SPORTLIGHT

May 15

1948 Citation, ridden by Eddie Arcaro, wins the Preakness Stakes by 51/2 lengths over Vulcan s Forge.

1971 Canonero II, ridden by Gustavo Avila, posts a 11/2-length victory over Eastern Fleet in the Preakness Stakes.

1981 Len Barker of Cleveland pitches the first perfect game in 13 years as the Indians beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-0 at Municipal Stadium.

1990 Petr Klima ends a bizarre NHL marathon. His goal at 15:13 of the third overtime wins the longest game in Stanley Cup finals history for the Edmonton Oilers a 3-2 series-opening victory over the Boston Bruins in a game delayed 25 minutes by a lighting problem.

1993 Prairie Bayou, ridden by Mike Smith, rebounds from a second-place finish in the Kentucky Derby to become the first gelding to win the Preakness in 79 years.

1998 Se Ri Pak shoots a 68 at the LPGA Championship for a two-day total of 9-under 133 the lowest 36-hole score in the history of the tournament.

1998 Notah Begay III joins Al Geiberger and Chip Beck as the only players to shoot a 59 on a U.S. pro tour. He does it at the Nike Old Dominion Open.

2003 The three-year championship reign of the Los Angeles Lakers ends. Tim Duncan has 37 points and 16 rebounds, and Tony Parker adds 27 points to help the San Antonio Spurs overpower the Lakers 110-82 to win the Western Conference semifinal series 4-2.

2004 With one breathtaking surge, Smarty Jones posts a record 111/2-length victory in the Preakness. Rock Hard Ten, in his fourth start, finishes strong for second ahead of Eddington.

2005 Annika Sorenstam cruises to a 10-stroke win in the Chick-fil-A Charity Championship, finishing with a 23-under 265 total, matching the biggest 72-hole win of her career.
