Authorities say the 43-year-old Ortiz was shot at close range in an ambush at a bar in Santo Domingo Sunday evening.

TORONTO (AP) – Kevin Durant took the practice floor yesterday for the first time in more than a month, giving the Golden State Warriors hope that he’ll play in Game 5 of the NBA Finals tonight at Toronto. Durant has been out since suffering a strained calf during Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against Houston. Coach Steve Kerr had said the plan was to see if Durant could clear some hurdles that he hasn’t crossed during his recovery. Kerr said earlier in the series that Durant could return after completing one practice.

PARIS (AP) – Rafael Nadal pulled away in what had suddenly become a tight final to beat Dominic Thiem 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 for his record-extending 12th French Open championship. It raises Nadal’s Grand Slam title count to 18, within two of Roger Federer’s record for a man.

LANCASTER, Ontario (AP) – Rory McIlroy ran away with the Canadian Open, closing with a 9-under 61 for a seven-shot victory over Shane Lowry and Webb Simpson. McIlroy began the day in a three-way tie for the lead before reeling off five birdies in his first seven holes, none from longer than 8 feet. He had a chance to fire a 59 as he approached 18, but his shot from a greenside bunker went long and he ended up tapping in for bogey to finish at a tournament-record 22-under 258.
