                    === Hawks' Korver out for postseason ===
 
 Atlanta,  GA  (SportsNetwork.com) -  If the Atlanta Hawks are going to erase a
 2-0  deficit  in their Eastern  Conference Finals series against the Cleveland
 Cavaliers, they will have to do it without one of the NBA's best shooters.
 
 An  MRI  Saturday morning  revealed that  Kyle Korver  sustained a severe high
 right ankle sprain in Game 2 and will not be available again this season.
 
 Late  in  the third  quarter of  Friday's 94-82 loss  to Cleveland, Cavs guard
 Matthew Dellavedova rolled over on Korver's ankle as they were competing for a
 loose  ball.  Korver went to  the locker room to  have x-rays, which turned up
 negative for a broken ankle.
 
 Korver reached his first career All-Star Game this season, his second with the
 Hawks. He averaged 12.1 points per game and led the league in 3-point shooting
 for  the second  straight season at 49.2 percent. He was averaging 11.1 points
 on 35.5 percent 3-point shooting in the playoffs.
 
 Korver  is  the second Hawks  starter to battle  an injury during this series.
 Forward  DeMarre Carroll  was a game-time decision  in Game 2 with a left knee
 sprain. Carroll would ultimately play, scoring six points in 34 minutes.
 
 The series resumes Sunday in Cleveland.
 
 
                 === Raptors' Ross undergoes ankle surgery ===
 
 Toronto,  ON (SportsNetwork.com) - The Toronto Raptors announced that forward-
 guard Terrence Ross underwent surgery on Friday to remove bone spurs and loose
 bodies from his left ankle.
 
 No timetable has been set for his return.
 
 Ross,  24,  played in all  82 regular season games  and all four playoff games
 despite  the  injury. In  the regular  season, he averaged  9.8 points and 2.8
 rebounds per game on 41 percent shooting. He averaged just 7.0 points per game
 in  Toronto's  Eastern Conference  quarterfinal  sweep  at  the hands  of  the
 Wizards.
 
 
                   === Mets 3B Wright has spinal stenosis ===
 
 Pittsburgh,  PA (SportsNetwork.com) - New York Mets third baseman David Wright
 has been diagnosed with spinal stenosis and will be out at least another week.
 
 The Mets do not believe Wright's condition is degenerative, although assistant
 general manager John Ricco said Saturday it has lasted longer than expected.
 
 "The  doctors aren't that worried about it," Ricco said, according to MLB.com.
 "It's just something that seems to be taking longer than we initially thought.
 The way it was progressing, they thought it would be gone by now."
 
 Spinal  stenosis is a  narrowing of the spine that puts pressure on the spinal
 cord and nerves, causing pain. It is most common in men and women over 50.
 
 Wright,  32, has been out since being placed on the 15-day disabled list April
 15  with a  strained right hamstring. The  Mets announced on May 8 that he was
 also experiencing back pain.
 
 He was batting .333 when he went on the DL after only eight games.
 
 
                          === A's put Crisp on DL ===
 
 St.  Petersburg,  FL (SportsNetwork.com)  - The  Oakland Athletics have placed
 outfielder Coco Crisp on the 15-day disabled list with a cervical strain.
 
 To  take his spot on the roster, the A's recalled right-handed pitcher Kendall
 Graveman  from  Triple-A Nashville. Graveman  is scheduled to start Saturday's
 game against the Tampa Bay Rays.
 
 Crisp,  who  has not  played since May  19, will not  have surgery because the
 operation  could potentially end his career. He also missed time with the neck
 injury in 2014 but did not go on the disabled list.
 
 The  35-year-old Crisp was batting just .044 (2-for-45) in 13 games this year.
 He began the season on the disabled list after undergoing surgery on his right
 elbow and was reinstated May 6.
 
 Graveman  joins the  A's for the second  time this year. He was on the Opening
 Day roster and went 1-2 with an 8.27 ERA in four starts before he was optioned
 to Nashville April 26.
 
 
                 === Reds scratch Cueto from Sunday's start ===
 
 Cleveland,  OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Cincinnati Reds ace Johnny Cueto will not
 make  his scheduled start Sunday against the Cleveland Indians due to what the
 team termed "general stiffness."
 
 Raisel Iglesias will instead draw the assignment in the series finale.
 
 Cueto  last  pitched Tuesday at Kansas  City, allowing three runs and a season
 high-tying  nine hits  over seven  innings  in the  Reds' 3-0  loss. The  2014
 All-Star  threw 114  and 123 pitches, respectively, in his two previous starts
 prior to recording 102 in Tuesday's outing.
 
 The  impending free  agent right-hander has a solid 3.03 earned run average in
 nine  starts this season, but has posted a 4.21 ERA along with a 2-3 record in
 May.
 
 Iglesias  has made  two starts earlier this season, including a stellar eight-
 inning  performance against Atlanta on May 13. The rookie yielded a run on two
 hits to earn his first major league win.
 
 
              === Reds manager Price ejected before 1st pitch ===
 
 Cleveland,  OH  (SportsNetwork.com) - Cincinnati  Reds manager Bryan Price was
 ejected before the first pitch of Saturday's game against Cleveland.
 
 Price  was  tossed by second  base umpire Jim Reynolds  as the two argued near
 home plate after the teams exchanged lineup cards.
 
 It was Price's second ejection of the season.
 
 The  Reds dropped the  opener of the three-game series 7-3 on Friday night for
 their sixth consecutive loss.
 
 
              === Orioles' Matusz ejected for substance on arm ===
 
 Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Baltimore Orioles reliever Brian Matusz became
 the  second major  league pitcher in three  days to be ejected from a game for
 having a foreign substance on his arm.
 
 Matusz  was ejected  after retiring the first two Miami Marlins batters in the
 bottom of the 12th inning Saturday night.
 
 Just  like  Will Smith, the Milwaukee  Brewers reliever who was ejected from a
 game  in Atlanta on Thursday night, umpires discovered a substance on Matusz's
 right forearm.
 
 Smith, who admitted he had rosin and sunscreen on his arm and had forgotten to
 wipe it off, was suspended for eight games by Major League Baseball.
 
 It's  common for pitchers to use a combination of rosin and sunscreen to get a
 better grip on the ball, but the practice is banned by MLB.
 
 
            === Dodgers place C Grandal on 7-day concussion list ===
 
 Los  Angeles, CA  (SportsNetwork.com) - The Los Angeles Dodgers placed catcher
 Yasmani  Grandal on the seven-day concussion disabled list Saturday and called
 up catcher Austin Barnes from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
 
 Grandal  left Friday  night's game against San Diego in the fifth inning after
 taking a couple of shots to the head, one on a backswing and one on a foul tip
 that struck his mask.
 
 He is batting .291 this season, including .400 in 16 games this month.
 
 Barnes,  25,  is making his first  appearance on an active major league roster
 after hitting .290 in 29 games for Oklahoma City this season.
 
 
              === Bellucci defeats Sousa in Geneva Open final ===
 
 Geneva,  Switzerland  (SportsNetwork.com) -  Thomaz Bellucci won the inaugural
 Geneva Open title with a straight-set victory over Joao Sousa on Saturday.
 
 Bellucci  beat  the sixth-seeded Sousa 7-6  (7-4), 6-4 to claim his fourth ATP
 World Tour crown and first since prevailing on the clay at Gstaad in 2012.
 
 The 27-year-old Bellucci improved to 4-2 in his career ATP finals, while Sousa
 fell to 1-3 in finals.
 
 "It  wasn't easy to play today," said Bellucci. "It was very windy. I was more
 solid  at the  baseline. Mentally I was  strong all week so maybe that was the
 key  today... The conditions  in Geneva are good for me. The ball bounces high
 and  I  like the  clay courts  here. It's similar  to where  I practise in Sao
 Paulo.  I'm  feeling  very  relaxed  and  happy  to  win  my  third  title  in
 Switzerland. I hope to come back next year."
 
 Sousa was attempting to become the first player to win an ATP World Tour title
 this  year  having rallied from  a match point  down during a tournament after
 saving four match points in his win over Pablo Andujar in the quarterfinals.
 
 The  French  Open starts Sunday.  Bellucci will  play Marinko Matosevic in the
 first round, while Sousa faces Vasek Pospisil.
 
 
                 === Thiem beats Mayer for first ATP title ===
 
 Nice,  France  (SportsNetwork.com) -  Austrian  Dominic  Thiem beat  Argentine
 Leonardo  Mayer  in Saturday's  final at the  Nice Open to  win his maiden ATP
 World Tour title.
 
 Thiem outlasted the fourth-seeded Mayer 6-7 (8-10), 7-5, 7-6 (7-2).
 
 The  21-year-old  Thiem is  the fourth  first-time ATP  World Tour winner this
 year,  joining Jiri Vesely (Auckland), Victor Estrella Burgos (Quito) and Jack
 Sock   (Houston).   He  is   also  the   eighth  player   born  in  the  1990s
 to earn a title.
 
 Thiem  played in  his second  ATP  final, having  finished as  a runner-up  in
 Kitzbuhel last year.
 
 "It's  really,  really special; the  first title  ever," said Thiem. "It's not
 only  this,  the match today was  a really, really good level. Leonardo played
 outstanding  and I was  fighting until the end. I think it was one of the best
 matches I've ever played.
 
 "The  first title, I will remember it forever, so I will also remember forever
 Nice."
 
 Mayer fell to 1-2 in his career finals.
 
 The  French Open  starts Sunday.  Thiem will  play Aljaz  Bedene in  the first
 round, while Mayer faces Vesely.
 
 
                      === Knapp wins second WTA title ===
 
 Nurnberg, Germany (SportsNetwork.com) - Karin Knapp outlasted Roberta Vinci in
 Saturday's all-Italian final at the Nurnberg Cup.
 
 The  sixth-seeded Knapp won her first title of the year with a 7-6 (7-5), 4-6,
 6-1 win over Vinci. Knapp is now 4-2 all-time against Vinci.
 
 The 27-year-old Knapp improved to 2-1 in her career WTA finals, with her other
 title coming last year in Tashkent.
 
 "I'm  really,  really happy  to win  the title," Knapp  said. "It's never easy
 against  Roberta, and  as you saw it was  a close match. But it's great to get
 the win and gain some good confidence for the French Open."
 
 The  fourth-seeded Vinci  reached the  final via  walkover when  second-seeded
 German  favorite  Angelique Kerber pulled  out of their scheduled semifinal on
 Friday.
 
 The 32-year-old Vinci fell to 9-4 in finals, with her last title coming in her
 hometown of Palermo in 2013.
 
 The French Open starts Sunday. Knapp will face Caroline Wozniacki in the first
 round, while Vinci squares off against Alize Cornet.
 
 
               === Stosur fights back to win Strasbourg title ===
 
 Strasbourg,  France  (SportsNetwork.com) -  Former U.S. Open champion Samantha
 Stosur  won her first title of the year with a three-set victory over Kristina
 Mladenovic of France in Saturday's final at the Strasbourg International.
 
 The  third-seeded Aussie Stosur rallied past Mladenovic 3-6, 6-2, 6-3. The 31-
 year-old Stosur is now 3-0 lifetime against the 5-foot-11 Mladenovic.
 
 Stosur  improved to 7-14  in her career WTA finals, with her last title coming
 in Osaka last year. She was a surprise U.S. Open champ in 2011.
 
 "It  was a last minute  decision to come here, so to play as well as I did and
 walk  away  with the title,  it's exciting, and  especially going into a Grand
 Slam. It's been a really good week for me in Strasbourg," said Stosur.
 
 The 22-year-old Mladenovic played in her first-ever WTA final.
 
 The  French  Open starts Sunday. Stosur  will face American Madison Brengle in
 the first round, while Mladenovic squares off against Eugenie Bouchard.
 
 
          === Dillon dominant in Xfinity Series race at Charlotte ===
 
 Concord,  NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Austin Dillon claimed his second win in the
 Xfinity Series this season with a dominating performance in Saturday's Hisense
 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
 
 Dillon,  a  regular in  the Sprint  Cup Series and  the 2013 Xfinity champion,
 started on the pole and led 163 of 200 laps around this 1.5-mile racetrack.
 
 Denny  Hamlin,  who is Dillon's  fellow competitor  in Sprint Cup, grabbed the
 lead from Dillon following the last restart with 34 laps to go. Earlier in the
 race,  Hamlin had  to pit  unexpectedly for  a loose  wheel and  fell one  lap
 behind.  He benefited from a caution shortly after to get back on the lead lap
 and then work his way through the field.
 
 Dillon  had dropped to third in the running order after the final restart, but
 he  worked his  way back to the top,  as he passed Hamlin for the lead with 15
 laps to go. Dillon beat Hamlin to the finish line by 2.7 seconds.
 
 "I  didn't want to  get out of this (car). It drove so good," Dillon said. "It
 was  a heck of a  race there with Denny at the end. I had to go right there in
 lapped  traffic. I knew that if I didn't hurry up and get in front of him, the
 tires might equal out or something."
 
 Dillon,  the  driver of the No.  33 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet, scored
 his  fourth career victory  in Xfinity. All four of them have occurred on 1.5-
 mile  tracks. He won both Kentucky races from the pole during the 2012 season.
 On  March 7, he  took the checkered flag at Las Vegas after starting first and
 leading 183 of 200 laps there.
 
 Hamlin  made his last scheduled start in the No. 54 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota in
 Xfinity this season. Kyle Busch had normally driven that car until he suffered
 a  broken  right leg and  left foot during an  accident in the Xfinity season-
 opener at Daytona three months ago. Busch is scheduled to compete in his first
 Sprint  Cup points-paying  race  this  season in  Sunday's  600-mile event  at
 Charlotte.
 
 "Austin  did  a great job  coming back there," Hamlin  said. "I'm happy with a
 second-place  finish, considering  what I thought we  had for a car all day. I
 thought  we were probably a fifth-or-sixth-place car at best, but we were able
 to  get a  good restart and tried to  hold those guys off. (Dillon) just had a
 little too much speed for me."
 
 Kasey Kahne, who drove the No. 5 car for JR Motorsports in this race, finished
 third, while his teammate, Regan Smith, an Xfinity regular, placed fourth.
 
 Darrell  Wallace Jr.,  a rookie in the series this season, was fifth, followed
 by  Daniel Suarez,  also a  rookie in  2015, and  Ty Dillon,  who is  Austin's
 younger brother.
 
 Smith,  Wallace, Suarez  and Ty  Dillon  were the  top-four finishing  Xfinity
 regulars  in  this race  and therefore  qualified for the  first "Dash 4 Cash"
 event  in the series this season, which is next Saturday at Dover. The highest
 finisher of those four drivers at Dover will collect a $100,000 bonus.
 
 Chase  Elliott, the defending Xfinity champion, finished eighth, while Elliott
 Sadler and Ryan Blaney completed the top-10.
 
 Despite   finishing  11th,  Chris  Buescher  remained  atop  the  championship
 standings.  Ty Dillon  trimmed  Buescher's  lead from  eight  points to  four.
 Elliott is now 28 points behind the leader, while Wallace trails by 30.
 
 Buescher took over the points lead last weekend when he won at Iowa.
 
 
               === Hamilton takes pole position for Monaco GP ===
 
 Monaco  (SportsNetwork.com) -  Days after  he signed  his three-year  contract
 extension  with Mercedes  that's reportedly worth $150 million, Lewis Hamilton
 claimed the pole position for the Monaco Grand Prix after beating his teammate
 and championship rival, Nico Rosberg, in Saturday's qualifying.
 
 Hamilton,  the two-time and defending Formula One world champion, posted a lap
 time  of 1  minute, 15.098 seconds on  the famed Monte Carlo street circuit to
 earn  his first pole  for the Monaco GP. His lap was 0.342 seconds faster than
 Rosberg.  Hamilton  won this race  for the first  time after starting third in
 2008, the year he captured his first F1 title with McLaren.
 
 It's  fifth  time in  six grand prix  this season that  Hamilton will start on
 pole. He also scored his 43rd career pole in F1.
 
 "It's  been a long time," Hamilton said after winning his first Monaco GP pole
 in  his  ninth attempt.  "I can't  express how happy  I am.  It wasn't an easy
 (qualifying)  session.  I had a  lot of  things that kind  of threw me off the
 rhythm.  I  didn't have the  rhythm until  the last two  laps, so I was really
 happy with that."
 
 During  his final lap  in the last round of qualifying (Q3), Rosberg locked up
 his right-front tire in the tight Ste-Devote turn and had to abort his lap. He
 also  locked up  in the same area late  in Q2. Rosberg had the quickest lap in
 the first round of qualifying.
 
 "I  had  a good  rhythm starting  off in  qualifying, which  I didn't have all
 weekend,"  Rosberg said.  "I lost  touch a  little bit  towards the  end while
 trying to go for it. I knew Lewis was going to be quick, so I needed to go for
 it, but it didn't work out."
 
 Rosberg  has won the last two Monaco GPs from the pole. He also started on the
 pole  and won  the most recent grand  prix in Spain two weeks ago, which moved
 him  to within 20 points of Hamilton for the lead in the F1 world championship
 standings.
 
 The  pole  sitter for the Monaco  GP has won the  race 10 times in the past 11
 years,  including  the previous six. Monte  Carlo is one of the most difficult
 circuits on the F1 calendar. Overtaking here is virtually impossible.
 
 "It's difficult to express how hard this track is," Hamilton said.
 
 In last year's qualifying for the Monaco GP, Hamilton was furious with Rosberg
 after  Rosberg ran  wide and had to pull  over on to an escape road during his
 final  lap. He held  the provisional pole at the time. Hamilton was making his
 last  run but had to slow his pace, as the yellow flags were displayed for his
 teammate's  incident. It  prevented Hamilton from a possibility of winning the
 pole.
 
 Sebastian Vettel from Ferrari qualified third for Sunday's race, 0.751 seconds
 behind  Hamilton.  A Ferrari  driver has  not won the  Monaco GP since Michael
 Schumacher in 2001.
 
 "I'm generally happy with the result," Vettel said. "It was a good session for
 us.  P3  is a good place  to start from  tomorrow. Hopefully, we can split the
 Mercedes and therefore have an exciting race."
 
 Red  Bull teammates Daniel Ricciardo and Daniel Kvyat placed fourth and fifth,
 respectively,  while Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen took the sixth spot after he was
 involved in an accident during final practice, held prior to qualifying.
 
 Sergio Perez from Force India qualified seventh. Toro Rosso's Carlos Sainz had
 qualified  eighth, but  Sainz will have to  start the race from pit lane -- in
 last  place  -- after  he was  penalized for  failing to  stop for a mandatory
 weighing during Q1.
 
 The Monaco race stewards said that Sainz "failed to stop for weighing during
 Q1 when signaled to do so by the red traffic light, the car was not returned
 to the FIA garage and work was undertaken."
 
 Pastor  Maldonado from Lotus moved up to eighth on the starting grid, followed
 by  17-year-old Max  Verstappen, who  is a  teammate of  Sainz, and  McLaren's
 Jenson Button.
 
 Lotus  driver  Romain Grosjean had  qualified 11th, but Grosjean was penalized
 five grid places for an unscheduled gearbox change.
 
 The  Williams duo of Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas struggled in qualifying.
 Bottas  did not  make it out of Q1.  He will start 16th. Massa placed 14th but
 will move up two spots on the grid due to Sainz and Grosjean's penalties.
 
 
                      === Na stays on top at Colonial ===
 
 Fort Worth, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Kevin Na managed a 1-under 69 on Saturday
 and  ended  three rounds  one stroke  clear of  the field  at the Crowne Plaza
 Invitational.
 
 Na  finished 54 holes  at 11-under-par 199. He will go for his second PGA Tour
 win on Sunday.
 
 Ian  Poulter  stumbled to  a 4-putt double-bogey  to fall from  a share of the
 lead. He got those shots back en route to posting a 68 at Colonial, which left
 him one stroke off the lead at minus-10.
 
 Charley Hoffman climbed into third place at 9-under-par 201 thanks to a third-
 round  66. Chris  Kirk (65)  and Brandt  Snedeker (66)  share fourth  place at
 minus-8.
 
 Rory  Sabbatini  also posted  a 4-under  66 to move  into a  tie for sixth. He
 stands  alongside George McNeill (69), Brian Harman (69) and Kevin Kisner (67)
 at 7-under-par 203.
 
 Defending  champion Adam  Scott (66) and Masters winner Jordan Spieth (67) are
 among seven players that share 10th place at minus-6.
 
 Na  followed a pair  of pars to open his round with a 16-foot birdie effort at
 the third. At the fifth, a bad drive led to a bogey, which dropped him back to
 minus-10.
 
 The 31-year-old ran off five pars in a row from the sixth. He played his third
 on the par-5 11th to seven feet and he rolled that in for birdie. After a trio
 of pars, Na missed the green at the 15th, but chipped to five feet.
 
 Na  failed to convert that par putt to slip back into a share of the lead with
 Poulter. Na atoned for that mistake with a 14-foot birdie effort at No. 17. He
 parred the last to end one clear of Poulter.
 
 "It  wasn't playing  easy. It  was a  bit breezy.  It was  tough to  judge the
 distance  on some of  the shots, and I hung in there today," said Na. "I broke
 par,  and I  still have the lead, which  is good. I made a great bogey on five
 ... it was nice to close with a birdie and a par on 18."
 
 Poulter opened a steady front nine with a short birdie effort at the first. He
 parred five in a row before pouring in a 30-footer for birdie on the seventh.
 
 That  gave the Englishman  a share of the lead, but he didn't stay there long.
 Poulter parred eight and nine, before his putter let him down at the 10th.
 
 Poulter's  approach stopped 16  feet from the hole. He ran his first two putts
 by  the hole,  then failed  to make  his bogey  try. The  double-bogey dropped
 Poulter two back.
 
 He  came right  back with a 6-footer  for birdie at 11 and briefly reclaimed a
 piece  of the lead thanks to a 32-foot birdie putt on the 15th. Poulter parred
 the final three to finish there.
 
 "I  played lovely.  Overall assessment of the  round of golf - I put myself in
 position, gave myself plenty of chances, took a few, and then had a bizarre 4-
 putt  on 10, which  was strange to be honest. As good as I putted all week, as
 good  as  my stroke felt  all week, that one  was just strange," Poulter said.
 "I'm in a good position and I'm happy with my game."
 
 McNeill  birdied four of the first six holes to soar into a share of the lead.
 However,  he had  three bogeys and nine  pars over the final 12 holes to slide
 four behind.
 
 NOTES:  This is  the fifth time Na has  owned the 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour
 ...  He  won one of  the previous four  times he was  in that position ... Tee
 times were moved up again on Sunday with inclement weather in the forecast ...
 Harrison Frazar, Chad Collins, Jarrod Lyle, Steve Wheatcroft, Patrick Rodgers,
 John Peterson and Kyle Reifers missed the secondary cut after the third round.
 
 
                  === An joins Molinari in lead at BMW PGA ===
 
 Surrey,  England  (SportsNetwork.com) -  Byeong Hun  An fired  a 5-under 67 in
 Saturday's  third  round to join Francesco  Molinari, who carded a 4-under 68,
 atop the leaderboard at the BMW PGA Championship.
 
 Molinari,  a three-time  tour winner,  held the  outright lead  at the  end of
 the  first and  second rounds,  and An  came  from one  shot back  to tie  the
 Italian.  The duo holds a 2-shot lead at 14-under-par 202 after 54 holes.
 
 "It  wasn't  easy today. It's  never easy when you  lead a tournament from the
 start,"  Molinari admitted. "I'm  happy with what I did today. There was a lot
 of  guys doing some  pretty special stuff out there so to still be out on top,
 even with co-leading, it's a good result."
 
 Thongchai  Jaidee grabbed the lead early on in his round and wound up shooting
 a  68 as well at Wentworth. Jaidee is two shots back and alone in third at 12-
 under 204.
 
 Tommy  Fleetwood used  an albatross on the  fourth hole to shoot a 7-under 65,
 vaulting  him  into fourth  at minus-11.  Miguel Angel  Jimenez (68), the 2008
 champion, made his second hole-in-one in as many weeks and is one shot further
 back at 10-under 206.
 
 Beginning  the day in second place and one shot back of Molinari, An tapped in
 for  birdie at the  first to tie for the lead. Molinari responded at the par-4
 third  with a  4-foot  birdie, giving  him  the outright  lead  once again  at
 minus-11.
 
 However,  on the next  hole An drained his second gain at four to tie the lead
 once again.
 
 Following  a trio  of pars from No.  4, Molinari nearly holed out for eagle on
 No.  7 and  tapped in for his  birdie. A 10-footer dropped for Molinari on the
 next hole, making it back-to-back birdies and moving him to minus-13.
 
 In  the  meantime, An was  three shots  back due to  his first bogey on seven.
 While  Molinari  made three more pars  from nine, An  went on a run with three
 birdies in four holes from 11.
 
 Although  Molinari made back-to-back gains on 12 and 13 to stay three ahead of
 An,  the South Korean's  birdie at 14 paired with Molinari's first bogey in 28
 holes on the par-3 trimmed his lead to one.
 
 Molinari  struggled a bit down the stretch, but was able to make four straight
 pars to finish.
 
 Although An fell two back with a bogey on 15, he finished strong with back-to-
 back  birdies on  the closing  par-5s  at 17  and  18, pulling  him even  with
 Molinari.
 
 "I  finished  birdie-birdie and  18 is not  easy where the  flag is today," An
 said.  "I putted well and hit it well, a good round of golf ... I probably hit
 it  well in almost every event but didn't putt well, but this week I think the
 putting  was key  to get  me  into the  co-lead  going into  the final  round.
 Tomorrow hopefully I'll shoot the same."
 
 Jaidee got off to a roaring start with birdies on one and two. A 20-foot eagle
 on  No. 4  gave Jaidee  the  advantage at  the  time, but  four straight  pars
 followed by a bogey on nine dropped him out of the lead.
 
 The 45-year-old from Thailand finished with a rather routine back nine, making
 birdies on 12 and 18 to go along with a bogey on 14.
 
 Fleetwood  not only  holed out  from  198 yards  on  the par-5  fourth for  an
 albatross,  he also  drained  an eagle  from  about  25 feet  on  No. 12.  The
 Englishman also made four birdies and two bogeys in his round of 65.
 
 NOTES:  Molinari is seeking his first win since the 2012 Open de Espana ... An
 has  never won on  the European Tour ... Jimenez's hole-in-one was his 10th on
 the  European  Tour, breaking  a tie  with Colin Montgomerie  for most in tour
 history  ... Jimenez has three aces this season and two in as many weeks after
 he  made  one on No. 8  in the second round  at last week's Open de Espana ...
 Fleetwood's 65 was the low round of the day.
 
 
              === Montgomerie grabs 3-shot lead at Senior PGA ===
 
 French  Lick, IN  (SportsNetwork.com) -  Defending champion  Colin Montgomerie
 carded a 2-under 70 in Saturday's third round and moved three strokes clear of
 Bernhard Langer at the Senior PGA Championship.
 
 Montgomerie completed 54 holes at 5-under-par 211. He is looking for his third
 victory on the Champions Tour, and third major championship title as well.
 
 "I'm  glad that  putt went  in  at the  last.  Yes, delighted  with the  day's
 performance,"  Montgomerie  said. "It was  going to  be tricky, of course it's
 going  to  be tricky,  there's no  question. It's a  very, very difficult golf
 course. It's back to proper major golf, where par means something."
 
 Langer,  the 2008 runner-up, moved into second place at minus-2 with a 3-under
 69 in the third round on the Pete Dye Course at French Lick Resort.
 
 Scott Verplank (70), Esteban Toledo (73) and Brian Henninger (74) are the only
 other players in red figures at 1-under-par 215.
 
 Steve  Jones matched  the low round of  the day with his 4-under 68. He soared
 into  a share of  sixth place at even-par 216. Jones was joined there by Sandy
 Lyle (70) and Woody Austin (72).
 
 Second-round  leader  Tom Lehman struggled to  five bogeys on the back nine en
 route to a 6-over 78, which dropped him into a tie for 13th at plus-2.
 
 Montgomerie  stumbled out of the gate with a bogey at the first, which dropped
 him  to  minus-2 and two behind  Lehman. As Montgomerie ran off seven straight
 pars from the second, Lehman faltered.
 
 The  second-round leader dropped  a shot at three, but came back with a birdie
 at the fifth. Lehman tripped to back-to-back bogeys at six and seven to dip to
 minus-2.  He got one  back with a birdie at the ninth, but Lehman bogeyed five
 of the last nine holes to fall from contention.
 
 Montgomerie  dropped in a birdie at the ninth, and another at the 11th to move
 to  minus-4. The  Scotsman parred six straight  from the 12th. At the last, he
 stuffed his approach within two feet and kicked that in for a closing birdie.
 
 "I  was delighted only  to drop one shot today, which happened to be the first
 from  the middle of the fairway. It was a crazy second shot. I don't know what
 I  was doing,  I just  pulled an  approach wedge  left of  the green  and then
 unfortunately made bogey," explained Montgomerie. "But to play the rest of the
 round 3-under with no mistakes was a good effort. And I'm very proud of what I
 achieved today, because you had to play chess with the course."
 
 Langer  traded a  birdie for a bogey  from the first. He birdied the fifth and
 jumped to minus-2 with a hole-out eagle at the par-4 eighth.
 
 Around  the turn,  Langer slid  back to  even-par with  bogeys at  13 and  16.
 However, he birdied the final two holes to end alone in second place.
 
 "I made a stupid bogey on 16. I was 80 yards away for my third shot, it was an
 awkward  stance on a  mound and just hit it too hard, came out flying and over
 the  green.  So, I  wasn't a happy  camper walking off  that green, making six
 there," said Langer. "Very pleased with the way I finished."
 
 Henninger  bounced back from bogeys at the fourth and sixth with three birdies
 in  a 4-hole  span from the ninth. That  burst gave him a share of the lead at
 minus-3.  At the  par-5 16th, Henninger lost  a ball in the tall grass left of
 the  fairway and that  led to a triple-bogey, which dropped him to minus-1. He
 parred the final two holes to end there.
 
 NOTES: Montgomerie is looking to become the first player since Hale Irwin, who
 won  this event  three straight years from 1996-98, to successfully defend his
 title  ... Montgomerie leads  going into the final round for the third time on
 the Champions Tour.
 
 
              === Morita-Wanyaolu wins Symetra Classic playoff ===
 
 Charlotte,  NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Haruka Morita-Wanyaolu birdied the second
 playoff hole Saturday to defeat Augusta James and win the Symetra Classic.
 
 Morita-Wanyaolu  and  James shared  second place entering  the final round and
 both closed with 5-under 67s to end at 12-under-par 204.
 
 They  returned to the 18th for the extra session. Both made par the first time
 around,  and  the second  time they  played the  18th, Morita-Wanyaolu holed a
 birdie effort for her first Symetra Tour win.
 
 Morita-Wanyaolu birdied three in a row from the second. She bogeyed the eighth
 to dip to minus-9, but got that back with a birdie on the 12th. Birdies 15 and
 16 moved Morita-Wanyaolu to 12-under before she parred 17 and 18.
 
 James, who won earlier this year, ran off three straight from the first. Like,
 Morita-Wanyaolu, James also bogeyed No. 8. Birdies at 11 and 15 moved James to
 11-under. She birdied the 18th to force the playoff.
 
 Rachel  Rohanna also closed  with a 67 to take third at minus-11. Lindy Duncan
 (68)  grabbed fourth at 9-under 207. Second-round leader Haley Italia stumbled
 to a 1-over 73 to slide into a share of seventh at 7-under 209.
