Scott McNeil worked diligently before the start of the 2015 golf season just so he'd have a chance to contend in the Golf Association of Philadelphia's Middle-Amateur Championship. When he finished as the medalist in the May 11 U.S. Open local qualifier at Trump National-Philadelphia, he figured he'd have a decent chance. On a damp, raw day Thursday at St. Davids Golf Club, he found out he was right. McNeil, 29, kept his focus despite a pair of front-nine double bogeys and hit two big shots on the back nine that led to birdies, giving him just enough room to grab a 1-stroke victory in the 32d Middle-Amateur, the season's first major.

Michael Brown wasn't sure what to expect in Monday's qualifying round for the U.S. Open at Whitford Country Club, especially playing in the windy and unseasonably cold conditions. But the 40-year-old public-links player from Cheltenham had all facets of his game working for much of the day and earned medalist honors with a par 72, leading five qualifiers into next month's final stage for a chance to play in the U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club. With temperatures in the 50s and the wind blowing golf balls into Whitford's unforgiving rough, scores were high.

Richard Hamilton gave the Detroit Pistons the driving force they needed with their All-Star point guard on the bench. Hamilton set the tempo by scoring 15 of his 27 points during one first-quarter stretch, and the Pistons hardly missed Chauncey Billups last night in their 92-68 victory over the New Orleans Hornets in Oklahoma City. "I think that our game plan coming into the game was to try to hit first more than anything. Be the aggressor. Don't be backpedaling," Hamilton said.

The New Orleans Arena was mostly empty by the end of the third quarter, when Denver led 89-50 on its way to the most lopsided playoff win in franchise history. It was also the worst playoff loss ever for the Hornets. "I wouldn't have thought that we would win by 58 points," Anthony said.

The 76ers' horrid start to the season is becoming a distant memory. A 93-92 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center was their second consecutive win and third in four games. That's not bad for a team that opened the season with 17 straight losses. Michael Carter-Williams drove the lane and scored on an underhand scoop to give the Sixers a 93-92 lead with 9.9 seconds left. On the ensuing possession, Indiana power forward David West backed down Luc Mbah a Moute before his turnaround jumper clanked off the rim. Pacers center Roy Hibbert then was unable to tip in the miss, and Sixers rookie Nerlens Noel got the rebound as time expired.

ATLANTA - As the first combined no-hitter in 132 years of Phillies baseball neared its strange conclusion, a rolling laundry cart inside the visitors' clubhouse at Turner Field became an ice bucket. It held six champagne bottles. One for every Phillies pitcher and catcher who authored history, plus an extra for good measure. This accomplishment gave a hapless team the chance to celebrate something. The Phillies have stumbled together for five months, so they toasted together after Monday's 7-0 win over the Atlanta Braves.

IN 1993, PHILLIES general manager Lee Thomas had the equivalent of a .400 season for a general manager. While other teams had spent lavishly on free agents during an insanely busy winter meetings - Barry Bonds, David Cone and Dave Stewart were among the players who switched teams for huge deals - Thomas held almost daily mini-news conferences in a hotel suite announcing what seemed at the time to be small trades and small free-agent signings. Pete Incaviglia, Jim Eisenreich, David West, Danny Jackson: All had career years or huge bounceback seasons in 1993.
