COLUMBIA, S.C. — The South Carolina Supreme Court has summoned suspended Hampton County attorney Alex Murdaugh, who remains jailed in Richland County on a slew of financial charges, to its courtroom on June 22 to show cause why he should not be disbarred.

Yellowstone National Park will partially reopen at 8 a.m. Wednesday, after catastrophic flooding last week destroyed bridges and roads and drove out tourists. The Park Service announced Saturday that visitors will once again be allowed on the park's southern loop, under a license plate system designed to manage the crowds: Those with even-numbered plates will be allowed on even-numbered days, and those with odd-numbered plates on odd-numbered days. Commercial tours will be allowed whatever their plate number. Visitors had been flocking to Yellowstone during its 150th anniversary celebration. The southern half of the park includes Old Faithful, the rainbow-colored Grand Prismatic Spring, and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and its majestic waterfall.

Pinch-hitter Rhys Hoskins singled home the go-ahead run in the 10th inning and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Washington Nationals 2-1 for their 15th win in 17 games. The Phillies are a season-high five games over .500 and 14-2 since firing former manager Joe Girardi on June 3. The last-place Nationals lost on the day they retired the No. 11 of organizational stalwart Ryan Zimmerman in front of a sellout crowd of 42,730. Philadelphia starter Aaron Nola pitched eight shutout innings for the second time in three starts. He allowed four hits and struck out eight. Washington starter Josiah Gray pitched one-hit ball for six scoreless innings.

He was on the way to making par and wrapping up a round of 1-under 69 that left him at 2 under for the tournament, just two shots off the lead.
