Saturday Sports Update

Top left: At age 37, Venus Williams (right) had a chance to become the oldest woman ever to win a Grand Slam title in the Open Era.  However, an eighth major crown was not to be.  Spaniard Garbine Muguruza (left) defeated Williams 7-5, 6-0 to take home her second Grand Slam championship; her first came at the expense of Venus' younger sister, Serena, at last year's French Open.  Photo by AFP

Top right: The Boston Red Sox celebrate at home plate after defeating the New York Yankees 5-4 at Fenway Park on Friday.  The Yankees led 4-3 going into the bottom of the 9th, but closer Aroldis Chapman failed to record a single out in the inning.  An error by second baseman Ronald Torreyes brought home the tying run, and a bases-loaded walk scoring the winning run.  Photo by USA Today

Bottom left: Signed in the offseason to bolster their receiving corps, the Minnesota Vikings will be without the services of Michael Floyd to begin the 2017 season.  On Friday, the NFL announced that Floyd is suspended for four games for a violation of the league's substance abuse policy.  The violation stems from a DUI arrest last December in Scottsdale, Arizona, when Floyd was with the Arizona Cardinals.  Photo by USA Today

Bottom right: This weekend, it's the 42nd annual First Ward Falcons Club Men's Fastpitch Softball Tournament at Dunkirk's Prommenschenkel Stadium.  Here, Scott Kawski delivers a pitch for Lakeside Club during a Friday afternoon game.  Kawski's team lost a tight game, 8-7 to Dunkirk Fastpitch I.  Photo by Ron Szot
