(Update) Iowa to honor former star Tyler Sash during Iowa St game

September 10th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa will honor former star safety Tyler Sash by switching out one of its “Tigerhawk” decals for Sash’s No. 9 for Saturday’s game at Iowa State. The 27-year-old Sash was found dead Tuesday in his Oskaloosa, Iowa, home, about 3 1/2 years after he won a Super Bowl during his rookie season with the New York Giants.

Foul play isn’t suspected. The Iowa State Medical Examiner’s office said an autopsy conducted Wednesday revealed “no acute trauma” or evidence that he was killed by external force. Sash starred for the Hawkeyes from 2007-10. As a junior in 2009, Sash picked off three Iowa State passes in a 35-3 win in Ames.

A memorial service is set for Friday at the Oskaloosa Community Stadium at the Lacey Complex in Oskaloosa. A private family burial will follow. Bates Funeral Chapel in Oskaloosa is handling arrangements.

AG: U. Iowa track email should have been marked confidential

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – A mistake by state defense lawyers enabled a plaintiff’s attorneys to release an email suggesting the University of Iowa athletics department discriminated against their client and other male candidates during a coaching search.
A spokesman for the Iowa Attorney General’s Office said it inadvertently failed to mark as confidential the email and thousands of other university documents provided to Michael Scott’s attorneys.

Scott is suing the university for gender bias, contending he was passed over for a job opening on the track and field staff repeatedly because he’s a man. His claims were bolstered last week when his attorneys exclusively gave The Associated Press a copy of the 2013 e-mail in which the head coach told assistants there was a “mandate from the administration to hire a female.”

Carpenter, Piscotty lead Cardinals past Cubs 4-3

September 10th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Matt Carpenter tripled and scored two runs and Stephen Piscotty doubled in the winning run Wednesday, leading St. Louis past the Chicago Cubs 4-3 to end the Cardinals’ three-game losing streak. The NL Central leaders scored three times in the eighth inning to avoid their first sweep at home this season and their first against the Cubs since September 2010.

Cubs left-hander Jon Lester left after seven dominant innings. He didn’t allow a hit after the third batter and retired 20 of his final 21 hitters. Carpenter scored after a triple in the first, and his single in the eighth ignited the rally. Piscotty’s double off the center-field wall scored Peter Bourjos and Carpenter. Jonathan Broxton (2-4) got the win and Trevore Rosenthal picked up his 43rd save. Clayton Richard (3-1) took the loss.

 

Chiefs put OT Paul Fanaika on IR, bring back LB Dezman Moses

September 10th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs have place offensive lineman Paul Fanaika on injured reserve and re-signed veteran linebacker Dezman Moses ahead of Sunday’s season opener in Houston. The team did not disclose the nature of Fanaika’s injury. He had spent time working with the first-string offensive line while other players were hurt, swapping between guard and tackle, after signing a three-year deal worth $8.1 million guaranteed in the offseason.

Moses spent last season on IR with an elbow injury. He was cut by the Chiefs on Sunday to make room for tight end Brian Parker, whom they claimed off waivers from San Diego. Moses has started six of the 29 games he’s played in during his career.

 

Iowa coach recalls Tyler Sash as a ‘special young man’

Sports

September 10th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says former standout safety Tyler Sash was a “special young man” whose death at age 27 is tragic. Ferentz recalled Sash on Wednesday as “a high energy player who did a lot of great things” on the field. Sash won a Super Bowl with the New York Giants in his rookie season after leaving Iowa to enter the NFL draft.

Sash was found dead Tuesday in his home in Oskaloosa, Iowa, where he was a star athlete before joining Iowa in 2007. Foul play isn’t suspected. The Iowa State Medical Examiner’s Office said an autopsy Wednesday revealed “no acute trauma” but the cause and manner of death remain under investigation.

Ferentz says the Hawkeyes will pay tribute to Sash during Saturday’s rivalry game at Iowa State.

September 8th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo homered and combined for seven RBIs and the Chicago Cubs earned their fifth straight win, beating the St. Louis Cardinals 8-5 in the middle game of a three-game series on Tuesday night. The Cardinals have the best record in the majors at 87-51, but have dropped five of six. Their lead over Pittsburgh in the NL Central slipped to 4 1/2 games. The Cubs are 6 1/2 back and are second on the NL wild card race behind the Pirates.

St. Louis was down 8-0 before pinch-hitter Randal Grichuk sparked a five-run seventh with a two-run homer estimated at 451 feet in the seventh. Jason Hammel (8-6) allowed three runs in six-plus innings for Chicago, which has won five in a row. Michael Wacha (15-5) gave up six runs in four innings, his shortest outing of the season and on 10 days’ rest.
