Tanaka fans 10 in Yankees win over Cubs
News ImageJapanese pitching ace Masahiro Tanaka delivered a dazzling 10 strikeouts and allowed just two bunt singles Wednesday in the New York Yankees' 3-0 win over the Chicago Cubs.

He lowered his earned-run-average from 3.21 to 2.05, drawing praise from Yankees manager Joe Girardi for his smooth transition to America's major leagues. Tanaka had retired 15 straight Cubs batters before Anthony Rizzo's bunt single against the infield shift to begin the seventh inning.

Players Championship adopts three-hole playoff
News ImagePonte Vedra Beach (United States) (AFP) - The Players Championship is abandoning its sudden-death playoff and switching to a three-hole aggregate playoff in a move that further separates the elite event from other US PGA Tour stops. The plan will go into effect for this year's tournament at TPC Sawgrass in May. Should the final round come down to a playoff, it will take place at holes 16, 17 and 18. "Holes 16, 17 and 18 of The Players Stadium Course are perhaps the most dramatic closing holes in professional golf from a risk-reward standpoint, as they test all facets of a player's physical and mental game while under the pressure of trying to win such a significant championship," PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said in a statement on Wednesday. "Given the fact that winning The Players means you have defeated the strongest field in golf, we felt an aggregate playoff that incorporated these three holes was a more appropriate way to determine the champion."

Milwaukee Bucks sold for $550 million
News ImageMilwaukee Bucks owner Herb Kohl said Wednesday he's selling the NBA team to an ownership group eager to keep the club in Milwaukee. Kohl, a former US Senator, said he had agreed to sell the club to hedge-fund billionaires Wesley Edens and Marc Lasry. The Bucks have struggled on the court this season, and will finish the 2013-14 campaign on Wednesday with the worst record in the league. But at least their new owners won't be taking them to a more lucrative market, since Kohl was insistent that he wanted them to stay in Milwaukee.
