Cardinals get big hit, beat Brewers 4-2

Sports

September 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Matt Holliday’s two-run home run in the sixth inning stunned Wily Peralta with the St. Louis Cardinals’ first hit and rookie Shelby Miller blanked the Milwaukee Brewers into the seventh inning of a 4-2 victory Tuesday night. Norichika Aoki of the Brewers struck out three times for the first time in the majors, the last against rookie lefty Kevin Siegrist with a runner on second to end the seventh. Aoki entered the game as the toughest batter to fan in the majors this year, averaging one per 17.2 at-bats.

Matt Carpenter and Matt Adams added RBIs in the seventh and eighth for the NL Central leaders, who are 4-0 to begin a nine-game homestand. After a day off, the Cardinals built on momentum from a three-game sweep of Pittsburgh. Miller allowed five hits with four strikeouts and two walks in 6 2/3 innings.

Hawkeyes leaning on Weisman

Sports

September 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa has done nearly everything it can think of spice up its offense. And yet through two games, Iowa’s best play has been to send 236-pound Mark Weisman into the middle and dare defenses to stop him. Weisman has blossomed into the team’s most consistent playmaker heading into Saturday’s game at Iowa State (0-1).

Weisman is ninth nationally with 280 yards rushing — on a team-high 50 carries — and has reached the 100-yard plateau twice this season. He set a career high with 30 carries in last week’s 28-14 win over Missouri State, finishing with 180 yards and two touchdowns.

Sports

September 10th, 2013 by Jim Field

The Board of Directors of the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union (IGHSAU) has selected Iowa Public Television (IPTV) as the television provider for its state tournament events.

The three-year agreement will begin with the 2014 Iowa Girls State Basketball Tournament championship games. IPTV will also televise the state finals in soccer, softball and volleyball. There are also plans to broadcast seasonal specials that will recap the swimming & diving, cross country and bowling state tournaments in the winter and the track & field, tennis and golf state championships in the spring.

“We are thrilled to partner with Iowa Public Television,” said IGHSAU Executive Director Mike Dick. “It was very important to us that every Iowan had the opportunity to watch our state tournaments on television. IPTV provides us with that opportunity. We are very happy to have the Iowa Girl showcased alongside all of the quality programming that IPTV provides to millions of Iowans each year.”

“We are extremely thrilled to produce and broadcast the Iowa Girls’ High School Athletic Union Championships showcasing athletes from around the state,” said IPTV Executive Director Molly Phillips. “Iowa Public Television can be received by all viewers in the state of Iowa no matter where they live and is the most watched public television station in the nation.”

Iowa Public Television is Iowa’s statewide public broadcasting network. IPTV provides quality, alternative programming that educates, enlightens and entertains Iowans throughout the state. Iowa Public Television began in Iowa in 1967 when the State Educational Radio and Television Facility Board was created and charged with developing a state network to broadcast educational programs.

A noncommercial, public-service mission enables IPTV to present an unequaled array of programs of lasting value to Iowans regardless of where they live or what they can afford. More than one million viewers a week turn to IPTV for programming that reflects a range of interests for Iowans in all demographic categories.

IPTV can be located on the following channels: Channel 11.1, Des Moines; Channel 12.1, Iowa City; Channel 21.1, Fort Dodge; Channel 24.1, Mason City; Channel 27.1, Sioux City; Channel 32.1, Waterloo; Channel 36.1,Red Oak; Channel 36.1, Davenport.
