Why Usain Bolt is 'extremely disappointed'

From Comcast SportsNet Monday, August 29, 2011
DAEGU, South Korea (AP) -- Usain Bolt says he's "extremely disappointed" that he false-started at the world championships, losing his 100 meters sprint title but the world's fastest man adds that he now wants to "move on". Bolt released a statement Monday via his agent a day after his disqualification for jumping the gun in the 100 meters final. He said he is refocusing on the 200, his favorite event, and the sprint relays later this week. Bolt said he worked very hard to prepare for the championships in Daegu, South Korea, felt "great" in the earlier rounds and "was ready to run fast in the final." But he added that "there is no point to dwell on the past." He congratulated teammate Yohan Blake for winning in his absence.

Red Sox take weekend series against Cubs with 6-2 victory

BOSTON - Marco Hernandez scored the go-ahead run on Pedro Strop's wild pitch in Boston's four-run eighth inning, helping the Red Sox beat the sloppy Chicago Cubs 6-2 on Sunday night.

The Red Sox took two of three in the lively weekend series that featured a strong showing for Cubs fans, chants in support of each side and the World Series trophies that ended long title droughts for the once-frustrated franchises.

Hanley Ramirez hit a two-run homer for Boston, and the Red Sox got two more runs on shortstop Addison Russell's throwing error in the eighth.

Kris Bryant hit a solo homer for Chicago, extending his hitting streak to 11 games. The Cubs closed a nine-game road trip at 5-4.
