WASHINGTON (AP) — The best way to determine a major college football champion seemed so obvious to so many for so long. Just have a playoff. Now the people in charge of making that decision are on board, too.
WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Roger Federer gave Prince Charles a bow, then gave Fabio Fognini a royal thumping. With the Prince of Wales visiting Wimbledon for the first time since 1970, Federer was at his best Wednesday and beat Fognini 6-1, 6-3, 6-2.
ARLINGTON (AP) — The first time was much better for Texas Rangers rookie Justin Grimm. Nine days after his impressive winning major league debut, and never pitching above Double-A before that, Grimm allowed six runs and eight hits while facing only 12 batters in an 8-2 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Monday night.
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Andy Lopez finally won his national championship with Arizona. The Wildcats ended South Carolina's two-year run of dominance at the College World Series with a 4-1 victory on Monday night, rewarding Lopez for persevering through the hard times that came with rebuilding the downtrodden program he took over 11 years ago.
ARLINGTON (AP) — Matt Harrison wanted to stay in the game, pleading his case in the dugout that he felt OK. The Texas Rangers weren't taking any chances with the left-hander who keeps winning for them and is in line for a spot on the AL All-Star team that will be led by his own manager. Harrison worked five scoreless innings and matched the American League lead with his 10th victory in the Rangers' 4-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday night. His outing was cut short only because of tightness in his lower back that caused soreness in his left hip.
