NORTON, Mass. (AP) — Ryan Palmer would not have guessed this would be his lowest round of the year, at least not the way it started.

He pulled his tee shot left into a hazard. After a penalty drop, he went just over the green some 40 feet from the flag, and still had 4 feet left just to make bogey. But he made the putt — and then he made a bunch more.

When his round ended with an 18-foot birdie putt, Palmer had taken only 21 putts and had an 8-under...

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Yasmani Grandal singled in the winning run with two outs in the 12th inning and the San Diego Padres beat the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 Friday night.

Earlier in the inning, the Dodgers used a five-man infield, including a four-man shift against left-handed hitting Seth Smith, all stationed between first and second.

With runners on second and third and a 1-1 count to Abraham Almonte, the Dodgers brought in center fielder...

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Anu Solomon threw for 425 yards and four touchdowns in his first career start, and Arizona broke a 45-year-old school record with 787 total yards in a season-opening 58-13 rout over Nevada-Las Vegas Friday night.

Solomon shook off some early-game jitters with a series of big plays to break the school freshman record for passing yards, highlighted by a 92-yard touchdown pass to Austin Hill on the first play of the second half.

Instead, they called it a night after Posey went 5 for 5 and drove in three runs in just six innings, leading the San Francisco Giants to a 13-2 rout of the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night for their fourth straight win.

"It would have been nice for him to go for six, but the rest was more important," Bochy said....
