Teen star still may seek exemption

Brooke Henderson’s first LPGA Tour win didn’t stop her from having to play golf on Mondays.

Henderson completed an eight-stroke victory Sunday at the $1.3-million (U.S.) Cambia Portland Classic to become the first Canadian to win an LPGA event since Charlottetown’s Lorie Kane in 2001.

She also was the Tour’s third-youngest champion ever at 17 years 11 months, and six days.

Jays able to avert sweep

TORONTO—With such a thin line between being on the N.Y. Yankees’ heels and getting swept at home, the Toronto Blue Jays didn’t hesitate and handed the ball to their fifth starter with the 5.26 ERA.

Drew Hutchison took it, threw a gem, and helped the Jays beat the Yankees 3-1 yesterday afternoon at Rogers Centre to move to a half-game back in the AL East.
