Work continues on “new look” Jack Trice Stadium

Sports

May 18th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

When the Iowa State football team takes the field for its season opener against UNI, the Cyclones will feel like they are playing in a brand new stadium. Work continues on a new addition to close the south end zone and when it is completed Jack Trice will become the third largest stadium in the Big 12 Conference.

ISU Coach Paul Rhodes says “The feel that I get every day driving up, is one of just sheer excitement, and it is a drastically changed stadium – and that’s empty. When we get it filled up on Sept. 5th against UNI, the support that will be generated that way as well as the reward to the Cyclone fans for something they’ve been wanting a long time, is finally going to come to fruition.”

Rhoads says work will be completed before the start of the season. He says he’s been promised 61,000 seats will be available for the season opener.

Wong, Lynn star as Cardinals beat Tigers to avoid sweep

Sports

May 18th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Kolten Wong hit a tiebreaking home run in the sixth inning and Lance Lynn got his fifth career RBI to back his dominant pitching as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Detroit Tigers 2-1 on Sunday night to avoid a three-game sweep. Miguel Cabrera’s RBI double in the first was the only damage against Lynn (3-3), who gave a weary bullpen a break before walking the last two batters he faced at the end of his 7 1-3 innings.

Seth Maness’ only pitch got a double-play ball to end the eighth and Trevor Rosenthal finished for his 13th save. Matt Carpenter added two hits and Peter Bourgos tripled and scored on Lynn’s single in the third. The Cardinals improved to a major league-best 25-12 despite having two players thrown at the plate. Alfredo Simon (4-2) gave up two runs in six innings for the Tigers, whose three-game winning streak ended.

 

Cardinals to start Garcia Thursday; Tuivailala recalled

Sports

May 17th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The Cardinals are giving lefty Jaime Garcia his first start of the season on Thursday. Garcia had a setback in spring training from thoracic outlet surgery, performed to alleviate numbness and tingling in his pitching arm and hand. He threw six innings in a minor league rehab start this weekend, and St. Louis needed a starter after Tyler Lyons faltered Saturday.

The 28-year-old Garcia appeared in just 16 games combined the last two seasons. He was a 13-game winner each of his first two seasons in the rotation in 2010 and 2011. Garcia will be starting against the Mets in New York. St. Louis also added bullpen depth Sunday, recalling right-hander Sam Tuivailala from Triple-A Memphis.

Lyons, who made three starts in the slot formerly held by injured ace Adam Wainwright, was optioned to Memphis, a day after lasting just 3 2-3 innings in a loss to Detroit. The 22-year-old Tuivailala worked two innings of relief in a 14-inning victory over Pittsburgh on May 3 and appeared in two games last September. He was 2-0 with a 2.13 ERA and three saves in three chances in 12 games at Memphis.

Lyons is 0-0 with a 5.54 ERA, striking out 17 in 13 innings but also surrendering 18 hits.

NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — Chris Buescher pulled away on a restart in a green-white-checkered finish Sunday to win the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at the Iowa Speedway. Buescher raced to his first victory of the season to give Roush-Fenway Racing its fifth Iowa win.

Chase Elliott appeared poised for an easy win before a late caution set up overtime. Buescher was the beneficiary, and he took advantage with a perfectly executed restart. Elliott finished second after leading a race-high 114 laps. Erik Jones was third, followed by Brian Scott and Ryan Blaney.

NE assistant soccer coach dies in Cass County, IA crash Sat. morning

(Check back for updates to this story)

An assistant soccer coach for the University of Nebraska was killed Saturday morning during a crash on Interstate 80 in western Iowa. KETV in Omaha reports 31-year old Peter Underwood was traveling on a recruiting trip near Atlantic, when the eastbound car he was in was struck by a pickup truck traveling in the wrong direction on I-80, near the Marne exit. The crash happened at around 7-a.m.  Additional details about the crash had not been released as of 8-p.m. Saturday.

University officials said Underwood had just completed his fourth season with the Nebraska women’s soccer program, serving the last two as a full-time coach and the previous two as a volunteer assistant. He is survived by his wife, Austin, and their two young children, daughter, Lyla, and son, Jude.

A statement issued by Huskers Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst, said “The University of Nebraska Athletics family is deeply saddened by the loss of Peter Underwood and our deepest sympathy and prayers go out to his wife, Austin, their children, Lyla and Jude, and his extended family and friends.” Eichorst said also,”Peter was a beacon of positive light, a wonderfully talented coach, and an even better family man of great character and faith. He will be missed by all of us.”

Underwood helped the Huskers to the Big Ten Conference regular-season and tournament titles in 2013, as Nebraska posted a 19-4-1 record and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. A native of London, England, Underwood moved to the United States and played one season of varsity soccer at Concord before the program was dropped.

Services are pending. Condolences can be sent to: Underwood Family, P.O. Box 880120, One Memorial Stadium, Lincoln, NE 68588-0120.
