Taiwan's Yani Tseng won the Northwest Arkansas Championship at Rogers on Sunday for her third LPGA Tour victory of the year, shooting a six-under-par 65 to rally past second-round leader Michelle Wie . Tseng birdied four of five holes early on the back nine, then held on for a one-stroke victory over Wie with a birdie on No. 18. Tseng finished at 13-under 200. Wie (69) gave up the lead on the back nine — the same half of the course she played in seven-under 28 during a scintillating stretch Saturday.

For the 2010 All-Star game, Anaheim was the site, Angel Stadium the ballpark, and Torii Hunter the host, a role he long hoped for that became official when players voted the Angels center fielder onto the roster July 4. He seemed excited that day, sounding like a campaigning politician when he noted how he would go to all the events, "have some fun, smile and kiss some babies." Next time, if there is one, he may want to concede the gig to someone else, because, like other hosts before him, Hunter struggled when it was time to play ball.

It took a little longer than he had hoped. And it wasn't as stylish as he probably had wished. But none of that made Martin Vasquez's first victory as an MLS coach any less special. "I'm a little emotional right now," Vasquez said. "It means a lot. It's very special." Yet, that might be the only memorable thing about Chivas USA's 2-0 victory over the New York Red Bulls on Saturday in front of 12,597 at the Home Depot Center. After opening the season with two sloppy losses in which it failed to score, Vasquez's team was only slightly better for much of this game.

Andy Roddick's softest shots made the biggest impact Sunday. He kept Tomas Berdych out of rhythm by hitting delicate backhands, loopy forehands and changeup first serves. By the ninth game, Berdych was so flummoxed that he lost track of the score. There was no confusion about the final result: Roddick beat Berdych, 7-5, 6-4, to win the Sony Ericsson Open at Key Biscayne, Fla. It was Roddick's fifth title in a Masters 1000 tournament — one level below the Grand Slams — and his first since 2006.

In Los Angeles, where medical marijuana dispensaries outnumber Starbucks and McDonald's restaurants combined, a mood-altering beverage with a cannabis-oriented marketing campaign is gaining traction. Southern California has become the bestselling market for Mary Jane's Relaxing Soda, a sugary drink laced with kava, a South Pacific root purported to have sedative properties. Matt Moody, a Denver nutritional supplement developer who created the beverage, said the name is an unabashed reference to weed, though the relaxant compounds in kava are chemically unrelated to those in marijuana.

Shaun White used to battle with his older brother Jesse for control over the family's PlayStation game console while the two grew up near San Diego. Now, at 23, the Olympic gold medalist in men's halfpipe stars in his second video game, Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage, set to hit shelves Sunday. Developed by Ubisoft Entertainment, the game is a sequel to White's first title, which sold more than 3 million copies since its release last November. White may not be a household name, but neither was Tony Hawk when he came out with his first video game 10 years ago, Tony Hawk Pro Skater.
