3 tied for lead in Southern Junior

GREENSBORO, Ga. (AP) - Three players were tied for the lead with 3-under-par 69s after the first round of the Southern Junior Golf Championship at the Reynolds Landing course.

Drew Czuchry of Auburn, Ga. was a shot back at 70.

Angels' Torii Hunter out of the lineup after slamming into outfield wall Monday night

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Center fielder Torii Hunter was held out of the Los Angeles Angels' lineup last night, a day after he bruised his ribs crashing into the outfield wall.

The Pine Bluff native said Tuesday he hopes to return for Los Angeles' interleague series finale against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night. He received treatment for the injury and planned to take it easy.

Hunter, who turns 34 next month, bruised his right ribcage area on the back side when he hit the wall trying to catch a double by Bengie Molina in the fourth inning of the Angels' 9-7 victory over the Giants on Monday night. Hunter left the game then underwent X-rays on his right ribcage at the ballpark. Results were normal.

Ackley sets CWS career hits mark, Tar Heels rough up Southern Miss pitching in 11-4 victory

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Dustin Ackley went 5 for 6 and became the College World Series' career hits leader, and North Carolina tied a CWS single-game record with 23 hits in an 11-4 victory over Southern Mississippi on Tuesday.

The Tar Heels (48-17), who will play Thursday against the winner of Tuesday night's Texas-Arizona State game, eliminated the Golden Eagles (40-26) and sent coach Corky Palmer into retirement.

Ackley has 27 hits in 14 CWS games. The No. 2 overall draft pick by the Seattle Mariners, bidding to become the second player to have six hits in a CWS game, flew out in his final at-bat.

Romo-to-Roy still work in progress for Cowboys

CARROLLTON, Texas (AP) - Dallas receiver Roy Williams figures it's pointless to watch film from his 10 games with the Cowboys last season.

There's nothing Williams really wants to see.

But with Terrell (TER'-el) Owens cut, then picked up by Buffalo -- Williams now gets his chance to be a top receiver for Dallas.

The Cowboys acquired Williams in the middle of last season from struggling Detroit, giving up first- and third-round draft picks and a $45 million contract extension through 2013.

Williams says the pressure is on him -- and that's how he wants it to be.

The offseason work began in February, a month before Owens was released, when Williams started running routes and catching passes from Tony Romo.

The final organized team workouts are at this week's minicamp until training camp opens in late July in San Antonio.
