Simone Biles sets all-time medal record at gymnastics worlds

By James Ellingworth, Associated Press STUTTGART, Germany (AP) — Everyone counts Simone Biles' medals except Simone Biles. Winning her 24th and 25th world championship medals in beam and floor Sunday put the United States gymnast top of the all-time medal charts for the championships. Biles won five gold medals this week. If she can repeat that at next year's Olympics it would be a feat no female gymnast has managed at a single Games. But for Biles, it's not about the statistics. "I can't be more thrilled with the performance that I put out at this world championships," she said. The medal record? "I'm not a number person." Aged 22, she's a hero to younger gymnasts who grew up watching her routines. "I'm second in the world after Simone Biles, and she's obviously so amazing. And to be second is super crazy," the 16-year-old U.S. gymnast Sunisa Lee said after taking silver behind Biles in Sunday's floor exercise. "I don't know how she's been doing this for so long." Biles' 24th medal came on the beam, breaking a tie for 23 with Belarusian gymnast Vitaly Scherbo. Biles scored 15.066 after a near-flawless routine, opting for a simpler dismount than the double-double she performed earlier in the championships. That dismount is a sore point for Biles, who introduced the double-double to competition this season and had the skill officially named after her at the worlds — there are four Biles skills now. She feels the International Gymnastics Federation didn't reward it with a high enough difficulty rating. "It's not worth the one-tenth (extra difficulty point). I'm sorry, it's just not," she said. When her score was announced, guaranteeing the medal record, Biles leaped up from her seat with a broad smile and punched the air. "I was really excited. I thought it was going to be at least a 14.8, 14.9, but to see 15, I was like, 'Well, that's pretty crazy,' so I was very proud," she said. China took silver and bronze with Liu Tingting on 14.433 and Li Shijia on 14.3, respectively. Biles won the floor exercise by a full point, scoring 15.133 despite a step out of bounds on one pass, and blew kisses to the audience after finishing her routine. Her U.S. teammate Lee won silver, her third medal of the championships, while Angelina Melnikova took bronze for Russia. Biles' winning routine came after a long wait when Brazilian gymnast Flavia Saraiva requested an inquiry into her score, during which time Biles sat on the edge of the floor. Her earlier gold medals came in the team event Tuesday, the individual all-around Thursday and the vault Saturday. A fifth place on uneven bars Saturday ended Biles' chances of winning a medal in all six events, which she did last year in her comeback world championships after a sabbatical in 2017. The uneven bars are historically Biles' weakest event, though she still won a world silver in 2018, and two-time world champion Nina Derwael of Belgium is the strongest contender to stop a gold-medal sweep by Biles and the U.S. women's team at the Olympics. Biles hasn't confirmed whether she'll continue to compete after next year's Olympics, so this week may have been her last at the world championships. Blowing kisses to the crowd wasn't meant as a goodbye to the competition, she said. "It's just a good floor routine, farewell to just the end of this world championship chapter here in Stuttgart," she said. Of her 25 career world medals, 19 are gold, against 12 of 23 for Scherbo. Earlier, Russia's Nikita Nagornyy won the men's vault for his third gold medal of the championships. He's the first European man to win the vault since 2010. Nagornyy scored an average 14.966 from his two vaults, beating his friend and Russian teammate Artur Dalaloyan into second place. The bronze went to Ukraine's Igor Radivilov. The 38-year-old Romanian Marian Dragulescu, a four-time world champion, secured qualification for his fifth Olympics by placing fourth. Britain won its second gold of the championships as Joe Fraser scored 15 points to win on parallel bars. Ahmet Önder was second for Turkey, with Japan's Kazuma Kaya third. Max Whitlock won Britain's first gold medal Saturday on pommel horse. Arthur Mariano won gold for Brazil on the high bar, scoring 14.9 ahead of Tin Srbic for Croatia. Dalaloyan took the bronze to end the championships with four medals......»»

Watson outduels Mahomes, leads Texans past Chiefs

By The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Deshaun Watson threw for 280 yards and a touchdown while running for two more, outdueling Chiefs counterpart Patrick Mahomes in a matchup of former first-round picks and leading the Houston Texans to a 31-24 victory over Kansas City on Sunday. Carlos Hyde added 116 yards rushing and a touchdown against the team that traded him to Houston (4-2) before the start of the season. DeAndre Hopkins hauled in nine passes for 55 yards. None was bigger than his last, when the Texans star made a sliding grab on fourth-and-3 from the Kansas City 27 with just under 2 minutes to go. That allowed Houston to run out the clock and deal the Chiefs (4-2) their second consecutive loss — both at Arrowhead Stadium. Mahomes, who was selected two spots ahead of Watson in the 2017 draft, finished with 273 yards passing and three touchdowns, though he also threw his first interception of the season. Star wide receiver Tyreek Hill returned to action for the first time since Week 1, when he broke his collarbone, to catch five passes for 80 yards and two of the Chiefs' scores. SEAHAWKS 32, BROWNS 28 CLEVELAND (AP) — Chris Carson scored on a 1-yard touchdown run with 3:30 left, Russell Wilson threw two TD passes and ran for one and Seattle rallied past mistake-prone Cleveland, improving to 3-0 on the road for the first time in 39 years. The Seahawks (5-1) gave up touchdowns on Cleveland's first three possessions before storming back. Wilson connected with Jaron Brown for two scores, and Seattle's cool quarterback scampered 16 yards for a TD. The Seahawks last won their first three road games in 1980, when they went 4-12. The Browns (2-4) were hurt by their own miscues. They couldn't overcome four turnovers, a blocked punt or quarterback Baker Mayfield's hip injury and fell to 0-3 at FirstEnergy Stadium. Mayfield threw three interceptions, raising his NFL-leading total to 11. Trying to bring the Browns back late, Mayfield, who went to the locker room in the third quarter to be evaluated, was picked off by Seattle's K.J. Wright with 2:41 remaining. SAINTS 13, JAGUARS 6 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Teddy Bridgewater found Jared Cook for a 4-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter, and New Orleans held on to beat Jacksonville and improve to 4-0 without injured starter Drew Brees. Coming off a 300-yard, four-touchdown performance against Tampa Bay, Bridgewater was less effective against the Jaguars (2-4). But he did enough for New Orleans' defense. Gardner Minshew was sacked twice, hurried often and threw his first interception as a starter. The rookie sensation completed 14 of 29 passes for 163 yards and was held without a touchdown for the first time this season. Bridgewater was 24 of 36 passing for 240 yards for the Saints (5-1). Michael Thomas had eight receptions for 89 yards, and Alvin Kamara finished with 31 yards rushing while playing through an ankle injury. 49ERS 20, RAMS 7 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo passed for 243 yards and ran for a touchdown, and San Francisco remained unbeaten with a dominant defensive performance against struggling Los Angeles. George Kittle had eight catches for 103 yards for the Niners (5-0), who held Los Angeles' once-unstoppable offense to 157 yards in coach Kyle Shanahan's first victory over Rams coach Sean McVay in a game in which both of these NFC West rivals were playing their starters. These longtime coaching colleagues' teams are going in opposite directions after this one-sided showdown at the Coliseum. San Francisco used its possession offense and a sturdy defense to stay alongside New England as the NFL's only unbeaten teams, while the Rams (3-3) are on their first three-game losing streak of McVay's 2½-year tenure. Tevin Coleman rushed for an early touchdown for San Francisco, while Garoppolo was mostly effective despite two turnovers. The Niners didn't score a touchdown in the final 27 minutes, but they're off to their fourth 5-0 start in franchise history, and their first since 1990. JETS 24, COWBOYS 22 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Sam Darnold gave the Jets' struggling offense a huge boost by throwing two touchdown passes in his return from mononucleosis, and New York held on to beat Dallas for its first win of the season. The Jets led 21-9 in the fourth quarter, but Dak Prescott and the top-ranked Cowboys offense stormed back — and had a chance to tie in the closing moments. Prescott ran for a 4-yard touchdown with 43 seconds left, making it a two-point game. Going for the tie, Prescott dropped back and was quickly met by a blitzing Jamal Adams and his pass on the conversion try fell short of Jason Witten in the end zone. The Cowboys (3-3) tried an onside kick, but Demaryius Thomas recovered for the Jets (1-4), who won for the first time under coach Adam Gase. It was the third straight loss for Dallas. Darnold, who missed three games while recovering from mononucleosis, finished 23 of 32 for 338 yards — including a 92-yard touchdown toss to Robby Anderson and a 5-yarder to Ryan Griffin. VIKINGS 38, EAGLES 20 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kirk Cousins threw to Stefon Diggs for three of his four touchdowns, racking up a season-high 333 passing yards as Minnesota ravaged Philadelphia's secondary. Diggs scored on plays in the first half that covered 51 and 62 yards, becoming the first player since Randy Moss in 2000 to post two touchdown receptions of 50-plus yards in one game for the Vikings (4-2). His most important catch came late in the third quarter, a double toe tap in the back of the end zone from 11 yards out that pushed the lead to 11 points after Carson Wentz and the Eagles (3-3) had pulled within 24-20 with 17 straight points. Cousins went 22 for 29 with one sack and one interception on a deflected ball. The Eagles have been badly missing starting cornerbacks Ronald Darby and Avonte Maddox, and Cousins took full advantage with a first half that looked at times like passing drills against the scout team. RAVENS 23, BENGALS 17 BALTIMORE (AP) — Lamar Jackson ran for a career-high 152 yards and a touchdown, threw for 236 yards and guided Baltimore past hapless Cincinnati. Jackson carried 19 times, including three kneel-downs, and finished tantalizingly short of Michael Vick's single-game record of 173 yards rushing by a quarterback. Jackson now has three career 100-yard rushing games, tied with Billy Kilmer for most by a quarterback in his first two seasons since 1950. Regardless of where Jackson went, the Bengals (0-6) were usually a step behind. Jackson was also adept when throwing, going 21 for 33 without an interception. Cincinnati jumped on top when Brandon Wilson took the opening kickoff 92 yards for a score, but Jackson responded quickly. Baltimore (4-2) finished with 497 yards of offense, and the Ravens retained sole possession of first place in the AFC North. PANTHERS 37, BUCCANEERS 26 LONDON (AP) — Christian McCaffrey scored two touchdowns and Carolina turned five interceptions by Jameis Winston into 17 points as the Panthers beat Tampa Bay. After starting the season with two straight losses with hobbled Cam Newton at quarterback, the Panthers (4-2) have been on a roll with Kyle Allen at quarterback thanks to McCaffrey's big plays and an opportunistic defense that had a franchise record-tying seven takeaways on the day. Both of those factors came up big on Carolina's first trip to London in front of a large contingent of Panthers fans for what was designated as a home game for the Bucs (2-4). Winston did most of his damage after the game got out of hand late, throwing for 400 yards with a 10-yard TD pass to Cameron Brate in the fourth quarter that gave him 100 touchdown passes in his career. REDSKINS 17, DOLPHINS 16 MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Rookie Terry McLaurin caught two touchdown passes and Washington stopped Miami's two-point conversion attempt with 6 seconds left in a matchup between winless teams. Adrian Peterson more than doubled his season rushing total with 118 yards for Bill Callahan in his first game as interim coach. Washington intercepted Josh Rosen twice and sacked him five times before he was benched at the start of the fourth quarter with the Dolphins trailing 17-3. Rosen's replacement, Ryan Fitzpatrick, sparked a rally and led two touchdown drives, including a 75-yard march that began with 2:02 left. But after Fitzpatrick hit DeVante Parker for an 11-yard score to cut the deficit to one point, rookie coach Brian Flores decided to go for two. Running back Kenyan Drake dropped Fitzpatrick's quick pass with several defenders between him and the goal line. Washington (1-5) looked like a different team after firing coach Jay Gruden, but the caliber of the opposition had something to do with that. The Dolphins (0-5) remained winless under Flores but helped their chances of securing the No. 1 draft pick in April. BRONCOS 16, TITANS 0 DENVER (AP) — Denver's swarming defense sent Marcus Mariota to the bench and Tennessee to its fourth loss in five games. The Broncos (2-4) had seven sacks in a game for the first time since their 2015 Super Bowl season and they picked off three passes. Chris Harris Jr. and Justin Simmons intercepted Mariota, who was sacked three times and was replaced by Ryan Tannehill after Simmons' interception led to a 2-yard touchdown run by Phillip Lindsay that made it 13-0. Tannehill was sacked four times and picked off by Kareem Jackson on Tennessee's final drive, which reached the Denver 5-yard line before two offensive penalties and a sack pushed the Titans back to the 30-yard line. Both Denver and Tennessee (2-4) were 2 of 14 on third down, leading to 17 punts. CARDINALS 34, FALCONS 33 GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Kyler Murray threw for 340 yards and three touchdowns and Arizona built a big lead over Atlanta, lost it, and then rallied to win. Atlanta looked like it would tie the game with 1:53 left after Matt Ryan hit Devonta Freeman on a 12-yard touchdown pass, but 44-year-old Matt Bryant missed left on the extra point, and the Cardinals ran out the clock from there. The Cardinals (2-3-1) took a 34-27 lead with 5:12 remaining on David Johnson's 14-yard touchdown catch from Murray. Johnson made a great adjustment to his route on the slightly underthrown ball, catching the ball between two defenders. The Cardinals won at home for the first time since last Oct. 28. The Falcons (1-5) have lost four straight games......»»

Brandon Vera gets TKOd by Aung La N Sang at ONE: Century

TOKYO, JAPAN - Fil-American Brandon "The Truth" Vera absorbed the first loss of his ONE Championship career at the hands of reigning ONE Light Heavyweight World Champion "The Burmese Python" Aung La N Sang of Myanmar at ONE: Century, Sunday evening at the Ryogoku Kokugikan here.  Vera, who dropped down to light heavyweight, came out aggressive, as he landed solid leg kicks on the smaller Aung La. The MMA hero of Myanmar was more than willing to oblige, as he stood toe-to-toe with Vera, landing solid shots of his own.  The two hard-hitting stars went back-and-forth until the end of the opening round.  In the second frame, Aung La begin to push the pace as he started to connect on Vera, until a succession of elbows had the reigning ONE Heavyweight World Champion on jelly legs.  Sensing that Vera was in trouble, Aung La swarmed Vera, landing big punch after big punch until the "The Truth" crumbled to his knees. There, Aung La finished the job with piston-like left hands, prompting the referee to step in an stop the bout.  Official stoppage time came in at 3:23 of the second round. .....»»

Scherzer no-hit try into 7th, Nats top Cards, lead NLCS 2-0

By Jay Cohen, Associated Press ST. LOUIS (AP) — Max Scherzer followed Aníbal Sánchez's near no-hitter with a try of his own and the stingy Washington Nationals beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1 on Saturday for a 2-0 lead in the NL Championship Series. Scherzer didn't allow a hit until Paul Goldschmidt led off the seventh inning with a single that left fielder Juan Soto played conservatively with a one-run lead. A day earlier, Sánchez held the Cardinals hitless until José Martínez had a pinch-single with two down in the eighth. Sánchez and Scherzer also began the 2013 ALCS with consecutive no-hit bids of at least five innings for Detroit against Boston. Scherzer, a St. Louis native who played college ball for the University of Missouri, struck out 11 and walked two in seven innings. It doesn't get any easier for St. Louis, either. Ace Stephen Strasburg gets the ball for the wild-card Nationals when the best-of-seven series moves to Washington for Game 3 on Monday night. Jack Flaherty pitches for the Cards. St. Louis got another solid performance from Adam Wainwright, who struck out 11 in 7 1/3 innings. But after getting only one hit in the opener, the Cardinals' inconsistent lineup managed just three hits against Scherzer and the Washington bullpen. The NL Central champions got their first run of the series when center fielder Michael A. Taylor misplayed Martínez's pinch-hit liner into an RBI double with two out in the eighth. But Dexter Fowler flied out on Sean Doolittle's next pitch. Patrick Corbin got the first out of the ninth before Daniel Hudson closed for his third save of the playoffs. The right-hander was reinstated from the postseason paternity list before the game after he missed the series opener to be with his wife, Sara, for the birth of their third child, a girl named Millie. Corbin is expected to start Game 4 for the Nationals on Tuesday night. Scherzer, who has pitched two no-hitters in the regular season, has a record five career postseason no-hit bids of at least five innings, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The three-time Cy Young Award winner came closest to finishing in Game 3 of the 2017 NL Division Series, getting one out in the seventh inning before allowing a hit. There have only been two postseason no-hitters. Don Larsen threw a perfect game for the New York Yankees against Brooklyn in the 1956 World Series, and Roy Halladay pitched a no-hitter for the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2010 NL Division Series. The Cardinals got one baserunner into scoring position while Scherzer was on the mound. Kolten Wong walked with one out in the first and stole second, but Goldschmidt and Marcell Ozuna struck out. After Goldschmidt's hit, Ozuna struck out again and Yadier Molina bounced into an inning-ending double play on Scherzer's final pitch of the afternoon. Washington went ahead to stay when Taylor homered on Wainwright's first pitch of the third. The Nationals added two more on Adam Eaton's two-run double down the first-base line with one out in the eighth. TRAINER'S ROOM Nationals: C Kurt Suzuki returned to the starting lineup after being sidelined by a head injury. He got hurt by a foul ball that ricocheted during Washington's clinching victory in Game 5 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Wednesday night. ...

MPBL: Batino is perfect as Rizal is no match for Bataan

The Bataan Risers continue their revival with a 78-57 home win against the Rizal Xentro Mall Golden Coolers on Saturday night in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season. Ryan Batino copped best player of the game honors with 13 points, 5 from 5 from the field in front of the Risers fans in the Bataan People's Center. "Since the last game consistent kami sa pasahan, nagtiwala kami sa isa't isa," said Batino, who co-topscored for Bataan alongside Chito Jaime. Bataan go back above .500 at 9-8 while it's yet another loss for Rizal, taking them to 3-12 in the North Division. The Risers fired in the last seven points of the first half with 5 from Joseph Nalos to take a 37-31 halftime lead. In the third quarter with Bataan up 43-33 Nalos was thrown out of the game for a rash punch at Jack Hoyohoy after the Golden Cooler laid a hard screen on him. Bataan reeled off an 11-0 run late in the period and lead 60-43 going into the fourth. Rizal were unable to mount any challenge in the final period as Bataan cruised to victory. Jordan Rios led the visitors with 12 points. In the opening game of the doubleheader, the Pasig Sta. Lucia Realtors weathered a furious late fightback to trip the Bicol Volcanoes LCC Stores, 75-73. A trio of Realtors provided the bulk of the scoring for Pasig, with Jeric Teng leading with 20 markers and Robbie Manalang and Leo Najorda compiling 17 and 16 respectively. Pasig led a listless Bicol squad 40-32 at the half and when Fonso Gotladera pocketed a jumper for a 71-54 lead for the Realtors five minutes left in the fourth, the game looked done and dusted. But Bicol's Ronjay Buenafe would have nothing of it. The ex-pro connected on four straight three-pointers as part of a stunning 19-2 run capped by a Hafer Mondragon trey to square the game at 73-73. However, Pasig would have the last laugh, with Leo Najorda knocking in a jumper to complete the scoring with 25 seconds left. Buenafe had one last chance to win the game but his last-second three-pointer fell short. Alwyn Alday led Bicol with 21 points. It's a sixth straight loss for Monel Kallos' Volcanoes who are slipping out of the playoff bunch at 8-11. Pasig on the other hand are now sporting an 11-5 card, good for 4th in the North Division.                .....»»
