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.

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.
