BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — American swimmer Caeleb Dressel has won six gold medals at the world championships in Hungary, and he has one more race tomorrow.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Hall of Fame outfielder Lou Brock says he is cancer-free, months after announcing he had been diagnosed with a type of blood cancer. The 78-year-old St. Louis Cardinals great says a doctor's diagnosis that he had conquered multiple myeloma was "the greatest news ever." In 2015 Brock had his left leg amputated below the knee because of an infection related to diabetes. Brock was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1985.
