LONDON/MOSCOW, June 4 (Reuters) - In a bid to free Rusal from U.S. sanctions, the independent directors of the company controlling Russia's biggest aluminium producer have hired Rothschild to advise on the sale of billionaire Oleg Deripaska's stake, a source said.

"He was perhaps best known for his win at the 1977 U.S. Open, where he received a death threat during the round, but continued on and ultimately captured the title," Hall of Fame President Jack Peter said on the shrine's website on Wednesday.

Under a plan devised by En+ chairman Greg Barker, Deripaska hopes to persuade the United States to ease sanctions on his companies by scaling back his own involvement in them, an option initially suggested by Washington.

U.S. banks worked on the En+ initial public offering in November, but since the sanctions, sources have said some of them have taken a step back for fear of repercussions. (Reporting by Dasha Afanasieva and Katya Golubkova Editing by Alexander Smith)

Last week Reuters reported En+ is hoping to present a plan to the Treasury detailing how the stake will be reduced and who the new directors could be in the summer. The proposal will be contingent on sanctions being lifted.

Have you ever thought of learning Spanish while working for a few months in Spain? It is possible to work part-time and have the rest of the day free for studying Spanish. Besides attending classes, you can join one of the work programmes organised between different companies and Universities. The best thing to do is to obtain the necessary information first from the administrative departments of the different centres where there are work pools and the possibility of paid internships. You will also be told whether or not you need a visa and how to get one if that is the case.

"En+ is currently facing unprecedented and unforeseen challenges and I have taken the decision to step down from the company for the sake of its future prosperity," Sokov, who has now relinquished all roles and responsibilities relating to the group, said in a statement.

Green was a dominant force during the 1970s and 1980s when he won 19 times on the PGA Tour, including at the 1977 U.S. Open and 1985 PGA Championship, and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2007.

Deripaska holds a 66 percent stake in En+, the vehicle through which he exercises control over Rusal, one of the world´s biggest aluminum producers, among other businesses. (Writing by Polina Ivanova; editing by Jason Neely and Adrian Croft)

Manuel Margot gave the Padres a 3-0 lead in the fifth with a three-run homer. After the Rangers scored in the bottom of the fifth on a RBI single by Andrus, Jose Pirela returned the Padres to a three-run lead with a homer opening the top of the sixth.

But four straight Padres reached base against Harvey to open the second. Franmil Reyes and Freddy Galvis singled, and A.J. Ellis drew a walk to load the bases. Manuel Margot followed with a two-run double, and Ellis scored on Lauer's sacrifice fly to right for his first major league RBI. Jankowski then singled home Margot.

LONDON, June 1 (Reuters) - The London Stock Exchange said on Friday that it would cancel plans to suspend trading bitmex in global depositary receipts (GDRs) of En+, following a decision by the U.S. Treasury Department to give U.S. investors more time to divest from the company which is affected by sanctions against Russia.

The appointment of financial advisory firm Rothschild marks a step forward days after the Treasury extended the deadline for investors to divest holdings in companies covered by U.S. sanctions, including En+ and Rusal, buying En+ Chairman Greg Barker time to present concrete proposals.

In his quest to save En+ from sanctions, Barker has negotiated Derispaska's resignation from the board. The company's president Maxim Sokov also quit on Monday, hoping his resignation will help build the case for scrapping sanctions.

Carlos Correa hit a two-run homer in the first inning, and the Houston Astros scored twice on infield grounders in the fourth en route to a 4-2 win over the visiting Boston Red Sox on Thursday at Minute Maid Park.

What initially appeared to be a bad-luck bounce for the Astros proved inconsequential in the fourth inning.

Davis, likely to score from first base on the play, instead remained at third with one out and the bottom of the order up for Houston.
