Early starters impress on day three of the Open

As impressive as the Friday start was, however, a bigger boost might have come from what McIlroy did once he made the turn. Everything was strong. I give it a nine across the board for everything - tee balls, ball-striking, short game and putting.

Cardinals 9 Run Inning Sinks Cubs, 11-4

As you might expect, it was a close affair between the two rivals most of the day. Unfortunately, the team was taken down by the visiting St. Louis Cardinals 11-4 to halt that win streak. Arrieta served up a solo homer in the second inning to Randal Grichuk and back-to-back doubles in the third, but the Cards didn't do anything else off of him.

Spieth takes two-shot lead into weekend of the Open Championship

But one thing the U.S. Open champion acknowledged was his golf clubs did not travel to Sin City in the aftermath of his triumph last month at Erin Hills. And it just doesn't seem like I'm fully ready to play. Some are on the short list of favorites and a couple of minor sleepers to watch. Open champion in 2014 at Hoylake and a four-time major victor, McIlroy admitted it took some strong words from his caddy JP Fitzgerald to help him recover.

Jordan Spieth (65) an early British Open co-leader

As Spieth and Koepka went out, the wind had died down but torrential rain moving in from the Irish Sea created its own problems and waterlogged greens forced a brief halt to play around 5:30pm (1630 GMT). The Merseyside golf fans did their best to try and inspire the star who learned the game playing just a few miles down the road at Southport and Ainsdale.

Barguil takes stage as Froome holds lead

With the team's sprint king Mark Cavendish crashing out early in the Tour, it looked as though Dimension Data would not have the stage win that does so much for the Qhubeka charity which it promotes and supports. Boasson Hagen was among nine riders who ditched the others with a furious burst, leaving him in the right group to contest the stage victory. While seven of them veered left, the long way round, Boasson Hagen and Sunweb's German rider Nikias Arndt swerved to the right - instantly ...

Koby Altman to be Cleveland Cavaliers' new GM

Altman was Cavs' assistant GM. Altman originally joined the Cavaliers as pro personnel manager in 2012 and the Cavs promoted him to director of pro player personnel in September 2013. Then in 2014, Griffin took over after Grant was sacked. Cleveland may also add Derrick Rose for the league minimum, especially now that the Cavs may have an opening at point guard with Irving's demand to be traded.

Kyrie Irving wants to be traded to the Spurs

It was also just a year after his team won a championship against a 73-win Warriors squad. The Cavs of course already have a three-time MVP in LeBron James .

Cleveland recorded losing records in his first three seasons before James returned.

Taijuan Walker (6-4, 3.61) gets the ball for the Diamondbacks against Reds rookie Luis Castillo (1-2, 3.41). Cubs starter Jake Arrieta went six innings, giving up two runs and five hits, while Ben Zobrist had three hits and Wilson Contreras homered for Chicago .

Chris Sale Reaches 200 Strikeouts in Record Time

And with 200 K's in 20 or fewer starts, Sale joins some pretty elite company. But Sale's dominance is even more historic. Sale improved to 6-0 against the Angels with a 1.23 ERA in seven starts (nine games). "Then he makes another and then that's the best one. It seems like he's always raising the bar". Sale has won 11 of his last 13 decisions. However, the historical context of his season does not matter that much to Sale at this point.

Derrick Rose, Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly discussing one-year deal

That's why Cleveland is firmly in control of this situation.

The app, named Hater , matches people based on what they don't like . While we find these dislikes pretty hilarious, we can't but argue that some of this information is, er, a little too specific.

The Open: Rory McIlroy's first-round fightback inspired by caddie

Koepka was playing for the first time since winning the U.S. Open last month. After a two-putt birdie on the par-5 17th, McIlroy holed a 30-footer for birdie on the final hole, one that was punctuated by an enthusiastic fist pump.

Spieth, one of three joint leaders overnight on five-under, had dropped back to -4 at the turn on a wet and miserable afternoon at Royal Birkdale .

A glance at the second round of the British Open

For McIlroy, it could have been far worse as his all-round game deserted him from the off, and he did well to limit the damage to a bogey at the opening hole before he dropped four strokes in a row from the third. And with the forecast predicting deteriorating conditions for Friday's second round, Spieth knows how valuable his great start could turn out to be.
