RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Battered and bloodied, Bastian Schweinsteiger kept fighting. No Argentine tackle or foul would keep the German midfielder from lifting the World Cup trophy.

Schweinsteiger battled through the final and Germany won its fourth title with a 1-0 win over Argentina on Sunday at the Maracana.

The 29-year-old midfielder was twice led off the field to be treated but returned to hold Germany together.

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Miroslav Klose has had a good week.

Tuesday: Become the World Cup's all-time leading scorer.

Sunday: Win the World Cup.

If the 36-year-old Klose does choose to retire now, it'll be with those two very big achievements.

It didn't even matter to Klose that he was substituted in the 1-0 win over Argentina in the final at the Maracana Stadium. Klose came off for Mario Goetze, who went on to score Germany's title-clinching goal in extra time.

Futures game: Gallo gives US 3-2 win over World

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Joey Gallo let loose his powerful left-handed swing on a too-good-to-pass-up pitch over the plate, producing a soaring two-run homer to give his team the lead for good.

The real damage was done during batting practice, though, before the All-Star Futures game. One of Gallo's head-turning drives in warmups whacked the top of the windshield of a promotional pickup truck parked on the concourse beyond right field.

The glass was shattered.
