LAS VEGAS (AP) — Floyd Mayweather Jr. has won a unanimous decision over Manny Pacquiao (PAK'-ee-ow), using his usual skill to remain unbeaten in the most anticipated fight in recent years. Two judges favored Mayweather 116-112 in the welterweight contest, while a third had it 118-110 in the richest fight in boxing history. Mayweather danced, ducked and peppered Pacquiao with enough punches to take the decision and improve to 48-0.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — American Pharoah has won the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby in front of a record crowd of 170,513 at Churchill Downs, finishing ahead of Firing Line and Dortmund. The 5-2 favorite ran 1 1/4 miles in 2:03.02 and allowed Bob Baffert to celebrate his fourth Derby win, and first since 2002. Jockey Victor Espinoza won his second consecutive Derby, a year after being aboard California Chrome.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Paul banked a one-handed shot over Tim Duncan with one second remaining to give the Los Angeles Clippers a 111-109 victory over San Antonio in Game 7 of the NBA's Western Conference quarterfinals. Paul shot 5-for-6 from 3-point range and finished with 27 points to lead the Clippers into the conference semifinals against Houston. Blake Griffin recorded a triple-double of 24 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists for the Clippers.

NEW YORK (AP) — Henrik Lundqvist stopped 30 shots and Derick Brassard scored the eventual game-winner in the third period as the New York Rangers downed Washington 3-2 to even the Stanley Cup second-round series at a game apiece. The Rangers got off to a nice start, outshooting the Capitals 15-4 in the first period while building a 2-0 lead on goals by Chris Kreider and Dan Boyle. The Caps pressed the Blueshirts after Alex Ovechkin (oh-VEHCH'-kihn) scored with 9:31 remaining.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — World number one Rory McIlroy and Paul Casey settled nothing in 21 holes Saturday in the Match Play Championship. They went three extra holes before it got too dark. Casey had a chance to win the second extra hole while McIlroy missed a 6-footer on the third sudden death hole. They'll tee it up early in the morning to finish the match and determine who plays Jim Furyk in one semi-final. Gary Woodland faces Danny Willett of England in the other.
