Cardinals activate 2B Mark Ellis from DL

Sports

April 16th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

MILWAUKEE (AP) – The St. Louis Cardinals have activated Mark Ellis from the 15-day disabled list and inserted him into the starting lineup at second base for Tuesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers.  Ellis missed the first 13 games of the season with left knee tendinitis. He went 1 for 3 while playing five innings during a rehab game Sunday at Triple-A Memphis.

Ellis signed a one-year deal with St. Louis in the offseason. The 11-year veteran is a .407 career hitter against Milwaukee. Shortstop Pete Kozma was optioned to Triple-A on Monday night to make room for Ellis on the 25-man roster.

Cards pitching shuts down Brewers again 6-1

Sports

April 16th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

MILWAUKEE (AP) – Shelby Miller struck out seven and allowed three hits over six innings, and Mark Ellis had two RBIs in his return from the disabled list to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 6-1 win Tuesday night over the Milwaukee Brewers. Matt Holliday and Jhonny Peralta each hit solo shots in the ninth off reliever Jim Henderson for the Cardinals, who handed Milwaukee its second straight loss following a nine-game winning streak.

Miller routinely fired fastballs clocked into the mid-90s past hitters before turning the game over to the bullpen in the seventh. Only Aramis Ramirez managed to break through off Miller hitting a solo homer in the fourth. The Brewers have just one run and six hits over the first two games of the three-game set with their NL Central rival.

Marco Estrada took the loss after allowing three runs over six innings.

Christofferson Inks Deal With Phoenix Mercury

Sports

April 15th, 2014 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa – It wasn’t long after the conclusion of the WNBA draft that a deal was struck for senior Hallie Christofferson to continue her basketball career. Christofferson will sign a free agent contract with the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury.

“I am very excited for the opportunity to continue playing basketball,” Christofferson said. “I am looking forward to what Phoenix has in store for me as I head to draft camp.”

Christofferson, a Hamlin, Iowa native, was a two-time Associated Press and WBCA Honorable Mention All-American and a two-time All-Big 12 first team selection. The forward led Iowa State in scoring for the second-consecutive season with 18.4 points. She scored in double figures in 29 of Iowa State’s 31 games, including 16 games with 20 or more points. She posted eight double-doubles and shot better than 50 percent from the field in 14 games.

“This is a great opportunity for Hallie,” head coach Bill Fennelly said. “Phoenix was excited to bring her to camp, and I am sure they will find out quickly how special Hallie is on and off the court!”

Christofferson recently wrapped up a standout career with the Cyclones after finishing her senior season sixth all-time in scoring (1,709) and eighth all-time in rebounds (762). Christofferson leaves Iowa State as one of the most decorated student-athletes in school history.
