Murphy Shoots Another 69 at Cleveland Open




WESTLAKE, Ohio -- St. Johnsbury's Trevor Murphy shot a 2-under 69 for the second consecutive round to play his way into a four-way tie for 20th place at the Web.com Tour's Cleveland Open at the par-71 Lakewood Country Club.

It leaves him five strokes off the pace going into today's third round. Matthew Goggin shot a 62 on Friday leaving him with a tournament-best 133.

ST. JUDE CLASSIC: In Memphis, Tennessee, Ben Crane shot a 5-under 65 on Friday to open a six-stroke lead in the St. Jude Classic before heavy rain delayed play twice and forced the suspension of play for the day.

Crane birdied his final hole Thursday night for a 63 and rolled in a 44-footer for birdie to start the second round Friday morning. He had a 12-under 128 total at TPC Southwind, matching the winning score in relation to par last year.

Carl Pettersen and Jason Bohn were tied for second. Pettersen had one hole left, and Bohn had two to play. Davis Love III (70) and Billy Horschel (68) were in at 5 under.

Phil Mickelson and Retief Goosen were unable to start the second round. Mickelson opened with a 67 on Thursday, and Goosen had a 66.

After a 59-minute delay because of lightning, play resumed for 13 minutes before being stopped again. Fans were sent home and the round was suspended just before 5 p.m.

Sox Lose 4th in a Row, 6-2

DETROIT -- Ian Kinsler and Torii Hunter hit back-to-back homers in the fifth inning and Victor Martinez cleared the fences in the eighth, helping the Detroit Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 6-2 and end a season-high five-game losing streak.

Drew Smyly (3-4) allowed two runs on five hits over six innings. He struck out four and walked only one.

Ian Krol and Joba Chamberlain each threw an inning of scoreless relief and Joe Nathan pitched the ninth in a non-save situation with a four-run lead.

Rubby De La Rosa (1-1) gave up four runs, nine hits and two walks. He had five strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings.

Boston has lost four straight after winning seven in a row.

Detroit had lost 13 of 17 games, including the previous four, since sweeping the Red Sox on the road a few weeks ago.

Smyly snapped a skid of his own. He was 0-2 in his last two starts, giving up a total of nine runs over nine innings, and was 0-3 in his previous six outings.

Brock Holt led off the game with a single off Smyly and Xander Bogaerts followed with double that nearly cleared the left-center field wall to make it 1-0.

Detroit shortstop Andrew Romine tied the game with an RBI double in the third.

TENNIS

Nadal, Djokovic To Meet in French Open Final

PARIS -- Rafael Nadal is going for No. 9 at the French Open, and the only man that can stop him is Novak Djokovic.

Nadal is already a record eight-time champion with a lifetime 65-1 record at Roland Garros. One more victory on the red clay will make him the first man to win five in a row and give him his 14th Grand Slam title -- tied in second place with Pete Sampras.

The top-seeded Spaniard reached the final by beating Wimbledon champion Andy Murray 6-3, 6-2, 6-1 Friday on Court Philippe Chatrier, the stadium Nadal calls his favorite place to play. Djokovic defeated Ernests Gulbis 6-3, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 in the first semifinal.

Nadal has beaten Djokovic at the French Open in all five of their meetings, starting with a quarterfinal victory in 2006. They also met in the semifinals in 2007, '08 and '13, and in the final in 2012.

The second-seeded Djokovic, however, has beaten Nadal the last four times they have played, including on clay in the final in Rome last month.

The winner on Sunday will also be ranked No. 1 on Monday. Nadal is currently at the top, but needs to extend his French Open winning streak to 35 matches to stay there.

He certainly played like the No. 1 on Friday.
