GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Tiger Woods owns a share of the lead through two rounds of the Wyndham Championship as he tries to qualify for the FedEx playoffs that begin next week. Woods followed Thursday's 64 with a 5-under 65 to join Tom Hoge (HOH'-gee) at 11-under. Woods made his move up the leaderboard on the back nine, with birdies on Nos. 12 and 13 before an eagle on the par-5 15th for a share of the lead.

DENVER (AP) — Mets hurler Matt Harvey is going to skip his next scheduled start Sunday in Colorado. The decision is a planned move by New York in order to help limit the right-hander's innings in his first season back from Tommy John surgery. Mets manager Terry Collins said right-handed reliever Logan Verrett instead will get the ball.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The San Francisco Giants have sent rookie pitcher Chris Heston to Triple-A Sacramento in an effort to give him a small break before the playoff push in September. The 27-year-old Heston is 11-7 with a 3.34 ERA and one no-hitter this season, but he has had trouble going deep into games recently. He will return to the Giants when rosters expand on Sept. 1.

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Denny Hamlin will start from the pole for tonight's Sprint Cup race at Bristol Motor Speedway. Hamlin had a final qualifying lap of 131.407 mph to edge Kyle Busch and break the mark of 131.362 mph set last August by Kevin Harvick. Carl Edwards and David Ragan will make up the second row for the start of the race, just ahead of Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski (kehs-LOW'-skee).

UNDATED (AP) — NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly says Las Vegas and Quebec City have advanced to the third and potentially final stage to land expansion franchises. The third stage is scheduled to end next month, and a person familiar with the process says that barring setbacks, it would then be up to the league to award expansion franchises.
