MLB:

Doug Fister pitched pretty well in his Red Sox debut, but the Angels took the rubber match of their three-game set by earning a 4-2 win at Fenway Park. Ben Revere had three singles and Kaleb Cowart drove in two runs for Los Angeles. Mitch Moreland and Jackie Bradley Jr. hit solo homers for the Bosox, who have dropped two straight at home since winning 10 of their previous 12.

The Yankees lost for the 10th time in 12 games as Adrian Beltre, Shin-Soo Choo and Drew Robinson each homered off Michael Pineda to give the Rangers a 7-0 lead in a 7-6 victory in the Bronx. Winning pitcher Nick Martinez was sailing until he allowed four runs in the fifth, including a three-run homer by Gary Sanchez. Ronald Torreyes hit his second homer of the season for the Yankees, who continue to share first place in the AL East with Boston.

Rene Rivera and Jay Bruce each hit two-run homers and collected three RBIs as the Mets thumped the Giants, 8-2 to complete a three-game sweep. Rivera actually homered twice and Curtis Granderson added a solo shot for the Mets, who outscored San Francisco 24-8 after getting swept by the Dodgers in a four-game set. Rafael Montero gave up just one run over 5 2/3 innings for his first big league win in three years.

Jorge Posada, Tim Raines and 31 other former players gathered at Yankee Stadium for the 71st Old Timers' Day. It was Posada's first since retiring after the 2011 season. The catcher called it "strange" to put on his gear again. Raines was honored by New York ahead of his Hall of Fame induction next month.

Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks will go on the disabled list after injuring his ribcage on the right side during a check swing in the first inning Sunday. He was told his recovery would take three to four weeks. Manager Joe Girardi said the Yankees might activate outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury from the disabled list by Monday.

Tim Tebow is moving up and heading south — to some very familiar territory. Tebow has been promoted to the New York Mets' high Class A affiliate in St. Lucie, Florida. The 29-year-old Tebow led the University of Florida to two national championships in football and won the 2007 Heisman Trophy during his stellar career with the Gators. Tebow entered his final game with Columbia game batting .222 with three home runs and 23 RBIs.

NASCAR:

Kevin Harvick ended a lengthy losing streak by dominating the road course at Sonoma Raceway. The former NASCAR champion had been winless in 20 races since Kansas last fall and has been overshadowed in this season of NASCAR's young new superstars. Clint Bowyer was second, followed by Brad Keselowski as Ford cards went 1-2-3. Martin Truex Jr. led the first stage and Jimmie Johnson took the second, but the strong start helped neither. Truex finished 37th following an engine failure, while Johnson ended up 13th.

IndyCar:

Scott Dixon won the IndyCar race at Road America to negate Team Penske's domination in qualifying. Dixon edged Josef Newgarden by 0.57 seconds to claim his first victory at Road America. It also gave the Chip Ganassi Racing veteran his first win since Watkins Glen last September. Dixon's 41st career victory moved him within one of tying Michael Andretti for third on the all-time list.

F1:

Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo has won the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, while Sebastian Vettel extended his championship lead over Lewis Hamilton. The Australian secured his fifth career win, while Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas overtook 18-year-old Canadian Lance Stroll's Williams in the closing meters to take second place. Vettel steered his Ferrari into fourth, just ahead of Hamilton's Mercedes.

Boxing:

Chael Sonnen won a unanimous decision over Wanderlei Silva in a much-delayed grudge match to win the light heavyweight bout in Bellator's debut at Madison Square Garden. Matt Mitrione knocked out Fedor Emelianenko in just 74 seconds to win the co-main event in a heavyweight bout.

Soccer:

Kansas City forward Dom Dwyer and midfielders Kenny Saief of Gent, Cristian Roldan of Seattle and Kelyn Rowe of New England have been picked for the U.S. roster for the CONCACAF Gold Cup and could make their national team debuts next month. Defenders Matt Miazga of Chelsea and Eric Lichaj of Nottingham Forest also were among the 23 players selected by U.S. coach Bruce Arena. Thirteen players have eight or fewer international appearances.

NCAA:

Myron Rolle has accomplished many things on and off the field. His biggest ones, though, might be coming up. Rolle's dream of becoming a doctor came to fruition on May 20 when he graduated from Florida State's College of Medicine. The former All-American safety and Rhodes Scholar moved to Boston at the beginning of June and will start his residency at the Harvard Medical School's neurosurgery program at Massachusetts General Hospital on July 1.

RPI has fired women’s hockey coach John Burke after 14 seasons with the team. The college announced the move in a statement Saturday afternoon.

Track & Field:

Three once-homeless sisters from New York City were guests of USA track and field at nationals after their rise to prominence in the sport. The Sheppard sisters got tips from some of their idols and Justin Gatlin gave a first-place medal he won to one of the girls. Their exploits have brought them medals of their own, TV appearances and a magazine cover. Their also helped get them a home. The girls and their mom moved out of a Brooklyn homeless shelter and into a two-bedroom apartment in April.

Tennis:

John McEnroe wants more anger in tennis. Not the tantrums he threw as a player. He wants to see young players get mad that they are still stuck behind Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and tennis' top 4 as they prepare for Wimbledon. Playing with passion helped McEnroe, author of the new book "But Seriously," become the No. 1 player in the world.

PGA:

Jordan Spieth completed his wire-to-wire win at the Travelers Championship. Spieth holed out from 60 feet for birdie from a greenside bunker on the first hole of a playoff with Daniel Berger. The 23-year-old Spieth joined Tiger Woods as the only players in the modern era with 10 victories before age 24.

Fred Couples picked up his second PGA Tour Champions title of the year and 13th overall by rallying to win the American Family Insurance Open. The 57-year-old Couples closed with a 6-under 66 at University Ridge for a two-stroke victory over Scott Verplank. Couples birdied six of the first 11 holes and finished at 15-under 201.

LPGA:

So Yeon Ryu has become the LPGA Tour's first two-time winner this season by taking the NW Arkansas Championship with a tournament-record 18-under 195 total. Ryu followed her course-record 10-under 61 with a 69 for a two-shot win over fellow South Korean player Amy Yang and Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn. Ryu has five LPGA Tour victories, also winning the major ANA Inspiration in April in a playoff with Lexi Thompson.
