Kenny Perry Tied for Lead at US Senior Open

Sports

July 12th, 2013 by Jim Field

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Kenny Perry shot a 3-under 67 on Thursday and is tied for the lead at the U.S. Senior Open, putting together a solid start in his bid for a second straight win in a senior major.  Perry, who won the Senior Players Championship two weeks ago at Fox Chapel, Pa., made five birdies against two bogeys at Omaha Country Club. And he’s got plenty of company atop a crowded leaderboard.   Michael Allen and Jay Don Blake also shot a 67 on Thursday morning, and Gary Hallberg, Mark O’Meara, Tom Lehman and Fred Funk posted the same score in the afternoon.   There had never been as many as seven co-leaders after the first round at a U.S. Senior Open. The previous record was five in 1997.

Heat Illness Forces Jacobsen Out of US Senior Open

Sports

July 12th, 2013 by Jim Field

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Peter Jacobsen has withdrawn from the U.S. Senior Open in Omaha, Neb., because of heat-related illness.

Jacobsen was treated by Omaha Fire and Rescue paramedics after he finished nine holes Thursday. The 2004 U.S. Senior Open champion started his round on the 10th hole at Omaha Country Club and shot a 3-over-par 38. He didn’t require additional medical care.

The 59-year-old Jacobsen, who won seven times on the PGA Tour and has two career victories on the Champions Tour, was playing with Barry Lane and Gary Koch. They teed off shortly after 7:30 a.m., when temperatures were in the mid-70s. The high is forecast to be in the mid-80s.

CHICAGO (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have recalled top pitching prospect Carlos Martinez from Triple-A Memphis and optioned right-hander Michael Blazek to their top minor league team. The moves were announced on Thursday.

A 21-year-old right-hander, Martinez made seven relief appearances for the Cardinals in May and was 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA. He’s been starting in the minors but is expected to work out of the bullpen. Blazek made four appearances, allowing three runs over three innings, and did not figure in a decision.

July 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

SILVIS, Ill. (AP) — Defending champion and Iowa native Zach Johnson, shot a 7-under 64 and is tied with Camilo Villegas for the lead after Thursday’s opening round of the John Deere Classic. It was the 17th straight round in the 60s at TPC Deere Run for Johnson, who grew up roughly 100 miles away in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Matt Bettencourt made the field as a late alternate and shot a 6-under 65. He’s tied for second with Daniel Summerhays and Brendon de Jonge. Boo Weekley is among a pack of players at 5-under 66. Three-time tournament champion Steve Stricker is at 4-under 67 heading into Friday’s second round.

Jackson, Rizzo lead Cubs over Cardinals, 3-0

Sports

July 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Edwin Jackson earned his third straight win, combining with four relievers on a four-hitter, and Anthony Rizzo drove in all the runs to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 3-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night. St. Louis had the tying run at the plate in the ninth inning after Kevin Gregg dropped a throw covering first on Allen Craig’s grounder, and David Freese walked.

Alfonso Soriano made a shoestring catch on Jon Jay’s liner to end the game. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny was then seen arguing vehemently with plate umpire Dan Bellino and appeared to make contact with him. The Cubs escaped with the win, and Gregg got his 16th save in 18 chances. Jackson (6-10) struck out five without a walk in seven innings. Starlin Castro added three singles and scored two runs for the Cubs, who won for the fifth time in six games.

St. Louis Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday left Thursday’s game against the Chicago Cubs because of an apparent leg injury. Holliday clutched his right hamstring when he was halfway to first base on a grounder to shortstop in the fourth inning and walked gingerly off the field after being tended to by a trainer. He did not take the field in the bottom half. Allen Craig moved from first base to left field, while Matt Adams took over at first and moved into the third spot in the order. The extent of Holliday’s injury was not immediately announced.
