CINCINNATI (AP) — Cincinnati's Joey Votto (VAH'-toh) takes a nine-game hitting streak into tonight's home game against the St. Louis Cardinals. The All-Star first baseman had started the second half of the season in a 5-for-39 slump that dropped his average from .315 to .295.

HAYWARD, Calif. (AP) — Stephen (STEH'-fehn) Curry has missed the cut against professional golfers one notch below the PGA Tour. But he left some of golf's best players impressed that a two-time MVP for the Golden State Warriors could enter their arena and look respectable. Curry opened with a 4-over 74 on the TPC Stonebrae and shot another 74 yesterday to finish tied for 148th. He missed the cut by 11 shots.

CAPE ELIZABETH, Maine (AP) — Olympic marathon gold medalist Joan Benoit Samuelson joined nearly 6,500 runners today in the road race that she created along the coastal roads where she trained in her native Maine.

Kenyan runners were winners in both the men's and women's divisions.

SOUTHINGTON, Conn. (AP) — Nearly 500 children are expected to participate in today's finale of the Race4Chase youth triathlon program in Connecticut, founded by the family of a boy killed in the Sandy Hook shootings.

The boy had competed in his first youth triathlon just months before he was killed along with 25 others at Sandy Hook Elementary school in December 2012.
