Devers double in 7th breaks up Wojciechowski no-hit bid

Devers double in 7th breaks up Wojciechowski no-hit bid

Boston's Rafael Devers led off the seventh inning with a double to end a no-hit bid by Baltimore Orioles right-hander Asher Wojciechowski. Making his fourth start of the season, Wojciechowski was 0-3 with a 5.74 ERA going into Sunday's game against the Red Sox at Camden Yards. Facing the highest-scoring team in the majors, Wojciechowski allowed only two baserunners and had a career-high nine strikeouts through six innings. Although Devers broke up the no-hitter with a liner off the right-field wall, Wojciechowski completed the inning without giving up a run. The Orioles lead 4-0 against Andrew Cashner, who was traded to Boston from Baltimore just eight days earlier. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

Bad weather leads to some high scores at British Open

Bad weather leads to some high scores at British Open

Rain is no stranger to the British Open. Wet and windy weather is pretty common in Northern Ireland, too. But the adverse conditions on the final day of this year's tournament, the first time golf's oldest major has been across the Irish Sea since 1951, was evident in the scoring Sunday at Royal Portrush. Tony Finau was the only player who managed even par from the final 20 players who teed off. J.B. Holmes, in the penultimate pairing, shot 87. 'We got the worst of it,' Finau said after his 71 gave him a third-place finish, eight shots behind British Open champion Shane Lowry. 'It started raining and blowing sideways.' The R&A decided to move tee times up an hour for the final round in an effort to avoid the worst of the expected heavy rain and wind on Sunday. If they did miss it, they didn't miss much. The rain started to come down hard in the afternoon on the Dunluce Links, lashing players and fans, nearly all of them in their foul-weather gear. The wind was blowing strong, too, breaking umbrellas and forcing many a player into some tricky shots out of the rough brush that line the thin fairways. 'I felt like I played three different tournaments at this point,' said Jon Rahm, a contender early in the tournament who ended up at 3 under after a 75 on Sunday. 'I will say this is proper Open Championship weather to become a champion. You can say you truly became a champion on a perfect Open Championship day. Rain, wind, difficult. Whoever gets to do it, they will be called a champion.' That champion was Lowry, an Irishman who has been through bad weather on a golf course many times in his 32 years. And he handled the problems just fine, even on Sunday when it was at its worst and the pressure was immense, by shooting a 1-over 72 but still increasing his lead from four shots to six. It was the first time since 1996 that the winner was over par in the final round. 'It was unbelievably difficult out there, especially when that really bad rain showed up,' Lowry said. 'It was just so difficult. I kept saying to myself, 'Bogeys are not going to hurt me, so let's just keep the ball in play.'' Graeme McDowell, the 2010 U.S. Open champion who was born and raised in Portrush, was impressed with both the weather and the man who won the claret jug. 'I think the players got sunshine, they got flat calm, they got a bit of breeze from different directions and they got a little Portrush Armageddon,' said McDowell, who shot a 77 and finished 4 over. 'The afternoon they got yesterday really was the calm before the storm. For Shane to win that under duress was extremely impressive.' The British Open had only been played once outside of Scotland and England in all its years, when it was at Royal Portrush in 1951. The return this year was greeted with much fanfare from the locals, and the players and visitors have spoken glowingly about the tournament. But it was the players who actually had to endure the worst of the inclement conditions while trying to do their best at their jobs. 'This is probably one of the hardest tests as far as with this condition, just because this golf course, how penal it is on both sides of the fairways,' said Ricky Fowler, who shot a 74 and finished at 5 under after hitting his opening tee shot out-of-bounds on Sunday. 'Maybe not blowing as hard as I've seen it blow in an Open Championship, but probably some of the hardest conditions I've seen, just because of the golf course and the way it is.' ___ More AP golf: https://apnews.com/apf-Golf and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

The Latest: The late Roy Halladay inducted into Baseball HOF

The Latest: The late Roy Halladay inducted into Baseball HOF

The Latest on the Baseball Hall of Fame Inductions (all times local): ___ 2:55 p.m. The late Roy Halladay has been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. His widow, Brandy, delivered the speech and fought back tears as she spoke. The 40-year-old Halladay was killed in a plane crash in November 2017. 'I knew I was going to cry at some point. It's overwhelming the amount of people here today,' she said. 'I'm so grateful you're here. I can't tell you how many hugs I've gotten. They have extended so much love and friendship. I'm so grateful. 'The thank yous should and could go on for days. There are not enough words to thank you. I say it a lot, but it takes a village.' Halladay amassed a 203-105 record and a 3.38 ERA and 2,117 strikeouts over 416 regular season games and was 3-2 with a 2.37 ERA through five postseason starts, all with Philadelphia. He spent his last four seasons with the Phils and 12 seasons with the Blue Jays from 1998-2009 and became just the second pitcher in major league history to throw a no-hitter in the postseason, opening the 2010 NL Division Series with one against the Cincinnati Reds in the first playoff start of his career. He also pitched a perfect game that season. The family decided that there would be no logo on his plaque because both organizations meant a lot to Halladay. 'He was a true competitor ready to do whatever it took to give his team the best chance to win,' Brandy said. 'I think Roy would rather be remembered who he was, not how he performed on the field. I am so humbled to say thank you to all of you on Roy's behalf.' ___ 2:35 p.m. Mike Mussina has been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Mussina, a right-hander who starred in college for Stanford, pitched for 18 major league seasons and spent his entire career in the high-scoring AL East with the Orioles and Yankees. A five-time All-Star and seven-time Gold Glove winner, he posted a record of 270-153, pitching 3,362 2/3 innings with 2,813 strikeouts, 785 walks and an ERA of 3.68. He also had 57 complete games in 536 starts and was the first AL pitcher to win at least 10 games 17 times. Mussina thanked his wife and family, his mom, dad and brother Mark and the coaches who guided his career through the years. 'I spent a lot of time reflecting on my time in baseball,' said Mussina, the oldest first-time 20-game winner in MLB history when he reached the milestone at age 39 in 2008, his final season in the majors. 'I was never fortunate to win a Cy Young Award or be a World Series champion, win 300 games or strike out 3,000 hitters. My opportunities for those achievements are in the past. Today, I get to become a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. This time I made it.' The late Frank Robinson and Willie McCovey were honored with a moment of silence before Mussina was introduced. The two Hall of Famers died since last year's induction ceremony. ___ 1:45 p.m. The Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony has begun. The 56 members are being introduced. Former New York Yankees star Bernie Williams will perform 'The Star-Spangled Banner' and 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game' outside Clark Music Center in Cooperstown. Williams played on four World Series championship teams for the Yankees and was a teammate of new inductees Mike Mussina and Mariano Rivera. Williams is a jazz guitarist who was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award for his 2009 album 'Moving Forward.' He discovered his passion for music at an early age in his native Puerto Rico. More than 50 Hall of Famers will be on the dais to honor the Class of 2019. First to be honored will be Mussina, while Rivera, the first unanimous selection to the Hall of Fame, will speak last. ___ 11:15 a.m. A large crowd is beginning to gather for Sunday's Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Cooperstown. Local officials are predicting a crowd of at least 50,000, and despite sweltering heat, most spots in the field outside Clark Sports Center already have been staked out. Temperatures are predicted to climb into the mid-80s during the ceremony honoring the six new inductees, but a nice breeze has made it comfortable for the fans. Relievers Mariano Rivera and Lee Smith, starters Mike Mussina and the late Roy Halladay and designated hitters Edgar Martinez and Harold Baines will be feted. Rivera is the first player in history to be unanimously voted into the Hall of Fame. Former Yankees teammates Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez are expected to be in the audience. The ceremony begins at 1:30 p.m. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
