Manu Ginobili — Ginobili and the San Antonio Spurs dominated the Detroit Pistons again in Game 2 of the NBA Finals to take a 2-0 series lead.

Washington Nationals — The Nationals have won 10 in a row. Manager Frank Robinson's team is on a major roll and is in first place in the NL East, with the red-hot Phillies breathing down their necks.

Annika Sorenstam — Sorenstam became the first LPGA Tour player in 19 years to get halfway home to a Grand Slam, winning the LPGA Championship by beating runner-up Michelle Wie by three shots.

Afleet Alex — Afleet Alex dominated in winning the Belmont Stakes by seven lengths. Jockey Jeremy Rose did a great job once again.

Hee Seop Choi — The Dodgers' first baseman hit three home runs on Sunday and has six dingers in his last three games.

Alex Rodriguez — A-Rod became the youngest player with 400 home runs, the first to do it before his 30th birthday.

Mike Tyson — Tyson is finished as a boxer. He quit after the sixth round against journeyman Kevin McBride in Washington, D.C., on Saturday night.

New York Yankees — The Yankees lost all four series on their 12-game road trip, finishing with a 3-9 record overall.
