Farley has not settled on a QB at UNI

Sports

August 31st, 2015 by Ric Hanson

UNI coach Mark Farley may wait until right before Saturday’s kickoff at Iowa State to name a starting quarterback. Sawyer Kollmorgan, Aaron Bailey, Dalton Demos and Eli Dunne are all vying for the job. Dunne is a redshirt freshman from Grinnell who Farley says has stepped up his game.

Kollmorgan has started 27 games over the past three seasons. Farley had said he wanted to trim the competition down to two quarterbacks by game week. If he has done that he’s not letting on.

Email shows U. Iowa ‘mandate’ for female coach

Sports

August 31st, 2015 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An internal email says University of Iowa athletics department administrators ordered a female be hired for an assistant track coaching job in 2013. Attorneys for Mike Scott, a male coach who says he was illegally passed over for the job, received the email last week and provided it to The Associated Press. They’re portraying it as a strong piece of evidence that will help prove his gender discrimination allegations.

In the email, Head Coach Layne Anderson tells assistants that he had rewritten the position’s job description in a way to attract more female candidates. He writes that the change “is once again largely driven by the mandate from the administration to hire a female (qualified to them being optional).” A female was eventually hired.

The university has denied illegal discrimination.

Iowa State seeks fast start after opening day stumbles

Sports

August 31st, 2015 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Opening day losses have all but doomed Iowa State in each of the last two seasons. The Cyclones know that the path to a turnaround could begin with a strong start. Iowa State enters its seventh season under coach Paul Rhoads with an immediate must-win game on Saturday against Northern Iowa.

The Cyclones have dropped back-to-back home openers against FCS schools, starting with a defeat to Northern Iowa in 2013. A third such loss might again derail their season before it starts.

Carpenter, Moss, Reynolds homer as Cardinals beat Giants 7-5

Sports

August 30th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Matt Carpenter, Brandon Moss and Mark Reynolds all hit home runs, Yadier Molina drove in two and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the San Francisco Giants 7-5 on Sunday. Jason Heyward added three hits and drove in a run for the Cardinals, who won for the seventh time in eight games. Greg Garcia also drove in a run.

Jaime Garcia (7-4) allowed season highs in hits (10) and runs (four) but was effective enough to improve to 4-0 over his past six starts. He did not walk a batter and struck out one, a season low. Marlon Byrd celebrated his 38th birthday with a pair of doubles, a triple and four RBIs. Kelby Tomlinson also drove in a run for the Giants, who ended a 3-3 homestand. Chris Heston (11-8) gave up five runs in 3 2-3 innings.

 

Chiefs settle on long snapper, waive 11 players

Sports

August 30th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Chiefs have selected James Winchester to serve as their long snapper, waiving Andrew East and 10 others Sunday as they pare down to the 75-man roster limit by Tuesday afternoon. The Chiefs still need to cut four more players. Winchester and East, who recently became engaged to Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, made up one of the few position battles in training camp this year. East played his college ball at Vanderbilt.

Other players waived by the Chiefs were tight end Adam Schiltz; wide receivers Kenny Cook, Jeret Smith and L’Damian Washington; offensive linemen Charles Tuaau, Marcus Reed and Anthony Dima; defensive lineman Vaughn Martin; and defensive backs Kenneth Penny and Aaron Hester.

Kansas City visits St. Louis for its final preseason game Thursday night.

Lynn beats Giants for 1st time, hurts ankle, Cardinals win

Sports

August 30th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Lance Lynn pitched neatly into the eighth inning before leaving with ankle injury that’s not considered serious, beating San Francisco for the first time in his career as the St. Louis Cardinals blanked the Giants 6-0 Saturday.

Lynn (11-8) awkwardly came off the mound to field Juan Perez’s leadoff chopper in the eighth and twisted his right ankle trying to throw to first. That was Lynn’s final batter, and he exited with a mild ankle sprain that will be reevaluated Sunday. Lynn gave up six hits, struck out two and walked two. He had been 0-4 with a 6.33 ERA in his previous four regular-season starts against San Francisco and 0-1 in three postseason outings.

The right-hander outpitched Ryan Vogelsong (9-10) after losing to him 2-0 on Aug. 18 at Busch Stadium. The NL Central-leading Cardinals broke open a scoreless game with four runs in the fifth. Matt Carpenter hit an RBI single for the lead and Yadier Molina capped it with a two-run single.
