DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Mark Calcavecchia and Wes Short Junior shot 6-under 66 on Friday to share the first-round lead in the Champions Tour’s Principal Charity Classic. Calcavecchia, third last year at the Wakonda Club, had three straight birdies on the back nine for his best start of the season. Short birdied the 18th hole to join Calcavecchia atop the leaderboard.

Bobby Clampett, Peter Senior and Shane Lowery were a stroke back.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have juggled their bench, recalling rookie outfielder Randal Grichuk from Triple-A Memphis and optioning outfielder Shane Robinson to that club. The 22-year-old Grichuk hit his team-leading 10th home run Thursday night and is batting .315 with 32 RBIs. He’s among the PCL leaders in slugging percentage and is batting .451 against left-handers.

The Cardinals acquired Grichuk, a first-round pick by the Angels in 2009, from that team in the offseason. He was 3 for 21 in an earlier stint with St. Louis, making four starts. The 29-year-old Robinson appeared in 23 games and was batting .152 with two RBIs.

Olympic champ Douglas to train with US team

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Reigning Olympic champion Gabby Douglas’ comeback is picking up speed. Next stop? Texas. Douglas will work out in front of U.S. women’s gymnastics team coordinator Martha Karolyi next week, a major step toward her return to elite competition. The 18-year-old hasn’t competed since winning a pair of gold medals, including the all-around title, at the 2012 London Olympics.

Douglas recently reunited with coach Liang Chow in Iowa after taking a seven-month break to spend time with her family in Southern California. There’s still no timetable for when she’ll be ready for competition. It’s nearly three months to nationals in Pittsburgh in late August, with the world championships in China in early October. Douglas has said she hopes to compete at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Flowers, Houston absent as Chiefs begin workouts

Sports

May 30th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs coach Andy Reid downplayed the absences of cornerback Brandon Flowers and linebacker Justin Houston from the first week of voluntary, full-squad workouts. That likely won’t do much to quell speculation about why they were missing on Thursday.

Flowers gradually lost playing time last season, and his bloated contract could mean that the Chiefs are trying to restructure the deal or trade him. It could also mean the Chiefs are thinking about cutting him to save valuable salary cap space. As for Houston, he becomes a free agent after the upcoming season. The Chiefs have expressed interest in signing him to a long-term deal, but they are cash-strapped at present.

The Chiefs are also negotiating with quarterback Alex Smith, who is entering the final year of his contract.

Morse propels Giants past Cardinals 6-5

May 30th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Michael Morse homered and drove in three runs and Pablo Sandoval homered and scored twice to propel the San Francisco Giants to a 6-5 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series. The Giants have won seven of eight and the Cardinals have dropped three of four to start a nine-game home stand.

Gregor Blanco scored from second on Angel Pagan’s single to center off Carlos Martinez to tie the score at 4-4 in the eighth. Pagan moved to second on Peter Bourjos’ throwing error. After Sandoval was intentionally walked, Morse doubled to deep center to drive in Pagan and Sandoval for a 6-4 lead.

Javier Lopez got two groundouts in relief of Ryan Vogelsong for his first win since Sept. 22, 2013. Sergio Romo held on for his 17th save in 19 chances.
