LEADING OFF

PHOTOPhotograph by Robert BeckA PINE MESS Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland found himself in the woods on the 10th hole during his epic meltdown at the Masters on Sunday (POINT AFTER, page 70). Leading by four strokes after three rounds, McIlroy shot an eight-over-par 80—aided by a triple-bogey 7 on 10—to finish at 284, in a tie for 15th place. South Africa's Charl Schwartzel birdied the final four holes to finish with a 14-under 274 and win his first green jacket by two strokes (page 32).PHOTOPhotograph by Chuck SolomonSOCK IT TO HIM Umpire Dan Iassogna punched out Red Sox pinch runner Darnell McDonald for the final out in a 1--0 loss to the Indians last Thursday in Cleveland. A two-out infield shot by Boston's J.D. Drew had caromed off pitcher Chris Perez; third baseman Adam Everett picked up the ball and threw to Orlando Cabrera at second to nail McDonald, who had overrun the bag.PHOTOPhotograph by David E. KluthoBLONDS ON BLONDS Senior forward Kyle Schmidt lay under a pile of Minnesota-Duluth teammates after his overtime goal gave them a 3--2 victory over Michigan in the NCAA Division I hockey championship game in St. Paul last Saturday (page 18). The Bulldogs had dyed their hair for the Frozen Four in a show of unity, but Schmidt bleached only his tips because he was scheduled to be married after the tournament.
