Lackey drives in run to lead Cardinals over Cubs 5-1


May 7th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — John Lackey drove in a run for the third time in his big league career and struck out 10 in 7 2-3 innings, helping the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 5-1 Thursday for their ninth win in 10 games. Jason Heyward singled three times with an RBI, and Peter Bourjos hit a run-scoring triple for the NL Central leaders, who took three of four from the second-place Cubs.

Lackey had been 6 for 67 at the plate in 13 major league seasons before a two-out, opposite-field RBI double to right in the fourth. Bourjos, who had been on first base, scored for a 4-0 lead on an error by Jorge Soler who, with his back to the plate, missed the ball as he tried to glove it between his legs near the foul line.


IHSAA Announces 2015 Football Players Hall of Fame Inductees


May 7th, 2015 by Jim Field

Six former prep players who achieved high school greatness will be honored by the Iowa High School Athletic Association with Hall of Fame induction at the 2015 Playoff Championships this fall.

The induction ceremonies will be featured at the halftime of the Class 4A Championship game the evening of Friday, November 20 in the University of Northern Iowa Dome.

Included among the new inductees and their year of graduation are Shamus McDonough of Corning (1978); Todd Millikan from Shenandoah (1984); Joel Crisman of Grundy Center (1989); Matt Straight from Logan-Magnolia (1991); Derek Sobaski of Pekin (1999); and Jason Scales who played at Valley, West Des Moines (2004).

Each of the six was a first team All-State player and a multiple sport athlete. Collectively, they also appeared in eight State Championship games. Five went on to play at the Division I level, and each has found ways to give back to the game and their communities.

The IHSAA Football Players Hall of Fame was started in 1980 by the Board of Control and this 36th honored class brings the total to 172 players from 108 schools. The Iowa Football Coaches Association will announce their coach hall of fame selections and the Walt Fiegel Coaching with Character Award winner later this fall. Those honorees will also be recognized at the championship games.

Cubs manager Maddon ejected for arguing with plate umpire


May 7th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon was ejected for arguing balls and strikes in the sixth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night. It appeared Maddon had already been tossed before coming onto the field to complain to plate umpire D.J. Reyburn during an at-bat by Starlin Castro to start the sixth. Castro ended up flying out to right in a game the Cubs led 5-2.

Chicago entered with a season-worst four-game losing streak. Maddon has been ejected twice this year. The other came April 17 against San Diego.


Cubs activate pitcher Justin Grimm from DL


May 7th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Chicago Cubs have activated right-hander Justin Grimm from the 15-day disabled list and recalled outfielder Matt Szczur from Triple-A Iowa. Outfielder Junior Lake was optioned to Iowa and right-hander Anthony Varvaro was designated for assignment Wednesday. Varvaro was claimed off waivers from Boston on Sunday and added to the 25-man roster Tuesday but did not pitch.

Grimm (right forearm inflammation) made one rehab appearance with a scoreless inning Monday for Iowa at Nashville. Grimm made the opening day roster for the second straight season but had not pitched in the majors this year. Grimm was 5-2 with a 3.78 ERA in 73 relief appearance last year with Chicago in his first full season in the majors.

This is the second call-up this season for Szczur, who made the opening day roster and was optioned to Iowa on April 19.


Cardinals division lead shrinks w/a Cubs win Wed. night


May 7th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

UNDATED (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have seen their division lead shrink for the first time since April 27th. The Redbirds had won eight in a row before Anthony Rizzo belted a solo homer and added a two-run double in the Chicago Cubs’ 6-5 triumph at St. Louis Wednesday night. Kris Bryant and Starlin Castro delivered RBI singles in the top of the first and Jorge Soler drove in the deciding run with an eighth-inning single.

Jon Lester gave up one earned run and seven hits in seven innings as the second-place Cubs pulled within 5 ½ games of the Redbirds in the NL Central. Jhonny Peralta hit a solo homer and Yadier Molina had two RBIs, but the Cardinals fell to 20-7.
