Bruins Force Game 7, Durant Practices And Could Play, Nats Go Yard Four Times In A Row, McIlroy’s 61 Gives Him Win, Nadal Wins 12th French Title

There will be a Game 7 for the Stanley Cup after the Boston Bruins defeated the St. Louis Blues on Sunday by a score of 5-1. Tuuka Rask was the hero for the Bruins, making 28 saves along the way to push it toward a deciding game back in Boston. In games in which they are facing elimination, Rask is now 3-0 in this postseason, a great omen come Wednesday night when it’s all said and done. A first period goal from Brad Marchand on a power play stood up for them until the third, when they outscored the Blues 4-1 to run away with it.

Kevin Durant might just be closing in on seeing some on-court action for himself after the forward practiced with the Golden State Warriors ahead of a crucial Game 5 in Toronto on Monday night. Durant has been out since the second round of the playoffs after injuring his calf against the Houston Rockets, and he has been sorely missed in this Finals series with Raptors. With his team trailing three games to one, the Warriors look as if they may have no choice but to call upon the ‘questionable’ superstar for what is an obvious elimination game.

The Washington Nationals made a massive bit of history on Sunday afternoon, and in doing so, they opened up their game against the San Diego Padres in the process. With the score at 1-1 in the eighth, Howie Kendrick stepped up to the plate and bombed a pitch over the wall to hand them the lead. Trea Turner, Adam Eaton, and Anthony Rendon then would each consecutively also hit a home run, making it four men in a row and putting them up 5-1 in a game in which they ultimately took 5-2. By doing so, the Nationals became the first team in history to have this feat occur twice. The other time it happened was in July of 2017 against the Milwaukee Brewers. They remain eight games back in the NL East, however.

Rory McIlroy wasn’t interested in a close, hard fought win on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open. The Northern Irishman was keen on running away and hiding as quick as could, and he did just that by dusting off the field with a 61 to record a seven-shot victory over the rest of the field and pen his fourth career 61. It was his first time playing the tournament, and it now means he has won the US, Canadian, and British Opens already. He made five birdies in the first seven holes to scurry away after beginning the day in a three-way tie for the lead. If he plays that way next week, we could be seeing him take another US Open trophy along with him.

It should come as no surprise, but Rafael Nadal remains the King of Clay after he triumphed over Dominic Thiem in the French Open 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1, crushing his young, talented opponent in the final two sets to show who truly owned Roland Garros by not allowing him to get any momentum going whatsoever. By virtue of the win, the Spaniard wrapped up his 12th French Open title and improved his overall record at the tournament to 93-2. He has now won each of the last three and has 18 total Grand Slam trophies as a result of the win, two off the pace of rival Roger Federer’s 20.
