ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Adrian Beltre (BEHL'-tray) says reaching his 3,000th hit played out just as he hoped it would. It happened at home for the Texas Rangers all-star with his wife and children in the stands. Beltre, a 20-year veteran, is the first player from the Dominican Republic, and 31st overall, in the major leagues to reach 3,000. He reached the magic number with a fourth inning double in a 10-6 loss Sunday to the Baltimore Orioles.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — One of baseball's hottest teams showed no sign of cooling over the weekend. Victor Caratini hit his first career home run to help Chicago beat Milwaukee 4-2. John Lackey had a solid six-inning start. He struck out eight.

BRIDGEND, Wales (AP) — Despite battling a sore throat and playing in difficult weather conditions, Bernhard Langer has won the Senior British Open. Sunday's win happened in rain and wind at Royal Porthcawl. The win was 59-year-old Langer's 10th senior major title and the fifth in the last 10. That's a record. He beat American Corey Pavin by three strokes.

LONG POND, Pa. (AP) — Kyle Busch used a bump-and-run on Kevin Harvick to take the lead and held on to snap a 36-race losing streak and win the NASCAR Cup race at Pocono Raceway on Sunday. Busch won for the first time this season in the No. 18 Toyota and won for the first time ever at Pocono. Busch had led more than 1,000 laps this season entering the race.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Another ballpark brouhaha for Chris Christie. Carrying a basket of nachos, the New Jersey governor was caught on video confronting a Chicago Cubs fan on Sunday in Milwaukee against the Brewers. The video circulating on Twitter showed Christie leaning over to nearly get in the man's face. It was not known what sparked the beef. Christie was loudly booed on July 18 at Citi Field in New York after snagging a foul ball at a Mets game.
