Update on the latest in sports:


Warriors clobber Rockets

HOUSTON (AP) — Stephen (STEH’-fehn) Curry and the Golden State Warriors staged a blowout on Saturday after winning the first two games of the NBA’s Western Conference finals by a total of five points.

Curry poured in 40 points, had seven assists and grabbed five rebounds as the Warriors demolished the Rockets 115-80 in Houston. Curry shot 12-for-19 from the floor, including a 7-for-9 mark from beyond the arc. He’s already broken the NBA record for most 3s in a single postseason with 64.

Draymond Green contributed 17 points and a team-high 13 rebounds for the Warriors, who led by 25 at intermission. Klay Thompson also delivered 17 points, while Andrew Bogut (BOH’-guht) added 12 and 12 boards.

The Rockets shot under 34 percent from the field, with James Harden contributing 17 points on just 3 of 16 shooting. Dwight Howard had 14 points and a game-high 14 rebounds for the Rockets, who will try to stave off elimination at home on Monday.


Hawks even series

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Blackhawks coughed up a two-goal lead in the third period before evening the NHL’s Western Conference finals at two games apiece.

Antoine Vermette (AN’-twahn vur-MEHT’) scored at 5:37 of double-overtime to lift the Hawks past the Anaheim Ducks 5-4. Corey Crawford made 21 of his 47 saves in OT and was perfect following a three-goal blitz by the Ducks midway through the third period. Crawford was spectacular while the Ducks were outshooting the Hawks 17-5 in the first OT.

The Blackhawks grabbed a 3-1 lead in the third as Jonathan Toews (tayvz) and Brent Seabrook scored five minutes apart in the first 7:38. But Ryan Kesler, Matt Belesky and Corey Perry beat Crawford during a 37 second span to put the Ducks in front midway through the third.

Patrick Kane provided the equalizer, beating Frederik Andersen on a power play with 7:21 left in regulation.

Brandon Saad (sahd) had a goal and two assists for the Blackhawks, who head to Anaheim for Game 5 on Monday.


Padres have no prayer against Bolsinger

UNDATED (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers rookie Mike Bolsinger has been pretty impressive this season. He was spectacular on Saturday, combining with Kenley Jensen on a one-hitter as the Dodgers beat San Diego 2-0.

Bolsinger got 24 consecutive outs after Yangervis Solarte (yahn-JUR’-vihs soh-LAHR’-tay) led off the game with a single. Solarte was promptly erased on a double-play grounder before Bolsinger recorded eight strikeouts in his eight innings of work.

Bolsinger is 3-0 with a 0.71 ERA in four starts for L.A. this season.

Joc Pederson homered for the second straight night to put the Dodgers ahead to stay. Justin Turner doubled home the second run as the Dodgers improved to 19-5 at home.

Also in the majors:

— San Francisco has an eight-game winning streak after Brandon Crawford collected three RBIs and Joe Panik had three of the Giants’ 14 hits in a 10-8 win at Colorado in Game 1 of a doubleheader. Brandon Belt and Hunter Pence each drove in two runs to back a shaky Chris Heston, who won despite giving up six runs and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings.

— The Giants’ winning streak ended in the nightcap as Daniel Descalso hit a two-run homer and had three RBIs to lead the Rockies to a 5-3 verdict in the nightcap. Hale gave up two earned runs and eight hits in 6 2/3 innings to help the Rockies win for just the fifth time in their last 22 games.

— Washington’s six-game winning streak ended as Stephen Strasburg was tagged for five earned runs and seven hits in just 3 2/3 innings of an 8-1 loss to the Phillies. Maikel Franco smacked a two-run homer off Strasburg, who is 3-5 with a hefty 6.50 ERA this season.

The Marlins’ bullpen threw seven shutout innings, with winning pitcher Matt Capps giving up one hit while striking out six in three innings.

— Boston had dropped three straight before Mike Napoli homered twice and drove in three runs to carry the Red Sox past the Angels 8-3. Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts (ZAN’-dur BOH’-gahrts) each had two RBIs to support Steven Wright, who scattered four hits in 6 1/3 innings and blanked the Angels after the first.

— Lance McCullers got Ian Kinsler to ground into a triple play while holding Detroit to two runs in six innings of Houston’s 3-2 triumph over the Tigers. The Tigers led 2-1 in the fifth until the Astros turned their first triple play in 11 years, helping McCullers pick up his first big league win.

— Shin-Soo Choo hit a go-ahead single and a three-run homer in a 10-run third inning that highlighted the Texas Rangers’ 15-4 mauling of the New York Yankees. CC Sabathia (sah-BATH’-ee-uh) was pinned with the Yankees’ ninth loss in 10 games by surrendering six runs and seven hits in 2 1/3 innings, his shortest outing since 2009.

— Kyle Seager bashed a solo homer and James Paxton won his third straight start by allowing two runs and four hits in six innings of Seattle’s 3-2 victory at Toronto. Willie Bloomquist added a two-run double as the Mariners handed the Blue Jays their 11th loss in 14 games.

— A.J. Burnett won his fourth straight start by giving up only one run while striking out 10 over seven innings of Pittsburgh’s 8-2 pounding of the New York Mets. Andrew McCutchen and Pedro Alvarez homered and drove in two runs apiece as the Pirates dealt Mets ace Matt Harvey the worst loss of his career.

— Mike Rizzo capped his six-RBI night by belting a tiebreaking, three-run homer in the ninth inning to send the Chicago Cubs to a 9-6 win at Arizona. The Cubs were trailing 6-4 until Jorge Soler (HOHR’-hay soh-LEHR’) delivered a two-run double in the eighth.


Matusz ejected for foreign substance on arm

MIAMI (AP) — Orioles reliever Brian Matusz (MAT’-uhs) was ejected in the 12th inning of Saturday’s game against Miami for having a foreign substance on his right forearm. It comes just days after Brewers reliever Will Smith received an eight-game suspension for a similar infraction.


Dodgers shelve Grandal; Wright still on DL

UNDATED (AP) — New York Mets third baseman David Wright has been shut down for at least another week because of a back problem.

He originally went on the disabled list in mid-April with hamstring trouble, then developed a back issue while rehabbing. The Mets say the seven-time All-Star has been diagnosed with stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal column. The team captain took live batting practice on Friday before his back flared up again.

In other major league injury news:

— The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed backup catcher Yasmani Grandal on the seven-day concussion disabled list and replaced him by calling up Austin Barnes from Triple-A Oklahoma City. Grandal twice took blows to the head during Friday’s win against San Diego. He was struck on the right side of the head by the follow-through of Yangervis Solarte’s bat in the third inning, then took a foul tip off the mask by Matt Kemp in the fourth.

— The Oakland Athletics have placed outfielder Coco Crisp on the 15-day disabled list with a cervical strain. He has hit just .044 in 13 games after beginning the season the DL after having surgery on his right elbow.


Hawks lose Korver while Cavs assess Irving

UNDATED (AP) — If the Atlanta Hawks are to rally and win the NBA championship, they’ll do it without Kyle Korver.

The team’s top 3-point threat is done for the playoffs because of a severe high right ankle sprain. Korver rolled the ankle during a scramble for a loose ball during the second half of Friday’s loss to Cleveland.

The Cavaliers lead the series 2-0, but they could be spending a second straight game without Kyrie Irving. The All-Star guard is listed as questionable for Game 3 on Sunday due to tendinitis in his left knee, an injury that resulted from him compensating for a sprained right foot.

Irving played one-on-one on Saturday while wearing a brace on his left knee.

Monty stands in first

Four-time Senior majors winner Bernhard Langer is second after a 68. He eagled the 415-yard, par-4 eighth hole and closed with consecutive birdies after a bogey at the par-5 16th.
