Angels host Cardinals for 1st time, win 5-1

Sports

July 3rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Jered Weaver earned his second win of an injury-plagued season with help from a five-run second inning, and the Los Angeles Angels extended their winning streak to seven games Tuesday night with a 5-1 victory over St. Louis in the Cardinals’ first game at Angel Stadium. St. Louis was the only National League club that had never played at the “Big A,” having hosted the three previous interleague series between the teams in 2002, 2007 and 2010.

Three-time NL MVP Albert Pujols, who spent his first 12 major league seasons with the Cardinals before signing a $240 million, 10-year contract with the Angels in December 2011 as a free agent, played his first game against his former club and was 0 for 3 with two strikeouts and a walk as the designated hitter while Mark Trumbo started at first base.

Lance Armstrong commits to RAGBRAI event in Iowa

July 3rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong says he’ll return to his bike later this month for a state-long trek across Iowa. Armstrong tells the Des Moines Register that he and staffers from his Austin, Texas-based bicycle shop will ride for “three or four days” in RAGBRAI, an annual event sponsored by the newspaper that runs from the Missouri to Mississippi rivers.

This will mark the fifth visit to RAGGRAI for Armstrong, who told interviewer Oprah Winfrey in January after years of denials that he doped for all seven of his Tour de France wins from 1999-2005. Armstrong says his impending trip to Iowa isn’t a statement or an experiment. He says he simply wants to ride with what is typically “a friendly group of people that share the same interests.”

A’s rally to nip Cardinals 7-5

Sports

June 30th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Jed Lowrie hit a go-ahead, two-run home run in the fourth inning, Tommy Milone overcame a rocky start to win for the first time in nearly four weeks and the Oakland Athletics held on to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-5 on Sunday. Josh Donaldson also homered and reached base four times for the A’s, who padded their AL-best home record by taking two of three in this interleague series. Oakland has won 16 of its last 19 games at the Coliseum.

Milone gave up three home runs and pitched with runners in scoring position in four of the six innings he worked, but got the win after the A’s rallied from deficits of 3-0 and 5-2. Carlos Beltran, Allen Craig and Matt Carpenter all homered for the Cardinals.
