Johnson Cyclone Girls Relays 4-24-2013

‘Small ball’ helps Cards beat Nats 4-2 for sweep


April 24th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

WASHINGTON (AP) — Yadier Molina hit a two-run single off Stephen Strasburg during St. Louis’ three-run first inning, and the Cardinals beat the Nationals 4-2 Wednesday to complete a sweep and give Washington’s All-Star ace the only four-start losing streak of his young career. Jaime Garcia (2-1) allowed a run on Bryce Harper’s sixth-inning groundout, but otherwise added to the offensive struggles of the Nationals, who have lost six consecutive home games and nine of their last 12 overall to fall to 10-11.

Washington produced only four runs in the three-game set, a rematch of the 2012 NL division series won by St. Louis. Needing to be nearly perfect given Washington’s lack of offense, Strasburg (1-4) struggled through a 26-pitch, 12-minute first inning.

Purses lure elite athletes to Drake Relays


April 24th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – The Drake Relays begin this week with best field in recent memory. The annual Iowa meet and new sponsor Hy-Vee, a grocery store chain, came up with the idea of staging as many rematches of the 2012 London Games as possible to better compete with the more prestigious Penn Relays.

The lure of a $50,000 purse for elite invitational races and $25,000 for special field events has drawn 19 medalists from the London Olympics to Des Moines, including the gold, silver and bronze medalists from the 110-meter hurdles.

The 104th Drake Relays crowns its first winners on Thursday and concludes Sunday. It’s Friday and Saturday that are stacked with events featuring the Olympians.

Heath, Grace take Grand Blue Mile


April 24th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Garrett Heath and Kate Grace each set course records in winning the Grand Blue Mile race in downtown Des Moines on Tuesday night.  Heath, a former All-American at Stanford, crossed in 4:02.79 to claim the $5,000 purse and an extra $2,500 for setting a new course mark. Grace, a U.S. Olympic Trials semifinalist, also won $7,500 for her efforts.

Heath topped a field that included 2012 London Olympics 1,500-meter silver medalist Leo Manzano, who finished third. Grace beat two-time race champion Sara Hall by less than a second. The fourth annual Grand Blue Mile was connected to this weekend’s Drake Relays. Many of Tuesday night’s runners are expected to also compete at Drake Stadium.

Lot of quarterback changes in Big 12 next fall


April 24th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

UNDATED (AP) — The Big 12 is facing an identity crisis at quarterback. There will be a lot of new faces next fall. Seven of the league’s 10 teams had senior quarterbacks. Five of them started every game last season. Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads said Tuesday there’s a “little bit of unknown” until all the new quarterbacks show what they can do for their teams. But he says there’s no lack of talent.

The most experienced Big 12 quarterback is Texas junior David Ash, who has started 18 of his 25 games for the Longhorns. Casey Pachall is back at TCU, where he started 17 of 25 games, including the first four last season before leaving school for substance abuse rehabilitation.

Wainwright leads Cards past Nats 2-0


April 24th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

WASHINGTON (AP) — Adam Wainwright extended his sterling start to the season — and Washington’s mediocre one — by coming within two outs of his second shutout, leading the St. Louis Cardinals past the Nationals 2-0 Tuesday night. The right-hander (4-1) lowered his ERA to 1.93 by going 8 1-3 scoreless innings, allowing only five hits. Edward Mujica got the final two outs for his third save. Allen Craig and Carlos Beltran drove in runs in the fourth off Nationals lefty Ross Detwiler (1-1), who gave up eight hits across six innings.

The Nationals, who led the majors with 98 wins last season and were a popular pick to do well in 2013, lost for the eighth time in their past 11 games to fall to 10-10.
