TORONTO—After a one-start reprieve, R.A. Dickey went right back to dealing with a lack of run support.
Ryan Howard and Odubel Herrera homered, and Jerad Eickhoff pitched six spotless innings to win consecutive starts for the first time this season, as the Philadelphia Phillies snapped a four-game losing streak by beating Dickey and the Toronto Blue Jays 7-0 last night.
OAKLAND, Calif.—Like everyone else, Draymond Green only could watch as LeBron James and Kyrie Irving sent the NBA Finals back to Cleveland.

ORLANDO, Fla.—The last of the bodies were removed from an Orlando gay nightclub overnight as investigators dug into the background of the gunman, who called 9-1-1 to profess allegiance to the Islamic State during the attack that left 49 victims dead.
BROOKLYN, Mich.—Joey Logano plopped into a seat, getting a much-needed break, when the 26-year-old driver found out he was just a part of history.

MEMPHIS, Tenn.—Killing time during a three-hour rain delay yesterday, Phil Mickelson ribbed Daniel Berger about having won the PGA Tour rookie-of-the-year award without a victory.
That was a bit of a sore spot for the ultra-competitive 23-year-old Floridian.
Berger answered once the thunderstorms ended by winning the FedEx St. Jude Classic for his first title.
ROME — Pope Francis told thousands of workers and diplomats Monday at the U.N. agency that delivers food to crisis areas it is “a strange paradox” that food often cannot get through to those suffering due to war but weapons can.
LONDON—Britain celebrated Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday and her service to the country today with solemn pomp, pageantry, and prayer at St. Paul’s Cathedral ahead of a weekend of festivities.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, set the tone by reminding Britain of the queen’s long life and dedicated service.
DETROIT—For the first time since last summer, R.A. Dickey won consecutive starts.
On a day when Dickey couldn’t consistently do anything with his knuckleball, his Toronto teammates scored seven runs in the first five innings in a 7-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers yesterday afternoon.
“That was a gift,” Dickey said.
CLEVELAND—It’s been the post-season of blowouts.
The NBA Finals have been no different. There was a 63-point turnaround from Game 2 to Game 3 in a span of about 72 hours.
Try to make sense of this: the Cleveland Cavaliers had their entire roster available to start Game 2 of the NBA Finals yet wound up losing that game to the Golden State Warriors by 33 points.
