U.S. men's national team captain and Tottenham Hotspur forward Clint Dempsey will return to Major League Soccer with the Seattle Sounders. After a second-round 61, Tiger Woods built a seven-shot lead at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio. The 9-under 61 equaled Woods' best round on Tour and tied the course record he set at Firestone in 2000. A defiant Alex Rodriguez homered in a minor league rehab game in Trenton, NJ while Major League Baseball is preparing a lengthy suspension for the Yankee All-Star for his involvement in a recent steroid scandal. "There are a lot of layers," he said after the game "I will say this: There is more than one party that benefits from me not ever stepping back on the field. And that's not my teammates and it's not the Yankee fans."
