Rosario leads Mets past Phillies in Little League Classic

Jason Vargas never talks to fans from the on-deck circle, just like major league teams never line up after a game and shake hands. Put a big league game in a tiny park full of 11 and 12 year olds, though, and those kinds of customs get tossed aside. Amed Rosario had three hits and drove in three runs, and the New York Mets went from cheering on players in the Little League World Series to impressing the youngsters in an 8-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday night. Jose Bautista got the scoring started for the New York

Blue Jays lose Stroman to 10-day DL with blister issues

The Toronto Blue Jays placed right-hander Marcus Stroman on the 10-day disabled list on Sunday with a blister on his right middle finger. Stroman last pitched for Toronto Friday night, allowing five runs over four innings in a 7-5 loss to the hometown New York Yankees. He is 4-8 with a 5.27 earned-run average through 18 starts with the Blue Jays this season. The move to the DL is retroactive to Saturday. Toronto recalled left-hander Thomas Pannone from triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding roster move. Stroman spent time on the DL earlier this season with a shoulder injury. He also

PGA Championship 2018: Rory McIlroy struggles to finish in top 50

And the world No.5 said he might now skip the first event of the FedEx playoffs to get his game ready for the Ryder Cup.

The Ulsterman found water three times on his front nine – and still managed to scramble a par on the par-five 8th. And when he chipped in for his third birdie on the 9th he had played the front nine in a ridiculous one-under par. He escaped again on 11 when he needed a penalty drop after driving wildly into a shrubbery but he still got up and down for par.

But his Major season appropriately finished with a bogey on the 18th for his second level-par score of 70 of the week.

McIlroy played in the final group on Sunday at the Masters and finished tied second at the Open but he has now gone four years since winning his last Major at the 2014 US PGA.

“I probably won’t remember anything from this season of Majors,” he said.

“I don’t think anything was anything particularly memorable about it. I had one good chance.

“I guess I had two but I didn’t really contend on the back nine at Augusta. I wanted to give myself chances and get in contention.”

Bellerive Country Club seemed like the perfect location to end his Major drought after heavy rain softened a course set up for good drivers of the ball. But McIlroy was let down by his wedge play to leave him considering missing the Northern Trust Open next week to work out the obvious flaws in his game.

“I am hoping to play in the Ryder Cup,” said the four-time Major winner. “The FedEx I am not so sure. I might take a couple of weeks off and reflect on what I am going to do. It might not be a bad thing to take off the first FedEx week and work on my game. We will see how I feel and see if I am ready to play five out of the six weeks leading up to the Ryder Cup.

Tommy Fleetwood got a free drop after driving into a spectator’s chair on the 11th before getting a free drop and making par on his way to a 68. “I nearly made a birdie there,” he laughed. After a week’s holiday in the Bahamas, the world No.11 plans to play all four FedEx events before his Rdyer Cup debut.

Thorbjorn Olesen has two more tournaments to prevent his fellow Dane Thomas Bjorn facing a “friendly decision” over a Ryder Cup wildcard

The in-form world No.40 missed a big chance to force his way into the eight automatic places after weekend rounds of 73 and 68 at the US PGA.

He will now tee up at this week’s Nordea Masters and the final qualifying event and the final qualifying event at Made in Denmark in a bid to guarantee his European debut next month.

Bjorn is a friend and mentor to the London-based Olesen. And the 28-year-old said: ““I have felt I have to qualify the whole time. We are very, very good friends and I don’t want it to come down to a friendly decision. I feel like I have done a lot over the last couple of months but I need to do a bit more over the next few weeks and hopefully I can go and win one of the next two.

“No matter what happens, Thomas is going to have very difficult decisions to make.”

Bjorn will announce his four wildcard picks on September 5.
