It was her first major since the LPGA Championship in 2007, and her second straight tournament win after the Safeway Classic this month. This was the first year that Evian counted as the fifth and final major of the year on the women's calendar.

The result of Monday's game mattered little as Brooklawn's impressive run had already sealed the team's berth in Tuesday's championship game. The Brookers played Petaluma (Calif.) on Monday night in Shelby, N.C. The game ended too late for this edition. Brooklawn entered Monday 8-0 and has won all three of its games in Shelby. Tuesday's championship game will be the Brookers' second-straight appearance. They fell last year to New Orleans. Brooklawn clinched the berth Sunday behind the pitching of Tyler Mondile as well as the bats of Anthony Harrold and Pete Farlow.

MOSCOW - Brilliant baton-passing was the key to Team USA's world-record 40.82-second women's 4x100-meter relay triumph at the 2012 London Olympic Games. Hoping for a reprise on the concluding day of the 14th World Championships of Track and Field, a completely new American quartet got no such thing Sunday at Luzhniki Stadium. With a mistimed second exchange between second runner Alexandria Anderson of Austin, Texas, and English Gardner of Voorhees running third, the Americans lost critical ground and momentum to front-running Jamaica and appeared to have wound up third in 42.75, behind Jamaica's winning 41.29, a World Championships record, and France's silver-medal 42.73.

MOSCOW - Nia Ali, a former star at West Catholic, has run her way into the semifinals of the women's 100-meter hurdles at the 14th World Championships of Track and Field. Ali reached the Saturday semis with a 13.19-second run in the opening round Friday morning. But even though she came to Moscow owning the third best time in the world this year, a 12.48 at the USA Nationals in Des Moines, Iowa, seven weeks ago, her further progress here is clouded by injury. "I've got hamstring trouble," she said after her race at Luzhniki Stadium, site of the 1980 Olympic Games.

ORLANDO - As much as the Arena League fawns over Kurt Warner, the Super Bowl champion never won an ArenaBowl. Quirky stat? Maybe. But quarterbacks are defined by championships - no matter the level - as much as passing yards. And a championship is the one thing that has eluded Soul quarterback Dan Raudabaugh. Only 19 quarterbacks have won an ArenaBowl, according to the arenafan.com website. While it's certain that Raudabaugh and his Arizona Rattlers counterpart, Nick Davila, want a shot at playing in the NFL on Sundays, a win Saturday would be a defining moment in the arena football section of their playing resum├ęs.

DON'T COUNT out the Temple Owls, even the golfing ones. Down two holes with four to play, Temple sophomore Brandon Matthews stormed back to top Matt Pinizzotto in the Round of 64 of the 113th U.S. Amateur Championship yesterday at Brookline, Mass. After Pinizzotto, of Salinas, Calif., won four straight holes (11th through 14th) to turn a two-hole deficit into a two-hole lead, Matthews downed a birdie putt at 15 to begin his comeback. "I saw the line and knocked it in," said Matthews, who would go on to win Nos. 16 and 18 to advance, 1-up.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Two years ago at the PGA Championship in Atlanta, Jason Dufner led by five with four holes to play. Somehow, he ended up losing in a three-hole playoff to Keegan Bradley. Don't ask. He was 34 at the time. It could have changed his world. Instead, he had to find a way to move on with his career. Last season, the Auburn product got his first two PGA Tour wins, the first coming in a sudden-death playoff. And in the seven majors since his meltdown, he hasn't finished worst than 31st.
