The 38-year-old Tkachuk played in 1,201 games in his career.

Tkachuk scored 1,065 points on 538 goals and 527 assists, 2,219 penalty minutes. In January, the five-time All-Star and four-time U.S. Olympian became the fourth player in NHL history with 1,000 points and 2,200 penalty minutes.

Tkachuk this season had 13 goals and 19 assists in 67 games. He played for the Blues since the trade from Phoenix in 2000-2001 aside from a brief stint with the Atlanta Thrashers at the end of the 2006-2007.

A native of Melrose, Massachusetts, Tkachuk was a first-round pick of the Winnipeg Jets in 1990. In his prime he was one of the NHL’s top power forwards and peaked with 52 goals and 228 penalty minutes in 1996-97.

John Daly is expected to play in a Nationwide Tour event in Arkansas next month on a sponsor’s exemption.

Executive director Patricia Brown, of the Fort Smith Classic, said last week that Daly has committed to play in the June 17-20 tournament, which would be his first Nationwide Tour event since February 1991. Later that year, Daly won the PGA Championship.

The controversial Daly is from Dardanelle, about 75 miles from Fort Smith, Arkansas. Daly is scheduled to perform at a concert at Fort Smith River Park the night of June 17.

Lee Westwood leads the Players Championship after 3 rounds

compiled from staff and wire reports

Lee Westwood is one round away from winning one of the biggest tournaments of his career, the Players Championship. Lee is kind of a quiet golfer, but he is solid, 16 years on tour and 30 wins worldwide so he is capable.

Westwood watched a two-shot lead turn into a two-shot deficit. Over the final holes, Robert Allenby picked up three shots on the last three holes, while Heath Slocum dropped four shots on the last six holes.

The Saturday round ended with Westwood hitting a daring hot with a 6-iron through a gap in the trees for a par on the 18th hole for a 2-under 70 to finish the third round with a one-shot lead, same as he started. He also has Masters champion Phil Mickelson around to give him a run for the money.

Mickelson suddenly appeared back in the picture with a 66 that put him five shots back.

Tiger Woods is 10 shots back, courtesy of a bogey-bogey finish for a par 71.

compiled from staff and wire reports

Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera is always a thorn in the side of the Indians whether Cleveland is a good team or a bad team. Since coming to the Tigers in a trade with the Florida Marlins in 2008, Cabrera has hit .331 (54 of 163) with 11 homers and 37 RBI’s in 40 games against The Tribe.

The first baseman delivered a two-run single with the bases loaded in the seventh inning, leading Detroit to a 6-4 win over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday.

Cabrera hit a line drive off Cleveland closer Kerry Wood (0-1) and broke a 3-3 tie helping Detroit to its 10th consecutive win over the Indians. The Tigers are 18-4 in the series the last two years, outscoring Cleveland 116-79.

Justin Verlander (3-2) gave up three runs over six innings, striking out nine. A year ago, the right-hander was 4-0 with a 0.90 ERA and three games of 11 strikeouts against the Indians.

Joel Zumaya pitched two innings and Jose Valverde worked the ninth for his eighth save.

Austin Kearns drove in three runs for Cleveland, which has lost five straight and nine of 11. The Tigers, avoided their first four-game losing streak since losing five straight from September 8-12, 2009.

The Cincinnati Reds offense is starting to pick up. They scored 7 runs on Friday night and 14 on Saturday night.

Speaking of Saturday’s game, they won convincingly. No late inning heroics needed. The 2010 edition of the Cincinnati Reds has been one of major league baseball’s most dramatic and exciting teams, getting nine of their 15 wins in their final at bat.  Close games have been the norm for this bunch.

Joey Votto hammered a two-run homer in his first at-bat, and Jonny Gomes broke open the game with a bases-loaded single in the seventh off Carlos Zambrano, leading to a 14-2 win over the up-and-down Chicago Cubs.

Votto extended his hitting streak to seven games when he connected off left-hander Tom Gorzelanny (1-4), who hadn’t allowed a homer by a left-hander batter. Gomes’ single sparked a five-run rally in the seventh, and Ryan Hanigan added his first career grand slam an inning later as the Reds banged around Chicago’s relief corps for the second time in two days.

Aaron Harang, despite 51 temperatures, is now 2-4 and struck out nine, a season-high in 6 2/3 innings of pitching. He is not used to this kind of run support. The Reds usually have trouble scoring runs when he pitches, because they are matched up against the other teams ace starter.
