Travelers to face Cards’ Carpenter in rehab start


July 14th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – The Arkansas Travelers are set to face 2005 National League Cy Young Award winner Chris Carpenter as the former St. Louis Cardinals’ ace makes a rehab start for the Double-A Springfield Cardinals.  Carpenter is trying to work his way back from nerve issues that have sidelined the 38-year-old right-hander since before the start of spring training and put his career in jeopardy.

St. Louis manager Mike Matheny has said Carpenter will be limited to a pitch count in the “60s-range” when he starts Monday’s game in Springfield against Arkansas. Carpenter gets one month before a decision must be made about if he’ll play in the majors this season.

Monday’s game is to start shortly after 7 p.m. in Springfield.

NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — Timothy Peters claimed the lead after a restart on lap 195 to win the NASCAR Trucks Series race at Iowa Speedway on Saturday night. The win is Peters’ first of the 2013 Trucks season and sixth of his career. He also became the first Trucks driver to win twice at Iowa.

Peters edged out 17-year-old Erik Jones for the victory by .225 seconds. Behind Jones was James Buescher in third, Ron Hornaday Jr. in fourth and Chase Elliot, another 17-year-old, in fifth.

Pole-sitter German Quiroga Jr. — the first Mexican-born driver to win a pole in the NASCAR Trucks Series — led the first 56 laps of the race before finishing 14th. Ty Dillon, who led a race-high 57 laps, finished 16th.

Summerhays is at 19-under par, good for a two-shot lead over Canada’s David Hearn who shot a 64. Summerhays is looking for his first PGA Tour win.

Defending champ Zach Johnson trails by three shots after posted a 67. He has now shot 19 consecutive rounds in the 60s on the TPC Deer Run course.

July 14th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Matt Garza pitched into the seventh inning for his fifth consecutive win and Alfonso Soriano homered again, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 6-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night.

The right-hander struck out four and walked two.

Jon Jay had four hits and Matt Adams went 2 for 4 for St. Louis, which had won six of seven, including a 3-2 victory in the second game of the four-game series on Friday night. Lance Lynn (11-4) was knocked out in the fifth inning in his second-shortest outing of the season.
