SPORTLIGHT

July 27

1920-Resolute defeats Shamrock IV of Britain to defend the America's Cup title for the United States.

1937-The United States wins the Davis Cup by beating Britain four matches to one.

1954-Chick Harbart beats Walter Burkemo 4 and 3 in the final round to win the PGA championship.

1969-Betsy Rawls wins the LPGA championship by four strokes over Sue Berning and Carol Mann.

1973-The Miami Dolphins beat the College All-Stars 14-3 in Chicago.

1986-Greg Lemond becomes the first American to win the Tour de France. LeMond's teammate, Bernard Hinault of France, finishes second.

1986-Pat Bradley sinks a 12-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to defeat hard-charging Japanese veteran Ayako Okamoto in the LPGA-du Maurier tournament. Bradley birdied five of the first six holes and finishes at 6-under 66 for a 72-hole total of 276.

1986-Speedskater Bonnie Blair sets a U.S. Olympic Festival record for total medals won with 16 and total golds with 10 by taking two titles.

1986-Bobby Hillin Jr. becomes the youngest winner in the history of NASCAR stock car racing, surviving the Talladega 500 at Alabama International Motor Speedway. Hillin, 22, takes the lead from Tim Richmond eight laps from the end of the 188-lap event.

1987-The Salt Lake Trappers, an independent team in the Pioneer League, have their record 29-game winning streak snapped with a 7-5 loss to Billings.

1992-Patty Sheehan shoots a 1-over 72 for a two-stroke victory over Juli Inkster in their 18-hole playoff in the U.S. Women's Open.

1993-Reggie Lewis, the 27-year-old Boston Celtics star who collapsed during a playoff game on April 29 from a heart ailment, dies after a light workout at the team's practice facility at Brandeis University.

1996-On the day when one person dies and more than 100 are injured by a bomb, the Olympic competition is held beneath flags at half-staff. Canada's Donovan Bailey sets the world record to win the 100 meters in 9.84 seconds, the Games' glamour race.

2002-John Ruiz retains the WBA heavyweight title he won from Evander Holyfield, this time getting off the canvas three times-all after low blows-and lasting long enough for Kirk Johnson to be disqualified.

2003-Lance Armstrong, overcoming crashes, illness, hard-charging rivals and plain old bad luck, wins his hardest but sweetest Tour de France title-a record-tying fifth straight victory. He joins Spaniard Miguel Indurain as the only riders to win the race five times consecutively.

2005-Grant Hackett bumps off one of the sport's most enduring world records, eclipsing Ian Thorpe's mark in the 800-meter freestyle. The 6-foot-6 Hackett claims his second gold and third medal of the World Swimming Championships with a time of 7:38.65, breaking the mark set four years earlier by countryman Thorpe.

2008-Carlos Sastre wins the Tour de France in one of the closest finishes in the 105-year-old race. The third Spaniard in a row to win cycling's premier event, Sastre holds his 65-second lead over Cadel Evans of Australia. As in the last two years, this year's Tour is plagued by doping.

2011-Ervin Santana pitches the first solo no-hitter for the Angels in nearly 27 years, striking out 10 and leading Los Angeles over Cleveland 3-1.
