ST. LOUIS (AP) — Adam Wainwright threw a three-hit shutout to keep rolling in July, and the St. Louis Cardinals snapped the Miami Marlins’ four-game winning streak with a 5-0 victory Saturday night. Jhonny Peralta homered and Stephen Piscotty had two hits, a walk and two RBIs at Busch Stadium. Wainwright struck out five with two walks and didn’t allow a hit until Adeiny Hechavarria doubled to open the sixth inning.

DETROIT (AP) — Salvador Perez singled, doubled, scored a run and drew two of Kansas City’s seven walks as the Royals eased to an 8-4 victory at the Detroit Tigers Saturday night. Kansas City scored four runs in the first inning off Mike Pelfrey, who didn’t make it out of the second. Every hitter in the Royals’ lineup scored exactly once except right fielder Paulo Orlando.

DETROIT (AP) — The Kansas City Royals have reinstated closer Wade Davis from the 15-day disabled list. Davis hasn’t pitched since June 30th because of a strained right forearm. Kansas City also optioned right-hander Brooks Pounders to Triple-A Omaha before Saturday night’s win at Detroit.

Suzuki does his piece in Marlins’ 7-6 win over Cardinals

Sports

July 16th, 2016 by Chris Parks

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Ichiro Suzuki had a pinch-single for his 2,991st career hit and scored to tie it in the eighth inning and Miguel Rojas drove in the go-ahead run in the ninth as the Miami Marlins beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-6 on Friday night for their fourth straight victory.

Tommy Pham had two of the Cardinals’ four homers and drove in four runs. Stephen Piscotty and Randal Grichuk also connected for St. Louis, which hit two each off Wei-Yin Chen and reliever David Phelps but had three defensive miscues.

The hit was the first since July 4 for the 42-year-old Suzuki. He’s had just seven pinch-hit appearances and one start this month with the Marlins, who have a steady outfield rotation of Christian Yelich, Marcell Ozuna and Giancarlo Stanton.

The Cardinals blew leads of 4-1 and 6-5 to fall to 19-27 at home. They were 55-26 at home last year, tied for best in the majors.

Frederickson Foundation foots the bill for transportation to the State Softball Tourney

News, Sports

July 15th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

The Trevor Frederickson Foundation is footing the bill for transportation to the State Softball Tournament next week, in Fort Dodge. Atlantic faces Davenport Assumption Tuesday, July 19th, beginning at 1-p.m. Foundation officials said Thursday, anyone wanting to ride the Atlantic High School Pep Bus in support of the Trojan Softball Team, should contact the High School by no later than the end of the day today (Friday), at 243-5358, and reserve your spot on the bus. In addition, the Foundation will pay the students’ admission ticket price to the game for any student wishing to ride the Pep Bus.

There is no limit to the number of people who can ride, and they’ll use as many buses as needed. The Foundation will pay the cost of the buses. In addition, there will be a drawing on each bus, for a $50 gift card from Olsen’s B-P.

The Trevor Frederickson Foundation is working with the Atlantic School District Administration to coordinate the project.

 

Road looks tougher for Cubs in second half

Sports

July 15th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

UNDATED (AP) — The second half of the Major League Baseball season gets underway today (Friday), when the All-Star break ends with a 15-game schedule. The Cubs raced out to a seven-game lead at the break by playing the second-easiest schedule in the majors. But things might get a little tougher for the NL Central leaders in next few weeks.

Chicago returns from the All-Star break with three games against AL-leading Texas and then plays the Mets, Brewers, White Sox and Mariners to close out July. All but Milwaukee are over .500 and competing for playoff spots.

St. Louis opens the season’s second-half at home, hosting Miami starting tonight. The Kansas City Royals will be on the road at Detroit.
