VIRGINIA WATER, England -- Rory McIlroy could only manage a disappointing 2 over par 74, while defending champion and former No. 1 Luke Donald slumped to a 78 on a rain-affected first round of the BMW PGA Championship on Thursday. South Africas James Kingston led the field after finishing with a 6 under 66 before play was interrupted by a 90-minute rain delay during the afternoon. Later, five groups were yet to finish as darkness fell and play was suspended. Kingston had a one-stroke lead over Finlands Mikko Ilonen, with Scotlands Scott Henry and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano of Spain tied for a share of third place after both carded 68s. McIlroy, whose total included 33 putts, said: "I feel as though I am playing well enough, but it is just not being reflected on my score card. I played the first 12 holes really not missing a shot, but I just feel at the minute I am not getting that much out of my rounds." The Northern Irishman, who played in the company of his Ryder Cup winning teammates Graeme McDowell and Paul Lawrie, was 3 under after 12 holes before carding three bogeys in succession from the 13th. The double Major winner then pared the 16th, but dropped further shots at 17 and 18. "Im not sure what the problem is because, as I said, the first 12 holes was really good golf and very solid, but I just got on a run of bogeys and couldnt get off it," McIlroy said. His effort continues a disappointing first-day trend at the Tours flagship event. He shot a 74 on day one of the tournament last year, a 76 the year before, and a 74 on the opening day of the 2010 BMW PGA Championship. Also signing for a 74 was fellow U.S. Open winner and Northern Irishman, Graeme McDowell, who ended with an 18th hole double bogey -- having taken a triple bogey at the same hole on day one of the 2012 event. Donald produced just one birdie, but also had five bogeys and a double bogey as he recorded his poorest round at Wentworth since a 74 on the first day of the event in 2009. "It is disappointing to be this far back after one round but then thats just golf, again," Donald said. "Today was quite different to how the course has played in the past but I just didnt do very well in adjusting." Kingston, ranked 297th and playing on a sponsors invitation, capped his round with four birdies over his closing seven holes. It was his lowest Wentworth score by one stroke after shooting 67 twice on his debut in 2003. "Receiving an invitation into this event was nice, and what a great feeling to be back here," he said. "I played nicely and got off to a decent start and really made the putts when I needed to." Ilonen marked his 10th appearance at Wentworth with a tournament-best round of 67, having finished runner-up in his last event, the Volvo China Open. "Ive had good form this year but then Wentworth has not been the best of places for me," Ilonen said. Among the 15 players who will complete their rounds on Friday morning is Austrias Martin Wiegele, the last player to tee off. He was 4 under with still five holes to play.

TORONTO -- The Houston Astros havent been giving Collin McHugh much run support in recent starts.It was the same story Saturday against Blue Jays right-hander Aaron Sanchez.Russell Martin hit a go-ahead three-run homer in the sixth inning, Sanchez pitched seven innings to get his first win in three starts and Toronto beat the Astros 4-2, stopping Houstons winning streak at four.McHugh (7-10) allowed three runs and five hits in 5 1/3 innings to lose his fourth straight start, with two of those losses coming against the Blue Jays.Theres really no give in that lineup, McHugh said.McHugh has held opponents to three runs or fewer in 10 of his past 11 outings but his 10 losses are a career-high.He didnt quite have the finish on his pitches, manager A.J. Hinch said. As his outing went he was battling himself a little bit.The Astros have been held to two runs or fewer in three of McHughs streak of four losses. Houston is 10-43 this season when it scores less than four runs.Houstons Jose Altuve had two hits, a double and a triple, giving him 997 for his career.Josh Donaldson also homered for the Blue Jays, who have won seven of nine meetings with the Astros.Sanchez (12-2) gave up two runs and three hits in a shaky first, then shut Houston down over the next six frames for his first win since July 25 against San Diego. He allowed two runs and five hits.It seemed like they were just going to jump on the heater early in counts, Martin said. We kind of had to mix it up a little bit, throw some more breaking balls and some off-speed. He did that.Sanchez lowered his ERA to 2.84, second in the American League to Kansas Citys Danny Duffy (2.82).Jason Grilli pitched the eighth and Roberto Osuna finished for his 26th save.Carlos Correa hit a two-run double in the first as the Astros had three straight opposite-field hits.They slapped three balls to right field in a hurry, Sanchez said. I just knew something had to change there.Donaldsoon cut the deficit in half with a solo homer off McHugh in the bottom of the first, his 28th.ddddddddddddHouston missed a chance to add to its lead in the second, when A.J. Reed led off with a double. Third base umpire Jeff Nelson ruled that Tony Kemps one-out liner had landed fair, but Toronto challenged and the call was overturned after video review. Kemp grounded out and George Springer struck out to end the threat.Replay helps us more than it hurts us but thats where I wish they would have taken away replay for a day, Hinch said.McHugh left after back-to-back singles by Edwin Encarnacion and Michael Saunders in the fifth. James Hoyt came on in relief and got Troy Tulowitzki to ground out before Martin homered, his ninth.The game turned on a dime with one swing, Hinch said. (Hoyt) made one bad pitch and it cost us three runs.Hoyt fell behind 3-0 but battled back to 3-2 before Martin homered on a slider.I was confident in the pitch Hoyt said. Just maybe a little up.BRUSH WITH THE LAWWhile chasing Josh Donaldsons foul pop up in the third, Houston 1B Reed collided with a female police officer sitting by the stands, knocking her to the ground. Neither Reed nor the police officer was injured, and both laughed off the incident.ROAD WARRIORAltuve has reached safely in 43 straight road games, tying Jeff Bagwell for the second-longest streak in team history.
