LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Matt Williams has apparently struck out again at marriage.

Williams’ second wife, actress Michelle Williams, filed for divorce Monday from her husband of 3 1/2 years, citing irreconcilable differences.

The couple have no children, although Matt Williams has two daughters and a son from his first marriage, which ended in divorce in 1997.

The demise of Williams’ first marriage, which lasted eight years, prompted his trade from Cleveland to Arizona in 1997. He wanted to play in Phoenix so he could be near his children.

Matt and Michelle Williams were married Jan. 15, 1999.

Michelle Williams, who has film credits under her maiden name Michelle Johnson, was in the 2000 football movie ``The Replacements,″ and in 1984 made her debut in ``Blame It on Rio.″
