OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors have captured the country's first major title in 26 years with their most remarkable road win yet in the franchise's NBA Finals debut. They outlasted the battered and depleted two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors 114-110 last night in Game 6 of the NBA championship. Stephen Curry missed a 3-pointer in the waning seconds in the final game in Oracle Arena. Klay Thompson suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during the game.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) _ The family of Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen says the 75-year-old died peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones. Bowlen died late Thursday night, less than two months before his enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Bowlen was the first owner in NFL history to oversee a team that won 300 games — including playoffs — in three decades. He had battled Alzheimer's for several years.

UNDATED (AP) _ A seven-game winning streak has propelled the Braves into first place in the NL East, 1½ games ahead of Philadelphia. The teams open a weekend series in Atlanta, with left-hander Max Fried (7-3, 3.75 ERA) pitching for the defending division champs against Bryce Harper and the Phillies. Nick Pivetta (4-1, 4.93) starts for Philadelphia in the first of 17 straight games against NL East opponents.

UNDATED (AP) _ Before the Cardinals and Mets play their regularly scheduled game, they'll finish what they started Thursday night. The series opener was suspended because of rain, moments after Harrison Bader hit an RBI double off New York closer Edwin Diaz with two outs in the top of the ninth inning that made it 4-all. The game will resume at 6:10 p.m. EDT beginning with the bottom of the ninth. The Mets top the majors with 15 blown saves, including three by Diaz in his last five chances.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A former Ohio State student athletic trainer has joined ex-athletes and other alumni alleging the university knew about and should have stopped the team doctor now accused of sexually abusing young men throughout two decades there. In Michael Heifferon's lawsuit, he says when he once sought medical treatment from Dr. Richard Strauss while a trainer in the mid-1980s, Strauss gave him an injection, and Heifferon fell asleep. He says he awoke to find his own pants unzipped. Strauss died in 2005.
