SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks have sent infielder Brandon Drury to the New York Yankees and received outfielder Steven Souza Jr. from the Tampa Bay Rays in a three-team trade that includes five players plus two to be named later. The deal was announced one day after former Diamondbacks outfielder J.D. Martinez agreed to a $110 million, five-year contract with Boston, pending a physical.
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Defenseman Scott Harrington broke a second-period tie with his second goal of the season and the slumping Columbus Blue Jackets snapped a three-game losing streak and ended the New Jersey Devils' four-game winning streak with a 2-1 decision on Tuesday night. Boone Jenner also scored as the Blue Jackets moved into the second wild-card position in the Eastern Conference with 65 points, one ahead of Carolina and the Islanders.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - C.J. Jackson scored 18 points to help No. 16 Ohio State rout Rutgers 79-52. Kaleb Wesson added 14, and Kam Williams, playing his last home game, had 13 as the Buckeyes (23-7, 14-3 Big Ten) got a feel-good win on senior night, coming on the heels of tough road losses to Penn State and Michigan that dropped them out of first place in the conference.
NEW YORK (AP) - The Rangers have traded defenseman Nick Holden to the Boston Bruins for a minor league defenseman and a third-round pick in the 2018 draft. Defenseman Rob O'Gara went to New York in deal with Boston, which entered the day in a tight race with Tampa Bay for first place in the Atlantic Division.
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Retief Goosen one-putted the last six holes to win his second U.S. Open title at Shinnecock Hills in 2004. He has not been back to the storied club on Long Island since that day, and he probably won't go back unless he qualifies. Goosen says he has asked for an exemption but doesn't expect another one.
