Betances costs Yankees in 7-6 loss to Blue Jays

NEW YORK—Dellin Betances threw a full-count breaking ball with no bite to Russell Martin that sailed well high and outside, forcing in the go-ahead run with his fourth walk of the eighth inning.

“It feels like an elongated halftime for us to lick our wounds and get back at it.”

This year, though, Woods will miss the trophy presentations at both of the PGA Tour events that benefit his foundation.
