LOUIS (AP) — Gerrit Cole pitched seven scoreless innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates used home runs from Aramis Ramirez, Sean Rodriguez and Starling Marte to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-1 Sunday night.

Iowa State turns back Northern Iowa 31-7 before record crowd

Sports

September 6th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Sam Richardson threw two touchdown passes and Iowa State got rolling in the second half to open the season with a 31-7 victory over Northern Iowa on Saturday night. Iowa State bottled up its FCS opponent for most of the steamy night and provided a key victory for coach Paul Rhoads, who is under scrutiny after winning only five games over the last two seasons.

The Cyclones also ended a two-game losing streak to FCS teams and won its opener for the first time since 2012, delighting a record crowd of 61,500 in newly expanded Jack Trice Stadium. Illinois transfer Aaron Bailey totaled 199 yards and threw a touchdown pass in his first game at quarterback for the Panthers. But he was sacked five times and UNI was hurt throughout by poor field position.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Conley Wilkins ran for three touchdowns to lead Drake past William Jewell 44-30 Saturday night. Drake built a 26-9 in the third quarter on Andy Rice’s 48-yard touchdown pass to Andrew Yarwood with 7:54 left. But the Cardinals’ Anthony Mullins ran the ensuing kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown making it 26-16. Josh Lee hit a 24-yard field goal making it 29-16 to end the quarter.

Nick West then led the Cardinals 69 yards in eight plays, capped by a 21-yard touchdown pass to Cody Edwards cutting the lead to 29-23. Drake countered with its own eight-play drive, which ended with a 22-yard touchdown toss from Rice to Eric Staubert with 9:08 left. The two-point conversion extended the lead to 37-23. Wilkins, who had 110 yards rushing, concluded the Bulldogs’ scoring with a 4-yard run.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — C.J. Beathard threw for 211 yards and a touchdown in his first career start at Kinnick Stadium and Iowa pounded Illinois State 31-14 on Saturday. Beathard also ran for two touchdowns, and LeShun Daniels, Jr. had 123 yards rushing for the Hawkeyes in their opener.

Iowa held the FCS Redbirds to just 231 yards — roughly half of what they averaged per game last season. Iowa raced out to a 17-0 halftime lead and pushed it to 31-0 on Beathard’s 1-yard plunge midway through the fourth quarter. Jake Kolbe had 147 yards passing and two meaningless late TDs for Illinois State.
