    James Johnson has been a busy man the last few months as he’s prepared for the Summer Olympics in London.

    But when Rod Davis approached him about coming to Kentucky for a speaking engagement, Johnson jumped at the opportunity. He just thought the ceremony would take place in Lexington, where he wrestled for four years at the University of Kentucky.

    Still, when Davis told him he’d be traveling to Elizabethtown, the connection wasn’t lost on Johnson.

    After playing 104 holes of golf in the heat the last three days, Garrett Hinton admitted he’s running more on adrenaline than energy entering today’s 18-hole final against Jantzen Latham in the KGA Amateur Match Play Championship at the par-72, 7,157-yard Hunting Creek Country Club in Prospect.

    Right-handed pitcher Blake Beavan of Triple-A Tacoma was recalled Tuesday by Seattle Mariners executive vice president/general manager of baseball operations Jack Zduriencik. The move was made in enough time to allow Beavan to start Tuesday evening’s road game against the Kansas City Royals.

    To make room on their 25-man roster, the Mariners optioned right-handed reliever Steve Delabar to Tacoma.
