U.S. OPEN QUALIFIER: The 18-hole local qualifier is Monday at Maketewah. For tee times go online: gcga.org.
BROWNS: Wide receiver Dennis Northcutt agreed to terms on a new three-year contract with Cleveland, three months after being denied free agency after his agent missed a deadline. He had been seeking a deal worth $3 million a season.
BELMONT PARK: Purge pulled away from the field in the stretch and won the $200,000 Peter Pan Stakes by 6 3/4 lengths over Swingforthefences. Purge earned a start in two weeks in the Belmont Stakes, where Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Smarty Jones will attempt to become the first Triple Crown champ in 26 years.
Purge, ridden by John Velazquez, finished second to Smarty Jones in the Rebel Stakes and fifth to that colt in the Arkansas Derby.
STRASBOURG OPEN: Top-seeded Lindsay Davenport was upset in the final by Luxembourg's Claudine Schaul, a 66th-ranked player who won her first title. Schaul won 2-6, 6-0, 6-3 against a player who is ranked No. 4 and is a three-time Grand Slam champion.
CASABLANCA: Qualifier Santiago Ventura upset top-seeded Dominik Hrbaty 6-3, 1-6, 6-4 in the final.
RAIFFEISEN GP: Filippo Volandri won the first ATP title of his career, defeating Xavier Malisse 6-1, 6-4 in the final at St. Poelten, Austria.
MAYWEATHER WINS: Crafty and powerful, Floyd Mayweather Jr. made the jump in weight class look easy.
Mayweather overwhelmed DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley on Saturday in a 140-pound WBC elimination bout.
Shaking off two minor injuries and a fourth-round scare, Mayweather (32-0) knocked Corley down twice and toyed with him for much of the 12-round fight, coasting to victory and a possible showdown with junior welterweight champ Arturo Gatti.
UC WINS FINALE: John Deluca hit a three-run homer in the sixth inning to lift the Bearcats past UAB 7-4 for their first victory at new UC Baseball Stadium on the final day of the season. UC finished 15-40 overall, 6-24 in Conference USA.
PHELPS WINS, LOSES: Michael Phelps defeated world champion Ian Crocker to win the 100-meter butterfly but lost the 200 backstroke in the Santa Clara meet. Gary Hall Jr., the defending Olympic champion, finished third in the 50 freestyle.
