AUSTIN — For more than 100 years, Texas had just four head coaches lead one of the most successful college baseball programs in the country. The last two left a legacy of winning national titles and thousands of career victories.
Now the Longhorns turn the program over to David Pierce, a self-described “slow-talking Texan” who doesn’t yet have 200 total wins in a career spent mostly as an assistant and just five seasons as a head coach.

Wade Davis earned his 19th save in 21 chances.

Miami President Pat Riley is a big fan of the symbolic 12:01 a.m. phone call to his team’s top targets. San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich says he would rather be sleeping at that moment. And more than $1 billion in deals will likely be hammered out in the next couple of days alone.
Free agency has returned to the NBA, and this July 1 is unlike any other.
Rangers lose again in 9th; Yankees win 2-1 on passed ball

NEW YORK — Robinson Chirinos knew which pitch was coming and where it was headed.
Yet somehow the fastball from reliever Tony Barnette still squirted out of the Rangers catcher’s glove for a passed ball that allowed the winning run to score in the bottom of the ninth inning of Thursday’s 2-1 loss to the Yankees.
“It’s my fault,” Chirinos said.
Barnette (5-3) blamed himself for the leadoff walk that put Chase Headley on base in the first place.
McGirt goes low in Ohio, leads at Firestone

AKRON, Ohio — Golf in Ohio must bring out the best in William McGirt.
One month after his first PGA Tour victory at the Memorial, McGirt looked just as good two hours up the road at the Bridgestone Invitational. In his World Golf Championship debut, he opened with six birdies and finished with a 45-foot par for a 6-under 64 and a three-shot lead.
An Ohio sweep?
That’s only happened four times, and McGirt guessed right at the answer.
