At least 50 fans were injured and 40 arrested after Red Star and Partizan fans clashed before a soccer game Saturday in Belgrade. The match was delayed for 40 minutes as hooligans threw stones and fought with sticks and Serbia riot police tried to break up the fights. And play had to be stopped for seven minutes because fans threw flares onto the field.
St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, the day after his twisted his ankle on a rather benign-looking swing during an at-bat.

Sunday, the Nationals will try to do what they have done in two of their last three series — salvage a game in an otherwise frustrating series. Miami native Gio Gonzalez will take the mound against former National Dan Haren, who gave up three runs to Washington last year in the only start he’s made against the Nationals since pitching for them in 2013.
