ST. LOUIS (AP) — Albert Pujols drew huge cheers in his long-awaited return to St Louis, but Marcell Ozuna spoiled the homecoming with a home run that helped the Cardinals beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-1. Pujols spent the first 11 years of his All-Star career with the Cardinals, helped them win the 2011 World Series and then signed with Angels as a free agent. This was the first time the Angels have visited St. Louis since Pujols left. Pujols went 1 for 2 with a walk.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Max Kepler’s RBI single drove in the tiebreaking run and Eddie Rosario added a run-scoring hit to cap Minnesota’s three-run rally in the eighth and the Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 8-7. Minnesota scored five runs in the last three innings to avoid its first three-game losing streak of the season. Cheslor Cuthbert had three hits and four RBIs _ tying career highs in both _ for the Royals

Shayok selected in 2nd round of NBA Draft by the 76ers

Sports

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State guard Marial Shayok was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers in the second round of the 2019 NBA Draft Thursday evening in Brooklyn, New York.

Horton-Tucker was selected with the No. 54 pick to become the 40th former Cyclone to be drafted. Iowa State has had 13 players drafted since the Big 12 was formed in 1996-97, the third-best total in the league.

Shayok was outstanding in his only season on the court for Iowa State. After transferring from Virginia, Shayok took advantage of his sit-out season to improve his offensive game and the work paid off as he was the Big 12’s second-best scorer averaging 18.7 points per contest.

The Ottawa, Ontario native was extremely efficient, becoming just the eighth Division I player this decade to average 18.5 points and shoot 49 percent from the field, 38 percent behind the arc and 87 percent at the free-throw line. He scored at least 17 points in 27 of 34 games, pouring in 20 or more in 16 different games on his way to earning All-Big 12 First-Team accolades. Shayok was a finalist for the Julius Erving Award, which is giving annually to the nation’s top small forward.

In an era where transfer players have played a significant role in Iowa State’s success, Shayok topped them all with 637 points after arriving at the school.

Shayok was also name the Big 12 Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. He averaged 18 points in wins against Baylor, Kansas State and Kansas with his three-pointers late in the semifinal win against the Wildcats highlighting the mid-March run.

Shayok becomes the seventh player that Iowa State head coach Steve Prohm has had drafted in his eight years as a college coach (Murray State and Iowa State).

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State guard Talen Horton-Tucker was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round of the 2019 NBA Draft Thursday evening in Brooklyn, New York.

Horton-Tucker was selected with the No. 46 pick to become the 39th former Cyclone to be drafted. Iowa State has had 12 players drafted since the Big 12 was formed in 1996-97, the third-best total in the league.

Horton-Tucker, a Chicago, Illinois native, showed his versatility in his only season in Ames. The 6-4 guard was third on the team with 11.8 points. He also averaged 4.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals for the Cyclone on his way to earning a spot on the Big 12 All-Freshman Team as well as All-Big 12 honorable mention accolades.

Horton-Tucker played in all 35 games for the Cyclones, making 34 starts as the fourth-youngest player in Division I basketball. He was second among Big 12 freshmen in scoring average, reaching double figures in 19 games. He scored 20 points in six games, posting a career-high 26 points in wins against Illinois and Texas Southern. Against the Illini, Horton-Tucker put together his best overall game, adding 14 rebounds, six assists and three blocks.

He starred on the big stage of the Big 12 Championship quarterfinals against Baylor, finishing the game with 21 points and making five 3-pointers as ISU went on to win its fourth Big 12 Championship in the last six seasons.

Horton-Tucker was ISU’s second freshman since 1992-93 (Curtis Stinson) to have 400 points, 150 rebounds and 75 assists. He is just the fourth Big 12 freshman to reach those marks as well.

Horton-Tucker becomes the sixth player that Iowa State head coach Steve Prohm has had drafted in his eight years as a college coach (Murray State and Iowa State).

Trial set for official accused of being drunk at meeting

News, Sports

June 21st, 2019 by Ric Hanson

FOREST CITY, Iowa (AP) — A December trial has been scheduled for a former professional football player who’s been accused of being drunk and armed with a handgun while attending a northern Iowa county board meeting. Winnebago County court records say 63-year-old Mike Stensrud pleaded not guilty Wednesday to two misdemeanors: public intoxication and carrying a firearm while under the influence. His trial is set to begin Dec. 11 at the county courthouse in Forest City.

Police say Stensrud, a Winnebago County supervisor, drank alcohol from a cup during the May 21 meeting, and an alcohol breath test showed his blood alcohol level was above the legal limit for driving. Police say the Stensrud acknowledged having a pistol, which an officer found in one of Stensrud’s pockets. Stensrud played at Iowa State before going pro. He retired from the National Football League in 1989.
