Stephen Strasburg struggled in his second-MLB start - with the mound not the opposition. Strasburg twice asked for mound repair during the Nationals 9-1 victory against Cleveland but didn't let the field stop him from delivering another solid start. The 21-year-old allowed just two hits - one a homer to Travis Hafner -and struck out eight, including the side in the fourth inning before exiting in the sixth. The rookie phenom is now 2-0 for the fourth-place Nationals.

It's the end of an era. Forty-year-old Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell won't fight again, according to UFC President Dana White. Liddell was knocked out in the first round of Saturday's UFC 115 bout against Rich "Ace" Franklin. The loss was the former light-heavyweight champion's fifth in six fights and his third straight defeat by knockout. "You get to a point in your career and the chin just goes. I've been around fighters my whole life and you could have hit Chuck in the face with a pole at one time and it wouldn't have knocked him out. He had an incredible chin," White said. Liddell hasn't made a formal announcement about his future.
