Dolphins Knowshon Moreno working his way back to full strength

By John Evenson

Dolphins free agent signing Knowshon Moreno is finally back taking part in full contact football this week at practice, the Dolphins hoping he can improve their 26th ranked running game from last season. One thing he's already done is improve fellow running back Lamar Miller's performances.

Miller has outperformed Moreno in most of the offseason workouts so far, looking much more motivated than he did last season. Of course, part of Moreno's slow start was because of his nagging knee injury and the fact he came into camp a little heavy, but with knee surgery now behind him, he's ready to be the Knowshon Moreno Dolphins fans were hoping he's be.

WOMEN'S WORLD CUP

VANCOUVER (AP) -- The Women's World Cup final this evening in Vancouver features a rematch of the final four years ago, the U.S. against Japan. Back in 2011 the final finished in a 2-2 tie with Japan winning on penalty kicks.

The U.S. has had great success against teams from Japan with a record of 24-1-6.

The U.S. advanced with a 2-0 win over Germany in the semifinals while Japan eliminated England 2-1.

Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, will be on hand for the championship match.

WIMBLEDON

LONDON (AP) -- There is no action today at Wimbledon. This is the annual mid-tournament day of rest. Play resumes on Monday with both of the top-seeds, Novak Djokovic (NOH'-vak JOH'-kuh-vich) and Serena Williams, in action. For Williams the fourth round match has her facing her older sister Venus. Serena tops the series 14-11.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Gerrit Cole of the Pirates is going for his 12th win of the season this afternoon as the Bucs are home to Cleveland. Cole is 11-3 with a 2.20 earned run average. He's facing seven-game winner Danny Salazar.

The Rays are hoping to put an end to their seven-game losing streak today as they play the Yankees in New York. The defeats have dropped the Rays into third place in the American League East, three games back of the first-place Yankees.

The longest winning streak in baseball is held by Milwaukee as the Brewers have won seven in a row. The success hasn't helped the Brewers cause much as they still reside in last place in the National League Central, 18 1/2 games back of the Cardinals. The Brewers are facing the Reds today in Cincinnati.

Ervin Santana is making his first start for Minnesota after serving an 80-game drug suspension. He's pitching in Kansas City against the team he played for in 2013. Santana signed a $55 million, four-year contract with the Twins in December after winning 14 games for Atlanta last season. He was penalized by MLB following a positive test for the performance-enhancing substance Stanozolol.

The rest of the schedule today has the Blue Jays in Detroit, the Red Sox home to the Astros, the Phillies in Atlanta, the White Sox hosting the Orioles, San Diego at St. Louis, the Marlins in Chicago facing the Cubs, the A's at home to the Mariners, Colorado at Arizona and the Dodgers entertaining the Mets.

There are two games being played this evening. In an American League West matchup, the Angels are home to the Rangers while in the National League the defending World Series champion Giants wrap up a series with the Nationals in Washington.

MLB-CARDINALS

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis left-hander Jaime Garcia has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a groin strain. Garcia, who missed his previous scheduled start, suffered the injury running the bases on June 24 at Miami. He is 3-3 with a 1.69 earned run average in seven starts.

MLB-ALL-STAR GAME

UNDATED (AP) -- Fan-elected starters for the July 14th All-Star Game in Cincinnati are being announced this evening. When the last balloting update was released Monday, five Kansas City Royals were leading at their positions. The deadline to vote online was midnight Thursday. Pitchers and reserves will be revealed Monday night.

NASCAR

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. is starting tonight's Sprint Cup race at Daytona International Speedway from the pole. The winner of this race in 2001 secured the pole because of his times in the first practice session on Friday.

His crew chief, Greg Ives, instructed Earnhardt to go flat-out at the start of the practice session because the rules state the field will be set by practice times if a qualifying session is canceled. When rain washed out the Saturday session, Ives proved to be a skilled weatherman.

F1-BRITISH GRAND PRIX

SILVERSTONE, Eng. (AP) -- It was another 1-2 finish for Mercedes in a Grand Prix race. This time it was the British GP in Silverstone, England, and the winner was defending series champion Lewis Hamilton with teammate Nico (NIH'-koh) Rosberg second and Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel third.

The current world driver standings reflect the finish of the race with Hamilton on top followed by Rosberg and Vettel third.
