DETROIT (AP) — Jason Kipnis sprinted around the bases after hitting each of his two homers, forgetting how it felt to trot after hitting the ball well enough to clear the fences.
Kipnis hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer and added a solo shot in the ninth to help the Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 9-3 on Friday night.
He began the game without a home run since April 21.
“I haven’t even done it (in) BP I feel like for two months,” Kipnis said.
After Kipnis’ tiebreaking homer, Asdrubal Cabrera sent the next pitch over the right-field fence to cap a seven-run seventh inning that helped Cleveland come back from a 3-0 deficit in the opener of a four-game series against the AL Central-leading Tigers.
Cleveland has scored 61 runs this season in the seventh inning, producing more than it has in any other inning.
“As long as we score before we have to go home,” Indians manager Terry Francona said.
Trevor Bauer (4-4) gave up three runs on six hits over six innings.

SYLVANIA, Ohio (AP) — Laura Diaz almost chose to walk away from golf to spend more time at home with her family.
Now she’s making the decision to juggle both jobs seem like a shrewd move.
“I love being a mom; it’s the greatest thing in the world,” she said after following a 9-under 62 with a  solid 69 on Friday to maintain a three-shot lead through 36 holes at the Marathon Classic.
“It’s hard for me when I have to choose. So I made a list. My family is first, and then golf comes second and we work everything out in between.”
Chasing her first win since 2002, Diaz is at 11-under 131, three shots ahead of Lee-Anne Pace and Lydia Ko.
Diaz led by four shots over Pace and Austin Ernst after the first round.

HOYLAKE, England (AP) — As his tee shot curled farther and farther away from the 17th fairway, heading toward all sorts of trouble, Tiger Woods simply stuffed his club in the bag.
He appeared to mumble something to himself, but that was about it.
No fiery outburst. No course language. No complaints about someone talking too loud, or being on the phone, or snapping a picture.
Shoulders slumping, Woods looked as though he had accepted his fate.
There won’t be a 15th major championship.
Not at this British Open.
Woods needed a birdie at the final hole — his only one of the day — just to make the cut. He walked off the 18th with a 5-over 77, his worst Open round since that stormy day at Muirfield in 2002, and headed to the weekend a staggering 14 shots behind the leader, Rory McIlroy.
“Not very good,” Woods said.

ACLEVELAND (AP) — LeBron James has to make another big decision.
The NBA superstar turned to social media Friday to help him choose which number he’ll wear next season with the Cavaliers. James wrote “6 or 23....” on his Twitter account and posted photos on Instagram of him wearing No. 6 and No. 23 wine and gold Cavs jerseys.
James wore No. 6 during his four seasons with Miami and also on the U.S. Olympic team. He used No. 23 in high school and during seven seasons in Cleveland.
James has had the top-selling jersey in the NBA six times during his career.

Watson makes cut at British Open at age of 64 PDF Print E-mail

HOYLAKE, England (AP) — The ovations from the packed galleries remain as warm as ever for Tom Watson at the British Open. His scoring continues to be just as impressive, too.
The 64-year-old Watson extended his record of being the oldest man to make the cut at the game’s oldest major when he shot a 1-over 73 on Friday. That put him at 2-over 146, just on the cut line.
“Let’s see what happens on the weekend,” the five-time British Open winner said, with that glint in his eye. “See if the old guy can maybe get it rolling a little bit.”
Playing a brand of “old man’s golf,” as he put it, Watson outlasted Masters champion Bubba Watson as well as Webb Simpson, Patrick Reed and Harris English — three guys looking to make the U.S. Ryder Cup team captained by Watson.
The way Watson has been hitting the ball this week, he wouldn’t look out of place on the team at Gleneagles in September.
“I’m thinking about picking the captain,” he said, laughing.
He needed a par 5 at No. 18 to stay at Hoylake for another two days and, to the delight of the spectators filling the horseshoe stand around the green, he avoided trouble and made it with ease.
“It was pretty special playing with Tom, and the reception he got,” Jim Furyk said. “And to watch him grind it out and make a birdie on the way in and make the cut was pretty cool.
