(Radio Iowa) A University of Iowa wrestler is being treated after being shot in the knee early this morning.

An Iowa City police department spokesman says 22-year-old Sam Stoll was taken to University Hospitals at 4:37 this morning for treatment of a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his knee.

Sergeant Derek Frank says several people were at an Iowa City residence when someone shot a gun and it hit Stoll in the knee. He says they are still trying to sort out exactly what happened prior to the shooting.

The University of Iowa website shows Stoll is from Kasson, Minnesota and will be a redhshirt senior on the Hawkeye wrestling squad after finishing 5th at heavyweight in the national tournament last season.

Oregon St. rallies after delay to beat Huskies 14-5 at CWS


June 19th, 2018 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Oregon State kept things loose in the clubhouse during a weather delay that stretched to 4 ½ hours at the College World Series. Reserve outfielder Joe Casey entertained teammates by stuffing 30 pieces of gum into his mouth, a party game known as “Mafia” broke out and the tunes were cranked up.
When it was time to return to the field, the Beavers were all business.

Kyle Nobach hit a three-run homer to put Oregon State in control in the seventh inning, Kevin Abel pitched four strong innings of relief and Oregon State sent Pac-12 rival Washington home from the College World Series with a 14-5 win on Monday night.

“Crazy game. Long day,” Beavers coach Pat Casey said. “I thought our guys came out really prepared after the rain delay. We were kind of scuffling out of the chute. Really appreciate the way they hung with it and got themselves a win.” The Beavers erased early deficits, starting their comeback just before the teams were pulled off the field because of lightning near TD Ameritrade Park.

Oregon State (50-11-1), the No. 3 national seed, was coming off a loss to North Carolina in its CWS opener and still must win three more games to reach the best-of-three finals. Washington (35-26) went two games and out in its first CWS. Oregon State avoided going 0-2 at a CWS for the first time in five appearances since 2005.

Oregon State will play another elimination game Wednesday against the North Carolina-Mississippi State loser. That game was postponed until this (Tuesday) morning because of the long delay in the Beavers’ game and the threat of more rain Monday night.

Here is the latest Mid-America sports news from The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Left fielder Marcell Ozuna dived for and missed Aaron Altherr’s two-run double with two outs in the 10th inning, allowing the Philadelphia Phillies to rally for a 6-5 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. Tommy Pham hit a solo homer in the top of the 10th, one inning after a wild pitch on a strikeout kept the game going. But the Phillies rallied. Altherr won it with a sinking liner that appeared to skip off Ozuna’s glove before bouncing to the wall.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Right-hander Kelvin Herrera has been acquired by the Washington Nationals from the Kansas City Royals for three minor leaguers. The Nationals sent infielder Kelvin Gutierrez, outfielder Blake Perkins and right-hander Yohanse Morel to Kansas City in the deal announced during Washington’s doubleheader against the New York Yankees. Herrera has 14 saves and a 1.05 ERA this season. He’s allowed three earned runs in 25 2/3 innings while striking out 22 batters and walking two.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Bartolo Colon earned his 244th win, passing Hall of Famer Juan Marichal for the most by a pitcher born in the Dominican Republic, and the Texas Rangers beat the skidding Kansas City Royals 6-3. Adrian Beltre hit a three-run homer for the Rangers, who won their third straight. The 45-year-old Colon allowed three runs in six innings. Only right-hander Dennis Martinez has more victories among pitchers from Latin America. Martinez, a native of Nicaragua, won 245 games.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State coach Steve Prohm has added James Kane to his staff as an assistant.

Iowa State adds James Kane as an assistant coach


June 18th, 2018 by Chris Parks

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State coach Steve Prohm has added James Kane to his staff as an assistant.

Prohm announced the hiring of Kane, a former assistant of his at Murray State, on Monday.

Prohm, with Kane on his staff, led the Racers to a 104-29 record from 2011-15. Murray State reached the postseason three times, including the second round of the NCAA Tournament in 2012.

Kane moved to Dayton after Prohm accepted the head coaching job with the Cyclones three years ago.

Iowa State finished 13-18 in 2017-18, missing the NCAA Tournament for the first time in seven seasons.

Here is the latest Mid-America sports news from The Associated Press

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jack Flaherty and four relievers combined on a four-hitter, Matt Carpenter homered and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 5-0. Flaherty allowed just two hits while striking out seven in five innings, but he walked three and hit two batters and was pulled after throwing 97 pitches. John Brebbia gave up two hits in a scoreless sixth to earn his first major league win. Austin Gomber, Jordan Hicks and Bud Norris each pitched a hitless inning to end the Cardinals’ four-game losing streak.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez left in the top of the third inning against the Cardinals after being hit in the left elbow by a pitch from St. Louis starter Jack Flaherty. Baez, who leads the Cubs with 14 home runs, was replaced by Addison Russell.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Carlos Correa and the Houston Astros won their 11th straight game, finishing off a dominant 10-0 road trip by rallying past the Kansas City Royals 7-4. The World Series champion Astros swept their swing through Texas, Oakland and Kansas City, outscoring opponents 74-35. Last season, Houston had an 11-game winning streak end in Kansas City. This time, the Astros trailed 4-3 in the eighth inning before Correa led off with a tying homer.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Adalberto Mondesi is back with the Kansas City Royals as part of a roster shuffle. The Royals made six moves before playing Houston. Mondesi, the first player to make his major league debut in a World Series game, was recalled from Triple-A Omaha.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Gabe Holt hit a tiebreaking single in the fifth inning and drove in an insurance run in the ninth, leading Texas Tech to a stunning 6-3 win over defending national champion Florida in the College World Series. The Red Raiders won their CWS opener for the first time in their three appearances. They did it against the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament and a first-round draft pick in starting pitcher Brady Singer.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Luke Bonfield hit the go-ahead home run in the fifth inning and Arkansas broke open the game with an eight-run sixth on its way to an 11-5 win over Texas in the College World Series. The Razorbacks scored double-digit runs for the fourth time in six NCAA Tournament wins and had their highest total in 28 CWS games. The Longhorns lost their third straight Omaha opener since 2011.

NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — Justin Allgaier won all three stages and the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Iowa Speedway for his second victory of the season. Allgaier led 182 of 250 laps and survived an unlucky late caution by winning the restart.
