Let me be the last to wish a Happy Father's Day to all of the great dads out there -- especially mine. I hope you all spent the weekend relaxing on your respective couches and enjoying everything that happened this weekend in sports. And if you didn't, well, that's what we're here for. So grab a coffee and check out today's Coffee Companion, where we recap the past day's sports headlines.
- The Orioles dropped their Sunday matchup with the division-leading Blue Jays, 5-2. The O's are 5-5 in their past 10 games, all of which have been at home, and now head on a six-game road trip to Tampa and New York. Chris Tillman did make a bit of history on Sunday, despite being "good, but not good enough" against Toronto.
- Dylan Bundy, the Orioles' first-round draft pick from 2011, pitched well in Aberdeen on Sunday. The right-hander worked five innings in his return and surrendered just one run on 65 pitches.
- The 2014 World Cup is well underway, but today is the day America finally plays. The United States is looking to take care of business against Ghana, which has booted the Yanks from their last two World Cups.
- Former Maryland soccer star Taylor Twellman has become one of the fastest-rising talents in American sports media, and he's been assigned to call the U.S.-Ghana match today.
- Kyle Beckerman, who starred on the pitch for Arundel in the late '90s, will be part of his first World Cup match today.
Kaymer, Spurs, Kings wrap up titles
- Martin Kaymer absolutely destroyed the field at the 114th U.S. Open at Pinehurst. He finished the weekend at 9-under par, a whopping eight shots in front of second-place finishers Erik Compton and Rickie Fowler.
- The San Antonio Spurs claimed their fifth NBA title on Sunday night, defeating the Miami Heat in a 104-87 Game 5 thrashing. Kawhi Leonard, at just 22 years old, was named the Finals MVP.
- The Los Angeles Kings clinched their second Stanley Cup in three years on Friday night, earning a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers to secure the series in five games. Alec Martinez scored the game- and series-winner in the second overtime, and Justin Williams was named the Conn Smythe Trophy winner.
