Triggs earns first win as Athletics power past Cardinals 7-4


August 28th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Rookie Andrew Triggs earned his first win and Stephen Vogt and Khris Davis homered to lead the Oakland Athletics to a 7-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday. Triggs (1-1) allowed three runs on four hits, walked none and struck out eight in six innings.

Jaime Garcia (10-10) gave up a three-run homer to Vogt with two out in the third and a two-run shot to Davis, his 34th, with two out in the first. Garcia has allowed seven homers in his past three starts after giving up six in his first 13 starts.

Matt Carpenter doubled twice, homered and scored the Cardinals’ first three runs. His homer in the third extended the Cardinals’ streak to 17 games with a homer, matching their season best.

Chiefs safety Eric Berry signs franchise tender


August 28th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs safety Eric Berry signed his franchise tender and reported to camp Sunday, though he is almost certain to miss Kansas City’s preseason finale against Green Bay this week. Berry was given the franchise tag early in the offseason but had not signed the deal, which means he could skip all of training camp without being fined. The deal will pay him just over $10.8 million this season, making him the league’s highest-paid safety. Kansas City plays its first regular-season game Sept. 11 against San Diego.

Berry played in every game last season, less than a year after he was diagnosed with cancer. He made 55 tackles, a pair of interceptions and resumed his role as the heart and soul of the defense.

Athletics rally for 2 runs in 8th, edge Cardinals 3-2


August 28th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Khris Davis hustled home on an infield grounder in the eighth inning and the Oakland Athletics rallied for two runs, beating the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 Saturday night. St. Louis starter Mike Leake was scratched because he was still recovering from having shingles. The Cardinals fell to 1-8 in interleague games at Busch Stadium this season.

Oakland trailed 2-1 in the eighth when Davis singled with one out against Matt Bowman (2-5) and Ryon Healy doubled, extending the longest active hitting streak in the majors to 13 games. Seung Hwan Oh relieved and Max Muncy hit a grounder that Brandon Moss stopped with a dive, but Davis easily beat the throw to score the tying run. Brett Eibner followed with a sacrifice fly.

A’s starter Zach Neal pitched a career-best six innings. Oakland pitchers held the Cardinals without a hit after the fourth inning, retiring the last 17 batters. Daniel Coulombe (2-1) and Liam Hendriks combined for two perfect innings to set up Ryan Madson, who pitched a perfect ninth for his 26th save.

Smith, Chiefs look sharp in 23-7 victory over Bears


August 27th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Alex Smith was sharp in leading three scoring drives in the first half and the Kansas City Chiefs got a 23-7 preseason victory over the Chicago Bears on Saturday. Smith completed 20 of 30 passes for 181 yards before Nick Foles came in to start the third quarter. The defense strangled Chicago’s offense, and the Chiefs (1-2) came away with the win after dropping their first two exhibitions.

Kansas City has one more tuneup against Green Bay before opening against San Diego on Sept. 11. But in what is generally the final dress rehearsal for the starters, the Chiefs dominated.  They got two second-quarter field goals from Cairo Santos and a 1-yard touchdown run by Spencer Ware in the closing seconds of the half to take a 13-0 lead. But the score didn’t reflect just how lopsided the game was.

The Chiefs outgained the Bears 239-20 in the half, had 16 first downs compared to Chicago’s two and dominated time of possession 21:54 to 8:06. Kansas City had 177 yards passing compared to minus-7 for the Bears through the first two quarters.

Audubon holds off Exira-EHK to get first 8-Man Football win


August 27th, 2016 by Chris Parks

The Audubon Wheelers and Exira-EHK Spartans battled it out to the bitter end in Exira on Friday night. Ultimately the Wheelers will able to hang on to the lead they had for a majority of the game and get their first 8-Man Football win 38-32.

The Wheelers are transitioning this season from 11-man to 8-man football and they got a great early test from the Spartans.  Coach Sean Birks said he wasn’t sure what to expect but was proud of the way his team learned throughout the game.

The Spartans got off to an early 7-0 lead on the first possession of the game but Audubon answered back with a score on their first offensive possession.  The Wheelers took the lead for good on the first play of the second quarter as Quarterback Tyler Reibhoff scampered in on a 13-yard touchdown run to make it 12-7.  The Wheelers would lead 24-7 at half but Exira-EHK used their strong depth to push back within a score twice in the second half.  Coach Birks liked the way the Wheelers responded to adversity when the Spartans rallied back.

Exira-EHK scored the final points of the game on a 3 yard Drew Buckholdt touchdown run with 4:01 remaining that made it a 38-32 ballgame.  The Wheelers were able to churn out three first downs on their final possession to milk the clock dry and seal the win.  Wheeler Receiver Josh Lange said it was good to get a win against a strong Spartan squad.
