Key Wimbledon matches...Red Sox streak ruined...NHL concussion lawsuit ruling
LONDON (AP) — The Wimbledon semifinal between Novak Djokovic (NOH’-vak JOH’-kuh-vich) and Rafael Nadal will resume at 1 p.m. on Saturday local time, before the women’s final is played. The match was halted after the third set because of the tournament’s 11 p.m. curfew, with Djokovic leading 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (9). The winner will face Kevin Anderson in Sunday’s final. The women’s final between Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber had been scheduled for 2 p.m. but will now start after the men’s match is over.
BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox’s 10-game winning streak has been snapped, severely. Kevin Pillar had four hits and Justin Smoak had three, including a pair of homers, and they drove in four runs apiece to help the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Red Sox 13-7. Smoak said he hadn’t realized how hot the Red Sox had been.
CLEVELAND (AP) —Rookie right-hander Shane Bieber (BEE’-bur) pitched into the eighth inning and Cleveland’s shaky bullpen narrowly closed things out, lifting the Indians over the New York Yankees 6-5. Bieber was removed after Tyler Wade’s leadoff double in the eighth and Cleveland lead 6-3. Closer Cody Allen gave up Giancarlo Stanton’s leadoff homer but ultimately got his 19th save.
WACO, Texas (AP) — Baylor University has settled a federal Title IX lawsuit brought by a former volleyball player who alleged that she was drugged and gang raped by at least four football players in 2012. Terms of Friday’s settlement with the woman were not disclosed. The Waco Tribune-Herald reports it’s the fifth such lawsuit the university has settled.

NEW YORK (AP) — The federal judge overseeing the NHL concussion case has denied class-action status for the former players suing the league over head injuries.
