WOMEN'S WORLD CUP

MONTREAL (AP) -- Team USA is going to the Women's World Cup championship.

Carli Lloyd converted a penalty kick in the 69th minute and assisted on Kelley O'Hara's first international goal in the 84th minute in the Americans' 2-0 victory over Germany in the semifinal in Montreal. Goalkeeper Hope Solo recorded her fifth straight shutout before a crowd of about 54,000 at Montreal's Olympic Stadium.

England and the defending Women's World Cup champion Japan play Wednesday night for the right to play the Americans in Sunday's championship in Vancouver.

WOMEN's WORLD CUP-BLATTER

MONTREAL (AP) -- FIFA (FEE'-fuh) President Sepp Blatter will skip the Women's World Cup final in Canada. He is avoiding a visit to North America at a time when U.S. officials are pursuing a criminal investigation into the game's ruling body.

According to FIFA, Blatter's second-in-command, secretary general Jerome Valcke, will also be absent from the biggest event in women's soccer "due to their current commitments in Zurich."

NASCAR-CONFEDERATE FLAGS

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Daytona International Speedway will not ban the Confederate flag from track property this weekend. But the track will offer the American flag to those who wish to fly it on property.

Daytona President Joie (JOH'-ee) Chitwood says the speedway will offer an exchange program in which fans can trade a flag for the American flag. Daytona's hosts NASCAR races on Saturday and Sunday nights this weekend.

Chitwood said there's not enough time to plan and enforce a ban on the Confederate flag, which NASCAR chairman Brian France does not want flying at NASCAR events.

NASCAR has taken a strong stance against the flag since nine black churchgoers were slain in Charleston, South Carolina on June 17. The suspect, Dylann Roof, embraced Confederate symbols before the attack.

MLB-GIANTS ROTATION

MIAMI (AP) -- Matt Cain and Jake Peavy are headed back to work for the San Francisco Giants after lengthy stays on the disabled list.

Cain is scheduled to start Thursday against Miami. Cain hasn't pitched since July 2014 due to elbow surgery and a strained flexor tendon.

Peavy is to start Friday at Washington after being sidelined since April 17 with a strained back.

Cain will replace right-hander Tim Lincecum (LIHN'-sih-kuhm), who will be placed on the disabled list with a bruised right forearm after being hit by a line drive Saturday.

MLB-PHILLIES-MACKANIN

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Philadelphia Phillies say Pete Mackanin will stay as their manager for the rest of the season. He took over on an interim basis last Friday after manager Ryne Sandberg resigned.

This is Mackanin's third stint as an interim manager after working in a similar role previously with the Reds and Pirates.

WIMBLEDON

LONDON (AP) -- The defending women's champion has won her first match of the year at Wimbledon as have former men's champions Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal (rah-fay-ehl nah-DAHL').

Second-seed Petra Kvitova (kuh-VIHT'-oh-vuh) rolled to a straight sets win. The two-time Wimbledon champ pulled out of a warmup event last week at Eastbourne, England, citing a viral illness.

Federer, Murray and Nadal all advanced with straight sets wins as well.

There were two upsets on the women's side of things as Eugenie Bouchard (boo-SHARD'), who was runner-up at Wimbledon last year, fell in the opening round to a qualifier, while third seed Simona Halep (HAL'-ehp) became the highest seeded player eliminated so far, losing to the 106th ranked player in the world.

The Williams sisters, Serena and Venus, have pulled out of women's doubles at Wimbledon. The duo has won 13 Grand Slam doubles titles as a pair, most recently at Wimbledon in 2012.

NBA-MOVES

UNDATED (AP) -- The Oklahoma City Thunder have sent Luke Ridnour and cash to the Toronto Raptors in exchange for a trade exception and the rights to forward Tomislav Zubcic. That makes four NBA teams in the last week for Ridnour. He was to Charlotte in a deal involving Memphis on Wednesday, then almost immediately dealt to the Thunder.

Ridnour has played for five NBA teams in 12 years and has a career scoring average of 9.3 points per game.

In other NBA news:

-- Tristan Thompson, Matthew Dellavedova (dehl-uh-veh-DOH'-vah) and Iman (EE'-mahn) Shumpert all received qualifying offers from Cleveland. That means the Cavaliers can match any offers those players get from other clubs this summer. The Cavs have also announced that forward Mike Miller exercised his $2.85-million option for next season.
