Davis High graduate Nick Watney birdied the final two holes on Sunday to finish the PGA Championship with a 1-over 72. It was the first time all weekend that the former Blue Devil went over par as he ended in a tie for 33rd place.
The final round featured an exciting finish as Rory McIlroy struggled early in the day, then stormed back to capture the title at 16-under.
McIlroy edged out Phil Mickelson (-15) just as darkness fell on the Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky.
The Sacramento River Cats could not withstand an offensive explosion in Reno on Monday, dropping the season finale, 17-4 at Aces Ballpark.
After the Aces (66-57) scored in the first inning, the Cats (69-54) tied the game in the top of the second on a Luis Martinez RBI single. Reno, however, took control of the game from there, taking a 17-2 lead before Sacramento plated two in the top of the ninth.
Those runs came on Colin Walsh’s RBI single.
Walsh, an infielder, was coming off of a one-inning pitching stint in the seventh. Another infielder, Alden Carrithers, tossed a scoreless eighth.
The River Cats are back at Raley Field on Tuesday to begin an eight-game homestand with a 7:05 p.m. contest against Colorado Springs.
