Wainwright loses and game, too, as Mets beat Cardinals


August 26th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright lost his glove trying to tag out Yoenis Cespedes and lost the game, too, when Alejandro De Aza homered and drove in five runs to send the New York Mets over St. Louis 10-6 Thursday night.

Seth Lugo (1-2) pitched five scoreless innings for his first big league win. The Mets took two of three to win their first series at Busch Stadium since 2008. Brandon Moss hit two home runs for the Cardinals and Jedd Gyorko and Stephen Piscotty also connected.

The Mets led 3-0 in the fifth when Wainwright (9-8) and Cespedes were involved in a bizarre play. Cespedes tried to go from first to third on a bloop single by James Loney. When several Cardinals chased the ball, Wainwright covered third base. Cespedes slid and his cleat pinned Wainwright’s glove to the bag — he would’ve been out, but when Wainwright pulled away his hand, the mitt stayed stuck under Cespedes’ foot.

Because Wainwright didn’t control the ball, Cespedes was called safe in a ruling upheld by replay. Moments later, De Aza hit a three-run homer to make it 7-0.

Chiefs cut wide receiver Mike Williams, safety Stevie Brown


August 25th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Chiefs released veteran wide receiver Mike Williams and safety Stevie Brown on Wednesday. Neither had played much during training camp and the preseason. Williams was trying to rejuvenate his career in Kansas City after his career fizzled with Tampa Bay and Buffalo.

Williams had three straight 60-plus reception seasons with the Buccaneers after he was chosen in the fourth round out of Syracuse. Brown was also trying to make a comeback. He had eight interceptions with the New York Giants in 2012, but has only appeared in 16 games over the past three seasons.

Cardinals hit 3 HRs off deGrom, break loose to beat Mets


August 25th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Matt Carpenter, Randal Grichuk and Stephen Piscotty homered off Mets starter Jacob deGrom, powering the St. Louis Cardinals past New York 8-1 Wednesday night. Carpenter set the tone, hitting a leadoff home run in the first inning. The Cardinals went on to win for the seventh time in nine games. Piscotty and Yadier Molina each had three of the Cardinals’ season high-tying 19 hits.

Carlos Martinez (12-7) gave up one run and four hits over eight innings. He also got two hits himself. Roughed up for the second straight start, deGrom (7-7) allowed five runs on 12 hits in 4 2/3 innings. He was tagged for a career-worst eight runs and 13 hits in his previous outing against San Francisco.

Tennessee scores 6 runs in 4th, 7 in 5th to top Iowa in LLWS


August 24th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — RJ Moore hit a go-ahead three-run homer in a six-run fourth inning and Goodlettsville, Tennessee beat Johnston, Iowa 14-3 in five innings on Wednesday in an elimination game of the Little League World Series.

After Moore’s shot over the center-field wall, Tennessee loaded the bases and Zach McWilliams hit a bloop double to score two and Tyler Jones scored from first after an error for a 7-3 lead. The bases were full again in the fifth for Tennessee. With no outs and the infield in, Brock Duffer rolled it through the hole on the left side to score two and Ryan Oden crossed home on an error to make it 10-3. Duffer scored on a fielder’s choice.

Tyler Jones drove in Tanner Jones from second for a 12-3 lead and Robert Carroll sent it up the middle to score two more. Kaiden Dinh put Iowa in front 3-1 with a three-run homer in the third.
