Gleyber Torres hit a bases-loaded infield single with no outs in the 11th inning, lifting the New York Yankees to a dramatic 4-3 victory over the Washington Nationals on Saturday. The Yankees struck out 14 times against Nationals starter Max Scherzer before twice tying the game against Washington closer Brad Hand. With DJ LeMahieu on second base to start the 11th inning, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton drew walks off Tanner Rainey (0-2) to load the bases.
MADRID (Reuters) -Alexander Zverev avenged his defeat by Dominic Thiem in last year's U.S. Open final in clinical fashion on Saturday, beating the Austrian 6-3 6-4 to reach the final of the Madrid Open. Zverev, who beat top seed and tournament favourite Rafa Nadal in straight sets in the quarter-finals on Friday, will meet Matteo Berrettini in Sunday's final after the Italian beat Norway's Casper Ruud 6-4 6-4 in the second semi-final. Germany's Zverev, who was champion in Madrid in 2018, made a strong start, breaking Thiem early in each set in what turned out to be a routine victory, despite a swirling wind at Caja Magica.
Bryson DeChambeau shot a third-round 68 on Saturday in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship, but that's not the story he'll tell about this day years from now. Instead, he'll talk about how he had to fly from Dallas back to Charlotte, N.C., to play the round at Quail Hollow Golf Club. "We did a lot of scrambling last night to get back," DeChambeau, 27, said.
Hundreds of Manchester City fans gathered outside the Etihand Stadium for a Premier League title celebration that proved premature as Chelsea ruined the script with a last-minute 2-1 victory on Saturday. City manager Pep Guardiola left out a host of first-team regulars for a game regarded as a dress rehearsal for the Champions League final and paid the price as he was made to wait a little longer to seal his third title in four seasons. Raheem Sterling gave City the lead in the 44th minute and Sergio Aguero had the chance to double their lead before halftime but his attempted Panenka penalty misfired and Edouard Mendy made a simple catch.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola refused to criticise striker Sergio Aguero for his dreadful failed attempt at a chipped penalty in Saturday's 2-1 Premier League defeat to Chelsea. City had just taken a 1-0 lead when they were awarded a chance to make it 2-0 at the break after a penalty was awarded from Billy Gilmour's challenge on Gabriel Jesus in the box. Aguero, City's all-time top scorer who is leaving the club at the end of this season, attempted a "Panenka" penalty designed to fool the goalkeeper with a chip straight down the middle.
