(NECN/AP) - Chris Collins has the morning's top sports stories, including:

-Red Sox beat Cubs

The Boston Red Sox beat the Chicago Cubs 7-4 on Sunday night. 

David Ortiz homered and Ryan Kalish had a tiebreaking RBI single to lead the Sox to victory. 

Kalish was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket before the game. He also scored on Daniel Nanva's squeeze bunt to cap Boston's three-run seventh inning that gave the Red Sox a 6-3 lead. 

Matt Albers pitched one inning to pick up the win.

-Heat take series lead behind LeBron's 29

It's advantage Miami Heat right now in the NBA Finals.
 
LeBron James scored 29 points and 14 rebounds, and the Heat rallied from a 10-point second-half deficit to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 91-85 in Game 3 of the NBA Finals to take a 2-1 series lead.
 
Dwyane (dwayn) Wade scored 25 and Chris Bosh added 10 for Miami. Kevin Durant scored 25 points, Russell Westbrook added 19 and Kendrick Perkins finished with 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Thunder, who were just 15-for-24 from the foul line.
 
Game 4 is Tuesday in Miami. Game 5 is Thursday night, also on the Heat home floor.

-US Golf Open

Webb Simpson closed with a 2-under 68 to win a fog-shrouded final round at the Olympic Club to capture the 112th U.S. Open for his first major title. Simpson, whose previous best finish in a major was a tie for 14th at last year's U.S. Open, won the war of attrition on the final round and finished one over for the tournament. He rallied from four shots down on the final day of tough scoring at the Open.
 
Third-round co-leader Graeme McDowell and Michael Thompson tied for second, one shot back of Simpson. Jim Furyk was in the hunt until a bogey on the final hole and finished two back of Simpson.
 
Halfway co-leader Tiger Woods had a long weekend. Woods bogeyed his first three holes and five of his first six during a round of 3-over 73. He finished seven over for the tournament, going 75-73 on the weekend. He tied for 21st but said afterward there were "a lot of positives" to take from the Open, insisting he was hitting the ball "very well."
