Allen Johnson avenged his fourth-place finish in the Sydney Olympics by winning the 110-meter hurdles in 13.04 seconds, the world's fastest time this year. Pole vaulter Nick Hysong didn't equal his Sydney gold-medal finish but won bronze before a crowd of 33,140 at Commonwealth Stadium.

Manny Ramirez , who abruptly retired this year amid allegations of banned-substance use, appeared in court Tuesday on charges that he slapped his wife during an argument. Ramirez, 39, could get up to a year in jail if convicted of misdemeanor domestic battery charges. He was released on $2,500 bail Tuesday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., after spending the night in the Broward County Jail, with little to say to waiting reporters. At a brief court appearance, Broward County Judge John Hurley ordered Ramirez to have no direct contact with his wife.
