Manchester United claim first Europa League title


Paul Pogba's deflected effort and Henrikh Mkhitaryan's improvised finish proved the difference as United collected their second trophy of the season following their League Cup triumph in February.

Cueto, Lester get the nod as Cubs host Giants


I like this to be a solid pitching battle, with Moore and the Giants coming out on top. "I put some good swings on the ball, got a nice 'W.' Yeah, it feels good".

Kyrie Irving, LeBron James too much for Boston Celtics in Game 4

The talk of the series so far has been focused on LeBron James , and rightfully so, but Kevin Love is performing on levels we haven't seen in some time.

No such thing as garbage time for Cleveland Cavaliers

James finished with just 11 points and didn't score at all in the final 16 minutes of the game as Boston pushed back from a 21-point deficit to move the series to 2-1.
