Second round continues at PGA...Dodgers’ Jansen out at least 10 days...US makes the final at softball worlds
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and the rest of the players who were still on the course when play was suspended at the PGA Championship have resumed their second rounds. All of them are chasing Gary Woodland, whose 66 before the rain rolled through yesterday left him 10 under for the championship. Kevin Kisner also played early and was a shot back. The course is playing soft with no wind and pristine greens, setting the stage for low scores.
DENVER (AP) — The Dodgers are waiting for definitive word on how long closer Kenley Jansen might be out because of an irregular heartbeat. He was put on the 10-day disabled list yesterday. The 30-year-old right-hander was tied for the NL lead with 32 saves. In his absence, Roberts will use a closer-by-committee approach.
DENVER (AP) — The Rockies will see how star third baseman Nolan Arenado is feeling, a day after his early exit during a 5-4 win over the Dodgers at Coors Field. The Gold Glover has been bothered by a sore shoulder for a week and tweaked it while turning a double play in the third inning.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Boston’s J.D. Martinez has become the first major leaguer this season to top the century mark in RBIs. He’s at 101 after driving in two more last night at Baltimore. The AL East-leading Red Sox have 45 games left for him to keep piling up the total. Martinez set a career high with 104 RBIs last year while playing for Detroit and Arizona.
MAKUHARI, Japan (AP) — The U.S. has made it into the final of the women’s world softball championship. Pitcher Rachel Garcia drove in the winning run in the eighth inning to lift the Americans to a 4-3 win over host Japan. The winner of the tournament will be awarded an Olympic spot. If Japan wins, the second-place finisher will be granted the Olympic spot because Japan has an automatic berth as host.
