SPORTLIGHT

June 6

1919–Man o' War wins his first race, a 5-furlong contest over a straightaway at Belmont Park. The 3-to-5 favorite wins by six lengths, covering the distance in 59 seconds.

1924–Cyril Walker captures the U.S. Open with a three-stroke victory over Bobby Jones.

1936–Granville, ridden by J. Stout, wins the Belmont Stakes by a neck over Mr. Bones. Bold Venture, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner, does not run in the race.

1981–Summing, ridden by George Martins, wins the Belmont Stakes, spoiling Pleasant Colony's Triple Crown bid.

1987–Bet Twice, ridden by Craig Perret, breezes to a 14-length victory in the Belmont Stakes to deny Alysheba the Triple Crown. Alysheba is a distant fourth.

1987–West Germany's Steffi Graf, eight days shy of her 18th birthday, becomes the youngest women's champion of the French Open when she beats Martina Navratilova 6-4, 4-6, 8-6.

1990–Mark Messier, who led the Edmonton Oilers to the Stanley Cup for the fifth time in seven years, edges Boston's Ray Bourque in the closest balloting for the Hart Trophy. Messier wins the NHL's MVP award by two points, receiving 227 of a possible 315 points in balloting by the Professional Hockey Writers Association.

1998–Real Quiet is denied the Triple Crown when Victory Gallop edges him at the wire in the Belmont Stakes before a crowd of 80,162. The crowd is the second-largest in the track's history and just shy of the mark set in 1971 when Canonero II failed in his Triple Crown bid before 82,694.

1999–Andre Agassi rallies to win the French Open and become the fifth man to complete a career Grand Slam. After losing the first two sets, Agassi surges back to beat Andrei Medvedev 1-6, 2-6, 6-4, 6-3, 6-4. Agassi won the 1992 Wimbledon, 1994 U.S. Open and 1995 Australian Open.

1999–Juli Inkster wins the U.S. Women's Open with a 16-under 272 total, the lowest 72-hole score in the championship's 54-year history.

2006–Alicia Hollowell throws her third straight shutout and sets the Women's College World Series record for strikeouts in a 5-0 win over Northwestern that gives Arizona the NCAA softball title. She strikes out 13 to finish with 64 in six games, two more than UCLA's Debbie Doom had in 1982.

2007–The Anaheim Ducks capture the Stanley Cup with a 6-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators, ending the series in five games. Defenseman Scott Niedermayer earns his first Conn Smythe Trophy as MVP of the NHL playoffs.

2007–Trevor Hoffman becomes the first major leaguer with 500 career saves when he closes out the San Diego Padres' 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

2008–Tirunesh Dibaba of Ethiopia breaks the world record in the women's 5,000 meters with a time of 14:11.15 at the Bislett Games in Oslo, Norway. Dibaba improves the record by more than 5 seconds. Meseret Defar, also of Ethiopia, held the previous record of 14:16.63, set a year earlier in Oslo.

2009–Svetlana Kuznetsova wins her second Grand Slam title, beating top-ranked Dinara Safina 6-4, 6-2 in an all-Russian final at the French Open.

2009–Summer Bird wins the Belmont Stakes, rallying past Mine That Bird to spoil jockey Calvin Borel's attempt at winning all three legs of the Triple Crown. Summer Bird, ridden Kent Desormeaux, beats Dunkirk by 2u190? lengths, with Mine That Bird finishing third.

2010–Rafael Nadal wins his fifth French Open title and avenges his lone Roland Garros defeat, beating Robin Soderling 6-4, 6-2, 6-4. Nadal improves to 38-1 at Roland Garros, with the only loss to Soderling in the fourth round a year ago.

2011–The Bowl Championship Series strips Southern California of its 2004 title, leaving that season without a BCS champion. BCS officials vacated the championship after the Trojans were hit with heavy NCAA sanctions last year for rules violations committed during the 2004 and ‘05 seasons.
