Bayern Munich and Dortmund arrived at London's Wembley Stadium on Saturday with only one goal in mind: take home a Champions League title. Ninety minutes and three goals later, Bayern claimed European club soccer's most prestigious title with a 2-1 victory.

Michael Frolik didn't know it when it happened, but over the weekend, he became the first player in Stanley Cup playoff history to score on two penalties. His third period penalty conversion put the Chicago Blackhawks up 4-2 against the Detroit Red Wings, sending the series back to Chicago for game seven.

Across the United States, families fired up the barbecue and enjoyed the afternoon while tuning in to any number of baseball games. The Yankees fell short at Citi Field, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Mets in the subway series, while the Dodgers defeated the Angels in a close game, 8-7.

Speaking of Angels, Angel Pagan became the first player to hit a walk-off-inside-the-park home run since 2004 with his winner against the Rockies on Sunday.
