Former Gators QB Tim Tebow hits home run in minor league debut


Tebow pumped his fist in the air as he rounded the rest of the bases and the crowd went wild.

Tim Tebow has struggled to revive his athletics career as a pro baseball player. He struck out the next three times up - two of them looking. The home run came off Augusta left-hander Domenic Mazza , the No. Read More »

Unilever announced a wholesale review of business strategy shortly after rebuffing the bid and has additionally proposed upping its profit margin target from a current 16.4% to 20% by 2020. Unilever executives said it still made sense to keep its food business, excluding spreads, although they left the door open for big-ticket deals, by touting how much easier they would be if it ditched the dual listings and headquarters in London and Rotterdam, as a single listing would make it easier to ...

Sometimes that streaky nature can lead to a run of six missed cuts in seven starts, like he experienced at the beginning of a year ago, and sometimes it can lead to three straight rounds of 63, which Henley shot en route to victory in his very first start as a rookie in 2013. Read More »

Eagles Acquire Ravens DT Timmy Jernigan


Jernigan, 6-foot-1 and 299 pounds, had 90 tackles, 13 sacks, one interception and one fumble recovery in 43 career regular-season games (24 starts) with the Ravens . Making this trade now doesn't allow Jernigan to walk for free. The Ravens obviously feel that they won't be able to re-sign Jernigan after this year, so they figure they might as well get something (moving up in the third round of this year's draft) rather than just one year of Jernigan and then nothing.

DeChambeau, Points tied in Puerto Rico


A rain delay kept the second round from being completed. He birdied the par-five 18th, as did Points in capping a 69 that tied him for the lead on 11-under 133. But it offers a two-year exemption, and that would mean everything to Stroud and to Lunde, who do not have full status. It was Points' third PGA Tour win and his first since the 2013 Houston Open.
