Yankees outlast Rangers
Yankees’ bullpen blew a strong spot start by Scott Proctor, lifting New York over Texas.
Proctor, making his first big league start in place of Randy Johnson, held Texas to three hits — two on solo homers

Six tied for first-round lead
It was the largest logjam in the first round of a major since a six-way tie at tile 1989 British Open.
Retief Goosen birdied his last two holes for a 68, while Vijay Singh did the same to salvage a 70.
On a steamy day in the 90s that required maintenance crews to douse the greens with water, 27 players managed to break par on the 7,392-yard Lower Course at Baltusrol.
Woods was not among them. Not even close.
I Ie three-putted his first hole for bogey, then dropped shots on three of the easiest holes on the course. His 75 was not his worst score in a major in the opening round, but his position — a tie for 113th — was his worst since a tie for 104th in last year's PCA Championship.
He dropped his putter in disgust and flung an iron after his approach spun off the green, yet Woods said his patience kept it from being worse.
to David Dellucci — before leaving with a 6-2 lead after five-plus innings.
But the Yankees weak mid-dle-inning relievers let the Rangers back in the game. Trailing 8-4 in the seventh, Texas scored four runs off Felix Rodriguez, and Tanyon Sturtze (4-1), who gave up a tying three-mn home run to Michael Young.
After Jeter homered off James Baldwin (0-2) in the bottom half, the Rangers
“I’m still in it,” he said. “There won t be too many guys under par by the end of the week. I lopefidly, I can get myself there over the next three days.”
That’s assuming he gets three more days.
Mickelson hasn’t been this excited since he showed up at Augusta National having won his third PCA Tour title of the young season. But he finished 10th in the Masters, where the only noise he made was an argument with Singh over spike marks, and hasn’t been the same.
I Ie took himself out of contention at the U.S. Open with a 77 in the second round and tied for 33rd. He broke par only once at St. Andrews and tied for 61st. Some began to wonder if that breakthrough major won last year at the Masters might have been an aberration.
“I have a little bit different feeling heading into this tournament than I’ve had in some of the others," Mickelson said. "I feel a lot more confident in my game than I did heading into the other majors. And as I said earlier in the week, I really want to put everything I have into finishing off the year right.”
loaded the bases in the eighth against Tom Gordon with two outs on a hit and two walks.
Mariano Rivera relieved and got Dellucci to hit a popup on a 3-2 pitch to end the threat. Rivera then got three outs for his 31st consecutive save.
The Yankees closed within five games of the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox. Texas matched a season-high with its fifth straight road loss.
Woods found no such enthusiasm.
Trying to become the first player since Jack Nicklaus in 1975 to start and finish the year by winning majors, there were early signs of a struggle. Woods had a stem look on his face, a three-putt bogey on his opening hole, and tee shots that rarely found the short grass.
“When I did hit it well off the tee, I didn’t hit my irons close,” he said. “And then when I did hit it close, I didn’t make a putt. Every hole, you could say theres something that I did wrong. And that was frustrating.”
Nothing bugged him like the 554-yard 18th, the easiest scoring hole on the Lower Course.
A tee shot in the fairway would have left him a long iron to the green, but this drive sailed so far to die left that it clipped a tree and landed just inside a hazard line.
His ball was plugged so badly that Wtxxls and caddie Steve Williams assumed someone had stepped on it during a brief search. No one could confinn that, so Woods wound up taking a drop where it entered the hazard, played back to the fairway and took bogey.
