Tiger Woods' mother-in-law taken from his house to hospital with stomach pains

Firefighters responding to a medical call went to Tiger Woods' home near Orlando early Tuesday and took his mother-in-law to a hospital.

Health Central Hospital spokesman Dan Yates told the Associated Press that Barbro Holmberg was admitted early Tuesday suffering from stomach pain. She is the mother of Woods' wife, Elin. She was listed in stable condition.

Health Central is the same hospital where Woods was treated after he crashed his sport utility vehicle outside his home last month.

Media attention has been focused on the world's No. 1 golfer since he hit a hydrant and a tree about 2:25 a.m. on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

The Orlando Sentinel reported that firefighters were called to the home at 2:36 a.m.

Spokeswoman Genevieve Latham first said no one was transported, but she later corrected that.

"The command center made an error," Latham told the Sentinel. "The information was put in backward. Rescue crews did transport a patient to the hospital."

A Cadillac Escalade, similar to the vehicle Woods crashed, showed up at the same hospital in Ocoee shortly after the 911 call to Woods' home, reportedly with an unidentified blond woman behind the wheel, Bay News 9 reported.

Video showed a blond woman being taken into the hospital on a stretcher.

So as the game headed toward the ninth, there was no doubt in Cash's mind that sending Cobb back to the mound was …

    Rays starter Alex Cobb can hardly believe what just happened as he leaves the game in the ninth after allowing a leadoff double then a tying two-run homer to the Rangers’ Shin-Soo Choo.

He had two hits Wednesday in Oakland and three hits Friday against the Rangers. Okay, one was an infield hit that bounced high in front of the plate, but the other was a long home run to …
