Royals beat the Cardinals 4-2; Cards’ Mgr. Metheny ejected during the game

Sports

July 1st, 2016 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Kendrys Morales homered and recorded his sixth straight multi-hit game to lead the Kansas City Royals to a 4-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night. Kansas City won for the fourth time in five games and took the two-city, four-game series three games to one. Brandon Moss and Jhonny Peralta homered for the Cardinals who have lost their last seven home games — their longest losing streak since Aug. 2-15, 1983. Wade Davis recorded his 19th save in 21 opportunities.

Morales, a designated hitter playing right field for the second straight night, doubled in the sixth inning off Mike Leake (5-6) to push the lead to 3-1. Morales, who went 3 for 4, has 16 hits in 24 at-bats over the six-game run. He went 12 for 16 in the series and started in the outfield for the first time since 2008. His six-game multi-hit streak ties him for the longest this season along with J.D. Martinez (Detroit), Jackie Bradley Jr. (Boston) and Xander Bogaerts (Boston).

***************

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Cardinals manager Mike Matheny was ejected from a game against Kansas City in the sixth inning on Thursday night. Matheny was tossed by home plate umpire Mike Everitt. It was Matheny’s first ejection this season. Matheny appeared upset after the Royals called for a replay on a play at first base. The original call was changed and overturned in the Royals favor.

Champion Chanticleers: Coastal Carolina defeats Arizona 4-3

Sports

June 30th, 2016 by Chris Parks

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – Coastal Carolina capitalized on two errors on the same play for four unearned runs in the sixth inning, and the Chanticleers won their first national championship in any sport with a 4-3 victory over Arizona in Game 3 of the College World Series finals on Thursday.

The Chanticleers (55-18) became the first program since Minnesota in 1956 to win the title in its first CWS appearance. Arizona (49-24) was trying for its second national title since 2012.

Andrew Beckwith (15-1), the national leader in wins, went 5 2/3 innings after pitching two complete games and picked up his third victory of the CWS. He was named the Most Outstanding Player.

Alex Cunningham earned his first save, striking out Ryan Haug with a full-count fastball to end the game after Arizona had pulled within a one in the bottom of the ninth.

Arizona’s Bobby Dalbec (11-6) also worked 5 2/3 innings, with all the runs coming against him. He struck out eight to increase his CWS total to 25 in 20 innings.

Bad weather forces CWS final to be postponed until today (Thursday)

Sports

June 30th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The College World Series championship game between Coastal Carolina and Arizona was postponed until today (Thursday), because of inclement weather in the Omaha area Wednesday night. The first pitch at TD Ameritrade Park is slated for 12:08-p.m. Central Time.

NCAA officials waited 2 hours, 23 minutes after the scheduled start time to postpone the game. More rain and lightning were forecast for the area in the early morning hours, meaning a delay would have been likely.

The best-of-three series is tied at a game apiece. Coaches Gary Gilmore of Coastal Carolina (54-18) and Jay Johnson of Arizona (49-23) agreed with the decision to play today. Neither announced whether their pitching plans would change with the extra time off. Coastal Carolina was to start Alex Cunningham (10-4) against Arizona’s Bobby Dalbec (11-5). Both pitched on Saturday.

Escobar’s second go-ahead hit leads Royals over Cards in 12

June 30th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Alcides Escobar hit a go-ahead RBI double just inside the right-field line in the 12th inning and the Kansas City Royals outlasted the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 on Wednesday night. Escobar drove in the first run of the game with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the eighth. His fly to shallow right off Seth Maness (0-2) fell just in front of Stephen Piscotty, whose homer leading off the 10th tied it at 2.

Chien-Ming Wang (5-0) worked two scoreless innings for Kansas City, which survived blown saves by Wade Davis and Joakim Soria, stranded 19 runners and used all of its bench players. The Royals are 39-50 in the I-70 interleague series but 14-12 at 11-year-old Busch Stadium.

Whit Merrifield put Kansas City ahead in the 10th when a potential double-play grounder was booted by second baseman Matt Carpenter and Merrifield got an RBI. He also doubled with one out in the 12th.
