Matthieu Pavon made an 8-foot putt for a dramatic birdie on No. 18 at Torrey Pines South for a 1-shot victory in the Farmers Insurance Open on Saturday that made him the first Frenchman to collect on the PGA Tour.

It is amazing,” the PGA Tour rookie, 31, stated moments after the victory. Pavon took further stock of his historic accomplishment after he had an […]

Stalled out: Pistons’ 26th straight loss ties NBA record

Detroit Pistons players sat in stunned silence in one corner of the locker room, stared blankly ahead in another. The worst stretch of basketball in their lives now ranks as one of the worst in NBA history. Detroit matched the NBA record for the longest losing streak in a single season, falling 126-115 to the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night for its 26th consecutive loss. “None of us went through this, ever,” center Isaiah Stewart said. “This is the hardest thing probably all of us went through, especially being in the pros.” The Pistons tied the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers and 2013-14 Philadelphia 76ers and dropped to 2-27 in their first season […]

Max Verstappen’s 2023 officially the most dominant F1 season ever

With his 17th victory of the Formula One season, Triple World Champion Max Verstappen became the most dominant driver in the history of the sport during a campaign. The greatest season win percentage, until this Sunday’s São Paulo Grand Prix at Interlagos, was 75% for the late Italian champion Alberto Ascari, who won six of the eight world championship races with Ferrari in 1952. With 20 races under his belt, Verstappen’s percentage is at 85%. Should he lose the final two races of the season in Las Vegas and Abu Dhabi, he will still finish over 77%. When asked how […]

Rangers take out D-backs for franchise’s 1st World Series title

The Texas Rangers spent seven months of this season terrorizing adversaries with a menacing offense that feasted on home runs and hardly ever let up. The first night of November showcased the other aspects that make them dominant — gritty starting pitching, sound defense and a lineup versatile enough to manufacture runs when needed. It sealed them a title. The Rangers defeated the upstart, underdog Arizona Diamondbacks in front of a soldout Chase Field crowd, 5-0, in Game 5 of the World Series on Wednesday, clinching the first championship in the 63-year history of their franchise.  Nathan Eovaldi continually weaved out of trouble, somehow matching […]

Majors record makes Novak Djokovic best in history, Nadal says

Rafael Nadal’s most recent Grand Slam victory came at the French Open in 2022, and with Novak Djokovic having overtaken his mark for most major titles in men’s tennis, the Spanish player conceded that his rival is the best player in history. Djokovic’s recent victory at the US Open, his third Grand Slam title this year, took his tally to 24 majors, two ahead of Nadal’s total. “I believe that numbers are numbers and statistics are statistics. In that sense, I think he [Djokovic] has better numbers than mine and that is indisputable,” Nadal said in an interview with AS published Wednesday. […]

Team USA loses to Lithuania; Italy up next in FIBA quarters

Team USA has taken a few losses over the decades in major international competition when roster flaws have been exposed, focus has been an issue and when an adversary puts together a brilliant performance. Sometimes it’s the result of more than one of those factors, and that was the case Sunday night in the FIBA World Cup. Lithuania added to its illustrious history by scoring another victory over the U.S., bullying and out-executing the Americans in a 110-104 triumph. Lithuania put together a sensational performance, blending its advantages and rising to the occasion. Some loose balls went its way and […]
