AUGUSTA, Ga. - The world hasn't seen much of Tiger Woods in the last year or so. And when we did, the snapshots weren't exactly tasty treats. If he wasn't bending over with back issues or limping because of knee problems, he was probably flubbing up some chip shots or hitting another drive into the next area code. It happens, even to the once-mightiest. Yesterday he made his first trip to the interview room at Augusta National in 2 years. He's played 47 holes this season.

CSX Corp. says the Jan. 20 derailment of a crude-oil train on a Schuylkill bridge was caused by a rail that shifted because it had been improperly secured by workers who had earlier done maintenance on the line. The crew, which was replacing timber cross ties on the tracks, had not followed CSX protocols when they temporarily secured the rail to the ties, said Melanie Cost, a company spokeswoman. Seven rail cars, including six tankers containing crude oil, left the tracks. There were no leaks and no structural damage to the Schuylkill Arsenal bridge, CSX said.

The only hit against Tillman (7-2) was an infield dribbler by Dayan Viciedo in the fifth inning that shortstop J.J. Hardy couldn't snag with an attempted barehanded pickup.

SAN FRANCISCO - Brian Wilson has no regrets about how many times he pitched during the San Francisco Giants' improbable 2010 World Series title run. Nor about how he stayed on the mound at Colorado last week despite ligament damage in his arm. "Absolutely not," Wilson said. "That's how I play baseball. Push it to the limits. " Wilson has now reached his limit. San Francisco's bearded and boisterous closer said before Sunday's series finale against Pittsburgh that he probably will have elbow-reconstruction surgery, ending his season after only 56 pitches, two appearances and one save.

Bob Clarke strongly defended Steve Downie in an interview with the Sports Network of Canada, saying he "loved it" when the Flyers rookie punched Toronto's Jason Blake in a game Saturday. "When he went after Blake, I loved it," said Clarke, the Flyers' senior vice president, on TSN's Off the Record last night. Downie was suspended for the season's first 20 games after a blind-side hit to the head of Ottawa's Dean McAmmond in a preseason game in September. At the time, Blake was quoted as saying the suspension should have been for the entire season.
