UNDATED (AP) – The Atlanta Braves have continued their winning streak, but the Philadelphia Phillies have tasted defeat for the first time since May 31. Adam Duvall homered twice off Jose Quintana, William Contreras and Matt Olson also connected, and the Braves won their 11th straight game, 5-3 over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Christian Walker had three hits and three RBIs, Jake McCarthy homered as the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Phillies 13-1 to end Philadelphia’s nine-game winning streak.

SONOMA, Calif. (AP) – Daniel Suarez has become the first Mexican-born driver to win a NASCAR Cup Series race at Sonoma Raceway. The 30-year-old Mexican driver held off Chris Buescher yesterday to claim his first victory in his 195th career start. He also drove his Trackhouse Racing Chevrolet to the third Cup Series victory for this 2-year-old team co-owned by former driver Justin Marks and music star Pitbull. Suarez got past Buescher and took charge on this hilly road course in Northern California wine country early in the final stage.

TORONTO (AP) – Rory McIlroy won the RBC Canadian Open on Sunday and gave the PGA Tour a strong response to the start of the Saudi-funded LIV Golf Invitational, closing with an 8-under 62 to win a wild race to the finish with Justin Thomas and Tony Finau. McIlroy finished at 19-under 261 at St. George’s for a two-stroke victory. Finau shot a 64 to finish second alone. Thomas bogeyed the final two holes for a 64 to finish third at 14 under. Justin Rose matched the tournament- and course-record with a 60 – with three eagles and three bogeys – to tie for fourth.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) – Brooke Henderson eagled the first playoff hole and beat Lindsey Weaver-Wright to capture the ShopRite LPGA Classic for her 11th win on tour. Henderson shot a bogey-free, final-round 7-under 64 at Seaview Hotel and Golf Club to win for the first time in a year. The 24-year-old Canadian rallied from a four-shot deficit entering the final round of the 54-hole tournament to finish at 12-under 201.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Thongchai Jaidee became the first Thai winner in PGA Tour Champions history Sunday, closing with a 4-under 68 for a one-stroke victory in the American Family Insurance Championship.
