Navarro lifts Cubs to 6-5 win over Cardinals

Sports

August 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Pinch-hitter Dioner Navarro hit a run-scoring double in the eighth inning to cap a three-run rally and the Chicago Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-5 Saturday night to win a series in St. Louis for the first time in nearly three years. Matt Holliday homered for twice St. Louis, which lost its fourth in a row. Chicago won for the third time in four games.

The Cubs trailed 4-2 entering the eighth, but tied it 4-4 on Darwin Barney’s two-out, two-run double by off reliever Trevor Rosenthal (1-3). Navarro followed with his fifth pinch-hit RBI of the season to give Chicago a 5-4 lead. Blake Parker (1-1) picked up the victory for the Cubs, who last won a series in St. Louis on Sept. 13-15, 2010.

Kevin Gregg picked up his 25th save in 29 opportunities despite giving up Holliday’s 15th homer of the season, a solo shot with one out in the ninth.

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (AP) — Donny Schatz charged from the back of the field Saturday night to win the Knoxville Nationals sprint car race for the seventh time in eight years. Schatz earned $150,000 for winning the world’s premier sprint car event. Schatz started 21st, the furthest back of any winner at the nationals. Brian Brown was second, followed by Justin Henderson, Paul McMahan and Chad Kemenah.

The race came less than a week after NASCAR star Tony Stewart, Schatz’s team owner, broke his leg racing sprint cars in nearby Oskaloosa. Fellow NASCAR driver Kyle Larson finished sixth.

$5 million facility near Sioux City to feature gun, archery ranges

News, Sports

August 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

A massive facility that will attract gun enthusiasts in northwest Iowa is scheduled to open next summer. Officials broke ground on the five-million dollar project this week just across the Missouri River from Iowa in South Sioux City, Nebraska. The business is called Calibra8 (pronounced calibrate) and president Jason Rainboth says it’ll be the first of its kind in the region. “We’re going to have a 24 lane indoor gun range. We’ll also have an 8-lane archery range indoors, which will have a second tier shot, which is something you never see in an archery range,” Rainboth said. “We’re also going to have a full service pro shop and armory. We’ll sell guns, ammunition, and all the accessories that go along with that, but we’ll also be renting guns.”

The 90,000 square foot facility will also house a 24 hour gym and cross-fit training center, as well as banquet halls and meeting rooms. Rainboth believes the area will eventually host regional and national competitions. “For both the archery and the shooting ranges, we are looking to host IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association) events…all the shooting circuits that are out there, we would like to be able to host those on a regional or national level,” Rainboth said. The company will also serve as a firearms training facility for local law enforcement and military personnel, as well as the public. That’s something Dakota County (Nebraska) Sheriff Chris Kleinberg says is an area need.

“Especially in the last year, the handgun purchase permits have been crazy. People want firearms, but the lack of training – with such – is a little nerve-racking to law enforcement,” Kleinberg said. “This facility will actually help with that, which is a good thing. I think every citizen should be armed.” Calibra8 will initially employ around 40 people, but Rainboth said they may eventually need 100 workers.

Cubs get 1st shutout in St. Louis in 16 years

Sports

August 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Anthony Rizzo had a two-run single, Chris Rusin pitched around seven hits in six innings, and the Chicago Cubs recorded their first shutout in St. Louis in 16 years with a 3-0 victory over the Cardinals on Friday night. Rusin (2-1) twice worked out of bases-loaded jams and only set the Cardinals down in order in the first. He struck out a season-high five and issued two intentional walks.

Kevin Gregg recorded his 24th save to complete the Cubs’ first shutout in St. Louis since Jeremi Gonzalez tossed one on June 23, 1997. Lance Lynn (13-6), attempting to become the National League’s first 14-game winner, labored over 6 2-3 innings despite giving up just three hits. He threw 115 pitches and was charged with all three runs.

Parker’s 2 TDs help Saints top Chiefs, 17-13

Sports

August 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Preston Parker had a pair of touchdown catches in his bid to fill one of New Orleans’ open receiver spots, and the Saints defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 17-13 in the preseason opener for both teams Friday.

New Chiefs coach Andy Reid saw all he needed of new starting quarterback Alex Smith in the opening drive, which went 80 yards on 14 plays, capped by Jamaal Charles’ TD run. Smith was 7 of 8 for 68 yards. With Saints coach Sean Payton on the sideline for the first time since his bounty ban ended, Drew Brees was 7 of 10 for 65 yards in two series, which produced one field goal.

His longest completion went for 22 yards to rookie Kenny Stills, who like Parker is a candidate to replace injured deep threat Joe Morgan as the Saints’ No. 3 receiver behind Marques Colston and Lance Moore.
