OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – Daniel Pinero’s sacrifice fly scored Thomas Woodruff in the bottom of the 15th inning to give Virginia a 3-2 victory Tuesday night in a game that matched the longest in the College World Series’ 66-year history. Pinero fouled off two squeeze-bunt attempts against Trey Teakell before he lofted a fly to center. Cody Jones’ throw toward home never had a chance. The Cavaliers’ bench and bullpen emptied, with everybody mobbing Pinero near second base.

Virginia (51-14), which had a walk-off win against Mississippi on Sunday in nine innings, plays Friday in its bracket final. TCU (48-17) plays Ole Miss in an elimination game Thursday. Artie Lewicki (8-1) got the win and Teakell (6-1) took the loss.

It was the longest game, as measured by innings, since Southern California beat Florida State 2-1 in 15 in the 1970 national championship game.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – Pinch hitter John Gatlin’s single into short right field over a pulled-in, five-man infield in the bottom of the ninth inning gave Mississippi a 2-1 victory over Texas Tech in a College World Series elimination game Tuesday. The exciting finish came after Texas Tech had tied it in the top of the ninth. The Red Raiders (45-20) went 0-2 in their first CWS.

Ole Miss won after Colby Bortles walked with one out. Brantley Bell hit a comebacker to Cameron Smith, who tried to force out Bortles at second. But he threw high into center field, allowing Bortles to go to third.

Dominic Moreno came on to face Gatlin, with Texas Tech shifting an extra player to the left side of the infield and going with only two outfielders. Gatlin punched a 1-2 pitch over second base, and the celebration was on.

Chiefs’ Houston no-show for mandatory minicamp

Sports

June 18th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Pro Bowl pass rusher Justin Houston was a no-show Tuesday on the first day of the Kansas City Chiefs’ mandatory three-day minicamp. Houston, who is entering the final year of his contract, also skipped three weeks of voluntary workouts. He is due to make about $1.4 million this season.

In other news, tight end Travis Kelce, wide receiver Kyle Williams and cornerback David Van Dyke did individual workouts but were mostly limited. Kelce is coming off knee surgery, Williams a torn ACL and Van Dyke a hamstring injury.

Cornerback Sean Smith was absent with an illness, and rookie running back De’Anthony Thomas appeared to overheat in the hot, humid weather. He spent several minutes slumped in the shade before being escorted to the locker room.

Wacha gets key outs, Cardinals beat Mets 5-2

June 18th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Michael Wacha escaped a pair of jams with strikeouts, and the St. Louis Cardinals snapped a fifth-inning tie en route to a 5-2 victory over the New York Mets on Tuesday night. Yadier Molina hit his first homer since May 24 for the Cardinals, who have won eight of nine and will go for a three-game sweep on Wednesday. David Wright hit his first homer since May 28, and Lucas Duda also connected for the Mets, who have lost 11 of 14.

Mets manager Terry Collins batted the pitcher eighth with Eric Young Jr. hitting ninth for the second straight game in an effort to stimulate the offense. During the 14-game slump, the Mets have scored two or fewer runs seven times. Daisuke Matsuzaka worked a scoreless seventh inning in relief of Mets starter Jonathon Niese.

 

Big 12 hoops teams reload in offseason

Sports

June 17th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A string of underwhelming NCAA tournament performances obscured the fact that the Big 12 was perhaps the best league in the country in 2013-14. A flurry of moves in the past two months should help keep the Big 12 stocked with talent next season.

Texas recently signed the nation’s top remaining recruit in forward Myles Turner. League champion Kansas added point guard Devonte Graham following the departure of Naadir Tharpe last month. Iowa State replaced DeAndre Kane with another one-and-done senior, former UNLV star Bryce Dejean Jones.

It’s no coincidence that the Longhorns, Jayhawks and Cyclones will be among the favorites in a conference that should again be loaded in 2014-15.
