Acquired a day earlier in a trade with the Chicago White Sox, Dunn became the 12th player in Oakland history to homer in his first at-bat with the team. His drive was a welcome sight for a team that just got swept in a four-game series by the AL West-leading Los Angeles Angels and was shut out for 29 straight innings. He provided a nice lift for an Oakland offense that has struggled since dealing Yoenis Cespedes to Boston for Jon Lester on July 31.

Picking the best of the worst for Ryder Cup (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: September 2, 2014, 6:06 pm]
Graeme McDowell saw this coming nine months ago when his thoughts turned to the Ryder Cup. Making the Ryder Cup team for either side is tougher than ever. Some were going to be at the mercy of European captain Paul McGinley. I would assume McGinley's wild cards are going to be very hotly contested.

'Lucky' McGinley picks Westwood, Poulter, Gallacher (Reuters) [Yahoo! Sports: September 2, 2014, 5:05 pm]
By Tony Jimenez LONDON (Reuters) - Paul McGinley called himself "a very lucky man" after Europe's Ryder Cup captain dipped into an overflowing selection box before opting for Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood and Stephen Gallacher as his wildcard picks on Tuesday. The trio join automatic qualifiers Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia, Martin Kaymer, Victor Dubuisson, Thomas Bjorn, Jamie Donaldson and Graeme McDowell in a 12-man team for the Sept. 26-28 matches against the United States.

Creating more playing opportunities on PGA Tour (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: September 2, 2014, 3:35 pm]
PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem is not inclined to make drastic changes next year that would create more starts for players who earn their cards through the Web.Com Tour Finals. The concern was that some players who were low on the priority ranking did not get to play enough tournaments. An internal document at the tour shows that players from No. 30 and lower on the list wound up playing about five fewer tournaments than the old system. ''One of the things we're concerned about is if a player who comes out at the bottom of the list off the Web.com, in some cases it's a player who since he was 8 years old wanted to be on the PGA Tour,'' Finchem said at The Barclays.

Jacklin thrilled rookie Gallacher proved him wrong (Reuters) [Yahoo! Sports: September 2, 2014, 1:55 pm]
By Tony Jimenez LONDON (Reuters) - Former captain Tony Jacklin is delighted Ryder Cup rookie Stephen Gallacher made him eat his words by securing a place in Europe's team for the showdown with the United States in Scotland this month. Jacklin, Europe's most successful skipper of all time having won two matches, tied one and lost one, told Reuters at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in May that he thought the 39-year-old Scot was "a bit iffy sometimes" and "a bit tender-minded". Gallacher came within a whisker of dislodging Graeme McDowell from the automatic nine Ryder Cup qualifiers and received his reward on Tuesday when he was picked by captain Paul McGinley as a wildcard choice along with Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood. I didn't mean it in any derogatory way and he has certainly proved he is made of the right stuff and I think he's capable of having a great Ryder Cup." Jacklin's comments provoked an angry response, especially among Gallacher's fellow countrymen, but the 70-year-old Englishman said perhaps it was the gee-up the triple European Tour winner needed.

Target man Poulter relishing Ryder Cup battle (Reuters) [Yahoo! Sports: September 2, 2014, 1:31 pm]
Ian Poulter is primed for the Americans who will be gunning for him in next month's Ryder Cup after being chosen as one of Europe captain Paul McGinley's three wildcards on Tuesday. The 38-year-old Englishman, whose pumped-up performance two years ago inspired Europe's "Miracle at Medinah" comeback win, admitted he will be a marked man at this year's event at Gleneagles, Scotland from Sept. 26-28. I'm going to be more than ready." Poulter, Lee Westwood and Stephen Gallacher were named by McGinley to join automatic qualifiers Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia, Martin Kaymer, Victor Dubuisson, Thomas Bjorn, Jamie Donaldson and Graeme McDowell in the 12-strong team.

The 16th-seeded Spaniard had a chance to serve out the first set and had two set points in the third, but Wawrinka rallied both times, and then dominated the final set. ''That's why I'm normally so strong, because I know that I have (a) few lives,'' Wawrinka said.

The crumbling miniature theater is inscribed with the words "glory, wealth, wisdom, victory, triumph, hero, labor" — and it is where visiting Olympic officials planted an olive sapling that would bear their names for posterity.
