    BMW PGA ChampionshipBy Tony Jimenez VIRGINIA WATER, England (Reuters) - Francesco Molinari recovered from a shaky start to maintain his lead at the BMW PGA Championship on Friday while title holder Rory McIlroy missed the cut for only the third time in 45 events. McIlroy's back-nine 42 was riddled with errors and a miserable three-putt effort from 20 feet at the last hole meant he plunged to a six-over 78 and a five-over tally of 149. Italian Molinari began the second round with a two-stroke cushion over the rest of the field but his chipping was not up to scratch early on and it led to bogeys at the first and third.

    BMW PGA ChampionshipBy Tony Jimenez VIRGINIA WATER, England (Reuters) - World number one Rory McIlroy suggested he was "probably in need of a rest" after missing the cut by ballooning to a six-over-par 78 in the second round of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth on Friday. The title holder frittered away stroke after stroke at the European Tour's flagship event and his five-over total of 149 meant he missed the cut by a considerable margin. McIlroy is in the middle of an untypically busy schedule of five tournaments in a row that will end with the Irish Open event he hosts at Royal County Down next week.

    (Reuters) - Milwaukee Brewers reliever Will Smith received an eight-game suspension from Major League Baseball on Friday for having an unauthorized substance on his arm in Thursday's 10-1 loss to the Braves, but will file an appeal. The left-hander was ejected after the umpire, responding to a complaint by Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez, found a glistening mixture of rosin and sunscreen on Smith's right arm after he took the mound in the bottom of the seventh inning. Smith said he applied the substance while warming up in the bullpen to get a better grip on the ball and forgot to wipe it off before entering the game.
