Tiger Woods Arrested On DUI In Florida

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) – Tiger Woods was arrested early Monday on a DUI charge in Jupiter, Florida, and spent nearly four hours in a county jail before he was released. Woods, the 14-time major champion who ranks second with his 79 career victories on the PGA Tour, has not played for four months. He is out for the rest of the season while he recovers from his fourth back surgery. Woods was arrested on suspicion of DUI about 3 a.m. Monday in a suburban area and taken to the Palm Beach County jail, Jupiter Police spokeswoman Kristin Rightler said. He was arrested on Military Trail, south of Indian Creek Parkway. Jail records show that Woods was booked into Palm Beach County jail at 7:18 a.m. and released on his own recognizance at 10:50 a.m. Rightler said she did not have additional details about the circumstances leading to Woods’ arrest, nor did she have any information about whether the arrest involved drugs or alcohol. She said an arrest report may be available Tuesday. His agent at Excel Sports, Mark Steinberg, did not immediately respond to a voicemail from The Associated Press. PGA Tour spokesman Ty Votaw said the tour would have no comment. Woods has not been seen at a golf tournament since he opened with a 77 at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, withdrawing the next day because of back spasms. He was in Los Angeles for the Genesis Open, run by his Tiger Woods Foundation, but did not come to the course because of his back. He was at the Masters, but only to attend the dinner for past champions. Woods, who had been No. 1 longer than any other golfer, has not been a factor since his last victory in August 2013 as he battled through back surgeries from a week before the 2014 Masters until his most recent operation to fuse disks in his lower back a month ago. In an update Friday on his website, Woods said the fusion surgery provided instant relief and that “I haven’t felt this good in years.” It was the first time Woods has run into trouble off the golf course since he plowed his SUV into a tree and a fire hydrant outside his Windermere, Florida, home in the early morning after Thanksgiving in 2009, which led to revelations that he had multiple extramarital affairs. A police report then showed that a Florida trooper who suspected Woods was driving under the influence sought a subpoena for the golfer’s blood test results from the hospital, but prosecutors rejected the petition for insufficient information. A witness, who wasn’t identified in the report, told the trooper he had been drinking alcohol earlier. The same witness also said Woods had been prescribed two drugs, the sleep aid Ambien and the painkiller Vicodin. The report did not say who the witness was but added it was the same person who pulled Woods from the vehicle after the accident. Woods’ wife has told police that she used a golf club to smash the back windows of the Cadillac Escalade to help her husband out. He eventually was cited for careless driving and fined $164. Woods and wife Elin Nordegren divorced in August 2010. He later had a relationship with Olympic ski champion Lindsey Vonn from 2013 that lasted two years. (© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press.

Trout Sprains Thumb In Angels’ 9-2 Loss At Miami

MIAMI (AP) — Mike Trout stood at his locker and frowned as he looked down at his left thumb, which was puffy and red and sending a clear signal. He’s out. Trout sprained his thumb stealing second base and left Sunday’s game in the sixth inning , and for the Los Angeles Angels, their 9-2 loss at Miami became a secondary concern. X-rays were negative, and Trout is scheduled to undergo an MRI Monday when the team returns to Los Angeles. “A scary thing,” Trout said. “Hopefully it’s just sore and just jammed, a bad jam. I’m obviously bummed out, but Monday if it feels a little better, we’ll see how it goes.” The Angels hope Trout can avoid the disabled list, manager Mike Scioscia said, although he stressed the need for further evaluation. “The first indication is it just looks like a little sprain,” Scioscia said. Trout yelled in pain as he rose after he jammed his thumb into second base sliding headfirst in the fifth inning. He was examined by a trainer and stayed in the game, but was replaced in the sixth when the thumb became stiff. “It was definitely sore for sure,” Trout said. “It was aching.” The reigning American League MVP was 0 for 2 when he departed with the Angels trailing 4-2. He finished 2 for 9 in the series to drop his average to .337, although he hit his 16th homer Saturday to take the major league lead. The Angels (26-27) went 4-6 on their trip to fall below .500. They lost two of three to the Marlins (18-30), who won a series for the first time since April 23. “It seems like a long time,” Miami manager Don Mattingly said. “We haven’t even had many chances.” Jose Urena (3-2) won despite a career-high six walks in five innings. He allowed two runs but had seven strikeouts, also a career high. Los Angeles totaled four hits, left the bases loaded in the third and fourth innings, and went 1 for 8 with runners in scoring position. “It seems like this whole trip our starters have been pitching with their backs against the wall, because we haven’t really swung the bats the way we need to,” Scioscia said. The Angels were shut out over the final five innings by five pitchers, while their bullpen gave up five runs in 3 1/3 innings. Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton had three hits, including his 13th home run . Teammate J.T. Riddle hit his third homer and drove in three runs. The Angels’ Martin Maldonado hit a two-run homer, his fourth. Matt Shoemaker (4-3) allowed four runs in 4 2/3 innings, and the Marlins rallied from a 2-1 deficit with three runs against him in the fifth. Pinch hitter Ichiro Suzuki, batting .148, tied the game with an RBI single, and Riddle hit a two-run homer on the next pitch. Riddle, a light-hitting shortstop in the minors before he was called up due to a wave of infield injuries, is batting .258 and has 13 RBIs in 25 games. MARLIN BEATS TROUT Trout struck out in the first inning and grounded out with the bases loaded to end the third against Urena. “He is a top hitter. He’s a great ballplayer,” Urena said. “But when you have the ball, you can decide a lot of things.” STANTON SURGE Stanton is 12 for 24 (.500) since Mattingly moved the slugger into the No. 2 spot in the order. “Maybe it’s a little different feel,” Mattingly said. “He has been swinging the bat good, and we’ve been scoring pretty good from there. I kind of like what it does to our middle guys.” TRAINER’S ROOM Angels: Albert Pujols, who has been nursing a sore right hamstring, didn’t play. He remains at 597 home runs. UP NEXT Angels: RHP Ricky Nolasco (2-4, 4.37 ERA) pitches against Atlanta for the 25th time when the Angels begin a homestand Monday and face RHP Julio Teheran (3-4, 4.88 ERA). Nolasco is 6-10 with a 5.11 ERA versus the Braves. Marlins: RHP Edinson Volquez (0-7, 4.82 ERA), who leads the majors in losses, is scheduled to start Monday against Philadelphia and RHP Jeremy Hellickson (5-2, 4.28 ERA). Read More »

Good News Cubs Fans: You Finally Scored! Bad News: Dodgers Score More

LOS ANGELES (AP)   —  Cody Bellinger and Kike Hernandez led an offensive outburst with three-run homers that upstaged the anticipated duel between aces Jon Lester and Clayton Kershaw, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Chicago 9-4 on Sunday to sweep the Cubs in three games at home for the first time since August 2012. Lester and Kershaw were rocked for 10 runs and 18 hits in a combined 7 2/3 innings of their first career matchup. The left-handers that own three World Series titles (Lester), three Cy Young Awards (Kershaw) and 10 All-Star nods failed to retire the side in order in any inning. Lester (3-3) gave up six runs and seven hits in 3 1/3 innings for Chicago. He struck out six and walked two. Kershaw allowed four runs and a career-high-tying 11 hits in 4 1/3 innings. The Cubs stranded 10 runners against him. Josh Fields (2-0) got the victory, striking out two in 1 2/3 innings. The game’s 13 runs came on seven homers. Bellinger put the Dodgers ahead 3-1 with a drive into the right-field pavilion in the second. It was Lester’s first homer allowed with runners on this season. Hernandez connected in the third, extending the lead to 6-1. Chicago pulled within two with three runs in the fourth. Javier Baez hit a solo shot and Anthony Rizzo belted a two-run homer. The Cubs jumped on Kershaw from the start. Baez and Kris Bryant singled on first pitches from him to open the game. Addison Russell singled off the first pitch leading off the fifth. Chicago led 1-0 when Willson Contreras homered leading off the second, snapping 30 consecutive road innings without a run scored. It came on the 12th pitch of the at-bat after Contreras fouled off five straight pitches from Kershaw. Austin Barnes homered off Chicago’s Mike Montgomery in the fifth. Pinch hitter Yasiel Puig added a two-run shot in the seventh off Pedro Strop. After Lester and Kershaw were chased, the Dodgers’ NL-leading bullpen came in and pitched 4 2/3 innings of hitless relief. The pen hasn’t given up a run in four straight games. The Dodgers have won nine of 11 overall and 11 of 13 at home. The Cubs were outscored 18-4 in the series, losing the first two games by scores of 4-0 and 5-0. TRAINER’S ROOM Cubs: INF Ben Zobrist sat out a second straight game with a sore left wrist, but is expected to return to the lineup Monday. Dodgers: CF Joc Pederson is still in concussion protocol. He will make the trip to St. Louis, but he isn’t expected to be activated. He stayed in the clubhouse Sunday instead of the dugout to avoid sensory overload. … LHP Brandon McCarthy had an MRI that showed patella tendinitis in his right knee, which won’t keep him out of the rotation. UP NEXT Cubs: RHP Kyle Hendricks (4-2, 3.25 ERA) starts the series opener in San Diego on Monday. He is unbeaten in five previous outings against the Padres with a 3-0 record and a 1.56 ERA. He tossed a five-hit shutout at Petco Park in May 2015. Dodgers: LHP Rich Hill (1-2, 4.76 ERA) starts the opener of a four-game series in St. Louis on Monday. In his previous start, he lost to the Cardinals 6-1 on Wednesday, allowing five runs and four hits in four innings while striking out four and walking a career-worst seven on 82 pitches.

Dodgers Blank Ice Cold Cubs Offense, 5-0

LOS ANGELES ( —   Chase Utley drove in three runs with a pair of two-out singles, and Brandon McCarthy and Ross Stripling combined on a three-hitter that led the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Chicago Cubs 5-0 Saturday for their eighth win in 10 games. Chicago has been shut out in three consecutive road games and held scoreless in four of its last six games away from Wrigley Field, scoring five runs in that span. The Cubs have not scored in 29 consecutive road innings, including a 3-0 defeat to St. Louis on May 14, and a 4-0 loss to the Dodgers on Friday night. McCarthy (5-1) allowed two-out singles to Ian Happ in the fourth and Addison Russell in the fifth. He struck out six and walked one, winning his second straight start and lowering his ERA to 3.28. Stripling gave up Miguel Montero’s leadoff single in the eighth and finished for his second professional save, his first since 2013 with Double-A Chattanooga. Chris Taylor hit a two-run homer in a four-run fifth inning as the Dodgers won their third in a row. John Lackey (4-5) gave up five runs, six hits and four walks in six innings. Utley’s single in the fourth put Los Angeles ahead. REPLAY REBUKE Happ appeared to stretch a single into a double in the fourth, beating Corey Seager’s tag, but a video review ruled he came off the base from the momentum of his hard slide. MILITARY TRIBUTE As part of a league-wide tribute to the nation’s military, the Cubs and Dodgers wore olive green hats and uniforms accented with olive-green lettering. TRAINER’S ROOM Cubs: Ben Zobrist was scratched from the Cubs’ lineup with a sore left wrist, giving Happ his first start at second base since his debut May 13. Manager Joe Maddon, who had Zobrist in his original starting lineup, preferred to keep his utilityman as a possible pinch hitter or late replacement. Dodgers: 3B Justin Turner (strained right hamstring) is eligible to come off the DL Monday but will need more time. He is expected to make at least one minor league rehab start and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Turner might return toward the end of a road trip that finishes June 4 in Milwaukee. UP NEXT Clayton Kershaw (7-2) starts for the Dodgers on Sunday in a marquee matchup that features Jon Lester (3-2) for the Cubs. Lester is coming off a four-hitter in a win over San Francisco in which he struck out 10. Lester has a 0.86 ERA in his last three regular-season starts against the Dodgers. Kershaw matched a season high with 10 strikeouts and walked none in his last start, against St. Louis. He has held the Cubs to a .218 batting average in eight starts against the Cubs, striking out 68 in 53 2/3 innings. (@Copyright 2017. The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.
