Cabrera almost pulled out his third Major title, but his birdie try on the first extra hole just missed the cup. It’s the first time an Australian has won the Masters.</p> Mon, 15 Apr 2013 11:05:47 +0000 Jaired Crofut 62227 at http://wamc.org WAMC Morning Edition Sports Update WAMC Morning Edition Sports Update http://wamc.org/post/wamc-morning-edition-sports-update-62 <p>In baseball, Baltimore beat the Red Sox 8-5 last night.
