Snedeker takes 1-shot lead into final round at Wyndham
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Brandt Snedeker took a one-stroke lead into the final round of the weather-delayed Wyndham Championship after finishing the third round Sunday with a 2-under 68.
Snedeker was at 16-under 194 through three rounds of the final PGA Tour event of the regular season. Brian Gay and David Hearn were at 15 under, with Gay shooting a 62 and Hearn a 64.
Thirty players were on the course Saturday when play was suspended because of severe weather. After a delay of 3 hours, 23 minutes, organizers chose to hold things up until Sunday morning.
Snedeker, who shot an opening-round 59 to become just the 10th tour player to break 60, is chasing his first victory since 2016 and his second career win at this tournament.
Urena set to start at Washington
UNDATED (AP) — Jose Urena is set to start for the Marlins against Washington at Nationals Park. Urena’s previous outing lasted only one pitch — when he hit Braves rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. with a fastball, setting off a bench-clearing incident in Atlanta, and was ejected.
Major League Baseball suspended Urena six games, but the right-hander has appealed and can continue to play. There’s speculation Urena will drop his appeal after this game, meaning he would miss the Marlins’ series next weekend at home against the Braves.
Gio Gonzalez starts for the Nationals. The left-hander has a 2.25 ERA in two starts against Miami this season.
Also on the Sunday schedule:
— Yankees lefty J.A. Happ starts against Toronto, the team that traded him late last month. The 35-year-old Happ has won all three of his starts for New York. Ryan Borucki pitches for the visiting Blue Jays.
— Astros second baseman Jose Altuve is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment for Triple-A Fresno in a game at Tacoma. The reigning AL MVP has been out since July 25 with knee trouble. Minus Altuve, the World Series champs have dropped 12 of 19 and lost their six-game lead in the AL West. Oakland has tied the Astros atop the division and will try for a sweep at the Coliseum when Sean Manaea starts against Justin Verlander.
— Todd Frazier, Michael Conforto and Scott Kingery will be back in familiar territory when the Mets and Phillies play under the lights in the Little League Classic at Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The game will be held at Bowman Field, which seats about 2,500 fans as the home of the Williamsport Crosscutters, a Philadelphia affiliate in the Class A New York-Penn League. Nearby is the field where Frazier, Conforto and Kingery all played in the Little League World Series.
