Cubs RF Jorge Soler goes on DL with left ankle injury

Sports

June 4th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

MIAMI (AP) — Chicago Cubs right fielder Jorge Soler, who leads all NL rookies with 15 hits, has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left ankle injury. Soler might be ready to return as soon as he’s eligible, manager Joe Maddon said. Soler played in every game until he was hurt when he stepped on first base awkwardly trying to beat out a grounder Monday against the Marlins.

Junior Lake started in right field for the second game in a row Wednesday, and Maddon said he’ll be interested to see who emerges in Soler’s absence. One candidate will be outfielder Mike Baxter, who was recalled from Triple-A Iowa 24 hours after being sent down.

Soler is batting .265 with four homers and 19 RBIs.

APNewsBreak: US investigating U. Iowa in field hockey case

News, Sports

June 3rd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The U.S. Department of Education is launching an investigation into the University of Iowa’s handling of gender discrimination claims against athletic director Gary Barta. In a letter obtained by The Associated Press, the department’s Office for Civil Rights notified the school of the investigation last week and requested numerous documents.

Four members of the women’s field hockey team filed a complaint in August alleging that Barta’s decision to fire coach Tracey Griesbaum was part of a pattern of discrimination against strong female coaches. Barta has denied the allegation. He says Griesbaum was fired after an investigation found concerns about how some players were treated.

The Office for Civil Rights says it will look into the school’s failure to investigate a sex discrimination complaint against Barta filed by students in October.

Lackey, Cardinals defeat Milwaukee 7-4 to win series

Sports

June 3rd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — John Lackey pitched seven innings and Matt Carpenter had two hits and drove in two runs, leading the Cardinals to a 7-4 victory Wednesday over the Milwaukee Brewers. St. Louis improved the best home record in the majors to 22-7 and won all three series during its nine-game homestand.

The 36-year-old Lackey (4-3) scattered 10 hits while striking out five and walking one. He is 4-1 in four career starts against Milwaukee. Lackey has gone 7-1 in 11 regular-season starts and one playoff outing at Busch Stadium since joining the Cardinals after a trade with Boston. Lackey is 4-1 in six starts at home this season. Trevor Rosenthal recorded his 17th save by getting the final two outs on a double play.

Milwaukee third baseman Hector Gomez crashed into the stands behind third and left the game against the St. Louis Cardinals. Gomez was trying to catch a foul ball hit by Jason Heyward in the sixth inning on Wednesday. Gomez hit the short wall at full speed and fell head-first into the seats. After being looked at, he left the game under his own power.

A Brewers spokesman says Gomez was examined by a doctor for a possible concussion and the results were negative. Hernan Perez moved from second base to third and Luis Sardinas came in to play second.

Iowa State AD Jamie Pollard Statement on Hoiberg

Sports

June 3rd, 2015 by Jim Field

“On behalf of Iowa State University, I want to personally thank Fred (Hoiberg) for restoring a proud tradition to Cyclone men’s basketball. When Fred interviewed five years ago, he outlined a plan for how he would bring back the magic to Hilton Coliseum. He certainly delivered on that vision and has built a championship program in the process. We owe him our sincerest thanks.

Although Fred’s connections to Iowa State are evident on so many fronts, he has always expressed a desire to coach in the NBA if the right opportunity presented itself. We are happy that he’ll realize his personal dream and wish him success going forward.

We’re excited for the future of Iowa State basketball as we have an outstanding group of young men preparing for what should be another terrific season, and we embrace the opportunity to identify a new leader for the Cyclone men’s basketball program.

ISU President Steven Leath and I will conduct a national search for a new coach, and we are confident that our basketball program will continue on the upward trajectory it has established. We are energized to capitalize on the momentum of our program as we pursue a new coach at Iowa State.”

As in other coaching searches, the Iowa State Athletics Department will not have further comment on that process until a new coach is introduced.
