The Mid-Missouri Mavericks beat the Springfield/Ozark Ducks 4-3 on Sunday at Price Cutter Park in Ozark.

The Mavs (18-48) scored three runs in the ninth inning, then held off the Ducks (36-31), who scored twice in the bottom of the inning.

Mavs pitcher Jason Wiedmeyer gave up three hits and one run in 7 2/3 innings. Justin Craker pitched the ninth and gave up two hits.

UTLEY CLASSIC: The 14th Stan Utley-Rainbow House Golf Classic starts at 8 a.m. today at the Country Club of Missouri.

The event is a chance for professional golfers, chosen by PGA pro Stan Utley, to raise money for the Rainbow House in Columbia, an emergency shelter for abused and neglected children.

BUICK OPEN: Vijay Singh outlasted John Daly with a 5-under 67 to win with a 23-under 265 for his fourth victory of the year and 19th of his career.

Daly, vying for a second win in one year for the first time, finished a stroke back after shooting a 66 and bogeying the 18th hole.

Tiger Woods started the day three strokes behind Singh, and pulled within a stroke while shooting a 66. He finished at 21 under, two strokes off behind the winner and tied with Carlos Franco (67) for third.

Defending champion Jim Furyk, who shared the second-round lead with Singh, finished tied for sixth at 17 under after shooting a 68 on Sunday.

Singh’s bogey at 18 created an opportunity for Daly to force a playoff, but Daly was unable to take advantage of the break.

Singh is the third two-time Buick Open champ, and the first since Julius Boros won at Warwick Hills a second time in 1967.

WOMEN’S BRITISH OPEN: Karen Stupples won her first major title with a record-tying 19-under 269, while defending champion Annika Sorenstam’s bid to become the second woman to win all four majors back-to-back ended in a tie for 13th.
