June 28th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Michael Wacha pitched six solid innings, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 8-1 on Saturday night to become the first major league team with 50 wins. Jason Heyward reached four times in St. Louis’ fifth straight victory. The major league-best Cardinals (50-24) have five winning streaks of five games or more this season.

Wacha (10-3) allowed one run and six hits, bouncing back from a rough start at Philadelphia. The right-hander was tagged for five runs and eight hits against the Phillies in his worst start of the season last Sunday. Chicago has lost four in a row after a four-game winning streak.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State is in the final stages of a major renovation to the south end zone at Jack Trice Stadium, highlighting a $60 million expansion that’s set to be completed in late August.

It’s arguably the most ambitious renovation in the 40-year life of the stadium, which will soon be the third-largest in the Big 12 with a capacity of 61,000. Iowa State opens the season Sept. 5 when it hosts Northern Iowa behind what should be the biggest crowd in school history.

Lynn helps Cardinals complete sweep by beating Marlins 5-1

June 26th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

MIAMI (AP) — Lance Lynn came off the disabled list to pitch six shutout innings in his first outing since June 7, and the St. Louis Cardinals completed a three-game sweep Thursday by beating Miami 5-1. Lynn (5-4), who had been sidelined with a strained forearm, allowed only two hits and lowered his ERA to 2.84.

Backup infielder Pete Kozma, who came into the game hitless in his past 21 at-bats, singled three times, scored twice and drove in a run for his second RBI this year. His average rose to from .093 to .140.

The sweep was the first for the Cardinals in Miami since Aug. 4-7, 2011. St. Louis (48-24) moved a season-high 24 games above .500, while Miami (30-44) fell a season-worst 14 games under .500. Miami’s Adeiny Hechavarria homered with two outs in the ninth to avert a shutout. Dan Haren (6-5) allowed four runs in six-plus innings.

ISU adds in-state PF Brady Ernst

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Prep forward Brady Ernst says he’ll play for Iowa State next season. Ernst, who is 6-foot-9 and 215 pounds, is the first recruit for new coach Steve Prohm. He is from Clinton, Iowa. Ernst adds depth to the Cyclones front court, which is talented but thin beyond Georges Niang, Jameel McKay and Abdel Nader.

Ernst tore the ACL in his right knee in late February. But Ernst tells The Associated Press that he’ll be able to resume basketball activities by late August at the earliest. Ernst averaged 17 points and 13 rebounds a game last season and was the state’s top-rated recruit, according to the website Prep Hoops Iowa.

Ernst had offers from a number of Missouri Valley schools, including Northern Iowa.
