Louis Oosthuizen was able to put together another solid round at St. Andrews despite bogeying the first hole in his third round. The South African, who has never been in contention in a major, shot a 3-under 69 to maintain his lead on the Old Course over Paul Casey. Casey, who is attempting to snap Britain's 11-year drought at the Open, was the best player on the course Saturday as he put together a total of five birdies on the front nine alone. Tiger Woods shot a 73 for the second consecutive day and remains out of contention going into the fourth and final round. Click here to view the complete British Open leaderboard.
The Red Sox appear to have their work cut out for them as they must win a game started by Cliff Lee (8-4, 2.64 ERA) in order to avoid dropping three straight to the Rangers. Darnell McDonald will hit second and play left field, while John Lackey (9-5, 4.78) takes the hill for the Sox.

Jeremy Kapstein, the Red Sox' senior adviser for baseball projects who is also running for lieutenant governor of Rhode Island, told WPRO-AM Friday that he has concerns over the possibility of the state loaning Curt Schilling's gaming company, 38 Studios, $75 million in an attempt to lure the business to Rhode Island and potentially provide up to 450 jobs by 2012.
"I have serious questions about the viablity of that kind of an offer to a company that is full of questions," Kapstein said, "and nothing against Curt Schilling and nothing against his representatives."
According to the Boston Herald, the interview followed a meeting of the Rhode Island economic development officials, who were discussing the potential move of 38 Studios from Maynard to the Ocean State.
Schilling started 38 Studios just more than four years ago while he was still...
For the second straight season reliever Fernando Cabrera will be designated for assignment by the Red Sox, this time the move comes after the right-handed pitcher allowed three runs on two hits in 1 1/3 innings. Cabrera, who was promoted from Triple A Pawtucket, allowed a fifth-inning grand slam to Texas' Bengie Molina, breaking open a 3-3 tie and leading the Rangers to an 8-4 win over the Red Sox. The 28-year-old Cabrera, who had pitched in six games with the Sox in 2009, cleared waivers after being designated last year, ultimately choosing to rejoin the Red Sox. Cabrera was 0-3 with 13 saves and a 3.50 ERA in 30 appearances for the Pawtucket Red Sox before being promoted.
The move will likely pave the way for the activation of reliever Manny Delcarmen, who was deemed ready to come off the 15-day disabled list earlier Friday by Red Sox manager Terry Francona. Francona said after the loss that could be multiple moves announced Saturday...
Bengie Molina became one of the most unlikely players in major league history to hit for the cycle on Friday night as the slow catcher connected for a grand slam and tripled in the eighth to cap off the feat in an 8-4 Rangers victory over the Red Sox Friday night at Fenway Park.
Molina became the first MLB catcher since 2004 to hit for the cycle and the first opponent in 32 years to do it at Fenway Park. Cleveland's Andre Thornton was the last to turn the trick on April 22, 1978.
Felix Doubront started and went 4 2/3 innings but couldn't get the final out of the fifth inning and gave way to Fernando Cabrera, who walked in the tying run in the fifth and then gave up the decisive grand slam to Molina. The game was delayed exactly one hour after the third inning by rain.
