Iowa forward Dale Jones gets 6th year of eligibility


July 21st, 2016 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa power forward Dale Jones has been granted an extra year of eligibility. Jones tore a ligament in his right knee for the second time in three years in December after playing just six games. He was averaging 5.5 rebounds and three rebounds for the Hawkeyes.

Jones, a junior college transfer, is expected to give Iowa’s thin frontcourt a major boost over the next two seasons. The 6-foot-7, 227-pound Jones will likely get plenty of playing time after the Hawkeyes lost center Adam Woodbury and forward Jarrod Uthoff to graduation.

Hawkeyes coach Fran McCaffery announced the NCAA’s decision Thursday.

Gyorko hits 2 more HRs, Cardinals beat Padres 3-2 for sweep


July 21st, 2016 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jedd Gyorko homered for the fifth straight game off San Diego pitching, connecting twice with all three RBIs in a 3-2 victory that gave the St. Louis Cardinals a doubleheader sweep Wednesday night. Gyorko, dealt by the Padres in the offseason for outfielder Jon Jay, is 13 for 21 (.619) against his old team with six homers and 10 RBIs. He has 11 homers and 27 RBIs on the year with 40 starts spread across the infield. He started at third base both games of the doubleheader.

He has four consecutive three-hit games against San Diego and four career multi-homer games, with both long balls in Game 2 off Paul Clemens (1-1). Carlos Martinez (9-6) was dominant after a shaky first inning and a nosebleed in the second, and the Cardinals took the opener 4-2. Gyorko, Matt Holliday and Yadier Molina homered off Colin Rea (5-4).

The Cardinals, just 23-28 at home, go for a four-game sweep tonight (Thursday night) with ace Adam Wainwright facing Andrew Cashner.

Martinez shakes off nosebleed, Cardinals beat Padres


July 20th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Carlos Martinez was dominant after a shaky first inning and a nosebleed in the second, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the San Diego Padres 4-2 Wednesday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader. Only 11,191 fans were in the seats for the opener, rescheduled from a rainout on Tuesday night. Paid attendance was 40,184.

Matt Holliday, Jedd Gyorko and Yadier Molina homered off Colin Rea (5-4). Gyorko is 10 for 17 against his old team with three homers and seven RBIs. He homered against the Padres each of the previous three games. San Diego opened with Travis Janikowski’s double and Ryan Schimpf’s two-run homer but had just two more hits off Martinez (9-6), who pitched seven innings.

The game was halted about 12 minutes while Martinez was tended to on the field with two outs and none on in the second for a nosebleed. After play resumed, he retired 11 of his next 12 batters. Aledmys Diaz had two hits and has reached safely in 23 consecutive games, longest by a rookie this season. He is 13 for 19 against San Diego with a homer and four RBIs.

Seung Hwan Oh earned his third save in four chances. Rea had been 2-0 with a 3.68 ERA in his previous four starts. He allowed four runs in six innings.

Atlantic falls to Davenport Assumption at State Softball


July 20th, 2016 by Chris Parks

The Atlantic Trojans Softball team finally got their chance at a game in the State Softball Tournament on Wednesday afternoon but came up short to Davenport Assumption by a score of 11-3.  The Trojans were originally scheduled to play on Tuesday but all games were moved back a day due to heavy rain in Ft. Dodge.  Davenport Assumption jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the first inning and tacked on another run in the second.  They then rattled off 4 runs in the fourth, 1 in the fifth, and 2 in the sixth to push their lead to 11-0 before Atlantic scored 3 in the bottom of the sixth to keep the game alive.  No runs put up by either team in the 7th brought the game to a close at 11-3.  Davenport Assumtion scored their 11 runs on 15 hits and committed 1 error.  Atlantic scored 3 runs on 3 hits with 7 errors.

Atlantic will now play in the consolation bracket at noon on Thursday against CMB on Dodger Field at the Harlan Rogers Sports Complex in Ft. Dodge. They will then play in the 5th or 7th place game at 4:00pm on Thursday as well.
