Beware! Tiger Woods is lurking at Augusta, 2 shots off the pace

compiled from staff and wire reports

If anybody out there thought it would take Tiger Woods a few golf tournaments to get into the swing of things, is sadly mistaken.

After two rounds at the Masters tournament in the East Georgia city of Augusta, Tiger heads into Saturday’s third round of the Masters in the next-to-last group, which simply means his comeback from a five-month layoff is going better than anyone could have imagined.

Woods followed up a 4-under par 68 in Thursday’s opening round with a solid 70 in tougher conditions Friday, putting him just two strokes behind a pair of Englishmen who share the lead, Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood.

In three of his four Masters wins, this is where he seized control. Staying  just close enough early and then move into the lead in the third round, wiping out a six-stroke lead to Chris DiMarco in 2005, coming back from four shots down to Vijay Singh in 2002, passing DiMarco in 2001 after trailing by two strokes at the 36-hole mark.

Currently, Woods is two shots behind this time with a 6-under 138. Plus, Poulter and Westwood have never won a major championship.

Poulter is off to a good start with back-to-back 68′s.

Westwood had a wild ride on his way to a 69. He endured everything from an eagle to a double-bogey on his card, but he has a share of the lead.

Blue Jackets lose to familiar foes in Red Wings and Shootout

Columbus, Ohio–The Detroit Red Wings may not be having a dominating season like we’re used to seeing, but they know how to win a close game, win in overtime and like last night, win in the shootout.

Todd Bertuzzi scored on a backhand in the fourth round of the shootout to give Detroit, a 1-0 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday, giving the Red Wings at least 100 points for the 10th year in a row.

Jimmy Howard (nhl)

Everybody on the Red Wings are doing good but goaltender Jimmy Howard is the best. He stopped 22 shots while getting his third shutout of his young career. A top Calder Cup Trophy candidate as an NHL rookie of the year, Howard is getting his game into form at the right time.

Howard said that he is inspired by the play of last season’s Calder winner, Columbus’ Steve Mason who caught a season-best 45 saves. Howard improves to 36-15- 10 on the season.

With the win, Detroit improves to 6-9 in shootouts and Columbus falls to 2-10. Shootouts and Overtime have been the two areas that have kept the Blue Jackets from improving as a team.

In game two the young baseball season, fans at Huntington Park thought they would see a pitcher’s

duel  between two of the best IL pitchers from 2009, Hector Rondon of Columbus and Brad Lincoln of Indianapolis.

Did they see a pitcher’s duel ?

No, not hardly!

Friday night, Rondon and Lincoln combined to go 6.1 innings and allow 14 runs on 18 hits. When all was said and done, the Indians  outslugged Columbus 14-12 and both teams are 1-1 in the young season.

Shelley Duncan (MiLB)

During the game, there were two mega-prospects having an individual battle: Carlos Santana of Columbus and Pedro Alvarez of Indianapolis. The edge goes to Alvarez who went 2-5 with 2 home runs and 5 RBI’s compared to Santana who doubled and homered, driving in 3 runs in 5 at bats.

The Indians were held scoreless in the first inning, but scored in each of the next 6 innings including a 5-run 5th that gave them the lead for good. Josh Tomlin took the loss in his Triple-A debut, going 1.2 innings and allowing 5 runs on 4 hits and 3 walks. Shelley Duncan hit his first homer of the season in a losing effort.

Saturday evening at 7:05 the series continues with Jeanmar Gomez making his first Triple-A start for Columbus against Indians lefty Donnie Veal.

Clippers open season with 17 runs over shellshocked Indianapolis (Thursday)

The fans at Huntington Park in Columbus had an enjoyable opening night as the baseball season returned. How often does a fan see 17 runs in a game especially in the first game of the season when the pitching is usually ahead of the hitting.

The Clippers beat International League West rival Indianapolis Indians, 17-4.

Carlos Santana (MiLB)

Carlos Santana homered twice in his IL debut and Carlos Carrasco struck out eight batters in five and two-thirds innings, allowing three earned runs and earning the victory.

Indians starter Kevin Hart was ejected in the fourth inning for throwing a pitch behind Santana. Moments later, Santana took relief pitcher Jeremy Powell over the fence to tie the game at three. Wes Hodges then broke the tie with a home run in the next at bat and Columbus was on its way to a rout.

Chris Gimenez homered in his first at bat of the season for the Clippers. All nine starters for Columbus recorded at least one hit in the game. The home team scored in all five innings against the Indians bullpen. Highlighted by eight runs in the seventh.

Cleveland Indians 5 Chicago White Sox 3 in 11 (Thursday)

compiled by staff

The 2010 baseball season is only 3 games old, but Cleveland is very optimistic that they can have a decent season despite being counted out by the media and the fans.

Centerfielder Grady Sizemore is healthy again and Thursday, his three RBI’s helped the Indians beat Chicago in the Windy City, 5-3 in 11 innings.

Luis Valbuena opened the 11th with a bunt single off J.J.Putz (0-1). He went to second on Lou Marson’s sacrifice and, after Putz struck out Michael Brantley, Asdrubel Cabrera blooped a single into right field to put Cleveland ahead, 4-3. Sizemore followed with his second RBI double of the night to make it 5-3.

Jensen Lewis (1-0) worked 1 2/3 scoreless innings to earn the win.

The two pitching staffs combined for 28 strikeouts. Chicago’s Gavin Floyd had 7 of Chicago’s 16.
