Johnson in a three-way tie at the top in J-D Classic


July 11th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

SILVIS, Ill. (AP) — Iowa golfer Zach Johnson, Rory Sabbatini and Brian Harman all shot an 8-under-63 to stake claim to the first round lead at the PGA’s John Deere Classic. They lead Todd Hamilton, William McGirt and Steven Bowditch by one shot.

There’s a little extra pressure this week. The top finisher not previously eligible for the British Open will earn a spot next week at Royal Liverpool for this year’s Open, provided he’s among the top five and ties.

Volquez leads Pirates to 9-1 win over Cardinals


July 11th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Edinson Volquez tossed a complete game six-hitter to win his fourth straight start and the Pittsburgh Pirates downed the St. Louis Cardinals 9-1 on Thursday night. Neil Walker, Josh Harrison, Russell Martin and Andrew McCutchen all drove in two runs for Pittsburgh, which avoided being swept in the four-game series. Volquez has a 0.90 ERA in winning four consecutive starts for the first time in his career. He struck out five and walked two.

Shelby Miller allowed four runs in five innings. He walked four and struck out one. Walker extended his hitting streak to a season-high 12 games with a two-run double in the fifth that extended the Pirates lead to 4-1. McCutchen started the three-run uprising with a run-scoring single that broke a 1-all tie.

McCutchen drove in a run in the sixth with a sacrifice fly. Harrison added a two-run double in the inning that made it 6-1.

Royals Place Vargas on DL after Appendectomy


July 10th, 2014 by Jim Field

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Royals placed left-hander Jason Vargas on the disabled list after an appendectomy and recalled reliever Louis Coleman from Triple-A Omaha before Thursday night’s game against Detroit.

Vargas began experiencing pain early Wednesday in Tampa, and underwent the procedure later in the day. He remained in Florida after the Royals beat the Rays to wrap up their series.

Vargas is off to the best start of his nine-year big league career. He’s 8-4 with 3.31 ERA in 19 starts, solidifying a rotation that lost Ervin Santana to free agency last season.

Coleman was a dominant reliever for the Royals last season, but he had an unsightly 6.41 ERA with the club this season. He’s been in Omaha trying to rediscover his form.

All-Star Catcher Molina Out 8-12 Weeks


July 10th, 2014 by Jim Field

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals All-Star catcher Yadier Molina will undergo surgery Friday to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb and will be sidelined eight to 12 weeks.

The Cardinals recalled catcher Audrey Perez from Triple-A Memphis before Thursday night’s game against Pittsburgh.

Molina was injured Wednesday when he planted his hand for balance after sliding feet-first into third base in the second inning. He caught another half-inning before Tony Cruz hit for him in the third.

Molina was voted to his sixth straight NL All-Star team Sunday and is a starter for the fourth time. He was hitting .287 with seven homers and 30 RBIs.

Hawksworth back after nasty Pocono crash


July 10th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — Jack Hawksworth hit the wall at Pocono so hard that he hurt his heart. Hawksworth hopes the wreck won’t halt the momentum of his promising rookie season in IndyCar. Hawksworth arrived for pre-race preparations at Iowa Speedway on Thursday, just four days after being released from the hospital. Hawksworth missed last weekend’s race at Pocono Raceway after a nasty crash during a practice run.

The 23-year-old native of England was diagnosed with a myocardial contusion — more commonly known as a bruised heart — but he’s since been cleared to run on Saturday.
