SPORTLIGHT

June 12

1930–Max Schmeling beats Jack Sharkey on a fourth-round foul for the vacant heavyweight title in New York. Schmeling becomes the first German–and European–heavyweight world champion.

1939–Byron Nelson wins the U.S. Open in a three-way playoff with Craig Wood and Denny Shute.

1948–Citation, ridden by Eddie Arcaro, wins the Belmont Stakes and the Triple Crown with an eight-length victory over Better Self. It's Arcaro's second Triple Crown. He rode Whirlaway in 1941.

1948–Ben Hogan wins the U.S. Open with a record 276, five lower than Ralph Guldahl's 1937 record.

1977–Japan's Chako Higuchi wins the LPGA championship by three strokes over Pat Bradley, Sandra Post and Judy Rankin.

1981–Larry Holmes stops Leon Spinks in the third round for the WBC heavyweight title in Detroit.

1991–The Chicago Bulls win the first NBA championship in the team's 25-year history with a 108-101 victory in Game 5 over the Los Angeles Lakers. MVP Michael Jordan scores 30 points, Scottie Pippen has 32 and John Paxson 20.

1999–Cal Ripken is 6-for-6, homering twice and driving in six runs as the Baltimore Orioles score the most runs in franchise history with a 22-1 rout of the Atlanta Braves.

2005–Annika Sorenstam closes with a 1-over 73 for a three-shot victory over Michelle Wie in the LPGA Championship. The 15-year-old Wie shoots a 69 to finish second. It's the highest finish by an amateur in a major since 20-year-old Jenny Chuasiriporn lost a playoff to Se Ri Pak in the 1998 U.S. Women's Open.

2008–The Boston Celtics overcome a 24-point deficit and beat the Los Angeles Lakers 97-91 to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals. No team has ever overcome more than a 15-point deficit after the first quarter, and the Celtics post the biggest comeback in the finals since 1971.

2011–The Dallas Mavericks capture their first NBA title by winning Game 6 of the finals in Miami, 105-95. Jason Terry scores 27 points and Dirk Nowitzki adds 21 as the Mavericks win four of the series' last five games.
