Cardinals KO Kershaw, World Series-bound


October 19th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Carlos Beltran and the Cardinals stunned Clayton Kershaw with a four-run third inning, rookie Michael Wacha was again magnificent on the mound and St. Louis advanced to its second World Series in three seasons by roughing up the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-0 in Game 6 of the NL championship series Friday night.

Matt Carpenter sparked St. Louis’ big inning with a one-out double on the 11th pitch of his at-bat. Beltran singled him home and the Cardinals quickly removed all the suspense surrounding a team that squandered a 3-1 series lead in the NLCS last fall against San Francisco.

Game 1 of the World Series is Wednesday at the winner of the ALCS between the Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers. After losing Game 5 in Los Angeles, the Cardinals turned to Wacha once again. The right-hander was even better in outpitching Kershaw for the second time this series.

Chiefs’ Smith eschews gaudy stats for simple wins


October 18th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Every time Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith is flushed from the pocket, it seems that one of two things happens. Either he uses his fleet feet to scramble for yards, or he throws it away. Neither of which is a bad thing. The Chiefs have never had a quarterback who can make things happen on the ground with the same nimbleness as Smith. Nor have they had one in recent years who is smart enough to throw the ball into the third row of seats rather than take a sack or force a pass into coverage.

It’s an example of how selfless Smith has played this season. He has thrown just three interceptions during their 6-0 start. The Chiefs play Houston on Sunday. You can hear the game on KJAN. Kick-off is set for 3:25-p.m.

Cardinals need 1 more big start from Wacha


October 18th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — For four straight starts, Michael Wacha has been all but untouchable and appeared totally oblivious to the stakes. The St. Louis Cardinals need one more just like that from the pressure-proof rookie to get to the World Series for the second time in three years.

Wacha outpitched NL Cy Young front-runner Clayton Kershaw in Game 1 and the Cardinals won 1-0 on an unearned run. They’re matched again in Game 6 tonight (Friday night), the precocious right-hander and the lefty who’d be at the top of anyone’s list to work a must-win. The Dodgers brought the series back to St. Louis by muscling up on offense. Adrian Gonzalez hit two of their four homers in a 6-4 Game 5 victory Wednesday.

Runs should be a lot harder to come by in Game 6.

Ease with which No. 12 Baylor moves impresses ISU


October 18th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

WACO, Texas (AP) — Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads is impressed with more than just all the offense for 12th-ranked Baylor. Rhoads says there is just a relative ease with how the Bears “accomplish all these absurd numbers.” The Cyclones will be at Baylor on Saturday night. The Bears have won nine games in a row, one short of matching the 76-year-old school record.

The Bears are the nation’s most productive offense, averaging 715 total yards and 63 points a game. And those are updated numbers after Baylor was held to 451 yards and had to score two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to win 35-25 at Kansas State in the Bears’ first road game last Saturday. That was 241 yards and 34 points below their previous season-low totals.
