MEGASPORTSNEWS.COM GAME COVERAGE

CLEVELAND, OHIO – Johnny Cueto won his third straight start and hot-hitting Laynce Nix homered for the third day in a row as the Cincinnati Reds beat their in-state rivals, the Cleveland Indians 6-4 Saturday night.

Cueto who is now 4-1, gave up just 4 hits and two runs in 6 innings as the Reds moved into first place in the NL Central by a half-game over St. Louis. The right-hander improved to 4-0 with a 2.18 ERA in his last five starts-including a one-hit shutout at Pittsburgh on May 11.

Indians starter Fausto Carmona was the tough-luck loser, he’s 4-2. He was the victim of three errors from his defense.

Trevor Crowe’s two-run single with the bases loaded in the ninth inning off Reds closer Francisco Cordero made it 6-4. Cordero was pitching for the third straight day and in a non-save situation, then got the Indians two best hitters. He struck out Shin-Soo Choo on a called third strike in a 10-pitch at bat. Austin Kearns, a former Red, lined the first pitch he saw to right fielder Jay Bruce to end the game. Cordero threw 36 pitches in the ninth inning. Reds manager Dusty Baker said he may not use Cordero on Sunday because he needs a breather.

Bruce was 4 for 4 with two RBI’s and Brandon Phillips had two doubles and three runs scored for Cincinnati, which is 18-7 since opening the season at 7-11.

Cincinnati has won 11 of 14 from their in-state rivals since 2008 and lead the all-time series 33-32.

Earnhardt was also featured on the Wheaties box in 1997. He’s the first NASCAR driver to appear twice.

The seven-time Cup champion, who died on a last-lap crash in the 2001 Daytona 500, will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday. Junior Johnson, Richard Petty, Bill France, Sr., and Bill France, Jr., round out the inagural class.

compiled from staff, wire and WTA Tour news

Maria Sharapova won her 22nd career title after a two-month layoff with a right elbow injury, defeating Kristina Barrois 7-5, 6-1 Saturday in the Strousbourg International final.

The title was Sharapova’s second on clay and a boost on the eve of the French Open, where she’s reached one semifinal and three quarterfinals.

Sharapova lost her first match in two months last week in Madrid, then accepted a late wild card to be the top seed in Strasbourg, where she rolled all the way to her second title of the 2010 season.

The 13th ranked Sharapova trailed 5-3 in the first set, then during a changeover, came out and won seven straight games.

Sharapova broke Barrois, a German and a first-time finalist, twice more in the second set and closed it out with a backhand winner.

The popular Russian tennis star had dropped to number 126 in the world in 2008 and rebounded to number 14 in 2009.

Byron Nelson Championship leaders: Beckman, Adams

compiled from staff and wire reports

The 2010 Byron Nelson Championship is a little different than in years past. This tournament is lacking the big names but it has a 16-year-old who made the cut; a 34-year-old rookie and the only recognizable golfer this week has been 47-year-old Steve Elkington.

16-year-old Jordan Spieth took time off from being a junior in high school to make his PGA Tour debut, becoming the first high school golfer to take on the pros in Irving, Texas since Tiger Woods in 1993. Woods didn’t make the cut in those days, but Spieth did it with ease on Friday, becoming the sixth youngest player to do so at a Tour event

47-year-old Steve Elkington got into the field as an alternate, when another golfer dropped out. He then shot a 66 to become part of a seven-way tie for the lead. He folloews with another 66, putting him two shots behind the lead.

Elkington first played the Byron Nelson back in 1987. He was once a star on Tour, winning 10 PGA events in the 1990′s, including a major. He hasn’t won since 1999, and hasn’t finished better than 54th on the money list, instead finishing in the 100′s.

34-year-old Blake Adams is a rookie who spent the last three years on the Nationwide Tour who has a career story worth listening, no matter how sad it is about perseverance. He was a part of that cluster at the top after the first round, then put up six birdies on his way to a 64 and a 10-under 130 and a share of the second-round lead.

Adams is from Georgia. He has had bad rotator cuffs and broken bones that have slowed his career. He has had a bulging disk in his back, bone spurs, a cyst and a hip that needs to be replaced.

Cameron Beckman and Jason Day are somewhat recognizable names.

Beckman won a PGA tour event for the first time a few months ago, but that was against a weak field and he has struggled every week since. He started Friday down around the cutline, but walked off the course with the lead.

Beckman finished his delayed opening round with a pair of birdies that turned a 1-over into a 1-under 69, then shot a 61, tying the TPC Four Seasons course record setting a personal best. He’s tied for first with Adams; Day is a stroke behind and Spieth is tied for 22nd, 3-under 137. Not bad for a teenager in a major golf tournament.

Day is a 22-year-old Australian who has been set back due to illnessess.

The 2010 winner of the Byron Nelson will not be a household name but will definitely have a unique story to tell.
