July 12th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

UNDATED (AP) — Carlos Beltran fell a home run shy of the cycle in the St. Louis Cardinals’ 3-2 win over the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Beltran had three hits and drove in a run.

Edward Mujica pitched the ninth for his 26th save in 27 opportunities.

Allen’s 63 gives him 5-shot lead at US Senior Open


July 12th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Michael Allen shot a 7-under 63 Friday and broke away from the pack for a 5-stroke lead after the second round of the U.S. Senior Open. Allen was among seven players who shared the first-round lead at 3-under. He birdied five of the first eight holes and eagled the par-5 14th while shooting his best round of the year in hot, breezy conditions at the par-70 Omaha Country Club. Allen’s 36-hole lead is the largest in the event’s 34-year history.

Rocco Mediate, at 5-under, is his closest pursuer. Mediate finished with 14 straight pars while shooting a bogey-free 67. Jeff Sluman, who also shot 67, is at 4-under after missing an 8-foot par putt on the 18th. Allen was short on his birdie putt on the last hole, ending his bid to match the U.S. Senior Open record of 62 by Loren Roberts at Prairie Dunes in 2006.

SILVIS, Ill. (AP) — Defending champion Zach Johnson, Lucas Glover and rookie Patrick Reed are tied for the lead following second-round play Friday at the John Deere Classic. Johnson shot a 5-under 66 to maintain a share of the lead for the second day in a row.

Reed shot a 63 in the morning session, just one year after missing the cut at TPC Deere Run, while Glover finished at 9 under on Friday. Australia’s Matt Jones is a shot back at 11 under. Troy Matteson leads a pack at 10-under, while three-time winner Steve Stricker is among those at 9 under.

Kenny Perry Tied for Lead at US Senior Open


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


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.

Cardinals recall Martinez from Triple-A


July 12th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

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.
