WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- We invite you to follow WWAY Sports on Twitter @WWAYSports.

ASHEBORO, NC (WWAY) -- In a game full of drama, hits, errors and ejections Wilmington Post 10 somehow prevailed over the state champs from Virginia at the SE Regionals for American Legion Baseball. Virginia led 10-7 going to the bottom of the 8th, but Post 10 scored two in the 8th and two in the 9th to win.

Monday's Schedule: Randolph County (host team) vs. Wilmington Post 10. Post 10 hasn't lost in this double elimination tournament. If Randolph County wins on Monday afternoon the two two teams will play again on Monday night to determine which team gets to advance to the American Legion World Series later this month.

PITTSFORD, NY (AP) -- Jason Dufner has won his first major title with a two-stroke victory over Jim Furyk at the PGA Championship.

Dufner bogeyed the final two holes Sunday for a 2-under 68 that was good enough to hold off the 2003 U.S. Open champion. The winning score was 10-under 270.

Henrik Stenson finished three shots back.

Dufner made up for the heartache of the 2011 PGA, when he went to the 15th tee with a four-stroke lead in Atlanta. He dunked that shot in the water, squandered the advantage and lost to Keegan Bradley in a playoff.

There was no such collapse on another warm, sunny day at Oak Hill.

From tee to green, Dufner was nearly perfect. If not for a bit of a shaky putter, the margin would've been even more.

SPARTANBURG, SC (AP) -- Panthers coach Ron Rivera says backup fullback Mike Zordich has torn the ACL in his left knee and will be placed on injured reserve this week.

Rivera made the announcement after Sunday night's practice at Wofford College.

Zordich, who was facing an uphill battle for a spot on the 53-man roster, was injured in Carolina's preseason game Friday night against the Chicago Bears.

Rivera also says cornerback James Dockery broke his thumb during the game and will need surgery but should return in a couple weeks. The team is waiting to hear on the extent of the shoulder injury suffered by backup offensive tackle Bruce Campbell.

Rivera also says wide receiver Armanti Edwards strained his hamstring and could miss a few practices.

WATKINS GLEN, NY (AP) -- Kyle Busch won at Watkins Glen International on Sunday, atoning for a year ago when he lost a sure victory on the last lap.

On a two-lap dash to the finish in the caution-filled Sprint Cup race, Busch held off Brad Keselowski. Keselowski finished second in this race a third straight time.

Marcos Ambrose was on the pole and dominated, but his luck at The Glen finally ran out. He was seeking his third straight Cup win at the track.

Just past the halfway point of the 90-lap race he had to pit under caution after Busch had come in under green. That gave Busch the lead and he held on through a series of cautions over the final 39 laps.

The field didn't have to worry about five-time Watkins Glen winner Tony Stewart. He is out indefinitely with a broken leg.

WATKINS GLEN, NY (AP) -- Three-time Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart has been released from the hospital and is resting at home.

His team, Stewart-Haas Racing, tweeted the news on Sunday night: "TonyStewart is out of the hospital & resting as comfortably as he can at home. Thx for the thoughts & prayers." The tweet closed with a "SmokeWillRise" hashtag.

Stewart broke his right leg in two places last Monday night in a sprint car race in Iowa and is out indefinitely after two surgeries to repair the damage.

A five-time winner at Watkins Glen International, Stewart missed race Sunday, snapping his streak of 521 consecutive Cup starts and dropping him six spots to 17th in the Sprint Cup standings.

Max Papis drove Stewart's No. 14 Chevrolet and finished 15th. Several drivers had stickers on their cars honoring Stewart with the message: "Get Well Smoke 14."

The team is expected to name a replacement driver for Stewart as early as Monday.

MOSCOW (AP) -- Usain Bolt reclaimed his 100-meter world championship title Sunday.

The Jamaican great was pushed throughout the race during a steady rain, but he won back the title he lost two years ago in South Korea when a false start disqualified him from the final.

Bolt won the race at Luzhniki Stadium in 9.77 seconds. He set the 100 world record of 9.58 seconds at the 2009 worlds in Berlin.

Justin Gatlin of the United States took the silver medal after taking an early lead. Nesta Carter of Jamaica won the bronze.
