Yorkshire wrapped up an emphatic innings-and-44-run victory over Hampshire in the County Championship at the Ageas Bowl.
Seamer Ben Coad trapped Rilee Rossouw lbw, and then had Gareth Berg caught at first slip and struck Ian Holland on his pads off consecutive balls as the hosts lost 3-5 to slip to 59-8 on day four.
Liam Dawson (92) battled hard, scoring his second half-century of the match and sharing a 131-run ninth-wicket partnership with Keith Barker (64), before Barker was eventually caught behind off Steven Patterson.
Duanne Olivier secured Yorkshire's first win in Division One this season as Dawson fell an agonising eight runs short of a century when he picked out Tom Kohler-Cadmore at midwicket.
Kent came out on top against fellow newly-promoted side Warwickshire, clinching an impressive eight-wicket win at Edgbaston for their first Division One victory since 2010. SCORECARD
Harry Podmore was the pick of the Kent bowlers, taking 5-62, but Matthew Milnes removed both Tim Ambrose (107) and Henry Brookes (84) after the Bears duo had put on 144 for the eighth wicket to end Kent's hopes of an innings win.
The visitors were left needing 123 for victory from 31 overs after tea and chalked off their target in 19.4 overs, thanks to Zak Crawley (45), Matt Renshaw (48no) and Daniel Bell-Drummond (18no) after Sean Dickson had fallen for five.
Reigning champions Surrey began their title defence with a draw at home to Essex as captain Rory Burns (98), Ollie Pope (69) and Will Jacks (54) lifted them to 324-6 declared and into a lead of 271. SCORECARD
Essex spinner Simon Harmer took five wickets, including Burns, Pope and Jacks - England opener Burns denied a century when he was caught by opposition skipper Ryan ten Doeschate at silly point.
Ten Doeschate's team then batted out one over before the game was stopped - with Jamie Porter facing six scoreless deliveries from Burns as Sir Alastair Cook watched from the non-striker's end.
Lancashire wrapped up a seven-wicket victory over Middlesex in a battle of the Division Two heavyweights as Glenn Maxwell (5-40) and James Anderson (3-29) helped skittle the Londoners for 200 at Lord's. SCORECARD
Maxwell took two wickets in as many balls, including pinning Eoin Morgan lbw for a golden duck, before Dawid Malan (51) denied him a hat-trick - but Malan fell to the Australian later on, who completed his five-for when he trapped last man Tim Murtagh (0) leg before.
Lancashire then scored the 39 runs needed for victory, though did lose Keaton Jennings (8), Brooke Guest (11) and Maxwell (5), before Haseeb Hameed (13no) and Rob Jones (1no) took them over the line.
Sussex clinched a six-wicket victory over Durham with Stiaan van Zyl and Laurie Evans making light work of chasing down the 68 runs they required to hit their target of 212. SCORECARD
South African Van Zyl hit an unbeaten century, finishing on 101 not out, and Evans made 51, as the third-wicket pair shared a 112-run partnership.
Worcestershire trumped Leicestershire at Grace Road as Charlie Morris' 7-45 led his side to an innings-and-18-run win - the Foxes bowled out for 233 in their second knock. SCORECARD
Derbyshire batted themselves to a draw against Gloucestershire at Bristol as Wayne Madsen (204no), Alex Hughes (109no) and on-loan Middlesex man Tom Lace (57) making scores of substance. SCORECARD
The visitors resumed the final day on 97-2, with a slender lead of 38, but extended that to 388-3 with Madsen and Hughes putting on an unbroken fourth-wicket stand of 278.
The Sophia Gardens Cardiff run-fest also ended in a stalemate with Northamptonshire making a mammoth 750 all out in reply to Glamorgan's 570-8 declared, before the hosts reached 70-1 in their second dig. SCORECARD
Northants batsman Rob Keogh (150) became the sixth man to hit a hundred in a match in which just 19 wickets fell in 370.3 overs and 1,390 runs were scored.
