Nick Weglarz saved the game in the top of the 11th inning by throwing out Andy Tracy from left field at home plate, and then delivered a two out game-winning RBI single in the bottom half to give Columbus the win.

Nick Weglarz (MiLB)

Mickelson struggles; Bohn and Overton lead Colonial (Thursday)

compiled from staff and wire reports

On a hot day with great scoring conditions Thursday, Phil Mickelson shot an opening 1-over-par 71, eight strokes behind co-leaders Jason Bohn, Jeff Overton and PGA Tour rookie Blake Adams in the Colonial tournament in the Dallas suburb of Fort Worth.

It is going to take a comeback of monumental proportions for Mickelson to win his third Colonial tournament, a win that would push him to number 1 in the world ranking ahead of Tiger Woods for the first time in his career. He has much work to do to make the cut and participate in the tournament’s second “Pink Out” during the third round Saturday.

Blake Adams (PGA)

After 75 of the 121 golfers in the finished under par, Mickelson was tied for 89th place.

Overton shot his career-best round after being even through seven holes, while Bohn, who won last month in New Orleans, had his season-best round despite congestion so bad he could not hear out of his left ear. Adams was in the last group of the day.

Brian Davis was alone in fourth after shooting a 64 despite having an abscess tooth.

There were a group of nine players at 65, one shot better than John Daly’s 66, who had his first bogey-free round in two years. Defending champion Steve Stricker shot a 68.

Australian Jason Day who won the Byron Nelson Championship in Irving, Texas last week, calls Ft. Worth home and plays out of Colonial, has a chance to become the only player other than Ben Hogan in 1946 to win both suburban Dallas tournaments: Irving-Ft. Worth the same year. Irving and Ft. Worth are only 25 miles apart. Day opened with a 66.
