Spieth beats Gillis in playoff, wins John Deere Classic


July 13th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

SILVIS, Ill. (AP) — Jordan Spieth beat Tom Gillis on the second hole of a playoff to win the John Deere Classic on Sunday for his fourth victory of the season. The 46-year-old Gillis, who was attempting to become the oldest first-time winner on the PGA Tour in 20 years, sent an approach into the water. Spieth made par for his second win at TPC Deere Run in three years.

Now Spieth heads to the British Open in search of his third consecutive major championship. Spieth and Gillis both finished the final round at 20-under 264. Zach Johnson and Danny Lee tied for third at 19 under.

July 13th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Gregory Polanco capped another late rally, driving in Jung Ho Kang with two outs in the 10th inning to lift the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 6-5 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday night.

The Cardinals took a 5-3 lead in the top of the 10th on a two-run double by Randal Grichuk off Arquimedes Caminero (1-1). Pittsburgh, which won in 14 innings on a homer by Andrew McCutchen on Saturday, did it again 24 hours later against St. Louis All-Star closer Trevor Rosenthal (1-2).

Starling Marte brought Pittsburgh within a run with an RBI single in the bottom of the 10th. Francisco Cervelli tied it with a single and Polanco followed two batters later with a looping single to right for his fourth hit of the game.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Mark Buehrle pitched seven strong innings, Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run homer and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Kansas City 6-2 Saturday to snap the Royals’ six-game winning streak. Buehrle limited the Royals to two runs and five hits while improving to 4-0 with a 1.24 ERA in his past four starts against them.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Andrew McCutchen’s two-run home run in the 14th inning capped Pittsburgh’s third rally of the night and the Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-5 Saturday night. Jhonny Peralta’s single off Vance Worley in the top of the inning drove in Matt Carpenter and gave the Cardinals a 5-4 lead.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals recalled relievers Sam Tuivailala and Nick Greenwood from Triple-A Memphis on Saturday to bolster the bullpen for the final two games before the All-Star break. Right-hander Mitch Harris was placed on the disabled list and first baseman Xavier Scruggs was sent down to Memphis.

SILVIS, Ill. (AP) — Jordan Spieth shot a career-best 10-under 61 Saturday to grab a two-shot lead at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois.
