Cardinals get MLB-record 3 pinch-hit HRs, beat Braves 7-4

Sports

April 9th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

ATLANTA (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals set a major league record with three pinch-hit home runs while rallying from a four-run deficit to beat the Atlanta Braves 7-4 Friday night. Rookie Aledmys Diaz got his first career homer to break a tie as a pinch-hitter in the eighth, and Greg Garcia and rookie Jeremy Hazelbaker also had pinch-hit homers in the Cardinals’ first win.

Hazelbaker homered off Matt Wisler in the seventh to tie the game at 4. Garcia and Stephen Piscotty homered in the ninth. St. Louis, swept in its opening three-game series at Pittsburgh, avoided its first 0-4 start since 1997. Kevin Siegrist (1-0) threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings before Trevor Rosenthal pitched a perfect ninth for the save.

The homer by Diaz into the left field seats came on the second pitch from left-hander Eric O’Flaherty (0-2).

Turkey hunting season opens tomorrow for Iowa’s youth

Ag/Outdoor, News, Sports

April 8th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

Iowa’s spring turkey hunting season opens for youth-only tomorrow (Saturday). Officials with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources say about 50-thousand turkey licenses have been purchased so far this year. Jim Coffey, a forest wildlife species technician with the D-N-R’s Wildlife Bureau, predicts an excellent season ahead.

“We’re going to be coming off of a good hatch, not just last year but two years ago,” Coffey says. “I would expect to see lots of two-year-old gobblers out there. Those are sometimes aggressive birds that will come to the call more readily than the older birds do. Don’t be surprised if you have a couple-three birds show up to your calls this year.” The wild turkey population should be strong this spring, he predicts, as this past winter wasn’t too harsh.

“Unless we have deep snow over 10-inches, turkeys survive real well in Iowa,” Coffey says. “They want to get out. The sun’s changing, the temperatures are changing. They’re ready to get out and start doing their spring thing and get the nesting season started.” Many hunters could benefit from a reminder about safety, Coffey says.

“We want to make sure we identify our target, we identify downrange so we know what we’re shooting at because if we shoot the wrong thing, we may be in violation,” Coffey says. “We’re going to shoot male birds or bearded birds. On the ethical side, be friendly to the other hunters. Don’t try to sneak in on somebody or do something that might disrupt their hunt.”

The youth-only season begins Saturday and runs through April 17. The first of the four regular seasons will be April 18 through 21. The second is April 22 through 26. The third is April 27 to May 3. The fourth season is May 4 to 22. The archery-only license is good from April 18 through May 22. Learn more at: www.iowadnr.gov

US to host Olympic wrestling team trials

Sports

April 8th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

CORALVILLE, Iowa (AP) — The U.S. wrestling team will find out this weekend which 18 athletes will be eligible for the Summer Olympics. Half of the wrestlers who make the team might not make it the Rio.

The Americans find themselves in a precarious position as Olympic qualifying draws to a close. The U.S. has earned Summer Games spots in just nine of 18 classes ahead of the Olympic Team Trials, which start Saturday in Iowa City.

The U.S. still has plenty of chances to add Olympic berths in upcoming tournaments in Mongolia and Turkey. So for many of the wrestlers who win team spots this weekend, the path to Rio De Janeiro will have just begun.

Iowa St PG Monte Morris to return for senior season

Sports

April 8th, 2016 by Chris Parks

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State point guard Monte Morris says he’s returning for his senior season.

Morris led the nation in assist-to-turnover ratio as a freshman and sophomore, and last season he set career highs with 13.9 points and four rebounds per game. Morris also broke the school record with 6.9 assists per game, a mark formerly held by longtime NBA star Jeff Hornacek.

His return is welcome news for Iowa State, which will lose star Georges Niang and fellow starters Jameel McKay and Abdel Nader. Morris will join fellow seniors Naz Long and Matt Thomas in what should be a loaded backcourt, and junior college transfer Emmanuel Malou is expected to make an immediate impact in the frontcourt.
