Lackey, long balls lift Cards over Dodgers 3-1

Sports

October 7th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Kolten Wong hit a two-run homer to snap a seventh-inning tie, Matt Carpenter went deep for the third straight game and John Lackey lived up to his big-game reputation as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 Monday night to take a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five NL Division Series.

Facing elimination in St. Louis for the second consecutive postseason, the Dodgers will turn to ace Clayton Kershaw on short rest Tuesday night in Game 4. Shelby Miller makes his first career postseason start for the Cardinals, one win from a fourth straight trip to the NL Championship Series.

The Cardinals finished off Los Angeles in a six-game NLCS last fall, knocking out Kershaw in the fifth inning of a 9-0 blowout in the final game. Two runners reached against Trevor Rosenthal in the ninth before he earned his second save of the series — with an assist from the grounds crew on a rainy night.

TCU, Baylor turn Big 12 upside down

Sports

October 6th, 2014 by Jim Field

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Texas-Oklahoma game is typically a bellwether matchup for the Big 12 title race.

It’s not even the biggest game in Texas this weekend.

That distinction belongs to a matchup between No. 9 TCU (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) and fifth-ranked Baylor (5-0, 2-0), the league’s last two unbeaten teams.

But that’s just the way things are these days in the upside-down Big 12.

Big 12 Reprimands Iowa State AD Jamie Pollard

Sports

October 6th, 2014 by Jim Field

In accordance with the Big 12 Conference Principles and Standards of Sportsmanship, the Conference has issued a public reprimand of Iowa State University Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard for his comments following Saturday’s game against Oklahoma State. In addition, the Conference assessed a $25,000 fine for Pollard’s post-game remarks and put him on notice that any similar behavior will result in a more serious penalty.

“Mr. Pollard’s public statements called into question the integrity and competence of game officials and the Conference’s officiating program,” stated Commissioner Bob Bowlsby. “To imply that games are called unfairly to negatively impact a program is irresponsible and completely baseless. Accordingly, the seriousness of this violation warrants a public reprimand and a financial penalty. We take pride in our officiating programs and will continue to strive for the highest possible standards and the fairest competition.”

JAMIE POLLARD STATEMENT

“Although on Saturday I felt the need to defend our players and our institution, Dr. Leath and I recognize that our decision to have me do so publicly was in violation of the conference’s sportsmanship guidelines and we accept the Commissioner’s punishment. Furthermore, I apologize for implying that Iowa State University’s vote against the addition of an eighth official at a conference meeting in 2013 impacted game officiating. It was inappropriate for me to do so. We are committed to working with the Big 12 Conference in the appropriate manner moving forward.”

Fake punt helps 49ers beat Chiefs 22-17

Sports

October 5th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Colin Kaepernick threw for 201 yards and a touchdown, Frank Gore ran for 107 yards and the San Francisco 49ers converted a fake punt to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 22-17 on Sunday. The 49ers (3-2) turned to a trick play on fourth-and-1 from their own 29 early in the fourth quarter, giving a direct snap to Craig Dahl for a 3-yard run up the middle. Kaepernick directed the offense down field, and Phil Dawson kicked a 27-yard field goal with 8:42 to play for the go-ahead score.

Dawson also connected from 55, 52, 35 and 30 yards. The 49ers held off former franchise quarterback Alex Smith and the Chiefs (2-3) twice in the closing moments. Smith threw for 175 yards and two touchdowns, but Perrish Cox intercepted his overthrown pass to end any chance Kansas City had to rally.

Kemp’s HR lifts Dodgers over Cards, NLDS tied at 1

Sports

October 5th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Matt Kemp hit a go-ahead home run leading off the eighth inning, lifting the Los Angeles Dodgers over the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 Saturday night and evening their NL Division Series at a game apiece. Kemp practically skipped down the first base line, appearing to coax the ball fair as it sailed inside the foul pole and into the lower left field seats while the crowd of 54,599 erupted in cheers. Bubbles percolated into the hot night air from a machine in the dugout that the Dodgers turn on to celebrate homers.

No one looked happier greeting Kemp in the dugout than J.P. Howell, who had served up a tying, two-run homer to Matt Carpenter in the top of the inning after relieving Zack Greinke. Kemp hugged Howell after connecting off Pat Neshek.

Game 3 is Monday night in St. Louis, with John Lackey starting for the Cardinals against Hyun-Jin Ryu.

Indiana State rallies past Northern Iowa 20-19

October 4th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) – Wide receiver Chris O’Leary threw a 38-yard touchdown pass to Gary Owens on a trick play with 2:12 remaining and Indiana State held off Northern Iowa 20-19 in the Missouri Valley Conference opener for both teams Saturday.

The Sycamores (4-1, 1-0) led 14-0 early, but gave up 19 straight points before breaking the drought on Owens’ score. Mike Perish’s pass was intercepted on the two-point try. Sawyer Kollmorgen drove Northern Iowa (2-3, 0-1) down to the Sycamore 36, but Michael Schmadeke’s 53-yard field goal attempt was short. Buck Logan and Perish each had first-quarter rushing touchdowns for Indiana State. Owens had six receptions for 79 yards.

Kollmorgen had a 5-yard touchdown run and Schmadeke kicked four field goals with a long of 48 yards. Schmadeke’s 30-yarder gave Northern Iowa its first lead and a 31-yarder made it 19-14 with 14:48 left.
David Johnson had 127 yards rushing for the Panthers.

Iowa State AD goes on 2 1/2-minute tirade about call

Sports

October 4th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard went on a 2 1/2-minute tirade about a call that he believes turned the game in the Cyclones’ 37-20 loss to No. 21 Oklahoma State on Saturday.  With the score tied at 6-all late in the second quarter, the officials ruled Oklahoma State’s Desmond Roland was stopped just short of the goal line as time expired in the first half. The play was reviewed and the call reversed, giving the Cowboys a 13-6 lead.

Pollard said it was the latest in a string of bad calls against the Cyclones in recent years.  He said some Iowa State players acted inappropriately after the call, and he didn’t fault them, saying such calls end “careers for football coaches, ADs and presidents, so something’s got to be done.”
