Edwin Jackson pitched seven shutout innings and remained unbeaten against Cleveland this season, and the first-place Tigers kept their slender AL Central lead over Minnesota with a 3-1 win over the Indians, who dropped their ninth in a row Tuesday night. In losing nine of 13, the Tigers let a seven-game lead on Sept. 6 slip to two over the Twins last weekend. But with their second straight win, they stayed 2 1/2 games ahead of Minnesota, which defeated Chicago. -- associated press

KEY MOMENT: Yasiel Puig had not played since spraining a thumb on a headfirst dive Saturday. But, as the Dodgers loaded the bases with none out in the ninth inning, there was Puig, headed to the on-deck circle and then the plate, as Dodger Stadium went nuts. Puig struck out looking, but the Dodgers scored three runs off Detroit closer Joe Nathan to force extra innings. AT THE PLATE: Carl Crawford had a pair of doubles, Juan Uribe had three singles, and Dee Gordon had two singles.

Josh Beckett was not great. The Dodgers do not need him to be, and that makes for a pretty great situation for the home team. Think about it. What other team could afford to employ a guy making close to $16 million as a fifth starter, with no shortage of experienced understudies behind him? In his first major league start in 11 months, Beckett lasted four innings, gave up five runs and got no decision in the Dodgers' 7-6 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday in 10 innings. He was long gone by the time Victor Martinez roughed up Kenley Jansen again.

DETROIT - The Angels turned to their bullpen to protect a narrow lead Saturday night and the familiar sting of the second half returned. Angels reliever Garrett Richards surrendered two eighth-inning singles before a two-out, two-run double by Jhonny Peralta as the Tigers snapped the Angels' four-game winning streak, 5-3, at Comerica Park. The loss dropped the Angels (66-61) 3 1/2 games behind American League wild-card leaders Tampa Bay and Oakland, while Detroit (68-58) moved back to 2 1/2 games ahead of the Angels.

Don Mattingly didn't have to come to the ballpark Monday, so the Dodgers manager said he got his hair cut, inflated the tires on his bicycle and, basically, took the evening off. "A lot of nothing," he said with a smile. "It was productive. " That remains to be seen. Because for players accustomed to playing every day over a six-month schedule, the start to the Dodgers' season has been a whole lot of nothing. BOX SCORE: Dodgers 3, Tigers 2 (10) Monday's off day was the third in eight days for the Dodgers, who get two more days off over the next week.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The slow and awkward decay of the powerful aura of Tiger Woods continued here Tuesday on a rain-soaked golfing cathedral that smelled like a damp towel. For the first time in 20 years, Woods will not be here for the Masters, a tournament he has won four times, his virtual ownership of Augusta National symbolizing his decades of dominance. Yet his fellow golfers do not sound relieved. They do not act as if reprieved. They spoke of this giant, haunting presence with neither fear nor reverence.

You know the sound a golf gallery makes when a five-foot birdie putt lips out? Ohhhhhhhhh. That's the groan that also accompanied the news that a rehabbing Tiger Woods would miss the Masters for the first time since 1994. That year, Jose Maria Olazabal triumphed on a 6,925-yard course, and Woods was voted "most likely to succeed" by classmates at Western High in Anaheim. Without Woods, there's no "Will he pass Jack Nicklaus" talk. There's less buzz. Fewer casual fans will tune in. CBS' Jim Nantz, during an appearance on "The Dan Patrick Show," called Woods' absence "the story that dwarfs all others.

ORLANDO, Fla. - On a day when news broke that Tiger Woods was diagnosed with a bulging disk, Adam Scott was diagnosed with a bulging lead. Scott will be under observation for the next two days as he tries to carry the Arnold Palmer Invitational on his back with the ease of a world-class weightlifter. The Aussie leads the tournament by seven shots and is 14 under at the midway point, following up his course-record-tying 62 with a solid 68 on Friday at Bay Hill. Scott set more tournament records, besting the previous largest lead here after 36 holes: Paul Azinger (1988)

TEMPE, Ariz. - The Detroit Tigers needed help at shortstop, and the Angels took advantage of that need to fortify their pitching depth. The Angels acquired left-hander Jose Alvarez from the Tigers on Friday for shortstop Andrew Romine. Angels General Manager Jerry Dipoto said Alvarez would join the team Sunday and could emerge as a minor league starter or major league swingman. Dipoto said the trade addressed the "much-discussed" issue of whether the Angels had sufficient depth among starting pitchers.

Leonardo DiCaprio is once again putting his money where his mouth is, donating $3 million through his Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation to help the World Wildlife Fund protect and nurture tigers in Nepal. At the 2010  Global Tiger Summit , a goal was set the double the number of wild tigers by 2022, the next Chinese year of the tiger. The  donation will be used specifically in Nepal, which is one of 13 countries with a wild tiger population. "Time is running out for the world's remaining 3,200 tigers, largely the result of habitat destruction and escalating illegal poaching," WWF board member DiCaprio said in a statement.

While Adam Scott continued to hold the lead midway through the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando, Fla., on Friday, much of the talk centered on the absent Tiger Woods. According to a Golfweek report , Woods has been diagnosed with a bulging disk that will not require surgery. Earlier this week, he called to inform Palmer that he was withdrawing from the tournament at Bay Hill, where he has won eight times in his career. "I think he's listening to the doctors," Palmer said on Wednesday. "And he mentioned that they're saying that he needs to give it a bit of a rest and see if he can work it out. " Woods has battled back problems since last summer.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Detroit Tigers needed help at shortstop, and the Angels took advantage of that need to fortify their pitching depth. The Angels acquired left-hander Jose Alvarez from the Tigers on Friday for shortstop Andrew Romine. Angels General Manager Jerry Dipoto said Alvarez would join the team Sunday and could emerge as a minor league starter or major league swingman. Romine, 28, was out of options and unlikely to make the Angels. Tigers General Manager Dave Dombrowski told reporters that the switch-hitting Romine could be the left-handed batter in a platoon to replace the injured Jose Iglesias.
