The Baggies will make an instant return to the Championship.
Jared Walsh hit a two-run double and the Los Angeles Angels held on to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 on Sunday afternoon in the rubber game of a three-game series in Anaheim, Calif. Angels starter Jose Quintana walked five and struck out six over four innings, allowing two hits and one run as six pitchers shut down the Dodgers on four hits. Right-hander Aaron Sledgers (2-0) got the win by pitching 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief.
Rory McIlroy shot 3-under-par 68 to win his first PGA tournament in more than 18 months on Sunday, finishing at 10-under 274 in capturing the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Country Club in Charlotte, N.C. McIlroy finished one shot ahead of Abraham Ancer, who shot a 5-under 66. McIlroy overtook 54-hold leader Keith Mitchell, who shot 72 and finished tied for third with Viktor Hovland (67) at 8-under par.
Americans Noah Lyles and Allyson Felix finished their races with a burst of speed while NFL star DK Metcalf outperformed expectations but came up short of making next month's Olympic trials at the Golden Games meet in Walnut, California on Sunday. The 200 meter world champion Lyles, the favorite to take home gold in the event at this summer's Tokyo Games, trailed for most of his race but found another gear late to catch countryman Kenny Bednarek over the final five meters to seal the win. "I don't always want to rely on my biggest strengths, I want to work on my weaknesses just as much," Lyles said when asked if he plans to rely on his impressive closing speed going forward.
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was left baffled after two handball calls went against his side in Sunday's enthralling 2-2 draw at home to Sevilla which left Los Blancos still trailing La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid in the title race. With the game poised at 1-1, Real's Eder Militao was penalised after a VAR review for touching the ball with his hand as he jumped to defend a cross. The decision meant that a penalty which had been awarded to the hosts moments earlier for a foul on Karim Benzema by Sevilla goalkeeper Bono was overruled.
Sevilla’s penalty came after the referee had initially awarded a spot-kick to Real for a foul on Karim Benzema.
The Northern Irishman suffered a bogey at the last but hung on to for his first win since 2019.
Manchester United extended rivals Manchester City's wait for the Premier League title for at least another two days as they came from a goal down to beat Aston Villa 3-1 on Sunday. At the bottom, West Bromwich Albion's hopes of avoiding relegation were ended as they went down 3-1 at Arsenal while West Ham United's top-four hopes were dealt a blow. City could have rubber-stamped their third title in five seasons since Pep Guardiola took over in 2016 by beating Chelsea 24 hours earlier but a 2-1 defeat kept United theoretically in the race.
Eden Hazard appeared to get the final touch on team-mate Toni Kroos’ wayward shot in stoppage time.
Paris St Germain's Ligue 1 title hopes took a major knock on Sunday when the defending champions were held to a 1-1 draw at Stade Rennes, leaving Lille holding a three-point advantage at the top with two games remaining. Neymar opened the scoring with a penalty on the stroke of halftime but Serhou Guirassy equalised in the 70th minute to leave PSG, who finished with 10 men after Presnel Kimpembe was sent off in the 87th minute, on 76 points. PSG, who were knocked out in the Champions League semi-finals by Manchester City on Tuesday, could face the prospect of finishing the season without a major trophy.
Quail Hollow would always have held a special place in the Rory McIlroy story anyway, but now the North Carolina layout surely deserves a chapter all of its very own after this dramatic turnaround. At the course where he first broke his US duck 11 years ago, McIlroy returned for another emotional win that could well go on to hold as much resonance. With a 68 - and a huge fright on the 18th - McIlroy fended off a high quality and, at stages, tightly packed PGA Tour leaderboard to lift his first title in 19 months. He arrived here at 15th in the world - his lowest ranking since 2009 - and on the back of two missed cuts at the Players and the Masters. But he left that worrying mediocrity behind, with a 10-under total one-shot success over Mexican Abraham Ancer that hauls him back up into the world's top 10. And with the USPGA taking place next week at a course where he also has a back story - McIlroy won the same major by eight shots the last time it was held at Kiawah Island in 2012 - everything seems possible for the Northern Irishman again. Could a hat-trick of Quail Hollow crowns be followed by a third Wanamaker Trophy, as he finally ends his seven-year majorless run? For now, that question can wait as McIlroy celebrates his 28th professional win, yet his first as a dad. Cheered on all the way by a passionate crowd who cared not a jot about nationality, McIlroy plainly relished performing again in a rowdy arena. McIlroy hated playing in the sterile environs of the behind-closed-doors era.
Juventus are facing a fight to qualify for the Champions League.
Real Madrid missed the chance to go top of La Liga after drawing 2-2 at home to Sevilla but earned a point when an own goal from Diego Carlos in added time added a final twist to a remarkable game containing two huge VAR decisions. The result left Atletico Madrid top of the standings with three games to go on 77 points, two ahead of second-placed Real and third-placed Barcelona. Sevilla are fourth on 71.
