Cubs Tag Wainwright, Spoil Cardinals Home Opener

Sports

April 13th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Ian Stewart hit a three-run homer in the first inning, Bryan LaHair later connected for a grand slam and the Chicago Cubs hammered Adam Wainwright, spoiling the St. Louis Cardinals’ home opener with a 9-5 victory on Friday. Starlin Castro had three hits and a walk for the Cubs. Chicago has scored 17 runs the last two games after totaling 19 runs in the first six. Wainwright’s first start at home since Sept. 19, 2010, was a total mess from the get-go and tied his worst ever from a statistical standpoint — eight earned runs in just three innings. His outing unraveled just moments after pregame pomp and circumstance that featured 91-year-old Hall of Famer Stan Musial waving from a golf cart to fans who gave him a standing ovation.

Gable Fired Up for Olympic Trials in Iowa City

Sports

April 13th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Wrestling legend Dan Gable has spent the last 40 years working to help grow the sport that’s defined his life. Supporters won’t need to look at the statue set to be unveiled in Gable’s honor in Iowa City to see the ultimate payoff for those efforts. The U.S. Olympic Team Trials will be held in Carver-Hawkeye Arena on April 21-22 before what is expected to be the largest crowd in the event’s history. Organizers have already sold more than 10,000 tickets, far surpassing the record crowd of 9,434 set 12 years ago in Dallas. The enthusiasm in Iowa has been spurred by four decades of work by the 63-year-old Gable, a former Olympic gold medalist and successful coach.
