous mark of 43 set back in the 2019 season.
Adam Pottinger ran his on-base streak to 35 consecutive games continuing the longest on-base streak in the Mitch Hannahs era. Pottinger went 2-for-4 on the day with a solo home run and single while scoring twice in Saturday’s win.
Pottinger homered in back-to-back games for the first time in the 2023 season and moved into second on the team roster with 11 on the year trailing just Mike Sears (19).
Connor Fenlong continued an impressive streak of his own on Saturday as the redshirt senior picked up his ninth win over his last 11 starts on the mound. The Gouverneur, N.Y. native has not lost a game since March 19 and has gone at least seven innings in seven of his last eight starts.
Fenlong’s streak without surrendering an earned run was snapped at 30.1 innings on Saturday afternoon as the redshirt senior gave up four runs in Saturday’s contest.
Zach Davidson continues a spectacular run on the mound as the junior left-hander has not allowed a run dating back to March 31 against UIC. The span covers 10 appearances and 21.1 innings. During the streak, Davidson has posted a 37:4 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
Jared Spencer closed out the game for his seventh save of the season making it back-to-back nights for the sophomore left-hander.
Indiana State will play the winner of No. 2 Iowa/No. 3 North Carolina on Sunday evening with first pitch set for 6 p.m. ET. The game will be carried live on 105.5 The Legend. Television designations have not been determined.
U OF I BASEBALL
CARY, N.C.—The UIndy baseball team opened the 2023 NCAA DII Championship Saturday evening with a 6-5 loss to Millersville University. The Greyhounds scored five unanswered runs to build a three-run lead through five-and-a-half innings, but the top-seeded Marauders capped their comeback with a go-ahead home run in the seventh and hung on for the win.
In their first “World Series” appearance in 11 years, the Hounds move to an elimination game on Monday afternoon, facing fifth-seeded Cal State San Bernardino at 1:30 p.m. ET.
HOW IT HAPPENED
After Millersville hung two on the board in the bottom of the first inning, the Greyhound delivered a game-tying counterpunch in the third before tacking on a combined three runs in the fifth and sixth innings to take a 5-2 advantage.
UIndy strung together three straight two-out singles in the top of the third, with RBIs coming from All-American Drew Donaldson and all-region honoree Caleb Vaughn.
Brandon DeWitt drove home Jared Bujdos with the go-ahead run in the fifth, and Easton Good added a two-run, opposite-field double in the sixth to extend the lead.
The Marauders would not go quietly, however. The Atlantic Region champs got one run back in the bottom of the sixth before shortstop Thomas Caufield’s three-run homer in the bottom of the seventh gave Millersville the lead for good.
INSIDE THE BOX
– DeWitt (10-3) tossed a solid 6 1/3 innings but endured the loss. He walked no one and also picking off two base runners, and also had a pair of hits in the leadoff spot.
– Vaughn went 3-fo-5 at the plate with a double and an RBI.
– Reliever E.J. White pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings.
– Catcher Will Spear scored twice and stole his first base of the season.

TODAY IN BASEBALL HISTORY
1890 Submariner Tim Keefe of the New York Giants franchise of the Players League defeats the Boston Reds, 9-4, to record his 300th victory. ‘Sir Timothy,’ who won 19 straight decisions in 1888, will finish his 14-year career with 342 victories.
1911 In a 26-3 win over the Braves at the Palace of the Fans in Cincinnati, thirteen Reds players cross home plate. It is the highest number of different players from one team to score in a single game in major league history.
1937 Gus Suhr establishes a new National League record when he plays in his 822nd consecutive game. The Pirates first baseman’s streak will end the following day when he attends his mother’s funeral in San Francisco.
1940 The Braves sign South Park High School (Buffalo, NY) standout Warren Spahn, who will make his major league debut in 1942 when he appears in two games as a 20-year-old for Boston before serving three years in the Army during World War II. The Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient will return to the National League in 1946 to win the first game of his career at the age of 25 en route to becoming the winningest southpaw in the history of the game with 363 victories.
1940 The Cardinals play their first night game at home, losing to Brooklyn, 10-1, despite Joe Medwick’s 5-for-5 performance that included three doubles. The honor of hosting the first evening tilt in St. Louis, that took place on May 24, was given to the Browns, after the two teams finally agreed to split the $150,000 cost of installing lights at Sportsman’s Park, the ballpark they share.
1940 Pittsburgh routs the Boston Bees, 14-2, in the first night game played in the Steel City. Joe Bowman, the Pirates’ starter, tosses a five-hitter, with rookies Bob Elliott and Maurice Van Robays providing the offense with timely extra-base hits.
1951 Pirates outfielder Gus Bell hits for the cycle in Philadelphia as the Bucs beat the Phillies, 12-4. In 2004, his grandson David, whose dad Buddy also played in the major leagues, also collects a single, double, triple, and home run in a game, marking the first time a grandfather-grandson combination has accomplished the feat.
1953 As part of a ten-player swap, the Pirates deal Ralph Kiner, Joe Garagiola, George Metkovich, and Howie Pollet to the Cubs for Bob Addis, Toby Atwell, George Freese, Gene Hermanski, Bob Schultz, Preston Ward, and $150,000. Frank Thomas, who will hit 30 home runs and collect 102 RBIs to establish new rookie records for the Bucs, replaces Kiner, a perennial All-Star outfielder.
1957 At a seventy-five-minute meeting at City Hall with Walter O’Malley and Horace Stoneham, presidents of the Dodgers and Giants, respectively, tell Mayor Robert Wagner neither club committed to moving out of New York – and none to stay in the Big Apple. After the National League’s permission for the teams to explore the possibility of moving their franchises to the West Coast, His Honor assures them that the city will be of assistance in replacing the Polo Grounds and Ebbets Field, the aging ballparks the clubs call home.
1964 At Connie Mack Stadium, Sandy Koufax throws his third no-hitter in three years, blanking the Phillies 3-0. The Dodgers’ southpaw, who will add a perfect game to his resume next season, joins Larry Corcoran, Cy Young, and Bob Feller as the only other major leaguers to pitch three career hitless games.
1967 At Busch Stadium, Cardinals outfielder Curt Flood’s errorless streak of 227 games and 568 chances ends when he drops Rich Nye’s fifth-inning fly ball. The muff leads to an unearned run, but St. Louis still beats Chicago, 4-3.
1968 At the Ambassador Hotel, Robert Kennedy tells his followers in the ballroom giving his victory speech in the California primary before being fatally shot, “I like to express my high regard to Don Drysdale, who pitched his sixth straight shutout tonight. And I hope we can have as good fortune in our campaign.” At nearby Chavez Ravine, the Dodgers right-hander had blanked the Bucs, 6-0, extending his scoreless streak to 54 innings.
1968 Don Drysdale, pitching his sixth consecutive shutout, defeats the Pirates, 5-0. The Dodger right-hander will extend his major league record scoreless streak to 58.2 innings before yielding a run in his next start.
1972 The Dodgers retire Roy Campanella’s uniform number 39. Campy, who won the MVP three times catching for Brooklyn in the fifties, joins Jackie Robinson (42) and Sandy Koufax (32) to be honored in this manner.
1974 On Ten-Cent Beer Night, home plate ump Nestor Chylak stops play with the score tied at five in the bottom of the ninth, giving the Rangers the forfeited victory over the Indians at Cleveland Stadium. The promotion, which sells an estimated 60,000 cups of brew to a crowd of 25,134 fans, becomes unmanageable when drunken Cleveland fans attacked Texas outfielder Jeff Burroughs and the umpires.
1976 Mets right fielder Dave Kingman, in the team’s 11-0 victory at Dodger Stadium, hits three home runs. Sky King’s two-run dinger and two three-run round-trippers drive in eight runs, a new club record.
1980 Mets right-hander Pat Zachry (7) and Neil Allen (3) combine to throw a three-hitter against the Cardinals at Shea Stadium. Unfortunately for the Mets, the third Redbird hit is a home run by Ken Reitz leading off the tenth inning of the team’s eventual 1-0 loss to St. Louis.
1980 At Shea Stadium, Jim Kaat, recently traded from the Yankees, goes the distance when the Cardinal left-hander blanks the Mets in 10 innings, 1-0. The 41-year-old hurler, who didn’t start a game last season, gets the victory thanks to third baseman Ken Reitz’s extra-inning solo home run.
1986 In a 12-3 rout of the Braves, Pirates rookie outfielder Barry Bonds hits his first major league home run, facing Craig McMurtry. Bobby’s son will become the all-time career home run leader, hitting 762 during his 22-year career playing for Pittsburgh and the San Francisco Giants.
1989 After trailing 10-0 after six innings, the Blue Jays rally to beat the Red Sox, 13-11. Junior Felix’s two-run home run in the top of the 12th inning is the decisive blow in the Fenway Park contest.
1990 En route to a 6-0 complete-game victory, 22-year-old Dodger right-hander Ramon Martinez limits Atlanta to three hits. Pedro’s older brother, who will finish the season with a 20-6 record, strikes out 18 batters during the contest.
1996 Jacksonville Suns’ (Tigers – AA) reliever Pamela Davis throws one scoreless inning of relief to earn the win in a minor league exhibition game against the Australian Olympic team, becoming the first woman to pitch for a major league farm club.
1996 Paul Wilder is selected as the Devil Rays’ first-ever draft pick when the team participates in the June free-agent amateur draft. The 18-year-old outfielder-first baseman, who tops the huge list of 97 players chosen by Tampa Bay, will spend four years in the minor leagues without ever appearing in a major league game.
1998 The Dodgers trade the 1995 National League Rookie of the Year Hideo Nomo (2-7 with a 5.05 ERA) and reliever Brad Clontz to the Mets for pitchers Dave Mlicki and Greg McMichael.
1998 The Indians become the first publicly traded major league team when the team raises $60 million by selling all four-million shares of common stock at the purchase price of $15. Although the shares sold to the public each carry a single vote, Mr. Jacobs will still control the club, owning most of the 2.3 million Class B shares that count as 10,000 votes each.
2000 At Shea Stadium, Esteban Yan becomes the 14th player to hit a home run on the first pitch thrown to him in a major league game. In addition to his historic homer, the Devil Rays starter, giving up three runs in five innings, picks up the victory when Tampa Bay rout the Mets in an inter-league contest, 15-5.
2001 After falling behind in the count, 3-0, Little League pitcher Robert Knight strikes out the final batter to complete a perfect game in which all 18 batters struck out. The 5-foot-3 twelve-year-old also had three hits as the Tigers beat the Giants, 7-0.
2001 In front of the team store at Miller Park, the Brewers unveil a bronze sculpture of Robin Yount, the two-time American League Most Valuable Player who played his entire 20-year career with the team. The work created by sculptor Brian Maughan depicts an older player in mid-swing but is called “The Kid,” a nickname given to the future Hall of Famer as an 18-year-old in his rookie season in 1974.
2003 Although his bat may have contained cork in yesterday’s game, all five of Sammy Sosa’s historic bats housed at the Hall of Fame and the 76 confiscated from his locker by major league baseball revealed no signs of tampering. X-rays and CT scans clear the Cubs slugger’s remaining lumber.
2003 At Puerto Rico’s Hiram Bithorn Stadium, Jeff DaVanon of the Angels joins Lee May (1969, Reds), Frank Thomas (1962, Mets), and Gus Zernial (1951, A’s) as the fourth player to have three consecutive multi-homer games. At the same time, the Anaheim outfielder also becomes the third player to do it from both sides of the plate in two back-to-back contests, matching Ken Caminiti (1995, Padres) and Eddie Murray (1987, Orioles).
2006 After going 1-for-11 in his first four games, Lastings Milledge collects three hits, including his first big league dinger. The two-run home run off Giants All-Star closer Armando Benitez, which ties the game in the tenth, sparks controversy when the Mets rookie, on his way to his position in right field in the 11th inning, high fives some of the Shea Stadium fans in the front row, much to the displeasure to many players in both dugouts.
2009 In the opener of a twin bill, Randy Johnson gives a solid six-inning performance in the Giants’ 5-1 victory over the Nationals to earn his 300th victory. The ‘Big Unit’ becomes the 24th pitcher to accomplish the feat and the first to reach the milestone on his first attempt since Tom Seaver beat the Yankees in 1985.
2010 The Brevard County Manatees announce they will stop taking ‘BP’ to protest the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico caused by the company with the same initials. The Florida State League team, a farm club of the Brewers, plans to refer to batting practice as hitting rehearsal, to become better known as ‘HR.’
2010 The Orioles, the team with the worst record in the major leagues, fire manager Dave Trembley after his club comes home from a 0-6 road trip. Third base coach Juan Samuel is appointed the interim skipper of the 15-39 last-place Birds.
2012 With the No. 1 pick in the Major League Baseball draft, the Astros take Carlos Correa, making him the first player from Puerto Rico to be selected number one overall. Before the selection of the 17-year-old shortstop from Velázquez, former major league catcher Ramon Castro had previously been the highest-drafted player out of the Commonwealth when he was chosen No. 17 overall by Houston in 1994.
2013 After tying the game in the tenth inning with a home run off Steve Cishek, John Mayberry Jr. hits his first career bases-full round-tripper with two outs at the bottom of the 11th, giving the Phillies a 7-3 walk-off victory over Miami at Citizens Bank Park. The Philadelphia outfielder, who entered the contest in the seventh frame as a pinch-hitter, ties a major league record shared by five other players for the most round-trippers hit in extra innings in one game.
2018 Aaron Judge becomes the first major leaguer with eight strikeouts in a doubleheader when he earns a platinum sombrero in the Yankees’ 4-2 nightcap loss to the Tigers. In the opener at Comerica Park, the Bronx right fielder whiffed in his first three at-bats, facing Detroit starter Mike Fiers.
June 4, 1875- Harvard faced Tufts University in the first game between two American colleges played under rules similar to the May 1874 McGill/Harvard contests. The rules included each side fielding 11 men at any given time, the ball was advanced by kicking or carrying it, and tackles of the ball carrier stopped play. Surprisingly the game was won by the upstart Tufts squad.
June 4, 1944- Cleveland Browns franchise forms in the All-America Football Conference when local Cleveland businessman Arthur B. McBride aquired the franchise in the new league. When the AAFC dissolved in 1949 the franchise joined the NFL. McBride and his partners sold the Browns to another group of North Eastern Ohio investors in 1953 for a price that was unheard of at the time $600,000! Eight years after that another franchise sale took place and Art Modell took controlling shares of the Browns. In 1995 Modell moved the franchise to Baltimore under the Ravens mascot name. The Browns were re-formed as a new franchise retaining their old historical records, team colors and mascot in 1999.
June 4, 1944- San Francisco 49ers franchise forms in the All-America Football Conference. The team of was one of the three former AAFC teams that merged into the NFL in 1950. Want more 49ers history? Join us on the Pigskin Dispatch Landing Page of the San Francisco 49ers, for more.
June 4, 1974- Seattle Seahawks franchise forms after almost 20 years of planning, plotting and applying. Finally on this date in 1974 the NFL granted access into the league and the Pacific Northwest gained foot hold in professional football as an expansion team.
