Pirates Take All 5 Against Brewers
PITTSBURGH (AP) - One late-inning rally wasn't enough for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Trailing and down to their final out on two occasions, the Pirates managed a 7-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers that gave them the first five-game sweep in the majors in nearly a dozen years. With two men on and two outs in the 10th inning and a steady rain turning into a downpour, Josh Bell made solid contact on a pitch from Dan Jennings (3-3). The crack of the bat was followed closely by bolt of lightning from the clouds as Bell left the batter's box. The ball got past center fielder Lorenzo Cain and bounced all the way to the wall, scoring Gregory Polanco easily from third. The relay throw beat Colin Moran to the plate but skipped off the pitcher's mound and through the legs of catcher Erik Kratz, giving Pittsburgh an improbable victory. Bell had gained a tactical advantage when earlier in the at-bat, Jennings had a slider slip out of his hand that nearly went for a wild pitch. With the tying run on third, Bell didn't think Jennings would risk throwing it again. "I was just dead-red heater," Bell said. "I got it and I put a good swing on it." The blown save was the first of the season for Jennings. An inning earlier, regular closer Corey Knebel blew his second of the season. After loading the bases with no outs, Knebel got Jordy Mercer to ground into a double play that scored one run, but then pinch-hitter David Freese hit a two-out triple off the right-field wall to tie the game. The Pirates' five-game sweep is the first in the majors since August 18-21, 2006, when the Yankees took five straight from Boston. It's the first five-game sweep for Pittsburgh since 1996. The Pirates head into the break as winners of six straight and eight of their last nine.

France Claims World Cup
MOSCOW (AP) - France is celebrating its second World Cup title after beating Croatia 4-2 in the highest-scoring World Cup final since 1966. Dramatic moments in the match included the first own-goal and the first video-reviewed penalty in a World Cup final, along with a brief pitch invasion orchestrated by Russian protest group Pussy Riot. Nineteen-year-old forward Kylian Mbappe scored the fourth goal, becoming just the second teenager to score in a World Cup final. The first was soccer great Pele, who was 17 when he scored twice Brazil's 5-2 win over Sweden in the 1958 final. The French players received their medals during a downpour that also drenched Russian President Vladimir Putin and the leaders of France and Croatia. Croatia was playing in its first World Cup final. France won the crown on home soil in 1998.

Wimbledon: Djokovic Claims 4th Title
LONDON (AP) - Novak Djokovic is the Wimbledon champion for a fourth time. Djokovic won his 13th Grand Slam title Sunday by defeating first-time Wimbledon finalist Kevin Anderson 6-2, 6-2, 7-6. Anderson nearly managed to extend the match, holding five set points to force a fourth set. Djokovic held steady, saving all five of those, then was as superior in the tiebreaker as he was most of the sun-drenched afternoon. It's Djokovic's first major trophy in more than two years. He has struggled with a painful right elbow that eventually required surgery, and as his losses accumulated, his ranking fell out of the top 20 for the first time in more than a decade. At No. 21, Djokovic is the lowest-ranked Wimbledon titlist since Goran Ivanisevic in 2001
