Moran & Musgrove Lead Pirates Over Padres
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Colin Moran hit a three-run home run and finished with four RBIs, and Joe Musgrove beat his hometown Padres for the second time in as many seasons as the Pittsburgh Pirates won 6-4 Sunday to take three of four. Musgrove (3-4) was the second straight alum of Grossmont High in suburban El Cajon to beat the Padres. Steven Brault won Saturday night in relief of opener Montana DuRapau. The big right-hander took a one-hit shutout into the seventh before the Padres broke out for four runs, the big blow coming on Hunter Renfroe's three-run home run. Greg Garcia, who played at Valhalla High in El Cajon, was the first Padres baserunner to reach second against Musgrove when he hit a leadoff double. He scored on a single by Alex Dickerson, who played at suburban Poway High. With one out, Eric Hosmer hit a comebacker and Musgrove tried to go to second but his throw was wide for an error. Renfroe followed with a shot into the Padres' bullpen beyond the left-center fence to pull the Padres to 5-4. It was his 11th homer. Moran got his fourth RBI in the eighth when he drove in Bryan Reynolds, who doubled. Musgrove retired his first six batters and didn't allow a hit until Hosmer singled to left leading off the fifth. He allowed four runs, three earned, and four hits in 6 1/3 innings, with four strikeouts and one walk. Felipe Vazquez pitched the ninth for his 13th save.

W&J Tops Rowan to Win Regional Title
SALISBURY, Md. - Seniors Dante Dalesandro and Mullen Socha each homered and drove in a pair of runs leading Washington & Jefferson to a 6-5 win over #10 Rowan in the championship game of the Salisbury Regional. Dalesandro led off the bottom of the first with a solo homerun, moments after the Profs had taken a 2-0 in the top of the frame. Three batters later, James Artale tied the game with an RBI groundout. Socha homered in the third, putting the Presidents up, 4-2. After Rowan tied the game in the top of the fifth, Dalesandro singled home one run and Josh Crummer's basehit drove in Dalesandro with the eventual game-winner. Michael Zito worked 3.2 innings of relief, holding the Profs to four hits and one unearned run to get the win. Mitchell Tauffer and Clay Martin worked the final 2.1 innings, allowing Rowan two hits and no runs. Martin earned his 10th save. W&J will play Misericordia (Dallas, PA) in the NCAA Division III Super Regionals Friday & Saturday. The site of the best-of-three series will be announced later Sunday. We are planning to carry the Super Regionals on WJPA-AM (1450) starting ahead of the 12 noon first pitch Friday.

NHL; Schwartz leads Blues to 3-2 lead
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - It's been 49 years since the St. Louis Blues last appeared in a Stanley Cup final, a series that ended with Boston defenseman Bobby Orr flying over the stick of Noel Picard after scoring the winning goal 40 seconds into overtime. The Blues are one win away from a finals rematch with the Bruins after taking a three-games-to-two lead in the Western Conference final. Jaden Schwartz registered a hat trick and Vladimir Tarasenko scored on a penalty shot as the Blues punished the Sharks, 5-0 at San Jose. St. Louis held a 1-0 lead before Schwartz and Tarasenko scored during the first seven minutes of the second period. The Blues dominated the middle period by outshooting San Jose, 20-6. Schwartz also tallied twice in the third period to become the first player since Detroit's Johan Franzen in 2008 to register two hat tricks in the same postseason. Oskar Sundqvist provided the eventual game-winner in the opening stanza, and rookie Jordan Binnington needed to make just 21 saves for his first career playoff shutout. Martin Jones stopped 35 shots for the Sharks, who will try to stave off elimination when they visit St. Louis for Game 6 on Tuesday.

NBA; Raptors Outlast Bucks In Double Overtime
TORONTO (AP) - The Toronto Raptors have guaranteed themselves a trip back to Milwaukee after taking Game 3 of the NBA's Eastern Conference finals. Kawhi Leonard scored eight of his game-high 36 points in double-overtime to lead the Raptors to a 118-112 victory over the Bucks. Pascal Siakam delivered 25 points and 11 rebounds as Toronto pulled within two games to one in the series. Siakam also missed a pair of free throws with 7.4 seconds left in regulation that could have iced the game for the Raptors. The Raptors led by double-digits in the first half, but the Bucks pulled even by allowing just 38 points in the second half. Norman Powell scored 19 points before fouling out, and Marc Gasol had 16 points and 12 rebounds Giannis Antetokounmpo had 12 points and 23 rebounds for the Bucks, but he shot just 5-for-16 before fouling out 36 seconds into the second OT. Game 4 is Tuesday in Toronto.

Koepka Claims PGA Championship Again
FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Brooks Koepka was able to win the PGA Championship for the second straight year, but he certainly made things interesting after dominating the first three rounds. Koepka carried a hefty seven-stroke advantage into the final round before completing a two-shot victory over Dustin Johnson. Koepka closed with a 4-over 74 that included four straight bogeys on the back nine. Johnson birdied No. 15 to get within one stroke of the lead, but he followed that with back-to-back bogeys to fall back. The 29-year-old Koepka will replace Johnson as the world's top-ranked golfer after joining Tiger Woods as the only repeat winners of the PGA Championship since it became a stroke-play tournament. Koepka finished 8 under in his fourth major title. Britain's Matt Wallace shot a 72 to finish in a third-place tie with Americans Jordan Spieth and Patrick Cantlay.
