Sports Minute: Here is the latest New York sports news from The Associated Press

Posted: Updated:

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) - For a guy who has won all of three PGA Tour events, Brooks Koepka has a golf legacy that already is secure. That's how it should be for winning back-to-back U.S. Opens. He will go for a third straight next year at Pebble Beach.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) - Somehow tying a U.S. Open record with a final-round 63 wasn't totally satisfying for Tommy Fleetwood. He says he wanted a 62. The Englishman nearly got it. A birdie putt from 8 feet on No. 18 broke right and skidded past the hole. He ultimately finished second behind repeat winner Brooks Koepka. It's his best result in a major.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) - Dustin Johnson faded late in the U.S. Open. He three-putted three times on the back nine and finished third, two strokes behind Brooks Koepka. The two workout buddies played together on the final day but did not speak. Koepka says both are competitive. He acknowledges, "There's a little bit of stress."

PHOENIX (AP) - Brandon Nimmo and Asdrubal Cabrera homered off Brad Boxberger in a four-run ninth inning and the New York Mets rallied to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-3. The Diamondbacks led 3-1 entering the ninth and Boxberger struck out the first two batters before the roof fell in his third blown save in 20 tries. The Mets have won two in a row for the first time since May 20-21.

NEW YORK (AP) - Wilmer Font held the high-scoring Yankees in check in the latest Tampa Bay game "started" by a reliever, and the Rays held off New York 3-1 Sunday to avoid a sweep. Matt Duffy drove in two runs with a second-inning single for his first multi-RBI game in over a month.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) - Curtis Strange knows what it takes to win back-to-back U.S. Open titles and he thinks Brooks Koepka can win again next year at Pebble Beach. Strange was the last person to win the tournament twice in a row before Koepka joined the fraternity with a one-stroke victory over Tommy Fleetwood. No one has won three in a row since Willie Anderson from 1903-05

NEW YORK (AP) - Andy Pettitte made his debut at Old-Timers' Day at Yankee Stadium, a festive day that featured Hall of Famers Whitey Ford and Reggie Jackson and the always popular Johnny Damon and Paul O'Neill. Jason Giambi and current Yankees manager Aaron Boone were among the other first-timers at the 72nd annual event. Nick Swisher got the big hit of the afternoon, launching a home run in a playful exhibition before the current Yankees took on Tampa Bay.

WHIPPANY, N.J. (AP) - Morris Claiborne's head was spinning at times and his heart tugging at him for several weeks last summer. The New York Jets cornerback was trying to settle in with his new team, but his mind was on his newborn twins _ one of whom was born extremely underweight. Claiborne's days were whirlwinds of hurrying between practices, meetings and the hospital. The twins are healthy nearly a year later, and Claiborne plans to celebrate a very special Father's Day.
