Morton Returns And Picks Up Win
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Charlie Morton tossed seven strong innings in his return from hip surgery and the Pittsburgh Pirates ran their winning streak to four straight with a 4-2 victory over the Miami Marlins on Monday. Morton (1-0) gave up two runs on eight hits, striking out three with no walks. The 32-year-old's sinker produced 18 groundball outs in his first start since the end of an injury plagued 2014. Francisco Cervelli had two hits, including a three-run homer, for the Pirates. Pedro Alvarez added his ninth homer of the season for Pittsburgh, which moved back to .500 (22-22). Mark Melancon worked a perfect ninth for his 11th save. Giancarlo Stanton hit his 13th homer and drove in two for the Marlins while adding a spectacular catch against the wall in right field. David Phelps (2-2) surrendered four runs in six innings. The Marlins fell to 2-6 under new manager Dan Jennings.

Cal U Ride Ends with Semifinals Loss to Dixie State
The California University softball team avoided elimination 10 times in this post season. Unfortunately, the streak ended there as the Vulcans failed to hold an early 6-3 lead, losing to Dixie State, 10-6, Sunday evening in the Division Final at the NCAA D-II softball national championships. Leading 6-3 in the third, Cal U had the bases loaded and one out but couldn't get another run across. The Vulcans got just two more baserunners the rest of the way. The season ends 43-13 and all 11 Cal U players that played the last two rounds are underclassmen. D-II Softball Home

Ray McDonald Charged With Domestic Violence
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - NFL player Ray McDonald has been released from jail after posting bail for a domestic violence arrest in Northern California. McDonald walked out of a Santa Clara County jail in San Jose Monday afternoon, pushing past television cameras and reporters as he got into a taxi. His departure came several hours after his morning arrest on suspicion of the assault on a woman who was holding a baby. Later in the day the Chicago Bears released the defensive end because of the arrest that followed a pattern of similar incidents. Phone calls to McDonald's agent Tom Condon weren't immediately returned.
