Pirates Blank Brewers
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Trevor Williams pitched one-hit ball over seven innings and two Pittsburgh Pirates relievers closed out a two-hitter in a 1-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night. Williams (6-4) struck out seven and walked two for his first victory in a month. Jordy Mercer drove in the lone run with a seventh-inning double, and the Pirates won for the fourth time in five games. The Brewers entered the day leading the NL Central but suffered their third straight loss. The only hit off Williams was a single by Jonathan Villar with two outs in the fifth. The hit followed a walk to Hernan Perez, and the duo executed a double steal before Erik Kratz struck out to end the inning. Williams had gone 0-2 in five starts since beating the Chicago White Sox on May 15. Kyle Crick pitched a perfect eighth inning for Pittsburgh. Christian Yelich singled off closer Felipe Vazquez to open the ninth, ending a string of 13 straight Brewers retired. Vazquez retired the next three hitters for his 14th save in 18 opportunities.
Francisco Cervelli drew a one-out walk in the Pirates' seventh and advanced to third on Josh Bell's single. Josh Hader relieved Jhoulys Chacin and struck out Gregory Polanco, but Mercer followed by doubling down the left-field line to score Cervelli. The run was charged to Chacin (6-2), who had won his previous six decisions and not lost in 13 starts since April 4 against St. Louis. Chacin allowed six hits, struck out two and walked two. Cervelli had two hits to snap a 0-for-13 skid.

Trotz Resigns As Caps Coach
UNDATED (AP) - The NHL's most recent Stanley Cup-winning coach is now a free agent. Barry Trotz has stepped down less than two weeks after leading the Washington Capitals to their first championship. Trotz and the team could not agree on an annual salary that would have put him in line with other Cup-winning coaches. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that the Stanley Cup final win over Vegas triggered a two-year extension for Trotz that would have given him a slight bump in salary to just over $2 million. Mike Babcock is getting $6.25 from the Maple Leafs, and Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville makes $6 million after leading the club to three Stanley Cups in this decade.
Capitals associate coach Todd Reirden is now the leading candidate to replace Trotz. The New York Islanders are currently the only NHL team without a head coach.


World Cup: Kane Lifts England
UNDATED (AP) - Harry Kane's second goal of the game came in stoppage time to lift England past Tunisia, 2-1 in the World Cup opener for both teams. Kane opened the scoring in the 11th minute, but the Tunisians were able to knot the score on a penalty kick in the 35th. Monday's other World Cup action had Belgium beating Panama, 3-0 and Sweden earning a 1-0 win over South Korea. Meanwhile, Saudi team officials say the players made a safe landing after reported engine failure on their flight to Rostov-on-Don for a World Cup game against Uruguay. The team posted photos of the players exiting the plane and smiling Monday night but did not release further details of the engine problem.

Dutch Rennert Dies At 88
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) - Dutch Rennert, a National League umpire from 1973 to 1992 who was known for his animated, booming strike calls, has died. He was 88. St. John's Family Funeral Home and Crematory in St. Augustine, Florida, confirmed Monday night that Rennert died on Sunday. A cause of death wasn't given. Laurence "Dutch" Rennert Jr. was a longtime minor league umpire before his promotion to the National League in 1973. He worked 2,693 regular-season games plus six NL Championship Series, three World Series, in 1980, '83 and '89, and two All-Star Games. Respected by players, Rennert was known for his distinctive strike calls. He would step back from the catcher, turn toward one dugout in a crouch or on one knee, extend his right arm and often yell loud enough to be heard on a television or radio broadcast.
