pirates 5, cardinals 0
PITTSBURGH -- Nick Kingham carried a perfect game into the seventh inning in his major league debut to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to their fifth straight win, 5-0 over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday. Kingham, a 26-year-old rookie right-hander, retired 20 straight before Paul DeJong singled down the left-field line with two outs in the seventh. He finished with one hit and nine strikeouts on 98 pitches (72 strikes) after being recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis earlier in the day. The Elias Sports Bureau said no pitcher in the Expansion Era -- since 1961 -- had taken a perfect game bid so far in his debut. Wayne Simpson of the Reds in 1970 and Ken Cloude of the Mariners in 1997 each set down their first 16 batters. Kingham joined Johnny Cueto as the only pitchers in the last 100 years with one hit allowed, at least nine strikeouts and zero walks in a debut. Luke Weaver (2-2) took the loss after allowing four runs and six hits with six strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings.

He homered in the fifth with Salvador Perez and Jorge Soler aboard off Chris Volstad. Brandon McCarthy (2-0) picked up the victory, while Blaine Boyer logged his fifth career save -- and his first since May 29, 2016, while with Milwaukee.

CLEVELAND -- LeBron James scored 45 points and got some needed help in Game 7 to stay unbeaten in the opening round of the playoffs, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 105-101 win over the Indiana Pacers, who pushed the game's best player to the limit. James improved to 13-0 in the first round and kept Cleveland's strange season alive -- for the time being. It took everything James and the Cavs had to hold off the Pacers, who were swept by Cleveland a year ago and came in confident after a 34-point win in Game 6. Victor Oladipo scored 30 and Darren Collison had 23 for the Pacers. The Cavs will open the conference semifinals on Tuesday at top-seeded Toronto.

Logano was followed by Busch, Chase Elliott and pole sitter Kevin Harvick. more to come on this mornings monday morning race refresher.
SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) – Rodrigo Koxa has been credited with a world record for riding the biggest wave ever surfed. The World Surf League confirmed the record at its Big Wave Awards in Santa Monica on Saturday, saying its judging panel determined that a wave Koxa surfed at Nazare, Portugal, on Nov. 8 was 80 feet (24.38 meters). The Brazilian surfer’s mark overtook the record of 78 feet (23.77 meters) which Garrett McNamara set in 2011. ”The award goes to the surfer who, by any means available, catches the biggest wave of the year,” The WSL said in a statement. ”Not only did Koxa win this year’s honor, but he now holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest wave surfed. Koxa described the award as ”a dream come true.”
