May 19th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The No. 4 NASCAR Xfinity Series car driven by Ross Chastain at Iowa has been penalized following a scary incident during practice last week. Crew chief Gary Cogswell has been fined $15,000 because a weight flew off of Chastain’s JD Motorsports car on Saturday. The ballast crushed the window of Jamie Dick, who was behind Chastain, and struck Dick in the helmet.

Cogswell and crew chief Charles Kent were also put on probation through the end of the year. Chastain finished Sunday’s race in 32nd place.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — An incoming recruit for the Northern Iowa basketball team has been charged with operating under the influence. Ames police spokesman Jason Tuttle says Aarias Austin is also facing a possession of marijuana charge following an incident on May 1st. According to a police report, a clerk at a convenience store called police about a customer who reportedly smelled like marijuana. Officers located Austin’s vehicle and arrested him following a field sobriety test.

Officers say they also found a small amount of marijuana in Austin’s vehicle. Panthers coach Ben Jacobson tells the Des Moines Register that he won’t take any action until the legal process is complete. Austin’s attorney, Scott Michels, declined comment.

Austin spent the past two seasons playing for Des Moines Area Community College.

Mayberry has winning hit in 14th, Mets beat Cardinals 2-1

Sports

May 19th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

NEW YORK (AP) — Pinch-hitter John Mayberry Jr. had an RBI infield hit with one out in the bottom of the 14th inning, lifting the New York Mets to a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night after blowing another lead for Matt Harvey. Lucas Duda beat a shifted, drawn-in infield with an opposite field hit for a run-scoring single off John Lackey in the fourth, but Jason Heyward had a sacrifice fly in the ninth off closer Jeurys Familia as the Mets wasted another 1-0 lead for their ace.

The division leaders then struck out a combined 12 times in extras before Sam Tuivailala (0-1) walked Eric Campbell and Duda to open the 14th. Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal relived and got Michael Cuddyer to ground into a fielder’s choice. Rosenthal then walked intentionally Daniel Murphy to load the bases.

Mayberry, who entered batting .114, grounded the first pitch off diving drawn-in shortstop Jhonny Peralta’s glove.

 

Chiefs wrap up 3-day look at rookies in minicamp

Sports

May 19th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Mitch Morse would have been hard-pressed to find a better opportunity. Start with the fact that the rookie offensive lineman was drafted by the Chiefs, just down the road from where he played in college. Throw in the fact that he was picked well before most experts anticipated — and what that meant for his first contract.

Then consider this: The Chiefs watched their starting center sign with the Oakland Raiders in free agency, leaving a gaping void in the middle of their offensive line. Suddenly, the second-round draft pick could be counted on by a playoff contender.
