US keeps WWC title…Surgery possible for Arrieta…Yelich replaced by Chapman in HR derby

LYON, France. (AP) – Goals by Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle carried the U.S. to a 2-0 win over the Netherlands in Sunday’s Women’s World Cup final at Lyon, France. The game was scoreless until Rapinoe converted a penalty kick in the 61st minute, eight minutes before Lavelle doubled the lead. It’s the second straight World Cup title for the Americans, and a record fourth overall.

NEW YORK (AP) – Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Jake Arrieta  has bone spurs in his right elbow and will be checked during the All-Star break to see whether surgery is needed. Arrieta gave up a season-high 11 hits over just 4 1/3 innings of Saturday’s 6-5 loss to the New York Mets. Arrieta hinted after the game that he was having physical problems.

UNDATED (AP) – Reigning NL MVP and Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich has pulled out of Monday’s All-Star Home Run Derby with a back injury and will be replaced by Oakland Athletics slugger Matt Chapman. Yelich leads the majors with 31 home runs but has dealt with back issues at times throughout the first half. Yelich had been practicing for the showcase and broke a window on a houseboat outside PNC Park earlier this week while preparing.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – NASCAR driver Justin Haley has earned a victory in just his third career Cup start. Haley won the rain-postponed, rain-shortened race at Daytona, inheriting the lead after a 17-car accident decimated the field and before a lightning strike forced NASCAR to stop the race. Clint Bowyer  hit Austin Dillon from behind near the start of the third stage, creating the multi-car wreck and allowing Haley to sail past.

BLAINE, Minn. (AP) – Matthew Wolff is celebrating his first PGA victory just six weeks after capturing the NCAA title. Wolff made a 26-foot putt from the fringe for an eagle on the final hole to win the 3M Open at 21 under par, beating Collin Morikawa and Bryson DeChambeau by one stroke. The 20-year-old Wolff sank the dramatic eagle putt minutes before watching Morikawa just miss his eagle attempt from 22 feet.
