C2 TUESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2012 SCOREBOARD LEXINGTON HERALD-LEADER | KENTUCKY.COM GOLF JOHNNY PESKY 1919-2012 Former St. X star Thomas in second at U.S. Amateur Stalwart beloved by Red Sox fans Former St. Xavier standout Justin Thomas had an eagle, three birdies and no bogeys in his first round at the U.S. Amateur, which started with 311 other golfers Monday in Aurora, Colo. Thomas, who was at 5-under par, trails only his University of Alabama teammate Bobby Wyatt, who was at 7 under. Wyatt birdied four of the first five holes. “Hopefully, I can play a good round (Tuesday),” Wyatt said. “I am feeling really good about my game right now. Hopefully, I can carry it along all week.” Thomas, the Jack Nicklaus award winner as the top collegiate golfer this past season, did not miss a green during his round. “I hit it pretty well,” Thomas said. “I just took advantage of my scoring opportunities. I’m obviously going to be pleased anytime I shoot a 65.” He also took note of his college teammate’s standout round. “Didn’t surprise me at all,” Thomas said of Wyatt. “Bobby is an unbelievable player and he’s playing really good. I didn’t expect anything less from him.” The top 64 finishers will advance to match play, which begins Wednesday and will be played on the 7,409-yard, par-71 course at Cherry Hills Country Club. Any ties will be resolved by a playoff prior to the commencement of match play, which concludes Sunday. University of Kentucky golfer David Snyder, a Somerset graduate, opened with an even-par round and is tied for 46th. Love to take time on Ryder Cup picks Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III filled out his roster of assistants on Monday by adding Scott Verplank and Jeff Sluman. Far more interesting is his decision in three weeks when he picks four Americans who will be hitting shots and trying to win back the cup. For the first time since 2006, the PGA Championship did nothing to change the standings in the final qualifying event for the U.S. team. Tiger Woods was No. 1 on the list of eight automatic qualifiers, with Phil Mickelson holding down the final spot. Love announces his four captain’s picks Sept. 4, the day after the second FedEx Cup playoff event. He indicated that the next three players in the standings — Hunter Mahan, Steve Stricker and Jim Furyk — were likely selections, calling them “high on the list.” As for the rest of them? “We have three weeks to watch them,” Love said. “We have a chance to watch a guy get hot. How are these guys playing now that they can relax and don’t have to try to make points? Now they are shifting gears a little bit. And we want to see how they play. Obviously, we don’t have to go tell them that they are under the gun. They know that there’s three more tournaments.” Brandt Snedeker and Bill Haas are the only players under serious consideration who are competing this week in Greensboro, N.C. The real emphasis begins the following two weeks at The Barclays, which features the top 125 on the PGA Tour at Bethpage Black; and the Deutsche Bank Championship. The other qualifiers were Matt Kuchar, Zach Johnson, Master champion Bubba Watson; and Ryder Cup newcomers Keegan Bradley, Jason Dufner and U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson. Dufner and Bradley will be playing for the first time in any cup competition. OLYMPICS Belarus shot putter loses gold for doping Just hours after the close of the Olympics, a female shot putter from Belarus was stripped of her gold Monday in the first case of an athlete losing a medal for doping at the London Games. With the disqualification of Nadzeya Ostapchuk, the gold medal was awarded to Valerie Adams of New Zealand — who winds up as Olympic champion for the second time in a row. The International Olympic Committee said Ostapchuk, a former world champion, tested positive for steroids both before and after winning the shot put last week for her first Olympic gold. After an IOC hearing, she was formally expelled from the games and had her victory and medal removed from the records. She was the eighth athlete, and first medalist, caught during the IOC’s London drug-testing program. “Catching cheats like this sends a message to all those who dope that we will catch them,” IOC spokesman Mark Adams said. Valerie Adams was bumped up from Olympic silver to gold, with Evgeniia Kolodko of Russia upgraded to silver and fourth-place finisher Gong Lijiao of China moved up to bronze. HORSE RACING No Travers for Haskell winner Paynter Paynter, winner of the Grade I Haskell Invitational last month, will not run in the $1 million Travers at Saratoga Race Course on Aug. 25, owner Ahmed Zayat said Monday. Trained by Bob Baffert, Paynter spiked a fever two days after his Haskell triumph at Monmouth Park and was sent to Mid-Atlantic Equine Medical Center in New Jersey to monitor his treatment. The son of Awesome Again arrived at Belmont Park last Friday with designs on a possible Travers start but the turnaround was deemed too quick. “This colt is special. Let’s not run him in Travers. He won’t be ready in time,” Zayat posted on his Twitter account. Paynter finished second to Union Rags by a neck in the Belmont Stakes in what was just his fifth career start. The bay colt then rolled to a 3¾ length Haskell victory over a field that included Grade I winners Dullahan and Gemologist. Baffert still has Grade I winner Liaison on track for the 1¼-mile Travers. The Indian Charlie colt worked 5 furlongs in 1:00.38 on Saratoga’s main track Monday morning. Expected for the Travers as well are Jim Dandy winner Alpha and runner-up Neck n’ Neck; Street Life and Five Sixteen, first and second in the Curlin; Haskell runner-up Nonios and third-place finisher Stealcase; and champion Hansen, most recently fourth in the Grade II West Virginia Derby, along with Cogito, Atigun and possibly Teeth of the Dog, NYRA stakes coordinator Andrew Byrnes said. ■ For the second time in five days, Ramon Dominguez rode four winners at Saratoga to widen his lead in the jockey standings. With 39 wins through the first four weeks of the meet, Dominguez holds an 18-win lead over Javier Castellano and Jose Lezcano, who are tied for second in the jockey standings with 21 wins apiece. Dominguez started the day with a win on Buckeye Heart. Dominguez guided Synthesizer ($40.80 to win) to an upset in the fourth race, then followed that with a victory aboard King David in the fifth. His final win of the day was on Ea in the eighth. HIS CAREER SPANNED MORE THAN 60 YEARS By Howard Ulman Associated Press BOSTON — Adored by generations of Red Sox fans, Johnny Pesky was so much a part of Boston baseball that the right-field foul pole at Fenway Park was named for him. Pesky, who played, managed and served as a broadcaster for the Red Sox in a baseball career that lasted more than 60 years, died Monday. He was 92. “The national pastime has lost one of its greatest ambassadors,” baseball commissioner Bud Selig said. “Johnny Pesky, who led a great American life, was an embodiment of loyalty and goodwill for the Boston Red Sox and all of Major League Baseball.” Pesky died just more than a week after his final visit to Fenway, on Aug. 5 when Boston beat the Minnesota Twins 6-4.

Baseball MINOR LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE VOLLEYBALL UK starts season ranked 13th in nation The Kentucky volleyball team was ranked 13th in the American Volleyball Coaches Association’s pre-season poll. It’s the third time in the past four seasons that the Wildcats will start the season in the top 25. And the ranking matches a program-best by the 1983 squad. Kentucky starts its season with the Kentucky Classic at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24, against North Carolina. MINOR-LEAGUE BASEBALL Sand Gnats slip past Legends 4-3 Savannah pitchers walked eight batters, but the Sand Gnats held on for a 4-3 victory against the Lexington Legends on Monday night in Georgia. The Legends’ batters only managed four hits, two by second baseman Chan Moon. The last word New Zealand’s Valerie Adams after learning she won the gold medal in the women’s shot put at the London Olympics after Belarus’ Nadzeya Ostapchuk was disqualified for doping: “What’s happened has happened and what’s my feeling towards her? None at all. I don’t want to waste any energy on her. What I want to do is enjoy the moment and savor the moment. It’s a pity it came out a week later (than the event).” WIRE, STAFF AND SPECIAL REPORTS NORTH DIVISION W L Pct GB Scranton/WB (Yankees). . 69 54 .561 — Pawtucket (Red Sox) . . . . 66 56 .541 2½ Lehigh Valley (Phillies) . . . 66 58 .532 3½ Rochester (Twins). . . . . . . 62 61 .504 7 Syracuse (Nationals) . . . . 60 64 .484 9½ Buffalo (Mets) . . . . . . . . . 59 63 .484 9½ South Division Charlotte (White Sox) . . . . 71 53 .573 — Norfolk (Orioles) . . . . . . . . 62 62 .500 9 Durham (Rays). . . . . . . . . 57 67 .460 14 Gwinnett (Braves). . . . . . . 55 68 .447 15½ West Division Indianapolis (Pirates) . . . . 74 49 .602 — Columbus (Indians) . . . . . 64 59 .520 10 Toledo (Tigers) . . . . . . . . . 50 74 .403 24½ Louisville (Reds) . . . . . . . . 48 75 .390 26 Monday’s games Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 6, Syracuse 4 Toledo 7, Durham 5 Lehigh Valley 5, Rochester 3 Louisville at Gwinnett, 7:05 p.m. Pawtucket at Buffalo, 7:05 p.m. Charlotte 6, Norfolk 0 Tuesday’s games Toledo at Syracuse, 7 p.m. Durham at Columbus, 7:05 p.m. Lehigh Valley at Buffalo, 7:05 p.m. Pawtucket vs. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre at Pawtucket, 7:05 p.m. Indianapolis at Rochester, 7:05 p.m. Gwinnett at Norfolk, 7:15 p.m. Louisville at Charlotte, 7:15 p.m. Wednesday’s games Pawtucket vs. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre at Pawtucket, 5:35 p.m., 1st game Toledo at Syracuse, 7 p.m. Lehigh Valley at Buffalo, 7:05 p.m. Durham at Columbus, 7:05 p.m. Indianapolis at Rochester, 7:05 p.m. Louisville at Charlotte, 7:15 p.m. MICHAEL DWYER | ASSOCIATED PRESS Red Sox great Johnny Pesky tipped his cap in 2006, the year the foul pole at Fenway Park was officially named for him. Yet for many in the legion of Red Sox fans, their last image of Pesky will be from the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park on April 20, when the man known for his warmth, kindness and outstanding baseball career was moved to tears at a pre-game ceremony.

It was at another ceremony less than six years earlier that Pesky’s name was officially inscribed in the rich history of the Red Sox and their home, a fitting tribute to a career .307 hitter and longtime teammate and friend of Ted Williams. On his 87th birthday, Sept. 27, 2006, a plaque was unveiled at the base of the foul pole just 302 feet from home plate, designating it “Pesky’s Pole.” The term was coined by former Red Sox pitcher Mel Parnell, who during a broadcast in the 1950s recalled Pesky winning a game for him with a home run around the pole. From there, a legend seemed to grow that Pesky frequently curled shots that way — actually, only six of his 17 career home runs came at Fenway.

The funeral home did not announce a cause of death. Pesky made his major league debut in 1942 with the Red Sox. That season he set the team record for hits by a rookie with 205, a mark that stood until 1997 when fellow Red Sox shortstop Nomar Garciaparra had 209. Pesky spent the next three years in the Navy during World War II, although he did not see combat. He was back with the Red Sox through 1952.
