LOUIS (AP) – Anibal Sanchez carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning and the Washington Nationals took Game 1 of the National League Championship series by defeating the Cardinals, 2-0 in St. Louis last night.

HUMBLE, Texas (AP) – Peter Malnati was the clubhouse leader when the second round of the PGA’s Houston Open was suspended by darkness.

First round co-leader Talor Gooch was 9 under through 14 holes when play was stopped.
WASHINGTON (AP) – The U.S. men’s soccer team enjoyed a laugher in its first CONCACAF Nations League match.

McKennie’s third goal put the Yanks ahead, 4-0 just 13 minutes into the game. Jordan Morris scored and tied a U.S. record with three assists.

UNDATED (AP) – Olympic gold medalist Conor Dwyer has announced his retirement shortly after receiving a 20-month doping ban for having testosterone pellets inserted into his hip. The 30-year-old Dwyer helped the US win relay gold medals in 2012 and 2016 and an individual bronze in 2016. He tested positive three times between Nov. 15 and Dec. 20 last year. His ban was made effective on Dec. 21, meaning he wouldn’t have been eligible for next year’s Olympics.
