LONDON (AP) — Garbine Muguruza (GAHR'-been moo-gah-ROO'-thuh) has won the women's title at Wimbledon, out-powering Venus Williams 7-5, 6-0. It's the second Grand Slam title for Muguruza, who won the French Open last year. The 37-year-old Williams was trying for her sixth Wimbledon title. The match was played under a closed roof on Centre Court, the first time a women's final had been played indoors.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Giants ace Madison Bumgarner takes the mound tonight for the first time since a dirt bike accident led to a sprained AC joint in his pitching shoulder and bruised ribs. The left-hander made four starts, going 0-3 with a 3.00 ERA, before crashing his bike during a day off in Colorado. He'll face the Padres and right-hander Jhoulys Chacin (joh-LEES' cha-SEEN') (8-7, 4.32) in San Diego.

LOUDON, N.H. (AP) — Martin Truex Jr. will lead the field for tomorrow's NASCAR Cup race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, after Kyle Larson was stripped of his pole position for failing inspection. Larson had the fastest time in qualifying yesterday, but it was disallowed after inspectors found an unapproved rear deck fin on his car. Earlier this week another infraction knocked him from the top of the points standings.

SILVERSTONE, England (AP) — Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has the pole for the fifth time at the British Grand Prix. He clocked the fastest time today in rainy conditions in Silverstone, England. There was a question about whether Hamilton blocked Romain Grosjean's (groh-ZHAHNZ') car during qualifying, but stewards ruled that the Haas car wasn't impeded.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — The Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio, will honor the late golf legend Arnold Palmer by naming a stone bridge after him at the 16th hole he dubbed "The Monster." The Akron Beacon Journal reports the Arnold Palmer Bridge will be dedicated with a plaque Aug. 2 before the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational. Palmer won three times at Firestone. He died in September at age 87.
