AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Bill Haas is the leader through one round of the Masters. Haas opened with a 4-under-par 68 that puts him one stroke ahead of Adam Scott, Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen (WUHST'-hy-zehn). Seven others are two strokes back, and Phil Mickelson is eight shots off the pace.

DALLAS (AP) — Patty Mills filled in for Tony Parker and scored a team-high 26 points as the San Antonio Spurs downed the Mavericks 109-100 in Dallas. Tim Duncan had 20 points and 15 rebounds for San Antonio, which needs another victory or an Oklahoma City loss to secure the top seed in the Western Conference. Kawhi (kah-WY') Leonard added 16 points, a career-high 16 rebounds and five assists to the win.

UNDATED (AP) — The Colorado Avalanche have pulled into a first-place tie with St. Louis in the NHL's Central Division, one point behind Anaheim for the Western Conference lead. Paul Stastny (STAS'-nee) scored twice and Tyson Barrie netted the game-winner with 7 1/2 minutes left as the Avalanche doubled up Vancouver 4-2. St. Louis has a season-high four-game losing streak after Kyle Brodziak scored twice and John Curry stopped 43 shots in the Wild's 4-2 win over the Blues in Minnesota.

NEW YORK (AP) — Jacoby Ellsbury had a pretty productive night in his first game against his former team. Ellsbury went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored as the New York Yankees downed Boston 4-1. He put the Yankees ahead 4-0 in the fifth with a run-scoring single off ex-roommate Clay Buchholz.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers own the longest winning streak of the young major league season. Carlos Gomez was 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in the Brewers' sixth straight win, a 6-2 trouncing of Philadelphia. Khris Davis provided a run-scoring single and an RBI double to back Marco Estrada, who limited the Phillies to two runs and five hits in six innings
