Landon Donovan has a flair for the dramatic. The 32-year-old soccer star has scored the most goals (57) in United States men's national team history, including one during the 2010 World Cup against Algeria that you might remember. So when Donovan was left off the USMNT roster last Thursday for the upcoming World Cup in Brazil, it was a little surprising. The Los Angeles Galaxy veteran responded to the snub Sunday night in typical fashion. Donovan scored twice (and added an assist) in a 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Union to become the all-time goal king in Major League Soccer history. Reaction to his feat was overwhelming on social media.
Congrats @landondonovan ! Simply the best !

Moving to the Indianapolis 500, Ryan Hunter-Reay beat Helio Castroneves by .06 seconds in the second-slimmest margin of victory in the history of the iconic race. Only Al Unser Jr.'s win over Scott Goodyear in 1992 by .043 was tighter.
Still got it
Finally in baseball, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett tossed his first career no-hitter in a 6-0 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. It was L.A.'s first no-no since Hideo Nomo accomplished the feat in 1996.
