DeChambeau, Wolff match eagles on 9th at US Open

MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) — Bryson DeChambeau has won the U.S. Open — the first major championship for golf’s long-hitting mad scientist.

He is the third person in history to win an NCAA title, a U.S. Amateur and the U.S. Open. The others are Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods.

DeChambeau was the only player under par in the final round, laughing off Winged Foot’s narrow fairways and thick rough with his booming drives that averaged 325 yards.

He shot 67 on Sunday to finish at 6 under. Third-round leader Matthew Wolff shot 75 to finish second, six strokes back.


Orioles halt Rays’ surge with 2-1 win

UNDATED (AP) — Tanner Houck took a no-hitter into the sixth inning of his second major league start and Michael Chavis had a huge day at the plate as the Boston Red Sox halted two long streaks with a 10-2 victory over the New York Yankees on Sunday.

Boston ended New York’s 10-game winning streak and snapped a 12-game skid against its longtime rival.

Chavis hit two homers over the Green Monster and drove in five runs. Jackie Bradley Jr. went 4 for 5, and J.D. Martinez and Bobby Dalbec each had a solo homer.

It was Boston’s first win over the Yankees this season in their last of 10 meetings.

— Carlos Carrasco allowed one hit in seven scoreless innings, and Jose Ramirez homered twice to lift the Cleveland Indians to a 7-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers.

Defensive end Nick Bosa and defensive tackle Solomon Thomas were both carted off the field two plays apart with left knee injuries in the first quarter.


Injuries mount for 49ers

Earlier, defensive end Nick Bosa, the reigning AP NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, was carted off after having his left leg bent behind him at the end of a 4-yard run by Frank Gore.
