Wacha, Cardinals edge Pirates 2-1 to knot NLDS

Sports

October 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Rookie Michael Wacha took a no-hit bid into the eighth inning and the St. Louis Cardinals showed off their October poise, edging the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1 Monday and setting up a winner-take-all Game 5 in the NL division series. The Cardinals improved to 7-1 over the last three years when facing elimination in the postseason.

Pedro Alvarez hit his third home run of the series, connecting with one out in the eighth for Pittsburgh’s only hit in Game 4. Wacha and the St. Louis bullpen made Matt Holliday’s two-run homer stand up. Trevor Rosenthal worked around a two-out walk in the ninth, retiring Andrew McCutchen on a popup for his first postseason save.

Game 5 will be Wednesday in St. Louis, with ace Adam Wainwright starting for the Cardinals. The Pirates had not announced their starter.

UI wrestler cited for shooting duck

Sports

October 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa wrestler Senior Ethen Lofthouse has been cited by police for shooting a duck with a bow and arrow outside of his residence. Iowa City police on Friday cited Lofthouse, a senior and a two-time All-American, for illegal hunting. The university says it’s aware of the situation and is working with Lofthouse through a process outlined in its student-athlete code of conduct.

This is the second incident involving Iowa wrestlers and illegal hunting in less than a year. Freshmen Connor Ryan and Alex Meyer were suspended from the team last November after they were arrested for illegally hunting rabbits on campus.

Iowa State rallies around feisty Rhoads

Sports

October 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Paul Rhoads put Iowa State in the national spotlight for the first time in years with a fiery postgame tirade following last week’s 31-30 loss to Texas. The rant helped illustrate why Rhoads might be the most popular 1-3 coach in the country heading into Saturday’s game at No. 20 Texas Tech (5-0, 1-0 Big 12).

Iowa State’s fans, administration and players remain committed to Rhoads. His enthusiasm for the Cyclones hasn’t worn off either — even with their hopes for a winning season in 2013 in peril. The fan base has spoken with crowds of at least 50,000 at Jack Trice Stadium for a school-record 16 games in a row. Athletic director Jamie Pollard fully committed to Rhoads before the 2012 season with a contract extension through 2021.

Tony Stewart has 3rd leg surgery

Sports

October 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (AP) – NASCAR driver Tony Stewart is recovering from a third surgery on his right leg following an August crash at an Iowa sprint car track.  Stewart-Haas Racing said the procedure was done Monday to to examine and close a wound on his shin stemming from the broken tibia and fibula he suffered in the Aug. 5 crash at Southern Iowa Speedway. He remains hospitalized for observation.

The team said the surgery was a proactive measure and Stewart is expected back with the team next season.  He also had surgery on Aug. 6 and Aug. 8, with the latter procedure done to insert a metal rod inside the tibia.
