CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland fans are ecstatic over the pending return of LeBron James to the Cavaliers. When news broke that James was returning to the team for whom he played his first seven seasons before going to the Miami Heat, horns honked and people cheered at the prospect of James leading the Cavs to Cleveland's first pro sports championship since the 1964 Browns won the NFL title.

UNDATED (AP) — Now that LeBron James has decided to return to his roots in Cleveland after four years with Miami, who is left on the Heat? Well, not everyone is bolting. Two people familiar with the situation say that free agent Chris Bosh has agreed to a maximum deal to stay with Miami, a five-year deal worth $118 million.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Washington Nationals lost a game and their All-Star pitcher Jordan Zimmermann last night. Jimmy Rollins homered twice in Philadelphia's 6-2 win over the Nationals. Zimmermann left abruptly in the middle of the fourth with what Nationals manager Matt Williams said was a cramp in his bicep. Zimmermann is scheduled for an MRI today.

BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) — Brazil will try to restore some national pride when it plays Netherlands in the third place game at the World Cup. Host Brazil is coming off its worst defeat ever in World Cup play, a 7-1 pasting by Germany. The Germans play Argentina in Sunday's championship game.

EDMOND, Okla. (AP) — Scotland's Colin Montgomerie takes a one-stroke lead over Scott Dunlap into today's third round at the U.S. Senior Open. The portly Scot shot even-par 71 yesterday and is 6 under for the tournament.
