The Cubs placed left-hander Mark Guthrie on the 15-day disabled list with tendinitis in his left elbow. The move was made retroactive to Tuesday. Guthrie is 0-2 with a 3.55 ERA in 12 2-3 innings. He has been unavailable since Thursday, when the Cubs beat Milwaukee in 17 innings.
Expos pitcher Zach Day was ejected in the third inning against the Rockies after the umpiring crew determined he had an illegal substance on his fingers. Day was tossed after the umpires learned he put glue on his right middle finger to cover up a blister. Under rule 8.02 (b), a pitcher is automatically ejected if he is found with any foreign substance on his fingers.
Vijay Singh made a clutch par save on the 17th hole, maintaining his lead in the Byron Nelson Championship. After a pair of 65s, Singh shot a 1-under 69 Saturday, able to stay under par even after he flew the green on the 196-yard 17th hole and his ball buried in some nasty rough. He managed to pitch to 7 feet, saved par and preserved his slim lead.
Tiger Woods shot a 2-under 70 to remain nine strokes behind leader Padraig Harrington after the third round of the Deutsche Bank-SAP Open. Woods never has rallied from nine strokes back on the final day, and acknowledged that he didn't have much of a chance to win the tournament for the third straight time.
