  • Cabrera, Price lead Tigers’ rout
    David Price would like to forget everything about Aug. 27, maybe the ugliest game of his career. He erased some it from his memory.
  • Brewers’ Central lead eclipsed by Soler, Cubs
    Jorge Soler has never lacked confidence. Even before being promoted to the major leagues last week, the Cuban slugger declared this season to be “his time.” But his blistering start with the Chicago Cubs has caught even him off-guard.
  • Kirk wins Deutsche Bank by 2
    Chris Kirk made three big putts and captured the biggest win of his career Monday in the Deutsche Bank Championship. Whether that was enough for U.S. captain Tom Watson to add him to the Ryder Cup team was the least of his concerns.

Charlie Hustle back at helm

– Pete Rose’s jersey was too big, and he was wearing dress pants as he exchanged lineup cards at home plate.

But he was back in his element Monday, managing a baseball team, if just for one day. The 73-year-old, whose 4,256 hits are the most in major league history, served as guest skipper for the Bluefish of the independent Atlantic League during their 2-0 win over the Lancaster (Pennsylvania) Barnstormers.

Rose was managing the Cincinnati Reds in 1989 when he agreed to a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball for betting on baseball. He later admitted he bet on Reds games while running the team.
