Tennis legend hospitalized, has internal bleeding

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Former champion Mats Wilander has been admitted to a hospital in Melbourne following a fall on the eve of the Australian Open. The 47-year-old Swede is being treated for a laceration to one of his kidneys, according to a post on the Facebook page for his company, Wilander on Wheels. The post says the internal bleeding stopped on Monday but Wilander will be "out of commission for a while." Wilander, who won three Australian Opens among his seven Grand Slam singles titles, fell at his apartment in Melbourne late Saturday. He was scheduled to host a daily highlight show for television channel Eurosport at this year's tournament.

White Sox top pitching prospect Lucas Giolito throws no-hitter in Triple-A Charlotte

Lucas Giolito threw a seven-inning no-hitter in Game 1 of Thursday's Charlotte Knights doubleheader.

The White Sox top pitching prospect recorded three strikeouts and issued three walks in a 4-0 win.

The Knights' Twitter account posted a video of the final out:

Perhaps the best part? It was against the Syracuse Chiefs, the Washington Nationals' minor league team.

The Nationals selected Giolito with the 16th pick in the 2012 MLB Draft. Last offseason, the 22-year-old was traded to the White Sox — along with Reynaldo Lopez and Dane Dunning — as a key component in exchange for Adam Eaton.

The last Knights pitcher to throw a no-hitter was Andre Rienzo on July 25, 2013 against the Indianapolis Indians, which also came in the first game of a doubleheader.
