SAN DIEGO - After the way they were pounded here on Monday, the Atlanta Braves will gladly head home with a 3-3 record on a West Coast trip.
ATLANTA - In what passed for nothing more than an exhibition game, rookie Jeff Teague set career highs with 24 points and 15 assists and the Atlanta Hawks cruised past the LeBron James-less Cleveland Cavaliers 99-83 in a regular-season finale Wednesday night that had plenty of star power - on the bench.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Hendrick Motorsports isn't scheduled to have an open seat in its lineup until 2012.
SPARTANBURG, S.C.-Andy Moye of Georgia Southern and Chris Patterson of Appalachian State have been selected as the league's Co-Pitchers of the Week for all games from April 5-11. This is the second honor for the junior right-handed pitcher in two weeks from the league's office.
Moye (Alpharetta, Ga.) pitched 7.0 scoreless innings in Georgia Southern's 4-0 shutout of Elon on Sunday afternoon. The junior right-hander improved to 4-3 on the season as he scattered three hits, all singles, and only allowed one base runner to reach third base. Moye struck out eight Elon hitters ...
AUGUSTA – A perfect storm of historic circumstances has all led to this epic finale. It's Sunday at the 2010 Masters, and this is my running (well, briskly walking) journal following the final two pairings – Tiger Woods (-8) and K.J. Choi (-8), trailed by the leaders, Lee Westwood (-12) and Phil Mickelson (-11).
It's been a while since a 20-year-old, seven-hole hitting right fielder got as much attention as Braves rookie Jason Heyward has gotten since spring training started up and on through his first-career at-bat which was good for three RBIs and an abrupt homer.

AUGUSTA - Even sweeter than Phil Mickelson slipping into another green jacket was seeing his wife waiting for him behind the 18th green Sunday at Augusta National with tears streaming down her face.
AUGUSTA - Lee Westwood heard the ground-shaking roars for just about everyone but him on a Saturday that sounded an awful lot like Sunday at the Masters.
AUGUSTA – It's like a frat party on Easter for adults. With the camaraderie and booze of a college soiree combined with the reverence of a religious holiday, The Masters is true to its billing as 'a place like no other'.
WASHINGTON - Jamal Crawford scored 23 of his 28 points in the second half and the Atlanta Hawks snapped a six-game road losing streak with a 105-95 victory over the Washington Wizards on Saturday night.
ATHENS - Under normal circumstances, redshirt freshman Zach Mettenberger might have used his G-Day performance Saturday to springboard to starting the 2010 season opener for Georgia.
ATLANTA - Quarterback Kelton Hill passed for two touchdowns and Malcolm Smith ran for a TD Saturday in the first spring game of Georgia State's new football program.
Citizens of Statesboro, I apologize for the delay on this column. Padraig Harrington and Sergio Garcia's molasses slow play prevented me from writing it sooner. If you've won the Golden Ticket in the form of a Masters badge for Sunday's play, this could help. If you plan on trying to make the trek from Beautiful Eagle Creek to Rae's Creek in future years, just buy a frame and hang it on your wall (Do not actually put this article in that frame. That would be ridiculous. I was simply advocating supporting Statesboro's local frame dealers).
