Wacha, Cardinals beat Dodgers 7-1


June 5th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michael Wacha pitched seven effective innings, Jason Heyward and Kolten Wong drove in two runs each, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-1 on Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series between the National League’s top two teams.

The Cardinals, who knocked the Dodgers out of the playoffs in each of the previous two seasons, increased their Central Division lead to 6 1-2 games over the idle Pittsburgh Pirates while the Dodgers’ West Division advantage shrunk to 1 1-2 games over the idle San Francisco Giants.

Wacha (8-1) allowed a run and seven hits without walking a batter and had five strikeouts, five days after the Dodgers beat him 5-1 at St. Louis in a game that was delayed more than 2 hours by rain. This was the right-hander’s first road start against the Dodgers, whom he defeated twice in the 2013 NL championship series while shutting them out in 13 2-3 innings.


Iowa St looking for “return on investment” with new coach


June 5th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State President Steven Leath says he’s “open minded” about how much the university is willing to pay its next basketball coach, adding that the school is looking for a return on its investment.

Leath spoke to reporters Thursday for the first time since Fred Hoiberg left to take over the NBA’s Chicago Bulls. Leath says he intends to interview all the finalists identified by athletic director Jamie Pollard and weigh in with his opinion before Pollard makes the final decision. Leath says the next coach’s contract would likely be loaded with performance incentives tied to the team’s success in the Big 12 and nationally.

Cubs RF Jorge Soler goes on DL with left ankle injury


June 4th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

MIAMI (AP) — Chicago Cubs right fielder Jorge Soler, who leads all NL rookies with 15 hits, has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left ankle injury. Soler might be ready to return as soon as he’s eligible, manager Joe Maddon said. Soler played in every game until he was hurt when he stepped on first base awkwardly trying to beat out a grounder Monday against the Marlins.

Junior Lake started in right field for the second game in a row Wednesday, and Maddon said he’ll be interested to see who emerges in Soler’s absence. One candidate will be outfielder Mike Baxter, who was recalled from Triple-A Iowa 24 hours after being sent down.

Soler is batting .265 with four homers and 19 RBIs.

APNewsBreak: US investigating U. Iowa in field hockey case

News, Sports

June 3rd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The U.S. Department of Education is launching an investigation into the University of Iowa’s handling of gender discrimination claims against athletic director Gary Barta. In a letter obtained by The Associated Press, the department’s Office for Civil Rights notified the school of the investigation last week and requested numerous documents.

Four members of the women’s field hockey team filed a complaint in August alleging that Barta’s decision to fire coach Tracey Griesbaum was part of a pattern of discrimination against strong female coaches. Barta has denied the allegation. He says Griesbaum was fired after an investigation found concerns about how some players were treated.

The Office for Civil Rights says it will look into the school’s failure to investigate a sex discrimination complaint against Barta filed by students in October.

Lackey, Cardinals defeat Milwaukee 7-4 to win series


June 3rd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — John Lackey pitched seven innings and Matt Carpenter had two hits and drove in two runs, leading the Cardinals to a 7-4 victory Wednesday over the Milwaukee Brewers. St. Louis improved the best home record in the majors to 22-7 and won all three series during its nine-game homestand.

The 36-year-old Lackey (4-3) scattered 10 hits while striking out five and walking one. He is 4-1 in four career starts against Milwaukee. Lackey has gone 7-1 in 11 regular-season starts and one playoff outing at Busch Stadium since joining the Cardinals after a trade with Boston. Lackey is 4-1 in six starts at home this season. Trevor Rosenthal recorded his 17th save by getting the final two outs on a double play.

Milwaukee third baseman Hector Gomez crashed into the stands behind third and left the game against the St. Louis Cardinals. Gomez was trying to catch a foul ball hit by Jason Heyward in the sixth inning on Wednesday. Gomez hit the short wall at full speed and fell head-first into the seats. After being looked at, he left the game under his own power.

A Brewers spokesman says Gomez was examined by a doctor for a possible concussion and the results were negative. Hernan Perez moved from second base to third and Luis Sardinas came in to play second.
