Weir is pitching well for Pads’ rookie team
Kokomo High School product T.J. Weir continues to pitch well for the San Diego Padres’ team in the Arizona Rookie League.
Weir pitched 1.2 scoreless innings in a relief performance against the Arizona League A’s on Saturday night. He held the A’s to no hits, struck out two and walked none. He was a bright spot in an otherwise tough night for the Padres — the A’s won 13-1.

The former Kat standout has pitched 47.2 innings over 27 appearances, all out of the bullpen. He has 48 strikeouts and 20 walks.
• Matt Reida (Western) is batting .231 for the Tampa Bay Rays’ team in the Gulf Coast League. The GCL is a rookie league. Reida is 6 for 26 at the plate — 5 for 17 vs. right-handed pitchers. He has driven in three runs and scored three runs. He has a .333 on-base percentage.
Cabrera garners victory in Greenbrier Classic
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — Angel Cabrera won the Greenbrier Classic on Sunday for his first non-major victory on the PGA Tour, closing with his second straight 6-under 64 for a two-stroke victory over George McNeill.
Cabrera, the 44-year-old Argentine whose only other PGA Tour victories came in the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters, built a three-shot lead before making things interesting with a pair of late bogeys. He finished at 16-under 264 at Old White TPC.
