May 15th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

The Kansas City Chiefs have released former fifth-round draft pick De’Quan Menzie, who spent all of last season on injured reserve, and reserve offensive lineman Lucas Patterson. Chiefs coach Andy Reid announced the moves Tuesday, shortly after the Chiefs finished off the first of their voluntary full-squad workouts. Menzie was a standout defensive back at Alabama, but missed most of the offseason program as a rookie because of a hamstring problem. He wound up on IR and never played in a game. The Chiefs have turned over much of their offensive line this offseason, drafting Eric Fisher first overall Eric Kush in the sixth round. They also signed several players in free agency to provide depth, ultimately making Patterson expendable.

Any question about whether Branden Albert would fit right back in with the Kansas City Chiefs was put to rest when new quarterback Alex Smith greeted his left tackle with a smile. Albert rejoined the Chiefs on Tuesday after missing several weeks of voluntary workouts and meetings for the start of organized team activities, which run for the next three weeks.

Albert has been seeking a long-term contract, but the two sides have been far apart. So the Chiefs placed the franchise tag on Albert and he signed the tender for about $9.3 million this season, yet chose to stay away from the team. There were even discussions with the Miami Dolphins to trade him.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Carlos Beltran drove in four runs and rookie left-hander John Gast picked up a win in his major league debut, helping the St. Louis Cardinals cruise past the New York Mets 10-4 on Tuesday night. Gast (1-0) tossed five shutout innings before giving up four runs in the sixth. He surrendered six hits, struck out three and walked one in a 71-pitch effort to help the Cardinals win for the fifth time in six games and 11th in their last 13.

Beltran slammed a three-run homer in the fifth inning, his team-high tenth, to give St. Louis a 9-0 lead. He also added a run-scoring hit in the third. Dillon Gee (2-5) gave up six runs — five earned — in four innings for the Mets, who lost their fifth straight.

Iowa State to host Auburn in Big 12/SEC Challenge

AMES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa State men’s basketball team will host Auburn in the inaugural Big 12/SEC Challenge on Dec. 2. The Cyclones and Tigers will meet for just the third time. Iowa State beat Auburn 79-60 in the second round of the NCAA tournament in 2000.

Auburn finished 9-23 and just 3-15 in the SEC last season. Iowa State won 23 games and advanced to the third round of the NCAA tournament for the second year in a row. Iowa State will also host Iowa and Michigan in non-conference play next season and face Northern Iowa on a neutral floor.

Iowa guard Ingram to transfer

Sports

May 14th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa guard Patrick Ingram plans to transfer schools after just one season with the Hawkeyes.  Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says Ingram, a native of Indianapolis, has been granted a release from his scholarship after indicating he wants to play closer to home.

Ingram fell behind fellow freshmen Mike Gesell and Anthony Clemmons in a crowded backcourt last season.  Gesell and Clemmons both cracked the starting lineup, while Ingram averaged less than a point a game in 19 appearances.

The Hawkeyes will also add incoming freshman guard Peter Jok, Iowa’s Mr. Basketball in 2013.

Chiefs hire ‘pistol’ innovator Ault as consultant

Sports

May 14th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have hired former Nevada coach Chris Ault, the innovator of the “pistol” offensive formation that has swept through the NFL, to serve as a special consultant. Ault’s agent, Bob LaMonte, confirmed the hiring to The Associated Press on Monday. It was first reported by the Reno Gazette-Journal, which covered Ault during his college coaching years. It wasn’t clear exactly what his duties will be with the Chiefs.

The pistol offensive formation lines up the quarterback a few yards behind center, but short of the traditional shotgun formation. The idea is to give the quarterback, particularly those with the ability to run the option, more versatility immediately after the snap. Ault utilized the offense at Nevada with Colin Kaepernick, who led the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl this past season.

Wigginton dash boosts Cardinals past Mets 6-3

Sports

May 14th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Lance Lynn overcame early control woes and St. Louis used a three-run seventh inning to beat the New York Mets 6-3 on Monday night. Lynn (6-1) allowed three runs on three hits and four walks the first two innings. He only gave up one hit and one walk in his last five innings. He is 4-0 at home this season.

Rick Ankiel, signed by the Mets earlier in the day after clearing waivers and playing against the team that revived his career as a position player, just missed a diving catch on Ty Wigginton’s pinch-hit bloop double to shallow center off Scott Rice (1-3) to open the seventh. Matt Carpenter followed Wigginton’s hit with a sharp grounder off Rice’s leg and the ball rolled into foul territory down the first-base line. Wigginton never stopped running and his head-first slide barely beat the tag to snap a 3-3 tie.
