Beltre: 'I wasn't coming out of that game'

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Red Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre was back in the lineup Sunday after apparently tweaking his left hamstring while running down to first base in the eighth inning of the Sox’ 3-2 loss to the Rays Saturday night. Even though he appeared hobbled for the last few innings, Beltre explained Sunday that exiting was not an option.

 

“I wasn’t coming out of that game,” he said prior to the Sox’ series finale meeting with the Rays. “I’m stubborn and I know sometimes I can go overboard, but unless [my hamstring] blows up I’m going to play.

 

“We know how important these games are for us and for me to be sitting on the bench when there’s a slight chance I can play, it’s hard for me to sit and that’s why I’m not doing it. We already have enough guys missing, so I don’t think we need to add anybody to that list. I’m...

Japan defeats Hawaii for LLWS title

Konan Tomori had a homer and three RBIs and Ryusuke Ikeda struck out out five and allowed just four singles over three innings to lift Japan to a 4-1 win over Waipahu, Hawaii in Sunday's finale of the Little League World Series. Hawaii, which had scored 29 runs over its previous three games, managed just four hits in the loss, which ended the run of five straight World Series titles for the United States.

Tiger qualifies for Deutsche Bank

With Sunday's final-round 67 at The Barclays, Tiger Woods has qualified for this week's Deutsche Bank Championship, which starts Friday at TPC Boston. Woods needed to finish with a high enough round to jump from 112th in the world into the top 100 to qualify for the tournament, and his final round score should be enough to make it possible. (He finished The Barclays with a 7-under 277.) Woods has won the Deutsche Bank Championship once and finished second twice.
