A new story from AP News Radio
AP sports I'm Tom merriam. This year's NBA Eastern Conference final will feature a rematch of last year's the Celtics will play the heat starting Wednesday for a trip to the finals after blowing past the 76ers one 1288 in game 7 of their conference semifinal series. Jayson Tatum exploded for a game 7 record 51 points. Just being in another game 7, being able to come back home in front of our fans. I was really excited. Just for the moment. Stanley Cup playoffs, the golden knights are in the west finals for the third time in their 6th seasons by eliminating the oilers 5 to two in game 6. A hat trick for Jonathan Marshall. Baseball, the Blue Jays made it a three game sweep of the braves as Danny Jansen hit a two run single in the bottom of the 9th. It's a good team over there, so I had a feeling it was gonna be, you know, big blows going back and forth throughout the series and stuff. So just kept at it. The braves fourth straight loss combined with the Dodge's 5th straight win gave LA, the NL's best record. Tony Gosselin pitched the first 5 innings of Sunday shutout when over the Padres. They're a really good lineup, you know, can't take any pitches off, you know, top to bottom they all hit well. So we were fortunate enough to come out of this one without any without any runs. Another MLB Mother's Day action, the mets and national splitted double header, single game victories for the NL's cardinals, brewers, Diamondbacks, rockies, Marlins and pirates, and the ailes Astros, rangers, twins, tigers, guardians, and rays who beat the Yankees for the fourth time in 7 games over the last ten days for manager Kevin cash. I'm exciting ball games here. For 7, it seems like any team could win any of one of the ball games. Happy that we came up on top today. NASCAR, William Byron took advantage of a pileup to win the Goodyear 400 at Darlington in overtime. I don't think we really thought we could win in the first restart when there was that big wreck. Then we started to get a glimmer of hope, and then we started to go to work on, okay, what are the things we need to do to win it? Golfing was quite a day for Jason Day as he shot a final round 62 to win the Byron Nelson classic. Tom Arian AP sports.
