Nationwide regulars looking forward to Iowa

Sports

June 8th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — This weekend’s NASCAR Nationwide race in Iowa promises to be a rare treat for series regulars. The 0.875-mile oval has always been a favorite among the drivers and today’s (Saturday’s) race is as good a chance as any for a series regular to score a victory.

Joey Logano is the lone Sprint Cup driver scheduled to race at Iowa. Though Logano is coming off a win at Dover last weekend, it appears likely that a Nationwide driver could win for just the third time in 12 starts this season.

     CINCINNATI (AP) – Adam Wainwright pitched seven innings for his ninth win, and every Cardinals starter had a hit in a 9-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night that gave St. Louis a four-game lead in the NL Central, its biggest of the season.
 
     Wainwright (9-3) gave up two runs and seven hits as the Cardinals improved the major leagues’ best record to 40-21.
 
     Slumping Pete Kozma drove in three runs, David Freese and Jon Jay knocked in two apiece, and four Cardinals extended long hitting streaks against a pitching staff in a downturn. Mike Leake (5-3) lasted only five innings for the Reds, who have given up 26 runs while losing their last three games.
 
     St. Louis has won the last four series between the teams.

Cardinals’ Chris Carpenter again throws to hitters

Sports

June 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter has thrown to hitters for the second time in four days as he tries to overcome a career-threatening nerve issue. The St. Louis right-hander threw about 25 pitches to teammates Shane Robinson and Tony Cruz on Thursday. It was Carpenter’s fourth outing in a possible comeback. The former Cy Young winner hasn’t pitched this season after feeling numbness in his throwing shoulder during spring training. Carpenter missed most of last year, then went 1-2 in the playoffs.

Carpenter didn’t speak to the media before the Cardinals played Arizona. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said Carpenter’s pitches moved well. Matheny said Carpenter’s next step will likely be a similar session with live batters in a few days if his body feels well enough.

Cardinals promote LHP Siegrist, send down Cleto

Sports

June 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have promoted pitcher Kevin Siegrist from Triple-A Memphis. The Cardinals recalled Siegrist on Thursday and optioned pitcher Maikel Cleto to Memphis. Siegrist was picked as the Cardinals’ best minor league pitcher in May. The left-handed reliever went 2-1 with a 1.95 ERA at Triple-A and Double-A. The Cardinals began the day with the best record in the majors. Siegrist becomes the 22nd pitcher they’ve had on their roster this season.

Manager Mike Matheny said Siegrist was called up in part because St. Louis travels to Cincinnati for a three-game series starting Friday. The Reds have several left-handed bats and the Cardinals wanted a second lefty in the bullpen, along with Randy Choate.
