Thompson's 41 points, 11 3s save Golden State's season

Klay Thompson made a playoff-record 11 3-pointers and scored 41 points, and the defending champion Golden State Warriors forced a seventh game in the Western Conference finals with a 108-101 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night.


The Nevada baseball team advanced to its first Mountain West Championship finals game in program history before falling short, concluding a banner season with an impressive postseason run. The Wolf Pack fell to second-seeded hosts New Mexico, 14-4, on Saturday evening at Santa Ana Star Field in the championship game.


The Reno Aces dropped their second consecutive game, falling to the Round Rock Express by a 4-3 score on Saturday night at Dell Diamond. Aces right-hander Braden Shipley (@shipley25) logged his second career complete game, but the Express hit three solo home runs off the former Nevada Wolf Pack star, including two by right fielder Ryan Strausborger. Reno had several chances to provide more run support for the righty, but they hit just 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position.


Buster Posey hit a pair of three-run homers, including a tiebreaking drive as part of a six-run eighth inning, and the San Francisco Giants rallied for a 10-5 win over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday after their bullpen blew a lead.


Billy Butler and Khris Davis each homered and drove in three runs and the Oakland Athletics beat the Detroit Tigers 12-3 on Saturday, ending a three-game losing streak.
