Friday was full of action from The Memorial Tournament held in Columbus, Ohio. After two rounds, Kyle Stanley and Joaquin Niemann lead the tournament at (-11), with many players chasing at (-9) and (-8). Tiger Woods had one of his best days striking the ball since he has returned, but missed a few key putts. Tiger was quoted as saying “”I did not putt well today. It could have easily been a nice, little 62 or 63. I turned it into a 67.” Woods missed three putts inside of 6 feet, two for birdie and one for par. He still shot a great round of 67, and got the crowd into a frenzy.

Tiger is 6 shots back of the lead going in to Saturday’s “Moving Day”. He looks to set himself up in position for a chance to make a run at this thing on Sunday. It wasn’t just Tiger who was hitting great shots though, check out the highlights from the whole day, and enjoy.

The Cincinnati Reds are in the win column again after a 7-2 win over the San Diego Padres. Jose Peraza went 3-4 at the plate including 3 RBI. Tyler Mahle got the win with 5 innings pitched, 0 earned runs and 5 strikeouts. The Reds have improved to 21-37 on the season.

The Cleveland Indians had their 6 game win streak come to an end yesterday in a 7-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins. Carlos Carrasco gets the loss after allowing 6 earned runs in just 3.2 innings. Edwin Encarnacion was 2-4 for the Tribe with 2 RBI and a run scored. The Indians are now 30-26 on the season.

The Top Play of the Day comes from the Big Cat, Tiger Woods with his Eagle on the Par 5, 11th hole on Friday.

In today’s action, Game Three of the Stanley Cup Finals is played in Washington with the Capitals hosting the Vegas Golden Knights. It’s a pivotal Game Three, as the series is currently tied 1-1. The Indians look to get back on track with the Twins, as the Reds continue their series with the Padres.
