D-Backs 6, Tigers 4 – D-backs scratch across two late runs to beat Tigers 6-4, avoid three-game sweep
Joc Pederson and Christian Walker both had two RBIs, and the Arizona Diamondbacks avoided a three-game sweep by beating the Detroit Tigers 6-4. The D-backs scratched across two runs in the seventh to break a 4-all tie. Randal Grichuk scored on a weak groundout by Pavin Smith after catcher Jake Rogers couldn’t handle a bouncing throw from shortstop Javier Báez, who had trouble getting the ball out of his glove. Christian Walker came home one batter later on another soft grounder by rookie Blaze Alexander. D-backs closer Paul Sewald retired the Tigers in order in the ninth for his third save.

Yankees 7, White Sox 2 – Yankees win 7th in a row, beat White Sox 7-2 for 3-game sweep as Judge and Berti homer
Aaron Judge and Jon Berti homered into Yankee Stadium’s right field short porch, and New York extended its winning streak to seven by beating the Chicago White Sox 7-2 for a three-game sweep. Judge’s homer was his 13th this season and seventh in 13 games. New York, an AL-best 33-15, has won 13 of 15 and is on its longest winning streak since Sept. 18-25, 2022. The Yankees swept their fourth series, matching last year’s total. Chicago, an AL-worst 14-33, have been swept seven times. The White Sox dropped to a major league-worst 4-19 on the road.

Pirates 3, Cubs 2 – Keller pitches 6 effective innings as the Pirates edge the Cubs 3-2
Mitch Keller pitched six effective innings, Nick Gonzales hit a key two-run single and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Chicago Cubs 3-2. Jack Suwinski connected for another homer against Jameson Taillon as Pittsburgh closed out a 4-3 road trip by taking three of four from Chicago. Gonzales, Andrew McCutchen and Jared Triolo each had two of the Pirates’ 10 hits. Keller improved to 3-0 with a 1.29 ERA in three May starts. Seiya Suzuki and Christopher Morel each hit a sacrifice fly for Chicago.

Tigers take series with Arizona, despite falling in series finale – Monday Morning Sports Update (1)

Pacers 130, Knicks 109 – Pacers set NBA playoff shooting mark, top Knicks 130-109 in Game 7
Tyrese Haliburton scored 26 points and the Indiana Pacers rode one of the most sensational first halves in Game 7 history to a 130-109 victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday, advancing to the Eastern Conference finals for the first time in 10 years. The Pacers made 29 of their 38 shots in the first half, a shooting percentage of 76.3% that was the highest in the postseason since 1997, when the NBA began keeping detailed play-by-play for all four quarters. They led 70-55 at that point. The No. 6-seeded Pacers advanced to face top-seeded Boston in a series that begins Tuesday.

T-Wolves 98, Nuggets 90 – Edwards leads Wolves back from 20-point deficit for 98-90 win over defending champs
Anthony Edwards overcame a slow start and the Timberwolves roared back from a 20-point second-half deficit to eliminate the reigning NBA champion Denver Nuggets 98-90 in a Game 7 Minnesota masterpiece. The Timberwolves overcame a 15-point halftime deficit — the largest comeback in a Game 7 in NBA playoff history — behind Edwards, who had just four points, no rebounds and three assists at halftime but finished with 16 points, eight boards and seven assists. Jamal Murray led Denver with 35 points and Nikola Jokic scored 34 but they got little else from their supporting cast.

WNBA – Caitlin Clark adjusting to WNBA play, finishes first week on a high note
Caitlin Clark is adjusting to life as a professional women’s basketball player on and off the court. Her first week in the league, when she played against two of the top three teams in the WNBA last season, had moments where she looked very good and others when she struggled. Her offensive numbers are pretty impressive as she’s averaging 17.0 points, 5.7 assists and 4.3 rebounds. She’s now just the fourth player to have over 50 points and 21 assists in her first three games, joining Sue Bird, Nikki McCray and Candace Parker. There are definitely areas she can still improve on. She’s only shooting 40% from the field. That’s down 5% from her final college season and she has 21 turnovers in the first three games.

Golf – PGA – Schauffele wins first major at PGA Championship in a thriller at Valhalla
Xander Schauffele has won his first major with a thrilling win at the PGA Championship. Schauffele made a 6-foot birdie putt on the last hole at Valhalla for a one-shot victory over Bryson DeChambeau. Schauffele set a major championship scoring record in the process. The Olympic gold medalist now has something even more valuable in silver. He gets to hoist the Wanamaker Trophy. Schauffele finished at 21-under 263, breaking by one shot the major record. Schauffele is the first player since Phil Mickelson in 2005 to birdie the last hole of the PGA Championship to win by one.

Golf – PGA – Scheffler caps a ‘hectic’ weekend by rallying to a strong finish
Scottie Scheffler finished off what he called a “hectic” week at the PGA Championship by surging to an eighth-place finish. The world’s top-ranked golfer shot a 6-under 65 to finish at 13 under for the tournament. The round came two days after Scheffler spent time in a Louisville jail following his arrest on charges stemming from a traffic incident. Scheffler is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday. The 27-year-old Texan says he’s not sure what’s in store on the legal front in the near future and he’s mostly focused on getting home to his wife and newborn son.

Golf – LPGA – Nelly Korda wins Mizuho Americas Open for her 6th victory in 7 events
Nelly Korda won a back-nine showdown with Hannah Green of Australia with a par on the 18th hole to capture the Mizuho Americas Open by a stroke for her sixth win in seven starts on the LPGA Tour this year. The victory Sunday made the 25-year-old Korda the first player since Inbee Park (2013) to record six wins in a single season. Korda also bounced back from seeing her record-tying five-tournament winning streak snapped last week by Rose Zhang at the Cognizant Founders Cup. Zhang withdrew Thursday after three holes with an intestinal issue.

Indy500 – Team Penske locks out Indy 500 front row qualifying as Larson makes grid
Scott McLaughlin in the famed “Yellow Submarine” entry led a Team Penske sweep of the front row of Indianapolis 500 qualifying with a new track record Sunday around Indianapolis Motor Speedway. McLaughlin’s four-lap average of 234.220 mph broke the mark set by reigning IndyCar champion Alex Palou last year. Will Power qualified second and reigning Indy 500 winner Josef Newgarden was third as Team Penske swept the front row for the first time since 1988. Kyle Larson qualified fifth for his Indianapolis 500 debut. He is the fifth driver to attempt to compete in both the Indy 500 and NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600 on the same day.
